Waves in general are channelling energy, and therefore sea waves bring the magical energy of the sea to the shore as well as they can take energy from the shore into the inner sea.
The procedure of the Forty Waves uses both these capabilities. They use the returning wave to send unwanted energies in the sea and the coming waves to bring the blessings from the sea. It is a common knowledge that the purifying powers of the sea are incomparable, therefore, there is no need to worry about the negative energy that is sent in the sea. It will be purified easily. On the other hand the sea does not have unlimited power to fight pollution so, please respect this great natural and magical source and keep it clean.
Although the spell may be done for either purposes of removing jinx, bad luck or other negativities and problems or to bring good luck, and other blessings, during the procedure we actually do both. When the waves return back to the sea we release ourselves from the problems holding us back and when the waves come we receive the wanted blessings. This is a whole therapy.
How to collect The Forty Waves?
Let us see how we perform this spell or simple ritual. You will only need a small glass bottle to collect the forty waves and forty stones to symbolize the problems and use them to send them away. Optionally you may burn some rock sugar while performing the ritual.
Choose a day with a clean sky. We mostly prefer performing the Forty Waves early in the morning on sunny days, under the colourful sky of the rising sun if possible, but the setting sun as well as the moonlight work quite nicely most of the times. Sometimes, before the collection of the Forty Waves we perform a salutation to the Royal Powers of the Sea, a procedure we are going to see in a following article. The Salutation to the Royal Powers of teh Sea is being done early in the morning.
So, if you have a yard, collect forty stones from your yard. They don’t need to be big ones. Actually prefer small ones. If you don’t have a yard, then collect the stones from the coast.
Light the rock sugar as incense if you are using it and then stand in the sea, having the bottle in one of your hands and the stone somewhere you can easily reach. Give yourself some time to get tuned with the rhythm of the waves. Then start during a returning wave.
