Disclaimer: Before reading any further on this post I kindly ask anyone viewing this blessing to click [here] and learn a little bit about the environmental dangers one may cause in collecting seashells. I am in no way telling anyone that they can not collect se shells (I myself have a growing collection). I am merely just sharing information some might find interesting.
Having said that, I have to say that sea witchcraft is not just about collecting a seashell or two to use in decorating your shrine/altar with and to later use in practicing Sea witchcraft for your own spiritual use. Sea witchcraft is about doing what you can to help save our Ocean.
Location: The Ocean.
Timing: Morning; anytime during the day.
- Go to the beach and look for a seashell. Be sure that there are no living creatures in or near the seashell beforehand. If there is, leave that shell alone and look for another one.
- Once you find the right seashell, pick it up and cup it with both hands. With your mouth close to the shell, whisper into it:
By the powers of the Sun, Sand and Sea,
I bless you to stay where you’re meant to be.
- When you’re done, put the seashell down. If you see any more shells, feel free to do the same to those too.
- Whatever you do, do not pick up a sea shell. The purpose of this blessing is to allow seashells do what they’re suppose to do for the environment.
