The Law of One, Book IV, Session 95
Questioner: Thank you.
The new room that we choose for this working will of course be carefully cleaned and marred surfaces made well.
We shall also use the Banishing Ritual of the Lesser Pentagram prior to a working.
Is there anything else that Ra could suggest?
I would like, also, to know if there is anything in particular that you might suggest with respect to the particular place that has been chosen for our new location?
Ra: I am Ra. We scan the recent memory configurations of the questioner.
Firstly, there have been some less than harmonious interactions within this dwelling.
The dynamics of this interaction were potent enough to attract a lesser thought-form.
Therefore, we suggest the salting and ritual cleansing by blessed water of all windows and doorways which offer adit into the domicile or any out-buildings thereof.
Further, we suggest the hanging of the cut garlic clove in the portion of the room which has accommodated those whose enjoyment has turned into a darker emotion centering upon the area we find you call the wet bar, also the room intended for the sleeping which is found near the kitchen area.
The appropriate words used to bid farewell to those of the lower astral shall be used in connection with the hanging of the garlic cloves for the period of approximately 36 of your hours.
We believe that this is equivalent to two of your night periods and one of your lit periods.
This should cleanse the house as you find it to the extent that it is neutral in its vibrations of harmony, love, and thanksgiving which this group shall then, as the incarnational experience proceeds, offer to the domicile.
Questioner: I am assuming that we would prepare the blessed water the same as we prepare the water for the instrument to drink after a session and would then wipe the windows and doors with this water.
This would probably have to be done in a bucket.
I would like to know if this is correct, and what was meant by salting the windows and doors?
Ra: I am Ra.
you may bless the water yourselves or may request socalled holy water from any blessed place; that is, blessed by intention.
the water shall be carefully shaken from the fingers along the sills of all windows and doors as they have been opened.
prior to the sprinkling of this cleansing, blessing sacrament of water, the salt shall be trailed along these sills in a line and again allowed to exist in this configuration for 36 to 48 hours.
Then the virgin broom may ritually sweep the salt out of each window and doorway, sweeping with each stroke the less fortunate of the vibrations within the dwelling which might find coexistence with group difficult.
Questioner: I assume that you mean that we should put the salt only on the outer doorway sills and not on the inner doorway sills in the house. Is that correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
We cannot express the nature of salt and water and garlic with clarity enough to inform you as to the efficacy with which salt absorbs vibrations which have been requested to move into salt when salt has been given water.
We cannot express the full magical nature of your water, nor can we express the likeness and attractiveness of the garlic cut to lower astral forms.
The attractiveness is negative and no service-to-self astral form will accept coexistence with the cut garlic.
Therefore, we offer the suggestions.
We also request, carefully, that the broom be clean and that the garlic be burned.
The virginity of the broom is most efficacious.
Questioner: Let me see if I have the scenario correctly in mind.
I’ll repeat my version of it.
We would hang fresh-cut garlic in the area of the wet bar and in the area of the bedroom that is adjacent to the kitchen area.
We would salt all window sills and all outer wall door sills and then sprinkle blessed water from our fingers on the salted areas.
We would then say the appropriate words to bid farewell to lower astrals.
Those words I am not sure of.
Would Ra comment on the scenario that I have stated?
Ra: I am Ra. Your grasp of our suggestions is good.
We note that the salt be poured in the straight line with no gaps.
There are various ritual words of blessing and farewell to entities such as you are removing.
We might suggest the following.
When the salt is laid you may repeat
“We praise the one Creator which gave to salt the ability to enable those friends, to which we wish to bid farewell, to find a new home.”
As the water is sprinkled you may say
“We give thanks to the one Creator for the gift of water. Over it the Creator moves Its hand and stirs Its will to be done.”
The hanging of the cut garlic may be accompanied by the words
“We praise the one Creator for the gift of garlic and bless its ability to offer to those friends to whom we wish to bid farewell the arrow which points their way of egress.”
When the sweeping is done you may say
“We praise the one Creator and give thanksgiving for the spiritual cleanliness of this dwelling place.”
As the garlic is burned you may say
“We give thanks to the one Creator for the gift of spiritual cleanliness in our dwelling place and seal the departure of all those who have left by this exit by the consuming of this substance” .
Questioner: Is there any place more appropriate than any other to hang the garlic in the room; for instance, over the windows or anything like that?
I know that it is supposed to be hung in the area of the bar but I meant in the bedroom.
Is there any more appropriate place than another?
Ra: I am Ra. The windows and the doorways are most appropriate and, in addition, we suggest the salting and sprinkling of any door which may lead elsewhere than out of the dwelling in order to afford to the entities the understanding that they are not desired elsewhere within the dwelling.
Questioner: I understand that the garlic is to be used at the bar area and the bedroom that is close to the kitchen and has an exit onto the carport.
If I am correct, those are the only two places that it is to be used.
This is correct, isn’t it?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Questioner: The sequence of events that I am considering is first the painting and then the cleaning, then the moving in of the furniture, then the salting and use of garlic.
Is this as good as any other sequence or would another sequence be better?
Ra: I am Ra. Any sequence which results in the cleansing is acceptable.
It is to be noted that the thresholds are not to be crossed during the cleansing.
Since such stricture upon use of the limen may affect your considerations we make note of this.
Questioner: Would Ra comment on the technique of blessing the water that we will use to sprinkle the salt?
I assume that we just sprinkle the water directly off of our finger tips onto the line of salt.
How much water, in general, should be sprinkled on the salt?
How wet should we get it?
I would like to get this done right.
Ra: I am Ra. The blessing of the water may be that one we have previously given, or it may be that one which is written within the liturgy of this instrument’s distortion of the worship of the one Creator, or it may simply be obtained from what you call your Catholic Church in the form of holy water.
The intention of blessing is the notable feature of blessed water.
The water may be sprinkled not so that all salt is soaked but so that a goodly portion has been dampened.
This is not a physical working.
The substances need to be seen in their ideal state so that water may be seen to be enabling the salt.

Session 101, December 21, 1982
Questioner: Would cleansing of the nature suggested for the other house just south of the airport in Atlanta be advisable for the 893 Oakdale Road address?
Ra: I am Ra. We note that any residence, whether previously benign, as is the one of which you speak, or previously of malignant character, needs the basic cleansing of the salt, water, and broom.
The benign nature of the aforementioned domicile is such that the cleansing could be done in two portions; that is, no egress or entrance through any but one opening for one cleansing.
Then egress and entrance from all other places while the remaining portal is properly sealed.
The placing of salt may be done at the place which is not being sealed during the first of the cleansings, and the salt may be requested to act as seal and yet allow the passage of gentle spirits such as yourselves.
We suggest that you speak to this substance and name each entity for which permission is needed in order to pass.
Let no person pass without permission being asked of the salt.
This is the case in the residence of which you speak.
