Copyrighted by Lorna Tedder. Originally published in Third Degree of Separation. I started off the mundane New Year with a wedding, one I wrote channeled? Yes, my first ever as a High Priestess. Not until death-do-us- part, but for all lifetimes to come. And then leave immediately. I made certain they understood the ramifications and the seriousness of their vows and gave them three chances to back out.
Me, I felt totally Zenned out the whole time. The guests were wrapped in blankets, but my hair was damp with perspiration from the energy surge. The ritual itself was somewhere between a handfasting and an initiation, with the two of them taking their vows to be bound not to the Gods but to each other. And yes, I know full well that it is indeed better to rush upon the blade than to enter such a union with fear or doubt in the heart but rather in perfect love and perfect trust.
But give a couple a sharp instrument? Let the fun begin! It was very telling. They wanted to know, would I, as the facilitator of this ritual, make the cuts for them? They had to be willing to do it themselves. The bride went first, pleading forgiveness and offering up kisses and then stabbing the hell out of his finger. He took at least 15 minutes to work on her finger. He squirmed for so long about doing anything that might hurt her that she asked if she could prick her own.
They had to be willing to do each other. He finally made a shallow enough dip into her finger that he finally got a tiny pink dot under the skin and squeezed it until he got a single drop of blood to the surface. Good morning, i dont know really how to say or ask this but, would you be able to tell me what is involved or needed?
But such a union has risk. When two who are awake are then tied eternal into one. Easier said- two spirits are rendered, broken down, then formed into one spirit. So if in this plane one was to die, part of the spirit is in limbo. Tied to itself, but unable to inhabit the vessel as a whole.

There is a tradition children do called "Being Blood Brothers" I do not know it is also in world, as I have never heard of it.
This tradition is, 2 people cut their somewhere in their hand. And they touch the bleeding area together, and this friendship is very, very strong that goes for years, maybe to grave, thats why not a lot of people don't do it.
Since magic is about observation, I wanted to bring magic into this not safe practice. A spell, nah, a very simple ritual, action, etc Atleast 2 cadles are lit. If you can, light seven. You want all universe to witness this event. Or you might just use symbolizm to call elements.
The rest of the candles must be used for your patron deities. For yours and your partners.
The blood is something that carries a great deal amount of magic energy, because it carries life energy along with it. Just like "a special type" of magic I'm afraid to say the name of After this, cut the head of your fingers, or side of your hand, just a little bit. Put that cleaver back. After that, took a deep breath and put the bleeding parts together. Chant the following, together. Blood mixed, magic connected. Never make broken this bond. After this.

But if one dies. The other dies too. Thing might get some bad reviews. But I wanted to share it for the ones who might find it useful. Oh god I remember doing this with my friend once in Virginia, as she suggested it, and I thought nothing of it. Except we didn't really touch the blood together, just made a small scratch as we both knew how actual cutting deep can cause infections such as how teens in Texas died from theirs, but we kinda did a high five sort of thing.Sage has been a witch for 25 years.

Yes, blood can be dangerous— both magically and mundanely. But fire can also be dangerous, and yet no one would think to tell you not to use it to cook your meals. You just have to learn how to use it safely and properly. This is something that is so embedded in us that we all understand it. Fear and awe of blood goes way back to our earliest human ancestors.
The sight of that bright red fluid—whether it was coming from an enemy or friend, your prey or yourself—got immediate attention. Hemophobia is the fear of blood. If you lost too much blood, you would grow weak and die. If your blood is tainted, you will wither. Blood is associated with pain: you see it when you stumble and fall, have an accident, or fight.
Blood connects you to things, or others. Blood is life. It courses through your body delivering oxygen and nutrients to every part of you. Blood is energy—when you push yourself, your heart pounds and your pulse races as your blood flows even faster. Whatever little microscopic bits are floating around in there contain the very essence for all that you are. A scientists can illegally clone you if they had just a drop of your blood. Your blood contains your DNA—a blueprint not just for you, but your complete ancestral line.
Something that contains this much power is naturally powerful in magic. Blood magic is not magic that involves killing people or animals in ritual sacrifice.
This would be all kinds of wrong, not to mention illegal, and is not at all what I mean when I talk about blood magic. Blood magic is the use of a few drops of blood during a spell or ritual—usually your own blood, but if you are casting for someone else you could use theirs with caution and permission, of course.
Those few drops can add power to a magical working in any number of ways. This is simply not true.The Ritual of Binding is a ritual added by Blood Magic.

Ritual of Binding
This site is a part of Fandom, Inc. Support Contact PRO.Unity rituals are a great way to add an extra layer of meaning to your wedding ceremony before exchanging rings and vows. From lighting candles to layering colors of sand, there's a wedding ceremony ritual to fit every couple's style. One of the most popular options is the handfasting ceremony, but what is it exactly?
Here's an explanation from our experts. The handfasting ceremony has its roots in ancient Celtic tradition, symbolizing the binding together of two people and is the origin of the phrase "tying the knot". While it is most often included in Wiccan or Pagan ceremonies, it has become more mainstream and pops up in both religious and secular vows and readings.
During the ceremony, the officiant begins by explaining the ritual and what it means to the couple. This statement often includes the notion of the couple binding their lives together and the union of their hopes and desires.
The officiant then invites the couple to join hands, which symbolizes their free will to enter into the marriage. You could also opt to stand next to one another, joining one of your right hands with the other's left, and have your hands bound that way, around your wrists. From here, the officiant reads a series of vows as cords are wrapped around the couple's hands. You could opt to use a separate cord for each vow, or twist or braid together a few cords and wrap them as one around your hands.
Then, your officiant may make an additional statement about the completion of the binding and the commitment it symbolizes. After your hands are bound, you can proceed to exchange additional vows, or use your handfasting as the vows you'll exchange and move directly to the ring exchange. Jaimie Mackey.
