A chalice is just a fancy word for a cup, it generally refers to a ceremonial goblet used in rituals and spells. The chalice is often used as a symbol of the feminine and is associated with the goddess, the earth, and the element of water. Historically, it has been used in rituals and ceremonies to represent the unity and continuity of life and to symbolize the connection between the human and divine realms.
Cleansing the chalice before using it in rituals can help ensure it’s free of any negative energy and ready to be used for your intention. First, clean your chalice with water, then find a comfortable spot, quiet the mind and relax your breath. Hold the chalice in your hand and start to visualize a ball of glowing light flowing down and entering through your crown chakra, then visually guide that light energy down through your arms and hands and into your Chalice. See this universal light covering it and soaking it with this radiance. This clears away the old vibes and energy surrounding it. Then recite this incantation: I cleanse and purify this chalice, so that it may serve as a vessel of the divine. May it be blessed and filled with power.”
SUGGESTIONS: Use it as a vessel for herbs and loose incense. Place your gemstones inside the cup for storage or leave them outside to charge in the Moonlight. Use for holding your potions or sacred beverages.
