“I invoke you Carnonos
At the border, you sit, watching and waiting
You, the mediator between the realms unseen
You, the great warden of the ways of the in-between
Great proctor of the threshold
Mighty guide of the herd”.
“I invoke you Sucellos
At the border, you stand helping and supporting
You the maintainer of that which is seen
You the great warden of the in-between
Great protector of the threshold
Mighty proctor of the herd”.
“I give you this offering and praise so that I may find my unseen way.
Carnonos I ask you for your guidance.
Sucellos I ask you for protection.
Help me walk through this threshold so that I may not get lost.
Help me to maintain my path if I get lost
For I have a way that I would like to maintain.”

Standing in the Medios (the middle) facing east say.
I take this time as the light of Samos begins to leave us and we see the return of the darkness of Giamos to reap my manifestations. I cautiously cut this harvest from the ground from which it came. (take a knife and a basket and lay them on your altar to symbolize your plenty) May the abundance of Rosmerta aid and be fruitful.
Stand facing East with your hands cupped, resting at your mid-region, and slowly raise them towards the Dubulucrâ. As you do this, slowly turn your hands so your palms face outwards and your hands reach forward and raised above you.
Focus on your breathing and do this as many times as you need.
Visualize that your intentions are inside your cupped hands. As you raise your hands, you are filling the Dubulucrâ with your intentions filling it with all of you.
Saying ” I carefully harvest these seeds that have grown into mighty plants that have given its fruits to me. (Speak out loud what each seed is) this night in your empty vessel may I nurture them within your coming light”.
Focus on different things for the various transition points making sure they all aid in the greater cycle.
