Fill the cup or if you have one, your ritual chalice, with water. Using your athame, stir in three mounds of salt and stircounter clockwise. While doing so, say:

"Salt and water,
Inner and outer,
Soul and body,
Be cleansed!
Cast out all that is harmful!
Take in all that is good and healing!
By the power of the Mother of all life,
And her lover the Horned God,
So must it be!"

Hold the chalice close to your heart and feed power into the water. When you can feel it glow, it is ready. If you are working with a group, pass it around and have everybody feed energy into the chalice.
