Do you know of any rituals/spells/etc to connect someone (or even an object) to the ocean?
Dunk it in sea water? Lol.
Sorry I’m an ass sometimes.
You could honestly do it with an [energy tether], but focus on the connection aspect instead of sharing energy.
… Okay, fine.
Connect Yourself to the Sea
(A Knot Magic Spell)
Get a bowl, and some shells if you have them; if not, crystals that remind you of the sea work. A jar of sand could prove useful too, you know. Add some sea water to the bowl - if you have it, or a mixture of tap water and sea salt suffices.
Grab a piece of string, long enough to wrap around your wrist once and still have excess hanging - blue or white is preferred, but pick whatever color makes you think of the sea. Put this in the bowl of sea water, making sure the water soaks in to the string completely. Wrap one end around your left wrist; hold the other end in your non-dominant hand, and point it towards the nearest ocean. Say / think something like:
Even though distance separates, I am connected to the sea.
Though my ears do not hear your waves, I feel them in my soul.
Though my feet do not grace your sands, they ground and comfort me wherever I go.
Though your waters do not dampen my skin and hair, I carry water within me at all times.
I am human, and water; I am one with the sea.
(Idk, I just wrote something off the top of my head, I’m not a sea witch man. Modify this however you want, or write anything to suit your needs, or don’t if you can really focus on being bonded and forever linked to the ocean on your own.)
Really focus on that connection to the sea; if you need to, close your eyes and do a visualization / meditation of you being at the sea as you do this, to further enhance that. Imagine connections from the ocean into your body. Feel the ocean all around you, and inside you. Do whatever you need to, to enforce that feeling of connection within yourself.
When done, make a bracelet out of the string and wear it as long as you can. Repeat as necessary (i.e, if you need to take the bracelet off for whatever reason or it breaks).
For an object: tie the string to an object instead, preferably one that won’t be harmed by salt or water, because, you know; change the chant to suit your needs, or again opt it out if you don’t find it necessary.
