This time of year – even the happiest and joyful of personalities can feel the weight of the world on their shoulders. The holiday season creates much chaos and depression.
Depression Relief Spell
White candle – taper or votive (not glass encased)
Blue Agate stone
Black Marker – wide tip
Lemon Balm – loose herb
Cut & Clear Oil
Small cloth pouch
Begin by completely coloring the white candle black with your marker. This symbolizes the depression that is presently encasing you.
Light the candle and say the following:
‘Flame cut through depression deep,
Melt it down and make it weep.
Grant me power to re-emerge,
From it’s grip, I leap and surge!’
Watch the candle burn until the white wax appears at the flame. Extinguish the candle if you need, or if you are able, add a drop of Cut and Clear oil near the flame. (Relight the candle if you extinguished it) Hold the Blue Agate stone in your hands and say:
‘Agate, stone of mellow hue, Dissolve this depression, I beg of you. Take its power and transform it’s strength, Into positive energy I can use at length.’
Lightly rub the stone against your temples, your third eye and then your heart. Place it in front of the candle and sprinkle lemon balm around it.
Let the candle burn completely.
When the candle is spent, place the stone, herbs and a piece of wax in a cloth pouch and carry it with you.
When your spirits need a lift, re-anoint the stone with Cut and Clear Oil and repeat it’s empowerment chant.
Side note: Agate, especially blue, helps one reach high spiritual places through peace, as well as patience and understanding. It’s associated with hope, cleansing, harmony, protection, positive thinking, joy, truth and promptness.
