So a bit of a story comes along before I share the spell itself.
In March of 2016, I was preparing my senior thesis. As a theatre major, you can choose between a variety of ways to do your thesis as long as it's involved with a production; I chose to direct.
My cast for The Intruder by Maurice Maeterlinck was combining with another cast for an evening of drama. My partner was another student doing his thesis for Flowers for Algernon.
Well, the day we combined shows, to allow for tech crew to see the run time and everything that needed to be moved and the casts to see each show, my cast completely forgot 3/4 of their lines.
Now, I was about three or four months pregnant at the time. It was fairly calm but freaking out over my thesis plus my cast messing up this bad a week before show opened PLUS being a little hormonal, I was pissed.
I'm proud to say I stayed quiet and calm during my talk afterwards to my cast. I got quite a few comments saying they were more scared of that (some had seen me vocally mad before, just not quiet mad). When my husband picked me up from rehearsal that night, however, I was still raging.
I felt like I was going to hurl. I was in tears. I was so scared of failing. But I knew I needed my sleep, for my daughter's sake.
So, to put my mind at rest until the morning, I did a spell on the fly. And it worked wonders.
Here's what you'll need:
Light your candles, they can be on your altar or a table. Wherever you're most comfortable, really.
Write everything that's been stressing you out down. This can be in all areas of your life, not just the current situation.
Once you're done, fold the paper into a neat square and light your main, calming candle. Speak to yourself, or your deity, that tonight all your stress and worries will disappear as you sleep. Draw a picture o the paper to help visualize this for you (ex: a dream cloud).
Light the paper with the calming candle and place it in the fire proof dish. Keep lighting it until the paper is completely burned away. Then drown the ashed in the water.
Speak to yourself that the stress is officially gone and blow/snuff out your candles. Then clean up.
Very easy and really worked out for me. The next day, my cast decided to run lines and there wasn't one fuck up for the rest of the rehearsals and the run. BOOM.
The idea behind this spell, now that I look back and examine it, is letting go.
I did my part; I built up my actors and ran rehearsals to the point where the only thing left was them doing their lines. Everything else I was stressing about, like money and food and family, resolved themselves as well.
By burning the paper, you're partly expressing your frustration and partly releasing all that pent up energy you have. Drowning the ashes in water, the emotional element, allows yourself to heal and recuperate. To rest.
