To lift Depression


You need: A candle in your favorite color.
5 red rose petals.
A picture of you as a child looking happy.

Sit cross-legged on the floor and make sure you are comfortable light the candle and spread the rose petals out around it.

Put your picture in front of you and look deep into the flame of the candle.
Relax for a few seconds and breathe deeply forgetting everything that is depressing you.

Push all your unhappiness into the rose petal closest to you.

Talk the rose petal and crush it in your hand and throw it away.

Breathe deeply again and look into the picture of you as a happy child and chant

"By the power within me, let happiness be.
Dig up from the corners of my mind, the happiness and carefree of a child.
Push away heavy thoughts, let happiness flow free.
So Mote It Be."

Chant this about 3 times, more if you like but no less.
Close your eyes imagine being young and carefree.
Then blow out the candle stand up and spin around anti clockwise in a circle 3 times.
Get two rose petals close your eyes and rub them along your eyelids gently.
Then go outside and bury the rose petals under a special tree.


You need Jasmine oil Freshly picked flower (any kind will do)
Paper + Pen Candle Container
Write down on a piece of paper who or what makes you sad or angry and burn the paper saying:

"I burn this paper to bring me happiness."

Then drip the jasmine oil on the flowers and burn the flowers saying:

"I burn these flowers to bring me comfort."

Pour the ashes into the container while saying:

"Akasha (the goddess), bring me happiness and bring me comfort."

Repeat it three times then put the container somewhere cool.


You will need:
white candle, black marker with wide felt tip, kunzite or blue agate, lemon balm,
lemon oil, and cloth pouch

Begin by completely coloring the candle black with the marker to symbolize the
depression that presently encases you.

Light the candle & say:

"Flame cut through depression, deep. Melt it down & make it weep.
Grant me power to re-emerge, From its grip, I leap & surge."

Watch the candle burn until white wax appears at the flame.

Rub a bit of lemon oil into the stone & say:

"Kunzite/agate, stone of mellow hue,
Dissolve the depression, I beg of you.
Take its power & transform its strength.
Into positive energy I can use at length."

Lightly rub the stone against your temples & your heart, then place it in front of the candle & sprinkle it with lemon balm. Let the candle burn completely.
Place the stone & herb in the cloth pouch & carry it with you.

When your spirits need a lift, re-anoint the stone & repeat its empowerment chant.
Also suggest that you meditate. It helps make you calmer and be able to see things in a clear light.
