Spell for Strengthening Your Self-Worth
1 ballpoint pen
4 yellow candles
On a Thursday, Friday, or Sunday night on the full moon
This spell energizes the solar plexus chakra. With the ballpoint pen, draw a circle on each candle and make a dot in the center of the circle. This is the astrological glyph for the sun. Yellow, the sun's color, is also the color associated with the solar plexus chakra, the energy center that's linked with self-worth. Rub almond oil on the candles to dress them. Dab a little almond oil on your solar plexus, too, to energize it.
Place the four candles at the four cardinal directions and stand inside the circle defined by the candles. Starting at the east, move clockwise as you light the candles. When you have finished, spend a few minutes drawing the fire energy from the candles into yourself. Inhale the scent of almond oil and imagine a golden-yellow ball of light glowing in your solar plexus. Let this light expand until it fills you with warmth and confidence.
Pinch your right nostril shut, inhale through the left, and hold to the count of ten. Exhale through the right nostril. Repeat five times, then switch sides. As you do this alternate nostril breathing, imagine your solar plexus chakra being imbued with power.
Spend as much time as you like in the circle of light. When you're ready, extinguish the candles in reverse order from the direction you lit them and leave the circle.
