Finding Equilibrium
Mental and Emotional Self-Care

If you feel buffeted by change or uncertainty, a spell to reinforce your equilibrium can help. This is good for emotional equilibrium as well as general balance in your life.

The blue lace agate in this spell carries energies associated with calm, balance, and composure, while the rhodochrosite represents comfort, balance, and stability.

Spell for Equilibrium

The quickest and easiest way to access a method of rebalancing is to center, ground, and either shunt off excess energy to the earth or draw what you need up to replace missing energy in your own system. This spell is a different approach.

What You Need:

♦ Pale blue or pale lavender candle and candleholder

♦ Matches or lighter

♦ Blue lace agate stone

♦ Rhodochrosite stone

What to Do:

1. Cleanse the stones according to your preferred method (see Chapter 1).

2. Center and ground.

3. Light the candle.

4. Hold one stone in each hand. Close your eyes and feel the weight in your palms. Slowly start to gently rock back and forth, lifting one hand while lowering the other. Keep the movement very slight at first. While you rock, say:

Flow, ebb,

Ebb, flow.

Bring me balance,

Stability show.

5. As you chant, increase your movement, bringing your body into play as well. Keep chanting until you feel your energy peak.

6. Focus on the stones again and slow your movement incrementally until you are standing still with your eyes closed, a stone in each cupped hand. Feel the sense of floating and lightness you now have. Murmur the chant one final time, then open your eyes.

7. Allow the candle to burn out. Keep the stones and reuse them whenever you need to.
