MAGICKAL CLEANSING AND LIFTING A 'CURSE'
If you have been suffering from a series of mishaps or bad luck,
There are things you can do to turn it around. The first thing I advise is
To clean the cobwebs out - literally! Clean up your room, your office
Space, your whole house if you can. Do as much of the following as you
Can, Get rid of clutter. It develops an atmosphere of stagnation and
prevents Movement, both literally and symbolically.
Visualize yourself Turning out all the unwanted energies from
Your life, ridding yourself of negativity and doubt and fear. Open up all
Your windows (and doors, if possible). It's best to do this on a sunny day
Naturally. Throw them wide open to receive the cleansing and blessings of

this water For purification, protection and love.'
Suggestions: water in which some chopped-up lemons have been
Steeped overnight, or rosemary infusion; either one smells good as well
As adding a nice protective touch.

Blend, or one of the following alone: cedar, frankincense, copal, gum
Arabic. If you can't stand the smell of incense, use an essential oil
burner, Carried on a tray or in a baking dish to guard your hands.
Use purifying and protective oils; I like a few drops each of
Sandalwood, frankincense and myrrh, and a drop of lemon.
Walk through the entire area, holding the incense/burner up so
That its fragrance penetrates every corner. I sometimes like to sprinkle
Blessed salt water about, and to set white candles burning merrily in every
Room (do this *after* closing the doors and windows!).
You can add a chant while sprinkling/fumigating/ lighting; I
Like 'Banished be, negativity!' ; it's short but to the point. Finally, when
The area smells all clean and holy, looks clean and is blazing with light,
sit Down and enjoy. Eat something, preferably something bready; you'll need it
After all that work, and it'll help ground you in your newly cleansed
Once all this is over and you've recovered from the work, cast a few
