Release Negative Energy
Candle: Black for repelling negativity (Can substitute with white for purification)
Oil: Lavender, Dragon’s Blood, Mint, Sandalwood, or Rosemary. (Optional)
Sit on the ground comfortably with the candle in front of you. Spend a few minutes staring into the candle flame, concentrating on the issue or problem causing the buildup of negativity in you. Really try to get to the root of what’s bothering you, keeping your gaze trained on the flame.
Once you’ve figured out the source of the negative energy, place a drop of oil on your finger tip and draw the rune Sowilo on your chest (if you don’t have oil or have sensitive skin, simply draw the symbol on your chest without oil). As you repeat the following lines, visualize a white light bathing you from above, cleansing the anger and negativity from your body:
Sun and fire cleanse my energy,
Banish all negativity.
All anger, depression, and anxiety be gone,
Only positive energies welcome from here on.
Free me from darkness, return me to light,
May my spirit be pure, serene, and bright.
If you can, set the candle in a safe area and let it burn out on its own. If that’s not possible, snuff it out and bury the remains in the Earth.
