I’m not great at this. I like to not look at what scares me. I tuck it away. When I need help, sometimes spellwork gets me to the place I need to be in order to move forward.
- Compact mirror or small mirror
- small piece of paper
- a rock – can be a normal rock or a fancy rock like obsidian or anything that might have meaning for you
What you can do:
Write what you are afraid of on the paper. No embellishment. Just whatever it is. Place it face down on the mirror or the compact. I like the symbolism of having a compact and if it’s a really big fear, you put it face down on the magnify side. Place the rock over the paper, holding it in place.
Come to a comfortable position, seated or lying down, and hold these items in your hands or place them in front of you with your hands on top of them. Close your eyes and chant:
Face this fear and show to me the ways in which I can be free
Chant until it feels good and done. Meditate on the fear. You can write if you feel so inclined in the moment, dance, stomp, pound your hands on the floor, anything that gets you energetically connected to your thoughts about the fear. When you feel like you are in a better place mentally about what you wrote on the original piece of paper under the rock, you can: Burn the paper Rip up the paper Bury the paper offer the paper to your patrons/guides or simply leave it on the mirror on your altar/sacred space and revisit if needed. Hope it might help both of us.
