* White candle
* Kunzite or blue agate
* Black marker with wide felt tip
* Lemon Balm
* Lemon oil (the kind used for furniture polish is fine)
* Cloth pouch
Begin by completely coloring the candle black with the marker to symbolize the depression that presently encases you. Light the candle and say:
"Flame cut through depression deep,
Melt it down and make it weep.
Grant me power to re-emerge,
From its grip, I leap and surge."
Allow the candle to burn until white wax appears at the flame. Rub a bit of lemon oil into the flame and say:
"Kunzite/agate, stone of mellow hue,
Dissolve this depression, I beg of you.
Take its power and transform its strength
Into positive energy I can use at length."
Rub the stone against your temples and your heart, then place it in front of the candle and sprinkle it with lemon balm. Let the candle burn completely. Place the stone and herb in the cloth pouch and carry it with you. When your spirits need a lift, re-anoint the stone and repeat chant.
