|What good would magic be, if it could not provide
for one of most women's basic needs, that of losing weight? In fact it
is a simple deed to perform, if a bit lengthy -- but what are a few days
of magic, when sometimes years of efforts, strenuous gymnastics, and suicidal
diets have failed!
It might even sound too good to be true -- yet
true it is. And this you have to believe, as it is the only prerequisite
for this magic to work: that unconditionally you believe in it. If you
are halfhearted about it, you might as well give up and take up weight-lifting
For this magic you need two things: jasmine essence,
and a quartz crystal. Jasmine is the flower of femininity. (I am supposing
this magic to be directed to a woman -- of course men do want to lose weight
too. If this is the case, choose an essence such as Patchouli or Vanilla).
It is the flower of senses, of pleasure, of physical attraction. The best
suited therefore to bring you back in touch with the pleasure of being
in your skin, of looking and feeling attractive, the feeling that exudes
naturally from a healthy and balanced body. In fact all the responsibility
for weight problems resides somewhere in the body's loss of its ability
to stay balanced. Deficiences on the emotional or mental plane are interfering
with the body's natural wisdom. When its balance is impaired its happiness
Through jasmine you may magically evoke that lost
sensuous joyfulness. With the crystal quartz you focus your energies on
the issue at hand, and give staying power to the healing forces.
Begin the process during the day, when the moon
is full. Cleanse and dress yourself and sit in your magic place. Place
the jasmine flowers or essence and also the quartz crystal in front of
you together with the symbols of the elements.
As you call the powers a different element will
present itself to you, according to where the imbalance is in you. That
will of course change the shape of the incantation. In this example I will
use the element air -- on the basis of this example you can work out the
So air is in this case the element which speaks,
the power which will help you with this magic. Words belong to air magic.
Now inhale the scent of the jasmine and relax deeply to ask your subconscious
to give you a word -- the key word for this magic. For a few minutes you
are sitting with your eyes closed, thinking of nothing. When you sense
your mind beginning to wander astray, touch the quartz -- its magical powers
will help immediately to focus your attention again.
Soon the key word will form itself in your conscious
mind: in this example it is "independence". It does not matter that you
understand why this particular word should be your key word. Certainly
a reason is there, your unconscious has its own deep wisdom -- but it is
not important that you should be consciously aware of its motives.
Every might, from the full moon to the black moon,
you will rub a few drops of jasmine oil on your naked body. While doing
this, let the key word "independence" stay in your mind.
As you revel in the fragrance of the jasmine,
relaxing, images will come to your mind, suggestions as to how to expand
on the independence in your life. Maybe you will have a vision on yourself
learning a foreign language. Following these suggestions is an essential
part of this magic; if you want it to work you will have to find a way.
The quartz will help you with that. If you find
yourself saying "I have too much to do, I cannot possibly fit this in,
I never was good at languages anyway." etc., touch the crystal and feel
its energy for a few seconds. it will immediately give you clarity and
firmness of purpose, and you will be able to see what you need to do, and
have the determination to do it.
Every night, before going to sleep, rub the essence
on your body, and experiment with your key word. Keep the crystal with
you at all times for this period -- to touch it whenever you feel that
you need to do so.
Thanks to the magic of the flower, of the crystal,
and of the key word given to you by the power air, a deep change will start
in this period. A change which will enable you to regain your natural balance,
and the grace and beauty that go with it.
