Your chalice filled with water

            Ground and center. Contemplate that which troubles you and imagine that it takes the form of a black smoke, which you now direct into the water with each exhale. Continue this until you feel the water has become dark and “poisoned”. Enchant the water, saying:

“Poison I have held within
Fear or anger, shame or sin
Transform by breath of witches’ flame
My power shines.
I here reclaim.”

Now, take a cleansing breath and imagine breathing white fire directly into the water as you intone the sound of a low, vibrant hum. With each exhale, the darkness in the cup begins to transform in your mind’s eye, becoming a brilliant crystalline luminescence. When you feel this is at its “peak” reverently drink the water down, feeling this light of transformation working its magic within you. Go about your day remembering this light within.
