Casting Instructions for 'Bay Leaf Banishing'

Go to a stream or river. Sit down and take a moment to focus on the issue or issues in your life. Write your wish on a bay leaf. Either wishing to be rid of a problem issue in your life or a problematic person.

Hold the leaf in your hands and focus on your wish. Focus on the problem issue or person. As you do, gently rub your fingers on the bay leaf and visualize it absorbing the issue.

When you are ready, toss the leaf into the water, symbolically and quite literally releasing your wish into the universe, and as you watch it slowly drift away, focus on the problem being carried away with it. Say the following:

"I release my problems.

They will plague me no more.

No longer will they have a place in my life.

Let them be washed away, like my wish,

As it is carried away upon the bay."
