Casting Instructions for 'Achieving Equilibrium'
Find a quiet place where you won't be disturbed. If you are inside, ensure silence, and if you're outside, let the noise fade into the background. Start your meditation by consciously thinking of what your purpose is. Think about how you wish to achieve equilibrium. Let it fade back into the corner of your mind, but still be aware that it's there. Focus on your breathing, keeping it slow but steady. As you inhale you inhale the world around you, and as you exhale, you exhale all of your internal being. As you exhale, feel the weight leave your shoulders and flow off of you like a waterfall as your struggles and stresses become absorbed by the world.
Do this for sometime. When you are feeling calm, visualize the candles in front of you and what they look like. Slowly open your eyes and light the candles. If you have a necklace it will work better than a piece of string, but create a circle with the string/necklace/chord or whatever you have at your disposal. Create a circle with it, or a loop with both ends of the string touching. The circle you just created must touch both candles as well as yourself. By doing this, you have just created a physical and spiritual bond with the string/necklace, the candles, and the power of the circle.
Close your eyes once more and think of the candles burning. The flames flickering. Think of positive things and direct them towards your white candle. Positive things like childhood memories, moments that make you laugh, and things that make you smile. Visualize these things being implanted and imbedded within that candle. Now when you think of that candle, you can feel that it is full of your good.
Shift your focus to the black candle, and fill it with negative the same way you filled your white candle with good. Think of negative things that have happened to you or you're stressing about. Because the two candles are connected by the string, they are physically touching in a roudabout way. Visualize a flow between the two candles. They feed one another. The bad flows into the good and mixes with it creating a balance, just as the good flows into the bad and creates another balance. These two candles have come to symbolize and represent balance between your good and bad. The more you focus on this bond and symbolism the stronger it gets and soon the candles start to become balance personified.
Because you are touching the string, slowly, not quickly, but slowly let the energy start flowing towards you. Think of the white candle, and how it has it's own power but how it's also amplifed because it's connected to the black candle. Think about the black candle and it's own power plus how it is amplified because of the white candle. As you slowly absorb the energy of them, you're absorbing them both at the same time, but they are singular together in the same sense.
As the balance you seek begins to fill you, you feel it start in your heart. Your heart beats differently and the release you feel now is more euphoric and meaningfull. It makes it's way into your thoughts and your very being. Accept it graciously and as you do this, know that because this was your intention it will be your reality.
