Banish the Blues
You’ve been singing the blues lately, but this ritual helps you change your tune. Drumming stimulates acupressure and reflexology points on your hands to produce beneficial effects. Because the beats harmonize with the beating of your own heart, drumming makes you feel joyful and alive.
An incense burner
Matches or a lighter
A hand drum (for instance, a djembe, dumbek, or conga)
Brightly colored ribbons
The Sun card from a tarot deck
Best time to perform the spell: Any time
Collect the ingredients needed for this spell. Cast a circle around the area where you will do your spell. Fit the incense in its holder and light it. Tie the ribbons on the drum, as many as you like, in whatever colors please you. Then attach the Sun card to the drum, with the image facing out (you may be able to simply slip it under the drum strings).
Begin playing the drum with both hands. Don’t worry about how you sound, just play. Feel the drum’s vibrations breaking up the dense, depressing energy around you. Try a variety of beats, keeping your mind focused on your drumming. If you wish, put on a CD of lively African music and play along with it.
Continue playing as long as you like. When you feel more lighthearted, open the circle. Repeat whenever you start feeling blue to quickly shift your emotions to a higher vibration.
