We all have fears- maybe its being alone, maybe it’s our failing health, or our growing debt. This spell helps us overcome the fears and anxieties that will further add fuel to the fire. This will help us find peace and refuge and relax, even if it’s just for a moment.

Once your potion is made you can either strain out the resin or leave it inside- the choice is yours. Gather your required ingredients, and prepare yourself as you normally would for magick.
Hold the candle in your hand and focus your intention on burning away and removing obstacles that keep you from obtaining your goals, these can be fears as well!!! Inscribe some of the things that need to be overcome on the candle; these could be “over spending, social anxiety, overeating, etc” Whatever the problem is inscribe it lightly on the candles surface.
Written word inscribed in wax
has dominated me to the max
Take your potion and anoint it on the candle
This potion shall fix this sure and true
Helping me to start anew.
Take the matches and light the candle. Write on the piece of paper your problems and burdens. Really focus your energy as you write the words, see these problems as a black tar, see it going through the pen/pencil and on the page, leaving your body. When you are ready fold the paper 2x AWAY from you, immediately thrust it into the flames catching it a-fire. Intone these or similar words:
My problems and obstacles go up in flame
I take responsibility I don’t pass the blame
The time has come for me to take control of my life
To end my hardships and remove my strife.
I will into being my life a new
Only peace and harmony will ensue.
By the power of three times three
As I will it so mote it be!
The paper should burn all the way, when the candle has burned out remove all remains of this spell from your property a public trash can works wonders, especially at a place you do not visit often. Move forward with your life knowing that you have started afresh and are no longer tied down to fears and obstacles that have bound you before!
