To be done after an argument has occurred between you and a loved one.
Draw two figures on separate sheets of paper-one representing you and the other representing
the other person. Personalize the figures as needed (e.g.. Draw yellow on the head for blond
hair, draw glasses , etc.) Place an unbroken bay leaf on one figure and lay the other figure
face-down on top, creating a sandwich type thing. Say:
"Let the bay leaf take the energy and anger that is between us."
Separate the figures. Pick up the bay leaf and crumple it in the palm of your hand.
While doing so, say:
" As this leaf is broken and blown away,
Let the anger contained within also break and blow away."
Place the figures again on top of each other and say,
"Now there is no anger between us."
Blow the leaf to the wind. Wrap the figures up with a pink ribbon and put in safe place.
