This is a post from long ago by Mambo Sam, about ways folks who are feeling down can help themselves. It is still very good advice today.
First: Definitely the Milk of Damballah(tm) white bath. There is
nothing like it for removing the negativity, pain, and hurt. I am
sure you have already read testaments to that fact right here on this
Second: Depending on how you feel after that, you may want to
consider the triple white female candle magick work on yourself!
Yep, you can do the Mind, Body, Spirit work on yourself. The process
is the same, asking for negative things to be removed (depression,
hurt, anger, etc.) and be replaced with positive things (happiness,
joy, self confidence, etc.).
Third: If even after that, or if you feel that the above isn't
enough, try the Hex Removal kit. Remember it works even if you don't
have a hex or curse.... it is extremely good for removing negativity,
Fourth: Affirmations. Back in the day affirmations were all the
vogue. "Every day in every way I am getting better and better" was a
really popular one. Okay, very hokey I know! But the truth is,
finding affirmations that work for you can be very cathartic and
healing. Assure yourself that you are better than this, you deserve
Fifth: ACT HAPPY. Huh? Yep. Just the very deed of acting happy
when you aren't does help. It is a physical chemical reaction. You
know - those old endorphins.
Sixth: Wait a little while to worry about attracting a new love.
Yes, you can definitely do the Attract Love to Me(tm) kit. But
approach it from a cleansing point of view, getting yourself ready to
accept love again, but don't push it.
Seventh: Pray. If you have a particular religion that perhaps you
have lapsed a bit in, revisit it. If there was ever anything about
it that was soothing or peaceful for you, try to focus on that. I
find that going into a Catholic church (I am a Catholic, albeit a
somewhat lapsed one) and just sitting, lighting a candle, and talking
to God very helpful in stressful times. Formal rituals of any church
seem somewhat constrained to me and I like to go into churches when
nothing in particular is going on.
Eighth: Do something that you have always wanted to do and never got
the chance. If it is something that costs an exhorbitant amount of
money that you don't have right now, find a reasonable substitute.
Always wanted to go to Paris? Not feasible right now? Treat
yourself to a French foreign film and a dinner at a nice French
Ninth: Get your hair done. Seriously... nothing like it! Manicure
and pedicure, too, if you can. :-)
Tenth: Remember there are people in your life who love you and care
about you - think about the nicest thing someone did for you in your
life. Wasn't that a wonderful feeling? Recapture it.
