Spell A Day
The Spill-it Spell for Shy People
Spell Date: Wednesday, October 3, 2001
If you’ve ever found yourself tongue-tied in front of a stranger, or shy and embarrassed in a group, try the following spell. First, carry a tiger’s-eye gemstone—a stone of strength and confidence—in your pocket and hold it. Then, tighten and release your abdominal muscles several times, slowly, to help reduce stage fright. As you breathe, focus on
relaxing through your slow exhalations. Smile at someone in the group you like, or think you could like, and see if you don’t get a smile back. Finally, admit how you feel by saying: “For some reason I always feel nervous in front of a group I don’t know well. Have you ever felt that way?” If all else fails, talk about pets. Most people have or have had a pet and love animals. Get them started on Fluffy or Rex and the conversation’s in the bag.
