|Does something from the past haunt you? Use the waning moon to help banish memories.
Gather items that evoke memories. Lay a square of black cotton, large enough to wrap up all your memory objects, flat on your altar.
Meditate on the past. Feel it as a weight inside you. Imagine it growing lighter and lighter, floating up like a bubble. Let it rise and disappear.
One by one, hold each item. Say:
"I am ready to let you go. I can forget you now."
Place the item on the cloth.
Pull the corners of the cloth together to form a bag. Tie it with a silver cord. Leave a long end to carry the bag.
Find a bridge, preferably over running water. Hold the bag by the cord. Say:
"I let you go. I forget you."
Cut the cord and let the bag fall into the water. Don't look back.
