SPELL FOR COMPENSATION, NEGOTIATION, UNDERSTANDING
This is best during a new moon: if you wish to involve candles in the ceremony, the best
numbers are 2 and 9. Saw open a whole coconut, making sure that it remains in two complete
halves. Clean out the meat and save it for eating. Next, make holes in both sides of the shell
with a small nail. If desired, pattern the holes symbolically or use a specific number to enhance
meaning. Set the halves aside to dry. Meanwhile, find a disposable representation of your
frustration. Also gather a piece of white paper or cloth, some dried mint, white ribbon and glue.
Sit before your image of frustration and pour all your feelings into it. It may help to visualize or
re-enact the situation that induced those feelings. Cry or shout until a sense of quiet emptiness
settles over you.
Then, wrap the emblem up in white, saying,
"I cover you with peace, harmony, and understanding.
I accept peace to my own heart and extend it to ____.
Where frustration was born, let love replace it."
Now, inside one half of the coconut shell, lay the cloth and emblem, completely surrounding
them with mint (to encircle it with calm energy). Put on the top of the shell and glue the two
halves together. Finally, use the white ribbon of truce as adornment.
Hang the coconut somewhere so the winds can release their serene energy into your space.
If the coconut ever "goes bad," bury it with your negativity.
