Let's put the madness of politics aside and do a little calming spell.
Goddess knows I certainly need one.
Light blue is the candle color for quiet and tranquility. White is always a good color and the alternate color for anything. If you don't have either, pick a color that speaks to you of meditation, quiet and calm.
Take the candle in your hands, sit quietly and meditate for a few minutes on your intention.
Draw energy from the earth. Picture the energy flowing from the deep dark earth, to the surface, thru the structures of the building you are in, up thru your feet and into your center.
Feel the power and the energy, focus on it, clear your mind of other thoughts as well as you can. Just let random thoughts float past, ignore them, don't try to make them go away. Focus on the energy you are gathering within you.
Focus on calmness and tranquility. Push this energy into the candle. Visualize the energy you have gathered being transferred and stored in the candle.
Place the candle in a safe holder and light it.
Visualize the light of the candle carrying the energy out like rays of light, spreading the calmness that you gathered. Visualize that calmness spreading like the light of the candle, filling the rooms around you.
Give a quiet thanks to the Goddess for the power of light.
Ground yourself and let any excess energy flow back into the ground. Give a quiet thanks to the Earth for the power that you have just borrowed.
Stay quiet for a moment.
Now go about your business and let the candle burn and do it's work.
Don't leave it unattended, if you need to leave it snuff it out, don't blow it out.
