Braid Spell for Change

What would you like to change in your life? Your love interest, your affluence level, your career, or a bad habit? Buy three lengths of cord in a color that symbolizes for you the element you’d like to change. As you braid the cord, speak to it of your frustrations. Cry over it, tie knots in it, infuse it with your unhappiness. Holding this cord, say:

Unravel cursed threads,
So I can wind a better way.
Old ways are now in shreds,
A better life begins today.

Turn in a widdershins direction. After chanting, dig a hole in the earth and bury the cord.
