(This ritual was originally published in Llewellyn’s 2011 Spell-A-Day Almanac and on Llewellyn’s Spell-A-Day blog. It’s best to do it when the moon is waning and in the sign of Libra – like maybe tomorrow.)
Jealousy lies heavy on your heart, wastes energy, and restricts your natural flow of blessings and joy. This journaling ritual will help you release jealousy and be free. Write the heading: “Jealousies.” Then make a list of every person and/or situation that arouses the negative feeling of jealousy in you. Now light a white candle and relax. Look at the first item on your list. Close your eyes and visualize this person and/or situation. Remind yourself that this is an infinite universe: what one person has can never diminish you in any way. Realize that the more you release jealousy and celebrate the good fortunes of others, the more open you’ll be to receiving your own blessings. As much as you can, wish this person well and surround the situation with love. Continue with each item. Afterward, (safely) burn the list and release the ashes in a moving body of water (or flush them down the toilet in a pinch).
