Depression is never a good thing. Amaterasu retreated into a cave in despair and perhaps you have, too. Time for a change. You will need a dark colored candle, a white candle, and a lighter. Draw the drapes in your room. Stand before your altar and light the dark candle. Watch the flame and imagine it filled with all your suffering, doubts, and frustration. Breathe in deep. Say, "I extinguish this darkness from my life." Blow out the candle. As the smoke dissipates, imagine the dark things in your life fading away as well. Take a deep breath. Light the white candle. Say, "I welcome the light back into my life." Take the candle and, in a clockwise direction, open your curtains and windows. Move from room to room, expelling the darkness and letting the Sun shine in. When you have finished, extinguish the candle, but leave it on your altar for twenty-four hours. Break the dark candle into pieces and bury it.
