|If you're having trouble manifesting a relationship, or manifesting a positive relationship, the problem might be that you're carrying around some leftover energy from a past relationship or two. This energy can take many forms: cords of attachment to the old flame(s), outmoded patterns or limiting beliefs about yourself or romance in general, and/or lingering fears or wounds. Here's a ritual to help clear away this energy and create the space for beautiful new romantic conditions. (Before you begin, make sure you've let go of old gifts, letters, pictures, and other reminders of the old flame(s), as these will hold the old energy in place.) Smudge yourself with white sage smoke and say:
Freya, love goddess, beautiful and bold:
Please cleanse me and release me from the old.
Now light a white candle and soak in a sea salt bath into which you've strewn the petals of six white roses.
