Today was a pretty busy day. I worked for a bit this morning, then headed to the gym. I came home to feed the animals and placed an online order for my groceries. After picking them up, I made dinner, did some laundry and decided it was time to wind down for the night. I started getting ready for bed and realize that I hadn’t practiced any magic today. That’s when I saw the pore-cleansing mask in my medicine cabinet.
The mask was an impulse buy after seeing an article on Buzzfeed about this mask being the most painful mask on the market. I use it once a week or so, and it does a pretty good job. Luckily, it’s only slightly painful.
I looked in the mirror and counted a few blackheads on my nose and cheeks. I carefully pointed them out and named them. “This one is anxiety over my finances,” I said pointing to a blackhead on the tip of my nose. “You, you’re my propensity towards cynicism,” I said to the one on my cheek. I continue until I run out of blackheads.
I pick up the tube of cleanser and squeeze an ample amount onto my fingers. I close my eyes and focus on my breath. On every inhalation, I draw energy up from the earth. On every exhale, I push the energy into the mask. I do this until I feel the mask vibrating with power. I rubbed the mask onto my face and went back to finishing up my nightly routine.
The mask was set by the time I finished brushing my teeth. I called my attention once again to my breathing. I silently set the intention that as I removed the mask and the blackheads that clung to it, I was removing the influence of the behaviors that the blackheads were named after. I took a final breath and pulled the mask off. I headed to bed with my face feeling clean and my spirits uplifted. The spell had been cast.
