This is a gift of good mental health, or perhaps a gift of the stars. People who don’t get enthusiastic miss a lot. This feeling makes you glow, it makes your blood run faster, it is the fuel that carries you to your goals. Motivation is another form of this feeling. If you want to become more enthusiastic about your life, do this ritual every morning just after you get up and every evening just before you fall asleep.
Get a piece of green stone. It can be jasper, malachite, emerald, or jade. Rub it with your hands over the smoke from a little incense (your favorite) and say three times:
Green stone, green star, We grow, we reach, We mind, we shine!
Carry the green stone on your body at all times in a little pouch. Even sleep with it under your pillow!
General Meaning: Enormous creative energy is unleashed by enthusiasm. This energy is like powerful music that inspires people, loosening old constraints and generating new opportunities. Indeed, the power of enthusiasm is best symbolized by music and dance, for it is guided more by the heart than the head. Thus, great good fortune can follow someone who is able to guide this positive force toward victory and a joyous celebration.
Enthusiasm within a group generates a special kind of electricity. When a crowd is ‘charged’, the singer scales new heights, and life becomes its own reward. For who is not in awe of thunder? And who would fail to fill his or her lungs in the aftermath of a cleansing rain?
Arouse the passionate support of others, while adjusting your ideas and plans to suit their needs. In this way you can fill your sails with the mighty winds of shared enthusiasm.
To arouse others, re-double your own dedication and dare to create an environment that is free of tension. Take joy in your projects. Harness the power of song and dance.
