Each one, separately, must buy a moonstone to give to their partner, but the couple should not accompany him, he has to choose the only one, the one that says: This is for my novi @.

Before dowering it, the same night, the lovers take the stone in their projective hand and carry it with loving vibrations, with what they expect from their partner, they idealize it, we do not have to think about the failures of this, in any case we must think that there are no longer those failures that make us argue.

  • Several white candles.

You do not have to diet, just eat light foods and schedule 5 meals a day, eliminating excess fat, red meat, and sweets, eating mostly fresh fruits and vegetables, and always carry with you the moonstone loaded with the purpose to help you lose weight.

Three nights after the full moon, put yourself totally naked in front of the mirror illuminated only by the light of white candles (they can even be tea candles). Study your body thoroughly, using another mirror if necessary. For this ritual to be successful, you have to examine yourself well and concentrate on yourself, assuming your failures, deficiencies and allowing yourself to change. You have to have will in it. You have to be brutal, even bad with yourself. Observe those areas that you want to reduce and visualize yourself as a new person, thinner and controlling 100% your food, even attending the gym.

Now take the moonstone in your projective hand as you continue with this visualization and send all that energy to the stone. When you have done this, rub the stone against those parts of your body with which you are not comfortable, where you want to eliminate excess fat, visualizing how, as you pass the stone, disappear.

After this pass it through your head to help you control the impulses of coemr foods that get fat. Finally take the stone with you always and, when you feel tempted to eat foods that make you fat or unhealthy, hold it in the projective hand until that temptation disappears.
