|Today is Sir Elton John's birthday, and like him, you can break bad habits and rise to personal success. You'll need a white candle and a match, pen and paper, and a white candle. It's best to do this outside, but inside will also work.
Light the candle. Using the pen and paper, write down the habit you want to break. Fold the paper four times. With each fold, repeat a line of this verse:
By fold of four, open the door.
By fold of three, so mote it be.
By fold of two, the spell is true.
By fold of one, this vice is gone.
Put the paper on a heatproof surface. Set it on fire and let it burn away, ashes to the wind. (If you do this inside, save the ashes and take them outside to the wind when you can.) Pinch out the candle and trust the process.
