Ritual for a clear head
A ritual for mental clarity and peace – Take a coconut, hold it in your hand, and break it with a hammer (do not throw to the ground or beat it with anything other than iron). Pour the coconut water that comes out of it into a bowl, add 1/2 cup of soya or rice milk, and add 8 small pieces of 100% coco or shea butter, and 1 cup of distilled water. Hold the entire mixture, in the bowl, up to your head, pray, and affirm your desires and expectations. Proceed to pour this mixture onto your head allowing it to flow onto the ground or earth (this ritual is obviously done outside the house). When you have concluded, wrap or tie your head in a piece of white clothe and leave this ritual on for at least 2 hours while you relax. After 2 hours, you can wash your hair with light soap and water. During and after this ritual, refrain from watching TV, listening to the radio, reading, or talking too much with other people, since this is a ritual to allow you to listen to God's inner voice. It is a time for calm, peace, and self-love.
