I am new to things, and after some long thought on a personal situation in my life I choose to do a burning ritual to help release the negative feelings on the situation and try and burn the fear of a bad omen away. I preface this with I am extremely afraid of fire. I have alway been since I was a child so my anxiety was high for this. As I lit the paper on fire I may have felt the sense of panic as it began to burn and it instead of putting it in the metal pot to burn I put it in the water I had on had for safety. I did this twice before trying a third and having it not burn completely so I had to re light the paper. In the end it did bun, but I don't feel the release I wanted due to my failures. Should I hold off and try again another night and burn the papers that did not burn or would something be better to do? I am trying to not think of it is.a bad omen or sign, but just my own faults due to my fears.
