Take three cords or strings of various, pleasing pastel
colors perhaps pink, red, and green and braid them tightly together.
Firmly tie a knot near one end of the braid, thinking of
your need for happiness.
Next, tie another knot, and another, until you have tied
seven knots. Wear or carry the cord with you until you find happiness.
After that, keep the cord in a safe place, or give to one
of the elements burn and scatter the ashes in the ocean or in a stream.
