A Daisy Spell for Overcoming Indecision

Know the game where you pick a daisy and then say "He loves me" then "He loves me not" alternately as you pluck off one petal at a time? The idea is that the final petal will give you the true answer to your question about love.

Well here is a little spell that adapts the daisy game to help you make up your mind when faced with all sorts of dilemmas. Perhaps you've been invited to two parties on the same night and can't decide which you'd enjoy most, perhaps you've had two job offers that both seem equally attractive, or maybe you just can't decide what to do over the long Bank Holiday weekend.

For the spell, I've combined the daisy game with words adapted from another little rhyme - the old music hall song that goes:
Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do,
I'm half crazy all for the love of you.
It won't be a stylish marriage -
I can't afford a carriage,
But you'd look sweet on the seat
Of a bicycle built for two.
Here's what you do for the Daisy Spell for Overcoming Indecision.

First, pick a daisy. Then think about the matter you are in a dilemma about and say:
"Daisy, daisy, give me your answer, do
I'm half crazy not knowing what to choose"
Then, pulling one petal off at a time, asking "Should I do this?" as you pluck one petal, then "Should I do that?" as you pluck the next. Do this slowly and alternately visualise each of your two options as clearly as you can.

When you get to the last petal, you should have the answer to your question.

In the traditional game, whatever the last petal represents is the correct answer but, for this spell, you will  know the answer more correctly by how you feel about it. The daisy is simply helping you tap into your own intuition. It is quite possible that you will just know that the answer the daisy gave you is the right one - but if you have a very strong feeling that the daisy's answer is not right for you at this time, then trust that your intuition is giving you good advice.
