If it takes you a month to stress about that, perhaps you have ZERO power to distance yourself from people. I'd think that is the quite natural thing for you americans, "loving" each other with distance.
A meditation tool upon the Magicians altar is the athame. One should meditate on the dagger. From a a place of the unconscious mind. The will and intellect. You must become the dagger. A symbol of power and fear. In ritual the tool is used to banish negativity in order to create a harmonious environment. When you meditate as the athame. Attempt to cut through all illusion upon the desired area of resolve. And to identify any uncertainty or weakness. About the problem in question. Whether that be a person including yourself. Or even the intentions of others.
I understand your situation. You have a relationship to somebody and want it to cool down without breaking up, right? There are some spirits in the grimoires with useful powers. But I don't know any spells. I prefer to work with spirits.
I don't intend for this to sound mean.<br>But I feel like you're asking for magic to get a plate of spaghetti into your mouth, when there's probably a fork sitting on the table.
Perhaps the real question is, why do you fear doing what you want to do, such that you hope it would just happen without your doing? I get the not wanting to create bad blood, but really this is kinda basic life skills stuff.
