You will need:
1) A mirror,most any kind, other than compact
2) 2 candles, of any color---pink is a good choice, as it brings friendship and romance
3) yourself :)
In a place that is comfortable for sitting a while, and fire safe, place the mirror with a candle on each side. Light the candles...turn down, or off, any artificial light. Now, sit down in front of the mirror, gaze at your reflection. Sit comfortably, and relaxed. Notice all your good qualities...focus on them...then say aloud how wonderful this feature (eyes, for ex.) are..notice their shape, and color, speak of them aloud...do this with all your best features..smile at yourself :) Tell yourself, how wonderful you are...state all the positive aspects of your personality, (your humor, your willingness to help others, etc) name all the beautiful traits, that make you special...speak of them aloud, and with confidence...(It may not be as easy as it sounds!) Now comes the really hard part....hopefully, with practice, and by doing the above things, this will be easier to do!
~~~Say these words~~ (or whatever suits YOU!) :)
I am beautiful (or handsome) on the outside
I am wonderful within
I am special unto myself,
So let the love come in!
Negative thoughts, they vanish
I now toss them out
Negative feelings, be banished,
To let my love shine out!
Repeat this, at least 5 times per sitting. And do at least, once a day--you may reuse the candles, but PLEASE DO NOT blow them out! (It is an insult, to the air to fire elements) Use a snuffer, or..wet your fingers, and pinch them out.
As you get more used to doing this spell, you may repeat these words, or any words that YOU chose (spells are great, when made personal...maybe, in time, and with practice, you will want to change them, or maybe you'll want to do that right away..or, not at all..whatever YOU prefer) :) Also--to make an attraction charm, to wear, simply, find a chain, with a pendant that suits you, and drape over the mirror while doing your spell...or wear it, so it is in sight, as you do your spell. The charm gains strength, as you continue to work the spell.
This spell works! In time---you will see a noticable difference, in the number of people who approach you.
1. Green goddess candle
2. Red god candle
3. A new unused pink taper candle
4. pink rose buds
5. red rose buds with petals
6. ground damiana
7. rose oil
8. lavender oil
Before you begin your circle mix the red and pink rose incense and the damiana together.
To begin the spell cast your circle as you usually do. When invoking the god call in Cupid and then light the red candle. For invoking the goddess call in Venus and light the green candle. Next pick up the pink candle and the rose oil. As you anoint the candle with the rose oil speak the following words:
"With the oil of rose I do anoint this candle. Now may this candle perform magick of love and friendship for those who use it."
After you have gone all around the candle rubbing the oil into it place it in a candle holder and speak the following words:
"Venus, Goddess of Love and Beauty, Cupid God of Love, I ask you to bring to me the one true male/female I am destined to spend my life with in love."
Light the candle and say:
"As the flame is lit, so may it burn to you my request."
Next go to your cauldron. If you don't have a cauldron you will need something to burn incense in. Take a small pinch of the incense you mixed earlier and sprinkle it on the coal or whatever you use to burn and speak the following words:
"I make to you Venus and to you Cupid this offering of incense to increase the strength of my magick."
Next take the rose oil again and say as you sprinkle one drop of oil on the coal:
"I add the essence of rose to this brew."
Pick up the lavender oil and again with a drop of lavender say:
"I add the essence of lavender to this brew."
Then take a moment sitting on the ground to look into the flame of the pink candle and visualize the outcome you seek. Once you have completed that release the Goddess and God and then undo your circle....your ritual is now complete.
Before you begin your spell, you must get into the right frame of mind. One of the best ways that I have found to do this is to take a ritual bath. This serves two purposes -- one, it relaxes you and gives you time to meditate on the spell that you are about to perform, and two, if you throw a tablespoon or two of sea salts into the water, it offers protection.
After you have taken your ritual bath, you may begin your spell. Begin by lighting an incense stick or cone. Next, take one of the pink candles and hold it in your hands. Visualize your need -- your desire to find true love. Next annoint your candle with the oil that you have chosen. This is done by placing a little of the oil on your fingertips. Grasp the candle at its midpoint with your left index finger and thumb, and use your right index finger and thumb to stroke oil on the candle from the midpoint up to the top of the candle. Next, grasp the candle at its midpoint with your right index finger and thumb, and use your left index finger and thumb to stroke oil on the candle from the midpoint down to the bottom of the candle. Continue in this fashion until the entire candle has been annointed. While ritually annointing your candle, visualize a pure white beam of light coming up from Mother Earth, entering your body through the soles of your feet and another beam of white light coming down from the Universe and entering your body through the top of your head. Envision the energy of these beams of light flowing throughout your body and mingling together, finally concentrating in your hands, causing them to feel warm and to tingle. Now continue to stroke your candle until you feel the energy from your hands transfer to the candle. Your candle is now charged with your personal energy and magickal intent. Pick up the next pink candle and hold it in your hands. Visualize the man or woman that you desire (not a specific person -- just the type of person you desire). Think about the traits that you are looking for in a mate. After you have finished your visualization, annoint the candle (as above). Place the two pink candles in holders on your altar. Place the rose quartz in between the two candle holders. Encircle the two candle holders with the nine rose buds. Light the two candles and visualize yourself in a loving relationship with the perfect mate. Continue this visualization as long as possible. Allow your candles to burn down completely. Keep one of the rose buds and your rose quartz to carry with you in your purse or pocket to reinforce your magickal intention. Scatter the eight remaining rose buds to the four corners of the wind, as an offering. Know that the Powers of the Universe are now working on your behalf to manifest your desired result. Think no more of it. It is finished. So Mote It Be!!!
