If there’s one thing that Witches are famous for some reason…it’s
our ability to cast spells. For those whose knowledge of magick began
at Hogwarts, it may come as a surprise that casting a spell doesn’t
mean throwing arcane and somewhat disgusting, items into a bubbling cauldron.
Nor does it require the use of a special wand and sparkly, flashing lights.
Spellcraft is actually quite simple and, if you follow the rules, often quite effective. There’s that “R” word again. Yes friends, as with all things magickal there are rules to follow unless it doesn’t bother you that Karma might come calling, wearing a pair of steel-capped boots!
The one rule:
An it harm none, do as you will.
How easy is that?
In a nutshell this rule, part of the Wiccan Rede, means that you can go ahead and do whatever your heart desires magickally, so long as neither you or anyone else gets hurt or suffers a loss in the process. Do yourself a favour now. Throw out all the notions you may have about Curses, Hexes, or using magick in other ways to “get even”. Even the simplest of Love Spells can be dangerous. If what you’re trying to do would make the other person act in any way other than normal, then you’d best stop right now. Free will is a powerful thing and should never be played with.
Okay, doom and gloom over. You’ve been fairly warned so we’ll just move on.
There are three major spells that everyone, at some point in time, will try and most times will fail at. They are
The reasons these spells fail are numerous, but most times it’s because you’re reading someone else’s words and there’s very little passion in that. If you can create your own, based on your own personal needs at the time, it makes that spell a little more personal and a lot more potent.
Here is a very simple love spell that I hope you’ll adapt for
your own purposes. The words and visual images I have when I write them
aren’t the same as when you read them, so I don’t expect you
to follow along word for word.
Here we go!
*note: I performed this spell four years ago before I moved here from Canada, and within three months of coming to Australia, I met my current fiancé.
On your altar, or coffee table if you don’t have one, place one
red candle and one white candle. Make sure you have a cauldron, or other
fireproof container to which you’ve added some sand. (It helps absorb
On a piece of parchment, or fine writing paper, write down the qualities of the person that you’d like to have come into your life. The colour of ink doesn’t matter, although you could use red or pink if you have it. (Keeps with the theme if coloured ink is used)
When you’re finished writing, concentrate on the words and try
to envision how this person makes you feel, the things you’d like
to do together, and allow yourself to feel happy. You should feel happy,
you’re creating something wonderful to look forward to!
When you’re ready, light the piece of paper from both candles and say something like:
I ask that the Gods/Universe send to me this person
I may not yet know their face or name,
Still I know they’re out there,
And they’re looking for me just the same.
If you’re like me, and don’t really care whether the Gods/Universe
send you a male or a female partner, you can feel free to add that into
your wording. There is a twin flame out there for all of us, it doesn’t
matter which as long as you both burn brightly.
Put the paper into the fireproof container, clear up your space, and then just relax.
