When casting a love spell it is very important to remember that to cast for some particular persons attention, although very attractive to many, can be a practice fraught with unseen or unconsidered outcomes.
I suggest, when casting a spell for love, you clear your mind of an intention for a particular person to be the one to fall for you. It is generally better to cast a spell to attract to you the perfect love for you. This leaves the spell open to bring to you the qualities you are looking for in love, regardless, of the person or circumstances.
Often we think we have found the person or love situation that will be most fulfilling to us, but we take into consideration, the other person or people involved in our quest for love, have free will. By casting with the intentions of particulars, we in effect are hindering or taking the others freewill, from them.
In the practice of spell craft there is what I call the law of three. This is a concept that the energy you put out will return to you three times over. It doesn’t matter what type of energy you are working (heavy or light) it will come full circle and return to you. Because there are so many different traditions that work with spell craft you can interpret this to fit your particular belief system. For some this will be returned in differing degrees, yet it is always returned.
An example of this type of spell working out in a way that wasn’t expected is... The time I decided to cast a spell for a particular individual. The spell worked, we got together and he moved into my home with my four children. At first I thought things were going great, and I ended up pregnant. Our daughter was born and she is an amazing kid, but... he was not the right man for me... Our relationship became distant and detached from each other and I found out that he was treating my older children poorly... we eventually broke up after I found out he was seeing another woman... the lesson I learned, was, in matters of casting for love, not to cast for particulars, but instead to cast for the one who is right for me... I did cast a spell of this nature and I now have a wonderful man in my life, who I would not have picked for myself.
A simple, yet effective, spell to follow is to choose a time when you can honestly say you have no particular person in mind.
Start by clearing your mind, and getting into a place where you feel in love with yourself. You can do this by listening to music that uplifts your spirit, or by simply sitting quietly and thinking of anything you love.
Once you are in this place of peace and love, gather up some pink, red, or a combination of the two, rose petals. You will also want to have a pink, red, and white candle. If you don’t have these items other flower petals can be substituted, and one or more of the above colored candles, will work.
If you have a picture, statue, or some other item that represents, a feminine deity you associate with unconditional love, such as Kuan Yin, Mary, Isis, or any others you feel comfortable with, bring this with you.
You will also want a bowl of water and some incense of some kind. I usually use sage, but rose or some other floral scented incense is fine.
Have a clean piece of paper (and a pen)with you and a fire proof container of some kind. Terra cotta flower pots are great, or you can go all out and get a cast iron cauldron.
Choose a place where you can place these items and this is where you will cast your spell and set your altar.
Now that you have everything ready, begin by lighting your incense and waving it around you in a circular motion, while stating out loud or in your heart that you are clearing this area of any and all restricting energy, and filling this space with complete love and trust.
Put your incense in a fire safe burner of your choice on your altar.
Place your image of the female deity on your altar asking her to help bring love into all areas of your life.
Now you will light each of the three candles, starting with white for universal love, pink for love of family and friends, and finally red for passion and sensuality.
As you stand before your altar float several of the rose petals in the bowl of water to symbolize the love you are intending to draw to your self to come to you in a way that is nourishing to both of you.
Now you will take the paper and pen and write all of the qualities you wish to have in your new love. It may take some time to really get them all down, and don’t worry about the order they are written.
After you have the qualities written down (remember to keep your mind clear of any particular person) Use your own words to ask that the person who best fits this description is brought into your life with the highest and best intentions for all involved. As you say these words, light this paper on fire with one of the candles and place the paper into the fire proof container to burn completely out.
Now thank your deity for being by your side in this working and thank all the other energies involved in your working, and state that your space is now clear.
Leave the candles and incense to burn completely out. After they have burned completely out gather up the flower petals, candle leavings, paper ashes, and remainder of incense and put them in a pouch of your choice. Place this pouch in a safe place and wait for your true love to come into your life. Don’t be discouraged if your results aren’t immediate, but don’t be surprised if they are.
I hope this simple spell can be of help to anyone looking to bring love into thier life. Remember.... Spells can be informal or formal, you do not have to follow this to the tee, but it is a good guide. You can find many books available through Madame Molly's and we also offer different spells for different intentions.
Have a Wicked Good day!
