Every Witch Way “Love Spells”

This issue I am going to give you my favorite Love Spell.  In my years of doing spells and rituals, love is always the most requested.  This spell is intended to attract the perfect mate and partner.   You will need two candles. One white, and one in your favorite color, some incense, paper and a piece of red material to make a small pouch.
To begin, ground and center yourself, visualize an energy circle around you.  Meditate on all the preconceived ideas you have about the perfect partner. VERY IMPORTANT:  Maybe you have a particular candidate in mind for romance.  Release the thought of that person (it would be unethical to work magick to make a certain person love you; this would violate their free will, and put you in jeopardy of repercussion). Release all notions of what your perfect lover will look like. These are externals, and if you cling to them then you run the risk of overlooking your ideal mate simply because your conscious mind was focused on superficiality.
When your mind is clear and open, hold the candle of your favorite color: this represents you. Meditate, then speak aloud all the qualities and energies you are willing to bring to an intimate relationship. Replace that candle, and pick up the white one. This represents your ideal partner. Speak aloud the essential qualities you desire in a mate, and ask Aphrodite to bring you together in this lifetime. What type of partner do you want to share your days with? What type of relationship do you wish to have? Don’t focus on who you want, rather what you want. (Honesty, commitment, respect, love). On a piece of paper write down all the qualities you want in a potential lover.  Light some incense.  Burn the paper containing your lover’s qualities along with the incense, until all turns to ashes. Put the ashes in a red silk pouch, to be worn or carried with you. (Touch or kiss the pouch frequently throughout the day, remembering what you want.)
Place the two candles at opposite ends of the altar. Each day thereafter, meditate on the perfect loving relationship for a few minutes, and move the two candles an inch close together. If you started on the new moon, then by full moon the candles should be touching.  If possible, I suggest you DO start on the new moon.
The moment you wake up, place light the candles. Silently repeat the following affirmation several times: “May I find the love I seek. May the love I seek find me.” In a notebook, begin to write whatever thoughts come to you. Do not censor yourself. Keep writing until you have to stop and think of something to write. Do this every day for nine days. On the tenth day, burn all of the pages you have written. Gather up the ashes. At dusk, cast the ashes which contain the secret desires of your soul to the universe. Trust that the universe will respond to your call. Now just believe and know that it is so.  Every day, start to find your own magic within.  ‘Til next time… with love, blessings and big, big hugs from Hollywood!  ;o)  xox Patti
