Hey everyone!

 So I wanted to update you on the love spell I recently did. I seem to do these every year, hopeless romantic i guess. I still haven’t found the “right” one though. This time I did some research to try something new. In a book I found a simple spell to attract a lover, it involves a few herbs and a fire. I put my own twist on it, I will explain in a minute.

 Love spells are really tricky, a lot of people do them wrong. My personal belief is that love spells are meant to attract love, not force someone into something that they don’t want. I will never force magick, especially love magick, onto someone.  Would you really be happy with someone knowing it’s not real? I doubt you could get the same feeling inside, you know, that warm tingly thing…you must know what I mean, I swear I wasn’t just having a stroke….anyway..
Marie Leveau - Voodoo Queen
 Back in the day, a well known voodoo queen named Marie Leveau was the one to go to for all your love spell needs. A simple spell she used was asking her female client to bring the glove of the man she wished to bewitch. Marie would fill it with sugar and honey to sweeten him, then a dash of steel powder acting as the magickal catalyst to “seal” the deal. The woman had to then sleep with this under her bed…Not a good idea in a bug heavy area like Louisiana, but hey, if it worked!

 My Love attraction spell was quite simple as well. As stated above, it involved a fire, three herbs and a simple incantation. I wanted to amp it up a little bit though. The herbs I chose were lavender, jasmine and rosemary. These three herbs are notorious for work with love spells. The great thing about lavender is I used to use it a lot starting out, so the smell always reminds me of spells and magick.

 I wanted an extra boost of power. I developed a personal attraction potion. The purpose of its use was to aid in attracting whatever you wish, mixed with certain ingredients or objects would get the desired effect. Attraction PotionLike dressing a green candle with it, and burning that candle surrounded by skullcap and coins would attract money to the caster. I will be selling them eventually, but that comes later.

 So I poured some of my potion into the bottom of my cauldron and dropped more on the top of the candle and lit the flame. As the flame was burning I sprinkled on the herbs from above one at a time. I took my lighter and drew the flame into the herbs so they would burn with the candle.

 A lot of witches feel that spells need to be done on certain days and moon phases, I  usually don’t do this, and my spells for love haven’t exactly worked, so this time I figured to give it a shot. The spell calls for it to be cast on sunset on a friday during a waning moon. So at about 5pm I started my spell.

 I wanted to make sure I was protected so I cast a circle of salt around me, as well as wore an amulet of protection around my neck. I lit a white candle next to my cauldron as well. I sat in front of my burning flame and recited the spell.

My true love’s face i’ve yet to see
I know not what his name may be
But soon his heart will beat for me
Come hither my love, so mote it be

 I focused all my energy on picturing a lover with me, the feeling i’d get, the happiness…everything. After, I kept the candle burning, which took a lot longer than I thought it would. I kept my cauldron near the window and waited hours for it to fully burn. It seemed that it was taking a lot longer than normal, this surprised and intrigued me. I had to sleep and the candle was still burning, so I placed it by my bed (making sure nothing around it could be set on fire) and went to sleep. When I awoke I looked inside the cauldron and everything…i mean everything was burned. Not a drop of wax and the herbs were black ash. I took this as a good sign. Never have I had a candle burn 100%.

 So far nothing has happened, but I keep dreaming about having a lover. I will keep everyone posted, but for now nothing has changed. If anyone wants to try this spell, make sure to let me know how it turns out!! I will keep posting experiences and spells and just random things to keep it interesting. See You soon🙂

sweet serenity,

Derek…
