A Spell for Those Who Are Lonely
Have you moved to a new location and have yet to meet the sort of people you are inclined to make friends with? Or maybe shyness is stopping you going out and making friends? This spell should help.
You will need:
A piece of scrap paper
A piece of parchment
An orange candle
An empty hurricane lamp
A bolline or burin
Take some time to write down what your personality traits are, your likes and dislikes and a few sentences that summarize your character. Now précis what you have written in as few words as possible, but retaining their essence, and write these on the parchment. The reason for keeping the words to a minimum is that now you inscribe them onto the candle.
Fill the jar one third of the way up with salt and bury the rolled up piece of parchment in it before sealing the jar and putting it in as safe a place as possible near your bed.
Before you go to bed, put the inscribed candle into the hurricane lamp and light it. Make sure that it is in a safe place, and that if you have a cat or dog, they are kept out of the bedroom as accidents can happen.
Focus on the flame seeing how much better your life will be when new friends have come into it. Say something along the lines of:
Help me, please, to make new friends,
So my loneliness will be at an end.
And let it be done, that it harm no one
As you drift off to sleep, see what you have inscribed on the candle drift out of the room, through your house and out into the world. Waken confident that your loneliness will soon be over. And now for the difficult part. Making new friends is a two-way process. You can’t just sit there and wait for the phone to ring. Make the effort. Go out, even if it’s just to sit in a coffee shop with a good book, and let the magic work for you.
