Obtain a new job, banish a pesky ex, or attract romantic attention with one of these fun and easy spells from my brand new book, You Are Magical.
In addition to being a 100% true statement, that is also the title of my brand new book, due out next month!
There are two parts to the book: Part I is Finding Your Magic. In Part I, you learn the basic building blocks of magic and learn how to apply them in practical ways, in ways that bring measurable results.
Part II is Working Your Magic. This is a comprehensive spell book specifically designed with simplicity and accessibility in mind.
The spell categories include Manifesting Abundance, Activating Success, Enchanting Your Love Life, Beautifying and Harmonizing, Blessing and Protecting, Binding and Banishing, Breaking Hexes and Transmuting Negative Energy, Healing Yourself and Others, and Enhancing Your Magical Power.
The following three spells are, respectively, from the sections entitled Activating Success, Binding and Banishing, and Enchanting Your Love Life.
Spell 1: Obtain a New Job
A royal blue, navy blue, or black candle in a jar or candle holder
An iron pyrite crystal, cleansed in bright sunlight for 2-3 minutes
Paper and pen
Your computer and resume-writing software
Computer paper and printer
A manila folder
It’s ideal to do this ritual on a new moon or when the moon is waxing, but if you happen to be job hunting during the waning moon, that’s fine too.
In the evening, light the candle. Close your eyes, breathe deeply, and center yourself while holding the pyrite in your right hand. When you feel calm and grounded, consider the ideal qualities that will be present in your new job. How much money would you be comfortable with? What are would you like the job to be in? How would you like to feel around your coworkers? What other qualities matter to you?
Place the pyrite next to the paper and write this all down in the present tense, as if it’s already true. Start with “I love my new job!” Then continue with the qualities, describing the job as if you already have it. Be as specific as possible about what really matters to you, but don’t be so specific that you limit the universe’s creativity. For example, if you write “I get to wear my cowboy hat at work,” this will seriously narrow down the possibilities. Writing “I get to wear clothes that are both comfortable and attractive” will keep many more options open. Then again, if that cowboy hat is a deal breaker, write it down!
When you’ve perfectly fine-tuned the qualities you desire in your new job, conclude your list with “Thank you, universe! For all of this or something even better.” Then sign and date.
Next, open up your resume (or a resume template if you don’t have one already) and get it just right. In addition to including anything you would usually write, make sure that your stated objective is not about the job you want to obtain but rather the positivity and blessings you’d like to share with your new employer and customers. For example, let’s say you’d like to find a position as a dance teacher. Instead of writing “Objective: to find a job teaching dance to children,” you could write “Objective: to share the joy of dance and movement with children, and to ignite their self-esteem in the process.” Or, if you’d like to find a job as a server in a restaurant, you could write “Objective: to offer a truly exceptional dining experience by listening to my customers and making genuine connections with them.” Fine-tune your objective until it feels authentic to you and reminds you of how much you have to offer. Set the intention to remember this objective when writing cover letters and communicating with future employers.
Print out your resume. Place it in the manila folder and set it on your altar or in another special place. Fold up the ideal job qualities, folding the paper toward you each time. Place it on top of the folder, and set the candle (in the holder) and the pyrite on top of the folded paper. Allow the candle to burn safely for at least one hour, then extinguish it.
The next day, make copies of your resume and begin your job hunt in earnest, keeping the pyrite with you (i.e. in your pocket or purse) at all times.
Spell 2: Banish a Pesky Ex
A small piece of paper and pen
A cauldron or pot in which you can safely burn paper
A lighter or matches
A half-pint (8-ounce) Mason jar filled almost to the top with water
Write the full name (or as much of it as you know) of the ex-partner on the paper. Crumple it lightly, place it in the cauldron, and light it on fire. As it burns, say:
Your feelings are like fire and they now burn themselves out.
Your presence in my life is now purified and demolished in the cleansing flame.
If necessary, relight until the paper is mostly or completely reduced to ashes. Pour the water over the ashes and say:
Your feelings were like fire and they are now extinguished.
Your presence in my life now flows away from me forever.
Swirl up the mixture and pour it back into the jar. Close the lid tightly and put it in your freezer. Close the freezer door and say:
The fire is now ice, and the fire is gone, and it is as if it has never been. You are now banished from my life. I shall not hear from you, see you, or think of you. You are gone from me – invisible, frozen out – and I have already forgotten who you are.
To keep the magic strong, do not contact this person in any way or even speak of them. Truly behave as if they do not exist to you. Once you feel the threat of them coming back has passed, you can thaw out the jar, flush the ashy water down the toilet, and recycle.
Spell 3: Attract Romantic Attention
Perform this spell before attending any event or gathering during which you’d like to attract romantic attention in the most fun possible way. But please don’t do it more than once per season, or it will lose its kick (that’s four times a year, max).
Also, you might want to refrain from doing this before someone else’s wedding or birthday party. It’s just, you know, good magical etiquette.
1 white or off-white soy candle and holder
1 stick Nag Champa incense and holder
1 cup loose-leaf white tea, empowered in the light of a full moon for 5-10 minutes
As you draw a warm bath, light up your bathroom with nothing but the candle. Also light the incense. When the bathtub is full, scatter the tea across the top of the water. Stand over the tub, direct your palms toward the water, and visualize very bright golden-white light channeling down through the top of your head and hp through the soles of your feet, meeting at your heart and then going down through your arms and hands and into the water. See the water as surrounded and filled with a brilliantly radiant miniature sun.
Get in the water and say:
I am like the moon: my cool radiance enraptures.
I am like the sun: around me all revolves.
Stay in the bath for ten to twenty minutes, feeling your irresistible radiance increasing and pulsating as you soak. The spell’s effects will last twelve to twenty-four hours.
