Having a divine partner in your life is fun, nourishing, and rewarding…and it’s no joke. It calls up all your “stuff” so that you have the opportunity to look at it, heal it, let go of it, and become stronger and more yourself than you otherwise could have been. It’s a lifelong challenge and a lifelong joy. What I’m getting at here is that you have to be ready – not just for roses and chocolates, but also for looking into the dark places and facing your pain.
…So are you? Does the idea fill you with a joyful thrill, even if it also feels a little intimidating at the same time? Sort of like the idea of skydiving, or traveling to a foreign locale by yourself? If so, it might just be the right time to send out a magical invitation to that special someone, wherever and whoever he or she may be. (Remember, it’s important for your magical intentions to be filled with authentic inspiration and enthusiasm.)
This coming Monday is the new moon, so I thought I’d share this ritual (from Holistic Energy Magic) now so that you have the weekend to consider, clear your mind, and steady your heart.
Here it is:
Working magic for attracting a partner must be done carefully. While of course we don’t want to attract just anyone, I am not a proponent of the old “make a list of every quality you want in a partner” technique, as the Universe (or the part of us that is one with everything) knows much, much better than our rational mind what partner will be perfect for us at any given time. We’re not ordering a pizza, after all; rather, we’re attracting a multifaceted, complex human being with an ineffable eternal essence! With that in mind, in this ritual you’ll begin by getting your vibration into a very clear and positive space because like attracts like, and then you’ll set the clear intention to allow the Universe to find you a partner who is ideal for you in every way.
Oh, and never ever do this or any spell to attract a partner while visualizing or naming a specific person, or prolonged misery for all concerned will certainly ensue. (Was that warning emphatic enough to dissuade you? I hope so! I like to think my magical mistakes of the past were good for something!)
Wake up before sunrise on the morning of a new moon. Go outside and face east. Just as the sun peeks above the horizon, say:
Feel the light of the sun blessing you with its gentle yet powerful energy.
The next morning, and every morning up until the morning of the full moon, as soon as you open your eyes in the morning (or at least sometime in the morning before you go about your day), feel sunlight shining on you and into your heart as you inwardly say:
On the night of the full moon, go outside and gaze at the moon, basking in its gentle glow. Say:
Feel the receptive, mystical light of the moon bathing you and rendering you radiant and irresistibly magnetic. Note that you may attract a number of potential partners after this ritual: don’t assume the first one that appears is the one. Instead, keep an open mind, honor the journey, and have fun!
