3 years ago...
“I really need this Deesh ! I believe there is a higher spirit.” And the phone clicked from the other end. It was my friend. We has spent the last 8 months constantly reminding ourselves that we are not putting ourselves out there enough. She had been rejected by someone she considered the love of her life.. and I was madly in love with someone for 10 years – without him knowing. So I said to myself – even though this may seem like madness – I am going to take the plunge. We had decided to cast a LOVE SPELL. I always knew there was a hidden WICCAN within me somewhere. I believe in the power of Tarot Cards, Astrology, Numerology – even though i do not follow them on a daily basis. We both had actively used a better part of the day finding Spells which needed the least amount of ingredients.
We finally boiled it down to 1 Love Spell. It read :
This spell is definitely not ethical, but it is very effective. Remember that magic is a two way street and that you will be equally bound. Beware casting this spell unless you are SURE you want to be bound to this person!
•Dried white roses
After scurrying far and wide we managed to find almond oil – but DRIED WHITE ROSES ?? We searched pot pourri’s with white roses and then every other flower shop until it was really late in the night. We finally tracked down a florist who was throwing again white rose petals that were blackening. We got them back home and with a hair dryer, we dried the white rose petals. We knew that this was technically not the right thing to do. But after 4 hours of searching one gets a bit too desperate.
We got back home and went to my balcony – which was the only un-carpeted area of my house. We even bathed before we actually performed the ritual. To make things more spooky we wore white bed-sheets and looked like FLINT-STONES. White for divine and pure – almost saintly. Because this was WHITE MAGIC. Then we got down to performing the ritual as instructed
“Sprinkle dried white roses with almond oil and burn them inside a magic circle as you recite the spell. If you have trouble getting the roses to burn add slips of paper with your names written on them.”
We did the needful, only to find that the white rose petals were not burning with the almond oil. We carefully made slips of paper on which we had written our lovers name in RED felt pen. Then we started chanting the chant...
Incantation to chant
”By all that lives on land and sea
By the incoming and the outgoing
By the odd numbers and the even
By the power of three times three
Thy waking thoughts shall be of me
From now throughout eternity
No peace or increase shall you find
Until your hand is joined in mine
I bind thee heart and soul and mind to me
I bind thee eyes and thoughts and loins
I bind thee to me forever
With cords of velvet longing
By the white rose and the rosemary
By the caverns and the groves
By the silence of the mountains
By the chasms and the standing stones
I bind thee forever to me
With cords of silken danger
Isis, Astarte, Ishtar
I bind thee to me forever
So Mote It Be”
After half an hour, the ashes had blackened my floor. We gathered the ashes and put them in a handkerchief. We made a small Potli of it and then tied it to immerse it in the holy waters..
3 years later... TODAY
1. The man still does not know I LOVE him.
2. My friend is married to another man – it was a love marriage
3. Even though this LOVE SPELL didn’t work , I still believe it has magical abilities
4. I still believe there is a WICCIAN within me
5. And even though 13 years down the line he doesn’t know – i believe he will know someday... That there is this someone who LOVES him, even though she had dumped the idea of being with him several times.
