Please note that in the normal process of day-to-day life, feelings of love do ebb and flow.  Relationships are things that require time and attention and sometimes hard work, but they are really the mainstay of our existence.  This ritual is designed to help you renew what already exists between the two of you.  It is not designed to control or manipulate someone into caring for you against their will. 


Best Day to do Ritual:  Friday, the day of Venus
Least Favorable Day:  Saturday, the day of Saturn
Best Moon Phase:  Waxing, when the Moon is growing from new to full.

Sometimes when life becomes truly stressful, or just a dull routine, our relationships seem to take a back seat to everything else that is going on.  We begin to take each other for granted, or problems arise that demand so much of our time and attention that we forget what we once meant to each other.  If this has happened in your relationship, or if you have a serious complication in your life, try this to help you re-energize the love you once shared.

Things to do before ritual:

·    You will need a photograph of you and your loved one together, or some other object that you shared that has significant meaning to you.  This will help connect the two of you on a psychic level.  If you have a favorite song, it would be good to have it playing in the background during your pre-ritual bath to help you acquire the appropriate mind frame.
·   
·    Place a red cloth on your altar, or if you don't have one, white will do.
·   
·    Once you have gathered these things, it is important to no longer focus on the problems of your relationship.  The rest of the time should be devoted to remembering what you once shared and developing a positive mind set to having it again.
·   
·    Your ritual kit  (available at our Cauldron Bubbles ) includes a bath salt blended to relax you and scented to induce the proper vibrations.  Remember that the sense of smell triggers things deep in our brain and emotional centers.  That is why I always recommend a bath as opposed to a shower.  As you soak and cleanse yourself, breathe deep and slow.  Allow all negative thoughts and energies to be washed away.
·   
·    Once you have done this you may put on your ritual robe or whatever you feel is appropriate for the task ahead.
·   
·    At your altar, anoint yourself, your red candle, the crystal included in your kit, and all other things you have decided to use with the special anointing oil that is also in the kit.  While you are anointing these things focus on the person you love and the future you want to have with him or her.
·   
·    When all this is done declare Sacred Space.
·   
·    Light the red candle and the incense included in the kit and take the crystal in your strongest hand.
·   
·    While you gaze into the candle flame allow the feelings you have for that special person to build inside of you and repeat this chant:
·                                                             "Love of Mine,
·                                                              Lost in time,
·                                                              I call to you,
·                                                              My love is true".
·   
·    Then direct that energy into the crystal you are holding.  Do this for as long as you feel necessary.  You are charging this crystal not only with your feelings of love, but with your desire to regain what was lost.
·   
·    At no time allow negative thoughts to enter your mind.  If doubt or anxiety start to rise, take some deep breaths and begin to build the charge again.  It helps to look at the picture or what ever object you have chosen to help you make your psychic connection with your lover.
·   
·    The amount of time that you do this is strictly dependent on you, but you should give it at least 20-30 minutes.
·   
·    Once you have decided that a sufficient amount of time has passed, you can choose to let the red candle burn itself out or you can snuff it out and perform this same ritual nightly until the full of the moon.  In fact, if your time permits, this is what I recommend.  But you must make that decision based on your own life and the amount of time you have to devote to this.  Remember to repeat this at the close of your ritual:
·                                                    "This is my will,
·                                                      So mote it be,
·                                                      Ever mindful of the Law of Three".
·   
·    When you feel that you have sufficiently charged the crystal, give it to the person you love as a token of your feelings for him/her.  If this is not   possible, place the crystal with the photograph or other object in a red cloth and tie it all together with a white string.  Anoint this bundle with the special oil and place it where it will not be disturbed.  Don't be discouraged if results are not immediately forthcoming; remember we work with subtle energies, not controlling energies.
·   
·    Once you have achieved your desire don't forget to show your appreciation by scattering some corn, birdseed, or other food outside for the creatures and spirits of Nature.
