Do Love Spells Really Work?Posted October 14, 2014 in Soul Dating & Love
Love is, by far, the most common topic that clients want to talk about during Soul Sessions. So it is not surprising that I am frequently asked: “Do love spells really work?”
The short answer is yes.
Love spells are effective under the right circumstances and conditions, but the real question is not if they work, but how can they most optimally be working for you.
But before you break out your eye of newt…here’s my cautionary tale.
My Love Spell Story:
In my early 20’s I was single, living in San Francisco. At a gallery tour I met a sweet artist, recently relocated from Hawaii, who was also an incredible Mavricks surfer. We began dating and through the relationship I was introduced to the world of surfing. It was not long became my life became oriented around wave checks and surf trips. I became pretty obsessed and addicted to the feel of the power of the wave beneath me.
The relationship did not last, but my love of surfing did. Surfing became my spiritual practice: an incredible way to connect to nature while getting instant feedback on staying in the moment, or “the flow” (if you are in your head or future-tripping you will wipe out immediately). Professional surfers became my personal rockstars–water Gods schooled in the spirituality of the flow of life.
After my break-up with the artist, one of my best girlfriends, (also single), and I took a trip to Oahu. On the plane ride there I was reading a surfing magazine with one of those water Gods on the cover. I was sure this blond locked Poseidon was my dream man.
On the beach of the North Shore, my friend and I enacted a love spell. We burned some incense and stated our intentions at dusk. I visualized the man from the magazine and said I was ready to receive a romance with a guy just like the one on the cover.
It was much to my surprise that 15 minutes later, I was sitting with him at a restaurant down the beach.
After our love spell, we had headed down the street to grab some food. Shocked to see cover boy and his best friend sitting right next to the one open table, we sat down and ordered. Soon cover boys friend leaned over and asked us if we were from Oregon (creative opening line, btw). They said they had been guessing where we were from based on our style. We all began chatting it up and hit it off. And that’s how I began dating cover boy.
But the story does not end riding into the sunset on the white horse. Later, after cover boy came to visit in San Francisco, I realized something felt majorly “off”. It felt unorganic and forced. Our personalities were not really a match. In fact, I often found myself bored and uninspired by his overly simple outlook on life. I realized that the initial strong connection we shared was merely a result of the love spell we cast on the beach.
The moral of the story is the classic and age-old: “be careful what you wish for.” I discovered that the gift of conscious manifesting also comes with responsibility (and karma). If I could summon people, events and things into my life, I wanted to be doing it not just from a place of ego (hot surfer dude) but from Soul (a relationship founded on true Soul connection).
We are all incredibly powerful beings gifted with amazing spiritual abilities which shape our physical world, daily. Use them wisely.
