Every year I am asked by many clients to do love spells. Many are looking to recover lost loves. Even when the energies are ripe for a return to love, many are still frustrated because Karma refuses to allow a reunion until karmic debts are paid. In all of my spell work I begin by educating my clients on the mechanics of Karma because karmic debt is often a reason why a spell will not work or not work completely.
I teach my people to think of Karma as a bank. And, like a bank if a "Karmic Account" is overdrawn during a working then there are "fees and penalties." The best way to remedy this imbalance is to continue to make "Karmic Deposits" BEFORE a work is attempted. I often suggest that my clients do random acts of kindness, donate clothes and food to the poor, help a stranger unconditionally, volunteer at a children's hospital, etc ... and dedicate those acts of charity to whatever deity or energy we are asking for assistance.
Although the magick that I teach is non-secular (Magick Lab Academy), I personally work with Angels and Devas because these are the energies that I connect to the most. When working on Love I often connect to the Hindu Goddess of Love AND Devotion (Parvati) and the ArchAngels Gabriel (the Moon/Messenger) and Hanael the ArchAngel of Love. Raphael is likewise the ArchAngel of Happy Meetings and Happy Marriages. In every work I seek to balance the energies of the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine in order to effect a significant change. In my experience Love is an energy that needs to be nurtured like a seed on itThes way into blossoming into a flower.
But, before any work is done Karma must be addressed so we can see what sort of measurable effects can be expected without any major "Karmic Blowback." My solution to this is to ask my clients to write a list of everything that they want in a partner. Next, anything on that list that they cannot give to a partner themselves they have to cross off. The basis for this is that you cannot ask for anything that you cannot give. Many of you will recognize this from "The Law of Attraction." Once this list is completed and incorporated into the spell along with reasonable "Karmic Deposits" then and only then can a love spell be worked to it's maximum potential.
Magick is an energetic "messenger" and in love these messages can and should be delivered straight to the heart. The issue I have with forcing someone to love against their will is a violation of their freedom of choice. Instead I encourage my clients to leave the option to "choose" open in order to spare themselves the Karmic Debt incurred by violating someone's free will. In most cases a message of Love delivered to the heart with heart felt sincerity is enough to produce the desired results. I do not encourage anyone to force the situation, but to make themselves more lovable which is the better way.
