Excerpt from Simple Spells for Love by Barrie Dolnick
Spell casting: Not-so-foreign territory
Casting spells is something you do already. The practice is an unconscious ritual in our society. For instance, when you put on perfume, you are amplifying your own energy through scent, which can make you more attractive to others. A gift of red roses is a common love spell, eliciting passionate energy between you and your loved one. Is it any wonder that we all take pleasure in the rituals of romance?
Perfume and red roses are cliches, yet such gifts are charged with ancient significance. Flowers and scents have specific meanings in folklore, which are linked to practices of magic, such as spell casting. This is also true of gemstones. The diamond, a common token of engagement or marriage, is a natural earth crystal that has long symbolized the divine alliance of mind, body, and spirit that is true love. These elements work to heighten the senses, which in turn evoke a deeper, more significant reaction.
Red roses, perfume, diamonds--all are common to the art of attracting love and keeping love, but these are only the most popular examples of the many flowers, scents, and stones that can help you consciously manifest the love you desire. One should also be aware that use of colors, days of the week, and even hours of the day can add to your allure and put more spice in your love life.
The use of spells is not at all new; in fact, it is ancient. And recently there has been increased interest in nature and natural remedies. Spells are like natural remedies, and the elements you will use in your spells are natural to our planet, and often to your own garden. There is no need for eye of newt, bat wings, spider's webs, or whatever else you may have imagined. Although spells exist that call for such items, they are not love spells. And this book is only about love spells.
