What are Love spells

All you need to know about spells for love

Love Spell

Love spell ( singular of the word Love Spells ) is an intention, desire or wish that is amplified through a ritual, chant or belief to produce effects related to love. The idea is to manifest that intention so that it produces visible effects. Love Magic focuses specifically on spells used to attract love, new relationships or may even be used to return an ex-partner (lost love). The person casting a love spell is called spell caster or Witch.

There are many types of spells ranging from Voodoo to Wiccan magic, Egyptian Spells and more, these are divided in two main categories: Black Magic and White Magic.

Spells that are used for love often require instructions and ingredients, these can range from things that are found in nature to materials that are man made. If you are looking for a specific spell it can commonly be found in a Spell Book (also designated Book of Spells) here you can also find the exact instructions on how to cast a spell. In love Magic the spell is often associated with the color red and Friday derivig from the fact that this day was associated to the Goddess Venus (Aphrodite in Greek and Freyja for the Germanics) hence why its still called Friday nowadays: ” Freyja’s Day “

How do love spells work?

For a spell to work certain criteria has to be met:

Spells should be casted following exact instructions. The person casting it should believe in its power because faith is an important element to make magic spells work.

Another important element is intention itself. Only when the intention of the spell caster is clear it will be possible to achieve results. The principle of Magick is to materialize.

love spellsWhen looking for authentic spell casters that offer help with love and relationships it is important to do a good amount of research and test the sorcerer’s knowledge on the subject. While there is no such thing as best spell casters there are certain measures one can take to select the right person of trust when for example hiring someone to do spell work for you.

The spell works by aiming to promote love between the couple or help harmonize the relationship. A large portion of spells is called lost lover spells which are casted to retrieve a lost lover, commonly also known as “ex back spells “.

Attention: While Magic is strongly connected to the spiritual world it is important to use your own discernment. There is no scientific proof for the effectiveness of a spell meaning that most reports are based on personal experience, religious views and historical reports some of them from ancient times. It is known that love Magic has been used by ancient civilizations and connected to their deities and cultural aspects which vary all around the world.

lovespells24So what are Love Spells? As previously explained they are based on formulas, also known as spells of love, moorings or enchantments that can be written or spoken used to obtain specific results.

Dating back to the Greco-Roman era rituals have gained more and more popularity over the years. Progressing with time during the Mid Ages “Witches” as they were called were persecuted by the Inquisition in a so called Witch-Hunt , in modern times the term “spell casters” is used and while there is a larger acceptance towards sorcery in some countries it is still illegal. Some sorcerers follow spiritual paths or certain religions ( Voodoo and Wicca ) others chose their very own individual path of enlightenment.

Love magic has been used for centuries, whether one seeks to cast a spell by themselves ( take a look at our guide on how to cast a love spell ) or uses a spell casting service, from a moral perspective it is important to make sure about the consequences before practicing Magick.

There are two main branches in sorcery, White magic, and Black magic, some sources argue that there is also Grey Magic these are classified depending on the intent of the spell caster and the purpose of the spell. When the intention is to heal, to restore or the cause no harm it is considered a White Magic Spell.

But do Spells for Love really work?

Scientific research agrees that there are many findings related to this subject. The Paranormal has been studied in the fields of Psychology, Sociology and History and spells are still studied until today. Research believes that the success of spells used for mending a broken love or even health related requests could be connected to the placebo effect. Recent discoveries in Serbia found skeletons with magic scrolls depicted upon precious materials such as gold and silver, some of them were used for protection purposes, others to inflict harm upon enemies who would interfere with them. These magic rituals are not unfamiliar to the Egyptians who placed curses upon those who would damage the tombs of the Pharaoh.

Introduction to Love Magic: For beginners, it is suggested to start with a simple love spell using spell candles or candle magic.

While candles are materials that are easy to find, you may sometimes want to make your own personalized candle, preferably representing the person of your choice. Some casters also incorporate personal materials such as hair or nails, a specific perfume or pieces of fabric that are believed to make the spell more powerful.

Magic words:  Words used to set free a specific effect or action. While focusing on an intention words are used to set the intention free and verbalize it.

The most famous magic word used is “Abracadabra” deriving from the Hebrew and meaning “ I create what I speak “.

It was believed that when the word, when inscribed in magic amulets, would help banish diseases.

A prayer can be religious, performed by the individual or a group of people.

Celtic spell casting: The Celtic tradition features the God aspect also known as horned god derived from the ancient god Cernunnos. This god represents fertility and when working together with the Goddess, life is created.  The Celtic culture believes in life after death.

Norse spell casting: Norse tradition works with values such as honor, courage, being honest and the notion of responsibility towards one’s family and friends. Mythology plays a very large role in this tradition.

Wiccan magic spells: Wicca is a denomination of the religion of Witchcraft. Founded by a man called Gardner around 1950, it is highly based on traditions that derived from his own experiences. Wicca is an organized and structured practice of Witchcraft Spells and follows a system of initiations and has a hierarchy.Wicca is one of many traditions within the religion or practice of witchcraft. Wiccan Love Spells are considered to be one of the strongest love enchantments due to years of perfecting their art.

Spell casting and Karma –The law of attraction 

One very important factor to consider when doing spell work is karma and the law of attraction.

To simplify karma is the act or deed that follows an action, this action can be from the past, present or in the future. Karma does not, however, mean that what you send comes back to yourself, upon having a positive intention, positive happenings will meet you while focusing on negative intentions, negative aspects may come back at you, this is known as the 3 fold law that is also taken into consideration by Wiccan Magic. There is not only bad karma but also positive or good karma.


How to find the right love spell casters

There are many sites offering spell casting services, but Magic belongs to the esoteric World meaning there are no guarantees. Here are a few tips on how to choose.


Quality control – Search the internet for reviews find trustworthy sources that help you make your decision. One should be able to find real reviews in places like Forums or Groups as long as they are not associated or owned by the service or individual that will be casting the spells.

Real identity –  Make sure that the spell caster is using a real identity,  not using pictures from Google or copied material.

Experience – Spell casting is a complex art and as such you need years of experience. Inquire the spell caster about his experiences and support your decision with your own.

Trust your head not your despair –  Despair is a very bad agent for making decisions. A real individual person or business has to have an Adress and a Name if the spell caster is not willing to share this information on their site they are not being transparent with their work. An authentic spell caster should message you during the ritual to explain what he or she worked and help you with questions. They will take the time to listen to your situation and not pressure you into action.
