Magnets are a useful ingredient for sympathetic magic. They are most often used to attract your desires to you -- much the same way they attract pieces of metal. You will most often see them used in money spells, but their uses are limitless. If there is something you want, a magnet can help you pull it in.
Using Magnets in Spells
Magnets and magnetic lodestones are similar, in that they attract iron filings, but still very different. Lodestones are naturally formed, while magnets are pieces of magnetized metal. The power of a lodestone is said to be gentle, consistent, and strong. Magnet power is said to be stronger and sharper.
Magnets and lodestones should be treated with care. Lodestones should be fed with iron filings or magnetic sand. Man-made magnets can lose their magnetism through heat or physical trauma. Whether you choose lodestones or magnets, treat them well and they will treat you well in return.
A Simple, General Magnet Spell
You can use this simple template to create a magnet spell for whatever need you have. Start with a horseshoe magnet, a candle of the proper color, some herbs, an appropriate oil, and a piece of parchment paper. Some suggestions include:
- For money, a green candle, five finger grass, basil, cinnamon, and Money Drawing oil.
- For success, a gold candle, ginger, all spice, sugar, and some Success or Prosperity oil.
- For love, a pink candle, rose buds, lavender, jasmine, and Love oil.
- For health, a white candle, spearmint, all heal, life everlasting, and Healing oil.
Carve your intent into the candle. You can use words (for example, you and your intended lover's names for love-drawing) or symbols (a dollar for prosperity). Anoint the candle with the oil, and sprinkle it with the powdered herbs. Write your desire on a piece of parchment paper, and place it in front of the candle with the magnet on top. Hold your hands over the candle, parchment, and magnet, and state your desire out loud. Light the candle, and allow it to burn. As it burns, meditate or pray on your goal -- this will help you raise your magical power, so you can direct it to your intention. When you are through, keep the magnet and bury the spell remains near your front door.
Two-Magnet Money Jar Spell
For some spells, you may wish to use two magnets or lodestones. This spell will also require a piece of paper or parchment, a jar with a lid, some Money Drawing or Quick Money oil, coins or paper money (even play money), cloves, sassafras, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
This spell can go one of two ways. If you desire long-term prosperity, write your desire on the paper, anoint the corners with Money Drawing oil, and sandwich it between two lodestones. Place it in the jar. Add the coins, paper money, herbs, and a bit of Irish moss. Hold the jar in your hands, and say...
With these herbs, and with these stones,
I bring wealth and fortune into my home.
Picture yourself financially thriving. When you feel the jar is ready, put the lid on it and place it somewhere safe. Once a week, pick up the jar, shake it, and repeat the words while you visualize yourself wealthy and happy.
For an immediate financial need, use write the amount of money you need on the paper, anoint the corners with Quick money oil, and sandwich it between two magnets. Place it in the jar. Add the coins, paper money, herbs, and a bit of ginger. Hold the jar in your hands, and say...
Money, money, come to me.
Pay my bills, and set me free.
Picture yourself paying off whatever you need money for. When you feel the jar is ready, put the lid on it and set it somewhere safe. Every day, pick it up, shake it, and repeat the words as you picture money coming to you.
Magnets and lodestones look like simple tools, but do not let that deceive you. Their powers of attraction are legendary, and they can be added to almost any spell intended to draw something to you. Feed your lodestones, care for your magnets, and they will only grow more magically powerful with use.
