Be What You Want to Attract
Put that phrase on a sticky note and post it where you will see it every day. Then make a list of the qualities you desire in a soul mate. Remember: Like Attracts Like. To attract someone who is fun to be with and adventurous, become fun and adventurous. Pursue whatever qualities you wish to attract in a mate and nurture them within yourself. Join a class or Meetup for people who share your passion. This will create an energetic shift within you, and place you physically in the realm of someone with similar interests.
Remember that list you made of desirable qualities for your ideal soul mate? Take another look at it. The correct way to do a love spell is to ask the Universe to bring you a man or woman (Be specific. Otherwise, you might end up with a new pet) who has the qualities you listed. One witch I know found her soul mate through this sort of love spell. Unfortunately, she forgot to add “good health” to the list, and was heartbroken when her husband died at an early age.
Never direct a love spell at a specific person. Serious karmic consequences will ensue. Besides, why would you want someone who was only with you because of binding magic? Respect free will. You may, however, name a particular person in a releasing spell, because you are not trying to control his or her fate, just your own.
