Linking your favorite traveling artists across the globe
Because the art of bliss is a holistic science, not only will your Romance Key benefit from this ritual, but every other life key will benefit as well.
2 sticks vanilla incense
2 red roses
2 pink candles
1 pinch dried damiana
A bottle of cheap red wine (or any red wine you feel comfortable using)
2 small lepidolites, cleansed in cold water and white sage smoke
A delicious chocolate bar
A lighter or matches
On a Friday, during a waxing moon, when the moon is visible in the night sky, draw a bath. Light the two pink candles and 2 sticks vanilla incense near the bath. Add the entire bottle of red wine, the petals of the roses, and the pinch of damiana to the bathwater.
Hold your hands over the water and say:
Goddesses of Love, Hathor,Venus, Aprhodite, I call on you! Infuse this water with your beautiful energy. Fill me up with the vibrations of passion, romance, and love. Beautiful Goddesses, I thank you!
Soak for at least 45 minutes, drinking water as necessary to stay hydrated. Get out, dry off, throw on some sort of loose, comfortable, beautiful clothing (if necessary), and take the lepidolites outside. Hold them up to the light of the moon and say:
Goddesses of Love, Hathor, Venus, Aphrodite, I call on you! Please infuse these crystals with the magnetic, swirly, sparkly vibration of open-hearted love and divine passion. With your help, and the help of these crystals, may I become an irresistible love-drawing charm in and of myself. May I experience divine romance that is perfectly suited to me in every way. May my love situation shift and change according to what is in alignment with my truest and most beautiful good. While my healthy boundaries stay strong, may I be totally open and receptive to ideal experiences relating to beauty, passion, and love. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Blessed be! And so it is.
To internalize the energies and seal the deal, slowly and sensuously eat the chocolate. (If you’re allergic or don’t like chocolate, substitute another sensually delicious treat, such as cherries or coconut milk ice cream.)
In the days and weeks ahead, keep the lepidolites near your heart. (You might want to tie them into a piece of cloth and safety pin them to the inside of your clothes. If this isn’t possible with your wardrobe, just keep them somewhere on your person.) Once you feel you’ve sufficiently drawn in the intended energies, place them on your altar as a reminder and a symbol of sensuality, passion, and divine romance.
