Do you yearn for new friendships in your life? If your social life needs a bit of a do-over, or if you’ve recently moved to a new place, this is the spell for you. it is best performed during a waxing moon, as this corresponds with the energy of increase.
This spell requires you to make a small charm bag which you will infuse with your intention of making friends, and carry with you everywhere you go until you have found these friendships.
What You Need for the Friendship Spell:
- An orange pouch or drawstring bag
- A carnelian crystal
- Allspice (roughly a teaspoon, dried)
- An orange or yellow candle
Before you begin the spell…
Take some time to get really clear on what kind of friendships you want in your life.
- Do you prefer a small close-knit group of friends, or a large social circle?
- What types of personalities do you get along with?
- What kind of hobbies would you like to have in common with your new friends?
- What qualities do you value the most in people? Sense of humour? Loyalty? Good listening skills? Note everything down.
Take your time with this step – spend days or weeks on it if you must! The idea is to get really clear on which kinds of friendships would enrich your life. Also, take some time to think about what you have to offer in a friendship, and whether it matches up with your expectations of your friends.
Performing the Spell to Attract New Friendships
First of all, cleanse all the objects that you will be using during the friendship spell (you can do this using sage smudge or incense, or simply doing a cleansing visualisation).
Begin the spell by casting your circle, and performing any preparatory meditations, as well as calling on your spirit guides to help you during this spell, if you wish.
Begin by lighting the candle. Next, place all the other objects in front of you. Put the carnelian stone in the middle on top of the pouch, and arrange the allspice in a circle around it.
Close your eyes, and visualise yourself surrounded by the kind of friends you want, positive people that you enjoy being around. Make this visualisation as realistic as you can, and focus especially on the feelings of being with your “tribe”, whether that inspires feelings of joy, comfort, fun, inspiration, or a mixture of all of these feelings. Once you can feel that feeling strongly, hold your hands, palms down, over the crystal and spices. Visualise this feeling as a golden light streaming from your heart, through your arms, and out through your palms onto the objects. Visualise the objects being imbued by this golden light until they are pulsating with it.
Now place all the objects inside the pouch and close it tight. Take the candle, and circle it in the air above the friendship pouch clockwise three times, while chanting the following incantation:
True friendships, come to me,
As I will, so mote it be.
The spell is done! Thank your guides, and close your circle.
Now you have a lucky friendship charm which you can carry in your pocket or in your bag, and it will attract the kinds of people you want to be friends with. Make sure to carry this with you when you are out and about in public – even if it’s just going to the shop to buy groceries, as you never know when you’ll get the chance to strike up new friendships!
