This is called "feeding the mojo," and the use of the word "feed" is, of course an indicative link to African magico-religious thought, from whence this custom derives.
Lodestones are also "fed" in hoodoo -- with magnetic sand. In European -- especially Italian -- folk magic, urine is used in women's coffee and tea love magic spells, but only as a quick substitute for the REALLY heavy item, menstrual blood.
No ritual, prayer, or invocation is necesary; you simply add some menstrual blood, vaginal fluids, or urine to his coffee or tea. The idea is to get one's scent into the beloved's sphere of consciousness. This is nothing more or less than pheromone-magic, and as such it partakes of biology as much as it does of occultism.
My Sicilian grandmother believed in its efficacy completely. I always took it as his quirky sense of humor, and never followed it to the next conclusion that you could use menstrual blood in love spells. But on hindsight this seemed to be a very powerful thing to him as he swore he would never do it. To him it had to do with giving up his free choice to be with someone and somehow being under their power or control. But it was long ago and I can't recall the damn title.
The novel was set during colonial times USA and the protaganist was a black slave woman. In the opening scene she was following a bunch of other people, moving the master's belongings somewhere or other. Then there was a slightly erotic description of her crouching and peeing in the street. Her soon-to-be lover who was half native american was much turned on by this Maybe someone recalls the novel?
It is likely a classic or minor classic. I just took it one step further and added the idea of urinating in the beloved's footprint. That IMO is just good magick. You need some sort of connection to make it work and a fooprint IMO is an excellent connection. In thistime and place its not really practical though as people leave so few bare footprints. I also know someone who did the menstrual blood in her "target's" coffee.
I've heard about this from several italian-american friends over the years so it must be widely known. For instance, i have used it to dress lodestrones in spells for sexual attraction and bonding.
In the African-American hoodoo tradition, as well as in Sicilian folk-magic, menstrual blood served to a man in his coffee or tea is a sovreign recipe for capturing his sexual attention.
I have done this often, with uniformly good results. I have directly fed gobbets of menstruum to my lover, from my fingers, as one might feed a pet. This was done to bind him, but to avoid the sneakiness of slipping it into his drinks -- i want him to KNOW how much i want him to be mine, and to know that i am working the spell on him right out in the open.
As the old slogan for the Steak-and-Shake drive-in chain reads: One karezza writer, John William Lloyd, who advocated abstinence from orgasm, declared that during "the woman's time of great desire" e. So Lloydrecognized the menstrual period as qualitatively different from the rest of the woman's cycle, in terms of the performance of a spiritual sex act.
As a practitioner of karezza, i find Lloyd's advice valuable and am always glad when my partner follows it. I am focussed on sexual desire the first day of my period, and since i worship in a sexual-spiritual way, the lines of communication are definitely open!
The frankest discussions of the uses of menstrual blood in magic will be found in ethnological treatises on folk-magic; the "ceremonial high magickians" of the late Victoriaan era including Aleister Crowley and his cohorts were too prudish to deal with this matter as anything other than an antinomian and rule-breaking rite.
They found it exhilerating in proportion to the degree to which they judged it to be daring, provocative, and naughty. In folk-magic, menstrual blood is a straightforward tool of spell-casting. If you study folk-magic you will quickly learn that in virtually every culture there are spells that make use of ALL of our bodily effluvia and detritus, including the amniotic sac caul of a baby, spit, semen, tears, urine, feces, head hair, pubic hair, and nail clippings.
In the light of the universality of bodily effluvia and detritus as tools of magic, the singling out of menstrual blood is more rationally approached on the basis of its intended EFFECT generally spells of sex and love than on the basis of its ORIGIN female bodies.
There is no question that menstrual blood is "female" and has a role in goddess centered worship, but it is only one of a panoply of human bodily effluvia and detritus that is given a religio-mystical role in magic.
Pour some wine in the bowls. Each person start warming their bowl of wine over a candle. Add a pinch of cinnamon. Swirl the bowls to mix cinnamon while finishing the warming. Each person breathe into both bowls.
Recite the following toast: Do what comes naturally. If you wish to attract someone, observe your own behavior and be careful not to fidgit, sway, or slouch. Don't mutter, interrupt, or mumble. Confidence is subconsiously monitored by potential mates. Be aware of your own nervousness. Try to feel it as a wall between yourself and the person you wish to attract.
Feel uneasy, and then banish that feeling by relaxing into a sense of comfortableness. Worry and discomfort will always work against you. Say to yourself that you are going to enjoy yourself wherever you are and lose that sense of urgency. People who see you in a relaxed pose want to be around you because somehow they think that you will relax them too. One way to help someone relax is to refrain from propositions, expectations, and enuendos. Never flood someone with your knowledge.
Simply accept them for who they are and save your judgements and advice for yourself. Listen to them and love them. Lastly, start spending more time brushing your teeth and grooming yourself.
Image really does matter. Eat better, exercise more, and read something. Take the time to iron your clothing. The three most attractive qualities in a person are; confidence, cleanliness, and a very healthy constitution Forget the shape of your body and face. If you have the three qualities above, you can attract anyone. Put the energy from this vision into the candle. Then say out loud, We will always love each other. May the Goddess and God grant this for the good of all When problems arise in your relationship or you need self-confidence, take out the candle on a Friday during a waxing moon.
Anoint it with love oil Cabot doesn't specify a particular mix, so I guess it's up to the individual's discretion. Put some oil on your index finger, and beginning in the middle of the candle, run your finger to the wick end.
Then repeat, rubbing the oil down to the bottom of the candle. Light the candle and let it burn down completely in a safe place and go out. The trick will be to summon up the appropriate feelings of love if you're not in a particularly loving kind of mood. Good luck to all who try it! In a place that is comfortable for sitting a while, and fire safe, place the mirror with a candle on each side.
Now, sit down in front of the mirror, gaze at your reflection. Sit comfortably, and relaxed. Notice all your good qualities Tell yourself how wonderful you are It may not be as easy as it sounds!
Now comes the really hard part Say these words or whatever suits YOU! I am beautiful or handsome on the outside I am wonderful within I am special unto myself, So let the love come in! Negative thoughts, they vanish I now toss them out Negative feelings, be banished, To let my love shine out! Repeat this at least 5 times per sitting. It is an insult, to the air and fire elements. Use a snuffer or wet your fingers, and pinch them out. As you get more used to doing this spell, you may repeat these words, or any words that YOU chose spells are great, when made personal Also -- to make an attraction charm to wear, simply find a chain with a pendant that suits you, and drape it over the mirror while doing your spell, or wear it so it is in sight as you do your spell.
The charm gains strength as you continue to work the spell.
