Communication Spell

Write in cursive your name and the name of the target in a circle, without lifting your pen, such that the two names are joined together. (You can go back and cross the t’s or dot the i’s .) Put the paper into a jar with 3 oz. of whiskey along with 3 oz. of tobacco water, 3 pennies, three drops of Mercury Oil (planetary oil), and let it sit for 7 days. When the mixture is ready, spray it on a yellow 7 day knob candle while saying “Name of person, you will contact (talk to, communicate with, write, call, etc) me.” Burn one knob each day, and tell the candle each day that you want a particular person to communicate with you.
