I often get asked how to use magic to get ahead in one's career. My first questions back are always: Have you earned it? What have you done to work toward it normally? I am a big subscriber to the belief that if you want to succeed at anything, exhaust your normal options first. One should never look to magic as a 'normal' solution to things that you can do on your own. That said, if you are working hard to prove yourself, but maybe the competition is fierce in your workplace, here are a couple ideas to help give you an edge:
Aromatherapy Works.Whether it is psychological or magical, the fact is that certain scents evoke certain reactions from people. In this scenario, you want a smell that will boost your confidence as you pursue your goal, as well as make others take notice of you in a way that furthers this end. I would suggest smells like Bay, Bayberry, Clove, Lemon, or Cinnamon (though take care never to apply Cinnamon directly to the skin!). You could:
- Mix and match these to your liking and wear them as a perfume.
- Dab some of your oil mixture onto your shirt.
- Scent a resumé or a contract proposal with it by lightly tracing it along the edges.
Basic Candle Spell to Get Ahead at Work.This is one of the simplest spells available. You will need:
- A green or gold candle (or any old candle!)
- One of the oils above.
