Flowers
 
Flowers are great when there is a lot of emotion involved, especially love,
naturally. They are moderately easy to use, and most are available at any
flower shop. The more flowers you have, the more effective the spell will be.
 
Air: Visualize the flower encompassing you. Or write your wish on a piece of
paper and place it under the vase containing the flower until it blooms. To
answer a question, place it beside your bed for a revealing dream.
 
Fire: Wear or burn the essence of the flower while speaking your will. Or burn
a candle beside the flower until it opens.
 
Water: Throw the flower in a body of water and speak your will. Or soak the
petals in water all night under a full moon and drink it while calling the
powers.
 
Earth: Surround yourself with flowers, or plant it's seed while concentrating
on your intend (obviously this is a long term spell).
 
Here is a list of helpful flowers:
 
Water Lily: Relieves emotional pain.
 
Daisy: Simplicity, clarity, playfulness.

Cornflower: Abundance, fertility.
