The Key to Happiness

From the time the Romanies arrived in Britain in the fifteenth century, they protected themselves with a positive attitude. Whatever wasn’t good wasn’t even worth thinking about, and they focused on their search for happiness and talismans forecasting good luck.

The Romanies believe that it’s extremely luck to find a key. It means that you will soon be opening a door to success in love, marriage, or work, or even something very specific, such as getting a new car. No matter what form happiness is guaranteed.

But the good news is  that you can still harness the good luck of a key without finding one  by taking your own personal key and carrying out the following ritual:

With the key at hand, light a white candle.  On a piece of paper, draw a door that will open to your wish.

Pour some candle wax on the drawing of the door and place the key in the wax, to weld the two together. Let the wax cool. Fold the paper around the key to form a neat envelope or parcel. Generously seal all the edges with more wax from the candle. Blow out the candle.

At night, toss the parcel into a fire, imagining as vividly as possible the door you are passing through. Pour all your energies into the flames and visual your wish being sent out into the universe. The spell has been cast. Don’t dwell on your wish, because such thoughts drag it back to earth and sap its energy. Have faith. Believe in the spell and it may come into being in the strangest of ways!
