Its cuffing season! You all know what that means… It means there’s love in the air! For those of you experiencing a little “cuffing season” fever, I have a little spell for you. I personally am not a fan of love spells potentially manipulating another person, so here is an attraction spell instead to give you a little boost of confidence and extra shine, so let’s get right to it!
What you’ll need:
Two pink candles - for love and romance
Twine/String - a natural bond
Bay leaves - attract lovers and grant wishes
Rosemary/rosemary oil - makes you memorable
Vanilla oil/extract - creates an attraction
Epsom salts - for calming and cleansing for a fresh start
Before you begin, mix some Epsom salts, rosemary, and vanilla together in a container and set aside for a bath after you have completed the spell. I prefer to use rosemary oil for this, but be careful applying essential oils straight to the skin for long periods of time! Bath salts dilute them and make them safer.
Begin with your personal pre-ritual cleansings, meditations, or circle castings. Allow yourself to enter a pleasant state of mind, like a “happy place”. Picture the candles as you and a future partner, but imagine no certain person, only pleasant thoughts regarding a partner. Take your two candles and tie a knot around the one representing yourself and then around the other, leaving twine or string draped between the two. Dress your candle with an oil of your choice or with vanilla. Carry this oil down the twine connecting the two, and then dress your partner’s candle; light your candles. Take three bay leaves for each candle. On your candle’s three, write three “attractive” attributes you wish to have, and on your partner’s three, write three broad personality traits you would like to see in a partner. Burn the bay leaves in their according candles, and then allow the candles to burn out or burn as much as they can safely and snuff out the flame. Complete your ritual by lighting some candles, burning some incense, and taking a nice warm bath with your Epsom mixture while you absorb the qualities of your oils!
One of my favorite scenes on TBBT. I have re-watched it a hundred times. 😉 Sheldon is supposedly prompted by his friends to check on Amy but you could see from the moment he walks in the bedroom he is truly concerned and wants to see her smile. 😮
He was gentle and non defensive. And even when Amy was “okay” to leave the room, he was the one that held her back. He was the one with the idea to proceed. I think he was titillated by the notion and he wanted to “explore” as much as her. I’m sure the thought of being private made him feel safe too. 😚😍
Sheldon really took initiative here. He gently led the “game”. He held the dice, told her what first was to happen.
“I lead you to a secluded area where I attempt to remove your leather armor…”
“I EROTICALLY caress your…”
Let’s give Sheldon some credit. He had some sensual ideas and verbalized them. 💖
If there is an episode that shows how far Sheldon is willing to “stretch” to reach and meet Amy half way, it would be this episode. He really meant it when he said, “I know it may not seem like it to you, but for me, what he have is EXTREMELY intimate.”
Mayim and Jim are geniuses with these scenes and manage to make them sweet and funny at the same time. Their chemistry, timing and delivery is crazy.
And to conclude, us #shamy fans know that other stuff went down before and after “Fourteen!!!”. I’m sure Amy wasn’t the only one thinking about that night afterwards. 😉
Sheldon and Amy deciding to get physical – but in the context of Dungeons and Dragons. It’s a really brilliantly constructed scene where they’re rolling the dice to figure out which article of armor, or clothing, comes off. It’s really an amazing moment and a microcosm of the show. It is the reality of these characters, yet it’s very universal. It’s real to them and what maybe is a small step to other people, is as big of a step to these characters as you can find.
Simon Helberg on his favorite moment of Season 6 (interestingly the only one to pick a moment unrelated to his character. And his character had some amazing scenes this season. I guess he digs the Shamy)
