[This is a spell called "Burying the Hatchet." It is used to end strife
within a family or between friends:]

get a sapling tree... type is not particular to anything but your own
tastes... or rather the tastes of the two people burying the hatchet..

get an old hatchet, some leather straps, *or ribbons*... (the
ribbons/string should be appropriate for each individual who will be
burying the hatchet...if there are witnesses, they don't need to have a
ribbon as this is for those who have "ill" feelings for each other) take
a strand of hair from each person involved in the spell... (including
witnesses) including yourself if you happen to be present... 

dig a deep hole into the ground where you will be planting the tree... 
about 1 1/2 or 2 feet pending on the size of the roots of the young tree...
put the hair at the bottom of the hole... tie the straps/ribbons around
the hatchet, and place into the hole... The people who will be burying
it will have to be the two that have to patch things up...  Essentially,
they must both hold onto the hatchet as it is placed into the bottom of
the hole, and say the following words at the same time: *I'm sorry*...
Or if you want to get mystical... they could each express their desire
to 'bury the hatchet' between them and get on with life...  this can be
done in prayer form or whatever form they feel comfortable in doing
so... but essentially it should be a heartfelt *i'm sorry* that is said
between them...  

then everyone (including witnesses) involved lifts the tree up and places
it into the ground on top of the hatchet... water the tree well throughout
your lives... as it will stand for the strongest and hardest thing that
two people can do... appologise regardless of what happened... 

once the hatchet is buried, it really should never be brought up again in
conversation... no strict law about it, but they've taken the steps to
breaking the hold of their own egos/pride/rightousness... AND if you
want to make it an awesome day... They can be the 'guests' of honour at
a bbq put on by yourself or whoever else wanted to host the 'burying of
the hatchet ritual...

There should be no need to repeat this spell... just go and sit around
the tree and enjoy its shade whenever times get too loaded up with
"egomania / pridemania / rightousness"...  

you can take photos of this ritual to keep as a reminder when things 
get rough again... *If they ever do*...

hope this helps...

1. Get a nice big candle, any decent sized one will do, the
color should probably be whatever your favorite is.

2. Carefully write down your likes and dislikes, your
personality traits and a few sentences that summarize your
personality on some loose paper.

3. Carve what you wrote into the candle, while doing so it
is important to impart a special feeling into what you are

4. Take an empty jar, fill it one third of the way with
salt.  Then place the loose paper with your personality
traits in it.  Seal the jar and place it in a safe place
near your bed or what not.

5. Light the candle at night before you go to sleep (a small
cleansing ritual or silent prayer would help in the
lighting).  Then go to sleep thinking about the candle and
how it burns across the image of your writing.  Think about
how the smoke in some small way is carrying the pattern of
what you've written over your room, throughout your house,
and into the air of the world outside.

6. Now its up to you.  Go out and attempt to be seen (coffee
shops, restaurants, arcades, etc.), you'll find the person
your looking for with an instinctive feel provided by this
ritual.  Although it may be necessary to repeat the ritual
for some time (especially if you are generally considered
shy), just get another candle and open the jar to copy your
sigils again (or you can start from scratch and create new

To cause someone to call you:

In African-American hoodoo, there is a belief that the use
of black candle tobacco (twist tobacco, not flaked) is
efficactious in this regard. Folks may soak it in whiskey
and then sprinkle a bit of the liquid and the tobacco in
their mail box to draw a letter, on their phone to draw a
call, or, i guess, on their computer (carefully!) to draw

To maintain contact at a distance:

Sleeping with a packet of calendula flowers, althaea leaves,
and a few star anise seeds under your pillow is said to draw
communications from a distant person through the medium of
dreams. This means you will dream of them, not that they
will necessarily dream of you. It is recommended as a good
way to ascertain the state of health and well-being of
someone you miss and may be unable to contact directly.

To draw someone to visit:

In hoodoo, a lodestone drawing ritual is the usual method.
Washing your house with Van Van floor wash or Chinese Wash
first is also recommended. For a typical lodestone drawing
ritual, easily adapted to the situation you describe, see
