Love is one move away with Love Spells,
One of many success stories
Sophia was thirty when a crisis blew her life, hopes and dreams out of the water, leaving her shattered and despairing. Her father died suddenly, and she lost her job due to the recession, all of which left her feeling sad and unable to cope with life. Naturally her mood had a big impact on her long term relationship with her partner, a graphic artist, Jeff. They started to quarrel daily and soon they had a bigger row than ever and Jeff walked out, leaving Sophia more distraught then ever.
"I couldn't cope with so much loss at one time, stress levels were too high, I think I expected too much from Jeff too, you know expected him to make me feel better when no-one could, that somehow his love should have comforted me when it didn't, I needed my Dad and my job," she explained. So Sophia, feeling totally lost had a love spell performed to bring Jeff back into her life. The couple hadn't spoken since Jeff walked out and Sophia was left in the terrible situation of not knowing if she would ever see or hear from him again. "Jeff always believed in living a paired down life, not collecting 'things,' always ready to travel and enjoy life 'lighter' so, it wasn't even as though he'd come back for his things." Seven weeks had passed and Sophia had waited hoping to hear from him, but Jeff made no attempt to contact Sophia as she then told Carmen, "He just disappeared, as if he'd never been, except the bathroom stayed cleaner for longer. Would you believe it, I even missed his mess and the scummy ring he left around the bath."
'"I began to realise that I'd leaned on Jeff too much throughout our relationship, I'd looked to him to meet all my emotional needs, as if anyone can do that all the time. So I felt doubly bereft when he left me. I felt really uncomfortable with the realisation that I must've become burdensome to him, like a baby bird always crying out for more. You know it was a shock because I'd always thought of myself as this independent career woman, my own money, successful and then I realise I'd clung to him and demanded love and attention and support constantly, the wonder is I got it for so long. Poor guy, who could keep that up all the time and then the added pressure when my Dad passed and my income disappeared but my shopping habits remained."
Sophia began to see to her horror that she had partly been responsible for Jeff's leaving her, "I remember chiding him for not loving me enough, when he'd never shown me anything but love and support, I suppose he felt he couldn't give anymore than he had done and it would never be enough, that he could never give enough to satisfy me, so he went."
Carmen had asked her in the beginning how long they had struggled with problems in the relationship and Sophia had then seen for the first time that there had been underlying problems from the start, problems which Sophia had never recognised before. "Despite my complaints to him, I'd been happy with Jeff, so it hadn't occurred to me that my behaviour hadn't been the most conducive to making him happy! This worried me, that my love spell would have a harder time because the problem was a longstanding one."
Carmen counselled her to get on with her life and expect Jeff to return but to live day to day, not waiting, but knowing he would come back. After two months Sophia went for an interview for a new job in a new town thirty miles from her home, "It was really hard to make myself go for through the interview, I was so depressed by my situation on all fronts, but Carmen told me to get on with life and make fresh starts to help my love spell, so I tried."
Two weeks later Sophia was offered the new job and accepted, sold her flat below asking price to get a quick sale and relocated. "But I made sure I left a forwarding address with the new householders. I'd this fantasy that Jeff would go to the flat with bunch of flowers and an engagement ring, looking to get me back and waiting to throw his arms around me and smother me with kisses and then he'd find me gone and would break down, sobbing, vowing to find me! I've never told anyone except Carmen that before, it sounds silly but. I fantasised about that daily."
Another month saw Sophia busy in her new management post, settling in and making friends with new colleagues. "It's funny because Jeff had been on my mind night and day and then just when something else began to take over my thoughts, that's when the phone rang. An old neighbour and friend of mind, Seana rang, saying Jeff had been to the flat and asked what had happened, no more than that, just 'what had happened?' It had been my flat. I didn't know what to think, had my love spell brought me my results and because I hadn't been there I'd ruined everything. That night I sped off an email to Carmen and asked, what do I do now? I was near hysterical, I didn't know what to think. Seana had said he looked OK and hadn't said what he wanted just asked when I'd gone, no more than that."
Sophia now found it hard to concentrate at work, "I was going nuts, Carmen reassured me it would all be all right but I couldn't see how! My friend was supposed to give Jeff my new address and phone number, but she hadn't! He hadn't asked, which was painful, I was hurt by the thought that maybe he didn't care. Then it was like a kick to realise - he still had my mobile number and email address, I was confused. I just kept asking myself 'What did he want, why had he gone around there? What was going on with my love spell?
The following Saturday Sophia had got up late, worse for wear from worrying all night. She hadn't taken her make-up off from the day before, mascara smeared all over her face, she hadn't brushed her hair and was wearing some old, comfy night clothes she kept for worst when no-one would see them. Just as she was about to start a day of depression and comfort eating, there was a knock at her front door. Sophia was expecting a parcel so she opened the door for the postman when a familiar voice asked, "I need a cuppa now, the traffic was hell," it was her old friend Seana.
As Seana bustled around making hot mugs of tea, she insisted Sophia should have a shower - now! Sophia looked at her as though she was mad, so Seana explained that someone was waiting downstairs to see Sophia. Sophia's heart missed a beat - who? Who was waiting? Seana told her not to ask questions but get ready and make herself look good pronto. With a feeling of brewing expectation Sophia showered and changed and was then led to the block of flat's communal gardens where a familiar figure waited on a bench. The figure stood up as Sophia approached. Sophia remembers, " I didn't know what to say or expect so I just blurted out, 'why didn't you come by yourself?'
"It was Jeff! He told me he hadn't wanted to scare me off, that I might see him only with a buffer. We sat down on that damp old bench, it was starting to spit, you know awful weather, windy too, but I didn't notice I couldn't take my eyes off Jeff. We talked and he told me that he had got the impression that I'd wanted to forget him, that that's why I'd moved away so he couldn't find me and he thought I'd feel less intimidated if he came with Seana. He never said he was sorry for leaving, he never said anything about it. He just looked into my eyes and said, 'How's my special girl?' I could've cried but I was too surprised and then the rain got so heavy we went indoors to my flat and he asked if I'd any food in for dinner. All three of us ate his 'special', bangers and mash; he never left."
"I've since learnt that three weeks before he came with Seana he'd visited my old flat, oddly to pick up his guitar which he'd never played or cared about but had this sudden uncharacteristic yen for and saw through the big picture windows the flat had changed, with strangers living there and he'd despaired. And it was then it struck him that he loved me, just then, when he felt he'd lost me forever his feelings for me flooded him. He left, and later remembered I was friends with Seana and gone to see her, but didn't know what to say, felt awkward and pride kicked in, had left quickly and then returned again to demand she tell him where I was which of course she did."
"I'd say I've learnt to think of Jeff's feelings, he may be a man but he still has them and to consider his happiness as much as mine. I've also learnt that love spells do work and that I'm very grateful to them that I've had this second chance, and very grateful to Carmen too! I love Jeff and he's always going to know how loved he is and how much I appreciate all he does for me. My dream came true almost exactly as I'd dreamt it, Carmen said, it would have helped make it happen too. It was my own love spell."
"I did ask Jeff once what made him come back and he said love, it just wouldn't stop tugging at him once he thought he'd lost me, he tried to block me out of his mind, in that way that men can but love wouldn't let him. As Carmen said, love spells are fuelled by love, so Jeff was right."
