Draw a quick sketch of the item you're trying to locate. Carve a taper candle with a few words describing yourself. Ground and center, then place the candle in the center of your altar, and anoint it from top to bottom, to pull energy in. Light the candle, envisioning it as your own inner light. Place the sketch a foot or so away from the candle on your altar. Then, as you move the sketch a little closer to the candle, say:
"My ____ is coming to me now."
Repeat this spell each night for three nights, moving the sketch closer each time, with it touching the candle on the last night. Pay close attention to any dreams or chance conversations that might give you clues to the location of the item.
