Yes, i have also learned to make your own spells. You can use candles, herbs, potions, or just say words. But if you use herbs you can use it for incense or it can be a charm. But if you meditate and create your own love spell your puttin more thought into it. Your tamperin with free-will. There may be reprecussions. So be careful!
Here's one thing you didn't do, detach. Exhaust all emotions in the spell and then detach yourself from the outcome. Like be calm about it and forget about the spell and prevent yourself from thinking about it.
