5 Love Spells from The Path of the Shaman
#1 - Trial by Combat
Make your space sacred using salt, sage, or both. Cut the photo of them in half with the knife or dagger, then in half again. Imagine the target clearly and fully in your head. Visualize them taking off a mask. As you are doing that, place the pieces of the photo in the bowl and set them on fire.
Say the following:
"Let's see through your lies. Let me hear you speak the truth. Reveal yourself unto me. Your intentions made clear, your motives revealed. Are you showing off to bluff? Or are you really what you are? Prove yourself!"
Once you're finished, bury the ashes, and if applicable, near your target's property.

#2 - Devotional Ritual for Sigyn
Begin by setting up an altar dedicated to Sigyn. Place a large bowl in the center of the altar. Put one candle on the left side of this bowl, and another candle on the right side. Light both candles while reciting the following prayer:
"Sigyn, beloved wife of Loki, mother of Narvi and Vali, Lady of the Gentleness, Lady of the Staying Power. I hail you. Grant me Your courage, which is that of an open yet invincible heart. Grant me Your humility, which is that of mindful devotion to Your love. Grant me above all that I may be of service to You, Your husband, Your children, and to all Gods who might have use of me. Hail, Sigyn".
Take a portion of food and drink (ideally a portion of a meal you had intended on eating) and offer it to Sigyn on the altar, while saying "For Your time in the cave, when You starved and went malnourished in duty to love. May it nourish You". Take the bowl in both hands and lift it above your head, "May I hold this bowl in Your stead, Lady. May I take Your place in the cave tonight, for a few brief moments". Hold the bowl above your head for a determined amount of time (as long as you feel right) to symbolize what Sigyn did for Loki.
When finished, snuff out the candles and light an incense. Allow the incense to burn out as an offering. Leave the food on the altar until the following morning.
