Hi,

I am new to this forum.  Recently I lost something that meant the world to me.  This item was a tibetan crystal (wrapped in a magnet) given to me by my mother (who died two years ago).  The crystal seems to just have disappeared!  We have been searching for days and it is just gone.  I am heartbroken.

I will in the coming weeks try casting finding spells. My background has not been in this type of magic.  I have studied the tarot for years for personal guidance and growth. 

Do you all have any other suggestions for me to try and find my lost treasure?  Any advice is appreciated!

Thank you,
peaceful

Welcome to The Cauldron!  Have you tried any of the Lost Item Spells in The Cauldron's Spell Grimoire. All three are easy to do have often successful, even for beginners. They don't always work as well if the item was deliberately taken/hidden.

Welcome to The Cauldron! Have you thought about meditating on it and asking it where it is?

First off.... Welcome to The Cauldron!

As to your question... have you tried quietly asking the crystal to come home?  May sound strange to some (though less here than elsewhere), but I've sometimes had success by just sitting down, calming down, thinking about the missing item and asking for it to come back.  With me it seems the harder I look for something, the less likely I am to find it.

Hope it returns.

Hailsa!

Hi,

I am new to this forum.  Recently I lost something that meant the world to me. 

Hi.  I am new here, too.  I dearly hope you find your crystal.  The suggestions here all echo the thoughts I had, so I've nothing new to offer except my good thoughts for it's return.

Peaceful's treasure is missing, where can it be? May it no longer be hidded.
A treasure important to the heart, may it be found.

May I ask, why do I see black velvet (or material like)?
Perhaps a pouch you keep it in. *though sits on it seems more right*
Red string?

I do hope it turns up Peaceful.

I have heard that you can find misplaced objects by using a pendulum and sort of playing hot and cold with it. The more the pendulum swings the closer you are supposed to be to the objectís location. Iíve never tried it myself but the principle seems sound.

I will in the coming weeks try casting finding spells. My background has not been in this type of magic.  I have studied the tarot for years for personal guidance and growth.

My advice would be to use the tool you know.  I'm not really in the habit of handing out spells or spreads willy-nilly, but you asked, so:

My personal tarot finding spell

First, choose a card in one of your decks that can represent the lost item.  For a crystal, maybe the Sun or the Moon?  or if you have a deck which features crystals, one of those.

Hold the card while thinking of your crystal.  Try to imprint its image on the card, creating a connection between the card and the object it represents (btw, it is very difficult to 'undo' this, so that card will foreverafter make you think of your crystal - it shouldn't hurt your readings)

Put the card back into the deck and shuffle with the question 'where is my crystal?' or 'what happened to my crystal' in your mind.  If you use written significators, write the question down and read as you shuffle.  Actually, use whatever method works for you, since you are accustomed to reading.

I use 13s for personal readings, but you can use whatever number you find significant.  When the deck is shuffled, start turning cards over.  When you reach 13, if your 'crystal card' has not turned up set those aside and start again.

When your card does show up, finish the 13 and set the rest of the deck aside.  At this point you can use the entire 13 or you can reshuffle and lay out until you have a more manageable number. (or just start out with 5 or 7 to a stack if that is easier)

Interpret the cards in your final stack strictly in regards to your missing crystal - suit, pip, court card - they will be clues for what is around your crystal, who might have some information (they saw it in the laundry hamper or the junk drawer but never thought to mention it, etc.) or even how long it intends to stay missing.

I once did this for something and was told unmistakeably that it had been stolen.  Some might consider what I did to be unethical, but I found it and stole it back. Smiley  Other times I have been directed to look outside, or near water (hubby's watch was behind the toilet for some reason) or to 'ask my mother'.

Results vary.  Your mileage may too.

This may seem like a strange idea as it is not likely part of your current belief system, but you might try praying to Saint Anthony.  Many people have asked him to find many things over the years, so he has lots of experience. 

Another suggestion I have is asking your house spirits.  I don't know if you have any, but if you do ask them to find the object.  Offer a shot or a bit of cake if they help you.  DO NOT give them what was offered unless the object turns up.
