The idea behind this spell is that by sending happy thoughts out into the world, you will find more happiness in the world. All you need is some bubble mixture and the ability to visualise things that make you happy.
Go outside with your bubble mixture - ideally on a sunny day. Before blowing any bubbles, picture clearly in your head something that makes you feel good - it could be cupcakes and icecream, playful kittens, a rainbow after a storm or walking along the shoreline on a sandy beach - anything that fills you with joy and delight.
Then, imagine you are sending those happy thoughts into the bubbles as you blow them. Do this for as long as you like, with as many joyful images as you can think of. As the bubbles burst, happiness is released into the world, where it will grow.
Some time in the future you will find a big bubble of happiness returned to you as something tangible in your life as a result of this spell. But don't go looking for the results. The secret of finding happiness is that it can often appear when you least expect it.
There is a famous song I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles, and the chorus line goes:
I'm forever blowing bubbles,You might think that the words are rather the opposite of the spell for happiness. That's sort of true - but it is a matter of perspective. The poem suggests that the bubbles of our happy dreams "fade and die"; whereas if you imagine that you are releasing them and sharing them with the world, then they don't die at all, but live and grow. And by desperately "looking everywhere" for fortune, it is easy to overlook or take for granted the simple pleasures of life that are present all around us, that can brighten our days and make the world a more magical place.
Pretty bubbles in the air,
They fly so high,
Nearly reach the sky,
Then like my dreams,
They fade and die.
Fortune's always hiding,
I've looked everywhere,
I'm forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air
