Gaining access is always an issue in spellcraft. Doorknobs often provide an innocuous and subtle way to influence another person. Doorknobs can also be used in personal rituals to open metaphorical doors. Rub a small dab of coconut oil into a doorknob and as you turn it, make a wish concerning something or someone you wish to access. Carry a doorknob with you when you feel that too many doors are closed in your life. Continue to carry until you feel things opening up.
