Let’s Talk Witch – Working Your Own Spells
While using spells made by other people can be just as effective, writing your own spells is not that difficult at all. In fact, in some cases, it is more than encouraged. Another person’s work will not resonate with you as much as your own words will. Even when working with a traditional spell, making modifications to the words to suit your specific goal can enhance the results.
Learning how to write original spells is important to you as a modern practitioner especially in times when the exact kind of spell that you are searching for cannot be found in a book.
Work a vague spell and you are likely to get a vague result. With the exception of a few special cases, the first secret to writing an effective spell is to be as specific as possible. This entails knowing exactly what you want. Try not to send mixed signals to the universe because if you do, it is likely to come back to you. This is why, as previously mentioned, meditation is often a prerequisite prior to dealing with spells.
You should take your time in formulating the words. Remember that ambiguous wording can be dangerous. Also, be careful what you ask for because, well, you know the rest…
Symbolism plays a crucial role in magick spell workings. The second thing to consider when writing an original magick spell is whether you need certain tools to accompany it. The commonly used tools for spells include crystals, candles, robes, incense and herbs. While these items may not possess magick by themselves, they help in building the atmosphere. Remember to cleanse and consecrate these objects before using them.
The third ingredient to working a spell is the timing. You must determine whether the moon phase is a vital factor to your spell. Performing a spell under the right moon phase is likely to increase its effectiveness. Keep in mind that spells used to attract things and spells for abundance are best performed under a waxing moon.
A full moon provides the highest energy, followed by the new moon. Spells used to send things away are performed under a waning moon. If a spell needs to be performed during a specific time of the day or for several successive nights or days, follow it conscientiously.
A magick spell is more effective when you keep them in tune with the seasons. For example, you can do spells used to start things during the planting season and do spells used for obtaining things during harvest season.
Write down your magick spell on paper. The written word, in itself, is magick. While you write, you are transferring your energy into your words. Writing by hand also enables you to enter a different state of consciousness.
If a spell has not worked within an entire lunar month, chances are you need to rework the wording or the procedure.
Finally, the most important rule: Believe in your spell. Working a spell, no matter how wonderfully worded, without believing in it will result to failure. You should never attempt to cast a spell without sufficient faith in magick because doing so is to render yourself vulnerable to negative forces.
