Let’s Talk Witch – Working Your Own Spells

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.

WOTC Extra – Spells Create Change That You Can’t Always See

Spells Create Change That You Can’t Always See

 

When you think about witches casting spell you probably see an image in your mind of black clad women stirring a steaming large black pot over a fire. Or maybe you think of a witch waving a wand and turning a prince into a frog, or vice versa. But that’s Disney magic. Real magic is often very subtle and hard to detect. So you have to be on the lookout for small changes after you cast a spell.

When you cast a spell you are directing energy that will create change like the ripples in a pond. The changes that are created often won’t be obvious or dramatic. But the spells that you cast will result in events unfolding to give you the opportunity to make huge changes in your life. You have to be paying attention and you have to seize the opportunities.

Often people who are new to Wicca will think that a spell they cast didn’t work because they won’t be looking for the signs that it did work. For example if you cast a spell to get a new job you probably will not get a call out of the blue from the company you have been dying to work for. But, you might find yourself talking to a stranger at a party or on the train who works at that company and can recommend you for a job to HR department. Or if you want to move up at your current company a job might open up that would be perfect for you.

If you cast a spell for more money a stack of money won’t just appear, and the winning lottery numbers probably won’t either. But you might find a unique opportunity for a part time income like teaching something that you love. Be ready for all the opportunities that spells will create for you.

Write Your Own Spells

 

When you are just starting to develop your magical practice you might want to use generic spells to get started. But you should write your own spells as soon as possible. When you are writing your own spells you are putting your energy into the words and the spell will be more powerful because it’s personal to you and it has your energy in it. Here are some tips for writing spells:

Don’t get caught up in the language – Spells don’t have to rhyme, although they can if you want them to. They don’t have to be full of huge important words either. Don’t worry about making it sound poetic or flowery. As long as it comes from your heart that is all that matters.

State your intention clearly – Be very clear about what you are asking for. If you are writing a spell for love then specify what kind of love you want such as a long term romance, a marriage, a life-partner, or a quick but fun fling. If you are writing a spell for better health state clearly the problems that need to be changed like you want to have more energy or you want to be slim again.

Follow the format – Each spell should have the same basic format. The spell should start with a blessing or invocation of the spirits. Then you should state what you want. Then make a small offering and give thanks. Spells don’t have to be long but they should all include your thanks at the end.

Write the spell down – Keep your spells in case you need them again. You can always change them or add on to them later if you find that the spell isn’t as effective as you want. Eventually you will create your own Book of Shadows to hold all your personal spells.

Let’s Talk Witch – Spells Are Essential

Celtic Goddess

Spells Are Essential

 

A lot of people get scared by the idea of casting a spell, but really a spell is just like a prayer to a Wiccan. Instead of praying to a deity to make something happen a witch uses a spell to focus all the energy around them and make things happen. Spells can be just as powerful as prayers, and really are a type of prayer if you think about it.

Spells can be created for just about any purpose. Just don’t use spells to hurt or manipulate others. A spell can be a simple two sentence statement or can be a multiple paragraph speech. As long as the Wiccan performing the spell does it with good intentions and clear direction a spell can be powerful even when it’s short. In fact sometimes the shortest spells can be the most powerful, if there is a lot of focus behind them.

Saying spells out loud is a good way to focus on what you are doing and what you want to happen as a result. By speaking the words out loud you are announcing what you want to the Universe and putting all your energy out into the world. The ripple effects from that are what make the spell effective.

If necessary you can mutter the words under your breath but spells are better if you can announce them clearly in a powerful tone of voice. Performing spells with others will increase the amount of energy behind the spell and make it even more effective, so if you are casting a spell for something very important it is a good idea to get some of your Wiccan friends together to perform the spell with you.

Let’s Talk Witch – Adapting A Spell for Your Own Needs

Adapting A Spell for Your Own Needs

 

Today you will find many books on spellcraft that contain instructions for casting spells. You can also purchase ready-made kits that include all the ingredients necessary for a spell. Nonetheless, if those instructions or ingredients don’t make sense to you or break your personal ethics, the spell will not work.

The best spells are those you create yourself or adapt to suit your own purpose. The process of collecting ingredients, preparing them, and designing the steps of your spell focuses your mind on your intention and adds energy to the spell. Sometimes you must adapt a tried and true spell because you can’t get the designated components. For example, if you lived in New England and used ash leaves or bark in protection spells but then moved to Texas, you would not be able to find such plant life; you could then compensate by substituting another ingredient, such as basil.

With the pervious example in mind, it’s easy to see that there will be many times when a Witch or Wiccan will want to adapt a spell or devise oone of her own. How do you begin the process? Adapting a spell is far easier than creating one, so let’s start there. When a Witch examines a spell, she looks for continuity and comprehensiveness.
Do the spell target your goal through its words, actions and components?

Does it do so on a multisensual level (involving your hearing, sight, touch, taste, and smell)?

Does every part of the spell make sense and excite your higher sentiments?

If the answer to any of these questions is no, try to find a substitute. To illustrate, many old love spells call for blood as components. But modern awareness of disease (or squeamishness) might make blood inappropriate. Instead a witch could use red wine. The red juice from crushed raspberries, strawberries, or passion fruit (fruit associated with love) would also work well. In this manner, she can still follow the basic spell while replying on components that are safe and support her ethics.

Choosing your own ingredients when adapt a spell, rather than following a prescribed formulas allows you to fine-tune a spell to your specific needs. Once you understand the basic natures and symbolism of various components, you can mix and match them to create exactly the right combination of energies.

WOTC Extra – Magic Tools Make Spells More Effective

Magic Tools Make Spells More Effective

 

True magic is all based on energy, so technically it can be done without any tools at all. But it is really only very skilled and experienced witches who can perform magic without any tools. Tools are very useful, especially for beginners, because they make it much easier to focus your energy and visualize parts of the spell.

There are some basic tools that every witch should have. You don’t need to buy all of these at once. Look in thrift shops, garage sales, and other out of the way places and buy tools that speak to you. Or, make your own. It’s better to wait and find the perfect tools than it is to buy something off the shelf. The tools that you should have to perform spells include:

Cauldron – this is usually a small iron pot that you can use to mix herbs or place burning items.

Wand – Wands are used for summoning the spirits of the Air and focusing energy. Natural wands made from tree branches are the best.

Incense burner – Incense is a very important part of spellcasting. Even a cheap basic incense burner will do the job but you might want to invest in a nice brass or pottery incense burner down the line.

Chalice- Your chalice can be glass, ceramic, or metallic. Most people use a glass chalice. You can even just use a special piece of glassware. Some people prefer to use ornate carved chalices that are available in Wiccan supply stores.

Altar Cloth – An altar cloth can be any piece of cloth, although most witches prefer pure cotton or silk material. Natural materials are the best to use. An altar cloth is a special cloth only used for spellwork. It can transform any flat surface into a magical surface. You may want to personalize your cloth with embroidery or embellishments.

When you are not using your magical tools they can sit on your altar or you can wrap them in your altar cloth and store them out of sight. This is a good option if you live with other people who don’t know about your Wiccan practices.
