How To Cast a Spell
Of course there are as many ways to perform magic as there are people doing it. This is my own personal opinion and preference. There are no rights and wrongs in magic, so do what feels right for you. Magic should not be performed for fun or to fulfill wishes. It should be performed to improve your life and the lives of those you love by solving needs. Enough chit-chat, right? Let's move some energy!
A simple and easy guide to
creating magick for beginners.
First, KNOW in your mind YOU HAVE THE POWER WITHIN YOU to achieve this goal -- Think of Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz.
As you gather all the supplies needed for the spell such as candles, stones, incense and oils, visualize your goal. I could talk about this subject for days, but for the beginner I will keep it simple. Take deep breaths and relax with no distractions. SEE THE GOAL IN YOUR MIND; play it like a movie in your head.
For instance, perhaps you have a bill to pay. See yourself writing the check for the amount due and filling out the bill, then mailing it. It is paid in full! Imagine this scenario over and over, KNOWING you have the power within you to make this happen.
Or, say you gained a few pounds over the holidays and you want to lose weight. SEE yourself as you would LIKE to be. Close your eyes and in your mind start at your head, seeing how you WILL look when the goal is achieved. Let your eyes travel down your body inch by inch SEEING the NEW YOU!
Touch the objects you will be using as you visualize, releasing energy into the items. Feel the muscles in your body flexing as you work, lighting candles, incense and such, all the while still visualizing. Spells usually involve a chant or prayer of some sort (all to help with staying focused on the goal). Follow the directions for the spell you are casting. (See examples below).
See the goal and know that energies are moving. Continue this as long as you can, then relax.
I believe in the theory of cast it, and then forget it. This simply means, give the spell all you've got when you perform it, and then go on with life. Don't sit around waiting for something mysterious to fall out of the sky; begin taking physical steps to achieve the goal also. You may want to perform the spell daily until the goal is achieved. We all have the power to make positive changes in our lives if we will only ALLOW it to happen. Most of all, have fun!
Love Spell: Attract A Mate
Attract the LOVE of your life with this simple yet powerful spell. You will need a sampler size of your favorite scent and a pink candle. First carve a heart in your candle with a tack or toothpick. Light the candle in a window where it will receive moonlight (the light of the full moon is best). Put the scent container in front of the candle and say, "Venus, grant me the love that I lack; through this scent, my mate attract!" Let the candle burn out naturally, then carry the scent with you, spraying on a little whenever you are out or may be meeting people. Increase the power of the magic by repeating the invocation as you put on the scent.
To Get a Lover To Call
This spell is best begun when the moon is waxing, but if you cannot wait that long, go ahead and do it. Take a photo of your lover and a photo of yourself. Using a paper clip, hook the photos together so that the faces are on top of each other. The idea is that the person cannot see past your face. Take the photos and place them at the bottom of your underwear drawer. The person should soon write, call, or reappear.
Money Spell: Attract Prosperity
The following is said while making nine knots in green, 13-inch silk cord or ribbon:
By knot of one, my spell's begun.
By knot of two, plenty fruitful work to do.
By knot of three, money comes to me.
By knot of four, opportunity knocks at my door.
By knot of five, my business thrives.
By knot of six, this spell is fixed.
By knot of seven, success is given.
By knot of eight, increase is great.
By knot of nine, these things are mine.
This classic prosperity oil has been used for at least 100 years. It is best made on a Thursday and is believed to be most effective if allowed to sit for three weeks after mixing. A small green piece of fabric may be anointed with the oil and carried in the purse, or the oil may be worn as a perfume. Omit the base oil if you wish to use with an aromatherapy oil warmer.
- One part basil powder
- One part spearmint essential oil
- One quarter part cinnamon essence
- Six parts base oil (virgin olive, sunflower, or light mineral)
Mix all ingredients carefully and put into a dark glass bottle. Allow it to sit for at least three weeks then strain through a cheesecloth or muslin to remove the basil powder residue. Keep a small coin in the bottle and keep away from direct sunlight.
