How to Cast a Spell
Contrary to many people’s beliefs, spell casting is not strictly
for witches with broomsticks and sorcerers with magical potions.
Anyone who has an open mind and access to a quiet space can perform
a spell, be it at home or in the great outdoors. However, to ensure
an effective spell, follow the few simple steps below in order to
prepare your mind and your space.
your spell: You will need to decide what exactly it is
that you want to transpire as a result of your spell. Be clear and
concise regarding your goals; do not allow yourself to be vague
or equivocal about what you want
2. Create a space: Possibly, the most important
step in casting a spell is to find a quiet space or room that will
allow you roughly 30 minutes of uninterrupted time to meditate and
to channel your energies into the spell you are about to create.
Concentration and focus are a fundamental rule in learning how to
cast a spell.
3. Gather your tools: Foods are not a requirement
for spell casting, but many people use them as they greatly aide
in concentration and meditation. You can center all of your energy
on any of the magical tools listed below:
- soft music
Without tools, you have nothing to focus on but your thoughts,
and let’s face it, full control over our thoughts is next
to impossible. Noise, stress, and worries from our everyday life
often pop into our heads at any given moment. So, unless you are
highly advanced in spell crafting (and even then, many of the most
adept practitioners still use tools) magical tools are highly recommended.
4. Read the Directions: After accomplishing the
previous steps, read and re-read the directions to your spell. Accuracy
and meticulousness are a must when learning how to cast a spell.
If the spell calls for the task to be performed at night on a full
moon, make sure you do it at night on a full moon as this is the
specific required energy for that particular spell. And, if the
spell requires that you be outside, then be outside. Some require
to be cast in a wooded area at dawn or in the evening; if this is
not a possibility, then your backyard is acceptable. The key is
to follow the recipes as closely as you can.
After carefully following the directions,
if your spell still seems unsuccessful,
try again. Maybe your focus was not as
in tune as you thought, or maybe there
is an underlying stress that you have
been trying to alleviate. If this is the
case, then serious meditation prior to
the spell might prove beneficial in diminishing
toxic thoughts. Learning how to cast a
spell is a finely-tuned art; the more
you practise, the more effective you will
become in fulfilling your wishes.
