One of the most exciting parts about witchcraft is knowing how to make your own magick spells.
Knowing how to make your own magick spells can be a personal and fulfilling experience, as it allows you to tailor the spell to your specific intentions and beliefs. It also allows you to connect with your intention on a deeper level and create a unique ritual that has special meaning to you. Additionally, creating your own spells can lead to a greater understanding of the principles and practices of magic, and can help to build your confidence and competence as a practitioner.
However, it’s important to keep in mind that spellwork is a complex and nuanced practice that requires a strong understanding of the principles of magic, as well as an awareness of the ethical considerations involved. If you are new to spell work or are unsure of your abilities, it may be helpful to start with established spells or to seek guidance from an experienced practitioner.
How to create your own magick spells
Preparation – before you start casting your own magick spells
- Start with a clear intention
Before you begin writing your spell, take some time to think about what you want to achieve. Be specific and clear about your intention, as this will help to focus your energy and make your spell more effective.
- Choose appropriate materials by matching their correspondences with your intentions
Select items that align with your intention, such as candles, crystals, herbs, deities, etc. They can help to increase the energy and power of your spell. For example, if you cast a spell for love, you might use correspondences such as rose petals, rose oil, and a pink candle and call upon Aphrodite’s energy.
- Affirmations, incantations, and chants
Have your affirmations, incantations, and chants ready before you start your spell. Think about them and try to make them as precise as you can.
- Write in rhyme
Writing your spell in rhyme can help to create a rhythmic and melodic flow, which can increase the power of the spell. It doesn’t have to be long and it doesn’t have to be complicated.
- Choose the right time and place
Deciding the time and place where you perform your spell can have a big impact on its effectiveness. Consider the energy of the day, moon phases, months, and astrological correspondences that align with your intention. Also, choose a place where you feel comfortable and can focus without interruptions.
Casting your magick spell
- Create a sacred space
Cleanse the area where you will be casting the spell and create an atmosphere that feels calm and peaceful. There are many ways to cleanse your space, for example, sweeping and dusting, opening a window to release energy, burning sage, etc. You can also set up your atmosphere by playing background music, lighting mood candles, burning incense, etc.
- Cast a circle
This is an optional step, but many people believe it helps to contain the energy of the spell.
- Call upon any deities or spirits you work with
You may choose to call upon specific deities or spirits for assistance in your spell.
- Focus on your intention with visualization and affirmations
Visualize your desired outcome and concentrate on your intention as you perform the spell. Visualization and affirmations can help to focus your energy and make your spell more effective. As you perform your spell, close your eyes and visualize the outcome you desire. Repeat affirmations that align with your intention, such as “I am loved and surrounded by love.”
- Perform the spell
This can involve lighting candles, burning incense, speaking incantations, or any other actions that align with your intention.
- Thank the deities or spirits you called upon:
Show gratitude for their assistance.
- Close the circle
Close the circle if you cast one.
- Release the energy
Once the spell is complete, release the energy. You can do so by placing your palms on the ground to allow all the energy to pass through you or through visualization a cord of energy connecting you to the earth and releasing any excess energy.
- Release your magick and trust the universe
Once you have performed your spell, it is important to release it and trust in the universe to bring your intention to fruition. Trust that the universe will unfold as it should, and avoid fixating on a specific outcome. Let go of any attachment to the outcome and trust that the universe will bring you what you need.
After casting your own magick spell
- Keep a magick spellcasting journal
Keeping a journal of your spells can help you to reflect on your progress and see how your spells have manifested in your life. It can also be helpful to track the correspondences you used, the timing, and the outcome.
- Be open to different ways of spellcasting
There are many different ways to cast a spell and what works for one person may not work for another. Be open to trying new methods and techniques and finding what works best for you.
- Know the consequences
Before you cast a spell, always consider the consequences of your actions, both for yourself and for others. Remember the threefold law, what you put out into the world will come back to you threefold.
Like anything else, spellcasting takes practice. The more you practice, the better you will become at it. Be patient with yourself and have fun exploring the different ways to cast spells and connect with the spiritual realm.
It’s important to remember that magic spells are a personal and subjective practice. There is no one right way to create a spell, and it’s important to trust your intuition and find what works best for you.
