People that do magic, spells, shamanism, etc.?

From what I understand, self made spells are most effective because they have a stronger and more precise representation to you.

Are there any guidelines for carrying out your own spells? Are candles necessary? What forces do you call on if any? Can you describe a simple spell you might invent, and how you might carry it out?
What’s up with the disrespect guys? You are the people making this forum intolerant.
Thank you for your serious answers. Chris J, that was very informative, thank you!

Spells are enacted prayers. The tools you mentioned, Candles etc are to help you focus your intent. Here’s an example. Love spell You need: A pink candle a Pen a piece of paper. Write your name on the candle with the pen. Lick your thumb and wipe it over your name to seal your intent. Make a list of the qualities you want in a perfect mate. Light the candle and place the list under your candle. (please use common sense when working with FIRE.) the energy of the candle is adding energy to your spell work. it’s taking the… Read more »

You won’t be able to make your own spell if you’re asking other people to do it for you.
Read some books. Research. Always remember to keep an open mind and don’t desregard something simply because of its title. And when you know what you’re doing, you’ll know what you’re doing.
Remember things like this aren’t something you can just have someone teach you in an internet chatroom or buy with so many expeience points like a video game. It’s something that takes practice and intelligence.

It’s always best to have done some studying before actually starting to cast your own spells. If you’re an amature, it’s best to go to a New Age store and buy them. But yes, ususally the best spells are the ones you create yourself. Candles aren’t necessary, it depends entirely on the kind of spell and majic you’re using. I use them anyway because they help me channel energy (earth energy or my own spirit energy) and candle majic is what I specialize in. Most of my spells are pretty simple. I use different oils and tinctures that are then… Read more »

Forget the others. I agree with Lokaenna( sorry but my typing skills from high school have deteriorated for putting the accents were you did). Candles can be used in most spells(called candle magic). Some have Patron Deities that they call on but if your a beginner calling on the Muse of Inspiration would be a good start. Ritual bath to cleanse your body of negative energy. followed by prayer or meditation for focus in clearing your mind.Then there are several ways to go from there. The simplest would be to write your spell on a piece of paper or velum.… Read more »

Self-made spells are most effective, in my opinion, because every word carries the creative imprint of your energy. Just reciting a spell out of a book doesn’t have that same level of investment. Candles aren’t necessary, although they do make handy repositories for magical energy if you want to charge them with an intent and then burn them later. (See Witchcraft 101 below.) You could just as easily use a stone, or an amulet bag with herbs, for example. As a Wiccan, I call upon the God and the Goddess when I do spellwork, usually in a specific name/aspect that’s… Read more »

Kabbalah is a great thing to study, and it works!

Get closer to God, he will do your ‘magic’ for you.

Happy Kid, as you have already noticed, this is not the place to ask your question about spells and I apologize for all the nay sayers you have encountered here and for the people who ignorantly believe that the devil will come and snatch away your soul and carry you off to Hell. You do not need candles. They are used simply as a device for you to focus. One thing I learned many years ago was to try to envision what you want and then to create a frame around it in your mind’s eye and to hold it… Read more »

everyone has different beliefs and traditions. part of my power is divine, it comes from the gods. my spells are really more like focused prayer. this is paganism. some of it is natural. i consider this witchcraft, for a simple ritual or spell i would spend several days meditating on my EXACT intent. and writing the exact wording and design of the ritual. when i had figured out exactaly what i wanted to accomplish then i would preform the ritual when the time and energy was right. a sample ritual to send healing energy to a sick relative (one that… Read more »

Your energy and desire is the most powerful so casting a spell yourself is highly effective.

However it is my understanding that it takes work: there are so many books available on the subject and so many various kinds of spells you can do and they all don’t involve candles. I love candles personally but you can find many spells that don’t involve candles. The forces you call on vary this is why it’s so important to read everything about the art first before you begin.

That is true. You can use candles, but don’t need to. First you need to decide what your desired outcome is. Then you need to figure out the correct time of the month. Then you figure out what you need (from the elements) to carry that out. The four main elements are air, earth, fire, and water. Each of the four directions represent these elements. But before you try ANY of these, you need to clean your aura and try to strengthen it. I would look into books to find out how. There is a lot that goes into a… Read more »

Yes, self written spells are more effective but, if you’re new to it, you’ll naturally be nervous so practice makes perfect. You should Google spells or how to write a spell. There are a few sites that will guide you in the process. Really, you can do whatever you want. You can make up the rules. The more personal, the better because you’ll have more faith in what you’re doing. Just do your research to get some guidelines and go from there. Listening to too many sources isn’t good so just try to stick to one way of doing things… Read more »

Sympathetic Magic is the easiest and the oldest of practices. A very old “spell” is as simple as getting a yes or no answer by plucking the petals of a flower or placing a kissed petal of a rose in an admired one’s pocket.

Ignore the nay sayers.

I’m not going to teach you how to do spells on the internet, sorry. They aren’t toys.

There are no real guidelines for creating them so long as they are personal to you. The items that are used are only to heighten your own focus and concentration. They don’t actually have power in and of themselves, its you that does.

Yes, any spell you write yourself is going to be much more powerful because you put your own energy into creating it. In my opinion there really are no rules as such, you don’t need candles. People often use candles because it helps set the mood and can be used for helping focus the mind. Now the type of magic I practice involves working with Galdor-Staves (bind runes). For that you’d have to study the runes. Basically it’s combining the different runes to bring about a desired effect by drawing them (or carving them). Hexology works pretty much the same… Read more »
