Common Spell Casting Steps

1. WRITE THE SPELL
Write your spell on a piece of paper. Take the time to make it meaningful and easy to recite. Rhymes help with this, and so does keeping things concise. Include your affirmation and be very specific!
2. COLLECT YOUR INGREDIENTS
If you’re interested in using tools and ingredients in your spell, collect them before hand by matching your intention to items that emit the energy you are desiring to bring forward in your spell. Herbs, candles, teas, incense and other items that bring you satisfaction are all great ingredients to use in the way that you see fit.
3. CREATE YOUR SPACE
Creating a sacred space is something many witches prefer to do before they begin to work their spells. A home altar is ideal for many, while others like to work their magick in nature. In any case, your space can benefit from being quiet, distraction free and purified and protected.
4. CENTER YOURSELF
Now that you’ve created a space to work within, turn your attention inward to connect with your higher self. Shift your consiousness from the world you live in to the world your spirit inhabits. If you work your magick with Deities, Spirits or other energetic beings, call on them to assist your magick here.
5. RAISE YOUR ENERGY
Energy manipulation is the core of what makes spells work according to your will. Gather your will, ignite your passion and raise the energy that surrounds your intention. Draw power from within (or without, depending on your tradition) and project it into your work.
6. PERFORM YOUR SPELL
Recite your spell infusing the energy you’ve drawn up. Focus deeply on the intention you desire to bring into reality, and visualise your outcome coming to fruition while you feel the deep emotions its success evokes in your life.
