Intent and intensity

These are cornerstones of magick, because no spell can be cast without them. A spell’s purpose, or intent, is what that spell is meant to accomplish. A spell will not work properly unless you are very clear, in your mind and in your words, about what you mean the spell to do. Focused intent is crucial in spell-work,

Intensity is the power, passion, and energy that you pour into casting a spell. If you are ambivalent or uncertain about a spell, it is not likely to be fulfilled. The more intensity you put into it, the more successful that spell is likely to be. Keep this in mind when you raise power.
