All the Spells, and/or rituals that you have seen at one point had to be created, and written down. Learning to do this process, and to write down your own spells, and rituals can be a very fun, and creative process. Learning to do this can greatly help you along your path allowing your magick to become more versatile, and connected to you. You will not need to know a lot in order to do this, all you will need to do is understand metaphysical properties, so that you can put them together in order to form some form of a spell, and/or ritual. It’s also very important that you understand how magick works. Being able to write, and create your own spell so that you can personalize them can increase the power, and understanding that you hold with that spell, and/or ritual.
Setting the intent:
First you need to figure out what you want your intention for the spell, or ritual to be. This can be whatever you wanted to be but it should be in the realms of something that can be achieved through the energy, and will that you have, or can muster. This will make you set your intention so that you can form the rest of your spell, and/or ritual around it, so you will be able to make appropriate choices in choosing things to help you in that spell, and/or ritual. Before you do anything else you must understand what you want to accomplish from this. It will be your blueprint for the rest of what you are building here, so spend a lot of time and focus exactly on what you want to bring forth, and to manifest in the universe around you. The intent will shape the rest of the spell, and/or ritual, so make sure it is exactly what you want before proceeding. You are going to want to create a journal or some place where you can write down this to keep track of what you have done, and the results. This will allow you to learn, and improve from what you have already done, so that you can make your spells, and rituals better. You never know what you could learn, and want to add to your technique in order to improve it for yourself, or anyone else who will use it.
In order to manifest our desires upon the universe, we are first going to need to gather constructs that have to do with our intent, so that we can call those energies into our spell, and/or ritual when it comes time to cast it. To find constructs that will fit your intent you should look for items that are well-known for representing the energies that you would like to use in this spell, and/or ritual. You can do this by looking at metaphysical properties of certain stones gemstones, crystals, herb, colors, elements, tools, and much more. These things should have something to do with the energies that you would like to bring into the world. This would be like bringing in three leaf clovers along with the color green, and earth in order to bring about luck. You might want to choose a specific time, day or even place that you could do your spell that might aid in the intent of your spell, and/or ritual. You could even come up with some form of a chant in order to ingrain your intent into the energies that you are gathering. You may also want to gather items that are going to supply the overall energy of your spell this would be things such as candles, clear quartz, or selenite, so that they can use their energies to increase the already existing energy of the spell, and/or ritual. This can be incredibly helpful when trying to increase the overall effectiveness, and power of the spell, and/or ritual.
If you want your spell to target someone, something or even yourself you can bring in to your spell, and/or ritual some form of taglock. This taglock could be linked to someone, something, or even yourself through the laws of names, association, similarity, and/or contagion. If you were going to use a taglock that used the law of names you could try to incorporate the name of where you are trying to send the energy, somehow into the spell, and/or ritual, so that you could direct it at that target. This could be done by speaking their name during the spell, and/or ritual, or even writing it down and just having a present during the spell, and/or ritual. You could use the law of association by associating something, so heavily with what you are trying to affect, and have that be present in your spell, and/or ritual, so that you can manifest your desires upon it. You could use the law of similarity in your spell, and/or ritual by getting a picture of what you would like to affect, and using that to send the energy to your target. In order for you to use the law of contagion in your spell, and/or ritual you would need to get something that came in contact with what you are trying to affect so that you can use it as a target to get to them with the energy that you will be harnessing. Using these taglocks could help you in so many different ways when making spells, and/or rituals while trying to figure out how to connect it to a certain form of construct.
In order to give your spell even more power you might want to call in some other entities in order to help you get exactly what you desire. These entities can be any entities that would be willing to work with you. These entities could be anything from spirit guides, angels, totems, spirit companions, gods, goddesses, familiars, and even ancestors among many other things. They will be able to influence your spellcraft, and help move your energy in the place that you would want it to be. they are great allies, and friends that will be good to call upon especially in this time. So allow these entities to work with you if they are willing to.
Casting the spell, and/or ritual you created :
When you have all these components together you are ready to then do your spell. What you are going to want to do is gather all your materials that you have already decided on in the steps above. Bring them all to a place where you will not be disturbed and you can focus solely on the magick that you are working. Now you are going to want to light your candles, and incense, and maybe even turn on some music, or you some form of instrument in order to make ambience to get the mood just right, and to even help out with the spellcraft. You should then enter the area where you will be doing your craft, and this is when you should take on a meditative state in order for you to connect with the spiritual realms, and planes of existences. Now before you start the spell that you have prepared yourself, you will need to do the basic stuff that you should usually do before every spell. This would be such things as grounding, and centering, so that you can be firmly connected to the earth, while you do all of your spell craft. You should also do some cleansing, and/or banishing using any form of method that you find useful I would personally recommend the Lesser banishing ritual of the pentagram, because it’s a classic. Casting a circle, or some other form of protection technique, so constructs that you do not want interacting with you or the spell stay far away. Once you are done with all of that you can then begin your spell, and/or ritual that you created.
Now you need to take all of the elements that you decided about for the spell, and/or ritual. The idea here is to take all of the correspondences from all the things that you have gathered, and put them together into a workable usable system. Bringing in all the energies from all the items that you have gathered, so you can push it out into the universe, or at a target of your choice in order to cast it out, making your spell, and/or ritual a reality. That’s all there really is to it my friend. Just the energies that you employ, and how, or what you send them at, is what will change the effectiveness, and overall strength of the spell. Remember to gather up the energy that you want, so that it can follow your intention. Energy will always follow intent, allowing you to manifest your desires upon the universe.
Once you are done with your spell, or ritual remember to undo your protection, to banish and/or cleanse again, and then to find the ground, and center again. This will put everything back to where it is supposed to be, so that you can continue on with your day, while knowing that you have cleaned up the leftover energies from your spell, and/or ritual.
