To cast magic spells is actually very simple once you understand a few key principles of white magic that you can follow. Here are a few of the fundamental ideas of casting magic spells to quickly introduce you to the subject so you know what to expect, and can begin to cast your own spells.

GROUNDING & CENTERING

Before you start a spell you must prepare yourself for the huge volumes of power and energy that are about to course through your body and in the air around you. You must ground yourself so as to connect yourself with the Earth and all the energy and magic therein, and you must center your spirit so you are calm, focused, relaxed and ready to perform good magic.

Grounding and centering usually consists of a few short and simple exercises to relax your body and mind, and to connect yourself with the Earth give you an anchor point to quickly come back to reality in case you get very carried away during the spell casting.

RASING ENERGY

In this process you invite the power of the four corners of the Earth, the power of the five elements (Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Aether/Spirit), and any other Gods, Goddesses or deities you wish to communicate with.

You also create a circle of protective energy around yourself which protects you from external forces and keeps your magic contained so it can be properly directed.

FOCUSING ON THE OUTCOME

The third rule of good spell casting is that you must focus your will on your desired outcome. Most of the magic from the spells you cast will come from within yourself, and from your mind and spirit. You must concentrate clearly on your wishes and goals, why you’re casting the spell and what you want to happen.

Visualise the outcome clearly and sharply in your head, and mentally commit to putting all your energy and effort into achieving those goals from this point forward. Your belief in the magic is proportional with the power that you direct into the spell and also proportional to the results.

The more you believe, the better your magic will be and so the better the results will be.

PERFORMING THE SPELL

Next comes the actual spell part.

You will normally have found a spell somewhere – the library, a bookshop, or in the Internet somewhere. Spells usually consist of short, simple rituals such as lighting candles, mixing oils and herbs in water, simple movements or the arms and body, reciting incantations aloud and so on.

The spell is the tool which unlocks the power inside you and allows it to be released towards your goals. Having the correct spell will mean that the largest possible amount of power is released and so the spell will be most effective.

You have to have the right tool for the job at hand.

SPELL IS COMPLETE

When the spell is finished, do not simply abandon the ideas and the goals you’ve committed to – now you must continue the magic by holding these things in your head at all times and continuing to focus on them.

Every day, quickly run through a short visualisation of your intended outcome and imagine yourself being happy, successful, loved and everything else you want to be. Eventually, with patience and practice, your magic will take effect and you will get everything you’ve ever wanted!

Magic spells come in many different styles, traditions, formats and for different specific purposes. For example, love spells are a very popular branch of magic. Click the links to learn more.
