Spellwork

Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it. Word spells carefully, specifically, but not too specifically (a car instead of a fire red 1998 Camaro). You will pass over opportunities if your spells are too nit picky. In all spells say something to the effect of "in a safe manner that harms no one." I use, "May what I do be good and for the best." Phrases like this are a general safety clause in case there are things involved in the situation that you are not aware of or that you are dismissing because of your viewpoint on the subject. Spells do not have to rhyme, but the sound of rhyme can lull the conscious mind and allow the unconscious to make the manifestation occur quicker. Some good things to end spells and dismiss the powers you have called are, "Merry meet, merry part, and merry meet again," "Go well and stay well my friends," "So say I, this spell is done," "Blessings to all who come to my aid, between friends is this bargain made," and "So mote it be."

Your power hand is your dominant hand (right for righties, left for lefties). Your receptive hand is your other hand. When sending power out use your power hand. When taking it in use your receptive hand.

NEVER sprinkle salt or salt water outside on the ground. It will kill plants and that's the last thing you want to do during a ritual or spell.

Spells can be as simple as wishing something to happen, like the "Leaf Spell" or the "Wishes and Wants Spell," to as complicated as the "Strengthen Your Psychic Shield Spell." The more involved a spell is and the more symbols are involved that aim your desires towards the hoped for manifestation the more focused the spell will be. However, more involved doesn't necessarily mean better. Sometimes the simplest spell will get the job done the quickest and easiest.

The actual spell is only part of the process. For spells to work you need to work on them. If you want to be calmer and you do a spell to become calmer it will not work if you do not work on it. If you have three young children and a ten hour a day job and strife in the home a spell will not help your stress level and get you to be more calm if you do not start to take some time for yourself to let the spell work. For instance take a walk, or a bath, or something to allow you to relax so that the spell can have a chance to work.

Spellwork for healing the body is a wonderful and helpful thing. It does not replace medical attention though. In some instances understanding that you need medical attention is part of the path. Magick can work hand in hand with modern medicine and I personally believe that it should. Western medicine deals with treating the body; magick can help in that and at the same time help in healing the mind and soul without which the body will not be able to heal itself. Besides that many more doctors are opening up to the ideas of working with the body for better healing. Many are now prescribing herbs that our ancestors used for centuries with great success.

Also, never do spellwork for other people without their permission. It is a trust issue. You wouldn't want people to meddle in your life without your knowledge and permission so why would anyone else like it if you did so to them?

Then there is the practice of going "skyclad" or nude during rituals. Some people do, some don't. Some feel it brings them closer to nature. Others feel embarrassed or cold or just can't concentrate without clothes. It is an option, but just that, an option. Do not feel that you have to go skyclad because that is the only way to do it. It isn't. If you can't concentrate or feel uncomfortable, what's the point? This path is supposed to be a joyous and fulfilling one, not one that forces you to do things that you are not comfortable with.

The sections that follow have what I believe are decent examples of spells and rituals. This does not mean you should follow them by rote! I put this section up to help people learn how to make their own spells and rituals. Use these as examples for your own spells and rituals. And, please, do not ask me to put up more spells or to email you spells because I will not. I believe what is up here is enough to get anyone started writing their own. Oh and all of them should be preformed in a ritual circle for best effect.
