Common Mistakes Made During Spell Casting
People forget to focus on what they are doing, or loose focus during the spell
People forget to cast a circle when they are beginners
Forget to raise energy
Forget to Visualize
Try to use substitution for herbs or items that can't be substituted.
Leave their tools or supplies outside of their working area and don't know how to open and reclose the circle, you need to have everything already in the circle before hand
They try to do spells that defy gravity, influence freewill etc...
When a spell doesn't work they insult the deities that were present (this is a HUGE NO NO)
They don't formulate the spell properly

Not understanding the reason behind meditation and visualization - meditation before spell casting aids in energy raising, focus and visualization. If they don't understand how to meditate then it is hard for them to go into a spell with a clear mind of what they are going to do.
Ground and Center before as well as after the spell. (this leads to either excess energy or lack of energy if not done)
Not being silent about your workings (this depletes the energy from the spell)
Don't Obsess over the spell, or cast too many towards the same goal, this too depletes and can cancel out the work.
Doing your part, adding positivity to any spell adds a little extra power to it.
The simple rule: ACT POSITIVELY TOWARD YOUR GOAL. Learn, focus, and act when appropriate.
