Hi, many simple spells can be found on this site using only candles, words, concentration and focus. The root of magick is belief. Ingredients are used to give the ritual/spell more depth but many can be perfomed with just the above. Love and Light.

People the world over have often cast spells without ever knowing it.
If you have ever blown out the candles on a cake and made a wish, you have cast a spell. Pulled a wishbone? That's another spell. Thrown salt over your shoulder for luck? It's a spell.
A spell is a ritual wish. Like a prayer. The difference being that a prayer is asking for help from a higher power (Deity), a spell is a do-it-yourself exercise.
