PThere are many ways to raise energy whether you are on your own or you are in a group. When you are intending to put energy onto a spell you're actully planning when you're going ro do it which is very important. For example, at the start you are deciding what you need dor the spell for you tools and etc... You decide how you're going to raise your energy. It is very effective when it comes to actully casting the spell.
Also, if you're in a group its better if all of you set the intention of raising energu because just one person raising energy for the group spell isn't going to be enough energy is it? The more energy you have raised the chance you have of it working, but then must 'will' the spell to work after raising the energy or directing it whatever you like to call it.
There are several ways to raise energy, there are chants, rhymes, visualisation etc, its what works best for you and what the requirements are for the spell. Meditation is a big help when it comes to raising energy because meditation teaches us how to clear our mind and how to focus on that one thing.
I will be adding more to this as soon as possoble.
