I need help
By:
Post # 1
I have just started looking at all of this today. I have read the basics and know how to cast a spell. I just feel like I'm drowning in all the information. Is there anything I should know before casting any spells other than how to? Is there a spell I should do before any others? Is it safe to practice spells? I have no intention of hurting me or anyone else. I really would like to protect my friends and family as much as possible, so is this a good idea?

-Thanks

Calm down. Its okay. You can cast whatever you want first. If your intention has nothing to do with hurting anyone than I see no reason why you would have to worry about spells being dangerous. It is good to practice protection spells first, in my opinion, because if they go wrong than chances are that you will only be left the exact same way you were before the spell.

However if you are in immediate danger, or feel threatened by someone, do call the authorities. I say this only because if your comment about protection.

Remember that when you are done with the spell you should take down your circle and cleanse the space again.

As for weather or not its a good idea, only you can decide that.

What are some things that help increase a spells success in your opinion? Also what is this "circle"? I'm super new (like I said) and I haven't read up on much of that kind of stuff yet.

A spells chance of success can increase if you re experienced, if you have good visualization skills, if you are casting the spell during the right moon phase, if you are using ingredients and additions (as I call them, meaning candles, herbs, crystals, etc) that go along with your intent.

The circle-meaning the magick circle- is basically a agicj/energy barrier that you set uparound the space that you intend to cast your spell in. It creates your sacred space. It isused to protect you, and to keep the energy in one spot until you are completely done with the spell, ritual, or whatever you are working. You raise energy and send it out through your fingers (or athame, or wand) as you walk in a clockwise circle around the spot you intend to do your magick. If you go through the circle you may put a hole in it, so make sure you have everything you need before you cast the circle. When you are don't your working you can take down the circle by walking counter clockwise around the circle, pulling the barrier back up your fingers ans sending it back out of your feet and into the ground.


If I forgot something, you can probably find more information on casting a circle in the articles section, or you can use the search to find a forum post.

"Agicj" is actually supposed to be "magick'

I have ok visualization skills. I have practiced with telepathy before. I'm sure magick is much harder. I have been reading through everything on the page, thanks for showing me the articles section! I have a couple more questions if you don't mind answering them.

How do I make my OWN spells? I would like to make my own so I know they will work. I have read posts on this and they explain with not enough detail for me. So can you explain it all the way?

Well if you want to make your own, a good thing to do is to
1. Make a goal
Then
2. Make a logical way to accomplish it
3. Make it safer by adding in cleansing and protection between stages
4. Add a chant or an elemental sacrifice or such things to make more energy go directly towards the spell you want.

That's a pretty good outline of how to make a spell^.

You just need to get a pen and paper and start writing, pretty much. You don't even necessarily need words. The only things absolutely necessary for a spell are you, energy, and your intent. If you want to add things like candles and incense, make sure the color meaning (and possibly the smell) are related to what you intend to do with the magick. For example white candles and sage are good for cleansing. If you are working with crystals, make sure of the same thing. In your writing of the spell you can make it rhyme, include an invocation if you wish, or just make it a simple prayer type thing.

So after you cleanse the space and set up the circle, (frequently one also calls the corners), you ground, center, with the energy centered you can then chant your spell while adding your intent to the energy. Then send it out.

slow down. its good to learn and learn but with things like this and just starting, focus on one subject at a time. get a notebook or start a computer document and record the things you feel are interesting or need-to-know.
Before casting any spells, start with exercises like meditation, raising and channeling power, and energy work before you move onto spellwork.
Start by learning to cast a circle and release a circle. Then when you begin with spells I'd say you start with Cleansing spells before any others.
