I've been practicing spells without any ingredients, only intention. I've created certain incantations for myself and have grown into a habit of repeating them throughout the day - and it works.
Even last night when I was getting ready for bed, I stated my desires before closing my eyes, saying that I would be well and fully healed in the morning (as I've been sick for the past three days). I then curled up and fell asleep, waking up with absolutely no symptoms of whatever I'd managed to catch.
I'm rather happy with this and will begin to pencil in my own thoughts and chants into my Book. It's a little accomplishment that makes this baby witch happy. :D
