I have a close friend that has a very important tournament coming up next weekend and has asked me to do a spell for him to help him with his success. I have written a spell but he can not be present with me when I cast it. I have always written spells for myself but never for anyone that was not with me when I cast it. How do I make sure the energy goes to him and not me. Thank you.
Without knowing anything about your spell I can say absolutely that Magickis not a projectile, it is a spiritual force beyond time and space. Simply put, just have the intentions of casting the spell you've prepared onto your friend, see him or her obtaining whatever it is the spell is meant to provide, create a focusing tool, such as if the chant mentions his name then provide something such as "Name, will be successful in the tournament he is in for (Name of tournament) (continue chant) ..." Of course I can say so much in general as I don't know of your spell involves tools, items, candles, spell powders, petitions, charms or talismans etc.
