Casting Instructions for 'Spell Writing'

Clearly state your need, determine what is the purpose of the spell. Think about this carefully you must be VERY specific. Asking for protection could mean anything. You can not leave anything to chance in spellmaking. You must cover all aspects, be certain of all parts. Clearly state all dimensions of your need (enduring love, rather than just love; complete protection, rather than just physical protection; etc.).

Once you have the spell specifics determined clearly in your mind especially its purpose it's time to start building the spell together. This is where your correspondences come in. You will need to research things like candle colours, moon phases, herbs, and elements while you decide what is right for the spell. You must also decide what materials you need if any. Go with your instinct and what feels right for you. Make notes about what you want the spell to consist of and what you want to be the outcome.

Next we begin to write the spell or ritual. Don not expect the words to flow from you especially when first starting to Spellcraft. With all things it takes practice to formulate words and actions together. The more you practice the better you will become. Your mind will know what you need so always go with instinct and heart, trust your inner self. If you are using tools in your spell then try to mention them in the spell, infuse your words of power or magickal rhyme into the spell or ritual to strengthen it. Sometimes it is these words that may help you to build the entire spell or rhyme. Also think about the actual words you use, match the words to the type of spell you're composing, strong words for protection, gentler words for healing or love. During any spell or ritual chanting is used to raise power. Try to build a chant one that rhymes and repeat it several times depending on how powerful you want the spell to be. Also when writing be aware of any actions like writing on some paper, what type of paper, candle lighting, burning anything etc. You must match the words to the actions of the spell or ritual.

To finish off you must read it through carefully and make any changes or additions. Check each stage of what you have written, anything you need to do to prepare, any action at the end must also be considered. When you have everything in place you will be readty to preform your spell or ritual.

Remember that all this will be going into your own Book Of Shadows. It is very important to keep a record of the whole spell or ritual, when it was performed, what you did, did you feel anything etc.

A fine start. You should also keep a journal. Firstly to record how you feel through the whole process so you may compare before and after to see if it actually worked. But also to weight the pros and cons of a spell to ensure it is justified. Not to mention to actually record the spell so you can cast it again if it worked. I would also suggest to keep it simple. You may be tempted to get every item associated with love, but stick with three. Each item has a number of Magikal uses, and and you can muddle the energy if you use too many items since you will add ingredients with other energies to the spell that might work together better in a healing over love spell. This is why research is so important as well as recording everything.
