PostSubject: To Be a Success   8/10/2013, 10:07 pm

These are my personal theories I give to any of my students that are just starting out in spell craft and spell casting.

Don't think too much about your spell after casting, because it then sends out energy controversial to the original spell's intent.

Spells are the use of magic, magic is the changing and shifting of energy in its most basic form.

A spell is a tool to direct magic or that energy in order to help the odds of what's desired to happen or manifest.

When you cast a spell make your intention is clear and the spell is accurately portraying your intention. Make sure the goal is realistic.
* If you cast a spell to turn into a fish, then it probably won't work. Why? Because even without a spell you aren't turning into a fish anytime soon.

Make sure you believe in what you're doing, and you have faith in your ability to successfully cast the spell.
* Without confidence then there's nothing directing the energy in which you're attempting to change or use.

Keep your focus! Do not forget or randomly decide to change your intention or goal halfway through the spell.
* For reasons similar to the last tip it just won't turn out right.

Be ready to deal with the consequences. Research the form of magic you're using because even spells are separated into smaller categories. You need to understand what you're doing and how it's going to work. Prepare yourself for what you think might come of it.
* An example would casting a simple circle for protection before proceeding with summoning or something alike.

Accept the reality of it. Your spell might or might not be successful and this does mean you might fail. Don't worry! You still learned something, and you were still able to gain experience whether it be fruitful or not.
* If you were really hoping to become a fish and you didn't, go back over the spell and attempt to figure out why it wasn't successful (though in that case what went wrong would be obvious).

Enjoy yourself and find the passion required for practice. Halfhearted practice is a quick way to not get anywhere. Use tools or materials if it will help (whatever works for you) just as long as you allow yourself to really feel or get into what you're doing.

This is something I have tried to convey as well. Banish the spell from your mind upon casting. Thinking upon it alters possible outcomes and drains energy.

unless entering through gnostic techniques to empower the intent thus keeping one's mind clear on that same intent without interrupting the process with needless thoughts?

I would actually agree partially on that Electric. Do what you can to put yourself in a position to increase the odds of success while keeping to your own physical efforts. Spells can be fragile but your efforts are not put to waste (usually), so you don't normally have to keep charging spells. Some rituals and maybe a few spells I've witness might require that but I'd say it's typically more a dedication/religious level such as asking for something from a patron or entity.

i can actually understand that, cant find the words right now but sometimes you just flow with the feeling, sometimes a single act is enough and does not need to be busted by several more

Very true Electric, those methods, while not for the average caster on the go, are sure fire mental ways to give more precision and direction to a spell.

Rituals, spells, Magick... Are all just extensions of our true will. How we seek to make subtle ripples or drastic changes in our own realities. Only by focusing the to a single point in some form (whether it as an elaborate ritual, sigil, or simple phrase) will the change come about.

Well said Electric.

Dramega, that's why it's harder for me to explain the difference between and elaborate spell with traditional values and a ritual to beginners. I know that's off topic but in my opinion whichever method you use boils down to the same thing: changing, shifting, and manipulating energy to increase the odds of the desired outcome. Spells, rituals, sigils, chants, psionics, etc...they're all tools. They are tools only to help you with what is ultimately all you and the energy you manage to gather for the occasion.
