casting my 1st spell??
Hope this is in the right section?
I went to a complimentary festival on sun (halloween) and bought a few new bits and I bought a 'spell kit' I guess its called, the lady on the stall was lovely and told me a bit about it. I didn't have any specific wishes to make or spells to cast just a general few things.
I got a 'spell kit' which had a candle, some oil, some salt/grit stuff, and a small gemstone. So I sat outside on sun evening, put some of the oil on the candle, made a ring of salt wround the candle, placed the gemstone within the ring of salt and lit the candle. Then made my wishes known to the candle, does that sound about right? Also the candle would have taken a while to burn down so was i right to blow it our after a good few mins?? I hope to use it all again? I went outside because it was dry but cold and breezy but I believe its ok to do it indoors when its not so nice out?
Would you recommend I repeat this whenever I have a wish/desire? I guess I just observe time and see if what Ive wished comes to light?
Any hints and tips to a beginner?
Thanks Amanda 🙂
Be very sure that you have examined all sides of your wishes/desires, how your wish might affect somebody else, and that you really do want that. Remember, always, "do no harm".
no negative wishes made nor about anyone else, hopefully a good 1st attempt 🙂
sounds good to me but I agree with Lorna. A good example I was told years ago was of a lady who asked that she always be waited on hands and foot. Her wish came true. she fell off a horse and was paralised from neck down. So please be carefull how you word things. I always finish with "or the most positive alternate the universe wishes to grant me"
Ohhhh, thanks Paula I will try to remember that next time 🙂
... also to phrase your wish in a positive way - so that you're not thinking about the thing that you do not want, but rather the thing that you do want
I echo what others have said about ending any wishes/spells with harm none, or asking for the most appropriate outcome etc.
Yes you can do spell work inside, that's the beauty of spell work, its portable. 🙂
My only advice on the candle front is to only use that candle for the wishes you have envoked in it already, don't use the candle for new wishes as I feel that it dilutes the previous intention. You can extinguish the candle as you wish especially as its not wise to leave a candle unattended when lit. You can also light the same candle for a short period over a series of nights to continue the spell if you feel its necessary or desirable.
Spell work is about what feels right to you. Expect a few unexpected results and learn from them. I've been practicing for a number of years and I get it wrong from time to time, but I've also learnt from what has occurred.
When wishing for something, it's so true to be exact. I knew one fledgling witch who was inexperienced. She wished for some money but without qualifying it. The following year her dad died and she inherited in his will. Another also wished for money, a death occurred and he got the insurance money.
I refuse to cast spells for anyone else, since a friend asked me to 'break up her boyfriend's new relationship.' This was done with the intention that he would return to her. I cast a spell for her (stupid thing to do) and once done, I told her never to ask me about it (it was part of the spell.) She couldn't keep quiet about it, and asked me every opportunity she had. The spell worked in that the boyfriend's relationship broke up but he didn't return to her. Again, this was when I was just starting out.
Casting spells must be done with extreme caution and preferrably using an experienced witch to guide you.
