...Without doubt you can, and in time you will learn that every spell you make, is more powerfull then any spell read, in Witchcraft your touch is one of the elements that makes the spell potent . There are several websites which help you make your very own spell, if you plan on using herbs, specific candles, moon phases, ours etc . You may very well just create the text, beeing specific on what is the purpose of the spell, think if very well before putting it into action, and try with white candles . If you want to try out a spell read somewhere, alwasy try to change it here and there , to add your personal touch, or just use it as a refference to making your spell ...


Goodluck on your journey with Witchcraft.

Consider what you think a spell is. To me a spell *on the most basic level* is a kind of magick ritual based on the enounciation of voice. So basically if you can do something as simple as speak you can make your own spells. Spells can be more complex and incorperate the use of symbols, ritual tools, physical gestures, planetary alignment, time of day, special events (full moon, eclipse, haley's comet etc). Even more complex spells can work in steps where one performs one action that leads into another that eventually leads to climax.

I'd suggest using the search function or the internet to look up spells. Find a few simple ones that appeal to you can try them out. If they work you can create your own spells using the others as a sort of guideline.

Ok 3rd Dimension you're a fairly new member so please let me point out that we generally don't like one liners on this site. If you're going to post something please elaborate on it a little bit.

So you say the spells come from the "spirits". Ok exactly which spirits are you talking about? If others know they might be able to teach you how to utilize them through spell craft.

Even more important than vocalizing the spell is throwing your intention behind it (Your Will ... your intention ... is ultimately what powers the spell.)


Your spell has to be meaningful to YOU. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blablabla.gif)


I have a fluffy, flowery, mass-market "spellbook" that I bought at Barnes & Noble that I occasionally read for kicks (IMO, the author is more of a poet than a sorceress: "Fill my wings/Blow winds, blow/To Grandmother's house I go!" (IMG:style_emoticons/default/groan.gif) )



The Universe respects a clear intention. For my money, the best spells are those that are short, sweet, and to the point.

When writing a spell, act is if whatever you wish to manifest has ALREADY happened ("I NOW have ... ", "I AM ... ", etc.)



Minus your intention ... your Will ... your certainty that whatever you intend to manifest will come to pass ... the most powerful "spell" in the world will be nothing more than empty words. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

Of course intention is the fuel of the magick machine but it could be argued that uttering any words at all contain some measure of intention. By starting small one learns to develope intention and understand how desire and personality play into one's intentions. Many people cast spells without actually ven understanding their own intentions and often they end up getting burned because of it. So in that case intention and vocalizing aren't the only factor in spell craft. Besides we must then consider projecting intention. This can be done via lighting a candle, singing and dancing, charging a symbol and wearing it, sheer will and so many other ways. Point being intentions aren't just the basis of spellcraft but magick in general.

oh im sorry.. when i said spirits.. i mean supernatural mentors or teachers. that when a person has a supernatural mentor, they are the one who gives spells and incantations to them. i just want to clear our if it's really possible to make our own spells without the aid of the supernatural. i asked this because it seems to me like the magic happens because of whatever comes out in our mouth.

How can you make something supernatural like spells without the aid of the supernatural? Can you see the error in your logic? Consider what is the supernatural. That is science beyond what we know. If so then making your own spells requires the aid of the supernatural, but not necessarily from spirits. If you consider the properties that make up spirits and compare those to our own, then in actuallity we are supernatural beings too. As such then what would stop us manifesting our own magickal acts like spells?

It's quite strange to me sometimes how people refer to to magick as 'supernatural'.
I think it's quite the opposite. I feel it's completely natural.

Not that I'm a natural


I think I mean that we were sort of meant to manipulate energy & of course everyone has mentioned that a lot of basic repetitive actions are really just spells like speaking or drawing a symbol (Remember those cutesy 'I love [insert incredibly sexy name here] forever' written everywhere...I think they could be considered a spell)...


Maybe.

This is probably in the wrong place but I was wondering if anyone knew any spells which would make someone loose their voice or silence them. Basically two people I know keep shouting up at my house late in the night, i'm talking 2:30-3:00am and ive told them time and time and time again but they just keep doing it, it won't happen day after day, there might be one night then a night of peace then they call up the next night. Its almost like they're mocking me and going against my will on purpose. I just wish they'd shut up, I live in a block of flats and they're calling out my name, the whole block can hear. Any idea's?

If I did, I would never hear the last of it. Out here in the gutter you don't get the police involved. It got real bad last night/this morning, they came back to my flat at 5 in the morning this time outside my front door and whistling and shouting my name...... I'd literally got into bed 15mins earlier. They were there till 7 in the morning and I didn't end up getting to sleep until around 8 o'clock. I was praying for atleast a whole hour to the Lord to make them go away but they stayed and I prayed that they would'nt shout my name out but they contuined. It really became something of a nightmare. I was so angry that I was having trouble sleeping even when they went and I started to get hungry and need the toilet, so I had to get up and ended up rolling another hash spill to send me off. While I was doing this I thought I'd check the calender to see if there was anything significant about this day and it just so happens to be Yom Kippur, though i'm not Jewish. And the Autumn Equinox is Sunday. I really do want a spell now, even more so. I might just make one up if you're not willing to share any idea's, something like a piece of string and tying a knot in it or two.
peace

Try not think of the supernatural and natural seperate. The supernatural is not synthetic or artificial. It is not beyond, above or below natural. What is supernatural is also natural. But the supernatural is beyond science. Not our understanding, but what we can scientificially say is fact. Like gravity or atmospheric pressure. We do not have the mind or technologically to prove the existance of the supernatural. Yet even just because there is a field called "supernatural", means that while we can't prove it there is a strong mentallity that it does exist. Its just beyond our current capability to fully understand.

I find that my own spells hold more power for me than spells made by another.

When I make a spell I put a lot of effort into it. I research. I plan. I write it out. I gather and put together items. Those type of things put power into the word, incantations, and items that you use to cast your spell. More power than finding a spell off of the net which could be misworded or draw out things that you are not prepared for.

For example, a luck spell could draw a lot of luck to you. The downside that bad luck and good luck can be drawn in equil abundance if not specified properly. i.e. Lets say that you win 25 thousand in a scratch off ticket but the excitement causes a blood clot to form in your brain and you have a stroke.

I don't do many spells for personal gain. Mostly it is about celebrating the seasons or honouring the gods. But if I want to do so I would take the beginning and the ending of my usual rituals and just make changes to the middle, the heart of the ritual. It saves a lot of writing as most of my rituals take 30 or 40 minutes. Cut and paste is a useful tool for any writing --whether a spell or a novel. While many like their spells short and sweet I prefer to weave a lot of different methods together to reinforce one another. I'm not saying that my way is the only way, but it seems to work best for me.

A house of cards is stronger if its reinforced with plywood and duck tape. I rarely do spells but when I do it is usually for personal gain. Not in the sense of greed or lust or some such vain or selfish reason rather when in a time of need like over comming depression, illness, unemployment etc etc. I do occassionally do spells for others but I usually sit them down and work with them to find mundane means to get whatever they want. Psychology is at many times more effective, or rather more practical, than magick.

Hey Al,
To a degree, where I'm living, I've got the same problem. I'm living on a main road, and I get a lot of people loitering, shouting, and swearing so it can make it difficult for me to sleep, meditate, or work in peace.

Seeing as although I'm still a neophyte, I'm more oriented towards the chaos style, my own solution to the problem was a guardian servitor in the shape of my Orc character from World of Warcraft. If there are people making a disturbance out the front now, I tell her to go out there and move them along. Not to injure them, but simply to either be stern or scare them a little. I'm fairly certain I actually physically heard her growling at some women who were out there once! I know the subsequent squeals of fright were real, even if the growl I heard wasn't! Mirshalak is very effective, though...I don't know exactly what she does, but I do know that when I ask her to go and deter someone who is making a noise, they generally become silent only a few seconds after I send her...so that's good enough for me. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Another recommendation I would make would be a self-replicating energy recycling servitor which vacuums up the negative energy/thoughtforms put out by the shouting (because there'd be lots) and as well as using that energy to survive, also converting it to serene/positive energy and then re-projecting that back out into the immediate environment instead. I also knew of some chaotes who made a self-replicating servitor for time compression which they said was effective, so I'm sure you could probably make one that, after it had self-replicated a few times, could effectively absorb sound waves (the shouting) over an area you specify.

Worth trying, at least.

Sounds awesome. If it works, work with it.
I live in a block of flats right next to a highroad and I get noise coming from each and everyway, pesky neighbours (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) so theres usually some distaction somewhere but if I can still my mind and be at peace in the land of chaos then amen to that lol.

Thanks for the advice and the rest of you that offered. I don't usually think about doing spells to get my own way this was just.... the only way I can say I guess is, a side track, the stress was building up so much that I would do nearly anything to attain peace and in life I am an experimenter and thought to give it a try. The whole issue is resolved now though, I absorbed all their disruptions and gave it back to them (verbally). (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
Correct me if i'm wrong but if one was to be attuned to the divine or at one with the spirit and divine Will, surely what you Will will be, without the use of spell casting.
Al.

--------------------



One thing I learned is ,it doesn't matter how you do the spell, but rather the amount of energy you put in it, you can use your spirit power which is supernatural (as you stated) without calling upon a deity or a magickal entity (in such case you are the magickal entity),for example chaos magick uses a similar technique. you project raw energy, give it purpose,send it to the astral plain , then let go and forget.
I used this technique with splendid results.
I think that's what he meant.
of course the incantation you utter must mean something to you,so it has a power to cling on in your subconscious.
The idea of being Dependant on a magickal entity never appealed to me so much,although there are occasions which require that.
but that's just my opinion.
