When writing a spell the one thing that will affect it the most is the intent you have when writing and chanting it. There are certain things every spell should have in it. A spell also does not just affect the person casting it but has long-range effects you may never know about. This is why I will never do a spell that affects another person or living thing’s free will, such as a spell to make someone fall in love with a specific person.
You should never cast a spell, even a healing spell, for or on someone without their permission and/or knowledge.
Before casting a spell have what you desire it to do firmly in your mind, even visualize the outcome if you can. This helps the spell be stronger and gives it more chance in coming to fruition.
When writing the spell the things it should include are:
Who – Who is the spell for or who is it going to effect
What – What specifically is the spell for and what do you want the outcome of it to be
When – When do you want the spell to start working – immediately, tomorrow, next week, etc
How – How is the spell suppose to work – is it suppose to bring something to you or send something away?
Where – This can mean 2 things either where you will do the spell or where is the spell suppose to work.
Always ask yourself WHY am I writing this spell? What do I want the end result from it to be? When do I want it to happen? Who do I want it to happen to and how do I want it to happen? If you are a novice Witch if you copy nothing else from this post into your Book of Shadows please copy the preceding two sentences. It gives you all the parts you need to include in a spell.
