Casting Magic Spells Faq

Casting Magic Spells Faq Cover - I thought White Magic Spells had to be cast for you by a witch?

This is a common misconception. You don't need to be into Wicca or Paganism in order to cast white magic spells, nor do you need to be an experienced witch. And you don't need to have a spell cast by someone else on your behalf. white magic spells that you cast for yourself actually hold more power than a spell cast by someone else:

" The most important ingredient in a spell is emotion. You must want something to happen. You must want it with all your being, and through that desire, you will drive all your power into the magick. This is the reason that it is far better to do magick for yourself than to ask someone to do it for you. If you are doing a spell for another person there is no way that you are going to put the same amount of emotional drive into it that they could"

- Raymond Buckland, practising witch and respected authority on occult and supernatural matters. Quote extracted from his classic work, "Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft".

- How long do white magic spells take to work?

Providing your spell has been performed correctly, White Magic spells begin to work within a few days to a couple of weeks. It is generally advised that if results have not manifested within 4 weeks - one lunar cycle- that you re -work your spell. White magic spells may fail if done incorrectly or if performed when you are distracted or under the weather - it is important to remember that the success of magic spells depend on the energy and intent put into them. So be sure that you are in good health and determined frame of mind when you cast your spell.

- Should I keep my white magic spells work a secret?

Yes. Do not discuss your intent, your ceremony /procedures with anybody else. Not even in passing. Once the wheels of white magic spells work are in motion, it should not be discussed with anyone. Talking and discussing magickal matters may disturb the magickal energy and break the spell. If you slip up, things may not work, in which case you should begin your spell again 28 days -one lunar cycle-after having first performed it.
What is the link between white magic spells and the pentagram shape?

Contrary to popular belief, the pentagram is not a symbol of darkness, evil or sinister practices - it is first and foremost a symbol of protection, and is frequently used in magic spells work for this express purpose. You can read more about it's associations over at the meaning of the pentagram page.

Some important things to consider before casting white magic spells

White magic spells should only be performed from a basis of clear and altruistic intent. You must never selfishly or inconsiderately force your will on another person or situation. Gentle encouragement is the intent of white magic- not outright manipulation. For example, if you have broken up with someone who clearly does not wish to give things another go, using white magic spells to try and force a change of heart would be a form of psychic intimidation and may backfire on you. Similarly, using white magic spells to eliminate a rival would not be condoned if the rival in question was married or partnered to your intended - white magic spells should not be used in an attempt to break relationships apart.

We each have a conscience, and in your heart of hearts, you will instinctively know whether the motivations behind your intent are good or questionable: follow your intuitions, listen to your inner voice. When white magic spells are cast from a pure basis, the results will be as you hoped for. When magic spells are performed to force or manipulate an issue, things may well backfire on you -remember that what goes around, comes around...
