As a new spell caster you should always read many of the helpful books and guides that give directions for casting a spell so that you gain a complete understanding about casting spells before attempting to do so.
In order to achieve your desired result with spell casting, a strong and solid foundation of understanding and knowledge is essential.
Casting spells is considered both a fine art as well as a metaphysical science. Some people are misguided when it comes to how the particulars of a spell work. Spells of course cannot do things like change an ex-boyfriend into a toad or transform Kool-Aid into wine and such.
The most common types of spells usually consist on bringing love into your life, enhancing traits like courage, helping to heal illnesses, increasing prosperity in your life, weight loss spell casting and things like that.
Spells work based on what is called the law of attraction, the metaphysical law in which physical existence originates in the non-physical or astral plane.
To create and develop your own desired effect around yourself in the astral in just a way that causes it to manifest in reality, you can generally use colors, symbols, herbs, crystals, items, candles and such which correlate to the purpose of the spells being cast.
It is always a good idea to write your own spells, but if you are going to use a spell that was written by somebody else, then you should always try to change something about it even if it is just swapping one kind of herb for another of the same effect, or the wording of the incantation in order to give it a uniqueness to you.
The most important thing to remember in casting spells for beginners is that one must never cast a spell aimed at causing harm to somebody else in any way, or manipulating the will of another to do something they would never do on their own. Remember – ‘what goes around comes around’ and with spells even more so! You certainly do not want to bring bad things back upon yourself!
It is essential to be extremely careful of the wording you use, and do not forget to use a spell binder so that you can prevent the spell from reversing and protect against other issues that could arise.
Possibly the most important part is to believe in it, if there is doubt than it cannot be done.
