Learn to Cast Spells That Work!

Learning to cast spells requires a bit of understanding of how Witchcraft works. One thing you learn when you study Witchcraft properly is that casting spells can’t do everything.

The basic premise behind spell casting is that it stems from psychology and nature. It works on your brain, setting the stage for undertaking your goals. The nature part comes from natural things we use – colors, scents, sounds, herbs, stones, etc.—to aid focus and stimulate the mind. They also lend metaphysical energy, which we raise and direct toward the goal when we cast spells.

Given the premises of how casting spells actually works, let’s look at why some of the more popularly sought after magic spells have no effect. And let’s look at what you can do to cast spells that are more effective.

Casting Mermaid Spells

People long to cast spells to make themselves something they’re not. They want a spell to become a mermaid, a werewolf, a cat. These things are impossible, even for Witchcraft. Magic does not work against the laws of physics like that. It’s subject to the laws of nature.

You will always be what you were born to be—a human being. I don’t mean to burst anyone’s bubble, but its better you accept facts. There are many bogus spells that promise to turn you into all sorts of exciting things. None of them work. Some of them are actually dangerous and are not worth trying, so don’t take risks for nothing!

If you want to cast spells that work, cast spells to help you become something you can actually be. Wishing you’re someone else usually means you’re unhappy with your life, or long for more excitement. Cast spells to help you become the realistic person you want to be—to improve your talents, your social skills, make you a better student. Cast spells to work towards adventures you can actually take, like traveling.

To cast spells requires a great deal of study and practice; articles like mine are good reading, but you should really dive into some books that cover the topics in depth if you want to advance.

 

Casting Spells to Change Your Appearance (Drastically)

Along the same lines of wanting to be another species, some people are content to stay human. They want to cast spells to look different. Society puts a great deal of pressure on us to look a certain way and measure up to a certain (fantasy, in my opinion) standard of beauty set by airbrushed models in magazines. Out of desperation, people turn to Witchcraft.

There is no way to cast spells that will dramatically and unnaturally alter your appearance. You can’t cast spells and wake up 40 pounds lighter the next day. You can’t change your race or your eye color. You can’t cast spells to make you taller or shorter.

If you want to cast spells that work, cast spells for minor, natural changes and then work toward them. For example, instead of trying to lose 40 lbs overnight and getting discouraged when it doesn’t happen, cast spells to help you gain the good exercise habits and diet that you need, or to banish food cravings. Then be patient- it will take time.

Here is an example of a more realistic weight loss spell for you to check out.

If you’re seriously unhappy with your looks, you may need to cast spells to help you be more self-accepting, to be less critical of yourself.

Cast Spells for Attainable Wealth

So what if you increase your odds from .001 in a billion to .01? It's still an unlikely outcome. Seek wealth from realistic sources, such as your work and efforts.

Casting Spells to Win the Lottery

Everyone seems to want “real spells to win the lottery”. Oh, were it only so—if we could cast spells to win the lottery I’d be a billionaire. But magic doesn’t work like that.

Imagine this: there’s a 10 million dollar bill on the sidewalk. And 50 million people run up, grab it, and pull all in different directions at once. What happens? That 10 million dollar bill is nothing but shreds.

That’s what happens to the energy when you cast spells for lottery winnings. So many people send energy (they cast spells deliberately or send energy unwittingly) to the same target that they negate each other.

If you want to cast spells that work, cast spells for things that will improve your finances. Be more specific—cast spells for better jobs, better pay, to sell your wares or expand your business. Cast spells to help you improve your investments, to control your own spending habits and pay off your debts. Don’t cast spells for major changes all at once. There are so many factors, the energy has to stretch too far, cover too much ground. Cast spells with tightly focused, narrow goals. It’s better to do several small workings, each focused on a minor thing, than to cast spells for one, big, life-changing goal.

Casting Wish Spells

Who needs a genie in a bottle if you could just cast spells to give you wishes? We wouldn’t be limited to three! Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. Wish spells are just wasted efforts.

First, consider the energy. The most fundamental rule of casting spells that work is to focus your energy like a laser. You then need to create a channel (learn more about that here) to bring your goal to you. Casting spells for a wish doesn’t work because when you send out that energy, it doesn’t know where to go. There’s a million things to wish for, so the energy scatters and weakens. It doesn’t know what channel to take. It becomes useless.

Another very important factor when you cast spells is psychological. You have to see yourself as already having achieved the goal. Casting spells for wishes, you see yourself as wishing for your goal. You end up putting yourself in a perpetual state of wishing, never having.

If you want to cast spells that work, don’t cast spells for wishes at all. Focus the spell on the actual need or desire that you have. And again, like mentioned above, it needs to be something realistic—not some achievement that works outside the laws of nature.

To Cast Spells That Really Work

Spell Casting Guidelines
Cast spells with realistic goals possible in nature
Cast spells for transformations within more than external changes
Cast spells toward concrete things you can work for and control
Cast spells with a focused, narrow goals

Cast Spells Using your Head

When planning your spell casting and magical workings, keep these tips and caveats in mind for success. As nice as it would be to be able to just wave a wand to get anything we want, it’s just not possible. Even Witchcraft and spell casting don’t work like that.

I have written several times about the importance of finding a niche as a writer and developing that niche over time. Since this is quite obviously a very specialized niche, I'm wondering how you are doing? Not in terms of money, but do you see your views growing from Google? Are you starting to see your niche noticed by more people? I hope so because you are a very good writer.

Hi Billy, thanks. Coming from you that's quite a compliment. Funny you should ask that now, as I've had a recent revelation.

Actually when I first started HP I was publishing sporadically. I gained a few followers and got little traffic, and mostly from HP followers interested in the topic. Then I got sick over the summer and didn't publish anything, my traffic was low already but went to almost nil. Then I started publishing more regularly and my traffic picked up-- nothing great, but steady. And it seems I got about equal views from HP and the search engines. It would go up and down-- I get more traffic around the holidays when people are looking for "Wiccan" ways to celebrate.

Then I read someone's advice on the forums to go to Google and Bing and confirm my profile and set it to 'web crawl' more frequently. I did that last week and my traffic from Google and Bing have doubled in the last 3 days! I don't understand that stuff very well (when I work I usually just write for people, I don't mess around with their websites or marketing) but it seemed to really do the trick.

For anyone interested these are the instructions I was told to follow: http://hubpages.com/community/Learning-Center-How-...

I guess the next few weeks will be very telling, which is why I'm publishing a hub almost every day now to try to keep up the momentum, and I'm trying to follow HP's recommendation for creating "stellar hubs".

Glad to hear your traffic has doubled...that's great! I have to check that out.

People have such distorted views about witchcraft and I love that your hubs set the record straight! Great writing and I always enjoy them!

Thanks Catgypsy. I'm glad you enjoy my hubs.

And yes, definitely check out that crawl thing. Seems to be very useful, but only time will tell.

I couldn't disagree with this nonsense more than i already do. You have no hope for anything do you probably not.

That's fine mnoi. You're free to disagree with whatever you wish. If you think you can turn yourself into a fish or werewolf, then don't mind my skepticism.

As for me having hope-- well, you'd have to be more specific. I don't have hope in things like mermaids and lottery fixes, no. But I don't need hope in those things; reality is good enough.

Thanks for your comment!

Actually it is quite possible to change your eye color. I've done it several times. My husband and daughter noticed right away (w/no priming) as did my best friend. First time it lasted a day and took a bit of meditation. Second time I did it- took about a min of focus. It was during sex and my husband noticed immediately. Second time also changed my eye color from dark blue/grey, to turquoise, then to dark green w/a hint of yellow. I took pics and everything. Ironically that one lasted almost 3 days instead of one.

Btw, I did want to add that I do very much actually enjoy your posts. I think they're often more informative than most bloated 101 books out today. The way you describe how to raise energy, spell cast in general, cast a circle, etc. I just know what I and others around me have seen me literally manifest. A car also comes to mind. We needed a second one really bad and I cast the spell w/a specific idea of the type of car I thought would be reasonably possible (nothing brand new, over 10K, etc.), left it open as to how we would acquire it w/o harm to another, and a month later my brother-in-law gave us his car. It was already paid for, he wouldn't take any money for it-said he felt compelled (by the lord- he's a Christian and his beliefs are obv different than mine making it all the more amazing). But I def like the way you present your info.

Thanks so much for your kind comments, I appreciate it. My goal is to help people gain a more in-depth understanding of Wicca and to bring in different ideas, so I'm very flattered by your comment.

As far as the eye-color changing, I don't believe it and in 25 years have yet to see one person actually accomplish it. It wasn't even "a thing" until that silly movie The Craft came out. It defies my understanding of Witchcraft and how magic works in the universe. The closest I believe anyone can come to it is 'the power of belief' can make someone think their eyes are changed. Eye color can look different colors under different lighting conditions and with different clothes/colors surrounding you as well. I can't tell you what your experiences were, you have to judge for yourself, but this is my opinion on the topic.

Thanks for stopping by!


anon 2 years ago

But do you think we have the power to manifest things ourselves? I don't think any one single person can accurately define exactly how magic works. Consider in different cultures and religions where magic is practiced, there's no one universally agreed way. If you can manipulate energy and everything is energy (and we're already defying the laws of natural science in many forms of magic), it doesn't really seem impossible. If you believe the power resides in my/the ability to manipulate another's thoughts into believing what I want them to see, as opposed to manifesting the change, wouldn't that seem like the tougher of the two (manipulating others' thoughts and in some ways their free will- their ability to see what they should compared to what I want them to- if I'm using your theory)? Btw, I did take the pictures in the exact same condition. No makeup, same clothes, same room, no filter and back to back to back pictures from the same angle. I understand why you're skeptical and I'm not trying to convince you I did it- just curious as to why you'd see that type of magic as more difficult.

Hi anon. I do think we have the power to manifest things... I just don't believe everything can be manifested by magic. I believe magic, like everything in nature, has its own limitations. One of the limits I believe it has is in breaking laws of physics. This is my experience-- I have never seen magic actually change an eye color, hair color, make someone thinner, taller, shorter, or make them into another creature other than human.

I agree you could probably convince someone that your eye colors change, but that perception would exist in the person's mind-- an illusion. I don't personally think the pigment in your eyes can actually be changed by will, or that it's something the camera would capture (if it's a person's illusion, the camera shouldn't capture it at all, as the camera can't be swayed by belief). Having spent some time as a photographer I know how eye colors can look easily different in photos, even just by small differences in the room lighting or the shadows cast by the angles of someone's face or the color of one's shirt. I had a friend who's eyes would look a totally different just by putting her hair back (the roots were blonde but the tips were red; the blond hair made her eyes look amber, the reddish hair near the tips made them look greener). I am not going to judge your experience because I wasn't there, I didn't take the photos or evaluate the conditions under which they were taken.While I've seen a lot of claims-- and I'm sure some people sincerely believe it (maybe even contributing to their own power of belief, or the power of perception of others) -- I have yet to see anyone successfully change the physical pigment.

I'm not going to try and convince you either, I respect that people have to make their own calls on such things, and I respect that your experiences differ from my own.

And I agree, one person cannot probably ever know all magic's secrets. I don't claim to be that person, anyway. I write my articles based on my opinion and experiences, which I say on my profile page are sometimes controversial opinions. I understand that others disagree with me, in part or in whole, and I encourage people to read a variety of opinions and formulate their own.

Again, thanks for your comments, good to 'see' you.


Christy (aka anon) 2 years ago

Oh I totally understand where you're coming from and I don't feel like your opinions are rude in any way btw :) Since I don't believe one can know all there is to know about magic and/or how it truly works either, we only have our own experiences, theories, etc. to go by- and I make room for others' as well. Thank you for your open dialogue instead of being dismissive.

Trust me, coming from a background in science-I myself understand the disbelief of bending the laws of physics. I haven't changed my hair color, weight and/or basically any other physical feature via magic and I understand the "fluff" (for lack of a better word) behind casting such spells. I will say I don't consider what I did a spell, per se...since it was solely mental, but I still get the gist of not casting these types of spells. I don't cast ones like you mentioned in your article. Perhaps the change of eye color for a short period of time isn't quite as drastic as a permanent change and/or an extremely drastic (losing 20lbs in one day or increasing height by many inches for instance) change, therefore appearing more of a possibility to one from a mental standpoint.

Thanks Christy! Good to see you. I'm never going to invalidate someone else's experiences. I can only say what has been my own. This is how we learn from each other, and it's good we can share. I appreciate you adding your insights for others who might stumble upon this article as it may help them more than I did.
