    Casting A Spell? Here's How To Do It Right

    Spell casting has always been a thing of mystery that’s both frightening and intriguing. However, it doesn’t have to be that way anymore.

    Today, we’re going to explain how to cast a spell, it’s true purpose, and its history.

    The History Of Spell Casting

    Casting spells is as old as time itself; dating back to ancient cultures who used this practice as a way to control the elements. Even African and Native American cultures had wise men and women who were revered in their society for their ability to handle the power of the spirits.
    However, this ritual evolved during the rise of Christianity during the Roman period. Spells began to incorporate the practice of prayer to God and the use of the rosary beads or the cross. Moreover, throughout the Middle Ages, witchcraft or any other pagan activities were illegal. This period has become known as the Salem witch trials.

    Today, witchcraft is becoming increasingly popular since more people are looking into the supernatural world. Even in entertainment, witches and wizards are portrayed as powerful and likable beings that can control the elements and save mankind.

    Casting rituals can also include the use of dream catchers, crystal balls, herb pouches, and tarot cards.

    How Do I Cast A Spell? 

    Before you cast your first spell, you must first understand the fundamental principles behind it.

    It’s important to know that casting a spell is the art of identifying, raising, and directing your energy at a specific outcome or intention. Therefore, it should never be done out of malice or with the desire to hurt yourself or others. You should always consider the law of threefold. This law states that the energy you put out will return to you with three times more power.

    The reason most spells fail is that the caster is often too focused on testing them out. Therefore, the intention is never truly set and any possible benefit is lost in experimentation. In addition, the caster could be asking for something impossible. Keep in mind this practice requires confidence in your abilities and plenty of faith.

    Also, there’s a misconception that to perform a ritual, one must own the right tools. However, the key ingredient to any ritual is magical intention. Moreover, any object can become energetically charged. Basic ingredients such as spices, candles, and oils can be powerful.

    Below, we’re going to discuss various casting techniques and how energy is transferred during the ritual.

    Using Sympathetic Magic

    Before we get into sympathetic magic, you must understand how quantum entanglement works.

    Simply put, this refers to the way particles interact in such a state that each can’t be described independently, even when separated. For example, a piece of jewelry worn by you will always remain attached to you in a certain way, no matter how separate it becomes.

    Therefore, you can imagine how powerful a lock of hair or fingernail clippings of another person would be. 

    During a sympathetic magic ritual, the practitioner will use a voodoo doll filled with hair, clothes, or anything else that comes from the one the ritual is directed to. After binding and blessing the doll, any intention can be cast upon it, which will then affect the person.

    Using Different Arcane Practices

    Some other methods of spell casting include:

    • Tarot - During a tarot reading, the reader is using evocative symbol language to communicate with the unconscious mind. This allows the cards to become a focal point during a casting ritual
    • Incantation - An incantation is based on repeating a series of words rather than acting out the action. It’s done by chanting mantras or other types of chants. It can be very powerful when done correctly
    • Divination - In divination, the reader attempts to foretell future events or discover hidden interpretations from symbols or omens. This is done through practices such as reading tea leaves or crystal ball gazing

    Using Sigils

    We can use sigils during spell casting and as an integral part of rituals. We can also use them as good luck charms and for positive affirmations. It’s a symbolic representation of an intention, word, energy. When one’s activated, it helps with manifestation and change. It does this by sending a message to your subconscious mind and spirit, telling you what you need in life. 

    While there are multiple ways of creating a sigil, the most simple way is to write out an intention statement such as ‘I am healthy’. Remove all the vowels and repeating letters. Then use the leftover letters to create a drawing or a symbol of your choice.

    You can hang your sigil in a visible place, or cast it away as a symbol of letting go.


    How you perform a spell is entirely up to you. However, it’s vital that you begin with the correct intention. Additionally, make sure you have full confidence in your abilities. There are many methods out there, so try experimenting and seeing which ritual works the best for you.
