Set aside a room for your magical work. Decorate it with things that
put you in a magical mood. Remember to use things that stimulate all
five of your physical senses. Some obvious things would be the use of
appropriate colors for sight, incense for scent, music for hearing,
wines for taste, and textures for feel.
If you do not have a room you can set aside exclusively for your
magical work, then choose a room that can be locked while you do your
work. This will allow you to work undisturbed. In any case, you
should clean your work area periodically with a purifying
powder/floorwash to keep away negative vibrations.
Set up an altar to be used as your worktable. It's size and shape
should be those that appeal to you. Placing candles and other items
that assist you to concentrate on the work at hand is a good
practice. Some people like to cover their altar with a white cloth
and place fresh cut flowers on it every day.
Always use the best candles, oils, and incenses that you can afford,
or make your own, for scrimping on materials has a negative effect on
the subconscious. Don't forget that the subconscious is very good at
making do with raw materials that it can shape to its own use.
Never cast a spell until you have a clear and concise picture of what
it is you wish to accomplish. This ties in with the saying "Be
careful what you wish for, you just might get it."
Always ground out any extra energy you raise for the spell, and bind
the spell so that it expires within the pre-determined amount of
time. Once you have cast the spell, do not discuss it with any one
until after it has worked. Most spells peter out because the person
who cast it boasts about it to so many people, that the spell is
robbed of power before it has a chance to work. The ancient bond
placed on the magician was to dare, to know and to keep silent.
Above all, at all times, remember the Rede: "An ye harm none, do what
you will." You do not know all the effects of your spell, therefore,
use magic sparingly, if at all.
Because of the very nature of Magic, each working should be highly
individualised and personal. Even if following a traditional spell,
it should be tailored to your specific needs to be most effective
for you. Understanding the basics of Spell Construction will enable
you to formulate your own specific, effective spells for any purpose
Preliminary planning is necessary. The very first step is to decide
precisely what your desired end result is to be. Before you can
start, you must decide where you are going. You must be very
(See red text listed below for list of times to work with the moon)
Flowing with these currents will make your magickal work much easier.
Remember to plan your project for a time of uninterrupted privacy.
It is important that you have no distractions. Generally speaking,
it is best to work as late at night as possible. A time when there
is less frantic energy is most appropriate. You might consider
Midnight or later.
In choosing a place to do your magickal working pay particular
attention to your needs, for you must be comfortable. Your place
should be private, quiet and secure. If at all possible, set aside
a special place for this purpose only. An unused room, a special
Scorner of your bedroom, a quiet, secluded spot in your garden. A
place that is yours. A place that you can come to whenever need
arises and that is as free from intrusion of others as possible.
Prior to the night of your magickal working, gather together the
things that you will need. All of the things used are tools. They
have no inherent magic. They are to help you create a mood. If
correctly made and used, they will trigger primitive responses from
deep within you. They should be chosen with care.
Consider the purpose of your ritual and choose your tools
accordingly. If your magic is to be sexual, your candles, oils,
incenses and so forth, should bring forth a sexual response. If the
desired result of your Magic is Tranquillity, then the tools should
make you feel calm, peaceful and serene. Any candles you might use
should not have commercially added fragrances as these may not be
appropriate for your working.
Prior to your ritual, prepare yourself and your equipment by any
means necessary to clean and purify. Historically, people have
fasted, followed meticulous and detailed bathing practices,
practised chastity and used many other methods.
Most often a Ritual Bath is the preferred method. A bath frequently
utilising candlelight, fragrant herbs, bath salts or sensuous oils.
A sumptuous hot bath, special bathing preparations and appropriate
lighting, combined, can create the soothing effect which will help
in the very important step of relaxing and clearing the mind completely
of all mundane thoughts and experiences of the day. Your ritual
Bath should, also, begin to set the specific vibrations conducive to
your purpose into motion. You must not only cleanse and purify but
must, also, begin to create the type of energy necessary.
Once your purification process has been accomplished, you are now
ready to begin. Proceed to the special place you have previously
chosen in which to perform your magic. If at all possible, you
should make use of the primitive responses set into motion by a well
chosen piece of music. Your music should start slowly and build to
a rousing climax.
As you use your oils, light your candle or incense (or utilise any
other tool you have chosen), you should begin to further intensify
the energy that you have set into motion around you. A high degree
of intensity is vitally important.
The Altered State of Consciousness that you must reach is not a
meditative state. Anything that interferes with your ability to
concentrate upon, reach and control the high energy state necessary
to perform magic should be avoided. Such as, screaming children, a
sink full of dirty dishes, use of alcohol or drugs, etc.
Do not scatter your energy by attempting to do more than one
magickal working at a time.
Remember that Magic is the manipulation of energy, a thought is a
form of energy and a visualisation is an even stronger form of
energy. Your visualisation can be a method used to intensify
further and direct your will. Your visualisation can be the method
by which you control the magickal energy you have produced.
You must know what you want. You must see it. You must feel the
high energy flow. You must direct it.
One of the most important elements in the practice of any form of
Magic is the Universal Law of Cause and Effect. This means that
whatever you do (or don't do) you cause something to happen.
The most important consideration is the Universal Law of
Retribution. This means that no matter what you do it comes back to
you in like kind.
It is the nature of things that as you send something out it gains
momentum, so that, by the time it comes back to you, it is three
times stronger. If you do something nice for someone, someone will
do something nicer for you.
It is important, also, that you choose your time carefully. You
should take into consideration all Astrological implications, energy
currents and Moon phases.
