Instead of using books to find spells, can one write one’s own and how does one go about that?

Do you have to find spells in like books and things or can you create your own spells? if so is there a method of doing so?

Merry Meet!

Thank you for your question.

There are effectively four sources when it comes to spells: The internet, friends, books and self. When using spells that you have not written yourself (i.e. from the internet, friends and books), you should always check the spells properly to ensure that they are fit for purpose, that the correspondences etc. used are correct and that the spells will result in no harm. 

It is definitely far less time consuming to use spells written by another and if wisely chosen will be as successful as those that you have written yourself. In other words, there is nothing wrong with availing yourself of that which is kindly shared by others.

On the other hand…. Although writing one’s own spells may be hard work, it is certainly very rewarding from a creativity point of view. As you appear interested in following this route, I recommend the following simple steps when compiling your own, personalized spell:

  1. Decide on the intent of the spell.
  2. Plan your spell. This means writing the script.
  3. From the script, make a list of the ‘accessories’ you will require, i.e. ribbon, paper etc.
  4. Establish which moon phases, days, colors, incense, deities etc will support the intent.
  5. Put it all together and refine it.
  6. Audit your spell. This means, thoroughly checking that all the necessary elements are contained in the spell and double checking that no harm will result – directly and indirectly, intentional and unintentional.
  7. Refine your spell.
  8. Wait 24 hours. Then repeat the Audit.

I recommend using divination before casting any spell to check whether it is okay to do so.

Naturally, you can also take any existing spell and adapt it to better suit your own style and needs. You will need to follow the steps listed above in this case as well.

Whether to use home-grown spells, adapted spells or spells written by others is a matter of personal choice and creative ability. I suggest that you play around a bit to see which of the three appeals to you most!

Brightest Blessings!

    It is encouraging that anyone seek to do their own spells. You add more of your own energy by doing so.
    Rose is an absolutely outstanding teacher but I just wanted to insert something here that may help one focus their intent and the energy raised and that is to pick a symbolic action such as driving a nail..gradually tightening a knot around a dedicated item…planting something and watering it. This diffuses any preconceived notions or questions your mind may raise because it accepts it as a natural process or action. You are adding the ingredients to that process or action and constructing it on the astral level with the intent to manifest it into reality. It helps to relax too.. no strain…just relaaaax. Like staring at a flame…focus.

  4. I made a spell for the first time a couple of years ago. I didn’t even know what I was doing, I just made up a rhyme (a very poor one) and took some colorful candles (I looked up on the internet for the right colors for which purpose) and made a ritual to go with the rhyme/spell. I did like 3 at a time and I think they all worked but One worked TOO good. It freaked me out and I never made another– yet.

    The one that worked really good was to make the coworkers that didn’t like me show themselves to me. In the rhyme I put that they would do a specific action to reveal to me that they were the ‘enemy’. Well the next business day, I went to work and the girl I suspected who always smiled in my face walked by me doing exactly what I had put in the rhyme. She was the only one that actually did it and I suspected so many more. BUT the reason it really freaked me out was that it brought bad stuff.

    Turns out she knew that I liked the guy she was after and after she ‘revealed’ herself to me, the guy I was after started dating her and quickly got a nasty attitude toward me.

    I know this is because I made the spell with bad intent (not to hurt anyone, just to be prying about other peoples feelings) and I’m glad that I found out she didn’t like me but it wasnt worth it because they ended up happy and I was still alone then!

    I still have that spell somewhere unpacked in my boxes. If anyone wants it you can email me.

    I think if you write a spell, be careful and make sure you have clear, good intentions and also make sure the words are perfect so there can be no backfiring.

It all started when our teacher asked us to write poetry That was fine but ever since then i keep dreaming of rhymes and what seem to me like spells and since I tried meditating anytime i go to take a shower there is a high pitched whisper that circles me. :s
