How to Cast Powerful Spells That Actually Work to Make Your Life Better

Effective spells are important in Witchcraft. You can try to cast a spell to become a mermaid, but odds are, it probably won't work.

Learn to Cast Spells That Work!

Learning to cast spells requires understanding on how Witchcraft works. One thing you learn when you properly study Witchcraft is that some spells work and some don't.

The basic premise behind spell casting is that it stems from psychology and nature. The act of casting spells works on your brain by 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. Casting also lends metaphysical energy, which we raise and direct toward the goal when we use spells.

Now that we see how casting actually works, let’s look at why some of the more popularly sought-after magic spells have no effect, and compare them to the spells that are more effective and realistic.

Guidelines for Effective Spell Casting

Cast spells that are:

  • Realistic (and don't defy nature)
  • Internally transformative (rather than externally transformative)
  • Directed towards concrete things that you can control
  • Focused on achievable desires

Transformation Spells

What Doesn't Work:

More often than we think, people long to use spells to make themselves something they’re not. For example, some people seek a spell to become a mermaid, a werewolf, or a cat. Unfortunately, spells like these are impossible, even for Witchcraft. Magic does not work against the laws of physics—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 it's better to accept the 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 dangerous and are not worth trying, so don’t take the risk!

What Does Work:

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

Spells to Change Your Appearance (Drastically)

What Doesn't Work:

Some people are content to stay human. However, some people 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 standard of beauty set by airbrushed models in magazines. This is a fantasy, in my opinion. Out of desperation, people may turn to Witchcraft.

No one spell will dramatically and unnaturally alter your appearance. You can’t cast a spell 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.

What Does Work:

If you want a spell that works, use a spell for a more minor, natural change and then work toward a major change. For example, instead of trying to lose 40 pounds overnight and getting discouraged when it doesn’t happen, find a spell to help you gain good exercise habits and the diet that you need to banish food cravings. Then be patient. It will take time.

If you’re seriously unhappy with your looks, find a certain spell to help change your perspective. Using this spell may help you become less critical of yourself and ultimately more self-accepting.

Can You Win the Lottery With a Spell?

What Doesn't Work:

Everyone seems to want a "real spell to win the lottery." Oh, if only it were that easy; if the right spell existed, one could win the lottery and be a billionaire just like that. Unfortunately, magic doesn’t work so easily.

Imagine this: there’s a 10 million dollar bill on the sidewalk. Fifty million people run, and all pull it 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 use a spell for lottery winnings. So many people send energy (casting spells deliberately or sending energy unwittingly) to the same target that as a result, the energies negate each other.

What Does Work:

Be more specific—cast spells for better jobs, better pay, to sell your wares, or to expand your business. Use a spell that will help you improve your investments, control your spending habits, and pay off your debts. Don’t cast spells for major changes all at once, because there are too many factors—the energy required for a major spell has to stretch too far and cover too much ground. Cast something 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.

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 Wish Spells

What Doesn't Work:

Who needs a genie in a bottle if you could simply cast spells to grant your wishes? We wouldn’t be limited to three! Sadly, it doesn’t work that way. Wish spells are unfortunately 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 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 are a million things to wish for, so if you are not focused, the energy scatters, weakens, and doesn’t know what channel to take. It becomes useless.

Another crucial factor for casting spells is psychology. You have to see yourself as already having achieved the goal. To cast a spell for wishes, you must see yourself as wishing for your goal. Otherwise, you end up putting yourself in a perpetual state of wishing and never having.

What Does Work:

In order to cast a spell that works, don’t use one for wishing at all. Focus the spell on the actual need or desire that you have. And again, as mentioned above, it needs to be something realistic—not some achievement that works outside the laws of nature.

Use Your Head!

Even Witchcraft and spell casting are still subject to the rules of nature. When planning your spell casting and magical workings, keep these tips and caveats in mind for success. As nice as it would be to merely wave a wand to grant our wishes, it’s just not possible.

Yes it's possible to cast spells on others... normally I don't try to manipulate others without permission unless I deem it necessary but there are times when it is necessary so it's up to you to judge.
