Over the last couple of years or so I've seen litterally hundreds of spells, from those written in e-books to those published on the various websites across the world.
My own personal opinion regarding spells, and it is just my own opinion, is that for maximum effect they should come from your own heart, that's you. I have plenty of books of my own with loads of spells in them but to be honest I've never felt the compulsion to use any of them because for me, they just don't feel right.
I appreciate that not everyone has the gift or insight in how to create their own spells and so have no other alternative but to seek one out from a website or some other place on the internet or from a book. This is perfectly good for anyone to do and I've heard stories that some of these actually work well, if this is the only way forward then you need to just go ahead and do what feels right.
For those of you that do want to go ahead and try and write your own spells then here's just a few pointers to be getting on with.
1 - Visualise what you want the spell to do for you, most of the power within the spell comes from the visualisation and intent.
2 - Write everything down, it doesn't need to be poetic although it does sometimes help
3 - Never write a spell that's directed at anyone in particular, remember the Wiccan rule - An it harm none, do what you will.
4 - As with number three above, remember the three fold law, whatever you give out will come back times three.
There are many other things that can be incorporated into spell work such as doing a particular spell during the right phase of the moon, using inscence etc, etc but we'll talk about this another time.
