I briefly covered why you should write your own spells and rituals in one of my previous posts, Why Magick Fails. This will be a relatively short post, but this is a topic I’ve found myself preaching often, so I feel compelled to write a more detailed reasoning behind it. I believe you should always write your own magick, even when you are just starting out. When you write your own spells and rituals, you pour your energies into the magick, and thus, increasing its accuracy and strength. Also, writing your own magick is the absolute best way to find the perfect spell or ritual for you.
To get the results you want, or any results at all, it is almost a necessity (in my opinion, anyway) to write your own spells and rituals. When you pick and use a pre-written spell, your intent and reasoning can be, and usually is, different than the original writer. You may find a really interesting prosperity spell that someone had great results with, but when you cast it, you didn’t get any results. This can happen, even if you had followed the spell to a ‘T’. Even if you both did the spell to expect a raise in your current job, if you wanted to get a raise due to you expecting a child, and the original author performed the spell because they were behind on bills, the spell is unlikely to work (or have the same results) for both of you.
You should also write your own spells for convenience. You may be thinking it’d be more convenient to find a pre-written ritual, but that actually isn’t the case. It can be a bit difficult to find a ritual that not only seems like it would work but also one that fits your needs. A lot of the decently looking rituals I’ve found require items and ingredients that can be hard to find or expensive. This can be a major problem, especially if you are a beginner or are on a tight budget. But if you write your own rituals, you can only use items and ingredients that you have on hand. It is also convenient to write your own rituals if you like to perform your rituals in a certain way, like using a certain language (like Latin or Gaelic), reciting only chants, or any other type of personal customization. It may seem convenient to just translate it to your prefered language, but you may not like the way it sounds. Writing your own rituals can eliminate the hassle of translating and changing a ritual.
When you’re thinking of writing your own spells and rituals, the thought of doing so can be very daunting. But you shouldn’t worry, as it is easier than it seems. You can find a few different spells or rituals and combine them into one what works for you. You can also find a spell or ritual and establish a layout that you’d like for your magick. When you write your own magickal workings, you can use your creativity to add any and all personal bits you like to add to when performing magick.
Keep in mind, all of my posts are based on my opinions that I have gathered from my research. You may disagree or have something to add. Please do so kindly in the comments.
Blessed be, brothers and sisters.
