Before you write your affirmations, spells or do any result-oriented magic working, give your concept a reality test. Write it on a paper and imagine you have already achieved what you wanted. How would that make you feel? Is that what you really want? Weigh all the pros and cons. The point is that the Universe has no sense of humor and it is not selective. Each thought has a potential to materialize sooner or later. The thought with the most energy, positive or negative, will materialize. After considering this, you will probably have to re-think and re-write your affirmations or Wicca spells – otherwise there’s always a possibility you can harm yourself.
So why you need all this circle casting, magical attributes and spells in Wicca? The Universe loves symbolic gestures. Each spell or action you perform helps you concentrating on the thought and binding the energy. In Wicca you don’t cast a spell to impress others or to pretend you’re a magician of some kind.
A Wicca spell is very similar to a prayer – a result-oriented direction of intent. It is all within your thoughts, within your consciousness.
Even if it is the best spell on the Earth, it won’t work without cladding it in a form of thought. The result of a spell is just a materialized thought.
Some wiccans won’t probably like my scientific approach to Wicca, but the truth is that magi ck, if you want to call it that way, is an exact science, that follows some simple rules.
An extra notice should be given about negative spells or black magick (as they like to call it). There is no black magick. It is extremely hard to perform a negative spell towards other people because you need a strong and clear intent to make a spell work. If you are angry or full of thoughts of revenge, your mind is not clear and you cannot direct your intent. The other reason why black magick doesn’t work (or if it does, its result is not permanent) is that the Universe has a protection system in place. The three-fold law makes sure that all the harm comes back three-fold to the source, the author of the bad spell. There is no exception to that!
Also make sure you don’t use negative statements. Now look at these two affirmations: “I am not failing” or “I am successful”. The way information system of the Universe works, it can discard the negative statement and leave you filing your aura with this affirmation “I am failing”… That’s why you should always use positive statements in Wicca spells and affirmations. “I get rid of the fear” instead of “I don’t have fear” etc.
