Magick: What it is and how to do it

Magick is the ability to tap into the universal force and bring its power to bear in order to create changeThe Rules of Good
Examine your motives in casting the spell. Make sure you are not trying to assert your will over another to his detriment. Spells for revenge and control are bad magick and will rebound on you. Remember the Wiccan Rede? Whatever you put out, will be drawn back. So if you put out bad energy, it will come back to haunt you. Always endeavour to find positive ways to solve your problem or attain your desire.
Visualize your intent. In other words, what is it that you are trying to achieve through the spell? Be specific in both your intent and the wording you choose when you perform the spell.
Find the right spell or method. Don't choose a spell that instructs you to, say, run naked across a field with a honey-glazed walnut in your navel and bells on your toes because if you feel foolish performing a spell then your concentration will be shot. And concentration is of paramount importance.
Feel your power. Know that you own it. Focus it and send it out to do your bidding and achieve your goal.

How To Do It
(from Sheila O'Sullivan's Book of Shadows)
The single most important thing to do when performing a magickal working is to focus your energy. Do it and do it well!! Visualize your intention, visualize your goal. Visualize the achievement of your goal. The more clearly you visualize it, the better. Believe that you will make it happen. See it happening. Now go! Use the force of your will to make it happen.
In order to obtain the intense level of focus you must have to perform a successful working, you must quiet your mind before you begin. You know those random thoughts that come into your mind unbidden? If they do that while you are in the middle of a working they will distract you and lessen the effectiveness of the spell. Of you have a problem with focus, there is a technique that you should perform before you begin casting the spell. It should help you enter a meditative state and calm that internal "chatter."
Sit down before your altar in a comfortable position.
Take long, slow breaths. As you exhale, envision the tension leaving your body carried by your breath.
Light a candle. Gaze at it. Then make a statement, either out loud or to yourself about what you see (such as "I see the glow of the candle flame").
Make a statement about what you hear. (You might say, for example, "I hear the crickets chirping outside my window.")
Make a statement about what you can feel (such as "I can feel the cool night breeze against the back of my neck").
Allow your eyes to close and then describe what you see in your mind.
Many beginners think that they can just have the spell open in front of them and read from it as though from a recipe book. The spell just isn't going to be vital and effective if you do it that way because magick requires infinitely more concentration than baking a cake! When you do a working, you should try to memorize it beforehand.
Another point to remember is that most often, in order to obtain optimum results, a spell must be performed several or many times. In most cases, once just doesn't do the trick nearly as well as when you repeat it over and over again.
When you are a newcomer to The Craft, spells written by others are a good place to start. Eventually as you become more experienced and adept, you will modify these for your own purposes. Eventually they will evolve into something all your own and you will be able to create you own workings.
One thing to remember is that magick seldom offers you fulfillment on a silver platter but it will make fulfillment possible. Once magick has opened the door for you, it is up to you to walk through it!

Here you will find many spells. I will add as time permits. Please, feel free to use any of these spells.
Moon Spells:
Moon Spell 1
This spell is used for gaining the favor of the powers of the Moon. It is an excellent spell for adding vitality to your life.
On the eve of a full moon, close to midnight, dip the tip of your right index finger into either Moon Oil or natural vegetable oil and trace a pentacle on a flat surface, such as a tabletop or counter top. Light five candles and place one at each point of the pentacle. In the center of the pentacle, place a small glass of your favorite beverage.
Recite the following incantation:
"I call to the Moon
That her powers cast upon this night
Be caught and kept
Consumed in faith
Revered and praised
Used for the good intent
That no evil shall pass
Lest all be undone
And this spell be for naught
Bright moon
May your blessings and energy
Live within me"
Quickly, drink the beverage and starting at any point, extinguish the candles in a clockwise rotation.
The spell is done.

Moon Spell 2
A spell to invoke the powers of the Moon upon a personal action.
On the night of a full moon, near midnight, draw a circle on a flat surface, such as a table or counter top, with Moon Oil or fresh rainwater. In the center of the circle, place a single lighted candle.
Close your eyes and picture in your mind's eye that action which you need or desire to take and upon which you wish to invoke the moon's powers for assistance in the deed. Keep your eyes closed and count silently and slowly to seven. Upon reaching seven, open your eyes and repeat the following incantation while staring into the flame of the candle:

"Spirit and power of the moon
Guardian of the night
Hider of secret things
Keeper of the second watch
Look upon me
And this thing I wish to do
Extend your hand and hold fast
To this deed that it may not fail
Lest your presence be ignored
And your aid held worthless
In the eyes of the ignorant
And the eyes of the wise
This of you I ask
That it may be so."
Extinguish the candle. The spell is done.

A Fire Spell of Protection
Sit or stand before any fire. Look into the flames (or flame, if using a candle). Visualize the fire bathing you with glowing, protective light. The fire creates a flaming, shimering sphere around you. If you wish, say the following or similar words:
 Craft the spell in the fire;
Craft it well; Weave it higher.
Weave it now of shining flame;
None shall come to hurt or maim.
None shall pass this fiery wall;
None shall pass No, none at all. "
Repeat this simple yet effective ritual every day when
A Simple Salt Ring of Protection
Preparations Mix together 1 part salt to 3 parts water. The salt can be any variety, if you have an affinity to the ocean, use sea salt. Pure spring water is reccomended, but tap water will do if that is all you have. Ritual Circle the area to be protected splashing the salt-water as you go around. Do this three times. While doing each circle, repeat three times,
"Thrice around and thrice repeat, all evil does this ring defeat."
See the sheild come up as you finsish the last circle. It is done. This ritual should be done after the area to be protected has been cleansed and purified in some fashion.
Get rid of the Negative Energies
Get a large white candle, the kind that drips wax, and set it up on a tray. Affix to it a photograph or other image of the person you wish to bind. Make a ring of sea salt around it. Make a second ring with protective herbs. Fill the rest of the tray with images that represent what you are binding the person from: pictures of your family, keys to your house, legal documents, whatever. If the problem is too complex for images, write what the person is bound from on slips of paper and place them around the candle. Papyrus, or paper made from cotton or linen work best for this. Use red ink if you are angry, purple ink if you are sad. Wrap the candle and the image with black thread (linen, if possible). Invoke Isis and Linda, the Binder With Linen Thread. Say out loud what you are binding the person from. Light the candle and leave it burn until the wax begins to drip over the thread and image. Burn it every day for a week, until the image is thick with wax. Use this as a meditation device to direct your will to binding the person.
A Warding
The following is an easy warding ritual for your home or just one room. You must admit that there are those who would use magic in unwise ways. A simple way I've found of dealing with such attempts is to ward a room you work in, or your home. It is similar to casting a circle except that it is as permanent as you want it to be. Be sure that you won't be disturbed while casting the ward or you will have to start over. Nothing is required to do this but you may use any props necessary to make you most comfortable.
After ensuring you won't be disturbed, ground and center (use any form you wish this is a very adaptable ritual). Cast your circle, using the walls as the four Quarters (again use whatever method you are most comfortable with).
After the circle is cast you will do something similar to circle casting. Invoke the Quarters again this time asking for protection of the area being warded against all negative influences from being able to ever enter the area involved. As you invoke each Quarter visualize a wall of energy completely covering the wall involved sealed by a floor to ceiling pentacle. On the wall/s with a door visualize a smaller version of the energy wall and pentacle so that entering and leaving will not affect the integrity of the working. After each wall, the floor, and the ceiling are sealed be sure to cleanse the area to ensure that no negativity was trapped inside the room (any method is acceptable). When done thank the Quarters for their help and dismiss them.

To stop an enemy from bring harm
To stop an enemy from bringing harm, here is what you must do, procure a special oil, of Dragon's blood and Rue. Add to it a pinch of poppy, nightshade and some thyme, add to that three tiny drops, of some bitter wine. Anoint a black candle with your victim's name and seal it with an "X", then chant these words most carefully, to send forth this darksome hex:
"Darksome powers of the night,
Gather round my candle's flame,
Send my enemy in shaded flight,
Send my enemy away in shame."
Say this chant 13 times, on the darkest moon, The Old Ones then will hear your plight and will grant your boon.

Chant for Deities of Justice
With the wand, stir the Air over your cauldron of herbs.

"Little Ones, come join with me
 And the Justice Deities, Change my luck,
Make me bold. Bring me wealth and love to hold,
Accomplishments and friendships true.
For this aid, I don bless you."
Give a special gift to the Earth Elementals to entice them to carry out your requests.
