Many people that are involved in witchcraft wonder if they should write their own spells or use a spell that is in a book. It's not always a simple choice and it will vary from person to person. You may be wondering what it is that you can do to decide if you should write your own spell or not.
Should I Write A Spell?
Those that are new to the craft may be wondering when it is alright to write their own spells. This is a personal choice, but most find that writing a spell is a huge step in their craft. There are some things to think about if you are planning to write spells on your own. The first is how you feel about writing a spell. If the spell has something to do with something that is important to you, then you will have a better chance of the spell working.
Another thing that you will want to think about is the fact that this spell will be untested and just for you. This can be an advantage and a disadvantage as well. The advantage is that it is something that is original to you and your need. This means that it is all from your energy and not combined with the person that originally wrote the spell.
A disadvantage is that you really have no clue if it will work. Some spells that are written just don't work for what they were supposed too. Other times they work in ways that we don't really understand until later. Writing a spell can make this uncertainty a lot higher.
Should I Use a Book?
Books are great for learning about spell work and for taking spells from. These usually have a proven track record and have been used by many people. The writer of the book may have decided to include their own original spells or spells that have been around for many years. It sometimes takes time to find a spell that will work for what you want and if you don't have time to look, you may not find what you need.
Whatever you may decide, you should have your heart in the spell. I think that if you are not fully committed to the spell and the outcome that is will have less power to work for you.
