When a Witch starts on his/her journey, they will often begin by using someone else's spells or rituals, or premade Spells. While often these spells can work, they are not nearly as effective as if the Witch wrote it themselves. Creating your own spells reflects your own individuality; they are tailored to your own needs and use your own brand of energy. Writing your spells will allow you to have more freedom, choosing every which direction you want to follow. Along with this freedom, comes great responsibility, you must think of all the repercussions these spells could entail.Once you start creating your own Spells and Rituals, the next logical step will be casting it. The number of different Spellcasters out there range from a variety of different belief systems; Pagans, Druids, Witch Doctors, Voodoo Priests, etc... The list is vast. One example, in Wicca, we believe in the Wiccan rede. There are a set of laws, or rules to follow when casting any spell, and some things to remember. The rule of three comes to mind, "Mind the Three-fold Laws you should three times bad and three times good." These are important factors to consider when you are planning to cast any spell. Be aware of the good and always be wary of the risks. Think of the "ethics" behind your practice, and any implications that may follow by these actions.
