To practice white magic, you must have a basic understanding of intent and philosophy to avoid detrimental side effects. You can learn how to prepare and properly use white magic, then successfully create spells.
What Is White Magic?
Black magic is practiced with the intent of causing harm in some form, but white magic is practiced with good intentions. Practitioners of white magic are often of the Wiccan faith, which may be described as a modern pagan religion that looks to the earth for guidance in base methods and beliefs. A primary Wiccan belief is the law of threefold return, which simply means that each action will be returned to the perpetrator in three times its original magnitude, whether good or bad. The law of threefold return doesn't encourage the practice of black magic. The practice of white magic by Wiccans typically consists of prayers, rituals and benevolent spells but may also include objects thought to imbue luck to the carrier, such as talismans or crystals.
If you decide to cast a white magic spell, check the alignment of all elements. To accurately execute a hex, charm or spell, consult the following: moon phase; planetary hour and day; proper materials and supplies; your mental condition, experience, stored magical energy and belief in white magic; the will of the universe; and the selection of the proper spell. You can determine and enhance these with the proper amount of research and meditation. Skipping preparation will decrease the power of any white magic attempts.
The Sun Candle: A Daily Balancing Ritual
Materials/Prep: bright yellow candle, paper or wooden matches. You need to know which direction is south. Spell: Sitting or standing in the south, facing north, position the sun candle in front of you. Light the candle with the matches, and allow the flame to grow tall and steady. Hold your hand around the candle, letting the light fill your palms. Focus all your attention on the flame. Say the verse below in a voice of command. Child of Wonder, Child of Flame, Nourish my Spirit And protect my Aim! Allow the candle to burn for at least 30 minutes, then extinguish the flame by blowing it out, not by snuffing.
Luck Spell: Turn Odds in Your Favor
Prep: Practice when the moon is full. Spell: Facing the full moon, say the verse below, varying tempo or volume based on the amount of luck you need. Lady of luck come out of your hidden course, Bless your light upon me as the light of the moon shines above. In the light of luck will be blessed I, when the moon is next to be full.
Protection Spell: Ensure Safety for Self and Loved Ones
Prep: Visualize yourself sitting in the middle of a pentagram, facing upward, with three circles of purple light surrounding you. Spell: In an unwavering, demanding voice, repeat the first two lines of the following verse three times, then repeat the last line twice: Twice around the circle's bound Sink all evil to the ground So mote it be.
Creating Your Own White Magic Spells
White magic charms or spells are often highly personal, so you may want to create your own, which will allow you to address needs not specifically stated in an average spell. Your belief in your spell is the best assurance of success. First, the desire to harness the universal powers in concentrated form must be for good only. Second, paying homage to gods or goddesses in your chant with a simple praise can add fortitude to your spell. Third, you may want to incorporate prayer beads, a rosary or similar tool to aid in keeping rhythm while chanting. (This is not necessary but may add to your overall feeling of power.) Fourth, walk in a circle or with a sense of purpose; physical movement grounds the practitioner and unifies the powers of body and soul. Also, pay attention to your feelings with high regard during the casting. Last, while rhyming is not required, it assists with rhythm, building momentum. Most important, rhyme adds beauty to the sound and feel of the spell.
