Full Answer

Casting spells is a sacred ritual to Pagans and Wiccans. Practitioners believe there is a lot of power within spells and casting them should never be done lightly or in a manner that is disrespectful to their sacredness. Before casting spells, it is a good idea for a person to research the practices and beliefs of Wiccans and Pagans to gain knowledge about the significance of spells and the prescribed actions in casting them.

According to the nine steps of spell casting, a spell should be cast within a circle. The circle helps individuals connect with the god or goddesses whose aid is being sought. Next, the divinity should be called and the objective of casting the spell publicly proclaimed. The energy of the room should be infused through rhythm such as dancing or drumming. Once energy levels have peaked, the spell should be cast as prescribed by the book or list in which the spell is derived. Finally, thanks in the form of some sort of reward or sacrifice should be offered to the god or goddess.

    What are some spells to become a shapeshifter?

    A:

    According to Spells of Magic, one of the most direct ways of shape-shifting is to choose an animal and begin to understand the creature. The next step is to merge with the animal in spirit and shape-shift in the Astral Plane. Once the shape-shifter has become acclimated to transforming in the Astral Plane, making the transition into physical shape-shifting is much easier.

    Can you levitate for real?

    While levitation of objects is possible using a number of scientific methods, magic tricks often use an illusion to create this effect, and there is no known way of levitating a person without the use of science or illusion. Many spiritual practices claim to be able to produce levitation of a person through various mystical techniques, but none of these have been proven to work when scrutinized.
