How to Prepare for a Spell

Prepare for a Spell

You should always put a lot of effort into preparing yourself when you are going to do a spell. Doing the right prep work can keep you safe and it can protect you from negative energies.

Preparing also gives you strength to make sure that you are able to cast the spell. As you increase your energies, you can be more successful in making the magic happen. The best thing that you can do to prepare for a spell will vary depending on what you believe.

The goal to prepare though is the same and it is to make sure that your mental and spiritual energies match up. Spells can take days or weeks to prepare and how much you choose to prepare is completely up to you.

Early Prep

There should be early prep work that is done if you are going to do something that is going to change your life.

Know the Spell

The first thing that you need to do is to know the spell. Know it step by step and make sure that you know exactly what you are going to do. Pay attention to the direction, the items that you need and make sure that you have it all.

Be Confident

Be confident as you build yourself up to do the spell. You have to believe that it is going to work, or it won’t. Be confident in yourself.


Some spells have to work with certain moon phases, and some don’t. Make sure that when you do the spell that you know when the best time to do it is. Set your schedule so that you can prepare to do the spell when the time is right.

You should always concentrate on making sure that you are doing spelling right, especially if you are a beginning spell caster.

Making the Space Sacred

Cleansing Your Space

After you pick your space, make sure that you cleanse it. This should be a space that you protect. Sweep the area and get rid of dirt and dust. Get rid of anything you don’t need. Once you clean the area, cleanse the spiritual space by meditating, getting rid of unwanted energies, smudging, and doing things that can get rid of bad vibes. Sweep out any negative energy and do this beginning in the east and sweeping counter clockwise.

If you cleanse the space for the first time, make sure that you sprinkle salt around the space and ring a bell three times. Then imagine the area cleansed of anything negative.

Dedicating Your Space

After you cleanse your sacred space, dedicate it. This space should be something personal to you. There are ways that you can dedicate your space and you need to decide which is best for you.

Preparing for a Ritual

Cleansing Yourself

You need to start by cleansing yourself spiritually before you ever do a spell. Here is what you will need:

  • Tub.
  • White candle.
  • Cedar essential oil.
  • Hyssop essential oil.
  • Sandalwood essential oil.
  • Sage oil.

Cleansing Yourself Spiritually

Anoint the candles with the hyssop oil and then light it with the incense. Get in the bath and then add cedar oil, hyssop oil and sandalwood oil in the bath. Get in the water and cleanse yourself. Focus on how to get rid of anything that is negative in your spiritual being.

After you do your bath, anoint yourself with the sandalwood and put some on your head, wrists, heart, above your genitals, feet, and knees.

If you don’t have a bath, put water in your sink or a bucket and add the oils and cleanse yourself with a cloth.

Preparing for the Spell Working

Some people will change the way that they eat before they do a spell. They want to make sure that they are in a positive mood. When you go to bed, think of the instructions of the spell again and imagine how the spell is going to work. If you have other people in your home, tell them not to bother you while you are sleeping or preparing.

Make sure you get at least 8 hours of sleep the night before. Not getting enough sleep can cause the energy to not be there that is needed to make the spell successful. After you wake up, don’t talk for at least 15 minutes, and don’t move around. Focus on the spell and you can even keep the instructions under your pillow so that you can read them and charge the energies of the spell.

Getting Tools and Supplies

Make sure that you have everything that you need to cast the spell. Get rid of any impurities on the spell and make sure that they have no negative energies tied to them from other spells. Do this with your crystals and anything you are going to use in your spell casting.

Cleanse and anoint your candles and get ready for you ritual. You don’t want to have any problems or miss any ingredients on the day of the spell because this can cause stress.

The Day of the Spell

Before you spell it, make sure that there is nothing negative in your mind. Clear your mind of all things besides the spell.


Take time to meditate and to make sure that you are calm. Create an area that is calm and that is exciting. Play some music, burn a candle, light some incense. Do whatever will make you feel full of power.

If the ritual has many people working together on the spell, make sure that you do something together that puts you in harmony with each other. This can be a game that you play, a song that you sing or putting on the same perfume.

Keep Safe

Mak ensure that you are safe in your physical being when you are doing a spell. If you live alone, lock the doors, and make sure that you turn off your cell phone and your land line. Don’t have any radios that are playing.

The only noise that you want to have been music that will make the spell work or silence. Most spells are done in silence but sometimes music makes the spell stronger.

Spiritual Safety

Look at spiritual safety. Take a bath or a shower and add essential oils to make the spell work better. Cleanse yourself and make sure that you get rid of any negative energies. Put on cloths that don’t have negative energy. You can wear a robe or something that you didn’t wear that day.

Anoint your head and the area over your heart with sandalwood. Sprinkle salt around the corners of the room where you will be doing the spell.

Staying Safe

Being safe is important and you can ask for white light to fill your room. Imagine the light filling the whole room and keeping you safe. Step in the white light and let the energy protect you from negative energies or spirits. You can also sprinkle salt or put sandalwood oil on you. If you are doing a dangerous spell, do all the things that you can to stay safe.

Let white light go into your area and make sure that it is a ball of light that is big and that is strong to keep you safe in your space. Visualize white light filling the circle around you. Let it come into your area. See light as a bubble and let it go completely over you.

Take all the steps that you can to stay safe when you are doing spell casting. You want to block out any negativity from coming to you that would block you from doing the spell. There is nothing worse than the spell not working because of being disturbed or being negative.

Tips for Preparing for Spells

The biggest thing is to prepare your mind and your body for the spell casting. Spells can be unpredictable sometimes and sometimes things from the outside can mess up the results. Don’t overdo the spell if the spell isn’t working for you that day. You need to give the spell a rest and then prepare again and try it at another time.
