Merry Meet:

While I am not new to being a witch; I do lack in practicing like I should. So, I'd like to offer some helpful suggestions for others as well as myself. I believe that by helping others I will be able to help myself on my spiritual journey and regain my strength in my belief system.

My thoughts are always Wicca based and I strive to live by the Wiccan Rede. However, I am still human and am by no means perfect. To me, the Goddess/God is the only perfect being. For those like myself, I would like to offer same basic daily/nightly spells and add the key steps before performing any spell.

Setting up an altar

Tools:

Wand
Athame
Bowl
Chalice
Incense Burner
Candle Holder
Object for representing the Goddess
Object for representing the God (If you chose to do so)
Book of Shadows and a pen

Casting the Magick Circle:

First, you need to get rid of the negative energies by clearing the area you are working in with a verbal incantation:

"May all negative energy be gone from here,
I ask this in the Goddess and God's name.
Be gone all negative energy,
Away with all that is negative, now and for eternity!"

Holding your wand or athame in the hand that you use to write with or eat with and point it toward the north point of the area you are working in.
Take a few cleansing breathes or center yourself how you would normally center yourself. I like to put the palm of my hands on the ground and then take the cleansing breathes with my eyes closed. I feel this ensures that I am grounded and that I am ready for casting spells.
Build your positive energy by becoming one with all that is divine, which some envision is a blue-white light. Build this up and imagine this energy emerging from your wand or athame filling your sacred space.
Once you feel there is enough positive energy to work with, begin spinning slowly to the east, then to the south, to the west, and finally back at the north. You have now completed a protective circle. Remember, when entering or leaving a circle to always make a door in/out and then close the door to ensure no negativity energy enters this space.
Now bind your circle by saying something like:

"This circle is now bound,
With positive energy surrounding
In all the space that I stand in
I am protected all around."

Call In the Elements

This is an important step when using a circle as you want the guardians there to help protect you and to keep the negative energy at bay. There are four guardians as there are four elements. Each guardian stands for a specific element:

North - Earth

Face the north and reach out with both arms skyward. Imagine yourself where there is an abundance of earth and call out:

I call upon the guardians of the North (I like to ad watch tower),
You are the powers of the earth both generous and divine,
Please protect this north gate and guard all within this circle.
Thank you, I welcome you!

East - Air

Face the East and reach out with both arms skyward. Imagine yourself where there is an abundance of air or wind and call out:

I call upon the guardians of the East (I like to ad watch tower),
You are the powers of the air both generous and divine,
Please protect this east gate and guard all within this circle.
Thank you, I welcome you!

South - Fire

Face the South and reach out with both arms skyward. Imagine yourself where there is an abundance of warmth and call out:

I call upon the guardians of the South (I like to ad watch tower),
You are the powers of the fire both generous and divine,
Please protect this south gate and guard all within this circle.
Thank you, I welcome you!

West - Water

Face the West and reach out with both arms skyward. Imagine yourself where there is an abundance of water and call out:

I call upon the guardians of the West (I like to ad watch tower),
You are the powers of the air both generous and divine,
Please protect this west gate and guard all within this circle.
Thank you, I welcome you!

Center of Circle:

Stand in the center of the magick circle and face the altar. Now with true of heart and sincerity call out:

"Guardians of the watch towers of earth, air, fire, and water,
Allow me your power and protection tonight,
Thank you, I welcome you!"

Remember I mentioned opening and closing the circle correctly in order to not allow negative energy into your circle. Here are the steps for doing so:

You will use your athame or power hand when cutting an energetic doorway.

Opening: From the bottom left corner of where you are cutting the doorway, move upward to the right and then downward to the bottom-right corner. Now you can exit the circle.

Closing: From the bottom-left corner, repeat the steps for opening the circle. This will seal the opening until you return.

Once you return to enter the circle, you simply reverse the steps that you took to leave and seal the circle.

Say Goodbye to the Elements

After you are done with your spell work, you will need to bid farewell to the four Elements. Begin at the north, feel the powers of earth and state:

"Guardians of the north watch tower
Generous and divine powers of earth,
You may leave in peace and harmony
I thank you for your magickal presence."

Now face east, south and west and state the same for each element. Always remember to state the element you are speaking of: East - Air, South - Fire, and West - Water.

Opening the Circle

In order to finish opening the circle, face the altar, and state:

"Precious Goddess and God
and all kind spirits and energies
Thank you for your spiritual presence
Blessed Be to All!"

Pulling Up the Circle

Pulling up the circle is simply removing the circle until you need it again. You start by facing North and then while slowly spinning counter-clockwise, bring the positive energy back into the tool you used to create the circle, now make a cut across the boundary of the circle and state:

"The circle is now open, but unbroken,
Merry meet and merry part, and merry meet again.
As above, so below and Blessed be!"

There you have it. Brightest Blessings!
