Spells have always been part of witchcraft and are considerd by modern man as superstition. However, spells work, especially for the own purposes because what you believe manifests. So it is better to know your “spells” which are called nowadays rather affirmations. We affirm nonstop what we believe and our spells or affirmations are written on the wall – so to speak. We affirm what we like and even more what we do not like and are often unconscious about what we “write on the wall”.
One very effective method to know more about the own affirmations and to change them if they are unpleasent is certainly EFT, founded by Gary Craig which shows how affirmations work and how to choose new ones. The most dangerous spells are not those which we construct for some purpose but those which we do not know.

We live in a Palace of Possibilities.
It is an ever expanding structure and is filled with awesome rooms and annexes that are loaded with achievements and joy. These rooms are open to everyone, although most of us only visit a few of them. It’s not that we are barred from any of the rooms. No indeed!! They are our birthright. Rather, it’s that we choose to dwell only in those rooms within which we are comfortable. Somehow, we don’t “belong” in those other, more expansive rooms. They are for others. They are for richer people and more privileged people and people with more talent than us. We stay within the familiar (our comfort zones) and don’t venture beyond the walls (limits) of the rooms we have chosen. Why? Because our cans and can’ts are written on those walls and we obey those dictates as though they were real. Our incomes reflect those limits. So does our self image. In fact, there is scarcely any part of our makeup that is not affected by what’s written on those walls.
The words on our walls are metaphors for our self talk, of course. They represent the attitudes, opinions & beliefs that we have accumulated over the years. Many of them are hand-me-downs from our parents, grandparents, teachers, coaches, religion, peers, books, TV and an endless list of other “authorities” in our lives. Upon inspection (which we will do in this series) many of them are laughable. Nonetheless, they still seem to have a hold on our progress.
BTW: It is a good idea to write your most important affirmations on a real wall – or at least on the desktop – to see them very often and by this facilitate the installation in your mind.
This is a spell that helps against sadness. I found it at The Witches Blog
