Because the moon turns the tide and our bodies are mainly composed of water, we wax and wane with the moon.
Generally, psychic energy is highest when the moon is waxing (becoming full) and weakest when it is waning (diminishing).
To attract something into your life, work when the moon is waxing (becoming full). For banishing spells and to remove negativity and bad situations, work when the moon is waning (diminishing).
The most important ingredient of any spell is love. Any spell you cast should come from the heart, and you should direct your thoughts like an arrow toward a magnet.
Spells work in spirits' time. What is sent out mentally leaves an etheric trace, which adds power to the spell when repeated or reworded.
Thought and prayer are very powerful, and what makes the magic work is faith. Both words and thoughts are a powerful vibratory force. You must believe that what you wish for will come true.
