As life has many layers, (need for security, love, housing, job, etc.), so too spells can have many layers. For example, let’s say you are stressed out and not sleeping because a coworker gets under your skin and you want to take a trip to Jamaica. You need the money for this trip, you want someone to go with and you’ve heard that there are areas that may not be safe so you have no idea how to proceed. A creation spell is a layered spell or one spell to handle all the concerns surrounding your situation that will help you to bring about or “create” a new situation.
Ready? First be clear in your own mind how you want your trip to look because what we think about continuously invites those circumstances into our lives. Get a white candle that will represent you and cleanse it with either salt water, your breath, Florida Water or whatever you like to use. Hold it and think your intentions, picturing clearly what you want to experience. Let’s say you are stoked to go to a beach there. See it clearly in your mind’s eye, hear the waves roll in and recede, smell and feel the ocean spray on your face, taste the salt, hear seagulls, feel sand between your toes. Light the bottom of the candle and secure it to a fireproof bowl. Pour water into the bowl and speak your intentions into the water. Be vivid. Feel how you think it feels to be on a beach in Jamaica. Water amplifies intentions. If this is all you have to make magick with, it is more than enough. Remember, words are power and thoughts are power. Thinking on what you desire and speaking it into the Universe is a spell as well, but if you want to jazz up this spell and give it more punch…
Burn pine needles in your cauldron to draw money to you for your vacation. Remember that there must be a “channel” or a way to receive money into your life but it is possible that an opportunity to make money can present itself through magick. You can surround the bowl with your candle with crystals like amethyst to make your intentions to relieve stress and promote sleep, lapis lazuli to help you connect to your spirit guides for advice on how you should plan your trip, black stones from your local park to invite protection or put salt into the water, rose quartz to invite love or a friend to go along. Seashells are another element to add to this spell because it represents the beach, protection and serves to draw things to you. If the shells are not from the sea, immerse them in sea salt and water overnight and surround your candle with them. Other representations of a sun-soaked dream in the Caribbean is sand which stands for balance, stability, grounding, protection from negativity and a gold candle which stands for solar energy... Enjoy!

I was blown away when I learned about servitors and how to create them. I learned a long time ago, through my chosen religious practice, that human beings have God as a part of us so it naturally follows that we have the power to create…yes, art, music, technology as well as creatures that we bring to life for our own purposes. A servitor begins as an idea. Think about what you want to accomplish. For instance, I made mine from a desire to learn financial information that I found hard to understand. I pictured a creature bearing a certain form that I would fully create with my mind and send forward into the world to bring opportunities to me to learn about finances and make money. I then named my servitor and gave it a personality and a place to exist. A “housing” is an object for the servitor to be bound to. This could be a ring, a box, etc., but I chose to allow my servitor to be with me constantly. It likes to be praised for it’s beauty and I do so regularly.
As I am the creator of my servitor, I am also responsible for it. A servitor can be fed by the magician’s preferred method of direction. I determined that mine would be fed by a certain herb that I would provide to it each day along with oil on a tea light candle while thinking of it’s beauty and speaking with it or thinking fondly of it. I also provide it water and playthings. The amount of time the servitor is to exist is important. The time is specified during the creation process.
So, how did I bring my servitor to life? I first asked Archangel Michael for his presence to guard against malevolent entities. You can cast a circle or use whatever means you need to feel protected. Then I sat quietly and imagined the form of my servitor and its purpose, where it would live and its personality. Then I fed it energy through thought and emotion. I filled it with white light energy. When it was formed completely, I spoke to it. I told it what it’s name is, its purpose and that as it worked for me and I saw results, I would provide more for it than just the basic needs as a reward. It is producing for me already. I feel for my servitor. This is what makes it real.
If you would like more information on the creation of servitors, Kelly-Ann Maddox has a video on YouTube called A Witch’s Astral Army: Let’s Make Servitors. She's amazing and knows what she's talking about. The video is a little lengthy, but well worth it. Check it out...
