Hi I'm semi-new to the craft and I'm having trouble creating my own spells.  Undecided For instance, right now I'm trying to create a spell for talent, or enhancement of abilities, but I'm totally stuck.  Huh Can someone give me ideas to start, or help me come up with one?  Grin Thanks so much!

What type of talent or abilities?

First thing I would look at is spell mechanics. A spell for this type of ... want? or need would not last. IMO
If it's for a one time shot no maintenance would be involved, a doable
But if it's thought that a set and forget spell would work, I myself see the holes and dropping of balls. For a constant I feel you'd have to maintain it, feed it and direct it often. That to me, is an awful lot of work. Exspecially if you have more than one working your taking care of or layering.

Perhaps look more towards awareness of ability or "eyes to see" where work can be done to enhance what is already there.
Like RandellS asked... What type of talent or abilities?
and I'll add... what is the goal/intent?

I always work backward. I start with the goal/intent/outcome in mind and put the spell together that way. I get it from teaching - we call it backloading. The idea is you have to know where you're going before you start out, or there's no telling where you'll end up. Once you have a goal, you can begin to focus your energy and power on achieving that goal and realizing it through your magic. That's just my take on it.

If it is just simple enhancement you desire then to me you need a connection spell. You will want to be connected to the energy of your chosen talent. You will want to find a way to focus on the spirit of that energy so it might be helpful to find a deity to aid in the focus. I know of someone who has connected to Bast for dance and music.

I am big on talismans because they are something you keep with you to help keep the connection flowing. If you want to use one I can only tell you what I might do.  I have a large black bowl that I use but you can use any bowl. After I had cleansed an area and I am in the right mind-set (I often use appropriate music and color candles to set the mood) I would call upon the spirit of the talent to be with me, then envision the talent, (dance, music, art, whatever) swirling around inside the black bowl. I would then dip the talisman (object of your choice preferably something symbolic of the talent) into the bowl asking the spirit to attach itself to my object. Then slowly remove the object and thank the spirit.

Keep the talisman with you and feel the energy of the spirit when you think you may need it.

Good luck, whatever method you choose.
