Witchcraft can be whatever you want it to be. It can involve intricate, complicated rituals that incorporate a wide array of traditional tools and ingredients — or it can be sweet, simple and to the point. Jar spells are a staple in most modern witch’s practice because they are versatile: They can be just as complicated or simplistic as how you choose your witchcraft path in general. The following spell is more on the simple side, but it can be personalized in way to suit any of your needs. If you want to learn how to make your own wish jar to manifest whatever you want, then keep reading.

What you need:

  1. Jar of your choosing
  2. Items that represent your desires (small enough to fit in jar)
  3. (optional) aesthetic items to make jar decorative

Gather your materials

Before you make your jar, it’s important to first gather the materials you will use to aid in manifestation. In order to do this, you must be completely sure about the purpose of your wish jar. What is your intent? Do you want to manifest a better paying job, a stable home life or a new romantic interest? Are your needs simple, or are they more complex? For the sake of this article, let’s go with an example: Attracting a new place to live.

Gather materials that you associate with the home of your dreams — or at least one that is suitable for your situation. If you have a picture of the home in question, that’s great. You can also draw your dream home (or apartment), or write down the address on a slip of paper. Other materials you might consider: rocks or gravel from the property in question, a flower from the property or any other small tangible item that is connected to the residence. Add some lodestone or magnet to your materials, which is obviously used to “draw” energy to you. Cinnamon sticks or powdered cinnamon act as a fiery trigger to get the ball rolling, so-to-speak.

Fill the jar

Put your gathered items into the jar. It’s really just that simple. You should focus on what you want to manifest as you do this. Don’t focus on any stressful thoughts, and avoid thoughts of doubt or uncertainty while doing this. Keep your energy light, positive and as if you’ve already received the abundance you’re manifesting.

More tips

You can decorate your jar and place it somewhere in your home where you will see it frequently. This keeps the wish jar in your mind, which should inspire you to continue the focus on what you want to manifest. This jar can also be used in other spells — complicated or otherwise — to enhance the energy you’ve already put into it. Get creative with your wish jars, and make them completely personal to your needs and your aesthetic.
