Frustrating Believers to No End
The wrong attachment to results can turn a spell upside down. Your words can be right, but if your feelings are too far from what you want, then so are your results. It’s better to feel nothing than feel the wrong thing, better than burning energy up doubting or fretting. Over-attachment will get in the way of any magic.
Cheating the spell sours it, too. The ingredients and paraphernalia should always be the best you can muster. For instance, many spells call for wooden matches in the supply list. The temptation to just use a lighter, robs the spell of an ingredient, or some essence of the ingredient.
What Makes Magic Go Right
Delighting Believers to No End
Inspiration, always, is key, performing each step with the utmost care and dedication. Your best performance, your deepest truth. Even if you’ve got doubts, if you do it with elegance and panache, you will be surprised at the results you’ll yield. Give it your best, plus a little more.
Important habit, worth developing, as the last action of a ritual or spell: at your last words, turn away from it, walk away and laugh. Laugh the best you can, or smile till your cheeks hurt. Simple, maybe silly, but oh, so very strong!
