Why Spellwork Gotta Be So Hard ? April 4, 2018

I have a niece that is almost a teenager, she loves unicorns, Taylor Swift, slime and spellwork. She made me a birthday card last week that was very nice. It said ” I love you and hope you have the best birthday ever ! Also your recipes for love magic are too complicated !” The “not so pleasant reality” response to that statement is life is hard, and therefore magick and spells are hard too.

In Spellwork Increase Brings Increase

There are a lot of things that go into spellwork. Just like with everything in life there are rules. When you craft a spell you are hoping to improve your chances of your desired outcome coming true. Many people are familiar with the triangular building/managing concept where the points of the triangle are designated fast, easy, and cheap. You can get two points of the triangle, but never all three. In my over twenty-five years of experience as a professional psychic and spellworker I have found this triangle certainly applies. When doing any kind of spellwork you must pay attention to the easy piece. I’m not saying you need to put Yak Cheese in your bra like on that episode of Buffy The Vampyre Slayer. But one of the things that will make your spells more successful is doing more than one type of working on the situation. For example if you are going to do a carved candle ritual, consider also doing a spell oil, and/or a spiritual bath too. In my post 9 Truths About Voodoo Spells I wrote  “My experience is that people can be just plain lazy, and they don’t want to bother to get or perform the necessary elements for success.” More magick will improve your success rate, so if possible consider doing one or more spells to get what you want.

With Spellwork Begin At The Beginning

I think one of the things that young witches like my niece may be experiencing is just part of the journey to starting anything. In much of my writing in the Love Magic book and here on this blog Voodoo Universe,  I stress the importance of creating altars and thereby relationships with deities and energies in the universe. These altars and relationships can function as a spiritual “bank” of sorts, where you can store energy and magick for use at a later time. If you are just starting with magick out consider creating some altars or shrines in your home to honor the Gods, Goddesses, and forces of nature. It will help with any spells you do in the future, and your magick will be more successful overall.
