Occasionally it happens that I have some difficulties (just like non-witches) and I have been dealing with something that I never thought I’d have to cope with – deadbeat clients.
I’m not sure how this happened. Previously I have always offered financial accommodations to my long-term clients so they could purchase their spells on monthly payment plans to make it easier for them to get the spells they desired. That coupled with a reduction in prices for my spells is something that I was happy to offer to all my clients, new and old to make magick affordable for everyone.
I don’t get rich as a working witch. I do this because I love being a witch and using magick to help people. It is very rewarding in many ways and it allows me to use a great deal of creativity in my work, from keeping up websites to the spells themselves, crafting rituals, communicating with clients, working at crafting oils and herbs etc.
Still, I have bills to pay like everyone else and I am the sole support of my household which consists of my mother and me. When I offer a payment plan to a client and they don’t come through at the agreed upon time that sends my finances into a tailspin because that is money I am counting on to live.
I pride myself on completing the spell work and sending it out before all the payments are complete because I offer my trust to the client. I have fulfilled my part of the arrangement by casting and completing their spell and ask that they in turn will pay me according to their plan.
When this does not happen as it has for the first time since I offered this option, it forces me to reconsider how I can work with my clients in such an arrangement. I am thinking that in the future on payment plans I will not be able to offer the spell results until the payments are complete. I don’t want to do this and truthfully it is only a handful of clients that have ruined it for everyone but I can’t see that I have another choice.
To those clients who have not paid for their spells at the agreed upon time, ultimately you will only hamstring yourself. Casting spells requires energetic commitment from both caster and client. If you do not fulfill your end of the agreement your spell will not manifest because you have not completed the energetic exchange. This is a caveat I include in all my spells. Spells are mutual from witch to client.
In other words if you cheat the witch – you will only cheat yourself.
