When you are considering purchasing a spell you need to keep in mind that a spell is completely dependent on what your INTENTION is. Magick works using your FOCUSED WILL & INTENTION. Not just mine, as your spellcaster (that plays a part too) but ultimately what it is that you want to transpire.
A good way to know what you want is to write down the top three desires you have regarding your issues. In fact a number of spells will ask for this specifically either three or five desires that you would like to see manifest in your spell. This will help you to clarify what your intention is.
Let me give you a good example of pulling out your intention from your general desires regarding a spell.
The following is an example of a sample statement of intention:
Sample statement: “I want my ex-boyfriend John to return to me. I want to see him calling me and interested in spending time with me. I want to be in a closer relationship with him than we ever had previously. I want there to be no obstacles such as interlopers (other women) or friends of his that caused trouble in the past. I want our friendship and love to be strong and healthy. I want John to see me as I truly am and to desire me and no one else. I want John to remember all the good times we had and forget as much as he can about the problems we had. I want those problems to be eliminated. I want to see him eventually moving in with me again. I want him to be positive about our renewed love. I want to be positive as well. I want there to be no arguments about the kind of things we argued about previously. I want us to stay focused on being good partners to each other. I want his friends to be less of a factor in his life. I want to see him dedicated to a real commitment with me. I want to be the best that I can be with John; I want to be super confident and not clingy like I used to be. I want us to fall in love all over again and have this love eventually lead to marriage.”
Make sure that your statement uses the “I” format. This statement is for you so it can contain anything you would like to see happen, even if it seems selfish or even somewhat unrealistic. Just write down everything you want to see. All of it together is your intention. Once you have that statement of intention you will read through it and find the THREE most important declarations – the backbone of your statement that all other parts can fit into.
For instance in the statement above the three most important points are:
- I want my ex-boyfriend John to return to me.
- I want our friendship and love to be strong and healthy.
- I want us to fall in love all over again and have this love eventually lead to marriage.
Thus for this intention – the client is looking to have her ex return to her, for their love to be strong and healthy and to have their renewed relationship end in marriage.
That is her particular intention for this spell she is having cast. That way you know exactly what you are looking for and you will use that intention to focus your will.
I will discuss WILL in my next post.
