It bears repeating that magick is not instant. It is one of the most complicated parts of spellcasting for my clients to deal with. They want that “Bewitched” instant magick, that Hollywood movie magic, where the spell is cast and instantly everything takes shape and they all lived happily ever after.
But that’s in the movies and on TV and not real life. In real life, anything worth having takes time, even when using spells to motivate and inspire and move things along. You can’t run over time, it is the great equalizer.You have to give time its due.
Magick will work when it works – especially in complicated situations involving multiple people and states of free will. You can use magick to influence, even coerce to a point but not to control. I had a client who thought that a spell was mind-control over her person of desire. That is simply never the case because magick works according to natural law and free will is part of natural law.
When you have a spell cast the last thing you need to be thinking about is hurry, hurry, time is running out, it has to be now! There is no way to control this, so you will only exasperate yourself.
The best thing to do is have your spell cast and then just go on with whatever it is that you do. The world and Universe will not stop because a spell was cast and neither should you. You aren;t really “waiting” for the spell to manifest. It’s that the spell manifests when it is able to, when obstacles have been overcome, when the path to your desires is clear and then the spell will manifest.
Don’t wait for it. Trust it. Your faith above all else is the power it needs.
Give it time.
Sometimes it seems like whenever I get the slightest calm in my life everything else around me goes straight to hell! Especially things that I cannot control or influence, like what has been happening lately in Ukraine with Russia. I know many of my clients think about similar things, is it going to be like that movie Red Dawn back in the 80’s? The one with Patrick Swayze not the remake, though it had a younger Chris Hemsworth in it which was A-OK with me!)
The short answer is: we cannot possibly know what will happen in the world around us but the better our own lives are, the more capable we are to weather which way the winds of change are blowing.
The long answer is: get your own stuff together kids! Do whatever is necessary to be in the best place you can be no matter what is happening in the world around you, even if it is half a world away, it all has energetic influence on us. So now is the time to start thinking about what you need in your life to make it better – to sort out a love issue, to get closer to your family, to give extra time to your children, to find some time for yourself. It can be as simple as getting your hair cut or playing a pick-up game of basketball – whatever makes you happy and brings you a few moments of peace and joy.
Or perhaps you need more – take that vacation you have always wanted to take if you can afford to do it now, stop putting your life on the back burner. You deserve what’s good now, what you need to make you happy now.
You can change whatever you want to change or need to change – RIGHT NOW! No matter what is happening in the world, you are still in control of your life and can make it the life you desire. Trust me, i know these things.
After all, I am a witch.
