Spells & Wishes
Isn't the point of spells to grant wishes? Yes, but even wishes
take work. If someone else is performing the spell for you, or if you're just tossing a coin in a wishing well, you still have preparation and follow up to do for the wish to work. Energy flows along the path of least resistance wether it's electricity, water, air, pressure or magick. Saying a wish will never come true creates a block to the energy of the wish. It's like putting up a damn to block the wish from getting to you and affecting your life. So before doing a spell or asking for a wish, you must truely believe it will work. You must be open and ready for it to work. Not being ready for a spell to work is a mistake even the most advanced witch can make.
On the tv show Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Buffy is killed and Willow, a powerful witch, plans a spell to bring her back to life. The spell works, and Buffy comes back to life where she was left. In her grave. Before doing a spell or asking a wish, be ready to receive it! If you are buying a new couch, get the old couch out of the living room first. After completing your spell or wishing, let it go. Release the energy with the confidence it will do your will. Then forget about it. Don't worry or be negative about it. That will only work to pull the energy back to you, creating fractures in the energy and possibly dissolving the effectiveness of your spell or wish. A common rule in witchcraft is to not speak of a spell once it is done, at least not until the sun sets again.
Luck is when opportunity meets preparation.
