Why Spells Sometimes Don't Work


Why do spells work and sometimes don't work? There are many things that contribute to a spell ritual work properly and not one thing alone. All of the following combined together will make a spell, hex or curse work and work good.
1. The Moon phase
2. The proper materials ad supplies
3. The mental condition of the practitioner
4. The experience of the practitioner
5. The Magickal energy built up by the practitioner
6. Your belief in the magic you are working
7. The proper spell


1. The Moon phase

The proper Moon phase is one of the keys to success in spell casting. The Moon effects everything and can effort out moods and actions.

There are four phases of the Moon. New Moon, Waxing moon, Full Moon and the Waning Moon. Each of these phases has a 7 day period for doing your magical workings. If you add these phases up, you come up with the 28 days lunar. The time period for each phase is....3 days before and 3 days after. This gives you plenty of time to plan and do your spell casting. Not everyone can plan on doing magic on one certain day, so this opens the window of opportunity for those of you who have busy lives.

Here is what the different phases are normally used for in magic.

New Moon - This phase is very similar to the Waning Moon and is used to rid ones self of things.

Waxing Moon - This phase is for doing spells that might increse your gain such as money, power or other material things.

Full Moon - This is the phase where most people do there important spells in.

2. The proper materials and supplies

These are so very important, for you must have all the proper things needed for a spell. You may possibly need herbs, coloured candles, voodoo dolls, oils and of coarse the proper spell. The herbs, coloured candles and oils are specific ones that are associated with that type of spell. In other words they have vibration that is related to what you are trying to accomplish. for instance if you are doing a love spell you would not want to use green candles, you would want to use red candles and if you were doing a money spell you would not want to use a red candle, you would use a green candle. Go and see my candle magic page, when it is on the site, in the very near future on my book of shadows page and a page maybe all by its self.

3. The mental conditions of the practitioner

This is also very important. You must be in the right state of mind. If you are trying to do a love spell, you must have the emotion of love for that person to project out in to the universe in order for it to manifest. In other words you cannot be angry or depressed when doing a love spell. The same goes for black magic hexes and so forth, you must be worked up in to rage or a very hate filled mood to project hate at the victim. You cannot expect a hex to work on someone if you are in a jolly mood when performing the spell. Your mind must be in sync with the type of spell you are doing. Plus you must believe in your work and not have doubts. How can you expect a spell to work if you dont believe in them but you want to try them just to see if they do work. You will get nothing from it.

4. The experience of the practitioner

The person casting the spells should have some exeperience or at least some good study and practice. The more you practrice magic and do certain rituals the more you will build up your knowledge of the occult and magic and therefore be more potent in your spells.

5. The magical energy build up by the practitioner

This is one way to add potency to your spells and hexes. There are many different rituals out there according to what you believe in so find the ones that suite your beliefs and get to work on them everyday of your life and you will see a difference in the quality of your life and the potency of your magical doings.

6. Your belief in the magic you are working

You must believe in your magical workings. If you dont, how can you expect them to work. You must be patient and you must believe! If you do not believe in the occult and magic, then i suggest you stay away from it. Word to the wise...magic is not a game or something to just dabble with in or play with. Magic is a way of life.

7. The proper spell

Some spells out there are crap, but some are really good. You must have the right spell. Some spells may work better for you than others, so experiment and keep a journal of your workings so that you know which ones work best for you and which ones dont. Also, just because a spell doesn't work for you doesn't mean that it is no good, you may have not been in the right state of mind or maybe you didn't have the proper materials. All the above things on this page come in to play.
