ANSWER - There are certainly some things you can do to maximise your chances of success, some of which are practical and some of which are of a more magical focus.
Practical first – when you go into any panel hearing the situation (as I’m sure you know) can be very stressful. The danger of this is that you will miss out some of the key points you need to make. I strongly suggest you may some notes on prompt cards and take them into the hearing with you. That way if you do find the pressure gets to you or you become emotional you can still ensure you cover everything you need to say.
Disability hearings, emotive as they may be, will be decided on hard facts rather than emotion so it is important you can get across the particulars of your given situation. It is crucial that you focus not just on the disability itself but on the things your disability prevents you from doing in order to live a fulfilling life. Try to come up with some very specific and tangible examples to clearly illustrate the impact your disability has on your life. A clear understanding of your day to day life and the things your disability prevents you from doing is the key to winning your claim.
From a magical perspective what you are looking at is manipulation magic. My suggestion is that you obtain the names of the decision makers as a priority. Any working you do will have the greatest impact if you can target it specifically at the people who will be sitting on your panel. Find out in advance what these people are called.
Once you have the names of the people then you can start to target a manipulation working toward them. The simplest way to do this is with the use of candle magic. Popularly yellow candles are used for this purpose but as with most colour associations, a personal preference or a colour linked to the specific working you are undertaking will work just as well. Personalise the candles by carving the names of the individuals onto their candles and I’d also suggest carving a rune on there as well (teiwaz, the rune of success – looks a bit like an arrow would be your best choice) and perhaps anointing with a touch of orange oil. Speak out loud and confirm the link between your named candle and the name of the person it is representing. Confirm this link in your own mind (perhaps by repeating the name a few times until you are confident the association is formed) and then light the candle and state clearly into the flame that your will is greater than the will of the person whom the candle represents and they will agree with you and find in favour of your claim at the disability hearing. Repeat for each of the individuals and leave the candles to burn.
The success of this working will be dependent on the strength of the association between the candles and the individuals represented and also the projection of your own will and intent into the spell. Don’t pay lip service to the wording, think very carefully about the outcome you want and have a very clear visualisation in your mind booth of what you want the outcome to be and the benefit that outcome will have on your lif. Visualise yourself happy and relieved with the panel ruling in your favour and then project that happiness back into the spell to add power to it.
