The bad news is that there are a lot of ways that magic can go wrong. Probably the most common is where you do not focus your intent clearly enough. For example you might do a spell to increase your wealth but fail to be specific and find that the magic works by turning up a grubby 2p down the back of your sofa. (Probably serves you right for wording your spell: “Bring more money my way….”!) Or you might cast a spell for a windfall, fall on a crack in the pavement and get your bag of cash through those pesky win no fee accident lawyers. The danger with using magic is that your magic may work but you may not get the result you want. I always think the best illustration of magic going wrong is the WW Jacobs story of The Monkey’s Paw). You’ve probably heard it – basically, a couple acquire a lucky talisman in the form of a monkey’s paw which is said to grant three wishes. They are told that the last owner used his final wish to wish for death itself. The couple take the lucky monkey’s paw and wish for a payment to pay off their mortgage. They get the money but unfortunately it is in the form of compensation for their son who dies in an accident….. Kind of reminds you of the old adage Be Careful What You Wish For….. doesn’t it….
Now I am not, repeat NOT saying that if you do a little magic spell for some extra money and your Great Aunt Gertrude drops dead and leaves you an inheritance then you are to blame. Read that sentence again….slowly…. Its remarkable how many novice witches seem to think they are the cause of every calamity on the planet! Trust me, you would need a hell of a lot of specific intent to pull something like that off and you really don’t need to worry about doing it by accident. But the warning is valid – be too vague with your intent and likely as not your magic won’t work the way you want it to.
The best way to work magic is to really think through the implications of what you want to achieve. Then translate that intention to a specific wording. Magic works on an interpretation of your meaning. Vague and random wording may get the wrong result but literal and immediate attempts to work magic will probably get very little results at all. No matter how hard you try to visualise a stack of £50 notes appearing on your kitchen table, it’s not going to happen!
The spells that really work focus your specific intent into a general purpose. Complicated? Nobody said being a witch was easy…..
