Here are 10 mistakes witches need to avoid. Let's check it out! Don't forget Witch Clothing collection
1. Unrealistic expectations
Magic is not a tool to help you realize your dreams, it makes your life so easy and perfect. Forget fiction and movies, you won't be like Doctor Strange or Harry Potter, it doesn't work that way.
This is why many people are disappointed and abandon magic in the first place. The problem is because of unrealistic expectations. Magic only stops at a natural level and balances energy. You take energy in the universe to serve spells and you have to return a corresponding amount. And of course, it is impossible to make Earth into a square according to one's mind.
2. Advertising words that are "simple" spells
Some people when starting to learn about magic, they want the magic to have quick and easy results, they think that they need to start with "real magic books" with "real spells".
The mistake here is that thinking magic will do anything for you without the knowledge and skills behind what you do. Magic is a method, it's great, they are like recipes. Spells do not have powers, but we are power. And knowledge is a part of that.
3. Meditation is not important, is it?
If you think meditation is sitting there and doing nothing, I bet you will feel that you are wasting your time and don't want to do this. However, the main tool of magic is the mind, and training the mind is an essential part of learning magic. Spiritual training is something that is not only difficult to overcome but it is throughout your life, as long as you practice magic. Even if you are an opponent of this, when you have practiced Zen, you will realize its value and automatically change your thoughts to spend more time on it.
4. "I have already a guide, I don't need to read other books"
Have you ever seen the titles claiming to be the "The only book about witchcraft you'll need"? If so, put it back in the bookshelf and don't care. Books are good mentors in mysticism, and the more you read, the more you will benefit and not harm. This also encourages you to read a variety of mystical books.
Hey, wisdom never grows on the tree for us to pick! You will have to be a cultivator!
5. Using components as fixed rules
There are two schools of theology. The first is that magic is a precise science, requiring precision in combining elements, words, gestures, symbols, etc. to get results.
The second school is that you can adjust the components or modify the spell as needed. Witches combine their energy with the energy of any tool or component to create energy sent into the universe. My opinion is that magic needs to be "personalized". In your mind, red energy is associated with prosperity and wealth instead of green. If you do not find this in green as in the spell, you really have trouble visualizing.
6. "This component is irreplaceable"
Nothing is irreplaceable. Of course, the replacement must be relative. Honestly, nothing on this planet is the only thing that can be used. Think of ancient wizards, before you could easily order a bunch of sage from a mouse click before those ancient people came into contact with cultures outside the region. If obsidian and chicken bones are abundant, then ivory, iron, and blueberries are the local produce we have, which can also be used.
9. Emotions are not important
This is wrong. A major part of energizing is emotional development. You cannot use a spell to bring love to you while you are angry and negative. The emotional state should be in line with the goal, if you are not eliminating unfavorable emotions for the spell, postpone until you are ready.
10. "Don't believe that you succeed"
When you use a spell, you increase your energy. It does most of the time while you do it, but that energy actually starts when you plan and continue while you wait for the results. When you suspect what you do is like splashing water on a hot coal, you disable it. Each spell takes a period of time and can take up to 2 weeks to perform.
