Imagine each person being surrounded by an energy field full of particles that are the energetic interpretation of the persons thoughts, emotions and inner desires. These particles are responsible for forming the persons reality, their reactions and their external desires.
When a person does not love you (or have the feelings you desire them to have for you), it simply means those energetic particles are not present in their external energy field – because they are not naturally internally present.
What magick does, is it energetically inserts those desired energetic particles into the targets energy field.
In a sense, it works like a virus or radiation. By surrounding the target with the energy of the desired effect, the targets energy field becomes “contaminated” with new thoughts, desires and in turn: actions.
If and when the “contamination” is persistent and magickally performed properly, the result will be a thorough seep into the physical and emotional mind of the target.
The thoughts and emotions you have planted inside the targets mind will begin to feel as if they are their own.
Once the thoughts and emotions are planted, the target will begin acting upon them.
No, a spell cannot backfire. The spell simply works or it doesn't.
The backfire myth is propagated by those who are operating from a fear consciousness (and shouldn't be doing spellwork in the first place) or have simply very poor judgement regarding the desired outcome of their spellwork.
For example, if a woman curses her ex-husband and then struggles when he can no longer send her the alimony/child support checks.
Well of course! If you curse someone, they will most likely lose their financial well-being, and in turn, will no longer be able to pay their bills.
The curse did not backfire. The woman simply shot herself in the foot. It's poor planning and poor judgement.
Don't curse the hand that feeds you.
A Witch is a label: Claiming yourself as a worker and transmitter of energy. Living with the powers and tides of the Earth, the Moon and the Sun.
Compare the art of witchcraft or magick to the art of painting or playing a musical instrument. It's fair to say that most people can learn to play the piano, paint a lake in watercolor, etc., But there are of course those who are simply born with more musical talent or artistic ability than others.
Same goes for magick and witchcraft. These skills can always be taught, but some are born with more natural ability than others.
Many people who are naturally drawn to this path have more of a knack for energy work and magickal abilities. If you found your path to this page, more than likely you have this special skill!
