Spell work isn't just lighting a candle and chanting specific words in the exact right way and then in the next 2 minutes your lights start flickering, or like in the movie flower petals float across the country. No, generally you work your spell by preparing whatever steps you feel are necessary, then you say the words you prepared (even if they aren't perfect, so long as it doesn't break your concentration), then you release the energy when you've felt it's built up enough. After that, the changes that you wanted to make may come very gradually, and you may not even notice them until you wake up one day and go "Oh my gods! It actually worked, and I didn't even realize it." But the most important ingredient in spell work is belief. You have to believe it will actually work. Have faith, know that what you are doing is powerful and will bring about changes.
If you sit down with a spell that you found thinking, "I'm gonna try this magic stuff and see if it actually works," nine times out of ten it won't work ... Why? Because deep down those that go about it that way don't believe it will actually work. They think it's just a bunch of mumbo jumbo and they want to prove themselves right. It's just like if you believe you can actually do something, or not, either way you are right. Magic works because we strongly believe it will. It can be fickle and it doesn't have to prove itself to anyone. If you light a candle thinking I don't believe this will actually work, but I'm going to try it, most of the time it won't work because again, magic doesn't have to prove itself to anyone. However, there are those that sit down with a candle and have enough imagination to see something actually happening and even if they aren't sure it will work, they hope it will ... that hope is what will bring about the changes you asked for in that spell. So, that is what I leave you with this fine semi-autumn night. Magic works because you believe it does. And love truly does exist!
