While you might have the right spell or the right spell caster, a spell doesn’t work if the person casting or ordering it isn’t focusing on themselves as part of the spell too. Where your body and brain are will guide the spell just as much as any item you might pick up at a Wicca store. To make sure your spell work is effective, you need to turn inward to see if you’re doing all you can to support the magical being you are.
Treat your body well
Your body will not be able to support magic if you’re not taking care of it. From the time you spend sleeping to the food you add to your plate, the healthier you are, the healthier your magic will be. If you’re currently making choices that don’t support your well-being, it’s time to make a change. You can start by adding a few more glasses of water to your day or five minutes of walking outside. Take small steps to change what you eat, how much you move, and how well rested you are. The smaller the steps, the easier they will be to implement and to sustain.
And you also need to think about the amount of stress you have in your life. Are there ways to reduce the commitments you have? Are there conversations you need to have to reduce tension in relationships? What can you do to be more engaged and less frazzled in your workplace? While it’s nearly impossible to lead a stress-free life, cutting back on stress will help you in your spell work.
Focus on connection
Look around at the people you connect with and call your friends. Are you in balance in your relationships or do you need to focus on being a better friend? You might want to try focusing on listening to your friends more often and potentially saying less. This will help you build a stronger connection with your loved ones and it will show that you care about their lives.
If you look at your friendships and notice that you’re the one who doesn’t get to talk as much, then it might be time to say something. Talk about what you have noticed in your relationship and ask for there to be more space for your feelings and experiences. The more balanced your connections, the more you can tap into magic.
Find the bright side of life
While it’s not possible to be happy 100% of the time, you can train your brain to focus on the positive aspects of life. Whenever something happens, try to find the bright side. For example, if someone cuts you off in traffic, you could try to explain why they needed to make that decision. You could be upset at them OR you could offer the possibility that they were in a hurry because someone they love was in trouble.
In every moment, try to think positively. You can choose to find more positive phrases for your communication or to simply find ways to be the one in the group that points out the good stuff in the world. Notice the beauty in the world around you, e.g. the baby who smiles at you, the falling leaves, the spider web, etc. When you start to focus on what’s positive, you’ll attract positive energy too.
Above all, know that you are a magical being and someone who can bring magic into their life. No matter how experienced you are (or not), you have the power to invite happiness and joy into your world. You are already a magical success story.
