Waiting for a spell to complete can be an excruciating ordeal. You’ve done the work (or had someone else do it for you), and things don’t happen as quickly as you might like them to happen. You start to worry about what’s going on; is the spell going to work? No matter what your spell entails, or who cast it, there are ways to fill up the time between the casting and the manifestation.
Become an optimist
From the moment you decide to do magic, you need to believe in it. You need to believe the spell you chose is going to work and that it’s going to work in the best way possible for all involved. You need to remember that magic is possible and that spells do work. But when you’re a few days out from the casting, the doubts can creep in. To help fend off those doubts, you can:
Write a positive affirmation and carry it with you – Try “I believe in magic.” Read the note whenever you begin to doubt something is happening.
Be with positive people – If you normally spend time with negative people, you need to change your habits. Be with people who can find the bright side to life.
Challenge negative thoughts – Even if you have negative thoughts (and everyone does), stop the thoughts and challenge them. Say them in a positive way so you can counteract that energy.
Close your eyes and visualize
Another way to pass the time after casting is to visualize the outcome of the spell. Stop and think about what your life will be like when the thing happens. Think about how it will feel to fall in love or to have the healing you need. Stop and close your eyes to see the outcome clearly in your mind. Who is there? What are you feeling? What time of day is it? Try to imagine as many details as possible, using all your senses.
Stop and allow the visualization to take up your entire consciousness. Let it be the same picture you come back to every time you start to waver in your belief about what’s possible. Try thinking about this picture when you’re about to go to sleep so it’s there in your dreams too.
Remember that time is relative
While you might think a spell is taking forever to come to pass, remember that time is relative to energy and to the universe. The universe has been around for far longer than you have, so it has a unique perspective on what time is like. It has stretched across centuries and eons, and it knows that things take the time they take. Instead of worrying about how long things are taking, remind yourself that the timing is perfect. Every time you look at a clock, remind yourself that the universe knows the right time.
You may also want to keep your mind off the time that has passed since the spell was cast. Stop focusing on how long it has been and consider how much closer you are to receiving what you really want in the world. Each day is another day closer to the magic you invited into your life.
In the space between the casting and the manifestation of a spell, you can do something to help. While the magic is already working, the more you can focus and the more you can believe in the right timing for everything, the more likely it is that you will see your magic unfold. Remember, everything happens when it’s meant to happen.
