“What am I doing wrong in my spell-work? My spells are failing, even backfiring!” my friend, Jennifer, said, anguish in her voice.
As part of our conversation, I gave her some tips from my book The Hidden Children of the Goddess.
“You need several things to do successful magick.
To do successful magick, you need to understand several things. First, you must have an intent. You need to know what you want to manifest. Having a solid intent is your first step before you do any magick.
This is the process of focusing and then refocusing your mind on your visualization task. In essence, you concentrate on the object and on the images in your mind that are specific for your desired manifestation
You need to see what you want in your mind as already accomplished.
The Collins English Dictionary defines willpower as “the ability to control oneself and determine one’s actions.” When it comes to successfully performing magick, willpower, to me, means the driving force of desire for some form of change. So I focus on the power of “I will.” This is an important distinction because many people think of willpower as only the ability to avoid temptation.”
[The above is the end of an abbreviated excerpt from my book, The Hidden Children of the Goddess.]
Check the Moon Phase
Is the moon phase helping or hindering your spell? Maybe your spell needs to be reworded to help it work more effectively. Take care to be quite specific in your wording.
Pick the Right Day of the Week
Different days are associated with different Deities and purposes, so choose a day that will lend energy to your spell.
Below is an abbreviated list.

Magick is Like Water
Magick is like water that flows the easiest way down the mountain. Vague wording diverts your spell to an easy and wrong path. Be careful about your wording.
Be sure to follow the steps above and continue studying.
The Gods want to help you get what you want.
Do your part and get your spell-work in good shape.
