Have you done spells and found them to fail, or worse, give you the opposite of your intention?
How does this happen? Many of us grow up with authority figures who program us with beliefs that are harmful.
When we do spellwork, we begin with an intention. We want something good for our lives.
However, a subconscious counter-intention can cause havoc to your spellwork.
A counter-intention can be a negative internal push that is against or is opposing your positive conscious intention for your spell.
So, what can we do to save our spells from counter-intentions?
Here are three insights:
- Identify and make a list of harmful ideas that authority figures pressed upon you.
Take a journal or piece of paper and write down the harmful ideas you were programmed with as a child.
Here are some examples:
- We can’t afford that.
- All rich people are bad.
- You can’t do that.
- You’re not good enough at ______.
- You can’t make a career out of doing ______.
If you have trouble unearthing the harmful ideas, you may want to do a meditation and look for them within. You can use the Tarot to help you along the way as well.
2. Identify your true intentions.
Once you have identified some harmful ideas that may be holding you back, it’s time to look at them and consider something different.
Consider the opposite of a harmful idea.
I have a friend who has a father who thinks every rich person has done something bad to get rich.
What can be an opposite idea to that?
You could think about: “What can I do that is good and which creates value for all involved?”
My friend met Richard Carlson, the author of Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff. My friend said, “Richard Carlson was a man who helped people as a psychotherapist. Then he became prosperous with his series of books. There was no crime in that. He helped people.”
So, my friend cited Richard Carlson’s life experience as evidence that a person can do good things and open the door to financial abundance.
What good ideas can you focus on?
3. Use the Tarot to understand it all
How do you make sense of it all? This is where your magickal tools come in. The Tarot or another divinatory tool can help you clarify what is going on.
For example, The Tarot can help you identify some hidden belief.
Use your Tarot cards or other divinatory tool and ask questions like:
- What truth am I hiding from?
- What untruth am I defending?
Additionally, you can identify a hidden positive intention in yourself. You can ask a question like: What can I learn to transform my subconscious counter-intentions and improve my spellwork?
Such information may help you pick a new direction to travel for your life path.
May these insights help you on your journey.
