In some cases. Your supose to learn somthing from what's hapening. (there are some that don't belive in this, and I'm not saying that this is how everting works. But i think most of us agre that a part of learnig/getting stronger, is trou "problems")
and some things dosent you can't just "materialize" if you understand what I'm trying to say:/
most of the working with magick. Needs you to train and so on. Visualisasion, meditation, putting your will/wish into it. Want somthing to change. focusing on it to change. When you go trou this proses. One of the things you do. Is changing yourself and how you think/'hold your self back'. And the "energys" you send out.
I'l putt it a bitt on the "egde" here now. But a great deal of what we call magick. Is acktual just your self. Changing how you look at things and what you send out. Energys. And so on. (don't gett me wrong. I belive in magick, but magick is a term. A thing you call somthing. In the lack of a bether name. Acktualy, I don't care to much what it is, or what you call it. I care about the part, that somehow helps someone or something feel bether. What helps:) )
but again. Somthings you can't that esye change. Even if you do everything posible. And then using "things" that would help in many cases.
That dosent mean you can't do some about it. (example, some kinds of sicknes, or some cases that have to do with others)
