I forgot to add that I have 2 other spells going on my alter at the same time. One is the Intranquile Spirit spell and another is a black candle to cause division between a rivalry. I think the negative energy coming from the black candle may have interfered with the Lust Spell. However, I will start the spell over once the others are done.
black candles do not create a negative energy theu absorb negative energies, and in all likelyness you must wait to see your results before anything can be diffinitive, to start things off did you annoint the candle with any oils? if so with which oils?
also did you have a protection circle invoked around you or no?
and finally what intentions did you have for these spells?
i do agree with that, many higher level and older spells do require some very exotic and rare items. But thats the problem with those spells, they were made for a different time when that kind of thing was more abbundant then it is now.
And i do agree that much of the craft today is treated like a children's toy and i hold nothing against you for treating people like that children.
Still there are better methods for him to take rather then spend such an ammount of money on such an exotic and odd item. There are better methods which require him to do some serious time commitment instead of financial commitment, and it was just for your safety fragarach that i offer this because it does seem like a scam in ways... unless honesty is a well practiced, seasoned, and knowledgable practitioner of the craft.
