The one to smooth the way to reconcile with his friends due to his mistake.
I do agree, I think the spell is working. But not in the way you expected. As I said in your other thread, when you use a general goal, expect anything. The more experienced you become in writing your own spells, the more detailed they will become. Simpler spells with one goal and open possibilites can reach that goal in any way. Sympathetic magick is very sensitive to how you use it. When you wrapped the chamomile, mint, and sugar in blue cloth that belonged to you, you were including yourself into your own magickal influence. I thought you knew that.
In this case, it seems that the key to resolving your situation is you. We don't know how your friends are feeling right now, but if it is effecting you, than it is in progress. Your spell is effecting you in a way to provoke the reconciliation. Perhaps you had some anger and resentment for them too somewhere subconsciously? Some might call this a bit of a "backfire" because it wasn't intended, but I wouldn't consider it "bad". I think that you really should speak with these people again and tell them how you feel. Perhaps this emotion you are experiencing is what you needed all along. The most accepted apology is heartfelt and what is more sincere than tears?
