There seems to be a misconception on what spells are/are not. Just putting my two cents in, as I am seeing a continuing trend:
Spells are there to help aide with things you have already in motion- i.e. Cast a spell to lose weight: if you eat donuts as your sole source of food, you cannot nor will lose weight
Spells cannot change your DNA. You cannot become male if female, you cannot become a vampire/werewolf or any other mythical creature in this physical world.
If you have not been able to follow the basics prior to spell casting (grounding/meditation etc) casting will be near impossible.
Spells to get money: if they all worked, we would all be millionaires. If you cast for a new job, please do not expect a call from your dream job that you have not applied to.
I feel that spells/spell casting are an extension of Self, and depending on where you are personally in your journey will depend on what spells will work.
*****Please let me know your views, as I could be completely wrong, but have found as a personal truth, that spells can help on things currently working on, not to make something happen out of thin air******
I agree. People expect spells to be big and flashy, due to movies, books and such, but actually, they are more subtle. If you cast a spell for money, you may find a penny. If you cast a spell for love, you need to get out there and meet people in order for it to work. ^_^
