On the last new moon I began a spell. I was able to complete the portion of the spell that was required that night. However, this spell called for the caster to meditate and visualize each night following until the candle was burned out. I was able to do this for about 5 nights, but the candle was only about half way. At that point (from unrelated sources) I became aware of a family member who is dying and will be on hospice for the next week. I have been unable to complete the spell each night due to my now crazy schedule. Once I had more things under control and was ready to resume (which I'm not even sure I can do) I became very sick. I am now finally feeling well enough to practice, but I am afraid I will need to start over. I know the spell was powerful since the day after I cast the major portion some of what I asked was brought to me. I need to finish this, but am unsure if it is wise to continue after such interruption or if I should wait until the next new moon and begin again.
