I have read up about the different things that need be done to cast a successful spell, and am working on getting better when it comes to certain things. In the meantime, I have been practicing a few simple spells and I'm not sure which spells have really worked and what I've just "imagined" to have worked because I have such a strong belief that the spells will work. For instance, I've done a spell for forgiveness,and three days later I saw major success in my situation so I thought the spell worked but then two weeks later I learned that this person completely lied about his forgiveness and my situation became worse. Also, I've done a spell to get my lover to call me and he did within 5 minutes the first time I tried the spell but now a month later, I've tried doing the same spell and have practiced harder to make it work yet it's not working and it's making me doubt that the spell worked the first time around and that it was simply chance that he called me at that time.
I've been interested in magic/witchcraft/astrology since I was a child and I don't want to get discouraged and give up but I'm not sure how much time/effort/money I should put into my latest hobby if it's not really working for me.
Am I not meant to get what I am asking for? Do you ever feel like your spells don't really work even though things happen to make you feel as if the spell caused certain things to happen?
