I have noticed that the amount of people jumping to blame medical issues or other problems, on occult practices is on the rise. While it sometimes cannot be ruled out, most times it is completely unrelated. Someone cursed you, but you don't know any occultists? Someone got in an accident due to recklessness, but it must be a demon that made it happen? Come on now people, this is getting rediculous. I have done this myself at one point, with my illness. Honestly I think it is the superstition, the fear of the unknown, or perhaps for some it is just boredom and ignorance combined.
When something bad happens, do not jump to blame magic. Do not jump to turn to magic. It is a wonderful thing to practice, to enlighten your life, to experiment and enhance your life with it. However it should not be an end all be all thing.
Suffering from depression, suicidal thoughts, being beaten by someone, feeling threatened? Speak to a health professional or call the cops if serious. We cant magically *poof* some form of help for you or answers to everything. Granted there are things that may help, but these matters are serious and should not wait for a spell to possibly work.
Looking to spice up your love life? Get out and meet like minded people. Spend time doing things you enjoy, with others. This makes you happier and is bound to get attention. Freshen up your appearance. Hang out with a new crowd. Sure you can do a love spell but if you sit on your butt at home after doing so it likely will not help you. Also helps if you know yourself, and love yourself. This is very attractive. Not that you should get a big ego, but having confidence and showing you can care for yourself means that you will care for the other person even better than if you are always looking down on yourself ;)
For the werevampbunnytoaster (or whatever fluff >.>) Want to be something special and get attention? Do something with your life. Even more importantly, learn who you really are, and learn to love yourself for it. Everyone goes through a phase where they want to be something more or something better. You ARE something more. People rarely realize their own potential, and often see their flaws more than others do. Stop worrying so much over what you cannot change, and do something to better your life rather than trying to be some being that you cannot be.
That being said, magic is wonderful to practice. It can help you to attune to the energies of the world and universe around you. It can help to nudge things in the direction you wish, as you take the physical means to bring it to frution. You could be a natural at it, or it may take you a long time to get the hang of things. It is definitely something I feel is worth the effort and time. BUT once again it is not something you should just turn to in a crisis, and ignore safer and more sure methods over. I know some will disagree with this, but I felt the need to say it anyways. Best wishes on your path, and blessings to you! This will be my last post for quite some time, as I have realized only physical means will help with my own situation.
