Hi last night I tried a time spell and then i went to bed and when i woke up it was 8am, i get up at 9am so i went back to sleep when i woke up a second time it was 6am im new to this so does anyone out there think it worked or am i just imagining things

Einstein would disagree with you. Time does exist, and you can travel into the future, but not into the past. The closer you are able to approach the speed of light, the more time speeds up around you. For example, if you were on a rocket ship and flew very close to the speed of light for 1 year, when you returned to Earth, it would have been 50 years on Earth.

For the fun of discussion.. according to Einstein's E=mc2 equation that theory would not be feasibly possible, because as an object begins to approach the speed of light, it's mass rises and would eventually become infinite when reaching 186,000 miles per second. If mass becomes infinite, so does the energy required to move it. Precisely the reason a regular object can't travel the same speed, or faster, than light. Besides, that would be more so like changing your perception of time, rather than traveling through it.

While it's true that it would require a tremendous amount of energy to travel close to the speed of light, Einstein's theory does support travelling into the future.
The following is from:
Members of the Tripoli Minnesota Rocket Club #45 ask a very intriguing question this month: Is time travel possible?
Time travel is one of my favorite topics! I wrote some time travel stories in junior high school that used a machine of my own invention to travel backwards in time, and I have continued to study this fascinating concept as the years have gone by.
We all travel in time. During the last year, I've moved forward one year and so have you. Another way to say that is that we travel in time at the rate of 1 hour per hour.
But the question is, can we travel in time faster or slower than "1 hour per hour"? Or can we actually travel backward in time, going back, say 2 hours per hour, or 10 or 100 years per hour?
It is mind-boggling to think about time travel. What if you went back in time and prevented your father and mother from meeting? You would prevent yourself from ever having been born! But then if you hadn't been born, you could not have gone back in time to prevent them from meeting.
The great 20th century scientist Albert Einstein developed a theory called Special Relativity. The ideas of Special Relativity are very hard to imagine because they aren't about what we experience in everyday life, but scientists have confirmed them. This theory says that space and time are really aspects of the same thingspace-time. There's a speed limit of 300,000 kilometers per second (or 186,000 miles per second) for anything that travels through space-time, and light always travels the speed limit through empty space.
Special Relativity also says that a surprising thing happens when you move through space-time, especially when your speed relative to other objects is close to the speed of light. Time goes slower for you than for the people you left behind. You won't notice this effect until you return to those stationary people.
Say you were 15 years old when you left Earth in a spacecraft traveling at about 99.5% of the speed of light (which is much faster than we can achieve now), and celebrated only five birthdays during your space voyage. When you get home at the age of 20, you would find that all your classmates were 65 years old, retired, and enjoying their grandchildren! Because time passed more slowly for you, you will have experienced only five years of life, while your classmates will have experienced a full 50 years.
So, if your journey began in 2003, it would have taken you only 5 years to travel to the year 2053, whereas it would have taken all of your friends 50 years. In a sense, this means you have been time traveling. This is a way of going to the future at a rate faster than 1 hour per hour.
Time travel of a sort also occurs for objects in gravitational fields. Einstein had another remarkable theory called General Relativity, which predicts that time passes more slowly for objects in gravitational fields (like here on Earth) than for objects far from such fields. So there are all kinds of space and time distortions near black holes, where the gravity can be very intense.
In the past few years, some scientists have used those distortions in space-time to think of possible ways time machines could work. Some like the idea of "worm holes," which may be shortcuts through space-time. This and other ideas are wonderfully interesting, but we don't know at this point whether they are possible for real objects. Still the ideas are based on good, solid science. In all time travel theories allowed by real science, there is no way a traveler can go back in time to before the time machine was built.
I am confident time travel into the future is possible, but we would need to develop some very advanced technology to do it. We could travel 10,000 years into the future and age only 1 year during that journey. However, such a trip would consume an extraordinary amount of energy. Time travel to the past is more difficult. We do not understand the science as well.
Actually, scientists and engineers who plan and operate some space missions must account for the time distortions that occur because of both General and Special Relativity. These effects are far too small to matter in most human terms or even over a human lifetime. However, very tiny fractions of a second do matter for the precise work necessary to fly spacecraft throughout the solar system.
While travelling into the future may not be possible right now, new sources of energy could make it possible.

As well as reading Einstein, one should also read Hawkin.
Both theories are that time is motion. And the motion is "relative" to where an object is at any given "time".
For instance, Einstein gives the example of being on a fast moving train.The telegraph poles flash by rapidly, because they are near to to the train track. But the house two miles away stays "in sight" for a very long time.The "time" is "relative" to the distance away from the object viewed.
So, the theory is that our galaxy (and others) are "expanding", and when the limit of that expansion is reached, the galaxy will start to "collapse" and "come together again".Then "time" will reverse!
These are "theories" of course, and have yet to be really proven.

also on the note of "time travel" time does exist, it's a force of nature almost as gravity is, however to travel at the speed of light in our day and age wouldn't be possible, however you can quantum teleport, quantum science strongly backs up traveling parallel to time if you will, seeing as you aren't traveling ahead in time, nor back in time, rather traveling so instant that you are what i would like to say, parallel with time,quantum physics is very intriguing to me
