Confidence (I have doubt)
By:
Post # 1
I'm having trouble believing that what I will do will work- I have no trouble believing in other people's magic, but mine is always "not working" in my mind. I realize that this (probably) is because I doubt it will work before I start. But I've set myself up for disappointment so many times I find it hard to gain any confidence anymore. Visualisations/Practices/Meditations (etc.) for this?

(This concern mostly stems from me not believing whatever AP technique will work for me, but the few magic spells/rituals I do are also interrupted by this.)

Thank you for your time! ^^

If you don't believe that your spell will work, it won't.

I know you may have your doubts, but try, just try. If it doesn't work then try again.

Try working with Aphrodite. Make her offerings and ask for her help when it comes to your spell work and self confidence. I'd research her and try working with her because she's a great goddess when it comes to love in all forms, like self love which should boost your confidence in spells and with yourself. Like Eucatopia said magic takes time, practice, and belief so keep on trying and do your best because everyone is capable of it :)

you believe in magick. you believe in others magick. but you don't believe in your own, why is that? i would journal work and look inside for these answers. you need to build your inner strength. you can do magick, tell yourself you can do it, and push any nagging doubt aside.

you might want to find an affirmation, phrase, or power word that gives you strength and makes you feel good. [if you've got low esteem this can feel/sound silly to you at first. work through those negative voices in your head] my first apartment had a mirror screwed to the wall in the entrance and i wrote on it, drew on it, and covered it with positive things so whenever the mirror did catch my eye, i would notice the words/drawings first. [if you can write your phrase on your bathroom mirror, or somewhere you look every day, it can make it easier] i could provide a few quotes i like if you want, try keeping it simple though, 'joy' or 'i am magickal' for example. if you want a chant to say when you wake up you could too.

meditation can also help, you might also want to do more energy work to feel the energy flow through you to prove to yourself you can do this.

One technique -- not directly related to magic -- which some chaotes choose to use is suspension of disbelief. That is, they train themselves to believe in something purely for the purpose of a working. It is a skill to overcome your doubts. You need faith in yourself, your results, and in whichever entities you believe may be involved with the work, if you call for their aid.
