First of all, sorry if this is in the wrong place. It's related to casting spells, but I'm not sure if the topic is general enough to be here.
Anyway, as the title suggests, I have frequent intrusive thoughts. I've been practicing magickfor several years and it's never been a problem when it came to casting, but since the things I obsess over tend to change, it's starting to impact my practice. I've started having thoughts that spells won't work while I'm performing them, and occasionally I'll have thoughts that a spell will do the opposite of what it's supposed to do (for example, if I did a spell to protect my house, I might have thoughts that it would inflict danger on the house and residents instead).
It's making me a bit concerned that the spells will either not work, or, worse, cause the opposite things to happen, so I've stopped casting for the time being.
I'm just wondering if anyone has experienced this and knows a way to cope with it, or if there's a way to ensure that the thoughts won't interfere with my casting.Or would it be better to simply wait until my mental health improves before resuming casting?
