> I made an obsession spell because I wanted someone to feel the exact same way I do about them. I performed it, and now I'm absolutely exhausted.
There were SEVERAL steps involved and I did put as much energy as I could into it.
> Is this a normal feeling?

Using your own personal energy to power a spell and pushing as much into the working as you can is absolutely going to leave you drained and tired. It is no different than using up your personal energy to run a race or to do hard work. It is even possible to drain yourself until you feel sick if you aren't careful about what you are doing.

Most experienced practitioners use little if any of their personal energy in a working, preferring to draw upon the energies that are all around us such as the earth itself. Here's an article that you might find helpful in finding alternative means of drawing energy for your spells.

As Lark stated using your personal energy especially regarding larger workings can drain you quickly. Adapting and using energy from other sources can help reduce exhaustion experienced by relying exclusively on personal power.

Items which can add energy into workings include herbs, plants, stones, and metals.

Methods of outside power include,

Planetary bodies including the sun and moon.

Earth energy, raising energy from the earth, directing, and grounding it. Lark's post linked is amazing.

Created Batteries to help power your workings.

Working with deities or other spirits can help bring more energy into ritual work as well.

Here is a video from site editor Hearthwitch you may find useful along with Lark's link.
