From my perspective, I would not try to bring something into my life if I were not attached to the outcome. For example: Why would I ask for a redheaded girlfriend if I am not attracted to them? Conversely, the only reason I would try to bring something into my life is if I were attached to the outcome: For example, I want as much money as humanly possible.
So therein lies the problem, I guess, that all new aspiring magicians face. I think I have possibly found a solution (for me): I must first bring a baseline of general happiness into my life through ordinary means (i.e. career advancement through hard work, finding meaningful friends by being social, finding an attractive girlfriend by putting myself out there, and pursuing hobbies, etc). I think that once I bring these major areas into my life on my own, then I can ask for the smaller things through magick. For example: If I have worked hard to purchase a motorcycle, and am content with it, then I can try to bring a different colored seat into my life because I don’t really care one way or the other because I already like my current seat well enough. It makes me sick to come to this conclusion. I had much higher hopes. But I don’t think that there is any way for me to use magick as a way to get any of the basic things that bring me happiness due to the attachment factor.
