Sometimes members on here with experience in magick witness beginners inadvertantly stepping into the land of, frankly, delusion, and running the risk of misleading others in turn.
While no-one on this forum can claim to be the reality police, it is something that many of us observe, so I thought a constructive way to handle it would be for people with experience in getting results with our magick, to share methods and ideas we use, or experiences we have that are on topic, to help beginners also raise their game.
My main recommendation is ask for material results of some kind; could be a cheese sandwich, to have your boss say a specific thing to you praising your work, or a material item like jewellery, a coat, or a sum of money.
This helps you verify which spirits/voices to trust, and which not to trust.
I also recommend offering readings (once you have been active for three months, per this rule) and asking for honest detailed feedback about how you can improve.
That way, you can avoid misleading yourself or not being able to filter signal from the noise…
I invite others, Regular or not, to share their own constructive thoughts on this.
