4 years ago I was a penniless man who had to look under the sofa cushions for enough money to buy a single green candle. I lit the candle in my first attempt at a “real spell” (outside of the whole psi vamp stuff) and poured my heart out to the Universe/God/The Big What It Is. I explained that I had no money and that I desperately wanted to attended the University of my choice, I needed the money to do that. I needed the money to get out of my Podunk town and move to a whole new State and pay for school…etc.
I knew what I wanted to be and I needed a college degree to get it. As I kept talking emotions arose in me: Depression at my current state, Anger at my parents for being poor with money, anger at myself for about a million things. At the end I finally broke down and cried, exhausted I blew the candle out.
A week later I received an acceptance letter to the University, then it happened like a dam breaking, all the obstacles in my way seemed to disappear and a few months later I was in class!
I just received an email from my school letting me know that I am officially a graduate. I broke down and cried again. It was not easy in the slightest, as some obstacles were swept away new ones arose in their place. But this four year spell has seen me grow in both things temporal and spiritual. I have had my ass handed to me and had no other choice but to pick myself up and look life in the eye and inform it that it hits like bitch.
Today I got another confirmation that while it is rarely easy, magic works.
