So I’m pretty much a newbie when it comes to magick. All I can do with any reliability is sense energy and receive emotional information during an invocation. I’m pretty sure I have managed successfully invoke certain entities in the past (and quite recently as well.) However, whenever I try to achieve something specific through occult means, it invariably doesn’t work.
Now the most common advice for this sort of thing is to let go. But that hasn’t helped me at all. My problem afaik is not lusting for results, but what I term the ‘I can’t’ reflex. I mean, I accept that magick is real and that jazz. But I seem to an unfounded notion that it wont work for ME in particular. This feeling is unusually strong for reasons I have yet to discover. I have also tried asking questions and listening for answers during invocation. But all I get is junk no matter who I’m trying to talk to.
I would like some advice on how to break this negative feedback loop
