When I really began to get into the practicing side of magick rather than just studying it and being the armchair magician, I remember a video that EA did (not sure if it’s on YouTube or if it is in one of the programs) where he said that once you begin doing these things they will affect your life greatly. However, if you stop, you will begin to see a slump as bad things happen. I’ve been througn the slump several times before, bringing bad thoughts and circumstances to me time and time again. Hopefully this time around I will learn my lesson.
But, i’m beginning to worry that it is also playing a role with those I care for. For example, with those whom I have used magick to help - they have seen great results and I have been overwhelmed and happy each time when magick worked out to aid them. However, when I have gone into slumps I have begun to see that so do they. The people who do not practice, but who I help, are also going into slumps with me. Recently I have seen it happen with two close friends of mine and even my family. The more magick I do the more benefits I see in my life and their lives, but as soon as I begin to slack on it they begin to tumble down with me.
I don’t want them to me tied to my mistakes or lack-of practicing magick, but I can’t help but wonder if they are. I want to help them and improve their lives, but if my mistakes with magick are dragging them down with me then I would rather not do it. Is this something that has happened with any others on here as well? Is there any way I can keep my mistakes in my practice from affecting and bringing them down? Am I, and they, locked into this against our wills in a sense?
