I thought I would post this because I have been working with someone lately that doesn’t seem to get what I am telling them. Now, I have tried to help a few people here on this forum lately with some things so I don’t want anyone here to read this and assume I am talking about them, because I’m not and the following really is just a very common issue. Actually I got this idea while working with someone on another forum, and this person just doesn’t seem to get the importance of this, and I have been trying to teach this person the following information for the last 3 months but they never grasp exactly what I am saying, and every few days they write me back saying nothing is working without ever stopping to think about why it’s not working.
Instead of asking why, what could I be doing differently, they just keep asking for different spells when one does not work. But maybe this information would be beneficial to anyone who seems to be having problems and is convinced their magick just isn’t working. This may possibly be the number one reason why. Because other people I have spoken to have had no problems and caught on right away, so it has to be the person, not the magick. Especially when that person was given one of E.A.s spells to use and those don’t work for him either, you know he is doing something wrong because so far, all of Eric’s spells have been powerful and effective for me and others.
The power of letting go, the law of reversed effort. I see so many magicians going thru a rough time and they come to other magicians for help, their efforts fail and in a few days they contact the other magician again saying it didn’t work what else can I do? Usually, the reason it did not work was not because the person seeking help lacks power, or because the magician that helped them doesn’t know what they are talking about either. 99.8% of the time it’s because the magician asking for help is experiencing such a bad problem that it’s near impossible for them to let go, which is understandable, humans are driven by emotions, but the only way the problem will ever get resolved is if the magician asking for help can truly let go, and distract themself with mundane things and forget about the problem as best as they are able.
And if the problem is something you cannot help but be reminded of daily, maybe it’s something you have to deal with daily, then when the emotions arise again you just have to remind yourself to stop thinking about it, go lock yourself in your room and do something else, go for a walk, etc. Out of sight out of mind. Devote all your time to reminding yourself to let go. I know, that seems just as annoying as thinking about it 24/7 but eventually letting go will become second nature to you and it only further serves to remind yourself, hey this is not worth thinking about to the point it affects my happiness.
But until any magician is able to effectively practice the law of reversed effort after a working, they can do the working 8 times and try 20 different versions of ultimately the same spell and it will never work because the second they realize nothing has happened yet again after 2 or 3 days, they start dwelling on the problem again which allows the problem to remain in their life or come right back. Don’t try to rush things along, don’t expect results instantly because although for some of us results do come almost instantly, it may not happen like for every person or for every spell.
If you were able to deal with a long term problem for x amount of weeks or months, then you can surely manage to handle waiting for x amount of weeks until the spell to remove the problem manifests. The hard part is already over now, you have resorted to magickal means to remove the problem, so you are just one step closer to removing the source of it, don’t ruin it now by dwelling on it or the magick will either not manifest or it may reverse itself.
So many people have told me, but I am forgetting about it. I swear I’m not thinking about it 24/7. Yes you are! Even if you are not thinking about the problem 24/7 you are still thinking about it way too much and I know you are because you contact me every 2-3 days when the problem does not vanish overnight and you ask me what did I do wrong this time? or are you sure the spell you gave me is a good one? Do it usually give good results for you? and so on. Their response tells me they ARE dwelling on it.
The hardest part about this is that some spells require you to forget about the problem for 2-3 weeks maybe even a few months for the goal to manifest which is really hard to do if the problem is so bad that you yearn for immediate results to maintain your happiness and sanity. But if you can forget the source of the problem, even if the source constantly plagues you for the next few weeks or months, then you can achieve almost anything magickal after that.
Look, I am the world’s worst for letting go. If someone crosses the line with me and goes far enough to push my big red “Do NOT push me” button, there is no turning back and that person is now on my vengeance list. Same with helping others, I refuse to give up on people too easily if I know they can be helped but lack the work effort, so I am one of those people that does not let go easily and was recently faced with a situation where I thought the only way to let go and forget about the problem would probably be removing my brain LOL, because it was the main source of my not letting go.
But I got thru it, and now it comes second nature. So if someone as stubborn as I am can effectively practice reversed effort, anyone can. Because I used to be driven solely by my emotions which is a bad mistake, especially when doing magick and in life in general. Emotions are deceitful, they make you act upon what your mind wants you to do at that current time instead of waiting things out and doing what is best for you in the long run. My emotions ruined my life in so many ways over the years that I decided they would no longer have any importance to me at all and now I turn my emotions off almost 24/7 and have a blank look on my face at all times.
People that know me hate this, because they cannot tell if I am happy, sad, angry, what have you by my facial expressions and body language, they have no clue what I am thinking until I speak to make my feelings known. It has served me well. In fact, I have mastered this technique so well that I no longer need medication for bipolar, I have completely forced all bipolar emotions and reactions out of my body and have not been medicated for it in over 4 years, even had to switch doctors because my doc was convinced this was impossible and I was lying to myself, she just kept telling me, you just wait until you have a bipolar fit explosion and it catches up to you.
No she was just mad because I no longer allowed her to charge me for meds I did not need, meds that never even worked back when I thought I did need them. I only wanted to keep going to see my therapist to have someone to vent anger to on occasion in privacy but she would not allow it. But I have practiced the law of reversed effort, of forgetting, of not having any emotional attachment to my workings so much that it changed me for the better in so many ways.
