Well you have to remember one of the basic principles EA taught(my apologies if you didn’t know or work through EA’s books. I’m not trying to discredit your knowledge or experience.) Which was to distance yourself emotionally, psychologically, and physically from the desire and ritual itself afterwards. So basically by waiting for results, your putting pressure on the systems at work and basically sabotaging your own handi-work. This is why EA puts emphasis on returning to normal consciousness after a ritual. Make a sandwhich, go for a run, excersize, have sex. Lol. Anything that can take your mind away from what you just did and forget. Depending on how deeply into Theta you went, doing this will even make the ritual seem dreamlike or far away, making it easier to forget about the desire. This was reinforced to me by Dante, telling me that in order to make these changes you have to “push” and “force” those Desirea out of you during ritual to the point where you pretty much DONT CARE about it. Which is something I’m still grasping with. Lol. I understand that it’s VERY difficult(at least for me) to forget about something that I wanted badly enough to even perform a ritual for, but the better you get at it, the better the results. EA even said in one of his books that his desire was usually fulfilled the minute he completely forgot about it or the work he had done. Magick is almost like an Oxymoron. The harder you try and struggle and desire, the worse it usually ends up. That’s why, the more success you receive with each ritual compounds into the next because you start to realize that there’s nothing to worry or wait for so you don’t even think about it, which of course manifests it even faster. Waiting is pretty much a veiled form of slight doubt. Once you KNOW you already have what you ritualized, it will come to you quickly if not immediately. That’s not to say your ritual wont work which I’m sure it will, but as you wait on it you may be keeping it at bay. Hope that helps a bit.
