this might be a stupid question, but I’ve been wondering for a while now.
It is widely believed that rituals/evocations/spells only work when the magician is absolutely sure that it will happen.
Maybe I should explain, that, although I haven’t been able to actually see or hear a spirit with my astral senses yet, I still don’t believe in the theory that spirits are a part of our own unconscious.
I’ve read too many credible stories from magicians who changed the world and other people in a way that can’t be explained by subtle changes in your own brain
Now back to my question: Why is it so important that you fully believe in what you are doing? Is this creating the power that is necessary for a spirit to show or for a spell to work?
And what else could be a reason that rituals/evocations are not working?
Right now I’m struggling a little, but I definitely had times when I did believe in it 100%, especially after reading success stories and doing Koetting’s course.
I used the search function and found it funny that in pretty much every sigil post people reported better results with Koetting’s way of charging than with Spare’s self-created sigils.
For me it’s the exact opposite: Spare’s method works 50:50 (please remember that it is not supposed to give better results), Koetting’s method doesn’t work for me at all.
Sometimes I do see changes in the sigil that seem to be more than the typical optical phenomenon of glowing that you get after a while.
lines are disappearing and re-appearing, and sometimes the wohle thing “jumps” into my face, kind of 3D-like.
but the results are missing.
again because I have doubts whether the sigil has been charged properly?
but I thought once it has been charged, it is in your subconscious, just like the Spare-sigil?
I really have no idea.
Thanks for reading, maybe you can help me.
