I don’t have all the answers to this one, but I did mess myself up pretty bad getting my husband back. I went psychotic after I allowed unconditional possession by Astaroth. I was like this for days. Lets just say it didn’t destroy “the self” but it destroyed any realization I had about the world. I was so delusional, I thought I was dead and that people were robots.
And, after all of that, he still wants to divorce me and do whatever his cousin suggested. I mean, he quit drinking 4 monster energy drinks a day, but shit is still not resolved. And now I see it could have been much much worse, but I didn’t really want a zombie love slave, but its like he is just a slave to culture and whatever his cousin told him.
Before his sudden declaration of wanting to divorce me, I could never understand why anyone would do love spells, but I was so depressed for like a month prior to that with all the stuff he was doing, and I guess I was so connected to him. I just hope this damn thing doesn’t kill us all.
I wish now I would have gotten on Gnu Jami with someone here who would have talked me out of doing it, but a big part of our dysfunctional relationship was the idea that I should cut connections with people from certain groups because he believed they were the illuminai or something, I don’t know anymore, all craziness. I mean, I could start a group, call it the illuminati, and even if it is just me making up bullshit some people would be naive enough to think the group was running the world cause of all the bullshit conspiracy theories out there.
Actually, I know people are going to foolishly do love spells to get a specific person back, but I would say to anyone considering it, please please talk with a knowledgeable magickally inclined friend or hire a professional before proceeding. I know you want to be arrogant and think you are all gods here, and that is how it starts, you know what happens to gods, they go to hell.
In general however, I don’t think other kinds of magic on average approach the level of danger in love magick. I mean, not that they can’t, but with love magick you are like messing with people at a fundamental level, not just changing what they do on a passing whim or just getting some random person to take an interest in you.
