5 Mistakes All Witches Make (And How To Avoid Them)

The second time I cast a major money spell, it completely backfired.

Don’t get me wrong–I got the job and I got the raise (money magick is no joke, Beauties). However, it came at the expense of my comfort and sanity, and when all was said and done, it hardly seemed worth it. Five years and oodles of spells later, it’s clear to me where I bungled things up, and I’m here to share what I’ve learned so you can avoid the same blunders and oversights!

Avoid “Manic Manifesting”

Ever cast a spell from a space of complete and utter desperation? It sounds a little something like this: “To whomever or whatever’s floating out there in the cosmic consciousness: I will sacrifice literally ANYTHING if you give me A. Please, PLEASE give this thing to me. IF I CAN’T HAVE IT, I’LL DIE.”

This is pretty much how I cast my money spell, and the universe was like you asked for it and gave me job where I’d have to drive through rush hour traffic every single day. The stress that commute caused was absolute hell, and if I’d known better, I would have included some sort of post-script that said “only if it makes my life better, not worse.” Which leads me to my next tip…

Don’t Cast Spells Without adding “In the Highest Good Of All”

Or “with the best possible results” or some other such statement that takes unknown consequences into account. On the “woo” level, this lets the universe know that you aren’t willing to sacrifice something better for this outcome, and on the practical level, it programs you to keep your options open and make self-loving, soul-resonant decisions.

If You Don’t Know What You Want, Don’t Cast a Spell

I know this sounds obvious, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve cast spells for things I thought I wanted, but didn’t actually want (hint: if you’re feeling anxious as opposed to confident when you’re casting a spell, chances are you’re not in alignment with what you’re asking for).The way to avoid this pitfall is to search yourself and generate soul-resonant intentions, a process I teach in Spell Bound: Get What You Want With Magick That Works.

Don’t Use Materials You Don’t Give a Fig About

Does that spell you found on the internet have a list of herbs you’ve never heard of? Do you keep crafting sigils when they don’t really move or interest you? Is your altar filled with items that hold zero personal significance, but are appropriately “witchy”? If you’re using materials that don’t resonate, you’re robbing your spells of potency and efficacy. (Want to generate a list of tools that light your soul on fire? I teach this in the course too.)

Don’t Doubt Yourself

Wanna know what takes the air out of a spell faster than anything else? The belief that what you’re about to do won’t work. If you know in your bones that magick is malarkey and there’s no way that it can benefit you, you’ve created a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you come to your altar with an open heart and and open mind, however, infinite possibilities open before you.
