Who put the WORK in Spellwork? By Mambo Sam
“Opportunity is missed by most people because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work.”
— Thomas Edison
Greetings, everyone! Hope you are all ready fo a great weekend! I know we have talked about this before - the work of spellwork! However, I do think the subject can be revisited over and over again and still be of value!
All too often I hear people say that they think things like our spell kits are "just too much work." It is always a sigh-inducing, eye-rolling moment for me because that statement generally comes from someone who just told me they would do ANYTHING to get Jack (or Jill) back into their lives. Of course we offer solo castings with most of our spells (where I do the work for you), and that is a fine choice for those who are truly too busy (lots of folks working two jobs these days!) or do not have the privacy to do spell work.
However, I fear that sometimes people choose the solo casting just because they think doing their own spell work is just too much work! That is troubling because in the category of "doing anything" to get Jack or Jill back in your life could involve some work!
It could involve spell work! It could involve working on yourself. It could involve working on your relationship, but if you aren't invested enough in the relationship to do some work on it, why do you want that relationship in the first place? I dont' have the answer to that - but I do think it is something worth thinking about!
And let's not get confused about you good folks who occasionally need a break from spell work or adjunct work! There are those who just don't want to do another doll session or light another candle... they are just sick of spell work at the moment.
Now that is something different! Sometimes a little break from spell work is a good thing. It gives you time to refresh your spirit,look at the spellwork with fresh eyes, and regain your energy. The best way to take a break from spell work is during the break to assess the break itself; are you feeling good about the break? Are you feeling that this is a time for you to renew yourself and your purpose? The biggest danger in taking a break sometimes comes in the form of not knowing when the break should be over.
I always tell the folks to whom I recommend a break to be on the look out for signs that their break is over. If you are longing for your voodoo doll, or you start to miss the comfort and ritual of your candle magick, or you feel an incredible pull back into the work - those kinds of things are clear signs that your break is over!
Lately I have been literally bombarded with stories of clients and the success of their spellwork! :-) Needless to say, that is always amazingly awesome to hear! As I have mentioned before, I do notice a very common thread in these success stories - these are very often folks who were dedicated to that work, had a real heart for it, and stuck to their guns even in the face of adversity. Their success is inspiring!
So if the spellwork is seeming too much like work, then yes, take a small break, but never take your eye off the prize! ;-) If it is worth having, it is worth working for!
Love,light, and peace,
