Magick spells and rituals have a chance to always fail, but it really depends on many different factors whether it manifests, and take shape in the world, or the energy gets lost in transition. In this post I’m going to be going over reasons why spells, and rituals might not manifest, so that you can avoid them, and better understand how magick works in order to better your practice, and to empower your working. This most likely won’t be all of the reasons why spells fail but will be a good overview.
Not enough energy:
When trying to manifest something into existence we call upon specific energies that would help us in our intention. When we do not call upon enough energy in order for a manifestation to take shape it will end up not working, because there was not enough energy to do the job. The small amount of energy that you do send out will try to accomplish the job, but will be unable to with what it is currently working with allowing it to fail, because it will not have enough energy in order to meet its manifestation.
Energy that does not reflect our intent:
In magick when we call upon different energies we will use specific energies that correlate to our intention allowing them to go forth, and work for us. If we call upon too much energy that has nothing to do with our intention that energy instead will be what we manifest, or will get in the way of our manifestation. This would be like trying to do a luck spell with only items that are bad luck. Pretty much allowing the bad luck energy to override whatever we were doing. This can be stopped by understanding metaphysical associations, imposed associations, and by calling upon enough of the specific energy that you want.
Intention in your magick is something that allows you to put direction and understanding into the energy so that it can go forth and manifest what you want. Sometimes as this intention can be intended for one thing, when you actually want something completely different. In an extreme case this would be like casting a spell for money, when you actually want happiness, or something that money can provide you. This could end up man if I seen the money but would not get you what you want, and actually set out for. You could also end up dwelling way too much on the negative side of what you are trying to prevent allowing that to become your intention, and manifestation. This would be like intending not to get in a car crash instead of intending to have a safe drive to work. The focus on the negativity can invoke intentions of that negativity, which could accidentally manifest that outcome.
To specific intention:
Sometimes having to specific of intents will not allow the energy to work because it will not be able to manifest such a desire with how much energy that is provided. this would be like doing a spell for a million dollars to be delivered tomorrow,and air lift in on a helicopter. The likelihood that that happens in most people situations is very unlikely to probability, so a lot of energy would be needed, probably more than any person could muster making it most likely improbable, and to allow the spell, or ritual to fail.
Not specific enough intention:
This is pretty much the exact opposite of the last one. when your intention is not specific enough the energy will pretty much go forward, and will do what it wants to until it’s imposed task is technically complete. This would be like doing a spell for money, and getting a penny back. yes, it is the money that you asked for, but you are probably expecting something a like more influential.
If your intention is not focused on what desire you want to accomplish, then it will be hard for the energy to know what it needs to do. This lack of steady intention will confuse the energy, and will not allow it to manifest your desire. Your intention can also be unfocused if you have doubts, or fears about casting. These thoughts would create blockages that would not allow you to manifest what you desire.
Dwelling on the spell, or rituals outcome:
By dwelling upon what you want after you have already cast out the spell, or ritual can allow it not to manifest. This is because if you are obsessively thinking about what you are manifesting you will send out energy, and intention to it. This energy, and intention may not allow it to go forth, and complete its work, or may even change the intention based off your intrusive thoughts. In order to stop this some practitioners will try to forget what they have done after they have cast out there magick, or will simply try not to think about it.
Many different entities could end up interacting with your energy, and could even stop it with their own intention, and energy. This would be like casting a curse upon a person, and having their deity, or deities, or their protection strike it down. A person could also send out a spell of their own to counteract, or stop yours. A person could also stop your magick, by intending the exact opposite, or by subconsciously intending for it to fail, if they know about it. If they are just intending, and you are casting spells your intention, and energy are most likely a lot more organized, and stronger than theirs, but even this small amount of energy could waste just enough energy of your spell in order for it not to have enough energy to manifest, or could hinder the manifestation.
The spell or ritual could still be manifesting:
Just because a spell has not manifested yet does not mean it will not. the energy will wait for the perfect opportunity for it to make its move which may make the spell manifest later in time. Spells will also manifest much quicker, if they are a lot less specific, but because of that less specificness it may not manifest what you wanted to, so it’s good to find a balance.
Not moving into your magick:
Manifestation can happen if you are sitting on your ass, though you are less likely to be in a place where the amount of energy that you have sent out can actually manifest your desire. It is important to continue to move, so that you can be in a spot in which the manifestation will actually be able to take shape easier. This would be like casting a spell for love, but never being in social situations, though you always have a chance for a mate to literally drop from the sky, it would be a lot easier for the energy that you sent out to manifest something that is already in front of you, and is much more probable. Allow yourself to move into your magick that you have cast, and it will allow your manifestation to be easier.
