I've been doing money drawing work for months (mostly from the 'free money spells' archive and a couple from a book LM sells, the 'Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells'), with zero effect. Literally.
In the same period of time (about 6 months), a lot of work I planned to do became unnecessary because, in the time I was learning exactly what to do and getting supplies, the desired result had already happened.
First, I was feeling very stuck and was planning to do a Road Opener spell. I was preparing to do the work, had run the spell through in my head a couple of times, had some small offerings sitting around to be used... and out of the blue, got a chance to go on a really amazing overseas trip on short notice, which got me completely 'un-stuck'.
Second, I'd been thinking of doing some Love Drawing work, but after reading a hundred odd spells I decided I needed to concentrate on other things (mostly money-drawing work
) and put my time and energy into that instead. Except one night, I was exceptionally lonely and, er, frustrated, and tried a little experimental kitchen-witchery... which I then promptly almost-forgot, because, well, embarrassing. A few days later, I met someone who is such a perfect match for me, it's completely uncanny. (We're still together and very happy.
Third, I had the whole Fiery Wall of Protection spell kit in my shopping cart on the Lucky Mojo site, because I'd been feeling a little 'messed with' for a while -- not under attack, but like outside interference was causing outcomes in a whole range of situations that weren't always great for me. Before I could place the order, I figured out the issue (something a friend and fellow worker had done, trying to help me, but it hadn't gone quite as planned) and the problem seems to be mostly resolved now.
Fourth, I've also noticed that in my regular protective work, if I just casually dress some tea lights with protective herbs (basil, rosemary & rue is my favorite recipe now -- thanks!) and let them burn, I have no problems... whereas if I go to a lot of trouble and really try to 'work' things, they don't work nearly as well.
So... can any more experienced workers tell me, does this sound like a problem with trying too hard? Or is it more likely that something else is causing all my money-drawing work to fail? (I have some ideas about what it might be, although I guess it would be more appropriate to post in the area about money-drawing work?)
Or am I simply asking too much, asking for money in this economy?
I'd really appreciate any insights into what the issue might be!
