Why Didn't My Spell Work? Episode 124 of Busy, Gritty, Inked, and Witchy Podcast

Why Didn't My Spell Work?

In the ever-enchanting world of witchcraft, spellcasting is a practice that both excites and perplexes. Whether you are a seasoned practitioner or just beginning your magickal journey, the question of why a spell didn't work is one that inevitably arises. In a recent episode of Busy, Gritty, Inked, and Witchy, Morgan, an eclectic witch of almost 25 years, delves into this very topic, sharing her personal experiences and offering valuable insights. 

Why Didn't My Spell Work?

Morgan begins by recounting a spell she worked meticulously for weeks, aiming to align her daughter's military orders to bring her back to Arizona. Despite her dedicated efforts, the spell did not manifest as intended, and her daughter received orders for Germany instead. This unexpected outcome prompted Morgan to explore the reasons behind the spell's "failure" and to share her findings with her listeners.

One of the first points Morgan emphasizes is the importance of alignment in spellcasting. For a spell to work, the mind, body, and soul must be in harmony. If any of these elements are not fully committed, the energy becomes muddied, leading to unsuccessful results. Morgan also highlights the significance of shadow working, a process of confronting and understanding one's hidden fears and desires. By addressing these shadows, witches can ensure that their conscious intentions are not sabotaged by underlying doubts.

Timing is another crucial factor. Sometimes, spells require more time to manifest, or there may be other steps that need to be completed first. Morgan advises practitioners to be patient and to consider whether they have made space for the new energy they wish to invite into their lives. This can involve clearing out physical clutter or releasing old emotional baggage.

One of the most challenging aspects of spellcasting is accepting that sometimes, we get what we need, not what we want. Morgan reflects on her own experience, realizing that her daughter's orders to Germany, while initially disappointing, ultimately offered exciting opportunities for both her daughter and herself. This shift in perspective can transform a perceived failure into a serendipitous blessing.

Morgan also discusses the possibility that a spell's failure might be a sign to change course. The universe may place roadblocks in our path to steer us away from potential pitfalls or to encourage us to rethink our intentions. By reassessing and refining our goals, we can align more closely with our true desires.

Finally, Morgan acknowledges that some things are simply not meant to be. As much as we may want to manifest certain outcomes, the universe, our guides, or our higher selves may have different plans. Accepting this reality is a vital part of the magickal journey.

Morgan's episode is a heartfelt and enlightening exploration of the complexities of spellcasting. It serves as a reminder that magick, like life, is an ever-evolving process of learning, adapting, and growing. Whether your spells manifest as intended or take an unexpected turn, there is always wisdom to be gained and new paths to explore.

To dive deeper into Morgan's insights and to learn more about why spells might not work, listen to the full episode of Busy, Gritty, Inked, and Witchy. Embrace the magickal journey, and remember that every twist and turn is an opportunity for growth and discovery.
