That's why when you're practicing, you are far better off sticking to things that are achievable within the realm of probability -- e.g. if you want abundance, better to stick to a "get the job I want" spell & put in the effort to apply to those jobs, than to hope to win the Powerball.
I love this, before I went to the hospital I used to keep a blog concerning pagan related things. This is a point, almost verbatim, that I would stress.
Honestly, if a spell doesn't work for me, its because I am either asking of way too much or because I haven't given it my all before hand. Sticking with the "abundance" example, if I need a better job to make ends meat, have I even started looking? Have I been applying for jobs with my best face forward? If I have been doing everything I could possibly do to get a new job and things aren't panning out, at that point I may try a "find a job spell." The way I see it, magic won't work unless I do.
That is just the way I see things
You will always have many different opinions on stuff like this, but I love this forum for its ability to offer different solutions in a respectful way.
