Our thoughts contain the power to alter the flow and intention of our energy. They also have the power to influence our environment, not just in our lives but in the lives of those around us. Consider how your work environment is influenced by what mood the boss is in. When you were growing up, the energetic environment of your home was influenced by the mood of your parents or caregiver. Have you noticed that when you are in a good mood things flow much more smoothly? That’s because when we are happy we set up a flow of energy that keeps the good things coming. You might even notice that your smiling demeanor causes other people to feel better and to smile too. A happy mentality brings us better health, can increase our prosperity and generally make the world seem like a better place.
On the flip side of that coin, have you noticed that when you are in a bad mood, the bad just keeps on coming? What would normally be a minor annoyances become amplified as your mood worsens and people begin to steer clear of you, not because you are upset but because of the malefic energy that is emanating from you. Nobody wants that energy toxifying their space so they stay away and tell everyone else at work, “Don’t go near so and so today. They’re in a really bad mood!” Now everyone is ostracizing you thanks to your bad mood and the bad energy that comes with it.
If your mentality can affect so many people, imagine what type of influence it can have on your magical works. One of the reasons that it is so powerful is because your thoughts don’t just stand on their power alone. There is an emotional and physical response to them that adds to the energy and triples the effect. For example, imagine that your car breaks down and you get an estimate that is far beyond your means of paying at the moment.
Thought – Oh no! How am I going to pay for this and how am I going to get back and forth to work while it’s broken?
Emotion – Fear and/or anxiety because you need your car to get around and have no other means of conveyance. Sadness because you don’t have the money to pay for it which can also bring on feelings of shame and failure
Physical response – elevated heart rate/blood pressure, muscle tension, adrenaline coursing through the body as your body goes into survival mode, etc.
All of these ingredients go into the making of your energetic output as the trifecta of thought, emotion and physical response combine to create the energy that surrounds you. This means that all day, you are making magic but perhaps not the kind that you intended. You may be thinking, “Well if I’m just feeling something it doesn’t mean I am casting an intention.” Unfortunately you are. When you are asking yourself questions like “How am I going to pay for my car repairs?”, the energetic translation is, “I don’t have the money to pay for my car repairs.” Taken alone, that statement carries very strong energies especially because it is the fact of the matter and therefore is a part of your true belief system. Add the adverse emotions and physical responses and now the energy that you are inadvertently casting is filled with the belief, “I don’t have the money to pay for my car repairs”. Your beliefs play a huge role in your life and wield a very strong influence in the outcome of your magical works because we have to truly believe that the positive changes we are going for will truly take place. Engaging in negative beliefs is a powerful form of magic and can wreak havoc in our lives.
Of course every metaphysician knows that when casting a spell, we must have the proper thoughts and intentions. We clear our minds, our spaces, cleanse our tools, power up and cast our emotion and intention filled requests to the Universe for fulfillment. We even manage to believe soon all will well and order restored to our lives. However, that 30 minute spell you just put all that work into may also be severely affected if afterwards you return to an adverse mental state. Let’s say you cast a spell to get the money to pay for your car repairs. While doing the spell you were able to get into the proper mind set, power yourself up and cast one of the best prosperity spells ever. You may have even patted yourself on the back afterwards and sat smiling while still enjoying feeling the awesome power of your works. But then the negative thoughts start to seep back in such as, “How am I going to get to get my child to daycare and me to work next week?” or “I was supposed to pick up my dry cleaning and get groceries. There’s hardly anything here for the kids to eat.” Now panic starts to set in as you mentally go over your options. With the thought and the panic comes the resulting physical response and now new and powerful energy filled with doubt and desperation are being cast. Also, you could have created the best prosperity candle in the universe but unless you put some protection around it, it is now sitting in the hard energy you are filling the environment with which may be whittling away at all the good energy you imbued in your candle.
This is why it is extremely important to keep constant tabs on your mental state and make the appropriate adjustments to help keep your thoughts properly directed and the energy you send out filled with your true intentions and not those dictated by a negative mentality. Studying and practicing techniques to help you to clear away adverse emotions can also help you to maintain a peaceful mentality. As metaphysicians we don’t just cast while doing intentional spell work. We cast constantly and the intentions we cast the most are the ones that will take root and flourish be it for the good or for the bad. It is up to us.
