It is natural to get discouraged when things are not going as we would prefer. Difficulties can cause us to reexamine our goals and begin doubting whether it will ever happen. However, I will never forget one valuable piece of wisdom Mambo Sam shared-
"Be a spiritual pit-bull."
I have seen, in doing rituals for others and spells for my life, that persistence pays off. This is ESPECIALLY true in magick. In doing spellwork, we working with the lwa and putting our personal focus and willpower to affect change in the universe. It is perfectly logical that it might take time and perseverance for those desired outcomes to manifest.
Spellwork also brings new information to light- and sometimes this can make us realize we don't want what we once did. However, when we are in the waiting period, an attitude of doubt and negativity only keeps there longer.
When we put all our focus on what we don't want to happen, where we don't want to go- that is where we are headed. Instead (and I think this is very Capitaine Agwe) it's better for us to look towards where we want to go!
White candles, the Milk of Damballah Bath Kit, or any of the healing magickal items Mambo Sam has crafted are all excellent ways to rid ourselves of the gunk of negativity and refresh ourselves! The Ogoun Ritual pack and/or bath kit is a great way to empower ourselves and cut through negativity.
