Many years ago, one of my dear friends wanted to get married. As she was Wiccan, she did a spell to attract her great love, complete with spider webs and candles. I never asked her if she danced naked in the moonlight….
She made a list of all her requirements, the most important being, “a spiritual man”. Well, he turned up soon after. The universe in it’s perfect sense of humor sent her a “spiritual man”, a die-hard Hare Krishna, complete with Dhoti and tilak. It was the one thing she hadn’t considered and that’s what she got. The happy ending to the story is that they are still married and quite happy, 20 something years later, despite their spiritual diversity. They are happily married because of their tolerance for their spiritual diversity…..
At that time, I decided to try the same thing as I was looking for a forever love. So I did the rituals, wrote down my requirements and waited. He appeared not too soon afterwards, everything I asked for except for one thing: he was many years younger than I was. I’d never thought of that! I could never quite get my head around that, so he went, and I was broken- hearted, and there were many lessons afterwards that made me reconsider my thoughts on the matter. But that’s another story.
I read for a client once who wanted a man in her life. She had a list too. Since she was a recovered alcoholic, she wanted a man who absolutely did not drink and because her grandchildren meant so much to her, he must also have and love children. My thoughts about the matter were that in her manifestations she’d eliminated the man who might not care enough about drinking to stop having that beer with the guys and the man who may not have had an opportunity to have children, but could fall completely in love with her grandchildren. How limiting!
That’s how the universe works. There’s a lesson in everything for us. So my advice to you is, be careful what you wish for. I’ve learned to keep it really broad, like, “for my highest good” and for the “perfect situation”. Then “They” can’t play any more tricks on me!
