Magic is something that is complex and hard to understand. I’ve taken many years to understand it as I do today. When I first started, I was wary of things like curses, healing spells, and love spells. I felt, at the time, that I would be messing with someone’s free will by doing those things.
Today, I don’t really have the same thoughts. Magic, as I found, is a force that can only really do what it does if there is a way to actually achieve it. Basically if there is no kindle for the flames, a fire will never start. If there is not a place to start or go from, the magical intent has a difficult time taking hold. It follows the flow and goes with the easiest way to do the job. It needs something to latch onto.
It is possible to go against the flow and force a fire with no kindle or way to easily start it, but its difficult and not many can achieve it. It takes a lot of focus, dedication, patience, and skill.
Here are some examples of what I mean: Person A wants a specific job, so they perform a spell to get it. They have to turn in an application, otherwise how can they get the job if they don’t even let the employers know they’re interested? How can the magic take hold if it doesn’t have a starting point to go off from?
Person B loves Person A, so they perform a love spell. If Person A doesn’t even know Person B exists, how can the magical intent reach them? If Person A doesn’t feel anything for Person B, the magic has no kindle to ignite the flames of love.
From my experiences, I’ve come to realize that magic doesn’t always work the way we expect it to do. When we focus on the intent and what we want as an outcome, the magic will, most of the time, look for the easiest and best way to achieve this. For example: The Person A had done the job spell and got the job. But what happened from it? The easiest way was to make all the other candidates look terrible was potential hires, while making Person A look amazing for the job. It tipped things in Person A’s favor.
Person B had gotten a date with Person A. How did this happen? The magic found that the easiest way was to take hold of the feelings that already existed in Person A and cause them to focus on those feelings. Person A liked Person B, but never thought about romantic feelings. The spell caused them to realize the romantic potential for Person B.
Practical magic that seeks to benefit us tends to go with the easiest flow of things. It will swim with the currents to reach the other side, while magic like curses tend to go against the flow and force things as we desire. I believe curses that go with the flow to cause negative things to happen are usually jinxes.On the other hand, curses force bad things on the target, sometimes they are already present and sometimes they are not. For me, the curse goes against the opposing force until it snaps and smacks the target.
