Intent, Desire, and Magic
The purpose of a spell is to manifest something that you need or desire. That need or desire (or both) comprises your intent. When you cast a spell, your intent is as vital to your success as your beliefs. What are you trying to accomplish? What's your goal? What outcome are you seeking? How badly do you want what you're trying to achieve or accomplish?
“Every intentional act is a magical act.” — Aleister Crowley
Many of us have had the experience of getting something we desired, even without the ritual of casting a spell. The magic ingredient that makes your wish come true is
Here's an example. Vicki had to stop at her local supermarket to drop off a roll of film. The film section was at the front of the store. Although she was hungry, she was in a hurry and didn't have time to run all the way to the back of the store to the produce section. As she approached the supermarket door, she thought about how much she would love to eat a sweet, juicy peach. The closer she got to the door, the more vividly she imagined that peach. She could see its rich color, could smell it, could almost feel it in her hands. When Vicki reached the front door, she spotted a display of fresh peaches. In the many years she'd been shopping at this store, she had never seen a display of fruit at the front. She bought peaches, of course, and they tasted every bit as good as she'd imagined.
What's fascinating about this story is that it aptly illustrates how intent constantly creates magic in life. Yet despite our astonishment and delight when magic like this happens, people usually write it off as a coincidence and eventually forget about it altogether. If you pay attention, however, you'll soon begin to notice that “coincidences” occur all the time. The more you believe in the power of intent, the more often you'll see your desires manifest.
