Why spells backfire

Bea has cast a spell which seems to have backfired on her. She lost a tenant and created a protection jar for the house and future tenant which was meant to absorb negativity and protect the house.  But after the casting, things went downhill, and Bea lost her other tenant and ended up in financial and legal troubles. 

Bea says: “While I chanted the spell I thought about all the negative energy, guilt, etc… and asked for this jar to suck up the bad and lower energies from the past and protect from any future and keep away people with bad energies. MY QUESTION: Did I do something wrong?”

Hi Bea,

When you cast, in order to attract the best results, you should think only about what you want, not what you don’t want.  I understand the theory behind asking the jar to suck up the negative energies, but it sounds like you focused too much on the bad stuff, with fear and worry about the future.  For that kind of spell I would instead suggest that you create a ‘positive energy jar’ or ‘light jar’, which you charge with positivity, joy, good fortune and such.  You could put in it any items that to you represent good fortune, and also gemstones and/or orgonite that promote a happy home, a stable income, etc.  Also colours – the colour blue is good for a peaceful home; green is for a good income, for example.casting spells

While charging it, you focus solely on what kind of tenant you want (i.e. no thoughts towards what you don’t want, or anything bad that has already happened), how you want to feel when you have that tenant living in the house, how good it feels to have enough money, and so on. This visualisation will also help further if it carries on in your mind also after you’ve cast the spell – i.e. whenever you think about the house, remind yourself of that happy image and the feelings you had during the visualisation.

You might want to try it again, if you are able to dig up the jar and start over.  Don’t worry about the spell you cast before or any negativity that would come of it, because your mind is incredibly powerful and can fundamentally affect your life, so just start shifting your focus straightaway towards positive things, any little thing that has actually worked out; anything you can feel thankful for.  And create a good fortune jar if you want to speed things along.

Blessed Be,
