Since the beginning of time people have leaned on their faith in spirituality and belief in mysticism to accomplish the extraordinary. Long before the practice of 'modern medicine' became the norm, typically health concerns were treated with a dose of spirituality, voodoo, witchcraft, astrology, or psychic power from any number of paranormal sources. You wouldn't think of trying to tackle your daily trials and tribulations without help from the 'unseen' world. However, that was in the dark ages... long before we were gifted with the miracle of modern science. But, let's get into it... is it wise for modern man to laugh in the face of what once was a well respected way of being and believing?
In today's world, with so much respect given to mainstream religion you would imagine the same respect would be given to beliefs of all types. But as we know even mainstream religion is mocked, so it's easy to laugh at those that believe in the powers of the paranormal, occult, magic, psychic or new age remedies. Often being labeled woo woo non-sense or trend seekers following the latest counter-culture fad.
Although, it's at the fundamental core of human beings to search for the truth. Let's be real, today we face our fair share of day-to-day problems that we're striving to find solutions to. Issues with love, money, and health, just to name a few. Life can be a struggle for some many around the world who seek solutions to their problems. And for so many, magic spells feel like the answer they've been looking for. Just go to Google and search love spells or magic spells. You'll get endless results for psychics and spell casters who claim to help make your problems disappear, or bring you astonishing results. Think that's crazy? Well, when asked, the majority of people who partake in these spells will tell you that they feel that they really work for them.
So, how can we know that a love spell performed by a psychic have actually attracted a soulmate for a lonely person seeking a partner? Or if that money spell really helped that struggling assistant get the promotion and raise that they desired? And what about that healing spell that helped to cure your neighbours back pain? Of course the 'non-believers' will highlight the possible coincidence or other form of logical explanation resulting in"mind over matter." (Side not is magic just manifestation - we'll discuss in a later post). But those who believe in spells, rituals, and psychic powers could think otherwise.. and do think otherwise. So, is there a spiritual or metaphysical helping hand involved?
Speaking to many self-professed psychic experts and ritual practitioners, who have studied spirituality, psychic phenomena, and the art of spell casting. They believe would stress that there is so much more to all of this than what first meets the eye. Let's think about it this way, most mainstream (and well respected/accepted) religions accept the power of prayer as a way to receive blessings and protection from spiritual sources. Additional for some time now even medical professionals are recognising that an individuals faith and beliefs can play a huge role in improving their quality of life & health. However, while many doctors will admit that there is some benefit to holistic and alternative medicines, you'll be pressed to find any who will publicly encourage seeking answers from a psychic or magic spell.
There has and seemingly (for some time anyway) will always be a stigma around visiting a psychic, spell caster, or fortune teller. Will onlookers going as far as calling the participant desperate for seeking alternate truths. However, truthfully one could argue that the psychic industry has brought much of the skepticism onto itself. With things like questionable late night television infomercials for psychic readings. For many the first thing that comes to mind when they think of a fortune teller is a con artists or carnival fortune tellers. Just look at how astrology and other psychic-related ads have that tiny disclaimer at the bottom that says "for entertainment purposes only." It's about as phoney as pro wrestling, right? Well, don't be too quick to agree.
There are more people than you think who use money or love spells on a regular basis, in an attempt to restore a bad relationship, or gain financial freedom. And they're not necessarily the people you may think. True believers come from all walks of life, professions, income levels, religious affiliations and nationalities. Ok yeah, some may rely too much on seeking guidance and help from the psychic world, but most of them are die-hard believers of the occult and would not have it any other way. They'll swear by the spells that have worked for them. Their lives being enriched in a thousand different ways, arguing that you are the one missing out on something amazing because of close mindedness.
I will give you that people are curious, going back to our earlier point. Humans are innately curious, adaptive, and always seeking answers to life's questions. Asking "Are these spells real?", "Can they actually make things happen that I can't on my own?". If spells can do what they claim they can do (improve love life, attract more money, generally make your life better) than the answer has to be "Yes."
A spell that does what it is supposed to do has got to be real. Right? Whether or not it's 'mind over matter' if the spell delivers the results your were seeking, then it has to be real. Of course, it helps if you have a positive outlook, and believe that the spell can truly help you. But Believers will tell you that those who refuse to open their minds to the possibilities of magic spells and spiritual solutions will never know what they're missing. Maybe it's the 'non-believers' who are experiencing 'mind over matter' only their minds are closed to the beautiful possibilities that 'magic' could bring into their lives.
Why limit your world to just the few things that you can see and touch? After all, what you see isn't always what you get.
