One school of metaphysical thought says that rituals and spells will only work if you make an attempt to act out the results as much as possible. This is why sex magic is supposed to work so well. The act of having sex while manifesting what you want during a ritual has the same intensity as desire.
On a smaller scale, the individual casting the spell might have more success putting their emotion into the ritual. For instance, let’s say you are lighting a red candle and anointing it with olive oil to attract love. Your first job would be to visualize the person in full as you visualize the happy outcome of the results of the ritual. However aside from just that, it is also of value to experience the “feelings” of love as you would as if the person was kissing you or having a good time with you. In theory, the same holds true of vengeful spells. You are to feel the pain as you hurt the other person with your words. This is why so many black magic spells involve the use of needles and pins.
For instance, let’s say you are lighting that red candle for love and putting all of your heart and soul into it to try and make the other person do as you want. There is a good chance that this particular person will feel this emotion and energy as a “psychic shove.” Astrally, the person may even become annoyed by it.
Some manifestation experts say that you are much better off to make the request coldly and with as little emotion attached to it as possible. You are to make the request once and then not think of it again. It is the act of “letting it go” and letting the powers that
be take care of it that makes the miracle happen. If you push at it and visualize the desired result too much, the theory is that you will actually achieve the opposite as the cosmos does not like desires that seem to be out of proportion or balance.
The truth is that both methods, attaching emotion or not attaching emotion to a ritual, do seem to work. It is up to you to try it out and see which method works best for you.
