I recall a line attributed to Ghandi imploring us to "be the change" we want to see in the world. Ghandi may have made this line famous, but the concept inherent in the line is a core concept in any magical system that actually produces results on a consistent basis.
We must not only "visualize" the change we want to see, but we must also EMBODY the change we want to see in the world. Our lives become better because WE are better. We can't make ourselves better all on our own. This is because it's not possible for a thought system to create a problem and then be able to heal the problem it created. By example, if we use the symbolism of the mind as being a smartphone, the apps on the phone would be the thought systems (aka thought-forms) within the mind. If one of those apps gets damaged, it can't fix itself. One would simply need to uninstall the app and download a new, undamaged copy.
Similarly, when we have problems in our lives, they were created by our own version of "damaged apps". These are negative thoughtforms within our deep minds. The only way out of these problems is to uninstall the damaged thought systems and download new ones.
This very clumsy metaphor SORT OF explains how magical change takes place. Magic is a method by which we change circumstances in our lives by changing the CAUSES of these circumstances (the thoughtforms or "apps"). But we must look OUTSIDE of these damaged thought systems for the change we desire. The concept of a higher power is necessary in order for this to occur. Yet, this needn't necessitate religion. Magic does not need any religion even thought it can, and does blend with religion quite frequently.
Looking to a higher intelligence than that which we are currently accessing is what is necessary for truly lasting change to take place.
When we work Psalm magic, I encourage practitioners to strive to approach the Psalms magically and not religiously. Have specific objectives that you are working toward. If you are seeking positive change in the world, WHAT change are you seeking? Be specific. Then ask yourself if your stated objective is within your magical sphere of influence. If so, then proceed. If not, then break your goal down into a more achievable objective.
Once you have the target of your spell, hit it hard. Know that it's yours. Nothing will stand in your way. Why? because you are BECOMING the very change you desire.
Move into the spell with an utter assurance that it will plant the EXACT thought seeds and remove the precise thoughtforms that will bring about your desire. KNOW that these ancient spells are living things. They aren't static writings in books.
These new thoughtforms will change you to the core, and that's why the change in your world is as certain as the fact that you just read this post. Use the spell below to help you to create the change you desire and deserve. Blessed be
