How long does it take for my spell to work?

How long does it take for my spell to work? Right after I help someone build the candle spell to tackle their big problem, this is the very first question asked, like there is a pop-up turkey timer to tell them when the spell is fully cooked. There is no timer, no guarantee and no typical answer with results may vary. It all depends on you, your issue, how complicated it is, how many people it involves, and how embedded it is in your life. 

I address this question in more detail in my upcoming Big Book of Candle Magic, that is to be released July 1st, 2022. Here are excerpts from the chapter on Candle Magic in Action - 

If you are already moving in the direction of your spell, it will manifest faster… 

If your spell is very different from the life you are currently living, it will take longer to actualize…

The better question is, “How can I tell if my spell is working?“ Tracking your spell and the small changes that happen everyday in your candle magic journal will show you the slow steady progress and keep you in gratitude. Slipping into fear or doubt is a perfect way to sabotage your spell…

Your spell is working for you even if you don’t get what you want. Look for the message about what is in your way or what needs to change. 

Tracking and journaling about your spell as it is manifesting will show you when you need to give it a gentle boost to keep it heading in the right direction. Staying in touch with your divine allies and daily meditation will help you understand when you are in the middle of the spell manifesting and moving things out of the way to make room for the better things to come. 

What you don’t want to do is re-cast the spell or cast a new spell that will potentially cross up the work you did. Before you cast your spell again or interfere with the energy you set in motion, do a reading on the energy. Use a yes or no oracle (I have a large chapter on this in The Big Book of Candle Magic) and find your patience. It took your whole life to get you into this mess, it may take more than 24 hours for you to get out of it. 

So, how long does it take for your spell to work? It takes what it takes and you can either support it along the way or get in its way. Take a deep breath and remember you are in for the long game.
