Everyone loves to talk about their spell successes, but what about failures? I’ve recently had both. I’ve continued to work with the NAP and explore the spirits within it. Really nifty little book.
My working with Nitika continues to bring results far beyond what I asked for. I don’t want to go into specifics, but I said previously that I asked for a 50% result and got 200%. This has only risen. Daily I continue to receive results even though I’ve far exceeded what I asked for. Even though I long ago got what I asked for I continue to get more, and more, and more. As a matter of fact yesterday I found out that my result was doubled bringing it to a 400% result! I have no idea when I’ll stop seeing returns on this one evocation but I’m thankful. I’ve given offerings to Nitika in gratitude and will certainly call on “it” again. I would recommended this spirit to ANYONE.
My working with Elubatel was less than successful. I need a new job in the worst way. I had a job interview and asked Elubatel to bring me success. I invoked him the night before the job interview. That night I had a dream that I got the job and at first everything was fine for awhile (i.e. honeymoon period). Then out of the blue the boss attacked me and started hitting me and beating me. He knocked me out and framed me. He planted me in a car full of open alcohol bottles and poured beer all over me. I woke up (in the dream) in the car to the police coming for me and handcuffing me.
Now obviously no one would do this in real life, but if you look at the symbolism it suggests an abusive boss who would blame those who work for him for his own mistakes. I’ve had those kind of bosses in the past. I considered it a warning from El. I still went to the interview. Oddly enough, though I had never met this person before he seemed very much like the guy in my dream from mannerisms alone. The creep factor was high. I did not get the job. I was actually somewhat thankful for this.
Even though the working was a failure (The result I asked for did not occur, there is no way around it) I still felt like Elubatel had my back and steered me away from a potential miserable situation. Also I experienced a horrible depression after working with him that lasted for about a full week. I’ve heard many others say this was their experience as well, but I honestly did not believe it would happen for me (I’m not depression prone. It’s just not in my nature. I’m the person who sings a merry tune while the ship is going down). I will return to working with him/her in the future though when I have my duck in a row. This time it didn’t work, but I feel there is still merit in working with this spirit.
I’m going to taking a scatter shot approach with my next job work and enchant by a thousand papercuts. I think I’ve been going about things all wrong. I’m launching a full campaign.
