Overcoming Inner Blockages to Magickal Success (Bella Online)
Edited on Fri May-20-11 10:53 PM by icymist
Poor timing, lack of emotional content, and aiming for the wrong outcome can all have a negative impact on your magick, but there are ways to overcome them as we saw in the previous article. This time we will look at two other potential problems and approaches to overcome them.

Overcoming mental blocks
Mental blocks, conscious or unconscious, are major obstacles to successful magick. At first they can be easily recognised; doubts about the reality of magick, fear of going against an inculcated religious upbringing, and worrying about getting everything exactly right are common when a neophyte starts out on the Pagan path. As the neophyte becomes trained and gains experience these early misgivings appear to be overcome by successes in magick and contacting aspects of the Divine. What usually happens is that there is a steady increase of skills and confidence then a plateau or even a reduction of skills and ability. This leads to doubt, which makes the situation worse and it is at this point that many people decide that Paganism is not for them and leave to seek another path rather than looking into why this happened.
