That being said, I suppose it should feel a little daunting. This man told Abel he wanted, and felt obligated, to pay me for whatever services I would render. I, of course, immediately turned him down. Firstly, I would like to say I'm not against those that take money for their mystical services. Secondly, however, I do feel that, on a very personal level, accepting money would put an unnecessary pressure on needing to see results quickly - which any good witch worth their purifying salt should know that immediate results should never, and can never, be promised or expected.
Strangely, though, there's a calm about the tasks I'll be undertaking to help this family. The remedies and spells I've prescribed, I know they'll work. There's a simple faith and trust in the power of them. I think that's important. Much more important than deep meditations and Hollywoodesque experiences. I think it's important for the craft to feel like a comfortable pair of pajamas. This is my advice to you. Get so comfortable with what you know, in all aspects of your life and/or craft. Learn your job or religion or hobby or family or whatever so well and love it so thoroughly that if you're ever called upon to use that knowledge, you have no qualms about your ability to follow through. Love like that keeps the boat in the air when it shouldn't work, when it should fall apart instead. (yeah Serenity)
Love and Lyte,
