I manifested two houses from one spell (part 3 of 4)

If you haven’t yet read the first two parts of this story, you should probably start here.

I want to back up a little to talk about the difference between wishing and manifesting, or at least the way I define it.

Wishes are for children

  • You make a wish when you blow out your birthday candles.
  • You throw a penny in a well and make a wish.
  • You wish upon a star.

Children’s wishes usually fall into the fantasy category, such as being able to fly or turning into a fairy princess, or something tangible but relatively simple, such as a new toy, candy, or getting good grades.

Of course, children can sometimes surprise you, wishing for world peace, end to hunger or poverty, or other wishes that show amazing altruism.

Wishes for new toys or candy are easily fulfilled. Wishing for good grades is easy for a child who does well in school, too.

Doing the work…

For a child who struggles in school, it will take some work on their part to help make their wish come true.

They might need to get glasses, try harder, put more effort into their homework, or get a tutor.

This is where you are bridging the gap between wishing and manifesting.

Wishing, or wishful thinking, is just dreaming without taking action.

Manifesting is better than wishing. It is the process of turning your dreams into reality.

“Magick is stacking the deck of fate in your favor.”

One of the best explanations I have ever heard was by Foolish Fish. If you have 20 minutes, I highly recommend watching this video.

…to give me the best shot at a favorable outcome.

I did end up manifesting two houses from one wish, which I will tell you about in the final part of this article; however, I think it is important to talk about the actions I took to cross the bridge from wishing for a house to manifesting a house.

Here are some of the important steps I did before I cast my spell:

  • I spent more than two years building my credit score.
  • I saved up money for a down payment and closing costs.
  • I had a steady income.

So, you are probably asking why I needed to do any spells at all … I mean, sounds like I could just go pick a house and buy it, right?

Not so simple. First of all, there are a lot of other people in the world who also have positioned themself to buy a house. Clearly, two of them were in a better position than I was.

Secondly, this was during the pandemic, at the height of the seller’s market. Because interest rates were low, there was a lot of competition, so house prices skyrocketed.

Houses were going under contract even before they were listed on the MLS.

Plus, I had the added constrictions of wanting to find a home in a small town that was incredibly desirable.

And, I had a limited budget to work with.

Finally, I was self-employed AND owed back taxes, two things that mortgage companies really hate as I found out a few years before when my mortgage was denied at the final hour, just days before closing.

That’s actually leaving quite a lot up to chance … so that’s why I decided to use magick.

But it didn’t work.

Or… did it?

In hindsight, there is one simple truth that I do not like to admit.

I could not comfortably afford those houses.

It was going to be a struggle. A burden.

Maybe I subconsciously chose jars that were too small. Twice.

Coincidence? I don’t know.

I like to think the Universe was actually looking out for me. Helping to prevent me from making a big mistake … and, presenting me with the opportunity to help two of my children instead of just one.
