We hope that our children might grow up to be president, or a rich doctor or a powerful lawyer, as if that were any sort of success. Rather, we should hope that they grow up to be grown-up human beings, and redefine our notions of success accordingly.

Successful people are dreamers who have found a dream too exciting, too important, to remain in the realm of fantasy. Day by day, hour by hour, they toil in the service of their dream until they can see it with their eyes and touch it with their hands.

Life is something we need to stop correcting... Every one of us is an experiment, and we don’t even know what the experiment is testing...Nobody’s perfect... But, man, we all fall short so beautifully.

Production and Success Spell
(does not need to be in a jar. I only kept it in here for longevity but can be 1 time spell)
Chili flakes or powder
What to do
Combine chili, black pepper, catnip, thyme, and basil in a mortar and pestle.
Sprinkle mixture onto some aluminum foil (or other fireproof surface).
Dip half of the piece of twine into your peppermint extract. Place twine into mixture.
Light the unoiled end of the twine. As the twine burns, enjoy the peppermint smell and meditate on what you need productivity and success in most.
When the fire goes out, fold the aluminum foil.
(optional) heat the spell inside of the foil in your candle flame.
*Disclaimer. This spell was created by me based on the research I myself have done.
I placed clear quartz, red crackle quartz, and selenite on top of my jar for extra energy. I am hoping this works to get me out of my slump.
Wish Me Luck!!!

Sometimes you’re not struggling because of your own shortcomings, but because your environment isn’t a fit for you. An artic penguin might not thrive in the desert, but it can thrive in icy waters.
