One of the things I've always been perplexed about is how some people seem to just focus on the actions, even to the point of doing works while watching t.v. or with the radio blaring in the background, vs. actually empowering the work.
I can only say how I do things. When I do work I take it seriously. I want to be by myself, in my special place, and I want to be in the right mind frame. While doing the work I will invoke the power. Now, I'm not sure if people know what the power is. It's like feeling electricity flow all down your body. So while holding something and praying over it you can literally feel it flow down your body and into the work.
Now, when you are working with the power it has an almost life of it's own. Sometimes when your emotions are high or when you feel really strong about something that power hits so strong that you may find yourself almost vibrating. I've found this YouTube video that closely matches what I'm taling about. This is a clip from the show, True Blood, where an evil character named Maryann has powers. She "vibrates" when she uses her power.
So of course Maryann is evil but the power itself is neutral. I first felt the power in Church and then I later learned I could invoke it and direct it.
Now, I know from talking with people that there are people out there who don't do that or feel like they can't do that. They ask me how they can invoke the power. I really don't have an answer but say to be in touch with your feelings, feel your connection to everything, and perhaps to try breathing exercises while meditating. All I know is that when I invoke the power my works are successful and manifest far faster than when I don't do it.
If by chance you don't know how or can't seem to invoke the power, then at least make sure to do your work alone and in quiet where you can concentrate on your desire.
Also, and I've posted this last year during the heat wave, if by chance you feel your power is drained or you get to the point where you can no longer invoke it. Don't be discouraged. It could be that your electrolytes are low and taking a vitamin might help. Last summer it was over 100 degrees starting in the beginning of May and there was no relief until September. Don't you know my AC decided to go out and I spent the entire summer without air conditioning. Well, I noticed that I could no longer invoke the power and I correctly deduced that it was because I was sweating away all the electrolytes and other things my body needed. So taking vitamins will help.
