Fucking hell. Not sure yet if that was a regular dream, a warning, or some type of vision but it’s all kinds of do not want.
Poll: The Governor of Colorado is warning other Governors that the legalization of marijuana is a far more complicated issue than expected — while RI Governor Lincoln Chafee is pitching the concept of passing legalization legislation to generate revenue for the state.
I would love it you all voted for legalizing marijuana in Rhode Island. Our state is super broke (no really it is and my city is so broke and poorly managed the state had to step in last year and take control of our finances) and it would be a huge boost in the economy if it was. Other issues like more jobs generated and less convictions also hold true.
Personally, it doesn’t affect me - I’m allergic to marijuana and just smelling it makes my stomach roil and in close proximity my throat swells. However I know a great many people where this would be cool as shit and can help them out - and, if marijuana is sold in a standardized fashion, people are less likely to get bad batches (I know someone who’s allergic to only some mixes of marijuana and a standardization would allow him to pick the right marijuana and not end up hospitalized from an allergic reaction.)
It’s my personal hope that legalization will also increase education on marijuana and research - people are far more likely to admit they indulge and therefore research results and public polls will be more accurate.
You can do energy work to affect other things - for my students I let them feel the difference between three quartz crystals - one with a lot of energy, one with energy taken away, and one that hasn’t been tampered with. That seems to “prove” energy manipulation to them.
I’m not sure what kind of meditation you’re doing but meditation is a self thing - it doesn’t really have an external point so some people (like myself) skip it. I don’t meditate (read: think deeply) on things when necessary and I meditate (read: take a moment to let things go and mentally be in a peaceful place) when I’m stressed to give myself a mental break. A lot of people meditate to focus themselves or get in touch with themselves. I don’t really need to do that so I don’t bother. YMMV.
As for a way to prove magic works try a money spell. It’s literally the first kind of spell I do with my students (even though we don’t cover money spells as a topic until a few lessons later). Most people are going to notice right away if they find money somewhere. Maybe they find five dollars while putting away winter clothes or a quarter on the ground or a badass coupon. It’s still money. Money spells come in all shapes and sizes so that’s a bonus. Numerous folks light a candle, others say a spell, some carry charms, and many will fall back to knot spells.
[The following’s my opinion and personal belief so keep that in mind when you read this.] With spells, specifics matter. If you’re looking for extra cash to cover an increased heating bill, be certain to mention the date you need it by. If you’re looking for an amount of money needed, put that in there too. The more restrictions you put on a spell, the less chances it’ll have to work (because so much has to go right for it to match the spell’s requirements). This explains why requests for money tends to crop up in small amounts - you’re more likely to find ten dollars on the ground then you are a thousand dollars. Magic can do amazing things but, like all things, when there’s less to fight against, spells have a higher chance to succeed. Similarly, opportunities have to be present in order for the spell to work. Doing a spell to find a job may very well work if you play video games all day but it’s more likely to work if you actually apply for jobs. A spell to win the lottery isn’t likely to work (think of all the prayers and desires each person puts on a single lottery ticket) but a spell to increase luck at gambling will work very well in Las Vegas. Both of these are examples of spells I’ve done in real life. When my mother carried the luck charm I made, she won in Vegas - and came home with an extra $400 which doesn’t sound like lot but my family believes that any time we leave a casino with the money we walked in with is a good day and that was just a charm, not a spell. I did a spell for my brother to find a job and lo and behold,
tomorrow he has an interview. I can give you all the examples I want, but it doesn’t mean much until you try it yourself.
Hope that helps you out some.
EDIT: Between writing this post at 8 this morning and now (3pm) I have an update on one of the examples above: My brother’s interview was actually today and he was hired on the spot - above minimum wage, less than ten minutes from home, no dress code, and probably full time hours in three months. I declare that spell a success.
