A reader emailed about magick to help him win at slots. My answer gets into how manifesting works, and I thought it might be useful for you, too.
First, this type of magick is called “manifesting,” which means “magick for predicting or influencing events.”
Some people think manifesting works by influencing random events. And slot machines seem random. So they would use manifesting to influence the slot machine to pay out.
Problem is, most events we call “random,” really aren’t. Slot machines, for example, look random, but every pull is determined by a secret number stored in a computer inside the machine. To change the next pull, you’d have to change that number, which means changing the electricity stored in transistors, which is… hard.
Even coin flips aren’t random. They’re governed by basic physics. It’s just that we can’t eyeball the velocity well enough to calculate the result. But there’s a big difference between unknown and genuinely random.
In my experience, manifesting works by influencing decisions. Mostly your own decisions, sometimes the decisions of other people. So, you should do manifesting before making important decisions.
What’s the most important decision in slots? Which machine you play. Do your manifesting when you first walk into the casino, so it can guide you to the right machine. And use manifesting to know when to go home, so you quit while you’re ahead.
But don’t walk up to a machine, then try to manifest it into paying out. Because then you’re up against a computer, and there’s not much manifesting can do.
