The Most Powerful Spell

As someone who does ritual work for hire on behalf of others the request for "The Most Powerful Spell" or "Most Powerful Spirit" is a request I see so often that anymore it makes me cringe a bit when I see it brought up. I know it's natural for those new and unfamiliar with magic to want what is going to work the fastest and most effective to their situation. People often come to magic as a last resort when all other avenues have been exhausted and when all likelihood that a case is salvageable has died. These people may have heard from multiple people that this case can not be saved and it's best to move on or face the fact that they have to deal with an ugly and painful situation. These people are often at a spiritual rock bottom and desperate. That desperation is like blood in the water for the scammers and charlatans that are so prevalent these days.

Well, You didn't think the Most Powerful Spell was gonna be cheap did ya?!
With just a few simple clicks of the keyboard your can find thousands of people offering the most powerful spells, charms and talismans, baths, powders, oils and other such curios loaded with the most powerful of spirits and practically guarantee life changing results just by owning it. The only downside is these aren't cheap because of course they are so powerful and the rituals used to empower them were the darkest most secret rituals of them all, so mysterious the sellers often will not tell you what they did or how they did it. More often than not these sellers are literally unknown in the occult communities and try their hardest to stay on the fringes and hide in the shadows. You'll hear lines like "Real <insert title> don't advertise or discuss their methods with outsiders", this is very convenient for them as they have not had to show they know what they are talking about or that they are even versed in the uses of the wares they are trying to peddle.

The reality is there is no magic fix-all and there is no such thing as the most powerful one size fits all remedy that someone can just have dropped off at your door. The most powerful solution is the one that is most appropriate to your case, even if that solution is to move on or grin and bare it. Trying to force a situation can often times just make it that much worse. Trying to force a square peg into a round hole will just ruin both and make them useless, the same holds true in the spiritual as well.  Too much force is just as detrimental as too little and both will cause an unsatisfactory result to those seeking aid in there cases. Anyone promising larger than life results will likely cause larger than life disappointment, and that is a painful lessen to learn.
