To do magic
Life is such an exquisite magic that everything conspires to spoil it.
These wise words of Emily Dickinson have a meaning deeper than meets the eye. It tells us that the greatest magic in life is life itself. Think about this; how you came into existence, what you are destined to do and how you live in harmony with all. It’s all pretty magical. We face many obstacles in life, many of which threaten our existence and break this spell. Others simply cause us unnecessary discomfort. In a scenario like this, it would be perfectly justified if one should learn the art of communicating with the spiritual universe in order to have a better life.
This is the purpose of spells; to give some positive energy to the universe and ask for what one desires. I qualify the word positively because it is considered wrong to use magical powers to injure. It is a law of witchcraft, what one projects; one returns triple. This means that if you use spells for a negative purpose, you will end up getting three times as much bad luck back.
So, now that we are familiar with its purpose, let’s move on to the activity. Doing magic is a very general term. If you’re a moviegoer, you’ve probably seen people waving a wand and chanting a spell; and the task is accomplished. Unfortunately (or perhaps for good), this is not the case. Doing magic is much more complicated.
If one were to study the history and geographical significance of spell casting, one would find that the action varies according to region and time. Africans and Native Americans used wands and crystals to cast spells and offered gifts to gain spiritual powers. The Egyptians and Greeks cast spells directly, using very little or no tools other than the spell. These are some examples. If one digs deeper, one will find many more such stories.
However, now the situation has changed. We are now faced with a variety of options for casting spells regardless of our background. And we can choose from the variety that is displayed. Although the spells may be different in practice, the theory behind them is the same, which is why the preparation we do before practicing them is standard.
The things to remember before casting a spell are very simple. First, one must be mentally healthy. This means you need to remove all negative and distracting thoughts from your mind. This can be done through meditation. Second, one should feel clean and pure. It is a common practice for people to bathe in essential oils such as rosemary before attempting a spell. Third, one must find a soothing environment to perform the spell. And last but not least, one must have faith and be positive.
