To cast a spell
Life is such an exquisite spell that everything conspires to break it.
These wise words of Emily Dickinson have a deeper meaning than meets the eye. It tells us that the greatest magic in life is life itself. Think about it; how you came into existence, what you are destined to do and how you live in harmony with everything. It’s all pretty magical. We face many obstacles in life, many of which threaten our existence and break this spell. Others just cause us unnecessary inconvenience. In such a scenario, it would be completely justified for him to study 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 specify the word positive, because it is considered wrong to use magical powers to harm. It is a law of sorcery, that which one projects; one becomes triple. This means that if you were to use the spells for a negative purpose, you would end up getting three times the misery right away.
So, now that we know its purpose, let’s move on to the activity. Casting a spell is a very general term. If you’re a movie buff, you’ve probably seen people waving a wand and repeating an incantation; and the task is done. Unfortunately (or perhaps for good), this is not the case. Casting a spell is much more complicated.
If one were to study the history and geographical significance of spellcasting, one would find that the act varied from region to region and era. African Americans 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 few or no tools other than the spell. Here are some examples. If one were to dig deeper, one would find many more such stories.
However, now the situation has changed. We are now faced with several options for casting spells, regardless of our origins. And we can choose from the variety shown. Although the spells may be different in practice, the theory behind them is the same, so the preparation we do before casting them is standard.
The things to remember before casting a spell are very simple. First, one must be mentally strong. This means that you must remove all negative and distracting thoughts from your mind. This can be done through meditation. Second, you need to feel clean and pure. It is common practice for people to bathe in essential oils such as rosemary before attempting a spell. Third, you need to find a comforting environment to perform the spell. And last but not least, you need to have faith and be positive.
