While many people will dismiss the idea that spells; castings by one or more people sometimes known as witches or warlocks, can make changes to material and non-material things and forces, many believe in them wholesale.
Even practising spell-casters will agree that Harry Potter style spells sit firmly in the realms of fiction and fantasy. As one occasional Caster put it to me:
“the only wand that ever worked was the one Sooty, the glove puppet, used to bash Harry his handler with on TV in the 1960s!”
He was making the point that it is very easy to trivialise and ridicule spells and magic. Indeed “magic” is a much maligned word that conjures up (apologies) images of Paul Daniels and Tommy Cooper. However spells creating magic is the manipulation of naturally occurring forces by the hand and will of an experienced and ethical practitioner, perhaps using materials and incantations in support.
Modern spellcasters agree that spells cast on yourself are the ones most likely to succeed. Yes, there’s ethics and a code of conduct among modern witches; you don’t case a spell on anyone who hasn’t agreed to it first.
Spells themselves fall into some basic categories.
– Spells for healing.
– Spells for prosperity (some covens and clans do not approve of these)
– Spells for peace of mind and mental calm.
– Spell for love, including love-making prowess,.
There is a surprising number of individuals “doing their own thing” out there in Spell Land. Like a recipe, many practitioners adjust the words or the ingredients/tools used in the spell to make it their own.
Turning to the question of whether spells work, the glib answer is “it depends on how you interpret the results”. Few spell-casters believe that a wealth-creating spell will magically cause £1000 to appear in your Current Account on the night of a Full Moon. But many will argue that a spell will create the vibes, the positivity, the good karma if you will, that will allow the chances of good things happening to you to increase (including resources becoming available to you). Consequently there’s a lot of crossover between the power of positive thought, will-power, and belief in yourself and spells. Perhaps unsurprisingly, most people on one side or the other reject this. Witches say that without the connection to an external god or power (be they Pagan, Wiccan or a Native American entity) the spell won’t work. Those who preach positive thought and believe in the Law of Attraction say that the power is generated within each individual and there’s no need of semi-religious mumbo-jumbo.
I would say that from my own observations, I have seen spells work, and seen spells fail. I have seen attempts to use positive thinking and self-will succeed, and also fail. There will never be a definitive answer to the question “Do spells work?” But it seems to me that one cannot just dismiss spell-casting as hokum, any more than you can dismiss the mental powers one can find within oneself to transform your emotions, drive and facilitate, for want of a better couple of words, good fortune.
Whatever path you take, keep at it, and record your successes for us all to see!
What’s the true secret behind the Law of Attraction? I’m regularly asked. The commonest definition for the Law of Attraction is that like draws like. Even in the Bible this simple truth is outlined in the Book of Proverbs chapter 23 verse 7, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
But like attracts like, even though correct, barely explains the way in which the Law of Attraction works.
When was the Law of Attraction first recognised? The simple answer is that because it wasn’t specifically documented as such, no one knows. But it is not new!
Many inspirational and revelatory quotes spoken, recorded an attributed to great people in history appear to show that they have peered behind the curtain and tapped into what is beyond. While they may not have called it the Law of Attraction, the Universal Law, or whatever label we use today, their quotes would seem to show that they had a grasp of the core belief in the system or something closely allied to it.read more
I am writing this because I believe in Noetic Science, and a big part of this believe for me is that the Law of Attraction works. Does the law of attraction work for you yet? If not,when do you think it will start working for you? These are the standard questions and the answers depend entirely on you:
The Law Of Attraction will start working only once you have build up your belief system to eliminate any doubt in yourself and the law.
This video gives a good understanding of how we are directly responsible for our own Universe. Includes a short interview with Dean Radin of the Institute Of Noetic Sciences. Great background information for those interested in the law Of Attraction.
Napoleon Hill, who was fortunate enough to have interviewed the industrialist Andrew Carnegie in 1908, was a strong believer in the Law Of Attraction and a teacher of “The Secret”. Hill discovered that Carnegie believed that the process of success could be elaborated in a simple formula that could be duplicated by the average person. Impressed with Hill, Carnegie asked him if he was up to the task of putting together this information with only reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses to interview or analyze over 500 successful men and women, many of them millionaires, in order to discover and publish this formula for success.read more
