Manifesting using magic, spells or prayer

wheel6titleAnother interesting manifesting tool, ancient but powerful, is that of magic, or magik.  Reality is changed using spells or incantations and the energies of the mind, natural enegies and even energies of  outside forces.

There seems many forms and different ways of doing magic or changing reality with spells.  To complex, as an outsider, to easily sum up. All you can say is, like prayer,  spells and incantations can be seen as  another form of mind focus and may also be tapping into a higher energy.

As I understand it Wiccans often use the power and energy of the natural world and the elemental to enhance and strengthen any intent or spell. This is particularly powerful in a circle or group situation.

Is magic just mind power, mind power enhanced by outside energies, or , as in prayer, an attempt to harness creator beings to alter reality on your behalf?

The answer depends again on your belief system or understanding of the nature of our reality. As in prayer, the anecdotal belief that it works is quite considerable. The only difference worth noting is the fact that whilst generally prayer seeks to improve and benefit, magic  in the wrong hands can be used to dark purposes also. It is all attempted manifestation though!

Aspects of Reality

1-Magic (and prayer) may be mind power enhanced with outside energies.

2-Both may be using an intervention of outside powers.

The moon, the Goddess and magick

Researching the significance of the moon in magick and as a Goddess for this blog has turned out to be a personal voyage of discovery. Indeed I would go as far as to say my understanding of the big picture of our reality has been widened and new tantalizing clues what is actually going on in the universe have been revealed to me.

Goddess Moon

The moon has been revered as a Goddess almost since the beginnings of time. She has had many names and been worshiped in many guises. She also has been and is extensively used to facilitate Magick. (The extra K is used to distinguish it from stage magic etc).

Magick can be defined as an effort to make a change in ones, or other’s life by using ones own personal energy and the energy of surrounding elements. This can be done by spells, ritual or intention. The question is, how is the moon, in any guise, able to facilitate or enhance this? The answer is, of course, depends on the real nature of the moon. Interestingly even within those using the moon, Pagans, Witches, Wiccans and others there are differences in understanding about the real nature of her and what process is actually going on.

Alternative views on the true nature of the moon.

  • As the Earth is seen as a sentient being (Gaia) who has merely clothed herself in planet form, so is the moon. She is here to help humanity.

  • The moon represents a Goddess. The Goddesses were here before Christianity or Judaism, and are available to help humanity. They have been pushed out of mainstream consciousness but have always been there. Their power is rising again with the ascent of the feminine spirit. They are available to help when asked.

  • The energies and electromagnetic flux of the moon are used to enhance spells or intentions. Every phase of the moon contains a certain energy. This energy affects us and everything on Earth. The moons visual phases just reflect the changing position of the moon and its position re the sun. These apparent phases merely signify the changing energy throughout the lunar cycle. The energies are here for our use but are themselves neutral.

The above is just my synthesis of all the wonderful information that I have been privileged to receive, special thanks to CrowMoon. All of those aspects can be seen as manifestations of spirit helping us. The real question arising, though, is where do these Goddesses themselves come from? What big picture of the universe does their existence indicate? What do you think?

Aspects of reality

1-Where do these Goddess’s come from? Did they participate in our creation?

2- The energies of the Earth and moon can be used to enhance manifestation.

 

 

Magic as an evolutionary tool?

Recently I found  an article proposing not religious belief, but magic as an evolutionary tool. (more…)
