The Magickal Power of Words
I recently viewed a video on the Internet that demonstrated a strong message as to the power of words. It showed a blind man begging in the streets. He was seated on a piece of cardboard with a can for change and a sign that said " I'm blind" and as the day went on people would stop and throw down a quarter or dime, every so often.
Then a woman came up to him, he felt her shoes, and she reached down and took his sign and turning it over, she, with a black marker, wrote some words and placed the sign back next to the blind beggar. As the day progressed more and more people came along and started leaving much more change and monies for the blind man. Later the same woman came by, he recognized her by feeling her shoes, and he asked her. 'What did you do to my sign?' She replied, I wrote the same thing, I just used different words. The video then panned to the sign which read " It's a beautiful day, but I can't see it."
Pretty deep, huh? The witch has known for a very long time, the hidden power of words. We have, what we call, incantations, which we use along with our spells to create magickal manifestation. Words placed together that when spoken aloud, bring magickal energies to bear.
Simple incantations tend to rhyme, which allows the magickal practitioner ease in remembering them. Such a simple incantation may be "As I will it, one times three, an' it harm none, so mote it be". Simple but effective when paired with a candle spell or a potion being used, or even at the end of a longer incantation which in itself can be a spell.
Our words have power when used towards other people also. Words spoken can be forgiven, but not forgotten. Our words have the power to build up and empower another or to tear down and deject one. The power ultimately lies in your hands and in your words.
Think carefully about the words you will use in any given circumstance. Be especially careful when anger or emotion is fueling your words. For the power lies within.
Peace and Happiness
