EVERYDAY SPELLS

WHAT’S MAGIC? IT SEEMS A QUESTION WITH AN EASY AND IMMEDIATE ANSWER, BUT IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT, IT’S NOT AT ALL. "MAGICIAN" NOWADAYS STANDS MOSTLY FOR ILLUSIONIST O CONJURER; WHILE THE WORD "WITCH" CONJURE AUTOMATICALLY IN ALL OF US THE IMAGE OF A MYTHOLOGICAL BEING RIDING A BROOM OR WORSE THE IDEA OF AN EVIL AND UNPLEASANT WOMAN.
BUT IN REALITY THERE'S MUCH MORE AROUND THE CONCEPT OF MAGIC.
TODAY WE WILL DISCOVER MAGIC IN A MORE POETIC AND DAILY WAY, TO BETTER UNDERSTAND HOW EACH ONE OF YOU IS ABLE TO MAKE “SMALL” SPELLS WITHOUT EVEN BEING AWARE OF IT.

Underlying all magical literature there are the concepts of “good and evil”, translated in this field in “white magic” and “black magic”. To simplify it, one move from good intentions while the other one is designed to cause damage or harm.

Now, the element at the basis of magic is only one and it’s very simple: intention.

For intention we mean our will, directing our thoughts toward a specific goal.

The thought has a great power of interaction with reality, because it’s energy and Einstein taught us that energy is matter. This simple equivalence, which represented the most important scientific revolution of the twentieth century, also explains why sometimes the things we desire the most come true.

If the thought is matter, this has the power to interact with other matter by definition.

So here are the spells that everyone launchs every day: our desires. The “positive thinking”, beyond the exploitation and the new age allure that took over this term, is an exhortation to consider the power of each one of us to “create” a reality more in line with our wishes. But be careful, because as you can express a benevolent desire, even the desire to harm your neighbor has the power to move that kind of energy.

While negative people attract negativity, the positive ones tends to attract positivity.

A “magic wand” is, in fact, a tool that conveys energy. Now, remember that we’re all made of energy. Our whole body is an accumulator and an energy carrier. So your hands are the most powerful magic wands you can ever have.

Think of some very common human behaviors: to give us courage and comfort, we bring our hand to the chest (the area corresponding to one of the central energy nodes of the body). Instead, to “block” someone, we extend our arm in front of us, with the palm towards anyone who’s approaching. Unconsciously, with these gestures we move energy directing it toward a specific goal.

Turning to the “magic items”, in a previous article we talked about the stones, precious or not, explaining how each one is a magic item by nature. Other magic items of common use are those that we consider as “lucky charms”. It’s enough to “invest” an object of this responsibility in order to develop this function.

And finally, “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”. You’re all sorcerer’s apprentices of yourself, your teacher is your inner voice. Your instincts, the voice of your heart, the truth that come to the surface by turning off rational thinking: that’s your most magical side and you should hone the ability to listen. Human nature is magical, it means we’re connected with the power grid we’re in, and that’s simply the reality in which we live.

Magic is something innate within us: being aware of it helps us to “use it” better.
