I always wondered about MAGIC, not magician magic but you know, the Magick kind. I had a lightbulb moment when I read what some sage said "Magick is a Science not an Art". In other words magick is a formula rather than the refinement of an appealing, pleasing form. Scientific formula is one that produces repeatable results, it's technology. So if you get the right formula then it works. I understood for the first time that spells did have creative power but would leave that to those that interests. Like all women I may have some creative ways but don't practice Magick...or do I? It occurred to me that if you take away the occult trappings that 'casting a spell' is no different than making an affirmation. Both seek to manifest by SPEAKING THE WORD. I think the accoutrements began back in prehistoric times when a shaman or clan leader around the cave fire shook his bone rattles/beat the drum so the clan would situp and listen and ANNOUNCED what he intended-to go there and kill meat or new rules etc and if he was in his AUTHORITY it worked. Today's light and sound mind machines for meditation utilizes the same mind shifting that firelight flickering on a cave wall did (ditto strobe-lights/disco balls). Add beating drums/shaking rattles of bone to access the vibrational frequency (why warriors going to battle were accompanied by pipers or drummers revving them up). As king of the domain the 'spell' was repeated with success and along the way they believed they had to have the fire, rattles, drum to 'get lucky' as well when it was his Word spoken with intent that was the Magick that made the creation. Magick is just another way of using Universal Law and we all do it whether we know it or not. We all wish and want our desires that creates our reality. Shake rattle and roll is a nod to the ancestors around the campfire. So get your mojo working, amplify with emotion, rattle dem bones and attract the frequency you wish...Drum-roll please... "voilà"!
