12 Magic(k) Spells

posted by Gus diZerega

Beliefnet has just published their first ‘Pagan gallery’ – 12 Magic Spells

Some are more workings than spells in the narrower sense, and bring in several traditions of folk magick.  I have not used any of these particular spells or workings myself, but  some are similar to ones I do use, and several look worth looking into.  Go take a look see. (The site still is a little buggy, I’ve noticed.)

Done right, spells shift the odds in our favor.  No guarantees – but over time if you are good at it, the occurrence of magick in my definition of the term does become pretty clear: “The non-coincidental occurrence of meaningful coincidences.”

The spells I use most often are for finding parking places and another for opening stuck locks and the like.  They work . . . like magick!

Can’t get past the intro without a password… that’s beyond “buggy”

Cully-
Did you get to the first page? If so, click the first blue heading below the black text to continue further. If that still doesn’t work, I’ll notify the guys in charge. It works for me mostly.

Hi Gus,
The first “slide” won’t work, but the ones underneath for subsequent pages do.
I agree, these are workings and not, strictly speaking, spells. Spells begin with words, and can include oils or dirt or other accessories, but the essence of spelling is words. The early medieval meaning of spell was story, so you could say, a spell is a story you tell over to yourself until it is true. You “bind” a spell by saying or writing or repeating it. I just wrote on this in my blog earlier this week, and called it “Binding Words.”

Thanks for posting this link though.

I’ve been doing spells since the 60′s. The essence of a spell to me is the intention and the ability to move the energy with it. When you work with energy, and it does take some practice, you will know it, feel it and sometimes even see it. Parking spaces, yeah that’s the easy one…I’ve been trying for some more fulfilling things than that, however, I continue to work on it. And I have manefested many great things in my life, including, my 45 pound weight loss. This was a spell and also I refer to it as the use of holistic method, as holistic work truly is like using spell work, you must put your body, mind and spirit into it. So that when moving energy with the intention you have of making something happen, or perhaps it is allowing it to happen, you are doing something holistically. Check out my blog above on my space. I wrote a book, with a 2nd one coming out soon, which describes the methods I used to lose the weight and maintain my weight loss.

Do you think Judika had originally written “allegedly” into all of these spells, or did Beliefnet add them to add an aura of skepticism? Hmmm…

Spell casting works wonderfully, if you believe.. Eventually, it’s always the power of your belief. Our belief has an incredible power. The stronger it is – the higher chances for your spells of wishes to actually happen..

Earth Day and the Sacredness of the Earth
I think Earth Day is a particularly important moment for contemplation and commitment by us Pagans.  Often American Christian critics accuse us of “pantheism,” and in a important respect they are right.  We do find the sacred, most of us, in the earth without reference to any transcendental sp

Instructive examples on why interfaith work is a good idea
I deeply believe the problems in our country are more of the heart than of the head.

They speak more eloquently than anything I can write that interfaith work is a good

The controversy over Pink Slime - and what it means.
The controversy over pink slime is helping educate Americans to the fact that corporations are as beneficial to agriculture as they are to politics. Tom Laskawy put it pithily: “What pink slime represents is an open admission by the food industry that it is hard-pressed to produce meat that won’

How the "war on religion' backfired into a war on women
Here  is a really good article by Tina DuPuy on how the Republicans got themselves into such a mess with America's more intelligent women.  Left undiscussed is how the extreme pathological masculinity of both their deity and their leaders made that slip so very easy.
