Intent is not enough, you have to create a powerful thoughtform

You say tomato, she says tomoto... right?  Smiley

See, what's important here is that you're both using the same "Intent" in order to project. 
Intent... that's the only thing that matters.  In EVERYTHING you do.  Physical, non-physical, whatever... Intent is the only thing that makes any importance.
Thanks Xanth.   I did not think of it as intent but you are right.    If we had intent we probably would not have as many problems.

I forgot to add. On the Novenas each saint is a patron of a particular need. Since study is always a good thing I would suggest researching that. The novenas do not always tell you what the ritual is for. Also the novenas follow the same pattern as other spells. The novena is given by the spirit for a particular purpose. Another subject to research are miraglos... but I'll leave that for you to busy yourself with.

It depends on how you define witchcraft. In the new testament nothing is said about witchcraft. It's in the Levitical law. Are you following that law which includes sacrificing sheep, goats, eating kosher foods only, going outside the city to take a dump and burying it? That being said the biblical definition of witchcraft is someone who uses spirit to harm other. The practice of witchcraft as it was back then was very rough stuff. I don't think that is your interest

Christ left us with two rules as seen in the gospel of John. We are to love God and love each other..  But honestly though it's an interesting study, why not just ask God to help you do these things?  That's what he's there for right?  I think that is a bit more practical. I put the information there because it's an interesting study I think. Practically speaking I don't use those tools anymore.Yea it's fun to go into the woods and boil a kettle with some herbs on an open fire.. but there are better ways than that to really get things done.

Christianity has it's own brand of spellwork and it's worth a study. If your interested take a look at the saints of the catholic and orthodox churches.There are traditional ritual called Novenas

take a look here http://www.catholicdoors.com/prayers/novena.htm 

Again it's an interesting study but when it comes to practical work I think that learning to focus and learning to project your intent effectively is best done ex nilo.  It's also a lot cheaper.

In the study if you want to look through some reading material, try to see deeper than the superficial structure of the spell. I mean do some digging into symbolism and such. You can use that knowledge to help you learn to focus and project intent.

I often recommend the  Abramelin ritual for those new to magic. But if you cannot deeply contemplate what is in the grimoire and go beyond what the book says into the spiritual workings and meaning,  it will be an impossible thing to do.  Likewise with other spell work. You need to study more than superficial content and apply that study to spiritual principles to put into practice. ... else you'll just have a nice .. or foul smelling pot of boiled water and charcoal.

Hi

Double post by me.  Its does not mater how you got the vibrations.. you have reached the next step. To through a screwball into this is that you can leave the body without getting vibrations.  So maybe when your sences are wondering if they should.. go "should" it . hahaah

I have seen so many people write the same thing as you. You all seem to reach the vibe zone with your ways. Great, But people seem to get stuck at the point of separation. That's why I try and tell people to be quick and do something to get your own self out of your self. Not mentally thinking I will fly out of my body over their. Instead re-create the physical movements you would do when you get out of bed. Replicate that when you have vibes and you will or should exit.

When you have vibes , can you see through your eyelids in the direction your head and eyes are pointed while sleeping?

Thanks BTP for chiming in along with Xanth. Nice to see someone on that has some experience with this. BTW you wouldn't happen to know how I can reconcile Christianity with witchcraft would you?
I'm sure she'll ask, but... what do you feel you need to reconcile?  What do you feel is incompatible between them?

Agreed.  It's kind of like the anecdote that Tom Campbell tells of trying to heal someone of some ailment.  If the ailment keeps coming back after being "healed", then it's probably there for a good reason, and that reason is a learning experience for the individual.  Simply put, you can't remove something from someone which they a) don't want removed in the first place or b) they NEED to have in order for their spiritual growth to occur.  They have a lesson they *MUST* learn from it and you can't change that outcome.  Forcing a change in that outcome would then be a negative spiritual growth experience because you're attempting to manipulate them to how YOU think they should be.

I used to practice spells and I was fairly good at it even before I knew what was going on.  I think it can be an okay tool as long as you understand what is happening. Xanth just did a good job of explaining the workings. That being said you do have to be careful to make sure your not working against your spiritual development. The spell tends to bite back when you do that. I don't necessarily believe in the wiccan law of 3 but from personal experience, doing spells for purposes that will interfere with spiritual development will either fall flat on their faces or bite you in the @$$.  Divine connection is very very important when doing any kind of work like this. That connection needs to be strong, and your mind in good order. You need to have unwavering and calm focus and be able to channel your intent.


A little interesting historical note. The spells you see often that stem from animistic practice ( ancestor worship) are given to the practitioner by the spirits of the ancestors. According to scandinavian belief ( that was my practice before) the spells can only be passed on to one other person or they loose their power. 

A strong belief in this translated it to reality. The spells can be seen in folklore.  The Finnish Kalevela is an example of this. The continuity between the ancestor dieties and the spell are very clear when you look at them this way.  Scriptures are often used as charms. You see this in Jewish, Christian,  and Islamic traditions. The famous Hoo doo spells as recorded by Hyatt are another traditional magic which is passed down orally and has origins in ancestor worship.

 I think the study of spells is very interesting and worthwhile. I would encourage you to explore and don't stay in the box. Exploring spirituality, the connection and oneness with the Divine, and how that relates to physical life in the past and it's applications for the present are fascinating.  The one thing to stay away from is a superficial literal minded approach. This rarely works for people. Instead look deeply at the spiritual and sympathetic principles and symbolisms presented and how that applies to spiritual practice for development.
