Magic is alluring. Since time immemorial, magic though an occult science has always been a part of every era and age. If it were merely a fantasized art, it wouldn’t have endured through so many centuries to today. Even if we refuse to believe its existence and power, it is there and has an impact on our lives. Magic is known to be practiced by the witches, wizards, shamans, pagans and so on. And spells are their modes of executing a particular magical concoction.
Though most of us assume magic to be only black or dark in nature, the truth is, most practitioners of magic practice white magic which is only meant for everything good like curing, healing, bringing good fortune, conferring love and so on. Magic is a vast and an infinite aspect that is influenced largely by people, their beliefs, religion, psychology and so many other factors. That is why magic varies vastly in different parts of the world among people of different ethnicities. Magic spells also thus, vary with the magic.
Magic spells are nothing but a formula or a recipe of some specific rituals or incantations to achieve the required goal. Spells could be verbal, like muttering some words, say for instance, Abracadabra, or could be objects such as talismans, potions or could be simply a collection of actions like flicking of a wand and so on. Spells can be of any form. And spells can be of any nature, in that they could be mild or could be extremely powerful.
Remember, spells are just like mathematical formulas which need to be precise and perfect to get the desired answers and results. The ingredients, the incantations have to be perfectly prepared and executed, and it is not easy. Magic is the work of the mind and various other paranormal forces which have to be synergized to for achieving what is desired. It requires immense mental strength, concentration and focus, and above all an understanding of magic. As you go deeper into understanding the nitty gritties of how spells work, you would learn what a complex science it is. All those who are expert spell casters have become so after years of immense learning, practicing and growth.
Certain religions like Wicca and Santeria adopt magic as a part of their life, just like we resort to prayers and idol worshipping. For them magic is the fulfillment of their religious quest. The magic spells vary with every ethnicity and religion and the way they are performed, with the intention that they are cast; everything varies.
Magic spells are not something one can or should try just out of curiosity or for the fun of it, because, they can be dangerous. You might have heard of jinxes, hexes and curses. They are nothing but spells of vindictive and malevolent nature meant to bring harm and distress to a certain person. Then there are love spells which are meant to usher love into lives of people.
There are several factors contributing to how the spells work. Often most spell casters take into consideration the time and period when the spell should be cast like each of the different moon phases like full moon, waxing moon, waning moon or the new moon. Also, the ingredients and tools that are used have to pass certain criterion like they have to be cleansed, charged and so on. The most important factor that affects the viability of the spell is mental state and condition of the spell caster. He has to be in the right state and frame of mind to conjure up the spiritual and physical forces to do his bidding.
