  1. Funny FAQ!

    So much is misunderstood. There are people practicing dark magic and others working with light magic. These are not the same yet people lump it all together. Unfortunate.

    I don’t want to speak out of turn since I’m not Wiccan or a Witch, but it seems to me spells are like prayers. Is that right?

    I like how introspective people from your (general) path can be. I tend towards introspection too.

  2. I’m sorry it took me so long to respond to this! I appreciate your questions and comments. I do agree that there are people practicing magic with very different intentions. You also asked a great question about whether spells are like prayers. I think in many ways that is true. I have often called it “prayer with something to do with your hands.” Having said that, the driving force is somewhat different. When doing spellwork we are working with the natural energies of our selves and our universe and the power of our intention (or our will) to manifest change in the world or our lives, etc. When it comes to more traditional forms of prayer, the petitioner is asking God to make those things happen for them. Half of the people doing spells believe that God/Goddess/Gods/Whoever is helping them to do their work anyway, in that case, I agree, it’s back to being like prayer. There is also what some people would call “petition magic” which is definitely prayer because the worker is petitioning the divine, or a mediator like a saint (just one example) to help make the changes they are requesting.

    Excellent question! I think in the end, the only big differences are in the terminology and we are all going to find out that we’re all on the same train, in different train cars. 🙂

    Thanks again and lots of blessings to you!
