The second Axiom of Magic

I haven’t written on this blog for some time. The reason is that I’ve met a publisher who wants me to write a book. The book will be about the Axioms of Magic and that’s why I haven’t continued with the series. Still, I want to put the second one out there. So here it is, the second Axiom of Magic;
 When you use Words of Power, powerful things will happen.
  Words are powerful. This is the Magic of the Bard. A song or a poem can make us laugh or cry, can inspire us to great deeds or sink us to despair. During the American Civil War, Abraham Lincoln said that the song “Battle Hymn of the Republic” was worth two battalions. There is no doubt that it inspired the North. The line, “He died to make men holy, let us die to make them free.” Is especially powerful. French revolutionary actions taken during the 19th Century were inspired by the phrase of Pierre-Joseph Proudhon; “The great only appear great because we are on our knees. Let us rise.” Powerful words spoken and powerful things happened.
 A rather traditional view of a Magic spell would be the speaking of the certain words in a certain way with a clear intent to create a desired result. Have you ever been the victim of such a spell? Have you ever walked into a car dealership? Did the salesman say certain words in a certain tone with a clear intent? Then did you leave with a car and did the dealer get your money? He put a spell on you however you look at it. The word and the will achieved a powerful result.
 On a different level, the power of chanting raises vibrations that can be felt and can only be described by the experience. An example would be the fairly well known “Om Mani Padme Hum” Repeating this in a low and vibrant tone can set up powerful vibrations. Repeating the phrase or Mantra in a group setting can feel very powerful indeed. I have been in groups where the Welsh word “Awen” has been chanted with some amazing results. These are experiences that cannot be adequately described. This is the Magic of words, words can change the world and words can change your world.
More on this subject when I publish the book.
