What are spells, really?

I’ve always told people that spells are prayers which involve your entire body.

If you stop and think of it, most people pray according to their base religion. Some stand, some sit, some kneel, some do combinations of all of the above. The Catholics are really cool in that they keep their congregation from boredom by making them do all of the above during the ritual.

We do the same, but I think we have more fun at it.

We don’t kneel much though (unless it’s to light the fire – unless we can think of a more dramatic way of lighting it). Maybe, since almost all of us came from a different religious background, should incorporate, instead of run from, kneeling as part of our prayer (spell work).

I’m thinking that if we kneel, then that old (black magic? – sorry, I’m into songs sometimes) religious learning that we’ve had ingrained into our cells will kick in and help us to realize that spellwork is prayer.

Blessed Be All of You,

  1. Hi Raven!

    I wanted to let you know that the “Other People” tract you have here was written originally by Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, from the Church of All Worlds, the first legally recognized Pagan church in the US (the Frosts started the first legally recognized Wiccan church in the US). It was printed into tracts by Pete Pathfinder of the ATC (Aquarian Tabernacle Church), a Pagan church in the state of Washington. He still sells them, along with a tract about Heathens and school prayer. Thought you might like to know. :o) Good to “meet” you!
