Words are Spells
So use them carefully
“The syntactical nature of reality, the real secret of magic, is that the world is made of words. And if you know the words that the world is made of, you can make of it whatever you wish.” -Terence McKenna
Since my journey to the jungles back in 2015, I’ve spent a lot of time in the world of personal development and transformative technology. The words we choose are incredibly important.
Dignity of the Individual starts with the Self, so a good practice is to “Speak from I” in a spirit of responsibility while being self-aware of potential narcissism. A way to “read” energy is see how people (including one’s self) speak and how that applies to responsibility and ego.
The Secret is a book and movie that popularized the idea of manifestation.
It is commonly dismissed as new age magical thinking, but manifestation is simply transmuting ideas and imagination into physical reality. Obviously, words alone are not enough. However, our words reflect our subconscious, and if we listen to ourselves and others, we can begin to tap into the archetypes and symbols that are beneath the surface of our physical reality.
We have symbolic minds, and words are spells.
We are all witches and wizards, so speak with care.
I am doing my best to. It is a practice.
