The question, is it possible to make a real magical item was thrown at me recently.. It is a question where so many people have different opinions depending on how they grew up however i will try to be as unbiased as possible. If you have a different view then feel free to comment your opinion below or add to the topic as well.
Okay so, let’s first look at magic and what it is? Magic is the manipulation of energy which we are all connected to, to the extent that either a positive or negative outcome is produced. So what does this mean really, to me it means magic is everywhere. There is no escaping it, it is in the seams of all connected parts of life and while we are unaware of it we are wielding it nearly everyday. One example being the power you put into certain objects, another being the way you communicate or write with others.
The term spell in reality comes from the first meaning of spelling or writing which simply means the magical act of writing. When it first came about those that could write were considered very powerful and thus magic to the normal individual who had not learned the art. Now a days we all know how to spell and write, however the power of words on paper and verbally still have the same meaning.
Would i be wrong to say the words written or said “I love You” have massive meanings emotionally and can even end wars, i am not joking here, too many wars have been fought over family feuds, yet one word could be enough to stop it completely.
Take the words “I Hate You” on the other hand and pain and suffering come to hand, both these simple phrases while to some may seem like mere words, the emotions and energy attached to them can actually destroy or create. Love being the creator of course and hate being the ever consuming destroyer.
So now that i have gone over words, magic is also in actions, how we act to others, how others believe in us.. Is it true that self belief and others belief can actually improve us in a known talent or goal, it surely can, but have you considered why..? The reason being is self belief is one power in magic yet others believing in something as well increases that magic tenfold. If say you saw a spirit or ghost, to you it is real, however to others it may be seen as just your imagination, however if another shared your experience then in a sense that becomes more reality. Not only do you believe, but so does another.
Okay so back to the point again, can we then make a real magical item?
This of course is Yes, however with that being said it depends on its purpose and the belief you can empower it with. Just your belief alone may not be enough, even though you may meditate on it and share your positive energy with the item. To truly make it something magic, we need more than one, let’s say you wanted to make a magical ring, one that would say attract love. While that may seem like a good thing, to have another believing in it as well fully will make it much more powerful. This in a sense is much the same as any religion, those under the influence of religious belief can believe almost anything in it, but to the outsider it may seem like a myth or legend. Which one is right? That is not really important, the important thing is belief puts a magic influence on certain objects of power due to that belief. Eg, In christian belief the cross is a symbol of power and protection, because so many millions believe it so now that object actually does have power. Less because of the act of the religion itself and more so the act of belief on a particular object. Do you know what i mean there?
So to create a object of power then one would need belief from others in its power, history shows this as well with many objects. Objects of fear, objects of love and objects of life. Without belief in that object by many it is only then empowered by the belief of the wielder alone.
Below is a small list of symbols and objects all around us that have magical powers some of which were created for control and some created by Governments as well –
- Money – The amount of energy in money is immense, people will literally spend there whole life chasing it when in reality it is much more an illusion of control chosen by governments than to actually benefit the individual. This is why often money is referred to as the devils game because peoples devotion to it can end relationships and break so many important other values in life.
- Country Flag – The flag symbol represents so much power within a country to help control it’s people.
- Marriage Ring – A symbol of power to help keep a love bound between two individuals together. In a sense this is a spell and the ring helps keep that promise and spell active.
Okay, that is a few examples to show what i mean, it is not hard to see where this is leading and hopefully you have a better idea now on the subject.
