Weekly Witchy Challenge - Sounds of Magick - ENTRY
Sounds and Magick are a very interesting topic to me as of late but… as a little girl I would hear different sounds that I should not be able to hear. For example, when I was about 4 years old, I would hear voices in fans. The fan in my bedroom window, the car, in a store and so on. I could never hear enough to understand what was being said. This, at the age of 60, still happens to me. An apartment I was living in, I would constantly hear someone, or something call my name. In the same place, I saw a Jin at the end of my bed. At a different place I lived I would hear music/party no one was there but me. This house was built in the late 1800’s and was creepy. It has servant’s quarters with a back stairway. My room was off those stairs. I heard footsteps in the room next to me, so I called my husband (almost) to come over but of course the footsteps stopped. The next night was a whole different story. He heard them too and called everyone home (5 of us). Every night we would have a house alert. This was a search from attic to basement with fully automatic weapons. They could not comprehend ghosts or demons (I think they might have been Demons themselves). Anyway, sounds with witchcraft sounded like a fascinating topic to me. I started researching and this is what I found:
"Everything, every single thing in this universe vibrates at a certain frequency, from every atom in every blade of grass on Earth through to every planet and star in the sky. It’s all formed and maintained by electromagnetic energy. This is the very same energy we seek to tap into for Crafting. Even words themselves have frequencies when spoken, as do herbs, foods, spices, colors, candles, cards, etc. etc. etc. In my opinion, the best way to raise your vibration is via entrainment. This is the energy work I’m doing with frequency healing. By use of crystal singing bowls, Solfeggio tuning forks, and Solfeggio frequencies through headphones, I’ve managed to heal not only my body, but also my mind and my ethereal other self. And my power has increased. "
Hanging a bell by your front door helps raise vibrations through sound. This simple spell will help to keep negativity and spirits that mean you harm, away from your home and family. The following incantation will help activate or enchant your bells:
- “Guard our Home, Bell on the Door, let Evil Spirits come no More.
- Evil Spells shall Not be Cast, and Good Fortune shall Ever Last.
- So Mote it Be!”
Witches love to hang little bells from their doorknobs to scare away unwanted spirits. You can hang three little bells from your doorknob and chanting the following spell three times: (Spells8, Francisco Huanaco, August 18, 2023)
“Guard my Home, Bells on the Door, Let Only Blessings walk on this Floor,
Block all Evil and the Dark Arts, May only Good Approach our Hearts.”
What is the Meaning of Breaking a Plate?
Breaking a plate is considered to bring good luck or ward off evil spirits. It’s believed that the act of shattering something symbolizes the breaking of negative energy or bad luck in your life. The negative energy is believed to be released by shattering something, and then the positive energy can flow in. So, if you find yourself accidentally smashing a plate, take it as a sign that things are about to turn around for the better! (Spells8, Huanaco, August 18, 2023)
The term “sounds magical” can have different meanings. In the context of the Japanese word “Kotodama”, it refers to the belief that sounds can magically affect objects, and that ritual word usages can influence our environment, body, mind, and soul. English translations of “Kotodama” include “soul of language”, “spirit of language”, “power of language”, “power word”, “magic word”, and “sacred sound”. In another context, “sounds magical” can refer to something that has seemingly supernatural qualities or powers. (2023, April 28 Kotodama. In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia.)
