What are spells?

To some, spells may be considered a demonic form of prayer originally used in witchcraft. Some religions believe that spells are evil and said to false gods, and are in no way related to hymns or prayers.

In certain forms of paganism, spells are forms of prayer asking the divine for guidance and help. Below you will find one pagan's perspectives on spells and how they are meant to be used in worship:

It is believed that spells should rhyme to make them stronger. People should make up their own spells because when it comes from your heart to your Gods it means so much more.

True Witches don't just do spells for the fun of it. If your car tire goes flat - does a Christian sit down in the grass and pray for God to come down and fix it for them? I hope not. Neither would a Witch. Bothering your dieties over ever little thing is annoying and proves you can't take care of yourself. It's a sure way to annoy them. :o)

Spells don't get answered immediately. So forget about the movies and the big poof of sparkles and the twitching of noses to make things appear or disappear. They take time.

So again, spells are beautiful, coodinated prayers to our Gods. Think of Church, with the incense floating, the music in the backround, the candles everywhere, the chalice o the altar, the bowl of water on the side...sounds familiar to a Witch's altar to pray doesn't it? They are both prayer, both meaningful and both beautiful.

Spells are a form of prayers and are some what the same and it takes time for spells and rituals to work but spells are a little different from normal praying in magic you have to study to gain knowledge of what true magic is and how it works studying goes for must things in life because knowledge is power and also in the arts/magic you must do the mathematics(math)and add in the probability(chance) and add in the right items to get the best effects of the craft and just like every thing in life you don't get what you want all the time and the craft is just like a food recipe you must add in the right ingredients to get the best taste you like or want and that is how the craft works you must study the craft,do the math,add in the probability(chance)and add in the right items that represent what your goals/mission is and once you do all 4 the right way you will get a effect in some way but don't forget you don't get what you want all the time and thats how it works with true magic/the arts.
