It is because I am so enamored with words that I know they hold power. All words possess a power that is uniquely their own,
Everything existing on the physical plane began on the astral plane as a thought or idea; that thought or ideal, whether it was our own or someone else’s, was birthed through the element of Air on the Astral Plane and was manipulated by the element of Fire through our Will and fueled by Water through our emotions to become manifested on the Earth through physical words, whether written, spoken, or enacted. Words are a physical manifestation of an energetic vibration that already exists on the astral that resonates with the same energy and when a Witch aligns his or herself with that vibrational frequency we harness that power and siphon it into our practice. This is the whole concept behind correspondences. Think: “as above, so below”. It’s not a new concept; it’s been around for ages!
Words can be used in so many ways. The power of the written and spoken word can be used to manifest a variety of intentions; some honest and authentic and some, well, let’s just say, not so honest or authentic. We can use the power of our words to heal ourselves and others, such as when chanting the mantra “om mani padme hum”, we can also use the power to harm, such as screaming derogatory names at another person or group of persons with the intention to cause them pain and suffering. We have the ability to use words to purposefully deceive others by persuading them to change their opinion about something, to entice them into purchasing something they may not need, or to convince them of something that is factually untrue.
But then again … it is the power of the word and the ability of the Witch to wield it.
