The Law of Contagion states that things, which have once been in contact with each other, continue to act on each other at a distance even after physical contact has been severed.
So let’s take this concept and expand on it. If things we’ve owned or touched as well as bodily fluids or pieces of our physical body all still hold this magickal link to us, what does this imply about our body after death? Does our corpse still hold this magickal link? And if we were cremated, does this also apply to our ashes? What about organs, blood or plasma that we’ve donated? Does it matter whether we were alive or dead during the donation? Do these parts still hold our personal vibrational signature? And if so, what does that imply? Does that individual now know intimate things about us? About our life? Our secrets? Our personality? What about the idea of taking the cremation ashes of a beloved and adding them to the ink of a tattoo that is then injected into the skin? Believe it or not - this is a common and even popular practice. These tattoos are called commemorative or ritual tattoos. And while there are articles that discuss the health concerns surrounding this practice I’m more interested in the application of The Law of Contagion. Is the link stronger than that of a stranger because it is the ashes of a beloved?
I think this idea is fascinating and thought provoking. The Law of Contagion implies that all these circumstances would in fact tie the receiver to the donor in a very intimate way. The personal vibrational signature would be retained within the item that was donated be it a kidney, a heart, bone, blood or other body part. Perhaps the receiver could even access memories and emotions of the donor. While I understand that we are all connected to each other and can access this same information through Spirit, for me there is at least an imagined ‘safe guard’ that some things pertaining to me and my life experience would not be shared unless I approved it. This may just be fantasy on my part but it makes me feel somewhat comfortable and at ease that all my dirty little secrets wouldn’t be exposed to a stranger without my consent. But after discussing and
contemplating what The Law of Contagion defines I now understand that the recipient of: my personal property, parts of my physical body or my remains are given unlimited access to my life experiences and binds me magickally or energetically to that individual. And to be honest with you, dear reader, I’m not too sure how I actually feel about this.
