Spells and magic or magick, as the Crowleyans and some others prefer.
Every spiritual path that's spiritual has them. A priest transforms bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ, that's magick. And for those who say that they don't do magick - then does a Baptist get nothing from being baptized except wet?
And so, what do you need to know to make your own magick effective? What are some of the basic rules? Are there lines not to cross? Are there some basic points that will work for just about anyone working magick, whether they call it that, or if they insist that they are simply praying?
In a Buddhist temple, a Synagogue, a church, a monastery or a covenstead, what might the common points be?
Before we get into the heavier stuff, let's look at this.
