Mythology Part Three: Spells and Magick

I believe each of us has much more spiritual power—more magickal power—than we give ourselves credit for. There are spells for invisibility, for patience, for letting go…there are all kinds of spells that can serve us if we only begin to understand how they work.

The patience spell is simple. Ever been stuck in traffic? Ever arrive at an event only to find a huge line for tickets or food or bathroom? Sure you have. It is at these times you can use the patience spell. It simply involves connecting all of the unlimited patience of the universe into your life at that moment. In becoming mindful at this moment, you realize that, from the perspective of Eternity, your situation is very small and will quickly pass.

It is important to modify your behavior at these moments so that the spell will work. You can’t just call upon the universe and sit there, expecting to be saved. Instead, as you wait in traffic, find a good radio station, make a “to do” list (as long as traffic is not moving, of course), or sort through the junk in your briefcase.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used this spell and how wonderfully it works. There will be times when I arrive at a particular point to find many people in line, but instead of becoming frustrated, I cast the patience spell and distract myself. Then, when I return to the situation, I almost always find that the line is gone or the traffic has abated. It works almost every time.

It will definitely make your life more enjoyable. Welcome to the world of magick.

I'm sorry, but Dr. Dee, could you go into a little more detail as to why you define this advice as a spell or magick? Is it because it involves distracting your mind or redirecting your focus -the old "hand-is-quicker-than-the-eye" methodology.
