Affirmations, prayer, and spells involve incantations, otherwise known as chants or a series of words. They have been in use since the early days of civilization and evidence of their existence can be found on ancient artifacts. Historically, incantations were often designed to bring about good luck or curse people, but they were also used for spiritual purposes.
Wikepedia’s definition of an incantation is “a spell, a charm, an enchantment or a bewitchery, intended to trigger a magical effect on a person or objects. The formula can be spoken, sung or chanted. An incantation can also be performed during ceremonial rituals or prayers.”
Incantations are words within a spell. A spell may contain multiple other elements such as:
As a spell develops, incantations help create adhesion and continuity and can stand alone and be used as a powerful method for visualizing and pursuing life or daily goals.
Words create results
In Ambrosia Howthorne’s blog post about “Writing Your Own Incantations,” she wrote; “Words deeply affect everyone and everything around us, so it would make sense that incantations, chants, or affirmations are powerful.”
If you think about it, everything around us is composed of vibrations. If you want to expand positive energy, and inspire yourself or others to change, adopting a ritualistic approach to stringing words together and carefully choosing those words can help. Consciousness is its own energy field – make it work for you.
Incantations help turn intentions into habits
Further, repeating incantations strengthens beliefs. The more you hear, think, and say the same series of words, the more deeply they embed in your mind. You can purposely adopt a belief by planting it in your brain via an incantation.
Incantations are powerful, not only because they help turn intentions into habits, but also because creating them pushes you to clarify what you want. Once your wish is put into words, you can focus on carrying out the right actions to spawn desired results.
Incantations help you identify your needs and provide a vehicle in which they can travel and build. Affirmations, for instance, work when repeated often. Self-belief grows as layer upon layer of positive words shift your perspective. Your motivation toward what you want increases when you say your chosen incantations, since you are keep your intentions in mind.
Often, incantations are associated with transformative experiences, which may be felt in an emotional and physical sense as they occur. Some people report feeling their hearts fill with energy while others become calm and enter a state of flow. Such creative frames of mind are thought to link with heightened awareness, pinpoint focusing, and an enhanced desire to reach goals.
Incantations can work for you, helping to strengthen your beliefs and change your behavior so you are successful in life. However, your attitude and how well you practice them matters. They must be repeated often and earnestly to work.
Create Your Own Incantations
Chants are phrases, words, and syllables repeated for a purpose. Most people chant mantras for spiritual purposes. Incantations allow you to use your imagination. As long as your imagination and intention are in the right place, the words will flow.
The easiest way to write an incantation is to break it down into three sections; past (or trouble), present (or request), and future (intention/the desired outcome). You can also add a chant to your incantation, which will help raise energy. Adding rhythm to your incantations adds power to your words and also makes it easy to remember.
