Blood and power
By: / Beginner
Post # 1

Are there any differences between magic practioners whose ancestors have practiced it and those who are the first in their family to do so? I don't count those who are taught by practicing members from a young age. Practice makes perfect after all.

If you are a first generation magical practioner will your children be more gifted?

Does it only work for direct descendants?

If its true why does this work like Lamarckian theory?

I've never seen or read anything to suggest that a talent or interest in magick is inherited from one's ancestry. In fact, Aleister Crowley has achild with absolutely no interest in magick, which would seem remarkably unlikely if anything magical were inherited.

I have seen people who have had several generations all seemingly more "tuned in" to magical and spiritual qualities. At the same time, I have seen singular individuals who practice and have some sense for these things without any apparent qualities of this nature existing in their family.

Much of it depends on the individual. I would say the traits passed on have or to do with the predisposition toward being open to such things. An open mind, intelligence, etc. Some of it is inherited. Some of it is nurtured.

I don't think there is any connection.
There are people who are naturally gifted, although their ancestors were not even interested in magic.
There are magic families which most of their members are gifted, but it never means it is because they come from that specific family.
People can be the only members of their family interested in magick, but can be as good as people who belong to magic families or even more...
Magic is not as genetic as hair color, hight, voice, eyes, body, etc.
Magic is a way of life which you choose to do or not.
If your grandma is an adept in magick, it never means you will be like her too...

being related to a witch would help, but it's no guarantee the child will posses strong gifts, or even magic at all. it comes down to practice, genetics is another factor but it's not the be all and end all. the example i like giving out id from Practicle Magic, two sisters from a family of witches who date back to the burning times, one can cast without any effort, while the other takes a lot of concentration to cast and even then it's not very well. in my optinion it's practice that counts.

I don't necassarily mean stronger. I was also wondering if witches who come from a long line of practiotioners interpret and work with magic differently.I'm going to assume that they don't though
