A neat idea, well to me anyways, would be to make a spell to temporarily give us the effect of a numb, pain-free body. I was watching my brother get his first tattoo on Saturday, and he said it started hurting more by the end of it. I'm just wondering if anyone else thinks this would be cool. We could get a piercing, tattoo, or possibly an injury like from skateboarding. All opinions appreciated!
It does sounds like it would be cool, but I doubt it's possible to do. Two things you can't do with magick is change you're dna or the laws of nature. Attempting to increase your pain threshold or reduce your body sense of feeling would fall under changing dna, so it can't be done, unfortunately.
I think its possible to an extent. Why couldn't you mediate to put your mind in a different place while the piercing is going on? It might not be painless but it would certainly be less painful. Throughout history you see people walk on hot fire rocks and across beds of nails... why couldn't we block out pain for a short time? I think it would be possible :)
that sounds like a great idea and although it's true you can't change your DNA I do think it's possible maybe by using energy manipulation to disturb your senses because last night I was in a deep state of meditation ( which it's when your body goes numb) and I did something wrong when I was done so when I woke up I still felt numb especially my mouth haha just saying it might not be so impossible with the right set of mind
It wouldn't be changing your DNA at all. Pain-threshold is all in your mind.
Honestly, how many times have you seen a kid get hurt and they act like it's nothing until they see the wound? Or their booboo gets instantly fixed and stops hurting with a kiss or band-aid?
Meditation would be my answer. Whenever I get migraines (damn near every day) I meditate to ease the pain.
The type of meditation depends on the severity and symptoms.
-Pain that's just enough to be annoying: The pain is seen in my mind's eye as a bubble of light that slowly drifts away, little by little.
-Moderate pain: the pain is represented by insects that I rip away and crush.
-Severe pain: Breathe in green (positive) and breath out red (negative) -I usually see it as smoke, but to each his own. Whatever colors/substances work best for you.
-Nausea: Pull the sickness out ~to me looks like I'm pulling a giant wad of gum out of my stomach.
Another option, especially if the person is gullible or honestly believes in your magick - Use the placebo-effect.
Tell them a charm has been enchanted with a powerful spell to block the pain.
