Hey, just wondering if anyone used musical instruments to cast a circle. I just got a djembe, and I use it for meditation, but I don't know if I should use it to try and cast a circle and call the elements. Should I try it, or would it be disrespectful to play music while calling in the elements?
I see nothing wrong with using a musical instrument to cast the circle. And particularly using a drum seems apt. Drumming is well know as a method of raising energy and is in fact talked about in the "Eight Paths of Power".
I haven't used a musical instrument to cast a circle; however, in the Tradition in which I initially trained we commonly sang the circle up. One could, I believe, consider the human voice as a musical instrument.
