Okay, so this is sort of a question. What i want to know is why are some people really drawn to magic/k while others more likely chose to accept it as farce whie some just dont care.
Reson being is that today i was thinking bck to what got me interested in magick in the first place. And yes, it was television, but it was a bit different than most people i think who get into it by TV. I wasnt into flying or invisibilty (well the see through person kind at least, not just going un-noitced more). When i was maybe 6 or 7, my mom was watching an old movie called "Skeleton Key."
Now i dont remember the movie much or what i was like at the time, but i do remember the movie got me really sparked. The thing i was drawn to most was the idea of Circles. Now i dont actually remember if or where in the movie had a circle, but i know that i got in a lot of trouble at home because after the movie hyped me i drew a circle with letters around it instead of runes, and i remember some sybols as well. Inside it i put a person, just a general figure i knew i wanted to make it like more of an instruction sheet if you understand that, not a circle to work with. more of a diagram. anyway i remember it was a circle, it had the letters, and in the cardinal points i also had things. all i remember is a feather... maybe in the east and a bowl somewhere too...
Like i said i got in a lot of trouble for it but i've never forgotten drawing it. it was like my first real step into looking at crafts. i more got into chi and the such after because my parents are strict penecostals so magic is pretty bad to them... not something i totally agree on if at all. Anyway, since then i just have an extreme fascination with circles. i want to learn different kinds and how and why to cast them.
Another thing i remember was that in the movie a girl made a line of salt i think to keep some evil thing out, i later learned that salt is to some a purifing agent, so i guess that bit was a little true... i used to walk around with salt a lot after that, as a good luck charm in a bag.
Anyway, memory aside, i want to know why some people are just more attracted to things than others? is it some kind of call or just the normal psychology of attraction? Thanks for anything.
