Hey, I was just wondering. If magic is based off of our practice (which increases skill) would it be possible to cast a spell to render a person's power (skill/ability) useless. I personally don't believe in the Wiccan gods, but that of a different faith. And I personally believe that the spirits of ancestors and those connected to the god and goddess (of my faith) are the entities that grant us the help to cast successful spells, And I'm sure, but not completely certain, that that's how wiccans view their magick to come about, except it's directly from their gods.
And I've been thinking, after seeing this forum on what power truly is and how we connect to it. Is it possible to cast a spell to help sever the link between a witch and the spirits/gods. I'm asking as an old friend of mine is using magick for something really bad, as in vengeance, and as we all know, in pantheons, there are god and goddesses that like doing bad things to certain people, and It's the same with spirits.
Which scares me as, if the spirits helping her are that way, they'll be happier the more she does it, and might help her more by giving more energy towards the intentions she sets out to them. So my major question is,
Does it make sense to cast a spell to remove her ever-growing link to them?
Something like a binding ritual which will bind her intentions, stopping her from sending them out, so that they won't reach the spirits. Does that make sense? 'Cause if so, than I'll be able to alter a binding spell I have written to be more powerful, as in mentioning the cause, using more spiritual items for a better connection etc, etc.
I imagine it would be feasible, but why try to force yourself between a person and a god when you can simply bind the person? it sounds like it would be much easier. And it would be less likely to offend or gain the ire of the deity you are trying to sever from her follower.
In the end though, Why not just sit with your friend over a coffee (or tea) and talk about it? it might just take you asking some pointed questions and having a good listen.
You know, the usual. "have you thought about the possible consequences to your target? ...How about the consequences for yourself?" "Do you believe this will actually help the situation?" "How does this make you a better person then the one who wronged you?"
She and I started witchcraft together, She took it way more serious than I did in the beginning, trust me, she knows the consequences. And I think binding her won't work that well, as if I bind her from being able to give out energy through spell-work, she can still pray and ask for help, as rather than asking for guidance to create things and manifest, a prayer isn't spell-work, it's communication, and communication means a deal of some-sort. So destroying the link to the spiritual entities and gods of her following seems like a better choice, I mean Magickally unlinking, her beliefs her rights, she can worship and all, but I'm trying to stop her magickal desires reaching them in an energetic way, to stop her power from working he way she'll expect, if that sounds less horrifically unjust than what the first one might have sounded like
Hey then make your own intention stronger than hers by putting certainty into your magick/ belief that she will not be able to do it.Also what spirit 75 said it is much easier to talk to that person.
Fill her with positivity and love that she won't do it . Tell her that intentions like that never benefits anyone but rather empty out one self .
You most likely could block the person from their magic, yes, but the best course of action in this case would be to protect the victims and try to convince your friend not to take revenge on people. Severing a connection between a person and their spirits will probably make both of them quite angry at you, and you don't want to mess with angry spirits.
