Alright people have been saying magic is a practice, and can't turn you or make you have magical powers. I understand them, but I still believe in mermaids, vampires, werewolves, ect. Well I really would like a spell to control water. Is there a spell like that? I always wanted to become a mermaid, I believed never worked though. I positively believe in controlling elements. Is there a spell that people have tried and it worked for controlling the element of water.
There are no possible way to become a mermaid, you have the right to believe in what you wanna believe in but there are biological and logical reasons why becoming a mermaid doesn't work.
Our human body can't survive inside water so long and we would freeze to death our bodies aren't like fishes etc. Even though mermaids have 50% fish body doesn't mean it is still possible to survive under water.
Mermaids seem to being able to breath under water which we can't.
We can't choose what body parts we want to have and don't want to have every organ we have has a reason for being there.
Mermaids can't reproduce so how in earth would you even be born?
There is no spell that can make you become a mermaid because there is no logical way to suddenly wake up with 50% fish body, if you think after it sounds pretty pathethic.
How will you pee etc. Fish are able to do it because of gills which we don't have.
There is no logical sense how a mermaid could be real.
Controlling water? No not like you can control where the water shall go by your mind and making a tsunami by just using your eyes to look at the water.
We all have the elements but we all have a specific element that we feel more attracted (drawn) to and in your case you're more drawn to water but instead of thinking like that, you can become a sea witch which means you'd work more with the element water and sea witches are also known by working with the Gods and Goddesses of water, performing rituals near a sea/ocean, taking energy from the moon, collecting different types of water and yeah you name it.
But is there such thing, as using energy to move or produce the elements? I know you can't mess with nature, but shaping water that could or can't be possible. And say I collect moon water, what do I do after that?
Working with the elements in magic is more symbolic than anything else. The elements are used to represent certain qualities, also called the four humors to use such an archaic term: hot, cold, dry, and wet. These things are used very broadly to encompass certain energetic or emotional states of being.
These are not meant to be taken literally, though you will often find physical representations of the elements present in many people's workings.
Some traditions use the elements differently, and of course some cultures have differing sets of elements and their qualities.
But it all comes down to symbolic rather than literal usage.
Of course, that should keep in mind that sometimes a literal representation of an element may be used to do something representative of its symbolic counterpart, such as using a lit candle to burn a paper with a petition written on it, so help it ascend to the astral.
I think that hollywood has given too many people the idea that things like this can be done with the use of magic. I also have seen, and experienced things that if talked about, because of hollywood, would get some people put in the state mental hospital for delusions of grandure, known that as a fact. In the end it is all in perspective. What is real to one is ficticious to another. I do agree with Prsona in that we are born the way we are, and can not physically change our parts to suit our wants, would if I could. i have had thoughts of becoming anything other than what I was or any where than I was at, for that time. I believe that was how I learned to astral project! In this reality ie; plane of existience it is not possible, however in the other planes of existience through astral projection with training you can be anything you want to be! Maybe you should think more of mastering Astral projection first, then play with who you can be while on another plane of existience?
