Choosing a language!
By:
Post # 1

Hello there!
I'm sure some of you are bilingual, like me. If so, do you find yourself using one language more often in your magickalworkings? I'm from Sweden, so swedishis what grew up with, but since all books, articles spell-examples etc. I read are in englishit kinda feels natural to do my magick in english. But at the same time, I do have a larger vocabulary in swedish... I guess the easy answetis tojust mix the two as I please, but I'm curious of how other bilingual (or multilingual) people deal with this! :)

I actually speak 2 languages fluently and another one on the go.

For me I go with the one that I feel most connected to, which would be English ( not my native language ). It's about how comfortable you feel, really. There is no right nor wrong in this area.

For ritual work, I use an old Germanic dialect that was taught to me when I was young. They are simple sentences but fit well because they are traditional. For other purposes, English is my go to language.
Just my opinion, I think there is some importance to language choice in working with deities. Gross mismatches like Latin and Norse Gods probably would be counterproductive since the two cultures clash historically.

The only other language I could "speak" (besides my native English) is Spanish, but I would like to learn another language. I'm thinking Gaelic, since I'm leaning toward a Celtic path.

I'm only fluent in English and French, and I don't feel there's a lot of power in my French words so I usually end up speaking English in spell work.

But depending on what I'm doing I'll speak a little bit of Arabic! I'm not at all fluent in it but I've picked up a bit with my family, and the deities I work with appreciate it when I do, or if I learn how to say something for them.
