Sing a Song for a Spell

In Irish mythology magic is music and everything on earth and in the universe is a song. Music is powerful and cathartic. Most of us can’t live (happily) without it. Taliesin sang to create his magic, Dagda had his magic harp, the sirens had their songs, the Norse had their galdrar, and Robert Johnson had the blues.

You may not play an instrument (or maybe you play a mean ukulele and are now offended), but you have a voice! Sing in the shower, in your car, when you’re cooking, or during ritual. It’s not silly or cheesy, it’s practical. Singing weaves fate in harmony with your desires. You can sing for all the magic and mischief you get into — whether its made up on the spot, pop songs, heavy metal, pagan music, or the traditional charms and folk songs of the Outer Hebrides — sing it for your spells and prayers and rituals. It’s not for everyone and it may not work for everyone, but, if you’re the type of magician who gets goosebumps or hot flashes when singing magic, this is definitely for you.
