To Know, To Will, To Dare and To Keep Silent

By Estelle Daniels

This phrase contains the successful ingredients for a good spell. It is borrowed from Ceremonial Magick. But what does it mean?

To Know – means to know what you are doing, intellectually and practically. To have knowledge of spellwork, magick, what may work best in your situation, what you are able to handle, are comfortable with, how to execute what you want. Most importantly, to know what you want to accomplish. The more concise you can make your statement of purpose, the better and more effective your spell will be. To gain world peace, is a noble goal, but one which is beyond the scope of most practitioners. To keep drug pushers off my block, is a more realistic goal which can be accomplished. Avoid “not” or “can’t”. Rather than “a workplace which is not abusive and harassing”, try “a workplace which is healthy, pleasant and happy.” You have to filter all spells through your younger self, which has the attention span and intellect of a three-year-old. Often the words not or can’t get filtered out, and a spell can backfire because the message received was workplace, abusive and harassing. Keep books on spells as idea books, read through them and adapt. 75% of the work in a spell comes before you start putting up the circle. Research and assembly of materials take up most of the time. If it’s worth doing a spell, it’s worth putting in the time to do it right. Good preparation is certainly part of To Know.
