Passion Gives Power, But How to Find the Truth of It?

Author: Cynthia

WITCHVOX - It is the building up of emotion--it is passion that gives power to magickal workings. Since magick is concerned with the Will directing emotion, it is important for the Witch to get in touch with the emotions that serve as the raw power of her Craft and to be able to focus on those particular emotions that pertain to the Working at hand.

...

There are several acting techniques for this that are useful for the Witch. After all, dramatic art is a communication of a truth, usually of a truth of powerful emotion. Through the actor’s art we can reliably empower our Workings with the power of passion’s truth.

One acting technique, that Method acting students are warned to use only as a rehearsal technique, is to call up the emotion one experienced in the past. That is, you remember a time when you felt the emotion that is the same as needed for the scene you are playing. As you do your scene, you remember in detail the past event. This technique works astonishingly well, but it has two problems. Since the emotion is based on a problem you had in real life, you are apt to be under its sway for about a week or so.

...

The next acting technique useful to Witches to build power is to be “completely in the moment.” This means that you have focused your concentration so well on what you are doing that the scene is very, very real to you, and the emotion rises naturally as it would in a mundane setting. This is the best way as it is the truest, but getting to that point of focus requires a great deal of emotional self-trust.

The most powerful way of finding the emotion that is most directly related to a Working is to learn concentrate on what the words you say actually mean and how different inflections can give those words different meaning. This goes hand in hand with carefully listening to how words are said gives the words different shades of meaning. The following exercise will help you to develop this intensely focused type of communicating.

...

The energy becomes transmuted because of another principle in acting: certain movements and vocalizations in and of themselves create certain emotion reactions. Therefore the actions and words of your normal ritual have a different emotional thrust than the emotion that is hindering or distracting you. By focusing your attention on doing the ritual actions precisely, the ritual actions and words will create an emotion in you.

Take your time to concentrate on every ritual action you make to see how the action makes you feel. What you feel from the ritual actions will be bolstered by the emotion you brought in from the mundane world, but your mundane feelings will be changed by your ritual actions.

...

Take time to see how you feel when you stand in those positions and when you make those gestures. These gestures have the power to change your feelings. Take the time you need to stand in the Goddess position, to lower your athame into the salt, to walk the Circle and find out how these movements make you feel.

Movement, sound, and language are each in themselves forms of communication, and so when you move a certain way, when you sound a certain way, and when you say certain things that are all reflective of a specific emotional state they will imbue you yourself with the emotions that they reflect. When you walk, speak, inflect your voice, and breathe in honest communication, you will find the emotions of the deity rising within you.
