LET ME 'SPELL' IT OUT FOR YOU, Pt. II

"There is talk that is like stabbings of a sword, Yet the tongue of the wise is healing." (Proverbs 12:18 - CLV)

In Part I we discussed the word "spell", and how it possibly has a dual meaning as in "Let me SPELL it out for you" and "The witch cast a SPELL on him..."...words create reality, which may be why we call the composition of letters to form an idea "spelling"...words spoken into the heart of an individual by another person, especially by a person with whom that individual has an emotional bond or connection definitely creates some dimension of reality in and for that person...we also discussed the word "INCANTATION", which is simply defined as a series of words used to make something magic happen, or a use of SPELLS or verbal charms spoken or sung as a part of a ritual of magic...in this context it is possible to believe that some people are living under the "SPELL" of someone else's "INCANTATION" over them, and are possibly living out the illusion of someone else's reality...

Life as hypnosis...the power of suggestion...

In a previous post we talked about the phrase “Abracadabra”, which may derive from an Aramaic phrase meaning “I create as I speak”...

This etymology is rather dubious, however, as אברא כדברא in Aramaic is more reasonably translated "I create like the word"... the second lexeme* in this supposedly Aramaic phrase must be a noun given the presence of the definite article on the end of the word (it cannot be an infinitive construct, as the infinitive cannot take the definite article)...

Regardless, this phrase would actually be pronounced "ebra kidbara", which is clearly different from abracadabra...however, Semitic languages like Aramiac are not always hard and fast with the assignment of vowels, and abracadabra is similar enough to ebra kidebra, given the tendency of vowels to shift...

In the Hebrew language, the phrase translates more accurately as "it came to pass as it was spoken"...

In Genesis we see that the Elohim (literally translated "the gods", plural) spoke the Universe into existence...later in Genesis, as Abraham developed and promoted the idea of monotheism, we begin to see "God" referred to less and less as "them", and almost completely as "Him"...we see the concept used again when David said, "You have made them (people) a little lower than the Elohim (translated into English as "angels")...but in the opening verses of the Bible, it is clearly "them", as in "Let US create people in OUR image"...in the Khaboris Manuscript (Aramaic), Jesus refers to God as "Alaha" , which is a derivative of Elohim (also spelled Alueim)...Muslims use the very same word as "Allah"...(everything is connected to everything)...

The bottom line of all this as it relates to "SPELLS", is that on some level we are continuing to create ourselves and even one another by the words we speak to ourselves, and to those with whom we have relationship...

In any case, the language that we use to communicate with one another is very much like a knife, which is why the above Proverb which references "talk that is like stabbings of a sword" deeply resonates with me...in the hands of a skilled and careful surgeon, the sharp blade of a knife can work to do great good, and can even save lives...but that very same sharp knife in the hands of an ignorant or careless person can be used to do great harm, and can even become a murder weapon..."Death AND life are in the power of the tongue", and there are people all over this world who are being repeatedly or constantly "stabbed" in their souls by words that were spoken over them in their youth, or during a time of great vulnerability...


Mother Teresa said that kind words can be short and easy to speak but their echoes are endless...that's exactly what a "SPELL" is...a word or phrase that continues to echo in the mind of the hearer, and we know that Paul said that "faith comes by hearing"...whatever you continue to hear inside your own head ultimately becomes the source of what you believe...

"A healing tongue is a tree of life, Yet words of subversion in it are a breaking of the spirit."
(Proverbs 15:4 - CLV)

REMEMBER...you have the power over your own life, over your own thoughts, to believe what you want to believe about yourself...the TREE OF LIFE in your own healing tongue can and will overpower every judgment that has been pronounced over you through the paradigm of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil...if words or INCANTATIONS of subversion have broken your spirit, you can save yourself by simply knowing and speaking the truth about yourself that makes you free...

TRUTH ALWAYS WINS!

"But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong." (Isaiah 54:17 - AMP)
