That was my sentiment exactly. I can only call a lover a pet name so much, that you begin to have doubts as to the intentions of the spirit if it won’t willingly share it’s name.
Of course upon further research I discovered the reason for their reluctance- names have power.
In our society, it’s little more than a way to self indentify.
In theirs, there is much more to it than that. I hear knowing a spirits name gives you some degree of power or control over the spirit.
They keep their names secret because some malevolent individuals would foolishly try to dominate them, but I believe the universe has a way of punishing these malicious individuals.
All my intentions with magic are pure of heart. I want to learn of creation and how to heal, and the only baneful magick I’d be interested in learning would be purely for defense. I have to remember to bite my tongue when I see certain subjects on this site, because everyone is free to pursue magick as they desire, but I’m a firm believer in Karma.
