Hey all! In the last week I was researching a lot of stuff and I came to find 2 differing perspectives on chants/incantations in ritual work. I’ve seen these two when I started out too, but didn’t really think much of them - I tried to approach things and experiment most of the time.
Don’t look up the meaning/translation for the chants you’re using. I’ve seen this mostly in chaos magick, where they say that this will bypass the psychic filter and it will be easier to “inseminate the subconscious with your will”.
Understand both the ritual and the meaning of your chants fully, because “then it will work”.
I might have misunderstood these 2 perspectives, maybe not… but what do you guys think? Is it something that you have to find out for yourself, or is there some kind of consensus on them?
