So I’m well aware that some pagans and more specifically “wiccans” or “freemasons” use the term “mote it be” to close out a prayer/rite… but is anyone aware of the deity invoked when this phrase is uttered aloud? Like… I’m sure you can say a hymn to cybele then end it with “so mote it be” since it’s like a different way of saying “amen”… but I feel under the insinuation or assumption that simply uttering the phrase itself holds a deity within the phrase. True?
It is a universal term with power behind the words .
Idk If this Hawaiian poem thing is true or not, but I’ve seen the theory a few times.
which entity would be giving it power?
I could never actually answer that , I doubt anyone can , the same way we can never know what powers rituals like The Star Ruby .
Look at it this way. Some prayers contain a shared “force”, but some sayings invoke a specific deity. I’m wondering is if saying “so mote ot be” could sound like an energetic mantra, but actually be a phrase centralized or representative to a specific god…
I don’t believe so , it might just be a kabbalistic formula , like “ AMEN” . If you vibrate these words , certain results can be seen , you could try reading The Key To The True Kabbalah by Franz Bardon, I’ve read the book and practiced it with successful results , you can find various explanations for what you’re asking there . The book explains what “ AMEN” means and what it causes . You can find explanations for what “ So Mote It Be means there also . Amongst other things related to words and formulae that lead to specific outcomes .
It may be a neutral/generic phrase such as one mentioned by an Italian author of magick: “This is what I want, what I can and what I command”; specifically in this one the entity is possibly the God self of the operator.
I Agree. Your conscious will is the entity that presides behind the phrase.
So mote it be = My will be done
