I recently started working with spells that are solely incantation and intention. By that I mean I will simply state my desire or a rhyme that fits my desire and power it with my intention.
This has always worked when I used it in the past to varying degrees, but I recently read something that has changed my incantations forever. It’s one word that you can add to any incantation and make it more powerful.
The only issue is that there is controversy to using this word in this way, because it is an ancient word and therefore the “true” meaning and original purpose isn’t known. But I believe that the meaning you choose is the meaning the word will hold.
So what is the word?
Why I am reclaiming abracadabra
Even though this word is seen as merely a joke nowadays, something with no meaning and only in use by stage magicians, abracadabra is an ancient word that has been used in magick since well before the first written mention of the word.
The first recorded use of the word was in a Latin medical poem, De Medicina Praecepta, by Roman physician Quintus Serenus Sammonicus. That poem is from the second century AD.
Serenus Sammonicus claimed that abracadabra ought to be printed on paper as a trianglular formula and worn about the neck to drive sickness out of the body through the funnel of the triangle.

But it’s likely this word is considerably older than that first mention. Maybe it’s from an Aramaic phrase, or from Chaldean or the Basilidians.
For my spell work, I have chosen the Aramaic phrase’s meaning. In Aramaic, avra kehdabra means “I will create as I speak“. There is some serious power in that phrase, people.
So when I am for instance trying to manifest wealth, I will say “Abracadabra, I have all the wealth I desire” or something similar.
This word used in this way is only helpful when you are trying to create something, rather than destroy something. You can’t use it to lose weight, but you can use it to become healthier. You can’t use it to banish someone, but you can use it to draw in a new friend or lover.
Does saying abracadabra work?
It sure does! I have seen a real change in the power of my simplest spells, and soon I will be adding this word into a larger spell that isn’t just an incantation as well.
I want to reclaim this word from stage magicians and put it back where it belongs: in the hands of witches and healers. Care to join me?
By the way, I learned all about Abracadabra as a spell intensifier when I was doing research on esoteric topics.
