نظرية أمريكية جميلة جدًّا استوقفتني كثيرًا !!

وهي كالتالي :

If : إذا
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

are equal to :

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26

إذا أعطي كل حرف في اللغة وزنًا بناءً على ترتيبه الأبجدي، مثلًا أول حرف هو A ووزنه يساوي 1 وآخر حرف Z ووزنه يساوي 26 ..

فإن :

🔸العمل الجاد 🔸

( H+A+R+D+W+O+R+K ) =

8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11= 98%

🔸 المعرفة 🔸
( K+N+O+W+L+E+D+G+E ) =

11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5= 96%

🔸الحب 🔸
( L+O+V+E ) =

12+15+22+5 = 54%

🔸الحظ 🔸
( L+U+C+K ) :

12+21+3+11 = 47%

💡لا شيء مما سبق سوف يعطيك نتيجة 100% التي تريد 😊

إذا هل هي ، ،

🔸النقود 🔸؟؟؟

💡 طبعاً لا !!!

( M+O+N+E+Y )=

13+15+14+5+25=72%

🔸القيادة 🔸؟

💡أيضا لا !!

( L+E+A+D+E+R+S+H+I+P ) =

12+5+1+4+5+
18+19+8+9+16= 97%

💡لكل مشكلة حل ، فقط ربما إذا غيرنا سلوكنا وأسلوبنا في التعامل ..

🔸السلوك 🔸 “ATTITUDE”

( A+T+T+I+T+U+D+E ) =

1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

✨ إذاً :-

💡إذا غيرنا سلوكنا تجاه الحياة ،
سوف نحدث تغير حقيقي
في حياتنا بإذن الله ..

Music Spells

So I was thinking about all the different ways music could be used in spell writing.. and coming up with meaningful correspondences is fun but what if it was something more formulaic? Like something along the lines of sigil making.

A spell could be as simple as a motif. It doesn’t have to be a full piece with complicated details. It could be just a few notes you would hum to yourself because they have meaning to you and they resonate a certain energy with you.

One idea I have is corresponding pitches to the letters of the alphabet.
There are 12 pitches in an octave, so the letters would be divided into 12 groups. For example,
(0) A, M, Y
(1) B, N, Z
(2) C, O
(3) D, P
(4) E, Q
(5) F, R
(6) G, S
(7) H, T
(8) I, U
(9) J, V
(10/t) K, W
(11/e) L, X
or if you would like to stick to a specific scale (let’s use an arbitrary major scale for this example),
(Do) A, H, O, V
(Re) B, I, P, W
(Mi) C, J, Q, X
(Fa) D, K, R, Y
(Sol) E, L, S, Z
(La) F, M, T
(Ti) G, N, U
For these examples I grouped the letters by having the letters follow the notes alphabetically, and then repeat notes when they ran out. But there are many other ways you could group them, for example, you could divide the alphabet by 12 pitches, and have the first 3 letters be pitch 0, the next 3 pitch 1, etc.

So for the actual spell!
This would be similar to sigils in the sense that you can write a sentence, respresenting your intent, and then using the formula, turn those into pitches!

For example, the phrase “I am safe” would be “8 0 0 6 0 5 4” using the first method, or “Re Do La Sol Do La Sol” using the second.
One you have the pitches you can be creative, by adding rhythms (maybe build phrases based on word or sentence lengths?), harmonies, articulation (maybe accents on capital letters?), etc.

I hope this gives peoples some ideas!

(Also if it’s just for small motifs like this, I am willing to do spell requests! And I can have them played or sung in whatever instrument you like!)
