I personally do not use the Bible, but live in an area where many magic folk are actually Xtian, so I imagine they use it as a magical tool without realizing.

I do know of one woman in particular who "Bible dipped", or use the Bible as a form of divination. She would connect with God and ask for guidance, then fling the book open and put her finger on a random spot on the page with her eyes closed. When she opened them, she would take whatever paragraph her finger landed on as her answer.

"Hey Bible, what will my day hold for me?"

"The Lord answered, 'Bring me a heifer three years old, a she-goat, three years old, a ram three years old, a turtle dove and a young pigeon.'"

That'd be one hell of a parade to watch walking into a church now-a-days.

I grew up Catholic, which is highly mystical..I use biblical magic all the time....although, it is more part of my hoodoo practice. Want the nastiest curse you've ever seen? Psalm 109. You have no idea what I've done with that verse, some tequila, and assorted...things.

"The truth about the world, he said, is that anything is possible. Had you not seen it from birth and thereby bled it of its strangeness it would appear to you for what it is, a hat trick in a medicine show, a fevered dream, a trance bepopulate with chimeras having neither analogue nor precedent, an itinerant carnival, a migratory tentshow whose ultimate destination after many a pitch in many a mudded field is unspeakable and calamitous beyond reckoning." - Cormac McCarthy

I'm all ears! :twisted_witch: LOL
And holy shit- remind me not to piss you off!! What's NOT included in that psalm for cursing?!! So do you use the Catholic bible then for your Hoodoo?

That's also another thing I forgot about getting over my adversion to using the bible in magic- I have so much of it fucking memorized. Never thought THAT would the benefit I got out of going to church growing up :rofl:
