What the F*#@ Did You Just Say?

I had someone email me recently asking for advice on a spell because they were new to casting. They explained the steps that they had taken, and two things stuck out to me. The first was that the spell called for 3 drops of blood, but no mention on who it was meant to pay, feed, or be an offering to. Secondly it had an incantation, "Helistami Balu Stika". It didn't take me long to find the site that the person had found this spell on, What I did not find however, was any explanation of who or what it called upon. I also could find no real translation, other than Helistami may mean "to call" in Estonian. I am going to do a more detailed post on blood soon, so we will tackle that later. But I can't stress enough the importance of never saying anything out loud during a working, that you aren't aware of the full meaning or implications of. In a working, words are important, be they written or vocalized. Take care of everything that you say. You wouldn't want to have a Professor Raymond Knowby type incident would you?

Your post is clever, funny, and true -- just like Don Keefer's speech from the season finale of The Newsroom: "You know what it says on a box of chocolate pudding mix? 'Caution, pudding will get hot when heated.' Go to a hotel, you know what it says on the shower cap in the bathroom? 'Fits one head.'...Look at the box your iron came in. It says, 'Warning, do not iron clothes while wearing them.' Do we really have to slow down for these people?"

"Do we really have to slow down for these people?"

I believe answer is yes. What may be obvious to us isnt obvious to the average person who has trouble believing this stuff is real.
