Since magic has been demonized by religious leaders and people were threatened with their lives for even mentioning the word, it has become difficult to trace magic through a family’s bloodline. So how does one know if magic is inherited?
Many magic practitioners have testified that they knew their mother or grandmother worked with magic so their stories make it more understandable that magic is inherited. But does every child inherit magic? Does it skip a child? This can be a confusing topic for children who see you working magic and wish to do the same but just don’t “feel it”.
In all my years practicing my gifts and speaking with others who have varying gifts, I have come to the conclusion that we each have different magical gifts. I don’t think there’s any need to tell a child they may not have inherited magic. Magic can evolve in a person at different times in life. Some can experience a powerful manifestation while others sense a trickling-in kind of evolution of magic.
There have been times when my magic felt incredibly strong and it was usually during times when we were going through great turmoil of some kind. My dreams became more intense and more symbolic, my intuitive sensory field became highly sensitive, and my awareness hit peaks where I noticed things others didn’t. At those same times, two of my children began sensing their intuition speaking to them in ways they’d never experienced before. Now those same two children are adults and no longer living at home, but we can all sense shifts in the Universe in ways that are definitely more than mere coincidence.
I’ve also had a very intriguing experience that has caused me to believe, even more than before, that magic is inherited. My father had another daughter in his second marriage. Due to unfortunate circumstances with her mother, she was kept from us after the divorce. I didn’t see her again until she was 16 years old. I was able to visit with her briefly after our grandmother died and then didn’t get to connect again until many years later. Thanks to Facebook’s algorithm, I was able to find her! By this time I was already in my forties. As we got to know each other, we were practically spooked about how much we have in common. We both worked with herbs and essential oils, both had empathic gifts that are quite similar, both worked with crystals, we even both wore the same style of clothing, are artists, and photographers! I know those last similarities aren’t exactly “magical”, but the fact that we had so much in common sure was! It was as if we grew up together.
There doesn’t seem to be much magic on either of our mother’s sides so we assume it came from our father’s side. As I have meditated and called upon my earliest memories of our father I do recall times when he showed me his interest in stage magic and fantasy magic. We went camping once and he hand created pirate maps and buried treasures at the camp ground for us to go hunting for. He sure knew how to create magic for me. Sadly, he passed away when I was 19 years old so I cannot ask him about these things. However, my step-mother did inform me that our grandmother read tea leaves!
What about you? Do you think magic is inherited?
