    Magic After Giving Blood

    I gave blood today, and while I was bored and surrounded by blood, I found myself wondering how the change in your blood would affect its magical properties, since different components regenerate at different rates.

    Since I'm too exhausted to leave my room today, does anyone want to over-analyze this with me? I was also curious about the magical effects of losing such a big part of yourself and your energy. But I got breathless and light-headed crawling into bed, so there's my answer.

    *Disclaimer: This is a purely hypothetical discussion. I am not endorsing any actual doing of things*

    I don't think that blood, when viewed as its chemical components and various cells, is inherently magical--basically, the chemical and cellular difference in your blood dies bit affect its magical capacity. How its removal affects your energy levels and ability to do magic (or anything energetic, for that matter), however, is something else.
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    I actually looked a little deeper, and the most anyone has ever recommended using seems to be four to six drops, which is such a small amount that any decrease in a specific component is likely negligible, since you weren't using that much to begin with.
