“By the power of Three by Three”
Have you come across or even used the incantation “by the power of three by three” in spell work or energy workings? Have you ever wondered what it means? The phrase usually goes:
The number 3 has been seen as a powerful number far back into humanity’s past. In Latin, a common phrase used was “omne trium perfectum”. It means everything that comes in threes is perfect, or, every set of three is complete.
In numerology, 3 is the number for magic and art of creation. Three by three (3×3) is nine. In numerology 9 represents creation unfolding into infinity. So this gives your incantation or intention a super charge!
