This is a crazy question. I just bought myself a ukulele. It brings me a lot of joy when I deal with the negativity in my life. That alone is enough, bt I thought of something more. Would be wise to maybe enchant the instrument or charge it with some sort of intent or purpose? If so, would it be wiser to charge the strings to do so, and once my goal is accomplished, remove the strings, enchant a new set, and continue to play for ritualistic purposes? Or would it be better to carve out my own instrument?

I'm not sure if it would be possible, but it sounds like a neat idea to me. Wanted to know what you guys thought.

Enchant away! But I would shy away of the making your own instrument unless your skills in both realms are quite amazing... That's not a path to tread for the most part... at least, unless you want to tempt a lame fate.

Strangely enough, I have no clue ho to incorporate this in ritual. It's an odd idea that I just thought of.

Not sure where to start.

Then its best not to. Rituals are rarely made better by whimsically adding "cool stuff" to them. If you have a particular spell that would necessitate or in some way benefit from a enchanted instrument then analyze exactly makes it necessary, and use magick to enhance that aspect. Otherwise, you just wast time and energy trying to shoehorn in something that does not really fit.

You asked about how wise it would be to enchant the instrument but did not say why you thought it would help or even in what way it could. Before you start on the particulars of enchanting have a purpose in mind. Often once you look at the intended purpose you find magick is not needed. For example, you use the ukulele to bring you happiness. Fair enough, do you need a spell to do that? You already have that.


--------------------
Cosmic consciousness is devoid of diversity; yet the universe of diversity exists in notion....
We contemplate that reality in which everything exists, to which everything belongs,
from which everything has emerged, which is the cause of everything and which is everything....
The light of [this] self-knowledge alone illumines all experiences. It shines by its own light.
This inner light appears to be outside and to illumine external objects.

-Sage Vasishtha

Well, I thought it was fairly obvious that I should never do anything without an intended purpose.
