Church bells

Something I've been thinking about but haven't quite worked out is the use of church bells.
When a bell is struck it sends forth an expanding circular wave of sound. That's the reason why it is used as a banishing of the air. And probably why we call it "Bel".
No matter the time zone or what the hour is, all church bells are struck at (roughly...) the same time. If you are somehow able to charge / connect with / attach something to that sound to deliver your spell, you could incorporate your own bell into it by striking it in the seconds leading up to the full hour when the church bells ring. And then let them carry it forward.

It's an unfinished thought at this point. Has anybody tried something like this?

I didn't but it's a good idea. If in case you're familiar with radionics some energy work can be done like that. ( connecting to or using an already existing energy pattern)

Very, interesting. Never really thought about the overlap of hourly Church bells and half-hourly timezones. Wow.

You might be on to something here.

I haven’t tried anything like this or thought about it before, but sounds like a solid concept!

Tbh, if you go back enough in history, a huge chunk of church tradition once had some sort of reasoning behind it. Whether dating back to Abrahamic magical roots and the like, or just mere superstition of the time. And considering the absurd amount of metal and resources those big medieval church bells must’ve taken to add to structures, there must have been a solid reason. Even if it was just to make sure peasants with no precise way of keeping time, knew when Sunday mass was starting.

When it comes to the practical side of using those church bells for spellwork, though, I’d say worth a shot! Could work out really well, for something with a desired result that’s far-reaching into the general area. It also makes me giggle to think of what the priests or preachers there would say, if they knew you were using their bells for the “Devil’s work”. Lmao

I was reading a bit yesterday about Tibetan singing bowls, as those essentially are the same (funny how in English the consonants of Bowl and Bell are - nearly - the same).
Then I saw a chart with the keys assigned to the chakras and thus the qualities each key represents (in that system) I am not a real musician so I can't tell which key a bell (or any other sound) is, so I searched if churchbells have a standard key.
Apparently not.

I even saw a website that used radionics to charge their singing bowls, maybe linked to the idea Brixgh mentioned.
