[General] How does casting spells actually work in most media? What is the source of magic?

2021.12.01 02:31 joelcampos5 [General] How does casting spells actually work in most media? What is the source of magic?

To elaborate in that ambiguous question:
In many depictions of witches/wizards, these have to cast a spell/charm/curse in order to perform magic, but, where where does its “power” comes from?
I want to exclude Harry Potter from this as it is state that wizards are born magical and performing a spell is just a way to easily “express their power” (thats the best way I can explain it) so wizards/witches magic come from themselves. Just like there are magical creatures and parts of these are used to make wands. (Please anyone correct me if im wrong about this)
But what about in media where wizards/witches are just humans who learn magic. If magic source doesnt come from themselves, where does it come from?
When this kind of witches go and cast “expelliarmus!”(im sorry imma use HP spells since I cant think of any form anywhere else) what really happens? Was “expelliarmus” defined to disarm your oponent? And if so, who did it? Whats the source? Is there an higher entity that hears greg scream “expelliarmus!” and says “oh shit I better disarm that other mf!” And greg sees it as magic?
If spells are not really “defined” somewhere, how do they actually work? Or is it a case of “well thats magic, no logic or explanation, thats why is magic”?
I remember I believe it was in Supernatural the explanation was that witches’ powers came from demons so calling spells would perform magic as an extension from that demon’s power.
As another example, in FMA (lets be honest here Alchemy/Transmutations in FMA is just magic based by scientific rules), Alchemits use alchemic circles as “furmulas” to use natural energy and perform transmutations. So the magic here comes from nature an using the circle is like casting an spell.
So whats your take? Or do you know any media where is it defined how chanting spells works and/or where does the magic comes from?

2021.12.01 02:31 OtakuHannah I’m starting to think I have BPD.

Ever since I’ve broken up with my ex which was in September of 2019 my mental health has just spiraled out of control. I didn’t know what BPD was until I looked up how I was feeling which was ‘fear of abandonment’ and it popped up. I’ve done my research on it and I swear I fit most of the criteria for it. My mental health was really bad Sept 2019-Early 2020. It was at its absolute in the middle of 2021 when I met this guy. I got really bad anxiety and I thought he was gonna leave me 24/7. I’m gonna try to see a psychiatrist soon because I’ve been putting it off for so long. I did see a therapist in early 2020 but because of Covid I had to stop seeing them and didn’t go back. Any advice would help!

Question for people with "innies" -- when(if) you shave your downstairs, do you feel like it looks disgustingly childlike? I'm trying to figure out if this is something related to dysphoria or just a universal experience
