What To Do in Case of Psychic Attack or of Being the Victim of Malevolent Spell

Being a relatively visible public Witch, I get plenty of requests for spells, which I politely decline to do. I tell people two things: One is that it's best to create one's own spells rather than have someone else cast them. The other is a caution against performing any magic that would interfere with the free will of another. The exception to that would be a binding of someone else, making them unable to do further harm.

Today, through the agency of the Marin Interfaith Street Chaplaincy of all places, I received this request:
could you get to O[...] [in] contact with a Wikkin [sic] Practitioner who may be able to reverse, break, heal from witchcraft spells. O[...] has a cousin who has a girlfriend from Morocco (speak English) who believes she has had a witchcraft spell put on her.
This has inspired me to publish this brief blog in response to this query and any similar queries that may come my way (or yours) in the future.

If you believe someone has put a negative spell on you (usually called a hex), here are a few things you can do to protect yourself, and possibly reverse the spell.

First, purify your person. Take a shower, or better yet, soak for a while in hot water containing sea salt, bath salts, or Epsom salts. Allow the salt and water to neutralize any negativity within yourself; think of this as you soak. Let any contamination be washed away with the water spiraling down the drain, out of your house and out of your life. Drink lots of water to wash out your insides. Wash your hair, brush your teeth, put on clean clothes. You may also wish to drink mint tea or another tea that you find refreshing.

Second, purify your dwelling. Dust, sweep, vacuum, tidy up, polish. Air out the rooms. Wash the windows with a mild solution of vinegar and water. This allows purifying sunlight and moonlight to illuminate the room as well as making the glass more reflective to deflect unwanted energies.[1]

Circulate through the rooms where you live with sage or other purifying incense, making sure to fumigate everywhere -- stairways, closets, underneath stairways, basement, attic, garage if attached. If your dwelling is one that you can circumnavigate, you may wish to walk all around the outside of the building wafting this smoke.

Then mix salt and water and sprinkle it around the house. As with the incense, do this around the outside of the home, too, if you can. Be sure to cense and sprinkle all openings to the outside -- doors and windows, of course, but also skylights, electrical outlets, heating vents, chimneys, ventilator hoods, toilets, and sink, tub and shower drains. Also do this to mirrors.

While you're doing these things, speak the words, "With Earth and Water I purify this space," and "with Fire and Air I consecrate this space," because that's exactly what you're doing.[2]

Third, ward your space. If you're the witchy sort, trace a protective pentacle with the salt water on all doors, windows and mirrors. Rosemary grows in abundance where I live, so I like to use a sprig of it to sprinkle the salt water. Then I like to leave rosemary sprigs on all the window sills.

When you've done all these things, take a step back, be very quiet, look around, listen and note how different your space feels to you now.

You may also wish to perform these acts at other places where you spend a lot of time, such as work, if you can.

One last thing you may want to do, although it's not as easy and practical as the rest. You may wish to hang little mirrors in the windows or on the outside of the building to reflect away negativity. The mirrors aren't really necessary; they're just extra insurance, if you will. You should be fine just doing the other things I've recommended.

Now envision yourself within a bubble. Project this bubble around you and around your home. Nothing can pass through the membrane that has not been invited by you. Anything unwelcome bounces off the bubble. Build a strong image of this bubble in your mind. If you have a small object, maybe a clear quartz crystal or a piece of rosemary, that reminds you of this visualization, carry it in your pocket or keep it someplace handy. You can't be expected to hold this image in your consciousness all the time. But if you have this object, then at times when the image has faded and you feel you need to reinforce your working, take it out and look at it and touch it to reawaken your sense of your protective bubble.

As with all magic spells, you needn't stick with the formula offered here. If other ingredients call to you or other actions spring from you, trust your intuition and go with them.

These are my recommendations. For another approach, here's a Lemon Uncrossing Spell (to break a curse). I have never tried this so I can offer no assurance of its efficacy.

[1] For a super-duper heavy cleansing of a home, say if you're just moving in after someone else has been living there, and if you have the time, get some dragon's blood incense and burn it on a piece of charcoal in a container left in the bathtub or shower. As soon as you light it, leave and let it fumigate the entire house. You don't want to breathe much of this stuff. Then return a few hours later and open all the windows to let out the dragon's blood fumes.

[2] Some additional things you can do to cleanse a new or dirty home: Walk throughout the rooms with noisemakers, rattles, a drum to frighten off unwanted spirits. Do this before censing and sprinkling. After censing and sprinkling, ring a little bell at the windows and mirrors.

Thank you for this post and the re-cap of the Muses, Macha! It was lovely seeing you and meeting Corby; witnessing his playfulness, wit and talent...sigh. Love, Willow

I do strongly suggest that people not asperge/sprinkle -electrical devices-. The way around this is to gently wet the finger and wipe it UNDER the outlet. That way, if moisture creeps, it can't creep into a live socket.

Beyond that, this is a pretty good primer for bucking badness.

Excellent post. Thank you for the info. :)

Macha--When i did the protection spell many years ago, i was living in an apartment building and couldn't walk around just my building. So i walked around the whole block three times with the incense. The effect was impressive: A man had been living across the street for a year or so, who did not fit into the quiet Noe Valley, San Francisco, neighborhood. He was bigotted and obnoxious; e.g., one night he got really drunk and started shouting about being forced to live in a neighborhood full of "kikes and dykes," and firing off a pistol. At the next full moon after i did the spell, he moved out.
P.S.: The glitsh may be in my computer system, but when i clicked on the envelope, typed in my message on the screen that came up there and then tried to enter the characters for verification, i couldn't get them to display.

Most if not all people calling them selves paranormal experts or magicians are fake or fraud or have no idea about the whole thing wich create lots of misconception and misunderstanding to the whole paranormal issue .
Sorcery or magic is a form of work and rituals based in the use of spiritual entities like demons with alleged supernatural powers in order to have (inflect) an impact on human life in bad way generally and to reach this power or level you need first to perform glorification rituals of demonic entities where you can be under danger and you need to give up your faith (in case you have one)
You cant reach higher levels and be served without doing evil or satanic rituals any thing else is nonsens and fairy tales,this is how real effective magic works,still you need to do lots of things we will not talk about it now.
There are large number of realistic experiences that talk about the impact of magic on health, money, and emotional relations but for sure not in the USA because i dont thing in the USA there is one real genuine magician or real spiritual expert.
Real spiritual magic have secrets and codes and rituals the normal ordinary human will not understand it even if he read it all it is like puzzle but it contain the demon name and the target and the serving contract numbers, like for example A group of squares and magical concordions and a set of numbers and alphabets and numbers and letters which are given in the magic paper to bring magic effect on the targeted person
And this is the main elements in the whole spiritual and magic work and concept like
Planets, letters, numbers, elements of matter, body mixtures , letters and their secrets.
The numbers have secrets connected to the demonic world, and the letters have effects on them, and the upper demonic world extends the underworld.
The world of the throne extends the world of the chair (chair of God).
Saturn - The Saturn Galaxy Extends the Astronomy of the Moon - The Moon Fluorescence Extends the Moon - The Moon Fluorescence Extends the Fluorescence of the Sun - The Sunflowers Extends the Venusian Flu -
The Venusian Fluorescence - The moisture coil extends the cold flask - and the cold wave extends the flux Lysosseus -
The molten floss extends the air space - the air floss extends the water flux - and the water floss extends the earth's orbit - and the dust can extend Saturn's orbit in the upper.
The letters and numbers have a close connection to the planets learning it is the first step toward learning the real concept of spirituality and how to bring a demon under your command to serve your magic work.
Another example the letter of the c and the numbers on it are three on the sentence and fifty-three on the detail and the letter M forty .. and the letter Z: ten .. and that the Jupiter lap is the letter of the Woe and the concord of the c, and Venus has the letter ,,, and has a concordance.
the character of the A (أ ) has very great airy demon he serve planet Mars and he is King of the demon kings (of the lower jinn called red), and that the letter is strong and effective if struck in the same showed obedience , this letter has power in the discharge of other letters
The discharge of a Mercury orbiter has eight digits and the letter H, and it has a apell, and the Moon has a number of nine, which is the letter of distraction and so on .
and you can use it in this way i will remove the name of the demon to not be used ,"I swear to you, xxx, and your servants and your servants from the upper and lower, and the servants of all the A letters (of course the letter should be written in arabic , except what you have heard and obeyed, and your anger so and so,
So yes real magic exist but very few and rare people know its secrets and can correctly perform it,most people claiming to be magicians or magic experts are just fake or fraud and for sure you will not find around you any genuine one.
