Even if I don’t write here, I tend to write down ideas for future posts. No matter where I find myself, and even if all I have at hand is a napkin, I put down in paper random thoughts. Issues going on in the world at large, a word or two which I have found intriguing and of course, any collected subconscious thoughts about spiritual practice, etc.
I also like paying attention to the “pulse” of magick. What people around me are doing with magick, how do they use it? Why?
One magickal subject I see cropping up a lot is the topic of revenge. With the easiness in this digital age, to access any type of topic under the Sun regarding magick, it is two things at once: Excellent that information is but a click away. But worrisome that many times, the same information, can have as well as the good, the ugly!
What I mean by that, is that the information obtained might refrain from going too deep, beyond the necessary spell steps. So that it is easy to find for example a spell to get revenge on someone. It does not contain anything but the basics beyond the needed steps and items needed for the spellwork.
But, it is necessary to asses what the situation calls for. To go within the self and think twice or thrice! if it’s worth it. After all, magick is energy. Whether we use it for good or negative deeds, we are utilizing the same energy. We infuse the purpose of the spell with our emotions, our reason to do the spiritual work in the first place.
So, if you think about it, we raise that energy. Send it out to the Universe. To, later on, manifest on this reality where we reside. That energy does not just bring back results. It lingers. What many might call “karma.” It is energy collected for a specific situation. If its a good deed, that energy will attract blessings, shall we say for a time until it diffuses. Or might stay on, then, later on, bring luck and dissipate. The same with negative deeds. Only the reverse.
I know! it is hard to let go of anger, and frustration when we know someone has jinxed our life. All we want when filled with those emotions is to get back at the person or persons for ruining our good fortune, blocking our money. Or anything else that might be going on to block our well being on all areas.
I also know, what I will say will make some of you frustrated. Perhaps dismiss my words as the words of a crazy person or just stop reading the post. It’s fine. But say it I must.
Sometimes the best thing to deal with evil energy sent to you is to reverse the hate with peace. Its to create a spell in which you will dissipate the energy sent to you with harmony. To create a balance where there is spiritual unbalance. To surround the hater (for that is what they are) with calming vibes.
I have been a practicing witch for so long, sometimes I even forget when exactly I started on my spiritual journey. I was younger. Filled with all these ideas and theories about how things should be done. I was impulsive. Like many others before and after me, I thought that if someone wronged me, then I had to protect me and mine. And I still think that protection is an important part of being a witch. Heck! For everyone really. We, unfortunately, live in a world where if anyone gets a notion they don’t like someone, boom! A jinx is sent. Sad but true.
But I did learn through the years, that sometimes handling the situation in an unexpected way of doing things, works better than creating negative energy for you or even your loved ones. This sort of “aha!” moment came to me through experience. Through countless times in which I would run out of ideas on how to stop people from just being evil and of course mean.
You know that saying, that love wins, and all we need is love, and.. it sounds so trite! But. It is true. Love is stronger than hate. It might not seem like it. It might seem a bit wimpy for some to return love instead of hate. But it is not. Think about it. Why would you want to create a dark cloud, hanging (literally) raining negative “karma” over you? When you can just deal with it in a reasonable, calm manner and have the upper hand? Why? Because the evildoer (yeah, that is what they are) does not expect that. They are prepared (or not) to receive like for like.
Of course, protection is a must! That is unarguably an important step when practicing magick in your spiritual path. Something that needs not wait until you have to, because someone went and jinxed you. No! It is an important part of being a witch. To keep vigilance is smart and it makes sense.
How (you may ask) can you get rid of jinx? in a way that will not leave you feeling a bit sick of the whole “You will rue the day” type of situation?
The first thing of course, as you might know, is to cleanse the self. The home, and the whole family if it’s possible for you to give each member of your family a spiritual cleansing. Create a strong protection shield around the home, not only by raising energy but by placing items which to you signify exactly that. Water is excellent to place in glass containers at the entrance and the back door of a home. Make sure to change it at least once a week, and keep doing it until you feel things are calmed. Rocks are also excellent “guardians” and they can be left as long as you wish to. But you need to cleanse spiritually and empower them for protection.
The main focus of the spiritual work is a candle spell. A black candle, cleansed and empowered to cut through the hate, to bring clarity and vanquish the evil deed. You want to also state that you want to balance out the negative energy. Burn for a while then snuff out to repeat the next day until the candle is done.
After that is done burn a white candle. To surround you and yours with a strong protective and blessing energy. Next, place several crystal stones, like rose quartz, moonstones and black tourmaline (just some suggestions) in a bag with a blend of herbs that attract peace, love, and protection as well. Write down what you want to accomplish which would be for the jinx to be removed and have peace. A ziplock bag is good. If you know the name/s of the person/persons who sent the jinx, the better! Add their names to the bag.
Cleanse and bless your home at each change of the Moon phases which would be 4 times a month. Do not skip this. It is important that you flow with the Moon phases. It creates a connection that keeps you focused and grounded.
And the most important step in all of the above is to send light energy and love ( ok! maybe not the love as that part is hard I understand, but light energy is a must) to the person that sent you the jinx in the first place. Why? because you want the hate to be done with. The black energy sent to you to be lifted and dissipated. You do not want to be locked into a witchcraft war (trust me, some people do that. They keep sending that bad energy back and forth between them). A forever struggle of who will win! Who’s stronger spiritually, etc. That is just a waste of energy that can be put to better use.
As with all in all life, all the advice in the world will not work if we do not want it to. It has to come from within. The need to rise above the ugly, the jinxes and revenge and be what we are meant to be. Someone who can see beyond the ordinary and understand that until we make a conscious decision of changing the hate game, we will not be able to raise about our petty differences and shine that light that is within us all.
Until I write again,
