Julia from Medina, OH

I am unsure if I am a witch or not, but it is oddly only related to sexual things. For example, it seems when I am in the same room as somebody and I feel an amount of passion or lust, they begin to feel it too. Also, I have witnessed my conscious thoughts start to affect a person who is dreaming, based off of their reactions to what I am thinking. Sometimes, as well, my fantasies come true if I wish for them hard enough. Can you let me know what is happening? I am not that experienced in witchcraft or anything, and I have been searching around, but I cannot seem to find any specific name for my sexual powers, or what they mean. Please get back as soon as possible. I am getting very curious of what I am and what I am capable of. Thank you so much!

Dear Julia,

I'm thinking it has less to do with witchcraft and more to do with energy. Sexual energy can be a very powerful force when we are around people we feel a pull towards.


What you are doing is projecting your energy out, and that energy is affecting those around you. This is actually something you need to stop doing since you are forcing your energy on other people. An easy way to control your energy projection is to wear black tourmaline. Black tourmaline creates a protective barrier between you and other people.

I'm not sure what you mean by "I have witnessed my conscious thoughts start to affect a person who is dreaming, based off of their reactions to what I am thinking." To me this seems a little creepy or stalker-ish.

Amy from Chambersburg, PA

My family and I moved to a new place in 2014. Since June, 2014 things have been happening:

1. I have been harassed by someone online - mainly cyberbullying - the person who is doing the bullying thinks I'm someone named Jo from England. (Which I'm not). I'm trying to figure out what I did wrong to get the person attached to me and is there anything (spiritually) I can do to get rid of them?

2. Since moving, my daughter (11) has had trouble sleeping. Is there anything I can/should do to help her sleep? She used to have amethyst stones under her mattress that seemed to help in our old house, but they have disappeared since the move.

Thank you for any and all help.


-------------

Dear Amy,

1.  You most likely did nothing karmically to have this person harass you. It all has to  do with their crazy ass and their inability to understand that you are not Jo. If the harassment is happening on social media (i.e. FaceBook or Twitter) then block them. If you've done this and nothing has changed then it's time to put them in the freezer!


You'll need a freezer safe bag filled half way with water, if possible a picture of them (or just write their name of a piece of paper), and a black pen.

On the back of the picture/paper write: LEAVE ME ALONE. Put the picture/paper into the half filled freeer bag and close it. Now throw the whole thing into the freezer and forget about it!

2. I would put black tourmaline (protection), bloodstone (absorbs negative energy), and citrine (anti-nightmare) gemstones between the mattress and box spring.

Keep us up to date!

Karyn from Searcy, AK

This is going to more than likely be seen as a stupid question but here it goes anyway. I have a family member who is currently in jail and has been there in holding for almost a year. (He hasn't been tried/sentenced yet). Do you know of a spell that I could possibly do that could get him out sooner or at all?

-------------

Dear Karyn,

You could do a spell for justice, but be warned... with justice spells, ALL guilty parties are punished in some form.  I don't know what your family member did, but it might serve them to just stay put for now.

Paranormal Fiction "Magick Charm" available on Kindle

One of the members of the Ask-A-Witch team has recently re-released her first novel, Magick Charm, on Kindle. It's only $2.99 to buy it, but you can also read it for free via Kindle Unlimited or from the Kindle Owner's Lending Library if you're an Amazon Prime customer.

Thank you for supporting an Indie author! Good karma points to everyone who shares this post! - Jen

About Magick Charm:

Cover by Samantha Harvey,
aka "Witch"
Janie Adler likes her quiet, orderly life reviewing books for a small New Orleans newspaper exactly the way it is. So what if Duke Hot Pants, the hero of her favorite romance novel, is the only man in her life? She has a Pulitzer Prize to chase. That is until her quirky twin sister Rachel moves in, bringing boyfriend drama, a smelly ferret, and irrational belief in all things magickal along with her.

Persuaded by a local voodoo priestess-and maybe one margarita too many-the twins cast spells to improve their love lives. Loser-magnet Rachel focuses on avoiding the wrong men and Janie seeks her romance novel ideal. While plenty of eligible bachelors flood into their lives, Janie only has eyes for her coworker who lives in the apartment downstairs and works in the cube next to her.

But the twins soon discover the incantations' many unintended-and dangerous-consequences. The increasing number of mishaps and misfortune putting the sisters in grave peril seems more like the work of a curse. Can Janie and Rachel's "twintuition" save them from the menace stalking them?

Rosa from Culpeper, VA

I just moved and am in a new city. I've been mostly a solitary witch for about six years, but it's rare when I practice or research. I grew up in a Christian-heavy family who shun the idea of magick. The same goes for my in-laws; no magick, fantasy, or fun. Now that you know a bit of my background, I was wondering if you could help me and my husband find a teacher so that neither of us are wandering aimlessly trying to figure out our beliefs.

Lulu from Stop, KY

My cat, Salem, has gone missing. Is there a spell that will really work to bring him home or at least protect him from harm? Please help me. I love my cat dearly.

-------------

Dear Lulu,

I'm so sorry, Lulu! I would call on the Egyptian Goddess, Bast, to help bring your Salem home.


Grab a picture of your fur baby (I'm sure you have thousands ♡), a magnet, and a candle (color doesn't matter).

On the back of the picture write a plea to Bast to keep Salem safe and healthy until he comes home. Place the picture on a table facing up, then place the magnet on top of the picture.

Now hold the candle in the palms of your hand and see/sense/feel/know Salem walking back through your door... BELIEVE he will come home healthy and quickly. Place the candle by the picture and magnet and light it.

Please let us know when Salem comes home!!!

Hazel from Northern Virginia

So I've recently discovered that I'm an empath. Before, I I just figured they were emotional issues and lived a stressful life. In the last few months I've become very much at peace with myself on a spiritual level. I want to keep my faith alive. Since finding my gift, I've been able to sleep better and meditate anywhere at anytime with no problem. I'm still having problems controlling all of the negative energy and pain that I'm picking up.

What are some things or exercises I can do to help train my mind and body to not react to these feelings? They can be very overwhelming and scary at times.

I ask because my daughter picks up on them as well, and I'd like to be able to help her so she doesn't have to suffer growing up the way I did.

-------------

Dear Hazel,

One of the best ways to control empathic abilities is to work with them as often as possible. Think of negative energy as screaming and positive energy as whispering. Negative energy is easier to pick up because it's thicker, denser, louder, which also means it's the easiest to block out. Envision a suit of armor made out of adamantium, allowing energy out, air in, but not allowing anyone else's energy in towards you. By getting into the practice of doing this every day with your daughter before ever leaving the house and doing touch ups during the day, you'll find that things improve dramatically. You'll want your daughter to be extremely proficient at this before she enters into high school which is a cesspool of negative emotions.

Tracy from Whitefish, MT

There is a person in my group who believes I can "lend" him my power to help him. Have you ever heard of such a request? I admit that I am new although I have always been a witch. I would like advice on a protection spell for him. Thank you so much!

-------------

Dear Tracy,

Technically, yes, if by "power" you mean your energy. Your energy can be shared with a person during ritual or spell work. But it's not recommended to do it too often or with too many people.


Your friend should want to protect himself and shouldn't get into the habit of borrowing people's powers to perform magickal workings. If you want to give him a gift like a talisman or gemstones (bloodstone, tourmaline, onyx, Apache tear), that would be a lovely gift.

Dominik from Weert, Netherlands

Hello, I know I'm still 17, but I want to ask if there is something like a spell or magic for luck. Actually I'm very realistic and mostly I don't believe in this kind of stuff, but I thought that it can't do any harm to try this. I had and I still have (for some parts) a difficult life. So finally I wondered if there is something that can bring at least a small piece of luck into my life. It can be a luck stone, spell or what so ever, but please help me.

-------------

Dear Dominik,

For luck, I like to carry around a piece of green aventurine and a piece of lodestone in my pocket. Be sure to cleanse the stones when you first get them, hold them in the palms of your hands, and see/think/sense/feel all kinds of good luck flowing into those gemstones. Put them into your pockets and carry them around with you. Recleanse and recharge them once a week.
