Kylle from Phillipines

Hi there!! My name is Kylle and I am 13 years old. Do you have a spell to turn me into a real witch?? Because ever since I was little, I've wished to be a real witchling!!! Please, do you have a spell?!

Also, I want a simple crush spell too so my crush will had a crush on me too. Please, can you give me the spell?!


Dear Kylle,

Sorry, no. Refer to our Advice for New Witches Page for information about your chosen path. Being a real witch means learning, practicing, and understanding morals and ethics.

John from Raleigh, NC

If your mom is trying to get away from a abusive man, but she can't go to the police and her life could be in danger, is it okay to use black magic as means for protecting your mom from him without it coming back to you?


Dear John,

Let me state this very clearly. When it comes to protecting your family for danger, in my opinion, karma doesn't matter. If someone is coming after my family, I will take the karmic backlash to protect them and stand behind what I do. Black magick is black magick. Black magick always comes with a karmic debt. Do you accept taking on that debt for your family?

Before turning to black magic though, try doing a modified version of the binding spell we gave to Carol from Stafford against the abusive man in your mother's life.

Annette from Palm Springs, CA

I have an uneasy feeling and I don't know what it means.


Dear Annette,

Me either. You should have given me more details! However if you wake up in the morning with an uneasy feeling, it usually means bad news is on the way, but it doesn't necessarily mean it's bad news for you.

Kayla from United States

I'm new to Wicca, and I wanted to ask a question about spells. Just say I was doing a spell for a certain thing like beauty. By casting more than one spell for the same thing, would it make it come faster or make it worse by not working all together?


Dear Kayla,

It might make it worse because you're sending out spells that could possibly conflict. When it comes to magick, you have to remember to have patience. However, if you're waiting on a glamour spell to be successful, it's not going to. Glamour spells usually don't work.

Darius from Rome, Italy

Hello, my name is Darius. I have lived in Rome, Italy for some time now,  but I was born in Poland.

So I have a story to tell you and I would love to have an honest answer.  I was a young boy, 8 years old (I was born February 29, 1972) and as I remember it was the winter of 1980, bloody cold, and lot of snow. I had two sisters at this time and they were a little younger than me. 

All of us - me, my sisters, and my parents - were sitting in the living room watching TV. My father was smoking a cigarette and he had a lighter that looked like a gun; when you squeeze the trigger, it lights. At about 7 PM, we were all waiting for the cartoon to come on. I was playing with my father's lighter. My father told me to stop, so I put the lighter on the table.

The living room was normal. The sofa is in the center of the room with the TV on the right and windows with transparent curtains on the left. I want to add that the building was just two floors high, and we lived on the second floor. It was snowing and about -35C degrees outside.

So we are waiting for the cartoon and I started playing with the lighter again. At that moment, I saw someone on the other side of the window. I stood up to go closer. At the same time, my mom tells me not to go near the window. So when I was near the window, I opened the curtains, and was surprised to see a really old woman looking back at me. She had super green eyes. I remember that she wore a dirty, old-fashioned outfit. Her hair resembled what Tina Turner's hair would look like in the morning. Her face was old with lot of wrinkles.

When she looked at me this time, I was not scared or anything. I was just looking into her eyes. A moment later, it was like I was waking up. I had my father's lighter in my hand so I looked at the old woman and squeezed the trigger. She just disappeared. I saw her move like the wind.

My mom and dad started talking again. They were as surprised as I was because this was around 11 pm and they don't remember anything. I told my parents, but they think it was my imagination.

Can you please explain to me what happened that night? After that night, my life has been filled with very back luck like everyone is against me.

Thank you and I'm looking forward to your answer.


Dear Darius,

Imagine how insulting it is for a spirit to have a gun, even a fake one, pointed in her direction by a child who then pulled the trigger. It shows a complete lack of respect. Since you're claiming to have had bad luck since then, I would guess the spirit has been following you to pay you back. I recommend you speaking out loud a heartfelt apology to the spirit. I suspect things will begin to turn around at that time.

Erandi from Santa Ana, CA

What does it mean when someone leaves a plate with an egg, pennies, and rice in front of your house? Someone placed it next to my mailbox, and it is freaky! I'm trying to find answers online, but I come up empty. Please help.


Dear Erandi,

It sounds like some type of tradition from another religion in celebration. All the items on the plate, to me, symbolize good fortune and good luck.

Veronica from Los Angeles, CA

I am now four months pregnant with a beautiful baby, and I cheated on my boyfriend with a guy from my job. I am not sure who the father is. It is either my boyfriend or the guy from my job. I believe it's my boyfriend's. Is there a spell that can reveal to me who the biological father is? Thanks.


Dear Veronica,

Most likely you're going to have to get a DNA test. However, getting a tarot reading with a reputable reader might help provide guidance about who the father could be. We recommend our favorite tarot reader, John.

Going with simple math, two weeks after the first day of your last period is around the time when you ovulated. So the conception could have happened three days before or after ovulation. If you were banging both men in that week, pray it's not twins!

Jamaica from Ohio

I just have one question. A couple months ago, I woke up with scars on my chest. It was red like it just happened, but they were cuts like they were healing. I'm confused about it.


Dear Jamaica,

Sounds like you could have had an experience where your dreams caused physical manifestations, a spirit touched you, a house pet leapt on your chest, or most likely, you scratched yourself in your sleep and didn't realize it. Even if you're a nail biter, nubs can still leave marks.

Jade from Dumaguete City, Philippines

Ever since I was a child, I've had tons of dreams that would always come true exactly how I dream it. I can also see people's deaths whether they're close to me or not. I also feel a dying person's pain when I wake up. I didn't tell anyone about that until my mother told me one secret she never told anybody else. We actually come from a lineage of witches that are adept at dark magic. My mother didn't seem to inherit anything, though. But whenever I cast a spell, I always end up making people weak, sickly, and in pain no matter what my intentions are. What should I do? I'm really scared. I've stopped casting anything when I noticed what it could do to people.


Dear Jade,

You are doing the right thing by no longer casting, but I'm not convinced of this whole "dark magic" thing. There isn't a huge coven of white witches and their adversaries, the dark witches. Stuff like that lives in movies and books. In reality, magick and energy stems from what you're feeling inside. If you think you're a "dark" witch, then the energy you're sending out is in fact dark because that's what you believe of yourself. Like attracts like. Focus on yourself for now. Focus on the good inside you, the positive things you have in your life, and try to appreciate the beauty and life this world has to offer.

Rashi from Lucknow, India

Please, please, help me. Please, can you cast a spell for me, a beauty spell which would make me above average beautiful and kind of similar-looking to Kristen Stewart? It doesn't matter if people recognize me or not, just please cast a spell, please. I am fed up with my life and want to start over. People are always telling me how ugly I am. Also, a guy is there who is always following me home from school. After I graduate, I am scared he will follow me there also. Please, please, I am begging you. Please help me, please.


Dear Rashi,

There is no beauty spell that works. However, doing something for yourself like getting a flattering haircut, experimenting with some makeup, and splurging on some new clothes could do wonders for your self image. 
If you're heading to college soon, that's a great opportunity for you to become the person you always wanted to be. I can promise you that Kristen Stewart has her own issues she has to deal with, despite what the public thinks of her or how beautiful she is.

Here's the problem I see: WTF is this guy following you home for? You need to let someone know as soon as possible that this is happening. It's unacceptable and creepy!

Lola from Oshkosh, WI

I have a young son with severe cerebral palsy. Lately he's been having a lot of difficulties. I am trying everything I can to help ease his pain or calm his nerves. I'm looking for a sigil or talisman for his room. I just don't know what would be best or which to do. I need help!


Dear Lola,

It depends on what religion you practice. If you're Christian, place a cross and a statue of the Virgin Mary in his room. If you're Wiccan, a pentagram would be appropriate, along with images of the healing Buddha and Quan Yin. If you're neither of these, then the ancient symbol of healing, the caduceous, would be appropriate along with an image of the greek goddess Hygeia.

As for your son, you might want to think about finding some affordable Reiki classes, which could help ease some of your son's pain and anxiety. Please let me know if you would be okay with me adding both of you to my healing book so I may send you Reiki.

Mace from North Carolina

I'm not exactly new to this, but I'm still not a witch so I don't know what to do. I had a demon lodged inside of me (not by choice), and because of my natural state and abilities I can handle it. In fact, I can control his power. But recently, not only can I not even feel his presence anymore, my powers are wonky and far weaker than before, even weaker than before I was awakened.

I used to have very good control over my powers. A while ago, it fell apart. Now if I sneeze, the channel will change. Do you have any ideas helping me get my powers back under control?

I have no idea what I am. I can control the wind and ice and have even more core abilities tying me to chaos, darkness, etc. Any help would be great.

Also, I mentioned a demon that was forced inside of me (again, not by choice). Unfortunately when it happened, I was unable to move. I was pinned down by what felt like incredible gravity. A woman I have never seen before entered the room I was in, but I was unable to see her face (because of the gravity). Now all she did was walk into the room, lay her hand on my arm, kiss my forehead, say "I love you," and leave. Now I will go into detail: she was extremely pale, dressed like a 17 year old, looked like a 17 year old, and wore mostly black. When she touched my arm, it felt like a red hot burning titanic was cutting off my arm (not fun). Then she left and I bolted back up off the floor (because I was forced down). A witch friend of mine said she put a mid-level demon in me. She also said that is supposed to be impossible and has no idea why I'm alive. I was able to contact him (not a nice guy by the way), and I can forcefully use his powers. I have powers of my own, but I'm not a witch. Me and my very close friend have nearly opposite abilities, mine being complete ice and wind control along with a core of chaos powers, core meaning directly from me. We have nicknamed it Oblivion. His powers are fire, an odd type of nature ability, and some weird space creation power we nicknamed Genesis. We also get visions of a kingdom that fell into darkness. We were forced out, but we only get bits and pieces, so it's hard to decipher. Anything is helpful. By the way, I would ask my witch friend, but she would kill me for not telling her the whole story, and she is not exactly new, but that doesn't mean she know a lot.

Sorry for bombarding you with questions, but I have an ability that doesn't suit my others at all. My others seem survival, stealth, or battle-related. I just randomly knew how to use the ability to completely drive pain away from a hurting person. If I try hard enough, it heals the actual wound instantly. I place my hands together, my fingers overlap, but my palms don't, and I send forth a separate energy than I'm used to. My hands heat up and I place them over the harmed area of the person without touching them. One, what is it? Two, is there a better or more efficient way to use it? Thanks.


Dear Mace,

You and your friend seriously need to back off the video games, sci-fi movies, crazy T.V. shows, and comics and come back to reality.  Some of what you experienced MIGHT be true... but it gets lost in the "demon" and "powers" nonsense you wrote.

Laila from Baltimore, MD

Hi, I don't know if you can help me or not, but I'm a natural born witch, and when I turned 16, I didn't get my full powers. I just got part of them, which I don't know when I'm using them or how. Is there anything I can do to gain my full power? I really don't know what to do, but I can feel a part of me is missing. I would appreciate any help. I am now 21 and I can feel a piece of me missing. Is there anything I can do at all? I know I have great gifts.


Dear Laila,

I think you might have confused fictional powers with real powers. Any powers that you have you were born with. Period.
