Stark from La Habra, CA

I started a candle spell together with a personal sigil I created (not a name sigil). I feel that I may have used the wrong color candle in accordance with my sigil, or vice versa. The candle is burning on one side with a flickering flame and I feel compelled to stop the spell and start over. In your opinion, what is the best way to stop a spell in progress?


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

Dear Stark,

Once you've put your intent into the spell, the color of the candle doesn't matter. As a matter of fact, the color of the candle doesn't matter at all. Your intent is what fuels the spell.


But to answer your question, if you want to stop a spell in progress, gather all the components together (blow out any candles first), place your hands over the items, and focus your intent on canceling the spell. Throw away any trash and put the salvageable pieces away.

Mary from Alexandria, VA

Is there a spell that clones a younger version of someone? Or a spell to turn a TV show into the real world? Please help.

Dear Mary,

Hells to the no, girl!

Sue from Athens, TX

Me and my mother went to shop one afternoon, and when we got back, there were two piles of dirt on her living room floor. Someone came into the house while she was gone and put it there. Is this some kind of spell or curse someone has put on her or her husband?

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

Dear Sue,

It really would depend on where the dirt came from and if there was anything else in the dirt (like herbs or gemstones).


I have to be honest, though. I don't feel like it was magickal at all. If you really want to curse someone, you don't need to break into their home to make it effective. I would have called the police and reported the break in.

Kayla from Fairfax Station, VA

Hi! I'm starting a Cosplay club at my school. I was wondering, what are good gems and herbs to make up a charm bag for a cosplayer? Things like confidence in yourself and your work, creativity, passion for what you do, not giving up, and communication are very important for something like this, as well as attracting lifelong friends! :)

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

Dear Kayla,

This is a great idea!  If I were making the charm bag, I would use a gold bag (for friendship) and put the following items in it:


Citrine for confidence
Orange peel for creativity
Rose for passion
Sunstone for determination
White willow bark for communication
Fluorite for mental clarity

All of these items are fairly cheap and really common!

Travis from Tazewell, TN

I have some major demons I've never told anyone about before. The other night I told my wife, and since then I can feel something coming for me. Hell, sometimes I can see them all shadowy with red eyes. I'm not crazy, but I can feel them grabbing me and I can feel that they want to take me and punish me. It sounds insane but I know they are coming for me. I bought a cheap talisman. I was just hoping there was some kind of blessing or something because I'm scared - not schizophrenic crazy scared - honest to goodness scared of them. I see and feel them all around me. Please send me some advice.

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

Dear Travis,

It doesn't matter how cheap or expensive a talisman is, it's the intent (energy) that empowers the item.


Hold the talisman in your palms of your hands, close your eyes, and imagine/see/sense/feel/know the talisman creating a protective barrier around you made of the strongest metal you can think of. I like to use adamantium (from X-Men) as my protective barrier. Continue to hold and focus on the talisman until you feel your intent is in it. Carry or wear it at all times.

I don't know what religion you practice, but find a prayer, chant, or incantation you connect with most.

Good luck, honey.

What is the purpose of my life on earth as a spiritual leader?

To help people feel powerful, empowered, and capable of doing whatever they put their mind to. Spiritual leaders are supposed to be servants of their community.

Sarah from Sterling, VA

Is there an appointment I can make with someone to remove the evil eye? It was placed on my grandmother after the death of her first son, and has been passed down to myself.


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

Dear Sarah,

NO! Do not make an "appointment" with anyone to remove a curse you feel has been placed on you. This is actually something you can do on your own.  13 Magickal Moons has a Curse Removal kit that has had extremely positive results!

Sphinx from Cape Town, South Africa

Hello Team. I have been a practitioner of The Craft for some time now, and what a fun journey it's been.

Anywho, my question is, when I started this path there were some lovely little tricks provided by "powers that be" which I learned with time and dedication to slightly hone. Not too long ago, I started finding that my senses started becoming heightened, not all at once, thank the Gods, but one by one.

I just wanted to know if anyone had any insight on this or is it just one of those subjective experiences, and I just need to enjoy the ride?

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

Dear Sphinx,

It's not uncommon for a practitioner to become more aware of their growing senses the more connected they are to their spirituality and the Divine.


So in answer to your question... just enjoy the ride!

Sammantha from Orange, VA

How do prosperity candles work?

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

Dear Sammantha,

A lot of times prosperity candles have oils, gemstones, and/or herbs that correspond to bringing prosperity towards the user. Remember to charge any candle you buy with your intent, otherwise it's just a nice smelling candle.

Kurt from Cape Town, South Africa

Hello Team. I was wondering how a crack in a crystal would affect it's performance, for lack of a better term. I know it may sound silly, but I swear I read that it some alters its abilities, I just can't recall how. Blessed be.

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

Dear Kurt,

Some believe a cracked crystal, especially clear quartz, can produce more chaotic energy. Others believe a cracked crystal produces no energy at all. Me, I believe the crack doesn't mean much except that it's cracked. When a crystal has zero energy left in it, it usually breaks fully apart and will look dull and blah.

I am wondering if you know of any ritual that could help stack the odds in my favor in a court case.

Dear Alex,

Dorothy Morrison's book Utterly Wicked has a fantastic Brick Spell. I have personally used it and had awesome results!

Paigon from England

Hello, my name is Paigon and I am 17 years old. I did a love spell - I guess that's what it was anyway - a while back. I used a lot of my own blood and then I burned the paper with my words and watched as the smoke fled out into the universe. It worked, and I'm afraid that the only reason some things may have happened were because of this spell. Tonight, I am thinking of doing another blood/average spell. My words are flat and I just want to make the bond between me and the universe stronger. I sometimes beg for sadness as sadness is my only comfort. I do not want to lose Sarah because of this and because of the spell, would bonding my sadness with love be harsh for Sarah's sake? Will it ruin everything we have? I'm sorry if this is crazy and you can't make out what I am saying in the pure sense. But basically I want to be more in love and I don't want to be selfish with magick and Sarah herself. I want stronger love and I am afraid that magick will somehow make chaos. I do trust the universe, but I am afraid I have ruined everything because I have used magick instead of actually falling in love. I don't know but here you go, haha! Thank you.


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

Dear Paigon,

If you really want to make the bond between yourself and the Universe stronger, connecting and communicating would be much more effective then any spell.


Honey, the fact that you said "sometimes I beg for sadness as sadness is my only comfort," concerns me a great deal! Sadness is something we go through and something we should live by. Please talk to your parents about seeing a psychiatrist or at least a counselor.

Undo whatever spell you did. Sarah doesn't need to be connected to whatever sadness you have going on. Magick should be used to help enhance your life and help improve what you have in your life.

Any love spell you created can be easily undone using the same process you used to create it. In the future, I recommend you don't perform any love spell to strengthen a relationship unless (a) you two are committed to each other and (b) they know about it.
