Can you give me real powers?

Amethyst from Edmonton, Canada

Hello, I have this necklace and I was wondering if it had anything to do with magic. It's a blue circle rock shaped like a donut, and it's tied to a red string.


Dear Amethyst,

If it's a natural stone with a natural hole, then it's considered a witch's stone, which is extrememly protective. But I have no idea what blue, round rock you have, so that's my best guess.

Ant from Boston, MA

Is it possible for you to do a spell to grow my penis from where you are without me being present?


Dear Ant,

Oh, honey. I would rule the world if I could enlarge a man's penis using magickal means!

Helpless Meg from New England

Hi, I'm not sure where to turn. This isn't exactly a giant problem, just something that effects my general mood. My boyfriend is a Wiccan as well as an empath, and for an odd reason I can feel when he's in my head. It's a very distracting thing, my stomach turns, I get hot like I'm blushing, and it feels like he's staring into the back of my skull, even though he lives halfway across the country. Is there a way to stop this? I can normally shake most of the feeling when I concentrate on pushing it away, but it bugs the living hell out of me.


Dear Helpless Meg,

Yes. Black tourmaline will help put a protective barrier between you and him. But your boyfriend has no right rooting around in your head. Give him one warning - do it again and we're done - and if he does it again, dump his sorry ass!

Hayley from United Kingdon

Hello there. (A challenging one, this - as it goes back decades): My now elderly stepfather made the mistake of lending a precious historical artifact to a well-known British comedian who needed it for one of his routines. He went repeatedly to the theatre to collect it as they'd agreed, and phoned the man's agent many times, but was always fobbed off! The comic (now also elderly) is still using it today! I'd love to get it back for my stepdad. Any ideas? (He's been told since that the chap never gives back things he has "borrowed" - bit of a crook it seems...)


Dear Hayley,

Dorothy Morrison's book, Utterly Wicked, has some great spells in it which you could use to try to get the article back.

Also, contact a lawyer before he dies, or else your historical artifact will become his family's heirloom!

Sara from Woodbridge, VA

First off, I want to start off by saying I am happy with my marriage. But we do have our moments where it's difficult at times. Considering he is in the Marines and we move around, it can be stressful on me. I don't like the change. Lately, our sex life has been a little off, I am guessing because of the new move here and long hours he has to put in. I was wondering about gemstones to keep by the bed to make him want to have sex or something to spice up that department.


Dear Sara,

Garnet and clear quartz together can definitely help rev those engines! Before sex has to come some fun. Take some time to laugh and joke and play with your husband. You can't just jump on him when he's had a rough day. Don't seduce him, make him laugh.

James from Clovis, CA

Is there a cleansing that I can use to cleanse my body and soul of negative energy and keep it away? How would I do the cleansing and what items would I need? I become drained when I'm around too much negative energy.

Also, I would like to learn the Craft. What books do you recommend? Thanks.


Dear James,

As for your question about learning the Craft, please see our Advice for New Witches Page. It has good recommendations and was designed for people like you.

A nice bath with lavender, sage, and epsom salt can do a lot for removing and purging negative energy. You can also drink lavender tea to help purge negative energy internally. Unfortunately, there's no way to do this permanently because life attracts negative energy. However, whenever you feel the negative energy starting to build back up, simply have a cup of tea and a hot bath.

A from Canada

I got a ouija board a month ago, and I keep getting a spirit that says it's name is NM??


Dear A,

NM is probably the initials of the first and last name of the spirit. Hopefully you're casting a circle before using the ouija board. Not casting the circle is just inviting in all kinds of trouble.

Karen from San Lorenzo, CA

I have two questions for you. I live with my friend, and her husband's mother moved in. I noticed lately I'm finding water bottles filled up all over the house. Also I know I catch her meditating. I know she's not doing right. I found a piece of broken rosary beads in the center piece on the table. I know I have the power of this but I'm trying to learn how to control it. I need to know what this all means???

Next, I've been seeing this guy that I have fallen in love with. How do I make him feel the same way? I've tried to let him be, but he comes back. It's like he's afraid to be close.


Dear Karen,

I have no idea what you are talking about. Your friend's mother is old. She is probably leaving bottles of water around because she can't remember where she left them. She's old. She probably falls asleep all the time. She's old. She's probably breaking shit left and right!

As for the guy you've fallen in love with, if you want the love to be real, you are not going to do a spell. Give him some time. It takes two people to make a relationship work, not one person casting a spell on another one. Personally, I'd rather know someone loves me for me, not because I worked magick for it.

Sarah from Woodbridge, VA

I have lost many people over the years. At one point, in my early twenties, I was losing friends and family every three months. But, out of everyone that I know who has passed away, one has always affected me the most. A close friend of mine had to move away abruptly due to some legal issues. He was gone for several weeks when I got a call. He said that he had gotten into more legal trouble where he moved to and didn't know what to do. I didn't know what to tell him and it was a very short conversation. He said he would call me right back. He never called back again and didn't answer my calls. His previous girlfriend that lived near me called me a couple of days later and told me how he had shot himself later that same night.

Everyone else died in car accidents, overdosed, was killed, or died of old age or health-related issues. He was the only one who took his own life. Not to mention that he has done every tattoo on my body. I'm wondering if that might also have something to do with why his death has been so much harder on me than anyone else's. It has been five years since he's been gone.

I guess my real question is, what do Wiccans believe happens to people who kill themselves? I was raised Christian and some of those ingrained beliefs are hard to let go of. I have been practicing the Craft for only a few years now, so I am still new to it. So I still have a lot of questions that aren't in the books that I've read. This is one of them that has been weighing on me heavily. I just hope that his soul isn't lost and that he is at peace.


Dear Sarah,

His soul is not lost, and yes, he is at peace. Witches believe that when a person dies, when their soul leaves their physical body, their soul goes to Summerland. Summerland is a place that is beautiful and peaceful and allows the soul to absorb all the knowledge it gained from that particular lifetime and rejuvenate and prepare itself for the next lifetime.

I am terribly sorry for your loss. One of the reasons you may have such a difficult time with this particular death is because it was a death by his own hand and because the last time you spoke with him was the last day he was alive. Since you are a practicing Witch, it is never too late to have a passing to Summerland ritual for him. There is no better time to perform this ritual than Samhain of this year.

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.
