Zach from Ingalls, IN

What's a spell for freezing time or for freezing people?


Dear Zach,

There are none. Going to school for movie special effects is the closest you're going to get in the real world ; - )

Tiffany from Crown Point, IN

I would like to know if you can cast a spell for me to become a beautiful singer? I am 13, just so you know:) The spells I would like to cast are a beauty spell, an eye spell, and an immortal spell, if that's possible. I would also like to know why the spells I do don't work. My grandmother says witchcraft is not real, so is it? I was wondering if you can also do a werewolf curse on me and change my eye color? If so, I would love my eye color to be a shade of yellow like a wolf's eye color? Thank you sooo much! ;)


Dear Tiffany,

Honey, the reason your spells aren't working is because the spells you are casting are impossible. In real Wicca/Witchcraft, magick is energy and not nearly as cool or wondrous as what you see in the movies.

Nena from Victorville, CA

Hi I'm Nena and I'm 20 years old. I was wondering if you knew what I should do for this to stop happening to me. Ever since I was little, bad things, negative things, happened to me.

I would wake up seeing a huge black shadow shaped as a man wearing a coat and an old-school hat. Watching me. I could feel all the negative energy coming from him. Or there were many times I would wake up and get paralyzed. I would hear growls and see flying shadows on my ceiling. One time I woke up with a girl laying on top of me. I didn't see her face, but I saw her hair. Also there were a couple times where I feel my bed sink in; I had my legs up and something put its hands on my knees and was just looking at me, or it laid behind me, wrapped its arm around me, rocked me three times very aggressively, then kissed my forehead a couple times. There was a time it was sitting where my feet were, facing me and whispering "I'm tired of waiting. Wake up." Then I got paralyzed. Mind you, this is all bad because I could feel all the negative, evil, twisted energy from them.

I'm tired of always feeling like I'm being watched and tormented. One time, while laying on my left side, a hand grabbed my neck and started choking me, waking me up. I tried grabbing the hand off of my neck. I got its thumb - it was big with a pointed nail. Sometimes when I get paralyzed, I scream for my mom, but she never hears me. I don't know why.

No, I don't want to hear it's sleep paralysis; I know it's not. My whole family believes me. We all have "gifts." I just don't like it because my gifts only have to do with things that are negative.

Do you have any advice about what I should do? Something I should put in my room, anything? I grew up in a Christian home, but my mom knew we have witchiness in us because my great aunt and great great grandma were pure real deal witches. She blames them for what happens to us, that they "opened a door " and "cursed our blood line." Ever since I was little, I always wanted to be a witch. I was always interested, fascinated. Now maybe it's time I get answers from someone who is a witch. Thank you for reading, and I hope I hear from you.


Dear Nena,

You need to do a banishing ritual/spell right away. Please read my response to Brittney from Las Vegas for a list of things you need.

After you perform the banishing, you'll need to put up some protective measures around you and your home. Please read my response to Star from Europe for useful hints.

Please check back in with me and let me know you're ok.

Kristina from Frisco, TX

I found a marking on a concrete path recently and would like to know what it means. I've done some research and can't find its meaning. Hoping you can help. Happy to send the picture.


Dear Kristina,

You'll definitely need to send a picture!

Tina from the United States

Are spells people say can make you a mermaid, give you animal shape shifting abilities, or give you powers real? If so, can you give me some? How do I become Wiccan?

How do you make spells work? What websites give true spells? How do you do magic?


Dear Tina,

Nope... there are no real shape shifting spells. No mermaid, werewolf, vampire, etc. spells.

Jennifer from Virginia

I want to do witchcraft. To do witchcraft, do I have to be a Wiccan?


Dear Jennifer,

Not necessarily, but witches don't "do" witchcraft. Witchcraft is a beautiful spiritual practice and belief. To get yourself started, please visit our Advice for New Witches page.

Anna from Toronto, Canada

So there is this man that I am absolutely in love with, and I have known that I loved him since I first met him. We have been in each other's lives since we were probably 10 or 11 years old and have been best friends since then as well. We have been in and out of one another's lives throughout the years, and no matter how far we are apart, something ends up making our paths cross time and time again. As of this summer, we decided that it was time for us to actually start a serious romantic relationship. However, as it always seems to happen, shortly after we got together, he had to move away for work. Now, I don't want you to think I'm looking for a spell to bring him back to where I am. Fate has a way of bringing our paths back together time and time again so I know he will be back. In the meantime, we are comfortable in our current long distance relationship. However, as of late I've been thinking about how I could go about doing a good fortune spell for him. Could you give me any advice? I'm not imagining anything exuberant, I just wish for him to be successful in all his endeavors. Any advice would be appreciated! Blessed be.


Dear Anna,

IF your friend has given his permission for you to do a little something for him, then absolutely it's a wonderful idea. Please read my response to Obianuju from Nigeria for some useful correspondences.

How do I get into someone else's body?


Dear Amy,

Uh... you don't.

Kealhan from Sweden

Just to clarify, this is the first time I'm reaching out via cyberspace or in "reality" to the magic users of witchcraft for answers. My focus is in the magic of engineering, so I hope that my ignorance of your school of magic doesn't offend anybody here.

This is what I'm curious about: I have had dreams that later happened in real life later on. I can also see some witches' faces morph into what I call " spirit side."  I can make people sneeze by thinking about them sneezing really hard (like a sonar pulse).

My question to you is have you heard of these things before, and if so, do these phenomena have names? Best wishes.


Dear Kealhan,

The dreams you're having are called premonitions, meaning you are dreaming about future events.  I'm not sure what the morphing thing is all about.  As for the making people sneeze thing, that is you manipulating the energy around the other person. I'd be careful with that one because that is you exerting your authority/power over another person.

Best wishes!

Brianne from Woodbridge, VA

Sorry in advance - this will be a little weird for you to read. But I am just not enjoying sex, period. I have tried flings, one night stands, and even in relationships I am just not enjoying it. I really think something is wrong with me. Sometimes I have to be drunk and when I am drunk, my body will do fantastic sex; when I am sober, nothing. Its like I am super tense. Is it because I am not really into the guy or is my body that is broken? Thanks.


Dear Brianne,

Believe it or not, there are many women out there who experience the same thing. One thing you should do is go to your doctor and have a full physical done. There could be a medical reason for your lack of sexual enjoyment.

The fact that you are able to enjoy sex, or at least believe yourself to enjoy sex, while drunk could mean that you are super tense and inhibited when sober, which could mean that there could have been a sexual trauma in your past. For that, I would recommend you visit a counselor to help you with those issues.

Either way, maybe now is the time for you to focus on you and not worry about having sex right now. Don't have sex again until you are really, really into the person and have NOT been drinking.

Please go see a doctor and a counselor.

Haley from Springfield, OH

Am I a werewolf? I was adopted, and my biological great grandfather was Finnish. The reason I'm asking is because I can feel I have an... understanding of dogs and cats? Or maybe that's just because I'm an empath.. Thank you for your time.


Dear Haley,

Yeah... you're not a werewolf... 'cause you know werewolves aren't real.  But you could be an empath.

Less from Phillipines

Hi! Are there any paper spells that I may use (a simple but effective spell using only paper without the use of candles)? I'm not that specific because I want to learn them all. Thank you!


Dear Less,

Paper spells for what purpose?

Gabriela from West Bridgewater, MA

Merry Meet. I have a very serious issue: we believe that my sister's ex has been working with a black magic witch (bad witch) because of what has been going on for a while now. The first proof that we (my family) has is when my sister moved back into her home (long story), she found an upside-down cross on a wall of one of her hallways. I am very new at witchcraft. Is there a possibility I would be able to fight against him/her (bad witch)? Do I need to have another witch involved instead due to me being a relative? What can I do to ease and stop all bad things happening to her and her family and perhaps other close family members?


Dear Gabriela,

No witch (Wiccan/Pagan practitioner) would use an upside-down cross because a cross is a Christian symbol.

Read the response we wrote to Chris from Auckland, New Zealand for additional suggestions.

Taylor from San Antonio, TX

Hello, I currently don't trust anyone to do a spell for me considering I have been ripped out of $1,200. I need to know a spell I can do that is not dangerous and is somewhat easy that will bring my ex-girlfriend back. She is currently in a relationship. I have done some spells but none of them worked. Maybe I did them wrong??? Please help.


Dear Taylor,

Never pay anyone to perform a spell for you! Most people who ask you for an outrageous amount of money for spells are nothing more than bottom feeding wastes of flesh... oh, and they're con artists to boot!

Try using the easy-to-do spell we wrote for Merlin from Camelot.

Your ex-girlfriend is an ex for a reason. Perhaps you should REALLY think about WHY the spells you perform aren't working. Maybe it's time to move on and find a new girlfriend.

Evelyn from Athens, OH

I just moved into a dorm and I don't like the feel of it. I want to do a warding/protection spell, but I can't burn anything at all in the dorm. Do you know of any spells for protection/purifying/warding that don't require cleansing fire?


Dear Evelyn,

First let's starting with cleansing. Make a cleansing room spray using distilled water, a tablespoon of witch hazel astringent, lavender essential oil, and sage essential oil. This room spray will cleanse away any negative energy in your room and bring in positive energy as well.

Next, make a mojo bag to hang near the inside of your door. Use a small decorative bag in your favorite color. I would use herbs like lavender, sage, and rue. Also add one piece each of the gemstones black tourmaline and bloodstone. I also like to place an image of an eye to protect against people sending their negativity my way.

Once you have everything together, hold the bag in between the palms of your hands and say something like:

Lord and Lady, hear my plea
Safety and protection I ask of thee
Help me to create sacred space
Within the walls of this crazy place
Keep all the negative far from me
As I ask it, so make it be

Good luck, honey!

David from Somonauk, IL

I performed a ritual to cleanse myself of the curse that was placed on a maternal ancestor and her decedents, of whom I am one. At the end of it, I went outside to dispose of some of the things from the ritual, and to my surprise, an owl made its presence known to me, which startled my a little. I have not heard an owl in the area that I live in years. Is this owl's presence significant to me and/or the ritual that I performed?


Dear David,

Yes, the owl's presence could be significant to you and your ritual.

Owls are sacred to Artemis, Athena, Cailleach, Hecate, Lakshmi, Minerva, and Ares. They also correspond with assertiveness, authority, defense, freedom, guardian, knowledge, magick, protection, and wisdom.

I would guess that your ritual was a HUGE success and the curse has been broken!

Great job!
