Terri from Caldwell, NJ

I am not a witch but have several friends who are. Although I am Christian, I believe in the power of both prayer and spell casting. Unfortunately, I called the spirit of intranquility a number of years ago to someone when we broke up. It was soon after I called the spirit that I knew it was wrong to do so and I was truly sorry, but since then, I am experiencing severe financial hardship. I have not been able to find a job in over two years, am currently filing for bankruptcy, and all the other numerous things that happen when one becomes financially unstable. I'm wondering if this is because of my spell? I did release the spirit, but I understand that this could be one of the reasons for my current hardship. I knew back then it was wrong, as I stated, but the wheels were set into motion. What can I do about it now, if anything?? Thanks so much!

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

Dear Terri,

I don't believe one has anything to do with the other. First of all, the timeframe doesn't match up: "a number of years ago" versus "two years."  Secondly, you felt bad about the thought and released the spirit.


It wouldn't hurt to cleanse yourself and your home with a sage bundle to get rid of all the negativity surrounding you. Drink lavender tea to purify yourself and your body. Get a white candle and inscribe the name of your ex on it along with words "I AM SORRY." Hold the candle in the palms of your hands and think about your ex with positive thoughts, and remember the good times you both had. Focus on your breathing for a few moments and then say something like:

I take back the negativity I sent to you
I release all emotions and attachments too
For my hasty actions, please forgive me
As I will it, so make it be

Light the candle and the let the energy flow!


Next you'll need to do a get a job spell. Please read my response to Anonymous from VA for some suggestions.

Alabaster from Sydney, Australia

Hi, so I've been wondering a few things about the craft. All stories need a beginning, and here is mine. I first found my passion for magic when I discovered my natural ability for curses. I realized I could make bad things happen to people who "annoyed" me. As a teen I, needless to say, abused the power I had been given. This went on for a while. I was hurting so many people and was being filled with terribly negative thoughts and energy. It eventually got to a point I now blame myself for the death of another who was close to me (my reasoning: I believe in the three-fold law and it was a by-product of all the negative energy I had created.) So I had had enough of the negativity and decided to only help others with my witchcraft. So I took up witchcraft and I find it a lot more difficult than the dark crafts. I need help. I can still charge and cast simple spells, but they always seem to be ineffective or rebound. What should I do? Forgetting the craft isn't a option. I love it, but I don't want to go back to my dark casting. By the way, I'm an eclectic witch. Thank you in advance.

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

Dear Alabaster,

You should feel bad for your past actions and you should spend a lifetime trying to make up for it.  You didn't "abuse" the power you had been given; you abused the poor people who had the audacity to "annoy" you.


I suggest you back off spell casting for while and focus more on the spirituality of witchcraft. Get to a great place of connection with the Divine, then begin to work with spells.

You are an eclectic idiot if you CHOOSE to go back to your old ways.

Missy from Charlotte, NC

I just started a new business. Can you offer any advice on spells that I can use for prosperity in my new business venture? Thanks!

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

Dear Missy,

Congratulations on your new business!!


Put a piece of malachite and a bay leaf in your register to attract money. Wash your windows and front door with a High John infusion to bring in lots of business. Burn sweetgrass, lavender, sage, or tobacco to invite in positive energy. Take at least two hours a week for YOURSELF so you don't get burned out!

Lailah from Manassas, VA

I own multiple spirits and vessels; some have made themselves be known and others have not. Is there a way to know if there is a spirit residing in said vessel? Another question I have is, is there a way to see/feel/communicate with spirits? If so, how do you do it? Opening third eye?

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

Dear Lailah,

Uh... how do you own "multiple spirits?" Did you purchase them from a dealership? What do you mean by vessels? Are these vessels to hold spirits? Do they already hold spirits?


If you really want to see/feel/communicate with spirits, then I recommend you read So You Want to be a Medium: A Down to Earth Guide by Rose Vanden Eynden.

James from Clovis, CA

How does someone know if they are a witch? I feel that I can do spells and other things that are related to witchcraft. I've also become sensitive to people's energy. One last question: do witches have a preferred color that they like? I can't figure out why I like green so much.

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

Dear James,

Unfortunately, being a witch isn't like you see in the movies. It's not done to you, not forced on you, or magickally zapped at you. 
Someone will know they are a witch because they have CHOSEN to be one.

Witches don't have a preferred color; individual people do.  Green is the color for prosperity, grounding, connection to family, job stability, and elemental earth.

HP from Austin, TX

Will a salt bath cancel out spell work? I recently did some spell work and I do not want to affect it. I'm just letting go of past things in my life that do not serve me anymore.

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

Dear HP,

Nope... putting salt in your bath will not cancel out any past, present, or future spell work.

Sabrina from Flint, MI

I met my soul mate June 23, 2007, we fell in love fast and married August 13, 2009. His mom was so mad she didn't even come to the wedding. Shortly after, she said she was going to cast spells and did anything and everything to cause us to divorce. She promised we would divorce. Well, we divorced August 9, 2011. I was cursed. She was happy. He was cursed, too, but men react differently than women. He is now with another girl. He claims he is happy and they are engaged. His mom loves her probably because she's the same age as his mom. I babble on. Is there anything I can do to break the spell and get my soulmate back? Please, please help me. I love him and I know we are meant to be together. That spell needs to be broken.

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

Dear Sabrina,

Leave well enough alone, honey. Your ex monster in-law has a firm hold on her son and he seems to enjoy it. Even if you and your "soul mate" got back together, you'd still have to deal with the M O T H E R.


But I know you aren't going to listen to me. So buy Dorothy Morrison's book Utterly Wicked. I'm sure you'll find a number of spells in there that will help you out.

Daniel from Tuscon, AZ

I have a request that a witch would call me at ###-###-####. Let me hear you tell me some sexual desires you have, and let me hear you getting off. However you would let me experience that, by talking or just the sounds of your p*ssy getting nice and wet.

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

Dear Daniel,

I should release your actual phone number to all of my readers so they could call you at 3:00 am, scream like a banshee in your ear, and hang up.


This disrespectful, rude, perverted, dumb ass "question" was sent to a powerful witch... not some cheap whore.

P.S.
I'm gonna send some karma your way real soon, little boy.

Green from Europe

Hello, I'm pretty sure I'm being attacked by evil spirits. They're gone now, but left a mark on my health which I still have to deal with, and my love life. This happens often, especially when I cannot ground, meditate, and do my magick to protect myself and family. Lately because we are working in the house, I do not have my studio to perform rituals and work, for I must tell you, I am an artist. Well, I am desperate but for sure not crazy. I cannot tell you what I've been through in life. I cannot talk to anybody because I don't want to drag my family or friends into these matters. I love them, you see. What to do? I am so tired and I feel like giving up... Thank you.

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

Dear Green,

If what you say is true, then you need to banish the evil spirits. Please read my response to Brittany from Las Vegas for instructions.

David from Suffolk, VA

Years ago, I joined a Christian cult that practices shunning. There is no way to leave it without losing your family. The main headquarters and local church keeps records of its members. It would be quite problematic for them to no longer be in possession of these records. They cannot officially shun members without proof of them being a member. There is no independent thinking against their teachings. The leaders basically schedule the members' lives in slaving for their cause. Members out of sight are hounded about what they've been doing, and why they aren't in church. The family members are convinced to shun family that leave, or kicked out until they return. Family will be kicked out if they maintain contact with an ousted family member. It is a no win situation for anyone wishing to leave. I've contacted others in the craft who have told me nothing could done. Yet others are saying magic can be of service to me. I'd like some insight into whether magic can be of service, or not.

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

Dear David,

There really isn't anything that could or should be done. The members of the cult are making a conscious decision to shun their family members who decide to leave. Although it may be painful for everyone involved, it is still a decision individual people are making.

Bethany from Peterborough, Canada

Hello.  I believe a certain woman put a break up spell on me and my boyfriend, and I don't know how to fix things between us again. This woman was my boyfriend's mentor when he was learning magick, and she is a very experienced witch. I've heard from my boyfriend that she was planning on starting her own coven. Since my boyfriend started learning from her in October, she has been constantly suggesting to him that we should break up (I should also mention my boyfriend and me were dating long distance - him being in Alberta and me living in Ontario). In December, when I came to visit him for the holidays, I asked how his training with her was going. He said he broke things off with her because she tried to have sex with him, and throughout the holidays, he was still texting her. I explained to him I wasn't comfortable with that and asked that he tell her he doesn't want to hear from her again. The day after I got back from Alberta, I noticed an unexplained change in my emotions. I had an unexplained depression, and I constantly thought about hurting myself in really horrible ways. It turned out that day my boyfriend broke things off with her, and it was only when my boyfriend received an 18 page letter from his mentor in the mail that he found out she had put a curse on me. My boyfriend broke the curse on me, but three weeks later we had a huge break up and he doesn't want anything to do with me. He has no desire to get back together with me even though our relationship was very serious. We were both very serious about getting married when we could afford it. It's been two months since me and him have broken up, and I've heard from him that he has started talking to his mentor again. He's even let her come over to his condo (when she brings alcohol), and he knows that her intentions with him are purely sexual.

I just feel at a loss as to what to do because my whole life feels like its been uprooted. Each time I try to work things out with him, he wants to have no part in it.

I'm not looking for revenge on that woman. I just wish she could leave both me and my beloved alone so that we can have back the life we've always talked about. I wish that my ex's heart would be softened, and that he'd be willing to give what we had a chance again.

I'm not very experienced in witchcraft myself, but I do try to learn and grow from what I can find in books or online. Please help me.

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

Dear Bethany,

Why would you want such a weak-willed person in your life? If he really was your "soul mate" then he would have severed his relationship with that woman after he heard she had "cursed" you.  He sounds like a waste of flesh to me.  
But it's your life and if you want to get back together with a man you can't trust, then far be it for me to keep soul mates apart.

Dorothy Morrison's Utterly Wicked is a book you'll need to buy ASAP. I'm sure you'll find a number of spells in there that will help you achieve your goals.

If you performed a "death spell" then I'm pretty certain you should be more afraid of karma coming to get you.

Chris from Occoquan, VA

Ever since I was 10 years old, I've been living two lives. One during the day as a normal Wiccan, and the other at night as a demon literally going to hell. But I don't remember anything from what happens during the night when I'm down there. I've only had some very short memories, like being trained to fight, and one time when we were in a war, demons versus demons. We were the ones that were attacked by surprise, and I'm one of the few that survived. I've come across other people during the day that I've met down there and that live the same life as I do, so I know that it really happened. I'm trying to remember what else happened down there that I don't remember, and I want to remember what else is going to happen when I go down there again from now on. Any advice?

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

Dear Chris,

I'm not sure how to answer this question. Wiccans don't believe in demons because demons - and hell - are a Christian concept.


If you want to improve your memory, but a piece of jewelry made of fluorite. Fluorite is a fantastic gemstone for memory retention!

Jade from Colorado Springs, CO

Sometimes I have dreams that tell me of what is yet to come. I was wondering, does that have something to do with me being a witch?

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

Dear Jade,

The dreams you are having are premonitions and don't necessarily have anything to do with you being a witch. Premonitions are a psychic gift from the Divine and are bestowed on any person despite sex, race, or religion.


Blessed be!
