Are Magick Hexes, Spells, Curses and Charms Real

White Magic

I was introduced to the world of magic by my stepmother, Peggy Best, who practices Wicca. She calls her charms and concoctions, "Blessings," and I have been a witness to some pretty coincidental outcomes, as a result of these so-called "blessings." The accuracy and timing of these occurrences, seemed to me to precisely coincide with her spells. I am also fully aware that the outcome of these blessings may have been my imagination running a muck. Still though, I am convinced that there are certain truths, behind what she was conjuring up and practicing.

As many of us already know, the ancient Egyptians were quite crafty at magic. In the Gospel of Peter, while he was in Rome, Peter and his "new religion" are challenged to a magical duel by a Roman Pagan believer. The duel of supernatural power goes on for quite sometime, before Peter is able to conjure up a prayer- powerful enough to defeat the opposing Roman using Pagan magic.

Almost every culture on this planet, in one way or another, has practiced a form of magic. Even America's Native American Indians, called upon the spirits of dead people to help them see into the future, with remarkable accuracy. It has also been a long practice of the Haitian peoples to include "Spiritual Magick," in their daily ritual Voodoo lifestyle. The word Voodoo literally means,"To be placed under the influence of a spell or curse; bewitch."

I have never really dabbled in magic so to say, thus I cannot claim to be an expert on the subject matter. I have written a few articles on the subject matter however, based off of what little I have learned from my stepmother. I have currently published a few articles on magic; one such hub teaches people how to charge a candle for a spell, and the other article is about casting a magic spell, specifically designed for getting a new job. I think it is safe to say that there is "something" truly magical out there. It possibly could just be a realm or spiritual world, where expelled energy goes to and comes from, in which people like Peggy, have the ability to harness at times.

Enhancing the reality of an everyday occurrences, is what people do who practice religion. Only in the world of magic, nature is used as the influential force behind the alternative reality. I touch on this subject matter in my Christian Reincarnation and Spirit Stalker articles. What I do not talk about is the possibility that magic is a viable resource and very much a part of everyday society. Whose to say that there is not something out there, designed to help humans to do either good or harm?

There is a significant difference between the delicate lines of Black and White Magic. As their colors suggest, one is said to be harmful and evil, while the other is supposed to be pure and good. White Magic truly focuses on the power of nature, positive energy, and goodness found in oneself. White Magic plays off the same ideology of that of Buddhism, Taoism, and Hindu. In these spiritual practices eBverything has a place, and an equal and opposing reaction to it. While each one of these practices are uniquely dressed in spiritual properties, what is quite convincing to the naked eye are their miracles, which appear to be "magical." My guess is that we all have a spiritual power-supply, hidden deep within ourselves. It is because of the intangible ingredient of this energy, which enable us to "will" something into being. It is the very same sort of energy that people under great distress are capable of acquiring "faith" through prayer. This tapped energy is better known as the "power of prayer." For whatever reasons as to how or why it works, is beyond my comprehension, but it does appear to be the same source of energy. Just the other day I was asked on one of my magic articles, if the magic spell for getting a job worked for me. Yes, indeed it did work for me, or at least I think it did. I ended up working for that company, in which I casted the magic spell to acquire for approximately ten years. So was it the magic spell that got me the job? Or, could it have been that I was the most qualified for the job? Who knows..., but one thing is for certain, we reap what we sow.

I don't know how you guys feel comfortable with that, especially if you really did curse someone. I almost died from it, but then again who would want to do that. Im still trying to find out how to end or send back evil spirits where they came from so it will not harm me my family friends and people. And if someone created a dark spirit how to you get rid of it for good.

There is no black nor white in magik.

@jreuter, that line clearly means that being found to engage in those activities is bad for your health due to the closed mindedness of the general populace and of course the people in power... the church. 'Let no one be found...' also means: hide them.

Magick is nothing more then intention and the will to make things happen through positive thought process. Magick is just the Pagan form of a Christian miracle. I have been Wiccan for about 13 years or so and I do not feel I have lost my soul. Allowing myself to understand all religions leaves me more open minded and willing to love those around me regardless of who they are... Beautiful hub dear, interesting background information... growing up around so many religions I'm sure has done you a world of good.

Hey J, Hey John- yeah I'm aware of what the bible says. That is why I mention including the lord, "More importantly though, my knees will probably be bruised, from this 230 pd body- kneeling in the goodness of the Lord." from my last sentence.

What I was mostly trying to express, is that I don't so much believe in magick- but I personally believe in the power of positive energy. And sometimes people need a rabbits foot or a good luck spell, to help them channel that energy. Being one who owns a rabbit foot, I usually pray to God and Christ first, but might give my purple rabbits foot a quick rub, when I need a little good luck.

Whatever makes a person channel the positive current within their bodies, for me anyways- is okay. Thanks for commenting guys! Glad to see you around. Cheers.

You do realize, I hope, that dabbling in sorcery and magic is expressly forbidden (for good reason) by the Bible. At the risk of sounding "Preachy" I refer you to Deuteronomy 18:10-11- "Let no one be found among you who...practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead (NIV)."

Please don't misunderstand me, I'm not here to judge you or condemn you, but I truly believe you are dabbling in things you should most definitely NOT be dabbling in. Christ alone is enough for the believer, not spells or magic. It is clear that the "power" of these things (White or Black) does not come from God, but Satan. Please consider these words, and I wish you the best.

Interesting family background, and possibly a slightly confused spirituality?

I always look to find the source of any spiritual instance, there are only two, Christ and Satan, I make sure I choose Christ!
