The History of Black Magic

Voodoo is the best example of ancient magick. At a time when people could only communicate long distance by the use of drums, the herb healers and witch doctors of the tribes came up with a healing method that could be communicated only through the spirit. This magick was very efficient and soon was used not only for healing, but also for hurting others. As mentioned earlier, Magick is just a tool. The person using it and influencing it is the one who makes this magick good or evil.

There are evil people and good people in this world. As people realized the power of magick, they started using it to effect revenge, jealousy, anger, sickness, etc. Little did they know of the devastating effects of using magick to hurt others. Maybe they even died without realizing the return of their karma (actions).

It was in India that the principle of Karma took shape. Hindus still follow magickal prayers and request the assistance of multiple deities for many rituals. Black magick did not thrive in India because everyone is taught lessons on the law of Karma at an early age. There still exists ways in which to hurt others using magick. But the ones who perform such magick also get ready for the punishment which they know occurs sooner or later.

Black magick spread from Africa to the islands in the West Indies and to South America. It merged with some of the magickal cultures and even Catholic principles to form other forms of witchcraft such as Santeria. Candles were incorporated around this time. Later this form of magick spread to North America, where it is called Hoodoo.

None of these magickal traditions are harmful by nature, and all of the magickal traditions may be used to evoke harm in others. The rituals in some of these traditions included spells using human body fluids, hair, nails, blood, etc and although this made the magick even more powerful, it scared a lot of people who didn’t know why these were being used and for what purpose.

Menstrual blood and Semen along with sweat, spit, placenta, etc are used for certain rituals. The very mention of these biological parts may evoke fear in a lot of people.

Sometimes the rituals are performed at midnight near crossroads and may involved birds, animals, blood, animal organs, etc. Many of these rituals have been replaced by visualizing the above items using the mind. For example, instead of a black pigeon, a witch can get a black candle or make a black stuffed doll and assign it the identity of a black pigeon. For ritual purposes, they are no different.

There is no reason to worry about black magick. If you think your life has been affected by black magick, why not try a spell to protect yourself and to send back the energies where they came from? This way, you will not be hurt and the person who performed any evil spell against you will be facing more than a triple dose of its after effects.

Brightest Blessings.
