The following are actual questions that are laced in the comments on this blog from various pages. You would think some of the answers to these questions would be obvious to the people asking them, but it’s often hard for people caught up in negative circumstances, or a negative frame of mind, to view their situation honestly and to clearly see what’s needed to fix it. I’m delighted that people feel comfortable enough at Magickal Connections to ask what they want to ask. I sincerely try to think of the best answer, the most helpful answer, the most needed answer possible to each and every individual leaving a question. If anyone else has some good advice to pass along to these people, please do so with a comment. Fresh insight is always appreciated! *Note: I’m posting the questions unedited, as they appear in the original post.
#1 ~ Greeting Queen Amythyst, first of all I think your presence is so beautiful, well I have a trial that is suppose to start the 23rd of this month. It has been going for at least a year now and they have charged me with felon poss. of a firearm. Well I’m tired of going back and forth (which I know the universe is working) so I simply want the court cases to either disappear or for the case to get dismissed/not guilty. I have been to jail before and it’s something i never want to do again. I’m considering the beef tongue spell for the outcome I’m looking for along with something to help on me not ever going to jail again. If there’s anything else that you think you could shine some light on please feel free! Thanks in advance
My Reply ~
Just a quick note here before we get to the specifics… If you don’t want to ever go to jail again, one sure way to prevent this from happening is not to break the law. I know, this seems so obvious, but for some reason the universe insisted I say it.
One word of caution, and that is that the universe, the laws of karma, they all work towards justice and proper endings. There are spells out there that should not be cast if you’re actually guilty, because the energy will come back to bite you. Think about this before you resort to spell casting for this situation. If you’re actually not guilty, then go for it with a clean conscience and pure intentions.
This is my little light, and I hope it’s shining! Best wishes for your future.
#2 ~ My ex has decided to just come back into my life, use and discard my body and emotions and I was looking for a binding spell. I wanted to make sure #3 was the most appropriate for the occasion. I’m tired of him popping up whenever he feels like and then disappear like nothing ever happened.
My Reply ~
Excuse me…Your ex “decided” to come back into your life? You sound as though you don’t realize that You have a choice here, that You can make a decision about whether you want this individual to come back into your life or not. Spells are okay, and I’m not saying that you don’t need one, or could not successfully use one. But before we resort to spell casting, lets take a good look at the situation and what you could do mundanely to correct it.
If you’re tired of this man popping up in your life and using you: 1) Cut all ties, and I mean all ties. Sometimes, even without knowing it, we might send mixed signals to an ex… I’m done with you– but it’s okay if you still call and I’ll talk to you, or it’s okay if we still see each other occasionally, or it’s okay for you to interfere in my life. CUT ALL TIES 2) If your ex does not take this finality well, or still tries contacting you, and you’ve exhausted all efforts to stop this, like changing your phone number, blocking him on social sites, etc.; it’s time to get a restraining order and make it official. 3) Stop allowing someone to control you; find your inner strength; know that you are an adult, not a toy for this individual to play with at will.
First try the mundane way. If you do, and you’ve done all the important things you have to do to keep this individual away and they still wind up in your life…then pull out the magick.
#3 ~ PLEASE HELP ….. PLEASE!!!!
I’m Cuban we only do spells for health,wealth,luck,and cleanses. unable to go to Cuba I Was desperate So I got help from a very old Mexican lady we know to help bring me and my hubby together that PEOPLE SPENT YEARS doing voodoo to break us up. She took me to Bury our names on paper, birthdays,pics,and his socks in a grave yard with pins and very colorful ribbons i HEARD it’s for separation. Is it true please help.
My Reply ~
First, Since you said that you’re Cuban and can’t do this type of spell (a love spell to reunite a couple), I’m trying to wrap my mind around the difference between just doing a love spell on your own, or participating with someone else to do a love spell. In any case, the fact that you participated with this lady means– you did the spell, honey. Second, how do you know that people were doing voodoo to break you up? Most of the time, people involved in this kind of activity are very discreet. And more often than not, when a couple’s relationship is just done and over, it’s just done and over naturally, all on it’s own. Not all relationships are meant to last forever.
About the spell, I’ve never heard of it. And again, trying to figure out why you would think that someone who did a spell for you (or with you) would be working a spell for the opposite outcome that you intended.
Beware of paranoia.
#4 ~ I have a question with binding. If someone is binding you would you have a dream off someone cutting you ooen and takes just your internal organs and sews you up. I also am an angelic being thats been reincarnated.
My Reply ~
I don’t do dream interpretations. The symbolism involved is so unique and personal to every individual that it’s hard to say what a dream like this might mean. It could mean that you’re afraid of showing your true inner-self to most people, or it could mean you watched a slasher movie before bed. Hard to say. I would say that if someone bound you, you would no longer be able to do, say, or indulge in whatever it is that they bound you from. That’s the whole purpose behind a binding.
#5 ~ Will burning these candles one timework do i have to burn them. Again suppose they turn black while they are burning do i to burn them a gain ehere does i get these herbs from can i put more than one person name in the can dle do i buried the glass to [*Note: this question pertains to a spell on the “Command & Compel” page at this blog… https://wytchymystique.com/spells/command-compel-spells/ ]
My Reply ~
I’m killing two birds with one stone here ~ The answer is yes to both questions. When bringing something to you, keep the remnants from your spell in a safe place, or even in a place that is fitting the intention, that is the “stuff” from a love spell under your bed; a mojo bag filled with the remnants from a money spell in your purse; etc. Second question: not only is it okay to do a spell more than once on the same person for a different request; it’s also okay to repeat a spell on occasion, especially when you’d like to add a different twist to the outcome, for the same request…. also, I don’t really think the word “request” is quite right in these situations, but since this is how you worded your question, this is how I answered it, thinking it would be easier for you to understand. A spell by no means is a “request”. When you cast a spell you are deliberately and willfully manipulating energy in the universe to manifest a change, to move energy, and it certainly will. The word “request” implies that you are asking for something.
#6 ~ Is this spell white magic? [*Note: this question pertains to a spell on the “Command & Compel” page at this blog… https://wytchymystique.com/spells/command-compel-spells/ ]
My Reply ~
Depending upon the magickal practitioner you ask, you’d probably get a variety of different answers. Even in the occult world there are extremists at both ends. There are the fluffy bunnies who are ever in fear of getting their feet wet and doing some ballsy magic that’s got some in-your-face punch to it because they might offend someone or something, and at the other end of the spectrum are people who love the dark aspect of everything, the darker and more warped the better, and they are always searching for something darker. Personally, I would say this magic falls in the shady gray area. Follow your own moral guides. Cast at your own discretion.
#7 ~ Hello I am just curious about doing the command spell. I watched another witch video and she said to use the Black candle for yourself and the white candle for the person you want to command, but you’re saying do the opposite. So now I am really confused. Also can this command spell be used for a group of people or a entity, ie a company. No one specific person, name unknown.
My Reply ~
“Also can this command spell be used for a group of people or a entity, ie a company. No one specific person, name unknown.”
Yes to all of the above. And to reiterate what I sent in the email– If you ask 5 witches how to do one particular spell, you’re going to get 5 different answers. Spell crafting is like cooking, and everyone does things just a bit differently and uniquely, suiting to them and their energy and their associations. As I said, “It’s okay if my potato salad is a little different than your potato salad. I’m betting that it’s all good.”
#8 ~ Does good magic really exist?
My Reply ~
Of course it exists. It exists in every healing spell, every spell to bring positive change to someone’s life. It exists in the form of unexplained miracles and connection with the Divine. Good magick can be found everywhere, even in the prayers of people who don’t believe in magick…It’s all “Magick”, honey.
It’s time to pull this little gem from the pages of my Big Black Book. Not for me, mind you, at the moment, but for a friend who is in need of this magick. There is nothing worse, nothing more vile, nothing more evil or black, than a gossip. My definition of this Cretan: someone who deliberately makes up stories and information about someone that will harm their reputation, their business, their personal relationships, or any other aspect of their life. Yes, I’ve used these spells myself, back in the day, when they were needed. Yes, they work; they certainly did for me. And yes, I’m a nice person, dammit, and nice people have a right to defend themselves, especially with sneaky back-stabbing liars and gossips. Magick may be the only defense you have.
So I’m blowing the dust off these delicious binding spells and posting them here for my friend and anyone else in need ~
Binding a Gossip
Most of you reading this has, at one time or another, been the victim of malicious and false rumors, innuendos, or flat out bald face lies. This phenomena used to be contained to the narrow crowded hallways of junior and senior high schools, the quiet corridors of office buildings, the loud backrooms of break-rooms, local neighborhood cafes and bars…etc. With the advent of the internet, instant communication, and access that was previously unheard of, this interesting little social oddity is becoming more prevalent than ever, easier to manipulate, to spread, and much more destructive because of the wider audience and the hit and run methods available to anyone with a computer, or cell phone. However, even in the 21st century, gossip still travels the old fashioned way: by word of mouth.
And what makes gossip so popular is our naïve desire to believe what we hear, regardless of the source, whether facts check out, whether it makes sense, or even whether it is believable– the more fantastic and incredible the story, in fact, the quicker we are to accept it, or to eagerly pass it along.
There may not be much the mundane victim of gossip can do about it, other than an expensive and time consuming lawsuit perhaps, if the perpetrator of this brouhaha is sullying a public reputation, damaging a business, or causing serious complications in the victim’s life.
But there is something a Witch can do about a gossip. She can bind the mouth of the one who is spreading untruths & fantastic stories. She can tie their tongue and still their voice. She can throw the negative energy they are generating back upon the perpetrator, where it will fester and putrefy, to destroy the hooligan from the inside out.
I have used the following spells personally, and I can tell you that they worked for me, often in explosive and unpredictable ways which left me open-mouthed and in awe of this magick. Karma has a way of stepping in to handle any injustice of life, and I have no qualms about stepping into the shadows to grab the light and use this energy to kick-ass. This is one of the benefits of being a gray witch.
If you have the magickal ability, control of your energies, determination and purpose, and if you’ve just plain had enough…you’ll find these spells to be just what you need.
For serious situations, use all three of these methods in tandem:
Purchase a small hand mirror, one large enough for a small picture to fit within its center. Take a photo of the target and cut it out; lay it in the center of the mirror…vent now at the target, let all the negative energy that you feel for this person roil and boil to the surface, spit in his/her face if that is your inclination.
When you have spent yourself expressing your anger…sprinkle over this picture goofer dust, graveyard dirt, banishing powder. You could also add cayenne pepper, or any other herb/ingredient that you have successfully used in the past or that is linked to hexes/curses.
Now, encircle this picture with it’s mound of maliferous ingredients with a circle of salt– sealing the target within.
Find a safe place to keep this charm, perhaps beneath a dresser; and cover it with a bowl if you have pets in the house so that they won’t stumble upon it. Every once in a while, perhaps in conjunction with a waning moon phase, pull the mirror carefully out of its hiding place and re-sprinkle it with a bit of the powders; check the seal of salt and add to it if need be to keep the circle strong…each time you bring it out– throw your emotions at this individual.
In addition– you can create a crude poppet, pin a photo of the face of the target on the face of the doll. Carefully, slowly, deliberately– stick straight pins through the mouth in a neat little row…rant, rave, spit, pound, stomp, rage. Throw your hatred and anger at this figure, then cover it in a black cloth and place it away in a secret spot.
The Witch’s Bottle:
You can also create a witch’s bottle…fill an empty bottle with pins, razor blades, shards of glass, needles, rusty nails– and a photo of the target. Add your urine to it. Close the bottle and seal it with black wax. Put it in a safe place and every once in a while, again with the waning of the moon, bring it out and shake it up— visualize the sharp objects in the bottle cutting the gossip, and the ability to gossip, from the target.
As I’ve said…
I’ve used these spells myself and was quite amazed at how well they work. But the thing is that this is an ‘ongoing’ thing, keep it up. Remember to check the mirror, less the circle of salt somehow get shifted about and create an opening. Don’t let the target sit in the bottle without bothering it now and then. Bring out the poppet, look into the target’s eyes and vent your rage ever so often…don’t let them forget, and don’t let them rest.
The energy will build.
