Have you ever ask yourself the question Am I Cursed? If you have you’re not alone. Over the years, I have had times when I felt I was cursed, things would be going bad with jobs, people, my car, you name it. Some say oh it’s just a string of bad luck and yes that can happen, it happens to all of us… But is it just “Bad Luck”?

I set out on a quest to find a way to tell if I was just having a bout of bad luck or something more. I said to myself how would I know if I’m having a bad day or if I had pissed off someone in some way that I may or may not have even known I had done. Did I turn down a panhandler in the WalMart parking lot that asks me for change not knowing they possed the power to make my life miserable for not complying? Maybe an old girlfriend put a hex on me over jealousy and hard feelings about a breakup?

There are many ways you might befall a curse, but two of the most often talked about is the Evil Eye or a Spell by a Witch.

It would be nice if there were an App for this but sadly Not! I did some research and found that for over 3000 years people believe some people can just glance at them using their “Evil Eye” and put a curse on them. This sounds far-fetched but here is just one thing I found, out of thousands, about the Evil Eye:

Folklorist Alan Dundes, in his edited volume “The Evil Eye: A Casebook” notes that “the victim’s good fortune, good health, or good looks — or unguarded comments about them — invite or provoke an attack by someone with the evil eye … Symptoms of illness caused by the evil eye include loss of appetite, excessive yawning, hiccups, vomiting and fever. If the object attacked is a cow, its milk may dry up; if a plant or fruit tree, it may suddenly wither and die.” By Benjamin Radford, Live Science Contributor 

If you think you are the recipient of the Evil Eye how can you be sure? You Can’t, at least not a 100% but from what I have gathered if you are experiencing things like your favorite pair of paints gets a stain on them and on your way to the dry cleaners a car passes and splashes water all over you and then when you pick up your freshly cleaned paints the bill is doubled from the last time you used this dry cleaner and then you put the pair of paints on to go out and as you come out of your home a dog out of nowhere grabs your paints leg and rips your paints apart and runs away (aside from the dog having glowing red eyes) you might want to start thinking back about who you might have wronged, and no this does not have to be a little gypsey women. 🙂

Once you have established that this might just be evil forces at work you will need to protect yourself, here are some ways:

  • This one should be used at all times, don’t piss people off.
  • Get and wear a Good Luck Charm. <Amazon Link
  • Ware and Amulet designed to ward off the Evil Eye.
  • Some believe Potions made with Garlic works well.

If none of this works maybe it is time for some professional help, and no not a shrink I mean seek out shamans, witch doctors, psychics or other spiritual healers to remove the curse.


Now, this is more my style of curse or hex… the Spell that causes harm to animate or inanimate objects.

Don’t get all in an uproar about the Wiccan Rede or the Three-fold Law, I’m talking Witchcraft as in Non-Wiccan. Because if you are practicing Wicca you should not be going around placing curses or hexes on anybody or anything, IMHO. 😉

Most often when we are talking about a curse performed by a Witch or other practitioner of magick we are talking about a “psychic curse”.  A psychic curse is when somebody has an invisible psychic energy hold on another person, and this happens more often then you might think.

Psychic Curses may be put on you or another person when you are in the presences of, in contact with, or involved with a controlling person, a negative person, a jealous person, a passive aggressive person, or any other unscrupulous type of person.

People like this will intentionally or unintentionally send negative energy towards you or someone else, programmed with their “negative” intentions, wishes, thoughts, or feelings, creating a psychic curse.

It is understandable that you would want to know if you are the subject of this type of magick spell, especially because of the effects it can have on your life. Because there is no psychic litmus test that will alert you to the presences of a curse any more than what I explained above in knowing if you are the recipient of the Evil Eye. You just have an unexplainable extream amount of bad stuff happening all around you or directed at you.

Of course for the most part and too alleviate some of your fears about being cursed 9 times out of 10 your just having a bit of bad luck, for the most part, because unless your health is compromised your will is a very powerful thing to overcome, and this type of magick is hard to do for any length of time and takes a toll on the person performing the spell.

Still, that is no consolation if you feel that you are being cursed, crossed, jinxed, hexed, spellbound, or bewitched. Following are some tell-tale signs that you may indeed have a problem to handle:

You have a lot of magickal friends with the capability of performing this type of magick. If this is the case it may not be as bad as you think, just because someone is a Witch (or claims to be one) doesn’t mean they possess the skill or motivation to influence you in a negative way. Also, most who have the power to do harmful magick is also usually adept enough to know better than to do so.

Ok, let us say all the signs point to a curse at work here.

Concentrate, little things happening will clue you into the nature of the spell and the direction it is coming from most of the time. When talking to someone in your social circle you may get a feeling of negative energy coming from this person even though they are smiling and talking as if they are your best friend.

You see, while some cowardly Witch may be able to curse you without your knowledge, the energy of the Universe is flowing all around us and connecting us in a way that cannot be hidden to the “magickly open” for very long.

Most powerful spell’s hinge on having access to the intended target (or their property). The best is a bit of hair, bodily fluids like blood, or a piece of clothing or jewelry, even a ballpoint pen— all classic ingredients in both good and bad spells. And if none of those are available a photograph of the target works in a pinch to make sure the nasty magick sticks to the right target.

These items most likely will be combined or linked into a poppet or candle connected to the target. Another way is to bury or hide the spell components at the target’s home or place of work. Look around is there anything added that was now there before and you did not bring it on your property.

Other signs of a curse or spell at work may come in your dreams, their energy can become tangled up with yours and cause you to dream of that person. Of course, you might dream of them for another reason, dreams can be triggered by other things like anxiety or attraction, etc. But they can also be a sign of psychic work.

Some witches use witchcraft all the time in their daily lives, rather than poppets or candles, they use powerful personal energy which is a lot more subtle. Subtle enough in fact that they do it right in front of you. The occult term is “Enthrallment“, or a more common term is charisma or persuasion and is used by Entharallers.

I bring up Enthrallers because interacting with them can make you feel as if you are under a spell. Enthrallers can work their magick by sapping your energy making you feel sick, or infusing you with bursts of their energy so you feel good. They are energy workers and not all of them are Witches. Some Enthrallers act like narcissistic or manipulative people and can be very pleasant at times until you uncover their secret. Fortunately, most of their influence is limited to their proximity to you.

If you are having thoughts, visions, or emotions that are not your own. These may be signs of a spell at work or mental illness both can seem the same so always rule out mental illness first. If voices or visions are telling you to hurt people or yourself, stop what you are doing and seek some professional help.

If you are still stumped, try doing a revealing or truth spell and ask for the truth to be shown. Just remember before you let your fear or anger take you over, consider the answers to the following questions without paranoia or distrust:

  • Does anyone have a reason to put a spell on me?
  • Do they have the ability to do so?
  • Do they have access to make it happen?

If you determine that you are cursed you do have options. You can stop this using a protection, reversal, reflection or a binding spell of your own. It is your choice to Defend yourself or Retaliate.


Blessings to all ~ Malrick
