Magick and Spell Casting: an uncomfortable thought

Recommended Posts

 

I love Buddy Christ, it's ssssoooo funny!

 

My hunny's platoon buddy has him tattooed on his entire back, which is a bit much, but funny nonetheless

 

I have a little figurine of him, abt 3'' tall, that I got in the late 90s when the movie was made, I love View Askew films. All the characters are hilarious; Carlin, Chris Rock, Salma Hayek, and the guy that played the Seraphim, idk the actor's name, but his dry delivery still cracks me up years later.

 

Pure comedic bliss.

The guy from Harry Potter and Robin Hood? Alan Rickman is his name I believe.

The tattoo? That's some crazy shit! All over his back?

Yup. And he is a stone-faced, goofy fuck too so it's completely unexpected for him to have a tat like this. He was a co-worker of mine for a while before he enlisted.

 

 

He had no clue whatsoever what 'darker' magic may be used for by some of us. My trade in revenge and justice magic is taking care of rapists, and such lovely individuals.

 

Pure prejudice.

 

 

Yes, I completely agree, Aurelian. Part of the reason I partake in the darker arts is for the sole purpose of reaping justice, whether on a noble scale such as you mentioned or on a more personal level. I love it, do it for living in the physical world and seek it out in this fashion as well. I have a personal stake in wanting to protect and serve, and I hold a deep, white hot hatred for the rapist. Any bit of punishment doled out to these fucks I appreciate because they deserve more than what they receive for a jail sentence, which is a pittance in comparison to the harm caused to society.

 

The OP did not take into account, as Travsha stated, that many members of this forum practice the darker arts, myself included. I also am weirded out by his name, but not surprised at the contradictions between the name and the choice to totally bag on us in a very Xtian, dogmatic way, whether on purpose or out of ignorance.

 

I did kind of feel like I was about to be put on a dunking stool. Just sayin'.

I missed all the fun also, as this was posted before I even joined the site. I do have some thoughts on the original post, though. I don't know about physics, but I do agree there is a price to pay in witchcraft. Whether it comes from ourselves, or is borrowed from other sources (natural items, "charged" magical tools, etc.) the power to manipulate natural energy has to come from somewhere. TANSTAAFL.

 

As for the discussion about the Wiccan Rede, I don't need a rede to know I shouldn't indiscriminately harm any more than I need a commandment to know I shouldn't indiscriminately kill. But sometimes the intent is to harm. I'll leave the "right" and "wrong" of harming someone for the individual witch to determine. But I know from my own experience that some people need harming and I have no qualms about paying the price (karma or whatever you want to call it) for harming these people.

Crow, I have read this at quite an opportune time..... This may seem strange but I have never intentionally set out to harm anyone. However, at this moment in my life I have encountered someone who I really feel needs to learn a lesson. Having never done this before, I am obviously apprehensive but I feel more strongly than ever about the events that have lead me to want to act in this instance. I have sat on this for 2 weeks in the hope that I could just put it to the back of mind and get on with things but even after trying to cool off I still feel the same.

 

Any advice would be most welcomed!

2 weeks, imho, is not long at all.

 

You may feel and think differently in 2 months.

 

Intense emotions tend to be blinding. With time, patience and introspection - clarity can surface, offering other options and more effective long-term remedies.

 

 

Considering outcomes before casting a spell is very useful (and wise) -- especially before raising the left-hand.

 

I've been taught that once one decides to take this path, it's a step you can't take back.... and, one is permanently changed by it. (much like losing ones virginity -- with victims)

Thanks Nikki, I really appreciate what you have to say. I'm not an impulsive person and my usual philosophy is to move on and forget about it. I don't hold grudges and I'm not vindictive. There is just something with this particular situation/individual that does not sit right with me.

 

I will wait though. I don't relish the idea of having a permanent connection to this person even if it is hex shaped!!!

 

Thanks for your advice.

I do spells of Justice when needed, so it is the wrong doer that is punishing themselves. There are no consequences for me because I have done nothing but defend myself.

Well, that seems like an awesome take on things. I can't believe I hadn't even considered it.

Justice Spells are amazing, Natty. They work in ways that defy imagination !!!

 

If you need any ideas, just ask. There are a few very creative casters here who try will help. Plus, the forum is ripe with this sort of subject matter, if you search.

 

I sooooo understand the frustration of 'sitting' with something so troublesome, as I am not vindictive, spiteful or take pleasure in harming others, either... but, sometimes you aren't left with many options. It's good to have a clear head before moving forward, especially when confronted with 'new' territory. One can bypass messy magical entanglements and much regret down the line.

 

Good luck and happy crafting !! Go get 'em.

You are most welcome.

 

Candle & name paper, and mirror box Spells make good Justice Spells (I use shiny side of tin foil facing the inside of the box...much easier to work with than actual mirrors).

Nikki and Autumn Moon -Thank you so much for your help. It is frustrating you're right. I'm going to give it some thought as talking about it on here has been quite cathartic in itself. Perhaps it's not worth burning my brain cells over after all ????.

That's called a Penance Malediction.

 

I fully believe that anyone Working within the realms of Justice has specific rules and consequences for those that do not Claim their portion of Responsibility in a given situation.

 

The consequences are lessened but not eradicated. Except for those that are enacting Vengeance under the guise of Justice. Whether consciously aware of it or not.

 

There are certain things I've been sitting on for almost a year now. 2 weeks is barely enough time to lick your wounds and it still falls under the 'lashing out' time period.

 

Like I said, these are my personal beliefs. No one has to agree with them.

Ya know, RR.. that's a really good point.

 

The Justice Spells I've done for others (third party) manifest beautifully.... however, I can totally see how 'back splash' is an issue when it's directed at someone you're connected to in some emotional way.

 

By considering what I may have done to contribute to the situation, I could construct a more effective spell.

 

Would taking your share of personal responsibility prior to casting help to eliminate potential back splash? If so, how might one go about that?

 

Any advice for the first timer?

 

(Also, I wish to add that my mind is working on aspects of responsibility -- not 'victim' bashing or blaming)

I've found that claiming my responsibilities in a situation can help to remove the 'rose colored glasses'. A recent personal example - after my father died, my stepbrother and I had a beautiful moment. It didn't last long. A scorpion's a scorpion. I was the dipshit that forgot that. I allowed myself to believe that a lying thief may have changed over the years. He married a good woman - that's his only saving grace. Anyways, I was hurt, I felt betrayed. When I was cleaning out my Dad's house, I gave him his Mom's stuff that he thought was lost forever (big family drama - ugh) - he took a lot of my Father's things, too. When I went back down to the house with the moving truck to bring the rest of it home - half of it was missing.

 

Sure, I could've lashed out. I could've called it justice. I can still can. He stole from me. And my dead Dad.

" No one has to agree with them".

 

Good, because my experience(s) are the total opposite of yours :tongue:

 

I don't do any Justice spell that is not totally deserved by who has wronged me or mine. The wrongs they did to me go back to them, the wrongs they attempt to do, go back to them without reaching me or mine. The more they give, the more they get back. I have done nothing wrong, they are doing it to themselves = no, none, nyet, nein, consequences for me or mine...just more peaceful and satisfied living...and that I'll take.

 

That is basically why I do not curse someone...to avoid possible consequences, with the operative word being 'possible'. There have been those on this board, that say they do not get any consequences back even from cursing. I guess 'self-fulfilling prophecy may operate on this subject.

And I'm really glad that you shared your experiences. It's so cool that we can play around and talk. :)

If I had a dollar for every time I've heard that LOL. (I'm sorry, I couldn't help it - you left yourself wide open for that one :nana: )

 

But seriously, I understand what you're saying. I'm sure you gave due consideration to whatever Workings you've done. Every practitioner should.

 

Currents of spells aside (ie:justice, love, etc), and turn toward a more technical conversation you have different types of spellwork blending together beautifully here. You've got the 'Eye for an eye :atoast: :blobfire: ', the I'm rubber - you're glue' (which is a classic :cool_witch: ), the return to sender in real time (nice touch :atoast: )

 

The wrongs they did to me go back to them, the wrongs they attempt to do, go back to them without reaching me or mine. The more they give, the more they get back. I have done nothing wrong, they are doing it to themselves = no, none, nyet, nein, consequences for me or mine...just more peaceful and satisfied living...and that I'll take.

I suppose that depends on how one decides and defines what's a consequence, what's a back splatter (some things are just messy) and what's beyond what they're willing call payment/ sacrifice/ insert word here. Generally.

 

There are some curses that are so very warranted that to not do them could destroy a Witch. Those are the ones that suffer no backlash. But the consequences are severe. That level of Soul Healing is extreme. It changes a person. It can destroy a person. Usually both.

 

Casual cursing is a different conversation.

I think consequences can often be handled, directed elsewhere, or avoided.

Putting the blame on someone else, or have 'something' else operate on your behalf are example of ways of doing this. In Italiak folk magic and witchcraft is common to blame a curse on a particular spirit. I think we've discussed this elsewhere too.

Hi guys,

 

I just thought I'd update you on the situation. I was in the supermarket yesterday and bumped into said person. Out of the blue I got a full apology and the remorse was very real. I hadn't done a thing in real magical terms apart from meditate on things. I guess that was enough to send out the energy that was needed.

 

Thank you again for all your guidance. It was most appreciated!

That goes contrary to personal responsibility. Do you not find that sooner or later it comes back to you in some way...I would think so.
