Blood Magic

‘Blood magic’. conjures up all kinds of gothic images, doesn’t it? The very word ‘blood’ is a real attention-grabber. Combine it with words like ‘magic’, ‘ritual’, ‘spell’ or ‘rite’, and usually thoughts fly to human sacrifices on a stone altar dripping with dark red and other images that look like something straight out of a horror movie.

As usual, the fiction is much darker and more stirring than the reality of it. Yes, blood can be dangerous— both magically and mundanely. But fire can also be dangerous, no one would think to tell you not to use it to cook your meals. You just have to learn how to use it safely and properly.

The truth is, blood magic can be quite potent if you’re inclined to do it, and if you know what you’re doing. It should not be undertaken lightly, or carelessly; but it doesn’t deserve the ‘taboo’ stamp that many are quick to give it.

Using Blood in Magic and Spells

The Power of Blood

I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that blood is a powerful thing. This is something that is so embedded in us that we all understand it. Fear and awe of blood goes way back to our earliest human ancestors. The sight of that bright red fluid -- whether it was coming from an enemy or friend, your prey or yourself – got immediate attention. Blood is associated with such powerful concepts that some people can’t stand the sight of it, and might faint away if presented with too much. Hemophobia is the fear of blood.

Blood is associated with death: the slain warriors on the field, the victim of violence, the hunter’s prey all lay bloody in their final state. Blood is also associated with life: it’s part of the cycle of fertility that perpetuates life. If you lost too much blood, you would grow weak and die. If your blood is tainted, you will wither.

Blood is associated with pain: you see it when you stumble and fall, have an accident, or fight. Blood is also associated with passion: when you love doing something, when you are good at it, it’s ‘in your blood’. Someone you love, particularly family members, are your ‘blood’. Blood connects you to things, or others. Even if you don’t know someone, you can empathize with them, your ‘heart bleeds for them’. Blood is passion, it’s connection, it’s raw emotion.

Blood is life. It courses through your body delivering oxygen and nutrients to every part of you. Blood is energy—when you push yourself, your heart pounds and your pulse races as your blood flows even faster. A woman bleeds during her menstrual cycle, she bleeds when her hymen breaks, there’s blood at childbirth. If you donate blood you might be saving someone’s life.

Whatever little microscopic bits are floating around in there contain the very essence for all that you are. A scientists can (illegally) clone you if they had just a drop of your blood. Your blood contains your DNA—a blueprint not just for you, but your complete ancestral line.

Something that contains this much power is naturally powerful in magic. Perhaps some would say it’s too powerful.

Blood Magic is Not Blood Sacrifice

Blood Magic: No Harm Necessary

Blood magic is not magic that involves killing people or animals in ritual sacrifice. Let’s just make that clear. We’re not talking about laying some innocent creature out on an altar or in the center of a pentagram and killing it, or wounding it. This would be all kinds of wrong, not to mention illegal, and is not at all what I mean when I talk about blood magic.

Blood magic is the use of a few drops of blood during a spell or ritual—usually your own blood, but if you are casting for someone else you could use theirs (with caution and permission, of course). Those few drops can add power to a magical working in any number of ways.

Do you believe blood magic evil?

Is Blood Magic Evil?

The first thing you need to learn about blood magic is that it’s not inherently evil. Blood isn’t evil, is it? Does it make you ‘evil’ or desire to do malicious deeds just because it’s currently inside your body? If not, why do you think it would it become ‘evil’ outside of your body? Some people mistakenly think that using blood in magic is ‘dark’ or somehow only associated with malevolent intentions. This is simply not true.

The negative connotations stem back to that fear of blood I spoke about earlier: fear of our own mortality, fear of power, etc., are the kind of driving factors behind a fear of blood. Indeed, if you are hemophobic, you might want to avoid blood altogether. It’s not for everyone.

But I come from a more objective perspective. I see blood – like any object or component you would use in magic – as simply a tool. It’s a very powerful tool, but a tool nonetheless. It’s neither benevolent nor malevolent in its own right. You could use it for any number of purposes, though like any other tool it’s not advised to use it for unethical purposes.

Going back to the fire analogy—I could use fire to burn down my neighbor’s home when they piss me off. I have access to fire, which can be a very powerful destructive choice if I choose. So what stops me? The fact that I am an ethical person who has no interest in hurting others. Just because I don’t want to hurt someone with fire doesn’t mean I shouldn’t use it. By the same logic, I don’t want to hurt someone with blood magic; just because I don’t want to cause harm with it doesn’t mean I shouldn’t feel free to utilize this powerful tool.

A good implement to have for blood magic is the prickers that diabetics use to test their blood sugar.

A Little Goes a Long Way

Practicing Safe Blood Magic

Before I begin discussing ways to use blood in magic, let’s discuss ways to use it safely. First, there are a few don’ts to keep in mind:

  • Don’t ever take more than a few drops
  • Don’t ever take blood from an unwilling participant (this includes animals because they cannot give consent)
  • Do not smear your blood on people, let people smear blood on you, or try to exchange blood in any way; remember that many diseases can be transferred through blood
  • Do not ever consume blood, either directly or by putting it into a drink; aside from the fact that you can catch diseases, blood itself is toxic to human beings. More than a couple of teaspoons can cause haemochromatosis and potentially do some serious organ damage.
  • Don’t let others drink your blood, either directly raw or by putting it into food or drinks; this is essentially giving your power over to that person, and not in a good way.

The correct way to perform blood magic safely would be:

  • Sanitize the area of skin with an alcohol pad or sanitizing gel.
  • Sanitize a small poking implement, such as a pin.
  • Poke only enough to break the skin.
  • Squeeze out your few drops to collect for your use
  • Clean the wound immediately and put some antibiotic ointment on it. If it’s still bleeding, put a bandage on it.
  • Handle and dispose of anything that has been touched with blood with extreme caution until the end of your ritual or spell.
  • Disinfect surfaces (of your skin and your work space), implements and any other tools after performing blood magic.
  • Keep the wound clean as it heals.

If you are a woman and you prefer, you can use your menstrual blood rather than pricking yourself. You can catch menstrual blood easily with a diva cup if you need to temporarily preserve it for ritual—just don’t hang onto it very long, and all the same sanitary practices regarding care and clean-up also applies.

What's Your Experience?

When (and When Not) to Use Blood Magic

I can't tell you exactly when and where blood magic is your best option, but I can tell you my reasoning: I use it only in extreme need for the most important circumstances.

  • I’ll use it for protection— not minor protection, such as if my co-worker is a nuisance I’m not going to use blood magic to keep her out way; but major protection, when there is a potential for serious life-changing threats (accident, crime, etc.)
  • I’ll use it for health and wellness—not minor issues like sore throats or skinned knees, but big health issues like disease, injuries, surgery or breaking unhealthy addictions.
  • I’ll use it for desperate needs—not minor things like saving money for a Disney trip, but big things like if I were on the verge of being homeless or starving I would use it to draw what I need to survive.

That’s about it. I have more rules about when to never use it:

  • I never use blood magic unless I’m (or the person I’m doing it on behalf of is) fully prepared to accept whatever the consequences may be (which means thinking them through very carefully).
  • I never use it to target other people without their permission (unless, of course, it’s deadly necessary for protection; I had no issue banishing a violent family member who refused to leave my mother’s home and threatened my life with a gun)
  • I never use it in love or relationship magic; bonds between people need to be naturally developed, not forced. Blood magic turns a potential bond into a chain: emotional slavery.
  • I never use it to gain power; if you can’t earn it naturally, you don’t deserve it and probably won’t know how to wield it.
  • I never use it to bring harm to anyone or anything.
  • I never use it for vengeance or retaliation

Spell Casting with Blood

Using Blood in Magic

Now that you know the correct way to safely use blood in magic, let’s talk about how you might put it to use. There are countless ways, actually, limited only by your imagination. But here are a few ideas to get you started.

  • In candle magic, mix blood drops with oil to dress and charge your candle.
  • Use a small drop or two to anoint and charge any talisman or amulet.
  • In jar or container magic, add a few drops of blood to the container.
  • In petition magic, smear some blood on the paper the petition is written on.
  • Place a drop of blood in a mojo bag before tying it up.

Alternatives to Blood

Though not entirely as powerful as blood, there are other things you can use to personalize a spell and lend it a boost: urine, saliva, semen, nail and hair clippings, for example. These are all effective options that will lend power to minor workings, or workings when blood magic wouldn't be appropriate or advised.

When you're first learning magic, it's advised that you work with these first before graduating on to blood. Take some time, experiment with these things. You'll begin to get a sense of how much putting 'part of yourself' into a spell affects your magic.

Once again, nothing is inherently good or bad—it all depends on how you choose to utilize it. So practice ‘safe magic’ and you'll be okay.

      Heya Rizzel! If you did a binding then it may take some time to wear off naturally. A general cleansing should help but I also recommend the following:

      1. If you're strong mentally you can break the tie by cutting ALL connections with this person.

      2. Seek protection from something you believe in. This works for most psychic attacks

      So, I’m a teenager, 15 yrs old, I was gonna use 1 drop of blood as a part of a ritual to ask one of the wiccan gods ( that seems to be the nicest, not the bad ones that can be dark) to unlock my magic since i cant get the specific candles and the triquetra i need so i was gonna use a blood ritual circle i found online and i was gonna put the symbols of the gods im trying to persuade like christ’s, ra’s, etc. around the circle and make up a compelling performance of words to cast aloud or something, so does that count as trying to gain power or is it okay for me to try and do?

      First, I have genetic haemochromatosis and it cannot be transferred by consuming blood.

      As for the lung question, Bre, I might go more toward herbs and the chemical alkaloids in some plants or homeopathy to support his lungs well and help.then try to heal naturally over time. Spells may lend positive vibrational help over time, but he did not develop lung issues over a day and it will take time/support to heal them. Mainly, if you can find an Anthroposophical MD for him or other very good naturopath, your chances to get him natural help will aid him more than a spell. Send healing vibrations, for sure, but as a complimentary healing along with good natural medical herbal care from a knowledgeable person. I am not sure that is the time for a spell.

      Hi, have a question that I am hoping someone will have legitimate information for. I went through some pretty messed up ritual abuse a couple years back. In going through the healing process, I recovered a memory of a blood ritual that took place. In terms of the ritual abuse scale, it wasn't nearly as wild and messed up as other more extreme ritual abuse situations. Nevertheless, it happened, and I am wondering if there is some special thing I should do for healing and unwinding purposes.

      It was a small prick on the finger but the blood between myself and the psychopath was shared. I was under severe cognitive dissonance (mind control) at the time, and it was a master-slave dynamic. I am no longer in this situation of course and got out before it descended into the more likely point of no return... I am ignorant as to the etherical bonds that happen through blood and if there would be any residual bonding on the etheric plains... anyone have any information on this, or recommendations as to some personal rituals or healing practices to have a more "psychic" separation, if there is in fact a more subtle energetic tie still in place? Thanks.

      Adding emotion to the mix can prove a potent source of power in blood magic ritual. Hence, the drawing of blood during moments of extreme pain or pleasure can act as a powerful catalyst that can spell failure or success for the ritual. Try drawing blood during childbirth or sex next time, then use the blood for the ritual; you'll be surprised by the results.

      kristi, not everyone on the planet follows a religion that was only brought about a meager 2000 years ago. even by extension into judaism, it's only nearly 4000 years old (1812 B.C.). I, for one, follow a much older religion. that is, pure spirituality with a focus on balance. the universe IS balance. as such, the belief that all things began in balance and will return to balance could be considered the oldest form of belief system in existence. in all honesty, the blood magic referred to here is child's play compared to some other forms of magicks i've seen.

      oh, i also want to mention, in reference to your mention of Satan. this is Lucifer, is it not? i may be wrong, but i do believe that he was an angel. by what i've read, he rebelled when God told him to bow to Humankind. he saw us as small, pathetic insects. would you obey, if god commanded you to bow to ants?

      All Magick is evil through and through. The Bible forbids it all for a very good reason. To try to affect someones will in any way shape or form without them knowing it or even if they know it then this is playing on the side of satan. I know some of you or many don't believe even in satan, but he is oh so very real as much as Jesus Christ the worlds Lord and Savior is real. I have had evil attacks from many others for the past 19 years yet protected through Jesus Christ. I so hurt for the majority who live in a beast system and play with darkness and evil and don't even think there are dire consequences for this. Unfortunately as with every generation since the end of the Garden of Eden the majority have been seduced by satan and his lies vs. the Holy Godly truths of Jesus Christ Almighty God. So sad, but true. There is eternal hell and eternal heaven. I pray anyone reading this turns to Jesus and the Bible alone and quickly for otherwise you will end up regretting staying asleep in such a wicked beast system which is now in the last generation. Amen.

      To Sakshi. One of the uses that has lead me here is to make a substitution doll. In onmyodo there is something called a shikigami, and in the Old Testament, it states how the spilling of blood is the only substitution. I have a working theory I call the Karmic Cycle that shows a cycle between luck, karma, and events/actions. This would be a substitution to remove bad luck or negative karma from the user, allowing actions to be performed without the negative consequences. This includes actions that would temporarily spike luck up and immediately spike it back down. With destruction by purifying flame, the consequences would reach conclusion. I don't practice witchcraft, but there's a lot of research done by the community that is lacking in other mysticism and esoteric communities.

      There are various theories based on the type of magic, so there really isn't one answer to tell you how 'this stuff' works. In general, magic works because our thoughts have weight, they consist of matter. Albeit they are very hard to measure, so faith is a major component. Beliefs, emotions, and will all have matter. So when you have a thought, it affects the world around you. Think of it like dropping a stone into the ocean. That small stone will cause ripples, right? And those 'ripples' will cause something you want to float close enough for you to reach out and grab. Real magic is NOT like the movies. Sometimes I will get signs, or see things I interpret as signs that a spell has worked, but other times you won't know until the spell works. For example, I cast a healing spell for my mother. She injured her back, and always has severe anxiety about going to the doctor. I cast the spell the night before her appointment. I used a poppet - a paper cutout that I visualized was her. When she woke up the next morning, her back didn't hurt. She was calm and confident all morning and had no anxiety about seeing her doctor. She knew I was casting the spell for her back - turns out she has a crushed disc - so she was surprised at how calm she was. Of course, she overdid and the back pain came back, but the spell did what I wanted it to: her pain and anxiety was alleviated so she could make it to her doctors' appt.

      Hey, I was wondering, I'm a man of science and don't always believe in things like this, how does this all work and is it in general considered bad as I am aware that usually messing with the balance of nature is usually frowned upon in the community and this also appears in the science department such as" gene splicing" or creating creatures. Also, is their a physical sign to tell a spell will take affect, for example (in movies) a symbol will appear or whatever? lastly, if this is such a powerful concept why hasn't anyone created a spell and cured cancer for everyone?

      I'm sorry, I'm not a fan of the occult. However, I thank you for the informative article. My recent life experiences have lead me to search for information that may help me to decipher the dilemma in my life/marriage.

      As a young adult I fell in love & married the love of my life /my high school sweetheart; a military guy at the time. Due to extenuating circumstances we divorced shortly there after, we bore no children ;God had His reasons. Couple of yrs later I met current spouse. 2wks after having met I moved in w/him, married after we got found out we were expecting our daughter, our son there after. We have been together since, going on 27yrs., 7/30/18. Have had my suspicions of his infidelity but I rode it out for my kids sake. My kids are young adults now. I've spent more than half my lifetime raising our family, & taking care of our home. His infidelity became more apparent when my kids were teens. Spouse has ALWAYS shielded his debauchery thru his work time w/his co workers that entertain him as I've discovered he "climbs them up the ladder". 1yr ago I was away at a family funeral while spouse stayed behind. I came home to much later discover blood stained mattress not sheets that no1 could explain to me. I doubt it's a black entity! I sense his lover or he has performed a spell on my bed mattress!!! I'm sure its all due to the well male check up I had him take that had a (-) impact on our relationship. We are no longer a couple & on the brink of divorce. My wellness test results were clean t.t. G., I'm unscathed. I'm very spiritual. I often sense his evil ways against me

      Hi Nancy: there are various ways of doing it. Some people just like to write a sentence, straight-forward and to the point. Example, someone trying to break into the music industry might cast a spell and write: "I am a rich and successful singer who quickly shot to fame."

      And it can be as simple as that. Write them using positive language (not words like 'can't' or 'don't' in them), and write them as if they're happening/already happened.

      Others like to use symbols. For example, '$$$' can be a powerful symbol for a money magic petition.

      Still others like to write them in symbolic ways. For example, if John wanted his boss Robert to give him a promotion, he might write Robert's name on the paper, then write his own name (John) on top of it... to show dominance of will.

      Then he might also write in an unbroken circle around the names 'I'm the most qualified for the assistant manager job'. Putting a box or circle around something symbolizes having the situation under your control.

      There are many ways so it's best to choose something that makes sense most to you, since it's your petition. As long as you feel a word/symbol/format communicates your intention best, it'll be good.

      Ive been using blood magick since i was a child, the best means for it would be using it i. Protective rune spells that you draw, or with talismans as you describe. Blood is very potent if used (especially if its an inherent gift). Ill be recommending this to some people who've asked me how i do what i do. I commend you for a great guide guide for blood magick.

      Stay safe practitioners.

      People use binding in 2 different ways. Usually in Wicca, to bind someone is to cast a spell on them to prevent them from doing any harm-- to themselves or others. It's usually done as a last resort when someone poses a threat, such as if there were a rapist on the loose, until further action can be taken (such as the police catching him).

      In some other traditions, like American folk magic, people will 'bind' a person to them-- a husband, a child, a friend, etc. The goal is to strengthen the bond between the two individuals, and, for some magic practitioners, to keep a little edge of control over the other.

      Your mom might have one of those in mind, or might even have a different meaning for the term. I strongly suggest if you want the best answer is that you ask her what she meant by it. I don't think you need to be embarrassed to ask for clarification, it would be a very reasonable question under the circumstances.

      Hi Nancy; there's so much we hear about magic growing up that gets programmed into our subconscious. Between the fantasy and horror stories and the religious rumors, etc. it can seem a little scary to dive in.

      I felt that way at first; but the more I learned and practiced, the more I have come to see magic like any other natural resource. Like fire: it can heat your home or burn it down. It's just a tool, a useful one, that we have to learn to use carefully, but nothing to really fear there.

      I hope you find my articles helpful in your journey!

      When it comes to injuries I take an all-around approach: spells for healing (there are so many but as I always say, it's more about understanding what you're doing-- then you can write your own, or tweak any you find). Also herbal remedies and going to the doctor. There's a lot involved in healing, I wish there were an easy way to go 'poof' and cure everyone, but sadly it just doesn't work that way. Thanks!

      Hi Christian; I totally disagree with you and your world view. There's no way I can follow what you say, because I simply and whole-heartedly and sincerely do not believe it. I'd be a terrible liar and a fraud if I acted it out, because deep in my heart I do not believe it is my path.

      I know my Gods love me; not worried about that.

      I'd appreciate if you don't come to my articles to proselytize. I'm a former Christian, there's nothing you could tell me that I haven't heard of. I spent years studying, researching & considering it, I simply don't believe Christians are right about how things work.

      Hi Karyssa; sounds like your dream was more of a subconscious message than any negative magic experience. Mirrors are reflections of our inner selves in dreams. Dreaming you're losing your soul generally means you feel spiritually lost, or it could indicate guilt... perhaps for attempting blood magic after your mother warned you about it and put a fear into you.

      I don't honestly think you have anything to worry about; you did use blood, but you used it with a prayer and good intentions. As I mentioned in the article, blood isn't just evil. It's powerful, but not evil.

      Sometimes people who don't understand magic well dabble and scare themselves silly. Often these fears can manifest in dreams shortly after. It sounds to me this is what probably happened to you.

      I wouldn't rush to destroy myself; I think trying to keep someone away is good enough. You could do a warding charm bag or witch's bottle specifically aimed at keeping her away, as well as work on your husband to keep him faithful (if you want; personally I don't do this, as if someone is looking to be unfaithful to me I say good riddance).

      Hi Steve; sorry so long in finding this but that's a tough one... it would be so hard to get someone's blood without consent, but if they knew they were doing with it they could cause much problems for you. I'd do an uncrossing ritual and lots of protective charms. Let me know how you're doing.

      Cj, where do you prick yourself? If you find it hard to get blood from you finger, there's a couple of things you can try.

      1. Warm your fingers up. Cold fingers means less blood in the small veins.

      2. Squeeze. I recommend squeezing your pointer between your middle finger and thumb.

      3. Don't prick the middle but rather the side.

      And if none of that works...

      4. Change the incision site. If you find it hard to get blood from your finger, try a visible vein. They bleed more so you need to hold pressure afterwards and you do run the tiny risk of hitting an artery, but if you prick with a needle you will not lose enough blood for it to be harmful, it'll just be annoying. Most people have a good vein on the inside of their elbow. You can also try the back of your hand, but it is quite unpleasant.

      Safety (for using veins):

      1. If blood starts spraying rather than flowing out, you've hit an artery and need to hold pressure for at least twenty minutes. Don't wait to harvest the blood, just put pressure and hold it until the bleeding stops. It's scary but not life-threatening unless you decide to stall. Blood always looks like there's more of it than there really is. (Though if you are worried you should call 911, just to make sure you are safe.)

      2. I don't recommend doing this completely alone. Even if nobody is in the room helping you, somebody should be at shouting distance in case you start to feel weak. At the very least you should have your phone with you so you can call 911 if you do hit an artery and feel like you might pass out.

      3. Don't use the veins in your legs. The arms are better because there's less blood in them and the arterial pressure isn't so great. The veins in the legs are less visible and generally more dangerous.

      4. Don't go for the neck either. Seriously. Just stay between the elbow and the fingers and you'll be okay.

      5. Prick only enough to break the skin and the superficial vein. Arteries are deeper down, so if you don't stick the needle in more than a few millimeters you will be all right.

      Got it? Go work your magic.

      This is not light but darkness. Witchcraft is of the devil, there is no good in it. The only blood that can do you any good is the blood of Jesus Christ shed on the cross. As the Son of God, His blood has the power to cleanse you of all sin. He rose again the third day, defeating death. Soon He will come again and he will judge this world.

      I implore you to turn from your witchcraft and the devils you commune with and seek Jesus, for those who deny Him will spend eternity in a lake of fire and brimstone. That includes all who practice witchcraft. Get free of this while you still can.

      P.S. I'll probably get threats for this, maybe cursed or some such. Let me just say that as a born again Christian, I belong to Almighty God. Your curses and spells will have no effect, God is infinitely more powerful than anyone or anything you could possibly invoke.

      I'm not sure how professional any of you are, but my mother has dabbled with witchcraft and she's afraid of what she's done. I am not allowed to know exactly what she's done so I am sparing details, but she often draws pentagrams that she claims will protect me, though she seems afraid. One night, I said a prayer and put my blood on a page she'd written on thinking in might protect her... The next night I had a dream that my soul was being sucked from under me after being in the mirror watching my own possession, for lack of a better term. I was wearing white. My face turned bright red. Luckily I woke up while I was spiraling downward and I didn't live out the duration of the dream. I was truly terrified and still am. That's why I'm here, I kind of just want some of you to be able to tell me I am safe. I know it is not safe to dabble in magic and if I'm forced to pay permanent prices I will be deeply regretful. Thanks for the cooperation and honesty.

      Years ago, I left my now ex and she went off the deep end. After a couple of months trying to stay away, I became convinced that if I didn’t come back, she was going to end up killing herself. I returned and saw how bad she’d gotten (the drugs, the weight loss, self harming, not taking care of her daughter) and I felt so guilty for leaving her to fall apart that I swore I’d never leave her again. Months go by, she gets sober, and things are back almost to normal when she admits out of guilt that she’d performed some binding spell on me. I wasn’t familiar with anything like that then but from what I understand, she made a pact with an unknown demon to bind me to her out of desperation. To make it worse she sealed it with menstrual blood and had to promise to turn over her next born child. The entire situation still shocks me. Fast forward about 5 years of a very unhappy relationship involving meth use, physical abuse, her burning all my clothes, me taking a felony to keep her from losing custody and even $1000 theft on her part on me... I was miserable but couldn’t leave. I feared she’d crack up and I thought it was my job to save her. 7 years in, she finally ended our relationship and it has killed me. It’s been over a solid year and I can’t move on. What’s more, I know I despise the person she’s become and things she’s doing! Am I bound? I have a feeling that it was Azazael she made the pact with because that became her main focus when our relationship ended and she’d always been oppressed with familiar spirits ever since undergoing satanic ritual abuse as a child.

      I’m sorry this is so long, I don’t know where else to turn. How can I be released?

      Loved and appreciated all of this except your quip about women bleeding when their hymen is broken. Hymens do not "break" - they ate not some football poster held up by cheerleaders for players to bust through. It is delicate tissue that can be easily damaged when a person with a vagina has penetrative sex. Usually this means they are not aroused enough. But a line like yours above just feeds into mysoginy and patriarchy, and I don't believe that's your intention. Hymens don't have to bleed at all during sex, so let's not tie the power of the practice you are so eloquently explaining to a result oppression and intimate neglect.

      Hi Gene; this is a serious situation, and without knowing more about details I can't really tell you what to do. If your daughter is being abused, there is no time for waiting for spells to manifest, you should be calling social services, or the police, to intervene.

      If this is a long, drawn-out series of family problems being battled out in courts, and you're skilled at magic, your best bet is to use the court system/authorities. Cast spells to speed things up, for successful outcome, etc. You can also cast spells around your daughter for protection and to help her find peace until things are settled.

      You might also take it as a sign, if he doesn't come back, that those *are* his intentions-- to not be there, to let you down.

      If I were you I'd cleanse it out, but just to break the attachment, and let him go on, and work on yourself & moving forward. Best of luck to you!

The blood was mine and I created a anointing blood oil to anoint the candles, paper and my shadow book. It was powerful. The energy created was, well, massive. My incantation paper glowed and strange things began to happen just outside of my circle, Even more inside the mirror. I am a god.

      Hi Sage,

      i always knew about blood magic done on men,but I was never interested in it. I always loved more to know that things are going naturally,with true emotions etc.

      Well,until last night..I don`t know what happened with me,but I had obsessive thought to do something with blood and the guy I like a lot,but he keeps running from me and coming back.I keep working on myself and things were getting better for me emotionally until,like i said last night.

      I wanted to see if he will come back to truly express his feelings toward me so I know what to do next. I wrote his name and date of birth and covered it with blood..Few hours later I regret because if he truly wants to be with me he would be or maybe it is not the right time for us,as he is younger and not very stable in emotional way.

      Do you think this was strong `spell` I did?I only covered few times,and I didn`t hear from him.Maybe it didn`t work at all.

      I am thinking of saging the paper and stating to remove my power over him and to clean the paper with water and flush it down the toilet.
