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

Source

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.

What do you say?

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?

What is your experience with blood magic?

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.

      Hi Angie; it sounds like you're not forcing him to be with you. You're forcing him to make his intentions known. If his intentions affect you, I don't see that as a bad thing.

      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!

      I am a novice at sorcery and have been honing my candle magic. However the last full moon I had a strong feeling come over me and for the first time I used human blood in my work. 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.

      Hi Lee; not sure I understand the situation. In general, if I thought someone cast a blood spell on me I'd do some freezer magic to halt the effects, do an uncrossing ritual, and then cleansing/purification baths.

      Beyond the general, though, I'd need to know more details.

To protect me as I was told to take my strongest child with me for extra protection since I’m stronger with them but I cannot take them with me. Is there a way to combine or make something to gather all our gifts together to help me on my travels and to protect me.

      Hi, I am making a jar spell asking my goddess guardians to help wake up someone I love, to make them conscious of their very dangerous addiction and behavior. I am building this spell jar during the new moon and also menstruating on the new moon, so I thought of adding a tiny vial of my blood to the jar. I would want to do this to bring purification to this person's spirit/heart/mind/body, to protect myself in the process because this is done with love from my heart, and to amplify the power of the intent- to show the universe I mean business down the core. Also, I thought since I love him maybe the blood could help his awakening happen in an effective and profound, thorough capacity but in a gentle and constructive manner. Can this work? It sounds so dramatic to write this but if he doesn't show signs of change I actually have to make my local authorities aware of his problems so I really want this to work. Thank you for your advice!

      Hi Shana; first off I'm very sorry about your situation. It sounds very serious, and because it's very serious, I'm going to urge you not to dabble for yourself and find someone experienced locally who can really work with you on your problem and help you.

      My goal here is to help teach people about Witchcraft so they can learn and grow in the practice; but for someone in a really bad situation, if you don't know Witchcraft, it's not something you can just jump into like that. It takes time, study and practice to become adept. Desperation is not a good time to begin your journey.

      When it is a situation of someone in danger, I can't comment on what to do with minimal knowledge, so I'm afraid I can't help with your situation.

      I'm also Christian, Catholic as it may, and what "A Christian" is saying is hurtful and sad. You are not speaking from God and Jesus is saddened by your words. No one is going to hell because they have different beliefs and I have read all of these comments and I didn't hear any evil in them. It doesn't sound like anyone here is of satan. Please don't speak for the rest of us Christian's because you are speaking hate and evil, blasphemy. It's just sad and I hope that you will realize whoever said that you have no right to judge, they are correct. That is God's right and his alone. I will pray for healing in your heart.

      Could blood be used in a spell to resolve a conflict ? There's a relationship with someone I've been trying to mend for months and they won't stop fighting me out of fear but all I want is things to be peaceful finally. I'm planning on trying a spell for the issue though not quite sure yet what to do, but if blood is powerful could I use it to help a bunch ?

      I understand; like I said, people of all walks of life (race, culture, gender, orientation, religion-- even my own) commit atrocities sometimes. And it's horrific, and no excuse for it, and those who do should be held accountable.

      Again though, the ritual killing animals is not the topic of the article.

      Hi Psychedelic Witch; sure.

      For example, a lot of people come to me wanting to do a blood binding spell with a lover or ex-- I won't take responsibility for that. It can keep two people in an unhappy relationship for years (it doesn't really solve the relationship problems, KWIM?), it can increase the tensions, the frustrations, the fighting because they're essentially in emotional bondage to each other.

      I wouldn't take the responsibility for myself, either. If the relationship is a good one, it's not necessary. And if it's not a good one, it's better to let it come to an end than to try and force two unhappy people to be stuck with each other.

      Or if a child was sick in the hospital, I might create a poppet and use blood to link it to the child... I would realize then that I had a responsibility to take extreme care of this poppet while it's linked to the child (not something I'd want to accidentally drop into a fire pit or let the dog get and bury in the yard) until I am able to ceremonially unlink it.

      As I've said, blood doesn't necessarily mean something bad or dangerous is going to happen, but since it is so powerful it's necessary to use it with caution and forethought.

      Hi Jenn; in your nephew's situation, I would be very cautious about blood magic spells. If his personal will is against healing, this could be too conflicting for him. I would urge you to first try a binding spell on him, to protect him from doing harm to himself. Then healing spells to bring sense and peace to his mind so he can have some time of clarity to seek out help. In general, though, without his permission, unless he is a threat, it can for some people do more harm than good to be over-controlling, and this includes people who are struggling with addiction or mental illness.

      Hi Aradia;

      Of course blood magic has involved sacrifices and pain and traumatizing dark things. I never said that never happened.

      I thought I made it pretty clear that that's not the kind of practices I'm talking about, nor are these the kinds of practices I advocate. And they are the kinds of practices my religion discourages.

      People can use just about anything for dark purposes-- a hammer, for example, can be used to slaughter innocent children. That doesn't mean hammers are evil. That doesn't mean instructing someone on using a hammer is the same thing as instructing them to kill children.

      I have a hammer... some people have used hammers as murder weapons, but if I tell you how to build a cabinet with a hammer, I'm not telling you to kill people with it.

      I empathize with the traumas that you went through and agree no one should have to go through it. I agree, people in any walk of life can turn around and use something otherwise innocent to justify perfection horrific behavior. Obviously, though, these aren't the things I'm talking about.

      Hi Aradia; not sure what your point is. Of course humans of any religion, race, culture, gender, etc. can do atrocious things if they set their minds to it.

      Doesn't mean that those actions would be in line with Wiccan beliefs. Also doesn't mean that blood magic is automatically related to any wrongdoing.

      Maybe you can elaborate, I'm not sure what you're trying to say.

      A Christian, I was raised Christian, studied the Bible in depth, roots/history of the Bible/Judaism, studied world religions in college, etc. and am extremely familiar with what you believe and why you believe it.

      I also have dozens of personal reasons why I absolutely do not share your beliefs. These are reasons to which I've given years of consideration, prayer, discussion, debate, research, etc. They are nothing I've come to lightly, and after 25 years of being a Wiccan Witch, I know better what is right for me, what my experiences are, than you do.

      Nothing you have described is true in my religion. There is no hell, so watching a video about it would be silly (and redundant, as I've seen several and they're all the same nonsense, from the same mistranslations of the Hebrew Bible).

      Now if you feel you need to connect to the Divine through Jesus, that is your path and I wish you well on it.

      It is absolutely, positively not my path... and with that, nothing Jesus ever did was done for me.

      I know Christianity teaches you Jesus is the only way; he's not. He's one way, not the only way.

      I could not possibly abandon my true Gods, my true path, to follow what someone else thinks is best for them.

      Because you know nothing about my actual beliefs and practices, your comments are irrelevant here. You're free to make your own hub on the topic. If you're going to post here, please keep your posts relative to the topic or I'll have to delete them. Proselytizing isn't relevant.

      Wicca is not exempt from religious abuse. All religions can be abused or used as a justification for abuse and even killing.

    • aradia2u profile image

      aradia2u 6 weeks ago

      With all due respect to the author, blood magic can involve the ritual killing of animals, and it can be used for evil. I'm sure you are not doing that in your blood magic practices-nor do you intend to promote that. I was extremely traumatized as a child when forced to participate in blood magic rituals with my extended family on my father's side that involved animal sacrifice. I'm an animal lover, and that was murder in my little heart. To witness such things and have blood dripped or sprinkled on you unwillingly as a young child is an evil misuse and abuse of the power of blood magic. Please understand that such things happen, and they are evil. I know that ultimately there is no good or bad and seeming opposites are limited to the world of duality and are not Reality. Yet, from my relative reality perspective, extreme fear that induces PSTD in children in the name of religion-any religion-is abuse. Christianity and Islam do not corner the market on fundamentalism and extremism.

      A Christian makes my heart so sad.

      I was brought up as a Christian and it's hurtful words like that and the attitude of "you're going to hell because you don't do A, B, and C" that have caused me to turn my back on Christianity and following that path.

      I'm hurt. Deeply. These words do not demonstrate the supposed unconditional love that God has for His children and YOU'RE supposed to demonstrate. It's because of this attitude and many more reasons I'm not following Christ any longer. A pastor looked me in the face after I said I needed a break from being a worship leader because I had questions and my father had just passed away... And told me that I should know better. That Satan was attacking me and my ministry and I know better than to fall for it. All I wanted was a break to sort my soul out.

      If following a more loving path and compassionate deitys mean I will go to hell so be it. At least I'll have lived my life as a mortal being true to myself and walking in true unconditional love.

      blood is a type of "taglock" commonly used in "contagious magic". it works like a physical address which links an object or ritual act back to the source of the blood. for instance if you create a poppet of yourself upon which to perform healing magic, you might dress it with your blood (or stuff with hair, nail clippings, etc) in order to link the poppet to yourself. the same can be done with lamens, or other magical or divination tools. this is commonly done with a lamen of protection for instance, by using the blood to inscribe whatever sigla are particular to the lamen, which is then empowered by the spirits which the sigla represent.

      another use for blood is as a compensatory offering, such as when harvesting the limb of a tree or plant for magical or medicinal use. in this way it works both as a contagious address back to the person making the offering (a sort of guarantee of good faith), as well as a small practical offering of fertiliser to help the plant replenish any nutrients it might need to regrow said limb.

      finally it can be used as a way of consolidating the bond with a familiar animal. you can present a piece of food stuff with your blood on it, to the animal. if the animal voluntarily consumes the blood, then it will help consolidate a spiritual bond between you and the familiar animal. this however will only work if you have a genuine connection with the animal to start with.

      A Christian: Jesus said to his disciples, "all these things and more you shall do."

      You call it Mircles from your God, We call it Magick from ours. "A rose by any other name still smell sweet."

      In the end, all paths lead to the creator(s). All will find those that created them; save the fool going in circles; accusing everyone of being wrong and that they are right.

      It is in your own bible that it states to love your neighbor as you love yourself. A true Christian would seek to understand and to love, not to hate and accuse. I know many a Christians who would be insulted by your words.

      You have chosen hatred, and fear of the unknown, over love and understanding.

      You say you are a Christian, than as your bible states, You are not Our JUDGE. That RIGHT belongs to the creator alone.

      I humbly suggest that you pray to your God for understanding and guidance and to remove this seemingly deep seeded hate from your heart.

      As for myself, I will pray to my gods and goddesses, that love would grow in your heart, and understanding in your mind.

      May the gods and goddesses bless you even as you stumble in the dark.

      So mote it be.

      I find it funny that "a christian" would come here to try and state how their beliefs somehow affect everyone else - kind of like a magic spell, no? Isn't that exactly what they are claiming is against their god and therefore evil?

      By the way, "a christian" you should probably be aware that your "Satan" doesn't exist in my pantheon of gods and goddesses and as kind and loving as they are to me and my friends and beloved family, they are in their own way vengeful and protective, so you should be very careful in tossing around your beliefs as threats, lest you want the fury of the natural world on you.

      My gods don't need to send you to an underworld, or "hell" in order to punish you.

      Back on topic now - Thank you for this lovely and informative post about Blood Magic. There are old accounts that blood was used to invoke the Egyptian gods and someday I may actually use your advice and reference this blog, should I need to use something as powerful as my own essence.

      Thank you again.

      christian: are you saying that should someone use blood magic that 3 to 4 generations are cursed through no actions of their own? i'm pretty sure according to your bible that is astoundingly inaccurate. you sound over zealous, and a little scary. its unfortunate that you see it your duty to judge others in the name of your god. i don't think what you preach is anything i want to know anything about. live and let live, if you believe what you say than so be it, but leave others beliefs up to them. i hope this is not deemed an inappropriate comment, but i'm quite upset.

      I would like to respond to 'A Christian' by just saying this: If your 'God' is so loving and almighty, why does he not see the good in those outside of the so-called 'Christian Church'? Surely it is the intention that counts and not the means. By your own words, you show yourself to betray your 'God'. Did Jesus not command his disciples to love, even their own enemies? It strikes me to be more than a little unloving to want to see others burn in that place you call 'Hell' just because they believe differently to you - is it not?

      Any power coming out of blood relating magic is from Satan, therefore it will end up evil, no mather your intentions. Any power that is not from God is from Satan. But the real problem here is the price. NOT ONLY WILL GOD CURSE YOU, its a free ticket to hell, also your curse from god will pass 3 or 4 generation unless you break it with the blood of Jesus Christ. Seek Jesus and repent. Meaning you ask jesus of forgivness of the sin and stop doing it. Stop bealieving the lies, stop escusing this. I mean, this power just proves that god exist. Seek Gods power instead is by far more powerful. You can change nations. Even though its harder to learn and master, there are no short cuts there, also only good will come out of it. Jesus will fill you with a peace only he can offer. And its all free. Ignoring this means that you will spend an eternity in hell. Whant more prof? Go to youtube seek a video about people going to hell, if you see the video and fell a fear in your heart let that be a warning. Remember that Jesus loves you, and he die for you. In witchcraft language, he became a sacrifices for ours sins. GOD LOVES YOU don't throw his love down the drain. You have your warning, in hell you have no excuse now.

      Hi Questions; I would say in general, blood is used for the binding, not the breaking, because by its nature, giving your blood to something binds you to it. To break binds can be a tedious process, but is best done in meditation and/or ritual... use something to symbolize the bond (a string or cord). Or you can go into a trance and work on in chakra by chakra and unbind them.

      Good luck!

      Hi Warlockblood; I would say adding more blood to this is probably a bad idea. what your girlfriend wants to do is go is go into a trance, go through her chakras/explore her aura, and envision herself cutting/untying any bonds. Until she gets that done, a little trick I like to use is writing the problem on a piece of paper and throwing it in the freezer, to 'freeze' the effects until I can undo them. GL!

I am HIV positive and have been living with it for 4 years &I talked with one spiritual healer online who assured me that he can heal me by casting a blood spell and we will be doing everything online as he is too far from where I stay. He asked me to get some materials as he will also use some stuff and guide me through how to use mine. What I want to know is whether it is possible for spell of blood to heal HIV

      Hi Octavia; The first thing you can do is write on paper 'blood bonds between (your name) and (his name)', and put it in the freezer in a cup of water. I use this to put an immediate hold on any bonds/contracts/vows/connections I have that are undesired.

      Then you have to work on breaking it... an uncrossing ritual could help, which is basically a series of cleansing baths, usually followed up by candle magic; but instead of candle magic, I'd follow it up by a chakra cleansing meditation (particularly on your sacral chakra). If you want you can do the candle magic part too, though (wouldn't hurt). Just don't skip on the bath part or the chakra meditation part. You can find all sorts of uncrossing rituals online, choose one you feel would work best for you.

      There are guided chakra-cleansing meds on like YouTube if you do a search., just cleanse each one, but esp. pay attention to the sacral chakra in your case due to menstrual blood being the source of the connection.

      After you've broken the connection permanently, you can remove the block of ice from your freezer. Smash it up (my subconscious likes the symbolism of this, lol) or let it melt-- just toss it away outside.

      That should really sever any possible ties, past present or future, with this guy, even if he were to still for some reason have or use your blood.

      I have been selling my menstrual blood, to a person I met online. He never really goes into detail about what he dies with it. He just laughs and one straw or two.

      The money he gives me has supplemented my income. So I haven't tripped about the power that my blood possesses.

      I had a bit of a spat with this drunk lady who hangs around him. He sent me an email saying that he wanted me out of his life. Surprisingly I was okay with it and actually relieved. My reply was brief. He quickly recanted his email. But I think its best we part.

      I would like to know what should I do to seperate the link that my blood has created between "D" and myself.

      Ah, wow. So much really depends. You don't need blood for spells. Even so, it's not easy to undo bindings in general.

      - What was your specific goal?

      - how did you go about it?

      - If you were young, and had not really understood what you were doing, are you sure it even worked?

      - how has it affected you?

      Hi there Dennis; definitely great that you've taken your time to research and learn. It can take some practice until you get a 'feel' for it. I'm not exactly sure what you've learned so far, but you might want to start with something simple like a herbal petition, simple candle spell or sigil.

      Hi there; magic is in you, me, everyone, plants, animals, the planet, the universe. It's all around. It's like a natural resource. All of us have ancestors who used magic if we go back far enough because it was once more common.

      It's not unusual to feel lost; it's overwhelming, it's s different view of life than we're taught in this day and age and there is much to learn. One step at a time. Keep reading, start a meditation regime, it will all start coming together for you in time.

I thought using my own blood in a spell, ritual or petition magick I could find out and from there start learing who I am and what I can do with my magick ( If there's any on me) since I've always feel so attracted to the unknown, just that I don't like the feeling of being lost . Please if you have any good suggestion that would be great!.

      Hi Curious;

      First I would say that was a scary experience when you were a child... but have you considered that a woman screaming could have been mental illness or something before jumping to demons as a conclusion? Because I think it's easy to fall into the trap of jumping at shadows if we assume everything had some sinister evil entity behind it. It's life and some stuff just happens.

      As for your personal experiences, I'm not involved enough to really examine the situation and help you get to the bottom of it. Like I said, I like to think rationally, not just supernaturally, and consider ALL the possibilities.

      One of them being of course that dark entities are haunting you; but another one being that there could be something more natural going on, like someone who suffers from a sleep disorder who has been intilled with fears about various supernatural dangers and a lot of family drama that made an impression on a young impressionable subconscious mind.

      Don't get me wrong, I believe paranormal things exist, but I also believe it's quite easy for humans to sometimes misinterpret normal experiences as paranormal. And probably most of us have a mix of both, and the best favor we can do for ourselves is be open minded to all the possible options.

      One thing you can do is an uncrossing ritual (google them; there's tons; find one that works for you). Uncrossing rituals are basically purification baths with candle magic. They help break any hold of negative entities, curses, etc. Then do some purification of the home (salt water, smudging, etc.).

      Doing these things, if the root of your problems are in anything dark having a hold on you, will break the hold and give you a moment of clarity. And if the problem was something else, like something physical or psychological, the uncrossing wouldn't hurt at all.

      You have a lot of serious issues you're grappling with, I suggest keep up working with doctors, and find a local reputable spiritual healer/etc. to help work with you, starting with a good reading to try and assess the nature of the problems. I wish you the best of luck, wish I could do more.

      Curious 4 months ago

      Hi Sage, this query is slightly off topic but I am wondering how do I know if I have some sort of dark entity attached to me? At the age of around 8yrs old we were at a Christian bible study, there was a bunch of kids running around when suddenly a woman screamed & had to be restrained as it seemed something had possessed her. I was scared like the other kids & was hurried off to another room while the adults prayed louder as the woman screamed louder until it seemed she quietened down. I wasn't born christian, Buddhist actually with a very spiritual grandma who used to look after me & pray to her idol quan ying ma with me by her side, so I'm thinking she must have dedicated me to her idols care from birth. At the age of 4, my parents migrated to another country, denounced their religion & started going to church, we experienced that strange night with the screaming woman & no longer go to church. Since then I've had several strange incidents throughout like waking up with a huge pressure on my chest with my mouth seemingly glued shut hearing loud chanting noises of a woman & children in my ears & fully able to see my grandma sleeping next to me when I was visiting her but unable to move, then being plagued by horrible nightmares around the age of 15 to the point I was scared to sleep of being hacked with an axe by my dad & exploding fish?! Then sleeping with a catseye doughnut shaped necklace which inexplicably lept from the black chord it was on around my neck to my tummy under my shirt in the morning when the chord was still around my neck, to waking up levitating about 2ft from the ceiling sleeping under a mosquito net I awoke with my face right at the top & looked down to see my bed below, this time again loud chanting but male voice & my mouth was glued shut again. I hv noticed 2 drops of blood on the mosquito net & also at my old house on the walls. Could these be protection things or not? Also I've been told by a few ex partners who hvnt treated me the best in the past that after we broke up tht something dark & horrible would follow them for months later. I have a magnetic allure to the opposite sex & don't even do anything to encourage it, I wear tracksuits & hoodies in fact or unflattering clothes in a group of friends who are couples but still feel the anger of other women if I'm around because the guys seem to just be taken with me, I hvnt taken anyones man or have any desire to do so as am looking for my soulmate but have not been able to meet him yet. It's come to the extent that although I was friends with all the guys first in our group because my ex & I had these group of friends 10 years ago, they have all since married except for me & my ex but I keep my interactions with the guys to bare minimum to avoid conflict. I wouldn't say I'm especially beautiful or anything plus the clothes I wear so don't know but I hv had very strong sexual energy from about the age of 8 & not sure why. Men is ok but women the vibe is aweful. I am not suggestive or ever even flirt with ppl as am the clumsiest wht you see is what you get kind of person who says things as they are rather than hint at things. My mother too looks at me with rage sometimes as if my being here is torturing her. Sometimes I could be talking to dad & she would freak out cause a scene or argument to interrupt us with a drama to engage him to follow her out of the room with urgency. Today I suffer from various ailments, pain all over my body, cold all the time, 2 minor strokes which left me numb on the left side of my body on & off which CT scans confirmed were bleeding to the brain. All I wish 4 is a simple normal life, good health, relationships with those I love, good husband & kids & my dog. I am caring & loving with my time & energy always there to support & encourage friends & family in times of need but also have been suffering blow after blow of illnesses relentless one after another they just found a lump in my right breast after the strokes still waiting to find out if im ok. Need some help to get some peace please much appreciated x

      Hi Edgardo; I think you need to work on learning how to phrase and narrow your magic goals. There are a few problems with yours. First of all, never phrase it in future tense (I have brought forth, or I bring forth, rather than I intend to). Setting your goals in the future keep them out of reach.

      Second, it's not a good idea to use metaphors like 'heaven on earth'. You need to describe intents specifically

      Third, you're trying to do something for the whole world, that's kind of a lofty goal. When you try to change too many things at once, the energy gets scattered and ends up fizzling out.

      Everyone doesn't have the same idea of 'heaven' and everyone can't benefit from the same things. For example, what you consider heaven may be what someone else considers misery. Again, this is the fastest way to fizzle out your spell.

      You can certainly put blood across your intent if you want, but it's your intent here that needs work. Good luck!

      Mackenzie Sage Wright 5 months ago

      Big difference really between blood magic and ritual sacrifices, as you pointed out, and ritual sacrifices are exceedingly rare these days, and not part of my own religion so I can really only speak on them based on research, not from experience. I've never actually been part of or witnessed a live animal sacrifice, in Wicca in particular it would normally be shunned.

      Sacrifices of animals usually would be for one of two reasons, as far as I could tell: it's a sacrifice to a deity (in which case, the sacrifice would be chosen accordingly; a pig farmer might sacrifice one of his livestock animals to a God at the harvest, or if there's a God associated with pigs in some way a pig might be appropriate). Or, in spellcasting, the pig's fear/pain/blood would be used for energy for something that has a dark purpose. There's symbolism behind every animal, so a pig might be chosen for what it symbolizes. It could be chosen as an offering to some deity or being to help with the deed, or it could simply be what's available to provide that energy.

      As to why would a group drink each other's blood-- aside from the fact that they're a bunch of teens who have seen too many horror movies? Sharing blood could be done to bond a group, or for members to give up power to it, or give personal power up to a leader. Very dark and dangerous stuff, really, and a poor choice to achieve those aims (there are better ways that don't carry the negative aspects).

      Drinking blood would make little sense though, if the goal was to curse another person (unless they managed to maintain and drink the target's blood), and would probably be a sign of inexperience/'seen too many horror movies' syndrome than any real magical working. Again, not something I've ever personally been part of/witnessed/really heard of seriously going on, though there are always kooks who love shock value and are willing to take things to such extremes.

      It may sound a bit odd but I was wondering if you knew anything about specifically pig magic,as in why would a pig be sacrificed compared to another animal. I understand that pig magic is not necessarily blood magic,my other question is why would a group drink each other's blood during a mass hexing of an individual? Is it just to unify their Magick​ or the curse or is there more to it than that? Thank you

      Hi there Gemini; I personally wouldn't use blood magic on a divination tool in general without specific reason, though I've known of people to use blood (usually females/menstrual blood) to consecrate their tools. I haven't worked with dowsing rods, but pendulum is also dowsing and I work with those frequently (in fact, pendulums and tarot cards are my preferred divination tools for general use, though on some occasions I also practice scrying).

      I would say if you're not having luck with a specific pendulum, it might be a good idea to start from the beginning. Cleans it (strip it of all past associations/energies), consecrate it, charge/program it (determine the 'ground rules' of its behavior, either by asking it to show you 'yes' or 'no', etc. or by showing it which way you prefer).

      You also might want to keep it on you for a while, sleep with it, etc. to attune it to your own energy; another helpful idea is to get straight in your head where you want the info to come from (collective unconscious? Higher self? Spirit guide? etc.) before each session.

      Not knowing what you have/haven't tried, or your process, etc. it can be hard to determine the problem, but I did write about it here if you're interested: https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/Pendulum-Wi...

      Many people burn petitions; it would be perfectly fine, burning in itself won't cause anything negative to happen.

      When doing spells in general, even petitions, it's my opinion that it's best to focus on one goal at a time; not that you can't have several magical workings going at once (you can). But I would cast a separate spell for each, ideally on separate days, and keep specifically focused on a goal.

      Beautiful healing story Midnight Carnival, sorry about your dad (mine died of cancer too). I doubt the incidents were related; sometimes it's just time to go and no magic in the world is going to stop it.

      The thing with blood is that it can be toxic; and you don't have to take my word for it, you can look it up in medical research journals and websites. People can drink small amounts occasionally and will probably suffer no ill effects, but occasionally (esp. with larger amounts), something can go terribly wrong and IMO it's not worth the risk. At any rate, I want people to be aware of the risks if they're reading my articles.

      Letting someone drink your blood is giving away your power, though, so it's not something I generally recommend even if it were physically safe.

      Thanks for sharing your story.

      Hi Chance; If your friend is choosing to dismiss common sense and warnings and engage in risky behavior, I'm afraid there really is nothing you can do. Same thing with someone who wants to do drugs, or commit crimes, or commit suicide or something-- friends and loved ones can really only stand by and helplessly watch. It's got to be the individual's decision to not want to do it anymore.

      She's going to have to learn from her own mistakes. You can tell her how you feel and encourage her to do research so she learns more and hopefully catches a clue, but you can't really stop anyone from exercising their free will.

      Since your mom is Wiccan, maybe she'll listen to her. Ask your mom if she'll talk to her or lend her a book or something.

      I Sad & Hearbroken; It seems to me that what you really need to help you, what would really be best for you, is not going to be what you want to hear.

      You need spells to ease your pain, break your ties to your ex and move on. That's what you need more than anything, because he is clearly sending you the message that he doesn't want to be with you, at least right now, for whatever his reason is.

      Sure you can try to do magic to force him back; this will be hard (even with blood magic) because his will is resisting yours. But let's say you manage to get him back-- it's not going to really change what the problem was that made him want to leave. It's just keep you both caged up with that problem remaining between you. It's not going to make him happy; in fact he is likely to become very resentful and frustrated that he's obsessed with you and drawn to you, despite the fact that he wants to get away from you. This is what usually actually happens when manipulative love magic tries to force someone against his will.

      If you succeed, you will not have an equal, loving partner working with you on nurturing a happy relationship and future; you will have an emotional slave who begrudgingly sticks around because he has no other choice, and he'll be miserable; and he'll let you know he's miserable, and you will soon realize that this is not what you wanted at all. But then, the deed is done and it's hard to undo. Major baggage...

      Letting go right now would be the healthiest thing for both you and him. That doesn't mean your paths won't ever cross again, but trying to force someone to live under your thumb just does not give you much of a happily ever after. You need time and distance, too, to think about why this did not work out naturally; you're too deep in your emotions right now to see if this is really the right relationship for you. And obviously right now he needs his space, and you trying to take that away from him, even magically, is not going to endear you to him.

      I wish you much luck and hope you take my advice; it might be hard now but I promise, it'll get better.

      Your best bet is to do a 7 or 13 day uncrossing ritual, there are many, many of them on the internet and in books and they're a bit long to go into here. Basically it's a bath + a candle magic ritual performed every day between midnight & sunrise (planetary hour of Jupiter, ideally, or the Sun). If you really want to send it back (rather than just break it), use a double candle, these candles have a color halfway (pick red if the curse is destroying your love life, blue for health, green for finances, etc) and the other half is black.

      Dear Mackenzie Sage Wright - I messaged you reg my problems few days ago and I really would love to get some help from you reg casting blood magic by myself to make my ex come back to me soon and rekindle the relationship with me. As he stopped communicating with me and stopped seeing me, the magic needs to be performed remotely. I dont have any of his personal stuff with me unfortunately that could be used for the magic. I'm really going through deep pain and I'm desperate to get help to bring him back to me. Would you be able to please help me soon reg my problems please?

      I really want to get back with my ex boyfriend who broke up with me 4 months ago. I tired but he doesn't want to talk to me and see me anymore. Is there any simple magic with blood I can perform my own that would make him come back to me and rekindle the relationship with me? I really love him very much and want to have a second chance with him. If this time it doesn't work out between us then I'll leave this for good. I'm badly heartbroken and very much in pain. Could you please help me? I would be grateful to you forever.

      Technically any and all magic is a tool and a weapon just like fire it can kill or save it depends on the person using it and their intentions

      So a friend of mine got into blood magic and she is a beginner and she is saying that she has four supernatural beings in her, now since my mom is Wiccan I know that if you don't use some kind of protection it comes back ten fold. I don't know what she did but it frightens me a tad that she just got into it and is already messing with blood magic not thinking of the danger it can bring especially when you just pick up a spell and use it, I know from experience that can go horribly wrong. I was really hoping I can get some suggestions on what I should do?

      Any idea's I appreciate everything I can get thanks fam.

      Is it possible to inadvertently use blood magick without the spelling of blood? If so, would it be possible for us to communicate in a more private and secure fashion (i.e. email).

      I accidentally preformed a spell. In a passionate rage at my mother and her boyfriend, whom I think is perfect for her, for fighting. My nose started to bleed so I took my blood and started to draw signs and runes of my own creation ( believe me, it's not just something I thought of the top of my head, my magic is organized and original. I even have my own language. Been prefecting it for years) I smeared their initials on the upper corners with mine at the bottom, in my language of corse. I woke up the next morning, her boyfriend who left the day befor was back and my mom and him got along as if it never happened.

      This was very interesting. I don't practice witchcraft or anything like that myself but i have always taken a great interest in everything magical and supernatural. I would definitely like to read more of your articles.

      When I was younger I used to invite freaky goth girls to drink my blood, I didn't think much of it because I was a virgin and unlikely to give them any of the illnesses more commonly shared via bodily fluids. I had major intimacy issues and this was the only way I could stand to interface with someone else's lips.

      I don't fully believe you that it is toxic or some of my friends would be dead long ago.

      Anyway, my friend's daughter heard that she had stage 4 ovarian cancer and was on her way out, she had a young son and this was horrible news. I got her a bracelet which I covered with my blood, later I sucked the cancer out of her (I take a lot of bad thing from people who don't want them, including malignant spirits) and took it into myself.

      Well, I got cancer but a less serious form and was able to recover completely apart from the scars... my mother got a life-threatening form of cancer and also recovered completely and my dad died of cancer a short while afterwards. You can put that down to me being silly and misusing my magic or to too much sun and my dad chain-smoking for 40 years... it's up to you. Anyway, my friend's daughter made a "miraculous" recovery and doctors couldn't even find signs that she had, had cancer as badly as test for a few weeks before, scans, etc revealed.

      Unlikely to do that again, effective though.

      Hi Jon;

      Thanks for the great question! I don't believe magic is a 'cure' for illnesses; if there is one thing I try to get through in my teachings is that magic is a a tool in life for everything but a miracle cure for nothing; it cannot poof one's problems away. It can be a means of learning to cope/treat/manage.

      I also suffer from anxiety, so I am a bit sympathetic to your problem. Mine is due to a neurotransmitter deficiency (genetic chemical imbalance) which I keep managed by multiple means. I don't like chemicals like SSRI, but I've tried them; I have found amino acid therapy (natural, vitamins) to be a better course for me. I also got counseling briefly to help, and basically that helped me to get my life in order in a more preventative way (I used to be very disorganized and make bad choices, which, naturally, brought on more anxiety. Turning that around helped). Meditation and mindfulness techniques became very helpful in dealing with them and frankly if I could only treat/manage it in one way, that would be the way I choose.

      But being a Witch, in addition, I have performed magic to help me continue to manage it. I have not found the need to use blood magic for that particular purpose but health & wellness spells in general, spells for peace of mind, etc. have been beneficial to boost my efforts.

      Hope that helps, please let me know if I can do anything else.

      Hi Siaon; mental discipline is key, and meditation is the best way to achieve it. It's got to be consistent, and ongoing. Best of luck!
