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.

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?

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

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.

        I was tricked into participating in a blood ritual that has caused some very unsettling results.

        I was told to go outside and ground myself under a tree with some "friends" of mine, and I sat down and started to meditate. I was told to breathe in and out, very deeply, over and over again, and as I did this, a vast gust of wind picked up all around us.

        A guy I was with then sat down in front of me, and then said, "Here, give me your hands." like he was going to hold my hand, and as I held his hands, I opened my eyes and noticed he had taken a dagger and cut the palm of his hand, and by the time I realized this, he had poured his blood into my left palm.

        The blood felt like acid. It burned as it sat on my hand, and then it felt like my hand was being ripped open and something "entered" in and possessed me. Whatever happened to me was demonic in nature, and now I'm dealing with heavy Spiritual Warfare and demonic attacks. What the hell happened to me?! I need help! What did he do to me and how do I get this torment to stop?!

        I am in a similar situation. Long story short, we were stupid kids messing in things we should not have. We...ugh this will sound dumb...were getting members together for a circle, practicing spells at his house, you name it. Blood was included, virginity taken...tmi, I know, sorry. Though I did move on, am happily married with kids, I am not able to separate that bond. I am not in love with him. It feels more like an invisible chain that keeps us attached. We ignore each other and yet I have dreams about him in trouble. Last time we saw each other he was telling me how distraught he was that he couldn't find me for a period of time.

        Anyway, I did not continue practicing any form of magick, though I respect practitioners.

        So what do I do? And what did WE do?

        Firstly I must tell you I just now came across this article and have never used blood magic. I haven't any affiliation with this site or the writer.

        Now this, I've been a Wiccan (which is a religion) for more than half of my life. I only practiced the white magic for a few years but feel the pull back. Nobody I've ever known just jumps in and starts casting spells without knowing everything you do has major consequences. Not all magic is worked by Wiccans and not all Wiccans work magic. Not all magic is white, nor is it black. Just as in life there is a balance. An equal reaction for every action. You can't cross the street without looking both ways then blame the car for running you over. You can't hold gasoline and light a match without expecting a flame. You cannot look up magic spells, perform one without doing your own due dilligence and then blame the writer. You alone are at fault. I suggest you find a real magic worker for help then stay away for good. I hope you learn this life lesson. Everything you do comes back to you. 3 times good, 3 times bad. Consider your life moves carefully. Karma, she's a witch.

        I doubt you will answer me , but I must tell you this. You need to re-phrase you article. You are making it sound like it is ok, perfectly nomal, and ok to use blood magic. It is NOT! It is very dangerous regardless of what "harmless" thing you say it is. I was, (long time ago now) under , lets say psychic attack. from someone connected to me in several, and various ways. I wanted to end it, to protect myself. BAD IDEA!!!! I am not a practicing witch, wizard, magi, sorcerer etc. This person was... and I knew for many years that this person was. I had seen evidence of her power, so I decided, what the heck? Lots of articles out there that say it is ok, as long as you are not trying to hurt someone. WARN your readers it is NOT ok unless you have many many many years of teachings on how to control it, and more importantly how it will have an effect that you did not authorize, or WANT! In case you actually read your comment section, let me clairify the situation. I do not want to harm anyone, even this person that was definately harming me. I just wanted it to stop. I had never EVER tried to cast any kind of spell before. Reading several articles such as yours and having actually spoken to several people that are witches (all were female, it that a thing? Can only females be witches?) They all said, "it is not dangerous to strenthen a spell with blood". Boy oh boy were all of them, and you , wrong! I almost killed the mother of my children! People, do NOT use blood in a magic ritual!!!!! It does not let you know in advance WHAT it will do, of the price it will require! If you care to respond use sammydf@protonmail.com

        Many years ago my ex-partner (early in the relationship) and I did a blood bonding ceremony that was terribly nieave. It turned out to be very emotionally painful situation that has followed me more than 20 years now. We combined blood together without having any clue how dangerous is was or what the lingering consequences were. The blood bond worked alright -- until her bitter end last year. For 13 years -- we could not be happy together but the bond kept us from being happy with anyone else. Please be VERY careful with blood magic - you can't take it back once it done.

        I just wondered how to do you break blood magic spell when a group a large group is targeting a person to energy harvest them. Steal their health, I know what they have done and it is horrific. I manage to bind them with body fluid but they got hold of blood without permission though Dr. Now they are literally stealing heart beats night time regeneration and the whole family are in danger. I can't get their blood but I have their some of their essence. I am asking for protection not for personal gain, they have every person that has been intimate with them. It's 24/7 attack to an innocent. I don't know much about magic but I am getting a crash course.

        I can tell you with confidence that when I understood the power that is released when applying The Blood of Jesus Christ to my failing heart, I was given a new heart both physically and spiritually. All you need to do is read the ancient text located in the King James Version of the Holy Bible. Read the chapter in Isaiah chapter 53. No wonder Jesus said "I AM The LIFE! He knows that the life is in the blood and He shed Holy Blood for us, blood that was not contaminated with sin, His Blood was pure, given to Him directly from The Almighty through the Holy Spirit. Now that you have read this, The Blood of Jesus is applied to your conscience through your eye gates and you must repent of your evil doings and seek power through The Blood of Jesus to be at peace.

        Curious. I was busy with a little "affirmation" thing, about to incorporate it in to sigil magic. Next thing I knew I was busy with a blade and ended up writing the key words in blood. I thought I would just incorporate that in to a spell instead. Any thoughts?

        And no one really calls them selves a warlock. It is just another word that means you can't be trusted.

        The most commonly accepted etymology derives warlock from the Old English wǣrloga meaning "oathbreaker" or "deceiver".

        question: So

        "I never use it to target other people without their permission"

        What if I'm doing this for someone who has a chronic disease and is in almost constant pain? The intent is to pray to a certain Goddess for the relief of her pain. She isn't....er...aware I'm praying for her. I don't think she's object, but I think she'd be uncomfortable that someone was doing such a thing for her.

        As long as the intend behind it is benign, is it OK?

        My husband recently passed away. We loved each other so much we were literally joined at the hip. I have been practicing for many many years and he knew this. The one thing I have never done was blood magic. But now I am very sorely tempted. I have had lucid dreams of everyone that had died in my life since I was a child except my husband. I want to take a few drops of my blood, mix it with his ashes, and wear it in a small glass vial around my neck as I sleep.

These things were a white candle woth blood drops on them, mirror when 4 smeared thumbprints on it with glasses sitting perfectly on the mirror as if it was on a face. Outside there's a branch that is angled in a certain direction with a pair of panties on it. I removed it one day and the next day another branch in the same spot angled in the same direction appeared there again stuck in the ground. Any idea with whats going in here!?

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

        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?

        I think my best friend may have had blood magick preformed on him. The signs and way he is acting are all there & he has only bee around this girl for less than 2 weeks. What are the options to weaken or break what she has done?

        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.

        can you use blood magick to dispel a demon? for example, a demon is attached to someone because someone else sent it to that person. can you use blood magick in the right way, on the right day, the right night, the right circumstances to dispel said demon?

        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?

        Just a suggestion, instead of a pin, suggest using a lancing device, such as the ones they sell for diabetics in pharmacies. They are sterile and very sharp. When I did it I used a tattoo needle. I do stick and poke tattoos, so the needle comes sterilized.

        Hi Victor. You could always use blood in magic, the question is, should you? Depends on the spell.. sure, I might use blood to make a major change. Stop an addiction, for example... but for minor changes, it might be a bit overshooting. Like using a sledge hammer to crack a walnut.

        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.

        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 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).

        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.

        Would I be able to talk to the dead using my blood? Would I be able to make two love each other using both of their blood?

        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?

        Hey can we use our own blood to somehow raise or talk to the dead? Without hurting or invading the soul.And if thats possible would we have to ask the spirit permission to use our blood on it? If so how?
