Black Magic

What is Black Magic?

There are different types of black magic and all articles that you’ll find below are safe to cast. Usually, black magic is something that takes advantage of the negative, and as such, it is very dangerous, and it is not recommended at all to approach this phenomenon.

The witch who exercises black magic uses formulas that “exceed” the laws of nature and which are aimed at making his/her power wider and stronger.

However, my way of approaching black magic isn’t dangerous for a spell caster, and for others that are usually a part of the spellwork. Being an experienced spell caster, I use black magic to help people manifest their desires much quicker, compared to white magick spells.

Black magic involves typical ingredients like candles, oils, herbs, and so on but sometimes also blood and body parts like hair and teeth.

What is Black Magic Used for?

Black magic is the art of creating illusions and tricks in which objects, people or situations are manipulated. It goes beyond what human logic understands. Therefore, dark magic is any set of rituals, ceremonies, spells and traditions that relate to the dark desires of human being, including evil spirits, symbology and curses.

What is the Difference Between White Magic and Black Magic?

Black magic and white magic are complete opposites. It is believed that white magic exists to counteract all the negative effects of black witchcraft. While white magic channels good vibes and intentions, black magic channels negative emotions and energies such as hate, anger and violent intentions.

How Can I Learn Black Magic?

Learning black magic is a bit complex so you need to take baby steps when learning about the practices and the uses of this type of magic. When you turn to practical practice, you should cast easy spells first to see if you can handle and channel the energy correctly and safely before diving into more powerful stuff.

What are the Essentials for Doing Black Magic?

The essentials for doing black magic are black candles and other witchy tools of your choice. Black magic is all about using items belonging to the target of the spell, including pictures of them, their possessions, or even their hair and nails.

How do I get rid of Black Magic?

There are many counter-spells you can cast to break a black magic spell. If you’ve been cursed, you may need some extra support from a powerful and experienced witch to break it. Cleansing your home, cleansing your body and staying positive is a must.

How can I Protect Myself Against Black Magic?

Protection spells are definitely a great help when defending yourself against black magic, but you can also cleanse your energy with smudging. Amulets, sigils and prayers for protection can give you extra defense. Staying positive while dealing with black magic attacks is mandatory, so that the light can defeat the darkness.

Practicing magic takes skill and patience and isn’t recommended to do it alone in most cases. I provide more than 140 “do it yourself” articles and more than 300 “do it yourself” spells for educational purposes, but it is strongly recommended that you consult an experienced spell caster such as myself and allow me to do the work for you.

This way you know it’s being done by someone experienced and knowledgeable and I’m also always here to answer questions about your casting and provide follow-up at no additional charge.

Dawn’s Thoughts on the Black Magick

Black magick is a largely subjective term for describing magick based on intent or style of practice. There are several ways to view black magic as a term that has been used in many different contexts. We will attempt to begin with the most widely accepted views.

Black Magic as the Opposite of White Magic

In this view, Black Magic is associated with dark deities, death, secrets, night-time, yin, and the ending of things. If magic can be viewed as a circle, then there is Black, White, and Grey magic that the initiate practitioner must study to become whole and enlightened. Some here view White Magick as the magic of the patriarchy and black magic as the magick of the divine feminine.

Black Magic as Evil or Harmful Magic

In this view, Black Magic is associated with things that should not exist at all. It is an abomination rather than a part of the cycle of life and death. For some, merely to consider using Black Magic is to risk one’s future happy existence. Learning about evil is something that pollutes the mind, soul, and body to even know about it. This sort of magic moves the soul(s) away from enlightenment, even as knowledge is gained.

In some modern traditions, evil or black magic is defined as any magic that does harm or that influences or overrides the will of another regardless of methods, intention, or the end result.

In some cases, particularly in tribal situations evil is in the eye of the beholder. Magic to defeat one’s enemies would be seen as evil or black magic by the enemies or but good by the community of the caster.

Black Magic as Defined by Spell Ingredients

In some cultures and traditions, black magic is defined according to the ingredients used in a spell. These items tend to be those viewed as unsavory by the community at large and may include human body parts and other unsavory items such as excreta, animal parts and/or poisonous plants, depending on the sensibilities of the community.

These items may be used for spells that would otherwise be considered beneficial, such as healing and fertility spells, yet would still be viewed as an abomination. However, magic that does not use these items is usually viewed as benign.

It may be interesting to note that many (but not all) of these cultures do perform animal sacrifices (or have historically alongside the above beliefs) and would not view the sacrifice of an animal as an act of black magic. After all, what’s the difference between killing an animal to feed your human guests or killing an animal to feed a helpful spirit?

Black Magic as Primitive Magic

The term Black Magic may be applied in an ethnocentric manner to magick that seems primitive, unenlightened or undignified. A practitioner might consider any magic Black that uses animal sacrifice (just as an example) but is it Black because it ends the life of the animal, because it is too “earthy” (or tribal, or primitive, or alien to “civilized” culture) or because death/blood really does attract entities that wish to do evil to living things?

Magick involving possession may be seen as black magic by those who do not understand what is going on, even though they may, in other contexts, revere one who claims the Lord speaks through them. Magick involving vigorous dancing may be seen as black magick because it seems licentious or chaotic to one who doesn’t wish to understand its value.

It must be noted that perhaps not coincidentally, many of these practices apply to magic practiced by people who literally have darker skin. Here in the U.S., magic associated with Voodoo or Hoodoo may be referenced as black magick with all of the baggage that entails, which Wicca-style spells to accomplish the same purpose is approvingly deemed white magick.
