Let me ask you this...Does Christianity and prayer work? Does confession work?...the only real answer lies within ourselves...I am a practitioner of old school Witchcraft as well as Vodou...do they 'work'? yes for me they certainly do..both spiritually and in the spellwork sense....would my path work for you or anyone else for matter? no probably not and I have to say I'd hope not really...my personal path is for solely for me and what works for me on a spiritual and magickal level shouldnt work for anyone else....

Luckily or unluckily You have landed in a place of witches.Mylot is having a good number of witches as i read post on witch crafts. The word witch was originated from the black art and though many witches of modern times claim that they are white ,yellow and red all of them are black if they practice the spells and witch craft at least at one point of time. It is really difficult to resist the temptation to loot when you see a lot of un accounted or unclaimed money somewhere. The situation is same with the witch craft. When you know an aet and find ,that as quite successful who will not use it to their selfish aims?then he/she need to be a Christ or Buddha. Well i talked about the witch craft as i know it closely. As far as your question is concerned my answer is very simple. A Big YES.all these nasty things work and works well. It is nothing but the universal energy that is at work. It depends upon the ability of the practitioner to harness the energy . It varies. If Christ could move a mountain, a black magician may move a stone maximum. But if however any body uses it for selfish or evil causes it recoils on the person and destroy him for sure. I have seen many such incidents. The writer was also subject to all these black work since he is in such a field and had effectively protected by the almighty. If you have a guide , a preceptor under whose protection you live it would be easy for you to come out of the negative energy. All said and done it is a very difficult situation if somebody put a spell and if that other person is not aware about the fact. He/she suffer in silence and finally fall a victim to the act of course if the fate does not decide otherwise. If you want to know this to overcome any problems i would suggest to learn mediation or any spiritual healing like pranic healing or other similar systems. If on other hand if you want to learn the same be careful to abide by the law of karma else your own karma may haunt you later, if it is not used to serve the humanity. You can read more about the topic and related matters in my blog http://raveendranathmenon.blogspot.com

Witchcraft is NOT evil..a person may be bad, but the magick isn't. Being a witch myself, I have never made any such claim that I'm white or black..since I KNOW that there's no such thing in magick..nor in human beings. We're both, niether, everything, nothing. Balance is the key thing being..most are taught directly NOT to abuse the gift of magick, and use it for harmful ways. Or selfish ones. It is not selfish to take a bath..to care for your skin is it? So then why would it be selfish to use magick to help your spirit heal? Or when no other option's available to attempt to salvage a possibly deadly situation? This is what witches do. Most of us anyway. You might be surprised to learn that prayer, meditation, healing, and even christian or other religious 'miracles' are a form of magick. If only in their simplest forms. Spells and rituals are just like those, only concentrated slightly more. SAME thing, as for where the word witch originated, no one TRULY knows..so please on't claim to. The only definition that matters any longer is the one in the dictionary. In it's most simplest and unbiased form it means "Someone who works with magick and casts spells" There is no such thing as black or white magick. Magick is simply that magick. It's like nature, is nature inherentlygood or evil? No..it's both and niehter..it's PEOPLE that define this. Believe me honey, I'm poorer than dirt..you think I'd be if I was evil and would do what you claim witches do? Please..don't view the world simply. Believe me, I know there's more shades of gray than there's just the two black and white where the world is concerned..there's all ranges of good, evil..and inbetween. The world can be far more sinaster and grim without viewing things polarly..excluding all other possibilities and peoples in between it all..and losing sight of what's true. I respect your beliefs, I do..but this is what I KNOW to be true, what I've studied for years to be true, what I've proven if only to myself to be true. I'm sorry if you had a brush with a few nasty people..or know some who have, but you can't say all one people's this or that..it's just not possible. That's what Hitler did..look how much THAT sucked.

Well friend I have given you a plus since i found you sincere and blatantly frank.I liked it. But the fact that this writer have first hand experience of such people. I am neither generalizing nor do i judge. But plenty of my clients suffer in silence and we find such act as a cruelty, a cruelty to the humanity. Glad to know that you find solace in helping others and if that is the end of any art, that deserves appreciation.

well for one you can't be a non believer.. just like if your a christian and you pray and your a non believer nothing will happen.. alot of it is the power of the mind if you want it bad enough and believe in it, it will happen.. see with witch craft we have many gods and each one of them are as powerful as peoples one god. You praise your god just as we praise our many gods. alot of people have abilities to where the mind is working over time but they don't see it. alot of studies have been done about this but people that don't understand wont get why other people have these abilities.

Yes I believe in it..since I do practice it, it'd be kind of silly (not to mention impossible) if I didn't, huh? ^_^ For me it works.
