– incantations that cause illness, misfortune, damage, depriving people of the opportunity to enjoy life. To accomplish the curse, supernatural forces are often called as helpers. According to popular beliefs, the curse can spread to seven (9 or 13) generations, and can also be passed on to close people of the most affected person or his heirs.
Curses can be of several kinds: personal, from which only the person suffers and only indirectly – his family and friends, and generic, when several generations of one family are exposed. A generic curse may in turn be family or parental (if a negative influence is exerted by one of the family members, for example, the mother curses her children, or the children are parents, the brother curses his brother, etc.), magical or gypsy (the family is cursed by an outsider people), as well as ecclesiastical and so-called. “automatic” (manifested as a result of committing serious sins, sometimes without the influence of any of the people).
By imposing a curse, a person wants to take revenge on someone.
Most often it is really so. But in some cases, curses are imposed in order to protect an object (treasure, ritual object, structure or burial place). An example of this kind of influence is the curse of the mummy of Tutankhamun (almost all the participants in the excavation who found the tomb of the pharaoh and the clay tablet warning about the curse died within a short time under mysterious circumstances). Another example is the sad story of the diamond “Hope”, inserted in a statue of Buddha and later stolen by the French adventurer Jean-Claude Tavernier (this stone brought misery, misery or death to all its owners).
The impact of the curse affects very quickly.
Not necessary. Sometimes it manifests itself immediately, but in some cases it can take many years – and only then does the curse work.
In order to curse a person, they perform a certain ritual, accompanied by a verbal formula, which should be pronounced aloud.
In most cases, the curse is actually accompanied by the mentioned rituals with the use of certain objects (idols, stones or talismans, occult objects, etc.). But the verbal formula does not necessarily have to be pronounced aloud – sometimes it is enough to say it mentally or to write, or even simply enter a certain state of the soul, directing feelings and thoughts to the object of influence.
The curse that is sent destroys also the one who pronounces it.
This is indeed so. The curse is the most dangerous of the magical effects, so the negative consequences (the so-called “rollback”, sometimes causing considerable health problems, distorted perception of reality, insanity, etc.) after it is pronounced is not only cursed, but also the magician who sends a curse , and even relatives and loved ones of the sorcerer. Therefore, after the initiation of the adept of this direction of magic (Magia Maleficio) most often stops any contact with people close to him, so as not to cause trouble on them. In some cases, magicians use various kinds of objects (piercing-cutting, gold jewelry, large money bills) to free themselves from the negative energy generated by their activities, and then toss these things in crowded places. The one who lifts the above-mentioned object, will take a part of the “black” energy on himself, therefore it is not recommended to pick up things of this kind, even if they look very tempting and attractive. In addition, remember that “rollback” overtakes not only the mage operator, but also the customer of harmful effects.
Any mage can send and remove a curse.
No, only black magicians are engaged in cursing, and they lead a rather closed way of life. But to neutralize this kind of impact (remove the curse) can both black and white magician.
Only professional mages can cast a strong curse.
Yes, it is. In addition, it is believed that the most dangerous are the curses sent by authoritative people: rulers, representatives of the royal family, priests, etc. However, ordinary people can also send a very effective curse. For example, the greatest power is possessed by the curse pronounced by a person who is at death, since the whole life force of a dying person is concentrated in one verbal formula. Equally dangerous are the curses uttered by people who do not have the opportunity to defend themselves or take revenge on the offender in a different way (the poor, weakened and sick people, etc.)
To strengthen the curse, sorcerers use wax figures.
Indeed, in this magical ritual, a portrait (photograph) or figure is often used, symbolizing the victim of this impact. In ancient times, in many countries of the East, Africa and Europe, figures of this kind were made of wax, in addition, rags, clay or wooden, as well as dolls made from crumbs, sometimes replaced by animal hearts or quickly decaying objects. To enhance the effect on them, certain marks were made, fixed something related to the person being cursed (parts of clothing, hair, excrement, dust from the soles of shoes or ground taken from the trail, etc.).
Gypsies have an innate propensity to inflict curses.
This is not quite true. Gypsies are a people of magicians, although they lost most of their knowledge, but they retained strong energy protection. Therefore, any negative impact in their direction (bad words and thoughts, physical aggression) is returned to the offender with redoubled force, even if the gypsy herself does not perform the rite of subject corrupting or curses the aggressor. Therefore, the most correct behavior towards Roma is complete disregard for their presence (in this case, even if the gypsy will express negative wishes to you – they will not be effective). You should never give them money, and if you give it away, you do not need to regret it, and even more so you can not argue with representatives of this people, take something from them or give them your personal things. If the meeting ended not in the best way – you need to go home as soon as possible and take a shower, imagining that the water jets wash away all the negative information from the aura.
The crown of celibacy and the seal of loneliness are synonyms.
No, these are different results of negative energy impact (most often – a curse that aims to “close the gender”). The seal of loneliness is expressed by the fact that representatives of the opposite sex do not pay attention to a person. The crown of celibacy is manifested differently – and the partner may have a lot of people, and the relationship with them can be good, but neither does it usually happen before marriage or before the wedding.
Anathema is a church curse.
Anathema (from the Greek “excommunication”) is an excommunication from the church, accompanied by expulsion from society and the cessation of all kinds of communication. It was the highest church punishment for the most serious sins (schism, heresy, betrayal of Orthodoxy). It is believed that the anathema is reflected not only on a single person, but also on his descendants – up to the seventh tribe. In the case when a person devoted to anathema repented – this kind of punishment could be removed from him (sometimes posthumously). In the period from XIII to XVII centuries. this type of punishment was accompanied by a psalmocat (from the Greek “curse of the psalms”) – one of the varieties of God’s court, which was punished severely, as well as people who have committed a criminal offense and are hiding from the court. The psalmocatary had as its goal the calling on the health, life and property of the perpetrator of lifetime perdition (in particular, the body of a man, falling into the wrath of God, would blacken, swell and begin to decay for several days, and after death – not to be decayed, preserving all its disgrace) .The ceremony was performed in the temple by seven priests, who after the liturgy put on their garments turned inside out, re-shoes from left to right and vice versa. After that they went out into the middle of the temple, settled around a vessel with vinegar with the quicklime put in it, took in the hands black resin candles, and read out certain passages from the Psalter. The release (permission) of the curse mentioned could also have been accomplished by the servants of the church during a similar ritual (accompanied by reading other passages from the text, other paraphernalia and carried out in the traditional vestments) in case the perpetrator sincerely repented.
A person who has committed a grave sin will suffer from the curse of God.
No, God does not curse anyone. But the person who commits any serious misconduct against the laws of life (for example, murder) earns a personal curse, i.e. He excludes himself from certain relationships with the universe. In this case, psychics can see above the head of a man a dark cap, through which the life-force from the World to the individual can not penetrate, which leads to the loss of vital signs, mental and physical degradation, and in some cases also causes oncological diseases. Such a curse can be transmitted “up to the seventh tribe” from father to son, ie. grows into a generic one.
The presence of a curse can be determined by some unpleasant events happening in the life of a person or family for a long time.
Yes, and the events mentioned will differ slightly depending on the type of curse. For example, in a family carrying the seal of a patrimonial curse, certain hereditary diseases can be manifested in the female (male) line, the continuation of the genus stops (children either are not born at all, or die in infancy, or only girls are born, most often unhealthy). The same kind of curse can manifest itself differently: a person loses everything several times in his life than he had (family, housing, business, income), and even if he has enough strength to start all over again in a new place, after a few years the story repeats itself again and again . Also, the curse can be manifested by various tragic events, recurrent in human life, diseases, the birth of children with various deformities, etc.
A generic curse can last a very long time, because it is constantly fueled by the evil power of the magician who hired him.
This is not quite true. After all, the generic curse continues to work even after the magus who has made him die. Such a stability of negative energy input is created not at the expense of the power of the magician or ill-wisher, who was the “customer” of the curse, but because of the constant skepticism of the people who fell under the above-mentioned impact and suffered from it. When people in a family, pursued by misfortunes and troubles, begin to suspect that someone has cursed them (and an endless chain of minor and major troubles only strengthens their confidence in this conclusion) – they themselves “feed” with their fears and hatred the negative information created by magician, making it all the stronger. Moreover – the curse is able to penetrate into the DNA of people, changing for the worse their heredity. As a result, for generations, representatives of the damned family will suffer from problems, passing from the father to the son, from mother to daughter the sad news about the “curse of the clan”, and with it – and the growing connection with the negative energy structure, the parent of which has long been gone living. In order to break the vicious circle of misfortunes, it is not enough just to remove the curse from one or all of the family members – one should also completely change their life position, replacing the established fear of misfortune and trouble in positively setting the perception of life as a bright and joyful gift of God.
If the curse is concentrated in an object, it is only necessary to get rid of it – and the problem will be solved.
Unfortunately, this is not the case.This method is good for getting rid of spoilage, and from the curse – the impact of stronger and targeted – little helps. Firstly, the object of this kind is most often a kind of jewelry that is inherited, and getting rid of such a thing is rather difficult, if only because of greed. If the house is cursed, then he himself, and the place where the dwelling was once built, has a negative impact not on every person, but only on representatives of a particular kind. Secondly, even if the object that accumulates negative energy is sold to someone or planted – not only will it not lose its effectiveness (in passing bringing a lot of misfortunes to the new owner), but also after a while will return to a family suffering from a curse . Sometimes such a return occurs, as it were, accidentally, after several generations, when in the family and thinking about a thing that brought troubles to their distant ancestors. Such a thing can lose its power only after a ritual aimed at removing the curse, not only from the subject itself, but from the whole race.
In order to protect yourself against curses, you need to imagine a mirror wall between yourself and people.
The use of various thought images to protect against negative energy effects is indeed used quite often: both the mirror wall mentioned and the representation of the golden umbrella, opened above the head and trimmed with golden muslin. The thought images of golden clothes, the huge petal of a red rose, into which you can wrap yourself, like in a blanket, of the St. Andrew’s flag, which protects and protects the body, are also a good defense. Taking a shower, you need to imagine that along with the streams of water on the body streams of golden energy flow, washing away all the bad. The image of the same rain (only the jets in this case will have a bluish-silver hue) can be supplemented by an appeal to the Lord with a request for protection and purification from negative energy. In addition, prayer has a strong protective effect (Jesus’ Prayer, Creed, Prayer to the Life-Giving Cross, Psalm 90, etc.), church rite of sabotage, and conspiracies.
From curses well protect various objects-amulets.
Yes, it is considered that, for example, a pin, worn on the underside of clothes on the left side of the bottom by a fastener, like a red woolen thread tied on the left wrist, is able to shield from curses. In some cases, the role of amulets is performed by various semi-precious stones. For example, wearing agate, striped or white agate can help defend against the curse. And in order for the stone to become really “your”, you need to wash it with warm water and soap, wipe it dry, hold it, stroke it, and talk to it, ask for protection, and then for a while, place it next to the icons. To give such a stone to one of the friends is not worth it – it is difficult to “reconfigure” the crystals, passing from hand to hand, they can not only lose a positive charge, but also “get sick” and even “die.” But relatives (especially close ones) can transfer an amulet stone, as in the family the “energy mood” is about the same, and the crystal can easily be switched to a new owner. Strong talismans are the cross, icons, incense. A protective function is also performed by some aromatic oils (rosemary, myrrh, sandalwood). Very effective means of harmful energy impact are some plants: celandine, bluehead, kupen, comfrey, starodubka, blueberry grass, hops, rhubarb (they should be consumed as infusions and broths), frankincense and thistle (they need to fumigate the room).
The singing will help to remove the curse.
The ancient Slavs did have a ritual used to remove the generic curses, and consisted in a special reproduction of sounds that was combined with the performance of certain rituals.At the same time, maximum attention was paid to the correctness of breathing, and singing itself was by no means loud – the sound was uttered in an undertone only at the beginning of the ceremony, then continued to be sung out to oneself, while the whole body had to vibrate in a given key. Only with the right combination of breathing, mental concentration, ritual actions and sound achieved the desired effect. Similar rites exist in many peoples of the East and in our day.
