I am a Black Witch. There. I’ve said it. A professional, full-time, genuine Black Witch. And the question I am asked more than any other… is Black Magic real?
Absolutely! Well, magic is real, but it’s not necessarily always Black or White.
A Brief History of Witchcraft
Long ago – long before doctors, and lawyers, and therapists – the world was full of people – as it is today. These people still got. Occasionally they still felt wronged and wanted justice. And other times they would get their hearts broke. They would feel lonely, or inadequate, or lost, or unable to cope – just as people do today.
But back in those days, these people would visit someone like me. A Witch. Someone who would give them a potion, or cast a spell, or lift a curse – someone who could put the world to rights again.
Wasn’t it all hocus pocus?
Some of those potions that witches were administering all those years ago have since been proven by scientists to have had medicinal properties. But there is still a lot of unexplained ‘magic’ (or magick as it is sometimes spelt) that has been passed down through the generations.
Witches and Witchcraft is alive and well in the twenty-first century. And if it didn’t work… well frankly I’d be out of a job.
But isn’t Black Magic and Witchcraft evil?
Imagine there is a little old lady living in a hut just outside the village. Nobody knows much about her but they do know that she seems to have the power to solve their problems.
If they have a cold, she has a potion they can take, and a few days later they’re starting to feel a whole lot better. If they’re feeling lonely, or they’re in need of a husband, she has a spell – and a few days later they’re attracting the attentions of the gorgeous man in the next. Word spreads – there’s this lady can perform spells, and they work!
That’s a lot of power for one little old lady.
For over 500 years the Church, the establishment, the scientists of the day – anyone for whom power and respect was a commodity – sought to blacken the name of Witches, Witchcraft and Magic. That little old lady is evil. She works with the devil. Her Magic is BLACK MAGIC.
Well you know how quickly negative gossip spreads!
For much of the 15th 16th and 17th century this onslaught of negative PR meant that anyone suspected of being a witch was routinely tortured or executed. Even today witches are portrayed as ugly, evil creatures. Very little has actually changed
Does Black Magic really work?
If you mean can I use ‘black’ magic to fix your broken heart, find you a new husband, seek revenge on your cheating ex-wife or lift a curse that has been put on you then yes, it works.
If however you want me to turn you into a dragon, make sure you win the lottery, change the minds of a jury or spring your no good boyfriend from prison – then no, that I can’t do.
And how do I know? Well I’ve cast hundreds of spells and curses over the years and have built up quite a reputation for success. I’ve had invitations to weddings from Brides and Grooms who have found their soul mates after a successful spell casting, I’ve been sent photos of yachts, houses and jewellery that proud owners never thought they would own and I’ve been invited to the opening of so many new shops and business ventures that were only ever a dream before they had me cast a spell for them. So ‘yes’ it most definitely works.
I am the modern-day counterpart to the solitary young woman, living in the hut, in the woods, in ancient times. Except that I do not live in a hut. Or in the woods. Like my sisters before me I charge a fee for my services and I certainly do not take on every case I am offered. But if I can help, I will.
