Dark Magick

The Turkey Curse is a curse that is placed on those who seek to harm you; it is used to disorient as well as to frighten off potential predators. This curse is known to be the most beneficial when you are in a circumstance in which you have lost the power or control of the situation.

An example of this would be if you were to be randomly getting mugged on the street and you required immediate justice, you would use the Turkey Curse to debilitate your attackers.

How It Works:

The first thing that you would do in the event of an attack is to stop suddenly in your tracks, drop all of your stuff, and close your eyes. This confuses the attackers right away. But then begin to yell out loud over and over again while spinning three times in a circle:

‘GOBBLE GOBBLE GOBBLE GOBBLE GOBBLE GOBBLE’

Then spit at the feet of those you are cursing and while doing so, focus all of your intention on them becoming disoriented while all the while preparing yourself to make a fast exit.

The reason this is such an effective tool when trying to defend yourself is that typically, common criminals are more afraid of crazy people and disease then they are anything else. Therefore part of why this works is because you are technically scaring them. Doing so will at the very least distract them enough so that you can get away and at best you make them leave you alone.

An Electrical Variation:

The point of the turkey curse in this instance is also used to inflict disorientation into the minds of the attackers in regards to machinery, electricity or methods of communication. It has been said to be the curse that causes even a person’s toaster to be out to get them.

In this curse you would focus on any and all electrical objects around the attacker going wrong. Trying to shock them or cause them physical harm. Also this curse is said to last for 30 days as a result of this attacker’s bad ways.

Beware:

If you were to try to use this curse on someone who didn’t deserve it, say for example just because you are just mad at them and are having a bad day, then it is said that the curse would reverse itself and you would instead be the person effected. Keep this in mind when participating with the Turkey Curse.

The energy behind this particular curse is chaotic and not something that can be controlled. It fights on your behalf for justice so that you can get to safety but it is not meant to be misused in any way.

The Discordian Method

On the more light and fluffy side of the world, the practitioners of Discordia, also known as Discordians (commonly known for their…unconventional methods) also use the Turkey Curse but in a modified way and for different reasons.

Discordians use the Turkey Curse as a way of neutralizing negative energy that is being emitted by a particularly crabby or cranky person to whom they refer as Greyfaces. Greyfaces are people who are stuck in their ways, unhappy, and generally not pleasant to be around.

Most times, Discordians will refer to the GrayFace as the government, or those who are stuck walking a monotonous and lifeless path. The Turkey Curse as designated by Discordia is designed to shake the person loose of their stalemate so that they can see life for the abundant and potentially prosperous place that it can be.

You can also do this to yourself, should you be experiencing a time where you are taking life too seriously and you are feeling a lackluster about the goodness in life; doing so, will help to raise your vibrations back up to more of a workable middle ground.

Discordians try not to take themselves or others, or even life for that matter too seriously, because life, to them, is just a random bunch of stuff that happens and it’s just not worth getting worked up over. The Turkey Curse is used to help those that are in need of a jovial ‘kick in the pants,’ spiritually speaking. And their version (according to the Principia Discordia) goes something like this:

The Turkey Curse, Discordian Style

“Take a foot stance as if you were John L. Sullivan preparing for fisticuffs. Face the particular greyface you wish to short-circuit, or towards the direction of the negative aneristic vibration that you wish to neutralize. Begin waving your arms in any elaborate manner and make motions with your hands as though you were Mandrake feeling up a sexy giantess.

Chant, loudly and clearly:

GOBBLE GOBBLE GOBBLE GOBBLE GOBBLE

The results will be instantly apparent.”

As you can see, the technique utilized by the Discordians is a funnier way to go, but chances are you can use this exact same style to disorient potential attackers. However that does change the spirit in which the Discordians practice this curse. But, they would most likely shrug their shoulders and say, ‘To each his own.’

About These Curses:

The first curse is for self-preservation of the physical kind, and the second example is for self-preservation of the spiritual kind. Health and safety are your birthrights. Happiness and joy is like having a delicious desert. If you use the Turkey Curse wisely, you will find that you are a safer and happier person.

In this ritual the Greek Goddess Nemesis, a deity of fate and vengeance, is seen in the role of being the complementary opposite of ones ego referring to the inner self as the center of both personalities. Habits and actions taken against ones real desires create the opposite to the same degree and thereby form an anti-personality of ones ego, which in this case is identified with the principle of Nemesis.

Disturbances on the plane of reality due to actions against ones subconscious desires can be eliminated by ritual union with this personal demon-sister/brother and enable one to reach ones inner self, which is defined as the mean value of both the personalities.

The effect of this ritual, if performed correctly, would by definition be fatal. Therefore the operation is strictly limited to the part of the psyche which the magician wishes to explore. A Sigil representing this portion of the psyche is forcibly activated during the ritual in order that the magician may seek answers to his problems within the chosen area in the personality.

No specific wishes or desires can be used for this purpose, only general ones. This is a necessary restriction to avoid being overwhelmed by any unpleasant effects. The magician should be aware of this when constructing the Sigil.

Nemesis Conjuration:

Posture of the Rune Perthro

The ritual is performed sitting on the ground in the posture of the Rune Perthro. The head may rest on the lower part of the arms, and the face should be covered by the cowl of the robe.

Perthro is the rune of fate. Perthro is not a gentle or passive rune, although it is aligned with a feminine polarity.

Perthro is the relentless force of water. Unstoppable, controllable only to a point, and then, suddenly – with no warning – the water is out of control, drowning everything and smashing it to bits and pieces as flotsam is slammed and hammered into buildings or structures. Perth clears a path for change.

Statement of intent:

It is my will to take a step towards the center of my self by union with my opposite through this Sigil!

Creating the Sigil:

Write out your statement of intent, modifying it in any way that feels appropriate. Then remove all the vowels from the sentence, and rewrite all the remaining letters. Next remove all the repeating letters so that it’s now just a string of non repeating consonants. Make a symbol or picture by combining the remaining letters with the Perthro symbol. Play with your design until it looks aesthetically pleasing to you and the combination of the letters are hidden. In other words, you want it to look not at all like what it started out to be.

Now, let the meaning of the symbol, let your statement of intent go completely. Allow yourself to forget the Symbol’s meaning, forget the desire behind the original sentence completely. Remembering the desire ruins the ultimate effect. Destroy all the things you’ve written to make the Sigil. Let nothing be a reminder of its meaning. Remember only what it looks like.

Charging the Sigil:

This specific Sigil will be charged by having the image of it in your mind as you do the conjuration:

The following incantation is given while visualizing a winged figure of opposite sex who approaches the magician. The figure wears the chosen Sigil on his/her breast and is both beautiful and terrifying at the same time.

Incantation:

Come to me oh Nemesis,
mighty, terrifying and beloved sister.

Come to me oh Nemesis,
you, who are the goddess of my god,

you, who are the demon of my demon.

Come to me oh Nemesis,
you, who are the demon of my god,

you, who are the goddess of my demon.

Come to me oh Nemesis,
you, who are part of me which I am not,

you, who are the counterbalance on the scales of my fate.

Come to me oh Nemesis,
you, whose wings carry us to our mutual central Kia.

Come to me oh Nemesis,
you, who are my ultimate fear,
you, who are my ultimate desire.
you, with whom to unite is the sigh of
ecstasy and the silence of death.

Come to me oh Nemesis,
for you are my path and I am our aim
I call upon you to meet me in this Sigil.

Come to me oh Nemesis
and guide me through this Sigil to our mutual central Kia!

Start hyperventilation during the reading out of the incantation. The visualized figure with the Sigil coming closer and closer to finally melt into your own body. When this point is reached shout out:

ZodACAM VaPAAHe ANANAEL ZoDA Ah!
(I move the wings of the secret wisdom within me!)

End the ritual with laughter – this will banish any negativity, and cleanse and heal you and your surroundings.

While we do not recommend hexing or jinxing anyone, it may be useful to know how it might be done. With that in mind here is a really simple Houseplant Jinx Spell that uses War Water as the main ingredient.

War Water is easy to make. The recipe can be found at the Magickal Apothecary.

Sprinkle War Water on the leaves and roots of a really nice plant and give it to the target as a gift. To intensify the strength of the jinx, gather Spanish Moss, add it to the Malevolent form of War Water and sprinkle the plant with that instead.

With different magickal intentions, this spell will also reverse a jinx for someone you care about. Simply infuse the standard form of War Water with lots of positive energy and good intentions, sprinkle it over a really nice houseplant and give it to your friend as a gift. The iron in the war water will also act as a ghost and bad spirit repellent.

This is an old fashioned black candle Hoodoo revenge and retribution spell. Use with caution (if at all). These types of spells can easily rebound onto the spell caster.

Cut the top off a black jumbo candle, turn it upside down, and carve a new tip at what was the bottom. Carefully heat it a section at a time and press 99 whole pepper corns into it, all over the surface.

Place the candle in a saucer on top of the enemy’s name written on a piece of paper, and dress it by pouring a whole bottle of Crossing Oil over it.

At midnight, this mess is carried to a deserted crossroads, or, if possible, to the enemy’s yard while he or she is away. It is set down in the middle of a large X inside a circle made by walking backward while sprinkling Crossing Powder diagonally from one corner of the crossroads or yard to the other, and then around the X in a circle.

As the candle burns, a detailed list of the enemy’s sins is spoken aloud followed by the spell caster’s requirements for true, justified, and lasting retribution.

This is an old hoodoo hurtful jinxing spell. These types of spells must be used with caution (if at all) because the energy created will almost inevitably rebound onto the spell caster. That being said, here it is:

Some folks obtain the intimate personal concerns of an enemy, such as hair or fingernail clippings. Mix them with black pepper, salt, red pepper, and sulfur and stop the mixture up in a bottle. It is then hidden under the enemy’s doorstep where it must be walked over. This will cause pain and sorrow to the enemy.

The get what they deserve spell can either be a hex or gift it all depends on the person you’re casting the spell over, and what karma has in store for them. (Bad luck or Good luck).

You will need the following items for this spell:

  • Piece of paper
  • Pencil
  • A picture of the person, if not a picture then their full name spelled CORRECTLY.
  • A lighter or match
  • Something you can put the paper in, a tin or bowl.

Casting Instructions:

This spell is for those who believe a harmful spell can backfire, in this case you’re not causing harm, unless they deserve it.

Take your piece of paper write the words Get what you deserve on one side and on the other write the persons full name, with correct spelling, or just a picture. Fold the paper anyway you like and burn it. Let it burn to ash, and the spell is complete. After you have completed this spell, it will take time for it to take effect, but have faith. The person will get what they deserve. If the person doesn’t deserve to be punished or harmed, the spell will simply give them good luck.

Note:

Spellwork done on other people has a tendency to rebound back to the spell caster. So, be prepared to also get what you deserve – which could be many good things. Or not..

For a month each night go into the woods have a blanket to sleep on or meditate on. At midnight gaze into the darkness and let it enter into your eyes you will see things. This is normal. Remain calm and gaze for an hour allowing yourself to see whatever is to be seen, to feel whatever is to be felt, to understand whatever there is to understand.

Don’t be afraid. The darkness will enter you and you into it. Will yourself into the womb of the great mother like at conception. Darkness is the first mother, the first primal force.

You might see her when you close your eyes. You might find it easy to sleep in a fetal position. When this happens, you may find that you have gained the ability to call the darkness out of you and spread it around yourself, creating a pool of mystery and quiet power.

Note: This can also be done on the night of the new moon. It’s a good way to tune into the energy and magick of the dark moon.

Here’s a simple Hoodoo War Water spell to rid yourself of an adversary:

  1. Write your adversary’s name and identifying information on a strip of brown paper.
  2. Place it in a jar and cover it with War Water.
  3. Seal it tight and hide it in a dark, secret place.
  4. Shake the jar periodically.

Once you have succeeded in ridding yourself of your adversary, pour the water and what’s left of the paper out at a crossroads far from your home. Be sure to throw the jar away.

I found these old old spells to protect oneself from enemies in a cool old book printed back in 1903. This section reads more like a short primer on black magick, and I’d advise against creating a lot of bad karma for yourself by trying these out on actual people. I do, however, think that it might be interesting to try using them on noncorporeal enemies such as: procrastination, poverty, racism, addictions, etc.

However you choose to use them, be wise and be warned. “If you wish evil to someone, the evil will come to you.” That being said, here they are:

1 – If you tie knots in the willow, you can slay a distant enemy.

2 – If you would bring your enemy to death, pour poison in his footprints.

3 – If you feel fear when you know you are safe, it will prove that when you are in danger you won’t think of fear.

4 – An image made of wax, named after an enemy or a person whom you wish ill, stuck full of pins and set before the fire, will cause the person named to pine away as the wax melts.

5 – Indians charm a piece of worsted and tie it across the path of an enemy or across the door, so that when he passes it, it will surely bring death upon himself.

6 – The Devonshire peasant hangs in his chimney corner a pig’s head stuck with thorns, believing that so doing his enemy will be pierced in like manner.

7 – A charm to be addressed to the spirit of the three winds: “Spirit of the three winds, hear me when I call. Go and make So-and-So go crazy !”

8 – Old Highlanders will still make the “deazil” around those whom they wish well. To go around a person in an opposite direction to the sun, is an evil incantation and brings ill fortune.

9 – Old women frequently cut a turf a foot long which their enemy has recently trodden upon, and hang it up in the chimney, to cause their enemy to wither away.

10 – The Tamils (a race of Southern India and Ceylon) believe that they can kill an enemy at a distance by a ceremony with the skull of a child.

11 – If you make a cut on the wall of the house of an enemy, the members of his household will quarrel. (India.)

12 – Take six new pins and seven needles, stick point to point in a piece of new cloth, and place it under the doorstep of your enemy; when he or she walks over it, they will lose the use of their legs.

13 – The following is a Finnish superstition: The image of an absent person is placed in a vessel of water and a shot aimed at it, thereby wounding or slaying a hated person at many miles’ distance.

14– If you can get a few strands of your enemy’s hair, bore a hole in a tree, put them in, and plug up the hole; you can thus give him a headache which cannot be relieved until his hair is taken out of the tree.

15 – To make trouble for an enemy, take some hair from the back of a snarling, yelping cur, some from a black cat, put them into a bottle with a tablespoonful of gunpowder, fill the bottle with water from a running brook, and sprinkle it in the form of three crosses on his doorstep, one at each end, and one in the middle.

16 – The negroes think that in order to make an evil charm effectual, they must sacrifice something. In accordance with this idea, cake, candy, or small coins are scattered by those who place the charm. The articles thrown away must be placed where wanted, and they must be abandoned without a backward glance.

17 – It is a true charm from the old country, that if you are tired of anyone, you can get rid of that person by taking a bushel of dry peas saying a wish for every one you take out, as from day to day you take out some, and as they go, he will waste and go to his grave.

18 – To cause the death of an enemy, mould a heart of wax and stick pins in it till it breaks. Another charm is to hold the waxen heart before a slow fire. As it melts, the life of the enemy will depart.

19 – To harm an enemy, take salt and pepper and put them into his clothing or his house, and say: “I put this pepper on yon, And this salt thereto. That peace and happiness You may never know.” He will soon be miserable.

20 – A sheaf of corn is sometimes buried with a certain dedication to Satan, in the belief that as the corn rots in the ground, so will the person wither away who is under your curse when you bury the corn.

21 – Another form of malediction is to bury a lighted candle by night in a churchyard, with certain weird ceremonies.

22 – The following recipe for avenging oneself on one’s enemies is given by Kunn, in Westphalia: “When the new moon falls on a Tuesday, go out before daybreak to a stake selected beforehand, turn to the east and say: ‘Stick, I grasp thee in the name of the Trinity!’ Take thy knife and say: ‘Stick, I cut thee in the name of the Trinity, that thou mayest obey me and chastise anyone whose name I mention.’ Then peel the stick in two places to enable thee to carve these words: ‘Abia, obia, sabis,’ lay a smock frock on thy threshold and strike it hard with the stick, at the same time naming the person who is to be beaten. Though he be many miles away, he will suffer as much as if he were on the spot.” All this distinctly depends upon the moon being new on a Tuesday.

23 – To make one die for sleep, dissolve lard and put it in their drink.

24 – You can cast a malefic spell on your enemy by repeating the Lord’s Prayer backwards, all the time wishing some evil upon him.

25 – In Southern Italy, the hearts of onions are scorched over a fire in the name of the victim, to burn up their hearts.

26 – There is a superstition among the natives of Natal, that if the plant called Isanywane is placed on a man’s hearth, it will cause him to become generally disliked.

27 – Pythagoras says: “That if a flame be put into the skull of a murderer, and the name of your enemy written therein, it will strike the person whose name is so written with fear and trembling, and he will speedily seek your forgiveness and become a steadfast friend.”

28 – “If you wish to harm anybody, read the 107th, 108th and 109th Psalm at 8, 11 and 3 o’clock, and you will then have much power over them.” (Elworthy, “The Evil Eye.”)

29 – The Greeks believed that to measure exactly the height and circumference of the body of an enemy, would cause him to languish and fall away, or die very soon.

30 – If a man hates another and will repeat the 109th Psalm every morning and evening for a year, his enemy will be dead; but if he misses a single time, he will die himself.

31 – In Bombay, if one man puts salt into another man’s hand, it makes them sworn enemies for life.

32 – Bury a dead man’s hair under the threshold of an enemy, and he will soon be troubled with ague.

33 – To repeat certain formulas among the Hindus, is supposed to bring injury upon an enemy.

34 – In West Cork, people spit on the ground in front of anyone whom they wish to have bad luck.

35 – Never let your enemy get hold of your picture. If he should keep it turned upside down, or should throw it in the water, you would sicken and die or meet with an accident .

36 – If you shoot the picture of an enemy with a silver bullet, you will cause the death of your enemy.

37 – In Germany, old women cut out a turf a foot long on which an enemy had trod, and hung it up in the chimney, in the belief that the enemy would shrivel up just as the turf did, and in the end die a lingering death.

38 – When a man of one of the Indian tribes cannot get what he wants, or if he thinks he has been unjustly treated, he will cut or wound himself, or perhaps take the life of some member of his family, in order that the blood of the victim may rest upon the head of the oppressor.

39 – If you wish to bring ill luck to a neighbor, take nine pins, nine nails, and nine needles, boil them in a quart of water, put it in a bottle, and hide it under or in their fireplace, and the family will always have sickness. (Negro superstition.)

40 – The negroes “conjure” by obtaining an article belonging to another, boiling it, no matter what it may be, in lye with a rabbit’s foot, and a bunch of hair cut from the left ear of a female opossum. They say terrible headaches and the like can be inflicted in this way.

41 – The American Indians believe that anyone who possesses a lock of their hair or other thing related to their person, will have power over them for evil.

42 – When the bread is taken from the oven, a few red hot coals or cinders are thrown into the oven by the Magyars, in the belief that it is as good as throwing them down one’s enemy’s throat. Thus, if one’s enemy would partake of that bread, he would come to grief.

43 – Throw a pebble upon which your enemy’s name is inscribed, together with a pin, into the well of St. Elian, in Wales, as an offering to the well, and a curse will come upon the one who bears the name, and in all probability he will pine away and die.

44 – To cause an enemy ill luck, make a heap of stones, cursing him as many times as there are stones, and as every Christian must add at least a pebble as he passes by, his woes and his misfortunes will constantly increase. (Greece.)

45 – Not many years ago, there was a system of cursing in common vogue in Fermanagh with tenants who had been given notice to quit. This was: they collected, from all over their farms, stones. These they brought home, and having put a lighted coal in the fireplace, they heaped the stones on it as if they had been sods of turf. They then knelt down on the hearthstone, and prayed that as long as the stones remained unburnt every conceivable curse might light on their landlord, his children, and their children to all generations. To prevent the stones by any possibility being burnt, as soon as they had finished cursing, they took the stones and scattered them far and wide over the whole country. Many of the former families of the county are said now to have disappeared on account of being thus cursed.

46 – The great antiquity of sympathetic magic, by which a person is destroyed if an image of him is made and then ruined again, is shown by the discovery at Thebes of a small clay figure of a man tied to a papyrus scroll, evidently to compass the death of the person described therein. This figure and papyrus are now in the Ashmolean Museum.

47 – A South Sea Islander persisted in saying he was very ill because his enemies, the Happahs, had stolen a lock of his hair and buried it in a leaf of a plantain to kill him. He had offered the Happahs the greater part of his property if they would bring back his hair and the leaf, for otherwise he was sure to die.

48 – It is a widespread belief that one can injure another person by stepping upon his or her shadow. Any injury done to the shadow would have the same effect upon its owner. To cause an enemy’s death, it is merely necessary to take his shadow away from him entirely.

49 – Anciently, a small bunch of feathers placed in a person’s path was -thought, in Jamaica, to give them a curse. Any piece of coffin furniture hung over the door was also capable of cursing the inmates of the house.

50 – Put ashes from yellow stamped paper, together with ashes from the temple, on your enemy, and he will be sure to be very sick soon. (China.)

51 – The head of a dog and the head of a buffalo, stamped on paper, the paper burned and the ashes collected and mixed with sacred ashes, is also used to make an enemy die, if it can be got into the tea he drinks.

52 – Lisiansky, in his “Voyage Round the World,” gives us an account of a religious sect in the Sandwich Islands who arrogate to themselves the power to pray people to death. Whoever incurs their displeasure receives notice that the “homicidelitany” is about to begin. Such are the effects of superstition and imagination that the notice alone is frequently sufficient with these weak people to make them waste away with fear, or else go mad and commit suicide.

53 – The Finnish superstition of producing an absent person in the form of an image in a vessel of water and then shooting it, and thereby wounding or slaying the absent enemy, is believed to be efficacious at a hundred miles distance.

54 – It was at the instigation of Eleanor, Duchess of Gloucester (for which she was imprisoned), that a figure made of wax was used to represent King Henry VI., the intention being for his person to be destroyed as the figure was consumed.

55 – In British Guiana, it is to this day firmly believed by the negroes and others, that injuries inflicted even upon the ordure of persons will be felt by the individual by whom they were left. In Somerset, England, it is also believed that it is very injurious to an infant to burn its excrement. It is thought to produce constipation and colic.

56– In Australia, the sorcerer has different means of attacking an enemy. He can creep near him when he is asleep and bewitch him to death by merely pointing a leg bone of a kangaroo at him; or he can steal away his kidney-fat, where, as the natives believe, a man’s power dwells; or he can call in the aid of a malignant demon to strike the poor wretch with his club behind the neck, or he can get a lock of hair and roast it with fat over the fire until its former owner pines away and dies.

57 – In Calcutta, a servant having quarreled with his master, hung himself in the night in front of the street door, that he might become a devil and haunt the premises. The house was immediately forsaken by its occupants, and, although a large and beautiful edifice, was suffered to go to ruins.

58 – The western tribes of Victoria, Australia, believe that if an enemy can get hold of so much as a bone from the meat one has eaten, that he can bring illness upon you. Should anything belonging to an unfriendly tribe be found, it is given to the chief, who preserves it as a means of injuring the enemy. It is loaned to any one of the tribe who wishes to vent his spite against any of the unfriendly tribe. When used as a charm, it is rubbed over with emu-fat mixed with clay, and tied to the point of a spear. This is stuck upright in the ground before the camp fire. The company sit watching it, but at such a distance that their shadows cannot fall on it. They keep chanting imprecations on the enemy till the spear thrower turns around and falls in his direction. Any of these people believe that by getting a bone or other refuse of an enemy, he has the power of life and death over him, be it man, woman, or child. He can kill his enemy by sticking the bone firmly by the fire. No matter how distant, the person will waste away. This same belief is found among the American Indians.

59 – It is a common belief among the American Indians that certain medicine men possess the power of taking life by shooting needles, straws, spiders’ webs, bullets and other objects, however distant the person may be at whom they are directed. Thus, in “Cloud Shield’s Winter Count for 1824-1825,” CatOwner was killed with a spider-web thrown at him by a Dakota. It reached the heart of the victim from the hand of the man who threw it, and caused him to bleed to death from the nose. (Mallery, “Picture Writing of the American Indians.”)

60 – In the North of Scotland, a peculiar piece of witchcraft is still practiced, where a cowardly, yet deadly, hatred is cherished against a person. A “body of clay,” called in GaeKc “Carp Creaah,” is made as nearly as possible to resemble the one sought to be injured. This is placed, in great secrecy, in the stream of some shadowy burn. The belief is that as the body of clay wastes away from the action of the water, the victim sought to be cursed will as surely waste away to death.

61 – One of the charms formerly most dreaded by the natives of Madagascar, was called berika. It is said to be most deadly in its effects, bringing about the death of the victim by bursting his heart, and causing him to vomit immense quantities of blood. Even the possessor of this charm stood in terror of it, and none but the most reckless of charm-dealers and sorcerers would have anything to do with it. It was popularly supposed to have an inherent liking for blood, and that it would at times demand from its owner to be allowed to go forth to destroy some living tiling; at one time it would demand a bullock, at another a sheep or pig, at another a fowl, and occasionally its ferocity would only be satisfied with a human victim. The owner was obliged to comply with its demands and perform the appropriate incantations so as to set it at liberty to proceed on its fatal errand, lest it should turn on him and strike him dead. In fact, the charm was of so uncertain a temper, so to speak, that its owner was never sure of his own life, as it might at any moment turn upon him and destroy him, out of sheer ferocity.

62– Another powerful charm is called manara-mody. It is supposed to follow the person to be injured, and on his arrival home, to bring upon him a serious illness or cause his immediate death. For instance, a person goes down from the interior to the coast for the purpose of trade. In some business transaction, he unfortunately excites the anger of a man with whom he is dealing, and who determines to seek revenge. For this purpose, he buys from a charm-dealer the charm called manara-mody. The trader, having finished his business on the coast, starts homeward, all unconscious that his enemy has sent the fatal charm after him to dog his steps through forest and swamp, over hill and valley. At length he reaches his home, thankful to be once more with his family. But alas! the rejoicing is soon turned to mourning, for the remorseless charm does its work, and smites the victim with sore disease, or slays him outright at once.

Being A Witch

We should educate people that ‘Witch’ is not evil but ancient and positive. The first time I called myself a ‘Witch’ was the most magical moment of my life.
