If you think that someone has, or might, cursed or put an evil spell on you, you need to know how to protect yourself from that harmful energy.
Some people (who don't know how dumb an idea it is) do cast evil spells on people. By definition, these people are not Wiccans, since Wiccans "harm none" and know that they hurt themselves more than they hurt anyone else.
You don't need to be Wiccan to protect yourself, either.
Here's what you need to know....
What You Need to Know about Curses
First, let me reassure you that, even if someone is wishing you ill or sending you harmful magics or a curse, it can't harm you if you protect yourself.
Remember this critical thing about being "hexed"... It can only work if you let it in.
Curses do have energy. I'm not going to tell you they're harmless, because they're not. You don't need to be victimized by them, but you do need to understand that something must be done about them.
The best protection against evil is to align yourself with higher vibrations, ie, the Divine.
How? By accepting the protection of the most powerful ally anyone can have: the Divine.
You can break any curse this way.
After all, how could any human harm you, when the Divine wishes to keep you well?
I would recommend that you do the Divine Light Invocationat least 5 times a day, plus every time you think about the "curse" or worry that it might be affecting you.
The Divine Light Invocation will dilute the power of the spell, every time you perform it. Invoking the Divine to protect you and anyone else you put in the light (like your family) from harm.
At some point, the spell will dissipate entirely, because nothing manmade can stand up to the full-on infinite power of the Divine.
The first thing to do, therefore, is to turn away from all your thoughts of the curse, or having bad luck. Turn away as well from your thoughts of things that have gone wrong, because no matter how sad and painful that loss was, it is over, and dwelling on it now only makes you vulnerable to ill-luck and unhappiness.
Singing Mantras is a perfect way to keep your focus on the Divine, and invoke the protection of the Divine at the same time.
It's important to keep your focus on what you can do to invoke good things into your life, rather than thinking about any evil magick spell.
Turning on the Light automatically dispels any shadows.
But dwelling on the shadows only deepens them.
You must absolutely turn away from any thoughts of revenge... for these put you outside the realm of the Divine, and make you susceptible to harm.
Turn your thoughts again and again to the Divine.
Offer all your pain to God. Everything you offer, is a gift to the Most High.
Hand over to the Divine all of your suffering, your grief, your fears, all the years you feel you have lost, your despair… everything! God will take it from you, and turn it into blessings.
Offer as well your hope for a better future, and your trust in the Divine, and your gratitude for all the blessings you still receive. These are the sweetest gifts for the Divine to receive, and you will be blessed for them.
You may also find other spiritual practices helpful, especially prayer and meditation.
I also suggest smudging yourself, praying for peace and compassion for yourself and the other person. (This may seem wrong, but few things can undo a negative energy coming toward you like sincerely praying for the person who considers themself your enemy.)
If you are Wiccan, you can do a ritual and create an amulet for your protection, as well. Pentacles are standard protection charms. See the Related Articles below for information on other things you can use in protection spells.
Getting Back At the Hexer
You may think that you can rebound the curse on the person who sent it, without incurring any harm for yourself, because of the 3-Fold Law.
I would NOT suggest trying to send the spell back to them.
The Three-Fold- Law is already in motion -- it's a universal constant, like gravity, and you don't need to do anything to make it happen.
Anything you do toward that goal would essentially be casting an evil spell . . . and setting yourself up for the 3-fold backlash!
