You've Been Cursed?

As I am a working Witch and people know where I am - they have to as we are a Mail Order company - we regularly get letters asking for help with various magical problems, and one which crops up regularly is:

I've been cursed!

Invariably also we are told that the curse has been in place for a number of years, and often that the person has tried all sorts and not got rid of it.

First thing: If the curse has been in place for several years and you are still suffering from it, it is a rubbish curse. Any decent curse would kill the sufferer within weeks or months.
And secondly: if you have been suffering from it for years then it is going to take time to get rid of it.

The trouble is that whether or not you have been cursed, once you believe that you have been, it is your own belief that keeps the curse grumbling along, in a way you are the one feeding the curse, and your belief makes the curse grow. So you are using your own psychic powers and powers of self-suggestion, and the better you are at it, the better your curse will work. In a way you ought to be proud of the strength of your own psychic powers, but isn't it about time you started using those powers to improve your life not grind it down?

There are three very easy steps to removing a curse, but they require that you follow the steps to the letter, with no excuses about why you can't do it. If you find excuses to avoid following these steps then you are going to keep the curse no matter what else is suggested to you:
Step 1: If you believe that the curse has been placed by a certain person then you must cut all contact with that person. If you can't do that, every time you have contact you will renew the curse, rather like re-infecting yourself with an illness.
Step 2: Each morning take a bath into which you have put a handful of sea salt - if you can consecrate the salt so much the better, but even if you can't the salt bath will work. Sit in your bath and drench yourself with the water and as you do so tell yourself that you are washing away all contact with the person who cursed you, and you are washing away the curse.
Step 3: Each night when you go to bed imagine yourself sleeping within a bubble of blue energy. Just imagine yourself laying within a blue bubble. This protective blue bubble will cut all contacts with any energies which might be trying to get at you while you sleep. So you will sleep better and diminish the curse while you sleep.

Keep those three steps up for a month and you will see a marked improvement in your situation.
Keep them up for three months and the curse will be gone.

Any time you feel unsure, frightened or worried about the curse, imagine yourself within the bubble of protective blue energy.

That is all there is to it.
So good luck if you are suffering with this problem, and give these three steps a go.

They Are Watching You!

The Post Office, that is.

Yesterday our son rang to tell us that he had been identified as a possible international terrorist, as he had been found to have sent a suspect package through the post.

Hecky thump! What had he sent?

He had attempted to send his two teenage cousins gift boxed sets of toiletries. Lynx to be precise.

The items the GPO were particularly concerned about was the deoderant. No doubt they were to create such an atmosphere of delicious sexiness that the post office workers would be put off their stride and lulled into a state of somnulent heaven!

Pressurised containers, he was solemnly informed. It was prohibited to send pressurised containers through the mail. However in this case they had decided to repackage the items and send them on.

As a mail order company we have to be aware of  the 'dangerous goods' which we are not allowed to send through the post - and you can get a leaflet from the post office to help you out with this.

We think it is possible that the deoderant trauma was caused because Mike's cousins live on the Isle of Lewis - which appears to be classed as 'international' by the GPO - and you can't send pressurised containers including deoderant anywhere through the post if they are going 'international'. Deoderant is ok in the UK as long as the bottles are no more than 500ml and no more than 2 per pack.

Some of these prohibited items are common sense, you can't send ammunition, explosives, guns, clinical and medical waste and controlled drugs and narcotics.
But some things are a little more open to question, for example 'Human and animal remains (including ashes)' Are sausages classed as 'animal remains', or smoked fish? Hang on, those come under the 'perishables' section and are ok as long as they are marked 'perishable'. But what about hair or fur? However you can send live creatures, insects, invertebrates, bees and spiders as long as they are packaged correctly. So you can send as many ants and tarantulas as your heart desires - and you can send these International too!

Batteries are a bit of a minefield, if you get my meaning. Most batteries that go in toys and domestic items are ok - but not car batteries, or 'Batteries that are classified as dangerous goods', there you go then.

You can send nail varnish in the UK, but not hair dye, and no more than 150ml bottles of perfume. Oh and beware of the strength of any magnets.

So there you have it, you can send a Black Widow spider to the one you love, but not a lovely big bottle of perfume.

Twelfth Night Spell

Here is a spell to achieve your desires in the coming year. It is in two parts, the first part you should do tonight, the second part tomorrow morning:

Choose an item to represent what you are seeking: a coin or bank note for money, your CV for a job, a picture of a house for a new home, or a heart shaped object for a new love.
You will also need two candles, two ivy leaves and some red thread or wool.

Light one of the candles, then take the ivy leaves and put them at either side of your wish object, to make a sort of sandwich or parcel if the item is small enough. Then wrap red thread or wool around the bundle and tie a good knot.

Put the bundle near the candle and say:
King of Misrule make my year
Give me the wish, that I wish here
Now say out loud what you are hoping for three times.

Leave the candle to burn down, with the bundle near it.

Tomorrow morning light the second candle and take up the bundle. Cut the threads holding the bundle and hold all the objects in your strongest hand as you say:
I hold this gift, it comes to me
Lord of Misrule, my thanks to thee.

Put the items near the candle and again let the candle burn down. Put all the spell ingredients in a pouch and keep them safely somewhere appropriate.

Happy New Year

I hope you have had a lovely Winter celebration. As is our custom, we celebrated every celebration we came across with great enthusiasm and gusto.
We are already getting the first Newletter and flyer of the New Year ready and are waiting for new stock to arrive - we have some new books, tarot cards, candle holders and new incense stick fragrances. One of the things I can't wait to see 'in the flesh' is a special gold coloured Money Cat with a waving paw, which also has a clock at its side. I think I may find it difficult to resist putting one of those away for myself !

I have also been having fun with the new photocopies and laminator and have started on a a new range of our special saints and angels cards. These will have a full colour picture on one side and a prayer or invocation on the other.

This is just the start though as I have ideas for all sorts of other products.

Oh and just to make sure I am well in advance for next Yule, I have started work on a Folk Witchery book of the Winter Solstice
