Cursing is the act of sending out ill will and negative kna at a construct or entity and hopes to harm or create misfortune. Curses act as a attack that allows practitioners to force their will and power upon another. There are many reasons one would want to throw a curse, from revenge to teaching people life lessons, but it depends on the practitioner’s ethical judgment to decide what circumstances a curse would be necessary. All these different practitioners who practice cursing have their ideas, morals, and ethics, and if you believe that you would like to incorporate this into your practice, you will have your own. By understanding these practices, you can learn how to do them, but you can also learn how to prevent them and break them. You will understand the processes it takes for them to be carried out, and you will achieve an overall higher understanding of what people would perceive as a more negative form of magick. So let’s understand the fundamentals of cursing and how you would go about it if you ever decided you were going to cast one.
Before choosing to curse something, you must have some form of target to lay that curse upon. The target can be anyone, anything, or any place. It is usually not good to curse other practitioners because they may reverse the curse back to you and may spiritually attack you, leading to a form of magickal warfare, which can end badly for everyone involved. It is also good to understand why you are targeting that target in the first place. This will allow you to be more connected to your intention and to make sure that it is even worth going through with the curse in the first place. Once you have your target and understand why you have chosen that target, you can move on to the next step.
Once you have someone to curse, it’s time to set your intention for what you want the curse to do. This can be anything you can imagine that you would like to manifest onto the target. You could use this curse to manifest bad luck, paranoia, depression, laziness, sickness, nightmares, pain, and many other manifestations. You can also place how long you would like this curse to manifest in this intention. This time frame will program the kna to spread out and affect them over a continuous time frame. You will also be able to set up triggers into the intention so that the curse will activate when a certain parameter or parameters are met. This would be useful if you wanted it to activate on specific people who performed a specific action. An example of this would be cursing a book so that anyone who opened it would receive the curse. Both of these will allow more control over the curse and allow you to personalize it for different situations. Now that you have what you want the curse to do and who you want to do it to, you can start the next process of gathering up items.
You will need to get some taglock of this construct or entity you are trying to curse. This will act as a magical link between your magickal working and the target. Taglocks will be connected to the construct or entity through name, association, similarity, or contagion. Name taglocks are one of the simplest forms and are connected to the name of what you are targeting. It can be any name used to represent that construct or entity, such as magickal name, birth name, spirit name, the true name, or any other name. You can even go through the process of giving what you are trying to curse a name so that you could use it as a taglock. Taglocks that are connected through association with the target will be able to be used, whether they are associated in contrast, contiguity, or by any other imposed or imaginary conditions. Taglocks that would work for this would be a person’s favorite color, animal, or aspect that you associate with them. Taglocks that are connected through similarity are taglocks that reflect the being of the individual construct. Taglocks that would work like this would be a picture, a doll, or an artist’s representation of the person or place. A contagion taglock has come in contact with what you are trying to curse and has some of its kna on it. This can truly be anything that is come in contact with the target, from something they have touched once to their hair or fingernails. There are a plethora of different things you can probably find to use through this taglock type. Once you have collected one, or multiple of these taglocks, you’ll be able to use them in your work and move on to the next step.
Raising negative kna:
During the curse, you will need to raise a lot of negative kna to go through programming it and releasing it. This kna will be personal kna fueled by your anger, disgust, and hate for the target. You may also want to bring in other items that may allow you to raise kna, such as crystals, herbs, or candles. Good candles for this would be black or red candles. The crystals you would want to bring in would be things like obsidian, onyx, and flint, among other things, or any other black stones and/or have aggressive kna. The herbs you would want to bring in would be chili powder, pepper, onion, rose thorns, or plants that have more of a spiciness to them or are poisonous (be careful with poison, not recommended). Through visualization, you will be able to draw the kna from these objects and gather it together so that you can send it out with your intention, to manifest your curse upon your target.
During this entire process, you must also remember to protect yourself from the negative kna that you will be raising. You can do this by setting up shields to protect yourself from negative kna and cleanse before and after the ritual. This will make sure there are no kna beforehand that interact with and disrupt the curse you are trying to send out, and the afterward cleansing will make sure there is no residual negative kna to cause harm to you. It is important to keep yourself safe by sending out curses, so you do not accidentally curse yourself or interact with the negative kna in a disharmonic way.
Simple cursing format:
1) Cleanse the area through any cleansing method, bring your tools, taglock into the area, and set up a shield around yourself.
2) Begin to raise kna by focusing on your anger, disgust, and hate for your target while also chanting or stating your intention.
3) Focus this intention on the person through the taglock, visualize the target in your mind’s eye receiving orders coming to them.
4) Release your negative kna and intentions towards the target by visualizing them shooting out into the universe to manifest.
5) Once that is done, you can undo your shield and cleanse the area again of leftover negative kna.
