Believing in curses and spells dates back to the beginning of time. History is full of famous curses, like King Tut’s Curse, The Kennedy Curse, and The Curse Of The Hope Diamond. However, these aren’t curses; they’re just a series of coincidences. We’ve been lied to as far back as we can remember.
One of the oldest examples of curses and spells is a 2,000-year-old set of mysterious scrolls unearthed in Serbia. The ancient scrolls had curses written all over them. It’s understandable why people in ancient times blamed curses and spells for their bad luck. Life was more complicated back then, so they looked to divine beings to explain things that happened to them.
They firmly believed that Gods and supernatural powers were responsible for their lives, not themselves. They felt that if they lived their life in a way that pleased the Gods, they would be fine. If they did something to upset them, the Gods would punish them.
Curses And Revenge Go Hand In Hand
As time went on, they started believing that they had the power to curse others too. They created spell formulas and named individuals who they believe wronged them. If someone belittled or degraded them, they would make small statues that looked like them. Voodoo dolls are another version of this.
They would use curses as a way of getting revenge on someone. It was the equivalent of going on social media to blast your enemy. Similar to taking someone who angered you down with the meanest words you can think of. Since social media didn’t exist at the time, they would go to their local magician and pay them to “curse” their enemy instead
Our words truly do hold a lot of power. People took this concept and ran with it, crediting the things we say for the things that happened. Words are potent seeds of creation, but the power of belief is just as mighty. Our words hold power because it’s energy that we’re directing at someone.
However, this energy can only affect someone if they welcome it in and hold it as truth. Curses and spells only work if the curser and the “cursed” believe in it, not the other way around.
The Curse of King Tut
The King Tut curse is a perfect example of the power of belief. “Death comes on wings to he who enters the tomb of the Pharoah” is said to be inscribed over the entrance of King Tut’s tomb. In 1922, two men named Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon found the tomb and entered it anyway. Not long after, a mosquito bit one of the men, Lord Carnarvon, on the cheek.
He opened the cut while shaving and died of blood poisoning. By 1929, seven years later, eleven others connected to the expedition died in “mysterious” ways. That was enough proof for people to grab onto the and believe in the power of the curse.
When you stop and think about it though, aren’t a lot of deaths mysterious? Death rarely ever makes sense. People die every day in ways that we can’t comprehend. There are many unexpected and senseless ways people pass.
The moral of the story is what happened to the other man, Howard Carter. He’s the one who led the expedition and was the first man to enter the supposedly cursed tomb. Guess what happened to him? Nothing- that’s what. Absolutely nothing. He went on to live a long and healthy life.
He went on to live a long and healthy life. The only difference between him and the others? He didn’t believe in curses. He openly expressed his disbelief multiple times.
The story of Harold Bennett is another classic example of how our thoughts and beliefs affect our lives. Dr. Larry Dossey was a new doctor interning at a Texas hospital. There he met a patient named Harold Bennett whose body was giving out and who appeared to be dying. None of the doctors had been able to figure out what was wrong with him.
They ran countless tests, scans, and labs with nothing physical showing up. Dr. Dossey had a candid discussion with Mr. Bennett hoping to get more information. That’s when the patient told him that a fortune teller had cursed him because he had refused to pay her a large sum of money.
Dr. Dossey worried that traditional medicine wouldn’t work on the patient because he had already convinced himself he was dying from a curse. That’s when he and a colleague decided to try something different. They designed and carried out a voodoo ceremony to undo the curse. They sat Mr. Bennett in front of them while they lit a small fire, took a lock of his hair, and began an incantation.
When they finished the performance, they told him they had removed his curse and that it could no longer affect him. The following day, Dr. Dossey checked on him and found him sitting up in bed, eating breakfast. He seemed to have recovered entirely. His recovery continued throughout the following days. He was sent home within the week and continued to live a normal life.
You really have to ask yourself- did the doctors figure out the formula for the ceremony and perform it correctly somehow? Or did the power of belief both hurt AND heal Harold Bennett??
You Are Not Cursed
It’s natural to believe in curses when your life isn’t going as planned. A reader of my blog, I’ll call her Sue for privacy, wrote to me saying that she believes she had a curse on her. Everything was going wrong for her. Her parents had been killed in a tragic car accident when she was a teenager. She married young to a man who became abusive towards her. She attempted to start a business that failed not long after it began.
I didn’t know her very well, but I knew curses and spells weren’t real. The only advice I could give her was to speak to a gifted psychic for advice. I referred her to my online psychic reviews page for help finding the best one for her. She wrote me back later saying that a psychic from Psychic Source helped her change her life completely.
The psychic explained to Sue that she wasn’t cursed; she was simply living with a victim mentality. She taught her how to train her mind to believe that she was a magnet for happiness and success, not a victim of bad luck. She guided her out of the dark tunnel towards the light that awaited her at the end.
With the help of the psychic, Sue discovered what kind of work would give her the most purpose in life. She went back to school and became a physical therapist because she wanted to help others feel good again. She stopped wasting her time with men who didn’t deserve her and ended up marrying a man who treats her like a queen. Sue told me that she never imagined she could be this happy.
Fake Psychics Love Using The Curse Scam
Psychic scammers are very good at getting people to believe their lies. It’s easy when their victim is already in a vulnerable or desperate state. They are easy targets for them because they’re already scared, confused, and gullible. They’re willing to do anything to keep themselves safe and healthy.
Fake psychics have several ways to convince their victims they’re cursed. One of these ways is to ask the client to tell them about the people they don’t get along with. They get a feel for who they feel has wronged them before or who they consider an enemy. They then connect the problems they’re having with these people.
They’ll tell the client that this person was jealous, mad, resentful, etc. of them and cursed them. They convince them that the curse will continue to haunt them until they recruit the help of a higher force. The scammers then offer their services in calling upon a higher power to battle the dark forces and remove the curse.
Of course, these services always come with a hefty price tag. They aren’t usually a one-time fee either. They typically include recurring fees to continue to fight off the curse. There are usually advance payments, ongoing payments, and other costs involved, even after completing the job.
Psychics use sleight of hand and props to convince the client they’re cursed. One of the most popular among these fake psychics is the “cursed egg” trick. Read about it here, along with the other common psychic scams.
Fake psychics also lie to people about their personal belongings being cursed. They convince unsuspecting victims to hand over their valuable possessions to get destroyed. The psychic then switches their items with a bag full of newspapers, burns the trash, and keeps the belongings for themselves.
What To Do If You Still Think You’re Cursed
If you’re like my reader and think you’re cursed, I suggest you speak to a psychic about it. However, you must run far away from a psychic who agrees (or even suggests) that you’re cursed and that they can fix it for a hefty price. Genuine psychics know you’re not cursed and don’t prey on your fears. Paying a fortune for the supposed removal of a curse is a common psychic scam.
We all go through hard times and bad luck, but we also experience times of good luck. That’s just life. You have to hold yourself accountable for what’s going on in your life and make a plan to fix it. Even if something isn’t your fault, it’s still up to nobody but yourself to make it better.
The point is, if you believe you’re a victim, the Universe is going to treat you like one. Curses are only real if you believe in them, not if you choose to believe in yourself and your own power. Start believing good things are coming your way and the Universe will reward you.
If you’re having love, family, self-esteem, or job issues, remember that you have choices. You aren’t doomed to live a life you don’t like forever. You have one life to live and deserve to be happy. Speak with a psychic below to develop a personalized game plan that will turn your situation around for the better.
