Why Curses and Spells Aren’t Real

One of the most common psychic scams in both live and online realms is curses. There are psychics who conduct readings and reveal that you are cursed by some person who has ill feelings against you, and that they have the power to bend that curse-for a certain fee of course.

Since curses tickle not only the client’s interest but as well as his or her feelings of safety and security, psychics now find the opportunity to extort money from them even if their claims have no actual basis. And unfortunately, this scam has been effective for over centuries.

But the truth of the matter is, curses are not real.

How come they became so popular and even feared of? Here’s the story: Indeed in your lifetime you have encountered a person who became your mortal enemy, and maybe during an encounter that other person may have cursed you, or wished that you suffer from great misfortune. But these curses don’t necessarily have to come to life, unless you actually choose to believe in them.

This is where bad psychics come in…Curses

In one way or another, they find people who are either vulnerable or asking very personal questions related to a series of unfortunate events that took place in their lives recently. Given that these clients are scared, confused and gullible (as they are willing to do anything to keep themselves safe an unharmed), these psychics would ask more probing questions about the persons who they regard as enemies or such, and in turn interconnect them with the problems their clients have been going through, even if they have no relation whatsoever. These unethical psychics would then come up with readings saying that their clients have been cursed, and that the curse will continue to haunt them unless they do something with a help of a higher force.

At the same time, these psychics would offer their services in battling the dark forces. These “services” are of course, totally expensive but also include recurring fees to continue to fight off the curse. There are always advance payments, ongoing payments, and other fees even after the supposed job has already been done.

Some psychics meanwhile ask for offerings such as food, eggs, and other items as they claim that this would lure the deities and other forces to their favor, but the truth is that they’re just going to use these items for their own personal satisfaction and give you nothing in return.

If you happen to be given a reading saying that you are cursed-at the same time the psychic offers special services in order to break that curse, don’t fall for it! Real psychics would rather help you through the problems in your life, or simply tell you the truth … that these misfortunes you’ve been going through are just trials and have nothing to do with your enemies or curses. They will just encourage you to think with a clear mind, hold on to your faith, and as well not lose hope as you make your decisions in life.

      Hi Lakevia, tell her that if she doesn’t stop calling you, you will call the Police. If she persists then call the Police and report her for harassment. They take cases like this very seriously.

      Thats a common parlor trick Tip. Most phones nowadays let you block numbers. Cut off all contact and block her phone number. Best wishes my friend.

    I’m so glad I read this! I read this article a few days ago and yesterday I decided to go see a psychic that has been advertising in my town. She immediately tried to tell me I was cursed because my grandpa did something terrible years ago and she could remove the curse for $500. Thanks to you I laughed and ran out of there as fast as a could. Keep up the good work angela!

    Hi Angela just stumbled upon this site, I am in south Africa. I have so much misfortune that I discovered not 1 but psychics online, and each time I did everything was asked of me, the first two I could tell that they just stole my money and Neva contacted them again, the 3rd I did everything asked of me and with all of this I lost in total R25000(south african rands), and during this time I got myself into a financial rut, lost my mum and ended up in hospital so I totally felt I’ve been cursed. But how and why because I don’t have any enemies. Anyway I finally realized that all 3 just stole my !money and now I’m trying to get myself up. Thank you I needed this I won’t b fooled again . love xoxoxo

      Hi Soomaya,

      I’m really sorry for your loss. I’m so happy I could help you realize you aren’t cursed. Sometimes life has a way of hitting you with bad things all at once. You just have to pick yourself up and dust yourself off and learn from your mistakes. A lot of times we try and look for reasons for our misfortunes and most of the time there is no reason, that’s just life. I know its not much but I will pray for you Soomaya, I genuinely hope things get better for you. Stay positive my friend!

    Angela, I completely disagree with this. I’ve been dealing with things unfolding in my life for decades that are virtually impossible. I was (for a long time) very optimistic and believed life is what you make of it. Well after decades of torment in every area of my life, things that are basically impossible keep happening over and over and over. I believe it must be some kind of a curse. I’d like to hear if you have an alternative explanation for something I’ve been dealing with first hand for decades?

    I’ve appreciated this website overall, as I had an intuition that Celeste the angelic medium was totally off, and a friend shared with me Elissa, who seemed to conveniently have the same popping image that turned out to be photostock. I would advise against the article written here – it’s not worded properly. You’re pointing out an important truth of how scam artists con clients. But with the way this is worded, you might as well also include a line about how Wicca, Vodun and Santeria are not real religions, which is of course, offensive. Do you want to alienate that many people? The truth is the magical community is closely knit with the psychic community, and so for the psychic community to insist, in effect, magic is not real is a bit absurd. Magic is the flow of psychism charged with intention. And unfortunately, curses are real, but most are much easier to crack than scam artists would set out. If someone is charging you to break a curse they’ve conveniently just located, that is not a good solution, and there is a whole business built around fabricating imaginary curses and scapegoats to hunt down for money. As someone who’s studied witchcraft for 20 years and who actively experiments with magic and energetic-meditations, I’ve found there are very basic things one can do to bump oneself out of a trend of negative energy and circumvent “curses.” I would kindly request that you think about making a revised version of this article, thank you.

    I think that I have been scammed by Padre the Angelic Guide who appears to be a handsome, bearded older man. I think that when these “guides” tell you that they are concerned for you because someone has cast a spell or curse on them, is extremely cruel. I already purchased a “free gift” and the service from Padre, within the past few weeks. Do you think I should try to get my money back?

    Hi Angela,

    I have been scammed by Magellan the spiritual medium. When I stumble upon your article regarding this so called medium, I almost had a heart attack. I copied and pasted your article and sent it out to him by email today. Plus, I asked for a full reimbursement. Funny thing, magellan, did mention if I am not satisfied, he will fully reimburse me… I am hoping he will… Thank you Angela, for opening up my eyes. I did sense something was off with him…. He gave me his vibratory dates and numbers to play the lottery as well as an additional personal lucky numbers to play, he said it was sent to him from my Spiritual Guide.. I asked several time to reveal this spiritual guide, all he said was HE. Angela, I am seeking for a real medium for a reading about my personal life, work and financial stability….
