Examining the power of magickal curses which can create changes in the environment and how such dangerous power affects the people casting and receiving them.
Curses are extraordinarily powerful forces which when once projected at a person or even object, become an amazing destroying force that can permanently injure or kill. In various magickal traditions, the curse is fashioned through specific rituals and then projected out into the ether against its intended target. The art of placing and removing curses has been in existence as far back as recorded history. In ancient Greece and Rome , the curses were inscribed on clay tablets as well as often times being accompanied by crude effigies or models depicting the intended target. Usually the summoning of a specific demon or deity is used, requesting that this spiritual entity be the force which puts the curse in motion. The talismans or scrolls are then buried in a cemetery or some other place underneath earth that is owned or closely associated with the intended victim.
Almost all religions make mention of both blessings and curses as actual realities. In Hinduism, the Fakir has the ability to effect ritual curses. In Islam, it can be the mullahs. In Judaism, the rabbi or even lay person has that power. Both the Tanakh and Talmud have specific references to the placing of curses and their intended effect, but it clearly states that if the curse is leveled at someone who doesn’t deserve it, the results will backfire. Western Christian tradition also recognizes that the power of curses are real, as the Bible both Old and New Testaments, contain many instances of both blessings and curses being leveled at both individuals, nations, animals, even fig trees. The New Testament mentions Jesus cursing a perfectly healthy fig tree. The next day it withered.
The Generational Curse
There are many types of curses, including the short-term curse and the long-term curse. The long-term curse is known as a generational curse which extends throughout the bloodline of an individual person or group. This kind of generational curse has been known to bring about inexplicable misfortune in the descendents of the person the original curse was placed upon. The Bible speaks of such a generational curse which extends down to the seventh son, or generation. It is believed by most occult researchers that these types of generational curses are known to bring about otherwise inexplicable failures both personal and financial in the descendents of the originally cursed victim. This kind of generational or bloodline curse can and often does involve certain descendants becoming demonically possessed or oppressed. Only through intercessory prayer, or through a reversal of the original curse through specific magical ritual, can such original curses be revoked or rescinded.
