15 Signs of a Curse: Are You Really Cursed? + How to BREAK A Curse!
Let’s face it. Bad things happen to good people sometimes for no logical reason. Sometimes we don’t understand why illness or misfortune befalls us, and we want to know the signs of a curse. In this article, we teach you how to tell if you’re truly cursed plus teach you how to BREAK curses and reclaim your life.
First, Curses are HIGHLY Unlikely
Before we even get into the symptoms and signs of a curse, we have to tell you this – the idea that a curse was truly put on you or your family is HIGHLY unlikely! It’s not impossible, but it is incredibly rare. Most of the people who believe they are cursed simply don’t want to face reality that bad things happen sometimes for no known reason. That IS life. It sucks to admit it and face the truth, but we’re not all cursed when illness and bad luck befall us. So rest easy. 99 times out of a hundred, a curse has not been put on you!
Ask Yourself This…
What did I do to deserve someone’s hatred and rage to the point they would exert such effort and time cursing me? The truth of the matter is for a curse to really take hold, it takes quite a lot of energy and magical ability. So, either the person who’s cursing you is a skilled conjurer or witch, OR they are paying a conjurer/witch GOOD money to curse you for them. Curses DON’T come cheap! Also ask yourself this, does this person have magical abilities to do it themselves? Do they have the cash-flow to pay someone to curse you? If the answer is you’re unsure, then stop being paranoid!
STOP! READ THIS FIRST: YOU’RE PROBABLY NOT CURSED UNLESS…
You are a politician, very wealthy individual, have a long-standing feud with an enemy, have a familial feud (meaning your family has been fighting with another family for decades or centuries), OR are a witch or magical practitioner who knows other witches and magical practitioners. If you’re NOT one of the above, then stop thinking you’re cursed. At this point, if you’re the normal layperson with little money, no family feuds, no real enemies, no fame or fortune, you are NOT CURSED. You most likely have made bad decisions and have caused misfortune on yourself.
If you said YES to one of the above in the previous section, then continue reading the signs of a curse. PLEASE NOTE: It takes more than ONE of these signs of a curse to actually consider yourself or family cursed.
1. Sign of a Curse: Inexplicable Illness and/or Injury
If you are a healthy person overall and start coming down with inexplicable illness or random injuries, this may be a sign of a curse. Keep in mind, illness is typically in reaction to some other issue going on in your body, mind or spirit. So first examine yourself as a whole BEFORE jumping to the curse notion. That being said, curses and hexes can be put on people to make them ill and “waste away”, etc. And if this is an illness that the doctors can’t even figure out – this may be a curse/hex working against you.
2. String of Bad Luck
Typically you are a person of good fortune. Things tend to go your way, within reason. Now, within the past few weeks/months, you seem to be dealing with an unshakable string of bad luck. Again, before jumping to the curse conclusion, examine your decisions in life. Is this “bad luck” reactionary to your poor actions in life? If the answer is no, you may have someone trying to curse/hex you. Bad luck includes: financial problems, health issues (see the first sign), transportation/vehicle problems, technology sna-fus, etc.
3. You’re Involved in a Witch War
While most of us in the witch community want to believe every other witch and magical individual is loving and kind, particularly to our OWN kind, the truth is that not everyone is about the love and light. If you are a witch or pagan and have been a part of a pagan/witchy community, the chances of you being cursed/hexed by another witch increase ten-fold from the layperson. The truth is – when jealousy or drama comes into play, a witch might be more prone to curse another witch than a non-witch. So if you have a witch throwing shade at you, he/she might also be trying to curse you.
4. Strange Animal Occurrences
A common sign of a curse includes strange animal appearances, disappearances and illnesses. The individual doing the cursing could potentially send an animal familiar to “spy” on you, bring bad juju to your doorstep, and more. Is there an animal that seems to be sticking around, checking you out more than usual? Have you found a dead or dying animal (or more) at your doorstep, recently? Or have your pets come down with illness or death? Unfortunately animals are subject to curses, too.
5. Broken Glass
Are you finding broken glass on your doorsteps or in your front yard seemingly out of nowhere? This is one of those common signs of a curse or hex that dates back centuries. In conjure and hoodoo traditions, bottles filled with cursing ingredients are thrown at an enemy’s doorstep or front door and when broken release the hex. Plus it freaking hurts to step on broken glass with bare feet, doesn’t it?
6. Your Guides Are Warning You Of a Curse
This is a BIG one and one that you can always trust. Your guides will WARN you if you are under a spiritual attack of some kind. This is a sign of a curse that you can trust. Signs will come in different forms – including random conversations, symbols in nature, on TV, etc. Ask them to confirm their warnings, if you’re unsure.
7. Random Negative Thoughts
You’re typically a positive, optimistic person, but suddenly you’re having depressing, maybe even suicidal thoughts. You’ve noticed these thoughts don’t seem to be coming from inside but they seem like they’re an outside source. Make note that these thoughts are NOT your own. This could be a sign of a curse and that you’re under spiritual attack.
8. Broken Relationships
In addition to one or more of the above signs of a curse, sudden broken relationships could indicate spiritual attack. This could be any type of relationship: familial, romantic, platonic, etc. Curses seek to destroy lives and what better way to tear someone apart than to split them from their loved ones?
9. Strange Objects On Your Property
Curses can truly only take root when the person being cursed fuels it with their own fear and negativity. Keep this in mind. So if you find strange objects, symbols, or things on your property that don’t belong to you and seem to smell like evil magic, this could be a sign someone is trying to curse you. Someone once showed me a photograph of a pot of fecal matter – this is an obvious sign someone is throwing bad juju your way!
10. Missing Personal Items
It’s easiest for someone to curse or hex you if they have a piece of your personal property. Are you missing anything personal such as underwear, a hairbrush, jewelry, keys, etc.? These items carry your DNA and are often used by witches to curse individuals. If someone’s been in your home recently and something personal has gone missing, this could be a sign of a curse.
11. Bad Omens
When some people see an owl or a blackbird, immediately they think it’s a bad omen. This isn’t always the case. But seeing an omen in conjunction with other signs of a curse could confirm your suspicions. Some bad omens include: a bird flying into a closed window and dying, a woodpecker knocking on your door/house, six crows on the eave, an unexplained high-pitched wailing outside, and the chirp of a deathwatch beetle.
12. Bad Weather Over Your House
Depending upon the severity and power of the person cursing you, the weather over your house or property will be worse than elsewhere in town. Similar to how Eeyore always had a cloud over his head, except this will be over your home. Dark clouds, rain, fog, etc.
13. Feelings of Being Watched Is a Sign of a Curse
If someone is spying on you, they could be sending spirits and animals to watch you. If you get the feeling you are being watched, even when you’re home alone, this could be a sign of a curse. Don’t let this scare you! Read on to learn how to break a curse or hex.
14. Nightmares and Recurring Dreams
Our guides and our higher selves often warn us through our dreams. If you have a recurring dream in which someone is breaking into your house, stealing from you, or invading your space, this is a sign you are under psychic attack. Nightmares are a side effect of curses and hexes. The individual cursing you is using this to instill fear in your mind and soul. Don’t let them!
15. Threatening Letters or Emails
No surprise here – if you’re receiving strange and/or threatening letters in the mail or in your email inbox, this could indicate someone (possibly that very person) is cursing you. The letter or email itself could be magically charged with negativity, so keep a look out.
How to Break A Curse
If you said yes to more than one signs of curses listed here, you may be under spiritual attack. That being said, I’ll say it again, you are most likely NOT being cursed or hexed. First, ask your ancestors or guides to confirm what is really happening through some means of divination. I will take out my oracle cards and ask for my ancestors to speak to me. You can do the same. Whether you are or aren’t being cursed, realize this – YOUR FEAR FEEDS NEGATIVITY. A curse is fed by negativity, including the victim’s fears and negative emotions. Here’s how to break the curse and the negative cycle:
- Don’t feed the fear. YOU are powerful enough to break this cycle. Know this. Believe it.
- Cleanse your space and yourself THOROUGHLY. Smudging is the best means of exorcising negative entities and energies from your property and aura. Learn how to smudge here. Floor washes and sweeps and asperging with holy water are also powerful ways to cleanse.
- Following a cleansing of your space and yourself with smoke, perform a spiritual cleansing or uncrossing bath.
- Next, you’ll need to lay down a magical protective ward around your home and property. Learn how to lay a protective ward here.
- After your protective ward, make a witch’s bottle, seal it and bury it on your property. This traps any oncoming curses or negative juju thrown your way.
- In addition, cleanse and charge a protective amulet to wear on your person while out and about.
- If you have a relationship with any God/deity or your ancestors, evoke their protective energies around your house and yourself.
- Know that the curse is broken and move on with your life. Forget about it! It’s done. You are safe and protected henceforth.
NOTE: Don’t forget it’s important to cleanse your space and yourself regularly. It’s also crucial to re-up your protective wards around your house and re-charge your amulets, etc. once a month. People forget that protecting one’s space and self with magick requires maintenance.
