Is Witchcraft Real? The answer is open to debate and very much depends on the individuals point of view. Witchcraft as a way of life or religion is as real as any other belief system, but if the question is asking about witchcraft with relation to magic that is an entirely different situation.

Cave paintings can date witchcraft as a way of life back as far as forty thousand years, with pictures depicting the worship of nature often evident. Witchcraft is closely tied to nature which is why this type of historical finding is associated with it. This makes witchcraft one of the oldest religions in the world.

Other religions make frequent references to witchcraft, particlualry parts of the Christian faith, which persecuted witches during the Middle Ages. Clearly these people believed in witches and witchcraft enough to see them as a threat worth irradicating. The practice of witchcraft was linked with heresy during this time to justify the many witch hunts of the period, which resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands of mostly innnocent people.

The magic or spells associated with witchcraft are also very much down to belief in most cases. Christianity, as an example, classes this type of unknown as a miracle, which is just another term for magic. The changing of water into wine by Christ is a miracle to a Christian, but to those who do not follow the same religion it can be viewed as a spell or illusion.

The majority of Traditional Witches dating back to before the Middle Ages were often the village healers and frequently used various herbs and plants for medicinal uses. The fact that various potions and paultices actually did heal branded them as witches purely because that was the way to class such practices. Modern day herbalists are not classed as witches but as practitioners of medicine.

There were suspect activities practiced by witches but these activites were not necessarily unusual for the time period. Sacrifices and demonic worship are often associated with witchcraft but there is no actual proof that they are linked. Modern day witches deny any such practices and there is evidence that these practices were merely linked to assist with other religions persecution of witchcraft.

Dancing around a tree or gathering in a stone circle at various times of the year or during full moons is seen today as acting strangely. Perceptions change. This is how religion was practiced by people in those times and was a way of life to them. Going to church on sundays could just as easily be seen as strange in three hundred years time, but today it is seen as a normal religious practice.

Haitian Vodou Free Voodoo Love Spells

Haitian Vodou Free Voodoo Love Spells Image
It's time to learn some FREE VOODOO LOVE SPELLS. Have you been struggling with the concept and desire to understand the fundamental logic and mystery behind the ancient discipline? Most people are aware that several voodoo spells involve the acquisition of a practice doll that will represent your target subject, what people don't realize is that this art form is not centered on malicious intent but there are several incantations that are extremely positive and useful if performed correctly by the practitioner.

If you really want to go all out there are life size voodoo dolls available and they will give you a lot more access to pinpoint certain areas on the body in which your intent is to affect. One of the most common uses is the relief of migraine headaches. A very popular doll has chi meridians and acupuncture points which may end up being extremely useful for someone that wants to use their talent for healing which is very possible. Oriental medicine is not so dissimilar in the sense that both fields use the application of needles except one is in a doll and the other is in a human being or living creature.

The doll is merely a representation of the subject and in that regard has just as much power because of its conscious connection to the target. Unfortunately voodoo is often used to cause pain and suffering and is many times referred to as a dark art.

The following are things that voodoo spells have often been used for:

1.) Physical harm or the induction of pain in an enemy.

2.) Bad luck often induced with something called a "Hex."

3.) To stir up emotions of love and attraction in a potential mate

VOODOO LOVE SPELLS have been around for ages and the craft has been derived from African magic and religion. The term Voodoo itself comes from Haiti and is also referred to as Voudoun. People in the United States refer to the magic as Hoodoo. This form of magic is extremely powerful and has an extreme focus on names. If you stop to think about how much your name has affected the opportunities you receive in life you may be amazed at the sheer and awesome power that your name holds.

Often times practitioners of this unfamiliar magical discipline decide to change their names to become more relatable to the source of their elemental powers. Some of the most famous masters in the craft include Dr. Snake and Dr. Crow. Much of the craft is centered on mind control and it plays an extremely vital role in the effectiveness of spells and incantations.

More important than anything else is to have the ability to believe in your conjure wholeheartedly without fail, breaking the confines of the conscious mind and implementing the unconscious powers that are lying dormant within us all.

Most masters have the ability to conjure without complex or elaborate techniques but for beginners it is best to master the art of trance induction in order to shed the confines of the conscious mind and enter a state of complete control, a trance if you will and the complete submergence in the power of the unconscious mind.

Dr. Snake's voodoo spellbook has an excellent method for inducing trance. This is a highly recommended book if you are serious about becoming a master in this craft. It is recommended that you seriously think about your decision to learn this discipline because it has the possibility of completely transforming your life and existence, opening a doorway to the spirit world is not for the weak of heart. Find the inner strength within yourself (or use phone psychics) and see if you are ready to play with forces that are unexplainable by conventional wisdom.
