My boyfriend and I have been together for almost 10 years. We have a beautiful son. Great job opportunities slip between my fingers each and every time. I am constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop because nothing good ever happens to me. I went from lbs to barely lbs and steady losing weight no matter how many carbs I take in daily. Lately it seems that anyone who tries to help me in any way start to have problems of their own. Literally anything bad that could happen to a person has happened to me. Seems like everything in my life cancels itself out. I want to go to school but that takes money.
Can never keep money because of being unemployed. No money no school. No school no job. Stuff like that. I barely have a home and if I even blink or take a breath of relief I lose everything so my guard is constantly up. About a year ago I spoke with a physic. What she had to say shocked me. Which I knew but I never dreamed she would curse me. I was told she hated anyone who gets close to her son my boyfriend and had been messing with my life for years.
Broken Curses LP | Pow Wows
It makes sense because before I met her everything was fine. After I met her my mom lost my childhood home. I was only 19 at the time. I had never been able to manage to save any money. No one on earth seems to even like me even the ppl who claim to love me. I watched my friends just go out and do stuff with no problems but when I try I get knocked down every time. I was told by the psychic that the woman I am dealing with had been doing this crap for years. She was confronted by her son unbeknownst to me and the very next day I found black markings on my doorstep. Now I just feel trapped.
I am exhausted. I was told by the psychic that she was aiming to make this permanent on my life. This is no way to live. I need help and no idea what to do anymore! No one should have to live like this. Im so depress i just want to end my life ive done nothing wrong and everuhings a mess and nothings going right!
And ive always believed in god ive never new shit about this and i just cant take this shit i wana go get the girl and her mom myself idk what to do im so broke i hardly have even a dollar idk. Please someone tell her to try marijuna oil i know people that had brain tumor and still with us.
The list is lo g and keeps deletein. Ive been a good honest person my whole life. I dont steal and always give. Even broke i give money to people on the road with signs even if its a lie. A good god believing person screwed me out of , dollars because he made a mistake. Now he wont even give 10, back and he can easy.
A friends wife stole 32, out a bussiness i had with her husband and i only got some back. Then she stole from where she worked and when she got fired they gave her months off with pay and 30, Now im broke and my life sucks there all doing great where the Karma people talk about. Good people finish last. Sucks its that way but ive got nothing to look forward to.
My sister is dying of cancer , l can't help but think that it's some sort of karma as she wasn't very nice. This time around, I'm struggling to feel anything but thst she probably deserves what she has - sounds mean, l know - but when you realise. We must continue to pray for our enemies, and stay covered by the blood of Jesus , this is the only protection that we have, thank you all for the wonderful comments , testimonies and kind words, just know your not in it alone, leave it in God's hands and live your best life , the enemy hates that.
Hi my name is Maria ,I read a book by Sid Roth supernatural healing. The book tells us to pray Plams 91 from the bible for other or for yourself. Its speeking Gods word overyourself and will protect you. This really works as I pray this alot. May God bless you. I want to add that I prayed Psalms 91 over my brotherinlaw when he was on serious condiition at hospital due to a mistake on the doctors part and God helped him. It may be hard being a Christian at times, but not being a Christian can be way worse in the end ,especially if you're not living in a wholesome way.
Some may only have known one way to live , I'd suggest getting prayed over by good Christians in spiritual Church. Not acknowledging God won't protect, because if you're not with God , there's only one other option. Living a good life as a Christian eg helping others when you can isn't that much different than just being a good person - not too much sacrifice. This life is a test , l know it's an inconvenient thought for many, but compare a human life with eternity.
Eventually they will die an eternal spiritual death. One shouldn't t have the attitude that they can pray for forgiveness on their deathbed as death could take them by surprise. It's important to not get caught up in retaliation even though it's very tempting as this becomes a cycle - keep putting it in God's hands. Eg I'm broke, ;lonely , nothing seems to come to fruition - I'm beginning to lose hope which isone of the worst things that can happen.
I've always tried to live a good life without much recognition. Help take this hex off of me! It's going to kill me by the way my life has been affected including my health. I have no expierence in witchcraft and need lots of people cuz I believe there is a group. Please help. I was taken abroad when I was 16 and had an arranged marriage. I can honestly say I have never had anything good happen to me apart from my beautiful son. This all started when I went to India all those years ago.
Chaos, my half sister has always been jealous of me. She hexed me and all i ever did was love her? My husband and I have been separated for over 2 years. He met this girl they are on methamphetamines. He got in touch with me we started hanging out and was thinking about working things out. This made the girl mad she got him so far on drugs that he lost his house she sold all his property for drugs he lost his job when we were hanging out and he got a new job and was trying to get his life back and getting off the drugs. She came back into his life and now has total control over everything in his life.
I think he has a spell cast on him because I've noticed on her Facebook she's into some bad stuff. I've known him for ten years you cannot control this man but she has total control. She's got him mad at everybody he is not allowed to be on his Facebook he's not allowed to answer his phone he's not allowed to go anywhere.
Testimony and Battle Prayer to Break a Generational Curse Line
This is why I think she has some type of spell cast on him is there any way that you could help me get that off of him I get him back to himself he has abandoned his dog his children and his grandchildren his friends. He's a very sociable person and now he's like hidden away I need help please. She is not her same self, she has no feelings towards her parents anymore and has deattached herself completely.

- Moby-Stick; or, The Log;
- The Bunnys Night-Light?
- Lonely Stalker.
I've also had wicked things done to me my whole life , starting with my family! I now realise many things as l prayed for revelation. People putting evil on others are not in their right minds - they are being driven by an evil force guess who? For this reason one should pray over their enemies. Feel sorry for them that their minds are consumed with hate. When I already know that I have been subjected to wisdom snd knowledge freedom of how speech is spoken of how intelligence is righteous and how progressive development of a natural humane soul is within its basis of law.
I need some help. Everything was going good for me in my life untill my husband. We are no longer together. But I think he has his spell he once told me that he put on me. Is still on me. I need help. It sounds more like Gigibaker's story on here but it was my husband instead of cousin. I am so happy to find a place to talk about this. My cousin did black magic on me for almost 2 years. She was sleeping with my boyfriend while i was living with him and with whom I went thru hell and an ectopic pregnancy and even physical abuse.
She turned all my friends against me, and even the other guys I dated after she has done sexual things with. She talked to 3 of them at the same time even now and she made me the bad person. She taught my friends to go to places to do voodo to me. She even caused my car accident which I was about not to walk ever again. I run to a psychic on the road a few weeks after my accident and she told me to go to her and have a reading as I looked like something bad was happening, at first I hesitated but then was like why not.
So I went the woman told me that this cousin wanted me dead, and she was amazed I was still alive after all the curse that was put on me!! So I went to another psychic teo different towns apart just to see what she had to say, and the other one said the exact same thing. I guess when you got a good heart, never hurt anyone and you do good things for people, God does look upon you!
She used my clothing, my exes clothing and she even took my hair to do black magic on. All this while she was doing black magic to me and I was suffering emotionally and financially without knowing the cause of it. My relationships were a mess and no one would commit to me. Even my relationship with my mom was a disaster, the most important person in my life and I as fighting with her everyday for no apparent reason. After all she did, after all I went thru, I still do not curse the cousin or wish her bad luck.
So life really hasn't been kind for My dad and I our lives just go from bad to worse my grandmother told me when dad was younger he had the Greek curse evil eye but see knew the ritual and preformed it on him but I just feel even through I try not to that something over us what to do to find out if there's is?
Kayla believe me I understand your frustration because I am also facing similar situation. This girl was suppose to be my best friend she was going at any length to have life my first sign was bad luck then demonic attacks, then I could see my money when I got paid I was always broke and feeling possessive then I started to have awful breakout in my face no man would look at me and end up have move out of my apartment to live with family members including her move and went to stay with a her friend and 3 weeks after guess who moved into the very same apartment I have to move out of?
That same girl I was so shocked I cried to God for mercy because I worked as a single mother and helped this girl out of the kindness of my heart. One night again my car broke down on at work I was stuck there until 5am when I got my elder sister on the phone she sent a Uber for me. The next day i got in contact with 2 more ritualist one from Atlanta and another from my country the one from Atlanta words was someone is about to get your head you need help fast and the lady from my country said I am not trying to scare you but u can go to sleep and not wake up any day now.
I have the major part complete which is the death treats a little bad luck is still there and going back to put back the fire in my hands. Be careful who you call friends who u help because once jealousy enters the mind your own friends will plan to take your life and the worse part is hex is a struggle to get rid of is like gaining weight easily but struggling to get it off. How do i stop this person from cursing people i care for and how do i stop them from putting curses on others?
I believe I was cursed in a state university art college almost 8 years ago by who I am quite sure is a dark occultist and sex predator named Robert Rivers. This curse had led me and other young women to follow that professor and, overdose on drugs many times the 2 years I had been going there and it also kept me an outcast and emotionally broke me down to the point that i could barely dress myself to look decent And so i was outcasted there, scapegoated for Rivers sexual abuse of his students, and called crazy because of it The situation twisted up my mind The curse had kept a very strong hold on me for almost 8 years til a year ago I had a spiritual awakening and began seeking Christ I think I need serious help with this curse if anyone has resource information.
That situation still rests on me to this day and possibly has gone on in past lifetimes of this man and his coworkers abusing students in a psychopathic web, where i am at a loss in exposing this evil.
Im serious but the curse on me is everytime I jerk of or have sex i get bad luck for that day or the day after mostly coming late or just some other bs so i jerked off in a perfect moment came on time and when i came home my ipad that was in my bag and which kve been using for over 3 years suddenly had a cracked screen and i dont know how. A curse has been on the head of my family which is me now for years. Placed on my great grandfather with the last breaths of a dying man It isn't pretty.
Baptisms and holy waters made it mad If that tells you anything. Lunar My grandmother read cards for years using only playing cards. She had a core group of people who would see her and felt she was very accurate. Many people use standard playing cards for readings especially considering the price of some decks or maybe they just like the anonymity of it. There is still a wisdom in silence and doing your work quietly. At one time, it was not "cool" to display or even own Tarot cards. Hell, a deck of everyday playing cards was enough to get you trouble from a local church. So women did what they had to do.
Also, Tarot cards are based on playing cards. That is where the correlation between suits and numbers come from. I don't do things I used to love. I always iv always been in a relationship since I'm happiest when I'm sharing daily love. I am in love with my three children. I haven't had a friend for years.
I went to 3 different hospitals to get surgery was neglected and never got the surgery I need. This is so stupid Theres so many ways and this is the most misleading piece of crap ive ever read. Using selenite is basic stuff but it wont rid a curse. If you believe you are cursed look into a real hoodoo witch not an exemplor article. Some curses can even be dangerous to unhex because the person who did it can have you KILLED if they find out you are trying to.
Its best to see a real person not take advice from someone who doesnt even know what tarot cards are. Tarot doesnt have jokers or aces those are as you said, playing cards. Tarot is not a play thing it is an oracle. I pulled 2 cards, the third was an ace, in the second stack I pulled 1 card, it was an ace, and finally in the third stack I pulled 3 cards and the forth was an ace, I have only 3 aces in my deck, now I have no doubt I'm cursed.
Think someone has cursed my family for many many years so many people have died and other hard family things like really bad bad luck. Thank you this should help me I've been cursed with a bad luck hex for 12 years in a row I'm tired. I have been told repeatedly and more recently by mediums etc that I was cursed as a child out of jelouse Nature and that is why no matter how Good I am or how hard I try, things just don't go as intended. Honestly, great article, but I can tell you're a wiccan or a "light path" follower because of how you handle the description of the curses, specifically the one on lessons.
That sort of shaming towards cursing for justice is abusive and gaslighting, witches who practice revenge and justice curses are just trying to do something to get back on their wrongdoers, and many a time those witches are just hurting from abuse and feel like that's the last resource they have in their hands to get some control back on their situation that has forcibly put them on a position of powerlessness. It's disgusting to tell people to "just forgive and move on," no one can tell an abused person that, people have to work through their grief, and calling for justice definitely should not be placed in such a bad eye, mainly considering many a time those abusers never see any sort of punishment from anyone else, even society.
So no, I have to disagree with you deeply at how you worded about curses, you made it seem like cursing to get justice is as bad, if not worse than a binding, which IMO is WAY worse, since you're inflicting emotional and psychological pain, which goes far beyond some karma. Kayla - I have read your comments and just wanted you to see in case you came back on here that someone is reading and someone cares. See you at the BBQ. Drake made a joke about Culkin, who then made an even funnier joke.
The internet loves jokes. Especially when they get meta. Who is hosting a barbecue? How do I get an invite? But then it came out that after the game that they both met up at a fancy Toronto restaurant and are actually pals. So even though Culkin is trolling Drake trolling the Warriors, they are all still friends in the end. It really will be the ultimate test of the Drake curse. Sorry, what? Drake is cursed?
Possibly to Teach Him A Lesson but her motives aren't revealed. Disney's adaptation of Hercules involved a deal made between Hercules and Hades where Hercules would give his powers up for 24 hours in exchange for the safety of his Love Interest Megara. After a fight between Hercules and the Cyclops, a pillar was knocked onto Meg, fatally injuring her. As a result, Hercules' powers were restored. In Disney's The Princess and the Frog only the kiss from a princess can break the spell, all others need not apply.
They try to break the spell through deliberate Loophole Abuse , too. First Naveen and Tiana try to break the spell by having Naveen kiss Charlotte, who's been crowned Princess of Mardi Gras a ceremonial title akin to a prom queen. When they fail to do so before the end of Mardi Gras, Naveen marries Tiana. Since Naveen is a prince of the kingdom of Maldonia, their marriage automatically makes commoner Tiana a princess.
So when Naveen kisses her right after, the spell breaks. Bonus points that neither of them knew that that would happen. It stipulates that one who suffers from the sleeping death can be cured only by love's first kiss. Grimhilde dismisses the loophole since Snow White will be taken for dead and buried alive. Grimhilde obviously didn't read a lot of fairy tales as a child. Frozen ; "Only an act of true love can thaw a frozen heart. Just as well, as Hans was nobody's True Love.
In The Swan Princess , the curse that turns Odette into a swan and back ostensibly can only be broken by Rothbart himself if she marries him.

In Shrek , Princess Fiona is cursed from a young age to transform into an ogre at sunset and return to her human form at sunrise. Fun trivia? She was actually under an enchantment to be beautiful during the day.
This makes sense, in light of her father being a frog. True Love's Kiss. Further played with by noting that Rumpelstiltskin is obligated to provide an escape clause in his contracts, and he's had to resort to alternate forms of trickery to hide it. In Shrek's case, the words are scattered willy-nilly about the page and it requires origami to put it together.
There's also a passing mention of the "Correctly guess my name" escape clause from the original fairy tale. Apparently he stopped doing that after it got to the point that everyone knew his name. In Brave aside from the Celestial Deadline of breaking the spell before the second sunrise, there's an actual rhyme whose meaning Merida must puzzle out. She made a small cauldron for him, which he could use to gain the strength of ten men as he wanted, or he could instead use it to heal the rift he caused within his family.
As you can probably guess, he chose the former, slaughtered his brothers, and then his own men either turned on him, or fled in fear because they only saw a beast, not their leader. So unlike Merida, he ended up destroying his kingdom due to his wish to change his fate.
Films — Live-Action. Played with in Frog Story. The magic frog who turns into a woman apparently isn't cursed; she can turn back into a frog at will. But she does need a true love's kiss in order to change into a woman again. The lovers of Ladyhawke are cursed to be apart: she is a hawk by day, while he is a wolf by night. When they are reunited during a solar eclipse, the spell is broken.
Zig-zagged in Maleficent , when the title character curses Aurora, claiming that no force on earth can stop it once it is cast; King Stefan's begging appeals to Maleficent's sense of humor and she includes the True Love's Kiss escape clause. Neither Maleficent nor Stefan believe in true love after Stefan's betrayal, making it a cruel No Man of Woman Born situation in their perspective — though while Love at First Sight turns out to be a wash, Maleficent's own eventual love for Aurora as a surrogate parent is strong enough to overcome the curse. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl has the eponymous curse laid on the gold by the Aztec gods: Any man who removes but a single piece from the chest is cursed for all eternity.
The only way to break the curse is to return not only every single gold piece to the chest, but also blood from the one who took it. Merely possessing a piece from the chest is not sufficient to suffer the curse; it only affects those who actually remove the gold themselves. Moreover, the curse can be lifted only by the specific afflicted individuals or their direct blood descendants. Both the curse itself and the escape clause are employed strategically by Jack during the final battle.
In George MacDonald 's Little Daylight , a princess is cursed to be nocturnal and have her beauty wax and wane with the moon. When the moon is full, she's very beautiful and looks as young as she is; as it wanes, she gradually loses her beauty and seems to age. The condition of the curse ending is that a prince kiss her without knowing it. It's broken when a prince meets her or sees her when the moon is full, and then later meets her when the moon is new and platonically kisses the "old woman" he sees without knowing it's her.
In Neil Gaiman 's Stardust , a fairy woman is bound into service until "the moon loses her daughter, if it happens in a week when two Mondays come together". The condition is met by the moon "losing" her daughter the star to love, in the same week that Mr. Monday gets married. In Shaman of the Undead it's a healthy practice to include an escape clause in your immortal oath if the oath proves impossible to fulfill. You can make an oath without it, but you're doing it at your own risk, and if you fail to fulfill the oath, side effects include annoyed ghosts, lack of sleep and Heroic RRoD.
In George MacDonald 's The Light Princess , a witch curses a baby princess with her Baptismal water it's a very Christian book to "lose her gravity" — which means that she's tossed about by the slightest breeze, and that she cannot take anything seriously. The only time she is unaffected is in the water, so the kingdom's finest scientists reason that if she can be made to cry, the spell will be undone.
These are apparently mandatory on the Discworld : in Sourcery , a dying wizard tries to cheat Death by transferring his essence into his sourcerer not a typo son's staff. Death reminds him that, because only he is inescapable, there must be some loophole in the prophecy. The loophole is that the wizard would truly die when his son voluntarily threw away his staff. Which he did when he realized he just wanted to be an eight year old boy , not the most powerful wizard on the Disc.
The wizard had originally tried "till hell froze over," but Death stopped him because he was " not allowed to enlighten [him] on the temperature of the next world. For example, he created a magical prison for the destructive Sandgorgons, the flaw being that if a particular Sandgorgon's name is spoken aloud, it is released until it kills the speaker.
He wants Covenant's white gold ring, because being an alloy, it is "flawed" already, and thus can be used to create perfect works.
In Mercedes Lackey 's Tales of the Five Hundred Kingdoms series, setting and foiling these clauses is practically a science though it would have to be, since The Tradition, ambient magic in the land, causes events to turn out like whichever fairy tale they most resemble. If there isn't an escape clause in the curse The Tradition will put one in. It hates unbreakable curses. In Dragonsbane , by Barbara Hambly , the villainess performs a curse without 'limitations' and summons a dragon which she refuses to banish.
The heroine later figures out that she can't banish it, not won't, since the 'limitations' keep the curse alive and give the caster ongoing control over it. In Robert E. Howard 's Conan the Barbarian story " Shadows In The Moonlight " when a Physical God used Taken for Granite on his son's murderers, for some reason he let them move in the moonlight — which lets them plague people during that time. Fortunately, Olivia deduces this from her dream. In James Schmitz's Telzey Amberdon short story "Child of the Gods", Telzey is mentally enslaved by another psionic, with several of her most potent skills locked away.
In Jim C. Hines ' The Princess Series curse loopholes are explained as being about leverage and possibility; a truly unbreakable spell would require an enormous amounts of power but true love is rare enough that it's functionally the same as an unbreakable curse. Which also implies that people only hear about the notable cases — the rare ones that have been broken. Shadow Spell by Caro King from the Seven Sorcerers series features many of them: Azork - If he ever feels love again , his existence as leader of Cryptmonsters ends.
Simeon Dark - if somebody tells him who he is, he will remember everything and become the sorcerer again And Stroodds True Immortality also has one And while never explicitly stated, it's heavily implied that Nin's luck will expire if she ceases to be a Plucky Girl. As the Nav' have exterminated the Asura and hunted the Tat' down to three individuals, no details are known except that the prophecy must contain some specific trigger condition. The House of Lyud' carries the Harbringer prophecy.
While all male Lyuds are incapable of magic, a boy born with magic will change the very nature of the House of Lyud'. The Hyperboreans, upon losing the war against the united forces of Nav', Chud' and Lyud', willingly sealed themselves in pocket dimension known as the Deep Bestiary. Azag-Thot and his three mistresses stayed outside, and their coming into power would release the Hyperboreans.
Over the course of the series, a sizable Hyperborean army is released in this fashion, but some stay behind. The mistresses of Azag-Thot could not stay as they were. Their essences were grafted into three human women and are carried by their bloodlines, always skipping two generations and manifesting in girls. The carriers are easily identified, as they perfectly resemble their grand-grandmother, but resemble neither parent. The escape clause is imbibing a dose of the Golden Root extract or an artificial designer drug of the same structure and properties.
The Flying Dutchman exists as a ship of the name, cursed to forever attempt traveling around the Cape of Good Hope. The escape clause is actually completing the journey, but the crewmen on board are ageless and impervious to harm as long as they don't decide to quit. Bruce Coville : One story features an inversion: a ghost of a seafarer who simply could not stop wandering the world, much to the annoyance of his wife. Since she was a witch, she put a curse on him, that his ghost would only rest once man had walked on the moon, and he was told about it.
However, he's not in much of a hurry to move on, as he's found a young boy who's eager to hear his stories and the boy's friend almost spills the beans before he knows that. Because the locket magically causes all men to become obsessed with her and is the prison of Eros, god of love , she really wants to get rid of it.
Unfortunately, she can't break the love spell on it until a "mouse roars like a lion" and can't get the locket off without a "mother's touch". The mouse roaring like a lion refers to her overcoming her shyness and improvising a poem in front of an auditorium of people. The mother's touch is fulfilled when Aphrodite, mother of Eros, touches the locket while acknowledging she was wrong to separate him from Psyche. Holes : Elya Yelnats does not fulfill his promise to carry Madame Zeroni up a mountain and sing while she drinks from a stream, so she curses his entire family with bad luck.
When his descendant Stanley Yelnats carries Hector Zeroni up a mountain and sings while he drinks from a stream, the curse is lifted. The Sweet Valley Twins book The Magic Christmas , the magic of the fairy land the twins travel to requires curse escape clauses—though the caster of the curse can make it as difficult as possible to invoke the escape clause. The initial curse that the twins break to set off the adventure involves two princes who were changed into dolls until two different people could solve a riddle at exactly the same moment.
At the end, the heroes change the villain into a doll, keeping him in that form until the twins' friend Lila can come up with a rhyme for "kingdom. In Pavane In Pearl And Emerald , all curses have an escape clause as a side effect of the magic system. Unfortunately the protagonist doesn't know what the escape clause is for the curse binding the princess. Live-Action TV. Cleverly applied in Buffy and Angel : Angelus, described as "the most evil vampire on record," is cursed with a human soul, resulting in him having a conscience and suffering guilt for the years of atrocities he had committed.
The clever part is that the escape clause is "if he experiences true happiness", which in the season it became a plot point is explicitly defined as "one moment when his soul is at peace". Effectively meaning that the curse would break only when it was no longer making him suffer. When Angel has his night with Buffy, the one he loves, in the second season of her show, it's enough to activate the Curse Escape Clause and before Buffy knows it, it's Angelus time.
The curse is later deliberately broken when they need to ask Angelus some things Angel doesn't know, by hiring someone to feed him into a magic Lotus-Eater Machine.
What is a Generational Curse?
It was a bit subverted not sure if that'd be the right word for this when Wesley tells Angel to stop using the curse as an excuse not to go after a relationship opportunity with an interested woman who Angel met because she was bitten by a werewolf. After all, as Wes puts it, "Most of us have to settle for adequate happiness.
Also, the curse failed to break after Angel had sex with Darla, as this was an act of despair, not love. Once Upon a Time is all over this trope.
