Okay, first thing’s first! You need to identify whether or not you know for sure you’ve been cursed, whether you have evidence that you’ve been cursed, or whether there’s another explanation. Think carefully about whether or not you really need to use any hex- or curse-breaking spells.
Note that some magic users make a distinction between hexes and curses. A hex is a spell that was cast knowingly and is intended to bring misfortune to another person, while a curse can be an accidental result of a nasty thought, or something like that. Don’t jump the gun with how you respond!
Next, there are some basic curse-breaking spells. Sprinkling red pepper around the home is a good way to remove a curse, as is burning bay leaves – one at dawn, and one at sunset. These should be sufficient for removing most negative magic that may have been cast on you.
If these don’t work, however, you can try a reflection spell, which is what I used this past week to break a curse I believed to be placed on me. Anointing a black or white candle in oil (I used patchouli, but even simple cooking oil works here), roll it around in a mixture of black pepper and oregano so it’s thoroughly coated, then set it on top of a small mirror and burn it while reciting this incantation:
“Return to your maker,
and leave me in peace.
Should the way be barred,
Your power will cease.”
This incantation ensures that, even if the one who hexed you has put up defenses against reflection, then the spell will still be lifted from you. Dispose of the remains of the candle outside, then cleanse yourself and your home immediately upon casting. I recommend patchouli incense for cleansing your home, if you have it!
Other methods of breaking a curse include submerging yourself in a natural body of water, purifying your aura with selenite, taking a bath with epsom salt and hex breaking herbs (bay leaves, fennel, jasmine, and nettles are all common choices), and cleaning your house with water infused with hex breaking herbs. Mop the floors, clean the walls, wash the doors and windows, and when you’re finished, throw the mop water out the back door.
Remember, above all else, to never cast a spell to bring harm to someone else. Magic should come from love and a desire to improve the world. To quote the Buddha: “If you truly loved yourself, you could never hurt another.” Curses will find their way back to their caster someday, and karma won’t let them off the hook. If you walk the path of destruction in magic, then your ultimate destination will only be destroying yourself.
