Have you been having an incredible streak of bad luck that seems to go beyond coincidence? Do you have any people who would do anything to see harm come your way? Do you come from a culture or background that is steeped in spiritual and occult arts?
If so, without even knowing it, you could potentially be the target of black magic one day. Most people believe it will never happen to them—until it does.
Better safe than sorry. Try one of these methods to protect yourself before it even happens.
Strengthen your spiritual shield
Believe it or not, you have natural defenses to ward off any ill-intended magic. It’s important, however, to keep those defenses in good order. In order to keep your spiritual shield strong, it requires you regularly to cleanse your aura and protect your chakras (your body’s major energy vortexes).

You can do this by seeing a psychic healer, or by learning to do it yourself in trance meditations. Either way, consider it part of your regular “maintenance” routine.
Salt is a mineral of the earth that has long been hailed for its cleansing and purifying properties. Just like it can slow down bacteria from rotting your food or pickle your vegetables to protect them from rot, salt can also make an effective barrier against black magic.
In some fantasy movies you find people making a circle of salt around themselves for protection. While this is certainly effective, it’s just not practical unless you plan to spend your days sitting in that circle.
The good news is that salt doesn’t have to be in the form of a circle to protect you—you can sprinkle it around the entire perimeter of your home and it will have the same effect. Any time you are home, you’ll know you’re safe.
Get an amulet
Amulets are protective objects that you can carry with you. While you have them in your possession, they can repel black magic and malevolent beings. Some possible amulets to consider include religious medals, religious symbols, crystals or herb pouches.
There are too many different types of amulets here to mention, but the important thing is that you believe in its power.
Laugh it off
Black magic is no joke, but sometimes you have to treat it like one. Magic is energy, and so is joy and laughter. They are opposing energies; when they clash, the one can neutralize the other.
Granted this does not work with all black magic, but if you feel the effects of something you suspect may be black magic it is worth a try. Have a good laugh at the expense of the spell and spell caster. It might dispel your problem right then and there.
When all else fails, a mirror spell turns black magic back towards the caster. Mirror magic involves leaving a black candle lit in front of a mirror all night long in your room. Black absorbs energy, particularly negative energy. The mirror will redirect the residuals back from whence they came.
One important thing is not to look at your own reflection in the mirror while the candle is burning—so face it toward a wall or corner that people don’t usually walk by. Blow out the candle and bury the remnants, then put the mirror away until you can cleanse it with salt water or sage incense.
The only real difference between black magic and white magic is intent—it’s the same kind of magic, but white magic is accomplished with the intent to do good things and help others. Black magic is aimed at someone for the sole purpose of doing harm. No matter what the intent, magic is energy sent to you with a purpose behind it. If you’re worried that purpose is anything less than friendly, you need to stop it in its tracks.
