Part 1
Understanding Black Magic

    Consider the outcome you want to bring about. What trouble is plaguing you so much that you want to use black magic to correct it? Black magic is considered a dark art because you use it to get what you want by means of controlling someone else.[1] If your aim is to help others or bring about some form of peace and justice, look into white magic instead. If you want to practice magic for personal gain, black magic is what you should use. Here are common reasons why people use black magic:
    • To keep someone bound in place. If someone is harming you and you wish to stop them, you can use a binding spell to stop the person's actions.
    • To cause someone to be attracted to you. Love spells are among the most popular when it comes to black magic.
    • To achieve immortality or improve your health.
    • To communicate with the dead.

    Know the basics of a black magic ritual. The ritual you use to perform black magic will depend on your desired outcome. There are different rituals for everything from casting a spell to gain wealth to raising the dead from their graves. Most rituals involve the following elements:
    • A site is chosen for casting the curse or spell.
    • A circle is drawn on the casting site, and a pentacle is drawn inside the circle. This is called a circle of power.
    • Candles, herbs, crystals, charms, and other materials are employed to help draw out the spirits.[2]
    • Words of power (relevant to the particular outcome you want) are repeated three times.

    Understand curses and hexes. Aside from conducting a classic black magic ritual, there are other ways to perform black magic. Placing a curse or hex is done as a way to bring ill fortune to another person, or to make them do what you want them to do. Be very careful about using curses and hexes. It's up to you to determine whether your reasons for wanting to bring misfortune to another person are valid. You must use your power wisely.

    Make sure you're willing to deal with the consequences. Awakening the forces of darkness can be a serious move and should not be done lightly.[3] The threefold law (Wiccan Rede) states that what you put forth comes back to you threefold. Do you feel so strongly about using black magic that you're willing to suffer should the magic come back to harm you? Be sure that the outcome you are hoping to obtain is completely worth it.

Part 2
Performing a Ritual

  1. Image titled Do the Black Magic Step 5
    Draw a circle with a pentagram inside. This powerful symbol is present during most black magic rituals. It is traditionally drawn in the ground using a wand hewn from a hazel tree. You may use a stick or another implement to draw the symbol if hazelwood isn't available. Choose a strategic location that will give your spell the best chance to work.
    • Spirits will have a harder time visiting a location that's populated by a lot of people, so choose a place in the woods or another area not frequently visited.
    • Graveyards are a classic place to choose if you're planning on conjuring the dead.
  2. Image titled Do the Black Magic Step 6
    Step into circle of power. Once inside, gather your concentration and energy. You will need all the energy within you to complete the spell. Don't let yourself get distracted.
  3. Image titled Do the Black Magic Step 7
    Recite the words of power associated with your desired spell. Each spell has different words of power that are recited to achieve the outcome you want. If you are summoning a demon or some other spirit, you must learn its true name before the spell will work.
    • There is no one spell that will work to bring true love, give you immortality, and so on. Do research to find a spell, or write your own if you'd like.
  4. Image titled Do the Black Magic Step 8
    Write your spell in your grimoire. A grimoire is a sort of textbook for spells, with instructions on how to use black magic.
  5. Image titled Do the Black Magic Step 9
    Prepare for your results. If your spell works, the outcome you desire will take effect. Prepare for this, and prepare also for the evil that may come.
    • If you have summoned a demonic beast or spirit, treat it with respect. These creatures do not necessarily have loyalty to their summoner.

Part 3
Placing a Hex

  1. Image titled Do the Black Magic Step 10
    Make a poppet. Choose a piece of black cloth and cut two layers in the shape of a small person. The shape should look vaguely similar to the person on whom you want to place a hex.[4] Sew the edges together but leave the top of the head unsewn.
    • Black cloth is best, but if you don't have it on hand, you can use another color.
    • Your poppet should be created from all natural materials. Avoid using polyester fabric or other man-made fabrics; black magic is not as easily conducted through manmade materials.
  2. Image titled Do the Black Magic Step 11
    Fill the poppet. Fill it up with earth, a few powerful crystals, and hair and nail clippings from the person you want to hex. Sew up the head to close the poppet.
  3. Image titled Do the Black Magic Step 12
    Prepare a sacred circle. Draw a circle using chalk or a stick, then draw a pentagram inside it. Alternately, you may draw a sacred circle on a piece of paper large enough to stand on. Light candles around the circle before you step inside.
  4. Image titled Do the Black Magic Step 13
    Stand in the circle and speak the words of your spell over the poppet. Repeat the words of power three times. Here are a few examples of words you can use to place your hex:
    • To cast a binding spell and prevent the person from taking actions, repeat "I bind your feet from bringing you to harm me. I bind your hands from reaching out to harm me. I bind your mouth from spreading tales to harm me. I bind your mind from sending energy to harm me."[5] Say this while wrapping the poppet in black ribbon.
    • To cast a love spell over someone you desire, say the words, "Bright the flame. Light the fire. Red is the color of desire."

    Let the candles burn down. Once they have burned completely, the hex has been cast.

  • Consult a professional Black magic practitioner.
  • Be consistent with beliefs and traditions you have.
  • For fun, make your own spells. This makes it much more personal, though some times they will be ineffective.


  • "Ever mind the rule of three, what ye sends forth comes back to thee."
  • Don't go around hexing/cursing everyone! Casting to many spells at once or too close to each other can drain your energy and make the spells less powerful. Be careful.
  • Be prepared for evil to come knocking at your door.
  • You may not be able to stop what you have started it. Continue with caution. Have no regret in your actions, regret will assure your destruction.
