Many of the requests for information I receive concern ways of breaking hexes
and lifting curses. Ninety-nine percent of these people are not now, and never
will be, the target of curses or hexes. Contrary to popular belief, evil magicians
don’t lurk behind each tree ready to hex everyone out of existence.
When people feel that they have been hexed, cursed, jinxed, or psychically
attacked, an ordinary cause can usually be traced for the supposed hex. No
matter how certain these people are of their condition, they are simply victims
of life and their own fears and worries. A run of accidents, mishaps, illnesses,
financial and emotional losses, even car trouble will provide the basis
for imaginary hexes.
Although most hexes are imaginary, some are not. Additionally, it is a wellattested
fact that the mind has a powerful effect on the body. If a person
believes him- or herself hexed, its physical effects (if any) will usually manifest.
Thus many herbs are used for their traditional ability to remove evil spells
and curses. They work—whether a hex exists or not.
