While all of us are well versed with the term ‘black magic,’ and that it is a form of supernatural activity to cause harm to others, we may not be aware that the practice is highly technical. Shobha uses a voodoo doll to perform black magic and has to conduct certain rituals to make the magic successful. Here’s all you need to know about black magic.
The origin of black magic
It is said that black magic originated in primitive times, when people worshiped spirits. It was practiced during the renaissance period, and was used to call demons and spirits and use them to cause harm to people such as destroying their crops.
Black magic and voodoo
Voodoo has been associated with black magic. However, hexing and cursing can be considered as a form of black magic but voodoo is a completely different practice altogether. In voodoo, certain rituals are used that are distinct from black magic and witchcraft.
Black magic and religion
Black magic is associated with the religion of Satanism, which is condemned by the Catholic Church. But there are other religious that find their link with black magic, one of them being Black Mass, which is sacrilegious parody of the Catholic Mass.
While black magic has some followers and practitioners, there is a large section of people who condemn it and take a more practical approach. What are your thoughts about the same? Tell us in the comments section below.
