Black Magic

This usually suggests you feel another person is thinking badly of you, plotting against you, or trying to undermine you in some way. Consider who this might be. Awareness of the situation most often robs it of its power. It is only when it is affecting you unconsciously that it has power, or if you give it power by being frightened. It is being unaware, or your fear, that gives such things any power over you.

The black magic in the dream can also either suggest you wish to harm someone, if you are the magician, or that you are frightened of hidden things influencing you. Fear is the thing to overcome.

Although thorough investigation of claimed injury or death attributed to black magic has shown the real cause to be malicious aggression or murder, scientific research into the deaths of people who were said to have died as the result of a curse or a voodoo ritual, has shown the victims to have died of fear.

Death through fear is fairly common, and is reported by some doctors in connection with surgical operations, especially in the past. In 1887 Dr. Crile had watched helpless as his friend, William Lyndman died of shock after amputation of both legs. My uncle also died of the shock of losing his arm. My uncle, like William had lost little blood, and no vital organs were injured. Crile went on to develop anaesthesia and blood transfusion to counteract death through shock. But some forms of shock appeared to be outside any physical cause. In 1898 Crile was on an army transporter off Cuba and examined a young officer who was delirious with fear due to facing his first battle. He was as deep in shock as if his legs had been crushed by a wagon as William Lyndman’s had. This led Crile to become interested in exopthalmic goitre, an illness which produces a similar type of anxiety condition. Despite the use of anaesthetics, no one had successfully operated on such a goitre condition. Every patient died. Crile discovered why when he attempted such an operation in 1905.

While under anaesthesia the patient’s heart rate rose to 218 and the body temperature rose to a dangerous level. Despite no physical injury or infection, the patient died that night with a temperature of 109.6 F. Crile realised from his previous observations that it was fear that had killed the patient. Therefore he told his next patient, a young woman who needed the goitre operation, that he was going to give her a simple inhalation treatment. When she breathed in the anaesthetic, she therefore thought she was having a ‘treatment’ not an operation. She was the first person to survive the operation for exopthalmic goitre. Crile called it “stealing the goitre”, and was so impressed by the influence of emotion on the body he constantly stressed the importance of self control, and taught that calmness is strength.

Crile’s experience illustrates what can occur through threat of a curse or black magic. In our dreams we often portray something we deeply fear as an evil influence or person, or as an awful monster or ghost. Such fears usually relate to our own urges, such as anger or sexuality, but can be about any urge or thought that we have been led to feel is not permissible, or that we feel is downright evil. A demonic figure or environment might also be connected with very early babyhood experiences. The pain of birth is often depicted as hell or demonic influence in our dream symbolism. See: evil; witchcraft; The Con About Evil

Because the unconscious will use any belief system or cultural symbols we have absorbed to express a theme, the powerful images of witches or evil characters we see on films or in fiction are often used to depict important experiences. For example a dream in which a spell or curse is placed on one can portray the influence a painful experience has left on ones emotions. If you had been deeply hurt while in your mother’s arms, your unconscious would equate pain with being held close by a woman. This ‘cross wiring’ of associations could meaningfully be portrayed as a ‘spell’ which makes one feel frightened in the apparently loving situation.

can someone use blackmagic to come into my dreams? someone i work with has made comments that maybe they’re into magic and i sometimes have dreams about this person and now that person is making comments like “see ya tonight” when we don’t see each other outside of work and we work during the day. what is going on?


    -Tony Crisp 2012-10-09 14:17:32

    Mary – I doubt very much that the guy has the power to visit on demand. But what does have power is suggestions such as, “See ya tonight.” Such suggestions can arouse powerful emotional response and could let loose your own fears.

    Most magic is all about suggestion and it is wise to build a good positive outlook.

      I had a dream last night of a witch in all black going threw my backyard ( on all fours like an animal), I saw her from inside my house and I let off a really loud scream that happened to frighten her and then I attacked her with a matchete. I woke up feeling really scared and sweating.
      I went back to sleep only to be in a room with all men and 3 of them were the womans husband that I killed and then she appeared hovering outside the window, I ended up with a matchete again and I was just about to attack but I woke up.
      What could that mean?

Hi I just wanted to know what it means if someone left a gifted box with an animal skull and tarantula in it? Someone left that at my friends front door.

Its the first time I have landed on a dream interpretation page where there is additional scientific and real life explanations.

i had a dream that i was not in it was as if i was watching that this guy and lady were involved in some black magic and they walked up to a door and the guy said this is a black magic knobbed and he said to the lady to try to turn it. the lady very easily turned the knob bakwards for along time and then the other way before she opened the door i got a glimpse of the guys face and from the expression on his face i guessed that openening a black magic knob must be something tricky to do maybe that only certain people can do it and the ladys face was menacing and you could almost tell that she was someone different than she had told the guy she was evil then she opened the door and everything went black and i woke up with shock

Ive had multiple dreams where I had these powers to bring death to things I touch, to create fire, and black magic where I can destroy living and non-living things. Would that be considered as representation of fear I’m not facing or keeping hidden away?


-Cynthia 2016-08-26 14:13:00

I had a dream that i went to see my ex boyfriend that i haven’t heard anything from in two months.

Hello dear

I dreamed about my niece who is just a child. I saw that someone has done black magic on her. I saw her body being distorted. I was trying to buy cough medicine for her and when i got into a rickshaw, a black dog came suddenly and started licking my feet. After that, suddenly i saw myself flying on a bicyle. What does that mean

1 had a reflection where a man appear pointing finger toward my direction last night


    -Charlotte 2017-05-22 10:34:31

    Last night I had a dream about a couple I used to know (who I’d always been jealous of, because of their -coupled happiness), they had just bought a house along the coast and it was wrapped in plastic and looked like a smeg fridge, almost like buying ex shop furniture. She told me it was really high spec inside, and I was jealous. The girl was then inside the house not the same woman as I remember her being, she was more innocent, kinder looking, and when she looked at me she had huge emoji eyes , she appeared to be panicking, and huddled in a corner. I looked around the house, and noticed a bloody chickens foot tied to the window frame dangling inside the house, but hidden from view by a tea towel and then on another window frame was a kind of knotweed tied in a similar fashion.

    It occurred to me this was black magic, and I was wondering if this is my own fear of my own thoughts of jealousy, but also that I was possibly responsible for the omen.

    Do you have an idea of what this means? Thanks

      Hi – It would help you to understand your dreams, if you would read – http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/questions-2/#Summing and also http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/features-found-on-site/ which has so much information in.

      Nothing can replace your own ability to understand your dream. With a little effort you can do this by practising what is described in – http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson or http://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/getting-at-your-dreams-meaning/


      Charlotte – Yes, I think it is, and the dream is showing you the folly of such feeling. You need to realise that as a woman you have so much potential and creativity. See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/create-creative-creativity/

      Example: Tell me where was the Devil? I do not understand. Jesus, why have we not been tempted? There is no answer – at least, not from outside. But something within me speaks. It . . – says – – . wait, I begin to hear. It says. . – You . . . were . . . the Devil. It was. . . you – – . who tempted me. Your fear, your loneliness, your jealousy, your dependence on things of the world, on people’s opinion, on wealth as a means of self-respect, on hate as a means to love – all these you tempted me with. Now you have left me for a season, for with God’s wider view given with the Dove, I showed you the illusion of your gods – the emptiness of your fears, the powerlessness of your determinations. The shadow cast by the knots tied in your heart, your head and your belly, was the Devil. Like children’s hands held between a candle and the wall, your pains, desolation’s, and terrors have cast grotesque shadows upon your consciousness, which you took to be real, and you lived according to their demands. By these shadows men are led to war, murder, theft, terrible ambition, lust, even madness. All mankind is possessed by these shadows – by this absence of the Light, the Life and the Love. I come, not to condemn them but to redeem. For you are your own devil, and your own angel. But my hour is not yet come; when it does I will redeem.

    Taimur – You are on a journey that has ups and downs – because it is the journey we all make in life.

    Teeth falling out happen as we are ageing and getting near to the end of our body’s life journey. So this part of the dream is about how to, or how you will, face the death of your body. Your brother probably represents your inner advice, as brothers often do.

    The old woman whose face you cannot see is a figure of great power for good or bad luck, for she is a mother figure, the great female figure or influence behind all motherhood – its power comes from the essence of all female creatures over millions of years. She is the essence of womanhood.

    You cannot buy from her; money doesn’t come into it. She offers you both the opportunity to partake of life experiences, and also the fruits of Her wisdom. To bring the money to her at sunset, is saying that unless you can produce something worthwhile with before you die your life will lack value. The wisdom that you receive from this great part of you says that She will claim you both – Sulii – at the end.
