Using Blood in Magick

Blood Sorcery can be embraced and performed by anyone with a passion for all things visceral and an innate need for more than one has. It is not for the timid. Not only because one must injure oneself to participate, but because one must make an agreement that the work at hand is an issue of Blood and Magnetism in one form or another and all responsibility lies with the doer.

One must also be willing to accept that Blood Magick is completely self-gratifying as all of your successes will feed your starved ego, and that is a very good thing for the person that you are. This joy in the capability of the self is vital and self-feeding. It is, in my opinion, the only path to fulfillment. If needing, desiring and ultimately achieving company, lovers, children, wealth, acclaim, suc­cesses of all types makes one a stronger person, then you will become entirely self-sufficient, never having to rely on public services for support.

Blood Magick Do’s

I use blood in my magic in almost every spell:

  • I dress candles
  • In mojo bags
  • on voodoo dolls
  • In potions I make
  • On sigils
  • On my spell papers (petition papers)
  • On my Book of Shadows, and other personal objects
  • On my Altar Tools
Especially when I am using hoodoo or voodoo methods in spell casting, I use more interesting ingredients, such as parts of animals’ bodies; an individual’s possessions; and bodily fluids, especially menstrual blood, urine and semen.

Also:

menstral blood
Keep your blood in the fridge, and make sure it is labeled
  • You only need a drop or two.
  • If you have collected your period blood, make sure you keep it in the fridge and label it with what it is, and the date it was collected.  This is especially important if you are using blood in potions to give to other people
  • You can add a drop or two in your lovers food or drink to keep them trapped to you and your will! This is actually an old Italian folk magick trick that has been passed down through to many various other magick traditions.

Collecting Blood

  • As you only need a few drops:
    • Use a pin to prick the top of your finger.Sometimes if you squeeze the top of your finger first, you’ll pump the blood to the surface and much easier
    • You can buy diabetic needles to make this easier and less painful. You can buy them in chemists or onlineDried blood flakes
  • Collect period blood anyway you like – it depends on the blood flow. If its fast, then just scoop some up with a glass jar, then label the jar and store it in the fridge for later use. Sometimes you can use a lunapad to collect heaps of blood, then just pour it in the glass jar for storage in the fridge.
  • If you collect the blood in a container, you can spread the blood over the slide of the container before putting the container in the fridge. When the blood dries, it will turn into “blood” flakes, which I like to put inside of various spells, including mojo bags and poppets.

Remember:

  • Blood-spells cannot be undone.
  • Remember that your blood is your essence.
  • Without your blood a spell carries your intent, your purpose, your focus and drive.  With your blood a spell carries all that plus a piece of you.
  • Blood spells require quite a bit more energy than non-blood spells.
  • Breaking a blood spell is near to impossible unless you can un-burn, un-spill, un-wash or un-scatter.
  • Blood magick is the act of using blood as a tool when making a protection amulet, performing a ritual, casting a spell, binding,  hexing or cursing.  
  • The results of a blood-spell is stronger than that of a regular spell, for all those involved, for better or for worse.

Depending on the intent of your spell you may need different supplies.

Follow all the same steps of typical spell casting and add a few drops (3 for spiritual matters and 4 for earthly concerns) of blood to your charm, written spell or element of choice.

For deity-involved spell-casting your blood is an offering.  Treat your blood with the same reverence you do the incense, food or other offering.

If you are using Fire magic you can drip the blood onto the paper before burning.  It will not cause your blood to boil or anything like that. It will release a tiny bit of your essence from the physical plane into the spiritual.

If you are practicing Earth magic dripping your blood onto the Earth will not cause the Earth to open up and consume you.  It will release a tiny bit of your essence from the physical plane into the Earth’s energy.

If you are practicing Water magic no leviathan will emerge from the depths of the drain to eat you.  It will release a tiny bit of your essence from the physical plane into the sea of the cosmos.

If you are practicing Air magic the wind-swept blood droplets will not cause a tornado to destroy you or your home.  It will release a tiny bit of your essence from the physical plane into the atmosphere.

If you are casting your spell with the help of a deity/demon/spirit,  research your deity’s opinion of blood.  Learn the story of your deity and make a guess.  Follow your instinct.  Your deity will let you know if the blood is appreciated or not.

If you have the need for a sudden spell without time for preparation skip the blood. Life essence is nothing to trifle with.

Females in menstruation: If you are not asking the assistance of any deity or energy but casting purely from your secret self, pleasure is better than pricked fingers any day. So use your period blood!

Conclude your spell-work the way you normally would and go on with life.  Do not be surprised if the recipient of your spell feels like you must have had something to do with the change in their life.  There is no such thing as an anonymous blood-spell.

Blood-spells hold on longer and act more swiftly than bloodless spells.  There isn’t a way to remove a blood spell.  You can’t soak your blood out of the earth or water, you can’t recall it from the wind or un-burn it.  The magic has been worked and cannot be undone.

As with all spells the effects will fade over time.  Remember…. BLOOD-SPELLS CANNOT BE UNDONE!  (Except by your death!)
