In my book How To Prevent Psychic Blackmail: The Philosophy Of Psychoselfism I write the following: "Voodoo, witchcraft, black magic, hexing, crossing powders and all the rest feed on two things: guilt and fear. This is a perfect example of how people are psychically blackmailed by negating their own minds by attributing 'special powers' to black art practitioners as an escape from self-responsibility. This is done as a defense against their own guilts. Psychoselfism has fought these, frauds many times.
The only power any person has over your life is the power you give him. The evil trinity that makes such things possible is fear, faith and fraud... sometimes backed up by force. The belief in 'evil spirits' is a confession of this. The only way they can assuage their own guilty consciences is by projecting unto the unseen that which lies within themselves. No healthy, thinking person is ever bothered, let alone believes, in such a thing. And even if this was remotely true these believers are forgetting something: Like attracts like!
Myrna was involved with a married man. His wife somehow found out about the affair and began telephoning Myrna at all hours of the night, saying, "I've just stuck a needle through your stomach. Do you feel it? You will. Tomorrow you'll suffer terribly. I have the power to put you in your grave and I will." Myrna really got sick, had terrible stomach aches, and couldn't function. I told her: "Myrna, use your head.
You're punishing yourself because you feel guilty about your relations with this married man. You're using his wife as the spokesman for your own conscience. Of course her witchcraft is working: Your guilty conscience is the fertile soil in which she can successfully plant her witchcraft. If she has such power why does she have to let you know about it? Why couldn't she have used it silently even before she found who you were, and affected a break-up between you and her husband then? Your battle is with yourself. There's only one way that you can win. Break off with Joe.
Your Catholic upbringing is working against you as long as you go on this way. Now here's what you do: Fight fire with fire, or more precisely, fight witchcraft with witchcraft. When she calls again keep her on the phone. Tell her: "You can have your husband. Who wants second-hand merchandise anyway? By the way: How do you feel? Had any stomach cramps lately? Not sleeping well? Don't worry ... it'll get worse. I'm sticking a needle in your wax image. I've got one of your hairs from your husband's suit.
When I get through with you we'll see who's the better witch. Then hang up." After a couple of tunes of this the wife stopped calling. Whether she believed in her witchcraft or not, or whether she was just working on Myrna's guilt, Myrna's new found self-confidence, and the fact that she let her know that "I can do anything to you that you can do to me by witchcraft" ended the wife's "fun".
