— What is the love spell and what is the influence of it for a human?
— Love spell is the use of magic in order to connect the person to you. According to the Canon of the Scripture (the Rule 65 of St. Basil The Great), the magician doing it is out of communion for 25 years and person who ordered it – for 6 years. This is the evaluation of Orthodox Church of such action.
What is the technology of the love spell? Normally with the help of some procedure, nasty as standard, prodigal demon or the demon of jealousy is sent to the person. Why such nasty even for the customer technologies are being used for it? Because the angel of darkness hates people so much, that wants not only to destroy their souls, but to mock at them more, to force to make nasty things. While this, demon tries, as it is called, to kill three bids with one stone – the person who ordered love spell (customer), who made it (vendor) and person for whom the love spell is done. For this goal, demon pretends to work for the magician. Actually the magician works for the demon.
I met lots of people suffered because of the love spell. I will give two examples.
Wife thought that her husband is unfaithful to her. She contacted one “old woman” and that one put her up to add some liquid into the tea of a husband in order he start loving her again. Woman received what she wanted but partly. Husband was still indifferent to her in carnal area. But at the same time he got strong aggression. Couple of times he attempted suicide. These attempts were connected with the power of devil, which controlled him and started to destroy. The wife came to us, to the center of St. John of Kronstadt, in horror. That soothsayer told her: “I do not know what to do, run to church”…
In the second case the victim of the love spell came to us. It was a middle-aged man, let’s call him Alexey. Alexey “run around with” one young lady, not beautiful, even ugly as he told by himself, but she had own charm. They regularly had prodigal relations, but he was not planning to marry her, moreover he wanted to break up. Once he came to her and said: “You know, I want to break up”. She said in return: “Good. Let’s take a cup of tea at parting”. They had tea. “When I reached my house, I felt strong tension to her. On one hand I do not like her, but on the other hand I feel attraction both in soul and body”, - he said. Moreover the attraction he felt was so amotivational and unreasonable.
Alexey started to fight with it. He failed, returned to that woman. He felt like a dog keep on a short leash. He was married with her. But at the same time she started to hate him. She started to humble him, pressed him. There were constant scandals. Later on she left him, started dating with another man. But Alexey still felt attraction to her.
His mind won that game and he stared to fight. As a result he wasted way. The muscular dystrophy started. He lost nearly 7 kilos of muscle bulk. He looked like skeleton. One year and a half before he was a well-fed man.
Alexey contacted one priest and he said him: “Read the books of father Andrey Kuraev, you will understand that no magic affect the christened person. There is no drying or wasting away, it is only fantasy and superstition”. Alexey was christened thought he did not used the church sacraments. He started to read the books of father Andrey Kuraev, which proved that magic does not affect christened people…
But facts confirm that magic does affect! By the way, the church service, that took place this Paternal Saturday, prayed for people who died because of “soothsayers’ spells” and “sorcerers”. It is obvious that Orthodox Church is aware that magic affect even the christened people.
What had happened later? Alexey came to magic once decided that Church could not help him. He visited seven soothsayers, and after each visit he became worse. Each “presented” him with something: one with the headaches, another – with enuresis. He got a whole branch of diseases. With panic he run to our Center with understanding that he could not follow this way.
I had to explain him that in the Center there is knowledge on magic, power of dark forces and the way to protect. He accepted the sacrament of confession. The general confession, which is the confession on all the sins during life, because prodigal sins allowed him to be affected by demons. In addition, he accepted the sacrament of Anointing. After this the attraction to that woman stopped and the muscular dystrophy stopped as well. I saw him in two months, his weight recovered about my ears.
— We see that the love spell works. But what does the customer receive? Can he force to be loved by a victim?
— It is not possible to force to love. It is only possible to force to fill with lusts. Love is such a condition, which could not be forced against your will by anyone, even by God. “Love cannot be compelled” – these words of the Russian proverb. I would like to remind simple Christian truth. Love is not a feeling. Love is a condition of the will.
As Paul the Apostle says love is the combination of perfections. And it is not possible to reach perfections and graces without efforts of will. Love “suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not, charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil, rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth, beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things” – this is only possible under volitional condition of a human.
Because love is the volitional condition, God gives commandments on love to God and the neighbor. If love is only feeling, in this case, of course, the commandment on love would never exist.
— What to do for a person who ordered the love spell?
— This person, first of all, should understand that he or she made a cardinal sin. If person does not confess in it, he or she will be in hell after death. This sin is of the same degree as murder. Love spell is the murder of soul and own and the soul of another person.
What to do? If you still keep the relations with the victim of the love spell, it is needed to stop the fornication. You need to go to the church immediately and to confess on the sin done, to make it up with the Church. It is also needed to pray God for the person, whom you tried to make a love spell for and to pray to remove the dark forces from this person. It is needed to order the prayer service St. Cyprian and St. Justina. It is needed to ensure the victim of the love spell to use the church sacraments as well. By doing so you both could unload the effect of the love spell and sin.
And, of course, you should not repeat this sin and not to advice to others.
— What to do for a person who is concerned to be a victim of a love spell?
— “The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?– Holy Scripture says. If you are with God, do not be scared.
So Justina was tried to be affected by the love spell. They made the classical love spell for her. By the way, the level of it was very serious. Cyprian was a “cool” magician. He personally contacted Satan. And so what? Justina was attacked by the regiment of demons; she felt lust and the attack of the enemy. Justina asked God, Mother of God, kept the fast, started to sleep on the ground and make a low bow. And these demons started to run away from her.
This is the example that magic and demons could do nothing for people who are not only christened, but who live in church and try to fight against attacks of the evil. If you feel the symptoms of the love spell, keep the fast. Use the church sacraments, commune by the bread and wine. Pray Mother of God, the Queen of Holy. Mother of God is also called as Holy Despoina protecting us. As Holy Scipture says: “The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.”
I wish all people, first of all, to learn how to respect others. Love spell is the sign of extreme disrespect to another person. To the person whom you think you are in love with. If you really love, you will not make the love spell, you will respect the person, the human and his freedom. Learn to respect others. Learn to win confidence of people whom you are in love with by your graces. This is more difficult, but it is the only way to be loved.
