The Backhanded Blessing
There’s this thing that I practice called the backhanded blessing. A close friend of mine taught me the concept. It works well in my practice because while I’m spiritually bound against cursing and other aggressive magick except in very specific circumstances, I have no specific prohibition against working magick on other people. That’s not to say I don’t tread a fine line here, but strategically blessing individuals has served me well thus far.
A successful blessing in this manner might look like this. There is a coworker who really irritates me. They are a greedy, lazy, tip-stealing individual who takes advantage of fringe benefits (such as being able to eat/take home left overs) to an uncouth degree. More than once they have gotten me kicked off of a party in order to be able to keep the entire gratuity cut for him/herself. They take credit for other people’s work, lets others do the (literal and figurative) heavy lifting and all around aren’t a team player.
They have also now been blessed with an opportunity for employment elsewhere.
Another individual decided that it was OK to copy my glass etching designs and techniques, then list them up for sale for cheaper on the same site. I promptly delivered a blessing in the form of opportunity overload. Clearly they had a lot of time on their hands, and now had so many other opportunities they could not keep up with their new hobby. The shop in question went offline due to being “swamped with life.”
And you can do it in more ways than as a tricksy banishing. Got a friend who won’t leave your boyfriend alone? Bless them with a boyfriend of their own. Got a person who owes you money? Bless them with a windfall of cash (or better yet a job) and then do attraction work to bring that cash away from them and into your pocket.
I once even blessed a noisy roommate with the wisdom of silence. That was an interesting week.
In other words, this is a very clever way to eliminate troublesome people and situations without actually doing anyone harm. See, I am not permitted to harm another person intentionally and maliciously without a damn good reason and permission from the higher ups. Ultimately it doesn’t matter to me what happens to the other individual. My now former coworker might have indeed found a much better job elsewhere. They might have settled for something shitty. However, that’s up to them and what they make of their new opportunity. I didn’t actually bind them into any particular path and they genuinely have a chance at something better—away from me, and the money they were helping him/herself to that I bust ass to earn.
So there you have it for your own consideration. This is how I deal with people who aren’t worth the energy it takes to curse, but still provide a source of irritation for me. Left-handed blessings are a creative, elegant, gentle solution. <3.
this is so important wow
people forget that south africa ended apartheid only two decades ago
People also forget that because of that, there are severe anti-white sentiments in South Africa to the point that a lot of the white people there don’t feel safe in their own country
i don’t ever want to go to college, it’s terrifying and i hate it there. 4 months was enough, maybe even too much
