possibly lost in darkness

Post # 1
there is something wrong with my friend, he is also a wiccan but he uses darker kinds of witchcraft. basically, there are times when he looks like he is about to go insane but holding it in, i shrugged it off until i realized that the strange darker auras i sensed, the cold feeling i get, all happen when he goes into that state. i tried to tell him, but he won't listen, he says he is fine but then i catch him using a spiritual healing spell after i thought i sensed another dark chill. the one time i looked at his aura, the usual peaceful dark energy was replaced with something worse, something more chaotic, and i see him slowly decaying on the inside, what can i do? for once i have no idea, this dark energy is not like anything i have seen nor heard from him, it feels strong, but chaotic in a strange way. please, someone tell me what needs to be done before it is too late

your friend seems more like a drama queen

If you are that concerned about your friend, cleanse and shield him. I have heard of practitioneres losing it due to paranoia or guilt depending on what they are practicing. I don't believe it is strictly an issue with "dark magic"

You can cleanse in numerous ways. Smudge them with sage, have them take a bath with sea salt, lavendar, lemon juice or even holy water if you are the religious type. You can also bathe them in white light utilizing visualization.

For protection a simple ward, charm or just building shields around them should suffice. If you are still concerned have them seek professional mental help. Best wishes :)

It is also possible that your friend has abnormal behavior, not because he is working with "dark energies" but because he truly does have some sort of mental disturbance. If that is the case he needs to be evaluated to make certain what is going on with him. Do you feel comfortable enough with his parents to let them know that some of the things he's doing feel wrong to you and your worried.

I sincerely doubt it has anything to do with Wicca as I don't believe that your friend is actually practicing Wicca at all. So in talking with his parents you don't even need to bring up the topic of Wicca. Just tell them you are worried about your friend and let them deal with the matter.

If you're concerned about your friend you could talk to him about it. I had/have my share of Pagan friends, and they're pretty understanding when you say something like 'your aura looks dark, is everything alright?' Sometimes the person is going through a rough patch, or maybe they're in need of a cleansing or something, it's best to talk to them.

Side note, while the Rede is up for interpretation, if your friend works primarily in curses, he's not Wiccan. Doesn't mean he's not a witch, but Wiccans don't go around harming people for no reason. Granted, if this is what your friend does, this 'darkness' you sense is probably a large build-up of negative energy that needs to be cleansed.

I agree with Lark. What you are describing sounds like you are skilled in reading people and you are experiencing his shift in mood and thought. If you feel strongly that "something is wrong" and it changes and shifts (like mental frames do), then what you are sensing is his mental health fluctuating for the worse. If you want to test this theory, take a trip through a mental ward in a hospital or visit a nursing home (now called "rehabilitation centers" for political correctness). I bet you'll get those same chills and strange dark auras from people that have never practiced witchcraft in their life.

I would talk with him and find out if he is having trouble at home before talking to his parents. You could make matters worse if they are abusive. Since you are both involved in the same beliefs, it should be easy to. Why don't you give him a reading and bring up these feelings in a general sense (not that it is involved with his craft). He may offer you an explanation and worse case scenario the reading itself may offer the explanation!

usually when someone looks at his aura, they see a dark energy but not like the recent one. usually it should be a dark energy but should seem filled with pain (as he has been neglected, tortured, bullied, almost everything in the book) by almost everyone in his life. now, when that chaotic energy is present it seems almost like he is empty inside. i would go to his family but they are not the best people to help him as if they knew about how he is not in their "perfect" ideals, they would pressure him back in that spot as soon as possible. i know he constantly bears so much pain he keeps himself occupied to the point of dangerous exhaustion some times to get away from it. this state his is going into and out of is tearing him apart, mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and i pray he does not find a way physically. he did not cast a spell or curse to do anything like this, he lost all self-esteem and only takes care of himself so he can look out for others, now he can barely look at a mirror, he still tries to help others even though anyone reading either of my two posts can tell he is in pain. i know that this may not be much different from the original post but it is information,

There is no magick solution. You can use magick WITH him alongside good practical open communication and emotional support. A healthy diet and a comfortable safe environment are also excellent aids. But I do not advise you to do magick behind his back to "help him" despite your kind intentions. When someone is damaged emotionally, they have to be taken care of on ALL levels, not just one.

If he is your friend, and he is someone you see in person, than my best advice to you is to try and get him to seek counseling or at least call a free hotline. If he isn't open to psychology, there is also the possibility of finding a spiritual leader/elder in your community that he can talk to. It seems to me that he is falling into a depression (based on the "emptiness" and "cold"). Again, I doubt it has anything to do with his magick choices. You just mentioned that he has a rough life. That is the likely culprit. Even if he does do magick that isn't always happy rainbows, you have to consider and focus on the reason for his actions not his actions. The reason is internal.

But the choice is his ultimately, and I know it is hard to see someone deteriorate before your eyes, but remember it is their choice. People don't get better unless they want to. It's a tough lesson to learn and one I learned the hard way a long time ago with someone close to me.

I've also experienced this situation many times over since then and reacted with more wisdom. It hurts to see them destroy themselves, but all you can do is reach out and be there for them. Let them know you're there for them if they need anything, all they have to do is call. Some call, some don't. Most need to come to some form of revelation/realization before they try.

Also remember that you are not their "designated hero". Be a good friend but also realize they may have other friends they feel more comfortable sharing with. If you know of such a friend, that is the person to talk to. They will be able to reach him and help him far better than you can. Another hard lesson, because everyone likes to be the hero. It's a great feeling right? It's a huge test of humility to step aside and let someone else more capable take over. But you have to weigh whether you want the person better or want to better that person.
