I got an interesting question from a reader name Dan and while I’d love to be able to give Dan some great answers and help with his questions, I don’t know that I really have an answer for him! So check out his question and my response and feel free to comment with your thoughts as well if you think you might have more help to offer! I know some of you out there may be more versed in the use of bones and other animal material in spell work and can give some possible answers to Dan’s question.
A few years ago, I was in the process of moving to a new location to accept a job. Some time during this period, I found a scattering of bones on the first landing of the outdoor steps that led to my door (someone had to climb a flight of stairs and deliberately place them). I know two or three women who are involved to some degree with witchcraft. The bones were pork bones, as I found the wrapper discarded on the driveway, and I could not tell if there was some specific arrangement of the bones. Does this sound like a spell or curse of any kind that you are aware of?
I wish I could give you some specific answers about your situation and what you found on your doorsteps, but not knowing more about the way they were laid out it’s hard to say. Bones are used in different magickal practices for different things. Some use them for revenge spells, others specifically for necromancy to call on certain spirits to come and cause trouble to an individual. Your specific situation, not knowing more about the state of the bones at the time you found then and then any issues or problems that you might have had that you think could have been connected to this makes it hard to say what it could have been. Do people do thinks like place bones in someone’s path (like in the doorways or on a front door step) in order to have some magickal effect? Sure. But it’s hard to say if that was the intention or purpose of your specific situation.
Maybe we can get some help from another reader to help. 🙂
