Product Description

Product Description

Hexes, curses and other unsavory notions. Most magical practitioners won't even discuss them. Why? Because they'd much rather find a positive solution that benefits all concerned. And, there's nothing wrong with that.

Occasionally, though, our problems are such that nothing in the positive solution arena will handle them. It's time to make a decision to stand tough, be strong, and take definitive action to defend ourselves. And, if you're ready to do that — if you're ready to own that action and take responsibility for it — then Utterly Wicked is the book for you!

Jam-packed with more than one hundred rituals, incantations, hexes and curses, this book is the quintessential primer for learning all those magical tricks that no one wants to talk about. Do you know the proper way to enter a cemetery? Utterly Wicked tells you how, as well as the proper methods for collecting and using graveyard dirt. Explore the little known secrets of the 11" fashion doll and see why it's become such a valuable magical tool. Then learn to prepare Hot Foot Powder, Four Thieves Vinegar, Goofer Dust, and other magical components specifically designed to obliterate your toughest problems. Most important, though, you'll also find the tools to protect yourself, your family, and your home from ever being bothered with these sorts of difficulties again. A must have for any Witch’s bookshelf!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a funny book that has inspired me to fight back should I need to! Spent so long trying to see the good in everyone and now I see it's OK to defend me and mine. I was a good witch til I read this and now I'm an even better one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Curses, Hexes and other Good Stuff!!! 29 Feb 2008
Format:Paperback
I read through this book rather quickly, as it is not all that difficult to read or understand. That is one of the signatures of works by Dorothy Morrison, easy to read and understand.

I also found myself nodding my head as I went through her basics for what she offers in this book. Yes, there is an ethics discussion.

And if you are under the impression that Ms. Morrison should have gone further into ethics, this book is not for you. Personally, I feel if you need a dose of ethics with a witch's book on hexes and curses, then you should do as she suggests in the opening of the book: Close this book now and put it back on the shelf.

Ms. Morrison does an excellent job covering the basics of our practices involving curses and hexes. And while she does explain that we should use this as last resort, she also points out that many times we have good reason and we should not ignore it.

So, moving on, the book is typical Morrison material. We are presented with the hows, the whys, and all the recipes to do. I love the "11" doll" material. Damn, I never thought of that! I also notice that much of the material is adapted from hoodoo basics and this is good. Hoodoo is a working tradition; working because it is effective. To adapt this material from a working practice is smarter than trying to make up your own. Why waste the efforts to create something that is already in place. I also think this is a great education in the workings of our native magical traditions.

This book contains the now famous "Swifting of Energy" working that everyone wants. It's a great spellworking! Just right for the beginner or the experienced witch.

There is a section on reversing hexes and curses as well.

I love this book, funny and easy to read. I agree there are some things you can't let go without a little revenge.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad. 14 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book did focus a bit on work relationships but there was a good few suggestions on other topics. Some of the ingredients suggested were hard to find, or maybe it was just me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Might work but no style 3 April 2010
By Ellie P
Format:Paperback
I didn't like the book at all not because of the curses ans hexes etc. That is the point of the book. But from the language and tone Ms Morrisson uses. Talking all the time about 'all that crap' having a 'hissy fit' and the like made it awkward to read. I felt that it would have been much improved by a more cultured use of the English language, of which I am sure Ms Morrison is very capable.
Also I do not understand why this book is described as honest by so many. If it were as honest as all that, then there would be no notion of curses etc only being used only as a defense by good people who have had enough. If this were so then Swifting the Energy, which shows how curses etc can be turned for good use, would be all you need. Honestly this is a book for people who want to go the way of original witchcraft and curse when they feel like it. There is a lot of Hoodoo in there and a little Yoruba quite a bit of Wicca. I feel that a lot of the curses would probably work but I am not going to try them. Good book if you want to curse, or steal someone elses partner.
