Black Magic - Does It Really Work and How to Remove It ?

Is black magic a reality? Yes, and maybe no. Sadhguru tells us about the black magic that others can do to us, and also the black magic we do to ourselves. He looks at a simple way through which someone can remove such influences.
how to get rid of black magic

Question: Can energy be used in a negative manner, for example to do black magic?

Sadhguru: You need to understand that energy is just energy; it is neither divine nor is it evil. You can make anything – a god or a devil – out of it. It is like electricity. Is electricity the divine or the devil? When it is lighting your house, it is the divine. If it becomes an electric chair, it is the devil. It just depends on who is operating it at that moment.

Actually, five thousand years ago, Arjuna asked Krishna the same question, “If you are saying everything is the same energy and everything is divine if it is the same godhood which exists in Duryodhana, why is he functioning like this?” Krishna laughed, because after all the teaching, Arjuna was still coming back to this simple, basic, childlike question. Krishna replied, “God is Nirguna, the divine is Nirguna. He has no attributes of his own.” That means it is just pure energy. You can make anything out of it. The tiger that comes to eat you also has the same energy, a god that may come and save you also has the same energy. They are just functioning in different ways. When you are driving your car, is it good or bad? It can make your life or take your life any moment, isn't it?

So can people do black magic? Definitely they can. If positive uses are there, negative uses are also there. One Veda, the Atharvana Veda is dedicated to the use of energies for both positive and negative. But what I have seen is, most of the time these things are psychological. A little bit of it may be there, but the rest of it is your own mind driving you crazy. If I want to drive you crazy, I do not have to do any actual black magic. Tomorrow morning when you come out of your house, suppose there is a skull and some blood all over the place, once you see this, that’s it! You will become ill, your business will go bad, everything negative will happen to you because of a certain fear grips you. No black magic has been done. Just certain symbols which indicate that this seems to be some kind of black magic will destroy your mind. So most of the time, it is just psychological. Even if black magic is done to you, only ten percent may be the real thing. The rest of it is you destroying yourself. That is why it comes with symbolism. They understood the impact of your own psychology on you. Once that symbolism is created, you just destroy yourself.

How to Protect oneself from Black Magic?

But yes, there is a science where one can use their energies negatively to cause harm to somebody else. What is the protection? One thing is, if you are on spiritual sadhana, you need not bother about all those things. You need not even think about those things. Another way is, you can wear certain protections like a rudraksha , which is like protection against any kind of negativity. But you need not worry about such things. Just keep your focus in life and keep going. If you are in sadhana, you just don’t bother; it will be taken care of.

The Dhyanalinga

Dhyanalinga - In Search of Shiva

If you have been under such influences, you can come and sit in the sphere of the Dhyanalinga, because there are certain dimensions to the Dhyanalinga which nullify all this. If you fear that something like this has been done to you, sit there for just one day and go. It gets taken care of. But it is better that you not pay attention to those things because your mind does more “black magic” to you than anybody else can.

There are the Vanashree and Patanjali shrines at the entrance of the  Dhyanalinga. They are in the space of a fifteen-degree angle from the Dhyanalinga. That’s why they are located at that point. Otherwise, architecturally, I would have liked to locate them much closer. Generally, people who are possessed by some spirits or who are impacted by the occult and such problems are asked to sit either in a forward fifteen-degree angle or a rear side fifteen-degree angle, depending upon the type of problem that they have.

That space has been specially created like that so that people can make use of it. Whether you’re aware of it or not, the negative use of energy like black magic and others is there. The fifteen-degree angle is where the doorway is. Whether you know it or not, everyone who enters just drops the negative influences they are carrying. There have been thousands who have dropped such influences. That’s why people who have been to the Dhyanalinga  find that suddenly life has changed for them. This is because the negative impacts on their life have dropped.

When we say ‘negative impacts’, it’s not necessarily in terms of somebody doing something negative to you. In so many ways, you could have just taken in some negativity. See, it’s not necessary that somebody should poison fruit and give it to you. The fruit might have some natural poison in it, which enters my body when I eat it. Similarly, the negative aspects of life can enter you in so many ways. It is not necessary that somebody is sitting there and plotting against you. So the entrance of the Dhyanalinga, the first fifteen-degree angle, is created for this purpose, and before people seek anything else, these things are just taken care of. They just have to walk in that space, about sixty or seventy feet, and that by itself takes care of these negativities.

hey im white i think im getting stopped from *stopping* the ~persian immigrant invasion by building a robot building virus on my computer. my computer turns off, and i lost an important file i only have built again. (i luckily backed it up.) but i feel all is hopeless and australia,america, europe the world will succumb to africans and ~iranies, and all the white women will be enslaved for sex with dark men against their will. im fully against it, but i dont have a chance, because i cant piss in the toilet and im losing files on the computer, and i think hes invisible and could kill me when i shower easily, and all hope is lost for the european man.
Is it common for the black magic doer to hold back and not show you the full extent of their evil, leaving you in fear and hopelessness - but also the gaul to maybe test your chances again?

You mention that Dhyanalinga is not in space and time thus you don't need to physically be there to make use of the benefits and well being it provides. I cannot come to India for quite some time. How would I become more connected to the Dhyanalinga.

Thanks. I always wanted to know if Black magic is true and if it really can harm people. This clear things up for me.

Rakesh, I'm not going to explain all ur questions, but just ignore the black magic and consider the action of selfishness or a harmful action of a stronger person over a weaker person. Is that dharma, no, but it still is part of the cosmic drama. Relate this to blackmagic. And every force rebounds back to d sender multifolds. Thats a cosmic will too.
Doesn't a robber steal money inspite of knowing he ll suffer the consequence.
All this drama is for the mind. One who looks beyond the mind doesn't do such stuff nor does he suffer the action of others. One who surrenders to the stillness doesn't have to worry about cost.

Lets relate ur question to a movie a director makes. The actor plays the role as depicted by d director. He suffers as d character, he laughs, fights, enjoys romances and acts many emotions. The movie ends the way d director wishes. Not all stories are happy nor all of then sad. Does that mean d director who makes n directs d story is blamed. Its is just a drama. He who creates the action is d one who is d actor himself. When u see d drama as part of u, u feel it as suffering, but if u learn to detach and watch it as just a drama, nothing is suffering,
That's the way of spiritual awakening

This is very true a lot of people go crazy over this. God or the source of creation being Nirguna is not what people don't understand in general. Religious people speak of God as someone sitting up there watching us all the time. If the all powerful is watching what is happening in planet earth all the time then it can really be not God. How can something watch all the injustice silently? It is just that the state of Consciousness is Nirguna and it is up to us to invoke it positively.
But having said that it would be great if Sadhguru can explain about Avatars and Amsas. What makes them happen in planet earth?

Well defined Sadhguruji ! The realization that we are a energy house & just as we use any power source in the material world, we can also be directed in the way in which the energy is used is possibly the most basic realization that is required for attempting any spiritual sadhana! The reality which I came to understand reading your explanation is that , there is nothing positive or negative , these attributes are given to the result depending merely on the material result that the particular action brings about to us. Hence if we are, as Lord Krishna in the Geetha, the divine song, says, detached from any action, the result of the action would not leave either negative or positive impact on both our mental and material status. This need to detach ourselves from the action would ensure complete dedication merely to the action bringing about a complete application our potential. Hope tha we here more on how to bring about this 'detachment' in us from Guruji

I am interested in knowing more about the 'dimensions' of the Dhyanalinga talked about in this article. What property about it actually nullifies such negative energies?

wow. an indepth explanation about black magic. this may not be able to explain everything we hear about black magic entirely but sadhguru has given a concrete example by relating it our lives. he is right, the energy that we have is just energy and this depends on how we manipulate it.
