What is a Jinx?
A jinx is a type of malevolent magic used to cause the target bad luck, misfortune, and inconvenience. It’s usually a light spell that doesn’t last long. Jinxes are mean, evil, and work with negative energies, but they only do minor damage. Such misfortune spells are usually harmless to the target. A jinx can be said to be a milder variant of a hex.
A jinx is usually an act of revenge that occurs when someone feels they have been mistreated and wants to make themselves feel better by sending out a jinx. The sender will likely never know how and when the jinx worked, but the mere thought that bad luck befell the victim gives the sender great satisfaction. Jinxes don’t have a long or permanent effect and resolve on their own.
Many things go wrong for the victim, plans don’t work out, and they are fighting against many difficulties simultaneously. A jinx prevents the victim from doing chores or things that they usually can do, causing severe bad luck. While jinxes are classified as curses, it is not something that negatively impacts the victim’s life over the long term.
That’s why you don’t have to dissolve a Jinx; it resolves itself. However, it makes sense to create a Jinx protection so that a Jinx cannot even work if an evil person sends it.
How to Protect yourself from a Jinx
To protect yourself from jinxes, create a small charm called a Mojo bag. It is very effective and easy to create. A mojo bag is a small pouch made with scraps of fabric, and it will be filled with herbs, stones, and other items, that have strong protective properties to ward off jinxes. You can carry the mojo bag with you or hide it at home.
For a protection mojo bag, you will use protective herbs. Anise seeds are small five-pointed pentagrams that surround you with protective energy. Basil leaves to drive off evil and jinxes. Bay leaves protect you from enemies. Lemongrass draws protection from evil and jinxes and brings good luck at the same time. Mint protects and reverses jinxes and curses. Sage wards off the evil eye.
Ingredients for the Jinx Protection Spell
You will need any combination of the following for your pouch.
- Anise seeds
- Basil leaves
- Bay leaves
What You’ll Need to Do
Take your pouch and fill it with these herbs. Sew it up, and then keep it on your person at all times to protect you from jinxes.
What are Evil Eye, Hex, Jinx, and Curses?
Upon hearing the terms jinx, hex, evil eye, or curse, many people already have their own thoughts about what these terms mean. But to your surprise, these terms may not have the evil connotation you may associate them with. All of them are varying degrees of black magic, which should be avoided at all costs since these spells can backfire quickly.
According to the Oxford Dictionary, a jinx is used to bring someone bad luck in a mysterious way. The jinx is the mildest form of curse, has no harmful effects on the victim, and does not last long. Basically, what a victim wants to happen is usually spoiled due to a jinx. Jinxes do not cause severe pain or suffering like curses and the Evil Eye.
A hex, on the other, is a word or phrase that has a magic power to harm somebody, but it is also used for a person who practices witchcraft. A hex is neutral as it can be used for the bad just as much as for the good when it comes to spell casting. A hex is stronger than a jinx but milder than a curse.
The evil eye is commonly referred to as being able to cause misfortune in one’s life, like injury, poverty, and illness. The evil eye can be long-lasting and not easy to diagnose.
A curse is defined as a type of supernatural power with the purpose of causing pain or suffering. A curse can be defined as evil in nature since one person wants to inflict pain upon another, whereas a hex is not necessarily evil in nature.
