Are Curses Real? I get a lot of questions about curses, so I decided to give you the lowdown on them once and for all. The curse questions I get fall into three categories:
- A “psychic” has told someone they are cursed
- A person believes they are cursed because of a recent run of bad luck
- A person feels they have been cursed by someone who hates their guts
Are Curses Real?
Nope. That’s the easy, short answer.
The longer answer is a little more complicated, but sooooo worth understanding.
Let’s look at each of the “curse” situations:
A “Psychic” Told Me I’m Cursed
Unfortunately, there are a lot of scams run by fake “psychics” out there that people fall prey to.
If you’ve become a victim to one of these scams, don’t beat yourself up. These scammers are masters of tricking intelligent, hard-working people out of their hard earned cash.
You may have gotten a free reading from a “psychic” or even paid for a reading, only to be told that you or your family have a “black cloud” around you.
Dude, you don’t.
These so-called psychics give you a vague reading that could apply to most anyone.
They might suggest that several bad things have happened to you lately. You think, Eeks the psychic must be right! My fridge did break… and my muffler fell off!
Since everyone has bad stuff happen to them, phony psychics can easily make it all sound plausible.
The “psychic” follows up this bad news with a glimmer of hope.
They tell you that they can magically lift the curse off of you and/or your family – for a price, of course.
They may even hit you up several times, saying that the curse is much more serious than first expected, and they will need more money to continue to lift it from you.
This is how innocent people get ripped off for thousands of dollars.
Are curses real? Well, if anyone tells you that you are cursed, expect them to ask for money next.
Don’t give it to them.
All the fake psychic is trying to do is scare you.
The fear of being cursed and a fake psychic’s talent at spinning lies is a recipe for disaster.
But stand strong knowing that curses aren’t real.
You Think You’re Cursed because of Bad Luck
Sometimes, the poo seems to hit the fan all at once. That’s not a curse, it’s life, and it happens to all of us.
You have a fight with your bestie, lose your job, and get an audit notice… all within a 12 month period.
You are ready to scream expletives and scream stop the insanity at the top of your lungs.
All this awful stuff happens and you start to believe you must be cursed. What else could it be?
In this situation, sure, it might feel like you are cursed. But you aren’t.
Bad things happen…and sometimes they happen all at once.
One explanation for this is that you agreed to have certain experiences before you incarnated into this life.
Maybe you wanted to further your spiritual development and, while you were in the yummy energy of the Other Side, it was like, Oh, no problemo! I can handle all of it! An IRS audit? Sure, I’ll learn TONS! Breaking my ankle and ruining my dream of being on Dancing with the Stars? Bring it on, Universe!
It’s all lollipops and rainbows before we’ve incarnated. Then we get here and it’s like, I signed up for this!
Remember, we are, more than anything else, spiritual beings. Not cursed humans :)
You Think Someone Has Put a Curse on You
This happens in the movies and can be a super scary thought.
If someone has it “out for you” because of something you did or didn’t do to them, they may send you negative thoughts and wish for bad things to happen to you.
But that doesn’t mean that you are cursed.
Lean in and listen carefully. There’s no such thing as a curse. They don’t exist.
Unless you believe that they do.
Let me explain.
According to the Law of Attraction, what you think about and believe in is what you attract.
If you focus on the fact that your sister-in-law has cursed you, you will attract the negativity you are expecting.
And the more negative stuff that happens to you, the more your attention will be drawn to the “curse,” and so the cycle continues, getting stronger because your belief is stronger.
For example, I have a grandma whose appliances are constantly breaking down. One day she said, I must be cursed! Are curses real? No grandma, they aren’t.
But she has such a strong belief about appliances breaking that as soon as one gets fixed, another one breaks. Every time!
So, are curses real?
No, absolutely not! Unless you buy into the fact that they are.
This makes you a victim and that’s lousy. And it is totally impossible for someone to put a “whammy” on you.
It’s not how the Laws of the Universe work.
So basically, if you believe you are cursed, the person who is cursing you is YOU!
You are the only one who is in control of your reality. Stop thinking about appliances breaking and start thinking about an afternoon at the beach… or having lunch with Taylor Swift… or anything that you think is awesome!
Are Curses Real? Takeaways
You can attract negativity, but curses aren’t real.
You attract what you believe to be true and what you think about.
If you believe with your whole heart that you are cursed, start surrounding yourself with positive people and activities instead. Start believing in some awesome big, huge dream!
Focus on good things. Write out a gratitude list. Watch something funny on TV.
When you catch yourself thinking about the string of bad luck you’ve been having, stop and move your thoughts back to gratitude.

Your sister-in-law can’t curse you.
Even if someone has bad thoughts of you and wishes you harm, they can’t curse you. All that does is create bad karma for them.
The only person who can do that is you…by believing in them and attracting negativity into your life.
