These spoken words remained unquestioned by most primitive people, especially if the person speaking the Spell, Hex or Curse was known to be well versed in the art of magic. If the medicine man or woman used an unknown language, the belief in the power of these words was extenuated. The practice of using a Spell or casting a Curse with a forceful display of energy was popular in medieval times. A person under a Curse or Spell was believed to be powerless over his own will, to be alive but behaving as if in a trance.
Over the centuries, Spells were created into established formulas. As they proved effective, they endured and were written down for future use. In Ancient Egypt not only were the Spells well-formulated, but the tone of voice was also prescribed along with the exacting recipe. Those versed in the art of the Occult will concede that the Power Of A Spell remains in force until such time as the Energy Of The Spell is neutralized.
An important factor in the effectiveness of a Spell is the maker's belief in the formula. Forceful Curses and Hexes have been shown to cause a great deal of difficulty for the recipient. Voodoo, practiced primarily in the Caribbean involves Hexing, Cursing, and projecting Spells. The Curse or Spell is phrased in an established ritualistic format, delivered with strong emotion and exaggerated body motions, and the Witch Doctor's belief fuels the remainder for the desired effect.
Similar to a Spell, a Hex can be a powerful Negative thought expressed with a strong emotional outburst. The more energy used in the Ritual Of Hexing, the more effective the Hex will be upon the recipient. It is the subconscious mind convinced that something will happen, generates fearful emotions that contribute to manifesting the negative Curse, Spell or Hex
