Eighteen Years of Being a Victim of Witchcraft

Salem Witchcraft Trials

Close encounter with the devil

This is a grim situation my brother is fighting nowadays. It began eighteen years ago by trusting other people whom he befriended in the city of Manila here in the Philippines. Fernando, my brother is a victim of barang, a Filipino kind of witchcraft which is rampant in the country. It is derived from the western occultism and dark art of witchcraft that cause too many havocs in so many innocent lives.

My brother finished his college in the early 90s as a mechanic. Eventually, after graduation he was hired by a big multi-national company owned by a well-known personality in the country as a chief mechanic. His role ranged from supervising his people and assembling heavy trucks used for commercial purposes.

Being new in Manila brought him to a boarding house in one of the main cities of the metropolis. The family, composed of the couple, son and daughter, parents in law, lured my brother to live with them without knowing their ulterior motive to enslave him to a kind of witchcraft called barang.

At first, they treated my brother as their eldest son. In return, he gave them all the gratitude he could offer even his weekly wages to support his newfound family in the city. He even brought his landlady to our home in the province. I was irked and disgusted because rumors spread the she is my brother’s woman. She is old enough to be his mother. I asked his landlady why he accompanied my brother when in fact she is a married woman.

The frank words that I uttered to the woman triggered her to abuse the kindness of my brother. My family and I didn’t know that she knows how to use barang or witchcraft.

A year later, we heard the news about the freak accident that my brother encountered while repairing a television set at the woman’s house. It’s raining outside when he adjusted the antennae at the rooftop of the house. The woman’s son was watching my brother when he accidentally grab the main line of electricity. The kid ran for help while he fought for life by resisting the effects of the 3,000 volts of electricity that left him with wounded right hand. His pulse exploded and also his tummy and the back of his upper legs. My mother was very angry at that time. She immediately went to the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) while my father was left in the province to tend the farm. The woman claimed that my mother didn’t spent a single cent for the expenses of my brother opposite to the truth that my mother exhausted our resources for the hospital bills. She didn’t even said sorry for what happened to my brother. Even his husband didn’t clear and explained what happened to my brother at their house.

In 1998, when my father was hospitalized at the PGH for lung cancer, the couple who was summoned by my elder sister visited the deathbed off my father. They said that they’re not collecting the earnings of my brother whom we thought that he’s in some kind of limbo because he didn’t show any sad emotion like crying when my father died.

A year later, I graduated from culinary school. I was ready to go to Manila for a further training at the seaman’s center and complete my requirements to work overseas on board a merchant vessel. I borrowed P10,000.00 (ten thousand pesos) from my brother. Later, I learnt that it was borrowed by the older woman from a loan shark which she later claimed that it was her own money contrary to the truth that it was my brother’s earnings.

The dark side of barang

This kind of witchcraft is killing my brother slowly. He is experiencing memory lapses and the only thing that he wanted to do everyday is his job as chief mechanic. He don’t even have a clear account of the death of my father in 1998. He don’t even remember that he wore a pair of eyeglasses when he attended the burial. He looked like a 50-year old man when he escaped from the room that his landlady-witch used for her dark and deadly schemes.

Just recently, he quarreled with the old woman when he realized that he acquired bruises and insect bites without actually knowing its cause. He said he see the woman praying whenever he’s awake at night. With all the candles, surrounding his picture and a voodoo doll full of insects (ants, usually) and cement on its head, and small plastic basin full of water, he ignored the eerie environment because someone is always whispering in his ears just to concentrate on his work. He also retold the incident that the old woman gave her a cat as pet. The unusual thing about the cat was it was chained by the woman. The woman said he should take care of it; that he did.

Luckily, another woman became his ‘guardian angel’. Not far from his work, he met Melda while he was walking going to his work. Their eyes met and the thing that caught her attention was my brother’s way of dressing (closed-neck flannel long sleeve shirts and a bull cap. Melda owns a store which my brother frequently visit. She noticed unusual markings on my brothers arms and face. She told him that he should wear appropriate clothes for the tropical climate of our country. She was horrified of what he saw in my brother’s arms. Aside from insect bites on his arms, she saw bites all over his body. My brother said it didn’t itch a bit, so she didn’t have to worry.

When the old woman knew that he was befriending another woman, she got angry and nearly cut my brother’s right finger. Then the rashes and insect bites began itching. She took care of my brother for nearly a year until the woman discovered. My brother said that he never use the old woman, sexually. Although, he had memory lapses, he claimed that the only thing clear to him is his work.

Scroll to Continue

When my brother decided to seek my sister’s help the first day of the new year, the old woman insisted to accompany him. But my brother declined instead he ask the help of Melda to accompany him to my sister’s house. There, my sister sought the help of our cousin who knows how to oppose the effects of the witchcraft.

The next events when retold to me by my brother seemed bizarre to me. The pieces of hardened cement on his head, the white sticky sap of jackfruit on his left arm and many insects (ants, etc.) form his right arm awakened me to the reality that evil deeds are spreading in the world right now!

Aftermath of the curse

My sister immediately sought the help of the local officials at my brother’s place. With the help of Melda, they asked bystanders the whereabouts of the boarding house. The barangay tanod or local guards led them to the abode of the old woman. The door was slightly open when they call the woman. My sister was aghast when they found out in action what the woman was doing. She’s into an actual ritual of barang with all the candles around the picture of my brother! She didn’t recognize my sister but when she saw Melda, the old woman went berserk shouting at the top of her voice that it was Melda’s fault why my brother left her.

At present, my brother’s belongings: clothes, appliances and mechanic’s tools were brought to the barangay hall for clearance. The lupons or elder local judges of the barangay heard the complaints of my sister against the older woman who used to be my brother’s landlady. I said to them to file for theft because the woman didn’t want to return my brother’s ATM (automated teller machine) card. All my brother’s earnings went to the woman and her family. Even, we cannot accuse her and put her to jail because of witchcraft, at least the case for theft or robbery can put her inside the cell.

Furthermore, the old woman was ranting my name because she claimed that she helped me with my trainings before going overseas which was a blatant lie. How can she have money without having a job? The worst of it, I also experienced the bizarre consequences that my brother felt. When he came home three days after the new year here in the province, we went to the beach for two days to soak our bodies in the seawater. But you will not believe what I’ve found when I felt an itchiness on the left side of my neck: it’s an ant!. There’s no ant crawling on the beach. Where did it came from?

Fighting the ‘barang’

Although, I am skeptic at first, we can fight evil people around us. I we read the Holy Bible, there are many passages in the Books of Old and New Testaments warning us against the minions of the Devil or Satan. Our belief for the Creator of God Almighty should be strengthened, because materialism is apparent nowadays. Most of us are lured into the worldly gains that we often forget that these blessings comes from the Lord.

These evil people can never destroy our physical and spiritual bodies if we surrender ourselves to God. I admit that I was blinded by the material world. If we are strong in our belief to the Creator, evil deeds will never defeat us.

I'm a victim of witchcraft because I'm possessed by Saudi Arabia's government and I lost my willpower to leave the country, they are literally enslaving me by casting spells on me every day.

newlife1010 on July 20, 2015:

I also found dvds in the my ex fiances granparents house " keeping up appearances act of hinduism does that have something to do with witch craft?

newlife1010 on July 17, 2015:

I'm am recently covering from witchcraft myself. I was suffering from witchcraft, black magic, and I believe some kind of demonic poisoning. It was literally killing me. I struggled everyday for a year straight. Through studying the bible, and thechurch doing an exorcism on me I finally got past it. I had to get away from the person doing it to me. I have learned a lot from it though. reading the bible gave me a lot of understanding. "Jesus cures us faster" I also researched satanic poisoning. "If you are fed ash of the dead". From what I experienced ashes cause a burning sensation I also kept noticing there was dirt that kept getting all over my hands. It's important to clean and sanitize everything. Also wash your hands constantly. Black magic tingles and demonic poisoning causes severe convulsions and my body was being manipulated like a puppet. Drink a lot of water and a spoonful of apple cidar vinegar a day, That's exactly what I looked like. I was suffering from so many things at once and GOD saved my life. If you are a victim of these things it is so important to put ALL your trust in God. Focus on the positive. One negative thought leads to another and before you know it, it will bring you down. They can also pull you away from God by putting worry, doubt, or fear in your heart. Negative thinking will bring negative energy. When we put all our trust in God and also through prayer we don'thave to be afraid, we don't have to worry. You also have to be careful of the things you say out loud, this is very important. Don't say I'mlosing my mind I'm losing my mind, because then you can curse yourself. I witnessed that with my ex. He kept singing this song saying I can't control my fingers, I can't control my mind then he wondered why his fingers started going crazy, and hi mind was going in circles. Witchraft causes rashes and saying thins in 3's. "once is enough, twice you're pushing it, three times you're screwing yourself".I couldn't figure out why we were doing and saying things in three's. Now I know there was a little coffee filter on the floor with it looked like coffee grounds and teeth. witch craft also causes confusing. I hope this helps anyone who is suffering from these things and help you with the warning signs. The only cure is excepting Jesus Christ as your savior, studying the bible, and living your life by his word.

Dgette on June 08, 2015:

Barang is a Vodoo and a Witchcrafts are for witches... its different... in your story you will ruin innocent witches who belongs from old pagans who loves nature and different Gods and Goddessess... Sometimes Vodoo and Witches are opposing and casting spells against each other... Not all Withces are evil. The origin of witches are good people and loving by nature, they were only demonized since Christianity came along and take over the history of religions and they play like dominant. This is why Islam play along with Christians as great enemy...

LG on May 20, 2015:

Barang normally exists,if a victim did wrong to this person or take revenge after they suffered from bad judgement or maliciously intended,basically the black magic was really evil intent and abuse by the evil doer.My cousin was a victim of Barang and am not sure,if she was cure or still in the process of fighting the person who attacked my cousin.there is some oracion or a strong latin prayer to contradict this black magic.or if your spirit is really weak,the evil is extremely strong and continously conduct black magic and chanting dark passage or asking the devil or manevolent spirit to aid the attacker to win the evilness.My suggestion,a fervent prayer without doubt from God's Power and never take a nap on Tuesday and Friday,even at the hours of Saturn,because the black magic is very powerful during this days and hours.Fasting and Rosary prayers before sunrise and before the Guardian Angel Michael and Pray the Psalm 91 with red candle consecrated with Fiery Wall of Protection,repeat this every hours of Mars and Sunday,because Sunday was associated to the Chief of all the Arcangels.

ama1120 on December 30, 2014:

Hi, i just came across your post as I am looking for some cure for my partner- which we believed that he is a victim of barang. We have a strong faith in God but personally, his faith was very weak due to so many problems that dragged him down and he is physically, mentally and emotinally ill. Maybe someone can help us for healing and contradict whatever barang or kulam he is experiencing. We are really in dire need of your help as we are running out of time. Thank you in advance for whatever help or referral you can give us.

Raven on December 27, 2014:

It's called Black Magick. I'm a witch. Not all witches do this kind of magick and most specially we are not agents of Satan or anything. It's a common misconception of us. The pentagram symbolizes earth, fire, water, air and spirit. Only a few witches use black magick.

Blessed79 on February 01, 2014:

Hello, I to am a victim of generational witchcraft. I have been under the curse of witchcraft unknowingly for years. I came to the light of this evil after my spirit died. I praise God today though Jesus Christ that I am born again and washed in His blood. Even after finding out the truth, I still get harassed into this evil. I have done almost everything to stop these witches from harassing me. It seems the more they know about me the more intrigued they become with me. It is very uncomfortable at times and I hate what it has done in my life. I don't believe this practice is good for anybody and a person who uses witchcraft to hurt people has made a conscious decision to do so and should suffer legally. I praise God because I have the victory in, through and by Jesus Christ. If one is a believer in Jesus Christ and has given their life to Him, there should be no compromising. If we do compromise we are claiming that salvation is ineffective. I pray constantly that witchcraft will ceased to exist, especially in my life and in the lives of those I love.

sara on November 28, 2013:

Where is the Philippine people who posted here? I hope they are still alive! I read in an earlier entry that the Philippines is full of WITCHCRAFT. God HATES witchcraft. I am wondering in light of my recent experience of obtaining a revelation of things to come if the terrible typhoon was a spiritual Judgement from God's Throne in that regard. I will tell you something odd - 2 days before the typhoon I could not sleep here in Canada. I felt FEAR. I went to my mother's room and told her I felt afraid but I didn't know what for. She said to pray and find out what was the reason for the fear. I prayed and through gift of Knowledge from the Holy Spirit found it was not me, or for my children and family. But the Holy Spirit told me directly - it was the fear and dread of JUDGEMENTS to come. My deepest soul felt it. I then was better but puzzled and went to bed. I then saw, 2 days later, the great calamity that befell the Philippines. Later I beheld in TV the great calamity that befell the USA and the great terrible cluster of unprecedented tornadoes. I knew it was Judgement. God Judges Nations. He loves all human beings but some evils and wickedness He can no longer bear and it invites Judgement. Witchcraft is one of the deadliest sins He detests. Now there is another Great Judgement to come. I don't know exactly yet what it is - but it will surely come to another country or possibly more all at the same time. Obey God and reject any and all witchcraft whether, seemingly good or bad. Follow and obey only Jesus as your Lord and Savior, for there is no other way, for He is the WAY, TRUTH and LIFE.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on March 23, 2013:

@Jim Kobe's: Confusing as it may seemed but it did happened.

Fuerzadivino on March 06, 2013:

The case of your brother is in the area of esoteric, in order to fight this kind of hex you have knowledgeable or even in expert also in esoteric. Just I remind you even the devil can pray also to God and asks for power.

Fuerzadivino on March 06, 2013:

I think the best is to consult reliable albularyo at your nearest town. I'm also practitioner of filipino esoteric under lineage of God the Father, I have already experienced healing and exorcising bewitched person may be I could extend some help for your beloved brother.

Jim Kobe's on February 16, 2013:

It's impossible for this to happen as witchcraft is my real!! Sorry to break the bad news. By the way that story was very confusing!!

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on February 12, 2013:

@Daisy: Haven't you read what whitelilyfield had just written here. Prior to your remarks, you can see what her testimony is all about. You should believe in God through Jesus, nobody else.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on February 12, 2013:

@whitelilyfield: Thank you for an inspiring story about you and Bry. I am more stronger now as my belief in Jesus turned into full circle. Nobody can take that away from me, the faith that continuously grow everyday.

God's Word is absolute and so His promise that He will come again to judge us all, according to what we've done here on Earth.

Daisy on February 09, 2013:

I needed help in this area & I found a great energy worker who helped me. I was feeling extremely tired all the time, and felt like i was getting a cold almost every week. I would sleep enough & wake up and feel so exhausted. When i was at work i thought i could pass out from this tiredness in my body all day long. I found out my neighbor was doing witchcraft on me.I was desperate to get it off of me because i just could not function normaly. I found this website that offered black magic removal at an extremely affordable price so i decided to try it. I was expecting a three day delay for my treatment because of other previous customers. To my amazement, the day after i paid for the service i found myself feeling better, my energy was getting up & up and felt back to normal that same day! He transmutes the negative energy to positive and it really works! Plus you are protected from future things like this from harming you. Check out the website & tell him Daisy sent you :)

whitelilyfield on September 27, 2012:

Hi this post is for Bry. I know that this is an old post, but I feel like I'm being led by the Holy Spirit to tell you something. First, I appreciate your calling to "fight" these witchcraft spirits. I too, have been a victim of witchcraft and I have been actually battling a chronic illness because of these attacks... But I feel like I need to tell you something important: There are ways that Christians are supposed to fight. First, one of the most effective things you can do is forgive that person. I realize that it's difficult to forgive when there is so much anger to hold onto and righteous anger at that. It's okay to be angry, but I don't believe that God wants us to "stay" in that place. If we can extend the grace that has been given to us and realize that God LOVES ALL OF US and that Jesus came to pay the price for ALL OF US, not just some of us, then we start to look at this situation through God's eyes, not our own. And if we are after God's heart (because God judges the heart) then I believe that we can approach our enemies with kindness and love. Forgiveness is a very powerful tool.

The other way to "fight" demonic witchcraft spirits is to do what Jesus has commanded us to do: Cast them out. Make them leave in HIS name and in HIS name only. He gives us authority and power in his name.

"For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline." -2 Timothy 1:7- Remind the devil and these demons WHO YOU ARE in Jesus and they will flee from you. If you walk in light and not in darkness and remind them that you are a child of the light, they hate the light and will leave. When we KNOW our identity in Christ, we can trample over serpents' heads.

So you can verbally outloud or inside your head say "In the name of Jesus I command all spirits of witchcraft and witchcraft curses to leave me now and I cast you into isolation." If you know specifically what the curse is or what spirits you are dealing with, you can say the name and cast them out. You can also say something like "I do not receive any witchcraft prayers or curses and I cut them off in the name of Jesus and return them back to the demon sender in the name of Jesus."

Also, pray for this person, if led by the Holy Spirit to do so. Ask for God to break the yoke in their lives that they may see the truth and for Jesus to show them who He is and how much He loves them. We conquer evil with LOVE.

I'm not saying that you won't have any more problems or that the demons won't return. But just remember if they do, YOU HAVE the power and authority that has been given to you by Jesus Christ to OVERCOME them and God is trying to show you something.

Also, I feel like God sometimes has us go through situations like this, because He wishes to teach us something. Did you ever think that His plan for your life is so much greater than you can imagine? The fact that you KNOW that this is witchcraft is an amazing gift. God let you see what is going on...that is a gift! :0) Maybe you are a discerning person who can see into the spiritual realm? There are gift of the Holy Spirit and discernment (being able to tell the difference between good and bad spirits) is a gift. Maybe God is calling upon you to use that gift for His kingdom. Only you can answer that. -Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you- 1 Peter 4:12-

Bry, I will pray for you now: Dear Jesus, I come to you now and in the name of Jesus I ask for all witchcraft assignments to cease now, in the name of Jesus I ask for all demonic assignments to leave Bry right now in the name of Jesus! Be gone in the name of Jesus! I cast you into isolation right now in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth! I ask for your peace, Holy Father to envelope Bry and for your light to shine so bright that the darkness will flee. I pray for the protection of Bry, that you will send your warring angels from the heavens to surround and protect her and to fight the battles she cannot see. Thank you dear Jesus, amen.

Blessings to you Bry...I hope you come back to this page. :0)

@jasmin: Pray and do the tips that you can find above shared by readers. And always believe in God.

jasmin on September 25, 2012:

i need your help guys...sino ba ang pwede nyong irecommend na makakapag pagaling sa kulam....yung brother ko kasi kinukulam eh...

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on September 24, 2012:

@Mark: Thank you for your suggestion. Although, the story of my brother triggered a lot of responses from the readers, I still believe that the last Judgment will come from the Lord Almighty.

Whatever things that we did in this world, there will always be the corresponding sentence on it.

Mark on September 24, 2012:

Hi! I know witch craft and im a good one, i dont use it for profit or anything that will benefit me, i just want to help

It is easy to repel barang, buy a new mirror, one that's not been used before, have it blessed i prefer on baclaran church, i believe you have high faith in our God that's what you need the most. Now place the mirror in the window of the house or the room you are staying and let the mirror face outward... Anything that's been cast by her will come back at her, and here's the good part what she does is life draining, casting barang drains her life and luck, imagine what will happen to her as you repel the spell back to her not to mention the karma of 3

I wish you to be rid of this which lady


Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on September 19, 2012:

@Naz: What a coincidence.! The chronology of events were the same with what happened to my brother.

It's called 'barang' in our dialect.

Sad to say, my cousin (my distant aunt) who usually helped those who are under such malady is already bedridden as she succumb to a severe kidney disease.

She also said that whenever she help someone, she will also feel the effects of the fighting of two forces (good and evil) and her body will also be affected.

Maybe, you can find a spiritual healer near your place that can help your brother.

Naz on September 17, 2012:

I think my brother is also under some sort of spell similar to what your brother has experienced. How can I know how to fight, or at least, remove the "curse" on my brother? We honestly believe that he should leave this girl but he won't listen to us. We do not know where his earnings are going to, and most of the time, he asks for money (where in fact, he should have been well supported of his own).

We're becoming sad every time we think of it (that he is under this spell or whatever), but we're having hard time thinking of what we can do to save him. So I'm thinking if maybe I can meet your cousin who helped you oppose the curse on your brother? Is that possible? Thank you.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on September 08, 2012:

@*****: This is some kind of retribution or payback time. With the experience that my brother inflicted, this is will be a precautionary measure, if ever the occurrence happens again.

***** on September 07, 2012:

If you suspect that you are being bewitched then what you should do is to gather your own urine in a tuesday or friday at 6pm..Put it in a non metal container, then put iron nails or any sharp objects in the container and then boil it.. Once your urine boils, the one who cursed you shall feel the pain of the pricking iron nails and of the other sharp objects. The caster will definitely take off the curse he placed upon you.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on September 05, 2012:

@hecate-horus: Even though, my grandfather and my mother , plus my relative here in Manila have knowledge on this practice, they didn't advocate or encourage me to do the same. They know the consequences if I have to used it.

Thanks for being considerate with all the comments you're read here.

P.S.My brother? He's heartbroken again. His latest girl had another guy and he wasted all his money to this ungrateful girl.

His hopelessness is only strengthen by our advice to let go. This is another hurting experience for him.

hecate-horus from Rowland Woods on September 04, 2012:

First of all, I'm sorry about what happened to your brother. My heart goes out to you. But also I'm saddened by the attitude of some of people who replied to this...esp. the person who wants to make witchcraft a punishable crime. I thought we left the Salem Witch Trials behind us?? I can tell you some Christians have done their share of damage to this world, but I digress. Punish the evil, not the religion. We are all different and all capable of evil and hate... it's the intent of our hearts that set us higher to the divine, not the labels that people slap on to us.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on July 30, 2012:

@Lady Ace: Thanks for the understanding. I'm grateful with people like you.

From what I've heard regarding the woman, she is currently experiencing repercussion with what he did to my brother.

Lady Ace on July 24, 2012:

I agree with Amanda Gee and I am glad that you respect all kinds, because there are many witches out there who have morals and do not hurt people like that woman did. What happened to your brother was terrible and it's great that he has alot of support. The Craft should never be used to inflict harm unto others or for personal gain because it will come back (by what I read before x3). That woman who did all that awful stuff to your brother will get what she deserves.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on July 18, 2012:

@Amanda Gee: Thanks for the visit. Yes, respect all kinds of people. My cousin practices witchcraft, but not to inflict harm to others but help in solving its ill-effects.

Amanda Gee from Cameron, Missouri on July 18, 2012:

I'm sorry for what your brother went through, but please don't consider all pagans and witches evil as we are not!

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on July 18, 2012:

@hotmamma27: Fighting those evil doers will mean you must trust the Lord and believe that we can do many good deeds with God's help. Always!

hotmamma27 on July 15, 2012:

Thanks so much I am not to smart in dealing with this issue but I will look for help because i am prepared to fight it throught. Thanks soo much!!!

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on July 14, 2012:

@hotmamma27: This is a better advise from OldWitchcraft. Thanks for the help.

OldWitchcraft from The Atmosphere on July 14, 2012:

The first thing I'd do is get some Terro brand ant bait and put it outside the house as per the instructions on the box. Then, I'd look for a root doctor in the area who knows how to deal with black magic curses. If you don't already know what to do, you are ill equipped to deal with such attacks. Someone will probably have to come to your house and do some work for you. Look carefully, there are a lot of charlatans who just want to take your money. Be prepared to pay something reasonable, but not too much for this service.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on July 14, 2012:

@hotmamma27: I don't have the knowledge to get rid of the ants unless they are living under the wooden part of your home. Or there must be something that make those black ants saturate a particular part of the house.

I don't have knowledge about voodoo, but my mom always remind us to always bring salt when we are under spell of this kind of witchcraft and a lot of prayers.

hotmamma27 on July 13, 2012:

Also how can I get rid of these ants???

hotmamma27 on July 13, 2012:

@OLDWitchcraft & Travel man1971. I just recently joined and I tell you these past two years have been rough and recently I am kind of understanding why. First I went outside my house and I seen a funny looking substance right by our main house door it looked like a mixture of cinnamon and alka seizture and looked soo gross so I tried to pour hot water on the substance nothing the water poured right over and I tried cholorox and again nothing that's when I knew oh this has got to be something weird. And here recently I learned that black ants is used in voodoo is this true can black ants really be used in voodoo cause that's what I have even noticed black ants have just taken over our house we can be sitting in our house and boom ants just crawl on us and they are even outside everywhere. If it is voodoo what do i need to do?? Please help I am really fed up but I want to do something about this.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on May 22, 2012:

@OldWitchcraft: Thank you for taking your time here in my hub.

During the writing of this article, my brother was in recovery as I also experienced the same.

OldWitchcraft from The Atmosphere on May 21, 2012:

I'm just reading the last of your comments... I see you got help from your knowledgeable aunt. That's good.

My husband is Mexican. What goes on down there (and some parts of the U.S., but not the mainstream parts) is very similar. There are witches of all kinds. His mother, a couple of his sisters and myself are knowledgeable healers. I, also, wouldn't want to cross his mom. I have some idea what she's capable of and she can be a little bit of a control freak.

Thanks again for posting this. I've bookmarked it so I can find it, again.

OldWitchcraft from The Atmosphere on May 21, 2012:

A couple of these posters are absolutely deluded and ignorant... I'm sorry for having to say that. But, you must understand that part of witchcraft is a skill. I have sent some powerful curses to people who deserve it - people who harm innocent people or try to harass or harm me. I'm still here and looking pretty youthful in my old age. Witches know how to protect themselves from witchcraft. The witch at the center of this story is clearly fearless. I've never been to the Philippines, but I had a lot of friends from there back in college. If you get out of the bigger cities, you're sure to find witches of all kinds, including those who are healers.

In reality, witches are usually both - we can do some powerful healing. I can do things no doctor could dream of - they don't think it's possible. And, I can cause a lot of trouble for bad people. It's all witchcraft. I am anonymous here. It's not something people go around talking about and most people who know me have no idea what I can do. It's not like Wicca...

OldWitchcraft from The Atmosphere on May 21, 2012:

This is a fascinating story and there is a lot in it that is familiar to me. Witches (authentic witches) work with energy in a way similar to how some martial arts people do. Through meditation, energy can be stored in the body and used to heal or harm. It can be used to send a physical shock, as well - like the electrocution incident. This thing with the ants is similar to a Hoodoo practice here in the States wherein a person is driven completely insane by use of sympathetic magic. Ants, seeds and some other things are used to destroy the person's mind. The photograph has energetic harmony to a person, it can be used to diagnose and heal someone or to cause harm. The stronger connection you can make with someone (like them living in your home or apartment, etc. where the witch has access to hair, clothing, DNA, blood, saliva, etc.) the more easily you can influence them. Although, a skilled witch can tune into a person's energy just by their voice or holding an image in their minds. The first thing to do is physically get away from the witch. But, this won't end the problem. No doctor can cure the ill caused by a witch. Christian faith provides little protection. You and especially your brother need a healer who understands witchcraft - a curandero (a good witch). They can break the energetic ties for you.

Thank you for posting this story.

Vote up and accolades!

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on May 09, 2012:

@kittythedreamer:Thanks for having an 'elite' commenting on this hub.

Really,"What we sow, we reap," as passage from the Bible stated.

What we did to our fellow men will boomerang to us in the end.

As to the issue on witchcraft, many Filipinos are charmed by the magic of the word in order to gain tangible things.

Some of my relatives practice it for good,like what happened to my distant aunt who helped save the life of my brother.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on May 09, 2012:

@.: Period, is that what you mean? Why not reveal yourself, if what you've written here is all true.

I didn't wrote this article without basis and I also read based from the Bible that witchcraft is not crafted by God but by Satan.

From what my source relayed to me, that old woman is now an insane person. Isn't it a viable proof that she did inflict harm to my brother and myself?

Kitty Fields from Summerland on May 07, 2012:

To the person who commented last - witchcraft can be either positive or negative...though there really isn't "bad" or "good" witchcraft, that comes down to the person who performs it. And yes, you most certainly can use witchcraft against someone to harm will come back to you three times but there is no appendices to that statement saying when it will come back. To say that it will put you in an "early grave" is a hasty assumption. I have practiced the craft for 11 years and have never used it to harm another living soul; however, I have known people who have used it to harm but are still alive. What I can say is that magic can never fully control an individual, they have to be willing at some point to allow this to happen or believe that it is indeed harming them. Just my two-sense. ;)

. on May 06, 2012:

You do realize that real witchcraft cannot be used to bring harm to other people, right? If this woman had used actual witchcraft to harm your brother, she would have come to harm as well. In witchcraft, everything that you send out eventually comes back on you. I understand that you may be a bit ignorant of this, so it's okay. Witchcraft and what this woman was using are two very different things. For the past two years, I have spoken with people who practice true witchcraft and they all say the same thing. Witchcraft can only be used to help other, because using it to harm people will send you to a very early grave. Please get your facts straight before slandering an innocent sect of people such as wiccans. Christians are cited commonly with many horrors such as child molestation and homophobia, but I am wise enough to understand that that is the world putting a negative face on something that is good. Please don't let the same type of thing blind you about the true nature of witchcraft.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on May 02, 2012:

@Alice: God is still the source of all the graces we receive everyday, including casting away bad spirits.

Dr. Olukoya is not yet here in the Philippines.

My suggestion is that, you must fervently believe in the power of the Almighty and no evil forces can penetrate your protected soul.

It will boomerang on them. I'm sure of that. :D

Alice on April 17, 2012:

I am desperately in need of someone who can fight the most powerful "mangkukulam". Could it be this Dr. Olukoya?

Thanks a lot.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on April 14, 2012:

@delivernace minister: Thanks for your concern.

I goggled the website of Dr. Olukoya according to your suggestion.

delivernace minister on March 11, 2012:

your life will be dramatically changed look up Dr Daniel Olukoya on YouTube or Amazon. His ministry knows how to deal with these witchcraft issues. You will be able to destroy them and they will never mess with you again. He will teach you how to call fire from heaven to comsume the evil powers behind these people. Be blessed in Jesus name.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on March 05, 2012:

@Trix: You're right, Trix. One of the Seven Deadly Sins, ENVY, always thrive in many of our neighbors.

You hit the nail right when you cited crab mentality as one of the examples.

Recently, a lady on her twenties, became the latest known victim of 'kulam' or witchcraft in Leyte, Philippines.

Even priests and pastors of churches here in our country can't believe that it's happening.

If they've omitted reading important warnings from the Bible regarding sorcery and witchcraft, then, they'll be forgetting their pledge to fight against demons who continue to infiltrate our faith in God.

That's the best weapon we can rely on in order to fight witchcraft - the unwavering faith to the Creator.

Anyways, our physical sufferings will be rewarded by heavenly gifts once we believe in Him.

Trix on February 05, 2012:

Kulam in Philippines is very alive. Mangkukulam or witches are agents of satan on Earth. They are harming innocent and defenseless people.. I am a victim of kulam twice because of simple enviousness.. a common trait among Filipinos be educated or not... now the trend is many are wanting to learn the black magic. The problem about kulam.. who will give justice to the kulam victims?

In the old times in Europe, witches or mangkukulam are burn to death.. because they are cruel and harming people for a silly reason and nobody is getting back at them! Prayers have no use... so the innocent becomes helpless. I myself witness how a kulam or barang victim go through.. it is very agonizing!

This type of people should be put to DEATH without any once of MERCY.. they are the dirt of our society... they are deadlier than criminals.. they harm everyone they like to harmed... The God of the bible suggest ending the lives of this people who practice witchcraft.

The problem now is that this people feel they are invincible & some feel like celebrities with there abilities of black powers and many are suffering unnecessarily.. plus the public is not minding there satanic activity! The religions are helpless too! Media/TV is liking them for there negative news! Madness!

Sensible people are ambitioning to rise-up, but this people wants to harm and pull you down.. a typical crab mentality among Filipinos.

I call on the victims of Kulam.. and join me hunting them down.. because they simply dirt in our society. My blood is boiling with this mangkukulam in our country!

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on October 28, 2011:

@Revenge: I think it's not necessary for now. We leave it all up to God.

Recently, we received news from my brother's wife that the old woman was acting like an insane person. She still waits for my brother to come and work at the shop, though at present he's already working in Saudi Arabia.

Revenge on October 26, 2011:

Instead of trying to put her in jail why don't you find someone who can help you with making her suffer because she deserves it.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on September 01, 2011:

@Bry: You must get out of that "mambabarang" and turn your belief in One True God (through Jesus). It will cleanse your whole being.

We sill cannot put to jail that kind of person (I don't know why the system never allow it). They always get away with the laws of man. But, I'm sure they'll never get away with the Great Judgment.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on September 01, 2011:

@Green Art: I thought, I already answered your response but, thanks for your comment. Evil lives in this world so people must be careful about it.

Bry on August 26, 2011:

Hello! Good day. I'm a victim of witchcraft (Mangbabarang) until now. It's like to what happen to your brother. If you don't mind. How can i fight this kind of evil things? How we capture and get to jail this kind of people (Mangbabarang). Thanks

Laura Ross on July 01, 2011:

I was so sad to hear about all your brother went through as well as your family. What a scary time for all of you. Evil unfortunately is in the world we live in. I hope you all continue to live joyful lives not darkened by those who worship evil. Take Care

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on May 26, 2011:

@bla: My brother renewed his trust with us; he's presently working overseas. Yes, I told him about it. Pray always to God through Jesus, not to the so-called intercession because it will be worthless.

bla on May 26, 2011:

Really sad story... you should see a Shaman or tantric to remove the effect of that black magic... Also, do a lot a lot of prayer at home and keep chanting prayers anywhere you are .. in your heart!!!

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on October 28, 2010:

@hammaly: Thanks for the concern.

We slowly persevered. My brother is now working overseas. And the woman? A worker at the shop where my brother used to work said that she became disoriented and continue to wait for my brother's return.

Some of my brother's things were left at the woman's disposal, nad our photos, too.

hammaly on October 28, 2010:


I am a person who lives in Belgium, and I know well the world of the witchcraft. I was a victim of it during many years, and today I help a lot of people . If somebody needs help(assistant) you can contact me.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on October 14, 2010:

Yo-yo: Faith in God and the support of the family are two pillars that can withstand the effects of witchcraft. Those who are suffering from this kind of evil, please don't lose hope. God is always there to help us. Accept His power and it will overcome bad things that are happening to you, like being a victim of witchcraft.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on October 14, 2010:

followerofChrist: Thanks for the sound advise. We did what you've explained here. My elder brother recovered and is now working overseas.

Yo-Yo on October 06, 2010:

I too am a victim of witchcraft. It comes in many forms, languages and religions but all with the same evil motive. My faith in God and the support of my family saved my life. If I had the power of a politician I would make witchcraft a punishable crime. It can't lead to so many bad deeds including death.

followerofChrist on August 05, 2010:

Hello. I'm a Christian and I think that fasting and praying could help your brother. Try to research about fasting and witchcraft. Witchcraft is real and it is demonic! Even the Bible contains lots of accounts about witchcraft. Try to contact Christians as well so your brother could be helped. Try to plead the blood of Jesus also over your whole family. I'm a victim of witchcraft too.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on January 08, 2010:

Have you seen the true account of the movie "Paranormal Activity"? Activities of evil are overwhelming.Bacville and topgunjager, thanks for the comments. It will help a bit to ease the trauma of my brother. I've written this account because I'm too skeptic to believe that there are people who can mix witchcraft, money and slavery these days. I thought, they use it only for the sole of inflicting punishments to people who they have grudges.

topgunjager from Sunnyvale, CA on January 08, 2010:

The stupidity is so overwhelming I don't even know how to react to this.

bacville from Manila, Philippines on January 06, 2010:

Your account is too grim to be ignored. I symphatize with the struggle of your brother. Our faith in the Almighty God will save us against all forms of evil.
