* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Now you could enscribe a sigil or glyph upon the back of the mirror and charge it with the pain and suffering of yourself and call to you the suffering and pain of any other who was harmed by him.  

 
Lovely idea! My favourite ones are made out of the person's full name in a circle and connecting all the double letters with an unbroken line. has always worked out fine for me.

Cheers!

I'm quite fond of a freezing and melting spell for this type of thing.  Take the photo, and freeze it in a block of ice.  Then, set the ice out to melt and say, with intent, something like "Illusion melt, illusion fade, be seen for what you are".  Repeat as necessary.

 
This.... PERFECT. Question: will not the picture -if it's printed on paper- litterally get muddled once the ice melts? Of course,  it probably would not even matter, in regards to the spell's working.:ashamed:

thanks for suggesting this.

I like the idea of the sigil, too moonsoledra... i never thought of sigils as a way to keep 'feeding' outside energy to a spell but it's brilliant. I've been looking into this more.

Not Veggiewolf, but I would think that having the picture kind of disintegrate during the spell would help in tearing away the image he has built up.  The clarity of the ice would stay, but the illusion he projects would get fuzzy around the edges, at the least, and people would start to notice where it doesn't quite fit little things they've noticed.  People do notice things, they just will often overlook them if they disagree with the picture they already have.  This would destroy that picture.

I do what I have to do to get by
But I know what is wrong, and I know what is right
And I die for the truth in my secret life

Part of the reason I am trying to get informed is the fact that the above-mentioned 'person' might become a threat to my well-being again sometime in the nearish future, and chances are that I won't be able to take legal action against him unless things get further than they did last time I had deal with him (which, I have no intention of allowing if i can help it).

I have a pretty definite idea of the kind of working I want to do, and it doesn't really even count as a curse to me (although in hodoo this is considered a kind of crossing) as the main purpose here is drive him far, far away from me, but I would like to cover all my bases this time around. I also am not sure of how my personal feelings toward the person involved might factor in the outcome... there's still a lot of anger here.


Anger can be used for your benefit because it brings you closer to gnosis.

I myself don't recommend cursing anyone at any time for any reason. The reason is, things seem to work in a circle. The old saying what goes around comes around has truth behind it. You will have created an event that will create other events etc. Besides, there is an alternative. Create a charm from something that you habitually carry or wear and use it to ward off any threats to your well being. Keep it charged at all times and it should suffice. You have done the proper thing and done so without doing anything that could be misconstrued as malicious or revenge.  You can also bless your home in the same manner which would keep your home and everything in it safe from harm. You can use an article that is something you use often such as a coffee cup for instance as the charm. Just don't drink from it anymore and put it up somewhere safe. I have things hanging from the mirror in my vehicle that serve the same purpose.

Last but not least,,, I'm a believer in having it so I don't need it. In my case I have a concealed carry license and a 9mm close to hand at all times. One can go on Ebay and buy a stun gun for as little as ten bucks if firearms aren't your thing. A good zap with 250,000 volts and at a minimum he'll pee all down his leg.

The person you feel threatened by has made his own bed and the day will come he'll have to pay for his misdeeds so really, running the risk of causing harm to yourself is unnecessary..
