When a Love Spell Backfires …

As we approach Valentine’s Day many of you are thinking of casting love spells without any training in magick because those cute little spells you’ve found online look so harmless and fun. Instead, what you’re asking for could be the worst experience in your life so far. Let me tell you from experience, when a love spell backfires it’s like an explosion because the energies of Love are magnetic and potent. So rather than bore you with a discussion of Occult philosophy, I’ll break it down to a few simple rules.

  1. Any spell is subject to the laws of Karma. That’s right kids. For every action there is a reaction and sometimes you don’t get the reaction that you were hoping for ESPECIALLY if what you are trying to manifest is against someone’s FREE WILL. Timberlake expressed it best when he sang, “What goes around comes around… “


Whenever I work with ‘Love’ these days I prefer to do ‘Attraction’ Spells where potential partners have a choice. It’s less invasive and incurs far less karmic debt. Think about it … are you willing to interfere with any potential future relationships just because this time you are yearning for someone specific?

So, before you decide to take the powers of Nature into your own hands, think very carefully about what you are doing.



One of the worst things that anyone can do is put the blame on you for something that they have done to themselves … especially is you are both in the magickal community. I often talk about KARMA and this is one of those situations in which someone can literally entangle you in their karma for Goddess knows how long. It’s a narcissistic tactic that uses your visibility to reflect the presence of someone else who could be otherwise unknown … UNLESS … they are reflected in your light.

I’ll give you a recent example: the most visible victims/survivors of abuse right now are the victims of R. Kelly because of the recent documentary. Second place goes to the victims of Michael Jackson who are starring in a popular documentary on the hidden life of the King of Pop right now at Sundance. They are no ordinary victims. They are victims whose survival has put them in the spotlight for good or bad. Being victimized by a “star” raises their level of visibility.

Consider this, in ordinary life sometimes false accusations are made to leverage your popularity and bring the fake victims to the attention of whoever it is in interested in YOU. For every legitimate victim there are always fake victims who seek to join the bandwagon of attention.  If you are the target of false accusations remember that this could be the reason why you have been single out.  So, how does one break the cycle of the “Blame Gamers?”

One way is to simply not allow yourself to be bothered. While this works most of the time, if you are being slandered as part of a concerted effort to destroy you, your reputation and all that includes, then investigate filing a slander/libel lawsuit. Short of that block and delete regularly on all your social media outlets. This is a new type of self care that has been necessitated by the internet.

About Me: http://www.mariebargas.com



Throughout my life I have been admired and reviled … because of my looks. I have suffered and triumphed because of the ego gratification my attention or lack thereof … has given and/or taken away. I have had admirers and stalkers. I have been chastised with the phrase “The Goddess abhors vanity!” because my self love and self esteem were misinterpreted by a woman who in hindsight objectified me as much or even more than any man. I know that I am so much more than my face and body. In fact I long to touch people deeply with my words. But … once they see me … hear my voice … I am in danger of becoming an object and my words mean far less because for some … pretty women are supposed to be stupid and superficial.


I was molested by a man I believed to be a friend who felt entitled to my body because he was supportive during a bad break-up. I have been disappointed to discover that a former friend spent more time masturbating to my photograph than he did understanding me as a person, a flawed human being, seeking to evolve and thrive.

I have even had women friends who believed that I was self-centered and narcissistic despite the time and emotion I gave to them because they envied my looks. And most recently an old friend transformed into a drug addicted stalker who was triggered by the very sight of me to the extent that she got thrown out of a local FBI field office because she was convinced that I was a terrorist working for the Illuminati.


marieheadshotToday many of my clients are beautiful women with the same experiences who have been both celebrated and punished for their external beauty by people who cannot see past the surface to the fragile, inwardly beautiful landscapes that populate the human soul. Over and over again … I see the same painful pattern emerge and it breaks my heart. Women … all women … have hearts and souls. We all desire love and sadly many of us settle for the counterfeits to fill up the empty spaces. And time, age and the fading of  beauty, that double edged sword that fills our hearts and cuts them in half, looms on the horizon like a prophecy of doom.

Moving forward, I am very, very cautious about any new people coming into my life. I look for some sort of intellectual connection before I make a friend. Energy connections are more potent but sometimes more damaging. There are those people who “feed” off of life force and to them I am not a person … but an addiction. And no matter how much they make themselves believe that they “love” me, I am punished by them for withdrawing my light. Oh darling … I’ve had quite enough.

My beauty is a gift from the Goddess. It is not meant to make me an ornament, a toy, or a dildo. I am a manifestation of Her creativity, but I am NOT an inanimate work of art. Her true artistry is in the depth and complexity of all that I am and all that I have ever been and will be … I am NOT an inanimate object to Her.




Avoiding Energy Entrapment: Don’t send it back … just let it go …

In the days following the Full Moon Eclipse in the Blood Moon I feel energetically cleaner and clearer than I’ve been in quite some time. During this rare astrological event I chose to free myself from a severely co-dependent relationship that was draining my energy on so many levels. As a result many of my friends have noticed that my sparkle has returned and my light is no longer dimmed. During this process many have suggested that I send the energy back. But what I have discovered is that “sending it back” only perpetuates a cycle that can evolve into all out magickal warfare. My personal choice is to simply let go and move on … because I would rather devote my energies towards building and maintaining a better reality for myself … vs … using that same energy to constantly protect myself from my enemies.

I do regular shielding and cleansing. But the last thing I desire is to have to spend even more energy on magickal combat.

  1. I don’t feel the need to “prove’ myself to anyone or any thing.
  2. This phase of my life is more for bringing my hard earned achievements to fruition and completion.
  3. Knowing that energy follows attention, I am consciously choosing to invest my attention and intentions on creation and preservation instead of destruction.
  4. I have consciously been choosing over and over again to avoid unnecessary conflict and drama because that energy can keep anyone and everyone trapped. It is the type of energy that creates stagnation.
  5. Today and every day I choose MYSELF first and foremost … and that’s not motivated by ego … it is motivated by self-preservation … because in a human body one can only give and “feed” so much … before becoming depleted.

So, before lighting that “Return to Sender” candle or launching that spell, realize that you are giving attention to someone or something that you don’t want to be connected to. That creates karma. In my experience releasing that karma by “untying” vs. “cutting” the cords allows you the choice to be truly free. Keeping that energy out of sight and out of mind is far better than constantly waiting for them to “get their comeuppance.” Revenge or the thirst for revenge is another “karma trap.” Instead, I’ve chosen to skip the karmic exchange altogether and believe me … I’m free. And true freedom has given me the peace and happiness that I desire above all else.

Until next time … Namaste.

Psychic Summer of Love 2018

HeaderAccording to the Ancient Greeks there were 8 types of love.  And today, most of my clients call incessantly about romance, marriage and divorce. But looking back in history, it’s clear that many cultures subscribe to many different types of love, loving and love relationships.  Love is foremost in the hearts and minds of many. There have been songs written about it, books based entirely on romance and movies that tell the same archetypal love stories over and over again. The Beatles sang, “All you need is Love!” and while that may not be true…  to many is sure feels like it. So, this Summer my focus is going to be on telling my audience my own stories of love told through the eyes of a celebrity psychic. So, come into my world and let’s celebrate a “Psychic Summer of Love.”

The Beatles sang “All You Need Is Love” in the first live global telecast and the world responded. But what kind of love?

This Summer I am covering the 8 types of love according to the Ancient Greeks juxtaposed with a modern take on the emotion, how each form of love applies to the modern world and incorporating Love Magick, Love Spells with a dash of psychic sensibility … because I’m down with Lenny Kravitz … “You’ve Got to Let Love Rule!”

The 8 Types of Love

  • “Eros” or Erotic Love. The first kind of love is Eros, which is named after the Greek god of love and fertility. …
  • “Philia” or Affectionate Love. …
  • “Storge” or Familiar Love. …
  • “Ludus” or Playful Love. …
  • “Mania” or Obsessive Love. …
  • “Pragma” or Enduring Love. …
  • “Philautia” or Self Love. …
  • “Agape” or Selfless Love.

If you would like to schedule a reading via Phone, Skype or Zoom then please join me in celebrating the Psychic Summer of Love with an offer of $30.00 for a FIRST TIME ONLY 30 minute reading, (regularly $80.00) so we can see if we’re a good fit. You need someone that you can talk to openly about your concerns who isn’t going to judge, but help. Love can make anyone crazy. So, in the best case scenario I’d like to be your psychic bestie, who will listen without prejudice, make you laugh when you want to cry and give you a little magickal assistance to pave the way to your heart’s desire.

5 Relationship Lessons From The New Royal Couple


FOX+ presents Prince Harry’s Story: Four Royal Weddings. The documentary recounts the most important turning points in Prince Harry’s life, as well as his romance with Meghan Markle.

Everyone loves love stories and everyone has one to tell. But today, arguably no other love story is as talked about or is as celebrated as that of Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle. Their wedding, which happened last weekend, was one of the most anticipated and watched events of the year. After all, it’s not every day that a prince gets married — much less one who’s often called England’s favorite prince.

While the world watched this beautiful romance unfold, everyone collectively celebrated and awww-ed as we learned more and more about the new royal couple. And as with all love stories, there’s always something wonderful to take from it, so here are five of our favorite relationship lessons that we learned from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

1. Keep it Sweet and Simple

Despite the wealth and influence that comes with being royalty, Prince Harry proved that you don’t need extravagant gestures or grandiose displays to express your feelings and prove your love to your special someone.

During an interview with BBC News, the couple revealed that their engagement happened during a cozy night together in their cottage, while they were trying to roast a chicken for dinner.

“It was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He got on one knee,” Meghan Markle shared in the interview.

2. Love is Blind

Did you know that the royal couple met on a blind date? A common friend of Prince Harry and Meghan felt that they would definitely make a great couple, so she set them up.

Not having known too much about each other before their first meeting helped the two get to know each other from their own points of views, and not from the news or the media.

“I didn’t know much about him, and so the only thing that I had asked her when she said that she wanted to set us up, was, I had one question. I said, Well is he nice? Megan said to BBC as the couple sat side by side. It proves that only we can truly choose and judge what our heart really wants.

3. Quality Time Is Crucial

Going from dating to engaged in about a year and a half can be whirlwind for most people, but to the new royal couple, it wasn’t really the case because of the time they had put into bonding and getting to know each other.

“I think we were able to really have so much time just to connect and we never went longer than two weeks without seeing each other,” Meghan told BBC.

And true enough, the new royal couple put in the effort to make time for each other. Only a few weeks after they met, they had already gone on a camping trip together in Botswana.

“We were really by ourselves. Which I think was crucial to me to make sure we had a chance to get to know each other,” Prince Harry added.

And since then, the couple wasted no time going on more trips, attending weddings or sporting events, watching plays, and even shopping for Christmas trees. It only goes to show that love grows truer and deeper when you really spend your time connecting.

4. Family Matters

With Prince Harry, it’s inevitable that his family will be fairly involved and present in his relationships — but with Meghan, the couple gladly put family in the center.

Meghan and Harry have spent time with Harry’s brother, Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, and Meghan has already met the Queen multiple times as well. Even the Queen’s corgis have taken a great liking to her.

But perhaps one of the most beautiful symbols of family in their relationship lie in Meghan’s engagement ring. Prince Harry specially selected the diamonds in the ring from his late mother, Princess Diana’s, personal collection. It was very important to the couple to include her in their engagement.

“I think she would be over the moon, jumping up and down, you know so excited for me, but then, as I said, would have probably been best friends with Meghan,” Prince Harry shared last November. “Its days like this I really miss having her around,” he adds.

5. Relationships Are About Teamwork

In interviews, the royal couple always call themselves as a team, and it’s not hard to see it either. Always hand in hand in photos and clearly supportive of each other when being interviewed, the couple exudes unity and strength.

Meghan has attended Prince Harry’s polo matches, while both Harry and Meghan have supported many charities, which is in line with Ms. Markle’s humanitarianism.

As the pair held hands on the couch during a BBC interview, Prince Harry says: “We’re a fantastic team. We know we are. And, we hope to over time try and have as much impact for all the things that we care about as much as possible. I know that at the end of the day, she chooses me and I choose her. And therefore, you know, whatever we have to tackle together or individually, it will always be us together as a team. ”
