I am just entering black magick and I am still dealing with negative energy from my abusive father. He is current out of my life and I have no formal contact with him, but I am still dealing with past negative energy that is affecting my magical practices. I am currently reading the Satanic bible by Anton LeVay and I came across the ritual of destruction. Should I put a curse on my father as revenge and is this one a good curse or are there better curses out there? or is there a better way to use magick and channel that negative energy else where?
