With more than three hundred kinds of ethnic groups exists here having cultural diversity mainly being influenced by various kinds of cultures like that of India, China, Arabia as well as from Europe. Black magic is one such quite prevalent happening or better said rituals which are seen being practiced by many in Indonesia.
Many who have visited the islands of Bali situated in the Indonesia would have surely get to know about the prevalence of these black magic practices. One gets to see various kinds of traditional practices that are seen by all new visitors who come to this mysterious land which is filled with various kinds of rituals and practices. With the presence of varied of believers who have a great faith in these black magic practices, this edition is primarily aimed in helping you guys with the best ways or better said ideas in getting or solving a specific thing.
There are so many old and customary rites and rituals where even outsiders can take part, or can visit to just see on how those rituals are performed, especially if one can attend the Balinese rites inside the temple, would give a whole new understanding of the customs. Yet another shocking information that can be found in Indonesia (to be specific from Bali) related to black magic is that Indonesians do not practice black magic, however they believe in black magic and occult forces but do not practice it. Thou it has been also observed that Indonesians are very finicky when it comes to such rituals or spells, for example if someone finds a clove of garlic left outside their door, they would take it as a spell casted by an ex-partner who wants to take revenge.
Banyuwangi, Sumbawa, Baten and the island of Lombok are some places in Indonesia were strong black magic is practiced, however, people do not admit of casting such black magic spells. It is such believed that Banyunwangi is a cushion or shield between the island of java and Bali and had been always into trouble due to the parties of both side and met with botches, resulting into the practice of spell casting and black magic among its people.
According to some books of history it can be understood that black magic adapted in Banyuwangi is a mixture of animistic credence and Islamic theology which ascended due to the inter religious clash during the mataram court in the sixteenth century and ahead, wherein some history pages unfolds the birth of Banyuwangi’s practice of occult forces to Tulung Augung, an area in the west of East Java.
However, longing to its origin, black magic theology prevails to a great extent in and around the area of Banyuwangi with mostly all and renowned residents having not only believe but also faith in it. Any kind of catastrophes or calamities, be it within private limits or own or for individuals, be it public or shared are linked with black magic in some or the other way.
There is basically two forms of black magic spells performed or practiced in Banyuwangi, one known as SIHIR, used for killing enemies or other people directly, and is known as BUSUNG, where a spell is casted to inflate the stomach of the dupe to such an extent that it looks horrifically big in size and may blast away. It is also believed that Busung victims cannot escape death and that the reason for the oversized stomach are probably insertion of small animals, knives, nails, broken glasses or even frying pans using black magic spell.
The second form of magic that exist in Banyuwangi is known as RAPUH, a spell casted to make the target or prey suffer for his / her whole life by causing illness such as making the prey blind or by paralyzing the victim. Types of magicians that exist here are also known as DUKUN, thou they mostly are found in Java rather than Bali.
It has been found that most of the Javanese who are mostly Muslims do not practice or use these black magic and even would not discuss or tell anything when asked about black magic, but when time requires it due to personal or family problems that might and may occur in each individual’s life, they do not hesitate in visiting a DUKUN or PEDANDA.
Since Indonesians or Balinese or Javanese are not in much favor of talking about black magic, especially sharing their experience – if ever happened, just tap them over and tell them that you are a DUKUN and you need a piece of their wore cloth or some hairs from their head, and you would be amazed to see that all conversation with the person you are with will stop. Thou I would suggest you not to do this yourself, and keep reading my articles for more information.
