The practice of evil eye and curses also prevails all over Mexico, with many people seeking spell casters to use curses on someone who is their enemy. Even one can find a black magic market in Mexico where stuff related to black magic is found and is a labyrinth to most witch doctors, who can cast any spell as per the individual's need and make anything possible. It is believed that different races were residing in Mexico in olden times, and hence different ways of practicing black magic are adapted from these different races.
Mexicans witch doctors are not only believed to be using only black magic spells but are also believed to use deities belonging to Hindu and Buddhist communities as well as signs from the Chinese community. Suppose one can visit the black mass conducted in Catemaco on Friday by these so-called witch doctors or sorcerers. In that case, the person can observe that these black magic spell casters are dressed in black robes with signs like YING-YANG (belongs to Chinese mythology), which they term as a representation of dark and light. They would also have deities like those of SHIVA & GANESHA (Hindu gods). The first Friday from March is considered very auspicious by Mexicans, especially by the residents of this small village – Catemaco. Hence, this is the day when these witch doctors would create powerful magic spells specially made for curing and cleaning purposes.
According to the Mexicans, magic is of three kinds or three types, popularly known as white magic, black magic, and red magic. Those who practice red magic and white magic are considered good, and it is said that red magic and white magic are practiced for healing, but Mexicans fear those who practice black magic, also known as brujos (male), brujas (female). It is said that brujos or brujas can cast curses that cannot be taken back or reversed by other spells and that brujos or brujas can even cast black magic spells to kill someone instantly.
The brujos and brujas usually have a tendency to practice magic in caves, and hence it is said that the devil resides in the caves found in and around the small village of Catemaco in Los Tuxtlas. The brujos and brujas are said to worship Cobix, the black prince of the devil god who gives them the power to perform black magic and cast black magic spells and curses.
