Čudesna moć hamajlije

Hamajlije se izrađuju od prapovijesti i kao takve vjeran su pratilac čovjeka u svim njegovim epohama postojanja. Ideja da neki poseban predmet može da zaštiti od zla stara je koliko i sam čovjek te je sasvim sigurno opravdalo svoju svrhu jer u protivnom ta bi se praksa napustila već odavno.

No, pogrešno je misliti da hamajlija samo štiti od uroka i magije, iako je to njena elementarna namjena, već ona ima daleko veću moć. Zaštita od hladnog i vatrenog oružja, napada zlih duhova, energetskih vampira, bolesti, ali i ogovaranja tojest negativne propagande, su samo neke od kvalifikacija koje posjeduje ovaj čarobni rekvizit.

Zašto nam treba hamajlija

Iz iskustva pouzdano znam da mnogo puta ljudima u rješavanju njihovih problema nije potrebna magijska usluga. Naime, često su pojedinci sami sebi najveći dušmani i svojim nezrelim ponašanjem uzrokuju si stalne probleme na poslu, u kući ili ljubavi. Dedukcijom došao sam do saznanja kako im je najbolje saliti olovo, kako bi se što lakše i brže oslobodili unutrašnjih blokada i straha, te otvoreno porazgovarati s njima, zapravo, osvjetliti im srž problema.

Najbolja stvar koja se svakom od nas može desiti jeste ta da sami sa svojim urođenim potencijalima i sposobnostima kročimo kroz život, jer tada ćemo zračiti samopouzdanjem i zadovoljstvom.

Naša životna sreća i smisao ne smiju ovisiti od talismana, partnera, prijatelja, materijalnih vrijednosti jer - sve su to stvari i osobe koje se lako mogu izgubiti. Razvijati svoje od Boga date sposobnosti, i na kraju krajeva, držati uzde života u svojim rukama, jedini su ispravni put za kvalitetan i kreativan život.

No, kako većini ljudi nije lako spoznati te važne životne mudrosti i usvojiti ih za početak im je potreba određena pomoć. A ona se upravo bazira na zaštiti od negativnih upliva kojima smo svakodnevno izloženi. Treba napomenuti kako hamajlija osim svoje apotropejske uloge ima i impresivan psihički uticaj na svog nosioca, naime, i sama spoznaja da uza se imamo nešto takvo ulijeva nam određenu dozu samopouzdanja. Što je, na kraju krajeva, jako dobro, pošto na takav način postižemo veću koncentraciju pozitivne energije u sebi i oko sebe.

Sa druge strane svrha hamajlije, po mom mišljenju, jeste da nas zaštiti od svega onoga što nije od Boga, a to su neprijateljski raspoložene osobe, negativna mjesta i događaji, koji slučajno ili namjerno, mogu u većem ili manjem intenzitetu nepovoljno uticati na naše psiho-fizičko stanje i sudbinu. Tu najviše mislim na urokljive oči (zavist ili divljenje) te nagaze svih oblika.

Pravila za uspješan rad

Moć odnosno profilaktička efikasnost hamajlije ovisi od nekoliko faktora. Prvi od njih svakako je upućenost u spiritualnu nauku onog ko je izrađuje. Postoji na stotine verzija onoga što se treba unijeti u sadržaj nekog amuleta, što prvenstveno ovisi o potrebi njenog budućeg vlasnika ali i određenim preferencama do kojih se dolazi analizom ličnih podataka naručitelja zaštite.

Odmah iza toga dolazi ono što se u Bosni naziva "nafakali ruka" a kod Arapa i Perzijanaca - baraka. Pod ovim pojmom misli se na božiji blagoslov koji posjeduju sveci no to je najkraća definicija. U širem smislu baraka je moć koja se može prenijeti na potomstvo ili čak biti nasljeđena od nekog pretka. Nju posjeduju i neki prirodni objekti i mjesta. Naime, poznato je kako je na pojedinim mjestima zemljin magnetizam intenzivniji nego uoubičajeno i ta su područja poznata po svojoj pozitivnoj energiji. Na njima su sagrađena neka najpoznatija sveta takozvana čudotvorna mjesta poput Lurda u Francuskoj itd.

Još jedan neophodan segment uspješnog sastavljanja hamajlija jeste direktna ili indirektna komunikacijama sa višim silama, posebno sa poznatim alimima (evlijama), koji se nalaze na jednoj od sedam nebeskih sfera i bez čije zaštite i pomoći nema ni uspješnog rada.

Zaključavanje hamajlije

Za izradu moćne i učinkovite hamajlije, osim osnovnih podataka poput imena i prezimena, datuma rođenja te imena roditelja, onaj ko naručuje amulet treba se izmjeriti, ili da mu to neko učini, koncem od vrha glave do pete i tu mjeru donese ili pošalje. Ukoliko nije u prilici ni prvo ni drugo onda se naznači visina. Nakon što se hamajlija završi i posebnom dovom "zaključa", sa tim koncem-mjerom omota se hamajlija i sveže u čvor. Time je njena izrada komplentirana.

U hamajlijskom tekstu vrlo često se susreću pojedina kur'anska poglavlja koja se tradicionalno smatraju profilaktičkim: 112, 113, 114 i Ajet-ul Kursi, no pored njih postoji i naglašena upotreba magijskih kvadrata tzv.vefkova u čijem sadržaju je neko od 99 Allahovih imena, te razni ezoterični znakovi poput sedam simbola magije, od kojih je jedan pentagram ili petokraka zvijezda, heksagram itd.

Osim na papiru sadržaj amuleta se može urezati i na srebrnu pločicu te nositi kao privjesak oko vrata. Potrebno je znati kako postoje i takozvane "kućne hamajlije" koje se specijalno izrađuju za zaštitu materijalne nekretnine. Kućna hamajlija standardno se postavlja iznad ulaznih vrata kako bi štitila dom i familiju od zla.

Jednom kada se završi sa ispisivanjem sadržaja, te nakon "zaključavanja", hamajlija se mora omotati selotepom kako bi se na takav način spriječio bilo kakav dodir sa vlagom, znojem ili bilo nekom drugom nečistoćom. To je jako bitno pošto bi prljavština ili voda mogla deformisati izgled pojedinih slova ili znakova i time u potpunosti uništiti cjelokupni smisao.

U tradicionalnom životu naroda BiH hamajlija se nekada nosila u malenoj metalnoj ili drvenoj kutiji obješenoj oko vrata, preko ramena, ruke ili struka. Vremenom takvu praksu zamjenile su kožne kesice koje su puno jednostavnije i praktičnije za upotrebu.

Ukoliko se hamajlija radi u cilju da nosioca zaštiti od ozljeda koje uzrokuje hladno ili vatreno oružja tada se mora zamotati u životinjsku kožu, na našim prostorima koristi se ovčija koža ili mušema, dok je u arapskom svijetu jako popularno zamotati je u kožu kameleona.

I u prvom i drugom slučaju ono čega se svaki vlasnik hamajlije mora striktno pridržavati jeste pravilo da je nikada ne smije otvoriti i gledati u njen sadržaj. U protivnom hamajlija će postati neučinkovita.

Protjerivanje kućnih džina

Iskreno govoreći vrlo često proces izrade hamajlije zna biti dosadan, naročito ako se taj posao oduži na mjesec ili dva. Kako je više manje poznato ona se nikad ne izrađuje u toku dana već uvijek noću, iza ponoći, i već samim time dovoljno je jasno da traži i određenu psiho-fizičku snagu, volju i koncentraciju. Svaki put iz prostorije u kojoj se piše moraju se protjerati amiri - kućni džini, nevidljivi stanovnici koje ima svaka kuća. Amiri imaju sklonost da pokvare svaki magijski rad jer ne trpe ulazak drugih nevidljivih sila na njihovo područje.

Vladanje odnosno manipulacija sa spiritualnim snagama obavezan je segment uspješnog rada u bilo kojoj sferi magije. Upravo zbog toga često u svojim tekstovima ali i razgovorima sa drugima naglašavam da magija nije niti jednostavna niti uopće vještina za svakog nego samo određene pojedince.

I za kraj, htio bi reći ponešto i o cijeni izrade zaštite. Prema načelima duhovne nauke cijena hamajlije nije jasno utvrđena i ona ponajviše ovisi o reputaciji onog ko je sastavlja i piše. Uz to treba dodati i cijenu pojedinih sastojaka poput šafrana, mošusa ili ružine vodice, koji čine važne komponente mastila. No, nije uvijek potrebno pisati takvom tintom već pojedini slučajevi zahtjevaju pisanje crvenom ili crnom olovkom i slično. Sve u svemu, izrada ovog jedinstvenog profilaktičkog predmeta nije niti jednostavna niti jeftina te se zbog toga treba prije naručivanja hamajlije dobro informisati o svemu vezanom za nju.

Zaštita firme

Danas kada je ekonomska situacija generalno svugdje loša pojedinci ali i firme bore se za svoj opstanak, služeći se svim i svačim, a posebno crnom magijom, da unište konkurenciju. Stoga, nemali je broj nekad uspješnih poslovnih ljudi koji su doslovno preko noći propali i zatvorili svoje firme.

Opisi onih koji su doživjeli ovakav scenario su uglavnom vrlo slični: nagli pad klijenata, pa sve do toga da nema niti jednog, blokiranost u svakom pogledu, završeni poslovi bez isplate, nesloga na radnom mjestu, itd.

Zbog toga, vjerovali ili ne u crnu magiju, svaka firma bi trebala biti zaštićena određenom vrstom hamajlije te, s vremena na vrijeme, "očišćena" nekim magijskim egzorcističkim ritualom, posebno mjesta kroz koja prolazi svakodnevno mnogo ljudi. Pod zaštitom ne mislim na one klasične religijske simbole i suvenire, poput krsta, ikona, tespiha/brojanica, slika Kabe i sličnog, jer to ne može pružiti adekvatnu zaštitu, pošto se svaka zaštita od zla radi na poseban način i uz upotrebu podataka i određenih molitvi.

Sedef


Another plant used specifically for protection against the evil eye was rue (Ruta graveolens) or Sedefil. Since newborn children were believed to be most susceptible to the evil eye, the Bosniaks used to put a branch of rue in the baby's clothes but and   associated it with birth as well as death (it was placed above the head of the deceased)



The most famous plant among the Bosniak people which is by tradition connected to the sacred and the mystic elements is rue (Ruta graveoles). The word rue (sadef) has its origin in the Arabic language and it is commonly called in Bosnia "sedefil", "sedefat" etc. It is commonly believed that this plant has strong apotropaic powers, the old Egyptians, Chinese, Romans and Celts were aware of this fact. In Arabia, Peganum Harmala is a plant that is credit for annulling negative effects, especially spellbound eyes, in Bosnia this role is performed by nacre. Its worth is perhaps best understood by the old adage of grandparents who say "one should cater for nacre more than its own child."

In alternative medicine in Bosnia and Herzegovina, nacre was mostly used for heart diseases. Tea was usually made from this plant or a dry mixture of it would be combined with honey and eaten as such. Prophylactic characteristic of nacre should be sought in its original form, namely one leaf had five smaller leaves which associate us to five fingers or Khamsa (Hand of Fatima). Except the fact that the plant was placed under children's pillows to protect them against spellbound eyes, girls usually wore a bundle of the plant in their hair for the exact same purpose. Besides being able to protect one from spellbound eyes, the plant possessed a characteristic which enabled it to annul any and every magical or hostile effect and therefore it was usually found in front of a house, a bush planted near the entrance door or perhaps from both sides to prevent evil from entering the premises. These are the reasons why this plant gained popularity amongst the Bosnian people who see nacre as their national amulet.

Also the practice of using nacre is common in Bosnian spiritual healers, especially "stravarka" (ocakli kadin). One of them, "stravarka" by the name of Bilka, puts a bundle of the plant on the Qur'an and a piece of led over it to annul evil as soon as she begins the ritual. Bilka explains the usage of this plant: nacre is a heavenly plant which wards off any and every evil.Nacre is successfully used to annul black magic, this is one of many Bosnian recipes. It is necessary to take nine flowers, nine leaves and nine branches of nacre and place them inside a bottle which was beforehand filled with clear spring water. After that one must repeat the following nine prayers: El-Fatiha, Ikhlas, Falaq, Nass and Tebetyeda. After this is completed the bottle is closed and left closed overnight. The following day a person which has problems with negative energy has to first take a bath, and then when the body is clean it needs to wash himself with the water from the bottle taking care that every part of the body is washed with this water. One should not dry his body with a towel, but wait for it to be dried by itself and after that the parts of the plant need to be thrown out in a place where people don't trot.


Natural order: Rutaceae. Other names: Herb of Grace, Herb of Repentance. French name: Rue. German name: Raute. Italian names: Ruta, Ruga. Spanish name: Ruda trago-amargo. Turkish name: Sedef otu. Chinese name: Yiin-haiang- ts'ao. Bosnian name: sedefil, sedefčić, etc.

Bosnian Folk Medicine

Just few decades ago, every settlement in Bosnia, no matter how big it was, had its traditional healers, herbalists, stravari, faladžija, Nowadays, situation is completely different and traditional occupations and crafts are condemned for disappearance. Disinterest of newer generations to preserve cultural heritage is not a problem only in Bosnia but in the rest of Eastern Europe.


1. Klinčići (hidrokela): a sickness that is present in newborns aged up to one year. It is manifested through a swollen scrotum which causes crying, nervousness and lack of sleep. The old Bosniak women regularly control their grandchildren's scrotum out of fear from them having klinčić. They are looking for water inside of them, if they are swollen or if they have changed their colour. This is done for the simple reason that the klinčić wouldn't evolve into a kila (hernia).

Klinčić can be cured in several ways. The most famous way of treatment is for the child to be brought to a folk doctor which possesses the gift of healing which he received from Allah. That gift can only be bestowed upon those children whose father dies before they are born. In Bosnia it is believed that they possess the gift of healing.

The treatment method is very simple; the sick child is laid down on the floor, his legs are raised so that his scrotum is free. The folk doctor makes a circle three times around the scrotum with his heel, clockwise, and the he lightly touches the scrotum with his heel. The therapeutic process is repeated three times. Then the doctor exits the room leaving the parents to dress their child. There is a rule for him that he mustn't turn backwards and that he must say "Alahimanet!" when the parents leave with their child. The most successful doctor in curing Klinčić is Derviš Husagić from Kakanj.



2. Strunjen želudac (Gastritis) If a person feels pain in his stomach right after eating then it is believed in Bosnia that his/her stomach has been moved out of its natural position, to the right or left side of the stomach. One determinant that the stomach has been moved is the pain under the ribs. The Bosniak women that treat such problems are called Želudarice. Before treating the ill they touch their right hand, the part between the index finger and the thumb, and if they feel a knot in form of a small pellet, then they are certain that there are problems with the stomach. That uncomfortable and painful experience can be caused by various factors but the most common are; if a hungry person lifts heavy weight, bad diet, stress, emotional problems, falling and hitting oneself, strong coughs, etc.

Stomach problems can be treated with massages, vacuum or magic. All three methods warrant success.



3. Namještanje pršljena: A large number of people have the "atlas" moved (their first vertebra) which can cause various psychophysical problems. This problem is often first encountered in childhood, caused by falling or sudden head movements. The movement of atlas is noticeable by a barely visible blue line across the nose, it looks like the capillaries burst. A few days after the injury, the child loses appetite and has problems swallowing food. As soon as that happens, the neck should be returned in its natural position so that the vertebra can straighten, because if they stay in that unnatural position, they will cause many problems in the man's life.

If a child falls down suddenly, there is a practice that his mother or some other person, takes his head with both hands near the ears and lifts it off the ground, in such a way the vertebra will be returned to its place.



Podizanje tjemena (angina tonsillaris): when a small child falls off the bed or from somewhere else, he can usually "padne tjeme", it is sometimes called the "third tonsil", this causes a lot of vomiting and loss of weight. The woman that deals with such problems, dips her middle finger in oil, places it into the child's mouth and pushes it upward towards the roof of the mouth. When she completes this process she then massages the child behind the ears, then takes it by the legs and turns it upside down and shake's it a little. This completes the healing process.



4. Vađenje truna: Hava Čebić from Banovići is one of the last practitioners of this ancient method of curing the inflammation of the eye epithelia. When a small piece of wood, stone, metal dust, hay or something else falls into a person's eye then epithelia gets irritated, the eye reddens and hurts. Before the treatment, which lasts less than half a minute, Hava rinses her mouth with alcohol and then holding the eye lids of the patient she searches for the foreign object in the eye with her tongue, as soon as she finds it she removes it with her tongue.

5. Warts are treated among the Bosniak people in various ways and the most common one is to rub the warts each morning with one's own saliva. If one persists in such a treatment he warts will soon disappear.

Sending back the spell (sihira)

Traditionally in Bosnia and Herzegovina the spiritual healers, stravarke, bule and hodžas, annul all those psychological and physical problems that can be caused by negative energy (black magic) by writing zapise (notes), hamajlije (amulets), by spirituality (da'ira) or salivanje strahe (melting lead). However, the effects of black magic can be neutralised by certain exorcist rituals that are specific to Bosnian magic. In the ritual all the power of the spiritual healer comes to the forefront, where the healer, without coming into contact with the patient, annuls the negative energy and sends it back to the one who created it by simply using the patients name and surname.


Since the old days in Bosnia there was a rule that when a patient's medical results claim that he is healthy but he still feels ill, that then it is time to visit a spiritual healer. Today the belief in the power of magic is similar to that one of the old days. The only thing that has changed are the names for the occult processes, and instead of the term sihr or black magic, evil eyes the terms negative energy is used, and instead of ograma, nagaza the term astral attack is used, etc. When a spell is cast at someone, then that person changes its behaviour quickly, all of a sudden it loves or hates a certain person, falls ill, divorces or experiences a series of accidents both business or family related.


Stravarka Nisveta B. from Zenica is one of the people who has a lot of experience when it comes to Bosnian magic, its disadvantages and its benefits if it isn't misused. Besides being known for the ritual of salivanje strahe (melting lead) she is very successful in falanje u grah or throwing beans. Her specialty is neutralising black magic and returning it to the sender.


-Black magic can be returned to the sender in a few ways. In my work I use the ritual with chicken egg and lime (Calcium oxide). The ritual is best performed during sunset, between 17h and 22h.




Nisveta places a half of kilo of lime in a metal dish and places an egg in the middle. Before she continues with the more aggressive part of the ritual she finishes her religious washing (ablution) and reads a couple of verses from the Qur'an such as Fatiha, Ikhlas, Falaq, Nass, Jinn, Mohammed and Ya'sin. After reading the mentioned verses, Nisveta blows towards three corners of her room, the fourth corner is left intact to serve as an astral portal through which the negative energy will go back to its sender.

After she has finished with the part consisting of prayers stravarka Nisveta pours a glass of water on the lime then takes a wooden stick which she uses to stir the mixture in a circle, around the egg, the mixture is stirred until the egg bursts because of the heat of the lime. While she stirs the lime Nisveta repeats the exorcist formula:

"Dear Allah, as the egg cooks in the lime so also the enemy of XX (here the name of the patient and his parents needs to be said) cooks in pain and agony. Let the magic be returned to the one who made it and who sent it!"

The moment when the egg bursts, the ritual is finished. The black magic has left the spellbound patient and has returned to the sender.


Sometimes the egg bursts in the first ten minutes of the ritual but more often it happens after half an hour to an hour. The success of the ritual is usually dependent on the person that is performing it. It is necessary to achieve a perfect focus, calmness and complete emersion into the ritual. The ritual is done with God's help and belief that only with His will the evil can be banished. For that reason it is necessary to achieve a mind and body state that resembles the one of an actor. If that is achieved often tears come to one's eyes. In the end it is a reliable sign that the ritual will be successful.



The witch or wizard immediately feel the effects of the ritual on themselves. It is manifested in smaller or bigger reactions depending on the strength of the black magic that they just created. If it's a weaker form of magical effect then the witch will usually have uncontrollable fits of laughter or crying, insomnia, bloated stomach while in the case of stronger spells she can experience serious health issues or even delirium.
