the Devil’s Mark(s) – Signs You’ve Been Attacked by Evil Spirits


Back in the ancient times and until recently, it was believed that Spirits did interact with our Realm. Moreover, these invisible agents played a very important role in shaping this World’s destiny. The Devil’s Mark is a term used to identify a material impact of Evil Entities on humans, animals, plants, trees or non-living things. The Search for the Devil’s Mark, is tricky because it actually collides with the Witch Marks, which are ENTIRELY different. Although this, was not always clear…

Due to the inquisition, the lack of knowledge and free distribution of the Arcane Wisdom innocent men and women where tortured and executed as they were considered devil’s pawns. Unfortunately, Witchcraft was a synonym for Demonolatry. Only recently, we’ve managed to make it clear to the World, that most of Witches have nothing to do with the Devil. Most of them, don’t even recognize him or his minions.

The History of Devil’s Mark

Let me remind you that not long ago, Adolf Hitler and the Nazis did actually try to conjure demons and other entities to help them win the War. Also, let me refresh your memory that the Allies also conjured forces of Magic and Spirits from beyond to strike back. The Druids of the UK joined forces to raise a cone of Power and diminish the magic of Nazis. Both armies searched for powerful men, women and children who could help them win the WW2.

Unfortunately, due to the fundamentalism of Dark medieval Ages, it was believed that ANY interactions with the Spirits was actually a form of contacting the Devil and his minions. This is where the Devil’s Mark was confused with the Witch Mark. Adolf Hitler did look for both signs trying to recruit anything powerful enough to help him do his dark biddings. According to many accounts he did manage to find people bearing both marks. But more on this later…

The Devil’s Mark and How it Looks like!

According to the old Grimoires, the Devil and his minions can appear in many forms. Hence, any interaction with these entities can differ. For the devil(s) can scratch, can bite, can even lick their targets. However, these ‘possible’ signs on one’s skin may have some similarities. 

Disclaimer: Before going on analyzing the accounts of Grimoires, I should tell you that ANY mark on your body SHOULD always be examined by a medical doctor in case of skin issues. 

  • 1. It looks and feels weird! What does this mean? The “devil’s” mark is a cold mark of death, despair and emptiness. It’s the touch of death (and not the good one). The color of the skin is weird like it has ‘less’ life. Looks dry, empty, lifeless.
  • 2. The marks don’t bleed! These marks are more common when dealing this vampires and astral parasites. Demons lack of energy hence it may look like this mark was caused by sucking down your vital energy of the area. Drained, colorless, lifeless.
  • 3. The marks are immune to pain. Why? Because pain is a natural defense mechanism that has been abused.
  • 4. The marks appear right after a ‘nightmare‘. We’ve seen in sleep paralysis that entities may attack us. These signs might be ‘scratches’ after an astral fight. 
  • 5. The marks appear prior a series of unfortunate events. It is believed that any interaction with the Devil and his minions can bring bad luck, accidents and all kinds of unfortunate events. It was believed that some demons are responsible for illness, other for bankruptcy and material destruction, breakups, death etc. 
  • 6. The marks appear after a spell breaking. Many evil spells try to backfire when we try to break them. This is an actual sign that the spell was so strong and drew its power from evil forces. That’s exactly the reason why we always propose to employ a professional when it comes to spell-breaking. It’s clearer if the marks make peculiar symbols or sigils. 
  • 7. Tattoos. Yes! Tattoos! In case of voluntary marking, one could actually use a tattoo in order to represent the pact with a certain spirit.As seen in our detailed article on tattoos, they are permanent marks which are used for centuries of Spiritual Practice. However, a tattoo can be used in the Dark Arts too.

What happens if you have the Devil’s Mark?
