Necromancy is the magickal practice of communicating with the dead. It has been used as a form of divination. It has very close ties to voodoo and black magick.
The purpose is to communicate by bringing the dead person back as a ghost or apparition. While Necromancy is related somewhat to shamanism, it is held in high regard as shamanism has been. This is mainly because while shamanism tries to call upon the spirits of ancestors and necromancy is done by voodoo and those who dabble or practice the black arts. (Black Magick) People who practice necromancy are called necromancers. This is very controversial to say the least. Some people believe there is nothing wrong with communicating with the dead for useful information. It really is one of those things that need to be decided by the person whether or not they want to include the practice into there path. Find out more on the history of Necromancy.
Necromancy literally means “corpse divination’. So there are some who argue that this should not be a taboo practice in magick and witchcraft. Necromancy is one of the earliest forms of magick. A large part of our earliest religions had or has root with communicating with our ancestors. The difference between general communication with the dead and necromancy are many. Necromancers often don’t care about the willingness of the soul; they just care about obtaining the information. The freewill of the departed is not a factor to them which goes against white magick practices on the freewill of people, spirits and things.
If you are wondering if you can be a necromancer, or want to know whether not it is safe then honestly you have no business attempting anything with the dead. Necromancers know the consequences of their actions. Because I am not an necromancer I cannot answer that question for you, but the warning is still there. Be careful what you wish for because those who dabble will pay the piper.
Classic necromancers used the blood and corpses of the dead. As most cultures have customs that forbid disturbing the dead, necromancy has been marked as taboo. This is why it is universally condemned and considered as black magick. If you want to know more, try reading the truth about necromancy.

Necromancy – Spells, Witchcraft and Magick
Necromancy spells usually include something to bridge the connection from the necromancer to the departed. This bridge can be anything from grave mold, fingernails, the actual corpse, bones, hair or anything else connected to the departed.
Throughout time women also practiced necromancy. These women were usually called witches. Witches generally do not practice necromancy in magick. Necromancy is really a very specific type of magick and really rarely has anything to do with modern pagans or wiccans.
This is a spell to speak with the dead. It is said that this spell will allow you to ask the dead one question. I haven’t tried this spell and I don’t think I will. I am putting it on this website for your study but be wise and only use this spell if you are confident in your abilities.
What you will need for the spell:
- one white taper candle
- a picture or personal belonging of the ancestor you wish to commune with
- lavender oil
Make proper preparations and charge and bless your candle with the lavender oil. Light the candle and meditate on the flame for a bit. Look at the picture of the ancestor or hold the personal belonging while saying this chant.
“Once here, now no more”
“But knowledge is forever in our core”
“Loving ancestor come to me”
“And answer this question 3 by 3”
Ask the question and meditate on the flame until you get your answer. If you don’t get you answer by the time the flame burns out then you can blow out the candle while imagining the smoke carrying your question to the ancestor. End the spell by saying “As I will it, so mote it be” and then go to sleep with the picture/token of the deceased.
You will receive the answer by the dream or another encounter with the ancestor.
