Perhaps the most intriguing beings in the world are werewolves also known a shapeshifters. The ability to change form when you are angry, or trying to protect someone you love or when the moon is high is an ability we all secretly desire. To be someone… something else, more powerful… more beautiful then we feel we are at certain moment. With so many books and movies out on how werewolf transformations happen, we found it important to go through the process here.

There are number of ways that a person, specifically a man, can become a werewolf. The first is the curse. This curse was done by an evil spirit or a witch and the many would go through the werewolf transformations involuntarily.

The second way to become a werewolf or a shapeshifter is to be bitten by a werewolf. Legend has it that any person that is bitten or scratched by a werewolf would become a werewolf. Perhaps a more interesting way to become a werewolf, and one of the easiest, is to put on the skin of the wolf. While many debate the effectiveness of this method, the belief is that if a person that is evil puts on the hide of a dead wolf, they will become a werewolf. If that person does not have access to the full skin then a girdle or belt made of wolf hide should be sufficient.

Other werewolves and shapeshifters have come into being through occult or devil worshipping. It is believed that if a person begins to worship the devil and surrenders his soul to the devil that the devil would then grant him/her the power to become a werewolf. It is possible that these werewolf transformations happen as a result of any evil spirit granting power to a devoted worshipper.

Werewolf transformations have also happened as a result of magic salve. There are a number of documented cases that mention the use of a very potent ointment that a person wanting to become a werewolf or shapeshifter rubs on their body. What exactly is in that magic ointment? Each ointment was made differently but generally speaking they all contained some amount of nightshade, henbane and belladonna. The solvent part was olive oil, pig fat or turpentine. Once distillation had been perfected alcohol was used as the solvent.

Many people have heard of the rituals that have been performed to help or cause someone to become a werewolf or shapeshifter. In most cases the rituals were done on those that willingly wanted the ability to shapeshift. The ritual would begin when the man would find an isolate place; he would then draw a big circle in the dirt. In the center of that circle the man would build a fire and make his magic salve. Once the man rubbed the salve on his body he would don the hide of a werewolf and sit and concentrate on the devil as he prayed to him.
The man would then shapeshift into a werewolf and run out to catch his prey.

Secretly we all want to find a way to let the wild werewolf inside of us all out. That is why we watch werewolves and shapeshifter movies and read werewolf transformation books. Discretely looking for a way to unleash the beast within us all.
