''REPEAT after me! To be together with who I want,'' a family of Romanian witches chant via a  video call to a client in India paying for a love spell.

The session, in a decorated shed in a back yard 15 km [9 miles] north of Bucharest, is one of the many consultations the family holds online, alternating them with rituals live streamed on Facebook to build up their digital following.

''A truly powerful witch can solve problems from a distance,'' explains 20 year old witch Cassandra Buzea.

''It's not the phone or Facebook that are doing the magic. It's the words that we're saying, the rituals that we're doing and it's enough to look each other in the eye for the ritual to.

The power of the Internet has allowed Romania's busy witch community to gradually migrate ancient practices on the Web.

Witchcraft has long been seen as a folk custom in the eastern European country, and many of its estimated  4,000 witches are luring customers from Europe, Asia and the United States.

Buzea said it was the younger generation that had persuaded the old about the power of the  'selfie', and her mother was quickly on-board.

''Nothing's changed, the craft is the same, but now it's much easier for us to be in contact with clients from other countries,'' said  Milaela Minca, who taught her daughter Buzea the family craft.

The honor and serving of the latest  global operational research on Witches and Witchcraft, continues.
