Protection against Hurt (the Hurt Blocker) is a spell used to relieve a person from emotional pain. According to Charity Callahan, this spell is habit-forming and has serious side effects, such as keeping a witch's powers from working.
Maggie cast this spell to avoid feeling the pain caused by Parker's revelation. The spell worked temporarily until she saw him on campus, which brought the pain back. She cast it a second time to numb it again, and this time the spell affected her powers. While trapped in Tartarus, she was tormented by the dragon, who made her relive her most painful memories, effectively ending the spell.
