The purpose of this spell is to rid yourself of the negative energies of someone
who is mentally or emotionally abusing you. If done properly, it will not harm the
object of the spell nor will it affect his or her daily life in any way. It will simply
make the person powerless to mentally or emotionally harm you.
-Small cloth doll, leave the head unstitched until you are ready to begin the ritual
-Needle and thread
-Some personal item from the person you want to bind (fingernail clippings, hair, handwriting sample)
-Black ribbon Black candle Cauldron or other fireproof container
-Sterilized needle Piece of paper and pen One candle at each quarter (optional)
Call the quarters - I like to use candles at each quarter to form a circle of fire for extra protection.
Light the black candle
Concentrating deeply on the person you are binding, place the personal object
inside the head of the doll and sew it shut.
Tie the black ribbon around the poppet's head, signifying the binding of that person.
''With harm to none, my will be done
I hereby bind you (name of person)
Your words cannot harm me
Your thoughts cannot harm me
You cannot harm me''
Continue chanting this or something like it until you feel power surging through you.
Visualize the person helpless to slander or verbally and mentally abuse you while you are chanting.
Now, to bind the spell -
If you have a sigil or a Craft name, sign it on the small piece of paper. If not, sign your own full name.
If others are working the ritual with you, they too should sign the paper.
With the sterilized needle, prick one of your fingers and put a small drop of blood over your signature.
Again, if others are working with you, they should place a drop of blood over their signatures.
(using a different needle, of course)
Fold the paper, light it on fire and drop it into the cauldron (which should be on a heat-proof surface!).
Meditate on the flames until the paper allpletely burns away.
If you are working with a group, join hands at this point and feel the power
surging around the circle as the spell is bound.
Ground and center
Release the circle. Thank the Goddess and God for their protection and power
Bury the doll as far away from you as possible within the next few days.
