I was now face to face with the castle moat, which was, indeed, very wide and very deep. Alas! I could not swim, and my chance of escape seemed of a truth hopeless, as, doubtless, it would have been had I not espied a boat tied to the wall by a r... Read more of Crossing The Moat at Math Puzzle.ca
This spell can be used for a variety of banishing needs: banishing illnesses
(therefore it's a healing spell), bad habits, negativity, etc.,
You will need:
· Carbon or flash paper · Business size envelope
· A slip of paper that will fit in the envelope · Appropriate herbs
Healing: Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Sandalwood, Juniper, Thyme, Willow
Banishing: Basil, Asafoetida**, Valerian, Black Pepper, Patchouli,
Agrimony, Acacia, Cypress
· Appropriately colored candles
Healing: Green, Blue Banishing: Black Fast Action: Red
· Appropriate oil for anointing the candles
Healing: Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Sandalwood
Banishing: Basil, Cypress, Acacia, Frankincense
· Appropriate incense
· Charcoal for the incense if necessary
· A disposable pen in black ink
At the full moon anoint and charge the candles with the essential oil and bless
and charge the herbs you are going to use. Surround the base of the candles
with the appropriate herbs and light the candles, cast your circle or otherwise
prepare for magic as you normally would.
Cut a human figure out of the carbon paper (designed appropriately as specifically
male for men, female for women) that will fit inside the envelope. Of course, if you
need to, you can use a larger envelope but the business size is generally sufficient.
Lay the figure on the slip of paper between the candles, charge and name it as the I
individual and with intent write on the figure what you are working on. Such as, if the
spell is to heal an illness you might simply write whatever that illness is, in example:
"cold/flu." You might also write it over the appropriate body part, such as if it is a head
cold write it on the head. If it's to ove an addiction to cigarettes you might write
"cigarettes" on the chest (or where ever you identify most with smoking) and even add
a cigarette in the envelope! Be creative with it.
Charge both the paper and the doll with intent, by the elements, etc., and place them
and some of the herbs in the envelope and seal it up. Lay it between the candles and
allow them to burn until half gone charging and meditating on the purpose of the spell
all the while! Store the candles somewhere secure to use later when finishing the spell.
Then place the envelope under the mattress of the "ill" person or recipient of the spell if
possible. You may also, if it is not possible to put it with the person, place it behind a
picture of the person in a frame; inside of a book they gave you, etc., You can also
include nail and hair clippings if you like or what you will.
Let this stay undisturbed for as long as needed but it should not exceed one full lunar cycle.
When the magic has run it's course and the deed is a allplished, or when the cycle is
done light the remainder of the candles and set your circle or prepare as you did before.
Then open the envelope and put everything on your altar, between the candles in a fire
proof bowl. First burn the slip of paper with the writing along with the herbs and the hair,
nails, etc., if you included them in the spell, then burn the doll. As the doll burns it will turn
from black to white (great sympathetic stuff here)! As you burn these things be sure to keep
focused on the intent (such as banishing the illness, visualize the person whole and healthy,
no longer addicted, etc.) Scrape all of the ashes back into the envelope and use some of the
candle wax to seal it up again. You can carve symbols in the wax if you like.
Be sure to, get rid of everything which you used with this ritual (candle nubs, any
remaining bits of herbs, the pen, etc., you should not have to get rid of the incense or oil
as you should have used it anyhow). Bury or otherwise dispose of the envelope, far away
from anyone's home or property.
*Flash paper (the kind magicians use) is great to use for the paper, just be sure the paper is
safely in the dish before lighting it! This shows the problem properly vanishing in a flash and
the doll burns removing the black and turning to white.
**Use extreme caution with Asafoetida, just a whiff of this herb has been known to cause
vomiting, better to substitute Valerian.
