Banishing Spells

Jelly beans can be used in the following house clearing ritual:

Begin by placing a small pile of jelly beans in a large bowl close to the front door, but cover the top of it with a lid, a plate, or something similar. Now, clean the house. Sweep, dust, vacuum, and put away the clutter. As you do this, call and invite all the little gremlins, goblins, ghosts, and disruptive spirits to come to the feast you have planned for them. It might go something like this:

Come one come all…
I have a nice sweet feast planned just for you…
soon it will begin… come and see…

As soon as the house is cleaned, take the lid off the bowl of jelly beans, and call all the little disruptive spirits to a sweet feast. As you call them, tell them to hurry up. Give them a minute or two to come to the bowl, and then encourage them to jump in.

Jump in jump in It’s a nice sweet treat…
jump in jump in before another gets your seat.

Visualize all the little spirits jumping into the bowl. When you have a sense that they’re all in. Pop the lid on and rush outside with the bowl of beans.. Now, you can run with it as far away from the house as is practical, or you can take them for a “fun little ride.”

If you opt for the ride, be very careful to have the bowl of jelly beans completely sealed so one can get out and infect your vehicle.

The best place to take the jellybeans and collected spirits, is a crossroads or graveyard. If that is the case, you can simply pour them out and take your leave. They will be happy there. If you leave them somewhere that they might make problems for others, you can encircle the pile of jelly beans with a thin line of salt and cayenne pepper to contain them.

When the ritual is finished, quickly go back to your house. Seal your front door with a thin line of salt. Right away, wash the bowl and the lid with warm soapy water.

Enjoy the cleared energy in your home!

Spell by Madame Fortuna

On a waning moon, on any day of the week except Saturday, place an ice cube into a bowl next to a white candle. Place lavender in a natural vessel (such as a shell) and white carnations in a vase with water.

Say aloud:

With the help of the guardians,
Goddess and God,
I ask that my fear gently be lifted from me.
As the ice melts
so does my resistance,
and as the water turns to air
my fear opens to spaciousness.
I ask that this be done with ease
and for the greater good.
And I release this with love and trust
and say
so be it.
And so it is.

Let the bowl remain in place until all the water has evaporated. Allow the candle to burn as long as you like.

Items Needed:

  • 2 apples
  • a knife

Get an apple and cut it in half horizontally across the middle. Once you cut it you will see a five pointed star. Rub ½ of the apple over your face or the affected area. Now say:

“Apple, sacred fruit of the Goddess,
with this gift, I do caress the blemish that brought me shame,
I banish now this affliction in your name”

Now get the other apple and cut it vertically from top to bottom. Rub ½ of the apple over your face or affected area as well. Then say:

“I love and accept myself as I am today,
Clear skin I summon to come my way,
By my will – so mote it be,
Three times three times three”

Bury the first apple by a tree, bush or flower that is outside. Bury the second apple by water. If you can’t find a place with water, just bury it anywhere and pour water over it.

Here’s a simple Hoodoo War Water spell to rid yourself of an adversary:

  1. Write your adversary’s name and identifying information on a strip of brown paper.
  2. Place it in a jar and cover it with War Water.
  3. Seal it tight and hide it in a dark, secret place.
  4. Shake the jar periodically.

Once you have succeeded in ridding yourself of your adversary, pour the water and what’s left of the paper out at a crossroads far from your home. Be sure to throw the jar away.

You must take a white egg, and through small holes made in each end, blow forth the contents from the shell. Plug up one end with a little softened beeswax, then fill the shell, using a fine funnel, with sour red wine. Carefully seal the second hole with more wax, and in red ink write upon the surface of the shell the name of that plaguing compulsion you would be rid of.

Take this egg in secret to a place where great rocks cover the ground. Stand there and say these words:

“Hall of blood where life has fled
Walls of bone that close me round
I break thy reign, thy yolk I shed
I cast thy powers to the ground.”

Hurl the egg against a rock so that it shall burst into fragments and the contents be spilt upon the earth. Then gather up the broken bits of shell, take them home, and grind them into a powder in a mortar. This charmed dust should be kept within a small jar, a pinch of it to be placed on the tongue and swallowed whenever further treacherous temptations may appear.

Sometimes spirits attach themselves to an individual rather than merely haunting an area. The spirit may speak through the individual, refusing to leave. Encouraging or forcing them to leave is a shamanic technique. However, should you find yourself dealing with a case of possession without an exorcist in the neighborhood, the following spells may be attempted. In general, you will still need a ritual assistant to help achieve your magickal goals.

Here are some general guidelines:

  • Use intensive cleansing methods to purify the area.
  • In addition to whichever methods are employed ring bells, cymbals and sistra loudly.
  • Invoke benevolent protective spirits, like Archangel Michael, Kwan Yin, and/or Isis.
  • Draw up talismans of protection.
  • Summon the demons demanding that they come forward and depart.
  • Look for signs of departure.
  • Dramatic spirits will let you know they’ve gone. Otherwise use divination techniques to determine whether your methods have been effective or, if not, what further action should be taken.
  • If you’re sure they’ve departed, burn the talismans.
  • Mix a teaspoon of the ashes into cooled boiled spring water. Have the afflicted person drink it.
  • Close the ceremony.

In traditional Chinese belief, what we call demons may actually be a manifestation of excessive Yin energy. This can be neutralized by applying the opposing force: extremely potent yang energy. The following serve as demon/yin repellents:

  • Firecrackers
  • Mirrors
  • The crowing of a rooster
  • Swords

Reading sacred texts and philosophy books is also believed to send malevolent spirits on their merry way because these create order, in which demons (which crave chaos) cannot thrive.

It is also traditionally believed that low-level malevolent spirits can enter the body through food. This is the source of many fairy tales where evil is swallowed. Certain foods guard against this as well as expelling any previously swallowed demons. The most powerful include the following, and can be added to food to expel and also prevent demons:

  • Ginger
  • Garlic

No exorcist available? No friends to help rid you of an unwanted spirit? Do it yourself. Demons reputedly hate the scent of frankincense.

Instructions:

  1. Apply essential oil of frankincense to the crown of the head, the forehead, the back of the neck, the throat, chest, palms of hands and soles of feet. Use individual drops of undiluted essential oil for this purpose.
  2. Now add some essential oil of frankincense to freshly drawn water.
  3. Using a brand new white cloth, bathe all of the above body parts, as well as the genital area.
  4. Repeat Psalm 145 throughout the entire ritual.

This spell is said to help one let go of painful feelings of grief. It is for those times in life when it seems impossible to feel joy again, such as after losing someone close to you.

Items Needed:

  • A smoky quartz gemstone
  • Bowl of water
  • Three tablespoons of sea salt

Begin by holding the stone in your power hand. See your grief in your mind’s eye. Visualize the grief moving from within yourself and through your hand to the stone. As you do this, say:

Banishing stone,
Fill yourself with my grief,
so that I may feel joy again,
So be it, blessed be!

Stirring counterclockwise, mix the sea salt into the bowl of water, then add the smoky quartz stone. Swish the stone around three times in a counterclockwise motion. Leave the stone in the water for a few minutes, then take the stone outside and safely throw it as far as you can away from yourself.

The Lemuria, is an ancient Roman festival in honor of the Lemures, the spirits of dead family members who wander the earth on these three spring nights (May 9, 11, and 13). This is a banishing ritual to ensure that no bad energy and no angry or hungry ghosts can hang around.  A simple version can be found here: The Lemuria.

Note: While this ritual is specific to The Lemuria, I see no reason why it cannot be used anytime this type of banishing is needed.

  • Colors: Black and grey
  • Element: Air
  • Offerings: None. This is a banishing. All carry cymbals, drums, or noisemakers.
  • Daily Meal: Goat meat. Beans.

Altar:

Upon cloth of black and grey set a bowl of beans, nine black candles, a brazier with incense of agrimony and rue, a bottle of good wine, a bowl of clean spring water, a knotted rope, a bowl of asafoetida, and a skull.

Lemuria Invocation

(First the one who has been chosen to do the work of the ritual stands forth, takes the knotted rope from the altar, and unknots it, and throws it into the brazier.)

Call:

Shades of those who have gone before us!
Ghosts and demons, inside us and outside,
Hear us!

Response:

We cast you out!
We drive you before us!

Call:

Begone from house and hearth,
Begone from mind and heart,
Begone from roost and stall,
Begone from field and garden,
Begone from path and road,
Begone from all places
Where you might harry us!
We scatter you before us on the wind!

Response:

We cast you out!
We drive you before us!

(The officiant makes the sign of the ficus towards the west, and all follow in turn. Then the officiant washes their hands in the clear spring water, and brings the bowl to all, who wash in turn. The water is poured out in the libation well. Then the beans are passed around, and all take a handful or a mouthful. Each spits or throws the beans in a different direction.)

Call:

Hace ego mitto,
his redime meque meosque fabis!

Response:

Manes exite paterni!
Manes exite paterni!
Manes exite paterni!

(All walk through the house and around the boundaries of the property, clashing cymbals and beating drums and making noise to drive away all evil spirits. This ritual repeats for three days, only on odd-numbered days, which are luckier than even-numbered days.)

Being A Witch

We should educate people that ‘Witch’ is not evil but ancient and positive. The first time I called myself a ‘Witch’ was the most magical moment of my life.
