You will need:
- A piece of lightweight cardboard
- Writing/drawing utensils
- Black yarn
- A fireplace, bonfire, cauldron, or other safe place to burn the cardboard
Cast a strong protective circle around yourself and all participants before you begin.
Take a piece of light-weight cardboard and draw images and write words on it to represent the evils that you wish to bind. For example, draw a man with an X crossing out his heart to show it is closed, write words like “Greed”, “Irresponsibility”, “Disrespect”, etc. Then crumple the cardboard up into a loose ball.
Take a piece of black yarn and wind it around the cardboard twenty one times. With each time you loop the string around the cardboard, say one line of the following chant:
With the thread of the crimes of your own design
I bind your evil three times seven times.
I bind you from Behind, I bind you from Before
That you’ll hurt my people never ever more
I bind you from the Left, I bind you from the Right
I bind you by Day And I bind you by Night.
I bind you from Below, I bind you from Above
That you may ever know the laws of Life and Love
I bind you with your own good conscience within
And so let this magic unfold and spin
Tie off the ends of the yarn with three sturdy knots to seal the spell. When done with this, burn the wrapped images and words in a loud, strong, crackling fire. Chant these words until it is thoroughly burned:
Goddess of darkest night
Send our troubles all to flight
Burn them in thy sacred fires
And replace them with our hearts’ desires!
Once the image is burned and all negativity removed, do a positive visualization to replace it. For example, visualize people laughing and dancing in rainbows, etc.
