Witches’ Spell: Clear Communication with an Enemy

Eventually, in every person’s life, it becomes necessary to work with someone toward whom we feel nothing but animosity. They may be someone who simply rubs us the wrong way due to things they have said, or even, as with myself, someone who knows nothing about witches but hate us for religious reasons or due to their own agenda. It can grate on your nerves to even have to speak with the person, or look at them, but you are thrown together to solve a problem. You may be forced to work together on a project in class or on the job and yet, coming from two such different places, you may find it hard to communicate ideas because you speak at cross-purposes to one another unintentionally.

Such is life. Whether it is a requirement on the job, or in the classroom witches are not immune to these problems. However, as witches, we do have access to tools that will help us and make it easier for us to function toward a single goal, even with an enemy.

When you have to reach a temporary “cease-fire” with an enemy, here is a spell to help you get through to one another for the duration of the commitment. You will need to have a small vial of Dove’s Blood ink, a piece of parchment, a yellow candle and a cauldron or other fire safe container to allow the candle to burn down completely. When using your cauldron for candle burning, I suggest lining it with tin foil to make clean up easier.

First, cleanse your altar area, prepare yourself with ritual cleansing, deep breathing, grounding and centering, meditation, etc. whatever you normally do before your spell work. Then, make sure you have gathered all the items needed and have them at the ready. As you speak the first portion, visualize your energy and the energy of Maiden, Mother and Crone forming and blending together with your own. As you light the candle, see the energies blended into a single source.

Stand Maiden, Mother, Crone with me
I’ll meld with Holy Trinity
I set this candle now alight
Communication to set right

Turn now to the parchment and write the name of the person you are working with on it with the Dove’s Blood ink. As you stare at the name, visualize their face and think about their personality, visualize the clashes you have shared in the past. As you speak the next verse, see them fading to gray, like old film seen from a distance.

On parchment, I do write the name
To form as one a single frame
To set our minds on common ground
Where understanding may be found

Now, visualize the things you have in common with the person, even small things you have agreed with them about. In your mind let them become stronger and more vibrantly colored. Once you have several examples in mind, take the parchment with the person’s name, and hold it in the flame of the candle to set it alight and set it beside the candle in the cauldron to burn to ash as you speak the next lines.

I burn this name now to release
Make turbulence between us cease
Its smoke will rise into the air
A sense of clarity we’ll share

As you watch the smoke rise from the parchment, feel a sense of calmness toward the person, a new feeling of cooperation toward them and visualize the ease with which you will be able to work with this person toward solving the problem presented. Visualize working together to solve the problem, create the report, fix the issue, and then see yourself walking away with a “win” for the two of you as a team.

Together we will work as one
Until this problem’s work is done
Then when our work meets our accord
Our separate selfdoms be restored

Remember, you need to realize that even as you separate, you can work with this person again, in the future, if you need to do so, and it will not have to be a trial or something to dread.

Communication is the point
Once problem’s solved, we will disjoint
Disband from Holy Trinity
This spell is cast, so mote it be

Allow the candle to burn out completely and retain the stub and ashes from the parchment. Set them aside in a place where you can view them easily and send energy toward them daily until the issue has been completely resolved and then once the need for cooperative communication has ended, take the remains of the spell outside and bury it deep.

Inscribing the candle with runes, sigils, or anointing it with spell oil for communication can help to add layers to your spell. Choose a stone to include in the spell, anoint it with the same oil, and carry it in your pocket when dealing with the person, that way if you feel yourself losing patience you can hold it and focus your energy toward the person. As always, each witch has to determine how to make the spell their own, how to tweak the magick to meet their individual needs.

    • Gerv, what you choose to do is, of course, your choice, however, if you go about cursing everyone you do not get along with, in order to do as you wish, you are going to be very busy over your lifetime preparing and maintaining curses. You will also lose the opportunity to grow as a human being by learning to cooperate in difficult situations with others which will stunt, not only your emotional growth, but also your intellectual growth. Just because you do not get along with someone does not mean that they have nothing to teach you, that you do not have something to learn from that person, or vice versa. Communication is important across the board for opportunities to grow. Even the most horrible person you know has knowledge that you do not in some areas of their previous experience. Why not open the lines of communication and learn what you can from them that is of possible value to your future? Why block yourself from a learning opportunity just because you find the teacher dis-likable, or even detestable? Instead, take what knowledge you can and use it to your own edification.

    • Well, Ravyn, first, thanks for the kind words. Second, I have had a lot of practice over the decades. Third, my spells work for me because I put the energy into it from the minute I conceive the idea until I complete the writing and casting of the spell. You write yours with the same intent and focus and the effects you get should be what you are looking for and isn’t that all that matters? 😉
