Common Witchery: Simple Binding Spells

As previously mentioned, witches and magick have been around for centuries. Many of the older, more well-known spells are so common that no one actually knows where they originated. As such, they tend are passed on by word of mouth, in books and on websites frequently because they are so simple and so easy to use. They may be used as is, or “doctored” up to add additional layers of power to the spell, which is something I, personally, prefer. I suggest that others do so in order to increase the potency of their common spells. It is not necessary, of course, but adding in a few simple elements to a common spell, puts their own special touch on a witches’ spell. As I see it, better to shoot for the moon and hit the stars than to underestimate your needs.

Here are a few of the simpler and better-known spells to bind an enemy and/or sweeten their disposition toward you. Remember to focus on the intent of the spell and the outcome you want to see as you gather the items needed and actually work the spell.

Spell 1: Use a picture of the person, draw an “X” in Bat’s Blood ink over the face, fold it into a small square, freeze it in a mixture of sugar water, and keep it in the back of your freezer as long as you wish.

Spell 2: Write their name on a piece of parchment, draw an “X” or a circle with a line through it over the name in Bat’s Blood ink, freeze it in a mixture of sugar water and keep it in the back of your freezer as long as you wish.

Spell 3: Write the person’s name on a piece of parchment in Bat’s Blood ink,  add a small bit of Solomon Seal Root and a Morning Glory bloom and fold them into the parchment, tie it closed and bury it.

Spell 4: Create a poppet for the person, add in any personal items of theirs you have, hair, nail clippings, saliva (such as contained on a cigarette butt, a lollipop stick, etc) fill the poppet with graveyard dirt, add a pinch or two of black salt, sew it closed, and bury it deep.

To layer on more strength to the spell, you can always use Dragon’s Blood ink for the writing portion in place of the Bat’s Blood ink. Burn an Exorcism incense to pass the parchment, poppet or picture through. Burn a black candle engraved with the appropriate runes, or a sigil you have created for them carved into it and drip black wax over the parchment or picture. Use black ribbon or twine to bind the picture before freezing or burying it. Write a quick spell to read over the item, etc. Always remember that the more thought and care you put into the creation of your spell, the stronger it will be due to the extra intent and focus you are putting into it. As always, this is my way, not the way, since each witch always knows best how to handle their own situations in life.
