BINDING HAIR MAGICK
Need: strand of hair of the person you desire.
Braid the person's hair into yours and while doing so chant his/her name
and your desire (i.e. love, passion towards you, etc)
This spell should be cast when someone is using negative Magick against you.
Before rushing into this process, make sure that you know that you are being attacked magickally
and by who. This should be checked through Magick, divination, prayer and meditation.
Spool of black ribbon Poppet of the person you intend to bind
Black pouch made of a tough material such as leather Black candle
Chalice of water (rain or river water is best)
Coal, granite or some other powerful stone associated with the element of earth
Musk incense & Censer
Time: Waning moon, noon
Place the rock, water, incense, and candle around you to form the points of a square.
(Rock being diagonal to incense and water being diagonal to candle). Now sit under the
stars and meditate on the impact that this persons negative Magick has had on your life.
Once you have all of the negative recourse in your mind, hold the poppet in you receptive
(left) hand, and slowly, starting at the feet, wrap the poppet in black ribbon, as if it were a mummy.
Be sure to leave no spot exposed. As you wrap, chat the following or similar:
"With (name's) own evil does s/he her/himself bind,
his/her Magick powers s/he shall not find!"
As you chant and wrap, visualize all the negativity from the Magick that this person has cast
flowing into the ribbon that binds the poppet. Once the poppet is totally wrapped, place it in
the pouch and draw it shut. Now proclaim in a loud voice:
"(name) has been bound in the presence of the elements and the gods.
May s/he remain as such until this poppet again sees the light of day. So mote it be!"
Store the pouch with the bound poppet in a dark place. When you decide to un-bind it, take
the pouch into the noon sun of the waxing moon and unwrap the poppet. Visualize the
negativity tied in the ribbon disintegrating in the light of the sun. Say the following or similar:
"(name) is now unbound; a creature of free will in Magick and in heart. Blessed be!"
This is a major spell, one that should be reserved for the most serious problems.
It is a kind of psychic rape so be sure the circumstances justify using Magick this
way, such as for a rapist, a child abuser, or active practitioner of black magic.
You cast it out of necessity and compassion, not in anger.
It is designed to stop the person dead in their tracks, freeze them from doing
harm to themselves or others and give them pause, a clear space in which
positive transformation can occur.
A poppet - any sort of poppet is fine, in the correct gender if possible.
Personalize it in some way to the person you will bind, such as embroidering their
name on it or affixing a picture of them to the poppet's face. I like to use a human
shaped candle with the person's name written on it or carved into the wax.
Two candles, black ones if possible
Black thread (cotton is good, linen is better)
Incense (copal, fumitory, sandalwood and frankincense are good, but use
whatever you can get)
An image of the person, or something connected with them.
If you don't have anything, write their name on a piece of paper.
A healthy, living tree
Gather everything (except the tree) where you will cast the spell.
Light one candle and the incense, cast a circle in your usual way.
Bind the poppet with the thread, wrapping it around and around, making knots
whenever you feel they are necessary. Speak to the person as you do this,
telling them specifically why you are binding them and what you are binding them from.
Leave a long piece of thread hanging from the poppet.
Tie 9 knots in this. Drip molten wax on the bindings, to seal them.
Use wax to seal any body parts you are binding, such as the hands of someone who
beats his wife or kids, the crotch of a sexual predator, or the mouth of someone who
is verbally abusive. Close the circle and ground power.
Leave the poppet on the altar, touching whatever you are using to connect them to it,
until the candle and incense have burned out. Take the poppet and use the thread
to tie it upside-down to a tree - an indoor tree will work as well as an outdoor one.
Make the 5-fold bond, if it is possible to do this with the type of poppet and bindings
you have used (as in the classic tarot card of the Hanged Man). Say:
I ween that I hung on a windy tree,
Hung there for nights full nine;
With the spear I was wounded, and offered I was
To Odin, myself to myself,
On the tree that none may ever know
What root beneath it runs.
This is the transformation part of the spell. Leave the poppet on the tree for nine days.
Recite the poem to the poppet at least once each day, sending the person strong
thoughts about the changes you want them to manifest.
Send them compassion, send them enlightenment.
Hold a mirror up to the poppet while you recite the poem if you want them to 'see'
what they have done. Yell at the poppet if you have anger you need to release.

A binding spell is the act of grasping the negative energy that is propelling a person or thing & stopping it.
In a way, you are negating the unhealthy energy. The most important thing to remember when
conducting a binding spell is that you must control your own violent emotions of hatred or fear.
is Aradia, Queen of Witches. Be sure you are honest in your intentions. Aradia's symbol is the
red garter. If you desire justice call upon Maat, she who balances the scales.
The binding itself is a very simple matter. A puppet can be sewn to represent the malicious person.
Fill it with earth (grave dirt if you can find it), rosemary, sage, a piece of smoky quartz & a piece of
amethyst. Also enclose a piece of the person's fingernails, a lock of hair, or another personal item.
Handwriting can be enclosed if you have nothing else. Photos can be used also. If your intention
at any time during the ritual is to harm that person, remember that you will only bring harm upon
yourself - so be very, very careful.
If you can't do the ritual right away, store the doll (with the head still open) in a white cloth.
During the ritual, you will sew up the head while connecting a psychic link.
Then you will proceed to sew arms & legs of the doll together. You will finish by wrapping the doll
mummy-fashion with a black ribbon. Bury the doll when you have completed the ritual.
A person can also be bound using mental capabilities.
Placing a sample of a person's handwriting & copper tightly in an old bell jar is a way of
stopping malicious gossip. When the danger is over, burn the handwriting.
Write the name of the person , first and last on a piece of paper. Then, write down
everything this person does that you would like them to stop. Wrap the piece of paper in
a piece of tin foil. Place it in the freezer. If you decide you no longer need the spell, toss
the foil in a fire saying:
My wish is no more, This person is free, Undo this spell without hurting thee.
