So today I finally got around to doing the cleansing spell I offered to do for a friend of mine. Leaving the specifics out for privacy reasons, the goal of the spell was to remove negative influences from someones life.
To do so, I went with a spell I discovered through http://littlefaerylizzy.tumblr.com/ and changed it a bit to suit my purpose.
I used two black candles, in which I carved the name of the person I wished to be freed from the negative influences and then anointed the candles with frankincense essential oil.
Before putting the candles into the candle holders, I put some chili powder into those, to banish the negative influences once and for all, after they’ve been removed.
For incense I used Rosemary, for its cleansing and healing properties. (Rosemary is my Sage, if you will.)
Next came three crystals, each representing a negative influence I wished to be removed from this person’s life. The influence to be removed was written onto each crystal separately (no, I will not tell you which ones I went for) with marker, then the crystals were tied with string and tied to the candles.
After this the candles were lit, and I also asked a deity I work with for help with this spell and the outcome (but that’s completely personal preference on my part).
Then there was a lot of sitting and chanting my intend on my part. Not quite as long as I suspected it would take though, since ‘help’ apparently translates into turning a simple candle set up into flaming torches.
So yes, I would definitely suggest to take similar precautions as I have done in this set up, and place your candles on fire resistant ground!
