When one has been involved (either Emotionally, Physically or Spiritually) with another
person it can create an ‘Etheric Link’ that resembles a red cord binding between you.
When the friendship or relationship ends it is often difficult to move on, as you are still
linked to this person. The Cutting of the Cord Spell is ideal in dissolving the bonds
between people allowing them to move on.
You Will Need:
—2 Red Candles, Length of Red Cord
—A photograph of you and your friend or ex (or a picture to represent you both drawn)
—A pair of scissors.
Preparation: Bathe & Cleanse yourself before starting, set out materials, and
Cast a Basic Magickal Circle.
Mark the first Candle with your name and the second Candle with the other person’s name.
Charge the Candles with Anointing Oil, starting from the center moving
outwards (sending energy out), seeing the person named on the Candle as you anoint it.
Take the first Candle in your hand hold it over your Altar Candle visualizing it
being Charged with energy to do your bidding, then present the Candle to the Altar saying:
As the Goddess gave form and substance to our spirits,
I give form and substance to this candle,
As She named us Her children,
I name this Candle as (insert name).
As this Candle is wax and wick,
So it is also flesh and blood, So Mote it be!
Repeat with second Candle.
Sit in meditation and think of the joy this person brought you, picture your favorite memory.
Visualize the link between your hearts as a thick red cord joining you from heart Chakra to heart Chakra.
Tie an end of the cord to each candle, joining you together, as you are joined in spirit.
Place the photo or picture over the center of the cord saying:
As the Goddess links us in Spirit, I link these forms together,
As above, so below, As within, so without!
Again sit in meditation, and think of the reasons you want to cut all ties to this
person, think about the events that have lead up to this decision. Face any doubts
that you may have and see them for what they are, fear. Know in your heart that the
Goddess wants only the best for you and She wants you to want the best for yourself.
When you are ready visualize yourself telling the other that it is over and that
you are moving on, then see yourself turn and walk away - not looking back!
Cut through the Cord that binds you to each other (as well as through the
picture symbolizing your togetherness) and say:
By my free will, with harm to none,
I sever the cord that binds me to (insert name),
As we once chose to share the road we walked,
Now we choose to walk a different path,
Although we still journey to the same destination,
No longer do our steps move in time you are no longer my friend (or
lover), I release the (insert name) from all ties to me
As I am released from thee, As I do will, so mote it be!
Take the candle, 1/2 the cord and 1/2 the picture (the part representing your ex)
in a heatproof bowl, tip a little ‘goodwill incense’ over it all, with a little mentholated spirits,
then as you light it say:
As this smoke rises and drifts away,
So do all my bonds to you… So mote it be!
Place ‘your’ candle on your Altar to burn when you find yourself wishing ‘what if’.
Clean up and Close Circle, then bury everything else except your candle
If you are feeling nervous, threatened, or uneasy say this chant to yourself quietly a couple of times.
Divine Goddess, Goddess Divine, Divine God, God Divine, If evil dwells within this place, Please make it leave my space.
I hope this helps you. )O( Blessed Be.
OOOO~ I love this chant! Might I place it in my Book of Chants? c:
Cord magick requires you to charge each knot with your energy and can be used for any situation you wish. For example, for healing, keep the cord with you till the spell is complete. For negativity, bury the cord or put away after the completion of the spell.
In a quiet place, light two candles of the appropriate color and incense. Place the cord(13 inches) of the appropriate color in the middle of the candles. Tie the knots as follows:
Relax. Make the sign of the pentacle and say:
I Ask That You Bless This Cord
As I perform this rite.
Concentrate on the goal then say:
By the knot of one, the spell is now begun,
By the knot of two, my words are true,
By the knot of three, it comes to me,
By the knot of four, may the spell be strengthened more,
By the knot of five, may the spell come alive,
By the knot of six, the spell is fixed,
By the knot of seven, may the power through me be given,
By the knot of eight, may the power within be great,
By the knot of nine, may the thing I wish for be mine.
In the Name of the Lady
The spell is cast
So Mote It Be
Got fear? Got doubt? Got negative energy lurking about? Get a piece of string, or yarn and tie a knot, bind it on earth and it shall be bound in the higher realm of spiritual living.
Simply say, as you are tying that knot, “I bind these things and I go free!” You can then bury it or burn it.

Did a knot spell for inspiration
among other things. Ended up writing… and not wanting to be on tumblr at all.
There’s gotta be an in-between state somewhere for this, right?
I love tumblr… but writing is me. And… I need to shut up now
#dat knot spell majik.
I can’t even begin to explain my love of knot magic. It’s my go-to system of magic. And the kind that I first learned other than how to make a fucking circle. I just… I just really love knot magic.
*goes to figure out what knot magic is*
(Warning: Simple and generalized summary follows.) It’s pretty much the witch taking a piece of string/ribbon/rope/what-the-fuck-ever and tying knots in it as you mutter your spell. Sometimes that spell is as simple as “I want fucking money” or as pretty and poetic as one might like. Braiding and macrame is often combined in knot magic. You can also add beads, bells, charms, whatever too. It’s similar to a Witch’s Ladder.
I feel like a knot-magic laced bracelet with bells would be nice for personal protection/ward off nasty spirits.
That’s exactly how I wear mine. I actually have braided red ribbon anklets and one bracelet woven with bells that I use for that express purpose. (OK, actually the bracelet is more of a “hey, spirits, back off” and the anklets are laced with other spells too but yes. This exactly.
Made this at work the other day with some of the camp kids and it’s all Fall colors and literally, all I made it for was to have a good semester and season and it’s got drops of pine oil on it. I dunno, pine’s not the most suiting for the season, but it’s my favorite scent. Mark has found something new to get too heavily into. This makes my hand look really weird cause of the perspective.
Yup. You’ve got it. Here’s one of mine:
I switch out the ribbon every August so this one’s due for a change. I ruse the bells though so that protective energy keeps on going. The braiding style and thickness of the bracelet varies on my mood at the time as well. I don’t tend to put scents on mine because I don’t find that necessary and because it messes with any perfume I wear. Ignore my face, by the way, it’s been one of those “I will lay here and do nothing but be on my computer all day long” days.
#things to do some time in my life
A Quick Money Spell…
This spell requires good visualization. Take a green candle and anoint it with cinnamon oil. Take the bill or write on a piece of paper the amount of a bill you owe and who it is to. You will need a candle that can burn for 7 days. Place the paper under the candle. Hold your hands over the candle and say…
“This candle burns to light the way
for the money I need to pay this bill
in a way that harms no one.”
Light the candle and burn patchouli incense. Meditate for about 5 minutes as the candle burns. Visualize yourself writing the check or purchasing the money order for this bill and putting it in the mail. Burn the candle every day around the same
time for 7 days and 15 minutes at a time. Also, burn patchouli incense every day
too with the candle. On the last day, burn the paper with the flame from the candle
and let the candle burn completely out.
To help speed recovery from an illness, write the sick person’s name on a white candle. As you anoint it with 3 drops of oil, visualize healing energy in the form of white light flowing from your hands and into the candle. Recite:
IN THE DIVINE NAME OF THE GODDESS WHO BREATHES LIFE INTO US ALL, I CONSECRATE AND CHARGE THIS CANDLE AS A MAGICKAL TOOL FOR HEALING
Place the candle on top of a photograph of the sick person and then light the wick. As the candle burns down, focus on the person in the photography, willing him/her to be well again. Then recite:
MAGICK MEND AND CANDLE BURN
SICKNESS END, GOOD HEALTH RETURN
Continue to focus and recite until the candle burns out on it’s own, or until you feel like it has been effective. (At this point I suggest taking the remains of the candle, wrapping it in clean white cotton and burying it outside, thereby burying the sickness. You can just bury it though.)
