Hexing, Cursing, Binding Spells

1. Return to Sender:
Basic Candle Spell and Correspondences
This spell is for anyone who thinks they are deliberately being targeted by someone who is sending out negative energy, intentions, harmful wishes, and such. You don’t have to be 100% sure in this case that a specific person is guilty of this activity, for if they are innocent, the energy will not go to them. This spell will return the negative energy to the one who is guilty of sending it, even if you don’t know who this person is.

The Correspondences:
Day: Tuesday
Hour: 1st/8th hour after sunrise;
3rd/10th hour after sunset
Planet: Mars
Moon Phase: waning, to send away
Color: black
Herbs: fennel, pepper– return to sender; ginger– wards negativity
Oil: Mars Astrological Oil
Incense: sandalwood
Stone: red jasper
Number: 9
Letters: I, R
Symbols: Runes– ‘algiz’, protects and shields; ‘thorn’, neutralizes foes; Odin’s Cross– place this sigil with your name on it over the name of your enemy

Use these correspondences to create your own candle spell that is unique to your situation, using personal effects or objects that are related somehow to your experience. Cast a circle, call your quarters, ground yourself, clearing your mind in order to be able to work the magic. Focus on the energy that you are sending away, and note that you may physically experience a weight being lifted from your body as this negative energy races outward.

2. A Hex
Okay, gray witches, hang onto your pointy black hats; we’re bringing out the big guns. This is the type of magic you have to be strong enough to work so as not to be swallowed alive by its energy. You have to be absolutely 100% sure that you want to do this. You cannot change your mind afterwards and then go whining to the universe because you regret what you did…it will be too late.

Read thoroughly through these words so you fully understand the consequences and what your life will become, should you decide to use this spell.

The Correspondences:
Day: Saturday
Hour: 1st/8th hour after sunrise;
3rd/10th hour after sunset
Planet: Saturn
Color: black
Herbs: tobacco, garlic, arrowroot, morning glory vines (devil’s guts), nightshade and hemlock*– Since nightshade and hemlock are both poisonous, I suggest you look upon their inclusion in this list as an interesting historical footnote– and then work with the nonpoisonous herbs listed.–
Oil/Potions/Powder: Cemetery Dirt, Goofer Dust, Banishing Powder– if this be your intention
Incense: dragon’s blood
Stone: dark stones, black stones, heavy stones whose energy sinks within the earth
Number: 9
Letters: I, R
Symbols: the symbol for Saturn; an inverted pentacle; symbols relating to any of the dark gods/goddesses that you choose to work with; an inverted crucifix

Items needed:
1. A black silk bag
2. A black ribbon, approx. 12-15” long
3. An image of your target and any personal effects from this person that you can get your hands on– the more, the better. Otherwise, you’ll have to settle for a name paper.
4. Two pieces of parchment paper with the written spell upon it– one in the witch’s alphabet
5. Morning glory vines– highly recommended
6. Cobwebs
7. The carcass of a dead spider– it would be even better if you had three

The Spell:
“I hex you, I hex you, I hex you,
From the bowels of the earth;
That my hex shall give birth
To a terrible curse.

I hex you, I hex you, I hex you,
Through the dark powers that be;
That your soul shall never be free
Of this terrible curse.

I hex you, I hex you, I hex you;
So mote it be;
That you will know sadness and sorrow
And continuous misery.”

Cast your circle widdershins and call up the Watchtowers to guard your sacred space, perhaps even leaving a special token at each of the four quarters relating to that element.

Fold the spell paper written in the witches’ alphabet three times, then tie it up with the black ribbon and spit on it. Add this to the black silk bag.

You will take the morning glory vine and bind the image of your target, all the while chanting this portion of the spell:

“I hex you, I hex you, I hex you,
From the bowels of the earth;
That my hex shall give birth
To a terrible curse.”

When you have finished binding the image, spit on it and add it to the black bag.

Add the cobwebs to the bag.

If you have one spider’s carcass, add it to the black bag now while reciting the complete spell– this you can read from the other spell paper. If you have three spider’s carcasses, read one verse for each carcass as you add it to the black bag. Then burn this spell paper in the flames of the black candle. Add the candle wax and ashes to the black bag after it’s cooled down.

Seal this bag by tying it up with black ribbon, tying three knots in the ribbon. You will hang this token in a dark and dingy location, where it shall stay in secret, gathering dust and power and strength. It shall develop a life and intelligence of its own. You shall never open it or set it free; for if you do, you will unleash what’s in this bag on anyone within its reach.

You will spend the rest of your life making sure that this ‘thing’ stays safe in its secret place, that no one shall disturb it and fall prey to the powerful curse it has become.

If you are not prepared to make this kind of commitment–
Do not cast this spell!

3. A Binding
If someone is causing misery and complications in your life and you’d like nothing more than to literally hog-tie them to stop their actions, this is the spell for you. Although you can’t very well physically drag them through the street by their hair and tie them to a tree; you can bind them magically with almost the same effect, and sometimes the magical binding will be an even worse punishment.

The Correspondences:
Day: Saturday
Hour: 1st/8th hour after sunrise; 3rd/10th hour after sunset
Planet: Saturn
Moon Phase: waning or dark moon
Color: black
Herbs: pepper, cloves, cayenne pepper
Oil/Potions/Powder: Four Thieves Vinegar
Incense: patchouli or dragon’s blood

Items needed:
1. Three ribbons each three feet long; two of these ribbons will be black, the third will be a color that corresponds with your target, perhaps the color of their birth stone
2. Your black candle, dressed and ready to burn
3. Your incense

When the time is right and the magical stage has been set, seat yourself comfortably within your sacred space, ground and center.

Holding these ribbons together, as if they were a single ribbon, you are going to tie six knots– the first beginning the binding, and the last sealing it. As you tie these knots, you will recite a chant for each one, all the while retaining focus on your intentions.

The Spell:
First Knot: “I bind you now, from feet to brow.”
Second Knot: “I bind your mind, that your thoughts may be frozen.”
Third Knot: “I bind your actions,
that you may be impotent.”
Fourth Knot: “I bind your tongue, that you may not speak ill of anyone.”
Fifth Knot: “I bind your power, that you may be helpless.”
Sixth Knot: “I bind you now,
from feet to brow.”

When the knots are tied and the spell complete, you can do one of two things with this knotted ribbon: You can burn it in the flame of the black candle and bury the remains of the spell in the earth; or you can put this knotted ribbon in a bag and keep it tucked away in a secret place.

4. Binding Negative Behavior
So you don’t have a problem with an individual in general, you are just having a hard time living with a negative aspect of someone’s behavior. Perhaps what they insist on doing is harmful to themselves or to people around them; either way, it has to stop.

You’re going to bind this person’s behavior, their actions, without actually binding the individual him/herself.

Set the magical stage with the appropriate candles, colors, herbs, stones, etc., to suit the particular situation, individual, and behavior you are addressing.

Items needed:
1. A good length of black ribbon,
at least 3 feet
2. A piece of parchment paper and pen
3. A straight pin
4. Any item(s) you feel may carry the energy of this
situation or the target– place them around the candles

Ground and center yourself in this special place, at this special time; and when you feel ready to begin, take the pen and paper and write out in your own words, to whatever extent you must, a description of the behavior that you are going to bind and the consequences that it’s having on people.

With this deed done, roll the paper up in a tight scroll. Take the black ribbon, and at one end, begin the binding by wrapping the ribbon around the parchment roll– slowly, deliberately, chanting the spell as you go– until the entire ribbon is used up and the scroll is hidden beneath it.

The spell:
“I bind your behavior,
You must do as I say.
It ceases upon
This very day.”

Secure the ribbon with the straight pin.

Keep this scroll hidden in a special bag or box in a safe place. When the negative behavior has ceased, bury it in the earth.

5. Freeze Thy Enemy
When someone is being a real stinker– tearing around and disrupting people’s lives, destroying reputations, creating false and misleading impressions, and otherwise making a total ass of themselves, it’s time to put the brakes on. We’re going to do this by literally containing the essence of this person in a sealed jar of water and freezing it solid. What better way to put a halt to someone’s frenetic destructive energy.

Items needed:
1. A small glass jar with a screw on lid
2. A photo of your target, personal effects, their signature, or a name paper
3. Sharp objects– nails, razor blades, pins and needlesshards of broken glass, etc.

(The last items listed are not absolutely required to cast this spell. They’re just a little something extra to insure that the culprit feels the full brunt of their actions and the repercussions coming their way. It‘s the gray witch coming out in me.)

This is one of those spells I’ve cast in the kitchen, right at the table and near the freezer. It’s a no nonsense “get er’ done” kind of spell that doesn’t require a lot of fancy preparation or staging.

Fill the glass jar with the photo and personal effects for this hard-skulled nitwit. Add the little extra ‘niceties’ to it, one item at a time, possibly voicing your honest opinion of this individual and their actions as you go. Fill the jar about half full of water, maybe a little more, making sure that you’ve left plenty of room for expansion. Screw the lid on good and tight.

Sit the jar in the freezer and slam the door shut.

The deed is done.

6. Feel My Wrath Spell
This spell is used to direct your negative energy onto an enemy. It might be compared to a physical punch in the face, and it will be felt just as keenly.

Items needed:
1. A black candle– taper or votive
2. Personal effects of the target if possible, but a photo or name paper will do
3. Dress the candle with oil and Goofer Dust

You will cast your circle widdershins for this one, and you will call the quarters to guard it. Light the elemental and altar candles so you have plenty of light, as well as an incense of your choice. You’ll want to make sure that you’re going to be comfortable, because you’re going to be here for a while. Place a couple pillows or cushions on the floor, near the altar, if you wish.

Amidst the flickering light, protected within the circle, carve your enemy’s name upon the candle. Place this candle in a cast iron cauldron or another fire-proof container, sitting the image of the target or their name paper beneath it. If you have any personal effects from this individual, place them in the cauldron as well.

Ground and center. You’re going to have to still your mind of outside influences and really concentrate to successfully cast this spell.

Light the black candle.

Focus on every ounce of negative feelings you have for this individual and literally gather it up and send it into the cauldron, where it in turn will be sent to the target.

If you are able to focus and direct this energy successfully, the target will feel it. Wherever this individual may be, they will become abruptly uncomfortable. They may become extremely nervous and paranoid, feeling as though they’re being watched. They may tremble, shiver, or even become nauseous.

The target’s discomfort will continue until the candle has burned out. However, the unnerving effects of what they have experienced will stay with them for quite some time.

The last step to this spell is extremely important:
Dispose of the remnants of this spell off your property. Take a little drive and find a secluded spot to dump the candle wax/ashes. Go home and smudge the room you used to cast this spell.

7. Divide and Conquer
This spell is for the witch who finds herself the victim of ‘pack mentality’. She not only has to deal with a single individual who has decided to make her an enemy, but a group of people, all feeding on each other’s negativity. This is the perfect spell for anyone dealing with a group of bullies.

Items needed:
1. One white candle– pillar or taper
2. Dress this candle with oil, sage, and rosemary
3. Elemental candles set at the quarters
3. A sheet of paper and a pen
4. Scissors

After the preliminaries are set– the circle cast, quarters called, candles and incense lit; sit yourself down in the center of your circle. Take the pen and begin writing the names of the individuals in this group upon this paper. Do not write them in neat orderly rows or columns, write them helter-skelter, all over the paper, upside down and sideways.

Take the scissors and cut the names out so that each name is on an individual piece of paper. Pile these slips of paper on the altar, before the white candle, and recite this spell:

“I break you apart,
I split your heart.
Divided you shall be.
I dissolve your connections,
By the awful, awesome power
Of three times three.”

You will take the name papers and disperse them around the circle, burning one at each of the elements. If you only have two names, then by all means, burn them at opposite quarters. If you have several names, more than four, that’s okay too; just keep going around the circle, burning name papers at each elemental candle you come to. The idea is that you are dispersing their energy.

Gather up the ashes from the name papers and, on a windy day, scatter these ashes to the wind.

To enhance this spell:
1. I’ve substituted the sage and rosemary with something a bit sharper: Banishing Powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper, or Four Thieves Vinegar.

2. If you can wait– and sometimes you can’t– cast this spell on a Tuesday, using the energy of Mars; or on Saturday, using the energy of Saturn.

3. Cast this spell on a waning moon to disperse the group energy.

4. An ulterior action would be to bind them so tightly together that it has the effect of breaking them apart. This opens the door for all kinds of interesting options.

  1. Please please look into this for me, all of this is kinda new to me! Around 16 years ago I went with my step sister on a lil road trip and we stopped at a mall a lady was walking out as I was in and we made serious eye contact she then turns around pulls me to the side told me don’t be frightened that she is psychic! She said first I want to tell you that your husband loves you very much and second someone that I hold dear to my heart wishes the worst on me and does not want me to succeed in life! After all these years I mean as a child I know I had a much harder life then others but I try to stay positive and do my best to keep trying everyone who knows me tells me that no person has bad luck the way I do it’s like I have no problem doing everything all the work to be successful but Everytime I get right there something happens and I’m back to square one it’s like I can see the end of the street but no matter what I can not get to it! Please I feel like I’ve lived a hundred lives and all the pain I have felt and to feel so alone I just don’t know how much longer I can take it I mean it’s taking a huge tole on me! I just want to know a opinion I mean am I crazy or what is going on!

    • No, I don’t think you’re crazy, I think you’re deluged with negative energy, and some of it may even have been created by you over the years. It’s quite common, we all do it inadvertently at various stages of life, depending upon what we’re going through. Start by smudging. Smudge your office space, your home, your vehicle, your locker, and any other space you inhabit. Take cleansing baths. Start burning candles and casting spells to uncross crossed conditions, as well as unblocking path-clearing spells and candles. Good luck! Feel better! Think Positive Energy!

  2. Their trying to Silence me so that what was done and being done can stay Covered Up. I must keep fighting back. They are using a device that sounds like a generator against my body.

  3. I was Injured targeted, husband found dead with all his skin grafted from and all his organs taken. Now their using the neighbor upstairs to run a device that sounds like a generator 24/7, after all my finances were stolen from my Checking account, and my children have been blackmailed and targeted also. What can I use to get my enemies far away from me, get my Family back and recover what was stolen ?

  4. Amythyst Raine,

    Sorry to bother you. Could you help me deal with the interference of others that caused my friendship to be torn apart? Would Slippery Elm help at all? What would you suggest?

    • I thought long and hard about the situation. He does not seem the type to easily be influenced by others. I was the new friend to the group. I was the consistent one when needed and loyal. They seemed to be jealous and started causing discord. It was a mess.

    • Slippery Elm is excellent to stop gossip and thwart liars. If this is part of the “interference” you speak of, it would be perfect.

  5. I’m needing to bind someone from harming a friend and wondering if the binding you posted here would be best? I was considering making a poppet and binding it but I’m new to all of this. Thank you!

    • A poppet made in the image of the target, especially when it’s “named” and baptized, would work perfectly for a binding. Just make sure with this type of magick that your intentions are pure, that the target really does mean harm to your friend, that it’s just not over something you disagree with. If you sincerely believe that your friend is in harms way, do what you have to do to protect them.

  6. My ex has decided to just come back into my life, use and discard my body and emotions and I was looking for a binding spell. I wanted to make sure #3 was the most appropriate for the occasion. I’m tired of him popping up whenever he feels like and then disappear like nothing ever happened.

    • Excuse me…Your ex “decided” to come back into your life? You sound as though you don’t realize that You have a choice here, that You can make a decision about whether you want this individual to come back into your life or not. Spells are okay, and I’m not saying that you don’t need one, or could not successfully use one. But before we resort to spell casting, lets take a good look at the situation and what you could do mundanely to correct it.

      If you’re tired of this man popping up in your life and using you: 1) Cut all ties, and I mean all ties. Sometimes, even without knowing it, we might send mixed signals to an ex… I’m done with you– but it’s okay if you still call and I’ll talk to you, or it’s okay if we still see each other occasionally, or it’s okay for you to interfere in my life. CUT ALL TIES 2) If your ex does not take this finality well, or still tries contacting you, and you’ve exhausted all efforts to stop this, like changing your phone number, blocking him on social sites, etc.; it’s time to get a restraining order and make it official. 3) Stop allowing someone to control you; find your inner strength; know that you are an adult, not a toy for this individual to play with at will.

      First try the mundane way. If you do, and you’ve done all the important things you have to do to keep this individual away and they still wind up in your life…then pull out the magick.

  7. I have a question with binding. If someone is binding you would you have a dream off someone cutting you ooen and takes just your internal organs and sews you up. I also am an angelic being thats been reincarnated.

    • Hello, Jason! I don’t do dream interpretations. The symbolism involved is so unique and personal to every individual that it’s hard to say what a dream like this might mean. It could mean that you’re afraid of showing your true inner-self to most people, or it could mean you watched a slasher movie before bed. Hard to say. I would say that if someone bound you, you would no longer be able to do, say, or indulge in whatever it is that they bound you from. That’s the whole purpose behind a binding.

    I’m Cuban we only do spells for health,wealth,luck,and cleanses. unable to go to Cuba I Was desperate So I got help from a very old Mexican lady we know to help bring me and my hubby together that PEOPLE SPENT YEARS doing voodoo to break us up. She took me to Bury our names on paper, birthdays,pics,and his socks in a grave yard with pins and very colorful ribbons i HEARD it’s for separation. Is it true please help.

    • First, Since you said that you’re Cuban and can’t do this type of spell (a love spell to reunite a couple), I’m trying to wrap my mind around the difference between just doing a love spell on your own, or participating with someone else to do a love spell. In any case, the fact that you participated with this lady means– you did the spell, honey. Second, how do you know that people were doing voodoo to break you up? Most of the time, people involved in this kind of activity are very discreet. And more often than not, when a couple’s relationship is just done and over, it’s just done and over naturally, all on it’s own. Not all relationships are meant to last forever.

      About the spell, I’ve never heard of it. And again, trying to figure out why you would think that someone who did a spell for you (or with you) would be working a spell for the opposite outcome that you intended.

      Beware of paranoia.

  9. There have been numerous people interfering with my friendship with someone, and it seems to stem from jealousy. They have even influenced the person to be mean to me without a cause. The person made the choice of being in the friendship with me. They are so shocked that there is an accusation that I’m the cause when I know for a fact I did nothing. Jealousy is a really ugly thing it seems. Now they’ve caused a major rift. What would you do?

    • It is obvious that they are spell casting because he’s never behaved that way before. I don’t know what to do. I have not done anything to influence him in any way since that is not my style. Help me deal with this please.

    • It sounds like a scene out of “Mean Girls”… without a bigger more complete picture of the situation and the people involved, I can’t really tell you what to do, or what I would do. One big thing to think about ~ Is this person REALLY your friend? If they were, do you think they would be so easily influenced to be mean to you? Food for thought.

  10. I have a situation where I am in a relationship with my children’s father. He has been abusive around our children and I just want to try something new because jail doesn’t work. Spell work is very new to me but it seems like the best way to take my destiny in my own hands. I do not want to hurt him but I sure as hell will not keep feeling this fear with his threats and fear tactics. The whole demanding disrespectful and foolishness has got to stop and after reading above i feel like thing will get better. Just not sure which one to use. I am my own woman and I want him to grow up and be a man that realizes my sacrifices, respect and appreciate me at all times since I am the only woman that has and would tolerate his weaknesses. I hate to think I am a fool for staying I just want him to change his behaviour and work hard to show me he apologizes sincerely.

  11. Hi Amythyst! Is there any spell for binding someone who is doing witchcraft on a love one to make him love her against his will?…He obviously doesn’t feel he is under a love spell. But the signs of his behavior are present. Please help me break this spell!…Thank you 💛

  12. I know a girl at my work that talks about me badly to the bosses and they belive her all the time .I never complain to the bosses but that gets me no where what can I do to make her feel the way she makes me feel .

  13. Found this searching for a spell to bind a thief who broke in our home. I have a small book with some blood from the thief on it. Police have not been able to do anything past took a report & sample. Any help is greatly appreciated.

  14. Hi, is there some particular trick to bind/return to sender someone you don’t know the name of? There is someone or multiple someone’s poisoning cats and dogs every few weeks in this village and they need to be stopped. I have an idea on how to do the spell but would like some extra advice on how to direct it properly, as it is not known who is doing it. Thanks.

    • Absolutely! You can apply a binding to any type of situation like this to stop predators, sex offenders, thieves, etc. (This is an incorrigible thing to do, by the way, it just curdles my blood). Set up your candle spell spot, your tray or dish if you use one; however you personally set up for spell casting. Use a name paper, but instead of the name, which you don’t have, just write The Perpetrator of these crimes, then list the offences. Good luck with your endeavor! I hope you catch the scum bag, and I don’t know where you’re located at, but in my neck of the woods this activity is illegal and you should report it to the authorities.

      • I live on an Croatian island, and it is illegal here too. People have reported it but the perp is still unknown unfortunately. A few different people already told me this has been going on and there’s a notice on the board in the centre of town which says that every 2 weeks pets are poisoned and that it is reported to the police, but that the one(s) who wrote it hope the one who does the disgusting deeds “chokes on his or her own tongue and dies by their own poison” which is a kinda curse by itself. I don’t want to live in fear for the life of my own and other cats, and other animals here. Thanks for your reply! I know I’m quite capable of pulling off such spells but still am insecure sometimes about it, it really helps to be able to talk about it with someone. Thanks for being online with magicstuff ❤

  15. Thank you I had never thought about the divide and conquer spell, I will have to play around with that one when I have 4 candles I don’t mind spending on those fools. I came here bcuz I knew generally the spell I needed to cast which is a long time coming, can hardly believe I actually feel moved to have a curse flair and binding twist to a freezer spell, but I was googling around just seeing if something popped up that tied it all together and I found I think 3 maybe even 4 perfect touches on this spell site. Handy little list, def applying some glass shards .. thank you this page is much better than anything else I’ve clicked on so far

  16. Are there particular moon phases that will enhance these spells? Just curious. Thanks for the insight!

  17. Pleade could you helpme with an effective return to sender spell

  18. I would like a spell for third party to encougage a relationship and stop the bad mouthing want them to stop making it hard, difficult, and sometimes not worth the time and effort. Their must be healing, in all adults

  19. Hi Amethyst, I was looking for a spell to bind the negative behavior of a loved one and I happened to come across your website. I like it! I found the perfect binding spell for negative behavior and will cast it soon. Thanks so much and magical blessings to you!

  20. Contact me please

    • Nope… I know this is a way too late response to this message, but it’s the perfect place to leave this note ~ I do not contact strangers, particularly men, particularly men (or anyone) who contacts me anonymously. As “out there” as I am publicly, this is just common Internet-Safety sense.

  21. what do the correspondents do ?
