Healing Spell

Whether your burden is a failed relationship, a difficult
child-hood, a financial loss, a crime, an unrealized dream, or
something else, you can use this spell to help yourself
finally get over it. The god Saturn has dominion over
endings that lead to new beginnings, so this spell is best
cast on a Saturday (Saturn’s day). You will need:
a stick of incense (Any kind will do, but use fumitory
if you are fortunate enough to find it.)
a sheet of paper
a black pen
a piece of black thread or ribbon
a trowel or smallshovel
Identify your problem, and use the black pen to write it on
the paper. Write it as succinctly as possible, in a word or
short phrase such as: my marriage, the fire, my childhood,
the robbery, the accident, the affair, the war, a person’s name,
or what-ever your personal issue is. If you have more than
one matter to get over, write themall down.
The Spell
Get into a magickal mood, and create sacred space around
the area where you will be working. Light the incense, and
raise power. Spend a few minutes looking at what you have
written on the paper. Focus on the fact that these words, and
the events or people they represent, are no longer a part of
you. Roll the paper into a cylinder, and waft it through the
incense smoke. As you do this, say aloud:
Smoke curl, paper furl,
By the power of fumitory,
I expel you from my thoughts.
You have no power over me.
Repeat this as many times as feel necessary to you, and
believe it when you say it.
Next, crumple the paper into a ball. Place it in a doorway,
so that it will be caught between the door and its frame when
the door closes. Slamthe door on the paper, and say aloud,
Door jamb, door slam,
By the power of Janus,
I shut the door on ________.
This chapter of my life is closed!
Use the words that you wrote on your paper to fill in the
blank at the end of that sentence. If slamming the door
repeatedly on the paper would help you to release pent-up
emotions, go ahead and do it.
Remove the ball of paper from the doorway. Tear it into
long strips (or run it through a paper shredder). Gather the
strips into a bundle, and tie it with the black thread or
ribbon. Fold the strips as many times as possible, tying them
with the thread each time. The incense should have finished
burning by then, and you should have a small package of
paper and thread that represents the issue(s) you intend to
get over.
Ground the power that you raised. Toss the bundle in a
corner or near the trash to show yourself how little it now
means to you. Clean up. You could complete this spell
immediately, or you could complete it early the next morning.
That is the best choice, because dawn is an auspicious time
for fresh starts and bright beginnings.
To conclude the spell, retrieve the bundled strips of paper,
and get the trowel. Take them outside, and bury the package
in a place where you frequently walk, such as in your yard or
driveway. Be sure to bury it deeply enough that it is not
likely to be unearthed by rain, animals, or anything else.
If you cannot bury the paper, perhaps because you live in
a city where all ground surfaces are paved, or because it’s
winter and the earth is frozen solid, use your ingenuity to
find a way to complete the spell. One way to do it, provided
your plumbing can handle it, is to flush the bundle down the
Whenever you come to the place where you buried the
bundle, stand on it and say, “I amover it.” Take a step past it
and say, “It is behind me.” Take another step and say, “I am
fine. I am free.” Take a fourth step and say, “I am moving
on.” You can say these affirmations aloud when you’re
alone, but say themmentally when others are present.
Do this every time that you pass over the buried paper.
You will need this little ritual for a while, but in time you will
begin to forget it. That is when your true healing begins,
when you stop needing the ritual. There will later come a
time when you can no longer remember exactly where you
buried the paper, or perhaps even why you buried it. Finally
the whole thing will seem absurd to you, and that is when
you’ll be sure that the spell has fully manifested.
