Releasing Old Love
You were once in love; you believed you
would spend the rest of your life with this person. You gave all you had,
perhaps they did too, but now itís time for an ending, for without it there
can be no new beginning for either of you. Yet, still you find your heart is
linked to theirs, at least to the memory of good times, and intimacies
For this very reason, I dislike love spells
that bind two together. You simply do not know what you do not know, and
when you do know it, either you or they may not feel the same way.
It is time to move on. First and foremost,
always step one: do all you can in the mundane world before beginning spell
work. You may be sabotaging your efforts if your actions, thoughts, and
emotions are not in complete accordance.
So for a start ask yourself the following
1. Do I allow myself to think fondly on
times together? In these times do I allow myself to wish for things to be
the way they used to be?
A wish is a form of prayer, a spell in
and of itself. Are you wishing for something that is not healthy? Are you
wishing for something that isnít meant for you? A wish made in self-pity is
a curse to the sender.
2. Do I visit places I know I may run
Thatís just desperate and uncomfortable
for all involved. Find new places, new memories, and new friends. New life
grows from the devastation of a forest fire; your heart will love again. It
does get better.
3. Do you try to find ways to get back
Again, itís not meant for you. Think,
greater things may lie just around the corner, and you will miss it if you
never move beyond past relationships.
Having said all that, Iím going to have to
trust you will seriously consider each question. I am also going to assume
that you are ready for the next step; the spell.
Ties that Bind Spell
- You will need:
- A white candle
- Pin or something you can carve into
- Bay leaf,
- Rosemary Essential oil
- Mortar and Pestle
Inscribe the personís name on the candle
with a pin or athame.
Write in black the personís name on the bay
leaf. Crush the leaf with mortar and pestle.
Dress candle. That means to rub oil onto
candle. This is a banishing spell. You will rub only downward strokes. For a
blessing you rub only upward strokes. Then roll candle in crushed bay leaf.
This spell should be done beginning on a
full moon. As the moon wanes, so will your affinity for the other person.
Note: Do not use a candle in a jar. A
votive candle works well. Burn for one hour each day at sunset until candle
is consumed or until the moon is again full. NEVER blow out the candle, only
snuff, as you are also snuffing out any lingering feelings between the two
As you burn the candle each day, visualize
the candle diminishing as your feelings for the other person diminish in
Each time upon lighting, say the following
I release you this day in each and every
I banish you from my mind, and from my heart you stay,
I send you peace to begin again,
Whatís past is past, weíve come to our end.
No more Iíll grieve the loss of you,
My lifeís my own, I begin anew.
(Say part below 3x)
By the power of three times three,
As I will it, so mote it be.
