Kick the Habit Spell Timing: Waning moon You Will Need: cinnamon ginger chili powder charcoal disk a red candle a black candle sage an empty pack of cigarettes (or whatever bad habit you're trying to overcome) matches a bowl Procedure: Prepare your working space however you normally do. If you're going to cast a circle, go ahead. Likewise, if you call upon deities, now would probably be the time to do so. Light the red candle. Say: Red is the color of strength, red is the color of power. I have the strength to kick this habit, day by day, hour by hour. Light the black candle. Say: Black is the color that sends things away, and gives me the strength to kick this today. Working between the two candles, mix the cinnamon, ginger and chili powder together, grinding them until they are powdery. Place the charcoal disc in your bowl, and sprinkle the cinnamon mixture on top of it. Light the charcoal. You should have a nice burning pile of ground herbs now. Slowly tear the cigarette package (without the cellophane) into small pieces. As you tear the paper, close your eyes and visualize the nicotine and tar leaving your body. Picture your lungs changing from black and icky to pink and healthy. Place the torn pieces in the bowl with the burning charcoal. Light a match, and place it in there so that the torn cigarette pack begins to burn as well. It may not stay lit, but try to get it to burn a little bit. Say: I burn what has no control over me. The addiction is gone, and I will be free. Light the sage, and smudge the area around your work space. You are cleansing yourself of the effects of the bad habit and freeing your body and soul from the addiction. Particularly smudge the area over the bowl with the burning cigarette pack in it. Say: Within me is the strength, no doubt, and with sage I cleanse the air without. Place your smudging sage in the bowl as well, and take a moment to reflect. This working is not about the habit itself, but about your rejection of the addiction. Realize that you will physically and psychologically no longer need the habit. Allow everything in the bowl to burn out on its own. If possible, allow the candles to burn out on their own as well. Anti-Smoking Spell (works for other bad habits too) Purpose: Banishing habits Timing: Waning moon You Will Need: 3 drops of green food coloring bottle of ginger ale Procedure: Add 3 drops of green food coloring to a bottle of ginger ale. Recap it securely, put the bottle beneath the lunar beams. Say: _______, is not a part of me, when the moon is dark, I will be freed. Fill in the blank with negative habit being banished. From that night, until the new moon, drink a little of the ginger ale every day, focusing on your intention to change. Remember that breaking bad habits is not just a magickal endeavor, but also a function of your own will and honest desire. Heavy smokers need this one... For a portable amulet that provides extra strength in overcoming a negative habit, begin by finding a breakable representation of it. Completely crush the token beneath your feet. Say aloud: ______ Has no dominion over me. Feel yourself stomping that pattern out of your life. Continue until you feel drained, calm and centered. Gather the remnants and mix them with pine needles and lemon rind. Cautiously place this blend in a portable container. Choose a sturdy container (not cloth) so you do not accidentally cut yourself. Each time you feel tempted to slip back into old tendencies, (like smoking) carefully sprinkle a pinch of the mixture on the ground behind you and walk firmly away, repeat your power phrase to reactivate the Magick. Purification Spell Purpose: If you wish to be free from a habit, thought, idea; if you wish to be rid of past associations, guilt or blockages; take the symbols of that problem - whatever they may be - & throw them onto a raging fire. The fire will consume the symbols & so shall it consume the power they had over you. For the symbols think a moment - if you overeat, take a portion of your favorite food & throw it onto the fire. Smoking, drinking the same. For problems which utilize no concrete objects, draw a symbol or image & burn. Crystal Bad Habit Breaking Spell Use double-terminated crystals to help break old habits and destructive patterns, and to heal addictions. Other beneficial stones include amethyst and kunzite, which interestingly contains lithium, used medicinally to treat depression and bi-polar syndromes. Carry the gemstones in a conjure bag. Lay the stones on or around the body. Use the stones as a focal point for visualization and meditation spells. Eating Disorder Banishing Spell Timing: Waning Moon. You Will Need: essential oil of fennel to olive oil OR infused oil of fennel. 1 small black candle Procedure: Add essential oil of fennel to olive oil or create infused oil of fennel. Dress a small black candle with this oil. Hold the (unlit) candle in your hands and visualize your pain and bad habits flowing from your body into the candle. Try to purge yourself of all negative urges and emotions, at least momentarily. When you feel this has been accomplished, put the candle down and pick up a moonstone in your left hand, and a clear quartz in your right. Bury the candle, not too close to your home. (If it is buried on your property, make it the furthest point from the house.) Place the crystals in a pretty charm bag and keep them with you constantly, cleansing them frequently and recharging when needed. Eucalyptus Banish Bad Habits Spell The eucalyptus tree is believed to possess potent banishing properties. If you have a eucalyptus tree, itís simple to make a decoration. You Will Need: leaves, twigs and loose bark 1 pot water infusion from dried eucalyptus (optional) Procedure: Place leaves, twigs and loose bark into a pot and cover with water. Bring it to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer gently for an hour or more. Otherwise you can create an infusion from dried eucalyptus, available at herbal supply stores. Pour boiling water over the herbs and let them steep until the water cools. Either way, strain out the herbs and add the infusion to your bathwater, to destroy evil ties that bind, whether bad addictions, bad habits or bad company.
