Satuday Spellwork: Break A Curse

In general, most of us go our entire lives without encountering anyone who has the skill set or level of motivation required to hex or curse us. In fact, if things are going badly for you, the odds are good that you’re NOT cursed or hexed, but simply (1) having a run of bad luck or (2) making really shitty life choices.

However, it’s always POSSIBLE that bad things in your life are a result of some sort of magical attack. Before you go assuming this is the case, though, ask yourself a few questions:

  • Did you seriously piss someone off in some way?
  • If so, does that person have the level of magical ability to curse or hex you?
  • Is a hex or curse absolutely the ONLY possible explanation for the bad things in your life?

If the answer to ALL THREE is “yes,” then you MIGHT be cursed. And if that’s the case, then you need to do something about it. That’s where this handy dandy spell comes in.

Hawthorns = awesome stabbities.

I have a habit of, when I’m out roaming the woods, collecting up interesting things. Rocks, sticks, weird plants, animal bones, and other assorted forest detritus always come home with me. In particular, I’m a fan of things that are – as Byron Ballard says – stabbity. Pokey, pointy, sharp stuff is one of my favorite categories, and I’ve discovered that hawthorns are especially useful.

This spell will turn negative energy back towards the person who sent it your way. You’ll need a collection of nine hawthorns, and a nice, ripe juicy orange.

Start by writing the name of the person who has hexed you on the orange – if you don’t know who it is, you can simply write You who have cursed me, or something along those lines.

Speak directly to the orange, saying things like You have no power over me, you will not harm me. I send back to you that what you have sent to me, and you work is no longer effective. I return it back to you nine times nine.

As you do this, slowly and methodically use the thorns to pierce the skin of the orange, inserting each of them and pulling them back out. Basically, you’ll use each thorn to stab the orange nine times – nine times nine. Once you have all nine thorns stuck into the orange nine times, leave them in place.

Dispose of the orange somewhere far from your home – you can bury it, throw it into running water, or even hide it near the home of the person who hexed you. After that, forget about them and move on.
