- 13 candles
- someone to watch 13 candles to make sure nothing catches fire
Light 13 candles in either the room most used by your family or the room most frequented by the unwanted spirit. Announce that the spirit is only allowed to stay until the last of the candles has burned out or been extinguished. You can:
- let the candles burn for an allotted amount of time (my family does three hours from midnight to 3am) and put them out.
- let the candles burn down on their own.
Blow out each candle with the intent of ‘blowing the spirit away’. After blowing out the last candle, say “You are not welcome”, wait for the wax to cool, and clean up the candles.
