Sometimes energy comes back when you banish it. In this case, it may be a good idea to focus the energy into an object and remove it from yourself. Or assassinate it. For the last of the rituals I’ve mentioned this week, I had help from Balrog, who bound the pesky energy so that it wouldn’t bounce between us anymore. We both did our own witchy things. This was mine.
- Target (or dartboard)
- Weapon (or darts)
Step One: Bind the energy to an object. Balrog did that on her end but; if you’re doing it yourself, you can always focus it into the target itself. If you’re working from a distance, you’ll need to create a link between your target and the object, which I did by placing my hand on the target and chanting:
Where X’s energy is bound,
with headstone, bones, and hallowed ground*
there let my weapon’s point be found.
Sikte godt. Skyt godt.
Min pilen er velsignet.
*This energy was bound in a graveyard, so the headstones, bones, and hallowed ground were relevant. You could easily adapt the words for yourself. They don’t need to rhyme.
Step Two: With intent, give the target your all with your weapon of choice. Focus on destroying the unwanted energy like you’re killing your worst enemy.
Step Three: When you feel done, say:
By my [weapon of choice] you have been banished.
By my command, you will not return.
You are not welcome.
