You Will Need:
- § A poppet or other symbol of your target—I use corn husk dolls. You should, at the very least, give your poppet arms and a mouth for this spell.
- Paste of some kind—I make mine from flour and water, but you can use whatever kind you want.
- Twine, yarn, string, etc
- A box
Step One: Create your poppet and attach it to your target. This can be done as easily as by saying, “I name you as __________. What I do to you, I do to her/him/ze/them.”
Step Two: Tie your poppet up in twine, making sure to tie its arms down at its sides. Say, “With your actions, you have caused me pain. I put you in confinement so you cannot do so again.”
Step Three: Sew or draw stitches over your poppet’s mouth. Say, “With your words, you have caused me suffering. I sew your lips shut so you cannot do so again.”
Step Four: Dip your poppet in paste and say, “You have evaded the consequences of your actions by luck and forgiveness; but now both are gone. May your punishment stick to you.”
Step Five: Put your poppet in a box and close the lid. “I have locked you away, along with my guilt and compassion. You will not harm me again.”
