The Witch's Spellbook

A spellbook for eclectic witches and other practitioners of the Craft.

To reverse a spell

Use this spell to reverse any harmful magic. This could work to reverse the effects of a spell cast on you or someone else with malicious intent. You can also use this to reverse your own spells (although hopefully you do not use magic to harm). Needed:

  • A taper candle. Use one of a color that represents the spell you wish to break. For example, to break a spell cast out of hate, you could use a red candle. A spell cast out of envy could be reversed with a green candle. If you view magic as being able to be classified as light or dark, you could use a black candle.
  • A glass or bowl about the same height as the candle
  • Water
  • Salt

Cast a circle. Put the candle into the glass or bowl and fill it with water so that it is almost covering the candle; have the water level about a half inch to an inch below the candle’s tip. Sprinkle salt into the water around the candle and say:

With salt, this water is made pure
I give it the power to heal and cure

Imagine the water and salt glowing with a bright light. Perhaps visualize sparks as the salt hits the water. Light the candle and say:

A spell was cast with baneful will
A wicked web was wrongly spun
I take away the harm and ill
I now undo what has been done 

As the candle burns, imagine that the water is emitting positive energies that will help to reverse the spell. Let these energies build up in your circle. When the candle burns to the level of the water and sputters out, take it out of the water and hold it horizontally with both hands. Say:

This harmful spell I now negate,
Return things to their rightful state! 

At the last word, break the candle in half. As if the snapping sound were a thunderclap, visualize the energy in your circle being released in a burst of bright energy like lightning, destroying the effects of the spell you are reversing. If you can, snap the candle into even smaller pieces, breaking it further, making it useless and inconsequential. Close your circle if you are not outdoors and take the bowl or glass of water and the broken candle outside. Bury the candle pieces as well as any wax that dripped into the water. Pour the water in a circle around where the candle is buried. If you are outdoors, do all this within your circle and close it when you are done.
