How and When to Use a Binding Spell

Updated on February 9, 2020

Born in deepest Cornwall and now living in wild Wales, Bev has been practising her personal brand of witchcraft for years and years.

There are two common types of binding spell: one is to bind two people together in a love spell; the other is to bind or restrict someone’s actions. Binding spells must always be used with caution and with a great deal of thought beforehand.

Binding Lovers Together: Why You Shouldn’t

I would never recommend using a spell to bind two people together. It can cause untold misery and complications later on down the line. The one exception is when a couple embark on a ‘year and a day’ hand-fasting where the ritual is specific and the period is limited. The couple can renew their vow year on year if they wish.

A friend of mine decided that it really was a good idea to work binding magic on a man she had been dating for a little over three months. She was convinced he was the One. She wanted to make sure that they stayed together forever. She explained to me that it was important that nothing should come between them. A few years later, when it was patently obvious that they weren’t suited, they were caught up in a legal wrangle over property. They could not escape each other. Eventually, she remembered the binding, and had to work several ‘detangling’ spells before they could part permanently.

Someone else I heard of decided to kindly work a binding on her son and new daughter-in-law on the occasion of their marriage. It caused chaos. Her easy-going, gentle son became controlling and jealous. His young wife was heartbroken that her husband so openly distrusted her to the point that he tracked her whereabouts constantly. He couldn’t bear to have her out of his sight. The divorce was horrendous, but thankfully they hadn’t had any children.

Please be aware, I don’t provide binding spells for lovers. Too risky, and I have a reputation to maintain.

Binding a Bully, Tormentor, or Controller

There is nothing worse than when someone decides to target you, frighten you or control you. You feel frustrated, powerless, even terrified. It may be someone at work, your relationship partner, even a parental figure. So there are certain circumstances where a binding spell is absolutely the right thing to do. Examples are:

  • A work colleague who needles and picks fault constantly, making life a misery.
  • A teenage bully is tormenting your child.
  • An ex boyfriend or girlfriend who is unable to move on and tries to harass you into getting back with them.
  • A partner who tries to control your every move - a binding spell can spell can be used to restrict them while you extricate yourself from the relationship.
  • A stalker or neighbor who spies on you.
  • Anyone who tries to harm you or your kin.
  • Someone who attempts to put you out of business.

When Not to Work a Binding

There are circumstances when you shouldn’t resort to binding someone.

  • When you are angry.
  • When you want revenge.
  • When the person has mental health issues.
  • When someone is acting out of character.
  • If you are overreacting.
  • If you are a young teenager.
  • When you are breaking the law.

How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.

— Wayne Dyer

Think About a Less Powerful Spell or Action

There are other magickal techniques which are not as powerful as a binding spell. They place the power back in your hands rather than sending out negativity to the perpetrator. Remember that there may be a karmic price to pay by binding someone. Here are a few alternative suggestions.

  • Work a protection spell.
  • Carry a protective crystal, charm, or talisman.
  • Empower the person being bullied by teaching them a positive mental outlook.
  • Use the Feng Shui technique of placing a mirror in your home to reflect negative vibrations right back to their sender. You can also carry a small hand mirror in your purse to do the same thing. If that’s not practical, then visualize yourself surrounded by a reflective bubble.
  • Work a neutralizing spell on the other person, rather than a binding. It takes all the oomph out of their negative intentions. Imagine watching an angry person scream and shout, they are quite frightening at first, but then you begin to notice how idiotic their antics are and you see the funny side. Their ire has turned into powerlessness.

It Has to Be a Binding

So you’ve read right through the article and you still think that a binding spell is the answer. Before you begin…

Binding Spell Precautions

In most cases, wait several weeks before casting a binding spell. Explore all other non-magickal options first. For instance, in the case of a school bully, talk to the teaching staff. Or don’t - very often children are able to work things out between themselves. An over-zealous parent jumping in with a bit of witchcraft can make things worse and might possibly hurt your child even more.

Do a basic risk assessment. To work out all the possible consequences of a binding, really stretch yourself to visualize the possible negative effects. It might be a good idea if you are adept at tarot, to do a quick reading on the outcome. Another tool that is helpful in a risk assessment is a mind-map. You can use it to map out consequences of a binding, both on yourself, the person you are binding. and also if you are casting the spell on behalf of someone else. No one can cover all the bases but give it a good try.

Be sure in your heart that you are doing this for good. Your intention must be pure. You don’t want any physical or mental harm to come to this person; you simply want their vindictive behavior toward you to cease.

Don’t do a binding spell if the other person is familiar with magick. If they realize what you are doing, they will send it straight back at you. Find another way.

Risks of Working Magick When You are Angry

Magick is worked via your feelings and emotions. Therefore it is imperative you come at this from a place of peace. You can't feel angry, stressed, depressed, or guilty. If you try to case a spell when you are in the grip of negative emotions, then you risk those feelings being magnified. Universal energy which works on the like-attracts-like principle will simply deliver you more circumstances that will cause you to feel this way. So be calm, be relaxed. Do not wish the person any harm whatsoever. Your thoughts and feelings should center around a calm inner core of peace and good will.

How To Cast a Binding Spell

Items Required

An object to represent a human figure: doll, clothes-pin, sturdy twig, wooden spoon, cardboard cut-out… you get the idea. It’s a bonus if the surface is suitable to write a name on. This object is called a ‘poppet’ or ‘effigy’. You can find out more about using poppets here: Sympathetic Magic and Working with Poppets.

String, cord, ribbon, strong thread, 12 - 24 inches, depending on the object being used. The exact measurement isn’t important, it just needs to be long enough to be wrapped around the poppet several times.

Working the Binding Ritual

If you wish, you can cast a circle, but it’s not necessary.

Write the name of the person you wish to bind somewhere on the poppet. If the surface is unsuitable, don’t worry, simply say, “I name you, *their name*.”

Sit for a moment and work through some emotions. This is what gives energy to the spell. You can do this any way you like as long as you are peaceful within your center. One suggestion is that you deliberately think of the negative effect this person has on you. Conjure up the pain or fear they cause you. But only for a moment or two. Then quickly imagine the relief if they stopped. Know with certainty how free you will feel once they stop their bulling or stalking, or whatever it is. Get that emotion of relief and happiness whooshing up and down your body. Try to hold it there while you perform the spell and speak the words.

If you are right-handed, hold the poppet in your left hand with the cord in your right. Place the end of the cord against the effigy, hold in place with your left thumb and begin to wind the cord very slowly around the poppet.

Speak, whisper, or shout these words as you wind the cord:

*Their name* you gotta stop
Your cruel behavior, I’ve had enough
No longer will you cause me trouble
Or Karma upon you will be treble
As I bind you, I am free
You never more bother me.

Repeat the verse three times, feeling those happy, relieved, peaceful feelings and then say once:

As I intend, so must it be.

Don’t worry if you get a word wrong. It really doesn’t matter. It’s all about your feelings, intention, and the energy behind them. Tuck the end of the cord into one of the turns. Breathe, relax, and the spell is done.

Put the poppet away somewhere safe. One day, you might want to unwind the cord, make up a little neutral unbinding spell, and dispose of the doll carefully.

Please ask any questions you have regarding binding spells.

Questions & Answers

  • Could you do a binding spell on somebody who doesn't live near you and they don't know you; they never met you but you love them deeply and wish to have a life together?

    No, absolutely not. It would be a singularly unwise and dangerous thing to do. Imagine the unintended consequences on your mental health when it doesn't work out (because it won't). You cannot force such things and you should never bind two people together by a spell. Binding spells are strong magic and hard to reverse.

  • Will this binding spell keep a bad person away from my husband and family? Also, what if you don’t know their name but have an item of theirs?

    You need a banishing spell to get rid of them from your life. If the item is small or a small piece can be cut from it, you can incorporate it into the banishing and the rest can be burned or disposed of.

    This article will help you: https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/Witchcraft-...

  • Regarding a binding spell, can a poppet be a paper with the person's name on it?

    Yes it can. Anything will work if it is meaningful to you and you can make the connection between the image/representation and the person.

  • I have a narcissist ex who is making my life hell, would a binding spell be a good option?

    Yes, but a banishing spell might be better in order to get him out of your life altogether. But, frankly, you should also report him to the police.

  • There's a person targeting me with a binding spell because they are vindictive and angry that I simply don't want to know them. Is there a way to undo or protect yourself from a binding spell?

    When a person knows they are being targeted by witchcraft, there are two ways to go about it. Either believe that the spell can have no effect and laugh it off, or believe it to your very core and allow it to affect your life. Which would you choose? In either case, it's a good idea to arm yourself with psychic protection. There are some suggestions in this article:

      Hello BeginnerWitch, I think a binding would work well here, as long as you are prepared to remove the spell once the 'good' behavior is established. And that will take as long as it takes.

      I would also consider a non-magical course of action, such as getting someone to talk to this person to explain how much anguish they are causing with their outbursts.

      Good luck.

      hi!

      there is someone i know, who gets angry very often (and it's becoming more and more often.) anyway, when this person gets angry they target not only me, but the rest of my family. we've tried many other things and it's not like i can avoid this person because i have contact with this person every single day. (he is actually family)

      for the last month and a half, I've been contemplating a binding spell, but i want to check out other magickal options too. for example a protection spell. problem is i can't find a lot about protection spells, either on this website or elsewhere.

      what would you suggest? a binding spell or something else?

      sorry for being vague, i didn't want to get to personal.

      thanks!

      Hi Hazelme71, absolutely not. That's exactly what I warn against in the article.

      Wouldn't you rather have someone be with you because they WANT to be with you, and not because they are forced to?

      Then what happens when you've had enough? What if you are unable to undo the spell? Two lives ruined.

      i started to see a man in a friends with benefit agreement but after 4 months, we are spending more time with each other and when he gets drunk he says the L word, we go out and do what couples do. I feel that he does love me cause i have tried to stop seeing him and he will not let go. I don't want to get hurt that's why i push him away. So i want for that love he feels grow into being in love with me. can i bind him to have what he feels grow into falling in love with me and not want to desire any other woman?

      Hi Mellanthe, by blocking, I mean simply preventing her from continuing the behavior towards you that you don't like. It's more of a protection spell for you so won't affect her in any negative way, apart from making her think twice about undermining you. As you said, it's about setting boundaries.

      I can't give you this spell because it's not my situation, so you will have to work it out for yourself. Think about what you want to achieve. Journal about it, if it helps. When you have pinpointed what you want to stop, then think about how to work such a spell. If you set your intention clearly, then you are not going to deviate from it.

      If you feel uncomfortable about it, then don't do it.

      Dear Bev, thank you so much for your reply.

      When you say a blocking spell, what do you mean? Blocking out negative energies or intentions from them, rather than the person? Does blocking potentially actions count as blocking the person? Or does one block the person? Does blocking actions Do you have any examples on this site to use as a rough template? No worries if there isn't.

      I read the link; A release spell sounds harsh (they don't have to go away forever, it'd just be nice not to feel negative energy and get on with them, I'm also prepared to do some work on myself to make me feel more resilient and positive so I can be a positive influence on them. A progressive spell sounds nice, though is it possible to write one about other people and the life you visualise for them? And would it refer to them as you, or they etc.I read about neutralising spells above but couldn't find them easily on the site; are those similar?

      Also, I'm still trying to think of where I stand on 'interfering' with others' lives and karmic consequences; I don't want to draw negative energy to this person or myself (or the rest of the group) but to assert healthy boundaries, have them get on with their lives and maybe some protection or something to make me feel empowered so they don't bother me.

      Also, I'm worried about releasing magic without realising, for example by thinking things about this person I'm quite an anxious person, so the way I dealt with past trauma was just by intensely wishing the person would spend less time with our friends, or go away entirely (or occasionally harm, but really just so they don't bother me or can understand how they hurt me). Those may be reflexive thoughts but they can be intense, but I don't want to send that energy out to that person. Is there anything I need to do to ensure I don't cause problems with thoughts like that.

      thanks!

      Hi mellanthe, I completely see where you are coming from. I think what you need is a minor blocking spell - I would recommend a written spell. You'll have to work on the wording/chant yourself.

      Another thing you could try is placing a charm on a piece of jewelry and giving it to your boyfriend, or even wearing it yourself.

      I, personally, would go for the written spell because it keeps you in control.

      Dear Bev,

      I've got a weird thing, it's probably pretty mild by most standards.

      I'm with a person who has a large but close mixed gender friendship group, several of which have paired up within the past coouple of years, including ourselves. I have no concerns about faithfulness, but one of his female friends is overbearing, dominates conversation and makes us newest girlfriends in the group feel left out by dwelling on old times and in-jokes or talking to her friends (our partners) in a way that isn't inclusive. When you've been through it, you know there are ways people talk about things that include you, and ways that don't.

      She's not touchy feely in the 'I'm stealing your man' sense, but her actions towards myself and the other new girlfriends in the group remind me of an abusive ex-friend of mine who found all sorts of ways to remind you subtly that they are closer, have a history, see each other often etc. My previous abuse makes me fear I'm disliked or being frozen out so her actions make me feel hurt. But she's someone who my partner sees a lot, and I'll see quite frequently too.

      I get the impression she is unhappy (quitting her job, threatening to move) and as the only remaining singleton I don't feel she's adjusted to even her perpetually single mates pairing up, she's clinging to them and perhaps a little resentful or jealous that they have grown up and have other responsibilities (like partners or kids) to fill their time and have partners to be close to. Perhaps she's holding on too tightly because she doesn't have a partnership of her own. I'm not even sure that she's aware that she's sending negative vibes or making people feel unwelcome and I don't think she's a bad person necessarily. I'd really like to get to know her.

      I don't wish her any harm; quite the opposite. I want her to be fulfilled and happy, go abroad if she wants to, and to move on with their life, find love if she wants it, get a job she loves, and still be friends with my partner and the others but without the clinging or subtle trying to put new girlfriends in their place. I want for those friendships to have healthy boundaries and for the rest of us to be respected, because it's hard for me to be happy he spends time with her if she treats me like that.

      I don't want to banish her as a person physically (though she's threatened to move abroad!), she is important to the man I love and therefore to myself. But I wonder if It might help to banish the part of her that is overbearing, smothering, clingy, competitive, and non-inclusive so that she and I can grow a healthy friendship so that she doesn't do things to hurt me or the other ladies. And that she can stop holding on too tight to her friendships and find new friends and hobbies and happiness whilst she lets her friends be happy and respects their relationships. I'd like her to let go and live her life, and let he friends live theirs.

      I just want to be able to deal with her in my life, and in my partner's life without feeling that she's trying to exclude me. Are there any spells or intentions you can recommend?

      Hi Amy, I'm not going to tell you how to a perform a love binding spell because they are dangerous. You can end up causing untold mental health problems (to yourself and them) by attempting to bind someone to you. Spells like this are very, very difficult to undo. I strongly advise that you don't do it. If the person truly loves you, they will stay with you... and that's the best kind of spell.

      Lindsey, you can use any words or phrasing that work best for you. The stronger it is, the better. The more you can feel it, the more likely the spell will be successful.

      The banishing spell goes:

      Your bad behavior is going to cease

      Thoughts of me, you will release

      My feelings for you are as stone

      I command: you leave me alone.

      So substitute names and alternative pronouns where necessary, or change it up completely.

      Hi Susana,

      Two things... do another binding and make it as powerful as can be. Or failing that, do a banishing spell to get rid of him from your life. No point him being around if he is setting a bad example and treating you like dirt.

      The spell may weaken because you are giving him more leeway. In other words, it's working but you are loosening it by making concessions. It might be a good idea to do strengthen your spells on a daily basis by visualization or using Switchwords (see link below) to keep it thrumming on full power.

      Take all the non-magical steps you can in order to lessen his influence on your son. Restrict access. Tell him he will need a lawyer. Don't interact with him unless strictly necessary and then always be pleasant.

      Dear Bev, first of all thank you for all your advices. Remember I wasn't too sure if the binding spell did work and than I made it again and I think it really worked. But in this last 2/3 days he is being more aggressive again and I'm thinking if the spell can lose power for some reason? He is very jealous of me and my son and when he thinks that my son loves me more he treats me really bad in front of him. I just want him to give good exemples to our son but it's not easy.

      Hi Maria, sorry you are having to deal with this.

      I don't think a binding spell is the answer here. If it were me, I would probably try a series of written spells, each a little different. For example, one to increase my personal power, one to encourage myself to ignore him, another to suppress his urge to goad, perhaps one to make myself be 'invisible', i.e. off his radar., etc. You can design them yourself as you see fit.

      Perform them over a week or so, to give each one time to 'bed in'. Repeat as necessary.

      Hi, very informative article. I have an interesting question. I'm sorry for the length of this, but I want to give you as much context as possible to answer the question.

      I am new to witchcraft (roughly a year). I've started a new job and have discovered a huge culture gap... I already decided before going in I that I would only be here 6 months, and I don't want to quit before then. I already knew it wouldn't be a perfect culture fit. I've done my best to keep on the down low and be kind and respectful and just work my butt off and most of my co-workers think very highly of me because of my work ethic, and we can banter and everything is fine, as frustrating as things might be for me. But one of my co workers in particular has intentionally not been respecting my boundaries. There are certain topics I simply won't talk about in the workplace and he can make ANY conversation about those things. I've told him multiple times not to. Recently he pushed me a little too far, and I said things to him about myself that are very personal. H kept pushing and pushing until I was shouting. After talking with some of my other coworkers, I discovered I'm not the only one he does this too, and have come to believe he is trying to provoke people into fighting with him. I've told my supervisor about the situation, apologized for my behavior and assured him it won't happen again. The provoker has told my co-workers about my personal information and frankly I expected nothing less, but the info may affect how the others think of me, and I'm already starting to see it (ex, suddenly they have been scrutinizing my work and finding very minor things to complain about, but won't tell me in person). I thought about performing a binding spell on the person that started this, but I figure it's a bit late for that as I am already experiencing the consequences of letting him get to me. What was once a decent job that is helping me further my career goals is now a toxic environment where I have to work very closely with the provoker everyday...

      So now the question... Can I perform a binding spell on myself? Something that protects me from myself basically, like letting my rage get out of control again, and prevents me from letting out any more of my secrets? I don't want to be helpless, but I also don't want to hurt myself even more. I know I can't control the actions of others, but perhaps I can get some help controlling my own.

      Thank you very much for any feedback

      Hi Thato, so let me get this right, you've cast a spell to bind yourself to someone who is not interested in you?

      This is why people with very little experience should not be messing around with spells.

      I advise you to reverse it as soon as possible as you could do harm to both of you. He won't come back, but the long-term effects could be damaging.

      I think if it were my mother, I'd be considering the same course of action.

      Use the instructions given above and just think it through first. Try to work out the possible consequences and be prepared to 'undo' the binding if it turns out not to be the case.

      You might try putting some psychic protection around your family first.

      My mom's being attacked with black magick by someone very envious of her. My mom doesn't know anything about these things but it look so clear that it was indeed a curse of some sort. Would it be okay if I'm the one to do this binding spell?? Also please help.. i don't know what else to do. The doctors aren't any help and her situations keep getting worse

      Rose, I can categorically say with the utmost confidence that you haven't been bound by your family. At least not in a magical way.

      You must begin to direct your life in the way you wish it to go. You are not a victim of anything or anyone.

      I'd like some advice please even someone's number who can help me.

      I've realised recently that I'vebeen bound since I was a teenager by my family and their friends. I'm still stunned by this level of evil , to me it's akin to taking someone's life - slowly.

      All my life l blamed myself for my failure - at everything! I had no friends, little money, made the wrong choices it seemed, couldn't sustain a relationship.

      I've been betrayed constantly & felt suicidal depression - with no relief in sight. Meanwhile my sisters all married, had children, money, friends ,traveled, & enjoyed crafts etc.

      I have had some relief from going to church, but but l feel like it's never going to end & i know that I don't deserve it.

      Hello Druantia, I would work the binding ritual as described in the article. Just change the wording to fit your situation - insert the family member's name instead of 'me' and 'I'.

      There's another one that can put distance between the two people: https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/Witch-Sigil... It's down toward the bottom of the page.

      The key is to be completely confident that the spells will work. May not happen straight away, so give it a little time and, meanwhile, try to persuade your family member not to focus on their tormentor.

      Hi Bev G,

      If there were a person who was causing great stress and anxiety because of jealousy and vindictivness to a member of your family. A person who could potentially destroy that family members reputation and career through lies. How would you deal with a situation like that??

      This is quite an article. I have not dabbled in the witchcraft area of dpells before, but it sounds quite interesting.

      I am glad to see you point out all the dangers of creating a binding spell first. I will definitely not be starting out with one such as this.

      Great read.

      Thank you, Michael. I am sure the binding technique is common to many cultures and faiths. It bothers me quite a lot that people think they can do this kind of thing without thinking it through. I suppose I am trying to make readers consider all the options and only use binding as a very last resort. Blessings in return.

      Bev G, I enjoyed your article on binding. I have a Christian background and remember all of the uses of "binding", and it was usually used to bind evil forces. It is interesting to see how it can be applied within witchcraft as compared to what remember in the church. Binding seems to point out how exasperating life can be sometimes trying to live at peace with this world. Blessings!

      Agreed, Mr Happy. If you have to bind someone to you, that love isn't worth having. xx

      I don't know about the UK but in Romania people pay thousands and thousand of euros for things like this: binding spells, love spells, love potions, etc. I personally think that's hurting (as in desperation). Either someone loves You, or they don't. If we have to go out and snare people into a relationship, that's just wrong in my books but hey: "to each their own".

      I wouldn't do it for myself and I wouldn't do it for others and it is not about the consequences. It is about mingling into the Intent of others. I do not go there because as You wrote: "There is nothing worse than when someone decides to target you, frighten you or control you."

      Well, I wish You are having a lovely day - all the very best to You and thank You for your indepth article. May Wakan Tanka walk with You.
