Witchcraft: How to Cast a Banishing Spell

  • Author:

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

What is a banishing spell? In essence, it’s an energetic instruction to prevent someone intruding on your space or taking action to harm you. Banishing spells must be used with great caution. If in doubt, do not attempt one. The alternative to working a banishing spell on an individual is to place a protective barrier around yourself to prevent ill-harm reaching you. In this article, I’ll teach you a basic banishing ritual, a ‘wearing-off’ spell, and also a barrier spell. Most importantly, I’ll show you how to neutralize a banishing spell.


Why Banishing Spells Are Sometimes Necessary

A banishing spell should be seen as a last resort. When you have no other options. For example, if you are being physically abused, then the harshest banishing spell is justified. If someone is bullying you at work or at school, then a time-restricted, wearing-off spell might be the best idea. This is a spell that gradually loses its power over time. By the time it’s gone, the bully will have given up, or better still, grown up and realized that their behavior was uncalled for.

You have to decide if the risk (and there are risks) is worth it. The situation could be resolved by other means, such as talking to the other person, seeking help from someone in charge, or simply by the passing of time. Should none of those be helpful, then a banishing spell might be what you need.

Binding Spells

People sometimes mix up banishing spells with binding spells. Probably because we often use a cord or binding in order to impose a restriction on someone.

There are two kinds of binding spells. One is to prevent someone causing harm or damage to others or themselves. They are not usually very effective.

The other kind is to bind two people together. These can be quite strong, hence you should never, ever use a binding spell to tie someone to you. They are just the worst things. Often they involve tying two dolls, or poppets to each other. The trouble is, cutting the physical bindings does not negate the spell and you could find yourself in a situation you cannot easily get out of. Avoid these spells; they cause more harm than good. Instead, use a spell to attract love without being specific about the person. If they are the right one for you, they’ll be mutually attracted to you anyway.

Pick the Right Time

Your spell will have more power if you work in harmony with the moon cycles. Banishing spells should be cast during a waning (shrinking) moon. Even better is during the dark moon (three days before the moon reappears as a thin crescent. These are the times when you should focus on anything you want gone from your life, such as people, debt, illness, negativity.

The best day of the week for this kind of magick is Saturday, but you can also use a Tuesday, if your spell is to fight off a bully or aggressor.

How to Work a Simple Banishing Ritual

I’m keeping this deliberately simple, but you can adapt it anyway you want.


  • A stick or dowel about six inches (15 cm) long. It doesn’t have to be precise. You could even use a wooden spoon.
  • String or cord at least 24 inches (60 cm) long. Again, you don’t need to measure it.
  • A small piece of paper and a pen.


  • Black candle (must be new)
  • Tourmaline or other black crystal.

It’s up to you if you want to cast a circle before performing this ritual. There are instructions how to do so here: How To Begin Witchcraft - Spells. Look for the section headed ‘Basic Circle Casting’.

  • The tourmaline should be placed on the table before you. It serves as protection and will absorb any unwanted negative vibes that might be swirling around.
  • Sit quietly and begin to deliberately feel the emotion attached to your intention to work this spell. It can be fear or empowerment. It’s important to raise your emotion because that’s how spells work. Think about what this person has done to you. Imagine how you will feel when they stop. Hold the feelings. This is also your chance to change your mind about casting the spell.
  • If using a candle, light it now, continuing to hold the emotion. Imagine the flame being fed by your feelings.
  • Write their name on the paper.
  • Wrap the paper around the stick.
  • Slowly begin to twine the string around the paper and stick, binding it tightly.
  • As you wind the cord, say the following three times:

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

  • Each time you say the words, ramp up the emotion and energy. Especially when you say ‘I command’. You have to mean it.
  • Then say:

As I speak it, so must it be.

  • Tuck the end of the cord in securely.
  • Drop your shoulders and relax. Sit, allowing all the tension to leave your body and seep into the floor and down into the earth. It’s done. Close your circle. Place the candle somewhere safe to burn out. Put the stick somewhere where you know you can find it in the future.
Use a wooden spoon as a 'poppet' in a banishing spell.

Use a wooden spoon as a 'poppet' in a banishing spell.

How to Neutralize a Banishing Spell

There are times when a banishing spell should be removed. For instance, if you discover that the person has changed their ways or that they are in trouble and you are able to help them. Remove the banishing spell quickly and easily, thus:

  • Get the stick.
  • Find the loose end of the cord.
  • Slowly unwind the cord and say three times:

You have changed and so have I
Our past issues have now gone by
I release you, **their name** from this spell
Be free and always treat me well.

  • Then:

As I speak, so it must be.

  • Dispose of the components; bury, burn, or trash them.

Note, you can use this method, even if you have used a different spell initially. Just reverse the actions you took and say the words above.

Wearing-off Spell

You can cast a spell which has a built in time limit. So you could restrict someone for a desired length of time and then the spell will simply wear off and fade away no there will be no need for neutralization.

Use the same basic method as described above in the Simple Banishing Ritual, but you will change the words slightly to:

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
Yet after a month, this spell will diminish
And all of our problems will be finished.

Repeat three times and add,

As I speak, so must it be.

Follow the rest of the spell as given. You can change the length of time to a week or a year if you wish.

Sphere of protection

Sphere of protection

Easy Protection Spell

As an alternative to a banishing spell, you can also place a protection spell around yourself. This will keep bullies and abusers away, yet allow love and friendship in.

There’s no need to cast a circle first as this spell is, in effect a protective circle. In fact it is a sphere. It’s worth recharging this spell on a monthly basis.

  • Sit down somewhere quiet. On the floor if you can. Close your eyes. Relax and start to build a feeling of peace and safety within. Breathe and relax. Think about how it feels to be safe, comfortable and invincible. Maybe you could think back to your childhood, to a time when no-one could hurt you because your parents or guardian kept you safe. If that doesn’t work, just imagine how good it is to feel protected. Let your thoughts wander but keep bringing them back to this theme of safety.
  • Now visualize the feelings forming a ball of shimmering light in your solar plexus. Imagine the ball getting bigger and moving outside of you. It keeps getting bigger until you are completely enveloped in this sphere of shining, shimmering light.
  • Say:

Sphere of light, I bid you stay
Protect me, shield me, come what may
Keep harm, hurt, and hate at bay
Yet love comes in every day.

  • Repeat three times. Then say once,

As I speak it, so must it be.

  • Allow the shimmering light to fade, but know that the sphere of protection remains around you at all times.

It bears repeating that if you think you are in danger, or things are getting out of hand, you must seek help.

Questions & Answers

Question: I’m an 8 months student of left-hand dragon rouge. My master said I am forbidden to associate and have a relationship with non-crafters. We cast prosperity spells but I haven’t harvested an accurate amount. I am in so much distress right now. I am not comfortable with sex magick. It’s taking toll on my body. I feel I am forced and held. Fame and prosperity is all I wish. I’m so financially wrecked at the moment, it tortures me. What can I do?

Answer: You've become involved in a dangerous cult. Leave straight away. This is not right for you, so extricate yourself. If you have any problems or if anyone tries to stop you, go to the police. There are other legitimate ways for you to reach your goals. Also remember that the cult cannot work magick against you if you don't let them.

Question: I started hearing these three voices. I hear them everywhere I go. Am I a victim of black magic?

Answer: No, you aren't a victim of black magic. It does sound like you have some kind of neurological issue. Please consult your doctor or qualified medical practitioner as soon as possible.

Question: The man I live with is very disrespectful to my daughter and he's always rude. I don't want him around any longer. Will a banishing spell work for him to just go away and leave us alone?

Answer: Well, if I were you, I'd try non-magical ways first. If you are unhappy with him, then it's probably the same for him. So explain how you feel and ask him to leave. Make sure you have all your support systems in place and that you can afford to live, etc. If he resists, then it's time for a spell, but be prepared for it to unfold over time. It may not be instant.

Question: Can you do the banishing spell on behalf of someone else or is it just to banish from oneself?

Answer: It's inadvisable to work it for someone else as there could be unforeseen consequences. The better alternative is to cast a protection spell over them. Use the example given in the article but change the wording to include the person's name.

Question: My sister who is 16 years old, can see demons and spirits and they are not friendly, they leave marks on her when she sleeps. Will a protection spell be enough?

Answer: Your first action is to have a night-time camera set up to see what's happening while your sister is asleep. Your sister should also keep a journal detailing her experiences. When you have gathered this information it will help you decide what to do next. Meanwhile, there's no harm in her performing a protection ritual.

These are not terribly strong ones, and I am hesitant about suggestion anything more powerful until you have done the camera/journaling things. Give one or two a try anyway

Question: Can I do a protection spell on behalf of my toddler?

Answer: Yes, you can. However, you need to know that you can't protect your child from everything. Toddlers need to experience the consequences of their actions in order to learn. It's not your job to prevent your child from falling over; it's your job to pick them up afterward. But putting a general protection spell to keep them from harm is always a good idea.

Question: What if you’re unable to visualise because you have aphantasia - no minds eye? Can you still practice magic?

Answer: Yes, you just need an alternative way to access emotions. Whatever works for you.

Question: I believe someone has cursed me with chronic stomach pain, drug addiction, and sexual impotence. My husband has been unfaithful to me, giving himself a guilt-free consciousness due to my illness and all. What is going on? I truly believe my in-laws have put a curse on me, our relationship, and our immediate family. What do I do?

Answer: Firstly, know that you haven't been cursed. It sounds as though you are caught up in negative cycles of belief and self-harm. Seek help from a trusted health professional and get legal advice if you want a divorce.

If you truly want to work some spells to set you back on the right path, look for positive things to bring into your life, such as increased self-esteem, confidence, etc.

Question: I'm bullied at work, I am seeking a different location, but the manager is preventing me from obtaining a different position. I have applied and am being blocked. What can I do differently to be transferred to a new location to which I am qualified to work?

Answer: There's no harm in working a banishing spell, but perhaps a sigil might be more effective. A sigil is a symbol of your desire. You use it in conjunction with visualization to achieve the outcome you want.

The sigil spell to use is the one at the bottom of the page, where you use small circles drawn on a piece of paper to represent you and the manager. Over a few days, you gradually move the two circles apart. As it's you who is wanting to move away, make sure you see yourself as the second circle moving apart from the other. It looks something like this:




And keep going, over the course of seven days. For it to work, you have to have complete faith and knowing that it will happen. Even when your manager is being obnoxious to you, keep the faith that you will be moved to another job. And, of course, in practical terms, you have to take the actual steps, like applying for other positions; otherwise it is less likely to happen.

Anyway, read the whole article so you understand how intention and emotion are key to the process.

Question: I would like to have some help getting my husband back. I know he still has feelings for me but he's been dating somebody for years even though we've been separated. We are still married. Any suggestions?

Answer: Casting a spell is not the answer. Talking to him and telling him how you feel is the way to go. You cannot manipulate someone by using magic. It causes all kinds of conflicts and bad outcomes.

Question: Before I found your page on banishing spells, I had already created a poppet (to bind) and a witch's jar. My young children were abused by their father and I had sole custody. The judicial system has granted his request to reintegrate. Would it be prudent to do a spell as well? Or do I trust in the magick already done?

Answer: Personally, I would do another one. I would do all the magic I could to keep an abuser away. I have a page on binding as well:

You can also put protection around your home, such as obsidian and circle rituals.

Question: You said a banishing spell can also be done for illness, debts, etc. For a person we use his/her name... how to go about it when we have to perform it for illness?

Answer: I didn't say that I mentioned in passing that the waning moon is the best time to cast a spell to get rid of something from your life. The spells above are for distancing oneself from a person.

It is better to work a positive healing spell for illness -- invite good health during the waxing moon. If that doesn't work, then you can try a different one to rid yourself of the problem -- dismiss something you don't want during the waning moon.

I haven't written up any specific spells for healing but you can try the techniques here:

The spells you construct yourself are always more powerful than using someone else's.

Question: Can you write several names on the paper when casting a banishing spell?

Answer: You can write as many as you like. Or, if it's easier, you can repeat the incantation with each name singly.

Question: Can I cast this binding spell on behalf of a family member who is being oppressed by a colleague?

Answer: Yes you can but it's not a binding spell, it's a banishing spell. They are slightly different. A banishing spell keeps someone away, which may not be appropriate in this case because your relation has to work with this person. A binding spell may be better because it 'ties their hands'. In other words, they can be nearby but they can't cause mischief.

I have a binding spell here:

Question: I was told that a spell of blockages was performed on me using witchcraft. What would be the best spell for me to use to clear the blockages and keep them away?

Answer: You would probably benefit from a cleansing spell followed by a protection ritual. I don't have a recommendation for a cleansing spell, but you can find one pretty easily.

Question: I caused someone some hurt many years ago. I would like to communicate with them to try and put right some of the hurt I caused. All I want is an open communication opportunity. Is this something that a spell could help with or is it not a good idea?

Answer: This is a great opportunity to use a spell for good. I would suggest a written spell and perhaps Switchwords.

Question: I can hear see and feel spirits, good and bad. I need this banishing spell to last for a very long time and I was wondering if there is another way to execute a banishing spell? Something a little easier to do, as I have children.

Answer: This is the simplest banishing spell I know. If you read through it a couple of times, you will see how easy it is. It can be repeated monthly during the waning moon for a lasting effect.

Question: How do I break a strong curse? Over the last eight years, I've had a heart problem out of nowhere. Unable to work, study, or find a part-time job. My house is falling apart. The truck is old and broken. My finances in a mess. What can I do?

Answer: If you feel cursed, it's because you believe it. And your belief is the strongest curse there is. Start by improving what you can, one step at a time. So the easiest thing is to create a detailed budget. Allocate what funds you have in the smallest amounts. Pay off your smallest debt first, then put an amount equal to that payment towards the next debt plus its normal payment. Repeat. Focus on your health by walking a short distance every single day. Increase the distance gradually. Do one small repair on your house. Then do another. Investigate jobs that you could do from home. Analyze your skills - you must have some. What could you do that people might be happy to pay for. You can turn your life around if you just make up your mind to do so.

Question: I'm doing a course called Advanced Wicca, and I have a question of which I am slightly unsure. The question says "Can love spells be used to banish, if so how?" Any advice would be gratefully received.

Answer: Well your course may teach differently but to me, a love spell is cast to attract, whereas a banishing spell is used to repel. There may well be variations that your organization uses that I don't know about.

Question: What are the risks or negative effects of a banishing spell?

Answer: It really depends on the individual situation. It's easy to cast a banishing spell in a fit of ill-feeling, but if that person has just made a mistake, or if it was a misunderstanding then they don't deserve it, and the spell-caster may lose a good friendship or relationship. Just imagine that a banishing spell sends someone to a place far away from you and ask yourself if that is really a good idea.

Question: My ex-husband is attempting to take custody of our children. He has already alienated my eldest from me. My peace is gone, I live in anxiety now waiting for the court date. I’ve tried co-parenting and being a good person and he just steps on me any chance he can. I cannot handle him anymore. What would you recommend for this type of situation? Binding or banishing?

Answer: I think neither of those would be appropriate. While I understand your situation, you are both parents of your children, therefore you need to get along and cooperate for their sake. So I would construct some kind of harmony spell, so that you are both on the same side, rather than coming at this as adversaries.

Question: My son-in-law's ex-girlfriend practices the craft and has done something so that my daughter is in a constant state of anxiety and is even scared to leave her house. This woman has also tried beating my daughter up, running her off the road, and other horrendous things. My daughter and son-in-law have been to the authorities, moved, transferred schools, yet that woman is following them, and now lives near them and is in the same school. What can I possibly do to help my daughter?

Answer: You can try a counter spell by using the one described above. Or you can cast a binding spell to render her desire for revenge harmless. That might work better in this case. More information on binding spells here:

You don't need to be a witch to cast a spell, you just have to believe that it can work. You and your family may also benefit from the suggestions in this article:

Question: I am an older witch, and love your instructive illuminating articles, but have to ask...why would not casting a circle be a good idea before any work done, especially binding or banishing?

Answer: It's personal preference whether to cast a circle or not. Some spells are so short, such as sigils or written spells that there is no need, especially if the spell you are doing is wholly good-intentioned. I agree, if I were doing a full on binding or banishing, I would cast a circle. Some witches who work their spells in the same place all the time might argue that their protective space is just about permanent.

Question: Do I change the words for my banishing spell if I am trying to protect my sister and nephew from domestic violence?

Answer: You change the words to suit the situation. It's easy to play around with them to make them more appropriate... and it's more effective when the words are your own. For instance, you would use 'them' instead of 'me'. If you can write your own from scratch, that's even better. Do a banishing first, followed by a protection spell.

Having said all that, please don't rely on spells alone; make sure there are real protective measures in place.

Question: Can I use this protective sphere around my children to be safe every day? Or is there a longer lasting one for protection from harm?

Answer: You can use this as often as you feel necessary. However, you can never 100% protect your children, and neither should you try. There's an old saying, "It's not your job to prevent your child from falling over; it's your job to pick them up and kiss them better."

You can use the protection sphere to keep your children, family, home and car relatively safe, but it is not a steel bubble.

There are more techniques that might be useful here:

Question: I cast a banishing spell and the person I was trying to banish contacted me seconds after my candle burnt out, does this mean my spell failed?

Answer: Hard to know. Usually, these things take some time to work and the person backs off gradually. They wouldn't disappear from your life immediately. Wait and see what happens over the next few weeks.

Question: I directed a spell towards my sister and niece. Thought of them with the light surrounding both of them. What are your thoughts on modifying the protection spell in regards to them?

Answer: Sounds fine to me. You aren't attempting to change their behavior, and you did it with the highest intentions. I wouldn't modify it at all.

Question: Some family members hurt me and my son in a horrendous way, and they keep doing stuff to hurt us, will the protection spell help me in this situation?

Answer: It might do, though you will probably have to repeat it weekly. You should also bind or banish these people individually.

Question: A friend of mine is becoming involved in a relationship that will have him involved in drug usage. I need a banishment spell for the person who is going to take him down that road. Will a banishment spell work in this case?

Answer: It is not your job to 'save' your friend. He must make his own choices. Casting a banishing spell on the other person will be an attempt to manipulate two other people. I strongly advise against it.

Question: I'm in the middle of getting a divorce from my ex-husband but he is opposing it. He is an abusive, quick-tempered person. What spell do I need to do for this type of narcissistic and abusive person?

Answer: Personally, I would do a binding spell first in order to restrict his behavior while the divorce is ongoing. Then once it is done, I'd do the banishing spell above in order to get him out of my life completely.

You can find details of binding spells here:

Question: I have a new manager at my place of employment. She has only been here for 2 months and has been harassing and bullying me since day one. She came in and told me she wants my office and she is taking it. I have been here for 29 years and have had the office for 14 of those years. What spell can I use to stop her from taking the office and harassing me?

Answer: After speaking to the next tier management and expressing your concerns, you could consider a binding spell. A binding spell restricts the person and their behavior, rather than banishes them completely. However, a banishing spell may cause her to leave the company altogether, so it's your choice. The banishing spell is detailed in the article above. Feel free to adapt it for your purposes.

More information on binding spells here:

Question: Are there spells which get rid of pests (cockroaches and so on) and if so, would a banishing spell work?

Answer: You should just try it. You can't do any harm by practicing on your cockroaches so give it a go.

Hello Yayasola, what a terrible situation to be in. Yes, as long as all preventative measures are taken on a mundane level, go ahead and do the strongest banishing spell you can muster. Repeat as often as feels right.

yayasola on September 08, 2020:

Hi and thank you for writing this. Can I do this to protect my parents from my brother? He is manipulative, controlling and psychotic. My parents and myself included are terrified of him. He has threatened to kill my parents, to burn their house down, and other just as ugly threats. Cops do nothing. He has been sent to the psych ward, to jail, and he always ends up getting out because they all believe he is ok and nothing is wrong with him. I want him to leave my parents alone, as well as us. He is a psychotic drug addict. Please help me. He is constantly threatening my parents and has now started to try and do it to me as well. He believes he is God and that he owns the whole world (his words not mine). Can I do this banishing spell for my parents and myself? We are lost as to what to do. Please help us as my parents are terrified of him and for their life. Thank you.

Ivyblueamber on August 24, 2020:

Thank you so much

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on August 24, 2020:

Just get rid of it Ivy. Flush it, shred it, burn it outside. Scribble all over it and bury it. Whatever you want to do. Just so long as no one else will ever read it. x

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on August 24, 2020:

It's always better to create your own spell, Ivy. The format is given in the link I gave you. Just play around with the words. Think about what you want to achieve. So something along the lines of,

"*Son'sname*, it's the time for you to go, your home is waiting for you to show. You'e always welcome to come and see us, but now you must really leave us."

That's just off the top of my head. I'm sure you could do much better if you give it some thought.

Ivyblueamber on August 24, 2020:

And destroying it would be by fire? Will this cause any kind of harm?

Ivyblueamber on August 24, 2020:

Would I have to write my own spell? What would I include in it?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on August 24, 2020:

Hi there, Ivy, my instinct says that this is a situation that should be dealt with without using any kind of spell. This is your boyfriend's responsibility.

However, if your boyfriend is refusing to cooperate, then perhaps you could devise some kind of 'discomfort spell'. Nothing major, just a kind of gentle nudge.

I recommend using a written spell (make sure you destroy it completely). More info here:

Ivyblueamber on August 24, 2020:

Hello how are you doing? I have a question about what would be the best way to handle this situation I have. Let me start off with my boyfriends Son moved in with us during the pandemic. His mom throw him out because I work at a hospital. Than my boyfriend told me later on that his son was going to stay with us until the pandemic was over with than go back to his mom.

He thinks he can run my home or have say In my relationship with his father. My boyfriend just goes with it. His son staying here has put stress on our relationship. My boyfriend has changed a little bit. He works a lot but he spends most of his time with his son. While I just sit in the couch. Anyways his son is 21 just started a new job has a car now. I just want his son to move out. So my life can go back to the way it was. I am not trying to be or sound selfish. But it’s like I have a 3 person in my relationship. I understand my boyfriend is trying to make up for lost time. His son moved out when he was 16 because he didn’t like that me and my daughter moved in to the house 5 years ago. Anyways I was wondering if a banishing spell would be best to handle this situation. I don’t want to hurt my boyfriends relationship with his son. I just want him to move out and get his own place. Any advice on the best way to handle this. Please if you could help I would appreciate it. Thanks

Hi Moth,

The main risk is that a banishing spell is too strong a spell, when a lesser one would suffice. It's too easy to cast a banishing spell in a fit of pique. You could end up losing someone important to you.

That's why I have provided slightly 'softer' spells to deal with those situations when you just need a break.

moth on August 01, 2020:

You dont mention the risks of doing a banishing spell... could you please mention them?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on June 14, 2020:

Hi Teresa, it would be best if you established that this is actually the case before embarking on a course of action.

No one can learn witchcraft or how to control others from movies, so perhaps you may be assuming that she has more influence than she has.

If you are convinced, then use either the spell given above to get her out of your lives, or a binding spell to prevent her pushing her tentacles toward you and your son:

Teresa on June 13, 2020:

After months of dealing with some issues, I've begun to sense that someone is using magic to do harm to my son. That this person has no gifts or abilities (other than watching "The Craft" too many times, only hatred, so is using others to do dark work on her behalf. I did not want to believe this, but now I do. How does one scatter or eliminate such a work?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on June 07, 2020:

Good news. Glad it's working.

Nick on June 07, 2020:

Thanks so much for this! A friend of mine was having devilish/demonic spirits in their house bothering them, so i sent them the link to this. I just asked them how it went and they said it's been working very well. Thanks again!

Hi ElleKittycat, I would be more inclined to work a 'peace and quiet' ritual. You could do a written spell - they are very easy.

The problem of noise is going to occur wherever you live (if you are in the same building as other people). What you should probably aim for is for your neighbor to keep his music within certain hours. And to maybe restrict it to an hour a day. There has to be some compromise on both sides.

Here's the link to working written spells:

ElleKittycat on April 17, 2020:

HI. I am on disability and am having trouble finding safe, quiet secure housing. I found a place where someone agreed to rent me their basement for an affordable amount, however, they lied about how quiet it is. That is, I am noise sensitive and we discussed this at length before I moved in. It seems, however, that he likes to listen to "concerts" on his TV, which I can both hear and feel downstairs. Discussions about this have led to him saying he wouldn't do this, but still doing it. I need neither the noise nor the conflict. Can i perform some sort of binding spell or noise banishing spell. I have little experience. Thank you

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 10, 2020:

Yes, witcheywomen. Establish the source of the harassment before doing anything else. You cannot fight an unknown enemy. A banishing spell would be a waste of energy and possibly damaging if you have no idea who or what your target is.

I am a new witch, (having casted 1 circle), and I am being BADLY harassed, (either by spirits or people), I can't determine which it is. Anyways I'm in a remote area where I cannot connect with other witches for guidance and much needed support. I need to cast a banishing spell, (and would like to use my blood because of the severity of the problem. Its mind and life altering). I am worried it might be above my skill level. Should I try this or should I take a different route? Simply having patience is not a working solution and I need immediate action. Can you lend some advice or guidance on how to proceed? Thank you

I will choose a protection spell. Thank you!

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on February 05, 2020:

You need either a protection spell or a binding spell. Unless you really want her to leave the company, in which case, go for a banishing spell. You could even design your own 'leave your job and go elsewhere' spell.

How to get a toxic manipulative co-worker to stop her calculated attack toward me?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on January 05, 2020:

Hi Brittany, only you can decide if this would be an appropriate course of action.

You might consider having couples' counselling in order to best provide the parenting your child will need. If your ex refuses to attend then that will help you make up your mind because he clearly isn't interested in his baby's future.

Brittany Jenean on January 05, 2020:

I have tried breaking things off with the father of my unborn child before we discovered the pregnancy. I've tried to break things off since discovering I was carrying a child. The truth is that he lies regularly, he is irresponsible, continues to partake in drugs, has used me financially in the past, and steals from those who help him. The more time I have distanced myself from him, the more clearly I have seen these things. In this instance, would casting a banishing spell be an ideal route to take? I fear that he will inevitably leave our child in the dust, involve them in things that no child should be a part of, or use our child for financial/personal gain.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on November 25, 2019:

Hi Adrien, then I don't think you should be casting a banishing spell. It would be better to do a protections spell and have a read of these articles:

adrienbrown84 on November 24, 2019:

Ok all of this sounds great and all but what if your in a specific situation where you dont know the perons name but they live near you. Can i just visualize them??? Cant get thier stuff either...

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on November 13, 2019:

Hi Susana, you're doing it fine. Don't let doubt creep in at all. If there's no change, do the same spell again during the last few days of this moon cycle. And maintain confidence. Meanwhile make yourself be a 'gray rock' when around him.

Susana on November 12, 2019:

Hi again Dear Bev, I already did the binding spell, how many time should I wait? If he continues with toxic behavior should I try again or just wait? I've already bought some crystals for protection but I'm a beginner I don't know if I'm doing things right. I really believe that my life is going to be better and I really want to follow this path because I believe is going to help me.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on November 10, 2019:

Hi Susana, you need a binding spell, rather than a banishing spell. And you must focus on his behavior when you write the spell.

More information here:

Susana on November 09, 2019:

Dear Bev, my son's father, who lives with us, is a narcisist manipulator. He completely destroid my self esteem these last few years, but now that I finally discover who he really was by lots of researching and study I have to protect me and my son from his toxic behavior. I Don't want to banish him totally because I want my son to grow with a father and I want them to have a good relationship but I know if we leave each other he will destroy my image and make himself a victim and try to be with our son 50% of the time, even if it' s not the better choice for him, he's only 3. I just want to know if there is a spell to protect us both from toxic attack, or maybe a spell that inhibit his behavior with us? Thank you.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on November 03, 2019:

Thank you Melia, for sharing your experience. I'm going to keep a note of your message, if you don't mind? It would be helpful to reference it when I get all those questions from young people who think it's a good idea to cast love spells.

Meanwhile, I've recently completed another article that may be helpful to you - just what you need, in fact:

Good luck.

Melia on November 03, 2019:

Dear Bev,

When I was younger I cast a love spell on someone and I didn’t know the consequences of my actions. Now I want to break that spell how could I do so I don’t want any more bad karma coming to me and I want to give back this person his freedom so we can both continue our path without any restrictions. Recently someone told me that I have blockages due to a love spell I cast on the wrong person I though it didn’t work at that time because instead of keeping us together we broke up. I really regret doing that and I have learned that everyone has free will and we cannot go against that because it brings serious consequences. I do need your help. Thank you for your time

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on August 09, 2019:

Hi Saba, sorry I didn't see this as it hit the spam filter.

You can change the words of any spell to suit your purposes.

Good luck.

Saba340 on July 16, 2019:

Thanks Bev. I have one more question . Do the words in the spell need to be the same as you mentioned above ‘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’

Or can it be changed to something more soecifix . Like leave and and my husbhand alone . Or stop contqcting us contacting

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on July 15, 2019:

Hi Saba,

I'd suggest that you try the 'wearing off spell' as described above. Substitute three months for 'a month'. Hopefully the interference will reduce.

Do your best not to focus on them in your own thoughts. Remember that pushing against them is resistance and what you resist, persists. Don't give them your energy. Reduce their impact on your thoughts and your life by reducing their importance to you.

Good luck.

Saba340 on July 15, 2019:

Hi , my husband is completely obsessed with his mother and sister to the extent that he will believe them no matter what. They enjoy all the perks he offers and give nothing in return.

Also they interfere in our marriage ans the sister keeps coming to stay with us withiur even informing me as she feels its her birthright to swing by whenever she wants

I really want them to stay as away from us as possible. What can i do ? I also want my husband to listen more to me than to them . Can you help please ?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on July 08, 2019:

Try it, Kris and see if it works. However, you must get into the 'zone' where you are absolutely positive that it will work.

Also, it's possible that it will take a little time. In other words, contact may diminish gradually.

One other thing - if he's bothering you, then inform him that you will tell his gf what's happening if he doesn't stop.

Then go ahead and live your life; see who you want, and take no notice of your ex.

Kris10 on July 08, 2019:

Will this work to get my ex to leave me alone? Like he has a gf and I’m kinda living my life but I feel like I can’t find anyone or start something with someone bcuz my fear of him finding out and going crazy. I just want him to leave me alone and not want to anything to do with me. Will this do that

Lotus0909 on April 26, 2019:

Thank you Bev! I really appreciate your help.

Have a great Weekend!


Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 26, 2019:

Hi Lotus, you need a basic spell structure. With this you can create your own spell that is personal to you.

If an actual ritual doesn't appeal so much, then you could create a witch board. Gather up things that represent your desired home. Photos work well. Get a sheet of strong card and make a sort of dream board by gluing your photos onto the card. Write things on it like your price limit (for rent or purchase). Do it anyway you like, but as you do so, you must KNOW with utter certainty that you are impressing your will on the universe. Once done, you can set it aside, hidden if preferred.

I can tell you that it works. We are living in the home that I created a similar board for in 2001.

Lotus0909 on April 25, 2019:

Unfortunately his hate has always stemmed from his hate for my father, whom has rarely been in my life, so it’s never really made sense to me. However, he’s generally an unpleasant man to begin with.

What type of spell would work for my own home?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 25, 2019:

Hi Lotus, it's going to be difficult if you are still living in the same house. It would be much better if you worked a spell for a new home for yourself.

It's important that you constantly say to yourself, "It's not me, it's him."

Also, have you tried asking him why he has a problem with you?

Good luck. Hope you get this sorted.

Lotus0909 on April 24, 2019:

I recently had to move back in with my mom and step dad after 20 years... long story ... anyway, it’s been miserable. I’m reminded how much I hated my childhood because of my step fathers constant verbal abuse, negative and extremely hateful energy towards me. I’ve been trying to stay strong and build a plan to move out, however his abuse has continued to play mental games with me. I feel so defeated at this point. Is this an appropriate situation to use the banishing or binding spells you’ve mentioned in your article?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 24, 2019:

Good thinking xx

S. C. on April 24, 2019:

Thank you so much Bev, I'm still very new to spell working. I'm going to take your advice and try a healing spell. :-)

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 24, 2019:

I don't know. You could try it, but you will have to be careful. You don't want to banish the person along with it.

I think I'd prefer to go with a healing spell that you could both do together.

I'm trying to banish HIV from a loved one. Can this spell be used for this reason?

Hi, theraggededge,

Loved your article. You are truly a helping soul. I appreciate it.

Respectfully and may your day be peaceful,


Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 09, 2019:

Hi Vincent, sorry, I just found your comment hidden in the spam folder.

The most important thing for you to know is that you can't and shouldn't work a spell on your friend's behalf. She has to come to the realization that her partner is not right for her by herself. This period of her life may be an important learning experience for her.

You'd be working magick to break them up and it is not your job to do that.

I know it hurts seeing a friend being used like this, but really, unless you have evidence of physical abuse, you must keep out of it. If you do have evidence of physical abuse, then your help must be of a practical nature, i.e. contact the police.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on March 23, 2019:

No, Dave, it's a medical condition. Usually as a result of anxiety or depression.

Dave sh on March 23, 2019:

I am hearing voices. Is this sorcery?

Vincent Wahl on March 16, 2019:

Hi, I am a newish practicing witch and I wonder is there a spell to protect someone from a abusive and controlling partner? This person tells her who she can and cannot talk to, even over the phone, has no job, is a constant drain on her resources and constantly watches her.

My friend cut contact with me two months ago after I sent her a well meaning stuffed animal for a christmas present. It seems like he has low self esteem as he told her not to talk to me. I have been a friend of hers for over ten years and helped her, and yet still see her on the computer every day.

I don't think that she realizes the situation she is in, or is too afraid to stand up for herself as they live together. I'm kinda at a loss as what to do. I am hoping you could help.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on December 16, 2018:

I have no idea, Kendall. However, the most obvious person to ask about this is the 'friend' who gave her the bracelet in the first place. What was her motivation? Why did she feel it was necessary to put your friend in this situation? Where did she get the bracelet from? And why did your friend accept it if she was told it had such powers?

I feel there is more to this than you have been told. And it's more to do with the human dynamic than the psychic one.

Krazysnakelady on December 15, 2018:

Dear Bev G,

I am a little concerned about my friend. One of her friends gave her a black bracelet with her initials on it and told her that the bracelet would allow her to see things. Her friend told her that since it was homemade, the bracelet would eventually fall off and to be aware of her surroundings when it does.

A few weeks later the bracelet fell off at while she was at a different friend's house. Once it broke, she began to see a figure continue to run up and down the stairs without stopping. She learned later that her friend's house was built over a place where soldiers used to train before a battle and the figure that she saw could have been one of the soldiers who died.

I have no idea how this bracelet was made and couldn't find any information on it anywhere. She wants to know if it will continue to affect her life and what the bracelet was. Is the bracelet good or evil? If you or anyone has information on this mysterious bracelet please let me know.


Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on November 02, 2018:

Hi Litza,

You might try this:

Get a fresh candle or tea light. White, blue, or purple. It doesn't really matter.

Sit quietly and think how it would feel to have overcome this addiction. Feel a sense of relief that you never have to do that again. Imagine how good it will be to keep all that money in your bank account instead of having to repay the credit cards. Really feel it.

Get a paper and pen (best to have it ready before you start) and write down these words:

"Healing Power, I ask of thee

Take this habit away from me

Remove any trace of this addiction

Heal me of any similar afflictions."

Read it aloud three times. Then say, "As I will it, so must it be."

Fold up the paper, place it under the candle and allow the candle to burn out in a safe place. Afterwards, simply trash the remains.

You might need to repeat this one monthly until it's done :)

Good luck.

PS The words were adapted from 'Everyday Magic' by Dorothy Morrison.
