This spell can be used for a variety of banishing needs: banishing illnesses, bad habits, negativity, etc.,
You will need:
Carbon or flash paper
Business size envelope
A slip of paper that will fit in the envelope
Healing: Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Sandalwood, Juniper, Thyme, Willow
Banishing: Basil, Valerian, Black Pepper, Patchouli, Agrimony, Acacia, Cypress
Appropriately colored candles:
Healing: Green, Blue
Fast Action: Red
Appropriate oil for anointing the candles
Healing: Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Sandalwood
Banishing: Basil, Cypress, Acacia, Frankincense
Charcoal for the incense if necessary
A disposable pen in black ink
At the full moon anoint and charge the candles with the essential oil and bless and charge the herbs you are going to use. Surround the base of the candles with the appropriate herbs and light the candles, cast your circle or otherwise prepare for magic as you normally would.
Cut a human figure out of the carbon paper (designed appropriately as male or female) that will fit inside the envelope. Of course, if you need to, you can use a larger envelope but the business size is generally sufficient.
Lay the figure on the slip of paper between the candles, charge and name it as the individual and with intent write on the figure what you are working on. Such as, if the spell is to heal an illness you might simply write whatever that illness is, for example: “cold/flu.” You might also write it over the appropriate body part, such as if it is a head cold write it on the head. If it’s to overcome an addiction to cigarettes you might write “cigarettes” on the chest (or where ever you identify most with smoking) and even add a cigarette in the envelope! Be creative with it.
Charge both the paper and the doll with intent, by the elements, etc., and place them and some of the herbs in the envelope and seal it up. Lay it between the candles and allow them to burn until half gone charging and meditating on the purpose of the spell all the while. Store the candles somewhere secure to use later when finishing the spell. Then place the envelope under the mattress of the “ill” person or recipient of the spell if possible. You may also, if it is not possible to put it with the person, place it behind a picture of the person in a frame; inside of a book they gave you, etc., You can also include nail and hair clippings if you like or what you will.
Let this stay undisturbed for as long as needed but it should not exceed one full lunar cycle. When the magic has run it’s course and the deed is accomplished, or when the cycle is done light the remainder of the candles and set your circle or prepare as you did before. Then open the envelope and put everything on your altar, between the candles in a fire proof bowl. First burn the slip of paper with the writing along with the herbs and the hair, nails, etc., if you included them in the spell, then burn the doll. As the doll burns it will turn from black to white (great sympathetic stuff here)! As you burn these things be sure to keep focused on the intent (such as banishing the illness, visualize the person whole and healthy, no longer addicted, etc.) Scrape all of the ashes back into the envelope and use some of the candle wax to seal it up again. You can carve symbols in the wax if you like.
Be sure to get rid of EVERYTHING which you used with this ritual (candle nubs, any remaining bits of herbs, the pen, etc., you should not have to get rid of the incense or oil as you should have used it anyhow). Bury or otherwise dispose of the envelope, far away from anyone’s home or property.
*Flash paper (the kind magicians use) is great to use for the paper, just be sure the paper is safely in the dish before lighting it! This shows the problem properly vanishing in a flash and the doll burns removing the black and turning to white.
Spell To Ward Off Dream Invaders
Three fresh apple seeds
A safety pin
Your own pillow
A white pouch (preferably cloth)
Wrap three fresh apple seeds in the pouch. Tie the pouch closed. Don’t lose the seeds. Safety pin the pouch to the pillow you sleep on. Sleep with the pouch attached to your pillow for seven nights. At the end of the seven nights, remove the three seeds from the pouch and toss them out your front door. On the off chance that a spirit is leaving it’s body and traveling to your home, this will make it impossible for it to enter the house.
To undo a spell you cast

Direction to face to open the circle: East
Best moon phase to use: Waning
Incense to burn : benzoin

one bead from a necklace you own (preferably a pearl—faux or real)
a small patch of black cloth
some string for tying
“I cast a spell asking <insert type of spell here>, I now ask the favor of having the spell removed. I understand to take back a spell means giving up something of my own to show my spirit is true and my intentions are good. I give this pearl/bead from a necklace I own. I transfer the spell into the <pearl or bead> and render the spell dormant. No harm may come from the cancellation of this spell. No further power shall it have. This is my will - so mote it be.”
Place the pearl/bead in the black cloth - add your angelica herbs. Tie the cloth up tightly with the string, wrapping the pearl/bead in the cloth. Dribble a bit of wax from the candles on the knot you tie. Then throw the small package away, far from your home.
Close the circle and give thanks.

Thoughts on the afterlife?
I believe in reincarnation, most of the time, but I’ll get to that in a bit. I like to think that you are reborn and can live a countless number of lives in a countless number of worlds, and a countless number of time periods. However, and this is just my own personal belief, I like to think that the wicked are reborn farther down on the evolutionary/food chain. Like right now Hitler is probably a slug, and he’ll be given a second chance once he learns his lesson, that kind of thing. Like a timeout or something, you know?
Now addressing the “most of the time”: those who suffer injustice or those taken before their time and still have work to do here, those people are the ones who get stuck. Ghosts, spirits, entities, etc. Or maybe if you want you can actually be one consciously. Like if you wanted to stay for a few months or so to haunt the fuck out of someone, or to watch over those you left behind, you can go right ahead and do that.
I dunno, just a theory.

Favorite Pagan holiday
Hmm… I’d have to say Beltane. I enjoy Samhain, too, but I usually have to celebrate it mixed in with Halloween since most of my family isn’t Pagan.
I love every aspect of Beltane from the time of year to the way it’s celebrated. I really hope to some day go to one of the festivals; they sound like so much fun! Usually I just hold my own little solo ceremonies, but this year a few of my friends helped me put together a small bonfire. :3
