Banishing Spells

Updated: Oct 26, 2021

Banishing refers to one or more rituals in ceremonial magic intended to expel physical and non-physical forces ranging from ghosts to harmful influences. Although banishing rituals are frequently used as components of more elaborate ceremonies, they may also be conducted independently.

If you're banishing an unwelcome spirit, a human you don't want in your life anymore, or even a situation you're sick of in your life, banishing gives you the power to clear things out of your life, allowing you the freedom to control more of your life.

1. Burn It Banishing Spell:

This Banishing Spell is straightforward and should be relatively simple for even if you are a novice.

What you need:

  • A piece of paper

  • A pen or pencil

  • A bowl that is fireproof

  • Matches or a lighter

How it is done:

  • The first thing you will want to do is ground and center; if you do not know how to do this, check out my blog post in the basic rituals tab and click on (How to Ground and Center).

  • The second step is to cast your circle. Again if this is unfamiliar to you or you need a refresher to go over to the tab marked basics and click on (How to Cast Your Circle).

Now that we have the basics out of the way let's get started with our first Banishing Spell.

  • The first thing you will do is write down what you wish to banish on the piece of paper. This spell can be for a person, spirit, or something else. Some ideas are negative self-talk, low confidence, anxiety, or procrastination.

  • Concentrate for a moment on what you wrote down on the paper. Now bring it to your mind as vividly as you can.

  • Light the piece of paper on fire and place it into the bowl. As the flame consumes the paper, imagine your target leaving your life and then focus all of your attention on what your life will be like after the banishing takes effect.

  • Once the paper has finished burning, you should dispose of the ashes immediately. Take them far away and scatter them into the wind or throw the ashes into a trash can that is miles away from where you live.

2. Reflective Banishment Spell:

This spell is a very simplistic banishment crafted to reflect the negativity back to the target, so this is only for problematic spirits and unwanted people. You do not want your anxiety or your procrastination to be reflected back on you.

What you need:

  • A small mirror

  • A sharpie or permanent marker

How it's done:

During the entire process, visualize the negativity reflecting back onto the spirit or person you selected to banish.

  • Write the name of the person or spirit you want to banish onto the back of the mirror.

  • Now under the name, write the following:

"You've sent me strife and caused me pain,

I now reflect it back again"

  • Now add a banishing sigil underneath your writing.

If you need instructions on how to create a banishing sigil go to the sigils tab/section of this blog and review the article titled: Protection Sigils

  • The last step is to keep the mirror safe and in your possession until the person or spirit you wish to banish has been removed from your life.

3. Candle Banishing Spell:

This banishing spell helps banish a person, a mental or emotional state, and a troublesome situation.

What you need:

  • One black candle

  • A candle holder

  • Matches or a lighter

  • Pepper

  • Salt

  • Something to carve the candle with

  • Anointing oil (you can use any kind of oil you prefer.

If you do not have anointing oil and don't know what to make for this banishing spell. Gather the following ingredients before starting:

  • 1/2 oz of essential sage oil

  • 1/2 oz of essential sandalwood oil

  • 1/2 oz of essential angelica oil

  • 1/2 oz essential clove oil

  • A pinch of salt

  • A container for the oil

How it's done:

  • The first step is to write your intention on the piece of paper. An example is "John Smith will never come near me again"

  • The second step is to make your anointing oil. As stated before, this can be any oil you chose.

(Below is directions on making anointing oil: Skip this step if you already have some prepared)

  • Now let's start making your oil blend. You will want first to pour the sage oil into your container. Next, pour the sandalwood oil into the container. Now sprinkle the salt into the container.

  • Hold the clove oil (the last ingredient) in your hand and empower it by charging it with your energy.

Here is an option for empowering your last ingredient if you do not know how to. If you have another way that you are more comfortable with, go for it.

  • (Touch) Imagine your energy flowing through your body like blood. Imagine that energy starting to flow and gather in your hand. Touch the oil, keep the intent in your mind, and imagine all of that energy flowing through your hand into the oil.

  • Once you have empowered your last ingredient, go ahead, pour it into the container and swirl it around.

Now that everything is prepared let's get started with the banishing spell.

  • First, slowly sprinkle the salt in a counterclockwise circle around your work area. While you are sprinkling the salt, imagine the salt is creating a protective barrier around you.

  • Now bring the target of your banishing spell to mind and carve your intention into the candle.

Optional step:

  1. Carve a banishing sigil into your candle

  • It is time to anoint your candle. Take your oil container and begin slowly pouring it onto the candle from top to bottom and from left to right.

  • Now sprinkle the pepper over the candle and set the candle into the candle holder.

  • Light the candle; while lighting the candle, say the following:

  • "Blank, I banish you from my life. Be gone, and never return!"

  • Now allow the candle to burn itself out. Make sure this is completed on a fireproof surface.

  • Once the candle is entirely burned out, remove the wax and bury it in the ground away from your residence.
