Banishing/Binding Spells

Banishing Spells

Banishing Spells

In many traditions of Paganism and Wicca, banishing is done to get rid of negative energy, unwanted energy, or even people who causing problems in our lives. While some traditions frown upon banishing as manipulative magic on the theory that it impacts the free will of another, if your tradition has no prohibitions against such things, then there’s no reason you can’t do a banishing to get rid of negativity.

There are a number of different methods to accomplishing a successful banishing. Which one you choose will vary, depending on how comfortable you are with the different techniques, and what you’re trying to achieve.

Giving Orders

If you’re trying to get rid of an unwanted spirit, one of the most effective methods is to simply give it its marching orders. Be firm and blunt, and say something along the lines of, “This is not the place for you, and it’s time for you to leave.” You may wish to offer a blessing or well-wishes if it makes you feel better about things, and say, “It is time for you to move on, and we wish you the best in your new place.” Frequently, this will do the trick and your problems will be solved.

Elemental Banishing

A popular method of banishing is the use of the various elements, in particular the use of fire or water. Fire can be used as a method of purification and cleansing by way of destruction. Water is used in a number of religions for a variety of purposes, including banishing. You can make your own consecrated water for use in rituals.

Salt is also a great tool for banishing. In some magical traditions, it represents earth, and has been used for centuries to get rid of negative energy.

In some folk magic traditions, black salt – a blend of sea salt and another item such as charcoal – is used as a protective barrier.

Use fire to burn a symbol of whatever it is you wish to be rid of, or earth to bury it.

Ritual and Spellwork

In some circumstances, banishing may be far more complex than simply sprinkling some salt and telling someone (or something) to go away. If you have a person, for instance, who is harassing you, a banishing ritual may be called for. A banishing ritual should include a combination of the following:

  • The name of the person you wish to banish from your life
  • A specific and active description of what you intend to happen. For instance, “Make Susan a better person” is rather vague and passive – instead, try “Susan will stop harassing me at work.”
  • A magical link, or taglock, connected to the person you wish to banish

A great deal of magic relies on symbolism. You can use this to your advantage in a banishing, by doing things such as freezing someone’s behavior, binding them from continuing the behavior, or reflecting the negative behavior back at them. Some simple methods include:

  • A “chill out” spell, in which the person’s name is placed in a container of water and frozen.
  • A basic binding which metaphysically ties the hands of the individual. Try the tongue-binding spell if you’re dealing with someone who is spreading nasty rumors about you.
  • Use a box with mirrors inside it to reflect negativity back to the individual who is harassing you.

Finally, more complex banishings can be performed if needed. You can create a banishing spell using the basic Spell Creation Template, and perform it as necessary. Feel free to make your banishing ritual or spell as over-the-top and extreme as you wish – getting rid of someone who is causing you pain or heartache is a pretty significant thing, so unleash as much magical mojo as you feel you need.

Exorcism Banishing Spell


This ritual can either be done by yourself or with others participating. (It may be helpful to have others assisting with this.)

Incense to burn: frankincense, pine, lilac, or rosemary.

This chant is to be said very forcefully many times over.

You are not to come near my body.
You are not to go before me.
You are not to follow me.
Where I stop, you are not to stop.
Where I sit, you are not to sit.
At my home, you shall not enter.
You are not to step in my steps.
You are not to be in my shadow.
Where I go, you are not to go.

Voodoo Binding Spell


Take a treasured object from the person you are binding (something flammable) and burn it. Rub the ash on your poppet’s head and say:

“You are {person’s name } in thought”.

Then rub the ash on the puppet’s hands and say

“You are {person’s name } in deed”

Next rub ash on the poppet’s heart area and say

“You are {person’s name } at heart and I bind You from {Just about anything can be used here}.

Tie the puppet’s hands and feet behind its back.

*A word of advice, it works best if you burn black or red candles and/or bitter incense and look at the poppet occasionally and remind yourself that the person is the poppet.

Keep Your Lover Binding Spell


To prevent the loss of your lover, during the waxing Moon take a lock of your partner’s hair and mix it with your own, contemplating your essences intermingling. Wrap the hair along with a personal artifact from each person in a red silk square, and bind with a ribbon of green, chanting:

“Love to the left of us, love to the right of us,
over us, under us, even uniting us.”

Envision the red silk as your mutual love, the ribbon as your spellbinding. Tie it tight. Attach a sprig of berried holly to the center of the package, saying:

“Prickles defend our love.”

Place the bundle in a black star-spangled box. Do not open or untie unless you wish to break the bond.

Spell for Separating Yourself from a Problem or Person

Spell for Separating Yourself from a Problem or Person

Small issues can be handed in a magic circle, larger issues may need a full ritual.Think carefully about which is best for the situation

2 black candles, a long black ribbon, black gloves, scissors,
cauldron containing small amounts of alcohol and a silver bell.

Cleanse and consecrate all the items, and dress the candles(to send negative energy away from you), then light the candles. Hold each end of the ribbon and name the ends. Pass the silver bell over the altar several times until you feel you are in tune with the Universal energies of love and peace. Anger is not a luxury afforded to you in this situation. Put the black gloves on and say:

‘I call upon the energies of Universal balance
I call upon the ancient energies of my people
I call upon the living energies of the Morrigan
Underworld and heaven
Land and sea, I awaken these energies unto me.
Witness now that I renounce and sever
Break bonds and connections with ________
By all the powers that are One Power
May the great sisters of Karma now weave anew
and separate me from you
As I will, so mote it be’

Cut the ribbon and say:

‘It is so.’

Light the cauldron, and burn both the pieces of ribbon.

When you feel negativity building up in your home, or the occupants are not getting along:
Use Sandalwood, Dragons blood or (if you can stand the smell) Patchouli Incense. Make certain that you carry your censer or a stick of incense into each room. Use this in conjunction with a chant and meditation.
It’s also a good idea to sprinkle sea or kosher salt on the carpet, then vacuum it up immediately after the ritual.
