Hot Foot Spell
The PURPOSE of the spell, why you do it, is to get someone off your back. The intent is not to HARM someone but to make them GO AWAY and leave you alone. This is NOT, however, intended for petty grievances. This is a serious spell with a fairly good kick to it. If it backfires it can make YOU go away i.e. lose your job. Use at your own risk.
MATERIALS: Hot Foot Powder, bowl to hold powder, small jar oval, 4 black candles, 2 black rush lights, drum or other rhythm instrument (optional, if you know how to clap your hands)
A word about certain items: HOT FOOT POWDER is one of those “magical incense” things you buy at occult supply stores – you know, the ones labeled “sold as a curio, for entertainment purposes only”. Z. Budapest in _The Goddess in the Office_ describes this as a white powder, but the Hot Foot Powder I bought is most definitely black (and smells pretty good, too, in fact). The only thing I can conclude is that Z and I go to different occult suppliers. RUSH LIGHTS have nothing to do with Mr. Limbaugh. Traditionally, they’re rushes dipped in wax or tallow then lit – a sort of candle, very long and thin, that burns quickly and doesn’t throw a whole lot of light. The ones I used were a thin candlewick about 15 inches long dipped in black wax a couple of times. These babies are fragile, so handle them with care until you’re ready to use them.
Cleanse and purify your altar area. Set up your altar for charging magickal tools. Arrange the four black candles for lighting purposes and use no other color of candle during this spell. If you want, drape the altar in black, wear black, and otherwise dress up the area.
Pour a small quantity, about a spoonful, of the Hot Foot Powder into the bowl and place it on your altar. I usually put things I intend to charge on top of my pentagram, but use your own preferred method. Get comfortable in front of the altar, you’re going to be there for a little while.
Put the black rush lights on either side of the bowl. Light them, while focusing on your grievance. Get a good rhythm going -beat that drum, shake that rattle, clap those hands, beat that floor, whatever – and make it an urgent sort of beat, the sort that makes you want to run. As you do this, chant:
You shall rise, you shall rise You shall walk and you shall fly Out of my life and away Onward Outward Away Be gone! And trouble me no more I give you no power You have no power No power Over Me!
Keep repeating this chant and get really worked up. Feel that power and anger rising up. Get loud if you want (well, not so loud the neighbors call 911). Keep repeating the chant until the rush lights have burned almost completely down, then grab that bowl full of Hot Foot Powder and send all the furious energy into it. Visualize that powder just bubbling and boiling over with your emotion. When the fury is in the powder pour the powder into a small jar and close up tightly. Be sure to ground yourself before leaving the Circle.
Now, take that charged powder and lay it in the path of your enemy. Make sure you aren’t seen doing this. Pour it into your hand, then with a strong puff of breath blow it over an area your foe walks over regularly. This spell is specific to one person, so don’t worry about it affecting other people who cross over it. Hot Foot Powder is very fine, and if you only use a spoonful it shouldn’t be visible on a floor. If it is, it will look just like dust. Blame it on poor housekeeping, the local
