To Keep A Spell From Backfiring
If a Witch is sick and needs to cast a spell, he/she can bind it.
This will keep the spell from backfiring and causing harm to anyone else, most importantly to his/herself. The Witch must procure a thread with a color as dark as the nightly sky.
Light an incense of Sandalwood and Lavender, and as the incense fills the air, he/she must make three knots on the ribbon as he/she intones the words that follow:
“By the Karmic Power of Three
This spell tied and knotted be
To cause no harm nor return to me
As I will it, so must it be.”
The ribbon must be carried when casting the spell as a talisman to keep it from backfiring.
