Cutting the Cord Spell
When one has been involved (either Emotionally, Physically or Spiritually) with another person it can create an ‘Etheric Link’ that resembles a red cord binding between you. When the friendship or relationship ends it is often difficult to move on, as you are still linked to this person. The Cutting of the Cord Spell is ideal in dissolving the bonds between people allowing them to move on.
You Will Need:
–2 Red Candles, Length of Red Cord
–A photograph of you and your friend or ex (or a picture to represent you both drawn)
–A pair of scissors.
Preparation: Bathe & Cleanse yourself before starting, set out materials, and Cast a Basic Magickal Circle.
Mark the first Candle with your name and the second Candle with the other person’s name. Charge the Candles with Anointing Oil, starting from the center moving outwards (sending energy out), seeing the person named on the Candle as you anoint it. Take the first Candle in your hand hold it over your Altar Candle visualizing it being Charged with energy to do your bidding, then present the Candle to the Altar saying:
As the Goddess gave form and substance to our spirits,
I give form and substance to this candle,
As She named us Her children,
I name this Candle as (insert name).
As this Candle is wax and wick,
So it is also flesh and blood, So Mote it be!
Repeat with second Candle.
Sit in meditation and think of the joy this person brought you, picture your favorite memory. Visualize the link between your hearts as a thick red cord joining you from heart Chakra to heart Chakra. Tie an end of the cord to each candle, joining you together, as you are joined in spirit. Place the photo or picture over the center of the cord saying:
As the Goddess links us in Spirit, I link these forms together, As above, so below, As within, so without!
Again sit in meditation, and think of the reasons you want to cut all ties to this person, think about the events that have lead up to this decision. Face any doubts that you may have and see them for what they are, fear. Know in your heart that the Goddess wants only the best for you and She wants you to want the best for yourself. When you are ready visualize yourself telling the other that it is over and that you are moving on, then see yourself turn and walk away – not looking back!
Cut through the Cord that binds you to each other (as well as through the picture symbolizing your togetherness) and say:
By my free will, with harm to none,
I sever the cord that binds me to (insert name),
As we once chose to share the road we walked,
Now we choose to walk a different path,
Although we still journey to the same destination,
No longer do our steps move in time you are no longer my friend (or
lover), I release the (insert name) from all ties to me
As I am released from thee, As I do will, so mote it be!
Take the candle, 1/2 the cord and 1/2 the picture (the part representing your ex) in a heatproof bowl, tip a little ‘goodwill incense’ over it all, with a little mentholated spirits, then as you light it say:
As this smoke rises and drifts away,
So do all my bonds to you… So mote it be!
Place ‘your’ candle on your Altar to burn when you find yourself wishing ‘what if’. Clean up and Close Circle, then bury everything else except your candle.
