I ask for the God and Goddess to assist me in banishing these forces
and eliminating his/her destructiveness.

for the workings of Magick herein.
Do the same with the candle
On a piece of paper, write full name of person to be banished.

Thou creature of paper.
By paper made, by paper changed.
Thou art not paper, but thou art negative influences in
(person to be bound).
So mote it be!

water and fire
So be you bound
