Let’s Talk Witch – Jinxes

Let’s Talk Witch – Jinxes

To jinx means to curse, usually only by words or pointing. A jinx was originally when someone pointed a finger at you and shouted curses at you. These could be anything, such as, ‘You are totally useless,’ or, ‘Everyone hates you.’ These types of phrases are the ones that stick in your mind and worm their way into your self confidence and self esteem, they do the work from inside your head and heart.

The pointing of the finger adds power to the jinx; this can be taken a step further by using larger gestures such as pretending to shoot someone with your hand.

We use the word ‘jinx’ as well now when we talk about something before it happens, prompting someone to say, ‘Don’t jinx it,’ by talking about it in case it brings the event bad luck.



If you have been crossed or jinxed, or someone has put roots on you, you may not know

who did it, but you may suspect and even be able to remember how it was done.
One common way to cross someone is to sprinkle Crossing Powder, Hot Foot Powder,
or Goofer Dust across their trackway or doorstep, or dress their socks or shoes.
I have even heard of women who will dress their own privates so that a man will
drag himself in it and lose his nature or jinx up his love life.
Another way to fix a person is to get something personal of theirs and stop it up in a bottle
with roots and nails, pins, or needles. Your hair may have been gotten this way, or a piece
of your clothing, or your personal concerns. This trick may have been done to you by an
enemy to control you, dominate you, or get revenge on you by destroying your happiness
in love and money matters.
First, if you have been having bad luck for a long time or are suffering from an unnatural illness
but you have no known enemy and no one has ever openly declared themselves against you,
check around your home and see if you can find something that anyone could have secretly
put there to jinx you, like burying something in your front yard. If you find something, like a bottle
with personal effects, roots, or hairs in it, dig it up and burn it or throw it away in running water.
If you can’t find such a thing, you may have been fixed with some mess sprinkled on your food
or on your shoes.
You need to get 2 white offertory candles for uncrossing and some Uncrossing oil to dress them.
Also, and this is important, before lighting the candles, I want you to take a bath in some purifying
herbs or Uncrossing type bath preparation. The hyssop herb bath is something you can make
up yourself from hyssop leaves or you can buy ready-made Uncrossing Bath Crystals with Hyssop,
or — for a really strong job — you can use the 13 Herb Spiritual Bath, which contains hyssop and
12 other uncrossing herbs.
Many folks use 13 packets of 13 Herb Spiritual Bath and take a bath every morning for a total
of 13 days to clear away a really bad jinx. Hyssop is what is recommended in the Bible for
purification. (Look up the 51st Psalm; this is the one that tells you how to use the hyssop
bath. If you are not a Christian, you can still use the hyssop herb; it is traditional for
uncrossing in any case.)
To prepare the bath, you either brew up the herbs into a tea and strain it or dissolve the
mineral crystals in warm water. Then you recite the 51st Psalm (or an uncrossing spell of
your choice) as you pour the bath water over your head. If you are taking the 13 Herb
Bath, you pour the water and recite the 51st Psalm 13 times for each morning’s bath.
When you have finished the bath, step out of the tub and light the 2 white candles that
have been dressed with Uncrossing Oil. Stand between the candles. Do not dry yourself
with a towel — let the bath water dry on you in the air as the candles burn.
Now recite the 37th Psalm, the one folks call “The Uncrossing psalm.”
This is the one that begins “Fret not thyself with evil-doers…”
Pinch out the candles (don’t blow them out) if you intend to work this spell for the
full 13 days. If you do will only be doing it for one day, just let the candles burn until
they go out, no matter how long that takes.
If you are not a Christian, then instead of the 37th Psalm, just voice your request in your
own words that the jinx be lifted and the one who put it on you be struck down.
After taking this bath, some people then use the remaining bath water to wash down their
floors and especially the doorstep of the house. Mix the bath water into a bucket with some
Chinese Wash or Van Van Oil to make it stronger. Wash from the back of the premises to the
front. Sweep out the front doorway area while the floor is still wet. Once you are done with the
wash water, carry whatever remains out of the house and pour it on the ground outside
(not down the drain).
Do this every morning upon awakening — bathing, praying, lighting the white candles, and
washing down the house — for 13 days and this will bring you relief from crossed conditions.
If you know who has put this crossed condition on you and you want to reverse the spell
onto them, burn a black candle on their name (putting their name on a paper beneath an
overturned saucer under the candle) or carve their name on the candle. If you use a black
candle in the figure of the Devil and carve their name on it, dress it with Cast Off Evil Oil and
things will go harder with them. If you don’t know the name of the person who did this trick to
you, carve the words “My Enemy” on the candle. Burn the black candle on the toilet tank, a
little bit each night, pinching it out between burnings. Burn it while the moon is growing smaller —
and on the dark of the moon, the darkest night of the month, turn the burning black candle
upside down and extinguish it in the toilet bowl, saying
“Thus will you, [name of enemy], meet your fate!”
Throw the remaining black candle stub and wax into a crossroads — or into the yard of the
person who had put the roots on you or jinxed you.
