One of the most common requests I receive is from people asking about spells to be rid of negativity coming from another person. There are several things you can do to help block negativity from other people, but there are also a couple of quick and easy and super effective spells you can also do to help.
Now, the first thing I always suggest is self cleansing and shielding. It is pointless putting up your spiritual wall or protection bubble without cleansing yourself first, otherwise there's the chance you'll "trap" the negativity inside with you.
Start by taking a shower or bath, you might like to add some salts, cleansing herbs such as Bay Leaves, Rosemary, White Sage, Lavender or even Rose Petals to your bathing water. If showering, you can always pop some herbs into a muslin or organza bag or if you're lucky enough to have some in your garden, attach a sprig to the shower head. The steam from your shower will help extract the properties from the herbs and induce a cleansing and refreshing aroma at the same time.
Whilst cleansing yourself, imagine all negative thoughts and feelings being cleansed from your physical body, allow the thoughts to pass through your mind and release them. Ask the water to cleanse your body, mind and soul.
If you are unable to shower or bathe, give yourself a smudge with some white sage.
Once you've finished cleansing yourself, visualise your choice of spiritual protection froming around you. Whether this is a spiritual shield of light, a bubble, suit or armour or whatever method you feel comfortable with. I have written an article on shielding as well, which you can find here.
Now, before we get into the spells it is important to remember the following:
- Ensure your intentions are pure (not wishing harm to another person)
- If performing a spell using a persons' name, make sure you are absolutely certain this person is the right person.
- Remember, if the source of negativity is your own self you may need some inner work such as energy healing rather than a spell of this sort.
The Freezer Spell ~ Freeze pesky people out of your life
This is one of the most simple, yet effective spells and anyone can do it.
All you need to do is write the persons' name and date of birth on a small piece of paper. Focus your intention onto the paper - such as wanting this person to leave you alone, stop spreading rumours about you, move away from your neighbourhood, or whatever else it may be. Make sure your intention is to send them off on their way with love and kindness.
Then, simply fold the paper up and place it into the back of your kitchen freezer. Leave it there undisturbed and forget about it allowing the spell to take affect.
Optional: Some people like to put the name in a little ziplock bag of water, you can also add a little honey or sugar to the water to "sweeten them up" You could also get creative and add some herbs, such as lavender or white sage.
The Mirror Spell ~ Return negative energy back to the source.
This little spell takes a little more work than the freezer spell, but you don't need to know exactly who is sending negative vibes your way to perform it.
You will need a black candle, a mirror (preferably one you will only use for this spell) and a little time.
If you'd like to, carve some protection or healing symbols into your candle. You may also like to annoint your candle with some oils such as Rosemary, Black Pepper or Frankincense. You might also wish to burn some purification incense while performing your spell.
Sit yourself down in front of the mirror, place your candle between yourself and the mirror so you can see it and your own reflection in the mirror.
Set your intentions, such as wanting to send any negative energy back to it's source - do so with love and kindness.
Light the candle and focus on the flame, concentrate on your desire to be free of negativity and when ready shift your focus onto the reflection of the flame in the mirror. Ask that the negative emotions, thoughts or situation be returned to their source.
You might like to ask that they are not bounced back to you, and that no harm will come to another - whatever you like to say during spellwork.
Once you feel ready, take a few moments to close your eyes and visualise yourself happy, free from any bad luck, ill health, negative thoughts or emotions. Feel how good it is to be free and positive and thank the Universe for helping you feel that way again long term.
Allow your candle to finish burning on it's own, whether it goes out or burns all the way down. You don't have to stay seated in front of it, but be sure to thank any guides or Deities you may have called in for help before you leave it to work it's magick.
Other simple things you can do to help reduce or absorb negative energies are:
- Using Salt Lamps
- Placing cleansing crystals such as Selenite around the home
- Keeping protective stones on you, in your pocket or mojo bag
- Slicing and onion or lemon into quarters and allowing it to absorb negativity (be sure to remove it and either bury or burn them afterwards.
- Keeping a glass of tap water beside the bed overnight, if it has bubbles in the morning tip the water out, outside (not down the drain)
- Practice meditation, yoga or other calming and balancing techniques.
- Aromatherapy, Energy Healings such as Reiki.
