Casting Instructions for ‘Sever a Bond’
Etch your name on the candle representing you and the name of the person you wish to break your ties to on the other candle.
Take the two candles and tie them together with the ribbon. Leave space between the two so you can cut the ribbon easily later. Don’t put the ribbon too close to the wick or it will burn.
Light the candles and chant the following:
“These two flames burn brightly together, but one consumes the other with this link between them. no more shallI suffer from the sadness brought by (other person’s name), no more shallI be hurt by (other person’s name). (Other person’s name),I sever my ties with thee!”
At this point cut the ribbon. let the candles burn out (safely, dont leave them unattended!), and dispose of the candles separately from each other.
- 2 Black Candles
- A Black Ribbon or String
- Something to write on the candles with (needle, knife, etc.)
