Candle Spell and Poppet for a Young Adult to Move Out and Move On

Candle Spell and Poppet for a Young Adult to Move Out and Move On I have encountered many situation and have created candle spells specific for certain situation, but one that I suggested to a client is becoming to manifest really positive energy and my client sent me photos to share with you. In this situation, the client is in love with a gentleman who is a widower and has one child, a daughter in her early 20’s. The daughter, while graduating from high school, has not moved onto college, nor has she gained employment. It is as if she is ‘stuck’ in a void – both situational and culturally – as the family is Latino and she may have an unspoken message of not leaving her widower father until she marries. She does not leave the home, except to perform household duties, and to my client, it seems she has become the ‘little wife’ , in a sense. My client, a single woman with no children, love this man dearly, but knows the man would never allow their relationship to blossom further without making sure the daughter is on her way. My client wanted to burn a black doll at my year end banishing negativity burn, as there is some stress and maybe a little animosity between the two women in this man’s life. I suggested that we do not have and send her away forever, but to gently and lovingly assist her into a fabulous new life on her own. Even though my client was scratching her head, I explained that in the future she may need this girl’s assistance, so my client should not ‘burn her bridges’. I said that it would be better, and more subtle, to wish her love and happiness as she moves out. She was willing to give it a try. First, I suggested to create a poppet or doll in the image as close to the young woman as she could (see photo). I suggested stuffing the doll with sweet things such as a peppermint (for clarity) in the head, rosemary and rose petals (for woman’s courage and love of self) in the body, and maybe to add some cinnamon or red chili peppers (to spice or ‘heat things up’ – not for sex but to get her to hurry it up and enjoy the process). All of these things are either in your garden, spice cabinet and/or can be found in your nearby store. I then told her to write a small petition paper, explaining that she loves the girls’ father and would want her to allow their relationship to bloom – if she would move on and gain employment or go to college, meet a handsome fella and move into her own apartment, along with driving a zippy new car she paid for herself. The client created a honey jar spell with this intention (see photos) and I suggested to take it one step further and create a diorama of the lifestyle – like a vision board – to place the poppet in when it is not near the honey jar candle, so that to doll will ‘get used to’ having this fine life m clients is wishing for her. Since the client has created this spell, the daughter has been more civil towards the client and even has asked her to help her do something related to the clients wishes. Since both  the client and the intended mans’ families are from the same town in Mexico, they are all traveling to Mexico (no together) to visit. We will have to find out what happens when my client returns! On another note, since she is in love with the man as well and...

Free Candle Spells | Using Poppets or Dolls in Candle Magic Spells

Free Candle Spells | Using Poppets or Dolls in Candle Magic Spells Magickal Dolls, sometimes known as “poppets”, “doll babies”, tobies, and the infamous “hoodoo” or “voodoo” dolls, are a class of tangible magic work that is intended for a target or a particular person. This person can love alone or with others, and the magic will not affect anyone for whom the doll is not named. Such dolls are hundreds of years old in traditional Southern style root magic, and are used to coerce, bind and even curse the person for whom the doll has been named or ‘baptized’. There are many reasons for using  this type of magic. A woman might want her man to stop running around, or a person might want someone to move on with their life and in essence, ‘grow up’ into adulthood. Some may want the doll baby, or poppet, to cause troubles for the person. Some toby dolls are meant to bind or “tie them down”. You can personalize the doll with items that ideally come from the person, but in a pinch, the least you can do to personalize the poppet is to glue or sew a photograph of the person onto the front face area of the doll. It is best however, to have a strand of hair, a used cigarette butt, soiled napkin, used underwear or T shirt, or something that has their body odor,  fluids, saliva or DNA on it. In a certain cases, obtaining this is not able to be done, so I suggest that for these types of spells, a business card, name and birthdate or anything the person has owned or touched might have to be used. In cases of love and personal matters, I would suggest a pink or red doll, as these two colors represent romance and passion, respectively. If you are dealing with a young person, as in the “grow up and embrace adulthood” spell, use pink, as you are doing the spell with loving, caring thoughts of this young person blossoming into their own person to leave the home and become a successful, independent person. I would also use pink in the very early stages of love, only to maybe add a red heart to the doll or a swatch of red on the lower extremities when you want to become intimate. Red felt dolls are exclusively used for the sexual part of the relationship, however, red doll in matters of money will become “Fast Luck” poppets, activated to bring in money fast. Following the natural meaning of colors in traditional Southern conjure and hoodoo, using blue will bring peace and harmony, white for spirituality and blessings. Gold or yellow denotes success, and green is used for money matters. Brown is for court case matters and black is for banishing or cursing. I use black felt poppet dolls stuffed with Spanish Moss in the ritual for the Banishing Negativity Burn every New Years’ Eve. Tradition teaches us that to remove someone’s negative influence, you need to burn it off, so we ‘name’ the poppet/doll with the name of the person giving your grief, and then we burn it, saying, “You do not have any hold or control over me any longer”. Here is a shot of the poppets/dolls being made right now for this year’s Banishing Burn: Items and materials used for dolls vary among areas of the country and belief background. Some use two chicken bones in a form of a cross as the torso and arms extended before wrapping moss, herbs and fabric around the bones.  Some will use two sticks in this same manner or even a large Mandrake root, making sure there are two good side roots to...
