Have you ever made a mojo bag, poppet, doll, binding, or any magical charm, amulet, or object of spellcraft that you wanted to destroy, but had doubts on how to properly do it? Perhaps you forgot to include an expiration date in your workings because you were in a hurry at the time or forgot. Things like these can be mega tricky depending on the item. A lot of people will shred, break, throw away, or damage these objects, having consciously felt it has been undone, but an energy still lingers. This is not the case with everything. Some objects, like mojo bags, are living entities, extensions of spirit that has been created. This consciousness has to be properly un-created if you will.
Here’s What To Do
Dismantling magical items is a very painless and simple task, but dire should anyone, say, not properly dismantle a mojo bag, and this also works with elementals that one has created of their essence. The good thing about most magical items is that they already have pre-determined expiration dates simply when one includes moon magic or hasn’t fed their objects with personal power or herbal energy, etc.
- Sea salt,
- Smudge wand,
- Parchment paper & Pencil,
- Cauldron/bon fire,
This is going to be similar to an uncrossing, and you may actually perform one on it if you’d please (click here), but this is going to be rather quick. Refer to the large circle of the uncrossing cross in the graphic on that page.
- For dry materials, dismantle every part of the object in the center on a piece of parchment paper that has the un-cross on it.
- For liquids, in a bowl (glass or wood), let liquid drip into the bowl and then dismantle the rest of the materials in the bowl, place this in the un-cross circle.
- If it’s a metal object or something else that cannot easily be destroyed, refer to an uncrossing and then bury the item in white cloth for earth to cleanse. You may retrieve it when needed if needed. If worried of rainwater, put in a ziplock baggie, mama earth cleanses no differently.
Cover the items in the circle with sea salt, and while smudging everything, recite this chant a few times, fold the paper around it all lightly, and then toss it all in the fire to burn completely,
Smudge, smudge, I clear it all, Erase this being I tell to fall,
Expire this item, uncross with might, And depart of its lasting life.
For it had served me well, I thank, Now its time to draw a blank,
Fire o’ fire, ye of high abbot, Leave no vessel for it to inhabit.
My word my law, I cease this life, Shall it know not more of any rife.
If burned in cauldron, you may take of the ashes and bury them by a friendly pine/cedar tree. Ask them to absorb the ashes and in turn, converting them into their own being, thus ultimately moving forward from the magical item.
