Witch of the Waste's Spell to Make a Curse Undetectable

image

The best part of that spell is you can’t tell anyone about it.

They won’t be able to know if they’re cursed, and neither will anyone else. Decreases odds of a curse being reversed or removed.

Items Needed:

  • 1 black, square piece of paper
  • 1 black or dark colored candle
  • 1 white crayon (ayyy you actually get to use that thing)
  • One or more of the following: String, hot glue or regular glue, stuff for a wax seal, tape

Step 1: Light the candle. Take the piece of paper and, with the white crayon, write the target’s name in the middle. Then, turn the paper so that it looks to you like the name is written vertically (don’t worry, pictures will be included). In a straight line, write the intent of the curse you cast on the target. Make sure it intersects the name. Like this:

Then, turn it a bit more so it looks more like an upright ‘x’ from your perspective instead of a ‘t’. (X’s just look more witchy.)

Step 2: Take the candle and drip wax onto what you’ve just written (be careful!). Do this until you can’t see the writing anymore.
As you do this, say the following as many times as you wish:

This curse is not one that anyone will find.
Though the effects will stay strong, the idea of a curse will not come to their mind.
Hide this curse and hide it well.
Let it not be discovered by divination, wit, or spell.
If they try to investigate, let their results be but a question mark.
Until I end this curse myself, they will stay in the dark.

Step 3: Fold the paper in half. Do one or more of the following (depending on the supplies you chose to gather): tie it up with string or seal it with tape/staples/hot glue/regular glue.

Step 4: Put the paper in a dark space that won’t be very hard to get to. Leave it there.
If you ever want to undo this, just find the paper, unseal it, say “This spell I break. If they search for my curse, it will have a fair chance of being found." Then, throw the paper away.

In about two weeks I'm going to be moving into my dorm room to start my first year of college. I am not allowed to burn anything in my room). I am a new practicing witch and I already feel lost and like I dont know what I am doing, now I dont know how to practice in a dorm/campus setting. I just purchased Wicca: A Year and A Day and a new tarot deck. and im hoping that will help, but i still dont know how it will work. How do I find other witches? How do i continue to practice without candles?

Finding witches can be done by checking WitchVox for local postings, gatherings, and similar. Additionally, you can check YellowPages for local occult, metaphysical, and similar shops in the area and see who runs them and whether or not they hold events.

This is an article discussing how to build cheap altars. This blog has ideas across the board for college bound practitioners. This question/answer has ideas for small spaces and closeted workings. As for replacing candles, you can us electric candles (scented or not), wax melters, oil warmers, or something along those lines.

Toxic Crystals and Minerals

Crystals are one of the most beautiful gifts that we have been given by Mother Earth and metals in their various forms can also delight the senses. However, just like Mother Earth herself, some crystals can be just as dangerous as they are beautiful. Many of these stones are perfectly safe to handle or wear as jewelry, but present a danger when they are used to create anything that will be consumed.

No matter what you are intending to do with your crystals, you should always be aware of base minerals they contain as a very good chunk of them can contain poisonous elements, such as copper, lead, zinc and arsenic. This can be a problem if you plan on using your crystals for Gem Elixirs, Crystal Infused Oil for massaging into the skin, if you are cutting or engraving them to make talismans, which can release the chemicals into the air and even if you handle them often.

As is true with many insects and animals, it is often the brightest and most beautiful crystals that are the most dangerous. As a general note, almost all blue and green stones, especially brightly colored ones, contain copper/or arsenic.

Some Safety Precautions

To play it safe, always make sure you wash your hands before and after working with your crystals. This will help keep you safe and your crystals clean, both physically and energetically. Use a mask, gloves, eye protection and good ventilation when you are engraving, polishing or sanding stones for jewelry. Wetting them before you begin will cut down on the dust. Tumbled stones are less likely to leak toxins and dangerous materials, rough stones are more likely to dissolve or break off and leak these toxins.

A List of Potentially Toxic Minerals

Some minerals are more toxic than others and there are many different types of toxicity. You must use your own judgement when choosing what crystals to work with and how to use them.

This is NOT a comprehensive list of all toxic minerals.

Please be safe, and do extensive research on your crystals before using them, especially if you are making a Gem Elixir and the crystal will be ingested.
