unbinded

Un-Binding Spell

A spell to proclaim the end of a relationship, or to remove somebody problematic/negative from your life. Note~ This is not a breakup spell, or a spell written specifically for love; it is rather a spell to move on after a conflict of any sort.

Written by Rainy-day-Witchcraft / Please do not remove source!

Materials:

  • Two black candles
  • Black ribbon
  • Red thread
  • Object of importance (It should be an object associated with this person; In this example, I will use a necklace)
  • Bottle or Jar
  • Knife/Athame

For extra power, perform on: First Quarter/Waning Half-Moon 


Step 1.

Carve both your name and the name of the other person into each candle with your knife or athame. (Sigils, symbols, or banishing words may also be carved)When this is done, anchor them both into the ground or surface straight across from each other, no more than a few inches. Be sure they will not move or fall over!


Step 2.

Tie the candles with either end of the black ribbon, chanting:

“This ribbon represents the bond which holds us together”

Tie the red threat to both, again, chanting:

“This thread represents the string of fate, binding us together”



After placing the object (necklace) in front of your candles; hold up your knife, and chant firmly and strongly:

“This knife represents our separation; I cut this bond with the power and will that will cause [Enter name here] to never return to my life or bring me [Enter emotion here/ Grief, saddness, anger, etc.] ever again.

So mote it be -”


Swing your knife down between the candles, rupturing or cutting both the ribbon and thread. It’s alright if they fall, or if the ribbon and thread do not break. Just take the knife and saw through the middle until they break completely. (Just do not let the flame go out!) When completely separated, proclaim:


“ - it is done.”



Step 3.

Place the object within the jar tangled up in the pieces of ribbon and thread, along with all negative energies and attractions you hold associated with the person. Quickly seal the lid and let the other person’s candle melt down over the top of the bottle, containing the spell. 


Step 4.

While the candle melts over the bottle, bring the candle with your name carved into it to a windowsill or table, and allow it to burn out. As the flame becomes lower and lower, it fills your life with positive energy and opportunity where that problematic person once was!


Step 5.

 

Collect the jar and dispose of it properly. You may keep it if you choose to do so, but ever breaking the seal will cause the spell to cease it’s magick; in other words, will no longer work! It is preferred that you bury it, but your disgarding method is up to you ~


Hopefully some of my fellow witches and magickal practicers find this helpful! Let my know if you have any questions or comments ~

Cherry Lip Bomb (Totally Spies Inspired Spell)

A spell to break through any barriers that prevent you from speaking openly; promotes speaking with confidence.

You will Need:

  • Cherry Lip Balm (or any sort of lip balm)
  • Thyme
  • Water

Steps:

  1. In a jar place some thyme and water. Screw the lid shut and place in a window overnight to charge and infuse the water.
  2. Come morning take the jar of water and bring it to where you are getting read.
  3. With your lip balm and begin putting it on focusing on how it is unbinding and removing the ‘stitches’ that hold your mouth shut and keeps you from speaking.
  4. Dip your dominate pointer finger into the thyme water and gently dab it on your lips but not enough to wash off your lip balm. Imagine as you dab on the water, your lips glowing strong and red. 
  5. Rub lips together to finish the spell and mix in the last of the thyme infused water
GROSS THINGS U SHOULD KNOW ABOUT CHEST BINDING IN SUMMER

you can find fashion advice on how to make things more visually manageable and more comfortable, but for bigger guys some of those tips don’t apply and some issues will come up anyway. here’s some stuff I could’ve stood to know last year.

  • if you feel the need to layer or wear something thick, sleeveless hoodies exist. they can save you a bit of heat.
  • take off layers when you can. wash carefully in the folds of your skin, dab moisture away occasionally during the day, and wash your binders OFTEN.
  • fungal infections: for bigger guys, these can happen between and under breasts. if you notice a vinegary smell when you unbind, that’s what that is. afaik there’s no massive health risk from this kind of thing on your skin, but still try to keep those areas dry and clean.
  • you might get some pimples on your chest, which is fine.
  • you might also get sebaceous cysts. LEAVE THEM ALONE. do not try to pop them yourself, it increases risk of infection. they’ll probably go away on their own; if one becomes inflamed, see a doctor.
  • in the heat, your binder will stick to your skin more and the shoulder straps will dig into your skin. don’t wait until you’re bleeding - if it feels raw at all, pad your straps. you can get bra strap pads online, or just make your own with whatever you have handy.
  • lastly: drink a lot of water. you’re wearing layers, and binders are skintight. you will sweat more.

I know everything is gross + miserable but hang in there and take care of yourself.

I want your Monday morning sleep soaked eyes, dream drenched voice, lazy bones ‘five more minutes please babe.’

I want your Tuesday afternoon stretching break, glasses off, laughter on, ‘just hold me for a while, it’s been a hard day.’

I want your Wednesday evening fingers through you hair, teeth biting nails, neck extended, eye glazing, ‘this paperwork never ends’

I want your Thursday night wine for two, bones unbind, muscles let loose, flats, slacks, ‘just me and you’

I want your finally Friday full soul smile, sun sipping light from the glaciers in your eyes, fingers unfurl, hand extends, ‘come on babe, lets go wild’

I want your weekend, your movie marathon Saturday, reading by the fireplace, making love in the blankets 
I want your Sunday morning orange juice and cereal with blueberries, white sheets, tender skin, hair so friendly it’s standing up waving, ‘let’s not get out of bed today.’

I want your ordinary and your stress, rest, release I want your bad day and that terrible night
I want you drunk in my arms forgetting the place but never my name

I want your lazy and your lonely and your fist full of fight
I want you everyday in every way for the rest of my life.
I want forever as partners, husband and wife.
I want our love to always come first.
I’m yours on bended knees.

Spell to Crack a Witch’s Ward

Get a spool of thread. 
Begin to unravel it. 
“Retexo, Renodo, Resolvo…” 
Repeatedly chant this as you unwind the thread. Hear your words echo everywhere. Make them crack the wards. 
Unravel their protection. Unbind their magic. Undo their ward. 
Continue until the thread runs out. 
Bury the spool.
For extra measure in making sure they won’t just be able to hoist up another spell, burn the thread and blow it in their direction. 
“Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust.”

unbind me bellarke pleeeeease :)

Here, have a little s5 spec.  ;)

Bellamy craned his neck towards the woods, searching for any sign of the miners.  They’d only left one guard on them and she was more than a dozen paces away, hardly bothering to pay attention.  After all, where would they run?  There was no one else left and just a tiny patch of green in which to survive.

The miners had arrived suddenly and swarmed out of the docking bay with clubs and shock batons, searching for materiel to scavenge before their final descent.  He and Echo and Harper had managed to take down a dozen before they were overwhelmed.  The leader had ordered them chained up, preserved as useful resources for surviving the ground.  They had chosen Murphy to question first and he’d thrown Bellamy a pointed look as they dragged him away.

Bellamy’s stomach had churned listening to Murphy scream and Emori had fought against her restraints like a demon, but somehow Murphy kept his head.  He’d claimed the bunker couldn’t have possibly survived past five years, leaving the planet devoid of human life.

They hadn’t been able to reach the bunker, but Bellamy still had hope.  That their people wouldn’t have given up just yet.

That his sister wouldn’t have given up.  He might have already lost Clarke, but he wouldn’t lose her.

So the miners threw them all in the brig and promised them their freedom if they helped them survive.  One shaky broach of atmo and what Raven called an amateur landing and here they were, back on the ground for twelve hours and still chained to trees.

The miners had found a lake and ran whooping towards the water, leaving them with a guard who pouted about staying behind.  Bellamy caught Echo’s eye and she nodded, her wrists already chafed raw as she tried to slip from her restraints.  He looked to Raven, who flicked her eyes towards the guard.  She had the best vantage point from her tree and Raven pursed her lips in a silent whistle.

That would be the signal, then.  

The miners might have once been prisoners but they were terrible guards.  Bellamy’s shoulders ached as he twisted in his restraints but already he could feel the chain loosening.  He glanced at Echo again to gauge her progress and found her staring straight ahead, muscles tight.  Raven’s face drained of color and Monty’s mouth dropped open.  Whatever it was that had them terrified was just out of his line of sight, hidden by the underbrush.

Fear spiked in Bellamy’s gut.  If a panther had survived they were nothing more than bait, and one miner who had never seen a live animal before with a shock baton wouldn’t be much protection.  He redoubled his efforts and a trickle of blood ran down his forearm to his palm, but he’d deal with that later.  Bellamy bent his head down to try and shift the angle of his chains, and then he heard it.

A footstep.

It was quiet— so quiet that for a moment he was sure it was a panther, but then he looked up.

And his heart stopped.

Blonde hair, blue eyes.  A rifle strapped to her back.  Cheeks thinner than he remembered, jaw a little sharper.  A slice of red in her hair, chopped to her chin instead of braided down her back like when he’d last seen her.

But it was her.

Clarke.

Bellamy stared, his chains forgotten, and drank her in.  Something like a grin flickered across her face and she stole through the trees, her finger pressed to her lips for silence.  Her eyes never left his and she crouched down in front of him; real.

Part of him had wondered if she was a ghost but ghosts didn’t crack twigs and their knees didn’t sink into mud and they certainly couldn’t touch you, their palms rough with callouses but gentle against your cheek.  Clarke brushed a curl back from his forehead and smiled, so bright and genuine he thought his heart might never start beating again.  “I’ll get you out of here,” she murmured, and then her eyes lost that soft look.  They snapped back into focus and he knew, without a doubt, they would survive.

Because Clarke was alive.

A Lesson in Binding: Be Careful for What You Wish For

Once upon a time, in September 2015, I foolishly bounded myself to a man I was infatuated with for a year. It ended horribly and I have the emotional and psychological scars still.

It was midnight. I had no idea what moon phase it was that night. I just went into my basement, in completely darkness, visualized myself in a pentagram, and pleaded with the gods/spirits/angels/ANYTHING to give me a year with this man. Just one year. That’s all I wanted.

I got a year. It was hell because it was hollow and emotionally draining. I loved him, but he never loved me. The entire time, I felt the doom in the back of my head. I was constantly anxious and on edge. I knew we wouldn’t last. Not once did he think he fell for me. Yet, he had me in his bed all the time. I was wrapped around his finger. The break-up was hell. Turns out I was never his type. He used the whole “it’s me, not you”. I would later find out that he feared he was holding me back from pursuing a great career, and that was the main reason for him ending it. That was never his choice to make.

I was depressed for months. Whenever his name was mentioned or I saw him on social media, I’d be incapacitated due to anxiety attacks. Even when I physically moved away, he still had power over me.

I had to wait an entire year for the binding to break. I even did an unbinding ritual for good measure. After that, I was able to recover. I have mostly recovered from the binding and everything I went through during that year. Awful things have happened to me in 2017 that have made additional recovery hard, but things are getting better. Those (unrelated) events are part of the journey, my Path, but Gods above, I will never, ever do a binding spell ever again.

Please be very careful if you do a binding spell. Know what you’re doing. Ground yourself. Prepare yourself. Or just don’t do one. Ever. The choice is yours.

been waiting for this kind of question since i started this blog but now that someone has asked idk what to do so

Retractable Razor Nails Spell (Totally Spies Inspired)

A spell to break yourself free of any binding spells that may hold you.

You Will Need:

  • Blue Nail Polish
  • Metal Nail File
  • Bowl of Salt
  • 1 Black Candle
  • 1 White Candle

Steps:

  1. Place your candles before you, the black one to your left and the white one to your right. Light them starting with the black candle. 
  2. Place your bowl in front of you and fill it with salt. Make sure it is between the two candles but closer to you creating a triangle like shape.
  3. Paint your dominant hand with the blue nail polish. While painting visualize your nails long and sharp like razors, ready to cut through anything that may hold you.
  4. Once painted hold your hand out before you and over the bowl of salt. “These bindings hold me tight and strong, but I shall not allow them to for long.”
  5. With your hand slash like you are clawing at something (careful not to hit your candles). “I cut through the ropes! I cut through the ties!”
  6. Grab your nail file and hold it in the hand you have painted and hold it above your head in a position one would do if read to stab something. “I release myself and break through the binds.” 
  7. Stab it down into the salt (again careful not to hit your candles or to break the bowl). “I cut them away!” leave the nail file in the salt
  8. Hover your painted nailed hand over the nail file and bowl once more. “I set myself free.” Blow out your candles starting with white then the black
  9. Leave the bowl with the file in it over night and do not remove your blue nail polish, let it chip away on its own.

Recommended: after this spell take a bath or shower to help remove any negativity still left on you. Take a good rest and do something you enjoy.

My favorite thing about ignoring canon and letting Miraak live is the potential for him to still be neutral evil but evolve into more of an anti-hero than a villain. I mean, canon already supports the idea that he will do things that actually benefit others if it benefits him as well - e.g. rebelling against the dragons.

We have zero info to go on about why he did that, but the fact that he was willing to lose every perk that came with being a king (since that’s what Dragon Priests essentially were) to fight is really all that matters. Because his reasons don’t change the fact that mortals needed heroes willing and able to free them from Alduin’s tyranny, and not only did he have the literal power (goddamn that’s a lot of dead dragons littering his temple’s ruins), his betrayal would have been a substantial blow to the morale of the dragons (imagine how horrified and pissed they would have been to not only be betrayed by a mortal they granted status to, but also encounter the very first joor who could literally eat their souls and end them forever) and a beacon of hope to the oppressed. So whether he did it specifically to be a champion for his people, or for more selfish reasons, his goals aligned with saving the world.

Also his mantra hints at him seeing himself as some sort of dark messiah, planning to purge the old world and make something new. (And side note: everything in his dialogue just screams Byronic hero.)

So take all that together, and I think there’s tons of potential for him to act in ways that are fundamentally heroic, regardless of his morally questionable/reprehensible motives. E.g. forcefully taking the Ruby Throne and ruling rather viciously - but in doing so, wiping out major threats like the Thalmor, who would destroy the towers, remove all races but mer from existence, and unbind the time dragon so they can be spirits again, or whatever the fuck their goals are.

(And another thing I love about that particular idea, having him stop the Thalmor, is that he’d finally be a Good Son™ to Akatosh by saving mankind and his Bormahu. The colossal fuckup that has been Miraak’s life could finally be redeemed in his dragon dad’s [crazy] eyes!)

kirigakure hotaru x mc (unnamed)

a/n: ok so this little ninja made off with my heart, so when @bakers97 asked for a fic with him i jumped at the chance. he’s like. the cutest thing. i love him. this is prompt 70 from this list - “do you trust me?”

His life has always been painfully quiet. Almost from the moment he learned to speak, his gift manifested—he hears the soul of languages began its life when he did—and he was always told to remain silent around his fellow Iga ninja.

The place he regards as his home is, in a way, a prison. His regular escapes to Kai offer him the opportunity to exist as he never has before, not freely, but close. As close as he imagines he will ever come. When the days spent away from his Haven (and her, especially her) pile up, he feels an inexplicable weight in his chest—the only solution is to run it off by running to Ueda.

In Ueda, they welcome him with open arms, they see past his unfortunate gift and actively refuse to see anything but the good in him. He can see why his brother chose to live there.

And Ueda is where she is, which is the best part of all.

Thoughts of Kai, of her, make his journey go by much quicker—or perhaps they simply quicken his pace, he cannot tell.

He arrives at the castle as the sun is setting, and something is—is off.

Normally, there would be noise coming from the Main Hall, some sort of energy, but he can’t feel anything. The quiet and the stillness both make him feel uneasy, but quick on his feet.

He can sense that his brother is not around. That thought is even more frightening.

Prison was not good to Team Cap.

But prison was absolute hell for Wanda Maximoff.

Sam, Clint, and Scott were all a little beat up. A few cuts and bruises, a lot of anger. Some of that's the battle. Some of that's them being arrested and thrown into maximum security cells.

But Wanda?

Wanda’s in a straight jacket and a shock collar. Wanda’s collapsed on the floor, leaning against the wall, silent, white as a sheet, and barely moving.

Wanda wasn’t just arrested. Wanda was tortured by the government.

Because how do you get an all-powerful and uncooperative young woman into a straight jacket? You knock her out, probably shoot her full of tranquilizers until she stops struggling.

Because why put her in a shock collar if she’s already restrained? To keep her quiet and docile. Because they don’t understand her or her powers, what they do or how they work, so they’ve tried to cover all the bases.

Because why wouldn’t Wanda speak to Tony; why wouldn’t she snark and quip like Clint and Scott and Sam; why wouldn’t she spit and curse and scream? The last time she tried, she got shocked. The last time and every time before that, they shocked her. She was in constant pain from moving or speaking - because every time she did something, anything the guards thought she was trying to use her powers, trying to attack them - so she decided the best option was to sit still, keep quiet, and stop fighting. Don’t make any sudden movements; don’t make any movements at all.

She’s been in this situation before, with HYDRA. But even they didn’t restrain her. At least they let her move, let her speak, let her use her powers. At least they let her throw herself against the walls, let her scream, let her manipulate the fabric of the universe. (At least she still had her brother.) She knows what prison feels like - knows confinement and pain by heart - but this is worse. 

When Steve comes to break her out, how much do you want to bet that she flinched at the sight of him? Moved into the corner when the door opened? Cringed when he tried to unbind her? Whined when he got close to the collar because she was afraid it would hurt him or her or both?

How screwed up do you think Wanda is after being tortured by people who say they’re doing it to protect the greater good?

How long before she tries to speak again? Is it just a whisper at first? Is she quieter than she used to be? Does it take her days before she’s willing to speak above a mumble, weeks before she shouts to be heard, months before she screams of her own volition? 

How long does it take Wanda to let people touch her again? Does she throw Clint across the room the first time he places a hand on her shoulder to comfort her? Does she flinch at loud noises? Stops wearing necklaces because they make her feel collared? Refuses hugs because they make her feel restrained?

How much time goes by before Wanda dares to use her powers again? How long before she lets go of the fear of being shocked for something that’s a fundamental part of her? How long before she embraces the energy again?

How long before she stops being scared and starts being angry?

*Y/B/N = your brother’s name


You felt your throat tighten as the Lord Commander’s dark eyes scanned your face. You did your best to keep your expression neutral but your heart was pounding in your chest. What if he noticed that you weren’t who you claimed to be? Or rather what you claimed to be.

               After your mother died, your grandfather insisted that your bastard brother be sent to the Wall. You had protested just as hard as your brother had, but in the end, your grandfather’s word was law. Your brother was a timid thing, apt to attacks of nerves when feeling pressured. He wouldn’t survive at the Wall and you both knew it. Then, you had an idea. It was mad, but you knew you just had to do it.
