The purpose of this ritual is to rid yourself of somebody who is mentally or emotionally abusing you.

Some personal item from the person you want to bind (fingernail clippings,

hair, handwriting sample)

Black ribbon

Black candle

Cauldron or other fireproof container

Sterilized needle

Piece of paper and pen

One candle at each quarter (optional)



Call the quarters - I like to use candles at each quarter to form a circle of

fire for extra protection.

Light the black candle

Concentrating deeply on the person you are binding, place the personal object

inside the head of the poppet and sew it shut.

Tie the black ribbon around the poppet's head, signifying the binding of that

What if this person I am trying to rid myself of is not necessarily abusing me rather their constant calling and texting me is putting a toll on me emotionally and I can no longer handle their constant need for me that drains the life out of me. Would this spell be the right one for me? I really just want to be left alone.

I'd use a banishing, not a binding. I would also report this to the police. You might consider changing your number or at least blocking them, but send the phone records to the cops. Look for banishing, protection and justice spells. [binding could work to bind in chains a la jail] If all else fails, curses are an option if you're fine with that.
