Casting Instructions for 'A Healing Poppet'
- A poppet or doll
- Chamomile flowers and vervain
- Hair or nail clippings
- A photo or image of the object
- A black marker pen
- A lancing pin
- A box
As a general rule for a healing spell to work properly and before commencing, the object of the spell needs to know and consent to your working it. He or she doesnt necessarily need to be present while the work is done. This spell should be performed on a full moon into its waning cycle.
To construct a poppet take a suitable sized piece of cloth (use natural materials and fibers such as cotton, wool or silk and remember also to consider its color correspondences for healing, see colors). Fold it in two and with a pen mark out a rough image of a body. Now cut out the shape so you have two identical pieces then sew the two pieces together around the edges. Leave a hole wide enough to stuff the poppet with the chamomile flowers and vervain, also insert the photo, hair and/or nail clippings if you have them before sewing it closed. Finally with the black maker pen draw a black circle on the poppet where the ailment is concentrated.
Form a magick circle and call the Goddess and God to aid you spell. Consecrate the poppet and place it on your altar visualizing the object of the spell and the ailment he/she is suffering. Consecrate the lancing pin and charge it with healing energies. Take up the poppet in your left hand and the pin in your right and pierce the black circle with the pin. Concentrate all your willpower on healing the ailing individual saying or chanting something like:
In the name of the Goddess and God, I lance this disease with the spear of healing. As the Full Moon wanes, let this ailment drain. No more to be, replaced with heath and vitality. So mote it be!"
Leave the pin in the poppet and place the poppet in the box on the altar. Visualize the object of the spell regaining good health while building your power and energy and releasing it towards its goal. When the rite has finished, store the box somewhere safe until the person is restored to good health. The poppet can be retrieved and the rite re-worked to accentuate and re-empower the magick over a period if necessary. Use additional lancing pins leaving each in place after each working. Once the healing is complete and success has been achieved, remove the pins and dissemble the poppet. Bury the contents outside in the earth.
