SpellsHealth  ► Healing  ► Witches Ladder
The Witches' Ladder incorporates basic knot magic with elemental correspondences to create a powerful talisman that you can hang in your home for protection or give as a gift to your friends.
You will need the following items for this spell:

  • A yard of cord or ribbon in three colors
  • Beads
  • 9 Feathers or anything to knot into the ladder

Casting Instructions for 'Witches Ladder'

Start the spell by braiding the three cords together, as you go you braid the beads, feathers etc into the ladder so you have nine evenly spaced items.

As you place each item in chant the following:
"By knot of one, my spell's begun.
By knot of two, it will come true.
By knot of three, so mote it be.
By knot of four, this power I store.
By knot of five, my spell is alive.
By knot of six, the spell I fix.
By knot of seven, events I'll leaven .
By knot of eight,it will be fate.
By knot of nine, what is done is mine"

The power has been raised and is now 'stored' in these knots, beads, feathers and in the cord. You can tie the ends of the ladder together and use it as a necklace for protection on your person or hang it somewhere close to where it is needed such as your bedhead or chair.

If you want to use it for healing you untie and release the items in the knots like this:
You must release the knots one at a time - one a day - for nine consecutive days. Release them in the same order in which they were tied. As the knots are released the energy that was put into them releases and is used for the purpose that the ladder was made for. You can either bury the beads etc or keep them in a safe place.

Will the colors of the cord that I use affect its ability?

Some believe it does, you could use any colors you want. Typically people like to use color corresponds.
