You will need the following items for this spell:

  • 1 Big/medium sized candle (any color)
  • Circle of friends/trust peers

The circle doesn't have to be perfect. Sit comfortably around the lit candle, forming a circle. Make sure this is ONLY done with people who you trust already and want to talk to about dark and deep things. One person from the circle, usually the one who decided to do the circle, will go around and mark everyone's right/left wrist with a cross using just their fingers (no actual marks just gently use your finger to make a cross). Make sure you mark the same wrist for everyone.

Now everyone needs to say this: 

"In this confession circle, I promise to only tell the truth. I understand whatever is said in this circle will remain here and I will not tell anyone anything that is said within this circle. I will accept my fate or punishment if I release another person's confession outside of the circle."

Now ONLY TELL THE TRUTH about deep things that is usually hard to get off your chest if you want to. Deep things such as assault, traumatic experiences, or difficult issues are usually what people talk about but anything is fine so long as it's true. Only confess things if you want to, you do not have to confess things you want to remain private.

If someone confesses something, you are not to spread it around. If you do, usually you will feel an odd feeling within your wrist where the mark will slightly show or produce pain. The punishment of telling someone else's confessions within the olden days where that people used to slit the wrist of the person who spread the confession of another. HOWEVER, I highly recommend you do not slit their wrist but punish them in a way that is not illegal.


History of the confession circle: The confession circle formed roughly around the middle ages. People used it to usually trick another being into revealing themselves, usually aimed at witches. The confession circle was eventually changed into just being used to get to know each other better throughout history because people slowly stopped believing in the mystical beings. The confession circle eventually stopped being used and was slowly forgotten over time. People now just trust each other with their secrets. However, people who still use it today use it to tell their trusted peers about things that have been sitting on their minds, such as being sexually assaulted, abused, or going through something they can't casually bring up.

I would implement a talking stick or something into this ritual, so the person holding the object is the only one talking and everyone else has to listen. Also, I would hope the people you choose to be in a coven with would be like a second family, if you feel uncomfortable in any way [especiallt is they're pressuring you into confessing things in this ritual] walk away. As for an oath breakers punishment, don't harass or threaten them [obviously] and don't retaliate with what they confessed either, I would cut them from the coven and disassociate yourself with them. It's not to be mean, but you need to trust the people you are with, and if you made a code of ethics, they signed it, and you then proform this ritual and they break it, the consequence should be they lost your trust and friendship.

You are great at spells.

how would using multiple candles, or using charged candles effect the circle?

I think it would make others share more than just secrets

Abbyspells5 i don't really think so- the candle in a way is uniting everyone in the circle- if you used multiple candles- some people may not end up united with the others or the circle will split into groups.

Done it works so well

Can two people work too?
