Making a Poppet
Casting Instructions for 'Making a Poppet'
- Clay or cloth
- Personal items of the person
- Red candle or black
- Spanish moss
- Herbs of choice (depending on purpose)
- White linen (optional)
Add anything you find that is personal to the person within the doll. Bless all of the items you are using to make your doll, be it clay or cloth, then proceed to make the doll. Get a clear mental image in your mind as you concentrate on the person while you are making the doll.
To reinforce you concentration keep repeating the following affirmation: "(name), as you I see, (name) you represent to me".
Continue this chanting and visualization until the doll is completed. Lay the doll on the altar with a red candle. Place both hands over the doll and will your energy to flow as you chant 3, 5 or 9 times: "Though separate you are, you are linked as one: as (name) your life has begun".
Pass both sides of the finished doll through the flame of the red candle saying: "With fire do I consecrate this doll as (name)". Sprinkle both sides of doll with holy water and say: "With water do I consecrate this doll as (name)". Pass both sides of the doll through the incense smoke as you say: "With air do I consecrate this doll as (name)".
Keep the doll wrapped in clean white linen until it is ready to be used in the ritual.
