Evil be Gone by Silver RavenWolf


evilbegone3Our world is an ever-changing environment.  Nothing is static.  Nothing remains the same.  But, when garbage is happening?  Feels like it will last forever, doesn’t it?  Why is it that fun times seem to be over faster than we can smile, and hard times seem to go on, and on, and on?
One of my go-to formulas for many years has been my Evil Be Gone! herbal blend.  Based on one of my favorite Braucherei chants the herb mixture and candle formula I developed has been most interesting — and often, when I use it, not only has the original intent been successful, but also people exit my life that I had no idea were carrying so much negativity within them.
“Evil Be Gone!  Do not return!  The horse has run off and the bridges are burned!”
I love this chant for “restless mind” – you know, when someone has been really nasty to you (and you know you didn’t deserve it).  Your mind goes over and over and over the conflict with no resolution because you feel bad.  I use the herbal blend and candles to remove my own negative thoughts about the hurtful behavior of others that have somehow impacted me.  I have also used (along with other methods) to banish illness and stuck behavioral patterns.
The focus chant “Evil Be Gone” is a bit of a puzzle to those not familiar.  A fun charm that when repeated, is thought to banish evil, negativity, and unfortunate circumstances.  The words “Evil Be Gone” and “Do Not Return” are clear enough statements.  “The horse has run off, and the bridges are burned” – not so much!  In this charm, the “horse” is whatever carries the negativity/evil to you.  If the vehicle has “run off” then it can’t carry unwanted energies to you any longer.  “The bridges are burned” indicates that the pathway/pipeline to you – that energy link – is destroyed.  The negative carrier, even if it could, can’t come back to you because the highway it uses/used is gone.
So, how is this evil stuff gone?
First, by your acknowledgment of non-acceptance of the person, behavior, circumstance, or situation that has caused you so much difficulty.  You have decided that you will no longer be compliant – and you mentally and emotionally invest yourself to change.  Now!
Second, your actions subsequent to the acknowledgment of non-acceptance – changing your phone number, moving, not frequenting a specific store, removing them from your FB page, etc. – whatever is necessary.
Third, by the use of a method, you choose to disengage the energies stuck to you.  This can be through asperging, smudging, and spiritual cleansing (water bath or rattle bath) or other release practice.  The third step should be done several times until you feel free.  Give yourself time.  Let go.
The Evil Be Gone Braucherei charm is to be said three times three – meaning nine times – on three different occasions.  You can say it nine times five minutes apart, or nine times morning, then noon, then twilight, or nine times today, then tomorrow, and finally nine times on the third day.  This all factors down to the magickal number of 27 which is based on the numerology enchantment of 9.

My “Evil Be Gone” Herbal blend includes:  Frankincense, Sandalwood, Vervain, Cloves, Horehound, Nettle, Black Lava Salt, Eggshell, Hot Peppers, Ginger, and Yarrow.  If you don’t want to put the blend together yourself, I have an Evil Be Gone Herb/Candle Combo available in my store (see lead picture).  The Hot Peppers are from my own garden, and the eggshell is ground and blessed here at the hearthstone.  I also developed a fun, pinback button as part of the kit.  This button can be used in your spellwork, ritual, or meditation — or just wear it on your coat or sweater, or pin to a conjure bag as shown above.  (http://www.whispermagick.com)
When to use this offering?  Any time!  Or, you can use it during a banishing moon, on the dark of the moon, at twilight, at midnight, when the moon is in Cancer (to protect the home) or the moon is in a fire sign (Aries, Sagittarius, or Leo), or on a Tuesday (Mars day).
Thank you for allowing me to share a moment with you!

Peace Within.

Exercise in Release! by Silver RavenWolf

We all do it.  Hold on to past issues and present worries so tightly that they suffocate us.  Like a smothering, itchy blanket that we know we should have chucked in the trash long ago, our negative thoughts and feelings linger like a bad fart (is there a good one?) and weigh us down.    Even when we know the crises is over.  Even when the bad people have gone away.  Even when we realistically understand we should move on…

We cuddle the fart.

Revisit it.

Hold it close.

Breathe deep and fill ourselves with the noxious gas of memory.

Release Exercise:  I developed a simple exercise in release that uses a pen, paper, and fire.  Sit quietly, take several deep breaths, and concentrate on drawing in stages.  You don’t have to be an artist.  The idea is to translate the issue to the paper and as most issues are messy?  Art skill is not needed.  Honesty, however, is absolutely required.

The first pass, without lifting the pen, is to think about the facts as you know them.  No assumptions.  No “I think.”  No “maybe…”  Only the facts.  Also, 2nd hand information is iffy.  Just because Sarah told you something doesn’t make it so.   Go only with what you know for sure.  It is super okay if you don’t know everything.  That’s actually part of the process.  Let Spirit fill in the blanks.  It is okay.

Once you have the “facts” layer completed it is time to draw the “emotional” layer.  This is how you feel about the entire situation – ALL your feelings.  Take your time.  Draw over the drawing.  You can stick with black and white, or you can get super creative and add color.

Finally, the third layer is what you “think” – the entire situation that has been squatting and farting in your mind “in total.”  Again, you can add color, or not.  Just let it all hang out!

When you are finished, sit back and take several deep breaths, then go to the sink and rinse off your hands under running water.  I also rub salt on the back of my neck.  All three of these techniques (release breathing, washing, and salt application) stem from my Braucherei practice.

release2nddrawingYou have now transferred the pattern of the thing from your mind to the paper.  This works two ways – you can see this design as a “birth”, or you can see this design as something you vomited out of yourself and it is high time you did that!

While you were drawing, other issues may have jumped into your mind.  These are associated energy patterns that are hooked into the current problem or issue.  Give them their own drawing as well, even if you don’t think they are related.  If they popped into your mind?  There is some sort of link.  Don’t shut those thoughts away.  Deal with it.  These thoughts may be attached to your self-esteem, worries, or fears from a different experience that have slithered into this one.  Take the time to let the negativity flow out.  Don’t dam it up.  Let go.  Release.

In the basic practice, burn the paper outdoors.  As you watch the flames break down and dissolve the drawing, you may wish to repeat:  “I blend with the Spirit of the Universe.  I release my feelings of anxiety, hatred, insecurity, and emotional pain from my mind, memory, heart, body, and soul.  I am One with Spirit, accepting the change, release, and healing I desire.  I am joy!”

Scatter the cold ashes to the wind.

To make the experience more sensory pleasurable, I have developed a Release Herbal Formula that consists of:

Lavender (Mercury)
Rose (Venus)
Vervain (Venus)
Holy Basil (Mars)
Chamomile (Sun)
Yarrow Flowers (Venus)
Lemon Balm (Mercury)
Dandelion Root (Jupiter)

You can put this blend in an herbal sachet, a dream pillow to remove dreams associated with the problem, stuff into poppets to release the situation and more.  If you are into doing your own research as it applies to your personal health care, you can design a tea from the listed herbs, choosing only those that do not interfere with pregnancy or current medications.  For example, Blue Vervain should not be used by pregnant women, as there is an indication that the herb can interfere with blood pressure medications.  (https://www.healthyhildegard.com/vervain/).

Sipping a tea with some of the listed herbs (those that are safe for you) can heighten the experience of release.  Look for over the counter organic herbal tea blends at the store that don’t contain “additional flavors” if you don’t want to make a blend of your own.

For those of you who enjoy working with kits – I have a Release candle/herb offering in my WhisperMagick store, perfect for a single working or for a four-day spell/meditation.  The kit contains four specially blend soy tea candles, herbal blend, a rough quartz crystal, cotton conjure bag, and pinback button symbolizing freedom and peace that can be placed on the sachet or worn on clothing or purse/bag.  If you are into magickal oils, I have a Release oil perfect for anointing petitions and enchanted drawings.  Visit my store http://www.whispermagick.com for my selection of handcrafted products.

Note:  In this article, I have used the element of fire as the release mechanism for the drawing.  You can choose to use water (draw your design with washable markers, salt, or sugar), or earth — draw your design with herbals and scatter in the woods or fields, or air — draw your design with the smoke from an incense stick outdoors (so the smoke doesn’t hang on the premises).  Of the listed choices, I have found fire to be the most effective.

Thank you for visiting my blog!  Feel free to try this working and post your results.
