Breaking Spells

In witchcraft, a breaking spell is a way of protecting yourself against negative magick

Breaking spells are intended to break a spell that has been cast against you. So if you feel that someone else is using witchcraft to cause you misfortune, these are the spells you want to try. Banishing spells may keep someone away from you, but they will not break any curse or hex already created.

And please remember that not all bad luck is caused by someone else cursing you. Yes it can (and does) happen, but be reasonable when trying more magick just because a few things go wrong for you.

Wash Away a Curse

This spell is also listed elsewhere on the site, but its perfectly suited for this page too. It’s a bit more elaborate than some other spells. You will need:

  • 12 white candles
  • 1 black or dark purple candle
  • 1 cup of coarse salt
  • 1 tbs lavender blossoms
  • 1 tbs white sage (not green)
  • 1 tbs chamomile

You can be liberal with the herbs, as long as they are in roughly the same proportions.

Perform this spell on the night after a full moon for the best results. On your altar (or right in the bathroom) make a circle with the 12 white candles. Put the black one in the middle. Don’t light them just yet.

Run a hot bath, and add the salt and the herbs. Now light the candles and get in the bath. Get comfortable and repeat the following:

By the light of moon’s wane
Cleanse my soul of this stain
Let the spell be reverse
Lift away this dark curse
As I enter sacred space
Return my soul to grace

Pour some of the bathwater over your head (keep your eyes closed!). Do this 3 times, and say the rest of the words each time:

I forgive what was done
Let the spell be undone

Stay in the bath until the water begins to cool off. When you get out, snuff out the candles but leave them in their circle. For the next 3 nights, relight them all and repeat the second part of the chant. After the 3rd night, relight the black candle and let it burn all the way out (if it’s not already finished).

Candle Pentagram

You’ll need to set this spell out on a table or altar space that won’t be disturbed for the duration of the spell. Your supplies are:

  • Salt (fine, not coarse)
  • 5 white candles
  • Rosemary (oil or herbs)

On your table, sprinkle a fine line of salt to draw a pentacle. It doesn’t have to be perfect but try to get it somewhat symmetrical. At each point of the star, add a few drops of rosemary oil or a sprinkle of dry rosemary (yes, right on the table top). Then set 1 white candle at each point.

Light each candle, starting with the one at the top. After each one, say the words:

By the dark and the light
Your spell ends tonight

Let the candles burn for one hour, then snuff them out. Do the same thing the next time, except let them burn all the way out.

Leave the candle stubs in place for another 5 days, so the entire spell is in place for a week. After that, any negative magick against you will be gone.

If curse breaking spells aren’t exactly what you are looking for, there are banishing spells or binding spells that might be more suitable for your situation.
