When many of us think of magick dolls images of a voodoo witch doctors are conjured in our minds. This stereotypical thought has kept many people from enjoying the benefits and strength that poppet magic has.
The fact is, voodoo, at its core, is about healing and love. It is how it has been portrayed in the media that gives people a negative image of it. It is interesting to learn that poppet magick isn’t solely used in voodoo, it has often been used in witchcraft and Wiccan rituals throughout time.
Healing Spells – Poppet Magick How To
Gather some fabric, the type doesn’t matter, but the color should be in line with your goal (check out the “Colors and Magick” section of this site).
You will also need a needle and thread (sorry, the fairies aren’t going to sew this for you).
You can use whatever you’d like to stuff the poppet, scraps of cloth and cotton work great.
Once you have the majority of the stuffing in I recommend adding some herbs or flowers that add power to your spell. Crystals and stones also work well.
If you are making the poppet for someone else add a piece of cloth, some hair or fingernail clippings for that person if available. You can also put a small picture inside to achieve the same effect.
After you are done making the poppet it must be cleansed and purified. Pass it through the smoke from your incense and add a couple drops of salt water to do this.
Once the poppet is put together and cleansed say the following-
“With this spell put inside,
it’s intention shall not hide.
Let this poppet do it’s work for me,
Sealed with a spell, so mote it be.”
REMEMBER – THIS POPPET REPRESENTS YOU OR THE PERSON YOU HAVE MADE IT FOR, TAKE CARE OF IT AND KEEP IT SAFE!
Undoing the Magick -
When the work is done and you no longer wish for the effects of the poppet’s magick, simply take it apart. While you take it apart say the following words:
“I cast this spell at the start,
No it’s time for the work to part”.
Like I stated above, this poppet represents the person you made it for, please take great care and be gentle even when taking it apart. Once you have the poppet apart you must bury the pieces in a safe place.
