Freezer Binding: Write the name of the person you wish to prevent from harming you on a piece of paper. Gaze at the paper and visualize the face of the person in question; see their face vividly imprinted on the paper. Then, fold the paper three times. Tie it up with black thread or string, and put into a small watertight container (baby food jars are ideal). Fill the container with water, and place in a nook of the freezer where it's unlikely to be disturbed, saying 'Stay there and freeze as long as I please'.

Binding Spell You will need: One glass jar with lid Photograph or personal item of person you want to bind One white ribbon Sea salt Canning wax Wrap the photo or item with nine knots of white ribbon, as you do, invision the person leaving in peace. Each time you make a knot, chant "I bind you (person's name) so you can harm none, not even yourself". Place the photo or item in the glass jar. Say "I bind you with all the power of the great Mother" and cover the item with sea salt. Melt the wax and pour into the jar and say "I bind you from this day and forever". Seal up the container and bury it in the north end of your yard. Tell no one what you have done.
The purpose of this spell is to rid yourself of the negative energies of someone who is mentally or emotionally abusing you. If done properly, it will not harm the object of the spell nor will it affect his or her daily life in any way. It will simply make the person powerless to mentally or emotionally harm you.
Small cloth doll, leave the head unstitched until you are ready to begin the ritual
Needle and thread
Some personal item from the person you want to bind (fingernail clippings, hair, handwriting sample)
Cauldron or other fireproof container
Piece of paper and pen
One candle at each quarter (optional)
Call the quarters - Place candles at each quarter to form a circle of fire for extra
protection. Light the black candle Concentrating deeply on the person you are binding, place the personal object inside the head of the doll and sew it shut. Tie the black ribbon around the puppet's head, signifying the binding of that person.
Say the following:
''With harm to none, my will be done I hereby bind you (name of person)
Your words cannot harm me
Your thoughts cannot harm me
You cannot harm me''
Continue chanting this until you feel power surging through you. Visualize the person helpless to slander or verbally and mentally abuse you while you are chanting. Now, to bind the spell - If you have a vigil or a Craft name, sign it on the small piece of paper. If not, sign your own full name. If others are working the ritual with you, they too should sign the paper. With the sterilized needle, prick one of your fingers and put a small drop of blood over your signature. Again, if others are working with you, they should place a drop of blood over their signatures. Fold the paper, light it on fire and drop it into the cauldron. Meditate on the flames until the paper completely burns away.
If you are working with a group, join hands at this point and feel the power surging around the circle as the spell is bound. Ground and center release the circle. Thank the Goddess and God for their protection and power Bury the doll as far away from you as possible within the next few days.
Get a large white candle, the kind that drips wax, and set it up on a tray. Affix it to a photograph or other image of the person you wish to bind. Make a ring of sea salt around it. Make a second ring with protective herbs. Fill the rest of the tray with images that represent what you are binding the person from: pictures of your family, keys to your house, legal documents, whatever. If the problem is too complex for images, write what the person is bound from on slips of paper and place them around the candle. Papyrus, or paper made from cotton or linen work best for this. Use red ink if you are angry, purple ink if you are sad.
Wrap the candle and the image with black thread. Invoke Isis and Linda, the Binder with Linen Thread. Say out loud what you are binding the person from. Light the candle and leave it to burn until the wax begins to drip over the thread and image. Burn it every day for a week, until the image is thick with wax. Use this as a meditation device to direct your will to binding the person.
DIN'S BINDING: BINDING + TRANSFORMATION:
This is a major spell, one that should be reserved for the most serious problems. Imposing your will on another is not something we normally do.
This spell is not meant to punish the person it binds, it is meant to help them. You cast it out of necessity and compassion, not in anger. It is designed to stop the person dead in their tracks, freeze them from doing harm to them self or others and give them pause, a clear space in which positive transformation can occur.
A puppet - any sort of puppet is fine, in the correct gender if possible. Personalize it in some way to the person you will bind, such as embroidering their name on it or affixing a picture of them to the puppet's face. I like to use a human shaped candle with the person's name written on it or carved into the wax.
Two candles, black ones if possible
Incense (copal, fumitory, sandalwood and frankincense are good, but use whatever you can get)
An image of the person, or something connected with them. If you don't have anything, write their name on a piece of paper.
A healthy, living tree
Gather everything (except the tree) where you will cast the spell. Light one candle and the incense, cast a circle in your usual way. Bind the puppet with the thread, wrapping it around and around, making knots whenever you feel they are necessary. Speak to the person as you do this, telling them specifically why you are binding them and what you are binding them from. Leave a long piece of thread hanging from the puppet. Tie 9 knots in this. Drip molten wax on the bindings, to seal them. Use wax to seal any body parts you are binding, such as the hands of someone who beats his wife or kids, the crotch of a sexual predator, or the mouth of someone who is verbally abusive. Close the circle and ground power.
Leave the puppet on the altar, touching whatever you are using to connect them to it, until the candle and incense have burned out. Take the puppet and use the thread to tie it upside-down to a tree - an indoor tree will work as well as an outdoor one. Make the 5-fold bond, if it is possible to do this with the type of puppet and bindings you have used (as in the classic tarot card of the Hanged Man).
Say the following:
I ween that I hung on a windy tree,
Hung there for nights full nine;
With the spear I was wounded, and offered I was
To Odin, myself to myself,
On the tree that none may ever know
What root beneath it runs.'
Leave the puppet on the tree for nine days. Recite the poem to the puppet at least once each day, sending the person strong thoughts about the changes you want them to manifest. Send them compassion, send them enlightenment. Hold a mirror up to the puppet while you recite the poem if you want them to 'see' what they have done. Yell at the puppet if you have anger you need to release. This spell should be therapeutic for you too.
Take the puppet down on the ninth day, leaving it bound. Light the second black candle and drip its wax all over the puppet. Speak to the person while you do this, telling them whatever you think they need to hear. As soon as the wax sets, get the puppet out of your house and into the trash. Do not bury it.
If the tree shows signs of growth afterward, that is a good sign the transformation part of the spell is working. If it's spring and the tree was going to bloom anyway, more than the usual number of blossoms would be a good sign.
This was written by the great Scott Cunningham. It can be found in his book titled, "Wicca, A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner" on page 185.
It reads. . .
''. . . Visualize a triple circle of purplish light around your body while chanting: ' I am protected by your might, O gracious Goddess, day and night.' Another of the same type: visualize a triple circle and chant: 'Trice around the circle's bound, evil sink into the ground.' . . . ''
I included these two because of all the email I have received by those looking for protection. And because I could never have created one better. I use the second one whenever I have the need.
