How To Dispose of Spellwork Remnants

belladonnaswitchblog: What you do with the remains of your spell (wax, photos, ashes, etc.) is just as important as the spell itself. The spellwork does not end when the candles and the incense extinguish. The spellwork is not complete until you return the remnants back to the Earth. The Earth and the universal energy carry and propel your magick and your spellwork to its full completion. Make sure your disposal method does not contradict your desired outcome by completing your spellwork following the disposal methods outlined below:

– Notes:

  • *Banishment spells refer to any spellwork where the desired goal is to remove or end undesirable conditions, circumstances, people, or habits. 
  • *After performing a curse, it is best to completely disconnect from your magickal working. Not because of karma or anything external, but because you cannot thrive while being attached to the energy of destruction. You can do this by not looking back when you walk away. By walking away without looking back, you consciously (and physically) disconnect and move on with your life.

chthoniclullabyFrom an ecological standpoint, I do not like burying anything in the ground or tossing anything in water. Yes, it’s traditional. But is it good for the earth? Unless it’s natural and biodegradable, like food or paper or what-have-you, I personally no longer do this even though this is the way I was taught.

breelandwalker: The biodegradable part is VERY important. If you’re going to bury a curse jar, I suggest doing so in a planter pot. That way it’s easier to dig up if you need to as well.
