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.
Odin'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.
Binding an Enemy
Gather cobwebs from your house. Place them all a tangle upon a black cloth. Procure then a fly, recently dead, and set it down upon the mass of webs. These words should then be written down on paper:
"North, South, East, West
Spider’s web shall bind him best
East, West, North, South
Hold his limbs and stop his mouth
Seal his eyes and choke his breath
Wrap him round with ropes of death."
Fold the paper 4 times and wrap it, the fly and webs in the black cloth, forming a small bag. This should then be bound up with the end of a long cord and suspended from a hook in a dark corner of the home. Do not disturb it, but let it hang until it is thickly covered in dust. Then take down and bury it in the earth to work its influence in perpetual secrecy.
