There’s often confusion over the difference between banishing spells and binding spells, however it’s crucial that you understand this difference. Binding spells attach something or, more frequently, someone to you with great intensity, often permanently Banishing spells remove something or, more frequently, someone from your presence, often permanently It’s an important distinction. Although magic spells are typically used to manifest something or someone, quite often the reverse is needed. Something or someone needs to be sent packing quickly. Banishing spells are traditionally timed to coincide with the waning moon, in the hopes that, just as the moon diminishes, so will the unwanted presence.
Sometimes it’s not clear what or who needs to be banished. There’s just a prevailing sense of evil that needs to be expelled. This spell is most effective during the Dark Moon. An iron hammer is required, as is a flat rock, and either a coffin nail or an old rusty nail.
Hammer the nail against the rock. The goal is not to pierce the rock but merely to score it three times across the face. Visualize what you are dispelling while you hammer. Bury the stone far away. Carry the nail in a red mojo bag, together with some crossroads and/or graveyard dirt.
