Honey Jar Spell
Honey Jar Spell
Jar w/ metal lid
Sweetener of your choice:
Sugar, Honey, Karo Syrup, Maple Syrup, Fruit Syrup, Molasses, etc.
Pencil/Pen/Marker in the appropriate color, if you choose
Candle in the appropriate color
Dressing oil appropriate to the spell to dress the candle
Personal curios or items (at least one hair from each person is essential)
Originally the color of the syrup/sweetener was chosen according to the person's skin color: White person - Light Karo Syrup, Latino person - Maple Syrup, Black person - Blackstrap Molasses, etc. The color of the paper used was also chosen according to the person's skin color. Of course, in this day and age of "politically correct" bullshit this is ignored or considered "wrong". My opinion on this is - BULLSHIT!
Tear the paper so the edges are all rough and not clean-cut.
Dress the candle with the oil. A white candle can be used for general blessings & healing, red for sexual intents, pink for romance or reconciliation, brown for legal matters, etc. Just make sure your candle is appropriate to the work's intent. If you don't have colored candles always use white - the all-purpose color.
Write the person's name on it 3x's, in a column, not across the paper.
Turn the paper clockwise 90 degrees and write your name (or the other person in the spell) across the top of the first names written. Again, in a column, not across the paper.
This will give the effect of a tic-tac-toe grid, and is referred to as Crossing & Covering.
Draw a circle around the criss-crossed names, then write your wish in one continuous run of cursive letters with no spaces and without lifting your pen between words or to cross t's or dot i's. Just write the words all as one long word, ending exactly where you began so it becomes a complete unbroken circle of words.
Once this is done, then go back to cross the t's and dot the i's.
A good tip is to keep the spell simple: "lovemelovemeloveme", "assistmeassistmeassistme", "bringtomebringtomebringtome", etc. - you get the idea.
If you happen to lift your pen - your bad! LOL Now you have to start all over again, so be careful!
Now add the items gathered: herbs &/or roots appropriate to the intent, hair from both people. If you use hair from each person - tie them together if they're long enough to do so.
Place the hairs on the Crossing & Covering paper.
Fold the paper toward you to bring what you want, speaking your wish out loud as you fold the paper.
Turn the paper and fold it toward you again, and again speaking your wish out loud as you fold the paper.
Keep repeating until you can no longer fold the paper.
Take a bite of the sweetener, then place the folded paper into the jar.
As you eat the bite of sweetener say something to the effect of:
As this ____(sweetener of choice you used) is sweet to me,
So will I (or the name of the first person in the spell) become sweet to ___ (name of second person in the spell).
Repeat the bite of sweetener and the words of the spell 3x's.
Close the jar lid tightly and place the dressed candle on top (if necessary, melt the candle's base to soften the wax to help it adhere to the jar lid without falling over).
Light the candle and allow it to burn completely out.
Repeat this every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for as long as it takes for the spell to manifest. Just add another candle on top of the wax of the previous candle. If it has to go on long enough you may lose sight of the jar completely!
