Magickal Knots

To Bind From Harm
Use this spell to prevent someone from harming themselves and others. Tie nine knots in a cord while saying each time, “I bind you, (name), from harming yourself and from harming others.” When you are finished say, “Three times three, I bind you, (name), from harming yourself and from harming others.” Then burn the cord so that the knots may never come undone.

Healing
Tie nine knots in a length of thread and then tie the cord around the afflicted body part. Wear for a few minutes, visualizing what ails you, and then untie all the knots, releasing the ailment, and throw the thread into running water. (Please, please, please use a natural fiber.)

To Prevent Nightmares
Suspend from the ceiling or hang on the wall above your bed a holed stoned on a cord containing nine knots.

Love/Binding Spell
Take 3 cords or string of the colour(s) which symbolize your need. Knot one end to represent your self. Braid the cord/string until you reach the other end. Knot that end to represent the one you love. Visualize the two of you coming together as one and knot the center of the braid. Keep the braid in a safe place if it is a binding spell. If you are using this to attract love, keep it on your person or wear it as a necklace, bracelet, or anklet until love is found.

To Ensure A Happy Marriage
Take an article of your clothing and one of his/hers; something that won’t be missed, such as a sock. Tie them together and hide in a place where they won’t be found.

Healing Knot
Tie nine knots in a piece of red string and wear around your neck to help cure a headache.

Releasing Hate/Anger
Focus on all of your hate and anger and then tie a knot. Visualize your anger tied up in that knot. Then undo the knot, releasing your anger and then throw the cord into the fire.

Protection
Tie nine knots in a cord while visualizing a protective image such as a shield or a circle of white light around you or your home. Carry the cord with you for personal protection or hang inside your home.

Simple Needs Knot
Take a cord in the appropriate colour and visualize/feel your need. Once you’ve built up as much emotion as you can, knot the cord firmly once. Keep the cord in a safe place until your need is met.

To Rid Of Troubles
Concentrate on something that is troubling you. When you are full of emotion, firmly tie a knot in the cord and then leave the room and the cord behind for awhile. Later on, after you’re relaxed and focused, go back into the room and untie the knot, releasing what has been troubling you. Visualize it disappearing.

There are three things that you may do with the cord after your need is met:
1. Burn it so that the knot may never come undone.
2. Keep it in a safe place where it won’t be disturbed.
3. Bury it in the earth.

Undo Knot Magic
Simply undo the knot. This doesn’t always work so always be sure that what you are doing follows the Wiccan Rede.
