Knot/Cord Magick…Why Isn’t It As Popular As Candle and Incense Magick

Knot magick also known as cord magick,  is no less effective than any other form of magick. So why isn’t it used as often?Many Witches/Wiccans have never even heard of it.

Knot magick is a form of spell work that is less well-known than some others, but is no less powerful.

The only material you need to perform a knot spell is a cord of some kind. Anything will do, but make sure it is long enough to hold all your knots and the material of the cord should be natural. Craft shops are great sources for lengths of cord made from silk, cotton, hemp, leather, wool or even ribbon. Choose a colour to match the intention of the spell.

You can use your cord as-is, but to add more of your personal energy to the spell, you can also braid it before working the knots. Obviously, the material needs to be fairly thin or the resulting cord will be too thick to hold the knots. You can combine colors too, to more finely tune the color energy to your needs. Make sure you have a sufficient length of material, as it will shorten up considerably when braided. Focus on your purpose as you braid your cord.

Once you have your cord ready, it’s time to make the spell. Any purpose can be used with cord magick, but spells that involve binding are more appropriate. I don’t mean binding of another person necessarily, but any kind of ‘tying up’ or ‘holding fast’. Some examples might be: spells to eliminate bad habits, to help keep emotions in check, to bind up an illness, or to secure a new job.

A typical or traditional knot spell has nine knots, and the words spoken are shown below. You concentrate and focus your energy on your purpose, and repeat each line as you tie each knot. But you could also choose a number of knots to match your purpose (numerologically speaking), and you can recite your own words as well.

Your magick will continue to work as long as the knots are tied. Once your goal has manifested itself, you should dispose of the cord without untying the knots. Burning or burying it are two options, so long as your cord is made from natural materials. You could also just keep the knotted cord tucked safely away.

Traditional Nine Knot Spell
By the knot of one, the spell’s begun
By the knot of two, I make it true
By the knot of three, so mote it be
By the knot of four, the open door
By the knot of five, the spell’s alive
By the knot of six, the spell is fixed
By the knot of seven, the earth and heaven
By the knot of eight, the stroke of fate
By the knot of nine, the thing is mine

What’s Magick? What’s A Spell? How to charge a Spell?

These are all good questions and there are many answers out there. This is a quick briefing on my opinion.

Magick (sometimes referred to as sorcery) is the practice of conscious manipulation (intentional change)  and/or suggestion to achieve a desired result. Influenced by religion, mysticism, occultism, science, and even psychology.

Spells in my opinion are also closely related to prayers.

Spells  employ various powers of the mind,  like creative visualization, positive thinking, and positive imaging. These methods help the spell caster create a mental picture so that he/she  can better relate with their intentions and form a clear and specific goal. These intentions are repeated according to a comfortable chosen method and combined with the infusion of will (will power). Calling upon deities, divine forces, ancestors, spirits etc. help many acheive their goals.

Many different things are used to help with visualization, such as numerology, moon phases, powers of herbs, oils, incense, candles, charms, amulets, tradition and much more.

Please feel free to list methods or anything else that helps you visualize and aids in your spell casting. Don’t be shy to ask questions. If I can not help I can direct you to a website or person who can.

A Spell to Stop Slander or Anyone Who is Trying To Negatively Influence Others Against You

This is a good spell to use against a slanderer or anyone who is trying to negatively influence others against you. This spell can also be used if you have a day in court and your opponent is dishonestly trying to Influence others.

This is a freezing spell.

If someone is working against you in a personal or legal matter and you know their name, you can try a freezing spell.

Write their name on a piece of parchment paper using a freshly sharpened pencil. Try to make the point of the pencil extremely sharp/pointy.

Fold the paper in half, until it is too small to fold anymore.

While you are folding instill your desires to make them stop lying, mocking or turning others against you. In short you are trying to freeze their actions. (Hence the spell name ).

Then pour vodka or denatured alcohol on the paper. I would advise doing this over the sink. Then put it far back in the corner of your freezer.

Leave it there for 28-30 days. Some believe this should be started during a waning moon.

This should stop the slander. Thus it has frozen them out.

Feel free to add any chants, candle magick etc. to infuse this spell with your intentions. Remember all magickal work HAS to be instilled with your intent. Adjust things as you feel comfortable.

How to Choose Your Witch Name

Witch names are VERY important. Sometimes you learn your name through a
dream, divination or it can be passed along. This name selection
technique uses numerology. If the name chosen for you doesn’t “speak” to
you, thats o.k. just play around with the letters or use another

Check out this website to find other really cool ways of finding your special Witch name.

Great thought and your inner feelings will play the major roles while
your witch name. This can sometimes be confusing and frustrating.
But I have placed here a guideline to use while searching for that most
personal name in hopes that it will give more meaning and understanding
to the process. Your Birth Number and Name Number should be the same.


Sometimes numerology is forgotten in choosing a name. Below you will find a system of numerology that is most commonly used.

Numerological Formula for Names

1. How to find your Birth Number.

Add all the numbers of your birthdate.

Example: March 10, 1954 = 3+1+0+1+9+5+4 = 23

Bring down the final two digits (23) and add together.

Example: 2+3 = 5

5 is the Birth Number.

2. Now to find out if the name you have choosen is appropriate for you.

Alphabet and number equation.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

Now by using the chart above
calulate the name you have choosen by adding the letters and final sum.

Example: name = DIANA, D = 4, I = 9, A = 1, N = 5,
A = 1

4 + 9 + 1 + 5 + 1 = 20

Bring down the sum and add:

2 + 0 = 2. 2 is the Name number.

Now your birth number is 5 so you will need to add a letter equivilate
to 3 (C, L, U) or you could add 2 letters, (one equivulate to 1 (A,J,S)
and one equivulate to 2 ( B, K, T).

Example: Dilana = 4 + 9 + 3 + 1 + 5 + 1 = 23, 2 + 3 = 5

Diakana = 4 + 9 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 5 + 1 = 23, 2 + 3 = 5

If you don’t like any of the names that the are created to equal 5,
try another name.

I hope this will help in you quest to find the name that is suitable
for you.

Spell To Give You The Power To See Others Intentions-Good or Bad

Bright Blessings to all!!!

This spell is to help give you the ability to see or sense others intentions around you. This spell is BEST done at the start of your day but can be done anytime of day or night.

Items needed:

a small white votive or tea light candle (or any color that represent truth and honesty to you)

your voice ( a soft whisper)

good intentions and belief

What to do:

First you will need to light the candle, and hold it during the recital of this spell (this will help infuse your energy and intentions into the candle) be sure to sit or stand straight. You want to direct you energy properly so NO SLOUCHING!!! After you take a few deep breaths, gaze into the candle and recite……

With this light it shall be read

With this light It shall be said

Good fortune a plenty and with abundance

With only good intentions as my influence

Light my candle with fire bright as the sun

Bringing inner peace and cheer to each and everyone

Show others intent as clear as a mirror

Only those who reflect good may be brought nearer

Those who wish harm shall be banished from me

As I will it, So shall it be !!!!!

Repeat this as many times as necessary until you feel only positive energy flowing through you. It is this positive energy that will protect you and give you the ability to see or sense who has ill intentions toward you.

Then let the candle burn out (this is why you need a small candle,  big candles can take hours to burn out) as the candle burns lower and lower you will feel your abilities get stronger. ONLY use this spell if you can handle the truth. This spell will reveal the intentions of everyone who comes near you. That includes, family, friends, boss, strangers etc……So do not use this spell if you do not really want to know the true intent of others.

Please let me know how this spell works for you.

Merry Meet, Merry Part And Merry Meet Again.
