Tonight I did a modified version of @SilverBear Stop The Gossip Nosey neighbor spell because there’s been a lot of “he said, she said, did ya hear that…” Going around about me, my legal troubles, my divorce, my kids etc and it’s getting inside mine and Piper’s heads a little so since I can’t pinpoint the culprits I aim a general defense. I used her same pattern as far as making the tongue and rolling it etc but to fill the petition paper (which I layed on top of the “tongue” as I rolled it up) I used lemon peel and lemon extract -to pucker the mouth, chicory root- to remove obstacles, black salt-absorb the negativity, mustard seeds- to give them a little faith in me, and nettle leaf-dispel the negative image they have of me)
and I used a white tea light loaded with protective flowers, black salt and chicory (removing obstacles) and within minutes of lighting my candle it seemed like every dog in a 5 mile radius started barking furiously in unison and my flame was dancing wildly and inconsistent but within a couple of minutes of me chanting my intention and focusing on the flame all the barking stopped at once (dead silent and haven’t heard another peep out of them for hours now) and the flame became still, tall, bright and steady. Maybe a sign of success?
Also I bound the tongue with orange thread (justice) and instead of burying it I placed it inside my spell box and that holds the works I’ve done which need to be kept undisturbed. And then cleansed my space and myself with Palo Santo and a self-love/confidence shower ritual
