What To Do When Witchcraft Gets Sticky: Reflecting Spells

What To Do When Witchcraft Gets Sticky: Reflecting Spells

One of my specialties as a witch has always been curse breaking and spell reversal. Spell reversal is used to reflect spells, hexes and curses that are placed on you back onto their original caster.

This method can be far simpler than trying to break a spell! Working with the momentum of the magic takes far less energy than trying to stop that momentum altogether.

Hopefully you don’t have too many occasions to use this skill but should you ever suspect that another witch is tampering with your life it’s always best to know how to remedy the situation.

Quick Tip: In a pinch, burning bay leaves is a very quick way to reverse curses!

Reflecting A Spell

You will need:

  • A Small Mirror

  • A Black or White Candle

  • Black pepper

  • Oregano

  • Anointing oil (cooking oil works just fine)

Begin by anointing your candle and rolling it in the pepper and oregano. Place the candle in a holder on top of the mirror. Light the candle and as you do so say the following incantation:

“Return to your maker,

and leave me in peace.

Should the way be barred,

Your power will cease.”

This incantation ensures that even if the caster has protected against spell rebound the curse will still be broken. Allow the candle to burn itself out and dispose of the remains outside of your home.

Cleanse yourself and your home immediately.


Ever wondered if you’re really prepared to handle the dangers of the craft? 


Or maybe you've recently come face to face with these dangers and you're determined to be better prepared next time.

Either way, you need to learn magical defense. This set of skills is absolutely paramount for new witches, witches looking to take their work to the next level, and even witches who are just looking for a little more peace and quiet in their spiritual lives. The craft doesn't have to be dangerous, stressful, or traumatic!

In Defensive Magic For Beginners, I’ve created a step by step learning path that will give you the boost you need to start defending yourself confidently today.
