Banishing Spells To Get Rid Of Someone That Work

Banishing spells are used to get rid of unwanted people, things, and energy you no longer need in your life. These spells, also known as go-away spells, aren’t designed to be malicious or evil. It’s more seen as a form of protection magic.

You may sometimes find yourself in a relationship with someone who is not good for you, yet you seem drawn to them for reasons you can’t fathom.

Whatever it is, you don’t have to feel stuck with this person because you can cast a spell to remove them from your life.

A banishing spell will come in handy when your soul contract is finished with this person, and they’re still causing you pain for no reason.

It’s useful for retrieving the peace and happiness you’ve lost because of this person. You can also use this to drive away those continuously hurting you, even when you have already learned your lesson.

What Is a Banishing Spell?

A banishing spell helps you drive away any unwanted energy from your life. This can be a habit, a person, or an entity that makes things difficult for you.

When any of these no longer serve you, and you’re finding it hard to move forward because of their presence, this spell can get rid of them permanently.

Bear in mind, however, that this spell is not to be confused with the intention of harming someone or wishing them misfortune.

Only consider a banishing spell as a last resort, particularly if you’ve already made amends with the person and nothing seems to work.

When Should I Perform a Banishing Spell?

The best time to perform a banishing spell is during the waning moon — the period when it is getting darker again as the heavens make way for the return of the new moon.

This moon cycle is perfect for cutting your ties with someone, although any time is still appropriate. Sometimes, the energy of you being so ready to be done with something or someone is stronger than the energy boost you would get from the moon.

So, if you’re really feeling it, go right ahead and banish that person from your life.

Before you cast a banishing spell, ask yourself if there’s any reason why this person keeps showing up in your life and if there’s a lesson you have yet to learn. If that’s the case, letting nature run its course is better.

Banishing Spells To Get Rid of Someone

When using witchcraft spells to get rid of someone, you must examine your intention first. This ensures that your pure thought can generate enough energy needed for doing something as massive as driving someone away.

Otherwise, the spell may backfire, and you’ll end up even more stuck with the person, creating more karmic debt that’s harder to pay.

Once you’ve reflected enough and already feel that you’re ready to banish someone, here are some basic banishing spells for you to try.

How To Make A Bottle Banishing Spell

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

Using a bottle for banishing purposes is very common because it captures all the negative energies from someone who means harm.

Materials

Tools

  • Lighter
  • Pen or Sharpie

Instructions

  1. Cleanse your sacred space with burning sage, then cast your witch’s circle.
  2. Sit inside the circle and light a black candle, focusing your intention on its flame.
  3. Next, write the name of the person you want to banish on a piece of paper, then fold that paper outward.
  4. Add banishing oil made of lemon, chili, and garlic cloves steeped in olive oil into a bottle.
  5. Sprinkle some black salt.
  6. Put in some stinging nettle, an herb typically used to treat inflammation.
  7. Mix all the ingredients by shaking the bottle “widdershins” or counterclockwise.
  8. Tear up your petition paper and place the pieces inside the bottle.
  9. Throw in some devil’s shoestring, a plant known for its long vines that help “trip up the Devil.”
  10. Shake all the ingredients and place the cork tightly on the bottle.
  11. Finally, charge the entire bottle over the black candle flame as you envision your petition being fulfilled.

Notes

You can use a bay leaf instead of paper if you want to bury the spell after you finish.

An Alternative To Removing a Person in Your Life

You don’t always have to use witchcraft spells to get rid of someone. I personally believe that every person who shows up in this lifetime is there for a reason.

Whether they make your life easy or difficult is out of the question, just know that they’re there to teach you something really valuable.

This is why I want to discuss an alternative to a banishing spell, which is just as effective. Not to mention, it reduces your risk of incurring any more karmic debt, further tying you to that person.

Rather than cast a banishing spell, why not choose an empowerment spell to help you heal from all your self-doubt and insecurities triggered by that person? (Check out these 100 self-love affirmations here.)

It’s all about changing the way you evaluate your situation. What better way to move past an unfortunate situation than by removing negative thoughts hindering you from living the life you deserve?

Banishing Spells FAQ

What if I don’t want to permanently remove someone from my life, but I want them just to leave me alone right now?

Then you need a freezer spell! This banishing spell is a great alternative to cutting ties with someone forever if you just need a little break. Write their name on a piece of paper and stick it in the freezer so they can cool off.

Once you feel like they’re chill enough for you to let them back in your life, go for it…

Is it okay to do a banishing spell?

Absolutely. Don’t forget to cast protection before you begin, and as long as you’re doing it for the right reasons and are very clear on your intention, then you will be okay.

What happens if the banishing spell stops working?

That can happen. Sometimes the effectiveness of the spell wears off after a while. (Especially if you’re new to spellcasting and haven’t learned how to properly channel your energy yet.) If your banishing spell stops working, you can do the same spell again or try changing the ingredients up a bit, add lavender for extra protection, or even freeze the spell and leave it in the freezer.

A word to the wise when using witchcraft spells to get rid of someone — cast responsibly. Remember that you can’t always use them every time an annoying coworker shows up, or you simply don’t want to deal with that nosy aunt of yours every holiday season. Always ask yourself why you need to do this in the first place and whether you truly, absolutely need it.

I am in need of advice. I am engaged and his ex keeps threatening me and his eighteen year old daughter. I am trying to be nice and ignore it but they have gone to far. When I am angry I tend to do very dark magic. I don't want to kill her I just want her to leave us alone. Thoughts please and thank you.
