Spell /Ritual Themes
Road Unblocking Spell for Most Purposes
- Citrus fruit *
- White Candle (or colour to match your purpose)
- Incense to your purpose
- Petition on paper
- Fire proof bowl and incense (frankincense or appropriate to purpose)
* minimum of four fruits, to be juiced and added to water as a wash. If you are having a bath you will conversely need more fruit. You can use any citrus fruit but try to weight the fruit toward the lemon and lime side as the sharper scents and tastes will ‘wake up’ your energies.
Gather your spell items and set them out, already having written out your petition as a statement or as a sigil. It should represent either a situation which has become blocked or a particular block that needs removing.
Mix the citrus juice and water, stirring in a clockwise direction to activate and open the situation. Include a visualiation of your situation easig and/or the blockage being removed. Now either bathe filly or wash in the water making sure to wash your hands, feet and face. Allow your skin to airdry whilst you perform the rest of the spell – if you are very sticky wash off at the end otherwise try and leave it for as long as possible.
Annoint your candle with an oil appropriate to your purpose. Road Opening or Command and Conquer oil are the most commonly used but you may want to be specific to your situation. You can make a basic Road Opening oil by infusing a base oil with allspice, liquorice root and peppermint essential oil.
Light your incense and candle, invoking either deity or personal power, for example
I call on Hekate of the Crossroads, Mistress of Keys and Guardian of Gateways. Hear my petition and grant me guidance and aid in my time of need.
State petition as written on paper or explain the situation in simple terms.
Here I stand, at the crossroads of life, and all ways are closed to me but it will open at my command. All that hinders and harms my cause, before. All that serves me not, depart. By my word and deed the way is clear. Come to me o Keeper of Mysteries and reveal to me the way.
Here I stand, at the crossroads of life, and all the ways are closed to me.
State petition as written on paper or explain it in simple terms.
The road is closed, but it will open at my command. All that hinders and harms my cause, before. All that serves me not, depart. By my word and deed the way is clear.
Regardless of the invocation fold the petition paper three times away from you and visualise your way clear. Light the paper from the candle and allow to burn down safely.
Dispose in running water of if it is safe to do so, take the ashes and a coin down to a local crossroads and leave it in an out of the way place.
