Spells in which you have no antagonist (e.g. money-drawing)
are analogous to planting a garden and harvesting it. No one
opposes you, and if you apply attention and have a run of
good luck (beneficient synchronicity) you may enjoy smooth
progress and a great harvest.

Spells worked against an antagonist are analogous to a
sports contest or war; you may fight to a win, a loss, or a
draw. I believe that to perform a death spell you must
yourself be willing to die and that to perform a spell to
harm another being, you must be willing to be harmed. That
is all the energy necessary, but even with that energy, you
may not win after all, which is why few people undertake
such spells. Many people believe that it is easier and less
risky to work a confinement, reversal, binding, or banishing
spell on the opponent.

Hving said that, here are some archived spells of opposition
and antagonism:



Use a black candle, with a picture of the person (if
obtainable) placed underneath, also a piece of parchment
with the person's name on it.

Carve the Divine Names "Eel kanno taf" onto the black

Anoint the candle with Banishing Oil. Burn for nine nights,
each night reading Psalm 94. Put the candle out after Psalm
is done (NOT by blowing it out). On the last night let the
candle burn all the way down.

While the candle burns (on each night), meditate and focus
STRONGLY on the aim in mind. Imagine STRONGLY the person
leaving you alone; imagine STRONGLY their evil deeds turning
back onto themselves. Do this for about 5 minutes each night
before you pray the Psalm.

(Note: a purple candle could also work for this, but I used
black because this person had been REALLY harassing in a
serious way).

I like this spell, and would also note that in place of
Banishing Oil, one could use Cast Off Evil Oil or Hot Foot
(Drive-Away) Oil, as circumstances warrant or supllies
dictate. Here is the 94th Psalm, for convenience in
performing the spell:

Psalm 94

 O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth;
 O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.

 Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a 
 reward to the proud.

 LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall 
 the wicked triumph?

 How long shall they utter and speak hard things?
 and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?

 They break in pieces thy people, O LORD,
 and afflict thine heritage.

 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder 
 the fatherless.

 Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither 
 shall the God of Jacob regard it.

 Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye 
 fools, when will ye be wise?

 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he 
 that formed the eye, shall he not see?

 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? 
 he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?

 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are 

 Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest,
 O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;

 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of 
 adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.

 For the LORD will not cast off his people,
 neither will he forsake his inheritance.

 But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and 
 all the upright in heart shall follow it.

 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who 
 will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?

 Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost 
 dwelt in silence.

 When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy,
 O LORD, held me up.

 In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts 
 delight my soul.

 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee,
 which frameth mischief by a law?

 They gather themselves together against the soul of the 
 righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.

 But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of 
 my refuge.

 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity,
 and shall cut them off in their own wickedness;
 yea, the LORD our God shall cut them off.

This spell will inflict serious pain and sores on thine
enemy for a period of 3 strange days, after which the spell
is lifted, and  he is made well again.

Take a black candle and place a picture of thine enemy in
front of thee and tilt the candle so the wax drips upon the
would-be victim in the picture. Visualize the wax burning
sores into the body of thine enemy. While doing so, recite
the following 3 times...

   As I do this candle spell
   Bring mine enemy 3 nights of hell
   Candle black, black as night
   Bring him pains of flesh tonight!
   Lesions on his skin will grow
   Afflict him with a painful blow
   Sores and pain afflict him now
   For 3 nights he'll wonder how
   Dukes of darkness, Kings of hell
   Smite mine enemy, bring him hell
   When 3 nights of pain have passed
   Make him well, well at last

After sitting and thinking about the sores that this will
infflict thine enemy and the pain he will suffer, thou
mayestthen extinguish the candle. When 3 nights have passed,
tear up the photo and say the following...

   When 3 nights of pain endured
   I lift this curse, rest assured
   Darkness leave him, go away;
   The curse is lifted now, today!"

If your cat Kippy had been black rather than an orange
tabbly, the ashes might be used in black cat powder, a
hoodoo formula favoured by gamblers and for dark spells. I
myself manufacture and sell a Black Cat Oil/Powder/Incense
formula made with the HAIR of a black cat (three healthy,
happy black cats).

A good use for your cremated ashes-of-cat might be to add
the stuff to graveyard dirt to make goofer dust. For this,
you need to collect dirt from the graves of those who died
young of illnesses or accidents and sift this dirt with
ashes. The cat-ashes would do very nicely, especially if the
cat died of a sudden illness or was killed by a car. Add
also some powdered sulphur, red pepper, mullein leaves,
snake skin, spider webs, and crushed insects and/or crushed
snail shells.

Goofer dust is used in the African-American hoodoo tradition
to drive people away, harm them, make them sick, and send
them to their deaths. It can also be used in certain 
coercive love spells. The strongest method of application 
is to sprinkle it around a person's bed while he or she is
asleep. Sprinkling goofer dust around someone's bed is a
seriously intrusive piece of bad work and is not to be
undertaken lightly. The practitioner must perform a
purification ritual (bathing with hyssop) after doing the
job. For further particulars, refer to any number of blues
songs or to my web page on the subject at

The use of goofer dust and graveyard dirt in love spells is
documented at my web page on love spells as "a Love Me Or
Die" spell. For this purpose the use of ashes from a et cat
would be ideal, as the spell calls for the remains of
someone who loved you while alive, as i am sure dear Kippy
did. See
The above was posted for educational purposes only. I do not
approve of killing cats to get their bones or undertaking
spells that injure people. I do sell graveyard dirt, however
-- made with dirt from the Forestville Cemetery and ashes
from my kitchen stove. I also make up goofer dust with the
above-named ingredients and sell that as well.

I would be glad to use your late cat Kippy in the
preparation of goofer dust if you have no further use for
the ashes. The resultant product would be sent out in little
packets to people all over the world -- much like the
mass-mailing of the ashes of the martyred labour leader Joe
Hill, back in 1915.
