|If you think an enemy is working against you or you've had a run of bad luck, this spell will snuff out all dark energy that's directed at you. The spell ingredients you'll need are one black votive candle, a heatproof dish, sand, a brown paper lunch bag, and twine. Set the candle on the heatproof dish and light it. Let it burn a while until the wax begins to drip-feel any dark energy around you begin to weaken. Begin to sprinkle the sand on the candle until the flame goes out. As you sprinkle the sand, say:
"By my own hand, I snuff out all dark
By my own hand, I've set myself free.
Powers of the dark,
I hereby extinguish your spark."
Let the candle and sand sit undisturbed overnight. The next day, place the candle and sand in the bag, then tie it shut and bury it.
