I know how much you guys and gals love the controlling-type spells, so I figured this charm would be popular with you. ;)
This particular charm is good if you'd like to give someone a particular idea or command. Allow me to give an example... If I wanted my boss to always think I was a good worker, I might put the command "Cat is a good worker" into his head. Or...if I wanted someone to notice that I'm so hot it's unholy hotness going on, I might put "Cat is irresistably attractive," as my idea/command. It should be kept in mind that whatever command you want to give, the influence should be one you are reasonably sure the target would take seriously. The idea is to keep it within the realm of the realistic (so if I decide I want you to think I'm secretly a hippopotamus in human guise, this charm is highly unlikely to create that idea as a serious idea in your head, even if you had curious mental images of me dressed as a hippo going through your mind for awhile.)
You will need:
A tag or piece of used fabric from a cap worn only by your target (or mostly only - its okay if someone tried it on once or twice, lol,)
A small scrap of paper
A black pen
Powdered licorice root
Powdered star anise
Optional - small box
Making the charm:
Write the full name of the spell target on your piece of paper. Turn the paper over, and write out a command you'd like your target to follow in the present tense, and avoiding the use of negatives (no, not, never) on this side. For example, if I wanted someone to call me I might write "Call Cat now" for the command. You will want to make this paper as small of a strip as possible.
Secure a tag or piece of fabric from the spell target's hat. Generally the tag or sweatband is used. Place this fabric flat on your altar. Place a few drops of commanding oil onto the center of the fabric, and sprinkle a pinch of licorice, a pinch of star anise, and a pinch of poppy seeds onto the center of the fabric. Now place your scrap of paper into the center of the fabric - you will probably have to fold this very small, so when you do, always fold TOWARDS you. Fold the fabric in half towards you, and using the purple thread and needle, sew closed the remaining three open sides, using a stich which moves clockwise. When you have finished sewing the ends shut, remove the needle from the thread, and using your hands, continue to wrap the thread clockwise around the tag, making a sort of coccoon for it with your purple thread. As you are sewing and wrapping this item, speak the command over and over. When you've wrapped the item up so no fabric is showing through the purple thread, hold the item in both your hands, and, cupping it, breathe out as you say the command like you are breathing into the coccoon. Repeat the breathing the command into your cupped hands action a total of 9 times. Say "My wish is your command, as is my will, so be it!" when you have finished saying the command nine times. Place the cocoon in a safe place where it will not be touched or disturbed. Each day for a total of 9 days (so the first day you created the coccoon is day 1) take the coccoon out, and breathe your command as it is written onto the coccoon, and on the ninth day, you can do one of two things to dispose of the coccoon to make its influence grow: hide the item on or near the target's property or place of work - a place they are apt to be in close proximity to; or throw the item into some bushes or trees east of your home (catch it in the branches,) in a place it is not like to be found.
The optional small box is for a good quiet place to store the item where it won't be disturbed. The box can be reused and isn't meant to be tossed with the coccoon.
There will be questions, so contact me if you have 'em!
