Sand Trap Spell and Ritual - Used for trapping
You will need:
A small glass jar with a lid
Two different colors of sand (can be as simple as darker and lighter)
A single beeswax candle
After the sun has set, light the candle and place it on a flat surface, such as a tabletop. Place one color of sand at your right hand, and the other color at your left hand on the table. Place the jar between the sand in the center.
With your left hand, take a small amount of sand from the sand on your left and sprinkle it into the jar — less than enough to cover the bottom. Now, focus on the candle's flame and speak aloud the following words:
Candle's flame that lights the night,
Candle burning, hot and bright,
By your flame attract ill will,
From this night, so dark — so still,
Trap it in your molten wax,
For your good, evil attracts,
Bind it, keep it — cold, alone,
In this prison — grains of stone.
With your right hand, take the candle and drip at least three drops of wax into the bottom of the jar — more is fine — but no less. Allow the wax to mix with the sand. Return the candle to its original position on the table. Allow the wax to cool and harden — this should only take a minute or two.
Again with your left hand, take more sand and cover the wax. Once the wax has been covered, begin filling the jar with the sand from your right hand side. Continue to fill the jar until it is full to the top. Place the lid on the jar. Extinguish the candle. Place the jar in a dark and secret place and leave it undisturbed. Never open the jar and never remove the sand. This spell may be repeated as needed, should you again feel the presence of negative energies, but new materials should be used each time.
