Some bonds- whether they are self made, or an actual bond with somebody you want to sever
A desire to break said bonds
a piece of chain you can break easily
Some candles- as many as you want. Could be 1,2 or even 30. Can even be battery candles.
bowl of water/fire extingusher in case the candles get out of hand
Think about the bonds you want to sever. Really pull up all the emotion/anguish/feelings these bonds are causing you.
Invoke any diety you usually work with. May also to be helpful to call one associated with strength, temperance, and patience. (I asked Sigyn and Fenrir, as well as Loki)
Pick up chain, and hold it in front of you.
Begin to break chain.
As you are breaking chain, say:
“As I break this chain, I break the bonds that bind me. (Diety), please lend me your strength, your patience, your perserverance so I may successfully break these bonds.
(Diety), push me as I make these changes.
I cannot do this own my own.
(Diety), I ask for your help.
Help me break the bonds that bind me as easily as I break this chain.”
Place broken chain pieces on altar as an offering.
When done, either leave the chain pieces in an offering jar/container on the altar, or bury it.
If you choose to bury the chain, you can also say:
“I bury my bonds like I bury this chain. May they be forever lost, never to return to me again.”
Don’t forget to snuff out the candles!!!
