    Default Disposing a Poppet

    I used fith-fathing (poppet) magic two weeks back for the first time, following a ritual I modified from Witchcraft: Theory and Practice by Ly De Angeles. It was to keep a control on the mother of a friend who, to put it lightly, is like Bree Hodge on steroids.

    The spell's working fine, but it's come to a point where I wish to break the spell and get rid of the figure. I'm not entirely sure how to go about doing it, for fear of causing any kind of harm to the initial target. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Poppet=a small figure representing a specific person for use in sympathetic magic (ie. a "voodoo doll")

    To dispose of a poppet without harming the person it represents, it is necessary to sever the magical link to the person. This is done by "unmaking" the doll. The first step is taking its Name. Address the doll as if it were the person it represents, then tell it "You are not [person]." Repeat this statement as a chant as you take the doll apart. Carefully remove any "facial features" you might have added and put them aside. Cut away the seams that hold the doll together and remove the stuffing. If you can find the nail parings or hair etc. from the person, then remove them as well. Otherwise, just spread the stuffing out. The poppet is now "unmade" and no longer affects the spell recipient. The components can be disposed of in whatever manner you like, but should never be used for any other magical purpose.

    Working with dolls and sympathetic magic is powerful stuff so you have to be careful. I agree with what daecon has told you. After undoing the doll I'd suggest throwing what's left in running water-a river or canal.

    Thanks for the advice, though the said poppet is made of wax not stuffing. Unnaming it and then burying it in the earth seems to make the most sense.
