First you must decide whether or not you would REALLY want
to destroy your target.  It is the responsibility of the
magician to be certain of his intent, and yes, I believe you
must seek her annihilation if you want a full-blown curse to
succeed.  If not, then perhaps your magic should be more
self-directed and of a healing nature.

Gather some minor possession of the subject, preferably
hair, fingernail clippings, etc.  Since she was an ex-lover,
use the power of psychosexuality to your advantage and take
a pair of her underwear.  This will serve to connect you
emotionally with the target of the curse, and aid in your

Using some flamable material (colored tissue-paper will do
the trick), fashion a simple doll, using the hair (or other
material) as stuffing. You don't need to create a work of
art here...just something that you can identify as the
target.  While creating your effigy, recite a mantra you
have made based upon the target's name.  (Info on creating
mantras can be found in Carroll's book _Liber Null_).

Pick a remote area on a moonless night, bring a candle
(black), needles, chalk, a sharp knife and some flamable
liquid (lighter fluid works).

Light the candle.

Chalk a "destructive" power symbol on the ground.  Some
people use the Satanic baphomet, some use the
counter-clockwise swastika...use whatever you like, the more
personal, the better (I prefer a skull and crossbones).

Place the effigy in the center of the symbol.

Invoke Abaddon the Destroyer.  You must write your own
invocation here, but be certain to make a good case for
calling this Lord of Wrath into being.  Be formal about it,
and be certain to mention his all his titles and deeds (The
monsters of the pit can be extraordinarily vain!)  Inform
him of all of your target's crimes, and your malevolent
desires.  The more impressive you make your invocation, the
more likely it is that Abaddon will take heed.   Do not
expect him to appear in physical form, but if you are
confident in your invocation, rest assured *he is there*!

Now invoke every bit of rage and hatred that you can summon.
Everything.  I mean it, focus all your being on this tiny
range of emotion, and direct it onto the effigy.  The effigy
(and hence, your target) is responsible for all of it.

With loathing and distain, plunge the first of the needles
into the effigy's abdomen.  This is for fear.  Concentrate
on the terror you want the target to feel.  Take as much
time as you feel you need to express this desire.

Repeat, this time put the needle in the head.  This is for
confusion. Invoke an image of blurred hysteria and insanity.

Stick the final needle into the effigy's heart. Twist it a
few times if it makes you feel good.  This is for the
anguish that has been caused to you.  May it return to your
target a hundred-fold.  Concentrate on anguish.

Using your knife, slice the effigy open from head to groin,
being certain that the cut connects the pins you have placed
in the effigy.  This is the action that will send the target
on her way to complete annihilation.  Be passionate about

Place the effigy in the center of the chalk symbol.  Put the
lighter-fluid on it (be sure you are careful that there is
nothing else flamable about, like grass, etc).  Call on
Abaddon to work your will, and release this curse onto the
world.  Set fire to the effigy.  As it burns away, imagine
all your anger and hatred dissipating with the smoke.  Let
it all drift away with the smoke and flames. You have set
your desires into action, now you must release those
desires.  (Imagine a magic curse to be like throwing a
baseball; it only works when you let the ball travel away
from you.  The more you hold back, the less successful the
throw.)  Forget about her, and get on with your life.  Rest
assured that the curse will take root in time.

To secure the death of a foe:

Get some wax from an old church or, failing that, from what
is called a 'botanica shop' (Catholic Magick).  Out of the
wax, make what is called an 'effigy'.  Now it will be better
if you can get some of your enemy's hair and/or clothing or
finger/toe-nails.  Put them at the appropriate place on the
effigy.  When you've made it, then set it up on your altar.

Seal the association with some blood.  Get some blood from a
butcher or if you have to from your finger with a pin. 
Smear this on the effigy, especially on the head and the
genital area.  Do this in candle-light and don't let anyone
else know you are doing it.

Enact the spell.  Make up some nonsense words (the Lord's
Prayer said backwards is good) and chant these as you drive
a pair of scissors deep into the heart of the effigy. 
Imagine a great sword penetrating the chest of your enemy
and see hir falling to the ground with a heart-attack or
perhaps some sort of industrial accident.  Drive those
scissors in deep and leave them there on your altar for
exactly 3 days, meditating on this image and the potency of
your spell.  Again, don't tell anyone you're doing this.

Within three days your enemy will be dead.  Take the effigy
and scissors and wrap a clean white cloth around them.  Tie
it up real good and put a few large stones in with them.  Go
to the nearest body of water and throw this into it sometime
near midnight.  Don't let anyone know that you are doing
this either.

Don't say anything about your spell to anybody for at least
a week. If you find out that your enemy didn't die, then
don't tell anyone for two weeks.  They'll die sometime
within the next month.  Sometimes the evil gods need to know
you are serious before they will allow you to carry out your

Don't take public credit for the death.  If you do, they'll
lock you up or consider you a suspect of what may appear to
authorities to be a murder.


This spell is very powerful.  It should be used in PLACE of
physical violence.  Violence is often illegal and will
likely rebound upon you, just like the bambi-wiccans say. 
They only know SOCIAL laws of magick. Do the spell just like
I told you and forget about the person, secure in the
knowledge that you have caused them everlasting torment.

You see, their soul will not go to heaven.  Since they were
killed with magick and you've thrown the effigy into a body
of water, they cannot ever get into heaven until someone
finds the effigy and removes the scissors in a magical rite.
 Fat chance. :)

It's as simple as that!  Most magick is about the same kind
of thing.

I didn't tell you this.  I wasn't here.

Sounds like a case of jealousy/envy. If you do manage to
throw a curse on this person, be prepared for the kickback
you will eventually receive. It's one thing to curse or hex
someone who is threatening your life or the life of a loved
one or your property (in this case it's protective... I keep
a curse on my car in case anyone is stupid enough to break
in to or try to steal it), but it's quite another to do so
because you're jealous or out of revenge.

Throwing a curse is easy enough. Just gather a jar, any and
all nasty materials you can think of (rusty nails, broken
glass, roaches, herbs [especially those with noxious odors],
etc), and a picture of the person or their name written on a
sheet of paper.  Put the ingredients into the jar one at a
time while visualizing and concentrating on your intent. 
Put the picture or name into the jar. Say a rhyme or chant
that indicates your intent and what you want this to
accomplish. Close the jar and bury it where it won't be
disturbed. Then wait for the results (WARNING: if your
intent was caused by jealousy or revenge, then the results
will not be pleasant for *YOU*).

Or you can do it the old-fashioned easy way. Go stand near
the person and yell out your curse at them (yell their name
and point your finger at them to make sure you target the
right person). Make sure you include what you want to
happen. Same warning applies.

Normally I don't post any type of spells on a newsgroup, but
I'm making an exception in your case. If you're stupid
enough to do this for the wrong reasons, then you deserve
what you get.

A Malaysian charm designed to bring sickness and ill health
to a victim calls for 1/2 lb. of melted wax, and a bit of
hair or a piece of clothing belonging to an enemy. If
clothing is used, cut or tear it into tiny pieces. Mold the
wax and cloth, or hair, into an image of the person to whom
malice is intended. After the doll is ready, take a coffin
nail and prick it over and over, repeating several times,
"it is the heart that I prick, it is the liver that I prick,
it is the spleen that I prick, it is the brain that I
prick." The ritual is repeated each evening for three
evenings in a row. After that time, wait nine days. If the
victim is still well, the magician must try a different
spell for the victim has been protected by counter-magic or
some protective witchcraft.

A modern spell to cause an enemy to go mad is done with a
voodoo doll, a coffin nail, some Black Arts Oil, and fire.
The doll should be carefully labeled with the foe's name. On
the first evening of a full moon, place a coffin nail in a
bottle of Black Arts Oil or pour some oil in any small
container and place the nail in it so that it is fully
covered and can soak well. Leave the nail for nine nights,
and on the tenth night, pound the nail into the doll's head.
It is alleged that, before the next full moon's coming, the
victim will be cursed with severe headaches, faulty memory,
and deep depression.

If you wish to cause an enemy to move away from you, an
almost unfailing ritual can be performed with nine coffin
nails, some graveyard dirt, and crossing powder mixed with
get away powder. Just mix together the dirt and the two
powders so that it is thoroughly blended. The proportions
are not important, but about one third of each ingredient is
best. Divide the potion into nine approximately equal
portions and place each portion into a small envelope with
one of the coffin nails. Each evening go to the enemy's home
and throw the contents of one envelope in the path where the
foe must walk to enter or leave the home. Do this each
evening for nine consecutive nights, and it is probable that
by the tenth day this enemy will be moving from the

Another modern spell which is designed to bring tragedy to
an enemy is made with a piece of wearing apparel from the
intended victim. Take the clothing and cut it up into as
many pieces as you wish, or can get from the material, or
squares about 6" on all sides. Use one square each night.
Write the foe's name on a piece of parchment backwards and
state your curse on the other side of the paper. The curse
can be said in your own way, or it can just be something
simple like, "___(name)___ is cursed, ___(name)___ is damned
forevermore." The writing should be done with Dragon's Blood
Ink to which a drop of Black Arts Oil and a pinch of
valerian has been added. Then, fold the square up, turning
the folds away from you, never toward yourself. Take the
folded piece of clothing, with the curse inside and nail it
on your enemy's front door, using a coffin nail. Do this
each night until your mission has been accomplished.
