When performing a bend over working, I take a cross candle (which can represent either a male or female person. I carve each side of the candle with the names of the people involved, their birthdates, zodiac signs, sigils, or elements of your petition. It is then surrounded by anointed offertory candles to form a barrier and surrounded by herbs, roots, salts, according to your particular situation and petition. Bending others to your will is sometimes needed when you’re running out of time to make something happen in your life or if negotiation with the people involved just isn’t possible. Encourages others to bend to your wills and desires.
Specific herbs, roots, and minerals are used to surround and cover the figures. You will notice in this picture that red pepper flakes create a line that separates the two people. I then create another circle of roots to lock in the energy of the break up work. The red candles outside the ring represent the love or attraction they once felt for each other that they can no longer achieve or “reach.” Black tourmaline stones surround the work to absorb the negativity of the work so that its after effects will not be able to reach you, the one that petitioned for the work to be done.
From there they are allowed to burn until they melt and the candles extinguish.
