Odin’s Binding and Transformation Spell

 Odin

This is a major spell. One that should be reserved for the most serious problems.
It is a psychic takeover of the person’s mind so be sure the circumstances justify using Magic this
way, such as for a rapist, a child abuser, or active practitioner of black magic.

(Side note: I personally don’t believe in the existence of white, gray or black magic. I believe all spells come from the heart of the caster and if that person’s heart is dark then the spell will taken to dark places. Conversely, if the caster’s heart is good, the spell will be taken to light places.)
This spell is not meant to punish the person it binds. It is meant to help them.
You cast it out of necessity and compassion. Not in anger.
It is designed to stop the person dead in their tracks. To freeze them from doing
harm to themselves or others and give them pause; a clear space in which
positive transformation can occur.

What You Will Need:

1. An altar.(This altar would be different from a Vodou/Hoodoo altar since this is not that kind of spell. It should be more of a Pagan/Wiccan/Deity altar. Put things on it that you think would please Odin. Here is a great site that talks about who Odin is and what he might like on his altar.

2. A poppet. This represents the person at whom you are directing the spell. This site has a good introductory about how to make poppets.  A poppet – any sort of poppet is fine, in the correct gender if possible. Personalize it in some way to the person you will bind, such as embroidering their
name on it or affixing a picture of them to the poppet’s face.The person from whom I got this spell likes to use a human shaped candle with the person’s name written on it or carved into the wax.)
3. Two candles. Black ones if possible. (Black candles are somewhat hard to come by so if you can’t find black then get the darkest color. It doesn’t have to be a big candle. A small .99 cent candle is fine.)
4. Black thread (cotton is good. Linen is better)
5. Incense (Copal, fumitory, sandalwood and frankincense are good, but use whatever you can get.)
6. An image of the person or something connected with them. (If you don’t have anything, write their name on a piece of paper.)
7. A healthy, living tree.

8. Whatever you normally use for casting a circle.

Working The Spell:
1.Gather everything (except the tree) where you will cast the spell.
2. Light one candle and the incense.

3. Cast a circle in your usual way. (I like to use Sea Salt that I’ve put in the freezer for three days. The cold cleanses it.) This site has a page on how to simply cast a circle. You also may want to Call the Corners. Here is what I say when I Call the Corners:

I call upon East, the direction of Air.

I call upon North, the direction of Earth.

I call upon West, the direction of my ancestors and Water.

I call upon South, the direction of Fire.

I ask that you aid me in these protection workings.

4. Bind the poppet with the thread wrapping it around and around and making knots whenever you feel they are necessary. Speak to the person as you do this. Tell them specifically why you are binding them and what you are binding them from.
5. Leave a long piece of thread hanging from the poppet. Tie 9 knots in this. Drip molten wax on the bindings to seal them.
Use wax to seal any body parts you are binding, such as the hands of someone who beats his wife or kids; the crotch of a sexual predator; or the mouth of someone who is verbally abusive.

6. Close the circle and ground power.

Thank the spirits for aiding you and Close the Corners:

East, thank you for aiding me tonight. Go if you must. Stay if you will. Hail to you and farewell.

North, thank you for aiding me tonight. Go if you must. Stay if you will. Hail to you and farewell.

West, thank you for aiding me tonight. Go if you must. Stay if you will. Hail to you and farewell.

South, thank you for aiding me tonight. Go if you must. Stay if you will. Hail to you and farewell.

 

This is what I say to close my circle and ground the power:

Thrice around the circle bound sink all evil to the ground.

Thrice around the circle bound sink all evil to the ground.

Thrice around the circle bound sink all evil to the ground.

So mote it be.

You can do it however you feel comfortable doing it. I only offer this as a suggestion. Additionally, I would also thank Odin and any other helping spirits around profusely for attending you. It is just good form to always thank them. You want to be polite to them.

7. Leave the poppet on the altar and have it touching whatever you are using to connect them to it and leave it like that until the candle and incense have burned out.
8. Take the poppet and use the thread to tie it upside-down to a tree – an indoor tree will work as well as an outdoor one.
9. Make the 5-fold bond, if it is possible to do this with the type of poppet and bindings you have used. You can copy the position of The Hanged Man. Here is a picture of one of my tarot cards depicting The Hanged Man just for your reference:

the hanged man

Say this:
I ween that I hung on a windy tree,
Hung there for nights full nine;
With the spear I was wounded, and offered I was
To Odin, myself to myself,
On the tree that none may ever know
What root beneath it runs.

This is the transformation part of the spell. Leave the poppet on the tree for nine days.
10. Recite the poem to the poppet at least once each day while sending the person strong thoughts about the changes you want them to manifest.
Send them compassion.  Send them enlightenment. Hold a mirror up to the poppet while you recite the poem if you want them to ‘see’
what they have done. Yell at the poppet if you have anger you need to release.
