Knot Spell for Weight Loss

This article was written by Llewellyn
posted under Pagan

Materials
Length of black embroidery floss cut to the size of your waist

Take the floss outdoors as the sun begins to set, and spend a moment or two thinking about the things that keep you from losing the excess weight. Then tie nine evenly spaced knots in the floss, saying with each:
  1. First knot:
    By knot of one, I now ignite
    A reduction in my appetite

  2. Second knot:
    By knot of two, my metabolism
    Becomes an active mechanism

  3. Third knot:
    By knot of three, I bind desire
    For unhealthy foods; it now expires

  4. Fourth knot:
    By knot of four, I bind the urge
    To binge and gobble, gorge and splurge

  5. Fifth knot:
    By knot of five, inertia goes
    And exercise, I donít oppose

  6. Sixth knot:
    By knot of six, all excess weight
    Is bound to quickly dissipate

  7. Seventh knot:
    By knot of seven, I resist
    Servings larger than two fists

  8. Eighth knot:
    By knot of eight, insecurity goes
    Self-worth buds and blooms and grows

  9. Ninth knot:
    By knot of nine, I bind setbacks
    So I stay easily on track
Finally, tie the two ends together while visualizing yourself reaching your goal weight easily and painlessly. Say something like:
By final knot, I set this spell
So each and every single cell
†Of my body and my mind
Works together now to bind
Me to this weight-loss strategy
And a healthy ideology
Until of excess pounds Iím free
As I will, so mote it be
From Everyday Sun Magic, by Dorothy Morrison
