Releasing a Bad Habit With a Poppet




To eliminate an unwanted habit or trait, make a puppet of yourself out of cloth, straw, or a carved candle. Make symbols or words on it to indicate what you want to release forever, allowing anger to build within you that you have practiced this unwanted behavior. Call upon Pluto or Hecate to assist your resolve to fully carry out change in your life. Then, using a safe container such as an iron cauldron or metal bowl, anoint the puppet with a few drops of oil of myrrh, pennyroyal, rosemary, or rue, and then carefully set it on fire, visualizing the release of your unwanted habit or trait forever. Burn the puppet to ashes, and then take the ashes to a place where you have no need to be at any time soon. Bury it, turn firmly, and walk away. Don’t look back!

Of course it has to be a bad habit you actually WANT to get rid of... my problem is I like all my bad habits.

Seriously, I thought something similiar. I know what are my bad habits or at least annoying ones, but do I truely want to rid myself of them. Rather get rid of a few family members.
