Domination Ritual

  • Timing: Saturday at Sundown
  • Candles:1 Purple
  • Additional Materia:
      1. A cigar
      2. The fingernail clippings from your right hand
      3. The toenail clippings from your left foot
      4. A felt-tipped pen
      5. A fireproof plate or dish
      6. Purple string or jute
      7. A photograph of your target, prepared as a name-paper
      8. A photo of you
  • Procedure:
      • Place the fireproof plate or dish on your altar.
      • Prepare the name-paper photo of the target, and place it in the dish.
      • Anoint the cigar with Domination formula and allow to evaporate in a well-ventilated place.
        • It's ok if there's still some moisture in the cigar (there should be), but be sure there is no residual alcohol.
        • You may choose to pass the cigar through a flame once you think it's dry, to drive off any alcohol just to be sure
      • Use the felt tipped pen to write down the length of the cigar I DOMINATE [TARGET'S NAME] thirteen times around the cigar
      • Anoint the purple candle in Domination formula and allow to evaporate in a well-ventilated place.
      • Place the candle above the target's image.
      • Ignite the candle.
      • Cut the end of the cigar, hold it in your hand and recite:
        • "In the name of God I invoke you: spirits of domination; spirit of High John the Conqueror; spirit of the crossroads; spirit of the 4 winds, paths and places; spirit of enchantment; spirits of Saint Martha and Saint Helena of Jerusalem; all beneficial spirits; I conjure you to help me dominate the five senses, the thoughts, the judgment, the living spirit and the will of [TARGET'S NAME]. To you I offer the smoke of this cigar!"
        • "I conjure the Holy Guardian Angel of [TARGET'S NAME], I conjure the saints and angels for the day he was born [TARGET'S DATE OF BIRTH], for the day he was baptized, and for the day he will die."
        • "By this cigar I conjure the living spirit, body, mind, sexual organs, head, feet and hands, thought, judgment and will of [TARGET'S NAME]."
      • Light the cigar.
      • Take a puff of the cigar, and speak this line over the photo, breathing the smoke out over the image:
        • "Grant me spirits of domination that [TARGET'S NAME] cannot be, nor live calmly, that he cannot eat, nor sleep, nor drink, nor walk without feeling the pressure I place on him."
      • Take a second puff, and speak this line, breathing the smoke over the photo:
        • "Come [TARGET'S NAME] - dominated in body, thought and will, you can no longer act wilfully or resist my command - my look weakens you, my voice dominates you, my eyes blind you and my will overpowers yours."
      • Take a third puff, and speak this line, breathing the smoke over the photo:
        • "So it is and it cannot be otherwise, so it is and it cannot be otherwise, so it is and it cannot be otherwise."
      • Now puff the cigar and blow the smoke on the target's photo with your mind intently focused on the words "[TARGET'S NAME], I dominate you. [TARGET'S NAME], you submit to me," with each puff.
        • DO NOT let your mind wander - the cigar is like a powerful horse - you need to tame and direct it with your will
      • Finish the cigar in this way, continuing until the ember reaches the band.
      • Now, hold the cigar with the ember facing directly up to the sky and place the photo on top of it and continue repeating the words until you are able to see the heat from the cigar coming through the photo and singing it.
      • Quickly remove the photo and put the cigar out on the face, covering the photo in ash.
      • Take the photo in both hands and fold it away from you, rotate it 90 degrees clockwise and fold it away from you again.
      • Drip the wax from the purple candle to coat the paper, so it forms a packet coated in a layer of soft wax.
      • Lay your fingernails and toenails on the packet and continue covering them wax until the candle is done.
      • Leaving some slack on the beginning of the cord, wind the purple cord around the packet towards yourself, trying to completely cover it.
      • Knot the two ends of the cord together, saying, [TARGET'S NAME] I dominate your five senses.
      • Make a second knot, saying, [TARGET'S NAME] I dominate your thoughts.
      • Make a third knot, saying, [TARGET'S NAME] I dominate your judgement.
      • Make fourth knot, saying, [TARGET'S NAME] I dominate your will.
      • Make a fifth and final double knot, saying, [TARGET'S NAME] I dominate your living spirit.
      • Place the packet under the insole of your left shoe and wear it every day, being sure to feed the packet at least once a week to keep it strong.
      • Once the target has complied, remove the packet and burn it.

      • Candles: None
      • Additional Materia:
        • A metal key
          • Modern key with a flat face, rather than an antique key is preferred.

          • Procedure
            • On the first night, place the photo of your target over the mouth of a glass or jar
            • Slowly pour the Infiltraiton formula onto the picture allowing it to drip through into your container
            • As it drains focus on the formula integrating with and becoming inseperable from your target, slipping into and through every barrier
            • As the formula drains through, add more, until it has all filtered through the picture of your target
            • Return this fixed formula to the vial, and hide the vial where it will not be found.
            • On the night of the new moon, retrieve the vial.
            • Place the key in the earthenware dish.
            • Liberally add the fixed Infiltration formula on the key.
            • Light the key on fire with your left hand.
            • While the key burns, focus on it absorbing the virtues of the formula.
            • Let the key cool, then hide it under your welcome mat.
            • On the night after the new moon, retrieve the key.
            • Feed the key more of the formula and give it fire again.
            • Let the key cool
            • Use a fine tip marker to write on the key: “When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong.”
              • You will probably need to write on both sides - that's ok
            • Wind the purple string through the hole in the key.
            • Tie nine knots in the purple string
            • Wind the string around the key, down the length of the key and back until it is completely covered so that the key is not visible.
            • Slip the excess string back through the hole in the key, tie the end of the string to the knotted end, then tie 3 more knots
            • Slip the white string through the hole in the key and tie it at a length thats comfortable to wear as a necklace under your shirt
            • Don't let anyone see your amulet.
            • Feed the formula to your amulet at least weekly until you have successfully completed your infiltration.
