Did you know that you can use a mirror to reverse a spell cast against you? Here’s a simple ritual to stay protected against hexes, curses, and other spiritual and psychic attacks.
Finding out where the attack came from is usually not possible. But we can at least make sure that it doesn’t affect us in negative ways by creating a spiritual barrier to protect us. Along with this mirror reversal spell, we have included two other easy spells to reverse the curse and send it back to its originator.

“In the name of the Gods and all ye Spirits,
In the name of Cernunnos, and the light,
and the dark, and the Gods of the Netherworld.
Remove thy curse and sting from my heart and mine.
And whosoever shall be casting a curse against me,
let he/she suffer their own curse.
Let these candles, be their candles, this burning be their burning, this curse be their curse.
Let the pain they have cause me and mine, fall upon themselves.”
- Continue to burn the candles for five nights. Don’t leave candles burning unattended. On the last night burn them completely.

3. Reversal Candle Spell with Fire
To harness the cleansing and destroying power of the Element Fire, you can do a simple banishing exercise:
- Write your target (the name of the thing that’s bothering you) on a piece of paper. You may simply write “hex” or use a drawing or picture that represents what you want to banish, such as a sigil or a personal object. Some witches like to use toilet paper for this banishing spell.
If you’re trying to break a habit, you can use this as a “remove bad habits spell” too. Simply write down the habit you’re trying to get rid of.
- Create a fire in a safe place and throw it in. Make sure there is adult supervision when working with fire.

This herb helps us connect with our intellectual and spiritual sides.

How to use a reversal candle? 🕯️
If you are working on a reversal spell, you can buy a reversing candle which has been previously blessed and consecrated for the purpose. However, you don’t need to buy a special candle. You can instead just use a black candle and bless it yourself. Follow the instructions in the spells above or watch this guided meditation to learn how to guide the energy of the black candle for karmic restoration.
