To keep a romantic partner faithful.
You Will Need:
At your Santa Muerte altar, light the red candle, so you may work in its light. Combine in your mortar and pestle approximately equal amounts of the three herbs listed above - the rose, coriander seeds, and caraway seeds. Grind and incorporate the herbs as you recite the below included Lover Don't Cheat Santa Muerte magick prayer, and focus on your intent of keeping your lover faithful. When all the herbal ingredients have been well incorporated, place the mortar and pestle off to the side.
Crafting the Magick Charm:
Next, place the loose thread from your target lover's underwear in the center of the red patch of fabric, and sprinkle a single pinch of the herbal ingredients over the loose thread. Fold the fabric in half, then use the needle and thread to sew the fabric shut. In effect, you are creating a cloth pouch which contains the loose thread and a pinch of herbal ingredients securely inside. As you work to sew the cloth shut around the loose thread, you may continue to recite the Lover Don't Cheat Santa Muerte magick prayer.
When the fabric has been sewn shut with the loose thread and pinch of herbs inside, use the pick, pin, or small knife to poke a hole through the cloth pouch, then slip the latch of the lock through the fabric pouch and secure the lock closed. Place the lock, which is now connected through the red cloth pouch, so it touches the base of the red candle. Also position the key so it touches the base of the candle.
Sprinkle what remains of the dry herbal ingredients, pinch by pinch, in a circle around the base of the candle, sprinkling over the lock and key which are touching the base of the candle. Recite the below Lover Don't Cheat magick prayer as you sprinkle the herbs.
Allow the candle to burn to completion. Once burned to completion, what remains of the candle may be treated as regular trash.
Using the Magick Charm:
When the red candle has burned to completion, retrieve the lock and pouch charm and place the set near your bed - such as under the mattress or in the nightstand next to the bed. Take the key and put it on your key chain with your house keys and car keys - in other words, store the key just as you would store all the other keys that protect what is yours.
If you are ever separated from your lover for a period of time and are worried about their ability to stay faithful, you may hold the lock charm in your hands and recite the Lover Don't Cheat magick prayer three times, then return the lock charm to the place where you store it.
Discarding the Charm:
When you no longer require the energy from this magick charm, simply deconstruct it. Unlock the lock to free the red cloth pouch, rip the pouch open, and remove the loose thread that was placed within. Anything organic may be returned to the Earth, and everything else treated as regular trash.
Lover Don't Cheat Santa Muerte Magick Prayer
Santa Muerte, cloak of red,
lock my lover to my bed.
Keep him / her faithful just to me,
keep him / her close, don't let him / her cheat.
When his / her eyes wander astray,
yank his / her leash right back my way.
Holy Death, amen.
