To curse an object, so it brings negativity and chaos to whoever receives it.
You Will Need:
Cursed Object - this is the object you want to curse and give to your intended target. For best results, choose an object that is not likely to be "re-gifted" or thrown away. You want the object to stay as close to the target as possible for as long as possible, so put some thought into it, and acquire an object that the target would actually like.
Box - large enough to hold your cursed object.
Black Cloth - enough to cover the bottom of the empty box, and create a soft bed on which you can place the object you want to curse.
1 Black Candle - to appeal to the energy of the Black Cloaked Santa Muerte of curses and hexes.
At or near your Santa Muerte altar, light the black candle, so you may work in its light. First, fold the black cloth into the bottom of the empty box. This will essentially create a soft bed upon which you can place the object to be cursed.
Next, sprinkle a few pinches of each herbal ingredient over the black cloth in the box - a few pinches of black mustard seed, a few pinches or chunks of the mandrake root, a few pinches of tansy, and a few pinches of tobacco. With each herb you drop into the box, recite the below included Cursed Gift Santa Muerte magick prayer.
Cursing the Object:
Take the object which you intend to curse and place it in the box, on top of the bed of black cloth and sprinkled herbs. As you place the object in the box, again recite the below included Cursed Gift Santa Muerte magick prayer.
Once again, sprinkle a few pinches of each herbal ingredient into the box, this time over and around the object, and recite the magick prayer as you sprinkle each herb.
Leave the box, which now contains the object surrounded by the blend of four herbs, to rest in the light of the burning black candle. The box should remain open, or uncovered, so the light from the burning black candle can also touch the object which you are enchanting with the intended curse. Allow the black candle to burn to completion.
Sending the Curse:
When the black candle burns to completion, the curse is ready to be sent. Sending this curse is as easy as giving the cursed object to your desired target.
Before setting out to visit your target and deliver this cursed gift, hold the box in your hands and pray over it one last time the Cursed Gift magick prayer. Try to visualize your target holding or using the cursed gift as they experience physical and emotional suffering - unable to sleep, unable to find physical comfort, unable to find happiness or peace, et cetera.
At this point, remove the item from the box, clean off any remnants of the herbal mixture, and set off to deliver the cursed gift to your target. You can deliver the object in person, give the object to someone else to deliver to the target, or place the object in the mail. If you will be boxing the object for delivery, then use a new box, not the same box you used in the steps above.
When the cursed gift is in the hands of your target, then the curse has been delivered, and will remain in effect for as long as the target keeps the object. If the target throws the gift away, gives the gift to someone else, or otherwise removes the gift from their personal space, then the curse would be considered broken.
