For help in letting go of a smoking habit.
***Magick is a tool, not a cure. Always use magick in conjuction with modern medicine.
You Will Need
Prepare the Herbs
At your Santa Muerte altar, in the light of the yellow candle's flame, grind and incorporate approximately equal parts of your herbal ingredients, the basil and black pepper, in your mortar and pestle. You ultimately want enough of a mixture to surround the base of the yellow candle, plus a few pinches extra to sprinkle over your smoking paraphernalia. As you grind and incorporate the herbal ingredients, recite the below included Stop Smoking Santa Muerte magick prayer, and try to focus on your intent of giving up your smoking habit. Be careful of breathing in the dust of the herbs as you grind, as it may cause irritation.
Encircle the Candle
Next, slowly sprinkle your herbal mixture around the base of the yellow candle. As you sprinkle the herbal mixture, continue to recite the below magick prayer as you focus on your intent of giving up your smoking habit. Remember to save a pinch or two for the next step.
Sprinkle the Smoking Paraphernalia
Place your smoking paraphernalia on or near your altar, so they may rest in the light of the yellow candle's flame. Sprinkle one or two pinches of your herbal mixture over each item of paraphernalia - remember that less is more. After sprinkling the paraphernalia, again recite the below magick prayer.
Resting the paraphernalia in the light of the candle's flame will allow the intent of your petition to burn away and weaken the power the items have over you. Sprinkling the items with one or two pinches of the herbal mixture further symbolizes your intent to purify the items from your life and to break the habit which the items represent.
Allow the candle to burn to completion.
Disposing of Petition Materials
When the candle burns to completion, you may keep and use the paraphernalia as normal - if the petition was a success, then you should notice your desire to use the paraphernalia diminishing over time. You may dispose of everything else by using the instructions outlined in my post How to Dispose of Magick Trash.
Stop Smoking Santa Muerte Magick Prayer
Holy Death, to you I pray,
end this habit right away.
Make my will as strong as oak,
free me from these chains of smoke.
Kill my cravings, kill them fast,
burn this habit down to ash.
