To return curses, hexes, and other negative energy back to those who target you with the same.

You Will Need:
At your Santa Muerte altar, write your name and date of birth on the center of the envelope (in the "To" section of the envelope). In the upper left corner of the envelope (in the "FROM" section of the envelope) write the following:
You don't need to be specific because you may not know who is actually sending negative energy your way. Someone may not like you, but that doesn't mean they're actually sending a curse or hex toward you. With a general statement of intent, you ensure the negative energy that's bombarding you is returned to the person or people who sent it. Now apply the postage stamp in the upper right corner of the envelope, and use your black ink pen to write in big bold letters "RETURN TO SENDER", just as you would if you were returning a letter by mail.
Crafting Your Petition
Next, light your black candle and set it over the envelope, then recite the below Return to Sender Santa Muerte magick prayer, found below. To help solidify the connection between the envelope and those who are wishing you ill, and to further show your intent of wanting the negativity to weigh down on those wishing you ill, leave the candle over the envelope to burn for about 30 minutes.
As you wait for about 30 minutes, you can use the time to grind and incorporate approximately equal parts of your dry herbal ingredients in your mortar and pestle. Be careful not to breathe in the dust of the herbs as you grind, as this may cause irritation. Grind and incorporate the herbal ingredients until a bit of each ingredient would be present in every pinch. As you grind and incorporate, you can recite the Return to Sender Santa Muerte magick prayer included below.
At the end of about 30 minutes, and when your dry herbal ingredients have been well ground and incorporated, retrieve the envelope from under the candle and pour your herbal ingredients into the envelope. Place your envelope, now containing the herbal ingredients, into the empty jar, and pour your negativity activators over the envelope in the jar. You can continue to recite the below Return to Sender magick prayer as you're combining the ingredients in the jar. Remember that when it comes to the negativity activators, less is more - only a few pinches or drops will make this petition effective.
Reflect the Negative Energy
When all the ingredients are in the jar, leave the jar on the altar in the light of the black candle's flame, and place your mirror in a position so that both the candle and the jar can be seen in the reflection of the mirror.
Make sure you aim the mirror in a direction away from your living area - it would be best to aim the mirror towards a door, window, or empty wall that leads to the outside. This symbolizes the reflection of the negative energy away from you.
Let the black candle burn all the way to completion. When it has burned to completion, the petition is complete.

Return to Sender Santa Muerte Magick Prayer
Santa Muerte, cloak of black,
take this garbage, send it back.
To anyone wishing ill,
send a dose of their own pill.
Evil forces in my life,
curses and hexes and strife,
go now back from where you came,
to those who attack my name.
Holy Death, amen.
