The tradition of knot magic is at least 4000 years old. Knot magic exists all around us whether we are aware of it or not. More than anything it is a way for us to focus our thoughts, and by our focusing our energy bring our thoughts into being.

Perhaps the idea of knot magic seems a bit odd to you, maybe even unbelievable? But then, why were there so many laws and statutes against binding images or performing knot magic several hundred years ago if there were not some reality to this simple task?

At one time any ornaments twisted, knotted or plaited in any way were considered heathen and idolatrous in Germany, while magical knots were frequently carved into churches to guard against the entry of pagan magic or ‘spirits’.

Knot Magic

The action of making the knot itself isn’t as important as the need behind the knot. You must think hard and deep on your need as you tie your knot, sending your energy and emotion into the knot. The reason why knot magic has been popular for such a long time is that the technique is simple, fast, fairly diskrete but also very powerful.

In the creation of our healing bags we use knot magic and a powerful natural fiber (hemp) to tie the cotton bags shut. We twist the cord around the bag 3 times (3 being a number for healing), then we tie 3 knots, then we twist 3 times again, tie 3 knots again, and a 3rd and final time we twist 3 times, then tie 3 knots – 3 x 3 – all the while focusing on the need and visualizing the knots strengthening the energy vibrations of the items in the bag to help with the need as requested.

To further strengthen the power of a knot it could be tied from specially braided colored cording instead of the hemp. The colors would be chosen according to the need. Braid nine colored threads, three by three. Then you braid the three braids together. Knot spells are often placed close to the target of the spell to get the maximum effect. For the best possible result, it should be worn by the person.

The majority of modern witches know of one or two ways to use knots in magic. There are many kinds of knot magic that are used to protect or help, for example, the midwives of yesteryear. If the birth was difficult, all types of knots in the home were untied and all the women let their hair down. This was supposed to make the body of the mother loosen its knots as well, and make the birth easier.

As soon as the baby was born, the umbilical cord was cut and tied. At the same time, the midwife said a small prayer or blessing, so that the future health and happiness of the baby would be secured.
