Knots

By knots I don’t mean any old knot. When different knots were and still are used by different people, like farmers, sailors, climbers etc. And each knot is used according to its purpose. Similar purposes can be diskovered by applying like to like in a magical way.

Knot spells are incredibly quick and very simple once you know how to tie a few basic knots. The idea is twofold: you put a lot of concentration into doing the turns and loops correctly, and on another level, once you become very familiar with a certain knot, you no longer need to worry about its sequence, so you put an equal amount of concentration into visualizing the outcome or chanting over the knots as you tie them.

Knots
The knot magic is released when the knot is untied. This can be a good thing when you have to deal with an annoying person. You can put the message ‘leave me alone’ into the knot, and untie it (secretly) when the person is really getting on your nerves.

In this case, you only have to think of the person, so that you can raise your feelings towards the object, and then begin to make the knot. Before you pull it tight, you visualize the face of the person. Then you scream (out loud or within) ‘Leave me alone!’ Imagine that the person leaves you in peace and pull the cord a bit more to tighten the knot.

A short-term solution which can be easily undone is the chain sinnet. This is a sort of running knotwork, fashioned into a bracelet and worn around the wrist, for an instant result. The chain sinnet is quite decorative, I would suggest doing this when you need an outcome right now but might not need it in a week’s time.For example: ‘I need to find information on Napoleon by Friday’ or ‘I need enough money to pay the phone bill next week’. Such repeating knots as the chain sinnet are easy to make, and one can easily enter an altered state while creating this chain with coloured string or cord. When the goal has been achieved, simply tug one end, and the whole thing will unravel in seconds.
Another knot is the Monkey’s fist. While working this knot, you can enclose a personal item inside the knot, which acts as a protection for the person whose item it is. This knot is also quite decorative and is sometimes called a Button knot, and it works mostly for protection, either from spiritual or physical enemies. The knot itself cushions the person from all harm if kept on the person.This knot is quite heavy when wet, and will act at a distance. So as well as a personal talisman, it can be worked using a heavier cord to send any sort of spell at a distance. This is done by standing outdoors with the loose end of the cord in one hand while circling the knotted end above the head whipping up the wind, and muttering to the spirits in a low voice, exactly who it is for, or the result you need to effect at a distance.

Then, when you feel the power is with you and you are ready to go, let go of the whole thing in the direction it is needed. It might only travel a few feet, but it will hit its mark. You then pick it up and hang it in the branches of the nearest tree, only taking it down after the result has come or one month has gone by.

Another style of knot I like is the Water knot, which can be used to bring two people together. It acts very quickly.This knot was only invented in the 19th century and it is done by tying two separate pieces of cord together with two separate knots, but when the two cords are pulled in opposite directions the knots come together.If a colored bead or crystal is worked into each knot, representing the two people, when the cord is tugged the beaded knots make a rather satisfying clatter as they bang together. This can be used for many purposes, from romance to meeting a new business contact, being at the right place at the right time or getting off to a good start with the mother in law or new boss.
