The Witches Ladder can be used/adapted to suit endless requirements. Shape the basic format to suit your intention. It can be as simple as a plain piece of cord (of any length) – or even a long piece of grass. It can be as elaborate as several colours of cord with many different object tied in along it’s length.
Begin by selecting your cord/s and any objects you will be using, then cleanse and consecrate them. Say:
“Behold, I am One with the Powers of the Universe”
Pass your hand over the cord/s three times tuathail, saying:
” Behold, I cleanse and purify you”
Pass your hand over the cord/s three times deosil, saying:
” Behold, I do bless and consecrate you to this purpose”
Concentrate on your goal/intention. See the cord glowing with bright, white light. Tie the knots one by one as you chant the count:
” By knot of one, the spell’s begun.
By knot of two, no power undo.
By knot of three, so mote it be.
By knot of four, open the door.
By knot of five, it comes alive.
By knot of six, the spell is fixed.
By knot of seven, the boon is given.
By knot of eight, decreed by fate.
By knot of nine, now is it mine!”
Hang the Witches Ladder in a place where you will see it often. Once your intention has been manifested, destroy the cord (bury or burn) with a thanksgiving ceremony.
