Secret Spell


  • A black candle
  • A sheet of paper with the words: My Secret written in pencil on one side, and your actual secret on the other
  • An eraser (if there is already one on your pencil that's fine)

Light the black candle, say the following words while erasing the letter M:
"As I erase one letter away,
You'll forget my secret (the person's name) today,
And when the last letter is erased and burned,
My secret to you — shall never return!"

Snuff out the candle. Every night erase the next letter. When the letter T is erased, use the flame of the candle to burn the paper, and say: "So mote it be!"
