OK, to sum it up, there is a manager at work who has been harassing me and several of my friends. I find myself filled with anger towards this person, and not just over her treatment of me, but moreso over her treatment of the people I care about. My man works for the same company, under different management, and my good friend and fellow practitioner is also directly above me in the chain of command (since this woman is above her, it puts her in an awkward position).
If it were a case of where she was just following company policy, I'd say OK, those are the rules and if you break them it's your own fault. The problem is that there is no rule. It seems like there are a few people -- all of whom were there before she was and have seniority in the company -- that she is gunning for. It's aggressive and malicious, but very subtle.
I want to do a working to counter her infulence in the office on behalf of myself and my friends, but I find that I am so angry I am having a real hard time keeping the energy clean. I did one binding in the past, that worked beautifully and had neutral and reflective energy, but I was in a different headspace when dealing with that person. This woman has me so worked up that I am having a hard time sleeping at night on the days she messes with one of us. I don't normally hold grudges, but I find myself fighting the urge to flat out hex her.
My question, I guess, is twofold:
1. If you end up pulling the energy from dark emotions like anger into a binding designed to protect others and yourself by reflecting someone's intentions back on them, is it polluted by the dark origin of the energy, or does spinning the energy into a positive purpose purify it?
2. Does anyone have suggestions for a binding ritual that would help me to focus negative energy in a more positive direction? I want to try and keep myself in a light space instead of trying to get this chick fired.
How about a poppet?
In making a poppet you communicate your problems with a person, and since it takes a REALLY LONG TIME it allows you to work out and burn up all of your anger and frusteration, especially if you have exaggerated feelings, it helps you consider all angles of the situation in direct dialogue actually communicating empathetically with this person- rather than hurting them. You fill the poppets so as - at least the way I do them- to encourage better behaviour in the subjects by using herbs and oils that help promote what they really need (like St. Johns Wort to help people who behave badly for depression...) and your own higher sense of responsability... (which results in you trying to take care of them... helping them and at the same time helping your situation) If it weren't 2 am I could explain my ceremony in depth... if you'ld like just ask
Lavender is a very soft fragrance, and is associated with tranquility and peace. That ought to keep her calm.
You have a good reason to be angry with that manager. Too often I've had problems with managers in the past that led me to quit jobs which left the issues unresolved, not to mention quitting kept me at the bottom of the chain of command everyplace I've worked, which is not a good thing. I've learned my lesson about non-action.
To take action, I would suggest that you first do a self-purification ritual to release your own negative energy into the earth and return it to you as positive energy after a grounding. Then you might choose to do a freezing ritual on her, which is not as severe as a hex.
To do this, you would begin your ritual in your usual fashion, then when you reach the part where you perform the spell, write her name on a piece of paper along with information about her, get it wet, wrap it up and put it in the freezer. A spell such as this is supposed to freeze a person in their tracks to stop her from harming you.
