Knot magic is good for getting rid of illnesses, and this spell is one that will help to do this. It works on the principle of binding the illness into the cord, so is a form of sympathetic magic combined with positive thought.

You will need

•    8-INCH LENGTH OF CORD
•    PENCIL AND PAPER
•    CONTAINER OF SALT

Method

Mark the cord six times so that you have seven equal lengths.
Take a few deep breaths and feel your energy connecting with the Earth.

Repeat the following words six times and tie a knot in the cord each time:

Sickness, no one bids you stay.

It’s time for you to fade away.

Through these knots I bid you leave,

By these words which I do weave.

Put the cord in the container of salt (this represents burying in the Earth).
Create a seal for the container with the above incantation written on the paper.

Dispose of the container, perhaps in running water.

The number six has particular relevance here: it is widely accepted as the number of the Sun, which is restorative and regenerative.
