Mailbag Monday: Disposing of a Doll-Baby

Dear Carolina Dean,

I have a doll-baby I made of my ex-boyfriend when we were together. I often used it to set spells on him to dominate him in our relationship and cause him to be faithful to me. Now that we are no longer together, I want to get rid of it, but I don't want to do it in a way that will bring any harm to him. Help!

When your doll has accomplished its assigned task and you don't need it anymore. It is important to release that part of the person's spirit before you dispose of the doll. To release the spirit, gently take the doll apart and remove the personal concerns that it contains so that they are no longer apart of the doll. When you are done, simply make the sign of the cross over the doll and say:

"Let my words which bound you, now set you free that you may return from whence you came. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen." 

Ofcourse, there are other methods, but this is the simplest of them.
Similar to candle-remains, disposing of your doll-baby encompasses a wide range of options for the spiritual practitioner. Some spells include instructions for disposing of a doll as part of the working. For example, a mirror-box containing an enemy's doll may be buried at the grave of a powerful spirit where it will be kept down.

How you dispose of your doll will largely depend on what the doll was used for. In most cases, you can simply release the spirit of the doll, remove any personal concerns and simply throw the doll away. If you are inclined, it may be burned, buried, thrown in running water, or left at a crossroads.

In some cases, the craftsmanship of a doll may be so beautiful and elegant that you will want to keep the doll as a work of art to be admired. In this case, release the spirit of the doll, and remove any personal concerns. Then you can display your doll as desired.

I strongly suggest that you dispose of your doll in a manner consistent with the work. If the doll was for a positive purpose and worked well for you, it should not come to a violent end such as burning or being thrown in water but rather buried with honor.  If you are unsure of how to dispose of your doll, perform a divination or petition your spirits for answers.
