Friends On The Other Side Curse

Intent: To cause nightmares for someone who is insulting you, gossiping about you, or otherwise making your life difficult by running their mouth. Inspired by "Friends on the Other Side" from The Princess and the Frog.

    Don’t you disrespect me, little man
    Don’t you derogate or deride
    You’re in my world now, not your world
    And I’ve got friends on the other side


You will need:

    Photo of the person, or a blank cloth poppet
    Target’s hair or nails, if you can get them
    Black marker, or needle and black thread
    Valerian (for a constant groggy feeling)
    Juniper Berries (to cause visions)
    Lobelia (aka Gagroot, to make them choke on their words)
    Allspice (to alleviate diarrhea of the mouth)
    Cypress (to cause dreams to become nightmares) [Substitute for Yew]
    Vinegar or Urine
    Jar with tight-fitting lid
    Coins or food offering

Step One: Take the photo or poppet, and the black marker or needle and thread, and draw X’s or sew a series of cross-stitches over the mouth. The number will depend on how badly the target has been slandering you. For worse transgressions, use more X’s.

Say:

    I bind your mouth, I bind your voice
    Because you made the foolish choice
    To insult, slander, and seek to maim,
    But now it is YOU who will be shamed.


Step Two: Place the poppet or photo, and the hair and nails into the jar. Add the Lobelia and the Allspice. While adding the Valerian, Juniper Berries, and Cypress, say:

    No more words and no more speech
    But dreams I place within your reach
    Into your head these herbs will send
    A nightmare world without an end
    You chose to derogate and deride
    Now meet my friends on the Other Side


Step Three: Fill the jar with vinegar (or urine, if you prefer), and seal it. Wax or duct tape around the rim will prevent escape.

Step Four: Take the jar to a cemetery. Bury it inside the gate. Leave the coins or food as an offering for the dead who dwell there. Walk away without looking back. Cleanse any and all tools used in creating and burying the jar before putting them away. You may want to take a shower yourself, and rinse with an infusion of Basil, Bay and Rosemary to make sure nothing sticks to you.
