The object of binding
Ritual: Binding is a practical example of how
a normally harmful and strictly "hands off"
form of magick can be an effective and perfectly harmless magickal procedure.
If a friend wants to borrow something, and you feel hesitant in letting
out of your hands, but you must, take the object (if it's something small
to move around and hold) and a cord.
Bind the object to your body -- literally, physically tie the object to
Stand or sit a few minutes, visualizing yourself receiving the object back
the person you are loaning it to.
Afterward, cut the cord (do not untie the knot!) and loan the object
you'll once more have it in your possession.
If the object is too large, such as a car, take a piece of cord, tie your
hand or arm
to a piece of it (such as the steering wheel, antenna, and so on) and proceed
Put the cord in a safe place until the object returns.
