Prepare a small fire in your cauldron. Write down the negative actions you want to put a halt to, not the people who were responsible for them, on a small piece of parchment in black ink. Cross them all out at once in red ink.
Rumors, slander, standing stout
With this X I cross you out
I toss these words into the fire
All these lies no longer hire
All bad things done and said
Leave my life, begone, be dead
Toss the parchment into a fire.
All the evil that they say
Make it all go away
Rumors carry me no more
Begone, be dead, and be no more
Focus on the negativity being lifted, then douse the fire in water.
