I’m starting off my new Blog with this binding spell sent out to some peeps in November 2006. With the election of 2008 behind us, it seems like a perfect time to repeat it. Time to make sure they DO THE RIGHT THING. Time to follow-up with some suggestions to the cosmos while the elected shuffle into their new offices and White House.

This spell was inspired by the Bad Religion song American Jesus (see lyrics below).

[The BR guys are staunch atheists and might be appalled at this use of their song but I find that quite amusing.]

Lyrics to: American Jesus

From CD: Recipe for Hate, Bad Religion,1993

Written by: Brett Gurewitz and Greg Graffin 

(If you want to hear the actual song, be forewarned, it’s punk, baby!)

“I don’t need to be a global citizen,

because I’m blessed by nationality,

I’m a member of a growing populace,

we enforced our popularity 

there are things that seem to pull us under

and there are things that drag us down,

but there’s a power and a vital presence

that’s lurking all around

we’ve got the american jesus

see him on the interstate,

we’ve got the american jesus

he helped build the president’s estate.

I feel sorry for the earth’s population

‘cuz so few live in the U.S.A,

at least the foreigners can copy our morality,

they can visit but they cannot stay,

only precious few can garner our prosperity,

it makes us walk with renewed confidence,

we’ve got a place to go when we die

and the architect resides right here.

we’ve got the american jesus

overwhelming millions every day

(exercising his authority)

he’s the farmer barren fields,

the force the army wields,

the expression in the faces 

of the starving millions,

the power up above.

he’s the fuel that drives the clan,

he’s the motive and the conscience

of the murderer

he’s the preacher on TV,

the false sincerity,

the form letters that written by

the big computers,

he’s the nuclear bombs,

and the kids with no moms

and I’m fearful that 

he’s inside me

(In God we trust)

(because he’s one of us) 

(break down, cave in) 

(we can redeem your sins) 

(strong heart, clear minds) 

(and infinitely kind) 

(you lose, we win) 

(he is our champion!)” 

Contemplate the words and concepts of the song for a few days before doing the spell:

– What does “amerikan jesus” mean to you?

– Are there certain aspects of aj you want to bind?

– Are you willing to examine parts of aj that may have become part of your own psyche?

– Can you discern the perverted aj from a spiritual jc?


*popsicle sticks, cardboard or paper that can be glued or taped together to form a cross. It should be large enough to write on.



*fireproof cauldron/can for burning or bag for freezing

*optional: small candle and/or incense of your choice


Do this spell before or around the time of the inauguration. 

I’d appreciate it if you’d let me know if you plan to do it. 

(You don’t have to let me know if you think this is whacked and/or that I’ve gone over the edge; that’s not news.)


Call in whatever Goddesses, Gods and/or other assistants you want.

Light your incense and/or candles. Don’t light a big-ass candle that’s gonna burn for days; you want the candle to be done when you finish binding or shortly thereafter.

Make a cross with the popsicle sticks, cardboard or paper, taped or glued together.

Write qualities of aj that you would like to bind such as:

* bigotry

* competition

* dishonesty

* greed

* hubris

* imperialism

* pedophilia

* profiteering

* racism

* sexism

Wrap the string around the cross as you focus your thoughts and energy on the qualities you are binding.

Do a chant, if you’d like.

Burn it or freeze it right away.



Later you could do a spell to call in the qualities you’d like to see out there, invoking the energy of (Amerikan) GODDESS.

Let me know how it goes!
