I also have a question regarding the Hot Foot Candle Spell.
It's a funny situation: my husband and I have been having long term trouble since we got married. I've done the Honey Jar Spell and the Nation Sack, and things have been steadily improving ever since- it's wonderful. And yet, there's one more complicating matter that has to be settled before I can move on with other spell work (and maintaining the Jar and Nation Sack, of course...this whole marriage situation is an ongoing project, trying to redress several issues at once without overtaxing myself or "muddying" my work).
We have a male roomate who lives with us, who is my husband's friend, and moved in his girlfriend about a year later. While his girlfriend is a sweet, intelligent and beautiful person, the male roomate is an utterly selfish, self-centered, misogynistic ogre. For two years, I've been trying to tolerate his presence- I tried being nice and being friends, and he walked on me and my husband. He treated this house like it was his, not mine and my husbands. I stood up for myself, and he began interfering with me and my husband's relationship, trying to insinuate himself between us! I got nasty after that, and he stopped doing overt attempts, but still passive-aggressively tries to come between my husband and I, to the point of trying to store his clothing in our personal closet. He's a real piece of work. My husband feels beholden to him since he owes him a considerable amount of money, but I have no such qualms, and after a huge argument, my husband has promised (twice) that he will never see or talk to this person again after we are rid of him, and that it will happen one way or another by December...now all I need to do is get rid of him, and I'm aiming for sooner than December.
So, I am considering the Hoot Foot Spell (putting the oil in his shoes and socks, washing down his walls and floor and bed with the floorwash/bath crystals, the spell itself, etc.), but I have some concerns I want to address first:
1. I realize that if I Hot Foot him, I will probably lose contact with his girlfriend, who is my friend. I understand this is a necessary loss, sadly- I simply cannot abide him living in this house anymore and coming between my husband and I. My concern is- the Hot Foot will just drive her away with her boyfriend, and not hurt her, correct? While I don't mind (to be honest) if the jerk runs into considerable trouble, I don't want to cause him any great harm, and I want to cause her minimal to no harm at all- especially since she's such a nice person and works so hard doing what she does (medical student, putting up with his crap). I just want him to go away and stay away for good.
2. I know that after they are gone, I will have to wash the room down with Chinese Wash or something similar. I regularly take baths in Rue and Hyssop, and considered making a vigil light for purification after the work is done. Any other suggestions?
3. Should I suspend work on the Honey Jar and Nation Sack while doing this spell? Or, after a purification bath, can I continue the work? I don't plan on doing the spell until the Honey Jar and Nation Sack have enough work put into them for me to be comfortable leaving them for a little while, but if I can continue it all, I would like to.
Thanks for listening to my Noob Questions- I read this forum from time to time and I really enjoy it, and learn a lot from it. You all are very knowledgeable and helpful (and polite- something not often seen on the internet) and I appreciate it very, very much.
