5 spells to transform challenges into blessings, confusion into confidence, and roadblocks into open paths.
Chances are good no one will ever cast a malicious spell on you. But even if they do, you can transmute it to high heaven: you can take the negative momentum and redirect into something that ultimately turns out to be great.
It’s a magical law: the law of transmutation.
The same is true for negative energy of all varieties. It need never be something you resist or run from. Rather, you can think of it as dry kindling for your bright fire, burning up completely while powerfully fueling your flame of positivity and love.
With that in mind, here are 5 spells to transmute stuck or challenging energy into blessings.
All-Purpose Transmutation: The Cauldron of Lilac Fire
This ritual is from Holistic Energy Magic: Charms and Techniques for Creating a Magical Life.
The cauldron of lilac fire is an energetic tool that cleanses away negativity by transforming it into positivity and blessings. It draws upon a vibrant lilac-colored (pink-violet) light that is a dynamic combination of cool, receptive, blue lunar light and bright, active, red solar light. Together, these colored lights form a lilac-colored fire that can naturally balance and powerfully purify pretty much anything you’d like, including (but not limited to) people, objects, relationships, physical spaces, and situations.
Once you get to know the lilac fire, you can call on it by itself and mentally direct it into and round things, beings, and situations, without even closing your eyes. First, though, you’ll want to inwardly acquaint yourself with its origins and see it in all its blazing glory.
Here’s a visualization that will help you do just that. Read through it once so you know what to visualize, and then close your eyes. Begin by relaxing comfortably, with your spine straight, in a place where you won’t be disturbed.
It’s a dark night outside in a meadow, and the stars are bright. You’re standing in the center of a large sacred circle. Although you can’t see the beings that make up the outer circle with your physical eyes, you know they’re there and sense their presence. They are the primordial ancestors and the sacred spirits of nature.
At the very center of this circle is a giant silver cauldron filled with dry leaves, sticks, and logs. To your left, on one side of the cauldron, is the Moon Goddess; robed in blue, she glows with an ethereal and iridescent light. To your right, on the other side of the cauldron, is the Sun God; robed in red, he blazes with a golden-red fire. The deities gaze at each other over the cauldron with bright eyes of love. Holding their palms toward the cauldron, they ignite a bright lilac fire within it that immediately flares upward toward the stars.
As you hear the fire crackling, you sense and know that it will rage on forever. You can feel a searing power emanating from it, and you know beyond all doubt that whatever is placed within it will be powerfully cleansed, purified, and harmonized. It has the unique power to ignite stuck or frozen energy and ignite it into light, warmth, and movement. The fire has an inner wisdom that knows what is not needed and how to shift it precisely into what will be of value. It transforms challenges into blessings, confusion into confidence, and roadblocks into open paths.
The Moon Goddess and Sun God look at you, and you sense that they want you to go into the flames. With perfect love and perfect trust, you inwardly agree to this and feel yourself being swiftly lifted and placed within the fire. You allow the crackling lilac flames to move through you and around you, thawing out what is frozen, burning away what is old and dead, shining light into the darkness, and transforming all into positivity, energy, and heat.
When this feels complete, you find yourself standing outside the flames once again while they continue to rage on. Inwardly, thank the Moon Goddess, Sun God, circle of wise ones, earth, sky, and lilac fire.
Once you do this visualization, the lilac fire will dwell within you and you will be able to work with it at will throughout the day. To do so, simply call on the lilac fire and visualize it filling and surrounding your body, your home, your car, your workplace, or anything else you want to cleanse.

Redirect a Hex, Curse, or General Negativity from a Specific Source
This spell is from You Are Magical
You can’t go wrong with this spell if you set the intention simply to send any and all negative vibes right back to the sender(s). It doesn’t get any fairer than that.
- 4 small square or rectangular mirrors
- A spray bottle or mister filled with 1 part water and 1 part white vinegar
- A clean white cloth
- 4 picture or diploma stands that will hold the mirrors
- 44 fresh rosemary sprigs
Wash each mirror with the vinegar solution and cloth. Position the picture stands around you at the four cardinal directions (using a compass if necessary), facing out. Then place the mirrors on the stands so they’re all facing away from you.
Next, while moving in a counterclockwise direction, connect the mirrors by generously scattering the sprigs of rosemary in a circle. (The diameter could be approximately four to five feet.)
Sit in the center of the circle and relax. Feel all negativity drain out of your field and into the mirrors, and sense that any additional negativity being sent your way is being caught in the mirrors before entering the circle. Then visualize/imagine/sense that all energy being trapped or held by the mirrors is instantly and powerfully beamed back to the sender; never to return again.
Nine times, say:
I am clear.
Nine times, say:
I am safe.
Nine times, say:
All is well.
Then finish with:
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Blessed be. And so it is.
Stand up and turn in a counterclockwise circle nine times. Then crouch down and touch the floor with both palms.
Return the rosemary to the earth by releasing it in a moving body of water or placing it at the base of a tree. Wash the mirrors one more time with the cloth and vinegar solution, and donate them to a thrift store. Save the cleaning solution for future glass cleaning.

Cleanse Old Relationship Energy
If you’ve recently ended a relationship, or if you feel stuck on or overly connected to an old flame, or if you tend to fall into recurring relationship patterns that you’re ready to release, this spell will open you up to new possibilities and more positive romantic conditions by getting those old frequencies and patterns out of your energetic field.
Before you begin, be sure you’ve cleared out of your home any old items that were gifts from, belonged to, or remind you of old flames. Also delete any remaining old emails and texts from ex-partners, and remove them from your phone, email, and social media contacts.
For this spell, you will need:
- Copal incense
- A plate or dish
During a waning moon, safely light the incense and hold the plate or dish beneath it to catch any burning embers. Cleanse your entire aura by wafting the smoke around your body. Now move through each room and area of your living space and cleanse your home with the smoke as well. As you do so, feel that you are completely banishing and transmuting any old stuck or challenging energy related to relationships. Finish by opening your front door and cleansing the entire threshold with the smoke to symbolize that the way is clear for an ideal new relationship and relationship pattern to come in. Feel grateful and joyfully expectant. Safely extinguish the incense.

Bad Luck Banishing / Good Luck Conjuring Ritual
This ritual is from The Magic of Trees: A Guide to Their Sacred Wisdom and Metaphysical Properties.
On a full or new moon, empower nine clean, shiny coins (dimes or pennies would work great) in sunlight, and place them around the base of a ginkgo tree. If you sense that it’s okay with the tree, lovingly cut small cluster of leaves with clippers or large scissors and inwardly thank the tree. Then simply sweep your body and aura with the cutting. As you do so, feel bad luck departing and good luck arriving. Thank the tree again and place the leaves near its base.

For this purpose, try bringing a potted heather or a bouquet of heather into your space or lightly misting yourself or your space with the following mist potion.
Add nine drops heather essence to a mister of rose water, along with 5 drops ylang ylang essential oil, three drops tangerine essential oil, and a small lepidolite crystal that has been cleansed and empowered in sunlight.
