Personal Success Poppet

Share: Twitter

This poppet will help you land a new job, get a promotion, or achieve that special goal. You will need to make a doll out of a piece of your clothing. Coarsely grind equal amounts of the following herbs: cinnamon, bay, marigold, orange peel, rosemary, witch hazel. Fill the poppet with the herb mixture and sew up the opening. Affix a full length photograph of yourself to the front of the poppet. Tie a bright yellow silk sash around the poppet. Be sure the poppet is well-made and pleasing to look at. Place the poppet in the center of your altar and consecrate it for personal success.

Items needed:

One yellow or gold candle

Success incense

A shadow box large enough to hold the poppet and 60 small items.


Start this rite on a Sunday morning during the waxing moon. Light the candle and incense. Pass the poppet through the incense smoke and then the candle flame chanting six times:


With air and smoke, flame and fire
I now consecrate thee to my desire.

Hold the poppet close to your mouth. Speaking softly and with great intent, breathe your desire into the poppet.
Repeat the process six times, each time passing the poppet through the incense and the flame of the candle as you repeat the chant. Allow the candle to burn for one hour.

Each day for the next 59 days, light the candle and speak of your desire. Then place an object that represents your desire next to the poppet in the box.

For example, if you wanted a pay raise, place a picture of your boss in the box next to the poppet. The next day, place some of his or her handwriting in the box, then a copy of a paycheck with your new salary on it, and so on.

At the end of the last day, allow the candle to burn out. Arrange all the items in the box along with the poppet in a manner that portrays your desire. Hang the shadow box on the wall near your desk, altar, or bed.
