Done and done!
well he really should have worn more protective clothing if he didn’t want that to happen
sounds to me like he was asking for it
Are we really sure he was actually shot and decapitated? Idk, sounds like something he would’ve made up. Guys make false decapitation accusations all the time, you know.
If he didn’t want to be decapitated, he shouldn’t have worn a shirt that showed off his neck
I mean, not all woman decapitate people. I’m not like that.

You got it!
Here are some Hoodoo spells from Catherine Yronwode’s Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic
“Cleansing Incense: Mix rue with sandalwood, frankincense, hyssop, and camphor and burn on charcoal both to cleanse the home and to smoke any
individual who wishes to be purified in its fumes…
For Purification or the Home: Benzoin resin is a fumigant said to clear out evil messes. For this reason, some people burn it in each room while performing a ritual house cleaning to spiritually cleanse a new home before
moving in. It may be mixed with camphor when thus employed…
To Spiritually Cleanse a Home: When moving into a new home, buy a new broom and sweep the premises from back to front to get rid of any trouble
remaining from the previous occupants. For a triple-strength house-cleansing, wash the premises from back to front with Chinese Wash, then sweep from back to front with a new broom, and finally, light a white candle, and burn Van Van Incense and camphor in each room…
Purifying Incense: Burned on charcoal, camphor is said to cleanse the home. It may be blended with other incenses for this purpose. When performing a full-scale spiritual house cleansing that involves sweeping from back to front with a new broom, scrubbing from back to front with Chinese Wash, and laying down salt in the comers, the last act performed is often the burning of a square of camphor alongside a white crucifix candle to “seal” the work…
Cleansing Incense: Mix cinnamon chips with frankincense, myrrh, camphor, and sandalwood to make a very strong incense. Burn this on charcoal every day for fourteen days to purify a home where bad, violent, or evil things have happened. This incense may also be used to spiritually cleanse clothing received from the dead or from unknown parties. It is said to be good for smoking the entire body too, if you have had to deal with evil people…
Home-Cleansing Incense: Gravel-sized chunks and powdered Dragon’s Blood may be burned on charcoal. Folks claim that this cleanses the home and rids the premises of evil. It is said to be particularly good when moving
into a new home, and it may be mixed with camphor resin for this purpose…
Strong Purification Bath and Floor Wash: Blend one cup Epsom salt, one cup salt, one tablespoonful saltpeter, and one crushed laundry bluing ball. Dissolve a handful in a tub of water and add one tablespoonful ammonia.
The used bath water can be made into a peaceful home cleansing floor wash…
To Spiritually Cleanse a Jinxed House: Brew a gallon of five finger grass tea and add a half-handful of Uncrossing Crystals to make up a jinx removing floor wash. Use this to wash down the walls, windows, and doors;
throw the left-over water out on the sidewalk and sweep it away…
Cleansing Incense, Floor Wash, and Bath: The Iroquois burned pine chips or resin when moving into a vacant house to drive out spirits. If mixed with camphor, the result is stronger. Pine-Sol, a commercial pine-scented cleaner, can be dosed with Van Van Oil and used as a substitute for Chinese Wash to uncross a home. Fresh pine needles in a bath remove mental negativity…
To Purify Your Home: Mix powdered angelica root with Peaceful Home
Powder and salt. Put a pinch in each comer of each room and a pinch at each outside comer of the building. This is especially good if you are moving into a house where the previous inhabitants had domestic disturbances…
Purifying Scrub: Brew burdock into a tea with broom corn, rosemary, or lemon grass, strain it, and add to it scrub water to purify the premises…
Floor Wash to Clear Off Bad Conditions: Brew hyssop into tea and add it to floor wash to clear away crossed conditions at home, reciting Ihe 51st
Psalm, and disposing of the used wash water at a crossroads.”
Though Miss Yronwode covers most popular techniques, others include dipping Holy Water (it doesn’t have to be Christian holy water, if you’re uncomfortable with that) in Rosemary or Thyme sprigs and flicking them around the house’s walls, floors, and corners while reciting a prayer or chant to the purpose, such as Psalm 51.
Hanging a lemon in any room that is particularly bad may also help.
You could create a witch’s scourge with thongs of black and/or red thread, bound by an appropriate wooden or leather handle. In the thongs, you can stick thorns of hawthorn, blackthorn, or blackberry and at the ends tie black hen feathers or white goose feathers. If you repeat a verse to banish or purify (a divine invocation will work, I don’t know what you work with some I’m trying to keep this response neutral) as you walk backwards through the house whipping the ground and walls as you go, it will force unwanted forces to flee.
Rough noise-making is a popular and ancient method of banishing unwanted spirits, but may be successfully applied to this scenario. Banging iron pots with steel spoons or forks, hanging bells about your body, and shouting or very loudly singing as you dance about the house and premises from the inside out will cause evil to run away from the noise.
Another method of noise-making includes drumming, although drumming has other protective, magical, and spiritual significance all over. Famous witch Cecil Williamson of the West Country stated that drumming with glass drumstick(s), made to have unfinished handle-ends, can be made to banish unwanted spirits.
As with any cleansing, you want to make sure your space is actually cleansed! Physically clean the new home as best as you possibly can, and let it some fresh air before you get ready to cleanse it ritually as well!
