During the final days of my mother, my cousin mustered the courage to suggest to my eldest sister that, perhaps, my mother needed major spiritual intervention.
After all, my mother had already survived five heart attacks and a stroke!
As I wrote in an earlier post, I found that so unbelievable. Odd. That is so beyond human capacity!
My cousin was, like me, privy to my mother’s association with black magic. She likewise had shared my view and observation.
Hence, her suggestion to my eldest sister for spiritual intervention.
My cousin reminded my sister of our mother’s close association with a long-deceased healing practitioner, Impong Trining. Oh yeah, I can never forget that elder woman’s name!
My eldest sister is a Western medical physician. It is widely accepted in the world of Western medicine that the third heart attack is the one that’s fatal.
Thankfully, she did not have second thoughts about the need for binding prayers for our mother. For our mother to finally let go.
Thankfully, too, my other siblings conceded.
Before my mother passed on, my older sister sent me a message. I didn’t get to read it until a few days after my mother had already passed.
It was a request for prayers — specifically binding prayers, which are intended to bind evil spirits and demonic forces and not torment the individual.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I have been praying for my mother’s healing — specifically for her to cut whatever ties were binding her to the Dark Forces,
“For her to finally “bitawan kung ano man ang hawak niya,” [let go of whatever evil/negative/dark article/energy that was in her possession/possessing her].
To end the cycle of wickedness.
To spare those with whom she was interacting from her displaced wrath and misery.”
The intentions of my cord-cutting prayers and exercises are quite similar. Different but similar.
I was relieved to see how the rest of the family had acknowledged what our cousin and I had not only felt or presumed and suspected, but known all along — our mother’s association with black magic and her yielding to the Dark Forces, which, unfortunately, gained control and power over our mother’s better judgment.
I’m grateful for my cousin who had the courage to broach the idea. A priest was requested to deliver the said prayers and bless my mother. [No, it’s different from the Last Rites.]
And I’m so thankful that the binding prayers were instrumental in helping my mother finally let go.
For the suffering to be over — hers and the rest of the family’s.
The following prayers, which were in my sister’s message, were requested to be said daily for our mother at 9 p.m., Manila time.
Jesus Christ, our Lord and God, I ask You to render all spirits impotent, paralyzed and ineffective in attempting to take revenge against any one of us, our families, friends, communities, those who pray for us and their family members or anyone associated with us. I ask You to bind & sever & cut off all evil spirits, all powers in the air, the water, the ground, the fire, the underground, the netherworld, any satanic forces in nature & any & all emissaries of the satanic headquarters. I ask You to bind in Your Blood all of their attributes, aspects & characteristics, all of their interactions, communications & deceitful games. I break any and all bonds, ties and attachments in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
PRAYER OF COMMAND
In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature. By the power of the Holy Spirit & by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will. I beseech You Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Your Precious Blood on my family which You have shed for us and I ask You to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Your Cross to dispose of as You see fit. I ask You to bind any demonic interaction, interplay or communications. I place __name___ under the protection of the Blood of Jesus Christ which He shed for us. Amen.
PRAYERS FOR BREAKING CURSES OF THE OCCULT
Jesus, I ask Thee to bind any evil spirits associated any and all evil curses, pacts, spells, seals, hexes, vexes, triggers, trances, vows, demonic blessings or any other demonic bondages sent against ___name___ or myself or any of our loved ones or any of our possessions and I ask Thee to bind all evil spirits separately and individually and break all seals. In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. (Thrice)
There is a Catholic site, The Catholic Warrior, that I have just come across while writing this post. It contains the following spiritual warfare prayers —
• Anima Christi

• Prayer Against Evil
• Denouncing the Occult
• Standard Deliverance
• Prayer Against Malefice
• Prayer for a Spiritual Canopy
• Prayer Against Trafficking Witches
• Binding Evil Spirits
• Removing Demonic Influence
• Prayer for Inner Healing
• Healing Your Family Lineage
• Renouncing Lodges & Secret Societies
• Closing of Deliverance Prayers
• Prayer for Protection
• Psalm 91
I was born and raised Catholic, but my spiritual beliefs and practices have evolved to be eclectic.
If you’re not too comfortable with the prayers being “too Catholic or Christian-based” and prefer it to be universal, I’m sure you can replace some words or tweak it to suit your preference.
For example, “Heavenly Father” and “God” may be substituted with “Father-Mother God.” “Creator.” “Great Spirit.”
As has been my philosophy, follow your Inner Voice and Authority — and not just follow blindly.
I have also come across some articles and sites that warn against saying binding prayers — that one may even be inviting the evil forces or bring about harmful retaliation. Saying binding prayers may “lead more to spiritual attack.”
For me, it is the energy of the intention behind the words and prayers that make it potent and effective — or not.
So, as we follow our Inner Authority and Guidance, we must practice Discernment — and be conscious of and very clear with our intentions.
My conversations with my cousin — the need for spiritual intervention and binding prayers for my mother to finally let go, as well as my mother’s earlier request for my cousin to go and seek the assistance of a spiritual healer to locate me and have me reconnect with her — these strengthened the accuracy of what the medicine woman revealed to me — the harmful spell that my mother was doing to me.
I resent that my mother — and others in the family, close friends of the family, even society in general — would not honor and respect my choices and decisions, especially going no contact.
Of course, I totally understand how and why they are behaving that way — not honoring and not respecting my choices and decisions or the difference in our beliefs, values, and principles.
But that doesn’t mean that I am ok with their invalidations, judgments, and condemnations.
No one has the right or is in any position to do that to anyone.
And for MY sake, my health and well-being, and to prevent the cycle of negativity, toxicity, and dysfunctionality from continuing, I am choosing to come from a space of Kind Understanding and Compassion — and not be sucked back into the dark pit of negativity and drama.
To continue holding the Light and bringing Light into the Darkness.
You know, as what cycle breakers, system busters, light-bringers, truth-bearers, et al are tasked to do.
To be continued – “Your mother is just waiting for you…”
