The Bye Felicia Ritual!


Today is #ByeFeliciaFriday in my #PeriFam and I decided that it was time to have an official Bye Felicia Ritual! Magic you can use to symbolically, energetically and magically separate from the Felicia’s in your life.

Now, if you’re someone who’s wondering “Why is this ‘Felicia’ chick always getting the raw end of the deal”, here’s why.


It comes from a reference in the movie Friday. It’s someone who is a hanger-on, always trying to get something from you, a bit of a waste of time for you…they’re annoying, they’re a drain on you. It doesn’t matter what the person’s name is. As soon as they cross the line into useless and irrelevant for you, they become Felicia and they got to go!



The Bye Felicia Ritual is a modified version of a Cut & Clear ritual from Lucky Mojo. It’s aimed at a specific person that you need to get rid of once and for all.

Let me warn you about these kinds of rituals. Mean it! This isn’t the kind of ritual if you’re just kinda sorta a little pissed at someone. This is for when you absofuckinloutely want this person out of your life for good. If you change your mind getting them back in your life is never going to go smoothly and the relationship will never be the same if they do come back.


Here’s what you need:

  • Clear and clear work surface
  • 1 white candle with a holder
  • 1 black candle with a holder
  • Lighter or matches
  • 1 piece of paper and a pen
  • Pair of scissors
  • Red Pepper Powder
  • Black Pepper Powder
  • Dried Rose Petals
  • Blow of Dirt {graveyard dirt if possible}
  • Cut + Clear oil {or Frankincense Oil}
  • Cut + Clear Incense {or Frankincense Incense} with holder/burner
  • Cut + Clear Sachet Powder {or cornstarch mixed with equal parts red and black pepper}
  • Attraction Oil {or Clove Oil}
  • Small cloth bag or wooden box
  • Extra Bowl
  • Damp Towel {for your hands}


First, take your paper and fold it in half to create a crease. On the right side of the paper write down all the things you don’t like about this person…every quality that angers you, frustrates you, and ultimately makes you want them out of your life permanently.

Next, on the left side, write out a list of the all the things you’d like in a person who would come along and take their place in your life. This is like a wishlist for the ultimate friend or partner. When you’re done set the paper to the side.

Now you’re ready to set up your work space. This is what the altar set up will look like for this ritual {excuse the crude art…}




Start by using the Cut + Clear Powder to draw a line down the center of your work surface. At the top of the line place your incense holder.

Next dress your white candle with Attraction oil. Wipe your hands with the damp towel and then use the Cut + Clear oil to dress your black candle. Place the white one to the right and the black one on the left.

Light the incense, then the white candle, then the black candle.

Have your bowl of dirt, pepper powders, and your extra blow off to the side on the right. Off to the side on the the left have your rose petals and cloth bag or box.

Next use the scissors to cut the paper in half down the crease. Place the “bad list” to the right of the powder line and the “good list” to the left of the powder.

Pick up the “bad list” and say:

This is what I now send away and out of my life.
I will no longer welcome or tolerate these things.

Now read off everything on your list out loud and with conviction. Get pissed. Yell. Let it out.

When you’re done, take your scissors and shred the shit out of this paper! Cut it into tiny little bitty bits! Get angry and let it out {but be careful and don’t cut yourself}. Put the pieces in the empty bowl.

Sprinkle red and black pepper on to the pieces of paper and then cover it with the dirt and say:

Cut and clear
Buried and gone
Dead to me
I’m moving on!

Feel free to hold your hands over the bowl and chant this over and over and much as you need to, sending that negative shitty energy into the dirt in the bowl.

When you’re done clap your hands together hard and literally shake off the energy. Blow out the black candle.

Now, move over to the “good list”. Pick up and say:

This is what I want to invite into my life.

Read the list out loud with joy, anticipation, and excitement. When you’re done place rose petals in the center and fold the paper into a nice, neat small packet. Place it in front of the candle so it catches the light of the white candle.

Keep your dominant hand {the one you write with} on the packet and say:

I cast away
All I wish to cut and clear
And draw to me
The things I wish to hold dear.

Let the white candle burn down on its own.

When it’s time to clean up take any left over white wax, rose petals, the packet and the incense ashes and place them in the cloth bag or box. You can place them someone sacred, like on your altar, and leave it there until the person fitting the bill comes into your life. When they do, take the bundle and bury it somewhere on your property to keep the relationship close.

Take the bowl of dirt, pepper and paper, along with any left over black wax and the Cut + Clear Powder somewhere off your property. A park, the woods, a clearing somewhere…anywhere that isn’t your own home. Dig a hold and dump the contents of the bowl and the left over wax and bury it repeating the incantation:

Cut and clear
Buried and gone
Dead to me
I’m moving on!

Walk away without looking back.

If you’re not really sure if this is the right ritual for your situation you might want to get a reading first, just to be sure. You can also check out my book By Bone & Wax if you want to try and resolve the relationship first.

Happy Bye Felicia-ing!
