Expelling Malefic Attachments | Tinkering Bell #1

I’m starting a new video series on my YouTube channel, called Tinkering Bell. I’m Bell (or at least that’s what people who can’t seem to pronounce “Benebell” call me) and throughout these videos, I’ll be showcasing my metaphysical and esoteric…tinkerings. Hence, Tinkering Bell. The videos are going to be practicum-centered tutorials that share my particular idiosyncrasies in the Craft.

This is the first installment of the series, on expelling malefic attachments.

Episode #1 Description

When I say “expelling malefic attachments,” I’m keeping that terminology overbroad to cover a lot of different ground. If you’re feeling energetically weighed down, unduly influenced in a way you intuit yet can’t explain and it’s been detrimental to you, or you’re sensing atrophic, less-than-positive vibes around you that you’d like to get rid of, then consider trying what I do for myself: a fifteen-day integrated self-cleanse.

This total mind, body, and spirit self-cleanse is meant to eradicate any string of bad luck, negativity in your life, remove hexes, exorcise unwanted spirit attachments, neutralize the evil eye, and detox from what Chinese feng shui masters would call poison arrows.


At timestamp 19:01, the English translation appearing across the screen is incomplete. It should read: “By the power of this protective recital, may my misfortunes due to stars, demons, harmful spirits, and ominous planets be prevented and destroyed.” (from the Maha Jaya Mangala Gatha, or Great Verses of Auspicious Victory, an exorcistic sutra). You can read more about the invocation on page 211 in my book The Tao of Craft.


At timestamp 12:13, cryptic white text in brackets appears across the screen (“[cue b-roll footage while I narrate via voiceover…]”) as I talk about gluten. The text was intended to be an internal and private production note only, to be deleted post-production. However, I forgot to delete it after completing that section of the video and in my review of the video pre-upload, missed it. Hence, the cryptic white text at 12:13.

Note. At timestamp 9:03, I discuss alternatives to the Chinese protection talisman shown above, which would include passages from holy books. As explained in the video, if you’re using the Chinese protection talisman specifically (the JPGs linked above), then it’s okay to toss these out with the trash at the close of the fifteen day expulsion period. However, if you’re opting to use passages from holy books for your home protection and energy filtering talismans, then you may need to reconsider that. Generally, if you’re making reference directly from holy books, then to discard of the talismans, you would need to bury them rather than toss with the trash.

Homework: Your Practicum

Following each installment of the series will be a suggested practicum, or homework, for you to try out. Homework material presumes that you are an occult practitioner who is working on developing your craft.

Aura and Space Clearing Spray: Using the recipe provided as reference, make the aura and space clearing spray. If you’re an inexperienced novice, then please follow the recipe instructions as closely as possible for the first time you make the spray. Then, after you’ve tried the recipe as-is at least once, go ahead and experiment with modifications. When you deviate from the recipe, take notes and record your own recipe. After some trials, memorialize a final recipe for your personal go-to aura and space clearing spray. Create a page or page spread for it in your grimoire.

Fifteen-Day Mind, Body, Spirit Self-Cleanse: Perform the fifteen-day total mind, body, and spirit self-cleanse. During the fifteen day period, take notes on your observations, impressions, feelings, perceptions, dreams, intuitive hits, everything. Take the time to walk the perimeter of your home, inside and out, and just study. See if you can feel any differences in impression. Record all observations and notes. After the trial, if you feel that such a cleanse, or your personal variation on it, has been beneficial to you, then finalize the steps of your self-cleanse and create a page or page spread for it in your grimoire, documenting your instructions for the self-cleanse.


Hi, Rose.

Let’s shout out Rose from RoseRed Tarot and the TarotVisions podcast.

She’s the reason I’m wearing a green fairy costume through the opening and closing sequences of the Tinkering Bell video series. Rose also sent me a little blonde fairy wig, but it did not fit over my head and crazy amount of dark hair, so I couldn’t model in the wig.

Open letter…


You know this isn’t over, right? Karma’s in play, dearie.

  7. I do something similar to my home every month, but I love your Sigils. They’re definitely different than the ones I grew up around. Mine are more Teutonic/Runic. That said…I’m so excited to see this!

    I’m very curious to know what the ( I’m not sure if I’m going to use the correct wording here) etemology of this fu sigil is? Is it included in The Tao of Craft?

    I really want to use it but it’s Important to me to understand it’s meaning glyph by glyph as well as the surround border. Naturally I’ll be looking into it myself but I thought the chance to hear it directly from you would have more value and meaning. I love how your book breaks down many of your example fu talismans. If this is something I just somehow missed in the video or text I sincerely apologize!

    Thank you thank you for your time and all the wonderful resources!

      So after further research I was able to “translate” a lot of this fu thru your bone script oracle cards you so graciously provided us for free. But of course any insight you can give would still be highly valued! Though I can just hear you now saying something like “it’s all about intent! Don’t trip!” Haha

    Hi Benebell,

    During the expulsion period I developed a skin rash. All things considered my health is perfectly normal so this was a surprise. Are there any chances this has to do with the expulsion and cleansing of my home and body? Note, not allergic to salt bath, nor seeking medical advice.

    Though it is not my tradition (I don’t really have a true tradition), daoism tends to resonate quite well with me. So I’m heading for the yijing readings. First hexagram that came to my mind was #40 解 deliverance – because it is about removing blockages and freeing yourself from negative attachments; just like a thunderstorm gives relief.
    However, there are more yin lines than yang ones. Does that make it unsuitable for this purpose or is it rather like #51 (I mean, it also contains thunder)?
    To be on the save side, I’m gonna use #35 for my first trial of this energy cleansing ritual.
    Thank you very much for providing it.
