Banishing Ritual

This banishing ritual is one I use to protect my family from specific harmful intent. It should be performed during the waning moon. It is good to prevent harm from happening and to banish any ill will directed towards you. 
Banishing ritual for protection from negative influences

tools: heatproof container or cauldron
black candle
basil and garlic (for uncrossing, protection)
paper/black ink
black ribbon or string

Cast the circle.
Invoke both the God and Goddess.
Statement of purpose say:
"I am here to banish negative influences from my life.
 Right now, (name) is exerting an extremely negative force upon me. I ask for
the God and Goddess to assist me in banishing these forces and eliminating
his/her destructiveness."

Consecrate the cauldron as follows
sprinkle with salt water
"In the name of the Cernunnos and Hecate, I charge you to serve me within this circle.
I clear you of all former influences and energies, that you may be fit for the
workings of Magic here.

Do the same with the candle

On a piece of paper, write full name of person to be banished. Roll up and tie
with black string. Sprinkle with salt water and say:
"Thou creature of paper.
 By paper made, by paper changed.
Thou art not paper, but thou art negative influences in (person to be bound).
So mote it be!"

Light the black candle.
Burn the paper in the candle and place the paper in the cauldron, visualizing all negative power over you vanishing
in the flames and rising out of your world with the smoke
Sprinkle basil and garlic over the flames and say:
"Blazing force of  cleansing fire
Help me in this rite.
By air and earth,
water and fire
So be you bound
With this rite,
Your power takes flight
Sky and sea,
Keep harm from me
Cord go round,
Power be bound
Your negativity will no longer come my way.
From henceforth, your power over me is banished.
So Mote it Be!"

Let paper burn itself out while visualizing a healthy, positive thoughts
about the person. (Words of warning visualizing bad things can spread more harm than you desire) 

Cakes and Ale
Thanking the God and Goddess
Close the circle, thank the watchtowers for their protection

I hope this helps you!
Blessed be,
Lady Alice
