Just to be clear - don't substitute anything, and don't reply asking if you can change the spell. Please perform it as it stands.
For this spell you'll need:
Preparing the Items
Cut a slit lengthwise down the tongue - deep enough to shove stove in it. Place the tongue on the plate and set it aside.
Take the brown paper and cut a 3" x 3" piece for each target of your spell. One piece of paper will be dedicated to each target. On the papers, write the target's name 3 times stacked, then turn it counter-clockwise and write "Shut your fucking mouth!" across the names three times, criss-crossing them. Dress each one of these name papers by dabbing STFU! Oil on the four corners and center. Dust each paper with a little bit of STFU! Powder. Then fold each paper in half away from you, turn it counter-clockwise 1/4 turn. Repeat that two more times, for a total of three folds. Set these aside.
Take the candle and carve the targets' names on the candle along with "Shut your fucking mouth!" Dress the candle with STFU! Oil by stroking the oil away from you along the length of the candle praying for God to tie your enemies' tongues, to shut the mouths of the wicked and for them to suffer the consequences of their gossip. Dress the candle with some STFU! Powder my sprinkling it on the candle.
Assembling the Beef Tongue Shut Up Spell
Take the folded name papers and insert them into the slit in the beef tongue. Now, sprinkle some ground up alum, sulfur and slippery elm into the slit and all over the top of the tongue. Thread the needle with black thread and use it to sew up the edges of the tongue forcing it to fold in on itself capturing the items inside the slit. Tie up the tongue very thoroughly with the string, praying the entire time for your enemies' tongues to be tied, and lashed shut. Insert the candle into the tongue so it is standing upright. Sprinkle the rest of the STFU! Powder all over the tongue.
Now light the candle, and watch over it as the candle starts to melt the wax and take light. Pray for God to stop the mouths of your wicked enemies, for their tongues to swell in their mouths, for their words to become sour and bitter and turn against them, and for them to shut up and stop speaking against you.
Let the candle burn all the way down. Once it is done, take the beef tongue to the cemetery and dispose of it by either tossing it over the wall of the cemetery or by burying it over the grave of a spirit that agrees to assist you (as determined by a form of divination). If you opt to employ a spirit to handle the situation, make sure to pay the spirit with some whiskey and a silver dime.
As an option, you can also fill a large glass jar with vinegar and store the beef tongue in there to make your enemies' words turn against them and to make them suffer for what they have said.
If you're not comfortable doing this spell, you can hire me to do it for you as part of a Rootworking Consultation. When I work this spell I add in some elements of traditional African magical practice from Palo.
