- 4 hot chili peppers, whole
- Dark rum
- A small piece of broken glass
- A black ceramic bowl
- Announce loudly to the Voodoo gods (Shango in particular) what your barrier is, and ask them to help remove it. Set the piece of glass into the bottom of the bowl, then drop in the 4 peppers. Ask again that the obstacle be gone from your life (be loud) and pour the rum into the bowl to cover the peppers. Save a little rum and take a drink for yourself.
Take the bowl outside and leave it under a tree, the bigger the better. After a night outside, pour everything out into the Earth.
