So let's say that I have a Hollywood-style voodoo doll. For instance, when I stick a pin in it, the subject feels a piercing pain and if I put it next to a flame, the subject feels hot and perhaps burns.
However, I've come to reconcile with the subject and, as part of burying the hatchet, I'd like to destroy the voodoo doll. But how can I do that without harming the subject? Unfortunately, I don't know how it was made (I got it from a witch in the swamp who has since disappeared), thus I can't simply reverse the creation process.
So how can I destroy the voodoo doll?
