Can you? Certainly. Should you, well no, I don’t think you should. In my experience most broken hearts (and I’m assuming you are referring to hearts broken through love and not grief) are caused by the recipient of the love not returning it. What you have to ask yourself is – is that actually something you can blame them for? If somebody fell hopelessly in love with me, they would have very little luck indeed in whisking me off for a romantic adventure, I’m happily married and I’ve got a lot of work on at the moment. If my rejection left the poor beggar heartbroken I wouldn’t think it fair at all that they projected that misery back onto me. When a love affair breaks down it is very easy to look for a source of blame but in most cases there simply is no guilty party. You can’t force somebody to love you and you can’t get angry with them if they don’t return your feelings just because you want them to. Getting stuck in the rut of revenge and reciprocated pain will do little other than delay your own healing. My suggestion is that you put your energies into something more constructive like making your own life better, not damaging theirs.
There are however, I will acknowledge, times when a love affair breaks down because one person is at fault. If somebody has deliberately caused you emotional pain then I see no reason why you shouldn’t send that pain back to them. There are a myriad of ways this could be achieved. You refer to projecting back so I’m not going to look at hexes I’d rather focus specifically on the projection element. If you want to know how to do a hex, I’ll have something on it here already or ping me a separate question.
Ok, so projecting back. The simplest way is normally to use a mirror shield. Anything sent to you is reflected back to the sender. However that doesn’t work quite so well in this scenario as our heartbreaking friend isn’t so much sending malice your way as much as causing you anguish by his actions.
As ever I can only tell you what I would do if I wanted to work this kind of spell and as you can probably guess from the tone of the answer, this isn’t a spell I’d be all that happy doing anyway. I’m very comfortable with pinging back direct malice but if I am hurt by anything other than the deliberate intention of another person I usually just walk away. But if I were going to do it there are two ways I would do it. The first is quite simply a reflecting spell. Make a poppet of the individual in question and sit yourself and him in front of a mirror. Summon up all the anger and hurt that you feel and imagine the source of it flowing from the poppet into the mirror. Sit in front of the mirror centering those emotions inside you. Focus the emotions directly into the mirror and visualize them bouncing off the mirror and back into the poppet. You might ask why not just send them directly into the poppet but the purpose of this is that you are simply sending back what you have received. Any hurt that hasn’t come directly from the source won’t be sent back to the person represented by the poppet.
Incidentally this type of thing also works well for love spells and curses but with two mirrors creating the infinite mirror loop. As the energy passes between person and poppet bouncing back each time you can get the energies stronger and stronger growing each time they bounce between the two entities picking up greater levels of energy each time. Powerful things mirrors. Probably don’t suggest you play with two mirror spells unless you’ve got a good idea what you are doing.
The second type of working would be my preference as I like to work with tangibles. Take a bowl of water and add your blood and tears. Place your hands in the bowl and visualize all your unhappiness flowing through your body into the water. When you are empty of emotions take a poppet of the individual (make it of something absorbent, not plasticine this time, use cotton or cloth) and immerse the individual into the waters to absorb that pain and negativity into himself. If you’re feeling nice hang him out to dry, if you want him to suffer leave him in the bowl until all the water has evaporated.
