Magic for Protection

Let us share some advice before you think about protection work. Cleansing is required before you begin the protection. Let me explain why. Cleansing breaks negative patterns.  It removes blockages and inhibitions to improvement.  It also clears the connection between people of inappropriate and harmful energy.  A common problem solved in part by cleansing is the “evil eye”.  This is a psycho-spiritual situation of harmful energy accumulated or dumped upon someone due to other people’s jealousy, possessiveness, or ill will.  It is like a burden that builds in the soul and psyche one stone at a time until the person is drained of energy and may ultimately lose the blessing others were jealous of or exploiting.  Cleansing helps to clear the buildup.

Basic Botanicals of Magical Protection

Many botanicals weave an aura of protection, including the ones that follow. Create your own protection spells by incorporating them.

Try betony, black cohosh, calamus/sweet flag,  five-finger grass/cinquefoil, hyssop, lavender, mugwort, peppermint, roses, rue, Saint John’s Wort, snake root, stinging nettles, tormentil, vervain, wormwood, and yarrow.

The following nine herbs allegedly withstand and protect against all spiritual and magical dangers:

  1. Eyebright
  2.  Mallow
  3. Mugwort
  4. Saint John’s Wort
  5. Vervain
  6.  Wormwood
  7. Yarrow
  8. Rue 
  9. Nettle

Plant them around the perimeter of the area needing protection, ideally in a circle. Maintain living plants in pots that may be arranged in a circle, if and when necessary. In times of spiritual danger, sit within that circle. (1)

Devil’s Shoestrings for Protection

The root, devil’s shoestrings, is used to provide magical protection. The following two spells are most effective if cast in conjunction with each other.

Ideas for use:

  • Nine roots of equal length are required; they can’t be cut to size. Knot them into a bracelet, blessing, affirming, and petitioning with each knot.
  • Grind up devil’s shoestrings and blend them with arrowroot powder. Sprinkle the powder in your clothing drawers, around your bed, and over your thresholds for round-the-clock protection.

Bell Protection Spell

Bells protect against evil. Their ringing causes many malicious spirits to flee and they are thus a primary component of exorcism rites. It’s not only their ringing tones that repel evil; bells, like broomsticks and mortars and pestles, are a discreet metaphor for the reproductive act. Creative acts of life counteract forces of destruction. For this protective ritual, four silver or iron bells are required.

1. Consecrate the bells with Fiery Wall of Protection Incense. (Pass the bells through the smoke.)

2. Charge the bells. Hold them and tell them their mission of protection, aloud if possible.

3. Hang one in each corner of the area to be protected.

4. Bells will warn when danger by spontaneously ringing.

5. Recharge bells that ring.

6. After an emergency or perhaps as annual maintenance, repeat the entire ritual.

Evil Eye 

The Evil Eye is a destructive force that emanates from certain or potentially all people. Every one of us, according to some theories, is able to cast the Eye. It is the human ability to scorch with a glance. The Evil Eye is the force of envy, jealousy, and resentment that shoots out of the human soul like a heat-seeking missile.(1)

The Eye reference may be understood in two ways, which are not mutually exclusive:

  1. The Evil Eye as omnipresent destructive abstract force, somewhat similar to The Lord of the Rings’ all-seeing Eye. Try as you may to hide happiness and good fortune, the Evil Eye is attracted, sees all, and spoils it.
  2. The Evil Eye is cast with the human eye, either intentionally by those who are jealous, destructive, and malicious by nature, or involuntarily in other circumstances.

There are also two methods of avoiding the Evil Eye:

1. Don’t boast, brag, or call undue attention to your good fortune.
2. Protection via the use of magically empowered amulets and spells.

Talisman for Protection

Please treat your amulets with care.  They may take a bit of a beating especially if you have to hide them somewhere, but don’t leave them around for disrespectful people to molest.  A protection amulet is like a small fetish, and once you make it, you are responsible for its care until you gift it to someone else.  Once you make that last pass through the smoke, it is a living being.
