Spell for Today – Psychic Protection Spell

Psychic Protection Spell

This is an ancient spell for repelling psychic attacks. If you believe you are under psychic attack, you will need to follow the directions of this spell closely and repeating the magical words and continuing to recite them until the attack subsides.
The Spell:

You will need:

The magic words
A place for quiet concentration
Privacy (initially)

If you believe you are under psychic attack, repeat the following words and continue to recite them until the attack subsides.

Repeat as follows:

Keeper of the keys, eternal spirit of the moon, I summon thee by the authority of the spirits of darkness and light. Come now and hold back this force, which threatens. Thrust out your mighty hand that none may pass but those proved friend not foe. Grant passage not to those who would do harm, nor allow they suffer upon my mind their evil wills. Keeper of the keys, eternal spirit of the moon, stand fast.

Psychic attacks are normally brief due to their very nature. Only the most powerful of attackers would be able to sustain an enduring attack.

Note: If you find you are under frequent psychic attack, it would behoove you to work several long-lasting protection spells for the warding-off of evil intrusions and for protection of one’s home. The spell for Protection of One’s Mind is an excellent deterrent spell and offers continuous general psychic protection.

Spell for Today – Strengthen Your Psychic Shield

 

The night before the Full Moon, find a place where your altar will not be disturbed for 24 hours. Put the cauldron in the center with a red candle on the right side, black candle of the left side, and white candle in the back; but do not light them yet.

Sprinkle a mixture of equal parts of elder blossoms, marjoram, mint and rue in an unbroken circle around the cauldron. Into a tiny vial, measure equal drops of clove, frankincense, jasmine, and lavender. Set the sealed bottle in the cauldron and leave until the night of the Full Moon.

On Full Moon night, take a cleansing bathe and robe yourself in white. Carry a good protective or purification incense through every room in the house. Make certain that the smoke drifts into closets.

Return to the altar and light the candles. Take up the dagger or sword. Face the East and raise the sword in salute. To salute in this manner, simply hold the sword point upward in front of you. Say:

By the power of the rising sun, all evil in my life is done.
Turn to the South, salute, say:
By the power of darkening night, my shield is strong, my armor tight.
Turn to the North, salute, say:
By Full Moon in blackening sky, I am not alone. My help is nigh.
The Goddess’s hands around me stay, To keep me safe by night and day.
Begone, foul spirits, unbidden here. I send you back, I do not fear.
For I have won. I am set free. You have no further power over me.

Face the altar and take up the vial of oil. Put a drop of oil on your finger and anoint your forehead, heart, solar plexus, wrists and ankles. As you do this, visualize a shining blue suit of armor slowly descending over your body until you are entirely protected. Cap the bottle and store in a safe place.

 

Thank the Powers for their help and extinguish the candles.
Apply the oil and repeat the chants whenever you feel the armor is slipping.

The Witches Magick for Sunday, March 24 – HOME PROTECTION WARD

HOME PROTECTION WARD

A ward is something that protects or defends, and when placed around a home it works like a barrier, preventing negativity from entering. However, you have to check on this regularly, just like a wall used to defend a city. How often you need to refresh your ward is completely dependant on your neighborhood and the sort of things following you home. I live in a nice little neighborhood, but right down the street is a not so nice one. Last December my car was stolen from our driveway while I was home by some kids that lived down the road. That being said, my ward needs refreshing rather often. Two to four times a year is usually good, but just remember to keep an eye on it. If you notice it needs refreshing, take down the old ward and reconstruct it.

My favorite ward ritual also comes from The Way of the Hedgewitch by Arin Murphy-Hiscock. Like her threshold protection spell, its easy, quick, and informal.

Supplies
Candle with holder
Dish of water
Dish of earth or salt (you will be sprinkling this outside)
Incense of your choice
Matches or lighter

Directions
Light the candle and, beginning at your threshold or where ever you deem fit (I started in my back yard at the fence since it was easiest for me), walk clockwise around the outside of your home. As you do say:

“I build this boundary with fire.”

Repeat this over and over until you have walked completely around your home.

Next pick up the dish of earth. Again, walk around your home sprinkling dirt as you go.

Repeat:

“I build this boundary with earth.”

Pick up the incense and light it. Walk around your house for the last time repeating:

“I build this boundary with air.”

Standing at your threshold (or starting place), reach out your hands and visualize a shield of energy forming a bubble around your home and property. As you visualize say:

“Fire, water, earth, and air,
Guard this home against all ill will and danger.
Keep this house and those who live in it safe.
I declare this ward to be raised and active.”

And there you have it, a home protection ward! Now sometimes a ward needs to be dissolved. These times would be to refresh a ward, if you move, or if there are major changes that occur in your life or the life of the house, i.e. career change and remodeling.

To disolve a ward, walk counter-clockwise beginning at the same starting point you did to construct the ward. As you do so hold out your hand and visualize it slicing through your ward. As you walk say:

“I dissolve this ward.
You have my thanks for your protection in the past.
I release you with my blessing.”

A little word of warning about wards and protection barriers. If you are keeping something out you are also keeping something in. It is in your best interest to dissolve your barriers once in a while to let out any trapped energy.

The Witches Spell for November 19th: The Bottle Spell

Freya
The Witches Spell for November 19th: The Bottle Spell

(Variation of the Traditional Witch’s Bottle)

This spell can be used to neutralize the power of those who intend to hurt your reputation, in any way pose a threat to your security, or who want to do you physical harm.

Items You Will Need:
–black thread black ink or black ballpoint pin parchment paper
–1 bottle with a cork or mortar and pestle 1 white candle
–4 tablespoons orris-root (or oak moss) 4 tablespoons sea salt
–4 tablespoons black powdered iron (available at pottery shops where ironstone is made)
–4 tablespoons frankincense or myrrh

Mix the sea salt, orris-root powder, and iron in a bowl. Then cut a piece of parchment to fit inside your bottle and write on it in black ink:

“I neutralize the power of [name of your adversary] to do me any harm.
I ask that this be correct and for the good of all. So mote it be.”

Roll up the parchment, tie it with black thread to bind it, and place it in the bottle. Fill the bottle with the dry ingredients. Then take the white candle and, while turning the bottle counter clockwise, drip wax over the cork to seal it.

Last, secretly bury the bottle in a place where it will not be disturbed and no animal or person will dig it up. It should never be opened or the power of the spell is lost.

The Witches Magick for Monday, July 27 – Protection from Negative Energies

The Witches Magick for Monday, July 27 – Protection from Negative Energies

You will need:
1 black candle
Caraway
Small mirror

 

Cast a circle and light the candle. Sprinkle the caraway on the candle’s flame (be careful!) and on the mirror. Close your eyes and imagine yourself surrounded by a magic shield… imagine the negative energies bouncing off your shield and returning to where they came from.
Open your eyes and stand facing North. Hold the mirror out in front of you, the reflective side pointing outward. Say these words:

 

“Mirror of Protection,
Stop the flow of negative energy in my direction!
May the energy be sent back to its source,
Let it harm none along its course!”

 

Now turn East and repeat the words for Air.

Repeat for Fire and Water. Close the Circle.
