Protective Measures

Protective Measures

Against the Evil Eye:
Hang Dill weed over all windows and doorways in the home
Wear a blue eye bead for constant personal protection. Hang one from the rear-view mirror of your car, as well.
Keep a cimaruta (an Italian Talisman sporting multiple symbols) on your altar to stave off interference in your magical work.
Against Nightmares:
Keep a silver bell in your bedroom and ring it to drive off nightmare-causing evil spirits each night before you to go bed.
A small dish of coffee beans kept by the bed staves off nightmares.
Rosemary plants placed near the bed shield against unpleasant dreams.
For Safe Automobile Travel:
Keep a whole Ash leaf in the glove box for magical protection
Keep a Tiger’s Eye in the vehicle to protect against accidents
Hang a mojo bag filed with wormwood and plantain from the rearview mirror to prevent negative spirits from taking on the position of co-pilot.
Against Malevolence in the Home:
Once a month, use a sprig of rosemary to asperge all thresholds with a mixture of 1 Tablespoon of saltpeter to a gallon of water. Pay special attention to the front and back doors.
Place aloe vera plants above the doorway to repel malevolent spirits and nasty magic. Use red geraniums outdoors – if your property allows it, plant them to form a boundary- to keep bewitchments at bay.
Place Fu dog statues – the Asian dogs that look as if they’re part lion – on either side of the front door as “Security guards.” It’s said that using a matched pair of male and female is most effective. (The male is usually portrayed playing with a ball.) Raise them off the ground as much as possible, so they can get a clear view of anything coming their way.
As Papa Legba holds the keys to the gates between the worlds and decides who enters and who doesn’t, place his statue behind the front door. (A statue of St. Peter may be substituted, as he was designated by the enslaved as Papa Legba’s Christian counterpart when it was necessary to hide their religious activities.) Offer him Rum every Monday – Barbancourt is a good choice IF you can find it – and occasionally, supplement with good cigars, cigarettes, and candy.
Against Pet Harm:
As pets take the brunt of any malicious activity aimed towards us, its’ important to safeguard them as well. For dogs, a disc depicting Diana and charged with protection works well when added to the collar. For Cats, obtain a disc depicting Bast. If neither is available to you, a St. Francis of Assisi medal will work well for either.

Casting Circle For Protection

Casting Circle For Protection

Marking out your circle First, you want to
decide where to create your circle. Whether you have an altar or just a peaceful corner of your home – or maybe outside in nature – pick a place where you are undisturbed so that you can focus and work in peace. It’s not necessary to mark out your circle, but some like to do it for ritual purposes, or for protection. You can mark the boundaries of the circle with a long piece of cord, or put candles or rocks along the edges. Some Witches like to use crystals corresponding to each of the cardinal points (each point represents one of the four elements). Some people use orgonite on the edges of their circles as they feel it adds extra protection. It’s completely up to you how you would like to mark out or decorate your circle! The casting The next step is to conjure the pure energy that will surround and protect you. There are as many ways to do this as there are practitioners, so you will find a way that is suitable to you and your practices. How to cast a basic circle of protection Here is an example of a basic circle casting which can be performed quickly and easily without the use of tools. Stand in the middle of your circle. Relax and breathe deeply. Imagine that your crown (the top of your head) opens up like a funnel to receive divine, white light. Your crown is always connected to the divine and to your Higher Self, and you can open up and amplify this channel at your will. Open your arms, palms facing out. With each in-breath, visualise yourself pulling down pure, divine light through your crown, and as you breathe out you channel this light out through your palms to create a protective shield around you. As you fill the space around you with this high-vibration energy you may feel a tingle or buzz, you may get goose bumps, or you’ll feel light and uplifted. Now hold one arm outstretched (the one you write with) and point to the edge of the circle. Spin around clockwise three times, mentally marking out your circle with the divine light. Then raise your arms above your head and say: “I ask that the God and Goddess bless this circle So that I may be free and protected within this space So mote it be” You are now ready to cast your spell or perform your ritual. To close your circle, hold out your arm and spin around anti-clockwise three times and feel the protective light dispersing. Thank the Spirits for their presence and declare the circle closed. How to cast an advanced circle of protection This is an example of a more advanced circle ritual, for which you will need a compass, four candles, and if you have an athame or wand you can use that to direct the energy. You can use white candles, or coloured candles for each point: North – Green East – Yellow South – Red West – Blue Use the compass and place the candles at each of the cardinal points. Light the North candle and say: “Guardians of the North, Element of Earth I call upon thee to be present during this ritual Please join me now and bless this circle” Light the East candle and say: “Guardians of the East, Element of Air I call upon thee to be present during this ritual Please join me now and bless this circle” Light the South candle and say: “Guardians of the South, Element of Fire I call upon thee to be present during this ritual Please join me now and bless this circle” Light the West candle and say: “Guardians of the West, Element of Water I call upon thee to be present during this ritual Please join me now and bless this circle” Now take your wand or athame and point it to the edge of the circle. Spin around clockwise three times, and visualise a bright white light entering you through your crown and direct it out through your arm, down through your tool and out to form the edge of your circle. Then stand in the middle, and feel this white, divine light filling the circle and immersing your entire being. Say: “God and Goddess, Guardian Angels, and Spiritual Guides Please be present with me during this ritual Bless this circle and keep me protected No unwanted entities are welcome here Only pure, divine beings are invited into this space The circle is cast So mote it be” You are now ready to cast your spell or perform your ritual. To close your circle, take your wand or athame and spin around anti-clockwise three times and feel the protective light dispersing. Thank the Spirits and Elements for their presence and declare the circle closed

Bind a Black Box

Bind a Black Box

Create a magickal barrier around you to banish all the negative, and bring some protection into your personal life.

A small black box
Black or dark purple tissue paper
A small personal token that fits in the box
Sea salt
Length of coarse twine
Shard of broken glass
The box should be black, but it’s better if you can paint it yourself though using one that is black to begin with is fine too. Small cardboard jewellery boxes work very well for this spell.

Sprinkle some salt in the bottom of the box, then fill it in with some tissue paper. You can use cloth if you don’t have tissue. It has to be black or dark though. Set your token in the centre and say the words of the spell.

Inside this box,
I place my locks
To banish all my ill.

Protect my life,
Keep out strife,
By the power of my will.

Put the lid on the box, and set the piece of glass on the lid. Wrap the whole thing several times with twine, enough to hold the shard in place. Tie with a solid knot. Repeat the words again.

Set the box near the door of your home, glass piece down. After 7 days, find a more permanent home for it, someplace dark and undisturbed

Reflect Away Harm

Reflect Away Harm

Most reverse spells use mirrors to send the energy of the curse back to the person who sent it to you in the first place. You just need:

• 2 small mirrors, ideally on stands
• 1 black candle
• Sandalwood incense

Light the incense and let the smoke build up a bit around your altar area. Carve a deep X into the candle. You now have to set up your two mirrors so they face each other, and place the candle between them. It should look like repeating candles reflected deep within the mirror.

Light the candle, and let your eyes focus back and forth between the mirrors while you concentrate on the negative magick you are trying to reverse. Repeat the words:

The magick upon me
Be trapped this night
Between these mirrors
Never see light

Repeat the chant over and over, and visualize the curse becoming entangled in the reflections and sent back to the sender. Let the candle burn down on its own, but leave the mirrors facing each other for 1 month.

The Witch’s Bottle- Protection Against Enemies

The Witch’s Bottle
Protection Against Enemies
It is possible for the nicest person the have enemies. Some people may be jealous of you; misunderstand you; just dislike the way you do your hair! Many people have said, “I don’t need protection. I don’t have any enemies.” But there are the above-type “enemies” that you wouldn’t even know about. They may well be as sweet as pie to you, to your face, but be bitterly jealous, or whatever it may be, behind your back. How do you protect yourself against their negativity? How to you protect yourself against a warped individual who decides to work magick against you? You don’t want to hurt them, but you certainly want to protect yourself.

The best way to deal with this is a “Witch’s Bottle”. This is an ancient defense, known throughout folklore. It is made on an individual basis. The idea is to protect yourself and at the same time, send back whatever is being sent at you. You should never be the originator of harm, nor seek revenge, but you can protect yourself.

To make a Witch’s Bottle, take a regular jar such as a 6 oz instant-coffee jar. Half fill it with sharp objects such as broken glass, old razor blades, rusty nails and screws, pins, needles, etc. When the jar is half-filled with these objects, urinate in it to fill it. If a woman is preparing her bottle, she might also want to get some menstrual blood into it. Now put the top on the jar and seal it with tape. It should then be buried in the ground, at least twelve inches deep, in an isolated spot where it can remain undisturbed. If you live in a city, then it will be worth a trip out of town to find some remote spot to bury it.

So long as the bottle remains buried and unbroken, it will protect you from any evil directed against you. This applies whether the evil is directed by an individual or a group of people. Not only will it protect you, but it will reflect back that evil on the sender(s). So the more he/she tries to harm you, the more he/she will be harmed her/himself.

Such a bottle should last almost indefinitely, but to be on the safe side, I’d recommend redoing the ritual one a year. With the present rate of housing development you never know when your bottle may be dug up or inadvertently smashed.

Original text from the Ars Goetia:

“The Fourteenth Spirit is called Leraje (or Leraie). He is a Marquis Great in Power, showing himself in the likeness of an Archer clad in Green, and carrying a Bow and Quiver. He causeth all great Battles and Contests; and maketh wounds to putrefy that are made with Arrows by Archers. This belongeth unto Sagittary. He governeth 30 Legions of Spirits, and this is his Seal, etc.”

 

From Tikaboo

“Leraje (or Leraie) is a Marquis Great in Power, showing himself in the likeness of an Archer clad in Green, and carrying a Bow and Quiver. He causeth all great Battles and Contests; and maketh wounds to putrefy that are made with Arrows by Archers. This belongeth unto Sagittary. He governeth 30 Legions of Spirits.”

 

From the Luciferian Goetia by Michael Ford

“He appears as a green clad archer, while sometimes in some older military uniform which appears to be of the civil war area. In an initiatory sense, Lerajae is very useful in directing ones desired goals and making them reality. For instance, one would summon Lerajae when one wants to obtain a specific goal i.e. job, trip, item, etc. The archer as he is known is useful in the sense of ‘hitting the mark’.”

 

From the Daemonolatry Goetia by S. Connolly

“Aside from general expectation magicks, you can seek the wisdom of Leraje during conflicts in order to resolve them. Leraje also gives good counsel to those seeking help on relationships with difficult people.”

Prayers for Imbolc

Brighid’s Fire Meal Blessing
The goddess Brighid is well known as a keeper of the hearth fires in the home. As such, she is often associated with matters of domesticity, including cooking and kitchen magic. If you’re prepped a meal and you’re getting ready to dig in, take a moment to bless your food in Brighid’s name.
Brighid is the lady of flame,
the fire that cooks our food!
Hail to her and to the hearth,
and may our meal be good!

Thanks to Brighid Meal Blessing
In some modern Pagan traditions, it is customary to offer a blessing before a meal, particularly if it’s being held in a ritual context. At Imbolc, it’s a season to honour Brighid, the goddess of hearth, home and domesticity. Celebrate her role as a goddess of the home fires, and offer this simple blessing of gratitude before your Imbolc feast.

This is the season of Brighid,
She who protects our hearth and home.
We honour her and thank her,
for keeping us warm as we eat this meal.
Great Lady, bless us and this food,
and protect us in your name.

End of Winter Meal Blessing
Although Imbolc isn’t truly the end of winter–and depending on where you live, you might be right smack in the middle of the worst weather of the season–in many traditions, it is a time to look forward towards the spring. It’s a good time to honour the idea that the days are starting to grow a little bit longer and that soon, the harsh cold winter will be coming to an end. Feel free to hold off on this prayer until it’s a little more seasonally appropriate for your area.

The winter is coming to an end
The stores of food are dwindling,
And yet we eat, and stay warm
In the chilled winter months.
We are grateful for our good fortune,
And for the food before us.

Prayer to Brigantia, Keeper of the Forge
The goddess Brighid was known by many names. In parts of northern Britain, she was called Brigantia, and was seen as a keeper of the forge. In this aspect, she is associated with smith craft and cauldrons. She was connected to the Roman goddess Victoria, a deity who was the personification of victory in battle, as well as loyalty. In some legends she is invoked as Minerva, the warrior goddess. Although as Brigantia she is not nearly as famous as her Brighid aspect, she is seen as the goddess who bestowed the title of Brigantes upon a pan-Celtic tribe in England’s border region.

Hail, Brigantia! Keeper of the forge,
she who shapes the world itself with fire,
she who ignites the spark of passion in the poets,
she who leads the clans with a warrior’s cry,
she who is the bride of the islands,
and who leads the fight of freedom.
Hail, Brigantia! Defender of kin and hearth,
she who inspires the bards to sing,
she who drives the smith to raise his hammer,
she who is a fire sweeping across the land.

Prayer to Brighid, Keeper of the Flame
Among her many other aspects, Brighid is the keeper of the flame, and this simple prayer honours her in that role.

Mighty Brighid, keeper of the flame,
blazing in the darkness of winter.
O goddess, we honour you, bringer of light,
healer, exalted one.
Bless us now, hearth mother,
that we may be as fruitful as the soil itself,
and our lives abundant and fertile.

Prayer to Brighid, Bride of Earth
In many modern Pagan traditions, the Imbolc sabbat is a time to celebrate Brighid, the Celtic hearth goddess. Among her many other aspects, she is known as the Bride of Earth, and is the patroness of domesticity and home. This simple prayer honours her in that role.

Bride of the earth,
sister of the faeries,
daughter of the Tuatha de Danaan,
keeper of the eternal flame.
In autumn, the nights began to lengthen,
and the days grew shorter,
as the earth went to sleep.
Now, Brighid stokes her fire,
burning flames in the hearth,
bringing light back to us once more.
Winter is brief, but life is forever.
Brighid makes it so.

Smooring the Fire—A Prayer to Brighid
Alexander Carmichael was a folklorist and author who spent nearly five decades travelling around the highlands of Scotland collecting stories, prayers and songs. His most noteworthy work, the Carmina Gadelica, is an interesting blend of early Pagan tradition mixed with the influences of Christianity. Smooring the Fire is from Carmichael’s Carmina Gadelica, published 1900, and is a Gaelic hymn to Brighid, honouring the tradition of smooring, or dampening, the hearth fire at night, and particularly on the night before Imbolc.
