In many magical traditions, Protection spells can be done to ensure the protection of home, property, and people. In fact, protection magic is one of the oldest and most popular purposes for magical spellwork. The use of protection spells has been documented back to the times of the ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians, and is found in magical belief systems from all over the world.
1. The God Janus Protection Spell
In the process of casting this spell, you will have to request some assistance from Janus, the two-faced Roman god of all beginnings.
Half a cup of coffee;
A piece of butter;
The names of the people who obstruct you written on piece of paper;
A coffee filter;
A clean bowl.
How it’s done
Put a filter in a bowl, and on this filter, there should be indicated the magic symbol, rune, or the name of the god or goddess you have chosen. The two-faced god Janus is particularly suitable for this magical activity
Add butter and heat it along with a filter.
Put a piece of paper with names (or just one) on the top of a filter.
Pour in a warm coffee on the mixture.
Ask Janus for help to remove these individuals from your life.
Once the spell is completed, throw away the mixture far away from home.
This is a strong protection spell from enemies and it will protect you from negative energy cast towards you, your life, and your goals.
Repeat this spell one week after casting for the best results.
2. The Touch and Burn Spell
This is a classic White Magic spell that serves to protect your belongings.
If you want to protect a certain area of your life you can use an item linked to it to make it happen. For example: if you want to protect your finances you can cast a spell on your wallet, if you want to protect a project, cast the spell on a folder with all your documents about it, if you want to protect someone you love you can cast the spell on one of his/her belongings or if you want to protect the relationship you have with someone you cast a spell on an item strictly related to you and this other person.
This is not an easy spell but it’s still very powerful. If this is your first time casting a similar kind of spell, try something easier and more beginner-friendly at first and then give this more advanced one a try.
A pin or a nail
A white candle
The object you want to protect (a wallet for example).
How it’s done
Heat the tip of the pin or nail, then engrave your name in a candle, then light it.
When flame calms down, close your eyes and visualize the light of a candle in the darkness of your mind.
If you can’t, try to “hear it.”
Continue to practice until you feel that you have mastered it.
In the end, put your hands on the object you want to protect, and say these words:“If you touch it you will burn!”
Keep repeating these words while touching the object.
See the heat and light from the candle that penetrates the object, making it too hot for anyone who wants to touch it without your permission.
Visualize the pentacle symbol above the object.
Finally, let the candle burn out.
To reinforce the spell:
Cast it on Sunday, at the time of the sun.
Cast it on the full moon.
Repeat everything once a month.
Add a personal security seal on the object.
3. Traveler’s Luck Powder
Intent: To keep one safe and free from mishaps on long trips. Ingredients:
Irish Moss (aka Carrageen)
White Oak Bark
Mortar & Pestle
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not use the Black Cohosh if you are or think you might be pregnant. If need be, you can substitute Basil.
How it’s done:
Grind each ingredient separately for several minutes to produce a fine powder. Sieve the material through the mesh strainer into the collection dish; this removes the larger ungrindable pieces and gives you cleaner powdered herb. (Putting a funnel under the strainer helps reduce lost material.) Retain the leftover large pieces that don’t make it through the strainer. You can use this for loose incense or charm bags later. (For the Nutmeg, supermarket spice works just fine.) Combine the component powders in the collection dish, mix well, and bottle immediately. Fold a few pinches in a paper packet containing your travel details. Tuck this into your luggage or the glove compartment of your car. For more travel general protection, you can sprinkle a few pinches in the foot-wells of your car, or just keep a few blank paper packets around if you frequently travel on short notice.
4. Travel Protection Bottle Charm:
Vessel of water
A small vessel of water
A small container candle
A small besom or feather
A flat grounded stone
A small amount of white taper
How it’s done
In your working space, place a vessel of water, a small container candle, a small besom or feather, and a flat, grounded stone (I used petrified wood). Have a small white taper in reserve nearby. Light the container candle.
Fill small bottle with Traveler's Luck Powder. Chant while filling:
Water, fire, sky, and ground
May they keep you safe and sound
Cork the bottle and light the reserved candle. Continue chanting while dripping wax from the white taper candle over the cork until the bottle is sealed. Chip away excess wax until there’s just the clean cap.
Brush the bottle with the feather or besom. Recite:
With this broom (or feather), I sweep misfortune away….
Gather the wax scrapings and drop them into the container candle, saying:
…And cast it into the fire.
Take a fingertip of water from the vessel and rub the bottle clean. Recite:
With this water, I wash away away all danger.
Place the bottle on the stone. Recite:
With this stone, I bring you safely home once more.
Leave the bottle on the stone while you make a knotted string basket for it to sit in (or have one ready). Tie the bottle in securely, leaving a tail for hanging. Anoint with scented oil if desired and present to the person you wish to protect.
5. St. Brigid’s House Protection Spell
If you feel some negative energy is around your place, maybe you feel someone you know is sending your home negative vibes and you need protection, this is a fantastic spell to bless and protect your home from any harm.
How it’s done
Choose the divinity that best represents your sense of the Divine.For this spell, I usually work with Brigid, a Celtic goddess of water and fire, whose healing energies will help purify a home that was violated by violence, heated discussions or other negative manifestations.If you are not comfortable with this kind of invocation, choose to refer to some god/goddess you feel a connection with and that inspires protection and safety. St. Brigid’s day is one of the four most important festivals of the Celtic tradition, and we celebrate it on February 1st (Candelora). The totem of this goddess is a cow, so diary offerings (such as milk) are welcome.Visualize
the four elements throughout the house, imagining that negativity is banned from every room.
Once finished, stand in the middle of the room and say this invocation:
“I’m the wind on the sea. They are an ocean wave. I am the roar of the sea. I am a powerful ox. I’m the hawk on the cliff. I am a drop of dew in the sun. I am the force of art. I am a spear with loot engaged in battle I cleaned the stony place on the mountain. From the cellar to the attic, from the window to the door, from the roof to the garden, I fill this house protective energy of (Name of the chosen deity) and I ask that the people here reside the blessings are dispensed. So be it!”
Renew this ritual every six months.
To reinforce the spell you need to:
Act with the full moon.
Cast it on a Monday (family matters) or Sunday (business matters).
Cast it when the moon is in Cancer or Virgo.
Act in the time of the moon.
Repeat every year, possibly on February 1st and New Year.
This ancient Celtic poem magically affirms your sovereignty over the house you live in. You can also use it as a protection spell for someone else.
You can do to your loved one’s house and cast this spell for them if someone close to you feels some protection is needed. Just focus on that home and feel like you are a vessel from protection to get to your loved ones and their place.
