So I did a variety of things for this Challengebut given that I was doing protection spell work I decided to start with a cleansing bath and then smudged my home with white sage and yerba.
I then got one of the arms from Simon (my other aloe plant) since he’s bigger than Alvin and I hung a piece over the front door, back door and one over my bedroom door alongside the bundle of 3 witch burrs that I keep there to ward negativity though I grow aloe plants in my home because according to the spells8 Lesson on aloe growing it in the home protects the people that live there from accidents and because I’m legally blind in one eye I need all the help I can get.
But this seems too simple so I then decided to make a faerie protection spell jar to protect me from the trickery of the less friendly fae.
For this spell I used a couple of spells and tweaked them slightly so as to make them one spell suited more to my own. One of them I found Here and the other was something I saved on Pinterest but this is how I did it
A mason jar or other sealable container
Some type of cleansing incense
Sea salt (black salt would also work great I believe)
St John’s wort/vervain (I unfortunately didn’t have either of these so I subbed verbena instead)
Lemon zest (I used dried lemon peel)
Cascarilla (eggshell powder)
Bay leaves (with protection sigils drawn on them with sharpie)
you don’t have to use all of these ingredients depending on how big your jar is you can pick just a few but I suggest at least 2 types of stones and 3 herbs minimum
I cleansed my jar with smoke from a sage citrus incense stick and then added my salt first for a solid protective foundation and then my stones and then herbs. I did this while burning a black candle inscribed with my protection sigil from the bay leaves and sealed the jar with the black wax
But as I was finishing up I thought about the fact that we’ve had a handyman here at the house fixing things for the last week and how his energy has been draining me and somehow getting past my protective shield I put up when I have to be around people I’m not used to because I’m still learning to harness and control my empathic gifts. So I decided i would make a small empath protection amulet to carry in my pocket as an extra layer Of protection.
For this I used
Sea salt (I also mixed in some pink Himalayan salt and blue healing salt but I had also thought about adding black salt to so any type of salt can be used or mixed to your needs it’s just to add extra protection to your jar)
And then I placed a sigil paper in the jar before sealing it with a purple and a white candle which were burning as I repeated “I am protected from the negative energy of others. I do not take on the emotions of others as my own. No one can pop my bubble unless I allow it.” And then let the candles burn out beside the jar
