Today I did my very first protection spell. I can’t really link the original spell that I drew the inspiration from because I wrote it down in my B.o.S when I found it but then as I was preparing to do it I was inspired to tweak it a little to add extra energies to it. Upon completion I can honestly say I feel like it was successful. It’s hard to explain but I physically just feel more at ease and secure and in my mind when I reflect on the process I keep hearing “I am safe and protected” and can visualize a type of white light barrier surrounding me as if I were in a protective bubble. So I’d like to share it with you all in case anyone needs to use it.
I began with meditation letting myself soak in the protective light and visualizing all negativity and I’ll intent bouncing off of me like a pinball machine.
After casting my circle I took a white votive candle (the original spell called for black, blue or yellow but I didn’t have any of those colors) and cleansed it, my space and myself with smoke from a white sage stick and Palo Santo saying the following:
"I release all energy that no longer serves me. Cleanse this candle, remove it’s past.
Fill this space with joy, love and light.
I honor the cycle of life
And the four directions.
Bring me wisdom and growth.
Regenerate and transform myself and my space.
Bring clarity and cleansing energy
Purify my emotions and guide my transition.
I am grateful for health
Abundance, love and happiness.
Bring me strength and peace."
Then I hollowed out the bottom of the candle (my dollar tree candles luckily had loose wicks on the bottom so I was able to pull the wick completely out using a toothpick to whittle away the hole the wick was in) I then stuffed the candle with protective herbs starting with the powdered ones and using the more chunky ones toward the bottom where my hole was wider.
I used: ashes from the white sage and Palo Santo I burned during cleansing, ground cinnamon, ground ginger (to boost the intention), dried basil, rosemary, oregano, parsley, thyme and sage, and Angelica root. (Make sure to replace the wick after adding powdered herbs and ash so the wick goes in smoothly)
Then I inscribed the candle with a protective sigil I used this one but you could also use one of your own choice or design
And then dressed my candle with frankincense oil and speed it up powder a hoodoo magic blend that speeds up the effects of a spell (I will attach the recipe at the end of this post). I would’ve preferred to have used protection powder but I lacked the motivation to make any.
I wrote out my intentions on a petition including the same sigil I inscribed on the candle. The words you use on the petition shouldn’t make much of a difference so long as your intentions are clear precise and to the point. I placed my petition underneath my candle and lit it. Focusing on the flame and visualizing it burning away all the things I need to be protected from as it burned letting my candle burn all the way down extinguishing itself and burning the protective herbs in the process.
Once the candle smoke after it went out cleared I removed the wax (which I’m unsure what/if they mean anything but it didn’t drop out and spread like it did until the very end of the candle) from the petition and burned it releasing my intentions to the universe. Lastly I expressed thanks and released the quarters. You could say something like “thank you for your protective blessings. Leave if you must, stay if you will but know you are always welcome.”
Speed it up powder
Cacao (I used unsweetened cocoa powder)
(I used as many of the ground powdered items as possible because I had them on hand from the grocery store and as it was going to be a powder anyway it made more sense to just ground the lemongrass into the others using my mortar and pestle)
*Mix equal parts of each ingredient
*Stir clockwise while praying the following over it 9 times
"Make my prayers heard quickly
Make my answers come fast
Bring my requests to me with speed!"
This powder can be used to give a previously done spell a burst of speed by dressing a red candle with any appropriate intent oil and rolling in the powder. Or dressing the candle used for a new spell with it to bring it to fruition faster.
I found this recipe courtesy of
pintrest and I used it on a money spell I had done that wasn’t showing signs of success and within a couple of days it was successful.
If you try this this is be glad to hear your experiences with it since I tweaked this spell essentially making it my own and I hope that it helps any who may need it.
Light, love and blessed be
