If you feel that negativity is surrounding you, or a person or spirit has bad intentions towards you, there are many protection spells that you can perform easily in the privacy of your home. If you are a follower of a specific path – Wiccan, Santeria, Druid or Pagan – there are specific spells to protect you, your loved ones and your home from anyone or anything that is threatening harm. Even if you do not follow a recognized spiritual path, many highly effective protection spells are pretty general in nature, crossing lines of metaphysical beliefs and religions.
The Bottle Protection Spell
This message-in-a-bottle spell is both traditional witchcraft and Wiccan, and is used to protect you from anyone who intends to harm you physically or emotionally, wants to smear your reputation or poses a threat to any aspect of your security.
- Mortar and pestle
- 1 bottle with a cork or lid
- Sheepskin parchment paper
- 4 tablespoons each or frankincense or myrrh, iron filings, sea salt and oak moss or orris root powder
- 1 white candle
- Black thread
- Black ink (you can also use a black ballpoint pen)
Grind the first four ingredients using a mortar and a pestle, then set aside. Cut a piece of sheepskin parchment to fit inside the bottle and use the black ink to write, “I neutralize the power of (name of person who intends you harm) to do me any harm. I ask that this be correct and for the good of all. So mote it be!”
Roll sheepskin parchment up, tie it with black thread and place it in the bottle. Fill the bottle with the mixed dry ingredients then close with cap or cork. Light the white candle and turn the bottle counterclockwise while dripping white wax on the top until it is sealed.
Bury the bottle in a place where it will not be disturbed or dug up.
Wolf Protection Spell
As you might guess, this powerful Wiccan spell summons the spirit of the ferocious wolf and calls on it for protection against evil forces or people.
- Artistic rendering of a wolf or wolves – can be a photograph or a painting
- 2 green candles
- 1 white candle
- Protection Oil
- Holy Water
- A lunar drink such as ale or wine (does not have to be alcoholic)
- Cakes (crackers or cookies will do)
Arrange these to your satisfaction under a full moon and chant, “Candles three, green and white, bring protection here tonight. The moon is full, the sky is clear, misfortune and evil disappear. The mighty wolf will ever reign and bring protection from harm and bane. Come hither! Come Hither!”
Pagan and Wiccan Cleansing and Protecting Spell
Pagans believed/believe in the power of protective magic. This spell is referenced and used in several methodologies, and while it probably originated with the pagans, it is now used mostly for banishing all evil spirits from your home. This spell is more easily performed when you have a few trusted people there to help you.
