Witches and Pagans can be many things, but to me our most important things to be is first a protector of Mother Earth and then to teach our descendants to be the same.
You can use this two ways, one as a prayer or two as a spell to empower a black stone. I say it in my prayers every morning and also carry a stone with me anytime I know I will be in a situation that maybe stressful and/or people I will be encountering might have negative feelings or thoughts about me and/or speak nastily to or about me. In other words I carry it almost daily as I never know who or what I might encounter outside my home.
For a spell you will need:
Pocket size Black Stone (Black will draw negativity to itself before it can reach you. Cleanse the stone at least once a week using same spell you use to cleanse it the first time.)
To perform the spell:
First cleanse stone (see – How to Cleanse Objects Using the Elements)
Either in a sacred space or circle say the spell over the stone three times while either holding it in your power hand or touching it with your wand. At the end of the thrid time seal the spell with the words “So mote it be” or whatever words you use to seal your spells.
(For prayer start with the words “Today I ask for help with…”) (For spell start with the words “I empower this stone stone with…”)
Patience, Understanding and Tolerance for better;
Acceptance of people. places. situations, attitudes, how people speak to and about me;
that I might live in better Harmony within myself, home, family, work and world.
