One Simple Protection for Your Home and Property

This is to be done after you have blessed your home so you know all negative energy and/or beings are out of it.

The easiest way to make sure your home is protected from anything negative or evil is to put a mixture of salt, bay leaves or basil, and garlic in the four cardinal points (North, East, South, and West) of your home. If you want to use a compass to make sure you have the exact location of the direction that’s fine but as long as you know it is the basic area of the direction that is fine too. Personally, I used a compass the first time and then put a little dot with a Sharpie on the baseboard just above the floor so I do not need the compass again until the dots wear away.

Than using regular table salt walk clockwise around your home starting with the door that people use to enter or exit the house more often. Call upon Hekate to keep the people in the home safe from all harm and to walk with you as you sprinkle a thin layer in a circle completely surrounding your home overlap the place you start at to make sure the circle is complete. Make sure you put a little extra salt by every entrance into your home including window sills. Is there is any type of fence or other obstruction be sure to overlap the salt when moving around it so there is no break in the warding.

Last come to protecting the land that surrounds your home to do this I again use table salt and walk clockwise around the edge of my property line asking Hekate to keep your family safe when they are in the yard for whatever reason. Make sure the salt overlaps where you began at. I usually start in the Northeast corner of our yard. If you have a fence in the way of walking from front to back – sprinkle the salt on top of the fence than walk around to your backyard and start by sprinkling a little more salt on top of the fence so there is no break in the ward, do this everytime you need to stop and start the outside lines.

Remember when you are done with the protection wards to thank Hekate for her help.

The Book of Ballymote (by Dbachmann)

One of the stranger ancient scripts one might come across, Ogham is also known as the ‘Celtic Tree Alphabet’. Estimated to have been used from the fourth to the tenth century CE, it is believed to have been possibly named after the Irish god Ogma but this is debated widely. Ogham actually refers to the characters themselves, the script as a whole is more appropriately named Beith-luis-nin after the order of alphabet letters BLFSN.

DESCRIPTION

The script originally contained twenty letters grouped into four groups of five. Five more letters were later added creating a fifth group. Each of these groups was named after its first letter. There are some four to five hundred surviving ogham inscriptions throughout Britain and Ireland with the largest number appearing in Pembrokeshire. The rest of the inscriptions were located around south-eastern Ireland, Scotland, Orkney, the Isle of Man and around the border of Devon and Cornwall. Ogham was used to write in Archaic Irish, Old Welsh and Latin mostly on wood and stone and is based on a high medieval Briatharogam tradition of ascribing the name of trees to individual characters. The inscriptions containing Ogham are almost exclusively made up of personal names and marks of land ownership.

Fairy Magic

If you have entered this enchanted world, I may assume that you are somehow called to the secret realms of Fairy Magic. Something of their mystical song has touched your ears, or your heart, or a hidden place of sub-conscious imaginings. And perhaps you have been led to believe (by parents, or teachers in school) that the world of Fairy is nothing more than imaginings – the whimsical flight of folly that children’s minds may fall prey to. But you are older now, and surely wiser. And here you sit, looking out into the veil of ether for that which your heart still longs for: the realm in which all your imaginings may at last be brought to light! This sacred place of Self is where we shall begin…the part of you that still believes! To enter the world of Fairy magic, you must believe that there is more to this universe than what can be seen by human eyes. You must believe in the hidden, the shadowed, and the obscure. You must begin to search with your inner eyes for that which lies beyond the mists, for it is there that you will find the first thresholds of Fey! These thresholds will open up into vast worlds, as diverse and complex as our own. The Realm of Fairy magic is not a place of fluttering tiny beings that delight only in tickling our upturned human noses. It is an entire dimension – richly inhabited by many races, species and beings.

Success Witch Spell

To bring the energy of success into your life, try out this beginner magic witch spell.

 

What you will need for this spell are a yellow votive candle, a candle holder or plate, a knife or something to carve with, and a lighter or matches. This spell is best to do during a full, new, or waxing moon, but not a waning moon.

 

Candle magic is great because there are many ways to personalize the spells as you can get all different kinds of candles with different colors, tones, shapes, and sizes. You can also get candles with different symbols or shapes on them, or you can carve these in yourself.

 

1. Cast your circle.

 

2. Take your candle and carve a symbol of success into the side. The symbol is up to you and can be whatever you feel like represents success to you. You can use a rune, a money sign, or some other symbol relating to success, as long as it has meaning to you.

 

3. Ignite your candle, and focus on the flame.

 

4. Visualize yourself successful. Feel how you would feel as if you were already successful. Visualize as much detail as you can using all of your senses. Feel the happiness and joy you have from being successful. Make yourself believe that you are currently successful and you have achieved the level of success that you want.

 

5. Focus on the flame, watching it as you are visualizing this feeling of success.

 

6. When you are ready, dismantle your circle, but leave the candle burning. Let the candle burn until it goes out on its own. Make sure you don’t leave the candle alone though and accidentally cause a fire.

 

7. When the wax has cooled off after the flame goes out, take the wax and put it somewhere safe, in a bag or another container.

 

8. As often as you can, tell the universe and yourself that “I am successful. I am worthy. I am powerful.”

How to Plan a Ritual

By Patti Wigington
Updated March 07, 2017
There are dozens of rituals available here at About Paganism & Wicca, and thousands more available across the vast expanse of the Internet. There are hundreds to be found in books on the subject of Wicca, NeoWicca, Paganism, and witchcraft in general. These rituals make a great template — and certainly, if you’ve never held a ritual on your own, it’s nice to have one already written for you. For many people, an important aspect of the spiritual growth process lies in planning one’s own ritual.

You may find that in planning your own rituals, it helps to follow the same format each time. After all, part of ritual is the concept of repetition. That doesn’t mean you have to speak the same words each time, but if you follow the same general order of things, it will help you become more in tune with the ritual process. Something else to keep in mind is that ritual should be celebratory. That means that it should celebrate something — a Sabbat holiday, a phase of the moon, the change of the seasons, a phase in one’s life. Know what you’re celebrating, and then you’ll know what your focus should be for the rite.

There once was a Willow, and he was very old,

And all his leaves fell off from him, and left him in the cold;

But ere the rude winter could buffet him with snow,

There grew upon his hoary head a crop of mistletoe.

All wrinkled and furrowed was this old Willow’s skin,

His taper finger trembled, and his arms were very thin;

Two round eyes and hollow, that stared but did not see;

And sprawling feet that never walked, had this most ancient tree.

~Julianna Horatia Ewing, “The Willow Man” ”
