As promised, last night we had a wonderful discussion about Protection live on WCJV radio. The section below is a recap of how to protect yourself using Candles, Stones & Sage. We will be posting this weekend about the popular “Witches Bottle” used as a form of protection as well.
Witchcraft has been in existence for quite a long time. This religion/practice existed in Old England and through Europe; to worship nature and anything that is created is sacred. The followers of this religion/practice are called witches.
Witches beliefs consist of spells. Any spells that intends to harm, or control or dominate other people are very much forbidden. Spells consists of words, phrases, formula, rituals or any combination of these. There are many different spells created for different purposes. Witches all around the world are formulating rituals or spells to help them with their everyday lives, and they are generous enough to share it with other spell casters. One of the most popular spells created are called Protection Spells.
Protection spells are used to protect one person, either the caster or other people, or a home from the negative influences or karma of other people. These kinds of spells can be effective if one puts enough faith and intent. As you do any ritual, stick to the directions on how to do it, a small mistake can have your spell go the opposite direction and have a negative result. There are many spells and rituals that can be seen online or on any witchcraft book. But as always tailor the words to be your own.
Many people use candles while casting spells. The colors of the candles depends on your intention in doing the spell, the usual color of the color of the candle that is being used for Protection Spells is black. It is believed that black candles are effective in reversing any negative thoughts and energy; it also absorbs any chaos and conceals confusions around you. This is the reason why black candles are preferred in performing the spell. Salt is another variable in these type of spells, salt has the ability to repel and purify any negative energy. The combination of these two materials in doing these spell is important so that casting the spell of protection will be effective. In doing a spell full attention and focus is needed so that you can build the connection between you and the person or place to the spell. Your intention for this matter should be pure and positive; this should not be used in any harmful way that can affect your karma.

Another major type of dark negative energy that can be sent to others is through negative thinking, anger, wishing harm to others, jealousy, animosity, seeking revenge, vindictiveness, or other forms of thought that are based in anger, rage and fear. These are called thought forms and they can be lodged in a person’s body or various layers of their auras causing a wide range of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual difficulties.
Smudging with white sage is an ancient custom of North American Indians who have used and continue to use this method for clearing unwanted energies. It’s important to clear yourself each day and to clear your home and car at least once a week as a normal maintenance procedure. Today most people are exposed to many negative energies in their workplaces, in stores, restaurants, and almost anywhere they go. Anyone can pick up negative energies by just walking around.
People who work in close quarters with others, and this includes teachers, nurses, physicians, therapists, factory workers, energy workers, office workers etc., need to smudge and clear daily. Some of the negative energy carried in one person’s aura can easily flip into your own aura, eventually causing illness. Daily smudging is a powerful clearing tool to use on yourself and your office to keep your energy field clear of “accidental” energy transfers. Smudging Supplies can be found on our website at: http://blessedbegarden.com/Incense-and-Incense-Burners/Smuding/
To smudge just do the following. Take a bowl about 4 or 5 inches in diameter and place a few inches of sand to cover the bottom of the bowl and to protect the bowl from heat. Place a few leaves of white sage on the sand and light the ends or edges of the leaves. Once the leaf is flaming well, blow out the flame and leave the leaf to smoke. This smoke is what is called smudging. Pass the smoke over your head and all around you a number of times. If you are smudging your home, close all the windows and doors and pass the bowl with leaves smoking around each room, into corners, up to ceiling corners, and into closets and cupboards. Leave the doors and windows closed for a few hours. This smudging can dissolve or eliminate many negative and dark energies, entities and spirits from your home.
Black (ob·sid·i·an) Obsidian , Black (tour·ma·line )Tourmaline or (py·rite) Pyrite Spray and Essences is great to use. You can make a spray by taking two teaspoons of the Choming Concentrate of either Black Tourmaline, Black Obsidian or Pyrite and mixing it with one cup of water. Then carefully spray your aura, or your home or office with this spray. This works in the same manner as the smudging, by dissolving or eliminating dark energies, spirits, or entities. These sprays are powerful protectors.

Black Obsidian and pyrite are just as powerful as black tourmaline but are more porous and allow good and loving energies to flow both ways, while protecting and keeping all negative energies away. Black Tourmaline tens to keep everything away. Mahogany and Rainbow Obsidian are powerful in eliminating negative energies caused by jealousy. The Black and Mahogany Obsidian, the Black Tourmaline, and the Pyrite, can be very effective in clearing out negative energies lodged in bodies and auras. But the degree of clearing they can affect will depend on the type and strength of energy that has entered a body, aura, home, or office.
These stones are powerful protection to use just by carrying them in your hand or pocket. If you are going to be in environments where there is much tension, conflict, anger, manipulation or control, it’s a good idea to keep one of these stones in your pocket. Remember that if you keep it in your right hand or pocket, you are releasing and helping to release negative and dark energies. If you keep it in your left pocket you are drawing in energy to help you eliminate negative and dark energies. Anything held on the left side draws energy and anything on the right side releases energy. If you carry these stones daily, they need to clear of negative energies they have absorbed. This can be done by placing them under incense smoke. Then you would place them in a window sill or outside under the moonlight overnight so that the stones can be re-energized. This is essential for the stone to continue working effectively. Some people suggest putting stones into salt water for cleansing
One of the most complex but most effective methods used to help clear yourself, your home, friends or pets is through the following meditative Spiritual Clearing of Intent. It is imperative as a first step that you call in special protection for yourself. Please do not try this clearing unless you are accustomed to working with intelligent energies from other dimensions and know how to protect yourself. If you try to clear someone with entities or spirits in their body or aura and do not protect yourself properly, the entities and spirits are almost guaranteed to flip into your body and aura and then you have the problem as well as the other person.
To clear yourself or someone else with intent, seat yourself in a very comfortable chair and close your eyes. Please ensure that you are coming from a place of love for all energies, including the negative psychic energies, when conducting this clearing. Once you are fully relaxed, connect with the intelligent energies of other dimensions and ask for protection from the Universe so that whatever is being cleared cannot find you or go into others. Then establish a cone of white light with another dimension so that the negative energies, entities, spirits that are being cleared can follow this lighted cone up into the Universe/deities/spirits. Then ask the Universe/deities/spirits to remove all negative energies, entities and spirits using the name of the person being cleared and ask the angels of the Universe/deities/spirits to move this darkness up into the cone of light so they cannot harm anyone or anything else on this earth. Hold this thought and cone of light for a few minutes. After a number of minutes thank the Universe/deities/spirits for its help and close down the cone of light. The critical factor with this clearing is the ability to connect with the energies of other dimensions. I estimate that only a few energy workers have the real ability to truly connect with intelligent energies of other dimensions to conduct this Spiritual Clearing of Intent. The Spiritual Clearing of Intent will not eliminate the psychic invaders if other dimensional intelligent energies are not connected with since they do the work. The energy worker is simply the instrument of connection.
The following is a summary list of things you can do to protect yourself from negative attack:
- Clear your aura with white sage or Tibetan incense on a daily basis.
- Regularly spray your home with Black Tourmaline, Black Obsidian or Pyrite Essence Spray
- Keep a loving and caring attitude towards others
- Keep yourself grounded with cords to the center of Earth or stones to keep you grounded. Amber, Hematite and Zincite Essences and gemstones are powerful for grounding.
- Include time for prayer and meditation on a daily basis.
- In your daily spiritual practices, include positive personal affirmations for your overall comfort and safety.
- On a regular basis, ask an Energy Worker to clear all attachments, markings, or negative rays that have become attached to you. Also ask this person to ensure your chakras are operating at optimum efficiency.
- If you are able to connect with energies of other dimensions, clear yourself of all negative energies, entities, spirits, attachments, markings and negative rays using the Spiritual Clearing of Intent.
- When required to spend time with individuals who are in conflict, make a practice of keeping a black obsidian, black tourmaline or pyrite gemstones in your right hand pocket. Be certain to cleanse and re-energize the stones.
- Practice deep breathing exercises when you become fearful and anxious.
- When in doubt, call an Energy Worker to work with you to help you clear negative and dark energies and spells.
Have a blessed day!
