Be Careful: Wiccans Stay Alert to The Thin Veil

On the astral plane, I breathed easily, talking with the God and Goddess. In the midst of my meditation, I knew that standing in the Stone Circle was safe.

Just as I took some steps to leave the Stone Circle, the God moved like a flash and barred my exit.

Then I heard a gut-wrenching fight between Jerry (my protective animal spirit) and some thing—outside the protective Circle.

Apparently, Jerry won. He came back to my side and guided me safely back to the earthly realm.

Soon, I opened my eyes. My meditation was complete.

The next day I talked to a friend, and she told me that “All religions have prophesies foretelling this.”

This what? The Veil between the earth and the astral plane is currently quite thin. Around the time of Samhain, The Veil usually does become thinner. However, at this moment, The Veil appears thinner still.

What can we do?

Put up extra wards and protections around your home and your life.

  1. Employ Witch’s Bottles.

I begin with revamping my witches’ bottles. Learn to make you own Witch’s Bottle here.

  1. Bless Salt or Stones for Protection

You can bless salt or stones (particularly hematite) and pour or place them around doors and windows. Wiccans pour blessed salt across thresholds, doors and windows. Wiccans place blessed stones next to such areas, too.

Here is a prayer to instill protection on your chosen substance (salt or stone):

By Sun and Moon,
by stream and sea
may protection come unto me.
I ask the Lord of Death and the Lady of Reincarnation
to take any negative or rough entity back to where they belong.
May this salt [or stones] protect me and my home.
So Mote It Be.

May these protection elements bless your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Wiccans and Psychic and Spiritual Protection?

A reader asked me: What are some of the quickest, easiest ways for psychic & spiritual protection?

I’ll share three different methods you can use to protect yourself. (There are many possible methods of protection.)

Protection Method #1: Use a Sigil

Sigils are magickal symbols that hold an intention. You create a sigil by using the following simple process. First, write out your desire on a scratch piece of paper; you can use a single word or a phrase.

Examples of Phrases Related to Protection:

· Protect me through the night

· Protect me from energy vampires

To keep this example simple and clear, I’ll just use the word “success.” Cross off all of the repeated letters in Success. You end up with S, U, C, and E. (You want only one of each letter that appears in the word.) Next, scramble the letters, getting S, E, U, and C (for example). Now comes the fun part: Combine the letters together in an image.

Protection Method #2: Wear a Protection Necklace

Wear a necklace of hematite and amethyst. The hematite grounds you, and the amethyst turns all energy into white light.

Protection Method #3: Take a Ritual Bath

Ritual bathing can be a great way to get rid of the nasties that may cling onto your aura. Bless and consecrate your soap and shampoo. Set these aside for use only during your ritual baths.

How to make a sachet with cleansing herbs for a bath:

Use a stocking or cotton cloth, and place inside selected cleansing herbs. The total amount of all herbs will be one tablespoon.

If you use a cotton cloth, gather the corners and tie them with a string. Make sure the sachet is closed and secure. This keeps the herbs from clogging your drain.

Place your sachet in the bath water then sprinkle in some sea salt and let steep for 5 or so minutes. Then enjoy.

May these three protection methods bring you comfort.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How You Can Stop Hexes and Curses – The Witch’s Bottle

Years ago, fearing that she was being attacked by someone wielding a curse, one of my readers contacted me. What was the solution in that particular situation? A Witch’s Bottle.

A Witch’s Bottle can help protect you from hexes, curses and other baneful spells.

How do you make a Witch’s Bottle?

What you will need:

  • 1 wide-mouthed bottle
  • Iron nail
  • Copper tacks
  • Pins and other sharp objects
  • The victim’s (the person under attack) urine or you can use apple cider vinegar.
  • Sealing wax

What to do:

Clean the bottle and fill it with the iron nail, copper tacks and other objects. Add urine (or apple cider vinegar*) to cover the objects in the jar.

Use the sealing wax to permanently shut the bottle’s top. Identify a place on your property where you can confidently bury the bottle because you know it will not be disturbed.

Say this phrase:

May this Witch’s Bottle protect me and keep me safe from those who would do me harm. May my health and happiness be overflowing. So Mote It Be.

Bury the bottle.

If you don’t have a yard or somewhere to do this, you can bury the bottle in a potted plant. Now, you have something portable; you can take it with you if you move.

*if you use apple cider vinegar use a taglock (traditionally, it was some hair, but it could be something of the person like fingernail clippings, blood, etc.)

May you stay safe and happy.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

I don’t generally write reviews on books I’ve read…but this time i feel lead to. This book spoke volumes to me, as if the author knew exactly where I’m coming from and what I’m struggling with. It’s not often a book can make me cry, but this one did by making me see the many blocks I’ve put up in my life. I knew they were there, but I’ve gotten skilled at pretending they’re not. Thank you for helping me see I’m not some freak because of circumstances throughout my life that have caused the blocks, and that i need to stop hiding from or burying them and face them one step at a time. – Crystal Sparks

She explains how to create spells and gives examples to use, and explains the pitfalls of creating certain types of spells.

Protection – Sage

Smudging

“It’s like she’s still here!” Jennifer said.

“Who?” I asked.

“My mother-in-law. I don’t know how Sam could come from that woman. When she’s in the room with you, it’s like being smothered in resentment and broken dreams.”

“And you still feel her energy?” I asked.

“Yeah! How can it be? She finally went back to her home in New Jersey. But it’s like I can’t escape from her.”

“Let me tell you about smudging,” I said. Originally a Native American technique, smudging helps you cleanse a person or space for protection. Here’s how smudging is a protection-technique. Negative energy sometimes gets on a person. Think of dog hair or cat hair. So you need to dispel this negative energy, and smudging does that.

Spiritual cleansing is a good way to protect yourself, just like washing your hands helps you stay healthy.

In smudging you use the sacred herb, sage. One process is to use a bundle of sage. You carefully light the end of the sage bundle, enough so that smoke rises from the end.

When you use sage it acts like a sponge that soaks up the negative energy of a place or a person (the person’s aura).

Smudging2

How Burning Sage Connects with the Four Elements

Use an abalone shell as a holder for the sage bundle or loose leaves. The shell stands for the Element Water in the smudging process. The sage itself represents the Element Earth.

As the sage burns, we honor the Element Fire. The smoke rising from the burning sage represents the Element Air.

How to Use Sage to Cleanse a Space or a Person

You will need:

The bundle method: Gather enough of the herb sage to make a good pile of it. Use some cotton string or any other natural fiber and gather the sage. Bind the herb strands together to make a sage bundle.

Other method. You could place a pile of sage leaves in a fireproof container.

Next bless and consecrate your sage by using blessed holy water and incense from your altar.

When you are ready, light the sacred sage bundle and waft the smoke arising from the sage around the area to be cleansed.

As you waft the sacred sage smoke around the area, chant or say an incantation of healing or clearing. Envision the sage smoke absorbing the negative energy of a space or a person’s aura.

Fan the smoke and envision the negative energy dissolving away as the smoke dissipates. Make sure to open any windows and fan the smoke out of the home or away from the person being cleansed, healed and protected.

Blessings,

Moonwater SilverClaw

Protection – The Sacred Circle

Circle Setup Graphic
Circle Setup Graphic

 

Moira started her ritual. On the astral plane, this was like lighting a torch. Some entities were attracted. Fortunately, Moira’s mentor taught her well; Moira made sure to correctly cast her Circle!

Among the reasons to cast a Circle, protection and raising energy are key.

Do you really need protection? Isn’t nature all sacred? The short answer is . . . yes.

However, there are entities in the natural world that get attracted to a cast Circle. In the vastness of the astral plane, by casting a Circle, you have lighted a bright torch. The torch attracts everything. Entities are curious, and they’re attracted to energy. It’s what they feed on. So, in a way, you’re ringing the dinner bell.

Casting a Circle and calling your quarters is how you defend your own energy and space. Casting a Circle creates a boundary that defends you from the little buggers on the astral plane.

When you call the quarters, you are summoning the elementals (a form of entity) that help you defend your Circle. They also donate power to your spiritual working.

Calling the quarters is part of building a fortress against unwanted entities that may try to interfere with you and the energy you are raising.

In essence, when you call the quarters,  you are making a temple. A fortified and well-guarded temple.

Blessings,

Moonwater

Protection – Salt

SaltBowl

 

“How do Wiccans protect themselves?” Kristen asked.

“That’s a big topic. What do you want to protect yourself from?” I asked.

“I recently graduated, and I’m temporarily living with my parents. They have a couple of friends who are negative. I want to keep my own room protected from their negative energy.

In today’s post, I’ll share how to protect yourself by using salt.

[In the next few posts, I will share a number of ways to protect yourself. From House Blessings to guarding yourself from energy vampires, I’ve got you covered.]

We’ll begin with one of the main techniques: using holy water. The Priest or Priestess takes sea salt and spring water and mixes them together. Then, the person blesses the mixture. A number of Wiccans say this: “I cast out all negative energies from this water, and I bless this pure water in the names of [pick which Deities].”

Then this mixture is used to cleanse spaces, objects and people.

Why do we use salt? Our ancestors noticed that adding salt to meat made it last much longer than if it was left alone. Although they didn’t know it, the salt killed bacteria and germs so meat was kept edible.

But salt isn’t just for a physical cleansing. Salt provides for a spiritual cleansing, too.

Bad energies and negative spirits don’t like salt. So we use salt to cleanse the Circle we cast. We get rid of the nasties that may be lingering around. Think of salt as spiritual soap!

In the next post, we will talk about how Wiccans use the Circle for protection.

Blessings,
