Magickal Shielding and Warding
« on: August 11, 2012, 09:22:23 PM »
There are many people who think that if you don't believe in magick, spells, curses, etc., then it can't hurt you. That's not true. Someone who believes they're being cursed is more open and susceptible to it, but that doesn't mean those who scoff can walk away with no ill effects.
Shielding is something you do for yourself as an individual. One of the best ways it to focus on the space below your heart in the area of the solar plexus, it's a seat of power, and envision a sphere of protective energy forming. I find it best to have my feet firmly on the floor, eyes closed while in deep concentration, and breathing in through the nose, out through the mouth. Once you've envisioned that sphere they imagine it expanding outward to encompass your entire body. You want it to be somewhat flexible and permeable. If you envision yourself locked in a iron ball or behind brick walls, you will cut yourself off from everything around you, and that's not the point of the shield. You want your energy to be able to move out from the shield. Think of it as having a charge that, when it meets negative energy, grounds it into the earth. A bit like a lightning rod.

Warding is similar but is attached to a particular place. Instead of powering it with your own energy, use earth energy to power it. There are dozens of different things you can do. I've found that placing salt on window sills, red brick dust below the doorways, and I hang my besom (broomstick) on the inside of the front door. It's decorated with various protection herbs and flowers. You can also take certain protection oils, the 'Net has many recipes so choose one that you can make with what you have at home. You can use them to mark windows with a protection symbol that is meaningful to you (including cross, star of David, pentagram, etc. The oil can also be used in your car, in the wash water of your laundry to add protection, etc.
