Not Just a Protection Ritual by Heather


The original ritual was written by my lovely friend Ness and is adaptable, making it very handy to use if you need a starting point for building your own ritual.

Even if you use this as a protection ritual, you can change the candle colour, use different crystals and herbs, use your intuition, and use what you have to hand.

However, Ness has written this ritual in such a way that, you could utilise this as the base for any of your rituals, whatever your intention.

Depending on your intention, change the candle colour, the crystals, or don’t use crystals maybe use a pebble, or an item of jewellery. Use herbs your intuition draws you to, or none. Alter the wording so it flows for your reason for performing your ritual…. the options are only limited by what you have to hand!


Protection Ritual by Vanessa Armstrong

From The Art of Ritual by Rachel Patterson


You will need

Black candle – this is to dispel negative energies

Black tourmaline crystal – this transmutes negative into positive energies

Jet – to absorb negative energies

Sage and rosemary bundle to burn as incense for cleansing

Cloves – may be burned for protection and to purify the energy of the area that the ritual is to be held.

Circle casting

Here I stand in this sacred space.

Our energies are connected.

By the powers of the elements that reside.

This circle is now protected!

Calling in the quarters

Element of air, I call upon you in this ritual.

Show me positive thinking so that I may banish all negative thoughts.

Teach me the knowledge of freedom so that I may protect myself

Hail and welcome!

Element of fire, I call upon you in this ritual.

Bring with you your fiery force, teaching me to protect what is ours.

Show me your willpower and drive so that I may stand my ground.

Hail and welcome!

Element of water, I call upon you in this ritual.

Bring with you your purification so that I may wash away negative energies.

Teach me intuition so that I may be guided and protected.

Hail and welcome!

Element of earth, I call upon you in this ritual.

Bring with you your focus and your strength so that I can be guided in my quest for protection.

Show me stability and wisdom so that I may stand my ground.

Hail and welcome!

You can adjust this, depending on what you need the protection for. For house protection, sprinkle black salt into each corner of the home. Smudging with the sage and rosemary bundle into the corner of each room also has the same effect.

Sit and focus on the lighted candle. Visualise the candle flame spreading out to protect every room in your house.

This can also be used for self-protection too. If you need protection from a person, write their name on a piece of paper, light it with the candle flame and place it in a fireproof dish to burn out. Visualise being protected from that person as the paper burns away.

Thanking the quarters

Element of earth I thank you for your presence in this circle.

I have focus and strength, stability and wisdom and will work

with these to protect what is mine.

Hail and farewell!

Element of water I thank you for your presence in this circle.

I have washed away all that is negative and am guided by

my intuition to remain protected.

Hail and farewell!

Element of fire I thank you for your presence in this circle.

Your fire is my strength to keep myself and those I love

protected,

and the willpower to stand my ground.

Hail and farewell!

Element of air I thank you for your presence in this circle.

You have shown me positivity and have banished all

negative thoughts.

I now have the knowledge I need to protect myself and my

home.

Hail and farewell!

I have stood in this sacred space.

My energies are connected.

By the powers of the elements that reside.

This circle is undone but still protected!

So mote it be!
