This is a bare-bones, generic spell. Use when the energies in your home or in a particular
room start feeling "off" or negative. This spell can be tweaked to suit your particular
method of working or use as is.

You will need: Small cauldron or other fire-proof bowl for burning herbs - one that you
are able to carry. Your favorite protection oil Clearing herbs such as sage, cedar,
rosemary, etc. Charcoal tablet (a half tablet would suffice) Matches Trace the pentagram
starting from the top point - in this spell you are invoking Spirit. Meditate before you
begin - make sure you're in the right state of mind to proceed. An Alpha state is the best.

The Spell:
Light charcoal in bowl/cauldron and when burning, drop a pinch or two of your clearing
herbs into the cauldron. Take a minute to take in the energy of the herbs. Carry the vessel
around the room - paying special attention to corners, closets, and places negative energy
seems to linger. Project a clear, clean, white light with your mind and say:

"By my will I banish all darkness and let in the light." (repeat around the room)

When you've thoroughly cleansed the room, return to the center and put down your
cauldron. Take up the oil and go to the North. Trace a pentagram on the wall (window
sill, door frame, etc.) Say:

From the North I call to Thee. Blessings of the Spirit Be upon this place.

Go to the East and say:
From the East I call to Thee. Blessings of the Spirit Be upon this place.

Go to the South and Say:
From the South I call to Thee. Blessings of the Spirit Be upon this place.

Go to the West and Say:
From the West I call to Thee. Blessings of the Spirit Be upon this place.

When complete, return to the center of the room and place more herbs on the charcoal.
Stand still a bit and feel the energy of the room/space. Again, project white light outward,
mentally filling all the nooks and crannies. When the energy feels right to you say:

This room is sealed Protected from harm.
Light replaces darkness As I will, so mote it be.

Note: This spell can obviously be expanded for an entire house. Just begin in the center of
the house instead of the center of the room. If you are uncomfortable calling on "Spirit"
for protection, you can substitute the name of your Deity.

Prepare your home and yourself for the onset of spring by first cleaning house the
conventional way. As you do, meditate on the mental debris you need to clean out as
well. Then, when you're ready, take up your ritual broom, start at the front door and
sweep all around the house, visualizing all unwanted things being swept away by your
magickal broom. When you return to the front door, open it wide and sweep this stuff
away. Now light a white candle and carry it around your home. Visualize a light of peace
and newness spreading around you and your home. Make a circle of light before each
window and door, asking the blessings of the Goddess and the God on your home and all
who dwell within it.


Who comes to me, I keep. Who goes from me, I free.
Yet against all I stand who do not carry my key.

Use this as an inscription over a threshold with three pine cones hung loose to blow in the


-- Pentagram Compass Rosemary Lavender Snap lock bag

Glue the Pentagram to the compass, "Spirit" point north. Place everything into bag, and
bury in center of building or middle of door. Pentagram pointing north. Cast a circle,
Chant the spell.

Goddess and God bless this house, Keep it free from bug or mouse.
For good or bad, dark or light, Those unwelcome will feel thy might.
Protect me as I do thy will, here you are master for good or ill
Goddess and God hear my prayer So Mote it Be!

Concentrate on the Spell until you feel the power flowing, Then break the circle and

Find the center point of the house. If there is more than one level, then use the stairs as
the center. Take a cup of red wine and take a sip at each turn. Drain the cup at the end
Face the East saying:

Lady of Love and power and all blessings, breathe Love into this house. Fill the air with
good. Through you and in you, I bless this house.

Face the South saying:

Lady of Love and living and all blessings, warm this house with comfort. Make whole its
hearth. Through you and in you, I bless this house.

Face the West saying:

Lady of tide and time and all blessings, let every hour flow sweetly in this house. Make
pure its tides. Through you and in you, I bless this house.

Face the North saying:

Lady of earth and stability and all blessings, plant security within this boundary. Make
strong its defences. Through you and in you, I bless this house.

Turn to all four points twice more and repeat each time:

You are blessed


Bread is offered to the household guardians as a libation, and the salt is kept in the heart
of the home to ground any evil that might enter. After you do this, burn a purifying or
protecting incense such as frankincense, cinnamon, or pepper moving it from room to
room while you visualize any negativity fleeing from your home. As you go, chant over
and over your words of power:

Smoke of air and fire and earth
Cleanse and bless this home and hearth
Drive away all harm and fear
Only good may dwell in here

A home blessing meditation for charging a room: Sit Straight with palms on lap, take
deep breaths, relax, and move into a mental space where you activate your intuitive
senses, Imagine a cord of energy from your spine connecting you to the Earth, and
channel energy from the Earth through it, Silently ask for divine protection, guidance,
and blessing, Direct your psychic sensing outward, and feel lines of force coming out of
your aura, Note where the strongest energy is (check out the floor, ceiling, directions,
etc), Note spots that feel empty or dead, note places that feel full alive, focus on where
you are sitting and how you feel at that particular spot, Imagine a sphere of light and love
energy at your heart, feel it pulsing outward with every breath. Feel the radiance increase
with every breath, feel your self as a star, continue to breathe deeply and send out the
energy, letting it pulsate in the room, When ready, start making power sounds
representing the love and light you are channeling; use it to amplify the light you are
weaving; and fill the room with the energy, Then shift focus to sending a probe out into
the room, and note the differences in the quality of energy and how you feel about it,
Repeat if necessary, When done, feel the completeness of the work.

A room blessing involving elemental quarter invocations:
Face each direction (with arms out in appropriate elemental invoking gesture), and say,

while channeling and visualizing elemental power:
Powers of (say direction), Powers of (say corresponding element),
We great you, we honor you, we welcome you here!
Watch over and bless and protect this place.

After each invocation, shape the energy into columns of light by sweeping ones arms
together until they are parallel and sweeping them up and down while channeling and
shaping the energy, when the energy is properly shaped; say

So mote it be.

After you have done all four quarters, channel in spirit energy. To return the energy to a
more mellow state while energizing yourself, put your hands out and take in a bit of the
energy into your self from each direction, going widdershins, hold hands to your heart
and take in the energy (techniques also exist for bringing it into a stone and retrieving it
when needed).

Salt & Water Incense (fire and air) Milk & Honey Oil (for anointing)
Wine (for offering) Bells, Pots, Pans, Whistles, etc.

Cast a circle in the main room (living room) and after casting, visualize the circle
expanding to include the entire house. Call upon the spirits and energies living in the
house (or apartment). Invite those who will be harmonious with the new household and
its energies to remain. Invite/ask those who will be happier elsewhere to depart. Release
all "energies" not compatible with the new household. (This may be expressed as a
"release" in order to unbind anything that may be stuck.) Then call upon, greet, and invite
ancestors, patron deities, and all harmonious spirits and energies to dwell in the house as
they please. Gather up the pots, pans, and all the noisemakers. Go to each door and
window, not forgetting the fireplace and dog-door, making as much racket as humanly
possible--to shoo out anything unwanted. (This is hysterical fun, and also raises lots of
energy for the next important step.) Go again throughout the house and at each portal
(door, window, etc.) sprinkle salt-water and cense, saying:

"By the Elements I purify and charge this portal."

Then anoint the portal with milk and honey, saying

"By Milk and Honey I ensure prosperity and peace within this place."

Finally, anoint the portal with oil, saying:

"With Oil I seal this portal and protect all within."

At the front door a special prayer is said, asking the guardian deities (God &
Goddess) to freely grant entry to all friends and loved ones, and to prevent
passage (turn aside) to any who would do harm.

Then, if it's a house pour wine across the width of the threshold; if it's an apartment
anoint the threshold with light touches of wine. The householders then each take a sip of
wine, leaving some as an offering to the Gods, and the Circle should be closed. The
remaining wine, milk, and honey should be offered to the Gods.

At dawn, rise and light some incense. Walk slowly through the quiet house and say the
following words while visualizing their meaning and intent.

House of stone, metal, wood, and earth
Silent one, protective one, you of the four winds
House of health, wealth, joy and peace
Guardian, sustainer, you of earth
House of stone, metal, wood and earth
Secure one, peaceful one, you of the charm
Guarded and protected you be
Cleansed and put you be
Peaceful and loving you be
It is finished in beauty
It is finished in beauty
It is finished in beauty

Set down the incense and draw as exact a likeness of your house as you can from your
imagination. Draw it from all angles; from above, from the front, from behind. If you live
in an apartment, draw the building as well. When finished, go outside and check your
drawing. Is as accurate as you can make it? If not, draw a new one or make changes until
the drawing satisfies you. No great skill is required, you need only make a recognizable
likeness of your home.

When finished, take a white candle and a sharp knife. Cut seven evenly spaced notches in
the candle so that you create a knobbed candle. Now set the drawing down on a table
where it can remain for seven days. Set the candle on top of it and light it while
visualizing your home as blessed, safe and loving.

Let the candle burn down one notch the first day as you go about your early morning
business, then pinch or snuff out the flame and leave it until the next day. The next
morning, repeat the ritual - from lighting the incense and saying the blessing chant to
burning one candle notch. On the seventh day, after the candle has burned down all the
way, fold the drawing into a tight package and secure it with red or white cord. Place it in
a wooden box with salt and dried roses and tie the box shut with another white cord.
Finally, place the box in the home where it won't be seen or found.

I will serve the Great Goddess,
And give reverence to the Great God,
I am a Pagan, A stone in the ancient circle,
Standing firmly, Balanced on the earth,
Yet open to the winds of heaven,
And enduring through time,
May the old gods witness my words


Hearken as the Witch's word
Calls the lady and the lord
Moon above and earth below
Sky's cool blue and sun's hot glow
In this right and ready hour
Fill these pages with thy power
May no unprepared eye to see
The secrets which trusted be
To I who walk the hidden road
To find the hearthstone's calm abode
Guardians from the four directions
Hear me and lend thy protection
May these truths of Earth and skies
Shaded be from prying eyes
But to the witches whose map this be
May the way be plain to see
And through all the coming ages
May we find home in these pages
So mote it be!

Preparation: At the time of the Full Moon, take your Book of Shadows (one that hasn't
been written in yet) and some incense (pennyroyal, anise or rue) outside.

Ritual: Under the light of the Full Moon, draw a pentagram on the first page and under
this write the following information: date, time, place, your magical name (and sigil if
you have one), the moon's phase and any other info you feel is important. Hold the book
up to the Moon and say:

"Here as the Full Moon shines upon me,
Bless this Book I've made tonight.
I humbly ask this of thee,
Underneath your most sacred light."


Hearken as the witch's word calls to all, a gulf to ford. Bridge the vast realities.
An it harm none, do as ye please.
Elements, protect and guard this book, from wandering eyes and prying looks.
Fill it with thine ancient powers, in this right and ready hour.
Powers of the North, the East below, help me to live, to learn, to grow.
Lend your strength and stability, to practice the Craft and with love be free.
Powers of East, the wind, the Sky, watch over these pages with thine eye.
Your wisdom and knowledge, for these I do ask,
that this book be worthy of the Craft and its task.
Powers of South, Fire, and hearth, help these
Shadows to prove their worth. Infuse them with all your healing and passion,
so only good comes from the work that is fashioned.
Powers of West, the Water and sea, change and growth are granted by thee.
Bless these pages with all that you know, that righteous readers may learn and grow.
And to the unschooled eye that see,
confusing words and sophistry, lead them from these sacred pages,
and bless their passage through the ages.
For free will of all, and harm none, as I have willed it, it is now done.
So mote it be!

" Oh Great Ones,
My Goddess and my God,
I call upon you,
In need of your help,
Bless this water,

(Hold up small bowl of water.)

Bless this water,
With you power,
With you purification,
With you healing powers,
Bless this water

(put bowl down, and now use the water for power, purification and healing)

With the water you so blessed, May this harm none,
The spell is done, So mote it be and blessed be ."

Bake a fresh loaf of bread. Hold it up to the moon and ask the lady to bless the bread as
well as the relationship. Break off a piece of the bread for your partner, as well as one for
yourself as well. As you share time together, share the bread as well. Do not cut the bread
with a knife or any other cutting tool. Just break off the pieces with your hands. Adding
butter or jam might be a good idea to help sweeten things up a bit.


Home-cleansing methods are of great importance in African-American hoodoo folk-
magic. Here is a simple procedure for blessing a new home and ridding a house of any
unwanted spiritual influences. Wash down the wood work and floors with Chinese Wash
(or Van Van Oil in water) from back to front and out the front door and throw the
remaining wash water out the front door or in the front yard. If there is no front yard,
carry some of the wash water to the nearest street intersection or crossroads and throw it
to the East. Then use a brand new broom to sweep the house from back to front and out
the front door. Some folks also like to sprinkle Van Van Powder at the front threshold and
sweep that away from the house. After cleaning as above, put down pinches of salt in the
corners of each room or, if you are in a hurry, four pinches of salt at the four outside
corners of the house.


When presenting your house spirits with offerings of incense, candles or what not you
can say this little chant:

"Wraith of the house, Take heart and live,
To every chamber This light I give,
To every corner This breath I send
Approve and favor my willing hand."

To convert the senses This blessing gives the body more connection with the spirit. It
may also help with your readiness to channel. To be done at night in the moon's view.
Extravagance is not appreciated. Light a large white candle. Burn sandalwood and basalm
and pine. Prepare a bowl of water sprinkled with salt. Put this before you and touch it to
each part of your body.

To the eyes
Bless my eyes that I might have clarity of vision

To the mouth
Bless my mouth that I may speak the truth

To the ears
Bless my ears that I may hear all that is spoken and not

To the heart
Bless my heart that I may be filled with love

To the uterus
Bless my womb that I may be in touch with my creative energy that stems from the

To the feet
Bless my feet that I may find and walk my own true path

Fill yourself with understanding, and from that love. Extinguish candle when done (can
be used for other purposes).

Envision the person you intend to bless, concentrating upon this with your eyes closed,
and speaking rhythmically, feeling each part of the blessing as you think it.

"For you, through the power of the Lady, a helmet of light.
For you, through the power of the Lady, strength that is growing,
Strength to strength, and ease and easeful sleep, and gladness spreading,
Thankfulness spreading through all of your body, all of yourself, in the power of the
By the power of the Lady, through the power of the Lady."


In the phase of a new moon, stand where it shine directly onto you, keep with you a bowl
of consecrated water, some crushed rose petals, a pinch of salt, and any protection
incense, also your pen of choice. Sprinkle all the things you have gathered into the water,
and say times three:

'Ink so black as the night blessed be times three
said times three with moon light blessed be.
serve me right serve only me
through good and bad so mote it be!

If using a red or blue pen, just change 'black' to whatever it may be, and change 'night' to
whatever may be fitting.


Before leaving on a lengthy journey, bless your car. Walk around it clockwise and
examine the body, the windows, the wheels, and so on. Imagine yourself storing up more
and more energy within yourself with each breath that you take, then breathe out all of
the energy, fixing it in each of the car's part. Say aloud,

"May the protection of the Lord and the Lady be in and about this vehicle,
that it may deliver us safe to our destination. So mote it be!"

This spell is worked to build appreciation and thankfulness for the loving Goddess and
Spirits who have brought you together with the one you love. Take a white candle. Clean
it for ritual use. Anoint it with Gratitude or I'm Thankful Oil. Light it every night or
morning as part of your daily prayer or meditation time holding the thoughts of
thankfulness and gratitude for all that you have including the love in your life. When
finished, take the wax and sprinkle it with salt. Rinse in running water. Place in white bag
with pinch of salt and dispose of it.


This spell can be used on the Full Moon, to bless the Holy Water you have made You can
then save it and use to bless candles etc.
You will need; A bowl, jar or cup filled with the Holy Water made see previous post Put a
compact mirror or small miror in the Bowl so the moonlight glints off it with the silvery
light of the Goddess Say:

" Oh Great Ones ,
My Goddess and my God ,
I call upon you,
In need of your help,

Put bowl down. You have made Full Moon blessed water,
and you can now use the water for power, purification and healing.

Then say,

With the water you so blessed,
May this harm none,
The spell is done,
So mote it be and blessed be ."

**The water is charged in the light of the full moon overnight**

Get a white candle -- either a plain one (offertory, pillar, or taper) or a figural one in the
gender of the person you want to bless. Carve the person's full name on the candle, then
dress it with Blessing Oil or Holy Oil. For more power, you may place a name-paper of
the person, or a photo, or some personal item of theirs (such as a bit of hair or a snippet of
clothing) either under the candle or next to it. One easy way to do this is to place the
paper or personal concerns under an overturned saucer and put the candle on top of the
saucer. Burn a portion of the candle every day for seven days, pinching it out between
burnings. As you light it each day, say this

[Name], may you be blessed
May all good things come to you
May nothing whatsoever harm you
May your heart be light
May your travels be safe
May your health be good
May your mind be sound
May your friendships sustain you
May you be blessed in every way

* If you have a special request for this person (such as that they find a lover, get a good
job, come home safely from a war, or whatever), just add it to the list. Some people use a
large pillar-type candle and keep it going for longer than seven days. They may make a
habit of burning such a candle every day -- or once a week, on Sundays -- for as long as
their friend or relative needs help, even doing so for months at a time. If the candle is
large and it is to be burned in this way, it should be re-dressed with Blessing Oil or Holy
Oil once a week: after the initial dressing, you can drop a tiny bit of oil into the "well" or
hole in such a large candle just before lighting it each time.

This ritual should be performed during the new moon, but it is not limited to that phase.
Need, not season, determines the performance There is real power in the Self Blessing; it
should not be used other than in time of need and should not be done promiscuously. The
purpose of the ritual is to bring the individual into closer contact with the Godhead
/Goddess. It can also be used as a minor dedication, when a person who desires
dedication has no one who can dedicate him. This self-blessing ritual may also be used as
a minor exorcism, to banish any evil influences which may have formed around the
person. It may be performed by any person upon himself, and at his desire. Perform the
ritual in a quiet place, free from distractions, and nude.

You will need the following:
1. Salt, about one-quarter teaspoon. 2. Wine, about an ounce.
3. Water, about one-half ounce. 4. Candle, votive or other.

The result of the ritual is a feeling of peace and calm. It is desirable that the participant
bask in the afterglow so that he or she has called the attention of the Goddess or Godhead
to himself, asking to grow closer to the Godhead/Goddess in both goals and in wisdom.
When you are ready to begin, sprinkle the salt on the floor and stand on it, lighting the
candle. Let the warmth of the candle be absorbed into the body. Mix the water into the
wine, meditating upon your reasons for performing the self-blessing. Read the following

Dip the fingers of the right hand into the mixed water and wine and anoint the eyes.

Anoint the nose.

Anoint the mouth.

Anoint the breast.

Anoint the loins.

Anoint the feet.

Remain... and meditate for a while. You will feel renewed.

You will need a small votive candle and holder (white is always good, but use color if
you feel called to do that), an incense stick, cone, or herbs (such as sage or thyme) to
burn a small container of water, a small container of salt

I find that a sugar and creamer set works very well for this. These can be purchased quite
reasonably and set aside just for this use. This you to the deepest levels of healing. It also
connects you to the four elements and their energies. In this way it is most helpful for
dealing with the shamanic elemental energies of Nature.

The candle represents the element of Fire
The incense or herbs represent Air
The container of water is Water
The container of salt is Earth.

Beyond that, these elements reflect your own needs.

Fire reflects your relationships, protection, ideas and achievements.
Air reflects your creativity, spirituality, inspiration and philosophies.
Water reflects your emotions, intuition, dream states, psychic gifts, and healing balance.
Earth reflects your practicality, knowledge, sacred wisdom, and growth.

Find a quiet time and place where you will not be disturbed. You may make this as
ceremonial or as informal as you choose. Light the incense and take a few moments to
consider the element of Air. Consider the gifts that Air reflects in you. Light the candle
and take a few moments to consider the element of Fire. Consider the gifts that Fire
reflects in you. Take a few moments to consider the element of water and how it reflects
in you. Take a few moments to consider the element of Earth and how it reflects in you.
Very gently, pour the water into the container of salt. If you are using herbs as an incense,
you may sprinkle a few in the water and salt mixture. Stir the salt and water with your
fingers. Consider the blending of elements that creates life itself. Consider the balance of
elements and their attributes in your life. Take a few moments to do this. Facing the
candle, dip your fingers in the water mixture and touch your forehead (3rd eye area). Say:

"Bless me Mother, for I am your child."
(The original was written for the Goddess as Mother. Another deity name can be
substituted here, or simply say "Spirit.")

Now dip your fingers in the water mixture and touch the area around your eyes carefully.
Say: "Bless my eyes that I may see you."

Dip again and touch your nose.
Say: "Bless my nose that I may breathe your essence."
Dip again and touch your ears.
Say: "Bless my ears that I may hear your wisdom."

Dip again and touch your mouth.
Say: "Bless my mouth that I may speak your name."

Dip again and touch your heart.
Say: "Bless my heart that I may feel your love."

Dip again and touch your lower abdomen.
Say: "Bless my cauldron center that I may create harmony."

Dip again and touch your feet.
Say: "Bless my feet that I may walk in balance."

Dip again and rub your hands together.
Say: "Bless my hands that I may share your healing in my work."

Take all the time you need to concentrate on the elements before you. Focus your
attention on the candle and visualize healing light flowing into you. Feel strength
emerging from deep inside yourself. Breathe deeply and capture that moment. Connect
with the source of strength and healing. When you feel you are finished, blow out the
candle. It is good to leave the incense burning if you can. Air is a communicating
element, and smoke is transformation. The incense carries the messages of healing and
strength to Spirit. If you have used herbs, it is good to return the ashes to Nature. In this
way, you are grounding the energy, bringing the message and the transformation to earth.
Make sure the ashes are cold; then place them at the roots of a tree or bush if possible. If
not, place them in soil or sand. The salt and water mixture can be used very effectively in
several ways. You may wash your gemstones or other stones in this. Crystals love this,
since their energy is so personally connected to yours. You may save the mixture and dab
a little on your third-eye area every day for a few days, as a reminder. You may pour the
mixture into your bath for a gentle energizer. When the bathwater drains, visualize a
connection between yourself and the energies of Mother Ocean. You may return the
mixture to earth by pouring it on soil or sand. Remember, plants don't thrive in salt; so
keep the mixture clear of plants. You may sprinkle the mixture throughout your house to
seal in positive energies and protection.

To consecrate, bless and dedicate Wedding Rings to the Lord and Lady, first find the
place where you wish to set up the altar. This place must not be disturbed, for it will take
on sacred and holy energies, and you will not want anything to happen to this area. Write
two blessings to read to each other if you desire to and use some beautiful music if there
is some available. Have a Chalice of wine on the altar to drink from after the blessing.
Remember, the more energy and work that you put into your blessing ceremony , the
more magical energy it will take on. You may even use an energy bell or Tibetan bell to
signify that you are beginning to call those spiritual guides to assist you with your
blessing of the rings. Once you have found that place, take a smudge wand of Sage, light
it and begin to clear the air around the altar. Constantly, keep Love and Light in your
consciousness. Now, move to the four elements and ask for their guiding presence and for
their blessing for your rings.

Use a compass if needed to find the proper directions on the Earth.
North= Earth, South= Fire, East= Air, West= Water, Around= Spirit

Ask for their blessings and honor their assistance.
Next, begin to set up the altar, placing each of the two rings you wish to bless on the altar
gently and reverence. You may wish to use two 7 day candles (buy cheaply) to represent
the eternal presence of the God and Goddess in your life. Black for God, White for
Goddess. Red Candle for fire, incense for Air, small bowl of water for west, and salt for
the Earth and North. Once your altar is set up the way you want it, spend a few moments
in quiet meditation thinking about what this Ring Blessing Ceremony means to you.
Now, allow the altar to fill you with its magic and energy. Feel the magic around you.
breathe in the Love and Light from the Lord and Lady. Visual yourself and your love for
each other revitalized because of it's presence. See yourself becoming more healthy,
whole, and wise.

Now, say aloud the Blessings you have written for each other.
Sprinkle the rings with Salt for North; (Earth) Pass rings over or through the red candle
flame; South (Fire) Sprinkle rings with water, West (Water) Pass rings through Incense
smoke, East; (Air) Say something like:

"We pledge these rings consecrated to the Lord and Lady
to each other as an outward symbol of our love for each other ."

Drink some wine from the Chalice holding it each to the others lips. Replace Chalice.
When you are ready to end your Ring Blessing Ritual; sound the bell once again,
thanking all elements for their presence and assistance. Send them back to their humble
abode harming none on their way. Now, thank the Lord and Lady for their presence in
your life. Take a deep breath of the fresh magic around you and repeat:

So mote it be!
