Protective magic can take a bit of a dark turn when practising it, however, for the practice of a witch, knowing how one can protect themselves, can probably be the most important part of it.
This type of magic was the first I studied before I practised actual spells. Knowing that I was entering a realm of multiple possibilities, I wanted to make sure I was able to act properly in any case if things went downhill.
In this segment that is to follow, I will be including ways to protect yourself and your home from negative and unwanted energies. You can read the Uncrossing Oil recipe I provided previously, however, this series will be a little bit more extensive on what steps need to be taken for protection to be achieved properly with best results.
Before I continue further, I would like to take some time to mention that a big part of this process has been taken by other books and sources and have put together what I understood was a good process in protecting yourself (sources provided below). However, this segment will also include general traditional spells, personal spells and any other ones that may be useful for my fellow witchcraft practitioners.
Protective spells are a very crucial aspect in the practice of any magical practitioner since in general, we are beings emitting a significant amount of energy, making us easier targets to other practitioners and sometimes spirits. It is also as important for a witch to know how to break curses and get rid of negative energy. We have all met witches who claim that they have never cast a curse. Well, there is a very good chance that they may be lying.
Whether consciously or subconsciously, we have all cast a curse or sent out negative energy to someone at some point in our lives. Even the evil eye is a form of a curse as I mentioned in the post on the subject (link provided above), especially since we are always surrounded by people that can potentially have even a sliver of jealousy towards us.
In any case, a witch or a spiritual practitioner must have the knowledge to take the necessary precautions and actions to protect themselves, their house and their family.
There are 6 steps that must be followed for a complete protection method to take place:
- Detect the attack and if possible it’s nature: one’s intuition will big a major part in detecting the attacks, whether that is through dreams, clairsentience, clairvoyance or any other means
- Break or banish the curse
- Protect yourself
- Protect your house
- Take on reversal and counter-magic actions, such as reversing the jinx, confusing or expelling your enemy
- Heal and recovery from the attack
