Introduction

This post provides instructions that will enable anyone to perform a Warding Spell--a protection spell performed to ensure that no malevolency affects you and yours whilst within your home. It's a relatively simple spell, and the only materials you need to do it, are four small mirrors, a white candle, a piece of fabric or a cloth, a paper and pen to draw sigils with, and paint or nail polish.

By the way--the 'fun to read' part of this article was placed first--ahead of some foundational details, in hopes of inspiring people to read through. Ergo, it is not advisable to perform this spell without reading the entire post first; please bear this in mind.

Warding Spell Instructions

This spell is best worked on a Saturday and during a waning moon.

For this warding rite you will need four small mirrors. Four, because one will be hung in each corner of your home. Mirrors are used in this spell because they are are a top tier tool in returning and deflecting baneful magick.

Create a protection sigil; if you have not made one before, there are two videos within this article, showing how it is done. In your sigil, place an intent; an example--"blocks baneful magick, negative energies, harmful intent, and entities that do not harmonize with my (your) will." Furthermore, you can add intent to amplify the energy of a magickal or psychic attack as it is returned to sender, to deter continued assault. Think such as to amp it 3x, 10x, or whatever you want. Alternatively, you can add an intent to banish all malevolency to the void, rather than return it to sender. No matter what you choose, carefully think your intent through; make sure you have it precisely as you wish it to be and create your sigil accordingly.

There's one more sigil you'll need to make--a linking sigil. This sigil should be created with the intent of being able to link (by energy association), any magickal spell, object, or being, with any other magickal spell, object, or being.

Shorter is Better

You can get a lot of intent into a sigil; however, typically when one creates a sigil, the verbiage from which the design is derived is kept as brief as possible. The purpose for this is to keep the sigil design simple. However, you can make a basic intent for your sigil, such as that it 'protects you and yours from every baneful thing' (short & sweet); but then after you can imbue it with thought, to carry the rest of your intent. To do so, affix your gaze to the initial sigil you've created, and telepathically send any additional intent into it. Alternatively, you can dismiss the idea of keeping the sigil simple, and use longer verbiage; but do try not to get carried away.

Once the sigils are made, put them aside.

Protective Symbols

Next you should discern which protective symbol or symbols you want to paint on the back of each mirror. This is a personal thing, as there are many valid apotropaic symbols. Example symbols include: the pentagram, the daisy wheel, interlocking Vs, the Hamsa Hand, the Eye of Horus, the evil eye, and the dragon's eye symbol.

Time to Paint

Paint the symbol or symbols of your choice on the back of each mirror. Use nail polish, or a paint that will not easily come off. Don't use black marker because it has a tendency to bleed, even with varnish over it.

At one time popularly employed as a protection symbol, the interlocking Vs motif goes largely unused nowadays. Its precise meaning is not certain, but one theory is that it refers to Mary--the Virgin of Virgins. Shown are 2 versions

Imbuing the Mirrors

This is a good time to burn dragon's blood incense if you have any, as it boosts energies; from here forth is where the mirrors will develop much of their protective strength and programming, and a boost won't hurt a bit. Take the protection sigil you created, wrap the mirrors carefully together in cloth, and in with them, wrap the protection sigil. Lay your hands on the cloth and focus your intent upon it. In your mind, imagine the protection sigil as a burning pentagram (the pentagram is strongly apotropaic), see it grow large and strong. See the fiery pentagram break down into minute particles and watch it flow into the mirrors.

With the visualization exercise complete, next, burn a white candle beside the mirrors, and burn the protection sigil the mirrors were wrapped beside, as you do so. Allow the candle to burn completely. Acknowledge closure of the candle's burning in whichever way you do. Recommended: say "as by my intent, it is done."

Energy Top Up

Now we are going to imbue the mirrors with more power and strength yet. Lay the mirrors out in a way that they touch each other at a center-point. Affix your gaze on that center-point. In your mind, imagine a huge draw of protective energy, and feel its strength; you may see it dance, glow and ripple. With your mind, send all of that energy into the mirrors. Do this for as long as you can. It should be no less than five minutes. Repeat the gaze part if less than 15 minutes; and once you have invested at least 15 minutes into doing so in total, conclude this leg of the spell by again saying, "as by my intent, it is done."

The mirrors are now ready to hang; one in each corner of your home.

Gwenny Oh's Review of 'Protection Spells: Clear Negative Energy, Banish Unhealthy Influences, and Embrace your Power'

Since reading this book that places such a heavy focus upon protection rites, my response has been to deeply consider the entire spectrum of issues surrounding the topic, in a way like never before; no more taking self preservation for granted.

___

Activation

Activate the ward from the outside of your home, for it is from the outside that most harm would be expected to come. Protection performed from the outside perimeter of your home is inclusive of the inside; but if you do the activation from the inside, it won't include the outside.

Create a chant; here's an example:

"Me and mine, protected always,

Nothing and no one can trespass.

Me and mine, harmonious always;

Benevolent energies thrive here."

___

Take the linking sigil you made, outside. Chant either what you wrote or what is written above, as you circle the exterior of your home. When you get to the first outside corner of your home that corresponds to an inner corner where a ward mirror is, touch the linking symbol to the wall to connect energies with that mirror. Touch the linking symbol with your other hand to pick up those energies, of course with intent to do that. Then draw a small, invisible clockwise spiral with your finger on the exterior wall there; it's an activation symbol.

Once you have worked that first corner, by intent carry the energies now associated with your hand, on to the next corner and repeat the process. Link all four corners, and you are concluded when you repeat the corner you began with. You must repeat the first corner to ensure absolute closure of the circumference of your ward.

When you have completed the process, state "as by my intent, so it is done."

Mirrors have long been used in magick rites for banishing work and returning hexes to sender. Such tasks are not their only value within occult practices though; they also serve well for divination, and communing with deities & demons light and dark

Go back inside and perform the final step--wear a glove or put a clean cloth over your finger, and make a counter-clockwise spiral motion on each mirror. The glove is to avoid leaving a fingerprint. This is not so much a necessary step as it is an additional one. In magickal rites, any extras we add, provide additional energy to the working at hand. The counter-clockwise spiral is a symbol of removal, and hence supports the work the mirrors are to perform; think of it as a kick-start. Now go ahead and put the final statement of closure on this warding spell--"as by my intent, so it is done."

Keep the linking sigil in a safe place, as you will need it when comes time to recharge.

How to Recharge This Ward

Take the four mirrors and sit them touching at a center-point, allowing you to focus on all at the same time like before. Take the linking sigil and set it at the center-point between the four mirrors. The intent here is for the sigil to become one with the mirrors. Next, focus on the sigil, and visualize it interconnecting with not just the energies of the mirrors, but also all the energies of the ward that you created. What this does is ensure that when you charge the mirrors that you also charge the protection energies relative to them. Finally, charge the mirrors by either moon or sun energies, as either serves a purpose in alignment with simply recharging your ward. To do so, simply sit the mirrors out under moonlight or sunlight for an hour or so.

Once done, say "as by my intent, so it is done." Re-hang the mirrors and you are good to go. The recharging rite should be performed approximately once per month. Try not go get lazy on this, as you and yours may thrive from the advantages of keeping on top.

Again, don't forget to put your linking sigil in a safe place.

Important Details Alluded to in the Introduction

Prior to performing this or any warding spell, first you need to tidy your home and energy clear both your home and yourself. Some may not understand why these things are necessary requisites to performing such a spell. Well, a messy house provides an uncontrolled energy setting. This means that if you do this spell with a messy house, fighting negative energies appropriate to that setting, is part of what will be eating up the strength from your ward. The same theory applies to space clearing, as well as clearing one's own energies--you want the ward to optimize energies in the best way possible, not to simply fritter away energies chipping away on what is already there.

You may have your own ways of performing space clearing and self-energy clearing, but one of each will be offered below lest you don't.

A poor energy setting will potentially hamper not only a ward type of spell, but any type

A poor energy setting will potentially hamper not only a ward type of spell, but any type

Space clearing: use a white sage smudge; light it and traverse your home in an anti-clockwise direction (Widdershins). move along all walls, making sure you get that smoke accessing as much area and surface as you can. Corners are hotspots for settled energies, so make sure to pay due attention to them. Also, pay especial attention to bedrooms, windows and doors, and spaces where people regularly meet, in your home.

Self-energy clearing: use white sage smudge; light it and hover it all around your body. Don't neglect any spots, including the bottom of your feet, underarms, your back, and so on. Continue until you feel satisfied.

A tip: when you tidy your home, remember that you can remove negativity by intent as you clean. For example, when you sweep the floor, sweep negativity away. When you shake cushions, again, dismiss negative energies. Wash surfaces with similar intent.

With all this said-now you are ready to do your warding spell.

How Important Is a Ward to You?

Those new to magick may not fully see how important it is to have a ward up; but seasoned magicians know that there is more magick going on around us and more psychic vampirism as well, than most muggles would ever realize. Skeptical about whether it's worth the effort to conduct this spell? Consider this--how much do you value your life, just the way it is? If you feel great about your life, this rite isn't so important to you. If you place less value on your current life status, well, it may be time to give a protection spell a try.

I didn't make the videos I used as references, but in the near future I do plan to make my own.

Thank you for your comment and your blessing--I appreciate it. In return, I say, may Ra Hoor Khu watch over you.

"This is a good time to burn dragon's blood incense if you have any" - It is a little late at the moment and I missed the word "incense", haha!! 'cause You know ... I had just finished my last bit of dragon blood the other day.

Love how I see: "I Am Healthy And Happy" on the book and right next to it there's a little skull. Good Light there though so, it's all good.

I enjoyed the article as well. I am not much into wards. I enjoy working with the Elements. They provide great protection for me and the Gods, of course.

Well, thank You for fixing that first error message and thanks for putting this piece of writing together.

May Wakan Tanka walk with You.

Thanks for the heads up, Mr. Happy; it should be good now.
