- Medium-size fireproof bowl
- Sheet of paper
Best Time to Perform:
This Spiritual Protection Ritual is best performed the morning after the Dark Moon or on the Witch's New Moon (first moon crescent).
Find a quiet space and time where you will not be disturbed. Ideally, this particular ritual should be performed near a cracked open window for the smoke to escape quickly. As with all rituals, your altar surface must be fireproof.
Take a deep breath and allow your body and your mind to relax.
Breathe out stress, breathe in joy.
Breathe out worry, breathe in comfort.
Breathe out tension, breathe in serenity.
Step 1: On the blank sheet of paper, on the front and back, write the following protection statement as many times as it will fit:
I AM PROTECTED.
I AM GUARDED.
I AM SAFE.
AND SO IT IS.
Those that are comfortable with inviting ancestral spirits into their practice may write on the exterior of the statement paper:
"Ancestors, I now call upon you. I ask you to surround me and protect me. Guard me against all harm. "
Step 2: Place the paper in the fireproof bowl.
Step 3: Begin visualizing an egg shape of white light enveloping you. Sit within this white light all around your body; under your feet, over your head, covering both arms. Breathe.
Step 4: Pick up the 4 Ritual Candles and roll them between the palms of your hands while visualizing the egg of white light turning into a beautiful shade of dark purple. You will notice the density of this energetic egg will become heavier and turn into a sturdy shield. At this stage, the energetic shield forming all around you will become nearly palpable to all the senses. The beeswax should now be warm from the heat of your palms.
Step 5: Place the Ritual Candles on top of the paper inside the bowl. Dust about 1/2 teaspoon the Tiger's Eye Ritual Blend over the Ritual Candles. Some of the Ritual Blend will remain on the paper.
Step 6: Create a Candle Braid. Gather the four Ritual Candles in your hand, make sure they are lined up evenly. While holding both ends of the candles, gently begin to twist in opposite directions. The motion is similar to wringing out wet laundry. The candles' bottoms (or legs) should then be untwisted for the last 1/2-1 inch of the candles. Spread each of the candle legs to 4 opposing sides, forming a self-contained base. Place the Candle Braid on top of the paper inside the bowl.
Step 7: Begin chanting your protection statement. Now light the candles and continue visualizing your energetic barrier strengthening. See it becoming iron-strong, repelling anything negative that dare come in its direction.
Step 8: While the candle burns (about 20-30 minutes) light your chosen smudge bundle from the flame of the candles. While sitting in front of the candles, cover your entire body with the smoke of the smudge. Make sure to smudge under the soles of your feet, behind your neck, and about 6 inches over the crown of your head.
Step 9: The candle braid will now do one of two things:
- Extinguish itself in its own puddle of wax.
- Will light the paper on fire, and the flame will consume everything. If this is the case, allow it to (safely!) burn and extinguish naturally. This is usually a physical indication that there was indeed some energetic resistance.
If you have called upon your ancestors or helpful spirits for protection, thank them during this final step. It is recommended that you set our a small offering for them on the same evening, such as a glass of wine and bread.
Step 10: Remnants
Whether your ritual remnants are ash or a puddle of wax with paper, they will need to be ritually disposed of in the same manner. Bury the ritual remnants, including the ashes from the smudge, in front of your home. This serves as physical protection for both your home and your energy field. If a yard is not available, acquire a healthy indoor plant and place the remnants inside the dirt. Situate the plant near the front of your home or on the porch.
What to Expect: You will notice you will have incredibly vivid dreams the night of this riyal. You may even experience lucid dreams, where you have control over what is happening. Pay close attention to the synchronicities that begin happening around you over the next 28 days. Before entering a challenging situation or place, visualize the protective barrier around your physical body. You will immediately notice energies bouncing off your physical and spiritual body. If you choose to bury the spell remnants on your property, you will notice the area will become exceptionally peaceful.
Old World Moon Phases
The Moon is of key importance for the Old World Witch. The Moon and its cycle (increase and decrease) impact the potency of rituals and their successes. The Moon amplifies rituals and works in harmony with the energies exerted by the Witch.
As Old World Witches, we utilize elemental forces for magick and mystical significance of the natural world and its fauna and flora: Esoteric knowledge. Lore of healing. Energetic resonance of herbs and roots. And, of course, the Moon.
The Old World Witch does not follow the exact terminology and specifications of modern astrologers and astronomers. We maintain the visual interpretation and energies of the Moon, as explained below.

When the Moon cannot be seen and is in the dark phase, it is referred to as the Dark Moon in Old World Witchcraft. Modern astronomers and astrologers call this darkness the New Moon because the cycle of the Moon is about to restart.
Old World Witches are not the only ones who follow this Dark Moon terminology. Several ancient cultures (such as Islam) define this period as the end of the month and the very first crescent of the Moon (Witch's New Moon) as the beginning of the month.
The Witch's Dark Moon is a night of stillness, contemplation, and banishment. The only types of rituals that should be done on the Dark Moon are banishment work or curses/hexes. The Dark Moon is also ideal for all kinds of divination and working with the departed.
The Moon is energetically at its lowest point and is more conducive to the mentioned rituals.
Witch's New Moon (first crescent)
The New Moon of the Old World Witch is called the Witch's New Moon. It is when the very first crescent or sliver of the Moon is visible. This is typically 2-3 nights after the Dark Moon.
With some variations, the Witch's New Moon rises in the daytime before noon and becomes visible in the day sky. It will be most visible at sunset and usually sets well before midnight. The Witch's New Moon is the same percentage all over the world - both in the Northern and Southern Hemisphere. However, the tips of the Witch's New Moon point depend on the time, date, and location on Earth.
The Witch's New Moon is the ideal time to begin rituals that draw a life experience, physical possession, or situation to you. This can be for love, money, health, or personal development.
Rituals are best performed for 3-12 consecutive days. This is what leads to powerful, lasting, and most importantly, measurable results. Starting rituals three nights after the Dark Moon will give you exactly 12 days of rituals leading up to the Full Moon.
The Witch's New Moon is also the ideal time to begin a new venture, get married, apply for a job, or embark on a journey.
The same energetic attributes apply throughout the Waxing Moon, all the way up to the Full Moon.
The Full Moon is not only the most magickally potent and powerful time of the month, but it is also the most physically stimulating. As the Moon affects the ocean tides, so too does it affect our bodies. If you pay close attention to your body, you may have noticed that you may feel extra swollen or puffy on the mornings leading up to the full Moon and a couple of days thereafter. These are the days of maxi dresses, undereye concealer, and perhaps an inclination to wear fewer rings on your fingers.
Rituals are best performed for 3-12 consecutive days. This is what leads to powerful, lasting, and most importantly, measurable results. If you have been performing rituals leading up to the Full Moon, consider the night of the Full Moon the climax of your ritual.
The Full Moon signifies the cultivation of goals, the peak of a cycle, and emotional fulfillment. The Full Moon is best used to draw something into your life, such as love, financial prosperity, or self-development.
If, however, you are choosing not to perform any magick on the night of the Full Moon, simply sitting under the moon rays and energetically absorbing the magnetism will reawaken and revitalize your spirit.
Whether you're having a difficult time leaving an unsuitable relationship or are trying to eliminate negative self-talk, the Waning Moon is perfectly capable and willing to help phase out what is no longer needed or wanted.
In addition to removing negative influences from your life, this is also an appropriate time to cast revenge spells (curses).
The Waning Moon reminds us of things yet to be done and that time is slipping away. Anxiety is usually heightened during this time; therefore, self-care is critical.
