Today I returned the ring to my friend and helped her to work some magical protection efforts. I walked in to her home and set up at her kitchen table. From my bag, I removed a box of sea salt, a sage smudge stick, a jar of rose water, and a bag of red brick dust.
I cast a circle. First, just large enough to surround the kitchen table. I invoked the Star Goddess and the Guardians, asking them to lend their energy to our magic. I blessed the items and charged them with the energy of protection.
I then pushed the circle outward, to surround the house. I pushed the circle out once again to surround my friend’s entire property.
I took up the sea salt and handed it to my friend. She sprinkled it around her property. While she was doing this, I visualized the sea salt forming a boundary that would serve as a warning to any who tried to harm her.
When she returned, I handed her the lit stick of sage. Again, she carried this around her property. I visualized the smoke fogging the senses of anyone who would attempt to cause her harm.
My friend sprinkled the rose water around her home. In doing so, she created a boundary that only love could cross. After she was done, I buried the left-over thorns from the jar beside her front door, willing them to pierce the spirit of anyone who would attempt to do her harm.
Finally, we lined each door and window with a line of red brick dust. Willing that anyone who should cross them that would do her harm would feel the full force of our magic.
We joined hands at her kitchen table and thanked the Guardians and Goddess for their assistance. Instead of taking down our circle, we visualized it forming a boundary around her home to solidify our spell.
I really hope that her stalker takes the hint and leaves her alone. For their sake.
