Direct and show, guide and teach, their dreams and goals, please help them reach.
For free will of all and harm to none, as I have willed it, It now is done.
So mote it be!
Home Protection Spell
To shield the home from astral and physical intruders. To protect the home from environmental harm. To remove all current negativity and to seal it against future negativity.

Items needed: White candle, frankincense, sage or other protective incense, ground cinnamon, allspice, ginger, or rosemary, lighter, candle, a candle holder, an incense holder.
Stand in the most center part of your home. Light the candle. Light the incense. Pray to your deity to bless your magick and make it manifest. Bring a sphere of white light from the earth into yourself and bring a white light down from above. Bask in the white light. Visualize the white light growing outward until the sphere of light fills your whole house, then take the white light to the edges of your property. Visualize it strongly. See it clearing away any negative energy. Continue to do this until you know the home is clear.
Take the incense into each room of your house. See it driving away negativity and forming a strong barrier of protection.
Say something like:
My home is shielded from natural disasters
And from both astral and physical intruders.
All negativity is dissolved.
It is secured against further negative energy.
Harm to none.
At all doorways and windows, you may draw an image of a fire pentagram. Some may prefer to make it a blue pentagram. See the pentagram strongly.
By this pentagram,
Nothing destructive may invade this place.
This dwelling space.
Harm to none.
Now, take the herb or herbs that you chose and sprinkle it outside along the farthest boundaries of your property and on the ground just outside of the home. Image it forming an even stronger barrier of protection for your home. You can say something while sprinkling the herbs such as:
Herbs ruled by fire,
None may enter here
Unless I desire.
Harm to none.
Now, go back to the center of your home. Feel your most strong feeling of love and hold it in your mind. With white light release the feeling and see the positive emotion engulfing and filling your entire home and property with love. See after you banish negativity you must fill the space with something positive. Don't be the least bit surprised, after conducting this spell, that friends and relatives, that was perhaps unknowingly bad for you, stop coming over to your home also. Say a prayer of thanks to your deity. Allow the white candle to burn itself out.
