Blessing, Cleansing and Protecting Your Home

House protection spells can be beneficial, whether you feel threatened in your home or not. These types of spells are not only used to keep negative energy and evil spirits out of your home, but can also help in creating a barrier against physical threats and harm as well.

All protection spells gain extra power if they are cast on a Saturday, a day ruled by the planet Saturn which is known to govern over bindings, protection and defensive magick. As for the ritual, you have a few options – select one that best suits you.  Here you will find a collection of ideas for blessing, cleansing and protecting your home. there are many variations and ideas for this, feel free to adapt or create your own.
 
A Stirring (or spell) Created to Bless Your Home
1. Light a candle in honor of the hearth fire (nowadays, this isn't usually a fireplace but the stove on which meals are prepared).
2. Light incense in offering to your own hearth deity (or deities).
3. With hands upraised say:
Spirits of our hearth and home
Watch over all who dwell here.
Protect us from harm and fear.
We trust in you to keep safe
All that we hold dear to heart.

Beating the Bounds
Believed to be derived from Pagan roots, this is practiced by modern Pagans and Christians. The term refers to beating or pounding the perimeter of your property with a staff. This tradition has been revived at Cholesbury-&-St Leonard's in England.

Sweeping Away the Bad
Use your anointed and consecrated besom (broom) to sweep out all negativity from your home and also sweep in the air at the perimeter. Picture all negativity and bad things swept away and a barrier created. 

Protective Herbs and Plants
Hanging garlic in the kitchen isn't just used in B-movies to keep vampires away but also to repel any unwanted visitor. Common household herbs such as cumin, rosemary, lemon grass, dill, and basil can be utilized in protective magic. Sprinkle them around your property dry or make a tea out of one or more of them to be poured out over the boundaries of your land. Holly bushes and mistletoe are also traditionally protective. 

Programming Crystals with Intent of Protection
In order to charge clear quartz crystals with the purpose of protection, first cleanse them with salt or running water. Hold them in your hands while mentally putting your intention into them. Bury them at the corners of your property. You can also place some at the doorways and windows of your home. You can also place the charged crystal in water and sprinkle the water around your property. Some people like to combine clear quartz crystal programming with a light visualization and a meditation with a grounding stone like smoky quartz. 

Offerings for the Land
Make offerings to the land spirits and deities revered as keepers of your hearth and home. Whiskey and bread with honey are said to be favorite offerings of the fairies. Leaving a spirit plate is the practice of placing a bit of food from one or all of your meals on a dish out for the land spirits. Offerings such as wreaths and other handmade crafts, food, drink, and even coins are given in the spirit of reciprocity to those beings who protect your home. It's important not to forget the indoor spirits as well. 

A Ring of Salt
Known as the all-purpose magical tool, sea salt is thought to be very effective in home protection. Kosher salt, black salt as well as plain table salt can be sprinkled around the perimeter of the property for this purpose. Be sure to sprinkle the salt across every door and window threshold! You may choose to chant a prayer while you do this such as By Earth, Air, Fire, and Water, my home is secure inside and out. 

 

Light Visualization 
Ground and center yourself in whatever method you prefer. Visualize a sphere of white light above your home that stems from the a deity, spiritual companion or universal source. The sphere gradually becomes larger until it surrounds the top of your home. As you draw down this light, visualize it transforming unwanted energies into light from the source.

Devil's Shoestring
Drive them into the ground around the front door or place a bundle of them above the door lintel or mantelpiece. It is used for protection, to "trip up the Devil" or "hobble" him so he can't get in a house.

 

Symbols for Protection
Inscribe symbols for protection such as the pentagram, runes, ogham or any symbol you have magically charged on the earth around your home or on an object such as a rock to be placed near your doorway. You can incorporate these symbols into a decorative plaque to hang inside or outside an entryway. 
Some examples of protection symbols are:
