Vehicle Protection Sachet Spell



Have you ever seen the show Dead Like Me? If you haven't, you MUST! It's about a young girl who dies and becomes a grim reaper. Like many great shows, it was only on for two seasons. During that short (but amazing) run, George (short for Georgia) makes a statement I find myself thinking about more than I probably should:

If people knew how close they came to death every day, they would never leave the house.

This statement is true. If you don't believe me, watch the drivers around you next time you're in the passenger seat. If you can go fifteen minutes without watching someone text WHILE the car is careening forward, I'll send you a doughnut. 

People make bad judgments. I learned that at 18 when a man in the opposing lane of a rural highway thought he had enough time to get across the road and quickly realized he didn't. His response? To stop dead in the road....in front of me....giving me just enough time to realize I was about to be in an accident and to hope I didn't piddle in my panties. I made it through the accident with clean undies, but not without a neck injury that continues to cause severe migraines and numb hands over twelve years later.

I don't have any anger towards that other driver. He made a poor decision. We're human. Stuff happens. It was an honest mistake. Even if it left me with a lifelong injury, he didn't decide to go out and hurt someone that night. It was human error.

What isn't a mistake is when people consciously take their eyes off the road to send texts, make a call, grab something from the glove compartment, etc. We see the public service warnings every day, but we've become desensitized to the truth: Driving while distracted is HORRIBLY dangerous. Yet almost everyone does it. It's offensive, really. Human life is not worth the risk. PLEASE pay attention while driving. Don't contribute to a despicable problem. 

But all the attentiveness in the world can't make up for someone's careless decision. My mother-in-law was stopped at a red light when a young woman—who was busy texting—hit her at SEVENTY miles an hour. Literally the only part of the car that wasn't obliterated was the driver's seat. Divine intervention at its finest. So how do you protect yourself from another's actions?

Magick. When in doubt, always choose magick.

Below you will find my personal Vehicle Protection Sachet Spell that I use in my family's vehicles. They have kept us safe, and I hope they will do the same for you!

I prefer a small sachet over a ritualistic spell because I'm guessing most people don't want to perform a full circle in their driveway to surround their car in protective energy. I'd love to SEE someone do that. I'd want to be your best friend if you did that. But even I, as brazen as I am, wouldn't feel comfortable casting in my driveway with cars and judgement rolling by. This is a nice inconspicuous way to protect your vehicle, and it smells fantastic! =D



Vehicle Protection Sachet Spell

Supplies:

Small charm bag or a piece of cloth and ribbon
Sage (dried)
Cedar or Rosemary (dried)
Pinch of salt (Course is better, but table salt works too)
3 pieces of Dragon's Blood (use a hefty pinch if powdered) 
3 Cat whiskers* and/or strands of wolf hair**
Small rock (or amethyst gemstone if desired)

*Please do NOT pull out your cat's whiskers! My kitty leaves me whiskers all the time, which I collect in a jar and save for spells. If you don't have a cat or your cat doesn't leave you whisker presents, simply skip this and replace it with something that resonates with you, like a small bird feather or a pretty seashell. Whatever embodies magick to you.

**A particular wolf sanctuary in Colorado used to sell the wolf hair they collected during shedding season as a way to support the sanctuary. Unfortunately, they don't sell it any longer. I haven't found another source, though I am looking for you! If you decide to purchase wolf hair, please make sure it is humanely sourced! Nothing will ruin your spell like poached wolf hair!

As with any spell, go to a quiet place where you won't be interrupted. Make sure you're in a focused, good mood and not distracted or agitated. 

While visualizing yourself (and your family) safe and secure in your vehicle, add the above items to the charm bag, reserving the pentacle. Once you're done, pull the drawstrings closed or tie closed with the ribbon. (The pentacle can be tied into the drawstring or ribbon if you choose to use one.)

Take a few moments to hold the sachet in your hands and charge it with protective energy. You can do this by envisioning your vehicle in a blue or purple bubble, by quietly chanting the words "protection and safety," or by whatever means you find preferable. Just take a moment to feel the energy tingling in your palms and passing into the bag and its contents. 

Once you feel the bag is charged, take it to your vehicle. Here you have two options:

1. Leave it in a place where it definitely won't be removed.
2. Hang it from your rear view mirror where the sunlight will feed the energy of your spell. I suggest skipping the pentacle if hanging as it may refract sunlight into your eyes while driving, which kind of defeats the purpose...

Either way, you have one more step before the spell is complete. ;)

When tying it to the mirror (or you can simply tie it shut if you're leaving it hidden in the car), repeat these words as you tie THREE knots:

With each knot, I bind this spell
Safety, protection, all is well
Sheltered and shielded, this vehicle shall be
Three times three, SO MOTE IT BE!

Say that last part with conviction, always. ;)

Now remember, magick can only work when physical action is taken. Therefore, you can't be painting your toenails while driving and expect this bag to keep you safe. If you need to make a call, pull over. Texting can wait. Honor your family and the lives of those on the road around you. Focus on driving.

There's a lot of magick left to do. You don't want to leave the Pagan Party early. ;)

Do you have protection spells on your vehicle?

  1. I used to do a warding as I made my morning pre-trip when I was a trucker. My space cushion was strong enough I have felt drifting cars bound off it.

    1. VERY smart! Glad you avoided those accidents!! =S I can't imagine all the crazy things you've seen spending so many hours on the road at an elevated height. I remember being in middle school and a particular motorist evidently shared our same schedule. I'd routinely see him behind the bus in his car with a full newspaper spread out over the steering wheel! How crazy is that?!

      Thanks for stopping by and taking a moment to comment! =D

    1. You're so very welcome! If you're experiencing neck pain, you may want to consider acupuncture. Unfortunately I no longer live in a place where it's available, but when I had access it helped me significantly! Hope you get to feeling better! ♥

    1. Dragon's Blood is a resin that can be purchased at most New Age stores. I recommend the chunks, not the incense (because those can be a mixture of different herbs). If you're looking for it online, Etsy is a good place to find small quantities for sale. =D Happy casting!

    1. You're very welcome! If you're feeling particularly anxious during the trip, I find it also helps to envision the car in a protective bubble. It soothes the nerves a bit. =D Thanks for taking a moment to comment. Safe travels!!!

  6. Thank you for making this post and offering a vehicle protection sachet and spell. I used to work in a police department, processing accidents...and saw how so many accidents (over 10/day in a small township area!) are because of the driver texting or otherwise distracted! It's scary...thanks for some hope!

    1. You're very welcome! Yes, it's VERY scary how distracted people are when driving. Makes me a little angry, actually. It's not right to endanger others, especially over something that can absolutely wait. Thanks for stopping by and taking a moment to comment! =D

  8. This seems like an easy spell to do. I absolutely love it. Thank you for sharing it. I live in a big city where the drivers only care about themselves and how fast they can get where they're going. One question though, I don't have a cat to get whiskers from. I have an abundance of dog fur. Would some fur do as well as the whiskers?

    1. Absolutely. It's all about intention. So if you have a close bond with your pup and that furry pooch makes you feel safe, it will absolutely work. Even if you replaced the whiskers with a stone you found or a sea shell —something that resonates with you— the spell will manifest. Ultimately, you need to believe in the outcome wholly and completely! So yes, your dog's fur will work wonderfully. =D Happy Casting!

  11. Any suggestions for a substitute for the cat whiskers and/or wolf fur? I don't have a cat (I'm allergic) and really no way to get some wolf fur so kind of wondering on that one.

    1. Hello there!

      As I mentioned in the notes, if you don't have cat whiskers or wolf hair you can use something that resonates with you, like a feather, a seashell, or even a pretty rock you found on a hike. A tiger's eye or clear quartz gemstone are also good substitutes if you have either of those on hand. Hope that helps! Thanks for the question! =D
