Door Protection Spell Bags

If you haven't heard, I recently moved into a new home at the beginning of the year. One of the first things I did, after unpacking the tea kettle and a bucket of Dorian Grey, was to secure the home with Door Protection Spell Bags after a good smudging and blessing.

I'm fiercely protective of my home, which is something that stems from my childhood. When you've lived in a volatile house with a step-parent that gives a whole new meaning to "human garbage," you tend to get a bit defensive. a little dark there. Puppies! Butterflies! Fields of daisies!

Everybody in a good place again? Good!

As trite as it may be, your home should be a refuge to all the gunk of the outside world. It should be a sanctuary where you kick off your shoes, take off your bra umm...wear sweatpants, and feel completely at peace and safe. So whenever I move into a new house I make sure to clean out the old energy, imbue some good vibes, and protect my new haven. 

If you were to walk through my home, preferably during the day and without a ski mask, you'll notice little charm bags hanging from the door handles. As the years pass, the herbs settle and the bags get a little more worn, but I leave them be, knowing they were set in place with good intentions and the power of the Goddess and God. I use a fresh set for every house, disposing of the old in a respectful manner. 

Now before we begin, I'll point out that I have a small fixation with pouches and sachets. I just think they're neat.  Plus, you can usually purchase a bundle for a good price. Even the earth-friendly muslin bags are affordable. It's common for jewelry or cosmetic sellers to use these bags for their products, so I tend to have a few on hand from online purchases. Yay for recycling!

Of course, you can always reuse scrap fabric and make your own pouches! What nature-lover doesn't appreciate a good re-purpose?! ;) I especially enjoy using scrap fabric pouches if it's a spell that's out of sight, like under a car seat. No sewing skills required! Simply bunch up the fabric around your herbs and tie it with a ribbon. Easy-peasy. 

Please remember, magick cannot work unless we give it a pathway. Therefore, you can't leave the doors open, the windows unlocked, and a trail of Oreos to your front door and expect no one to enter. Take precautions, but know the Universe is working in your favor!

Now on to casting!

What You'll Need:

A hefty pinch of each dried herb:

Rosemary (I left mine on the branch)
Sage (Save any loose bits that fall out of smudge sticks!)
Rose petals 
A special rock* or gemstone (Tiger's eye is suitable)
A pouch or swatch of fabric 

*Note: I use red rocks gathered from Sedona, AZ. You can use whatever resonates with you. If you don't already, collect any stones that stand out to you for later spell use!
** Dill will usually fall out of the mesh bags. I recommend including this only if you're using muslin pouches. You can also pin a fresh sprig of dill above your door for protection! (It will dry over time.)

How to Cast:

While concentrating on feelings of peace and security, add the herbs and stone to the sachet in any order. 

When done, draw the pouch closed or tie with a ribbon. Red, blue, or purple are great for protection, but you can use whatever you have on hand.

Standing before the door to which you will affix your spell bag, hold the bag in your palms and imagine roots growing out of your feet, through the flooring, and burying themselves deep in the earth. Now envision a golden light spreading up through those roots, into your body, out your palms, and infusing the spell bag. 

When you feel the bag is nice and charged, tie the spell to the inside door handle with three knots. 

As you tie each knot, say the following:

This home is safe. (first knot)
This home is protected. (second knot)
This home is secure. (third knot)

Turn your palms toward the bag and envision a protective barrier over your entire home, as if your home were built inside a dome. Then say:

With the energy of the earth,
This home is safe.
This home is protected.
This home is secure.
So Mote it Be!

Now doesn't that feel all warm and cozy? Bear in mind you just tapped into the Earth's energy, so either filter your thoughts (always a good practice), or ensure that you don't unintentionally manifest something unbecoming by stating positive intentions. You can do so by saying:

The power of the Earth flows through me for the good of all Its creatures. Only good shall manifest from this sacred energy.

This way if you get riled up by The Bachelor, you don't have to worry about accidentally manifesting a broken stiletto. =D

What's your favorite way to protect your home? Have you ever performed a house blessing for a friend?
