Spell Type: Protection
- 5 Blackthorn spikes
- a candle
- white thread/twine (optional)
- protective pouch (optional)
Before doing a protection spell with Blackthorn, take time to sit with your thorns in a meditation. Hold them, feel them (carefully!) and meditate on the vibration and energy they hold. Clarity of intention is critical when using these as well as really developing an intimate relationship with your magickal tools. These thorns hold a edge that is at once injurious and protective. Understanding that edge and how you direct the energy is important to the success of the spell.
Respect is critical to all magickal relationships.
Blackthorn Thorn Protection Spell:
Set up your altar as you would.
A candle for purification and fire is important at the center.
Call in the four quarters and set the intention for clarity and protection, directing it to the thorns for a potent charge.
Take as much time as necessary to sit with your thorns. Hold them in the palm of your hand. Breathe slowly and allow them to speak to you as they choose.
When you are ready, ask them for their service:
With Blackthorn spikes,
I draw the bound.
All malice and bane,
I thus confound
(repeat 3 times, or in multiples of 3 as you feel called)
You can complete the spell in any of the following ways:
1. Place a thorn in each of the 4 corners of your home or room you will be working in, with the 5th thorn over the doorway of home or room as a way to keep your home space protected.
2. Write on a piece of paper the very specifics you want protection from, wrap the thorns in that paper and bury in the ground. Spell is left there.
3. Bind the thorns in white thread while you recite the charge and carry them with you in a protected pouch for constant protection.
