Magical Self Defense

In my interpretation of the Rede, ‘do what you will, if it harm none’ is an ethic that discusses personal intention.  It’s not acceptable to intentionally hurt someone, but conflict does occur.  Personalities don’t click, fates clash, and even some situations, people, and  reactions downright suck.  Bottom line, shit happens.

For times when harm comes your way (intentional and otherwise), defensive magic is appropriate. In most cases this should never intentionally hurt anyone.  It is simply a form of protection.  Here are several methods to practice.

  • Witch’s Bottle: These can be made for many different purposes.  One type works as a filter, letting good energy through and repelling bad intentions back to the originator. Ingredients include herbs, salt, sparkly objects (crystals, broken glass, etc.), pointy objects (needles, pins, and nails), and liquid (wine, apple cider vinegar, urine, menstrual blood, semen, etc.).  It’s great for home protection.
  • Shielding: A few years ago I wrote about shielding and academics, but it is also a great way to protect yourself when you’re out and about.
  • Evil Eyes: Both the Turkish talismen and the craft project are great for homes and cars.
  • Spell Bags: Throw them in your purse or the glove compartment of your car.  Obsidian, jet, rosemary, small figures of spirit animals, and a vial of salt are examples of possible ingredients.
  • Self Defense Classes: Like always, mundane world follow up is important.  Having a strategy under your belt to deal with threatening situations will provide piece of mine.

  1. Thank you very much for following the blog, I really look forward to reading your posts and happy new year 2014. Gede Prama 🙂

  2. Excellent article! We’re pleased to see you included so many ‘Folk Magic’ techniques i. e. nails, glass, urine, etc. They are often ignored in favour of more astro-mental methods involving visualisation. A physical object, created, energised and left to do it’s work can be extremely effective and the actual constructing of such an item has a vital psychological role in itself. Happy New Year to you…..from SRTB.
