You will need:
- 12 small stones
- A white or black candle
- A compass
At dawn, light the candle and place it on a flat surface, preferably a tabletop. Lay the stones on the tabletop, but not too close to the candle. Next, say the following:
Earth’s foundation, cold and strong,
In existence for so long,
Of your might I ask a deed,
For protection that I need.
Next, begin forming a circle around the candle with the stones. Keep the circle loose at first (the stones should not be touching each other), then begin moving the stones closer to the candle, forming a tighter circle around it, until at last, the stones are all touching each other and are in a tight circle around the candle.
Next, use the compass to determine the direction of North. Once you have determined North, remove the northernmost stone from the circle. Place the stone in an inconspicuous, northern spot in the room or in your home. This will begin your field of protection.
Next, going in a counter-clockwise order, take the next stone from the circle and place it in a position in your room or in your home, relative to its position in the circle. Continue doing this with the stones, using the compass to determine their relative positions, until all the stones have been distributed throughout your room/home and your field of protection has been established. If it helps, visualize a protective field around your home/room, with the stones as anchor points.
Once the stones have all been distributed and placed in inconspicuous places, extinguish the candle. Leave the stones in the positions you placed them. If you must move one, or if it accidentally gets moved after the candle was extinguished, you must then perform this spell again to reestablish the field of protection.
Don’t have a compass? Make one at home.
