The Dark Mother Hel is a powerful deity. Often she works with her special animals, the wolves. If you feel that you have been under psychic attacks, bombarded with negative thoughts, or in physical danger, call upon the goddess Hel and her wolves.

Cast circle as usual, but moving counter-clockwise (widdershins), from the East. When you are finished, stand before the altar with your arms raised and say:

Dark Mother, let your power flow through
the body of your daughter/son and out again
to repel and destroy all negative thoughts
and deeds that are directed against me.

Stand in silence as you draw down the power. Then go to the East, raise your sword (dagger) in greeting and say:

Hail, Dawn-Treader, great wolf of the East,
whose yellow eyes see all in the Element of Air!
I do summon you here to protect and defend me.

Move to the North; say:

Hail, Ice-Leaper, great wolf of the North,
whose green eyes see all in the Element of Earth!
I do summon you here to protect and defend me.

spacer gif

Go to the West; say:

Hail, Night-Stalker, great wolf of the West,
whose blue eyes see all in the Element of Water!
I do summon you here to protect and defend me.

Finish by going to the South. Say:

Hail, Sun-Chaser, great wolf of the South,
whose red eyes see all in the Element of Fire!
I do summon you here to protect and defend me.

Move counterclockwise back around until you once again stand before the altar. Say:

Great Dark Mother, I call upon you
to build up this protection.
To send back all the evil
that has been sent against me.

spacer gif

Raise you sword high; Say:

Dark Mother, Queen of the Night,
there are those who stand against me.
Let their efforts fail.
Let them go down into darkness.
Let them stand in the courts of Hel.
May their efforts always be lost in the darkness
with no light to guide them.
I am your child!
Protect me, Dark Mother.

Rest the sword point down at your feet. Say:

Dark Mother, help me reach my goals,
live my life to the fullest,
walk a path of Light and balance.
Sweep away all barriers built by those who want me to fail.
Crush the evil sent against me!
Sweep its evil remains back into the
bodies and brains who sent it!
The evil is Dead!
The attackers taste their just rewards!
Their mouths are full of ashes,
their thoughts of nightmares,
their lives of unfulfillment!
I stand under the sword and hand of the Goddess!
So mote it be!

As you draw a pentagram on the floor between your feet with the sword. Say:

It is done!

spacer gif

Lay aside the sword. Say:

Your hands protect me, from Dark Moon to Dark Moon
Your sword covers me, from Dark Moon to Dark Moon
The wolves guard me, from Dark Moon to Dark Moon
All love and honor to the Dark Mother.

This is the time for any spellworking and to finish any other ritual matters. Then take the sword and go to the East. Raise it in greeting, and say:

Farewell, Dawn-Treader!
My thanks for your protection and defense.
Depart in peace. Blessed be.

Move to the North; say:

Farewell, Ice-Leaper!
My thanks for your protection and defense.
Depart in peace. Blessed be.

Move to the West; say:

Farewell, Night-Stalker!
My thanks for your protection and defense.
Depart in peace. Blessed be.

spacer gif

Finish by going to the South; say:

Farewell, Sun-Chaser!
My thanks for your protection and defense.
Depart in peace. Blessed be.

spacer gif

Stand before the altar again, with arms raised; say:

My thanks to the Goddess
And to all who have helped here tonight.
Depart in peace. Blessed be.

Close the circle, remembering to go clockwise.
