To Stop Harm From Coming
You need 1 brown or maroon candle
2 blue candles
2 white candles
1 black candle
athame (or other ritual knife)
sage for smudging (optional)
Your brown or maroon candle should be towards the back of the altar, but close to the middle. your black candle should be immediately in front of it (in the center of the altar), your blue candles on the sides of the black candle (one on each side next to it, but about 3 to 6 inches spread apart), and your white candles should be directly in front of your blue candles (also about 3 to 6 inches in front of them). So you have your basic star pattern.
Cast your circle. Light the candles
Now you have cast the circle, place the blade of your athame into the fire of the black candle and chant:
"Hail to the gods and the goddesses of the earth, Please help stop physical harm from coming to (name).
I Thank thee."
Do this to the black, then the maroon or brown, then the left blue, left white, right white, then right blue. THEN, hold your athame straight up and say it again. As if you were pointing at the sky.
Now, do the whole chant again just like before, but replace "physical with emotional,then with mental, and so on...Then point your tool in front of you, say "blessed be", point to the left, behind you (turn around), and to the right, then point it up.
You are done
