A little exercise in spell writing, using an obsidian arrow head the kids demanded from the science museum and promptly forgot about…
Obsidian Protection Amulet
You will need:
- Black obsidian arrowhead or stone
- Black or white candle
- Cup of water
- Incense (enough for the duration of the working)
Create your sacred space in the usual way. Light your incense and candle, invoking any deity or energy you wish to aid you in your task, clearly stating your purpose, such as;
“I call upon this crystal to guard and protect me for all malignant influences; be they of magic or ill-intent.”
Consecrate your water and salt using your finger saying;
“Water/Salt, I purify and consecrate you, removing all impurities and inequities from your being so only good may remain. I dedicate you as a tool of purification and protection so that you may aid me in my work”.
Combine Water and Salt and submerge the obsidian into the salt water and say;
“By Earth and Water, I purify you that you may serve me in (purpose)”
Hold the stone in your dominant hand. Close your eyes and begin to draw energy from the ground up through your body. Visualise / feel the energy rising up through your body with each breath in until it fills your body head to toe. Pass it into the arrowhead, holding the purpose of your work clearly in your mind. See the stone take on this energy in the form of an inner glow.
Once you feel that the stone has been fully empowered pass the obsidian through the smoke and say;
“By Air and Fire, I enliven you that you may serve me in (purpose)”
Thank any deity / energy which you may have invoked for aiding you in this purpose.
Deconstruct your sacred space in the usual way leaving your incense and candle to burn down safely.
As this is an amulet it is necessary to perform this spell on a regular basis such as every full moon.
If you do not have an obsidian arrow which can easily be turned into a necklace and/or a pendant then you will also need some form of amulet bag to allow you to wear it around your neck.
If you have four such arrowheads perform a slightly adapted version of this working. Rather than wear them place the arrowheads at the four corners of your property, either pointing outwards or thrust into the ground if possible.
