Witches are Sensitives. Unless we are consciously prepared to block people's energy, we automatically pick up the vibration of our surroundings. Sadly, many people in this world carry negativity, hatred, and anxiety.
After spending time with groups of people (such as in concerts, shopping malls or at clubs) do you feel physically ill? Do you feel it takes time to energetically wash away the feeling? After having to be out in social situations for any length of time, do you feel the need to be alone for several days?
These are all symptoms of a sensitive (and often damaged) energetic barrier. As a result, we need to consciously develop and strengthen our energetic barrier and inner sacred power. And to be honest with you, this will likely be a lifelong practice in one way or another. Therefore, if possible, I recommend this ritual to be performed after every Dark Moon.
As we grow and evolve, we may become less sensitive to some stimulants (angst of big cities, bitter people, etc.) and more susceptible to others. This poses a challenge, as your energetic barrier must keep up with your evolvement and environment. Otherwise, you will feel drained and helpless as you absorb the energies of your surroundings
When feeling overwhelmed by the negative energies of others, perform this Spiritual Protection Ritual to create and strengthen your energetic barrier. With the help of the Old World ritual herbs and resins of the Tiger's Eye Ritual Blend, this ritual will protect you from unpleasant external energies and influences. Especially useful before stepping into an uncomfortable or potentially toxic situation. Wards against energetic vampires -- those who suck the energy out of you or love to see people be miserable.
Best Time to Perform:
This Energetic Barrier Spiritual Protection Ritual is best performed the morning after the Dark Moon, preferably after performing a Banishing Ritual the night before.

Spiritual Protection Ritual Instructions:
Find a quiet space and time where you will not be disturbed. Ideally, this particular ritual should be performed near a cracked open window for the smudge smoke to quickly escape. As with all spellwork, your altar surface must be fireproof. A stone or thick metal tray works well.
Take a deep breath and allow your body and your mind to relax.
Breathe out stress, breathe in joy.
Breathe out worry, breathe in comfort.
Breathe out tension, breathe in serenity.
Step 1: Begin visualizing an egg of white light enveloping you. Sit within this white light all around your body...under your feet, over your head, covering both arms. Breathe.
Step 2: Pick up the 4 Old World Ritual Candles and roll them between the palms of your hands, while visualizing the egg of white light turning a beautiful shade of dark purple. You will notice the thickness of this egg will become thicker and will turn into a sturdy shield. At this stage, the energetic shield forming all around you will become nearly palpable to all the senses.
Step 3: Dust about 1/2 teaspoon he Tiger's Eye Ritual Blend over the Old World Ritual Candles. Some of the blend will fall on to your ritual surface.
Step 4: Gather the 4 herb dusted Old World Ritual Candles in your hand, make sure they are lined up evenly. While holding the bottom of the candles, begin to gently twist start from the top. The motion is similar to wringing out wet laundry. Fists twisting in opposite directions. The bottoms (or legs) of the candles should be untwisted for the last one inch of the candles. Spread each of the candle legs to 4 opposing sides, forming a self-contained base.
This action does two things:
1) It acts as a self-contained candle holder.
2) It activates an energetic center which allows the protection to distribute through the four cardinal directions (North, South, East, West), thus surrounding you. This is a crucial part of the ritual. Although the candle legs and the magnetic directions do not need to line up, they must all be pointing in different directions.
Step 5: Now light the candles and continue visualizing your energetic barrier strengthening. See it becoming iron-strong, repelling anything negative that dare come in its direction.
Step 6: While the candle burns (about 20-30 minutes), light the Palo Santo from the flame of the candles. While sitting in front of the candles, cover your entire body with the purifying Palo Santo smoke. Make sure to smudge under your feet, behind your neck and about 6 inches over the crown of you head.
Step 7: For your own sake, never leave any burning candles unattended. The Old World Ritual Candles will extinguish themselves (usually the flame is extinguished its own puddle of wax) and you will be left with a small puddle of wax.
This small amount of wax will need to be disposed of by burying it at the base of a large, healthy tree. This tree can be on your property, at a nearby park or even at a forest. For more information about ritual remnants, visit 15 Methods of Proper Ritual Remnant Disposal.
How Long Until You See the Results of this Spell?
You will notice you will have especially vivid dreams the night of the spell. You may even experience lucid dreams, where you have control over what is happening. Pay close attention to the synchronicities that begin happening around you over the next 28 days. Before entering a difficult situation or place, visualize the protective barrier around your physical body. You will immediately notice energies bouncing off your physical and spiritual body. If you choose to bury the spell remnants on your property, you will notice the area will become particularly peaceful.
