Dear Friends,

Your home is your castle and just like a Medieval castle, it requires protection. Your home is full of the energy of it’s previous residents, and you are adding energy to it each and every day. The
energy that you have in your home is important. If you are moving into a new home or need to protect your home energetically, you can use the rituals in this post to help you do just that. You’ll do one after another, since they work in tandem. Make sure that you have enough time to do them, since they are rather labor intensive.

For this ritual, you’ll need a white candle, two small bowls for water and salt, a large bowl of water, your censer and an incense holder. You need to do this ritual on the New Moon. Start your ritual by casting your circle as you normally would. Meditate for a few moments on the task ahead, and then invoke the God and Goddess. Ask for their help in the work that you’ll be doing.

Light your white candle in the candle holder, and then light your incense. Add salt to your water, and then take your water bowl and raise it up to the North. Say the following:

In the name of the Goddess and God, I banish with Water and Earth

Sprinkle water around the perimeter of your circle and then raise your incense to the North, and then say the following:

In the name of the Goddess and God, I banish with Fire and Air

Take the incense and walk around the perimeter of the room just as you did with the water.

Light the candle and then cast a pentacle toward the North. Do this by by starting in the upper right hand corner and tracing a pentacle in the air. As you do this, say

With this Sign I banish ye, foul shades of the North!
Let this home be freed of negative influences.

Go around the perimeter of the room and cast a pentacle at each quarter. Repeat the phrase at each point, obviously replacing the word “North” in the statement. After you do this in each corner, return to the center of the room and take your bowl of pure water.

With your hands, draw in any negative vibrations or energy that you sense in the room. Cast them into the water by flicking your fingers at the space and then in the water. Continue to do this until you feel like you’ve cleared the space completely. Make sure to avoid touching the water, since it is becoming full of the energy that you are getting rid of.

Move the water, salt, incense, candle and bowl of water into each room of your home. Repeat the same ritual in each room taking care not to touch or spill the water. Make sure to banish from closets, bathrooms and pantries. Anywhere there is a door, you should complete this spell.

When you’re done, you need to empty the large bowl of water with the negative energy into running water. You can use the toilet or the sink, just make sure not the spill the water anywhere else. Wash the bowl with cold water and then scrub it out with consecrated salt.

After you’re done banishing, you need to seal your home to protect it from any negative influences. This sealing ritual will protect your home magickally and keep you secure. You’ll use the same items that you did in the first ritual (salt, water, incense and candle). You should have saved the wax drippings from your candle, the ashes from your incense, the salt and the consecrated water. Mix all of them together into a paste.

Dip your first finger into the paste and draw a pentacle on the inside of each door that leads outside. Make sure to do this on the windows as well. You can make two pentacles at each opening if you want, one on the sill and the other on the door or window itself. As you are drawing these pentacles, make sure to concentrate on protection and only the good coming into your home. Know that all of the energy that was put into the your home in the past, good or bad, is now gone. You’ll be able to fill it with positive helpful energy in the future.

This is an intense ritual so you shouldn’t have to do it more than once. If you want to refresh your home every once in a while, you can do this ritual once per year. The best time of year to do this is during the spring. Think of it as magickal “spring” cleaning, and your house will always be protected. Each time you do this ritual, the effect of it will be increased and multiplied.

Brightest Blessings,

    :???:How would you go about a banishing ritual to clean the outside grounds of your home. We live in the woods and mountains and stay in a tent most of this Spring and Summer. We are building on our land 2 houses.
