How to Make a Protection Charm

A gift of protection for those of us who need it in this time of uncertainty and spiritual warfare.


As we make our way toward a historical, unprecedented US election, we simultaneously make our way toward Samhain (pronounced Sow-win), otherwise known as the Celtic New Year. It’s the time of year when nature cycles into the darkness and when we pray for strength, guidance and protection.


Now is the time to contemplate the environment we find ourselves in and to reflect upon our responsibilities - relationally, socially and ecologically. Within our current political landscape, we stand in the trenches between polarized energies of the conscious and the unconscious. Thus it is important for each of us to discern between these forces at work in our own personal lives and the world at large.

In preparation for what lies ahead we must resource ourselves, attune to our inner wisdom and invoke the presence of loving forces here to support and protect us against corruption. Below we offer a template for creating your own protection charm in a bottle. This charm is informed by a Celtic spiritual orientation, was specifically designed with the empath in mind and is charged with the purpose for Energetic Protection and Purification.


This template is here to serve as inspiration for the creation of your own protection charm. The power of your charm will be determined by the energy and quality of connection you put into its creation as well as how and from where you source the contents. We encourage you to imbue your charm with elements that have personal meaning and cultural relevance to your lineage.




Here are the details:
