The newly released Protection Spells by Arin Murphy-Hiscock addresses one of the most important areas of Magic today. Without adequate protection, Witches and other Psychic practitioners leave themselves open to unnecessary harm and chaos. This book contains over 100 different spells for defense and protection, so there is something here for just about everyone.
A large part of this book is concentrated on spells for children and young folk. There are spells here for general fears, anti-bullying, and also nightmares, things that can plague folks of any age, but are particularly troubling for youth. There are also simple ways to both ground and center yourself which can be helpful for anyone. A large part of protection magic is designed to provide comfort and security and that is what this book provides.
One segment that is particularly interesting to me is Protection Spells that revolve around magickal cleaning supplies. I have long advocated that people add charged crystals and/or ritual oils and waters to their cleaning supplies. Here the book tells us that ” Magically programming your cleaning supplies is one of the easiest ways to support the magical maintenance of your home.” The spell that follows allows you to charge whatever item you wish with an incantation, and spiritual focus.
I also really appreciate Protection Spells including workings for use while travelling. These include both a passport protection spell, and also a travel version of Florida Water. My own godson lost his passport on one of our trips to New Orleans ( always have a photocopy,) so this spell is dear to my heart and my history. And everyone knows I am a big fan of Florida Water, just look at all our posts about it here, and this recipe is a welcome addition to our travelling practices.
