i would appreciate so much any protection spells or methods anyone here might offer that will keep my son out of harm's way.

i feel that he's very vulnerable right now, and that he needs something metaphysical to surround him and keep him safe.....something strong and enduring.

i'm really not in the way of imagining my own currently, so if anyone knows anything tried and true.....i'd be very grateful.

thank you.

Write on a piece of paper the following: "If anyone wishes harm to (son's name), it will be returned to them." Light a white candle and some incense. Place a picture of your son near the candle. Read the statement aloud while visualizing your son surrounded by White Light. Let the candle burn for a full hour, and then burn the paper. Extinguish the candle. Dispose of the paper ashes. Blow the incense ashes to the wind.

talaith
I don't know what kinds of things you have at your disposal, so I'm going to give you a few spell options. These are taken directly from "Earth, Air, Fire & Water" by Scott Cunningham. You'll note that these spells are written from a perspective where the caster is protecting him/herself. I don't see any reason why you couldn't alter them to fit your needs for your son. Just change the words to include references to your son instead of to yourself, and perhaps keep a picture on your altar or sacred space so that it is easier to visualize. If I may be so bold, you may even want to alter them to include you both, or perhaps even the both of you and your pup.


A SPELL OF PROTECTION
Sit or stand before any fire. Look into the flames (or flame, if using a candle). Visualize the fire bathing you with glowing, protective light. The fire creates a flaming shimmering sphere around you. If you wish, say the following or similar words:

Craft the spell
In the fire;
Craft it well;
Weave it higher.
Weave it now
Of shining flame;
None shall come
To hurt or maim.
None shall pass
This fiery wall;
None shall pass
No, none at all.

Repeat this simple yet effective ritual every day when in need.


A WATER SPELL OF PROTECTION
Unless we live in a major metropolis, we don't often truly need magical protection. Still there may come a time in which it's necessary. This dramatic ritual arouses protective energies within its maker.
For this ritual you'll need four black (yes, black) taper candles, a bowl of water, salt, and a paper bag. If you can't find black candles, use white. (*Black candles can be hard to find, but most of the mail-order suppliers listed in Appendix Two carry them.)
Now, to the ritual itself. Place the bowl of water, a small vessel of salt (you'll need no more than four pinches of it) and the four black candles on your place of magic. Have also there some matches (boxed matches are best) and a paper bag.
Sit or stand before the assembled items. Close your eyes and visualize a fortress of protection surrounding you. If you feel the need to see a magical being or creature defending you, fine. Or you may wish to imagine yourself with a flaming sword, fighting off all attackers. Raging Amazons may endlessly circle and protect you. The possibilities are endless, but your visualization should be clear and concise. See that you're protected. Know that you're protected.
Light a match. Light one black candle. Hold the candle close to you and say:

You are nothing!

Move it farther away and say:

You are fading!

Move it still father, at arm's reach, and say:

You are banished!

Push the lit end of the candle into the water. Watch its flame sputter and go out. Know that the water also extinguishes all energy that is meant to harm you.
Break the spent candle between your hands (or use a hammer) and place it into the paper bag. Add a pinch of salt to the water to purify it.
Repeat the entire spell three more times, once with each candle: saying the words; moving the candle farther from; plunging the lit end into the water; breaking and disposing of the candle; adding the salt to the water.
When you've finished, say these or similar words;

Evil that rides the sky;
Chill winds that blow;
Darkened charms that arise
From far below:
Broken now, fading fast,
You will not thrive.
For with this spell I've cast
You can't survive!

Wash your hands. Remove the black candles (in the bag) from your property. Pour the briny water down the drain and wash the bowl well.
It is done.
(This spell is designed to transform negative energies into positive energy, not to hurt anyone.)


THE MIRROR FORTRESS
Items needed:
One square mirror at least eight inches square.
One round ceramic plate at least ten inches in diameter.
Water.
One small white votie candle (and clear-glass holder).
Several small mirrors of various shapes and sizes.
Place the larger mirror onto the round ceramic plate. The edges of the mirror shouldn't overhang the plate itself. If they do, use a smaller mirror or a larger plate (or even, if nothing else is available, a bowl).
Next, cover the mirror with water, up to the rim of the plate. The plate should be deep enough so that the water will completely cover the mirror.
Charge the white votive cnadle by holding it between your palms, visualizing yourself surrounded by a fiery mirror of protective energies, and by saying:

I am surrounded by brilliant white light.
I am protected and surrounded by brilliant white light.
I am guarded, protected, and surrounded by brilliant white light.

Place the votie candle in its holder and set them both on top of the large square mirror in the plate. Light the votive candle.
Then, propping them up as best you can, place the other, smaller mirrors in a circle around the candle, plate, and larger mirror. At least some of the mirrors must reflect the light of the candle.
When all is ready, hold your hands palms downward over the items you've assembled and say these or similar words:

Fire and water; mirror's light:
Lend me all protection!
Moon-glass and water; candle bright:
Guard me with reflection!
Reflect the ill; reflect the bane;
Reflect the danger that grows near;
Reflect all that would cause me pain;
Protect me in this fortress here!

Visualize yourself within the scene you've created, warmed by the candle's flame; reflected again and again in the mirrors, guarded, protected, safe, and at peace.
Let the candle burn for at least fifteen minutes. Pinch or snuff out the flame. Pour the water into a bottle to use again and put all items carefully out of sight until you need to create your mirror fortress once again.


***


*I don't know if you need a list of suppliers, but looking on-line should prove to be effective if you can wait that long to perform your spell(s). If not, use what you have, and your desire and need will outweigh minor technicalities like tools, etc. White does work for any candle color recommended if you don't have them available because it is a color inclusive to all other colors. If you do wish to order supplies, I can recommend Azure-Green as a reputable supplier based on my personal experiences with them.


******


Also, I don't know how you feel about all things Christian, but here is an passage from the Bible that has been used for protective energies as well.

(Psalm 93)
"The Lord doth reign, and cloth'd is he
with majesty most bright;
His works do shew him cloth'd to be,
and girt about with might.
The world is also stabilished,
that it cannot depart.
Thy throne is fix'd of old, and thou
from everlasting art.
The floods, O Lord, have lifted up,
they lifted up their voice;
The floods have lifted up their waves,
and made a mighty noise.
But yet the Lord, that is on high,
is more of might by far
Than noise of many waters is,
or great sea-billows are.
Thy testimonies ev'ry one
in faithfulness excel;
And holiness for ever, Lord,
thine house becometh well."


I have read/heard numerous times that the passages read clearer if you change the word "Lord" to Love or to Law. Hope no one's offended by that, but I've done it myself a few times and been startled at the revelations.

Blessed be, talaith, and please keep us informed of you and your family's well-being.

I really liked your spell, too, Randall. My mom taught me a spell exactly like that not too long ago. I was actually surprised to see it written down because no one else I know is familiar with it. Very cool!

You're very welcome, talaith. You also have my thoughts and blessings with you. Stay positive!

From a metaphysical view, please envision your son protected and well. Banish any negative thoughts and your positivity will increase his safety. KNOW that he is safe, and so shall it be.
