Crocodiles, like snakes, are simultaneously fearsome, dangerous creatures and potent symbols of spiritual and psychic protection. Pregnant Isis, after all, hid in the crocodile infested swamps of the Nile Delta. It was the safest spot she knew.
In ancient days, the papyrus plant, which once lined the Nile, was a hieroglyphic emblem for Lower Egypt, especially that Nile Delta swampland. It also served as a protective emblem from crocodiles, lending new meaning to Moses’ cradle on the Nile, formed from papyrus. This symbol (shown below) can be used in a variety of ways to create a protective talisman.
- Draw the hieroglyph on parchment paper and carry it.
- For intensive protection, draw the hieroglyph onto the body with henna, or if danger is constant, consider a tattoo.
- Carry a photograph of living papyrus plants as a talisman or post it in a prominent location.
The Egyptian Book of the Dead suggests carrying the plant sweet inula to ward off crocodiles both living ones and those that haunt the spirit realm.
- Wear it in a charm bag to protect against actual visitations.
- Sleep with the herb in a dream pillow or beneath your pillow if unfriendly crocodiles are infesting your dreams.
From Burma we have this tidbit:
- Carry iron pyrites as a protective charm against crocodiles.
Crocodiles shed their teeth, continually growing new ones. Naturally shed teeth have a prophylactic effect: string them and wear on necklaces and anklets to prevent attack. Alternatively, carry the teeth in a medicine bag.
To make a crocodile charm bag, place a piece of gold pyrite into a drawstring bag together with crocodile teeth and/or an image of a crocodile. Carry for protection.

Go to a moving brook or stream. While standing in the water and facing downstream, remove five small pebbles from the stream bed. As you do this, visualize your need for protection.
As your hand closes over the pebbles, see them beaming out protective energies. Just as the pebbles are hard and have weathered for eons, so too will they strengthen your protective shield.
Now carry them at all times for protection. If you wish, place them in a small pouch or a fold of cloth, or incorporate them into some form of jewelry.

I do not vouch for this spell, but maybe, if you want it badly enough, and if the incantation is said with enough power and comviction… ??
While touching water on a full moon or during a solar eclipse say the following:
Mermaid now let it be.
Mermaid when wet so mote it be.
Human when dry so shall it be.
On land I walk.
In the sea I swim with a long_______(tail color) tail.
And by the power of 3x3x3.
In sea I swim.
When dry I walk.
So mote it be.
So mote it be.
Pass a coin or bill through smoke of burning sage to clear it of all negative associations. Visualize a world where money is available to everyone. Imagine that money will be there when you need it. Take the coin or bill and place it on your altar or other personal space. Surround it with a circle of stones and crystals, and imagine this as a protective barrier to keep the funds safe. Sprinkle dried basil over the circle and chant:
There is no need that can’t be met,
I have the means to pay all debts.
The funds will come, and bring no harm.
In love and trust, I bless this charm.
After one entire moon cycle, put the coin or bill away in a safe place.
This spell is a form of magic which can be used for just about anything. Here’s how to do it:
Sit in a comfortable position with your legs crossed and your arms extended outward. Your receptive hand (the hand you do not write with) should be wide open, palm facing upward. Your projective hand (the hand you do write with) should be in a fist.
Close your eyes and imagine your goal.
Now visualize a bright red fire surrounding your receptive (open ) hand, feel the “warmth”: of the energy. Imagine it flowing up your arm and through your body into your projective hand (the closed hand). Continue letting energy flow from the red energy “flame”.
Once the impulse hits you, and you feel the time is right, thrust both arms to the right (or left if you are left handed) opening up your projective hand as you do so. This motion should be similar to “throwing” the energy towards your goal. As you do this, say in a commanding voice what will happen as a result of the energy release. (for example, if you used it to get a raise in payment at work, you could say “I will get a raise!“)
Results, if successfully performed, will be almost immediate. With practice, this can work very well.
Every home can benefit from protection. This spell employs one of nature’s sturdiest objects, a stone. Choose a plain rock at least as big as your fist. Set it on your altar between a bowl of salt and a bowl of water. Behind these, light a black candle.
Sprinkle the stone with salt, saying:
“I consecrate this stone with the purifying power of salt.”
Sprinkle it with water, saying:
“I consecrate this stone with the cleansing power of water.”
Pass it over the flame, saying:
“I consecrate this stone with the attraction of flame to moth.”
Finally, trace the image of an eye on the stone with your finger, and say:
To watch and guard around my home,
I invoke the strength of stone.
All evil thoughts be drawn within:
Strike here and leave me alone!
Blow out the candle; empty the salt and water outside. Keep the rock near your door. Once a month, when the moon is new, bring the stone doors. With an attitude of gratitude, lovingly wash the stone in warm soapy water to cleanse it, rinse it in warm salt water to purify it, and then with your finger retrace the eye on the stone and repeat the invocation. Return the stone to it’s place by the door.
Take a horse shoe and put it around a red candle. Put the candle in a darkened room in the middle of a table. Write what it is you want on a piece of paper with a quill pen dipped in black ink. Chant the following as you write:
What I want I write here
Please take my dream and bring it near
What I want Is what I should get
Let all my dreams now be met.
Now take the paper and fold it in a square of four creases. Hold it over the candle with a pair of tweezers and let it burn. Picture yourself with your wish fulfilled. As you burn the paper send waves of love at the image you conjure of yourself.
Hematite is the all-purpose grounding (energy-balancing) stone, not to mention a beautiful ornament. Tell all your troubles to the rock, then put it in the ground overnight, so that the negative energy will soak into the Earth and be neutralized.
You can then retrieve it, wipe it clean, and reuse it.
In many cultures, it is considered bad luck to compliment a baby or to remark about a child’s beauty as bad fairies might take notice. Flattery and envy attracts the evil eye, so wise mothers and crones will speak in reverse, ironically commenting: “How ugly that child is!” Or: “I’m sorry, Mrs. Duffy. Your baby is hideous!”
If a stranger has the bad manners to offer a compliment, or a fixed adoring gaze on a babe, the mother can deflect it by asking the person to spit on the child. Returning home, mothers can also perform a simple charm to protect her family by spitting on the children upon entering the house. If she forgets, the grandmother can do it.
Pure Clove Bud Essential Oil has a strong protective influence, and the “eye” is an ancient symbol of protection that has been used for centuries to protect boats, horses, wagons and carts, homes, and people. Put the two together and you have a powerful protective spell.
Here’s how to do it:
- To protect your car:
With a finger dipped in the clove bud essential oil, draw an eye on your front bumper, your rear bumper, and on each door of your car. As you do this, visualize the eye shimmering with a golden light.
- To protect your home:
Draw the symbol on the front of every entry door to your home, including the garage door (if you have one). The symbol can be painted on your front gate. Simply add a few drops of clove essential oil to the paint that you use.
This spell can be refreshed and redrawn at any time.
