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.
From: Cunningham’s Encyclopedia of Crystal, Gem & Metal Magic
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.
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.
Whenever you feel drained, hold one crystal in each hand – Quartz or Amethyst work best. In your left hand, hold the crystal so that it points inwards, and in your right hand, hold the crystal so that it points outwards. This creates an energy circuit. Close your eyes. Breathe. Let the energy flow.
You must take a white egg, and through small holes made in each end, blow forth the contents from the shell. Plug up one end with a little softened beeswax, then fill the shell, using a fine funnel, with sour red wine. Carefully seal the second hole with more wax, and in red ink write upon the surface of the shell the name of that plaguing compulsion you would be rid of.
Take this egg in secret to a place where great rocks cover the ground. Stand there and say these words:
“Hall of blood where life has fled
Walls of bone that close me round
I break thy reign, thy yolk I shed
I cast thy powers to the ground.”
Hurl the egg against a rock so that it shall burst into fragments and the contents be spilt upon the earth. Then gather up the broken bits of shell, take them home, and grind them into a powder in a mortar. This charmed dust should be kept within a small jar, a pinch of it to be placed on the tongue and swallowed whenever further treacherous temptations may appear.
You can program a crystal to help you lose weight stop smoking or overcome any negative attitudes about yourself. For example, you want to stop eating chocolate but just can’t. You know you should stop for health reasons but you don’t have the will power.
Try programming a crystal by telling it something like, “I have completely lost any desire for chocolate.” Wear the crystal around your neck or keep it in a pocket. Whenever you want chocolate, touch your crystal and feel the urge dissipate.
To get the most out of your crystal, you need to get the right crystal in the first place. Pick a crystal by attraction, by being drawn to touch it, and then hold it loosely in your left hand. Notice the impressions, colors, sounds, and feelings you pick up. No two crystals are the same. Each crystal has its own unique vibration, and each will resonate differently. It should feel alive in your hand, vibrate, or radiate. In other words, it should feel good.
Before you use your crystals cleanse it. The easiest way to clean your crystal is to hold it in the bright sunlight and order it to be completely cleansed. when, program it with your desired goal. Now, you’re ready to enjoy your crystal!
The black opal is widely known as the “Witches Stone” and is prized for its magic enhancing properties. To increase your magickal power, charge the stone with the following chant and place it on your altar.
“Opal black, of burning fire
Add the power that’s required
To make my magic hit its mark,
By light of day, or night so dark.

Cairns or piles of stones are collectors and reservoirs of power. Creating a Cairn of Power in a specific power spot, such as a crossroads, graveyard, or hilltop can give added depth to magick performed with, on, or near them. Here’s how:
Select 10 or 20 stones of approximately the same size. Larger is better – just be sure that you can safely handle them. When collecting the stones, always ask permission, and take the stone only if permission is granted. Be respectful of the place, and be sure to leave appropriate offerings, and blessings.
Before building the Cairn, get grounded and centered. If you are working with others, avoid small talk and distractions. Silence is best.
Allow the stones to speak to you, and guide you in the building of the Cairn. As you place the first stone, say aloud and with conviction:
“I place here a stone of power.”
Repeat this with the rest of your stones, gradually forming a sturdy pile of stones. The pile can have a square or triangular base, and the shape it forms will be dictated by the rocks you chose. Take your time, listen to the land, the wind, the voices in the trees. You are building a Cairn of Power – take it seriously. If you are quiet enough, and serious enough, a name will come to you.
As you place the last stone on top of the pile, say:
“This is a Cairn of Power”
Listen and wait for the naming of the Cairn.
When the name comes to you say:
“This is ____________.” (name the Cairn)
Pour a libation of water or wine, and light a small candle to activate the energies. If you have magick to perform, do it now. When you are complete, leave an offering of cornmeal, salt, flowers, herbs or whatever feels appropriate.
Each time you return, you can bring another stone, crystals, amulets, shells, statues, or other items to add to the Cairn. Over time, and as you continue to revisit the Cairn, your connection to the power will build, and eventually you will have only to think of it to receive a surge of energy.

Rise before the Sun on the morning of the Spring Equinox. Find several stones and place them on the fence posts that surround your property, visualizing yourself, your home and your life filled with luck.
The ancients regarded turquoise as a powerful magickal aid to ward off misfortune, illness, and the evil eye. You can use turquoise to make your own amulet for protection.
To begin, during the waxing Moon take a piece of blue turquoise or an item of blue turquoise jewelry and hold it in your hand for a moment. In your mind’s eye, picture a blue light surrounding you. Hold the stone to your heart, and breathe on it to charge it with your power, saying:
Stone of blue, surround me with protective energy.
I am protected by your soothing blue light.
Carry your turquoise with you or wear it as often as you can. Handle it frequently to keep the spell active.
