Protection From Beyond

LuAnneB081108

Romany spiritual traditions combine a dislike of disturbing the dead with a desire for the protective capacities cemetery dirt offers. Although one might not want to disturb one’s own ancestors or someone one knows, there’s no actual fear of the cemetery, thus an anonymous, unknown grave is chosen.

This spell harnesses abstract, protective qualities inherent in graveyard dirt to protect a child embarking on a long journey. Here’s how:

The parent takes a little dirt from any grave, balancing it on the back of the left hand. When the departing child isn’t looking, this dirt is tossed over his or her head to provide protection.
