The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Fire of Protection

Fire has always been regarded as the great purifier. An unparalleled force of protection, sustenance and destruction. Fire is a symbol of pure energy. People are drawn to its light and heat because it warms them, and dispels darkness. 

The ancients would pass their livestock through the Beltane fire to create an aura of protection around them, and ensure their survival through the year. The act of burning old habits and afflictions in a fire is said to release them from your life. Fire transmutes, releases and renews. It softens and melts, making a malleable substance that can be shaped to your liking.

The hearth of a home has been regarded as a sacred place, the heart of the house, the altar. A spell of protection is to burn within the fire of your home or in a bomb fire on your property, different sprigs of herbs… such as…

Rosemary, lavender, juniper branches, myrtle, or bay. 

Toss bundles of each of the herbs listed into the flames of a fire. let its energy cleanse you. Let it feed your spirit, and free you from negativity. Let the fire lull you into a trance, and as you go deeper into the flames, whisper the burdens that lay heavy on your heart. 

You can even write on slips of fresh paper the things that you want to release from your life, and then toss them into the flames.
