The circle is a continuous, unbroken figure. It signifies unity, completion, infinity and cycles. By nature the circle is a boundary that has no opening, making the interior a space that is untouchable. For this reason the circle is a sacred protective sigil.
Creating a circular boundary is an ancient form of spiritual protection. The space within the circle becomes consecrated ground. The circle itself becomes a barrier keeping all unwelcomed things at bay.
A protective circle can be placed around buildings, objects and people. Anything stationary can be easily placed in a circle.
A circle of salt is one of the most common, and powerful ways to create a protective boundary. Simply draw a circle around the object with a fine line of sea salt. As you lay the circle envision the salt glowing a bright violet color. Whatever is within the circle’s interior is protected from harm.
You can create a protective boundary by making a circle of red thread. Encircle whatever you are trying to protect, and then tie the threads ends together by knotting it three times.
You can use cornmeal in the same manner as salt. You can even draw a circle with white or red chalk. The circle and the substance combined create an energetic barrier that cannot be penetrated by negative energetic influences.
The protective quality of the circle is temporary. Reform the circle at least every few weeks. Or more often if the boundary has been tampered with or has withstood strong negative blows.
Creating a protective circle around your home is a very basic way to use this effective tool!
