The Forest is old and wise, and in it lives the power of the ancient spirits. It offers natural protection from those who seek it. For the white witch, this spell will will be easy. For the darker witches, this spell may become difficult, as the element of air and north winds will challenge you. Go with open heart and open mind, and follow the spell exactly. If you do not believe of the power of nature and the ancients, this spell will not work for you.
You must first find a forest that contains within ancient trees and is near or close to water; perhaps having a brook or stream wtihin.
To prepare for this spell you will need items to take with you. A container of Natural Sea Salt for making a sacred circle, a satchel strong enough to carry the weight of your burdens and ten medium rocks gathered from the forest. Lighter or matches. A bottle of Natural Spring Water. The rest of the items must be gathered from teh forest, but not pulled off the trees. They must be collected from the forest floor, showing your respect.
You must go alone, on a warm clear sunny day, when winds are low.
Seven hundred and seventy two paces into the ancient forest is where you will start to gather your supplies. Gather ye the bark of three different birch trees, a small remnant from each at least 2″ x 2″ , but only from the ground of which it has shed. If your forest lacks birch bark you must look to the forest floor for the bark of the ancients and substitute this. The trees will speak to you of which bark to gather.
Gather three tiny pine cones, and three hundred and thirty three pine needles, counting them all. Father a small stick that speaks to you, as it will be unusual in shape upon first glance. Gather ye ten rocks, smooth and knowledgeable, but these may be found near the stream or brook or pool of water found deep within the forest.
To find the perfect casting spot, for this spell it is extremely important that you cast on a rock on the edge of a stream or babbling brook. If your forest borders a shore, lake or ocean, even better. The element of water must be present near this spell in order for it to work. I have removed my shoes and climbed into the stream to cast on a rock for the best output. It the wind is too strong you cannot cast on this day and must return three days after, and then three days after that, and so on and so forth until the wind has calmed. If you do not return within three days, you have broken the power of the items, and must return your supplies to the forest and start all over again, gathering different supplies. If you are lucky and the forest is working with you, on this calm sunny day in or near the stream on a rock, do just this:
Put your gathered supplies in this formation:
middle – needles and stick
top- pine cones
The items should be in a small teepee shape formation, so that they will catch and burn. However, it is important to do this with your Spring Water handy, in case the demons working against you try to blow your formation down, and hurt the ancients. (You don’t want a forest fire. )
Surround the collected pile with the ten rocks you have gathered in a circle.
Surround the rocks with sea salt.
Light the bark and have your water ready.
Once your formation starts to burn you must get on your knees and chant the following:
I (your name) call to the ancients on this day;
through the forest I’ve made my way.
Respecting your beauty, having no fear,
I’ve collected your fruits and wisdom here.
I beg three to protect me day and protect me night,
from the darkness and demons of life I must fight,
Cast me the power of your trees,
I call on the ancients from my knees!
Cast me the power of your light,
I call upon the ancients dressed in white!
Three times three so mote it be,
the power of this forest shall protect me.
(Louder:) Three times three so mote it be; the power of this forest shall protect me.
(Louder & Putting Out Your Fire With Your Spring Water ) Three times three so now it shall be, I am protected thanks to thee.
*Make sure the items are smothered with the water, and toss them into the brook or stream, never looking back, only forward from this day on.
