5 Free Protection Spells For Loved Ones [Protection Magic]

Updated on:


Written by: Tina Caro

In this article, I’ll cover protection spells for loved ones, protection charms, a few symbols of protection from harm, and I’ll give you some tips and tricks that you can use before you start with protection magic.

We live in an aggressive society, that is a fact. We can’t ignore issues that are around us for months, even years, without feeling some kind of consequence.

For those of a relatively peaceful nature, this reality is so shocking that it takes a long time to rearrange thoughts and abilities to respond to provocation.

Some challenges motivate us to achieve our goals or missions. Other challenges, on the other hand, must be absolutely avoided, and this is where this article comes into play.


Protection spells are magical practices intended to safeguard individuals, spaces, or objects from harm and negativity.

They use elements like candles, herbs, crystals, and incantations to create protective barriers.

Practitioners employ protection spells when feeling vulnerable or when wanting to ensure a secure environment.

These spells are versatile and can be performed regularly or when specific protection is needed, making them a proactive approach to maintaining well-being and safety.

Did You Know?

I was honored when I was recently asked by Court TV producers to consult on a case.

You can view the clip below. This case is a great example of why I do not cast any spells that have harmful intentions. As a Professional Spellcaster, I work with clients from all over the world and it’s important to me to remain grounded and stay ‘in the light’ so that I can help as many people as possible.

Casting your own magic spells takes skill and patience and isn’t recommended in most cases. I provide these “do it yourself” spells for educational purposes, but it is strongly recommended that you consult an experienced spell caster such as myself and allow me to do the work for you.

This way you know it’s being done by someone experienced and knowledgeable and I’m also always here to answer questions about your casting and provide follow-up at no additional charge.

What are Protection Spells?

DefinitionProtection Spells are magical rituals and practices performed to create a shield or ward against harm, negative energy, or unwanted influences.
PurposeThe primary purpose of these spells is to enhance safety, security, and well-being by safeguarding individuals, their homes, or their possessions.
Ethical ConsiderationsPractitioners approach Protection Spells with ethical considerations, emphasizing the importance of using this magic responsibly and for the purpose of defense rather than harm.
Types of ProtectionProtection Spells can vary widely, including personal protection, home protection, protection for loved ones, and protection against specific threats like psychic attacks or malevolent entities.
Holistic Well-BeingThese spells focus on holistic well-being by providing a sense of security and peace of mind, which can contribute to physical and emotional health.

How to Create a Protective Spiritual Plan

Creating a protective spiritual plan is crucial in magic, and it involves careful consideration of your goal. A comprehensive plan includes logical thinking about the situation, the impact of both magical and mundane actions on others, building a positive support structure, reshaping your mindset for success, and involving the spirit. Protection spells are a part of this plan.

Protection spells can manifest or banish energies, attracting positive ones and removing negative ones. The first step in protection magic is to desire control over your life. It’s important to exercise caution and common sense, avoiding reckless behavior.

Never rely on black magic when strange things happen; instead, seek help from the spirit. Using black magic can bring more negativity into your life. Sometimes, the universe sends signals to guide you towards a better path, and it’s essential to be open to spiritual guidance.

Intelligent practitioners avoid using magic to harm, understanding that true power lies in doing good. Chaos doesn’t equate to evil, and Wiccans focus on banishing negativity and working with karma instead. The key takeaway is to balance theory with practical action in your spiritual practice.


How Long Does it Take to Cast a Protection Spell?

Completing a protection spell or any magical activity can take a few minutes or a few weeks. Each protection spell has its own ritual and a mission, so I recommend that you pick one and finesse it.

For example, if it takes me five minutes to create a protective barrier against negativity that affects the family. But if I try to help a friend who is experiencing a difficult separation, I would need a lot more time.

Don’t be discouraged if a spell doesn’t work right away. Try again. Recast it. The complexity of magical activity is less important than the delicacy of the procedure and your willpower.

If a spell you would like to perform is a spell that requires a daily practice like repeating a certain prayer for 5/7/10 days in a row and you cannot commit to that kind of practice, simply skip that kind of spell and choose one to whom you can commit completely, being truly present and open to follow its instructions in the long term.

When to Chant a Protection Spell?

Many witches use moon phases to determine the period in which to perform a magical activity. Although there are eight distinct moon phases, we will work mainly with five specific phases:

1. New moon – the opening of something new
2. Full moon – power
3. Black moon – banish
4. Crescent moon – build
5. Waning moon – rework and rebuild

phases of the moon
Moon Phases

So how long do I need to wait before I see something happen?

You will have to wait as long as it’s necessary. Here’s why;

  • Magic follows the path of least resistance, so it’s essential to avoid unnecessary obstacles when manifesting. While clarity in your request is vital, small goals tend to manifest faster than larger ones. Typically, small goals take 24 hours to 30 days (one lunar cycle) to manifest.
  • For more challenging objectives, magical techniques may need to be reinforced, and involving multiple people can delay the manifestation process. It’s crucial to identify the main actors in a situation and address each aspect individually. For instance, if your child is suspended from school due to a lie and teacher bias, these are two separate issues, and resolving them may require different timelines.
  • Managing complex situations requires patience and the understanding that various factors can influence the outcome. It’s essential to work on individual aspects while keeping the overall goal in mind.

The old masters said: “Cast a spell, then forget it”. By these words they meant that once the spell is done, it is no longer necessary to worry about it.

Putting negative thoughts into magical work will weaken the intent. If you worry too much about the final result, you will create blocks.

Remember that sincerity and needs have an important weight on any protection spell. If today is Wednesday, the spell should be concluded on Saturday, but you really need to do it today, proceed anyway.

Let’s Take a Look at a List of My Favorite Protection Spells For Loved Ones

Authentication Ritual (Do this Before Every Ritual)

It is found that the self-worship ritual performed before a spell greatly helps to focus on the goal.

You can write your own ritual, or you can use the following.

Take three deep breaths.

  • Imagine a silvery light that flows into your body. It is the energy of the Moon Goddess.
  • Take three deep breaths. Imagine a golden light flowing into your body. It is the energy of the Sun God.
  • Take three deep breaths. Imagine a white light flowing into your body. It is the joint energy of the Universal Life Force or Universal Love.

Speak the following words:

Blessed be my feet that walk the path of mystery.
Blessed are my knees bending before the sacred altar.
Blessed be my heart, molded in beauty and love.
Blessed be my lips, who pronounce sacred names.

Open your arms to welcome protection and love. Then bring it back slowly to your heart to indicate that you have accepted these gifts, and end with these words.

So be it. Now you can start casting.

protection spells for loved ones

1. The God Janus Protection Spell

The God Janus Protection Spell
Share this spell with your witchy friends.

In the process of casting this spell, we will have to request some assistance from Janus, the two-faced Roman god of all beginnings.

Difficulty: Beginner-friendly

Effectiveness: 4/5


  • Half a cup of coffee;
  • A piece of butter;
  • The names of the people who obstruct you written on piece of paper;
  • A coffee filter;
  • A clean bowl.

How it’s done

  1. Put a filter in a bowl, and on this filter, there should be indicated the magic symbol, rune, or the name of the god or goddess you have chosen. The two-faced god Janus is particularly suitable for this magical activity.
The God Janus Protection Spell example
  1. Add butter and heat it along with a filter.
  2. Put a piece of paper with names (or just one) on the top of a filter.
  3. Pour in a warm coffee on the mixture.
  4. Ask Janus for help to remove these individuals from your life.
  5. Once the spell is completed, throw away the mixture far away from home.

This is one of the strongest protection spells from enemies, to fight back any negative energy cast towards you, your life, and your goals.

If you can repeat the spell after one week from the first casting to see results. It’s not mandatory but it’s a great plus.

2. The Touch and Burn Spell

The Touch and Burn Spell
Share this spell with your witchy friends.

This is a classic White Magic spell that serves to protect your belongings.

If you want to protect a certain area of your life you can use an item linked to it to make it happen. For example: if you want to protect your finances you can cast a spell on your wallet, if you want to protect a project, cast the spell on a folder with all your documents about it, if you want to protect someone you love you can cast the spell on one of his/her belongings or if you want to protect the relationship you have with someone you cast a spell on an item strictly related to you and this other person.

This is not an easy spell but it’s still very powerful. If this is your first time casting a similar kind of spell, try something easier and more beginner-friendly at first and then give this more advanced one a try.

Difficulty: Advanced

Effectiveness: 4/5


  • A pin or a nail;
  • A white candle;
  • The object you want to protect (a wallet for example).

How it’s done

  1. Heat the tip of the pin or nail, then engrave your name in a candle, then light it.
  2. When flame calms down, close your eyes and visualize the light of a candle in the darkness of your mind.
  3. If you can’t, try to “hear it.”
  4. Continue to practice until you feel that you have mastered it.
  5. In the end, put your hands on the object you want to protect, and say these words:“If you touch it you will burn!”
  6. Keep repeating these words while touching the object.
  7. See the heat and light from the candle that penetrates the object, making it too hot for anyone who wants to touch it without your permission.
  8. Visualize the pentacle symbol above the object.
  9. Finally, let the candle burn out.

To reinforce the spell you need to:

  • Cast it on Sunday, at the time of the sun.
  • Cast it on the full moon.
  • Repeat everything once a month.
  • Add a personal security seal on the object.

As I said, you can protect almost everything, your car, house, bag, art, expensive jewelry, etc. It’s definitely one of the strongest protection spells from enemies.

3. St. Brigid’s House Protection Spell

Saint Brigid House Protection Spell
Share this spell with your witchy friends.

If you feel some negative energy is around your place, maybe you feel someone you know is sending your home negative vibes and you need protection, this is a fantastic spell to bless and protect your home from any harm.

It’s a spell for expert witches because it involves a prayer only and, even if it might seem a bit weird, when you work with the power of prayers, affirmations and more is way more difficult to do it as you need to focus and commit completely to let it work.

Spend a little time to get ready for this and see how it goes.

Difficulty: Advanced

Effectiveness: 4/5

How it’s done

  1. Choose the divinity that best represents your sense of the Divine.For this spell, I usually work with Brigid, a Celtic goddess of water and fire, whose healing energies will help purify a home which was violated by the violence, heated discussions or other negative manifestations.

    If you are not comfortable with this kind of invocation, choose to refer to some god/goddess you feel a connection with and that inspires protection and safety.

    St. Brigid’s day is one of the four most important festivals of the Celtic tradition, and we celebrate it on February 1st (Candelora).
    The totem of this goddess is a cow, so diary offerings (such as milk) are welcome.

  2. Visualize the four elements throughout the house, imagining that negativity is banned from every room.
  3. Once finished, stand in the middle of the room and say this invocation:“I’m the wind on the sea.
    They are an ocean wave.
    I am the roar of the sea.
    I am a powerful ox.
    I’m the hawk on the cliff.
    I am a drop of dew in the sun.
    I am the force of art.
    I am a spear with loot engaged in battle
    I cleaned the stony place on the mountain.
    From the cellar to the attic, from the window to the door,
    from the roof to the garden, I fill this house
    protective energy of (Name of the chosen deity)
    and I ask that the people here reside
    the blessings are dispensed.
    So be it!”

Renew this ritual every six months.

To reinforce the spell you need to:

  • Act with the full moon.
  • Cast it on a Monday (family matters) or Sunday (business matters).
  • Cast it when the moon is in Cancer or Virgo.
  • Act in the time of the moon.
  • Repeat every year, possibly on February 1st and New Year.

This ancient Celtic poem magically affirms your sovereignty over the house you live in. You can also use it as a protection spell for someone else.

You can do to your loved one’s house and cast this spell for them if someone close to you feels some protection is needed. Just focus on that home and feel like you are a vessel from protection to get to your loved ones and their place and make it happen! You’ve got this!

4. The Blessed Button and Enchanted Cord Spell

The Blessed Button and Enchanted Cord Spell
Share this spell with your witchy friends.

This is one of the protection spells that work because of love and friendship.

You can cast it for yourself but for a friend too. If a friend of yours asks for protection, if this friend feels like something negative is around him/her and you want to help him/her out, this is the right spell to do so.

I performed this spell so many times and always worked. You know it works when the people you cast this protection spell to feel a sense of renewed harmony and safety around them. It might take up to 7 days to manifest.

Difficulty: Advanced

Effectiveness: 5/5


  • Get a real button from every true friend, asking him to bless him with protection and love.
  • A chord (or a string of white cotton)

How it’s done

  1. Put the buttons on the cord, asking the divinity for protection, love, and luck.
The Blessed Button and Enchanted Cord Spell example
  1. Use the lanyard for all kinds of protective magic, or carry it in your purse or briefcase to ensure good luck and protection.
  2. If you have a particularly difficult day, place the enchanted cord around your photo.
  3. “Say these words to enchant the button and turning it into a protection amulet
    As the chord is around the button
    So protection is around me (you)
    Supported, secured, safe
    A shield of protection is rising up.”

To reinforce the spell you need to cast:

  • it on Friday, in the hour of Venus.
  • in on a full moon day.
  • it when the moon is in Leo.

Not only for yourself, but you can also collect buttons for:
– A sick friend.
– A friend who moves into a new house.
– For friends who go to the university that is far away from home.

I recommend using this one as a protection spell for someone else.

5. The Handkerchief Enchantment Spell

The Handkerchief Enchantment Spell
Share this spell with your witchy friends.

This spell is beneficial for the protection of the people that live in a house with you.

So if a member of your family needs some protection this is the right spell to cast. You don’t need anything too fancy or hard to find. The most important thing for you to do before casting this spell is to cleanse your mind before casting it.

Why? As you are going to cast this spell on a family member it might happen that you absorbed a little bit too much of the worry, the fear, and the sense of discomfort he/she is feeling it. Try to shake these feelings off and get ready to be open and positive to create this protection shield with the help of this enchanted handkerchief.

Difficulty: Advanced

Effectiveness: 5/5


  • A white handkerchief for each family member;
  • Blessed spring water; (you can use simple water and bless it on a night of new moon)
  • Sea salt;
  • Protective incense of your choice;
  • A photo of each family member.

How it’s done

  1. Lay handkerchiefs on a flat surface. They must be open, not bent.
  2. On each handkerchief sprinkle some spring water and sea salt. That will purify each one.
  3. Move each handkerchief over the incense three times.
The Handkerchief Enchantment Spell example
  1. Put a picture on each one. You must know to who it belongs to.
  2. Place your hands on the first photo and say:
    “And the Spirit did miracles by the hands of the children of God,
    so that they could bring aid to the sick and fearful,
    to heal diseases and free them from evil spirits.”
  3. Visualize a pure white light that enters your body from the crown chakra (top of your head) and slowly descends towards the heart, arms, hands, and finally into the picture.
  4. If you lose your concentration or feel that you are finished, take a deep breath and seal the spell by making the sign of the cross with your hands over the photo and the handkerchief.
  5. Pick the next picture and a handkerchief and repeat the process.

When you are finished, thank the Spirit for the guidance.

Give the handkerchief to the person to whom it belongs, because they need to carry it, not you. It is going to work as an amulet for protection.

Renew this ritual every six months, or sooner, if you feel it necessary.

To reinforce the spell you need to:

  • Add a choice of protective herb mixture to the sea salt.
  • Cast it with the full moon.
  • Cast it on Monday, at the time of the moon.
  • Cast it on your birthday.
  • Add the name of a specific deity.

This spell works well, even if you want to protect our sick friend or a suffering pet.

My Thoughts

I tried to give you all the tools to make these spells in the simplest way possible.

Remember, what matters the most is your soul and non-harmful intentions; because that’s really the reason why spells work. And by the way, spirits are sympathetic towards those who have just started.

Some experienced witches won’t agree with some of my sayings and/or rituals, but what I’m trying to do here is to simplify these spells for those that know nothing, or a little bit about the art of spellcraft.

Magick is not that tricky dark complex practice we are used to seeing in movies or around the internet. You should consider it as a chance to explore yourself, get in tune with your true energy, and learn how to shine and spread your light into the world by making some magic.

6 Fundamental Notes for Protection Spells

Here are some fundamental rules of magic aimed at personal protection (or any other white magic) and an explanation of the most common things that you should be aware of before you cast anything.

  • The most important one: do everything to protect yourself without rituals before turning to magic, that is, first apply all your strengths and common sense to resolve a situation.
  • If you are abused, don’t keep it inside but talk about it as soon as it’s possible with someone you trust.
  • Never target an innocent. It can happen that if you cast a harmful spell, it will deflect back to the one that’s casting it – you.
  • Don’t wait until it’s too late to react. You should have enough strength and nerves to do a ritual of protection. Cast a spell as soon as you can before any negative energy gets too strong and it gets a bit harder to fight it back.
  • If you do something morally, ethically, or legally wrong, don’t ask the magic to protect you. If you ask the universe to fix something that you did wrong, it will ignore your request and will set things right the way it thinks, so be careful.
  • You must first ask for permission if you are going to cast a protection spell for loved one. If you want to make it without them knowing what you are doing you should cast it only if your intentions aren’t harmful. If you cast a spell from a place of love and care it might manifest without negative effects or backfires.


Do I really need every ingredient to do the spell?

Most magical tasks are based on correspondences, energies, or aspects that relate to the purpose of the activity. In this article the purpose is protection.

You will find various ingredients for each spell, as well as some replacement suggestions. These variations are the planetary hour, the divinities, the herbs, the oils, the basic astrology, the totemic animals, the secret alphabets, the moon phases, the colors, and the elements.

Remember that you are don’t have to use all the ingredients mentioned at each spell.

If you don’t like working with plant energies, don’t use them. Replacements are allowed.

I simply tried to offer you a wide range of choices I found useful.

Why protection magic won’t always work? What can you do about it?

In my opinion, if magic does not work, if the spiritual plan fails, self-confidence shouldn’t suffer.

The Spirit knows what we need and what we don’t, and sometimes when you least expect it, the Spirit can intervene and block your work. Sometimes it does this to protect us or others because it knows that other important missions are waiting for us.

I suggest that you say to the Spirit to “…make the best thing happen for me…” during a magical activity. By saying this, the divine Spirit is allowed to guide us in our work.
