Protection Amulet

This amulet is a bundle to be carried with you, so be sure to use a small stone. Create this amulet during a waxing or full moon phase. 

Stones:

One of the following, depending on your specific need:

  • Clear Quartz: all-purpose
  • Tiger Eye: courage
  • Black Tourmaline or Obsidian: repelling unwanted energy
  • Garnet: guards against thieves (good to keep in a vehicle)
  • Turquoise: protection during a spiritual jouney
  • Moonstone: protection during travel

Other Items:

  • Incense (frankincense if possible)
  • A candle of any size, white or red
  • A piece of red or white cloth for wrapping the stone (or a draw string bag)
  • String, ribbon, or twine

Create sacred space as desired. Light the incense and the candle. Pass the stone through the incense smoke and chant:

Rising smoke, clear this sone.

Next (holding the stone safely in tongs, if you wish), charge it by passing it quickly through the candle flame and chant:

Rising flame, charge this stone. 

Hold the stone in your projective hand and wrap your fingers around it. Focus your intent on your specific need. Speak it out loud if you’d like. Chant five times:

Stone as guard, danger barred:

To protect, none detect.

Wrap the fabric around the stone and tie it in a knot with the ribbon or string. Allow the wrapped stone to rest near the candle until it burns out. Allow the incense to burn out as well.

Carry the amulet with you in your pocket, handbag, briefcase, backpack, etc., for as long as you feel the need. Recharge the amulet as you feel is necessary.

Buses were another easy spot. Everybody was usually distracted or, like now, spaced out because of the early hours. On the packed morning commute, Scotty could sometimes hit five or six marks in the time it took to go just one stop. Standing in the aisle now and hanging onto one of the railings above his head, he rifled steadily through the pockets, briefcases, and backpacks of everyone in the immediate area. 

He was sliding somebody’s watch that may or may not be a cheap knockoff into his jacket when he became aware of a pair of eyes fixed on him. Hackles prickling irritably, Scotty tried to cast a discreet glance in the observer’s direction, but to his consternation they locked eyes almost immediately. The stranger was looking directly at him in a way almost no one ever did, causing Scotty another flash of hostile annoyance. There was no room in the aisle to move further away, and the only spare seat seemed to be next to the stranger. Sigh. 

Scott gritted his teeth and reluctantly sank into it, because it would just look weird now if he didn’t. He searched through the man’s pockets automatically while he settled his own ratty rucksack between his peeling converses. “.. Morning.”

Going Up - Chapter 5

Summary: Some loves last a hundred lifetimes. And sometimes, so do their scars. An AU within an AU, from the collective minds of the OBFrankenfic group.


Delphine, with all the wisdom of a ten-year-old, had declared herself a pessimistic realist. Life made more sense in shades of black, white and gray, whereas the abusive color of the optimists made a mess of an otherwise tidy world. Where they saw free will, she saw the illusion of choice.

Pragmatic, reflective, inflexible — these would be the boxes in which she opted to spend her life. Perhaps, these surges of color were at the heart of her aversion to literature, cinema, art. She saw the way such color played into the ebb and flow of society, made it feel vibrant even, but she watched from her monochrome corner as inevitably their intense denial left them exposed to the harshness of the world.

And yet…
