Sharpen Your Claws Spell
Intent: To strengthen and protect those who spend their lives strenthening and protecting others. A spell to care for the mama bears in your life.
Materials: a jar
3 nails and/or rose thorns (tough as nails)
2 hematite crystals (grounding, strength, protection, willpower reliability, balance)
a rose bud/petal/rose (beautiful and strong)
a black candle (strong protection)
a red candle (strength, passion)
rosemary and yarrow (protection, especially against psychic attack)
cinnamon (protection from negative energies)
optional: any other crystals associated with wisdom, strength, protection, etc.
Procedure: Cast a circle and/or cleanse the space as you see fit. Cleanse the jar. Light the candles.
Hold both hematite stones and meditate on their purpose. Fill them with the intent to protect the subject of the spell. Form a connection between the stones and charge them until you feel that they are linked by energy and intent and are two halves of a single whole. If it helps, imagine binding them together with string, wrapping it until they cannot be separated. Use an actual string if it helps. When you separate them, feel the energetic connection pulling them together. Place one in the jar and hold the other one.
Focus on the intent of any other crystals you are adding and then place them in the jar.
Add the nails, saying “tough as nails, battered but never broken.” Focus on their purpose and how strong the subject is.
Add the rose or rose parts, saying “protect yourself with thorns and horns; sway but never bend; bear your beauty and your claws alike.”
Add the rosemary, yarrow, and cinnamon, focussing on your intent and their purpose.
Once done, meditate with the jar. Seal it with wax from both candles. Give the loose hematite crystal to the subject, along with the spell jar. They can carry the crystal for protection and grounding.
