So now that we are calm and cleansed from the last two posts, we can set up some protection with a magickal cup of tea. I am crazy about chai tea. The chai tea latte from Starbucks can get my motor running when my energy is dragging. I know, it’s probably the sugar combined with the caffeine that revs me up but every once in awhile I treat myself. It just so happens that the cinnamon and cloves that are often found in chai tea carry a protection energy vibe.
Many protective plants have spines and spikes that hint of their ability to protect. If you look at a whole clove you will notice that it has little spikes all over it. If you have ever tried pushing those little suckers into the peel of an orange to make one of those pomanders, you understand their ability to inflict pain from the way they hurt your finger tips!
It’s perfectly fine to go buy your favorite chai tea blend to use in this spell. If the tea doesn’t contain either cinnamon or cloves then you should add some to the tea as it brews. As before, assemble all your tea making supplies. If you feel like it, you can light a red or black candle and burn some cinnamon or copal incense. Ground and center yourself. Smell that yummy spicey tea as the aroma drifts up from the cup you have poured. Take one sip and saver it a moment. Then repeat the following words:
As I sip this spicy brew,
I know I have protection true!
Cinnamon and cloves lend your power
to serve me in this magickal hour!
Negativity flees from here;
I ‘m safe and secure with nothing to fear!
And so by the power of three times three,
As I will it, so shall it be!
Know that you are safe and protected…… and enjoy the rest of your tea!
