As summer winds down and we move into autumn, it is a good time to establish a yearly ritual to protect your home. The direction of the seasons is shifting from active to passive, but there is still plenty of energy around to tap into for a simple protection ritual.
You can use a sage smudge stick for this (being careful of stray sparks) or a bowl of salt and water. Move through each room of your house or apartment, starting at the front door. Either waft the sage stick or sprinkle the salt and water mixture with your fingertips. As you walk through your space, be mindful of any entrance or exit (windows, doors, etc.), and give them an extra bit of attention. As you do this, say:
My home is protected.
