Making A Guardian

This post was written by Donald Michael Kraig

In an earlier post, “No Mirror Spells, Please!” I gave three reasons why using that type of spell is not a good idea. However, I did not mean to imply that you should not protect yourself.

One of my favorite forms of protection is known as a Guardian. A Guardian is simply a type of amulet (talismans draw things to you, amulets keep them away) with an extended life. As I described in a previous post, magickal goals should have a time frame. With a guardian, you supply new protective energy monthly, so it has no specific date for achieving its protective goal.

The fun part of this is to find something to be your Guardian. It could be as simple as a small object you keep on your windowsill and by the door. It doesn’t have to attract attention. My friend Scott Cunningham liked to use a toy dinosaur or monster that had a fierce appearance. His apartment had them by the windows and near the door.

Do they work? Well, at the time, he lived in what the San Diego Police Department called the most crime-ridden area of San Diego, but he never was attacked or had a break-in, even when sometimes accidentally leaving the door unlocked.

For more information on how to make and charge a Guardian, see my Modern Magick. However, if you have your own method of creating and charging an amulet, feel free to use it with your Guardian. I suggest sending more energy to it every month or six weeks.

What do you use as a guardian? Share your ideas with others in comments to this blog post.

I used to use an action figure from the Aliens movie, he worked quite well. :> I have also put up a plushi Cthulu, Nyralothotep and Shoggoth. In their case they just took up the role of protectors all by themselves and brought about some quite interesting (and humorous) visions.
