So, a couple of friends suggested to me that I set up a magickal “sink hole” or “vortex of doom” to help keep negativity out of my house during the baby shower I’ll be throwing for EldestDaughter in a couple of weeks.
I’ve actually done this before, for a friend who had someone negative coming to their house on a regular basis. It worked, sometimes a little too well, so I’ve decided to post the process I used here, for those of you who are of a mind to try something like this!
First, clean the area that you are going to be using to set this up. A dirty space doesn’t work well for magick. You have to do the physical work, to help the visualisation manifest in reality.
I’ll use my front door as the example, since that’s where this is going.
Step 1: Sweep, clean up underneath the step too, if you can get to that area.
Step 2: Center yourself. Place your feet about shoulder-width apart, and close your eyes. Hold your hands out, palms down over the area (you don’t have to put your hands on it, just hold them above the space), and visualise a white light/water/wind/etc. (whatever you use for cleansing) cleansing the area. You can also use salt water, incense, a candle flame, or a stone, if you prefer. It’s up to you how you get rid of any “leftover static”.
Step 3: With eyes closed, visualise a pentagram, made out of your favorite element (earth, wind, fire, water), and see it right where you want the sink hole/drain/vortex to be. Once you have the pentagram clear in your mind, see it begin to spin, slowly, counterclockwise. You can, if you so choose, have a chant you speak at this point, such as “No negativity shall enter here,” or “No harm brought in, let happiness win”. Again, your choice.
Imagine that this spinning pentagram will pull any negative energy from anyone who steps on or over it. It will drain the negativity out of them, and send it into the ground, where it can be changed to natural, non-specific, energy again. Neither negative nor positive, simply neutral.
Just remember, you want to have your intent clear when you set this up. There can’t be any harmful thoughts going into the setup, or you risk having it backfire on you. Karma will get her way.
