Ah the holidays. Its a time for joy and love. Its a time that is meant to be full of happiness and good will towards others. This time of year is as full of goodwill and love towards your fellow man as it is jealousy and fear. From neighbors who are jealous of you to those troubling family issues that seem to come up around the holidays energy of jealousy and anger spread as rapidly as love and joy. A lot of the jealousy issues raised during this time are unconscious so it is important to keep up your protections.
In addition to what ever protections you typically have around your home this time of year you can add extra protections through your holiday decorations. That’s right your wreaths, the bells, and the crystal balls on your holiday tree can be protections. These protections are excellent in that they can be hidden in plain sight which makes them even more effective. So lets take a look at a few of these decorations.
Lets start with the wreath. Wreaths are in a circle which is unbroken. Most wreaths are made out of evergreens. Most evergreen trees have symbolism of prosperity and wealth or succsess. So the wreath itself represents unbroken prosperity and succsess. Many wreaths have tinsel or glittering ribbon as decorations. Those glimmering ribbons distract any ill intent or spirit that is sent your way. Add a pair of nails in a cross buried in the center of the wreath and you have excellent protection.
Christmas and Yule trees are very popular. Tinsel is a common decoration like with wreaths the tinsel distracts the ill intent of any spirits that could be sent your way. Many craft stores sell clear glass balls that can be decorated with symbols of protection (depending on your path which symbols are important to you) and filled with herbs protection, luck, prosperity, etc. Adding bells to your tree will invite positive spirits and blessings and warn you if there are negative spirits or energy it will banish them from the area.
Finally cinnamon brooms can be hung to invite prosperity and succsess. If you add red ribbons it will bring protection your way as well. Hang it over your door or the door to your business or office to bring succsess and prosperity through the new year. Adding bells or chimes will add additional protection and blessings.
I hope that you will take this article and use it to spark some Yule or Christmas holiday traditions. Let the decoration for the holiday and the setting of the decorations with the protections and blessings become a ritual in and out of itself. By letting your family join in the setting of the decorations everyone adds their energy, their desires, and their will to the home. The decorations and the magic within them will truly reflect the whole home. Brining the whole family together is really what the holidays are all about.
May you have a blessed Holiday!
