9 day spell for blessing a home

What you will need:

1 white candle
1 red candle
1 green candle
1 blue candle

Money House blessing oil
Peaceful home Oil
Protection oil
Dixie John oil

Dixie John Root
Gentian Root
Basil

House blessing Powder
Peaceful Home Powder
Protection Powder

A red cotton flannel bag
5 slips of paper big enough to fold into small packets..

A red pen or marker.

Take the five slips of paper. Using the red pen or marker, you are going to write the following five runes on it.
Wunjo Algiz Othala Dagaz Qweorth

Wunjo
Algiz
Othala/Aethel
Dagaz
Qweorth/Cweorth

You should write each rune 9 times on each slip of paper. Arrange the papers so they overlap slightly forming an equal armed cross.

Mix together the three powders and sprinkle them on the papers and around them forming a circle. Sprinkle them with basil as well, and place the Dixie John root and gentian root in the middle.

Starting with the white candle, anoint it with Protection oil. Anoint the red candle with Dixie John oil, anoint the green candle with Money House Blessing oil, and the blue candle with Peaceful Home oil. Place the white candle on your left, and the green candle on your right, the red candle below those two candles and the blue candle above. So that all the candles are sitting on the cross of papers that you created. Light the candles and pray the Lord’s prayer three times.


Let the candles burn. You will repeat this nine days, either burning the candles in sections, or burning new candles for each day, or continuously burning vigil lights for 9 days.

On the 9th day when the candles have finished, take four of the papers, put a pinch of the powder blend into it, and fold the paper up into a small packet. Seal the packets with tape. Take each packet and tape them discreetly into the four corners of your house. Take the fifth paper and wrap it up around a pinch of powder and the dixie john and gentian root. Place this into the red flannel bag, and place it in the heart of your home. Where the heart is, is up to you. It could be in the bedroom, under  your mattress, as the place of love, peace and rest. It could be concealed in the kitchen cupboard, where food is prepared that nurtures and nourishes. It could be placed in the central hallway so that all you pass by it are blessed and that blessing is carried with them wherever they go. It could be a dining room where family and friends gather together to eat and celebrate in joy. It could be a living room where the family gathers to share in entertainment and joy. It could also be the literal and exact center of your home and it could be hidden inside the walls if you wanted and could achieve that. The fifth packet can also be placed next to or under a candle once a month or once a year to help in re blessing the house, as it is connected to the other packets and will help reinforce the blessings on the house, when you feel it is necessary.



This spell is good to do just after doing a thorough home cleansing, or just when you move into a new home. Another good time to perform it is starting on new year’s day, or starting on Midsummer either the the day of the Summer Solstice of June 25, the Nativity of the John the Baptist.

Days of Cyprian – Day 9

Creating an Amparo

An amparo is a ritual or talisman used for protection. I say ritual because I have seen rituals that are called amparos that are done on people for their protection, or done before undertaking a working or rite. They can also be talismans, which is the most commonly known version. That is what I am going to talk about here. Specifically this is to create an amparo with Saint Cyprian. When I first began working with Saint Cyprian many things fell into place for me. One was easily acquiring a statue of him, which just showed up at a store I went shopping at, and it was the only one there was. The next was acquiring some prayer cards of Saint Cyprian. Prayer cards are the main component of creating an amparo, although it can also be used in a simple amparo ritual as well. 

For this ritual you will need the following.

2 Saint Cyprian prayer cards

1 picture of the person who the amparo is for

1 candle, white or purple

Thread, white, red or purple

Saint Cyprian Oil

Incense, usually a blend of frankincense and myrrh, but gloria incense or altar incense will work well.

Take the picture of the person. It should be the same size as the prayer cards, so wallet sized. Sandwich the picture between the prayer cards, with the image of the saint facing out on both sides. Then take the thread and wrap it around the picture and cards, forming a cross as you do so. Tie it off and cut away any hanging strands. Anoint the four corners of the amparo with Saint Cyprian oil. 

Pray psalm 91 and then say
Saint Cyprian, Mage and Martyr, Saint and Sorcerer I ask you to protect me from evil conspiracies of my enemies, to guard me from evil intentions, hexes, the beguiling serpent and the rabid wolf. + Guard me, Saint Cyprian, both day and night, and night and day, in waking and in sleeping, from evil, whether it be from spirit or man. + Be my watcher, Saint Cyprian, being ever alert and aware. +  Untie all bindings, break all hexes, and shatter all enchantments upon me, Saint Cyprian. + Consecrate this amparo with your power, and with the blessings of the spiritual treasure house given to by God, and Jesus the Christ, In nomine patria, et filio et spiritus sanctus +

The little crosses in the above prayer indicate where you should make the sign of the cross over yourself.

When doing so, you can either hold your thumb, index and middle finger together, which is the gesture of benediction or cross your thumb with your index finger, and your middle, ring, and pinky finger straight. The crossed thumb is the cross, and the three straight fingers symbolize the three nails that were used in crucifixion. 

Anoint the candle with Saint Cyprian oil and place the amparo under the candle holder. Light the candle and as it burns, recite the lord’s prayer 9 times. Then recite the Hail Mary three times, and Gloria prayer three times. When the candle is finished burning, carry the amparo with you for protection. You can carry it in your wallet, purse, or pocket, or in a drawstring bag around your neck.

A more simplified version of this ritual. Instead of creating a talisman, you can just sandwich the picture between the prayer cards, and place it under the candle, anointed with Saint Cyprian oil. Use the same prayers but instead of “consecrate this amparo…” Protect me with your power Saint Cyprian, and with the blessings of the spiritual treasure house given to you by God, and Jesus the Christ, In nomine patria, et filio et spiritus santus, amen +

Also, when doing this ritual for someone else, you would substitute their name at the appropriate times in the prayer ie instead of “me” say “John Doe”.

Days of Cyprian – Day 8

Pray the opening of Genesis before lighting candles

This is a practice that I was led to by Spirit to do when lighting candles. When you are lighting candles, before you light it, pray over the candle the Genesis 1 v 1-4.

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

Then using your match or lighter, light the wick of the candles you are working with. Then continue with whatever prayers or works you were going to do.

Days of Cyprian – Day 7

Use Holy Water to bring make a place Holy

(What do you do with that holy water?)

    You take that holy water and you sprinkle it in all corners of the house.Sprinkle it around – that’s to keep your home holy.  Or, if you got a store,that’s to keep your store holy – keep you out of trouble and ‘cumulate – [also]make you ‘cumulate things around your home.  You see, that holy water is blestby de priests and things and then it’s blest by the Lord, you see.
Vol.2,p.1634 Informant in New Orleans

Another one from Hyatt, but also kind of an obvious thing. Use Holy Water. It should be easy to procure, especially if you are already Catholic, but you can also walk into some churches and they will have some available for the faithful.
Simply sprinkle holy water around your home or business to keep it holy. This holiness can achieve many results from protection, peace, bringing good luck, helping to resolve problems etc.

Days of Cyprian Day 6

Carry Psalm 65 in your wallet to protect and bring you money

I don’t remember where I found this, but it is something that I have had for a long time. Basically every time I get a new wallet, I do this again.

On a small sheet of paper, write down Psalm 65 by hand. You can use both sides, but you need it all fit on one sheet of paper. Fold it up neatly, and place it in your wallet. I recommend carrying in a pocket that doesn’t get disturbed much, that is you don’t take cards out of it very often, and you’re not always taking money in and out. Carrying this Psalm in your wallet with protect your money and draw money to you. 

1Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be performed.
2 O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.
3 Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.
4 Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.
5 By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea:
6 Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; being girded with power:
7 Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people.
8 They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens: thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
9 Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.
10 Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.
11 Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.
12 They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side.
13 The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.

Days of Cyprian – Day 5

Use the 23rd Psalm to influence your boss

You know de boss’s name.  All right. Call ‘im soon in de mawin’ befo’ de sun’s risin’.  Understan’ me, don’t have anything else on yore mind.  Have yo’ a secrut prayer to God befo’ de sun rise.  Git on yore knees an’ pray David’s prayer, “De Lord is mah shepherd an’ ah shall not want.” 

Ah’ll guarantee dat yo’ll go out an’ git it.  “De Lord is mah shepherd an’ ah shall not want.”   Yo’ know how to read de 23rd Psalms of David? 

    An’ in readin’ dat den [demonstrates].

    (Fold your hands up over your head.)

    Uh-huh.    Dat means, “My Lord, My God, has thou forsaken me?”     Call His (sic) name three times jest fo’ three mornin’s.  Handle ‘im jest like yo’ kin dis hat chere [my hat on  the tale – (The boss for the job?) Yes sir.

Vol.2,pp.1603-4

This working also comes from Hyatt and is from an informant named Dr. Stone from Waycross, GA.

For three consecutive mornings, rise before sunrise.
With your mind focused in prayer, clasp your hands together over your head and pray the 23rd Psalm.
Then call the name of the person who is the boss at work three times.
You will then be able to handle that boss, and they will comply with your wishes.

I have used this once and my boss gave me a raise shortly thereafter. If you know who is the boss and trying to get a job, you can use this, but you can also influence the boss at the job you already have to help things.

Days of Cyprian – Day 4

This is a practice that I recently read about although I had done it before.

There is a growing movement of people who are not necessarily aligned with the Catholic church, or any church per se, who are taking to praying the rosary for 9 days at a time. It is called the Way of the Rose.
It has an interesting back story and some books associated with it, and there are groups who gather to do it in person, or in this time of Covid et al, via video conferencing, and pray the Rosary together. You can google it (Just search Way of the Rose, you’ll find something) and you can learn more.

The rosary was something I learned about in college, although I had always found them interesting accessories. I had been wanting to collect them since I was a teenager, and in college, there happened to be a woman who was Catholic working on campus. I was wearing my rosary, and she gave me pamphlet explaining the traditional means of praying with it, the prayers associated with each section, and how during praying it, depending upon the part of the liturgical year, one would meditate upon different events and things in the bible, with most of it being about the birth, life, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus the Christ. I found it interesting and later through my own study I learned that a popular bit of church art, the 13 stations of the cross, are often integrated with rosary practice, with people praying the rosary while moving from station to station at the same time in churches and chapels that have those stations depicted. This led me to praying the rosary periodically just because. Many times I felt a presence and a growing nearness to God but I didn’t really think anything of it other than, if you pray the rosary often you receive a plenary indulgence ie a get out of hell/purgatory for free card because of this devotion. Later I would learn that doing the rosary or having a mass for the dead was also a way to help free others from purgatory, and I would use it while doing work with the dead and ancestors. Then I came across the Way of the Rose, and the many testimonies of people who had prayed for a multitude of things, from getting a job to protection in very difficult situations to just finding a new couch which seemed to happen in response to their action of praying the rosary, once a day for nine days.

That is the working I offer to you. You can achieve anything. Just pray the Rosary once a day for nine days, and your prayers will be fulfilled.

Days of Cyprian – Day 3

Another from Hyatt’s collection.

If yo’ runnin’ a house fo’ runnin’ cards, or othah special work, an’ yo’ cain’t git much trade dere.  [She is speaking about her own professional work.  The running cards means telling fortunes; othah special work, any type of hoodooism.] 

  Yo’ git up an’ go to de drug sto’ an’ buy yo’ a bottle of Hawthorne Perfume.  Yo’ take an’ come back an’ take yo’ a little tin top.  Git ovah dat an’ repeat de Lord’s prayer an’ take yo’ a little tin top [top of a tin can] an’ burn de Hawthorne Perfume in de middle of de flo’ wit de sugah, an’ dat will draw peoples to yo’.  Dat’s whut ah did when ah wus ‘way from home [on professional business] – it would draw peoples to yo’ an’ yo’ could explain to ’em whut chew want explained.

Vol.2,p.1584

In clearer language, if you are running a business for doing readings (especially with cards) but also doing workings, hoodoo, etc.. take a bottle of Hoyt’s cologne (It says Hawthorne Perfume, but Hyatt didn’t always understand his interviews accents and this was one of those confusions, because he was also unfamiliar with some products sold at the time) and you need just a metal container. The informat says to get a tin container that probably once held food or something but in my experience any metal dish will work. Modern day canned food now has a plastic lining on it, which will burn and stink if you try to use it in this, unless you remove the plastic first, so you want something metal that isn’t plastic coated. Place that in the middle of your place of business, Put some sugar in it (she doesn’t say how much, so, do what feels right to you. Put some hoyt’s cologne on it, and light it on fire and and pray the Lord’s prayer over it, and that will attract clients to you. The informant indicates that she did this when she was away from home, but it also works in your home if your business is in the home.

I have done this a few times and besides it being very entertaining watching the alcohol burn, and it also causes some of the sugar to caramelize, it also smells good. I do have one recommendation. When it is done, and you can touch the metal item again, you should deploy the now worked caramelized sugar by sprinkling it around the front door of your place of business. An X mark or a five point (like the five dots on a six sided die) under your welcome mat works well for this too.

Days of Cyprian – Day 2

This working is something I found in the collection of Harry M Hyatt spells. I have had lots of success with this working.

Yo’ use holy watah, an’ say fo’ instance – if a person dat is come into

yore place lak dat an’ dey come with a bad heart towards yo’ or somethin’ of

de kind – or come talkin’ some kind of foolish talk or cross-talk whut chew

don’t wanta heah talk of – or make confusement or somethin’ of de kind –

well, yo’ use holy watah in dat like manner, yo’ understan’, so dat as

everyone

come in, dey’ll come wit a good spirit, yo’ see.

Yo’ll take holy watah. Now, yo’ll put three spoons of white sugah in

dere, if yo’ have mostly, say, fo’ de white people. Lak it’s fo’ de colored

people, yo’ll put three spoons of brown sugah. Now, yo’ll place dat in de

bottle of holy watah.

Now, yo’ll jis’ place dat up on a shelf or anywhere roun’ about into

yore place. Now, ever’body dat come in dere dey’ll speak nice an’ come wit a

good spirit yo’ see.

Somepin of de kind is confusement in de home or raisin’ Sam or speakin’

ugly words of somethin’ of de kin’. Yo’ jis’ take dat bottle down an’ jis’

drop a little bit on de flo’ – jis’ throw a little bit on de flo’.

Ever’thin’ is all ovah right dere.

(You use that same bottle of holy water for that – what you told me

about before?)

Yessuh.

[Algiers, LA; Informant #1583 – Nahnee the “Boss of Algiers”; Vol.2,p.1382

A clearer explanation of this is that you take a bottle of holy water and you add three spoonfuls of sugar to it. Place the bottle in there place where people will be gathering and it will ensure that everyone gathers in goodwill and happiness. If things start to get heated or someone becomes argumentative, open the bottle and spill out a bit and it will calm things down.

This WORKS. I can especially recommend it if you have hot headed and argumentative family coming to your home for the holidays, or if you are going to their home, or you’re all meeting someplace. It will cut down on the conflict and get everyone to just get along fine, and if things start to get too dramatic, just discretely pour some out and it will calm down right away. I used this for many years for expressly that purpose and it worked so well. This also makes a good sneaky trick for offices or just any time you know that tempers will be high. If it’s something you leave up constantly, you’ll want to check it to see if the water has gone bad (ie cloudy with mold and gack) and you will want to replace it.
