When you’re in both the spiritual world and the physical world alike, the ability to protect ya neck (yourself, word to WuTang) is like the most important thing ever ! Not in a paranoid way where you’re always looking over your shoulder but protection by being proactive and using discernment. This blog will give you 5 super simple ways to stay protected from negative spirits and energy.
So As Above Is Below…
…or something. I can never remember how exactly it goes. But it means that something done physical manifests in the spiritual realm and vice versa is true too. For example, you wash your hands before you clean your altar. Physical cleanliness vs spiritual cleanliness. It really mirrors each other.
Spiritual Baths To Protect
Spiritual baths can be taken weekly for excellent spiritual maintenance. They can also be taken 3 to 7 days in a row when you’re dealing with a specific situation that you need protected in. The more severe or dangerous, the more consecutive days you’ll need. Now that we have indoor plumbing and bath tubs, you can actually run yourself a nice warm bath with candles, incense, music vibes and charmed herbs. If you wanna go all the way back to your hoodoo roots, just throw your herbs in a bowl, pray a psalm and pour it over your head when you feel like you really need it.
Additionally, foot baths are cool. If you have a pedi bowl, that’s a plus. If your grandmas were/are like mine, you’ve always been told that you need a hat and socks ESPECIALLY to stay warm. That’s due to those being the two spots that heat leaves the quickest. Same for your energy. You absorb and deplete energy easiest from your head and feet. Thus, foot baths are just as effective as head dunks.
Protect Ya Neck Oil
Sometimes an oil is just more convenient than a bath. It does the same thing but the oil can be taken with you and just applied in tiny amounts to your skin as needed. Protection oil can also be shared or added to things like your car or wallet so in that sense, it’s more versatile too. My Protect Ya Neck Charmed Oil is currently out for product testing but it’s looking promising so far ! Remember where energy transfers most, the head and feet. So those are great places to apply the oil. You can also add the oil to your own baths (or spiritual baths).
Salt is one of the simplest yet most powerful protection herbs there is. It will also do whatever you tell it to, it’s an empty vessel. Put salt into small bowls with other a slice of lemon or lime and place the bowls in the corners of your home. It’ll absorb any negative energy and you can just throw it out and add more salt weekly ! If you’re feeling extra fancy, add other protective herbs too.

A Bucket Of Water
Water is excellent at carrying and holding energy. To get rid of the energy in your home, leave a huge bucket of water in the center. You can also do this for one room at a time. Move close enough to the water to where it causes ripples when you speak and ask it to collect the negative energy for you. Throw it out after 24 or 48 hours. Pouring it in the grass is best because Mother Gaia (planet earth) will transmute the negative energy to something more helpful.
Last and possibly my personal favorite, you can play YouTube tracks energetically programmed with protective energy. Sapien Medicine and Dream Seeds have many different kinds and they’re a brand I trust and can vouch for. You can also look up live reiki for protection on YouTube . Remember that virtually anybody can upload anything so always do your due diligence and use your discernment. This is definitely an area where what you don’t know CAN hurt you.
