I have been using protection pennies in my space warding for years now, and I find them to be a really useful aspect to my home wards. They are very simple and one dimensional, so they work best layered with other warding or protection practises. However, I do find them to be useful as a physical representation of protection.
- shiny and clean pennies, one for each threshold that you wish to protect
- salt, you can also use green or black salt
- conker shells, or something else that is symbolic of protection
- a black permanent marker
- warding & protection sigils
Take your pennies and wipe them over so that the surface is clean. Then, use your black marker to draw warding and protection sigils on the tail side of them.
Once the ink has dried on these, place them in or on something that you associate with a protective home. I used halves of a spiky conker shell, which there are lots of during this time of year. You could also use snail shells or sea shells, just make sure you are obtaining these ethically.
Cover your pennies with salt, you can make black salt for this step. This is where conker shells come in handy as they act as little bowls for the salt and the pennies.
Leave to charge for a little while, preferably under a dark or waning moon. Once they are charged, place the pennies above doorways, entrances and windows in your home. Ensure that your space is already cleansed before you place them.
Recharge periodically, either under the moon, with salt or with quartz crystals.
