A Blessing of Protection. A blessing to shield ad safeguard you against harsh circumstances, people, and weather.
May the blessing of an ancient sword be yours, held high and shining, subduing all who may through intent or simple destructive force do you harm. May a great shield be held above you, so that when arrows rain down on you, they may glance off, leaving you untouched, unharmed, but with the great glad fierce joy of life given again to you. May the protection of the land beneath you be yours, so your feet are firm on the good earth, and all good food rises and finds its way to your table, again and again. May your home, your creatures, your children, and all who dwell within your walls be sheltered and encircled with a ring of bright flame by the Goddess and let nothing that could harm you pass.
And if you leave your home, let the path you walk be starred with blessings, so that each touch of the earth upon your feet is gentle, and safe, and certain. May the Rowan Tree grow strong above you, and beneath her branches may there be protection, and with those gentle leaves come the blessings of kindness, tolerance, acceptance and the embrace of Nature and her medicine within you. May the cloak of the Goddess be about you, keeping you warm, and safe, shielded and sheltered, hidden from those who would do you harm, comforted and encouraged to keep going, for beneath her shield, with her sword held high, within that circle of blue flame, and with her blessing upon your path, you are protected, and blessed, and from this you must know how precious and beloved you are to her.
