Blessing Your Boundaries
from Moon Magick by D.J. Conway
February is the perfect month to renew your protection of your home and property by blessing your boundaries. By blessing your boundaries you can strengthen your protection against intruders of all kind. If you can walk the boundaries of your property do, if you live in an apartment then plan to walk through each room.

Outside
:For walking the boundaries outside and blessing them take a bowl of cornmeal hold it up to the Sun [if you do this during the day] or Moon [if you do it at night] ask the Gods to bless it for you. Begin to the left of your driveway or entrance move clockwise [to the right] lightly sprinkling the corn meal as go. Chant:
Blessings and honor to all who guard my boundaries. Blessings and thanks for your help and protection. May my property and dwelling be safe under your care. I offer you friendship and blessings.”

When you come to the starting point sprinkle the cornmeal once more across the drive or entrance path. This acts as a double seal. If possible build a small special place in full view of your entrance as a home for your guardians. It can be a collections of rocks, small patch of herbs or group of flowering bushes.

Inside
Prepare a chalice or glass of pure water and a small plate of salt. If you have an altar take these and ask for their blessings by the gods other wise hold up to the moon or Sun for blessing. Sprinkle three pinches of salt into the chalice and swirl the chalice three times clockwise. Being near the front door of your dwelling lightly sprinkle the water salt mixture across the door moving clockwise. Chant while sprinkling: “Blessings and honor to all who guard my dwelling boundaries. Blessings and thanks for your help and protection. May my dwelling place be safe under your care. I offer you friendship and blessings.”

Continue through each room in this manner until you have completely encircled your dwelling. Sprinkle the mixture across the threshold again. Create a small special place for your guardian facing your entrance, this can be a bowl of stones, dried flower arrangement or a special statue.
