...separated from you by a great distance. Make a weak tea of sage and soak a piece of plain white paper in it for a few minutes, then place it on a flat surface where it will dry overnight. The following day, write the person's name on the paper three times and set it aside.
Anoint a green candle with oil and roll it in a mixture of sage, yarrow, and peony. Place the name-paper under the candle. Light the candle and say:
Beyond my reach and out of sight,
but still within my mind and heart;
keep him safe by day and night,
protect this child now set apart!
Let the candle burn itself out. Repeat as needed each month at the full moon.
Note: This is the spell I cast to protect Kaleb when Robert sent him back to South Carolina until he gets out of the military in a few weeks and rejoins him.
