With the first and middle fingers, trace a pentagram over the object to be protected. Visualize electric blue or purple flame streaming from your fingers to form the pentagram. Say this as you trace:
With this pentagram I lay
Protection here both night and day.
And the one who should not touch,
Let his fingers burn and twitch.
I now invoke the law of three:
This is my will,
So mote it be!
