Three small pine branches (a few feet in length)
To rid your local area/house/yard of evil, wait until night and go out into your garden.
Then, cut three small pine branches, a few feel long, or find three fern fronds.
Circle your garden with these slowly and call forth all the powers and spirits of your garden in whatever words feel good to you. Express your hurts and fears and ask for help from the Earth Mother.
Then "sweep" the house with these branches or fronds, pushing all the dark energies out the front door forcefully, saying: OUT! OUT! AVERT! AVERT! EVIL OUT IS-- ALHIZ! ALHIZ!
Throw the branches away. Make sure wherever you throw them is off your property and away from where you are.
