Things you will need:
A jar (Or bottle)
some sort of way to cover the jar in scales. You could paint them on, use clay and glue them on, or use paper with scales drawn onto it and wrap it around your jar.
Maybe some jerk seasoning for extra oomph
An item that is either connected to you or whoever you want to protect
Step one: Set your circle or barrier. Then you are going to want to make the jar covering to represent the scales. While making these whether its painting, drawing or making clay scales, you’ll want to focus your intent into it, channeling your energy into an impenetrable barrier. If you have any dragon spirits that you would like to work with for this and ask their assistance, you may do that here.
Step two: Wrap your “scales” around the outside of the jar (or bottle). Think of it being locked into place and it is now is a powerful barrier that cannot be broken through.
Step three: place your seasonings inside, focusing on them. As you put them in the jar imagine that they are simmering with powerful fire that will activate and lash out against the person who tries to go after/hurt the one you have chosen to protect. If you feel like you don’t want to have your personal item or your loved one’s personal item within that you can take a brush and dust that powder along the edges of the jar or you can put your own barrier or sigil on the object to try to give it some extra. But ultimately think of it like dragon fire that goes after those who try to trespass onto a dragons territory or harm those it is protecting.
Step four: Place your object of choice in the jar and as you do so chant this:
“In my protection you shall be
On darkened night or stormy sea
With dragon scale I guard you well
Against the evil tides that swell
No harm shall come to you with me
With dragon fire I set you free”
Step five: place the lid back on the jar. Then channel more energy into it picturing it “sealing” shut. If you would like you can use a candle and melt wax over the lid to close it but I am personally going to keep mine open so I can either modify anything inside or reuse the jar but protect someone/something else.
Note: You can personalize with your own twist depending on if you work with your own dragon spirit. I anointed my jar with some storm water too since I work with a storm dragon. =^-^=
