The Witches of England were experts in repelling a deadly enemy. In 1588, when Spain was intent on conquering England, English Witches gathered on the cliffs of Dover and chanted a spell, You shall not cross, You shall not cross and the Spanish Armada turned back.

During World War II the English Witches stood on the cliffs again and repeated, You shall not cross, You shall not cross and Hitler never did get to occupy London.

Let us carry on this tradition, and help protect our country. Let every Witch in America join in a version of the English Witch Chant. I suggest the following wording, because it is non-manipulative and yet protective, because it affirms that the Goddess works through us and because some of the enemy has already crossed the waters.

Let every coven join in, and every solitary. We can use it with the four directions, or simply look up at the sky. For those of us who do this work, lets also raise the Cone of Power, and direct it at Washington, as representative of the entire country.

Oh Goddess, work through us this charm: No one shall cross to do us harm! And So Mote It Be.

Words of Power Statement for Peace and Safety in the World

Non-Sectarian Version:

There is One Universal Power
Which is perfect peace and perfect safety
And I (your name here) am a perfect manifestation of this Power
I call on, and I join with, the Universal Power to manifest perfect peace and safety in the world
For the good of all
According to free will.
All terrorism, all war, all fighting, all destruction is totally released and has no negative power and there is no negative power in this seeming to be impossible
Instead, The Infinity of Solution works perfectly to bring about perfect peace and safety for all
And so this must be!

Judeo-Christian Version:

There is One God
Who is perfect peace and perfect safety
And I (your name here) am a perfect manifestation of God on Earth
God works for and through me to manifest perfect peace and safety on Earth
For the good of all
According to free will.
I call on God to release war, suffering and injustice in the world, and I release any worry or fear that these negative things are inevitable or that they are "necessary evils"
I affirm my confidence in The Infinity of Solution, and I call on The Infinity of Solution to bring about perfect peace and perfect safety for all
Amen.

(Note: "Amen" means the same thing as "And so it must be.")
