En Hexeschpiggel

A Hexeschpiggel ("witches mirror") is a protective item that one may carry on oneself or keep static in the home. Any mirror will suffice. Some people also use ornamental glass balls for the same purpose in one's yard.

A Hexeschpiggel is fairly easy to make with simple intention to function as a static, sympathetic protection charm... You may use an actual mirror, a pendant of glass or some stones (quartzite works well). 

Typically one places the Hexeschpiggel flat on a table, and places ones own fluid (saliva is ample) in a triangle form, starting in a clockwise pattern staring at a point farthest from oneself (one's body should be on a side of the triangle, not at a point). Thus, one of the points would be on the opposite end your body. Draw the first line down on the mirror toward the right, then the second line will form the angle to your right and go off to the left. Then the third line will go from your left back to the originating point, which is the point that represents the casting back of any negative energy.

Below is one chant that has been passed to me by Hexerei practitioners. Typically the chant is said in groups of three, while continuing to draw the triangle. The items in brackets [ ] represent two slightly different versions of this same charm that were presented by the practitioners. 

Schpiggel, Schpiggel
mei Zauberei
Beschitz mir vun
beeser Hexerei
Schpiggel, Schpiggel
Sicher hald mich
Wann die mir kummt
Schick [die][graad] zerick
Zauber Nacht
Schpiggel, Schpiggel
mei Freindschaft
Beschitz mir vun
aller Feindschaft

Mirror, Mirror
My magic
Guard me from 
wicked Hexerei
Mirror, Mirror
Safe hold me
When she (referring to wicked Hexerei) to me comes
Send [her][straight] back
Mirror, Mirror 
my Kin 
Guard me from 
every Foe.
