    Horseshoe


    Possibly the most famous of these charms is the horseshoe. Believed to repel witches from entering your house, as well as to bring good luck to all who pass, the horseshoe must be hung above your front door and may either be nailed facing up or down. This belief originated from 16th century English folklore and horseshoes continues to greet visitors to homes around the world.

    The Ba Gua mirror

    Ba Gua mirror above door

    The Ba Gua mirror, which originated in China, is a popular symbol in Feng shui. By placing one above the entrance to your main door, you are welcoming harmony and creating good fortune for all those that enter.

    Aside from welcoming harmony into your house and creating good fortune, the Ba Gua mirror is also a charm to counteract negative Qi of a spiritual nature, such as evil entities - so they may not enter your home.

    Modern wind chimes have their origins in Indian wind bells, which were later introduced to China, where they were eventually used to protect homes. Japanese glass wind bells known as Fūrin are thought to bring good luck too.

    Rowan

    In some Celtic beliefs, a cross made from the branches of the rowan tree and bound with red thread was used as a protective charm above the doors of houses. As stated in the old rhyme: "Rowan tree, red thread, holds the witches all in dread."

    Cinnamon sticks

    A more everyday object such as cinnamon sticks tied over the door will also protect your home. Long ago, this was used by Egyptians to make an area holy, and by the Chinese to purify temples.

    Rosemary wreath

    A wreath made of fresh rosemary tied with a green thread will also protect your home. As an added protection, insert these flowers: snapdragons, cyclamen, garlic flowers, marigolds, carnations or roses in intervals of three, seven or nine. Hang it on your door and even enjoy the fragrance!

    Door Gods

    Now... the door gods! This is a Chinese decorative cloth placed on each side of an entrance to a temple, home or business that is believed to keep evil spirits from entering. They always come in pairs and should be placed facing each other. The door gods are actually portraits of two generals, Qin Shubao and Yuchi Jingde, who lived during the time of Emperor Tang Taizong.
