Simple candlework for protection

Ideally for this you should really make your own candle melt, so I’ll explain first a couple of ways how to do that and then, if you cannot do that, you can simply use a black candle (solid colour not dipped).

To make your own:

Ecosoy wax flakes (100g should be plenty for 2/3 melts) and 5g of black candle dye, or alternatively break off a black candle and melt it again. You can then pour it in a specific wax melt container or use rubber molds (THIS IS AN EXAMPLE ) Melt safely in a heatproof container (a Pyrex jug  is fine if melting the wax over water or you can buy a more professional candle wax melting pot).

Whichever way you use once melted then add:

– dried rosemary ( a couple of pinches)

– 4 drops of mandrake oil

– a pinch of ground nutmeg

– 4 drops of rose essential oil

Let it set properly (usually overnight) then use by melting slowly in an oil burner. Once used you can easily take off the hardened wax by putting the burner in the fridge for about 10 minutes.

This is something I LOVE to do (please be careful though!) because although I love buying ready-made candles, it simply adds to the ritual of making “special candles” like protection ones or spell candles.

Why wax melts and not candles you may ask?? Well because they are EASIER to make and the end result is the same ;), enjoy!


Healing with Archangel Michael

A few days ago I participated in a shamanic group clearing to bid farewell to 2013 and welcome 2014, this year for me has been one of the worst, one thing after another…so I decided clearing would be a good idea and I love shamanic drumming anyway.

 AA Michael appeared while during a healing in a shamanic journey I was performing for the person I was partnered with (we both worked alone and in pairs), the focus was to ask what this person needed healing with or rid of. When it was my turn to journey for him I just kept seeing this Royal Blue light and was told I had to “shroud” this person in it and help heal. Then, after a while, this bright red orb appeared over his solar plexus chakra and stayed there. Then a voice suggested I tell him to keep healing he had to remember “Blue” and “Healing Words”. After I told him, he said he had issues with communication and had been meaning to “write” a book about his healing experiences for a while and was told so a few times but never summoned up the courage. He also said this will help a lot in deciding how to move forward 🙂 . I mentioned AA Michael presence and he was comforted, I also told him to keep protected and grounded, for I felt that was also part of the message.

Very grateful 😀

Samhain (Halloween) Spells and Candle Magic

It’s that time of the year again, the 18th of October is the next Full Moon and we also have 2 eclipses occurring this month, one lunar and one solar. To be honest the energies have been all over the place for me this year but let’s concentrate on good things :).

Here I give you 2 examples of a Full Moon simple candle ritual for attracting prosperity and a simple Tarot spell for getting rid of negativity (to be done after Full Moon in the waning phase).

Full Moon Candle ritual for prosperity:

– Green candle

– sea salt (or kosher salt)

– Attraction Oil (or if unavailable simple olive oil will do)

– chopped dried basil leaves

Anoint the candle with the oil by rubbing it TOWARD yourself in one direction only. State your intention and what you want to attain (it is better to speak out this loudly but you can think it too if you prefer). Do this for a couple of minutes. Mix the basil with some of the salt and rub on the candle (again in one direction toward yourself), light the candle and, if possible, let it burn until extinguished.

Tarot spell for clearing negativity:

– Black candle

– Black obsidian (or black tourmaline)

– Rosemary incense (or Sandalwood if not available)

– A Tarot deck

Light the incense. Cleanse the candle by imagining it covered in white light and all the negativity cleared from it, do this until you feel it is thoroughly cleansed. Light the candle. Lay the crystals next to it. Now take out from your Tarot deck the following 3 cards: Death, 8 of Cups, 6 of Swords. Lay the cards one after the other beside (but not too close for safety!) the candle and incense. State loudly what you want to clear, get rid of or what you want to move away from. Leave this setting untouched until the candle is fully extinguished.

I will post some more Halloween spells towards the end of the month :), you can also take the short Tarot Spells course I offer directly from my website.

So what do you do when…

An uninvited guest (spirit in this case) won’t go away or is getting a bit too pesky?

Here are some tips:

– burn a white or pink candle. Cleanse it and bless it with oil (olive oil will do if it’s all you have else you can use Altar oil or Candle oil). Ask while you bless it for it to help cleanse the surroundings from all negative energies.

– leave half a glass of water with some agar-agar powder in each room.

– sprinkle kosher (or pure sea salt) in each room, in every corner (this method is not indicated if you have a haunting or a particular negative entity around since you would simply be locking  it in).

– rose is a favourite Angel scent. So burn it in the form of incense, oils or whatever takes your fancy.

– get a smudge stick (if you haven’t one) and smudge each room thoroughly, for this sage or rosemary work best.
