Reflections: When You Don’t Get What You Want

Today, I had a conversation with a dear customer who was going through a very rough moment. This conversation inspired this reflection, that I wish will bring some hope to anyone feeling unheard by the Spirits right now.

In Espiritismo, spellwork is not a vending machine where you put a petition and get what you want. Being completely honest, I wish it was, because you are not born an Espiritista without wanting everyone to be as happy and free as they can be – if it was in my hands, I’d grant every petition. But, it does not work that way.

I completely understand that, when you feel your petition is not granted, you feel rejected and alone. I know how it feels, because I have been there too, but as I grew in my profession, I started to understand how destructive that thought was.

First, because the Spirits are not rejecting you – this world is. This world is unfair, filled with evil and injustice, and flawed to its very core. And while the Spirits may have great power, they cannot change that. If there is something you can be sure about, it is that the Spirits have nothing but love, compassion and acceptance for us, and want nothing but our happiness and growth. The Spirits DON’T reject – they give, and forgive, and empower, and protect, and advise.

Second, because you cannot see what the Spirits are actually doing for you; they always work in ways that are secret, and with a vision that goes much, much deeper and farther than ours. When you feel you are not getting what you want, it can be because there is something better in store for you, or because what you are asking for is so damaging for you that they will actually protect you from it. There might be a million reasons that we cannot even imagine. We may not ever see it, but there IS a reason. Spirits have self-awareness and free will, they don’t act randomly, and again, they are NOT rejecting you. The help of Spirits is not part of a meritocracy system – it is for everyone, without judgement.

The essential word to overcome these feelings of rejection is TRUST. No matter what the situation looks like, you are heard, and you are helped. The Spirits will not stop working on your behalf until you have reached your goal – once a petition is placed before them in the right way, they will honour the petition every single time.

News: Scarab Talisman Earrings

Following with the series of North African talismans that started with the Berber Earrings (all sold now, thanks so much!), the second series is for the Egyptian Scarab.

The Scarab is a talisman of protection, strongly related to the power of the Sun and to God Ra – as the ball of clay the Scarab creates rolls over and over, it represents not only the cycle of the Sun around the earth, but also the concepts of regeneration and healing.

Each Scarab bead was handsculpted, aged and patinaed individually. They were made in a custom Lapislazuli colour, and sculpted using proper historical references from the archives of El Cairo museum. As with all my pieces, the work is done under strict magical conditions, without mundane distractions, in a sacred space, and always after meditation sessions that provide inspiration and guidance. The work that was put in these beads means that a very powerful amount of energy lives in each one of them. May this amulet bless you and protect you!

Service Preparations: Pictures

A bundle of artisan cigars that have gone through the Sobado ceremony last week, wrapped in fragrant Lemongrass leaves and ready to be offered on Saturday, in our upcoming Spiritual Empowerment Service.

Smoked, burnt as incense, or used as an offering, tobacco is a sacred plant that opens the channels of Spirit, empowers the connection between worlds, and cleanses away negativity and parasitic entities – all perfect properties for our Service!

A small batch of Kyphi – we serve our regular Kyphi in almost every Service, but this one has been prepared with a custom recipe for the purpose of the Service – to strengthen the connection with Spiritual Guides, cleanse the channels of magical energy, and helping all participants achieve more control and power over their magical practise.

After spending the weekend cleaning the house from top to bottom, it’s time to begin the magical cleansing that will purify and empower the energy of the altar room. In the pic, over twenty herbs, barks, and roots, to be used in a floor wash daily until next Saturday. 100% of the ingredients were either homegrown at our sacred garden, or wildharvested in Nature – our customers deserve the best, and nothing but the best!

Remember, participations close on Friday 20! To purchase yours: https://www.brujacarolina.com/product/april-21-spiritual-empowerment-service

Customer Feedback From Previous Services:

“I received your summer solstice community ritual prayer and I’m just blown away by the most recent occurrences and I know it’s connected to the prayers and offering you performed. I received a large sum of money, my credit report improved, things in my finances have changed . I knew after reading your report that I made a wise choose. I could have picked anyone in the states but I was seeking a genuine healer, I been seeing the number 1111 (angels) alot since the ritual. I can’t thank you enough for your assistance and I will be joining the spiritual elevation service along with other services that you suggest again thank you!!”

“I asked Carolina to include me & two family members in her Blessing Service last December. My relatives were each struggling with challenges: one with the aftermath of a particularly nasty divorce & a very long streak of unemployment; the other with addictions issues, facing possibly additional prison time. As for me, the company where I worked for 10 years was falling into a state of chaos causing me & the other employees a great deal of stress & insecurity. As of April (4 months later), my unemployed relative found an exciting new job & sounds the most positive I have heard her in a long time. My other relative is also working, is maintaining sobriety & there appears there will be no additional time in prison. As for me-my company has stabilizing & I now go to work feeling at peace & happily productive. I have known Carolina via her work for many years. She is very professional, skilled, with a very high level of integrity. I am so very grateful to this dear lady for all that she does for so many”. L.H. (USA)

“Dearest Carolina, I wanted to let you know that the petition that was offered in this service to the Blessed Mothers Yemanya and Our Lady of Candelaria was granted! Initially, I was anxious about looking for a new home, but when I saw that you offered a petition service, the very day before I made my trip, I knew it came at the right time! I searched for several days for a new home and then a day before I was to return I suddenly felt that I was the ‘right’ place and the Blessed Mothers were with me. Thank you for your services! I have participated in services before and I will take part in more in the future. My prayers have been answered and I thank you for your love and devotion to making these rituals available for the rest of us! May you and yours continue to be blessed as you share these blessings with us! Adelina”

“I am messaging you to follow up on how things have been going for me since the service. First, I want to tell you Thank you very much! There has been such a turn around and a great relief in my situation and I credit your service with the Tres Potencias! Within a week of the service there was a weight lifted and a very noticable decrease in the amount of fear I had been experiencing, and now for the first time in a long time I have been able to breathe again even during trying situations. Since then I have also been reassigned a new job position with better hours and better opportunity, and in which I have been producing great work. I also have relocated and now, finally, found a place to live for me and my kids. For the first time in over a year I have been sleeping through the night where in the past i would wake up 4-5 times per night. With much gratitude I again thank you from the bottom of my heart! Much Love.” M.J., USA.

Customer Updates For The Holidays

· We will be working throughout the holidays; except for Monday Dec.25 and Monday Jan.1, slots for Spellwork and Readings will be available as always. I am not booked full yet, so for now, there should be no extra delay to get your Service performed.

· I have THREE slots for the Finding Your Soulmate Reading, and THREE for the Key To Spiritual Growth Reading. The first one is for customers who are having difficulties finding the right relationship, and the second for customers that want to improve and empower their Spiritual practise. The first lot of both readings sold out in a couple of days, so don’t miss your chance! Here is some feedback from customers who purchased one of these readings:

“Deep bow of gratitude to you and the Spirits for my reading yesterday. I have had readings from others over the years, but this one tops them all. As I read the pdf, tears streamed down my face; tears of joy and understanding. I felt a huge release of old energy, and for the first time I feel hopeful, that yes, I can fulfill my Spiritual Destiny. I also appreciate the simple ritual you included to help me deepen my connection with my Soul’s purpose and with my Spirit helpers. I can’t recommend your readings highly enough; I feel you are of the highest integrity and truly gifted. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.” M.R., USA.

“Carolina did a reading for me that was full of actionable information. I really appreciate that in a reading. The information provided was well clarified, made sense, seemed on point to me & the recommendations she gave were kind & easy to integrate in understanding. She made some recommendations, that once completed made pretty swift changes in my situation. I highly recommend Carolina as a reader & person. Her years of practice are evident and well worth the cost of the reading.” R.A., USA.

Visual Inspirations: Self-Care

After a very powerful talk with a customer, I made this graphic, which I hope will inspire you and empower you.
 
The year is about to end, we are all facing stressful times, and if want to survive and thrive, we absolutely need to be the strongest that we can be, the most badass version of ourselves. And that cannot happen without loving ourselves first – be your own lover, your best friend, your partner, your parent; only you can give yourself what you truly need.

Updates: A Message For My Readers

By the end of the year, I will be closing my art site, In The Garden Of Spirits. It’s been a wonderful year for my art, in which I have grown and evolved as a painter beyond my own expectations – after plenty of experimenting, and after going through the most excruciating (but most powerfully healing) soul-searching, I am going to enter a completely new chapter, and leave traditional painting behind to pursue an education (and, if the Gods provide, maybe a career in the future) in Fashion Design and Illustration.
 
Of course, this will not affect Bruja Carolina at all. I will continue to offer my services as usual, because I am making a long term plan, and I have no intention to switch careers until it is absolutely necessary. For now, I want to focus on my education first – I could not do this when I was younger, because I had to work since very early to provide for myself and my family; so, you really cannot imagine how important this is for me, and how excited I am right now.
 
And now is when I need your help. To be able to do this, I need Bruja Carolina to keep my bills paid, so I can give all my free time to the education I could never afford to have, and pay for my studies properly. If you are so inclined to make a donation to help me achieve this goal, just PM me and I’ll give you my Paypal address – but I am totally fine with orders, shares, or just your support <3 <3 <3!

Visual Inspirations: My Favourite Images From 2017

Through an entire year, I can take literally thousands of photographs. Between garden and wildharvesting documentation, spellwork and candle work reports for customers, and social media, there is hardly a day when I don’t use my camera.

For this post, I have selected my ten favourite pictures of my work through 2017, in no particular order. Enjoy the witchy eye candy!

1: Offering of herbal fumigation sticks, made using herbs from the garden. Most of them were offered in a Spiritual Service.

2: While cleaning the altar, a ray of evening light falls on the tiny Kwan Yinn statue.

3: One of the pictures taken for the Winter Rose Tonic post. Lavender, Marigold, Wild Rose, Lemon and Honey.

4: Making a batch of herbal powders for my Spellwork and Candle work. Each powder is made using over twenty ingredients, mostly herbs from our sacred garden, plus other magical elements like minerals, soil from sacred places, roots, seeds, etc.

5: A very special altar for the day of the Canary Islands, featuring the statue of the Guanche Goddess, shells and stones from places of power in the island, and two handmade cedar Chácaras (like castanets, but much bigger and rounder).

6: Consecrating an oil for anointing candles, for one of our Blessing Services.

7: An offering of wildharvested green figs and Catmint flowers from the garden.

8: Beautiful bottles for my magical oils – they deserve no less! Some purchased, some found, and one from a dearest friend.

9: Flower arrangement for my godchild’s birthday Henna party.

10: Image taken for the Objects Of Power post, of a cleansing and recharging session of energy for my healing gemstones.
