News: Financial Blessing Spiritual Service, January 21 2018

On January 21, we will performing our first Financial Blessing Service!
 
What Is A Spiritual Service?
A Spiritual Service is a ritual made for a group of customers, as opposed to Custom Candlework/Spellwork, which is made only for one – hence the much lower price. The ritual usually consists of offerings to the Spirits (candles, drinks, food, incenses, flowers, etc.), prayers (traditional to Espiritismo, and my own), drumming/music sessions, etc. The purpose of the ritual can be as varied as Custom Spellwork is.
 
What Is This Service For?
· To attract good luck, opportunities, good customers, expansion and recognition, and financial blessings of every kind into your life;
· To bring you special protection against financial loss, competition, job safety, job security, etc;
· To empower your financial goals and ambition, to help you achieve those goals, and to help you find new goals if needed;
· To bless your business if you already have it, and make it grow powerfully and quickly;
· To remove whatever is no longer a blessing in your financial life, and release burdens and negative environments and relationships.

News: Spiritual Service Calendar For 2018

This is a calendar of the Spiritual Services that we will be performing for customers this year. There will be one Blessing Service per quarter, since this is our customers’ absolute favourite, two Services devoted to our Ancestors (the Ancestral Mothers Service and the Noche De Animas Service), and three themed Services that will be performed twice during the year: the Financial Blessing Service, the Love Healing Service, and the Spiritual Empowerment Service. Please read details on each one below!

January 21 – Financial Blessings Service – Participations will be open from January 2 to January 20.

The Financial Blessings Service is a Service for material prosperity and growth at all levels. If you want to improve your finances, make your business grow, and bring in the opportunities you need, you need to start the year strong with the support of Spirits!

February 21 – Love Healing Service  – Participations will be open from February 1 to February 20.

The Love Healing Service is focused on the empowerment and strengthening of relationships – love relationships, but also family relationships, and even friendships. You choose the relationship you want to empower, and we provide the healing, loving energy that all relationships need to thrive.

March 21 – Spring Equinox Blessing Service – Participations will be open from March 1 to March 20.

Our Blessing Service is our customers’ favourite – and this year we will have one on each Solstice and Equinox! This Service is focused on receiving blessings of all kinds from the Spirits, and on cleansing negativity and residual energy from the previous period of the year.

April 21 – Spiritual Empowerment Service – Participations will be open from April 2 to April 20.

The Spiritual Empowerment Service is focused on the cleansing and strengthening of your spiritual/magical abilities, and is designed with spiritual practitioners in mind. If you feel you need a better connection to your Spiritual family, a more powerful magical practise, and the cleansing of residual negativity, this Service is right for you!

May 21 – Ancestral Mothers Service – Participations will be open from May 1 to May 20.

This is the first Service of the year that is focused on Ancestral worship, specifically the Ancestral Mothers lineages. The Spirits of your personal ancestral lines, and the Great Mother herself, will be honoured in this Service, so you can receive their blessings and protection.

June 21 – Summer Solstice Blessing Service (As Above) – Participations will be open from June 1 to June 20.

July 21 – Financial Blessings Service II (As Above) – Participations will be open from July 2 to July 20.

August 21 – Love Healing Service II (As Above) – Participations will be open from August 1 to August 20.

September 21 – Autumn Equinox Blessing Service (As Above) – Participations will be open from September 3 to September 20.

October 31 – Noche De Animas Service – Participations will be open from October 1 to October 30.

This Service, which ties to a Canarian spiritual traditions, honours the Dead, and all our Ancestral ties. This Service has broken participation records each time for three years in a row!

November 21 – Spiritual Empowerment Service II (As Above) – Participations will be open from November 2 to November 20.

December 21 – Winter Solstice Blessing Service (As Above) – Participations will be open from December 3 to December 20.

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.

· 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.

Magical Crafts: Guia Necklace For The Tres Potencias

A very special project was finished today – a Guia Necklace for the Tres Potencias, the highest Spirits in my path of Espiritismo. The colours of the Tres Potencias are the same of Venezuela’s flag – yellow, red, and blue, a combination that is not easy to put together when making jewelry. The necklace features a gorgeous moon shaped mother of pearl pendant, Moroccan Blue Czech glass beads, and fifty-two handpainted wooden beads.
Yes, I handpainted each one. Several times XD.
I will use it during ritual, but for now, it is looking quite lovely on the altar, getting filled with energy! If you want to know more about Guia Necklaces, you can do so at this post from last June:

Visual Inspirations: Spirit Doll Photoshoot

The pictures I posted on yesterday’s post about Spirit dolls were taken at the studio table, which has great light for working, but is not the nicest setting to showcase the work done on this doll. So, today I did a little staging with shells, feathers, and one of my favourite silk scarves, and as you can see, this looks so much better – the early morning light was warm and perfect for the powerful colours of the clothing.

Magical Crafts: Dressing A Spirit Doll

The doll’s headdress features rhinestone chains, beading, tulle flowers, and a lovely paisley print from vintage clothing. The pendant is real silver and moonstone, and it was the gift of a fellow dollmaker. It is entirely hand stitched from start to finish (no glue is one of my work’s trademarks).

In many, many cultures, dolls are seen as talismans and Spirit vessels – many of the religions of the African diaspora use them, and so does Espiritismo. This is a subject I know really extensively, because I have been an enthusiast of dolls and of textile arts for almost two decades, and I am quite an expert doll seamstress.

This year, I wanted to make a new set of clothing for a doll that I share with one of my Spirit Guides. In Espiritismo, dolls can be used as Spirit vessels, but when we speak of Spirit vessel we talk about a physical object that is spiritually owned by the chosen Spirit, and that improves the communication with them. This has nothing to do what people (stupidly) call a haunted doll. There is no such thing in the African Diaspora as a haunted doll, and any resemblance to that is as much a Hollywood invention as Voodoo dolls, zombies, etc. Our dolls are an homage of our love for Spirits, and a gift to them, that we craft to the highest standards.

The beading of the belt. The teardrop-shaped beads were hand dyed  by me, and the lace of the belt is Valencia lace, which is a Spanish type of handmade bobbin lace. Absolutely exquisite!

The same Valencia lace, on the lower edge of the skirt. The patchwork fabric was entirely hand stitched too.

I rarely make fixed sets for my dolls, so what you will see in the pics is how the doll looks as of now – I’d much rather build a wardrobe where I can mix and match, so unless something is made for a specific occasion, clothing sets are always open to change and improvement.

Very often, I work on the headdress while it is on, to place ornaments exactly where they should go. Here, I am affixing the rhinestone chains. As you can see, no glue!

There is no dress code in Maria Lionza’s religion – since many Espiritistas are also Lukumi, dressing in full white is very common, but this is not a fixed rule at all; in a Misa Blanca, you will find a complete rainbow of extremely flamboyant clothing, that depends only on the personal preference of the wearer, and very often of the rule they will carry during the ritual. Mediums that will be possessed by specific entities usually wear fantastic clothing in the colours of their Spirit, so they can dance and show off as they deserve; but those who do the more mundane work (like musicians, cooks, assistants, etc.) wear more comfortable clothing, and just special jewelry.

How the doll looks so far. I really, really love this. The colours are just singing!

So, each one of these pieces is a completely fantasy creation, which shows my love for traditional costume, and for the Spirit who Guides me. Sometimes, I get a direct request for a dress in a colour combination, or for a type of hairstyle – but, most of the time, I do whatever my inspiration and instinct ask me to do, because the doll does not need to imitate the Spirit’s look,  style, or ritual attire. For me, this is a completely sacred work, that I hold as high a standard as any other side of my Spiritual Work – and also, something that ties me deeply to my family heritage, since I am the third generation of clothing makers in my family, and I want to make my Ancestors proud :).
