Three Powerful Spellwork Tips

DSCN9706.JPG

Do you want to improve your spellwork skills? Here are three very powerful tips from someone who performs (literally) several hundreds of spells per year.
 
1: Magic will not work (fully or at all) if what you are asking is not good for you, because thank God, your Ancestors and your Cuadro Espiritual will stop it from happening. And believe me, you are very lucky that this law exists.
Solution: ALIGN with your Ancestors and your Cuadro, so you work together on your improvement, and watch those results fly.
 
2: Magic will not work (fully or at all) if what you are asking is a shortcut to something you should achieve with work. Magic empowers and amplifies your effort, but does not work for you, nor it will turn you into a different person.
Solution: COMMIT to yourself, become fully accountable, and do the fucking work it takes to become who you want to become. And yes, by all means, get magic to support that.
 
3: Magic cannot beat every single obstacle in one blow. That is like dieting for a day, and expecting to wake up the next morning with the body of a supermodel. Some things can only be chipped away until they are destroyed.
Solution: OPEN YOUR EYES, and stop whining about the Universe not giving you what you want. The Universe owes you nothing. Go get what you want yourself.

Spiritual Bath Recipe

DSCN4320

This month, our Ancestors are closer than ever, and receiving all their blessing and guidance is extremely important for our own elevation and growth; here is an easy recipe for a Spiritual Bath that you can do to empower and cleanse the energy channels between you and your Ancestors. You will need:
 
· The petals of three roses, in your favourite colour (mine is pink);
· A glass of Holy Water (not necessarily Catholic Holy Water);
· The tea made from cooking a large piece of fresh ginger root, about a glass;
· A handful of coarse salt, the best quality you can afford.
 
Fill your bath with water, and add all the ingredients. Remember, no soap – if you need to wash yourself, do that before the spiritual bath. Get in the bath, and ENJOY it – this is not a chore, this is a spiritual experience, and allowing joy to be a part of it is extremely important! Feel how the energy of the ingredients clean you, empower you, and elevate you – visualize the entire bath being made of golden light, washing away negativity and filling you with power.
 
Once you leave the bath, remember to allow the water to dry on your skin without scrubbing it off – if it’s too cold where you live, you can wear a robe, but it’s really important that you let the energy of the bath truly fuse with yours. Repeating it only enhances its effects – in my opinion, a weekly spiritual bath is a must in your self-care routine!

Colourway 1 – Two Pairs Available

DSCN2840

Colourway 2 – Two Pairs Available

I’ve been back to beading after a very long hiatus, and truly loving it like never before! These pieces are embroidered in felt, and were inspired by Guanche Pintaderas. They are, of course :), filled with powerful talismanic energy; beading is a meditative practise for me, just as painting or gardening, that is always done with mindful disposition. “Hobby” is a banal word that I’ve grown to dislike – I don’t do this to pass the time, or to make money; I do this to honour the creative urge in me, and its Divine Source.

Pintaderas were the signs used by my guanche Ancestors to decorate their homes, wares, and even as body paint. It is believed that they represented the Guanches’ cosmology, elements from Nature, and even family lineages (as a primitive coat of arms). Here are some examples from the Canarian Museum Of History:

I have two pairs available of each colourway – let me know if you are interested. 35€ per pair, international shipping included, payable through Paypal invoice.

Magical Crafts: Abundance Wreath

DSCN1252

I love to make special decorations for our Spiritual Services, that not only reflect the purpose of the Service itself, but also the seasons and their changes. For us, Autumn and Winter are vibrant, green, and filled with life – a perfect inspiration for the upcoming Financial Blessing Service on November 21, which will focus on abundance at all levels.

DSCN1255

DSCN1258

Starting with a blank wicker wreath, I added elements in green, gold, and red, the colours of wealth for me; berries for abundance, moss for healing, cinnamon for luck, bells for blessing, and of course, a beautiful candle to attract the power this Service needs. May it please the Spirits, and may it bring endless blessings on each of our customers!

New Series: Pictures Of The Week – 2018, Week 39

This post series features the best and most magical pictures I post during the week on social media (check links below). Hopefully, this will show how varied and devoted our work is, and how many different things we do in only seven days!

The Autumn Equinox brought us a lovely gift – this gorgeous Colonial-style piece of furniture for our altar, with plenty of storage space and room for all statues, and fabulous carvings of fruit wreaths. Courtesy of Romani neighbours who were throwing it away, which always means an extra pinch of luck :).
The week had a busy start, shipping the weekend’s orders, running errands, and preparing for the work of the week. Stopped by the local candle shop to get some Tres Reyes incense, a mixture of resins that they make for the churches of the island, and probably my favourite incense in the world. The first serving is, of course, for the spirit family.

Captured this lovely fat orb yesterday while taking pictures of the lovely gardens in the road of San Diego. It is one of my favourite places for walking, since it’s known as an area where Akelarres happened – in case you don’t know, Akelarre is the word for a reunion of Witches, a word from Basque language. FYI – the photograph was taken without flash, in the shade, and on extremely hot and dry weather. I am a very decent photographer, so I can assure that this is not a lens reflection of any kind. Not that I need this as a sign of Spirits around us, but it’s always nice when it happens :).

Flowers for the Spirit family, from the city’s farmer market. Fresh flowers and herbs are food for the Spirit, and a staple in Espiritismo’s practise. The carnation is one of the most cultivated flowers in the islands, and to me, a flower that represents joy and abundance – perfect to let Spirits know how much we love them.

A very happy addition to our herbal garden – this beautiful Laurel specimen. A tree of protection, banishing, and cleansing – a true holy warrior, and one of the most sacred trees of the islands; we have several endemic species of Laurel, which give their name to the Laurisilva forest, a unique type of prehistoric forest that is part of the Macaronesian islands (Canary Islands, Azores, Cape Verde and Madeira).

The end of the week caught us sorting and processing last week’s wildharvesting bounty, which was already dry.  In the pic above, Mastic Tree (Pistacia Lentiscus); in the one below, Canarian Wormwood (Artemisia Thuscula, endemic).

And finally, the weekend, which was spent working on the creation and consecration of a completely new Spiritual Bath for the shop: Siete Poderes. The purpose of this bath is to balance and restore your entire spiritual power, cleanse your energetic channels, and re-energize you completely. I am so happy with this product, and I’m sure our customers are just going to love it as much as I do. Check it HERE!

New Series: Pictures Of The Week – 2018, Week 38

This post series features the best and most magical pictures I post during the week on social media (check links below). Hopefully, this will show how varied and devoted our work is, and how many different things we do in only seven days!

Sunday found us at the beautiful Mesa Mota mountain, gathering herbs. First wildharvesting trip of Autumn. Harvested Eucalyptus, Heather, Saint John’s Wort, Juniper, Mastic Tree, and Fig Tree.

The wildharvesting bounty, being sorted in bundles and baskets to be set to dry. In a few days it will be ready to be part of our Apothecary, and of course of our spellwork and candlework for customers. What a blessed life.

New holy cards for Saint Cyprian and Saint Barbara – as I have posted before (check this post), I make them as part of my ministry as an Espiritista, and give them away to anyone who wants one. Of course, all orders this week have got one of each :).
As the summer ends, the lovely Alyssum is finally growing back, making the bees happy with its gorgeous honey-like scent.
Despite having an extremely busy week, we managed to make time onThursday to visit the mountains of Las Mercedes, an area that was seen as the land of the dead by the Guanches of Tenerife. We don’t do any wildharvesting there because it’s a protected area, but we regularly leave offerings and connect with our Ancestors.
And, there was a very lucky wildharvesting score – a Cedronella Canariensis plant full of seed heads ready to be harvested! This is a very rare and endemic plant, and one of the several plants called Balm Of Gilead in the Bible. I will be more than happy to welcome in into our garden this winter!

Feeding The Spiritual Frame

A big portion of everything we make goes to our daily spiritual work – keeping the Cuadro Espiritual (Spiritual Frame) happy and well fed is one of the most important everyday duties of an Espiritista. In the pics, you can see one of today’s offerings – a good sample of our new Kyphi incense, along with a Cinnamon scented candle, and fresh herbs from our garden.

Why is this important? Because it keeps the Espiritista protected against harm (both human or spirit-related harm); it keeps the correct flow of energy to perform divination, spellwork and any liturgical duties the Espiritista has; and, empowers and cleanses the Spirits that are still in the process of elevation. Without this foundation, us Espiritistas cannot do the work that we are meant to do, guiding and helping our customers and community.

At the moment of posting this, there are still four packs of Kyphi left in the shop – don’t miss your chance!

New Series: Pictures Of The Week – 2018, Week 37

This new post series will feature the best and most magical pictures I post during the week on social media (check links below). Hopefully, this will show how varied and devoted our work is, and how many different things we do in only seven days!

Hydrangeas at the San Benito park. A very powerful plant for love magic, but one that I also relate to ancestral worship, as it was my grandmother’s favourite.

A new batch of Kyphi, that will be placed for sale on packs of 20 pellets on Monday Sept. 17 at the shop. Kyphi is a type of incense that was made in Egypt since the time of Pharaohs.  It is made with herbs, barks, roots and other natural items, and a paste made with raisins steeped with honey and wine. It is burnt on top of a charcoal, like you would do with frankincense. It smells delicious, and Spirits LOVE it!

Salvia Microphylla, a new addition to our magical garden. This type is a Mexican variety of Sage that hopefully will do well in our weather. I’ve never seen it growing here in the islands, so this is really exciting! As all Salvias, this is a plant of healing, blessing, and cleansing. It has a really spicy scent, so I’m sure this will do wonderfully in one of our Kyphi recipes.

The first Lavender flowers of the season, so tiny and fragrant. Lavender is a herb for blessing, that brings peace, forgiveness and understanding to your home and relationships, and that helps healing through grief, recovery from illness, and other long term healing processes. Angelic entities and any Spirits related to healing/medicine will gladly take it as an offering, as well as any Spirits who protect children. Infuse it in olive oil for a very easy, but really effective, blessing oil for anointing.

Cutting fresh Ginger root for future medicine, magic, and food. If you want to know how I preserve it, check this post.

New altar setup, so we could keep all statues together. In our tradition, altars are a very personal choice, and can be as eclectic as the Espiritista chooses, and can afford. We work with 21 full Cortes (groups of Spirits), so it would be impossible to have them all represented; we work with the statues that Spirits put in our way, and do the best we can to keep them all happy :).

Saturday morning’s harvest – Lemon Balm, Basil, Fennel, Spearmint, Argentinian Sage, and Lemongrass. The root in the lower right corner is also from Fennel; once dry, it will be a very potent ingredient for my herbal spellwork powders. This plant was grown from seed, and has been loved and nurtured for two years before harvesting, growing in a completely sacred environment – can you imagine how much power such thing can harness? And, aren’t you happy that this is what goes on your spells and candles?

New At The Shop: Peonia – OOAK Talisman Necklace

EDIT – SOLD!

The most special element in this necklace are the Huayruro seeds, also called Peonías in Spanish. The natural red and black coloration of the seeds have made them a symbol of Eshu Eleggua for centuries; they are used for protection, road opening, and of course for ritual use, showing your alliance with the Orisha of crossroads.

In case you didn’t know, Peonia beads have been retired from the market because, as many other common seeds, they are toxic if ingested (yes, someone was as stupid as to actually eat their jewelry!). The ones used in this necklace are from my vintage stash of beads, and once I am done with them, I will not be able to get more ever.

I have paired the Peonias with the finest, tiniest vintage glass beads in red and black. I wish I had a mannequin to show you how delicate this piece is, and how elegantly it sits around the neck! As with all my talisman jewelry, this necklace has received a very special blessing for the wearer, asking for protection, road opening, luck, and all the good things that our beloved Eleggua brings into this world!

EDIT – SOLD!

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
