You may not want to hear it, but once you need protection, the damage has taken root and you are in crisis management. We certainly have a candle (or 5) for that and it works fast, but what if you could avoid having to spend time in recovery? What if you could avoid the attack in the first place?
Setting up your protection is not the same as stepping into paranoia. Setting up your protection is like exercising and making yourself strong. You won’t need it every day but when you do, you will have the strength to accomplish what you need. A strong spirit, mind and emotions work the same way. When you work your spiritual practice regularly it will keep the random energetic attacks from taking root in your life.
YES YOU CAN Build up your fiery wall of protection.
It is that simple, keep calm, keep clear, stay focused and have clear boundaries. We have just the combination to use in your daily life to start the process before the traumatic need for protection hits.
Sacred White Sage World Magic oil, Ganesha World Magic Oil, and Fiery Wall of Protection Motor City Hoo Doo candle are an effective and powerful combination to build the foundation of your natural protection. Clear the energy that doesn’t serve you, bring focus to your intent and set your boundaries as you travel forward.
Try this little ritual to start your day:
Light the Fiery Wall of Protection candle to set up a spiritual space to work in.
Put a few drops of Sacred White Sage oils on your hand and run your hands through your aura. Pull off the residue of energy that does not belong to you and the energy that would not be useful in your day. Place your hands on the floor and let that energy flow into the earth.
Get ready for your day as normal, making sure to rinse off the oil, thus clearing yourself of any lingering destructive energy.
Before you put on your shoes, set your intent for the day. Anoint your hands and feet with the Ganesha World Magic Oil and visualize obstacles falling away and your road to success opening up.
Return to your Fiery wall candle and see your aura becoming stronger and your boundaries clearer and empowered. As you extinguish the candle, you bring that protective energy into yourself.
Doing this ritual, or one of your own builds those protection muscles. Just like your back muscles need your abs to be more effective, your protection energy needs your clarity, focus and calm demeanor. This is your foundation, and if breached, it’s quickly apparent and you can take additional action and resolve the situation is quick order.
Remember, if you keep your magic close with a daily practice, it will keep you close in it effectiveness and speed.

Are you on team candle or on team oil? I find that many of my customers are committed to using the Coventry candles in their spiritual practice and don’t get how to use the oils, or they are masters of the magical oil and don’t feel the same connection with the candles. We all have our preference for our magical tool kit and I want to widen your horizon just a bit more with the energetic oils.
Oils are a wonderfully portable magic. I travel with mine as well as keep them in my house, on my desk, and in my car. The Wicked Good Energetic Oils are perfect for hitting that perfect magical note or blending on the fly to get a custom charge in the moment.
I have my favorite blend-able oils to share with you in 5 ways to use them in daily magical life.
1 – Cleansing on the fly - Grandma was right when she said a peppermint candy would calm an upset tummy. A cup of peppermint tea can soothe a troubled spirit and peppermint gum is a must after a garlic meal. See the rhythm here? When things are upset or unpleasant, peppermint it the energy you need. I defuse the Peppermint Energetic Oil in the air, to keep the calm and clear the crud. Peppermint is really good for cleansing overwhelming emotions.
2 – A handshake of power – Shaking hands in a business environment can be a power play. The hand crushing, the limp noodle, the clammy, the never ending, the touch and go handshakes are ways to read the room, but you can be the quiet power that quickly seals everyone’s attention with a bit of Amber Energetic Oil. Rub a little of the oil on your hands while you fill your aura with calm, grounded, powerful energy. Next thing you know, your voice and demeanor will follow.
3 – Zen on the go – Sandalwood can just transport you away from your stressors. It’s a calming and uplifting scent that can change your day in an instant. Keep the Sandalwood Energetic Oil on your desk. All you need is a cotton ball, a few drops and few long inhales. You will be ready for that next meeting. (run that scented cotton ball on the edge of the conference table and see if everyone gets a bit zen?
4 – Make more money – Date reminds us of the sweetness of life and vibrates with the power of abundance. Put a few drops of the Date Energetic Oil on every bill you spend with the intention of 10 more coming home to roost. Hunting money on the fly!
5- Stick to your goal – Getting your paper done, sticking to your new healthy routine, staying strong in your goal are all empowered by the Juniper Energetic Oil. Juniper helps you stay true to your own resolve and clear out that self-sabotage. Put a few drops in your shoes and walk tall and strong through your day!
Now you can expand your magical tool kit and be both team candle and team oil!
Keep living that magic!
Welcome to 2018 – the year of the collective power. There is going to be a strength in numbers this year as you will find your tribe or hive faster than ever before. People of like mind are actively looking for each other because we know that together we go farther.
The Witches Union Hive Magic patch is the badge of community magic. You earn it the moment you commit to a goal larger than yourself and join forces with others to make it happen. It’s amazing how many hives, or groups of likeminded people we are already involved with. Just look at social media and who you are following and who you follow. You are part of a larger voice, a hive right there. Yet, this social media hive it not so warm these days and it can be downright alienating. How do you find and celebrate your hive? How do you get that connection with others, feel a part of a larger family of love?
It starts with you, your intention, your need and your ideal. Often we think that our perfect soul family or hive should be perfect, unconditionally supportive and never a cross word. This is not a realistic goal. Hives are messy, we crowd each other, expect more from each other than can be given and we generally get annoyed. That messiness pushed us to grow and you know you are in the right group when you feel yourself growing with the others and everyone is looking toward the same ideal in the long run.
Finding your hive is also about trial and error, it’s ok to find yourself in a place that you don’t fit as long as you can step away from what is not healthy. We stay for a while and then we change and move on, that is how it works.
Finding your hive is also magic. You call to them, you empower each other and you thrive. When you find yourself in a lonely place put out the call to your hive with the following spell and then make sure you get out into the world to find them
Finding your Hive spell
3 candle holders
Jar of Honey
Bunch of flowers or a flowering plant
A list of what type of group and qualities of people you are seeking
Thread (of any color that inspires you)
Optional – Witches Union Hive Patch
Place the flowers in the center of the altar. Place the candles in their holders in a triangle around the flowers (at least 6” away from the widest part of the plant.)
Open the jar of honey and taste it. Recognize the sweetness that can be created through cooperative work. Dip a length of the thread into the honey and loosely wrap the thread around the flowers and each candle holder. Anoint the top of each candle with a light smear of honey.
Light all the candles in whatever order you are inspired. The Problem Solving candle is to see and remove what blocks you have constructed to keep you apart from like-minded people. The Heart candle is to look for your hive from your heart center first. The Attraction candle is to help your hive find you while you are looking for them. Speak aloud to the candles what type of group you are looking for and the qualities you admire and want to be a part of. Place this list under the candles.
Let the candles burn for 3 hours at a time up to 7 consecutive days. Never leave a burning candle unattended. Dispose of the candle remains and cut flowers after 7 days or sooner if the flowers have died. If you are using a flowering plant, toss the petals that have fallen out with the candle remains.
Every day, get out into the world and connect with people. Talk to new people and let everyone you know in on your search. You will find a hive to connect with within 30 days. Try it out you may just like it.
Keep every day magic and you will be leading a magical life!
“How can it be December when my to-do list is still so full? I have goals I tell ya! I have things I committed to doing in 2017 and I just can’t do it. “
This is the December panic every year. Sometimes this panic starts in October, sometimes in November, but I get the 4th quarter blues and start feeling bad about myself, even feeling like a failure. This was not healthy and I needed a new perspective. I got that new perspective from Danielle LaPort and her book Desire Map. Instead of hard fast goals, she talks about changing your ideal to how you want to feel.
I learned when it was time to dig deeper with my goals and when it was time to let them go.
Think about it, what if you focused on creating the emotion your goal’s success would generate rather than getting stuck in the exact details? It’s freeing. What is it you are really going for with each goal? Are you looking for a new better paying job or are you looking for stability? Maybe you are looking for creativity. If your goal is to get your house in order, are you looking for a perfect house or clarity and calm? If your goal is to lose weight, are you looking to be a certain size or do you want to feel healthy?
Goals are most often treated as a sacred tome that none shall change. The reality is that they are a moving target. You set your goals when you are living one set of circumstances. As you work toward your goal perspectives and your circumstances start to change. You may want to reorganize your house and in the process you realize you have too much stuff. It’s ok if you shift to downsizing and the organization happens along the way.
Treat your 2018 goals like a moving target and add the spice of magic to them along the way. The Affirmation candles are perfect for this. If you are not inspired already as to which candle you will use, try this little goal setting spell. I guarantee more of your goals will come to fruition at the end of 2018 than you thought possible.
New Year Blessing
Gather these tools:
-Your favorite pen
-Bowl for burning
Light the three candles in separate candle holders. Open your new notebook and write yourself a letter as to what you wanted to accomplish and how you wanted to feel in the past year. What went right, what went wrong and what you left undone? Now take a look at your answers and think about how you want to feel in 2018.
Move to a new page and start with how you want to feel throughout the year. Use adjectives like strong, calm, abundant, loved, etc. Fill an entire page. When you are done, look back at that page and look for the pattern. Distill it all down to 2 or 3 words that encompass your ideals.
Turn the page and put those 3 words on a new sheet. Look back at what you didn’t do and what didn’t work in the last year and see if any of those things need to be part of your 2018 goals or if they need to be let go. Whatever needs to come forward, bring it.
Tear out the pages of 2017 and burn them in the bowl, lighting it from the success candle. Focus on letting the unfilled expectations from 2017 go. Think about your successes and how you were able to overcome the unexpected and expected challenges you navigated through.
Go back to your notebook and your 3 words for the year. Write down 12 things you can do in the next 12 months to manifest those feelings. Keep them based in reality, something you have to reach and push for and something you will feel proud to accomplish.
Divide the remainder of your notebook into 12 months. Divide each month into 4 weeks. Each week for the next year, write what you will do for that week to work toward the feelings you want to manifest and at the end of the week, write what you did do. Stay in the positive whenever you write in this notebook.
Give yourself an inspirational quote, something to be grateful for or some kind of prompt for each month and week. You are spreading the magic of success, insight and abundance through your entire year.
Keep this notebook where you will see and use it all year.
Make 2018 exactly what you need it to be. Practice loving kindness on yourself first and be at peace with your journey.
