Activation Ritual for Release Spirit Soak
Have you recently released emotional baggage, and now your body feels drained and exhausted? For Mundane Use: Add 1 TSP in the brown tea bag provided next place in a warm bath. Relax your body, mind, and spirit. As your hands and the soles of your feet begin to tingle, take a breath and submerge your entire body at least one time for a complete activation. For Ritual Use: Prepare your Bath the same way as above. ( ideally, this should be done during a full moon which is in my humble opinion the best time to release what no longer serves us.) Next, I want you to think about what you are releasing, Where do you feel dis-easement in your body? What is it you desire to release today? Have You checked your Energy Cords? Do you Still have Energetic Cords attached to What you are Releasing? Next, you will add your favorite candles in the appropriate colors. You may empower them with sigils. Or create sigils on paper and place them somewhere you can view while in the bath. Power statements such as, "Today I am Going to Release..." Drawl in your circle of sacred space and call in your Spirit Guides. Listen to your body, and your breath, when you feel ready to submerge underwater to activate completely. As you take a moment underwater feel the dis-easements leaving from your portals: nose, mouth, ears, vagina, penis, and anus areas. Also, feel and acknowledge the difference in your chakra alignment. Come up for air and feel the elemental energies around your body in the water. The fire of candles, the water around you, the air inside you, and the earth beneath your body. Your hands and feet should tingle, activation is complete. Make sure to rinse your body well, and mind the rose petals and herbs not going down the drain. Make sure to thank your Spirit Guides and Release your circle and complete your bath. Release Description: Release Spirit Soak is designed for use 3days before, during, and up to 3 days after a Full Moon. You may also use this spirit soak as a spiritual cleanser after ritual work has been completed. Allow your tired body, mind, and soul the opportunity to relax and release what no longer serves you—deep notes of almond oil, roses, rosemary, and thyme. Each batch is tuned for 2 hours with solfeggio frequency 528 Hz during the drying of the roses and while mixing and energetically charging the collection. Each batch's Color will vary from shades of deep red to deep purple. Depending on the dried roses I have available from my garden. This item will arrive in a 4 X 6 bag along with three small tea bags. RELEASE Ingredients: MAGNESIUM SULFATE, FRAGRANCE (PARFUM), PRUNUS AMYGDALUS DULCIS, (SWEET ALMOND) OIL, AMYRIS BALSAMIFERA BARK OIL (SANDALWOOD), HELIANTHUS ANNUUS (SUNFLOWER) SEED OIL, BUTYROSPERMUM PARKI (SHEA) BUTTER, ALOW BARBADENSIS LEAF EXTRACT (DECOLORIZED), SODIUM BICARBONATE. CHAMOMILE, LEMONGRASS, BLUE MALLOW BLOSSOMS, LAVENDER, SPEARMINT DRIED ROSE PETALS, ROSEMARY, DRIED THYME The History of My Salt Soaks is Simple During my time spent with my clients, I saw a real need for the physical aftercare of releasing rituals. These Salt Soaks were designed to help the body release physically the emotional blocks we carry in our bodies from stress. To Be Clear & My Disclaimer: The Release Salt Soak is meant to support the removal of dis-easements. Which can be defined as energetic blocks, trapt energy, emotional bottling and the side effects of trauma-related injuries. This is not a snake oil wonder cure for the disease. That is something entirely different which requires modern medicine from licensed professionals If you feel you need professional help from a licensed care provider please seek that service elsewhere. I am not the correct fit for what you are looking for. In closing, it is my deepest wish for you dear customer, client, wildling that my release salt soaks help you rest, reflect and recharge in a safe space.

Guided Meditation: The Woodlands
In this 30 min Guided Meditation I will take you to The Woodlands. This elemental plane is the first of four elemental planes we will visit in your first year of working with me. A recurring conversation this week has been one of connecting to your spirit guides. So I have a quick blog post with a link to The Woodlands Meditation along with a list of 7 Journaling Prompts to complete once you have finished the meditation. What is journaling so crucial in our work? It helps us to step out of our headspace and make room for the messages to come. Journaling also allows us to identify patterns and acknowledge the milestones we achieve in time. The person you are today is not the same person you were last year, nor 3-5 years before. Honor the journey and enjoy the experience. Find a comfortable position to sit or lie down. You are keeping your arms and legs uncrossed. You don't need to watch the video; only listen to it. Once you have completed the journey, please return to this post and complete the journaling prompts listed below. Journaling Prompts When you felt your spirit drop down into the ocean of emotions, did you see or feel anyone around you? How did your energy shift? What did the energy feel like as you climbed out of the water to the sand? Who did you see as you walked along the pathway? What messages did you hear along the way? Once you reached the clearing, describe who you met, what they were wearing, how they walked, and what they said to you? The overall messages you received during this meditation were primarily about the present self version of you. What are your next steps in your journey? When you have finished these writing prompts, please come to The Sexual Empowerment Witch's Group on Facebook (my free group and share with us How it went.) Wanting More?

Understanding how to work with your intuitive abilities
Intuitive abilities are natural gifts that allow us to perceive, know and understand things beyond our everyday experience. They can help us make better decisions, connect with others more profoundly and live more fulfilling lives. Intuitive abilities can also be used for the greater good of humanity at large. When we can tap into our intuitive abilities and use them to benefit all, we can create positive change in the world. Intuition can help us connect with other people on a deeper level and see beyond the surface level of things. This can allow us to create meaningful connections and collaborations with others, ultimately leading to positive change. So, how can you start to work with your intuitive abilities? Here are a few tips: 1. Trust your intuition. This is probably the most important thing to remember when working with intuitive abilities. If you don’t trust what you feel or sense, it will be challenging to use your intuition effectively. 2. Be open to learning. Intuitive abilities can be pretty elusive, and it might take some time and practice to learn how to work with them effectively. Be patient and be open to learning new things. 3. Pay attention to your intuitive signals. When you are paying attention to your intuitive signs, you might notice that they come in the form of thoughts, feelings, or images. Be aware of these signals and pay attention to what they are trying to tell you. 4. Practice meditation. Meditation can be a great way to connect with your intuition and access the wisdom and guidance available to you. 5. Follow your intuition. When you have a sense of something, go with it! Intuitive hunches are often correct, so go for it if you feel like something is worth exploring! Intuitive abilities can be a powerful tool for personal growth and transformation. By learning to trust and work with our intuition, we can access a deeper level of ourselves and create positive change in the world. ~ Find Your Voice, Find Your Power
Maintaining Intimacy In Your Marriage
Recently I asked on several of my social media platforms “What is the most important part of Intimacy to you? The overwhelming response to this was simple in nature. Communication with your partner. Regardless of their relationship status, length of time or how many children they had, communication was above all the overwhelming answers I received from my followers. By communicating with your spouse, you are laying the intimate foundations of your relationship. You are present in each other’s life
How do we communicate? Well to start there’s verbal and nonverbal communication. I’m only going to focus on these two for today. We have hearing words of affirmations right? Then we have a psychical touch. Two of the Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman. Both of these we will be exploring further. But first I would like to ask all of you:
What is Intimacy?
According to Wikipedia Intimacy is the state of being intimate. A close, familiar, and usually affectionate or loving personal relationship with another person or group. A close association with or detailed knowledge or deep understanding of a place, subject, period of history. An act or expression serving as a token of familiarity, affection. Sexual intercourse the quality of being comfortable, warm or familiar. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intimate_relationship
No matter your history, or cultural upbringing, we all can agree on one. As humans, we were never created to be alone. We crave to be touched, to be loved, to have intimate relationships with others. We see this is evident in the case studies having been done on newborns in the hospital receiving skin to skin bonding time with their mothers. The babies who are held flourish while those who are lacking this do not do nearly as well. You see the premature babies in the NICU, most of them are hooked up to some pretty heavy-duty machines. I can tell you this first hand as a mother. Our youngest was born with an ASD (Atrial Septal Defect or a hole in her heart) and a TAPVR (Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return - Which means her pulmonary veins were not correctly connected to her left atrium) we did not find out about it until she was 2 months old. She spent nearly a month in the hospital while we waited for her little body to become healthy enough for the open heart surgery she required. My husband and I would sit and watch the monitors. As soon as she could feel her daddy’s hands touching her little arm or leg, her heartbeat would quicken and she would open her eyes there she was my little fighter, ready to take on the world.
This is also further proven by looking at any of the small children living in one of the many orphanages. Her body is malnourished, her eyes are sad and she is simply existing. She is hardly ever held or shown affections or even told words of affirmation. Her health suffers from not enough contact. You take this same child, you drop down to her eye level. Make direct eye contact and show her warm and open body language. What does she do? She hesitates for a moment because sadly, she may not understand what attention means or even be sure of what is about to happen, and then you see it. She reaches out her primal urge, longing to be held by someone, anyone willing to comfort her. Willing to hold her and tell her she is loved and valued in this world. When children like her are adopted and given the opportunity to be in a loving home they come alive and they flourish in this world.
This transfers over to adults, in any relationship. As adults, we long for and crave to be touched and to find an intimate relationship. To have another person to share our lives with. To have someone who knows us in such an intimate way we find trust and comfort to lay the foundations for something so much more greater. To have our hearts nourished and feel full of love. In a marriage, we have to acknowledge the different stages, the life cycle of it. We all start off hot heavy, then we grow and we change, and we become more comfortable. As we start this journey some of us become parents and our marriages shift to adjust to our new roles. Our focus is no longer on the hot and heavy stage of US it’s on becoming parents caring for our children, building a life for them and ourselves. We can fall into a comfortable numb, a mundane and complacent life if we're not comforted. Slowly over time, we lose ourselves and sometimes, unfortunately, each other along the way. Once we figure out what stage we are in we need to figure out how do we get back to us? How do we find that missing spark again?
As an adult toy educator, I see this quite often in the one on one discreet consultations I do with my customers. We get so busy in life we forget the traditions that reinforce the bonds in our relationships, the playful and loving rituals we do to reignite that sparkle in the eyes of our significant other. I have a few questions I like to ask my clients when we really sit down to talk. I want them to really think back to the fun, the playful the BLISS.
Remember that first date? What was so special about it? How about that moment in life when you KNEW they were the one person you were going to spend the rest of your life with? What was it that caught your attention about them? How about your first kiss? The first time you made love? Hold on to those memories for just a moment.
I met my husband on a blind date when I was only 19. I knew he was the one after an hour of talking to him. It was so strange to me when he and I spoke I felt as though I knew him already. As though we were already familiar in our hearts with each other. At 19 years old, I was still a baby yet I had lived a lifetime before meeting him. My husband was the only man I ever spoke to where I didn’t stutter. I still remember that night like it was yesterday. He made me feel warm and comfortable during our conversations. Talking about our families, and our friends while we giggled as we learned about each other.
Not 24 hours after I met him, I packed a duffle bag of clothes, grabbed my favorite cast iron skillet and the homemade butcher's block my father had made recently for me. We hopped in his truck and this California girl was off to Waco, Texas. Every parent’s nightmare right? Lol. Almost 12 years together, 3 beautiful little daughters, and the life we have worked so hard to build together. I can attest to losing intimacy in my marriage. When We became parents, it was not that we ever stopped being us, we simply pushed us off to the side and focused everything on the first steps, the first words, first laugh and then This focus grew into the beautiful first day of school, first time riding a bike without training wheels, and the first big job promotion. As a parent, how do you find time for intimacy when everyone in the house is having a meltdown? It’s not an easy task, not by far. Sometimes, you are able to see it coming other times you are not.
For us we hit a very rough patch, we spoke about that horrible D word no one ever wants to hear in a marriage. When the moment came, we opted for marriage counseling instead. We wanted to fight for our marriage, for our family and for what we have worked so hard to build together. During our sessions, we had discovered somewhere along the 12 years and 3 beautiful incredible amazing little daughters we lost the US. We lost who we were as a couple. We lost what had made us work together as a solid unit. With becoming the very best guy at work, and women in business. We had put us off to the side. We forgot how to hold hands in the store. Expectedly instead, we replaced holding hands withholding children. The three little kisses on the check shoulder or arms before bedtime. We were lost in the mix of quick showers, brushing our hair and teeth and preparing for bed. We had forgotten about the glass of chocolate milk after sex. If sex was great the chocolate milk was on point not to Sweet, not to Milky. Yet if sex was just ok. Well, we laughed at the horrible batch of chocolate milk we made together.
These small yet extremely important rituals in our marriage to reaffirm our intimacy was missing. So how do you get the rituals back after becoming a parent? Well, you can go to counseling, read books on relationships and practice communicating with your spouse. Its a start, to want that intimate connection back. At least that has helped us to become the very best partners we could ever possibly become. It starts off small. Baby steps. Getting to this point didn’t happen overnight. It took time to grow apart and may take time to grow back together. Maybe it’s scheduling a date night. Take time for this, because it’s important. "We were lost in the mix of quick showers, brushing our hair and teeth and preparing for bed. We had forgotten about the glass of chocolate milk after sex. Take the time to get dressed up for your spouse Men you to. Let your beautiful spouse see the man she married. This is the moment you dress up for each other.
Find a place to go to dinner, or if money's kinda tight, Improvise and make a nice dinner at home ( hide the frozen dinner boxes of premade food in the bottom of the trash can if you must). The important thing to remember is it’s the journey getting to this point, not the small little details of things that really don’t matter at the end of the day. Perhaps it’s a weekend away to fully immerse in a silly adventure together. Maybe..dare I say randomly watch a porno together, see how you both feel about what is being done in the scene. Allow yourselves the opportunity to communicate and explore creative ways of playing in a safe space. Then sit and talk about it for a moment and maybe, you might find an exciting new way to play together. I tell you after 12 years together we are still learning and finding new ways to play together.
Recently, on the show “Play with Me” from Playboy Radio, We the panel discussed the subject of kissing. What the body’s emotional, psychological and psychical response to kissing was. Let’s start off with psychical and psychological responses: Did you know our lips are our body's most exposed erogenous zone? Oh yes, it takes five of the 12 cranial nerves to engage in learning about our partner.
When we kiss, dopamine is released throughout our bodies creating the sensation of falling in love during a passionate kiss. This dopamine makes us feel happy or sad sometimes even sleepy. This also sends a message to our blood vessels allowing them to dilate and our hearts to race. This is also what we identify as the sensation of falling in love. Have you ever had such a passionate kiss it brought you to orgasm? It’s an interesting experience to have. From an emotional standpoint, kissing so connecting in a relationship. After a long day of work, how would it feel to have your spouse meet you at the door? Wrapping his or her arms around your neck and body and fully embracing you for a hot and passionate kiss. Only to pull away and look you in the eyes and say “I missed you today.” How does it make you feel to kiss your significant other? When was the last time you had a hot and heavy make-out session with heavy petting and hot breath on your neck?
What are some other rituals you do in your relationship to reaffirm your love? I am big on psychical touch. Run your finger through my hair, touch my face and tell me that you love me.
After a long day, one of the biggest things I look forward to my husband doing for me is a shower. The psychical act of soaping up a sponge with our tropical scented handcrafted soaps and washing my entire body scrubbing away all of the stress from the day. The feel of the warm shower and the closeness of his body to mine. Most of the time, it really does not require sex afterward. Just the intimate moment we share naked in front of each other. The rough feel of his hands, the warmth of his skin. The intimate way to explore each other’s bodies. The way his body feels as I scrub his legs. To connect, to talk about our day. To release the stress, then we dry each other off. Most of the time this only happens realistically after we put our little ones to bed. Otherwise, we do hear the distractions of knocking and whining at the door.
I have heard of a few rituals other couples do, one couple writes naughty little messages across the smooth surface of the peanut butter jar. Just a quick little naughty note to remind each other hey.. I see you, I want to play with you and engage. Another bakes a tray of cookies and meets her husband at the door wearing her apron, heels and holding the tray of cookies with nothing else. This couple recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.( and a possible sexual harassment charge from the FedEx driver… Just kidding). Love is a playful art form. Intimacy is the choosing to connect and be present in your partner’s Life. Without having intimacy in your marriage and honoring the close connection it will not bring any joy to your life, it will suffer and may even parish.
This is one of the biggest reasons I love being an adult toy educator. I am honored to sit down nearly every weekend to hear people share their personal sex lives with me. Sometimes it’s a date night and a pair of vibrating panties. Sometimes it’s finding the right flavor of edible warming oil and book to describe the different ways to give and receive a sensual massage for a special anniversary present. Other times it's in the workshops I teach, helping women to rediscover the body confidence we often lose after having children. In closing, I want to add an important point. Adult toys were never created to replace your spouse, They are meant to enhance your sex lives. To explore the many intimate ways your body responds to the visual stimulation the psychical vibrations and textures of materials, also sometimes utilizing scent, and taste. Once you open this door the possibilities are endless.
10 Signs Your Relationship is in Trouble
Relationships are hard. No one will tell you it's easy, but that doesn't mean they're impossible either. Relationship problems come up in every couple at some point- most of the time, we can work through them and move on. However, sometimes relationships just aren't meant to be, and there's nothing left for us to do but let go. If your relationship seems like it might be headed towards a breakup, here are ten signs your relationship may be in trouble: You feel like you're the only one putting in an effort. If this is starting to sound familiar, it may be time to ask yourself if your relationship has what it takes. Relationship problems are almost always a two-way street; no matter how much work you're doing on your end, if your partner isn't reciprocating, things aren't going to get better anytime soon, and they might even continue getting worse over time. If you find that there's worse than good days lately... This can sometimes happen when people drift apart or lose interest in each other for whatever reason but don't necessarily want to call off the relationship just yet because of all their memories together or simply not knowing where else they would go! Or maybe they are afraid of being single or, worse, getting back together with an ex! Relationship problems like these can be hard to deal with, so if you find yourself feeling this way about your partner more often than not, it might be time to take a step back and figure out what went wrong. You don't feel safe around them anymore. A relationship is built on trust, but that trust has been broken into pieces at some point. After many years of emotional ups and downs in the relationship. Of course, there will always have differences between partners where one party feels betrayed by another despite having good intentions towards each other most times resulting in resentment for their actions which leads us onto our next sign. Not knowing whether we should believe anything they say any longer- Relationship trouble. You feel like you're constantly walking on eggshells. This is a sign that one, or both of you, are feeling angry and frustrated most of the time. When this happens, it's usually because one person continuously makes the other feel bad about themselves without even realizing it. Relationship problems like these can be tough to deal with, so it might be helpful to talk to someone who can help you get your perspective straight- whether that means talking to a therapist or just venting to a friend. The chemistry is gone. If things used to be passionate and exciting between you two, but now all of that seems like a distant memory, there may be trouble in paradise. People change over time, and sometimes, we outgrow our partners. When this happens, it's important to remember that you two are still individuals who deserve happiness- Relationship trouble. The relationship has become a chore. This is the last stage before breaking up for most couples! Relationship problems like these can be tough to deal with because we may feel stuck in relationships where there seems to be no future or hope of things ever getting better between us, then one day, out of nowhere, either party decides enough is enough! Relationship advice given by professionals suggests seeking marriage counseling if possible, but sometimes circumstances outside our control, such as time constraints, make it difficult. You don't have anything left in the joint anymore. If your conversations seem forced and always revolve around small talk about work/kids/what happened on Game Of Thrones etc., it's a sign that you two are growing apart. This can be tough to deal with, especially if you've been together for a long time, but sometimes it's best to admit that things aren't working out and move on- Relationship trouble. Your partner is always criticizing you. If your partner is constantly putting you down or making fun of you in front of other people, this is humiliating and emotionally abusive. Relationship problems like these need to be addressed immediately because they will only worsen over time! No one deserves to feel bad about themselves all the time simply because they're in a relationship with someone who doesn't know how to treat them with respect and kindness- Relationship abuse. You don't feel happy around them anymore. Relationship problems like these are tough to deal with because you might not even realize that the relationship is making you unhappy until it's too late. Relationship advice given by professionals suggests seeking marriage counseling if possible, but sometimes circumstances outside our control, such as time constraints, make it difficult. They're always putting their friends before you. If your partner doesn't seem interested in spending quality alone time together or they constantly cancel on plans last minute without an explanation, this could be a sign of something bigger! Relationship problems like these can be hard to identify at first so remember- whether we want to admit it or not, everything has consequences and effects, which means one person may feel neglected while the other feels guilty about ignoring us instead of being happy. Your partner is always flirting with other people If your partner is constantly flirting with other people or they've been known to cheat in the past, and this is a sign that there may be trouble in paradise. Relationship problems like these are never easy to deal with and, unfortunately, more often than not, end in breakups. However, if you're both willing to work on things, then it's possible to save the relationship! You don't feel sexy or desired by them anymore. This one speaks for itself. If you don't feel sexy or desired by your partner anymore, it's probably because they no longer find you attractive. Relationship problems like these can be hard to deal with but remember that you're still beautiful, no matter what your partner says or does! They never want to do anything new If your partner is always suggesting the same old dinner and movie dates or they're not interested in trying new things, this could be a sign that they're becoming complacent in the relationship. Relationship problems like these can be dangerous because they often lead to one person feeling trapped while the other feels stuck in a rut. Your gut is telling you something isn't right. This one is probably the most critical piece of advice I can give you if you feel deep inside that something isn't right in your relationship. Trust your gut! Relationship problems like these are never easy to deal with, but if you ignore the warning signs, it could lead to something much worse.

Getting Started with Candle Magic: A Guide for Beginner Witches
Are you interested in exploring the magical world of candles? If so, then this guide is for you! Here, we will discuss everything you need to know about candle magic – from choosing the suitable candles for your spells and rituals to performing effective candle magic spells. Whether you're just starting as a beginner witch or looking to add some new techniques to your repertoire, this guide will provide you with all the information you need to get started with candle magic. So let's get started! What is candle magic? Candle magic is a type of magic that uses candles as a focus or catalyst for your spells and rituals. There are many different types of candle magic, so it's essential to choose the right kind for your needs. For example, if you're looking to attract something into your life, you might use a green candle. If you're trying to banish something, you might use a black candle. To perform candle magic, you'll need to gather the necessary supplies – including candles of the right color and type, a holder for your candle, and something to light it with. Once you have these supplies, you can begin casting your spells by focusing on what you want to achieve, burning the candle, and speaking your spell out loud. With patience and perseverance, you can use the power of candle magic to manifest your goals and achieve success in all areas of your life. How to choose the right candles for your spells and rituals If you're interested in exploring the magical world of candles, one of the first things you'll need to do is choose the suitable candles for your spells and rituals. Here are a few tips to help you select the right candles for your needs: 1. Consider the desired outcome of your spell or ritual. Different colors of candles have different symbolic meanings, so it's essential to choose the right color for your particular goal. For example, if you're trying to attract love into your life, a red candle might be a good choice. If you're looking for financial abundance, a yellow or gold candle may be more suitable. 2. Consider the type of candle you need. Different types of candles have other purposes. For example, if you're looking to release negativity or banish something from your life, a black candle might be a good choice. If you're trying to protect yourself from harm, a white candle would be more appropriate. 3. Choose a size that is appropriate for your spell or ritual. Smaller candles are generally used for spells and rituals that require more focused energy, while larger candles are better suited for less intense or longer-term goals. 4. Shop around and experiment to find the best candles for you. Not all candles will work equally well for every spell or ritual, so trying different types and brands is essential to see what works best for you. With experimentation and research, you can find the perfect candles to help you achieve all of your magical goals. Simple tips for performing effective candle magic spells If you're new to the world of candle magic, it's essential to start with simple spells and rituals that are easy to learn and perform. Here are a few tips to help you get started: 1. Choose a quiet, uninterrupted time to perform your spell or ritual. This will help you to focus and avoid distractions. 2. Prepare your workspace to be inviting, clean, and free from distractions. This can help you feel calm and centered as you begin the spell or ritual. 3. Gather all of the supplies you will need for your spell or ritual, including candles of the right color and type, a candle holder, matches or a lighter, and any other tools. 4. Take a few deep breaths and relax your body before beginning. This will help clear your mind and prepare you for the spell or ritual. 5. Light the candle and focus on your intention when you're ready. Hold the image of what you want to achieve in your mind as you speak your spell or ritual out loud. 6. Allow the candle to burn down, then dispose of the remnants respectfully and safely. 7. Give thanks for the guidance and support of the Universe, and trust that your spell or ritual will manifest your desires. With a bit of practice, you can master the art of candle magic and use this ancient practice to achieve all of your goals and dreams. Whether you are looking for love, abundance, protection, or healing, a perfect candle is waiting to help you reach your desired outcome. So get out there and start experimenting with the power of candles today! Working with colors in candle magic: using intention, symbolism, and other elements of witchcraft to choose the suitable candles for your spells and rituals One of the essential elements to consider when working with candle magic is color. Each color carries unique symbolism and intention, making it a necessary part of choosing the suitable candles for your spells and rituals. It is essential to start by setting an intention for your spell or ritual. What do you hope to achieve through your work with candles? Is it love, abundance, protection, healing, creativity, or something else entirely? Your intention will inform the colors and types of candles you choose for your work. Once you have set an intention for your spell or ritual, it is time to consider the symbolism of different colors. Each color has its energy and meaning, which can be used to enhance the power of your spell or ritual. For example, red candles are often used for love, passion, and sexual spells. Yellow candles are associated with happiness, sunshine, and mental clarity. Green candles represent growth, fertility, and abundance. Blue candles can be used for peace, healing, and protection. There are many other colors to consider, each with its unique symbolism. Take some time to research the different meanings of colors before choosing the right ones for your spell or ritual. You can also consult a book of shadows or another witchy resource for more ideas. Resources and further reading on candle magic and beginner witchcraft practices If you are interested in learning more about candle magic and other elements of beginner witchcraft practices, many resources are available to help guide your studies. One of the best ways to learn is by reading books on the subject, which can provide valuable insights and instructions on working with candles, crystals, oils, herbs, and other tools. Some good books to start with include: "Candle Magick: A Witch's Guide to Spells and Rituals" by Anna Kipling, "Hands-on Witchcraft for Teens: Real-Life Magic You Can Do!" by Dorothy Morrison, and "Witchy Mama: An Everyday Guide to Modern Magick for Mothers & Daughters" by Joanna DeVoe.

Sex Magick: A Solo Act
Learn how to Use your Orgasm to Manifest an intentional life you love. Learn how to Use your Orgasm to Manifest an intentional life you love. Does this Quarantine have you feeling off-balance? Now more than ever, we are in a place of rest and reflection around our bodies -which is the perfect time to explore working with your own orgasm to harness the creative sexual energy and manifest the desired outcome. Sex Magick is an effective tool utilizing the build-up, climax and release of sexually charged energy during ritual practice for specific results. Sexual magick it is different from "just" sex in that it is used for the express purpose of creating and manifesting, as opposed to sexual pleasure and/or procreation. Sex Magick also has the power to serve as a healing method for those who have experienced sexual and emotional trauma. Point of Origins No one really knows with absolute certainty where sex magick originates from, only that it has been around since the beginning of mankind. Depending on whom you ask, some will say it started with the earliest of pagans celebrating Beltane, while others may discuss the healing qualities of eastern practices, such as Tantra, to treat underlying dis-easment in the body related to genital armoring. Now that we understand what sex magick is, how do we use it? I recommend creating a plan for what are you calling in. Let's use one of my favorite examples: a career change. This ritual would be planned for a new moon, complete with herbs, along with candles in crystals in the appropriate colors. Begin with a cleansing ritual bath, adding your favorite salts to wash away the day and restore your personal energy. During the bath, visualize everything that has been weighing you down leaving your body, washing down the drain. After the bath, cleanse and create a sacred space just for this ritual work. Use fresh, clean bedsheets to remove any residual energy from other work, dreams, sex, or sleeping. You may call in your quarters, spirits, elements, or create crystal grids to form a protective circle around your work. (Depending on your personal beliefs and practice). Once your body is in a comfortable position start with breathwork. Listen to how your body breathes, feel it in your organs. That golden light entering your body through the nose and exiting your body through the mouth pulling the grey dis-easements out. Visualization in Sex Magick Begin masturbating, and focus your energy, on your candles that have been charged and consecrated with your intentions, or your sigils are written on paper next to you. Visualize what this next level version of you looks like. While still masturbating feel the softness of your body and rise and fall of breath in your lungs as your excitement continues building. Focus your mind on what a typical day in your new career will look like. How early do you get up for this new career? What type of work will you be doing? How does it feel to be living in alignment with your purpose? As your energy continues to build, think of how great your new career with be - how this new career will make you feel emotional, and what changes it will bring financially. As your body reaches climax close out your typical day remembering how much you loved this new career. Affirm that with this energy, you are releasing all fears and doubts around it and that you will start this new career when the universe offers it to you. Once you have reached completion... Allow your body a few minutes to rest and soak in the oxytocin and endorphins you've just released for that euphoric feeling. You are the master of your universe, and you have the power to make changes happen. Afterward, remember to close your sacred circle, thank your quarters, spirits, elements, or crystals that held safe space during your ritual work. The aftercare is just as important as the ritual work itself in Sex Magick. Honor your body, and clean whatever needs cleaning. Over the next few days as the moon cycle starts building brighter, give thanks again to your quarters, spirits, elements, or crystal for their assistance. Further, power your ritual by also doing the "mundane" work; you must match the energy you are calling in. This means you must actually apply for the job, make a positive impression at the interview, etc. Sex Magick with the universe is mutual, not exclusive.

What it's Like to Book a Tarot Reading with Me
I wanted to riff on a few lines here and talk about what it's like to book a tarot reading with me. Hey Friend, If you have clicked on this blog post, welcome to my world! I am a cold reader. When you book an appointment with me, I ask that you do not share any information with me before our scheduled time together. I do this because I honor the integrity of the reading for you and me. I want you to know that the message coming through is from Spirit in a way that I do not have access to learning before our time together. Before our appointment I cleanse my space and light my incense. I allow myself time to sit with the spirits for a few minutes beforehand to listen to whatever messages I need to hear as the reader. They have a wooden chair in my office to sit and be part of the conversations should they choose to be, providing my spiritual guides gave permission. I take a couple of breaths and unwind the energy in my body to allow for a better connection to Spirit. (Now, I have mentioned Spirit a couple of times. You may feel uncomfortable, so let us pull this apart. ) You said Spirit; what does that mean? Spirit to me means many things; sometimes, it's the Spirit of a family member who has passed on. Other times, it is a body sensation that creeps over the skin and requires no words. I have no way of knowing who, how, or what beforehand. I have complete faith and trust in my spiritual guides that I am supported in the connections of the highest good for the seekers. ( you as the client) If the Spirit connecting to our work is not here for the right reasons, my spiritual team removes them from the chair. I share this tenderly as I understand what it was like for me to sit in the chair as a seeker many years ago before learning how to read tarot cards and finding my mentor for support in my work. Now that we have more clarity around cold reads and spirit work, the next part of the reading is to connect and listen. During our Appointment I always ask clients to bring water, a pen, and paper for notes during our call. We start by taking a couple of deep breaths. This allows our energy to calibrate to each other. Often a body sensation will pop up ex: shoulders will feel heavy from carrying the responsibility of others, or discomfort in the throat for not speaking up for self. Sometimes it's in the solar plex-heavy feelings around a lack of self-worth. As I start to shuffle, that is my time to calibrate to Spirit. I listen for words of wisdom, and I watch the chair too. My Tarot Readings are often deep work in the body and connecting to the shadow work, body trauma, and emotional needs that have not yet been met. We talk about all the things! Often people find my work and book a tarot reading when they are at a crossroads in life and looking for a gentle nudge. Careers, life path, purpose, relationships, healing work all come up. A question during the reading, more often than not, is what am I supposed to ask? There is no one universal answer to this question. The message will come through the cold reading exactly as Spirit offers. At the end of our appointment I often offer a suggested reading list, journal prompts, or some form of aftercare. If the energy feels in the correct alignment, I will talk about upcoming programs or coaching if that comes up or is needed during our call. When our call is over I immediately disconnect my energy from yours as we leave the chat. I thank all spirits for joining us, then gently disconnect from their energy. I cleanse the room, space on the table, deck, and my body. The Tarot Reading is done, the messages are received, and the work has been completed.
5 Ways to Quiet Your Mind When You Can't Sleep
It can be challenging to quiet an overactive mind and get a good night's sleep. If you're struggling with insomnia, try these five techniques to calm your thoughts and get some rest. 1. Practice deep breathing exercises. Deep breathing is one of the quickest and most effective ways to calm the mind and body. When you're struggling to sleep, take a few deep breaths. Focus on the sensation of the air moving in and out of your lungs. 2. Visualize a peaceful scene. Close your eyes, and picturing a tranquil setting can help quiet your thoughts and ease your sleep. Imagine yourself in a beautiful meadow or by a calm ocean. Alternatively, try to recall a happy memory from your past. 3. Repeat a mantra or affirmation. Focusing on a positive phrase or statement can help keep your mind and quiet racing thoughts. Pick something simple and repeat it to yourself until you drift off to sleep. Some examples include "I am safe and loved" or "I am calm and at peace." 4. Listen to calming music or nature sounds. Sometimes, white noise or gentle music can help to soothe the mind and allow you to fall asleep. Many free downloads and apps are available with different kinds of calming sounds. Experiment until you find something that works for you. 5. Get up and move around. If you've been trying to sleep for more than 20 minutes with no success, it may be helpful to get up and do something else for a little while. Sometimes, trying too hard to sleep can keep you awake. Taking a break and reading or doing a relaxation exercise can help break the cycle and allow you to fall asleep more easily. When you're struggling with insomnia, trying different techniques to quiet your thoughts and promote sleep can be helpful. If you're still having trouble, talk to your doctor about other options that may be available to you.
