What Should be My Focus On This October’s New Moon?

New Moon Blessings

What should be my focus on tonight’s New Moon? During New Moons is always a good time to go with in and take inventory ourselves. What we have done, where we are going, what do we want?

During this month’s new moon it is a time to take personal responsibilities for the things that occur and are occurring in your lives. It is a time in which we are seeing the realities of our own lives and how our own actions causes the Universe to react and others. We can see clearly where we have been our worst enemies and where we have sabotage ourselves. So for me personally I think it is a great time to look at what we don’t like and see what is the root believe that is responsible and let go of that believe that no longer serve us. The last step and most important one is to forgive ourselves and others.

So with all this information what kind of magical works will you be doing this evening?

Mabon is Almost Here, Are you Ready?

Most of you know this date as the first day of Autumn! I can always feel the arrival of the new season in my body . I feel the excitement in my solar plexus. I always have a need to clean, clean and clean! It is part of my personal ritual to get ready to welcome the new season. In this case Autumn have always been my favorite season of the year. Not only because Halloween and Thanksgiving are celebrated during this time but it has always been, a feel good special time for me. As I look outside my window I can see the small changes all around!

As my nesting mode kicked in on high gear I decided to journey and ask my helping spirits what would be the best way to get my house in order for the upcoming new season. They were very helpful and they said that I should cleanse my home using the drum and to use water afterwards to invite the good spirits into my home.

Once I was done with my journey I did a little research in my BoS (Book of Shadows) to see what herb or oil I can add to my water to bless my house with once the cleaning was done. I found that I have Tahitian Gardenia infused oil and that Tahitian Gardenia is known to attract  good spirits, provide protection and bring peace, which are all good vibrations and qualities that I welcome in to my home. Tahitian Gardenia is also associated with the element of water, so using water as the mode of delivery was a great idea. I began to brainstorm on the best way to get the oil in the water and so I decided to make a salt to dissolve in the water.

Tahitian Gardenia Home Blessing Salt

  • 1/4 cup of Sea Salt
  • 1/4 cup of Epsom Salt
  • 1/8 cup of Baking Soda
  • 10 drops of Tahitian Gardenia Infused Oil

Mix all of the ingredients in a sandwich bag and store in a tight lid container. When ready to use place 1 tablespoon of the salt in a spray bottle and shake well until it is fully dissolved. Smell it and if it needs a bit more add some more! I prepared mine and left on my altar for 2 days charging before using it. The great thing about making the gardenia salt is that now I can also use it as a bath for myself after I do my own cleansing!

Now I am ready to clean my home! I started by physically cleaning the floors, the bathrooms, the walls, the kitchen, my house was spotless! But it was late at night (around 8pm) and I was concerned about my drumming bothering my neighbors. I had my husband step outside and see if he could hear the drum going and he said you can hear it but muffled. That made me a bit worried but I moved forward and hoping that I would not be visited by the Sheriff! I cleansed my home with my drum for the first time and then I proceeded to bless it with the gardenia water I prepared. My house smelled and felt fabulous!  I really enjoyed cleansing my home this way. Now my home is ready for the new season!

Please! always check further into any ingredient listed in my recipes and make sure that it doesn’t post any health risk to you and your family. My intent with posting them in my blogs is to share with you what I do and how I do it. If you would like to try any of them for yourself make sure you do your research first! If you do end up trying any of them please leave a comment and let me know how it went. 🙂

What do you do to get ready for the upcoming season change? How do you cleanse your home?

Hope to hear from you!

The Card of the Day is Solar Plexus Chakra!

Today it is a nice gray day out which is influencing me to be a little lazy! I have been working so hard in getting everything ready for the new school year that I have had very little time for myself. Today I have a list of errands that I need to run however I am feeling the desire of letting them wait just one more day! 🙂 So I sat at my desk with psychic deck at hand and asked my guides, guardians and the Universe to share with me a message that I should keep in mind. My intent was to draw one card and the card that I drew was the Solar Plexus Chakra card.

For those who are not familiar with this Chakra it is located between the sternum and naval (I usually identify it where I feel my butterflies). It’s color is yellow in color and its Sanskrit name is “Manipura” which means “Lustrous Gem”. It is ruled by the element of fire and it’s ruling planets are Mercury, Mars and the Sun. The signs related are Leo, Aries and Gemini. Some stones that you can use to invigorate this Chakra are Rhodocrosite, Sunstone, Tiger’s Eye, Citrine and Calcite. The key words to this card is “I CAN” this Chakra rules your personal power and wisdom.

I know exactly why this card was my message of the day. As of September 1st  I am embarking on my journey of helping others and as a good air sign that I am, I tend to over think things. I always can come up with a reason on why I am not ready, though I feel a great urge (and push from my higher self)  to  help others. Many people have found my help useful and many have encourage me to go down this path but why, oh why do I keep questioning how capable I am? The reason is because I over think things. I keep thinking one more workshop, one more book… But the truth is that I am ready, I am ready to start getting the experience of helping others. After all what value does it have for me to acquire so much knowledge if I am not going to share it with others or allow others to benefit for it as well.

So this is what I have to say to the Universe! Watch out here I come! I am going to roll up my sleeves and help those that want or need my help. I am going to start acquiring the practical knowledge. I be honest, I am scared to embark on something so important to me. I am scared to put myself out there but how can I live my life and not do so? One of my first official steps was to get the support of my husband and family which was not difficult at all. My husband was the one who I attribute of re directing me back to my path. I remember him encouraging me to take a basic psychic class at Kindred Spirits. When he picked me up he said that I was glowing of happiness! and I was. It felt as if I had found once again something that I had lost. From there on I have just been growing more and more. The next big important step was to notify my Aunt Anna about my decision to walk this path. In my family in every generation there has been one that has been called to do the work and no one of my generation had claimed the path. So when I called her on the phone (she lives in NYC) and told her what my intentions were and the path which I have committed myself to walk, she was so very happy! I was beside myself to receive her blessing and acceptance. It meant the world to me to hear my aunt be so happy that of my generation, I was the lucky one to hold torch. She has always been an inspiration to me and others, and I am blessed to have her support. Now if my mom could only be so happy and open! She is a devote 7th Day Adventist and though she is accepting of the craft she has difficulty with accepting my different views and believes.

So what is this card telling me? It is telling me to be strong and to know that I CAN be of service to others! So what does message mean to you? In what aspect of your life does the I CAN attitude be applied to? What and how have you been doubting yourself? Are you judging yourself too harshly? Are you limiting yourself? I Say go forth! Follow your passion! Live the life you want and may you find happiness and fulfillment in it. If you want to share some of your “I CAN” moments with me, feel free to leave a comment!

Feeling crafty!

Today when I woke up I heard my magical essential oils calling my name! So I got my household to do’s out of the way and went happily downstairs to get my crafting done!

I got my work area organized, I pulled out my oils and vials and got my BoS. My Book of Shadows is where I keep all my valuable information about herbs, oils, stones that I own and my crafting recipes, now I am ready to go! The first blend that I worked on was a Divination Oil, sometimes when you are going to do a reading it is nice to dab your 3rd Eye with an oil that will enhance your performance by opening you more to receive the messages.

The way I craft in making my own blends is to first look for the qualities that I am looking for in the oils that I currently own (that way I don’t keep buying new ones 🙂 which my hubby is very thankful for. So this is the list of oils that I own that have the qualities that I was looking for:

  • 7 drops  Blood Orange – divination
  • 1 drop    Clove Oil – divination
  • 1 drop    Ginger – power
  • 2 drops  Rose – psychic power, love divination
  • 1 drop    Wormwood – psychic power, calling spirits
  • 3 drops  Sandalwood – protection, spirituality, tension reliever

Now I that I had my oils identified I let my creativity loose. I lined my oils in front of me and I started to craft away! I created my base oil from 3 different base oils, Almond for wisdom, grapeseed for mental powers and Sesame to open my 3rd Eye. I got about 1.5 ml of each then I blended them together.

I started with Blood Orange I placed 3 drops visualizing a successful connection, then I added the Clove Oil with the same intent but the smell was strong so one drop was more than enough! I added Ginger oil visualizing the mixture glowing with power. I added 2 drops of Rose Oil because it smells good but it also has 2 qualities that I wanted to tap in to, so I visualized both combined, me being psychically opened to messages specially when they are in regards t o love. Wormwood Oil has a very strong woodsy scent and though I wanted to call upon 2 qualities one drop was more than enough for me. I visualized being psychically opened and good helpful spirits coming to my aid. Then I added Sandalwood with the intent to call in protection during the reading, bring spirituality and relive any tension that may be present during the reading. So I mixed it and gave it a good smell and it wasn’t quite right so I felt that more blood Orange was needed so I added 4 more drops and then the scent was just right!

My intuition said to add some herbs to the Divination Oil which I chose Mugwort to add more psychic power and protection and Yarrow’s psychic powers and exorcism qualities (so no negative energies stick around). When I craft I like to have a balance of elemental forces and the act of divination alone is of air quality, I am an air sign so the oils and herbs that I chose were all a combination of the absent elements, fire, water and earth.

I repeated the same process one additional time as I crafted a Dream Oil. I love to sleep not only because my body needs to get a good rest but also because that is a time in which I am able to connect with spirit and even visit other worlds. So I wanted to create an oil that I can wear prior to going to sleep that will aid me in my nocturnal journeys! However you don’t want to journey every night, then you won’t be getting enough rest.

Here is my recipe in case you want to try it out for yourself.

Prophetic Dream Oil

  • Almond Base
  • 3 drops of Jasmine – prophetic dreams
  • 1 drop of Rose Oil – stress and tension reliever
  • 4 drops of Lavender – prophetic dreams
  • 1 drop of Rosemary – to drive away nightmares
  • Pinch of Mugwort – prophetic dreams, psychic powers and astral projection
  • Pinch of Vervain – protection, sleep and peace
  • Bud of Jasmine – prophetic dreams
  • Pinch of Angelica – Prophetic dreams, protection and visions

Remember when you craft your oil blends to visualize which quality you want to call upon.

Well I have to go and get dinner done. I hope you have enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed writing it! Let me know if you made these oils and how they have worked for you!

Blessed Be )O(
