How to Make an Amulet and Consecrate it
Any piece of jewelry or small trinket, stone, coin etc…. can be made into an amulet. An amulet is an item that is charged with psychic energy to attract a like energy. So if you want to make a money amulet, then use something that symbolizes money to you. This might be a coin, or jewelry with a certain type of stone that has to do with abundance, or it could be a gemstone that is known to attract money (iron pyrite, aventurine etc..). Once you have your item, now you can bless it. To do that, you hold the item in your hand and really concentrate on what you want this amulet for. Ask your deity(ies) of choice, angels, spirit guides etc… to send forth energy to empower your amulet. When you can feel that this has happened, thank them for their help…. And know deep within your soul, that help is on it’s way when the time is right and in the form that suits your needs best.
One thing you can do to make it easier… is to use incense, sage or burn herbs over charcoal tablets that support your desire. For example: patchouli, cinnamon and clove are money herbs. You can burn any one of them in the form of incense, candle or the actual herb to empower your amulet. Light the incense or candle and hold the amulet in the smoke (or warmth of the candle).
If you have purchased one of our spell amulets, as you hold the amulet in the smoke, recite the incantation on the pendant.
Over time, an amulet can lose it’s energy. You can repeat this mini ritual when you feel the need. It’s a good idea to do this monthly on the full moon (when the moon is at it’s strongest).
I wish you blessings of happiness, peace, prosperity, good health and love.
How to make a gem elixir
A gem elixir is water that has been charged with the metaphysical properties of one or more crystals and/ or gemstones. Creating a gem elixir is very easy and inexpensive.
§ 1 or more crystals or gemstones that possess the metaphysical properties that you are interested in. My website lists the qualities of many popular stones that are easily obtainable. www.alleghenycandles.com/crystal_meaning.html
§ a glass pitcher, jar or bowl
§ clean spring, well or mineral water – city water has many chemicals which makes unsuitable
1. Wash the crystal(s) with dish soap and water and rinse well.
2. Meditate with the crystals in your hand. Program them by telling them what it is you want them to help with (pain relief, attract love, lose weight etc….)
3. Place crystals in the bottom of the clean glass container
4. fill the container up to the desired level with water
5. allow the container to sit in a sunny window for at least 24 hours – it is even better if you choose the day of the full moon so you get a nicely balanced yin and yang energy to the elixir
6. Using a clean spoon, remove the stones from the water so they are not accidentally swallowed.
7. You can drink the water as it is.
§ You can also make it into herbal tea or other beverages. However, steer away from artificial sweeteners, colors and caffeine.
§ You can also rub the water on the area on the body that needs help.
§ Elixirs can be used on pets and plants too. Just remember to remove the stones so your pet doesn’t swallow them.
§ You can add the elixir to bath water
§ I’m sure you will think of other ways to put your gem elixir to use.
For added potency, you can handwrite positive and inspiring words and symbols and tape them facing into the container. For example: if you are trying to lose weight, you might draw a big minus sign.. and your weight goal… and words that make you think of being thin. Write it all down… and tape them facing into the container. Keep in mind that a glass container of water magnifies whatever is seen through it. So your words and symbols are magnified. This method of creating elixirs with water and words comes from Dr. Emoto’s Messages in Water. I highly recommend that you read it. Dr. Emoto photographed pictures of ice crystals on glass. He began to wonder what would happen if he played classical music to it. He was amazed that the crystals became more intricate and beautiful. He began to experiment with words like “love” and “gratitude” taped to the glass and found the same results. He tested water before and after being blessed by Monks.. and spring water from Lourdes to create incredibly beautiful crystals. He pondered what would happen if he taped negative words like “hate” or “war”. If crystals did form, they were distorted and ugly. Many times the water wouldn’t even form crystals…. Instead… the water appeared to become putrid. So imagine, if blessing water can improve it’s crystal formation, imagine what it will do for your body since you are more than 60% water.
