How to break a curse


This is an excerpt from an email response from a customer that was told by a psychic that she was cursed. I get many orders from those believing they are cursed because a psychic told them so. If I can help a few people avoid the scam that awaits them or the depression from the hopelessness of believing they are cursed, then my work will not have been in vain. Please share this w/ anyone who goes to psychics.

Hi!

Let me save you some worry. Your “psychic” is lying to you. It is a scam
used to gain control over you with fear. Bad things happen to everyone.
BUT….. when someone tells you that you are cursed, you begin to only focus
on the negative things that happen. A psychic scammer knows that this will
happen and soon u will be back to her for the “curse removal”. That’s when
she starts befriending you and working towards larger dollar amounts as your
trust grows.

Anyone who plays this scam is not a true psychic. They are a professional
scammer. if they told you anything that was true…. they managed to glean
the information through you by working the conversation strategically to
gather information through your comments, reactions and body language. These
scammers are trained to notice EVERYTHING about you. Your appearance alone
tells a book about you before you even sit down. They use this and build
upon it and gain your respect by telling you what is obvious. They read your
reactions and oven tho you don’t know it…. they have pried out more info
than the CIA could drag from you.

I know this b/c I could do exactly what they do. I would never hurt anyone
who was coming to me for hope and good news. I choose to empower people b/c
everyone has the ability to improve their life through faith in themselves.

Sure…. you can still use my tranquility spell candle if you want to because we all
have negativity in our lives which can be changed to positive. HOWEVER…. I
am telling you that you are NOT cursed. You are blessed! I want you to
believe this and focus only on the positive things that happen each day.
Keep a journal. As you do this…. you can create a snowball effect. You
have a choice….. the snowball effect for negativity (you are cursed) or
positivity (you are blessed)? Which do you want?????? Feed energy only to
positive and that is where you will head. Sometimes a flat tire is just a
flat tire b/c you put off the expense of new tires. That isn’t a curse….
that life. The only curse we have in life…. is the one we put on ourselves
when we believe we are curse and then feed energy to that thought.

This is why a strongly spiritual person like myself begs people to
avoid psychics. A seed planted in your head can grow into something very
beautiful… or something very horrible. Since I can’t tell you what a
psychic might say to you…. I choose to tell everyone to avoid them
altogether.

May you see only the blessings in you life and that you are strong enough to
gain control over anything negative!!!!! No spells needed…. Just faith!


Home Purification

A home purification should be done if you are moving into a new home. It doesn’t matter whether you are buying or renting, the idea is to remove any residual or negative energy left behind by the previous family. If you are renting, check to make sure it is ok with your landlord if sage is acceptable.

 You can also do a home purification if you believe your home has spirit activity (haunted). I have found that most times, a haunting is explainable with a little research (faulty wiring, mice in the walls or attic etc..). If in doubt, do a home purification. It certainly won’t do any harm. It will also clear away negativity that does gather in any home.

 If possible… Before you move  anything into your new home… place 8 pennies in your hand. Ask a blessing over them that they bring prosperity into the new home. While standing on the outside of the front door, toss them across the threshold and into the home. This symbolizes the infinite flow of wealth into your new home. This especially important if you have purchased a foreclosure or a home that had financial difficulties. Leave them lay where they fell until you have moved everything into the home. Gather them up and place them in a nice container. Place them in the area where you will be paying your bills. This is to keep the flow of abundance coming into to not just meet your present bills… but to create financial stability in your life.

 Supplies:

Sea salt, Sage smudge bundle, lighter, heat proof container to hold the sage

1.  Clean the house.

2.  Move the salt into the house. Salt brings good luck to the house .

3.  Now that the house is clean, it’s time to cleanse. Light the smudge stick and begin at the front door. Move around the house in a clockwise motion holding the smudge in front of you.

4.  When you reach a window circle the window counterclockwise asking that anyone or anything be barred from entering. Move the smudge over the window panes to make smoke “bars” across the window.

5.  When you reach an outside door, ask that only those with good intentions be allowed to enter and that any negativity is left outside. Don’t bar the door, but circle it counterclockwise with the smudge. This includes spirits.

6.  Throw a pinch of salt into dark corners or into rooms that you feel need more attention. Salt will help to remove negative energy.

7.  When you enter a room, travel around the perimeter making sure the smoke enters each corner.

8.  If you have an attic or storage space, bar the entrance as you did to the windows, asking that no one be allowed to enter. Spirits included.

9.  End your house cleansing at the front door where you started. Announce that the cleansing is complete and thank your angels for their participation.

10.  It’s customary to conclude a house blessing with a great feast, so bring out the food and drink

 If you are having trouble with spirit activity, you can recite the following incantation in every room of the house (including basement, attic, garage etc….):

 God/ess Bless this home

every nail and board and stone

 clear away energies that harm

Keep them away with this charm

Cleanse and purify this place

Help us create a sacred space

Bestow your loving blessings good

That this home be safe as it should

So Mote it be!

How to sell your home with a Sage Smudge Ceremony

 Right now, it’s pretty much a buyer’s market. If you have a home that you wish to sell, there are steps you can take to help attract a buyer. I can’t promise you that this will sell your home. But, it can’t hurt to try. If your house has been sitting on the market for awhile, you have nothing to lose.

 Mundane steps to be dealt with first to help sell your home

 First, you need a good qualified realtor… someone who is very familiar with the area and has experience selling homes. Make sure your realtor is dependable and has your best interest in mind. Remember…. They are to be representing you… not the buyer or themselves! Is your realtor listening to your questions and concerns? Do he or she understand what your needs and goals are? It doesn’t matter how nice your home is or how good of a price you have if your realtor isn’t doing his or her job.

 Second, clear out the clutter. Recycle or throw away junk. Give away or sell items that can be reused. I have found www.freecycle.org to be a very helpful resource for getting rid of stuff. You can also donate it to charity and write it off your taxes. Rent a storage unit for the things you want to keep. Remove all personal items like photos and artwork that might not appeal to the general public. Don’t feel bad about that… it’s your stuff going to your new home. Don’t let it stop your sale b/c someone just can’t imagine themselves making your home their own. Remove unnecessary furniture, kitchen appliances..etc… This includes books. Yes! Books I said! They make a room feel small and cluttered… pack them up and send them to the storage unit. Do not use the garage as a storage unit. If I’m looking at your home, I want to see that my car(s), tools, lawnmower etc…. will all fit in there. If I see your junk, then I’ll think your house is too small to suit my needs.

 Getting rid of these things does several things to your home:

  •  look bigger
  • look cleaner and more organized
  • more comfortable
  • more neutral so buyers can see their own possessions in the home
  • improves feng shui
  • makes it appeal to more people

 Negative energy tends to stagnate around clutter. Think of it like this. Imagine energy is air. Wherever air is likely to stagnate, so is energy. This is a bad thing when trying to sell your home because people feel this on a subconscious level. You want it to feel fresh, clean and inviting to those who enter.

 Once the clutter is cleared, give the house a very thorough cleaning. An unclean house means that you probably don’t do maintenance. That’s a red flag to buyers. If it’s too big of a task, hire a reputable person to do the job. Wash walls (or repaint), scrub carpeting, clean out cupboards and closets because buyers are going to look. You want it to look and smell CLEAN.

Spiritual steps to attracting a buyer for your home.

Once your home is decluttered, organized and cleaned, it’s time to move onto the spiritual part of things.

 Smudging is a traditional method used by indigenous people to clear away negative and residual energy. To “smudge” is to clean with smoke… a smoke bath. The smoke is generated by burning herbs believed to have spiritual properties the are desired. Sage is the most popular herb used in smudging. There are many varieties of sage. However, California white sage and desert sage are the most commonly used. It must be dried. If you have some that is not ground, you may be able to light it as it is. If it is powdered, then you will need charcoal tablets to burn it. However, the most common way to smudge with sage is with a smudge stick (also known as a smudge bundle or smudge wand) in which the sage has been cut and tied up into a little bundle. Sometimes, you will find sage sticks that are combined with other herbs such as lavender, cedar or sweetgrass. All will work just fine for the purpose of your smudge ceremony. If you are interested, these are the blends I carry on my website linked below.

  • Cedar is powerful protection and purification
  • Lavender is for love, peace and tranquility
  • Sweetgrass is to attract good spirits
  • Copal is a powerful resin for purification

 Supplies needed for the smudge ceremony:

 Sage smudge stick

Lighter (not matches)

Heatproof bowl (a big ash tray will work)

Sand (optional) – pour a ½” into the bottom of your bowl if it might get too hot. This will dissipate the heat.

Hand-held fan or feather (optional) – to fan the smoke around. You can also use your hand like I do.

 Important notes:

 Sage is difficult to keep lit. You may want to cut the bundle open and separate the sage into several smaller bundles (they tend to stick together naturally). The smaller bundle seem to burn better and give off more smoke (which is what we want).

 Always work counterclockwise to banish the negative energy.

 Ready to smudge?

 This is the pattern that you would smudge a home for sale. It can also be applied to any building you wish to sell.

  • Go to the highest part of your house and start there.
  • If you have an attic in which you can walk around, start smudging to the right of the entrance. Work your way counterclockwise toward the left of the entrance.
  • If your attic is a crawl space, fan a lot of smoke into the attic so it can reach all the corners and around anything stored up there.
  1. Work your way down to the next floor, keeping with the counterclockwise pattern. If it is the 2nd or 3rd floor, start to the right of the staircase smudging each room in the clockwise manner. Do this till you end up to the left of the staircase.
  2. Smudge the staircase.
  3. Do each floor the same way till you reach the ground floor. Skip the ground floor for now if you have a basement. Smudge the basement. Spend a lot of time here because basements can be like a dead end for energy. It can sit there and collect. That’s why basements are so creepy.
  4. Move back to the ground floor. Start smudging from the right side of the door, again moving room to room in a counter clockwise pattern… smudging each room counter clockwise.
  5. Work your way out the front door.
  6. If you have a porch, patio, gazebo etc…. smudge them.
  7. If you have a garage, workshop or pool house, smudge them as well.
  8. You can smudge the entire property if you feel comfortable enough to do it in front of the neighbors.

The actual smudge ritual is quite easy. It is little more than a Native American ceremony with a twist to it. The important thing is NOT to over complicate things. You cannot do this wrong. It is what is in your heart and your desire that makes it work. The actual steps aren’t that important. It is all about your intentions.

 This is the ceremonial part:

  1. Light the sage. If it doesn’t go out on it’s own, carefully blow on it. The goal is to get it to smoke and smolder. You can relight it as needed… hence the reason for a lighter over matches.
  2. Place the smoking sage into the heatproof container.
  3. Use you hand, fan or feather to GENTLY move the smoke to the areas to be cleansed.
  • Pay attention to corners, under and around furniture, cluttered areas and areas where negative energy might be really bad (like the place where you pay bills). Smudge inside of cabinets, the stove and fridge if they are being sold too. Think like a little kid playing hide and go seek. Where could a small child hide? Smudge it!

4.      As you walk around each room, you may want to ask for God, the universe, source or spirit to attract a buyer to your home. The Lord’s prayer is also quite popular for this. You can get creative… kindly ask you guardian angels, spirit guides and passed loved ones to help you make a spiritual connection with the buyer for your home.

5.      Be careful as you walk so as not to trip and burn the flooring. Walk slowly… fanning the smoke gently. Relight as needed. Stop walking when you want to say your prayer. As you smudge, envision this smoke as your desire going out into the universe and making a connection with a family who is looking for “just the right home” which happens to be yours.

6.      Take great care not to burn yourself or get close to curtains, fabrics or anything flammable. Don’t leave the smudge burning if you are interrupted. Remove pets and small children who may get in the way.  Keep in mind that smudging might be an issue for folks with allergies or asthma. Only you can decide if you want to risk  smudging knowing how it might affect them.

7.      An important step in selling your home is to release it. Let your home know that it’s time for you to move on. The home has served you well and it’s time for a new family to come in. Envision your desire going out into the universe and connecting with the right buyer. Thank your home for the protection, comfort and shelter it has provided. Give the home your blessings and tell it “goodbye”.

8.      When you are done, thank you angels, guides, loved ones, god and anyone else you believe has helped you with your ceremony.

 9. It’s a good idea to open the wondows and ait the place out after the smudging. The smoke smells somewhat like marijuana smoke and you don’t want to turn buyers off as soon as they walk in the door. You may even want to use something like Febreeze to clear out the odor.  Buyers may think that you were smokers which can be a big turn off.

I wish you blessings of good luck in the sale of your home AND in your new home!


Magick with the “k” refers to ritual magick rather than illusion magic. Illusions are used to fool the eye into believing that something impossible has just occured for entertainment. Magick is a conscious effort to manipulate energy toward a specific goal. Everything has energy, even thoughts. Your thoughts can be used to change the energy of a situation (I’ll get into this in another post). However, most magick is performed by the use of spells and/or ritual.

A magick spell is generally an easy series of gestures and incantations. It may require candles, incense, herbs, crystals, photos etc…. A spell may be done alone or within a ritual.

A ritual is a ceremony that can be quite detailed. In a Pagan ritual, certain things may be done. A sacred space is cleared and prepared for the ritual. This is done physically by cleaning the space of clutter and dirt… and then spiritually by clearing out negative and residual energy. This may be done by working counterclockwise to banish unwanted energy with a ritual broom which is followed by smudging with sage or ringing a bell, sprinkling salt (a good option for those who can’t tolerate smoke). Once the space is cleared, a circle is drawn clockwise. This might be an actual circle created with a rope… or a circle of salt… or a chalk line. It might just be drawn with the point of a ritual knife (athame) that creates an invisable line. Either way is just as good. In most rituals, the 4 directions/ elements are called and honored as teachers, protectors and guides. Often, candles and a symbol of the element is used in each quarter. Lastly, the deities are called to the center of the circle which might hold an altar of some sort (or a cloth). Most Pagans honor both male and female deities. They may have a favorite.. or call upon one that has certain qualities that might be helpful in the covenor’s request.  EX: If you wanted to become pregnant, you might called upon Gaia, Kwan Yin or Astarte. Candles and / or incense may be lit to honor and respresent the god/dess. Now the circle is complete so you are divinely protected and can use this protected space to work magick spells and / or do divination or to handle special needs. EX: consecrate tools, dedicate a covernor, send healing to someone etc… Most Pagans first raise energy through chanting, drumming and/ or dancing and then focus the energy raised to the activities done in circle. Ritual sex can also be done to riase energy when it’s appropriate. When you complete your work, you generally do the opening in reverse. Thank the gods and release them (extinguish candles representing them)… thank the elements and directions (extinguishing their candles and releasing them) and thank all energies that have offered their assistance. Remove the circle by working counterclockwise.

The good thing about doing ritual is that it empowers you greatly. Rather than sitting in church and observing a communion with God, you become your own priest(ess). You are in the driver’s seat. You learn and grow in ways that you would never believe. You directly commune with God.

The bad thing about ritual is that it is labor intensive and time consuming. This is especially true for those who have to work around family who doesn’t support their faith or those with small kids. So…. as far as magick is concerned, I encourage folks to do spells when they need them and to fit ritual in on important times of the year. It is better to do ritual less and be in a better frame of mind, then to do it because you feel like you are required to in order to have success.  I don’t want you NOT to do magick because it seems like too much work. Keep it simple and really make those rituals count when it’s important.

What does magick do? Magick is an advanced form of prayer. By working a spell or ritual, your mind is focused for that period of time. Magick can be performed through meditation. Unfortunately, most people do not meditate because it’s a challenge to keep the mind focused. Magick… keeps us focused with words and gestures.

How does magick work? This is my own opinion. I am a Virgo and have a very logical brain. I personally cannot wrap my brain around gods and spirits fixing my life because I lit a candle or recited an incantation. What I do believe (feel free to disagree) is that since everything has energy (including thoughts), I am consciously manipulating the energies that are connected to my issue in order to change them to suit my desire. I believe that the deities are simply energies that are related to my desire. So I can do a beauty spell to make me more attractive. It probably won’t change me physically, but it might make me FEEL more attractive. AND…. there is NOTHING more sexy than confidence! In this new confidence, I might start to lose a few pounds or feel and urge to get a make-over.  Basically, nothing has changed but my perspective. BUT…. in that shift, comes the desired affect. I feel more attractive and I become more attractive to others.

What a spell can’t do. A spell can’t make you an Olympic gold metalist if you are a couch potato. Magick can’t make you rich if you make bad financial habits and don’t like to work. Magick is NOT a quick fix or a cure-all. It brings awareness. But ultimately, it is all up to you. If you want change, then change your habits, choices and behaviors.  Use spells to help you help yourself. And while I have your attention, PLEASE do not believe in anyone who guarantees their spells and charges large amounts of money. Don’t you think they would be on Oprah if they could work these miracles!? The best person to work magick for you is YOU!
