Saint John’s Eve: The Night Of Fire

instapromo006

Saint John’s Eve, which happens in the night between June 23 and June 24, is one of the most magical nights of Canarian folklore. This tradition predates the Spanish invasion – the Guanches believed that the days around the summer Solstice were specially propitious for meeting the Dead, who would return briefly from their as human-shaped mists coming from the sea.

Today, Saint John’s Eve is entirely devoted to the power of fire and its ability to clean negativity; bonfires are made of old furniture and all kinds of salvaged wood, which is amassed during the previous weeks. Anything that we want to get rid of is added to the bonfire – the most common additions are old clothes, papers with things written on them that they want to forget or finish, and students’ school papers as the school year has just finished.

The bonfires are started at dusk, as people start to gather around them. By midnight, after the wood has been consumed and the bonfires are reduced to burning coals, the tradition asks to jump over them three times to be cleansed of all negative energy for the whole next year. If the bonfire is made in a beach, which is quite usual, the tradition calls for three baths in the sea after jumping over the coals, to assure the good luck of the following year, and the banishing of all evil spirits; the baths must be taken facing the beach, not facing the sea, so the waves can take all negative energies away from us.

In Puerto De La Cruz, my mother’s hometown, Saint John’s Eve’s central celebration is the bathing of the goats, a ritual where thousands of goats are led to the beach to be bathed and purified for the next year – a truly beautiful celebration, that is celebrated to this day.

The whole night, of course, is full of magic from dusk ’til dawn – here are some of the most witchy traditions:

  • That night, place a big bowl of water outside. Before the sun comes up, but when there is light enough to see a bit, look at yourself in the water. Whoever that does not see his/her image, won’t live to see another night of San Juan unless he/she gets help from a Bruja immediately.
  • If you have seen your image in the water, use said water to wash your face; it is the best beauty aid you will ever try. You can bottle the rest of the water and use it as blessed water too. I add 10% of vodka, to preserve it well.
  • The night of San Juan is the night of divination; the most common method is lighting a white candle and putting a glass full of water between you and the candle. On the glass, break an egg that has been laid that day and study the figures that the egg and the water form, much like when making tea leaf readings.
  • Whoever is holding a branch of fern during the midnight, will be lucky for a whole year. The fern branch must be hung over the front door before the sun comes up on the 24th.
  • At midnight, place a candle between you and a mirror. You will see your funeral behind your reflection in the mirror, for a brief instant.
  • Any woman looking to be pregnant in a year shall wear wormwood in a sachet next to the skin while jumping over San Juan’s bonfires.
  • Choose three small potatoes with similar shapes and, in a jug filled with water, put one completely peeled, one half-peeled and one as it is. Place the jug under your bed; when you wake up the morning of the 24th , and before you put your feet on the floor, reach the jar without looking and take one potato, the one you first touch. If it’s peeled, your husband will be poor; if it’s half peeled, he will be just rich enough to support the family; if you get the unpeeled one, your husband will be very wealthy.
  • Instead of potatoes, there is also a spell made using paper bits with the names of the “competitors” for a woman’s heart. The paper bits are rolled and placed in a jug of water; the morning of the 24th, one paper will be unrolled and floating over the water; the name on that paper will be the name of the girl’s husband.
  • The name of the first man you see on the street right after you wake up on the morning of the 24th, will be your husband’s name.

Attention Customers: Presenting The Celestial Love Ritual

Celestial Love 001

The Celestial Ritual is dedicated to the presence of Angels in our lives. Angels are our protectors, always on our side, watching over us from the beginning to the end of our incarnation on this earth. They guard us, help us, provide opportunities for us, and keep us from negativity and dangerous entities. To have a powerful relationship with them is to be shielded against almost anything, and blessed with their endless gifts.

The goal of this ritual is to empower, strengthen, cleanse, and recharge your connection to your Guardian Angel, and through Them, to all other angelic entities. As with my previous group rituals, this will be achieved through the appropriate offerings, a completely unique altar setting, and of course my spellcasting, a skill that I have refined for almost three decades of magical work.

Strengthening this relationship will increase your level of protection against illness (physical, mental, and spiritual), empower you at all levels, make you less vulnerable to toxic people and dangerous entities, give you more energy, drive, and clarity, and more – there is truly no limit to the amount of blessings you can receive from this ritual.

Feng Shui After A Pandemic: Re-Energize Your Home

As many of you know, I am a certified Feng-Shui practitioner. When I look back at these past months, one of the most significant things I see is how important my knowledge of this Chinese tradition has been to overcome the stress of the quarantine.

To be able to keep my home flowing with positive Chi has helped me keep my mind and soul above the water, has kept my business going on, and have kept us safe and healthy. And now, as the quarantine begins to ease, our most important task is to rebuild ourselves in every way – we need sunshine, we need exercise, we need family and friends. But, what about our homes? What are the consequences of a quarantine for the space around you?

Most likely, your home is depleted of positive Chi (because of being occupied all the time), filled with stagnant energy (because of the lack of outside energy coming in – no visits, no shopping, no celebrations or family traditions), and in deep need of being renewed and re-energized. Here are some Feng Shui tips you can use:

· Open all windows and doors, and let Chi flow. You must imagine Chi as water – it fills from floor to ceiling, and meanders around furniture. Do you think that there are areas where that flow could be improved? Work on them.

· Clean. Dust, wash, refresh, renew. Stagnant Chi is a big cause of illness, mental, physical, and spiritual; and nothing makes energy stagnant like cluttered spaces that are never moved.

· Cheating doesn’t work on Feng Shui. Inside closets and cupboards, in your garage, under the stairs, on the attic – if that is a mess, it does not matter how many candles you light, or how fancy your altars are. Where there is no true harmony, there are no true results.

· Some points to check are always: stuff behind doors (they block opportunities coming in), refrigerators and stoves (must be clean and clutter free at all times, as they represent our wealth), electronics on the bedroom (as it should be a place of rest and quiet energy), and bathrooms (too many drains, too much Water energy).

· After cleaning, re-energize and feed the Chi. Create altars and spaces for contemplation and meditation, light incense and candles daily, display your crystal collections where they are reached by sunlight, and make all the space around you serve harmony.

· Some tools to help you used commonly in Feng Shui are: mirrors (they must be reflecting something beautiful, and never your bed), figurines of birds (always in pairs, represent true love), golden goins threaded with red ribbon (obviously, for good financial fortune), chimes (their sound elevates Chi, so never hang them against the wall), and water fountains (as chimes, their sound improves Chi).

· Pay special attention to living things – plants and pets are living transformational tools for Chi, and when they are happy, they change the space around them, and they change you. When you give them the best quality of life they can have with you, they turn into magnets for good fortune and happiness.

The most important point is: Feng Shui is not about putting Chinese folk objects around the house – Feng Shui is about the harmony between the land, your home, and you. Bad Chi in your home will reflect in your life, in the shape of illness, messy relationships, and lack of development at all areas; just so, positive Chi will reflect in good health, happy relationships, and prosperous businesses.

Spirit Message: Life Is Your Job

DSCN5038

If you think that your Guides, Ancestors, and Spiritual family are there to be your babysitter, you are completely wasting the very purpose of their presence in your life.

You did not come to this incarnation to be taken by the hand, and guided safely through it, never facing fear or danger. That is the fantasy a small child has about their parents – but, you are not a child, and you don’t live in a fantasy.

Spirits are there to guide, to advise, to comfort, to strengthen you, but never to keep you from what you must experience in order to become the fully realized human being that you came to this plane of existence to be.

In Espiritismo, we believe that you chose to incarnate, and you came into existence with the mission of experience the full spectrum of life, its bliss and its pain, the laughter and the tears, the passion and the emptiness – everything.

And the Spirits will not keep you from that: quite the opposite, will often push you towards things that will test you, to help you grow and evolve. And yes, they will be by your side while you navigate those tests, but that does not mean that they will save you from them, or that they will babysit you through them.

To live life is your job, not theirs – they already did that! Life is the gift that has been given to you, and the choices you make will transform that gift into something worthless, or into a treasure of wisdom and love. And for that, you already have the biggest advantage of all: a heart. Keep it clean, keep it open, keep it giving, and keep it grateful, and it will become stronger and stronger, able to absorb the wonder that our very awareness is.

Green Rice, And Don Juan Del Dinero

DSCN6614

This week, I am working on several magical products for the Fortuna Ritual, which is focused on attracting financial success and protecting your wealth. One of those products is a new and unique batch of Green Rice, a staple on Afro-Latin magic when it comes to prosperity magic.

The first step is, of course, choosing the best rice I can find – all my customers know that I do not cut corners when it comes to spellwork, and that I work very hard to give each product the best quality ingredients that money can buy. The one you see above is an organic wild rice, one of my favourites. It has been dyed with Holy Water and green powder pigment, the same pigment used to make paints. Once dyed, it is purified, and charged for its purpose for the first time.

After that, many ingredients are added to it before it actually becomes Green Rice; each time ingredients are added and mixed, more charging sessions happen, until it is bursting with energy, and ready for the Fortuna Ritual.

DSCN6628

This picture (and the one below) are from this morning – asking Don Juan Del Dinero to bless the Green Rice, now that it has been finished with real gold leaf bits, shredded banknotes, and a secret mixture of powdered herbs, roots, and spices. We love him very much, and he gets offerings regularly in our Services and Misas, but of course, we gave him a jar of the Green Rice for himself, because he asked. You know a product is top quality when even the Spirits want some!

In case you did not know, Don Juan is part of the Court of Don Juanes, a group of Spirits in our branch of Espiritismo comprised of spirits of Venezuelan folklore. These is a Don Juan of Money, of Love, of the Crossroads, and even of specific places. These are not archetypes – in ATRs there is no such thing. They are all living entities.

Reflections: For All Of You

DSCN1624
As Spain reaches over a month of full quarantine, I hear and read exhaustion all around me, and I feel that the need of my loved ones for comfort and advice is bigger than ever. And above all, I see that the more disconnected a person is from their spiritual dimension, the worse this situation is affecting them, and the less tools they have to live through it.
Before I go on, let me make this very clear – this is not one of those posts about shaming people for ther choices, or for their fear. I would never go that route, and I am disgusted by anyone who is using this situation to do that. You can be sure you will never get that kind of content from me, because as someone who went through the deep end of mental and physical illness for two decades, I know extremely well what it is to be on the receiving end of that shame. You cannot imagine how much I want to say “now you see what life was for me” to everyone I know – I won’t, of course, but yeah, I will not deny that I want to.
This is a worlwide nightmare, that will cost many people their mental health, and that will cause PTSD symptoms to many others for as long as they live; after one pandemic ends, we will have another, and one that worries me a lot, because it will mainly go unseen, and will mainly affect the poor, the marginalized, the different, the forgotten.
If there ever was a time when having a powerful Spiritual practise in your life was important, it is now. This is about having something in your life to hold on to, that comfort you and saves you from despair. This is about resting your pain, your uncertainty, your fear, in the arms of your Ancestors, your Spirit family, your Deities, the Universe – and letting it rest there, where it does not crush you, because they have power and strength that we do not have now.
So work, work, work as much as you can and with all your strength to keep that Spiritual Connection alive, and lean on it as much as you need. Do not censore or belittle your feelings – feel them, let them tell you what they have to say, and remember that no feeling lasts forever. Meditate, light candles, pray, dance, paint, create, garden, sing, and do anything in your power and within your ability to not allow the enemy to win. That is what saved me through the illness, and that is what can save you too.
And, if you are a spiritual leader, I urge you to share content that is positive and uplifting while being non-shaming, because it is so needed right now. Also, I urge you to take care of yourself with every tool that you have – because the world needs you strong, healthy, and doing the good work for those who need you.

Facing Stressful Times: Advice

DSCN0163

 

How do we, as spiritual-oriented people, face this Coronavirus situation? Here is some advice for those of you who may be feeling extra anxious, and need some guidance to come back to:
 
· First of all, remember that you are staying home to help others, to keep others healthy, to keep hospital space available for those who may need it more than you. Rejoice in the fact that you are serving the world. Instead of focusing on fear, focus on your kindness, focus on humanity doing this sacrifice together.
 
· Also, remember that your Spiritual family is always with you and yours. Do not pray in fear, but in gratefulness for their protection and presence. Gratefulness makes you stronger.
 
· Turn to your passions – tend your garden, binge watch your favourite series, knit that sweater you’ve been putting away because you didn’t have time. Do movie marathons, game nights, allnighters by candlelight.
 
· Disconnect from media several hours every day, and filter out anyone who’s profitting from your fear. Use that time to connect with whatever feeds your soul, like your favourite music.
 
· Take care of your body as much as you care for your soul. Take the time to pamper yourself: do a hair mask, concoct a body scrub, take herbal baths. Also, take care of the inside – cook the food you never have time to cook, drink herbal teas and fruit juices, take your vitamins. Nap every day.
 
· Give time to your home. Make it your temple, your holy space, your fun place, your love place.The energy around you is extremely important during this period.
 
· And, last but not least (at all), take this time to tell your loved ones how much you love them. Giving love, and feeling loved, is wonderful for your whole being.
