Textile Arts And Magic: Free Patterns

Embroidery, as all the arts traditionally carried through folklore and cultural heritage, contains a great amount of magic, symbolism, and references to spiritual entities and deities related to the culture they represent.

As if that was not enough, the very practise of any of these arts is a form of meditation and a source of wellness in itself, as it allows us to focus, be present, and clear our busy minds of clutter. In a time like the one we are all living now, this is more important than ever. To stop scrolling or cheking the news, and to sit with your art for an hour, is a blessing beyond measure, and a tool for deep healing like no other.

The patterns in this post were all designed by me a few years ago, and are perfect for beginner embroiderers. Cross stitch is very easy to learn, the materials are affordable, and can be done almost everywhere. It is the perfect first step to move on onto other types of embroidery.

Please feel free to download them and use them (personal use only, of course), and if you want to post your work online, I would be very grateful if you mention @carolinastextileart, the IG account where I post my needlework.

Preparing For The Mano Poderosa Ritual

With every new group ritual, I like providing magical tips that participants can use to take the ritual even further, align with its energy, and make the best of it. It is a wonderful way to practise and grow your own magic, and become a better practitioner, while leaving the heavy work to the professional.

On Friday September 10, I will be performing the Mano Poderosa ritual, focused on protection, empowerment, and personal success – if you are participating, the tips below are highly recommended. And remember, this is never an obligation, especially if you are busy, chronically ill, or have family in your care!

· Doing a smoke cleansing (or a floor wash if you are sensitive to smoke) of your entire home is a wonderful start. Pay special attention to doors, windows, dark or unused spaces, and cluttered areas.

· For the same reasons, a cleansing spiritual bath is also recommended. Fresh rosemary, coconut (both flesh and water), lemon rind, and salt, is always a winning combination.

· If you have specific altars related to protection, wards over your home, or tools or ornaments that represent protection, it is time to care for them, cleanse them and recharge them.

· If you don’t have any of the above, it may be time to create some. This is not mandatory for the ritual to work, but if the energy of the ritual has a physical element to hold on to, its effect will definitely be more lasting.

· Some magical elements with great protection energy are: iron, holy water, salt, gold, rosemary, rue, wormwood, garlic, chalk, grain alcohol, red string or ribbon, and obsidian.

Your Spiritual Currency

When I work for you, I am providing many things; connection to the Spirit realm, experience, the best materials money can buy, and such. But, there is one thing that I cannot provide for you, and that is just as important as any other ingredient in the spell: and that is faith.


Your faith in the Spirits is the most important power that you own – and it is a necessary one for the spell to work. Spirits will not allow being used; the money you pay is for the earthly part of the deal, but you cannot just *buy* the Spirits, no matter how much money you have.


Your faith is your currency, and just as there are certain requirements for currency to be legal, your faith has to be true, and it has to be strong, for the spell to work.


And remember: having faith does not mean believing in something’s existence. That is a given when it comes to spiritual work, and it is no merit at all to believe in what is already in front of you.


Having faith means believing that once you have presented your problem to the Spirits, whatever is happening, is happening for your highest good. That Spirits know better than you, and see further and farther than you.


Having faith is surrendering the outcome willingly, and stopping trying to control the future. Having faith is letting THEM direct the course, and following it with gratefulness.

Attention Customers: Spanish And French Decks Available!

***ATTENTION CUSTOMERS!***

I have four Spanish Decks, and four French Decks, ritualized and charged for use, at the shop.

To work at optimum performance, decks should be cleansed and charged before their first use. A ritual is performed so all residual energy from manufacturing is removed, and to charge it with a great amount of powerful energy – this way, the deck goes from being just a tool, to become a vehicle for the Spirits to communicate with us.

A properly cleansed and charged deck will just talk to you, loud and clear, and will give you details and insight beyond your own. Believe me, there is a huge difference between decks that have gone through this ritual, and decks just out of the package. If you have been feeling stuck with your divination skills, this may be the tool you need!

The cleansing and charging ritual is very time consuming, so this item will not be permanently available. Once they are gone, they are gone!

Each deck will be shipped with a bag of powder incense, formulated to cleanse the deck as needed, as you use it. Instructions on how to use the incense will be emailed to you after your purchase.

To get yours, please visit my website!

August 15, Feast Of Chaxiraxi

On Sunday 15, our islands will be celebrating the feast of Our Lady Of Candelaria, patroness of the whole archipielago. Our Lady is the Catholic syncretization of Chaxiraxi, the Guanche Mother Goddess, and one of the Black Madonnas of Spain.

Her main church (the Basilica), built on the city that bears her name, is placed on the exact same area where she was worshipped by the Guanches. This celebration happened at the end of August’s harvest festival, the Beñesmer, which usually coincides with the Perseid Meteor Showers, and other important astronomical events.

While this year, because of Covid-related restrictions, pilgrimage has been forbidden and the church will remain closed, on regular years people walk all through the night of the 14th through several traditional routes, to reach her sanctuary on the dawn of the 15th. Pilgrims also come from other islands, from mainland Spain, and even from other countries.

Along the entire day, there are parades, reconstructions of Guanche history and customs, and of course lots of partying, dancing, drinking, and eating, all in her honour. This is not a small celebration – the regular estimate of pilgrims is between 100.000 (one hundred thousand) to 150.000 (one hundred and fifty thousand) people!!!

I worship Chaxiraxi every single day of my life, as the main Goddess in my altar, and as one of the faces of pre-islamic Goddess Allat, mother of all North Africans – crowds are not for me, so I don’t participate in this event, but of course, this weekend we will be making special offerings to her at home, and showing her how much we love her!

In the pic, her statue at the Basilica, taken last year. Isn’t she gorgeous?

How Does Spiritual Trauma Affect You?

How does spiritual trauma affect you?

If the trauma has a supernatural origin, Susto can manifest as nightmares, visions of unfriendly ghosts, feeling of being watched, apparitions during episodes of sleep paralysis, etc.

If the trauma has a natural origin, Susto can manifest as extreme tiredness, muscle pain, headaches, blurry vision, insomnia, panic attacks, lack of appetite, etc. The symptoms, of course, have no physiological origin, and usually come and go without reason.

A third way Susto can manifest is what most people call a “bout of bad luck” – small accidents without reason, job loss, constant fighting with members of the household, obstacles at every turn, inability to focus on tasks, sudden breakdown of appliances and vehicles, etc – all happening is a short period of time.

Susto, at first, may not be as dangerous as the effects of a curse, but ignoring it is the worst thing you could do. I have seen Susto mark the beginning of extremely complex situations, as any mixture of these symptoms can easily and quickly snowball into very, very serious consequences; prolongued and serious physical and mental illness, all kind of addictions, homelessness, and of course spiritual haunting at all levels.

That is why the Susto ritual was created – to prevent trauma from going further, and ruining your life. To participate in the group ritual I will be offering on Friday 20th, just visit my website!

August 20: Susto Ritual, Third Edition!

After many requests, the third edition of the Susto Ritual is happening on Friday, August 20!

What Is Susto?

In Canarian Curanderismo, Susto (or Espanto) is a form of spiritual trauma caused by a sudden, terrifying event. This event can be natural or supernatural, and can have long and debilitating consequences.

Natural Causes: any form of trauma, car accidents, dangerous falls, physical fighting, an episode of being verbally or psychologically harrased, being attacked by an animal, the sudden death of a loved one, etc. Of course, the prolonged quarantine, and the stress of the pandemic, are more than justified causes for Susto.

Supernatural Causes: a spectral apparition, contact with a haunted space, a badly carried spiritual seance or ouija, powerful evil eye, accidentally crossing paths with a dangerous entity, etc.

The consequences of Susto are very varied, and can mimic a lot of illnesses, from very mild ones to very complex ones – fatigue, flu-like symptoms, depression, anxiety, nightmares, stabbing pain with no cause, etc. Also, of course, it can affect the rest of your life, in the shape of bad luck, loss of job and/or relationships, loss of investments, accidents, etc.

Along with my Spirit Guides, I have created a version of the traditional Curanderismo rituals that can be performed for a group of customers – after two extremely successful editions, and always under the guidance of Spirits, the third has been scheduled for Friday 20. As always, visit my website to get your slot!

You Are The Source

We begin a new cycle until July 30, when the 8th edition of the Fortuna Ritual will be performed, and as with every Service, my posts will be centered on the subject of the ritual – so, let’s talk about Money Magic!

When it comes to Money Magic, spellwork is not a magical solution (no pun intended), an excuse to be passive about your own life. If this is how you see it, you will never get anything out of it, no matter how much money you spend on it, no matter how powerful your spiritual worker is.

Think of Money Magic as you would think of an ally. Spellwork is there to help, to propitiate, to empower; not to put things on your lap while you do nothing for yourself. Magic creates an environment in which things can grow, protects you from the enemies of that growth, and gives you the strength to work through obstacles – but does not treat you like a poppet.

Being financially literate is your job, not the job of Money Magic. If you are actively working on your projects, your business, your goals, then you will be aligning perfectly with the energy of Money Magic, and opportunities to accomplish those goals will present themselves.

Let me say this again, because I think it needs to: when done by a professional, experienced spellworker, there is no spell that brings no results, there are only aligned or misaligned customers. Whether if you are ready to align with those results or not, that is up to YOU.

Magic puts you in the center. Magic makes you the source. Magic forces you to take action, to take control, to be fully accountable. Work hard, leave the magical procedures to a competent professional, and watch yourself bloom!

Manifestation Magic Tips

Every month, I try to match most of the posts to the intention of the upcoming group ritual, so new topics are discussed, and so participants can make the best of the energy that builds along, as I prepare the entire process.

This month’s theme is manifestation, as my next group ritual is the first edition of the Vibration Booster, a ritual focused on empowering and elevating your vibrational level – so, here are my favourite manifestation tips.

· Manifesting material goods is totally ok – when it comes to manifestation magic, being a puritan is not the way to go. Yes, the true goal of manifestation is reaching a heightened level of awareness, but if paying the bills is more urgent, then focus on that. Neither the Universe, nor the Spirits, are going to blame you for being poor, because there is nothing wrong with abundance, nor with enjoying it.

· Being grateful and passionate about our manifestation speeds results. Love is the greatest magic of all, its vehicle is our awareness, and our heart the catalyst of all transformation. Let the magic reach you, without criticism or cynicism.

· Understanding how much of our experience is created by our self-image is extremely important, and the root of all accountability. We cannot overcome our shortcomings unless we realize how often we are enabling ourselves into our worst habits.

· Manifesting is not asking for things to the future, and then waiting for them to happen. Manifestation is sovereignty over reality, and that requires a level of total responsibility. Better said, TOTAL RESPONSIBILITY.

· When it comes to creating something, there is no useless tool – traditional magic, non-traditional magic, affirmations, subliminals, listening to audiobooks or talks, meditation, martial arts… everything is there to help you. Use it all, and use it non-stop until you have reached your goal. And even beyond.

Of course, feel free to share, and if you want to participate in the Vibration Booster Ritual, and empower your manifestation skills, you can do so at:

Devotional Arts 2021 Challenge: The Process Of Painting Innana

Innana, the painting I’ve created for the #DevotionalArts2021 is finally finished! Joining this challenge has been extremely inspiring, and I could not be more thankful to Michelle Simkins for organizing it. Below, you can enjoy two collages of images that I took along the process of glazing the many layers of oils – actually, there are more layers than pictured, but I thought the posts would get too boring.

Please notice that the last one includes a frame test – it is a vintage frame with a wreath of roses, which seemed perfect for this lovely goddess.

Now, to rest for six months before it can be varnished – and me, onto the next piece. Don’t forget to check for the #DevotionalArts2021 tag on your social media!
