March Lovescopes

This month, I decided to focus on love. I pulled some Thoth tarot and Healing with Angels oracle cards for each sign.  There are two readings for each sign, because one reading is for singles, and the other is for people who are in relationships.

If you are single:  2 of Cups – Retreat
Capricorn, keep your heart open and be ready for love when it comes to you, which is not necessarily now. In the meantime, use this quiet period to reflect on the lover you seek. Write out a list of all the qualities you want and the relationship you want to have with this person.

If you are attached:  4 of Cups – Serenity
Capricorn, enjoy your relationship and learn to appreciate the moments you have together. Stop thinking about the future and just stop and smell the roses. There is no need to compare your relationship with others. It’s yours, so focus on yours only. Don’t forget to spend quality time together.

If you are single:  7 of Cups – Surrender & Release
Aquarius, it may seem like you can’t see the forest through the trees right now regarding your love life. And you’re right. The Universe is keeping your love life under wraps. Let go of any worries to the Universe. It has your back regarding love.

If you are attached:  The Emperor – Abundance
Aquarius, there may be some control issues in your relationship right now, and this might have to do with a disconnect when it comes to how each of you see gender roles. Make sure you are on the same page and don’t be afraid to communicate with each other regarding these roles.

If you are single:  3 of Disks – Harmony
Pisces, you could be meeting new people at work or through your business contacts. But I also sense that you need to work on yourself as well. There is some healing that needs to take place before you enter your next relationship. You may feel triggered by things related to love. That’s a sign that a wound needs to be healed once and for all.

If you are attached:  The Devil – Trust
Pisces, you are going to have some hot, emotionally powerful sex with your partner this month, which could even lead to a pregnancy. You may want to be extra careful if you don’t want to conceive. This energy will really bond you to each other. If your relationship was on shaky ground, this may solidify and stabilize it. This is the type of sex that will make you realize you are meant to be.

If you are single:  Prince of Disks – Enchantment
Aries, you may want to sign up for some outdoor events and hiking treks this spring. You will be meeting potential mates outdoors. In the meantime, get out there. Say yes to every invite. Socialize and have fun. And if the weather is right, go to places where there are groups of people outside like parks and river paths. Your next partner could be somebody you meet next to the water.

If you are attached:  Ace of Disks – Truth & Integrity
Aries, this year, you and your partner are on solid ground emotionally and financially. Abundance is yours. You’ve both worked hard to get to this place, so be proud of yourselves and each other. Teamwork is the reason why you are both successful. Never forget that. Now enjoy the fruits of your labor.

If you are single:  5 of Cups – Archangel Michael
Taurus, something may not have panned out the way you had wanted to this year. And that’s okay, because there is something much better on its way to you. Know that you are loved and protected by your angels and spirit guides. Archangel Michael asks you to call upon him whenever you feel scared or would like protection against negativity.

If you are attached:  Queen of Cups – Dreams
Taurus, it’s okay to dive into your emotions this month with your partner. Let them know that you love and appreciate them through your actions. Make a romantic gesture, text them a sexy picture that says “I love you”, buy them a little gift because you know they will like it. Pay attention to your dreams. Intuitive messages are coming through heavily this month.

If you are single:  5 of Disks – Intention
Gemini, you aren’t attracting anybody right now because your’e dealing with money issues, which should clear up in about 8 months from now. The best thing you can do is set an intention to manifest abundance and be clear. Write down what you wish to manifest every day/week/month/year. Have faith that you are manifesting money. Daily money affirmations would benefit you.

If you are attached:  Queen of Swords – Signs
Gemini, you may not be feeling that lovey dovey this month, because you are focused on goals and striving toward financial success. Make sure your partner knows that you are not distancing yourself from them emotionally and that you are just busy trying to build a better life for the two of you. Ask for signs related to new financial/business opportunities, then pay attention.  A bird or another animals that crosses your path may be tied to a business logo.

If you are single:  9 of Swords – Divine Guidance
Cancer, you may be having a difficult time this month on an emotional level. Decipher what is real and what are your fears creeping in. Fear creates illusions, so you may not be seeing love situations clearly. You may want to step back and assess. Don’t be afraid to ask your spirit guides and angels for Divine Guidance. Don’t make any hasty decisions related to your love life.

If you are attached:  The Wheel of Fortune – Freedom
Cancer, if a relationship is starting to feel toxic and stifling you, it may be time to move on. A cycle is ending. Change is coming. If this relationship feels more like a prison than a sanctuary, this is the perfect time to jump ship. A new and better relationship is on the horizon if you choose this out. If you decide to stay in this relationship, it may improve in 9 months. Remember, you have options.

If you are single:  8 of Disks – Friendship
Leo, your focus shouldn’t be on playing the field right now, but on your own mental stability and finding possible romantic connections through existing friendships. The love you seek may be with somebody you already know. Have fun with friends and stop trying hard to find love. Love will find you. For many, it will be in about 7 months.

If you are attached:  10 of Disks – Power
Leo, you and your partner are building wealth. There is no need to shake things up by making any serious decisions. It’s not the best time to buy that house or start that business. The energy will be better for purchasing property in 5 months. Wait it out, and just enjoy each other in the meantime. The energy of your union has the power to manifest anything you two want. You may want to explore sex magick. Use the energy before your climax to manifest your shared goals.

If you are single:  7 of Swords – Manifestation
Virgo, you’ve got way too much on your mind these days to be able to give your energy to partner right now, so feelings of loneliness may be weighing on your mind. This is temporary energy, so there’s no need to fret. Keep your thoughts regarding love and your next partner positive and focus on what you want and not on what you don’t. You are manifesting a partner very quickly whether you realize it or not.

If you are attached:  8 of Swords – Study
Virgo, you may not be letting your partner in emotionally because you are too focused on learning. This could be you going back to school and not having enough time or energy to give your partner/relationship, or it could be you wanting to learn new things, or engaging in newly discovered passions that are leaving your partner out in the cold. You need to learn how to balance the two. Don’t forget to show your partner love especially when they seem needy.

If you are single:  Queen of Wands – Answered Prayer
Libra, whatever you have been trying to manifest within these past 3 months regarding love is coming to fruition. And with this manifestation comes a transformation of sorts. You may be feel pulled away from certain aspects of your life to focus on yourself. If your focus is normally business and all of a sudden you want to go on a retreat, do it. This is all part of the process of leveling up and upgrading your life before you meet your partner.

If you are attached:  2 of Swords – Music
Libra, you are enjoying the harmonious flow of your relationship. You and your partner are getting along, and you may be hesitant to rock the boat by voicing your opinions, especially if this is a new relationship that hasn’t solidified yet. This could also point to the “Where is this relationship going?” discussion. It’s not the right time to bring this up. Spirit wants you to enjoy this love song that is your relationship. It’s romantic and light. The timing for this conversation will be better in 4 months.

If you are single:  Prince of Cups – Trust
Scorpio, you need to trust in the Divine plan right now. Your love life is a puzzle, and the Universe is assembling it very carefully. Have patience. Keep your heart open and if you are feeling close off, engage with your friends more. Going into hermit mode would not serve you well. You need to be in an open heart space to meet the right one for you. For many of you, you will meet your next serious partner in 7 months. Keep yourself open to love and all its possibilities. Your new love might not be what you wanted, but in the best way.

If you are attached:  The Moon – Playfulness
Scorpio, you may feel some heavy, confusing energy in your relationship, like you don’t know where it’s going and how your partner is feeling. There is an illusory quality to this. You aren’t seeing your partner clearly. The confusion will dissipate once you stop worrying about it. In the meantime, show your partner you are listening to them. Date nights are highly recommended to connect. Even planning a romantic weekend away, especially if you have kids, would do wonders for both of you. Black lace lingerie and heels will snatch somebody’s soul.

If you are single:  The Sun – Power
Sagittarius, you know that song “I’ve Got the Power” by Snap? Well, if you don’t, you need to listen to it ASAP, because that’s you and yes, you have the POWER. You are a radiating light to many potential suitors right now. You have that oomph, that good juju, and it’s making them go wild for you. You need to be going out and embracing this energy. You can’t meet anybody sitting on the couch. If you are feeling insecure about your looks, daily beauty affirmations will change your outlook and life.

If you are attached:  Prince of Wands – Ideas & Inspiration
Sagittarius, you are feeling sexy and ready to take on the world because your relationship is breathing life into you. You may have had issues with your partner within the past 7 months, particularly related to somebody cheating. You are both moving past that and ready to fully commit to each other. Let yourself be inspired by your partner and inspire them. You both need each other as anchors more than ever.  You can still be independent and rely on each other emotionally. You’ve been through so much together. That’s how you know this is the real deal.


Dealing with Soul Connections

I know many of you are dealing with soul connections/Twin Flames and struggling right now. I know you are hurting deeply and feel lost and confused. It’s time to unburden yourself with the constant worry and anxiety. It’s time to release your fears of what should happen and could happen and what will happen. It’s time to let go and be free.

I want you to understand how energy works in these connections. When you are heartbroken, sad, choosing to walk your path in fear instead of love, the energy stagnates. Everything will feel stuck. You won’t feel like you’re moving ahead. You will stop manifesting. It will feel like you’re in a boat stuck in molasses, unable to sail through.

It is crucial that you develop a spiritual practice for yourself. You need to carve out time every day for meditation, writing thoughts of gratitude or even things you wish to manifest in a journal, and yoga (if this feels right to you.) You need to create a sacred space in your home where you can go, close your eyes, ground yourself, slowly and naturally breathe in and out, and just be in the now.

Give yourself 20 minutes a day to just be silent. You don’t have to think about your twin flame. You don’t have to think about anything. Just be. Surrender to the moment.

Allow yourself this quiet time. Light candles and/or burn incense. Listen to light music like Tibetan healing bowls or blissful harmonies with nature sounds. One of my personal favorites is “solfeggio tones.” This is calming music that heals and repairs the mind.

Retreat into this space, preferably in the morning, and block out everything from the outside world for these 20 minutes. This is your special ritual to connect to the Divine.  And it’s yours, so you can make it anything you would like.

If you want to pull tarot cards or oracle cards to meditate on, or use healing crystals, do that. If you wish to read an excerpt from a spiritual book, do that as well. Let your heart guide you.  This is the gift that you are giving yourself. You are treating yourself with peace and being gentle with your mind, body, and spirit.

Set an intention every time you engage in this ritual. For example, you could say “Today’s intention is to manifest abundance.” or “Today’s intention is to open my heart.”  You could also use these moments to repeat an affirmation several times such as “I love myself. And I am free from the chains that bind me to unhappiness.”

As you engage in this ritual every day, you will feel more balanced and grounded. You will start to feel at peace and less anxious. Life will feel easier. Dreams will become clearer. Your intuition will be sharper. The messages from Spirit will come to you. Ask your “Spirit Guides of Love, Light, and Wisdom” and angels to guide you on the right path and to give you signs of encouragement. Most importantly, ask them for healing. Trust that they will pull you in the direction you need to go to find the healing that is best for you. Healing is truly the key to all of this.

February Tarotscopes

By Monique

I pulled three tarot cards and asked Spirit “What is the energy for each sign in the month of February?” Then I wrote a story based on those cards. These messages are not meant to resonate with everybody. Three cards can create many narratives. This is just ONE. But if you are meant to receive the message in these tarotscopes, you will find it. That’s how Spirit works.

Read for your sun, moon, and rising. Then explore the different messages. If a message feels right, then it’s meant for you. If it doesn’t, then don’t pay attention to it.

If you would like your personal energy forecast for this month, book with me.

Hanged Man – Death – Prince of Swords

Capricorn, it’s time for you to surrender what is no longer working to the Universe. Push through the bullshit and persevere once and for all. We all knew this was coming,  and you did too. There are friendships that are fading out. They no longer feel right anymore, but there’s a good reason for this. Accept the ending. If you don’t want this person in your life anymore, cut the ties once and for all.  Stop thinking about it and just do it.

3 of Swords – 7 of Cups – The Universe

Aquarius, there was a painful loss you have been haunted by, and it’s clouding your judgment in the present. You’re unable to trust new partners because your heartbreak from the past is preventing you from opening your heart. You are blocked emotionally, and you know it’s time to take the risk and love again. Let the Universe guide you to the right people and trust that all is well. It’s safe to love. Stop fighting it.

The Wheel of Fortune – Ace of Cups – 8 of Wands

Pisces, you want it all, but you’re having a difficult time taking the risk. You want to jump off the cliff, but you keep asking “But how far down is it!” You’re not supposed to know everything. Accept that sometimes you have to take the chance without knowing the outcome. Your heart is open and you’re emotionally ready for new connections. Leave your fear behind and power through the resistance.  Focus on the now.  Stop worrying and start living.

Knight of Disks – Queen of Wands – Prince of Swords

Aries, get off your ass and start making something of yourself. Why are you wasting time when you know exactly what you want to do? It’s important that you start saving and investing if you have the funds available. The only way for you to become financially successful is believing in yourself and stepping into your power. Stop playing small and start seeing who you truly are. Get out of your head. The only money you can make in your head is imaginary. Take action now and get that bag you deserve. Be smart with your money.

5 of Swords – 2 of Swords – 10 of Wands

Taurus, you are burdened by fears, but you have to realize it’s all out of your control now. You are letting anxiety keeping you from moving forward. You are afraid you are going to make the wrong decision, so you’re frozen in place. This is no way to live life. Weigh the pros and cons, then pull the trigger. Let your gut instinct guide you. There is a lesson in this process. Go with the flow and trust that it will work out one way or the other.

Death – Knight of Swords – Princess of Wands

Gemini, let the past die. Let it go. Allow for new beginnings to take shape as this cycle ends. Slow down. You’re moving too fast, and you’re about to miss out on a key opportunity. You may be partying too much, which isn’t helping. If you are looking for employment, you need to detox. Clear your mind and focus. The right job for you will be in front of your eyes. You just need the vision to see it.  Keep your energy balanced. You may feel all over the place. Stay grounded thru yoga/meditation/exercise.

Prince of Wands – 10 of Cups – 5 of Cups

Cancer, you want lots of sexual heat. You are craving it. There is a lusty fire burning inside you. There should be some steamy sexual escapades happening regardless if you’re single or attached. Tell your lover how much you crave them. Show them how to please you. Don’t stop till you get enough. The only downside is your partner may not be able to keep up with you. You’re like a wolf in heat. Take the great sex when you can get it and as much as you can. Your enthusiasm in the bedroom will only amp up the energy with your lover.

8 of Cups – 9 of Swords – The Wheel of Fortune

Leo, it’s time for an emotional cleansing. You’ve been putting it off, and now it’s all bubbled to the surface. You’re waking up in the middle of the night in a panic because this stagnant energy needs to be released. Whatever happened last year left a serious imprint on you emotionally. What you thought was a great relationship turned out to be a dud. You have to leave that disappointment behind you, and see it as a blessing of protection. That person wasn’t right for you. There are new opportunities opening their doors to you as soon as you realize this and move past it.

The Moon – 9 of Wands – 2 of Wands

Virgo, you are dealing with a lot of subconscious feelings, and you may not even know why you are feeling the way you are. You’re up and down these days, switching back and forth like a pendulum. Allow yourself to feel these emotions, then let it go. Don’t resist them. Let yourself feel sad even if you don’t know why you’re feeling sad. You are healing childhood wounds. And this month is integral to that healing.  The best way to work through this energy is to muster as much inner strength you can and remind yourself that “This too shall pass.” On the other side of this healing is everything you want.

3 of Swords – 4 of Cups – Princess of Disks

Libra, if your love life feels stagnant right now, there is a good reason for it. You are experiencing a major heart healing. You’ve been breezing through relationship after relationship, hoping that your heart would heal through your partner. But it didn’t, because you are not with the right one. You have to do this healing on your own, so the right one will come to you. The Universe is telling you it’s time to focus on yourself. Use this time to connect with your emotional self and don’t fear what you find there. Envision the perfect relationship for you, and take into account of your needs, not just your wants.

5 of Wands – Ace of Disks – 3 of Disks

Scorpio, you are focused on WORK, achieving goals, and getting shit accomplished. You may be feeling some competition with others, but you need to worry about what you’re doing and not what the person next to you is. Don’t get lost in the sauce. This is the perfect time to start a new business or branch out into a new career.  Whatever you put energy into now will flourish within three years’ time. If you’ve been thinking about making moves in your career, the time is NOW.

9 of Cups – The Lovers – Princess of Wands

Sagittarius, if you want this relationship to work out, you need to make sure you and your partner are putting in an equal amount of effort. You can’t expect them to do all the emotional heavy lifting. If they say they want you, then believe it. Stop second guessing them. Make sure you’re meeting them halfway, and if you’re not feeling them like that, let them go. We know you have a line of potential suitors just waiting to date you. Choose the partner that makes you feel butterflies and heart emojis. Then give them your heart. They want all of you, all of the time, not just some of you, part of the time.

me, too

Written by Jasmine Jones

me, too.

let me start off by saying i’ve seen many beautiful courageous women and men talk about their experiences but i never wanted to share mine because i hate the feeling of pity.  i’ve felt it every time i tell a person one of my mother passed away for the last 14 years. i’ll often go along with the conversation when people ask about my parents, assuming both are still living, because i hate the look of embarrassment and pain people give me when i tell them i only have one.

i’ve only told this story to two people but i feel like this needs to be shared. because many women have been in my same position. and this may reach the right person that needs to see it.

hyperaggressive dawg. 30’s. abuser.

i still remember the feeling of shame, guilt, disgust and drunkenness as I drove home. as ive gotten older ive become more mature and aware of the dangers of drunk driving and how dangerous it was for me to drive in that state. but in that moment i knew i needed to get away. for my sanity. for my safety.

i still remember my weekend routine. get dressed up, meet up with friends, get numbers and delete them the next day. rarely would i respond to men the next day asking for dates and the opportunity to “get to know each other.” but this guy seemed pretty nice, pretty established. and my early 20’s self wanted to find a man who had his life together because i just knew i was ready to settle down (spoiler alert: im still not there yet).

i agreed to hang out with this guy and watch the game because my favorite team was playing. he took me to the liquor store and let me pick what i wanted, which i thought was pretty nice. we watched the game and took a few shots and i told him i was ready to leave because it was getting late. he all but forced me to stay and drink more in order to leave. as i look back i want to cry because i can still remember the sense of fear i felt. he was a pretty big guy and i am all of 5’3, 120 pounds on a good day.

i drank more until he felt satisfied. i still remember his clammy hands dragging me to his room. his nasty ass fat ass sweaty ass body all over me. i was distraught, disgusted, and unable to move. these are the things we weren’t taught about in school. my fight or flight was impaired. once he was satisfied i left. leaving the door unlocked i prayed someone put him out of his misery. so no other woman would feel the sickening feeling i felt.

i remember blaming myself for the situation. after all i was the one that willingly went to his place. i was the one that picked out the bottle. i was the one that drank. (its not like he put a gun to my head. right?) i blocked his number after several texts of him asking, begging me to come back over. i never was able to tell him how he made me feel.

a few years go by and a friend and i go to an event his group was having. i thought “surely he wont be here. he’s way too old, hell im too old, to be out here. but of course, i look up and see him. i try to explain it to my friend and let her know im uncomfortable and want to leave. she’s enjoying herself and asks why. i say, in the most silent voice possible, “the guy that raped me is here and im ready to go now.” she repeats what i say in an annoyed, loud tone and i suddenly feel that shame hurt and disgust. hearing someone else say it honestly makes you feel like shit.

growing up, i never thought i would be that person that had to deal with the feeling of seeing their attacker. i was always stunned and felt pain for the victim of movies or tv shows but i never knew i would be that person. but at 25, this was the second time i was faced with that same pain. the second time i felt like my campus, my safe space, was violated. the second time i reminded myself that i had to keep that same cheery smile and excited attitude while looking and watching to make sure the person that hurt me wasn’t nearby.

want to go back to that 18 year old, that 23 year old, and tell her that its okay. tell her to speak up. and tell her that she doesn’t have to blame herself. but to anyone reading this and feeling the same way i felt: its okay, speak up when you are comfortable, and never, ever blame yourself. and to quote a beautiful line from outkast “hold on, be strong.”

Yesterday She Cried

Written By Akemi

She let her tears run away with her imagination, picking up her old problems on their way to a final snot drenched resting place.

See, these tears that pour out fast, the ones you can’t blink back aren’t the kind you run away from. They’re the kind you look forward to after an extremely long day, or a long explanation that doesn’t take the sting away from the breaking feeling in your chest.

It’s relief. It’s the river you row that empties out at peace. You cry, you writhe, you heave, you sweat & spit… spill over your perfectly manicured edges… let yourself be… messy.

Then, once you’ve fallen apart at the seams & you’re in a puddle on the living room floor, something happens. You look around, up at the ceiling, down at yourself &… things don’t seem so bad.

Yesterday, she cried that cry. Today she’s back to conquering the world.

waves in my brain
crash against the edge
of my skull
a dimming lull


sometimes i recall
the way you say
my name
i think
about steamed breath
flooding my ears


lips graze
thinnest part of me
journey beneath
ear to collar
tiny mountains rise
soft residence
sensual simplicity
sends electricity


at the edge
of our ecstasy
our shadows wait
to greet us


i’m here to feel
your flesh
merge with mine
true awakening


i don’t know you yet
i feel your sweat
fill each of my pores
hot anticipation

–  soulmate(s)

i accept death.
decayed fingers grip my throat,
wrap tight and slow
like the boa constrictor.

i ache for rebirth.
stuck holding on
for some reason.
i’ve become one
with vines,
rusted wires.

i want to live
for you
at times
feels like breaking
bones that choke me.

love should be easy.
i don’t think it’s that
i don’t love you,
but that i do.

– let go

i am in love with the life on this earth,
i am in love with the dirt,
i am in love with all of the venus-in-aries flirts.

the more that i come home to myself,
the more i wallow in my worth,
even more love is then birthed.

bliss pours
through me
hot body parts
i feel it in my bones
building up

i find myself soaking and seeking
only that which lives
inside me

– sex magic will heal the earth

Our eyes meet

Are we thinking the same thing?

Written By Indigo Blackbird

I’m really not impressed by material or possessions like most of my peers. I mean of course we value them because they are tangible items that we have collectively given meaning to. But I feel that it’s truly hard to love me when you are worrying about getting me things, or what will please me when what I truly value is your existence in my life. Seeing you struggle or go out of your way to gift me things can sometimes take away from your long terms goals and I understand that. We can acquire all that we want together if we come to that decision but it is not a need.

I understand you want things for yourself just as I do and I want to encourage you to pursue them even if that means I am not a part of the picture. Your best interest is my own and if you can’t take care of yourself I would not expect you to take care of me even if I know you would try your best. My love is far too unconditional. Relax…there’s no pressure just as long as we can openly communicate our boundaries we can still treat one another. Every once in a while a thoughtful gesture is practical but when you feel that someone is obligated to ‘give’ then your love becomes selfish instead of selfless.

Relationships are an endless flow or surrender/victory (compromise). Sometimes we forget that having a partner is about operating interdependently and it leads to misunderstandings, hurt feelings and rejection. If we can learn to experience each other as we are without fearing that we will fail to meet each others expectations, we can truly experience profound growth. Plus once you have accomplished your own missions/goals you have better means to contribute to your partner’s life in the way they truly deserve, as opposed to you taking them out every weekend but this is just me venting and reflecting on my own thoughts.

I’d rather just question our existences and stroll in the park, spill out our secret passions, go swimming, hiking, dancing, embrace you while you tell me the things you never wanted to admit, support you and your craft, etc. Just enjoy other. Be free together so that you can create the foundation for better health and wealth. But even if you fail, use that momentum to launch yourself into success. It is okay to fail. We all do. We all learned how to read, this post for example, but we had to practice… So keep practicing.

Putting in effort doesn’t stop because you have a title, that is where love becomes caged. Allow your emotions to guide you and don’t suppress them. Honor your feelings while being conscious of the world around you. The riches will come, so just keep dreaming and inspiring one another but most of all–yourself.

La Petite Mort

Written By Jasmine Jones

Sheek. 34. Scammer Paterfamilias.

I met him while I was sitting in front of the infamous “Booty Wall” at the Quad. I was a 19-year-old freshman at Howard University and I wanted to see what all the hype was about. He pulled up in his ’97 Honda Accord thinking he was the shit. And I won’t lie, I thought the same.

He’d come pick me up every now and then and we’d ride around Maryland while he told me about his epic battles in his hometown New York. My Tennessean southern belle ass ate it all up too. Our nights would usually end with him passing out after about an hour of begging to “just put the tip in.” At this time I was a proud virgin, holding out for only the right one to come around.

I will never forget about the morning I literally saw Heaven’s Gates open. I was laying in his bed, which was in his mother’s basement. And I heard his mother call his name. I never met her but I could imagine she resembled Biggs’ aunt from Shottas because of the way she called his name. It was like that of a woman who spent too much of her life raising bad ass children with no father figure present just to see them become what their father was.

I literally felt the annoyance in her voice when she called his name. I laid there like “fuck. This woman gon’ come in here and beat my ass and his” but luckily he ran to greet her with a “Mommy I’m here.” I breathed a sigh of relief and rolled over, and I realized, this nigga had Power Rangers sheets. I knew then that I had gotten into some deep shit I didn’t want to be a part of. So I tried to pretend I was in a deep sleep when he came back. He knew I was faking and woke me up to kisses and fingers.

Now usually I would push him away but for some reason I felt that shit and was like “Fuck it, what do I have to lose?” I curled back and felt him inch in closer and closer. And the feeling that I usually felt would usually make me run to the bathroom because I swear I thought I was about to piss myself. But he kept going and I opened my eyes and looked up and saw a light shine through that basement ceiling. I let out my best “Breathe Again” Toni Braxton moans and let my body follow the light. My first orgasm, wrapped up in Power Rangers sheets, and holding a grown ass man who refused to grow up. It wasn’t the most romantic moment, but to quote a line from a beautiful Andre 3000 interlude “Fuck it. I liked that shit.”

Let’s Dance!

Have you ever tangoed before? It’s such a beautiful dance. You’re either the lead or you’re following. I love following because I like to get spun around, and throw my hands in the air. It’s such a romantic feeling. You can get carried away in letting yourself feel free. The exact opposite of what it feels like to be in a relationship to many people, myself included.

I’m naturally very private. I don’t like to open up, you have to pry information out of me. Once I’m very, VERY comfortable with you, I’ll let you in. Some people are open and will tell you their life story within 5 minutes of meeting you. I always find an escape route immediately when I meet a “sharer.”

I’m also an empath, meaning I feel things very deeply. Including energy that other people give off. Sometimes it’s hard to differentiate my own energy from the energy I’m attracting. I end up feeling drained and frustrated. I’ve learned over the years how to balance this by working on my chakras.

If you’re not familiar with your chakras, chile, wyd? From the 3rd eye up, I’m goodt! Those lower chakras get me every time. I always start with the root, because that’s my biggest struggle. Then I work my way up to the throat, and eventually to the crown. The chakra I’m most focused on now is the sacral, which focuses on creativity, sexuality/sensuality, and feelings. I’ve learned that empaths feel through their “gut,” hence the term gut feeling.

I’ve been taking belly dancing classes to get in touch with my sacral chakra. I would recommend anyone wanting to get in touch with their femininity to take belly dancing classes, especially women who’ve recently given birth, and trans women. I’ve learned to let down my guard with myself, which is honestly what’s most important. I allow myself to feel. I look at myself in the mirror while I’m dancing and I smile, usually thinking, damn I look goodt!

Myths and the Truths of the Twin Flame Reunion

Written  By Monique Colette

Twin Flame Reunion

A twin flame is best described as a spiritual connection between two souls. Each twin has their own set of lessons and karma they must face. A twin flame reunion is Divinely orchestrated. This sacred meeting cannot be forced or manifested. It happens when it happens, and it may not happen in this lifetime. You will meet your twin flame when it is the right time for you both. A spiritual relationship can be challenging and may bring up wounds in each partner. There is nothing light and fluffy about these connections. However, each Divine connection is unique. It depends on the energy, lessons, and karma for each twin.


  1. Not all twins meet and stay together:  This may not be the lifetime where they have a long-term relationship. They may have other soul contracts and karmic relationships that take priority of being together romantically.
  2. Not all twins separate then reunite:  Many times they separate because the energies don’t mesh, and they don’t come back together again in this lifetime.  It happens. Regardless of what you’ve read on other websites, it’s not the end of the world. Each can have rewarding relationships with soulmates and live joyous and fulfilling lives apart.
  3. Not all twin flame relationships are romantic: Some twins are more like family members and friends than lovers and partners. Some come together as business partners. Every twin flame connection is unique.
  4. If you don’t choose to be with your twin, you will be punished by the Universe or meant to suffer: No, that’s not how it works. If you or your twin choose not to be with the other, you will not be punished or forced to be alone for the rest of your lives. You each have the freedom to choose a romantic relationship. It may be too intense or painful for either of you. If it is, you have to do what’s best for you and your path. A twin flame relationship can be agonizing since it brings up so many subconscious wounds to the surface.
  5. If your twin doesn’t want to be with you, you will never be happy or in another relationship:  Hell to the no. Once you are open to it and ready, you will meet other soul connections/loving partners who will open up new worlds of love and appreciation. You will never forget your twin, but you will not pine for them or miss them romantically because you will be so fulfilled with self-love and the love of your partner. I have worked with many clients who thought they would never meet another partner after meeting their twin and they are now happily in love, living their best lives with their significant others. The fairy tale does not end after a twin flame relationship fails to launch.


  1. The twin flame connection is all about energy: If the energy of you two combined is balanced, the relationship will run smoothly. Everything will flow. There will be zero to few separations, and they will only be short-term. If the energy of the connection is unbalanced, one person’s energy is heavy (not grounded) and the other person’s is light (grounded), they will separate until the energy balances again.
  2. Reunion after separation is possible: Focus on your healing, opening your heart, balancing your chakras, grounding yourself, pouring love into yourself. Express gratitude with what you already have to attract more blessings into your life. Stop worrying what they’re doing. Be a little selfish. Pamper yourself. Stop stalking their social media. Stop reading about twin flames. Stop posting on twin flame message boards. Stop trying to figure it all out because you’ll drive yourself insane. Shut off your computer/phone. Take a walk. Smell the flowers. Hang out with your loved ones. DO YOU. Happiness and inner balance creates opportunity for reunion. BE HAPPY. When you are happy, you are vibrating in the energy of joy and love. That’s when amazing things happen. Stop waiting for reunion. Start living again.
  3. Very few people in your life are going to have any idea what you’re going through: Don’t try to explain your connection or try to convince them. It’s only going to cause you heartache and frustration. You don’t need anybody’s opinion on your relationship or the feelings you have for this person. Your family and friends are going to think you’re delusional when you tell them you’ve seen X’s name 20 times that day. Find a spiritual mentor to guide you, somebody you feel comfortable discussing personal things.
  4. This experience may make you feel like you’re going crazy: BALANCE YOUR ENERGY. Meditate, exercise, practice yoga, and create a daily spiritual ritual/practice for yourself so you can connect to Spirit. The more connected to the Divine you are, the more balanced and at peace you will feel. Spend time in nature. The earth connects and grounds us. If you are feeling anxious or out of sorts, place your hands on a tree, close your eyes and tune in. Feel that strong, steady energy of the tree rooting you to the ground. Take walks, hike, visit the ocean and dip your toes in the sand, or plant some flowers around your house. Keep yourself as balanced as possible because the energy of the connection can throw you off balance quickly.
  5. The only way through is forward:  Even when you are feeling your worst, you have to keep going. Power through. Do not think about the past. Keep moving on. The past has no hold on you. Let it go. Stay in the present. If you are separated from your twin flame, do not dwell on the separation or whatever led you to break up in the first place. Pick yourself up and tell yourself that life is going to get better. Work with the Law of Attraction to manifest the life you want. Visualize balance and healing. Envision a life of love and abundance. As the Great Gatsby says “My life has got to be like this. It’s got to keep going up.” And it will, if you allow it. You can manifest the life you desire. If you dwell on despair and disappointment, that is what the Universe will give you. If you focus your attention on what is going well in your life and all the blessings, you will attract more. Push forward, release the past, and imagine your perfect life. Write down everything you want in a journal. Be clear. Be specific. Then step back and allow the Universe to create this for you in the way that it needs to, not necessarily in the way you imagined. Let it do all the work.

Tarot Reflections: Divine Love Relationship Advice


The Fool tells us to trust in the Universe’s plan. We must leap into our lives full force without fear or doubt. We might fail. But we will always be able to pick ourselves back up and try again. The Universe will always have our back. It will always save us. We have to LIVE and have fun and connect to our inner children and PLAY again. We cannot allow these connections to drag us down and keep us from living in a state of joy, as we are meant to. It’s all about new beginnings and giving into the energy of the connection. It’s time to leave our worries behind and let the Divine guide us. Spirit is there to help. We just need to let go first. As soon as we get out of its way, amazing things are possible.

The Universe brings the message that there are sacred karmic cycles that are taking place. We must accept them and do our best not to fight against them. They are set in place, turning like the gears of a clock, balancing everything in perfect timing. What may seem like a quiet period of our lives, behind the scenes, there could be many pieces of the puzzle configuring and finding their way to fit, interlocking with each other. Trust in the cycles. They serve a higher purpose. We may not understand them, but like the seasons that are constantly changing, they sweep away the old and bring in the new. Let the old leaves fall away so the new flowers have room to blossom.

The 2 of Disks is a reminder that these unions are rooted in balance. In this card, the snake creates two orbs, whole circles with its tail. This represents the infinity symbol. The more balanced and whole we are, the more we are at peace. We must remember that our Divine partner does not complete us. We are very much whole with or without them. Our energy is power. It can attract or repel depending on the equilibrium. Obsessive energy is connected to fear and unworthiness. When we obsess over somebody or something, it eludes us. We can never quite grasp it, and the more we chase it, the further away it becomes. Inner balance is the key to a healthy state of mind. In a Divine Union since we are connected by etheric cords, we are constantly exchanging energy with our partners. We must be mindful of the energy we are sending them. Sending them loving, joyful energy is much better than sending them pushy, obsessive, unhappy energy. When we are happy and balanced, they feel it too.


Tarot Reflections: Lust – Ace of Cups – Knight of Disks


Lust represents what we desire, our passions that run deep, our secrets, the things that make our our bodies and hearts light up with fire because we want them so badly. It is a soul yearning for something bigger than us. It is time to ask ourselves what we truly want and stop feeling ashamed of that desire. There is nothing wrong with giving into our soul’s desires. And yes, we deserve it. We are worthy of these things. Allow this want to be heard by the Universe. Speak it loudly.

The Ace of Cups is about emotional openness, a fresh energy, accepting new into our lives, and not being afraid of our emotional depths. It’s okay to allow people into our hearts. It’s a wonderful thing to be able accept love without fear. We are present and willing, open to the possibilities of new connections. Everything is better because we have let go of the past and the emotional weight that we had been carrying for so long. There is nothing holding us back anymore.

The Knight of Disks tells us that we are strong and balanced. We are ready to manifest amazing things because we are ready for them. From the fire of Lust and the water of the Ace of Cups, now here we are with the earth beneath our feet, to ground us. Everything is secure and safe. This is where we can build our empires, homes, and businesses, from this place of stability within us. The Knight never had to rush to get there. He took his time to reach his destination. He is now observing how far he’s come in his journey, feeling gratitude for everything he has accomplished.

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Your Karma

Written By Tresmoongoddess

Everyone has heard of Karma before. This natural law has expanded beyond the beliefs of Buddhism and Hinduism into Western culture. But, do our beliefs about what Karma is, actually align with the law that is practiced by its religion of origin? In this post I will discuss the misconceptions about Karma as well as the definition of what Karma is based on the Buddhists and Hindus.

So, let’s talk about what Karma is NOT!

Many people believe that Karma is some sort of retribution, an “eye for an eye” type of deal. You do something bad and in return something bad happens to you. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve heard, “She will get what’s coming to her!” or, “I’ll let Karma deal with it.” from people seemingly taking the high road in a situation when they have been wronged by someone. While Karma IS the result of someone’s actions, it doesn’t quite work that way.

Well Goddess, what IS Karma then?

I am glad that you asked! The word Karma is a Sanskrit word that roughly translates to the English word action, and is used by Eastern religions including Buddhism and Hinduism. The overall premise of Karma is one of cause and effect. Every action that you do will have an effect on your life in the future. So, yes, Karma is something that happens to you, but the most important part of Karma is not the action, but the WHY behind the action.

The WHY is often the part Western culture leaves off when thinking about Karma. But, the WHY is what causes Karma to happen in the first place. The WHY causes the effect in the cause and effect of Karma. Karma doesn’t just look at a person’s actions. It looks at the person’s intentions.

Let’s say someone robs a store. They aren’t going to be robbed in the future just because they did this crime. Karma looks at the reason that they robbed the store. Were they trying to feed their family and didn’t have the financial means, or, were they just doing it for some type of gang initiation? The person who did it trying to feed their family may actually have good Karma come to them because their intentions were good, whereas the person who did it for gang initiation may have bad Karma come to them because their intentions were bad.

The WHY in the law of Karma is why people who are seemingly horrible people and do really fucked up things never have bad things happen to them. It is also why people who are seemingly really good people may always be down on their luck. So, while Karma IS an action, it is NOT about someone’s actions, but rather their intentions.

Now that we know what Karma is, let’s talk about HOW Karma works.

Karma is not something instantaneous. A person’s Karma can take hours, days, months, years, or even lifetimes to occur. It really just depends on how out of balance a person is. The ultimate goal of Karma is to seek, restore, and maintain balance. This idea of balance is why a lot of Western culture believes that Karma is about “an eye for an eye”. But, that’s not how Karma maintains balance.

Think about Karma as a bank. People can accrue good debt such as a home that appreciates in value that can pay out later in life as it appreciates, or they can accrue bad debt such as credit card interest, and bank fees from over-drafting their accounts. The Karma bank either pays out the appreciation or collects the interest and fees. Some fees hit quick such as an overdraft fee and others may occur over a time period such as paying interests on a car loan. How big the fee is and how hard it is felt depends on how much money (good Karma) a person has saved in their account. Karma is constantly looking at the account of a person’s intentions to make sure that their account is balanced, and it pays out and collects as necessary.

I hope that this helps you to better understand what Karma is and how it works!

Who We Once Were: Past Lives Stories


Think of past lives like this: What if you had a dream that affected you so deeply that you carried its energy everywhere? What if you didn’t understand the dream or barely remembered it, yet there were secrets and lessons that lingered in your subconscious. Past lives are like dreams in that sense. In our past lives, we may have played different “roles.” We may have committed heinous acts. We may have loved deeply and lost in the most heartbreaking of ways. We may have killed our lovers, or they killed us. We may have been tortured and killed in the name of religion or war. These are the wounds we carry with us every day, whether we realize it or not. Our soul memories never go away.

As we delve into our past lives through meditation, dream work, shamanic journeying, or even past life regressions, we will discover energetic patterns and karmic lessons. Karma is not a punishment; it is not good or bad, it just is. It is a re-balancing system. In a past life, if a woman abandons her son, in the next lifetime, she will encounter him again, only in a romantic relationship. To balance the karma, he will abandon her. When this occurs, the karma is balanced, and the two people can go their separate ways. The entire purpose of their pairing was to balance the karma.

Past Life Experiences

In a past life, a beautiful woman was constantly harassed by men in the village. She was forced to marry a man who was a brute. She resented him, and feels trapped by this marriage. She blamed her looks and her body for catching his attention in the first place. She lived a miserable life where she felt imprisoned. Now skip to this lifetime: she is very heavy. She doesn’t understand why she’s so addicted to food. She is ashamed of her body and lack of willpower. She goes in for a past life regression, and discovers that she has carried the shame of being beautiful into this lifetime.

Beauty, to her, equates being trapped in a marriage by a horrible man. So she eats and gains weight to hide her looks. In her past life, she felt her beauty had been a curse. Subconsciously this past life affected her deeply. She was born with subconscious programming that her looks would only create problems for her. Once she discovers this through her past life regression, she is able to heal and break this pattern of overeating. She makes peace with this past life and moves forward. Past life regression therapy was the key to healing.

Balancing Karma

In another scenario, a man wonders why he fights with his wife so much. They can never seem to get along, and they have blow-up fights. Together, they’re like fire and gasoline. They’re on the brink of divorce when they decide to go for a past life regression. It is revealed to them that they have had many lifetimes together, and they have killed each other in quite a few of them. This is a wake-up call for them. They both understand what’s been causing so much unnecessary stress on the relationship, and they commit to each other and the relationship, agreeing that they will push through these uncomfortable feelings to find the love that’s been waiting for them for years.

Every lifetime holds a message, a lesson, and an opportunity for our souls to grow and evolve. Not all our problems are rooted in this lifetimes, and as humans we have to learn to accept our flaws and broken pieces. We must open ourselves up for healing and trust that Spirit will help us heal when we ask for it. Our soul wounds do not have to hinder us from having a life filled with love, joy, and peace. We can push through the discomfort these wounds may have triggered to find the waters of Divine healing waiting for us when we are ready to fully immerse ourselves in it.

How to Cleanse Your Spiritual Energy of Negative Entities


Written By Tresmoongoddess

About a month ago I received a message from the Spirit about spiritual attacks and protection. That on that evening there were to be no open glasses of water left at my bedside because they are open portals to allow entities into your home and into your dreams. I followed the guidance given to me and not only poured out my glass of water that I normally keep on my nightstand, but I informed my followers that they should do the same. That was the first warning that I had received that there is some sort of spiritual warfare going on in other dimensions.

Recently however, friends, clients, and family members have said that they have been the recipient of some type of spiritual attack.  This set off red flags to me that indicated that the message I had received a month ago was not an isolated incident, and that the spiritually vulnerable (empaths, mystics, mediums, etc) need to arm themselves with tools to combat these attacks.

What are spiritual attacks?

Spiritual attacks can be several different things. It’s not just being possessed by someone else’s spirit or a demon, which is often portrayed in movies. Yes, possession can be a form of spiritual attack. Especially if you did not invite or welcome that spirit or entity into your body. But there are several other types of ways that one can be spiritually attacked.

Here are the top 5 ways that someone can be attacked spiritually Please note that this is not a definitive list.

Energy Vampires

An energy vampire is a person or entity that drains you of your energy. Simply being around them causes you to feel sluggish, tired, or agitated. They are constantly asking you to give of yourself, but they aren’t reciprocating. This is more than just an annoying family member or friend who is constantly asking for things and getting on your nerves. This is an actual drainage of your life force.

Energy vampires are often parasitic, low vibrational beings. They do not have energy strong enough to carry out their intentions, so they go around taking energy from others who are usually higher vibrational beings. Most energy vampires get addicted to the high of higher vibrating energy, and they become serial vampires, always feeding off of the energy of other beings.

Astral Projecting

Most members of the spiritual community would not consider astral projecting a form of spiritual attack. In fact, a lot of people within the community see it as a gift to be able to do so. After all, not everyone can mentally and spiritually leave their physical body and journey to other places and dimensions. But, astral projecting can be a form of spiritual attack when your spirit is being pulled from your physical body uncontrollably or against your will. It can also be a spiritual attack if you are sexually assaulted or raped while in the astral realm.

Hexes/Root Work/Curses


The easiest way to be attacked spiritually is to be on the receiving end of a hex. I am a firm believer that hexes are necessary in some instances. Especially if they are used to restore a balance of power or are used for the greater good of humanity. But, if you find that you are consistently on the receiving end of a hex then you may be under spiritual attack. The entity that is hexing you may be attempting to weaken you, distract you, or strip you of your powers.

The stripping or binding of powers is considered a hex, and as with any other type of hex it is sometimes necessary. But, when this happens to a light worker, healer, or an entity using their powers for the greater good, then it is a form of spiritual attack. The binding and stripping of powers cannot be done by a single entity. It usually requires a sizeable number of entities working together for it to be done successfully.



Everyone has seen a horror film where some poor unsuspecting person has been possessed by a demon. Yes, this can happen in real life, but this is not usually the case among members of the spiritual community. We are usually too powerful to be susceptible to low level demons who are in search of a host. But, as we open ourselves up to receive messages from other entities such as guides, ancestors, and gods/goddesses, we open ourselves up to be possessed by negative entities as well. When this happens, then this is a form of spiritual attack.

Attacks during Dreaming/Daydreaming


Almost everyone is capable of dreaming and/or daydreaming. This is your mind’s way of revealing to you things that are in your subconscious. Dreaming is good. Even nightmares are good because they reveal to you areas that you need to work on. But, in your dream state is when you are most vulnerable to be attacked as your conscious is unable to protect you. Your subconscious will try several things to defend itself during a spiritual attack, but ultimately the only way to end it is to wake up.

Spiritual attacks during your dream state can be the inability to wake yourself up from a dream. It can also feel like your mind has been hijacked and you are no longer in control. You may dream about battling a negative entity because your subconscious really did go to battle in your sleep. You may also wake up and feel tired or drained because you have been siphoned of your energy in your sleep.

How do I protect myself from spiritual attacks?

There are several different methods of protection that can be used to keep your spirit safe from spiritual warfare. The ones listed here are common generic protections. If none of these work for you, we can book an energy work session to get into more specific practices for you needs.

Spiritual Cleanses


You’ve experienced your first spiritual attack. Now what? The first thing that I would recommend that you do is cleanse your spirit and your aura. Remove any negative energy that is around you. Several tools can be used to achieve this.

White sage smudge sticks are a favorite go-to for removing negative energy. Another go-to is the use of Holy and/or Florida Water to cleanse negative energy. Both of these are used by spiritualists and non-spiritualists alike

Spiritual baths are another great way to do a spiritual cleanse. Adding epsom or pink himalayan sea salt to your bath along with sage, rosemary, chamomile frankincense, rosewood, and/or hibiscus to your water is a great spiritual cleanse that is grounding as well. To add an extra kick to this bath you can add crystals to your bath water. I will get into crystal usage later in this post. Make sure that you’re using tumbled stones only that are water safe!

Sit in the tub for at least 20 minutes, or until you feel the negative energy has been removed. Then bathe in castile soap, rinse off, and allow ALL of the water to go down the drain before exiting the tub. During the draining process order all negative entities down the drain. When you get out of the tub do not dry off as the salts are still working. Allow yourself to air dry and rest for at least 10 minutes.

If you do not have a bathtub or you don’t have time to sit in a tub of water then I highly recommend using Dr. Teal’s Detoxify and Energize Epsom Salt Body Wash in the shower. It has ginger and bentonite clay in addition to the epsom salt. Wash your body from head to toe. You can use your normal face routine but this is the only exemption. Don’t forget to wash your back. Don’t leave any part of your body unwashed. Also shampoo your hair.

For at least the first week after your spiritual attack you should bathe in castile soap or the epsom salt body wash. Just to make sure that you remove any residual energy. I would also recommend taking a spiritual bath at least twice a month during the New and Full moons. I know some people take them at every moon phase just as a preemptive measure.



Meditation is a time honored practice. It is used for everything from self-awareness to anxiety prevention. But, meditation is a key tool in preventing spiritual attacks. In meditation you can construct an impenetrable bubble of light energy around your aura. This keeps negative energy from being able to reach you.

In this meditation you’re going to sit in Lotus position, close your eyes, and steady your breath. You want to take slow deep breaths. While you are breathing, ground yourself by becoming aware of the feeling of your body on the floor and work your way up to the crown of your head. Once you reach your crown you want to open up your crown chakra and send out a bright white light. Allow this light to cascade all over you slowly surrounding your body and coming together under your bottom. Imagine that this light barrier does not allow energy in, but allows energy out.

This meditation may take some practice before you can form a complete bubble around you. As you get more proficient at it you will no longer need to sit in lotus position. You will be able to create this energy barrier in an instant’s notice, and you’ll even be able to project this barrier to create one around your loved ones.

Candle Magic


I am a big proponent of candle magic. Its one of  my favorite practices. Candles are very powerful magical tools, and can be used in both white and dark magic. For the sake of this post I’m only going to talk about white magic and using candles for protection.

The most important part of candle magic is knowing what color represents which property. For spiritual protection white, green, red, and black candles are recommended.

White candles are used to keep positive energy around you. White is the color of purity so you know that energy that comes with it is pure and innocent.

Green candles are used for grounding. Green is the representative of the element of Earth. If you’re being attacked in the astral realm, or you’re uncontrollably astrally projecting lighting a green candle will help you to stay grounded.

Red candles are used for protection. Red is the color of the element of fire. Fire is used like a shield to keep energy from being able to reach you.

Black candles are used for riding a space of negative energy. I know a lot of lightworkers who do not like to use black candles because of their association with dark magic. But, in this instance black candles are very useful. They absorb the negative energy in a space.

When using candles for protection be sure to cleanse, consecrate, and charge your candles with your intentions.

Crystal Magic

Crystals are great magical tools that can be used for cleansing, grounding, and protecting. The most important thing to note is that not all crystals agree with everyone’s energy. Some crystal’s energy is too strong for a person’s aura, others aren’t strong enough because the person has very strong energy.

If you are well versed in crystal magic it is recommended that you pick your crystals in person. Holding crystals in your hand will give you an idea of how your energy interacts with the crystal.

Crystals can be used alone or in conjunction with candles and oils, or in spiritual baths to enhance the strength of herbs and oils.

Crystals for Protection

  • Amethyst– a stone of protection and can be worn to prevent psychic attacks and to protect the wearer from all types of harm.
  • Obsidian– one of the strongest protection stones and can shield from psychic attack. It is also said to be a shield from emotional and physical attack. It will seek to purify negative energy in its vicinity, also within the aura.
  • Black Onyx-blocks negative energies from getting in.
  • Selenite-used to dispel negativity, making it a good stone for protection. This energy combined with its angel associations makes it outstanding for angelic protection.
  • Pyrite-a very protective stone, shielding a person from negative energy of all kinds. Pyrite blocks energy leaks and mends auric tears.
  • Peridot–  a shield against others who drains your energy. Great to wear around any known energy vampires who leave you significantly drained after interacting with them.
  • Fire Agate-offers a strong shield of protection and is excellent for dispelling fear. This stone that transmutes energy.
  • Yellow Jasper-a protective stone that guards against negativity.
  • Lapiz Lazuli– guards against negative psychic energy.

Crystals for Cleansing

  • Bloodstone purifies a person and their surroundings. Helps to banish negativity. An excellent grounding and protecting stone, helping to keep out undesirable influences.
  • Clear Crystal Quartz-a protective stone that also enhances a person’s aura significantly.
  • Black Tourmaline-one of the most powerful protectors against negative energy from others in both the Earth and Astral plane. It is a good crystal to keep next to your bed at night. It reflects negative energy back to the sender.
  • Garnet cleans and energizes all the chakras. It revitalizes, purifies and balances energy. This stone fortifies, activates and strengthens the survival instinct.
  • Jade-integrates the mind with the body. It provides purity and serenity and increases love and nurturing, while protecting.

Crystals for Grounding

  • Carnelian-grounds and anchors a person in the present reality, while stabilizing them.
  • Ruby-releases blocked energy, cleans and clears blocked chakras and offer protection against psychic attack and vampirism.
  • Smokey Quartz-protects a person from negativity and transmute the energy by grounding it back down into the earth.
  • Hematite-invokes emotional grounding and balances opposing energies, as it strengthens a person’s connection with the Earth. It dissolves negativity and has powerful balancing qualities as it harmonizes mind, body and spirit.
  • Citrine-dissipates negative energies and promotes inner calm. It cleanses the aura and aligns the spiritual body with the physical, making citrine wonderful crystals for grounding

Be sure to cleanse and charge your new crystals before using then. Also, crystals will lose their power as they absorb and release energy, so it is helpful to cleanse and charge them regularly. I recommend every full moon.

Sugars and salts also fall under the category of crystals. Epsom salt, sea salt, and pink Himalayan salt can be used in baths to help with cleansing. Also, using regular table salt can be used as a form of protection. Lining doorways and windows with salt can keep negative entities away. Also if you sleep with water at your bedside placing it in a ring of salt will keep entities from using the water as a portal into your space.

Herbs and Oil Magic

As a kitchen witch this might be my favorite type of magic. I love mixing herb to create oils and potions, adding herbs to everyday food dishes, and using herbs to make teas, baths, and steams. Herbs that have magical properties, like crystals, that can be used to cleanse, protect, and ground.

Also, essential oils of of an herb have the same properties as the herbs themselves. This is why I have included oils in this section. Please note that essential oils are super concentrated and should be used very sparingly. 20-30 drops total in a bath is plenty enough. Five drops can be used to enhance candle magic. DO NOT USE ESSENTIAL OILS DIRECTLY ON YOUR SKIN WITHOUT A CARRIER OIL!

Herbs for Protection

  • Rosemary-is useful in warding off psychic attacks that just keep coming and coming.

  • Linden (may be called Lime Tree)-Tree spirits also tend to create fortresses around your aura, a shield of bark to protect the valuable inner contents. Linden is in this class of guardians and offers protection from the root chakra all the way to the crown.

  • Calendula protect from more incoming attacks. It helps the body to recognize the energetic signature of the attacker and prepare for any future attacks.

  • Chamomile-turns you into ghost mode. Attacks flow right through and past you.

  • Rose preps the heart to protecting itself. Rose tangles a thicket of thorny vines around the heart like the thorns on its stem.This allows the heart to emit carefree and loving energy without fear.

  • Dragon’s Blood– is useful in protection, energy, and purification. It can be used to enhance a protection spell.

Herbs for Cleansing

  • Sage–  used to remove all outside energy. It can be used a a smudge to remove unwanted energy from a person or an object. It can also be ingested as a tea to cleanse a person’s spirit.
  • Lemongrassan essential ingredient for cleansing herb blends and bath mixes as well as communication blends.
  • Cedaracts as a purifier, cleansing the area in which it is burned.
  • Lavender– clears away negative and stagnant energy.
  • Peppermint– aids salts in baths in removing unwanted energy.
  • Burdock– removes and blocks negative energy and thoughts.
  • Frankincense-removes negative energy from a space. Can also be used in spiritual baths to cleanse the aura of negative energy.
  • Myrrh- used for purification, protection, and healing.

Herbs for Grounding

  • Palo Santo– clears the mind and is used to keep energies grounded and clear.
  • Clove– used to raise spiritual vibrations, purify an area, protect, and  banish hostile/negative entities.
  • Dandelion-the root is used in sleep protection, and calling on spiritual assistance. While the leaf is used for healing, purification, and protection.
  • Hibiscus– promotes peace and tranquility as well as raises spiritual vibrations.

These herbs can be used alone or in combination with each other. I would not recommend using more than 5 herbs at a time or more than 2 herbs from a single category as they will start to cancel each other’s energy out. Herbs can be used to make teas, steams, or in spiritual baths. They can also be used to make oils that can be used in conjunction with candles and crystals.

While this post is not comprehensive, I hope that I have provided you with some helpful information if you have found yourself under spiritual attack.

Love and Light,
