How to clear and deal with negative energy.

f781e3afe72ef64457a2a97c50b165ce

It’s important to remember for those of us that are sensitive or feel a lot of empathy for others to take time to clear your aura, especially if your developing your psychic abilities or working as a psychic, everyone of us has an aura it’s an energy field that surrounds us made up of many layers, it can extend up to 3 ft around us depending on your vibrational frequency.  Sometimes it can become out of balance or we pick up negative energy from the environment around us or people that we read for or come in contact with.

Cleansing your aura is a form of personal healing and spiritual and emotional well being, our aura continuously processes positive and negative information throughout the day about our experiences, by doing meditation, exercise, having a good diet, drinking only moderate alcohol and not smoking are the best ways to look after yourself, being a psychic or reader needs to be a lifestyle choice if you don’t look after yourself you can burn out, become ill or depressed.

I know that sometimes I can go out happy and in a good mood and by the time I get back I can feel heavy headed or negative emotions like anger or sadness sometime I can pick these up from the gym,  this type of environment it does attract people for many different reasons and some of the people there are depressed or have issues they are trying to work through and by going to the gym helps it them feel better which is great, but if you’re an empath like me you can end taking on that energy.  It can also happen in shopping centres, pubs, supermarkets anywhere that a lot of people tend to congregate going about their daily life.

One thing I have noticed over the years and something you should consider when picking a psychic or a reader is that an inexperienced reader or someone just starting out  and often it’s the ones that tend to offer free or cheap readings, (and of course many people will jump at the chance of a freebie!) Just be aware that this person may have taken on a lot of negative energy and not cleared themselves, if you think about it happy people don’t tend to have readings they only come to us when they have a problem and you can end up taking on all that negativity if you are really sensitive.

I have often had to clear after just receiving a message or email from someone let alone a reading, it can be in any form of contact I can pick up on the energy of the person right away, and if they are a sensitive or psychic I know when they don’t clear regularly and I have to then clear myself. Having had a un pleasant experience myself recently after being in contact with a psychic reader (I don’t feel that I should go into details as it may scare some of you) I’m told by my guides that this person wasn’t aware of this negative energy and that it had attach itself to them, although I’m guessing they probably would have eventually wondered why they were feeling off colour. So if you’re of a sensitive nature and you pick a reader because they seem cheap or they offer freebies and you could end feeling worse than you did before the reading.

Firstly trust your instincts and do your home work, check out the reader see how long they have been doing it and don’t fall for the old crap, I have been doing it for years! if they have been doing it for years they don’t offer free readings to everyone, go by recommendation and check out their website they should have a photograph of themselves on their clearly stating who they are, what training they have had  with lots of positive feedback.

Readers do have to start somewhere, if they are practicing or in training they should be honest and open about it. Ask yourself do you feel a connection to this person and do you feel they would give you good advice or are you just after a freebie.

Professional readers work with people day in and day out they know they have to clear and look after themselves in order to connect and give a positive experience.

If you are unfortunate to come into contact with or know that you are going to see someone that’s negative or always complaining then ask for extra protection from your guides, put the white light around you and ground yourself try to limit your time with them and only see them when you feel strong enough to cope with it, maybe ask yourself what value do they have in your life do they just want someone to unload on so they feel better and you end feeling bad. Family is different you may have to see them often or even live with them, then sage your house regularly and place crystals around the room or areas that they sleep or sit. Open the windows let in the fresh air let it blow through to clear the energy.

Here are some ideas you can try if you want to clear negative energy from your home or workplace.

1. Sea salt is commonly used in Feng Shui to get rid of negative energy and to allow a balanced chi to flow inside the home. The sea salt is either used alone or mixed with water and placed in certain areas of the home. Mix 5 – 6 tablespoons of sea salt in a bucket of water and mop the floors with the mixture. Or you can place a small bowl filled with sea salt in each corner of the house which faces the northeast and southwest directions. The bowls of salt should be left in an open space and not placed in a cupboard. It should be replaced every 2 months.

2. Clean rugs, curtains, walls, windows etc.  Every time you clean your home you are removing negative energy. Cleaning your home or workspace will make it lighter and more positive. This is a result of organizing, of ridding yourself of things you no longer need and removing toxic products from your environment. Just opening windows brings in fresh, positive energy.

3. Remove clutter. Things like old magazines and dirty clothes can trap a lot of negative energy in your house. Remove old items you no longer need. Keep coffee tables picked up and clean. Put your laundry in a laundry basket. Wash your dirty dishes and put them away. Negative energy needs objects to hang on to so it can remain around.

4. Loud noises. This is the reason the Chinese love fireworks. Loud noises break up energy patterns and allow them to disperse. Mother Nature does the same thing with the noise of thunder storms.

5. Open windows and let fresh air in and negative energy out.

6. A meditation once or twice a day in your living space will broadcast out a powerful positive vibration, making positive energy more powerful than negative energy. A proper meditation will saturate a space with uplifting energy for several hours.

7. Other space clearing techniques include burning candles, dowsing; smudging with herbs (white sage) or incense; clearing with bells, cymbals and singing bowls; and clearing with chanting. Burn lavender, mint or eucalyptus incense inside every room of the home. These scents will infuse positive energy into the home and will push out anything negative.

8. Rearrange the furniture, again negative energy needs something to “cling to.” Arrange your space with as much wide open space as possible, allowing any negative energy to disperse. But also the act of rearranging will cause this harmful energy to dissipate.

9.  Add living plants. Plants add colour, life, oxygen and positive energy to your home.

10. If all else fails then call in an expert, they will do the clearing for you and pick up on anything else that may be going on, like a un happy resident spirit.

A season, a reason, often it’s a lesson.

Earth-Angel

Have you ever thought that you didn’t meet a certain person by chance, that it was meant to happen, for whatever the reason? Sometimes people come into our lives that are not meant to be forever, for some of us it’s a season others it’s a reason and often it’s a lesson. Some of our relationships are rougher than others, but all end up an important part of our life journey.

So, here are 5 types of cosmic connections you may encounter on your journey:

  1. Those meant to awaken us.

These people come into our lives that are meant to stop us in our tracks, they will not allow us to move forward without realising that change is needed, this is where nothing ever seems to go according to plan, often there is always a bigger picture and just we have to wait for it to unfold.

  1. Those who remind us.

Sometimes we come across people who remind us of the path we are supposed to be on, often we get sidetracked and these people often come along temporarily and leave a lasting change inside your heart and soul and put us back on track.

  1. Those that help us grow.

These people are meant to help us grow as a person, they teach us things and lessons sometimes painful ones, and more than likely ones we would not have chosen or been able to do on our own, everything gets better with time, often it’s not what we get thrown at us, its how we deal with what we get, that makes us grow.

  1. Those that hold space for us.

There are people who come into our life who are meant to hold space for us. They make small talk and most of the time we don’t even get their names. This could be a stranger on a bus or even a worker in a coffee shop they show compassion and make us feel better and that there are nice people out there. I call these people earth angels they just show up at the right time, when we need a bit of kindness.

  1. Those that stay

One day when we are ready the Universe will give us someone special who will stay with us forever, someone who is our fate part or our life plan.  We  will encounter many people who stay, lasting friendships and close family but that one person that we all long for, is our soul mate that one person that just seems to make everything better.

Moon Child

Knowing which moon phase we are currently in can help us to arrange and run our lives more smoothly. Below is an introduction to the Moon Phases giving an insight into which is the best phase to do things in our day to day lives to help achieve the best result.

The New Moon

The New Moon, can be seen as a symbol of new beginnings, it is a good time to start new work projects and build new relationships, a time for new challenges and new cycles. This is not a time to analyze but to allow things to grow and flourish. Any new starts at this time will grow and develop. Our energy levels are usually high at this time.

The Crescent Moon

The Crescent Moon, can be seen as a time of transition when we become aware that although we are still influenced by the past, it is over and the promise of the future is yet to be revealed. There are things from the past that we may have to lay to rest before moving forwards to fulfil our hopes and dreams. You may find that this is a good time to open up and talk.

First Quarter Moon

The First Quarter Moon, is a time when things are starting to come to a peak you may feel a slight irritation but this is just due to the need to sort things out, as yet you may not know what needs sorting. Step back and assess things objectively. It’s a time for looking at ideas and searching for solutions to any problems that may have arisen. This can prove to be a very sensitive time, but can also bring you the courage needed to help you to move forward.

Gibbous Moon

The Gibbous Moon, is a good time to devote ourselves to that which has great meaning to us. We are able to use our mental abilities which are very clear during this time. You may have truly brilliant discoveries or ideas and can look clearly at what you have already accomplished. Due to our heightened energy levels we are able to give more of ourselves.

Full Moon

The Full Moon, often during this time we are able to see ourselves clearly and any hidden tensions within are revealed. We are able to see both sides of any issue and we are able to work on any imbalances. This is an excellent time to meditate in relation to any personal issues that may be concerning you. A time for acknowledgments and answers to things that may have been hidden from view until now. It is also a good time for romance and fertility.

Disseminating Moon

The Disseminating Moon, this is often when we are aware of what we have already learned and we have probably have learned our lessons well. It is a time to take any social obligations sincerely. You may feel strongly that you want to pass on those hard learned lessons.  At this time you may wish to share your knowledge and wisdom with others.

Last Quarter Moon

The Last Quarter Moon, is a time when all aspects of our lives that need balancing are magnified, a time to tie up those loose ends, and a time of conscious action. You  have the ability to choose how to act or react and you are in charge of the outcome of any difficult situations. It is up to us whether we act or not.

Balsamic Moon

The Balsamic Moon, is a time to reap what you have sown. If you have learned those lessons then you are now able to move on. This is a time of karma, this is when the outcome, is out of our hands and we have to accept the decisions we have made previously. This is a good time to let go of the past and get ready to move on.

The Raven, The Magic & The Journey

5825241747cce5ec9a8aac03982a7854

Through out time, the Raven has carried the medicine of magic. This has been the case in many cultures. We honour the Raven as the bringer of magic, it is sacred, in the medicine ways. Those who fear Raven may do so because they have been dabbling in areas in which they had no knowledge, Shamanic journeying, magical workings or a spell that may have backfired on them. Rather than analysing the dark side of sorcery, one should realize that you will only fear the Raven if you need to learn about your inner fears or your own created demons.

Raven magic is a powerful medicine that can give you the courage to enter the darkness of the unknown or the void, which is the home of all that is not yet in form. Some call it the Great Mystery. The Great Mystery existed before all other things came into being, spirit lives inside the void and the Raven is the messenger of the void.

If a Raven appears in your spread, dream or journey you are about to experience a change in consciousness. This may involve walking a spiritual path or doing something new if you are already learning the ways of spirit. It would be a signal brought to you by the Raven that says, ” You have earned the right to see and experience a little more of life’s magic.”

In Native teachings the colour black means many things, but it does not mean bad or evil. Black can mean the seeking of answers, the void, or spiritual. The blue-black of the Raven contains an iridescence that speaks of the magic of darkness a changeability of shape and form that brings an awakening in the process.

Raven is the guardian of ceremonial magic and in absent healing. In many healing circles, the Raven guides the magic of healing and the change in consciousness that will bring about a new reality and dispel disease or illness, the Raven brings in wellness.

It is the messenger that carries all energy flows of ceremonial magic between the ceremony itself and the intended destination. For instance, if a ceremony is being performed to send energy to a disaster area where people need courage and strength, the Raven would be the courier for that energy flow. The intention could be to allow the people of the devastated area to feel the concern and support of the participants in the ceremony.

If you have chosen a Raven, and then magic is in the air, don’t bother trying to figure it out, you can’t. It is the power of the unknown at work, and something special is about to happen. The deeper mystery, however, is how you will respond to the synchronicity of this alchemical moment. You can recognize it and use it to further enhance your growth, you can accept it as a gift from spirit, try not to limit the power given by trying to explain it away.

It may be time to call upon a Raven as a courier to carry an intention this may be some healing energy, a thought or a message. The Raven is the patron of smoke signals or spirit messages represented by smoke. So if you want to send a message to spirit, in order to contact your ancestors call a Raven or possibly, the ancients may be calling you to give you the answers that you seek.

Remember, this magic came from the void of darkness, and the challenge is to bring it to light and in doing so you will honour the magic within.

Shamanic Meditation Classes

th shaman med

Shamanism for thousands of years has helped with personal intuitive development and divination. It is effective in working to heal the self. Shamanism can support and sustain positive personal growth and enhance your spiritual connection. Journeying is a powerful meditative state. It takes us into a very special level of consciousness that helps us work more deeply with our intuition with spiritual guidance.

Prolonged hypnotic drumming is used to promote relaxation and the experience of a trance like visionary awareness. Through journeying, we can find alternative realms during our visions and dreams through spirit travel we can open the door to an awareness to other worlds. These other worlds are sources of the energy, creativity and passion, finding our way there can be a blessing that brings us wisdom and self-empowerment in a positive, healing way.

Journeying is often done lying down, with our eyes closed, while in meditation we travel to other realms. There are generally three types of journeys that can be undertaken.

Lower World can be a dimension of healing and self- empowerment. Upper World can be a place of wisdom and teaching. In Middle World, where spirit is present and ready to work with us.

Lie down and get comfortable, breathe deeply, close your eyes, allow yourself to be carried by the rhythm of the drum. Focus on a specific intent such as “I want to meet and ask advice of my Spirit Helpers” or “I want to talk with my Guardian Angel” or “I want to work on healing for myself.

We begin by focusing and going to a safe place. Many people choose a beautiful garden or beach, and then look for an entryway into the earth, maybe through a hollow in a tree, you are carried by the sound of the drumming as you let yourself explore this wonderful place, seeking out your Spirit Helpers. The Lower World often has a loving, earthy feel. It is frequently inhabited by Spirit Guides who are deeply connected to Mother Earth, mythical animals and elfin creatures.

When you encounter a being in your traveling, whether its human, animal, angel or spirit , ask it if it is in fact your Spirit Guide, Helper, Teacher or Power Animal. You can ask its name, what wisdom or message it has for you, why is it in your life, what you can or should work on together. Then, let your Journey proceed, doing as your Helper directs. At the end of the journey you hear the callback rhythm of the drum a sound like four insistent rapping on a door, or when you feel you have completed your Journey’s you can tell your Helpers that you wish return to ordinary reality.

Remember to thank them for their assistance, lastly you will hear a series of light, rapid drumbeats, during this rhythm, allow yourself to drift gently back into your body. Reverse the path you took during your spirit travel. There will then be a second series of the four rapping’s on the door. That’s the time to let yourself properly reconnect with your body. Slowly, gently open your eyes. Come back to realty.

These classes will start in June on a Sunday afternoon in Chelmsford town centre, cost £10 if you would like to join us message me you will need to put your name down and payment is up front.

Crystals & Lithomancy

lithomancy1

Most of us love crystals we like to wear them as jewellery or have them on display at home but they can also be used for meditation, manifestation, healing, psychic development and readings.

With loads of different types of crystals to choose from it can get a bit confusing on where to start so here are a few that might help if you are a beginner.

Tigers Eye is used for grounding and protection, both of which are really important when you start opening up your psychic abilities.

When it comes to actually opening up, Amethyst is a really good crystal to use.  In ancient cultures, only the Priestesses, Priests or Kings had access to the mystery of this stone and it is said to effectively plug us in to the cosmos itself, opening us and deepening our intuition and psychic ability.

Flourite is believed to take us even further along that journey but it needs be used with a lot of respect and reverence as it can open us up really quickly this a powerful stone and it should be used with great care.

Rose Quartz is linked with the heart chakra and is the stone of unconditional love,
very good especially if you are thinking of working as a psychic reader as it will also help you put aside your own judgements and do your readings from a pure heart.

Citrine is a lovely light coloured stone that can help us feel optimistic and deeply
connect with a strong sense of our own abilities and self worth, so it’s great for boosting confidence along the way.

Clear Quartz crystals these crystals can absorb negative energy and they can also be bought in a wand shape for directing energy also look out for ones that are still in their natural form with a point, rather than those that are polished into spherical or other shapes.

Before you use your crystals, it’s important to cleanse them.  To do this, simply hold the stone under running water, as the water runs over the stone, visualise it being cleansed.

So now that your crystal is cleansed its ready for action, so now need to charge it, this means “instructing” the stone to do what you require of it, and you especially need to do this part if you are working with clear quartz or healing stones that have a particular healing property they need to be reminded of what it is that they will be doing, and it is very handy to do this if you will be giving it to a loved one, you have to tell it exactly what you want.

So find a comfortable and quiet place, so that you can connect with the energies within the crystal, hold the crystal and breathe slowly and deeply, feeling the crystal within your hand and focus upon how you want it to help you. In the beginning you may feel a little silly doing this but as you progress, you will become more and more used to it and may also find yourself meditating whilst charging them.

Keep them in a safe place where they can’t be handled by others, and ask that no one touch them or put them in a small pouch or box out of sight if you don’t feel comfortable explaining what you are doing.

Once you feel comfortable and have collected a few could give Lithomancy at try, it’s the ancient art of casting stones, and this is a very basic method it will get you started and working with your crystals on a psychic level.

This is a simple yes or no method the stones are as decided before the cast. For example, a black and white stone can be selected and the black one means “no” and the white one “yes” Then cast the stones having decided that, say, the one that lands closest to you is the answer, other variations that you might use is a silver one meaning “maybe”. Or use four stones – a white, black, silver, and brown, and have the silver one mean “maybe yes” and the brown one “maybe no”. A popular reading is to use five stones, with one being the Personal Stone. Then the stone that lands closest to the personal stone indicates the answer.

Have fun, connect with your crystals and see which ones work for you, and if you’re like me over time you will end have a whole collection to work with and admire.

May – Flower Moon

may flower moon - Copy

On May 10th we have the full moon in Scorpio.

The flower moon in Scorpio invites us to embrace love, intelligence and creativity, it leads us to try and experience new things, as well as heal and release old emotions. Don’t not forget that Scorpio has a sting in its tail, so take each new step slowly and calmly.

It is the fifth full moon of the year, the name of the month comes from Maia, the roman goddess of fertility, chastity, wealth and health. May is the month of flowers and berries, the time to fill our home with flowers.

The moon of May is powerful for performing all kinds of magic to develop and strengthen your spiritual side as well as a time of transformation and understanding your personal power by knowing that you are not alone, and that you have a team of spirit guides and angels that are on your side to help you move through life.

Many astrologers and ancient cultures have always believed that the Scorpio full moon is one of the most powerful for reaching out to ancient ancestors and guardian spirits. It is also believed to be one of the best full moon’s for rituals and manifestation work and psychic readings.

With so much magic energy circling in the first part of May, it is going to be impossible not to feel the effects of this full moon.

When the moon is in the water signs like Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces it is a good time for magic involving the element water, for increasing our intuition and to bring about changes.

When the moon is in Scorpio, it is also good for revealing secrets using magic, spells and rituals, related to passion, love and intense emotions, It is the best night to make love potions and spells, so during this moon why not take full advantage of her power 🙂

You can use it to combat apathy or depression if you have been feeling a little off balance lately.

It is the moon of knowledge, the best moon to conjure spirits that reveal the past and the future of things. The full moon nourishes us with energy in every aspect of our life, but not everything is love or light remember that the moon also has its dark side that assumes an important role in balancing our emotions and different facets, the moon in Scorpio produces uncomfortable situations where jealousy, resentment, revenge, violence, desires and passions are intermingled.

Rituals & Magic

This lunar phase is a good time to carry out regressions, have psychic / future readings and strengthen clairvoyance.

On this moon you can also invoke water nymphs and inhabitants of the deep sea.

Use blue shades green candles for rituals, altars should face west if possible.

Crystals: Moonstone, Emerald, Amber, Jade and Pearls.

Moon flowers: Lilies & Roses

Colours: Yellow, Blue and all shades of Green.

Animal, the Bull and the Eagle.

Incense, Angelica, Cinnamon and Star anise

Maia, goddess of prosperity and health with her blessing you receive calm to make good decisions. Draw the magic circle, this time we can do this either in a room or in an open space. Burn some cinnamon sticks or incense, fill a small cauldron with a blend of essential oils that have floral scents, your choice, flower petals of different colours, sugar, cinnamon and a piece of peridot or agate, while mixing recite the following.

“We wake Nature up and in this ritual we invoke its spirits, make me tolerant, make me patient, make me wise and accompany me in every choice and every step with calm and wisdom.”

Remove the crystal from the mixture and bury it as an offering to the spirits. You can use the mixture try adding it to your bath.

Love Spell

During May full moon we can make this simple but effective love spell place in your Altar some flowers and roses, symbolizing the nature and the power of spring. In a circle made with rose petals place a rose quartz, burn a jasmine incense stick and light a strawberry or other scented candle, write in a paper or parchment your full name and that of your loved one, write your love one’s initials on a rose petal and your initials on another rose petal.

Place both petals and the parchment inside of an envelope with the crystal, close it and anoint it with a few drops of essential oil roses or jasmine oil at each end, leave it on the altar until midnight, then light a new red candle and burn it. The only thing left will be the rose quartz and ashes, which you will bury in a garden the following morning.

If you have been thinking about having a reading, to see where your life is heading this would be a good week to book one and start to make some positive changes.

Beltane

5d7cbacd7704e9ab963b6125dd7ca6b8

 

Beltane is one of my favourite pagan holidays because it represents fertility, abundance and growth.  Like Samhain, the opposite holiday on the Wheel of the Year, this is also a time when the veil between the realms is thin, and a good time to communicate with the spirit world, especially nature spirits.

A festival of fun and merriment, a time of feasting and Maypole dancing,  as we celebrate the woodland union of The God and Goddess it is a time of rejoicing in the Earth’s fertility.  A beautiful time of year, often some of the sunniest warm days and surrounded by May blossoms, bluebells in the forests the whole world blooming with new life.

Beltane is associated with the Celtic God Bel, also known as Balor or Belenus. He is a God of Light and Fire, and associated with the Sun (akin to the Greek Apollo). Fires were the traditional symbol of Beltane.

Maypole dancing, originally a trunk of a fir tree with side branches removed, but you can use any large branch to tie your ribbons on its great fun. It also represents the ancient phallic symbol of fertility and the God aspect. The cauldron represents the goddess for love romantic and well as self love.

People would jump over the sacred Beltane fire, the young, unmarried men would leap the bonfire and wish for a wife, while young women would leap to ensure fertility.

Beltane fire ritual

Build a fire outside make sure it’s somewhere safe and dance round it with your partner or friends. In ancient times this was done naked after drinking a fair amount of wine. It was probably more fun that way! Anyway, fully clothed is more an expectable way to have a fire ceremony.

Designate a May Queen and King of the Forest to lead the celebrations and dancing. Invite your loved ones and friends to celebrate and together you eat and drink.

Beltane blessing

Beltane is here, and we welcome the time of fertility.
We greet this season of fire, love, and passion
with open arms and loving hearts.
We come together to create life
to honour the Divine union between masculine and feminine
from which all life flows.
As the Earth grows and creates life, we shall grow and create life.
So mote it be.

Beltane celebrations

Gods and Goddesses of Beltane – Green Man, Spring Maiden, May Queen.

Prepare a crown of flowers for the May Queen/Maiden.

Prepare a crown of greenery and a staff with bells, long ribbons and leaves for the Green Man.

Beltane Incense: Mulberry, lilac and frankincense.

Candle Colours: Yellow and White.

Ritual Colours: Green and Yellow.

Decorate your Altar with green and yellow, May blossom and young Oak leaves.

Kindle a bonfire, make and cook your own oatcakes.

Create your own Maypole, crown with a circle of young leaves, fresh May blossom and flowers, decorate with ribbons and bells. Go dance and enjoy

Decorate your altar in vibrant flowers you can use roses and flowers in any rainbow hues, and don’t forget your crystals.

Make your own sacred maypole using found wood, rainbow ribbons, and topped with a quartz point you can also place this on your altar.

If you’re looking to attract a new love, light a purple or green candle on the evening before May 1, and again on May 1 night, while you visualize the relationship coming into your life, asking that it manifest for the highest good of all.

So it is, so it shall be, and so it has always been. As you celebrate this special day, let the colours of nature inspire you to remember that all things bloom again, and a time for lovers to find each other again.

May you find yourself, your spirit, your passion, remember it’s never too late for you to become who you are intended to be.

How to make a Magical Pomander

You will need the following items for this spell:

An orange with an oily skin
A nail or knitting needle
A good quantity of whole cloves
Cinnamon powder
Plastic bag
Ribbon & Pins

Stud the orange with whole cloves complete with stems, bud side out. It is easier to insert the cloves if you poke a small hole first with the nail or knitting needle.

Space the cloves evenly in a pattern that pleases you, leaving room to tie the ribbon. The cloves will move closer together as the orange dries out.

As you work keep your intent for the pomander in mind. Place the powdered cinnamon in the plastic bag, and shake the pomander inside the bag until it is well coated with the powder.

Leave in a warm place to dry out, which can take up to six weeks.

Check frequently that the orange is not going mouldy, but try not to open the bag.

Lastly, tie the ribbon around the pomander, fixing it securely with the pins.
Hang the pomander where you can both see it and enjoy the fragrance.
When you come to dispose of the pomander, throw it into a fire.

Say: As I return this to its Element Sun, Jupiter, Venus I thank you for your help.

The pomander can last up to a year before its fragrance completely fades.

All the components are ruled by the element of Fire and the relevant deities and planetary influences are Sun for the orange, Jupiter for the cloves and Venus for the cinnamon.
