Morning Grounding Ritual

Rituals Spells & Rituals

Having trouble raising or maintaining your energy? Try this little morning ritual to boost your energy and intentions! I highly recommend doing Morning energy work because as we are waking our bodies up, our conscious and subconscious are still merged and it is the perfect time to reaffirm and set manifestation!

*.·:·.☽✧ ✦ ✧☾.·:·.*

Before you go to bed, pick out your favorite crystal and place it under your pillow. It doesn’t matter what kind it is, only that you’re personally connected to it. Next, set your alarm clock for 2 minutes earlier than normal, these 2 minutes will allow you the time to complete the morning ritual.

In the morning when your alarm goes off, keep your eyes closed and grab your crystal with both hands. Lay flat on your back and raise the crystal to the center of your forehead, keeping it in your hands. Visualize a bright light radiating from your hands from the crystal encompassing your whole body from the head down, like the sun rising over the horizon.

when your whole body is encompassed you can say and devotion or set any manifestation intention you want. When you are ready to start your day, open your eyes and get up! I’ve personally been using this energy gather technique for the past few weeks and have noticed such a difference in my day to day energy and all it takes is setting my alarm just a few minutes early. Have a great day y’all

What does it mean when my spell candle breaks?

Spells & Rituals Thoughts and Opinions

A broken candle is something that many witches encounter but for some reason isn’t talked about a super amount on the internet. I get questions almost weekly that read something along the lines of:

“I was doing a spell and the jar candle broke. Did I do something wrong?”

While there is no easy way to answer or address this, I’m here and I’m alive and I’m going to take a shot at it!


These altar candles are in glass jars which make them a super easy choice for the modern witch on the go. They’re sturdy, last for days, have an ok smell, cheap, and most of all effective. The thing is, they can’t really withstand extreme temperature fluctuations that well. A lot of broken jar candles comes down to the flame getting out of control for too long. The glass wasn’t meant to withstand all of the aftermarket upgrades that witches put it through, and sometimes it just comes down to user error

But what if…?

But what if it’s not user error? What if you’re reading this and you’re like no, my flame didn’t look like that and it still broke. What then? Honestly it could be a few things such as bad manufacturing, the crack was already there but you didn’t notice it until the wax and flame got to that section, or YES – it could be a spiritual sign


I’ve always been in the camp of a broken candle isn’t really the end of the world. If I know the candle was ok and my Spell was ok and the candle breaks I often take it to mean one of two things:

1) a positive affirmation/release of emotion, energy, or spirit OR

2) a sign from my ancestors to re-evaluate my intentions


It’s an honest truth but you’re not meant to succeed at every Spell you attempt. Sometimes your intentions are wrong, the time is wrong, the place is wrong. Sometimes you’re trying to run before you’ve even learned to walk or you are working against yourself. Your guides and ancestors are here to support you and by them intervening it’s a HUGE sign to step back and take a look at what’s going on from a more open perspective

In some traditions, a broken candle especially in protection, banishing, and hexing means that the spell work was successful. In some traditions a broken candle is akin to a broken mirror. Each practice and path is as individual as the person practicing it. If you have a candle that is broken but in your gut you KNOW that means it’s working, you do you!

Your path, Your Way!

You’re not wrong if you believe something different than me, and I strongly encourage you to keep practicing and exploring and coming to your own conclusions! Everyone has a different perspective from where they are, communicating and growing with each other is one of the biggest blessings of this lifetime (especially with the internet)

Aries 2019-2020: A Year of Me

Rituals Spells & Rituals


April 11

This year, my birthday came and went on April 11. This is nothing new and we all experience it each year, yet every year it becomes a beacon of some sort. A whole new world of possibilities, a new chance to be ‘different’ or a ‘new you’. As kids, we wake up eager to be a year older, wondering what has changed and being asked by all our friends if we feel any different.

I never felt any different. In fact, I have gone my whole life wondering where the magic of birthdays was because it certainly wasn’t with me. Was I missing something? Was I somehow left out? This year I figured it out – you create the magic!

After my birthday I went back to my normal life, doing normal things and one day (about a week and a half ago) it hit me. I don’t want this to be my life forever. I don’t want to be happy just accepting the safe route. I want to wear clothes that make me feel risky, I want to try new things, I want to be LIVING in the moment. I don’t want to care about how others perceive me anymore and instead want to chase after the things that bring me joy.

(New Year) Authentic Me – Freedom Ritual

If you’ve ever wanted to break free of the chains of judgement and just live as your own person, or break free of your OWN chains, this ritual is for you. You will need:

  • Small wooden chest or box of some kind (I buy mine from Michaels)
  • Black taper or coach candle
  • White Glass Jar Candle
  • Paper/Pen
  • Incense
  • A Mirror
  • Small offering
  • 20 mins of time to be alone

To begin, go to a location or altar that you feel grounded to. Time of day is really irrelevant, as long as you feel completely open. Facing the west, place the mirror in front of you. On top of the mirror, place the white jar candle. Next, light your incense and close your eyes. Allow yourself a few minutes to meditate and center yourself.

When you feel fully centered, invite your higher power into this space with you. Ask them to be present in this moment as you work through your shadows. Light the white candle. Take the small box or chest and place it in front of you, open. Grab your paper and pen and start writing all of the things down that you allow to hold yourself back. For me, this looked like, “I feel fat” “I am not good enough” “I can’t do that” etc. Write down all of the things that you mentally tell yourself, regardless of their origin. Anything that you want to let go of, anything that stands between you and your best life.

When you have those written out, place them in the box. Close the box. As you are closing the box say out loud, “The items in this box no longer serve me. I give them to you (higher power) and will replace them with myself. I give these feelings, I give these thoughts.” Next, affix your black candle to the box and light it. As you light this candle say, “In this box I am leaving behind the lies I have learned, the thoughts that have held me back, and the past that is not my future.”

As the candle burns, meditate on a new future. What will it look like? How will you feel? What is your first step? Rome wasn’t built in a day, take baby steps to get to where you want to be. Reflect on the realistic first steps you can take. When you have them, take your offering and offer it to your higher power, closing the end of the ritual. Thank them for being here and supporting you along your journey.

What now?

As you go back to the real world, remember your intention throughout this ritual. Everytime that voice of doubt creeps back in, you are faced with a choice to allow it or to push against it and see what will happen. For me, that looked like this:

I had seen this hanging on the rack and thought to myself, “I could never wear that” and in that moment I flashed back to my intention and thought, why not? What is stopping me? So I tried it on. And i LOVED it. I didn’t end up buying it but that wasn’t the hurdle that I was getting over. The act of breaking through my thinking was and while uncomfortable, with the support of my guides I made it happen. Since then I have gone to a number of places, tried on many clothes, and made new friends.

All it takes is a little faith in you!

Moon Water for Money Manifestation

Rituals Spells & Rituals Witch CRAFTS

via GIPHY — original art via ig @broke_isnt_bad

Years ago you could have told me that I would use moon water in parts of my practice and I would have scoffed at you. Ask me today and the addition of specific types of moon water is not only a welcome but a necessary part of some of my rituals. What is moon water? Well, it’s water that has been left out under the moon. That’s it.

Similar to any type of holy or blessed water, this is literally just water blessed by the moon. Moon water can be made under and phase of the moon and for any purpose. You can drink it, bathe in it, use it in rituals. Pretty much anything you can think of you can do with it.

Money & Moon Water

This specific moon water is designed to be used in money manifestation. I have been working with this specific setup for about a year now and I’ve found it very easy to do and useful. Since tonight is a super full moon, I figured what better time than to give everyone the opportunity to make it as well!


  • LARGE glass jar/bowl
  • Spring Water
  • Crystal that relates to money/finance/manifestation (I use Tiger’s Eye)
  • Any denomination dollar bill


You could make this as complicated or as simple as you want. I go for simplicity. As the sun sets, fill up your GLASS container with spring water. I find that using spring water is better for me personally, because I live in an urban area and my tap is full of chemicals. Once the container is full, add your crystals to the water and put the lid on.

Find a nice window or area that will receive moonlight on the SE corner of your home. Place the dollar bill on the windowsill, place the crystal water on top, and walk away. Sometimes I light a candle, sometimes I don’t. This is really a use your intuition type of thing.

Before the sun rises in the morning, take the crystal moon water and place it somewhere for safe keeping. Some people leave the water until they wake up, I remove it before the sun rises. It’s personal preference. The most important thing here is to KEEP THE CRYSTAL IN THE WATER! 

And there you have it! Money Manifestation Moon Water! If you decide to use this basic ritual tonight to make moon water, I’d love to see it! Tag me on instagram @wildwoman_witchraft 🙂

Have a blessed full moon y’all!

Manifesting Abundance

Rituals Spells & Rituals

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I get the Goddess Provisions box every month. This past months theme was “Abundance”, and it included this cute tin candle made by Cottage Wicks. If you haven’t heard of goddess provisions before, it is a monthly subscription box that focuses on self care and spirituality. I genuinely love the products in it, and they’re all full size! I’d highly recommend checking it out if you have the chance.

via @wildwoman_witchcraft

Anyhow, this month’s box was “Abundance” themed and included this wonderful candle made by Cottage Wick. Per their website, this candle has “A delicious blend of orange and ginger essential oil and topped with goldenrod, calendula, pyrite chips and citrine crystal.” This candle smells like the first spray of orange that hits your nose when you start to peel its skin. It is beautiful, yet functional. The only thing it didn’t come with, is a ritual. So, as polled in my insta story, here we are!

Recognizing Abundance

Before we get into the full ritual, I want to talk about abundance for a brief moment. When we manifest anything, it is because we are looking to gain or change something. Abundance is no different except that it REQUIRES us to look at what we already have been blessed with before we will be given more. If you come from a place of me, me, me your abundance rituals will always fail. Abundance requires us to see, appreciate, and be grateful for the things we are blessed to have before we will be given more.

Think about it this way; let’s say you have a small child. If you give a child a toy, they will play with it until they are bored. They may leave it around or otherwise forget about it if something new and shiny comes around. Over time, this behavior will cause clutter and chaos. You may find yourself saying, “I won’t buy you anything else until you learn to take care of the toys you already have.” The universe works this way too. Even in wealth and abundance rituals, we MUST do the hard work and figuratively appreciate what we have before we will be given more to take care of.

The Ritual

When I sat down to write this I decided I would actually make two forms, one short form that will only require a candle, paper, pen, and lighter; and then a slightly longer full bodied ritual that will transcend basic abundance. Lets get into it!

Simple Abundance Ritual

I am all about my simplified rituals. Sometimes we just don’t have the time, don’t have the ability, don’t have the means. Whatever the reason is that you want a simplified, bare bones ritual – look no further. For this ritual you will need:

  • Abundance Ritual Candle (or Green candle)
  • Paper
  • Pen

Setting the Intention

Before any ritual, I like to meditate. So I highly recommend sitting and meditating for approx. 10 minutes before starting this (or any ritual). This 10 minuets alone will allow your mind and spirit to reset from being digitally and physically connected to anything other than the intentions we are about to set.

Once you have meditated and reset your energy, light the candle. If you want to say a mantra as you light the candle, feel free. I personally don’t but that doesn’t mean you can’t.

Thanksgiving for Abundance

Under the light of the candle, with a reset and focused energy, begin to visualize all of the abundance currently in your life. Abundance can look like a full pantry, a couch full of friends and family, completing a college degree, a library full of resources, etc. Write down each of your abundances individually on a small piece of paper. Once each abundance has been written, pick them up one at a time, read them out loud, thank the universe for the blessings in your life, and burn them in the candle. Do this until you have thanked each of your blessings.

Manifesting Future Abundance

Next, we will work on manifesting future abundance. Close your eyes and visualize what abundance will look like in your life. Wealth? Health? Family? Career? Whatever it is, visualize yourself in it. What are you doing? How do you feel? How did you get here? Focus on this part, the more vivid you make your manifestation, the more powerful it will be.

Once you are done visualizing this abundance, write it on the piece of paper beginning with “I am”. It could sound like “I am abundantly surrounded by friends who support me” or “I am financially self-sufficient and comfortable in my lifestyle”. However you want to word it is fine. As you are writing it, visualize your manifestation again as vividly as if you were already living it. Once you get it written, fold the paper three times and set it in the flames. As it burns, close your eyes and continue to visualize your manifestation. Once this has burned, thank your ancestors and guides for listening and allow the candle to continue to burn.


What I love about this Cottage Wicks “Abundance” candle is that it has a citrine tumbled stone embedded in it. Once this abundance ritual is complete and the candle has burned down, remove and clean the crystal. Carry this crystal with you everyday for 12 days. In numerology, 12 related to abundance. Whenever you touch, see, think about the crystal go back to your vision of abundance briefly.

As originally stated, I did actually write a long form of this ritual, however I have decided not to include it in my blog. I hope that this short form basic ritual helps you! If you decide to use it, let me know! I’d love to hear how it works out for you!

New Years Manifestation Ritual Guide in 4 Easy Steps

Spells & Rituals
Photo by Temperance Alden

First, can I just start with how excited I am to finally have my own website! I have been building this all week and while it isn’t completely finished, I think it’s good enough to go live for now while I finish building some of the smaller components.

            I decided to build a whole blog/website because I get asked a log of questions and I don’t feel like I can ever cover enough ground via Instagram. The platform has been great for sharing my photos but not really for sharing information. I hope that this avenue will allow more information to find more people.

The Ritual

            Every year, I have an end of the year/beginning the new year ritual. They vary slightly but key components stay the same. I always have 15 candles, flowers, tarot cards, and a paper to write down to goals/what I want to manifest in the new year. Please note, this is a manifestation ritual and not a spell.

The 15 Pillars of Candle Manifestation

Why 15 candles? Its oddly specific, but its for a reason: 12 candles for each month of the new year + 2 taper candles (one to symbolize the year you are in and one to symbolize the year you are moving into or just came out of) + 1 white candle to release any baggage hanging on from the old year = 15 candles. The colors are not important except for the white candle to symbolize purification from past energy and clarity coming into the new year.

Flower Magick

As for flowers, I always have 24 roses on my New Years altar. One for each month of the year we move out of and one for each month of the year ahead. I personally use roses because they are easy for me to come by, but it really doesn’t matter what type of flower you use. What will matter though, is keeping these flowers. After my new years ritual I keep the flowers on my altar for a few days and then hang them up to dry. I use these flowers in every spell and ritual I do throughout the year to add my original manifestations to whatever I am building on top of them.

How to Manifest your New YOU for the New Year

You should have 12 papers, one for each month. As a side note, you should also have something to write on these with. This is a key part of the ritual so it is very important to take your time on this. This is not a petition to a god or a prayer for them to do something for you. This manifestation is about doing these things for yourself. On each of the papers, write down one word, phrase, sentence, or sigil that represents the specific thing you want to manifest. Visualize yourself living and receiving what you are asking for. This is KEY. You MUST believe these things can be yours.

For example, if you wanted to manifest love, you may see yourself on a date. You may also see yourself falling back in love with your partner, or even see YOU choosing to put your well-being above self harm. Visualize yourself in this new space. How does it feel? What are you doing and how can you keep it? This is the biggest and most important part of this ritual so take your time and don’t feel rushed.

When the time comes and you have written and visualized your new life, burn the paper. As it burns, visualize letting go of the past ways and welcoming the new ones into your life. You need to believe these things will be yours for this to work. Any doubt and you will sabotage yourself from manifesting these thigns.

A Year Ahead in Tarot

The very last thing you will do in this ritual will be the year ahead reading. Tarot cards will be used to do a year ahead spread. This MUST come after your manifestation ritual because it will be used to guide you through them. For each month draw a card. These cards dont predict what WILL happen, they are a guide to help you avoid things or go with them to stay on the path to fulfilling your desires.

Ready to see how its done?

New Years Ritual
Song: Clair de Lune by Ronan O’Hora

This year I used all red candles, but again do what you are called to do. You could use birthday candles or taper candles, it really doesn’t matter as long as your intention is there. This year I did set a salt/alcohol fire in my cauldron that was used to burn the bay leaves. I used bay leaves for my manifestations instead of paper to give it a little extra boost.

For those of you wondering, I do not cast circles or anything like that. It gets in the way of what I do and I also genuinely feel fake when I try to do them. I work in front of me, in front of a window and call upon my ancestors to help guide me through the new year.

At the end of the day, this is how *I* preform this manifestation ritual. Yours could look so different and that’s ok. This is just a template for you to see that witchcraft is all different and it really does embody the person preforming it. Don’t try and copy everyone else, forge your own path. Have a great new year y’all!
