Thoughts, staff picks, and lots of fun.

Crying over your good fortune? That just won't due. Read this.

June 9 dont let em steal your mojoStressors of the week June 9, 2019: What will help me accept the good things in my life? Have you ever gotten sad when things are just getting  awesome and dreams are coming true?  It happens. Let’s ask the Coventry Oracle deck, how we can stop feeling guilty or sad and embrace the good in life?

Every Week the planets journey through our solar system and impact our lives in both helpful and antagonistic ways.  Coventry Creations products are here to help.

Card 1. Overcome your challenge – Money Draw Hoo Doo candle – “Stop feeling so poor and letting your fears (or guilt) tell you there is not enough to go around.”  This is called poverty mentality.  Did you know some very rich people struggle with fear around money and then start fearing people?  Don’t be like them, if you have prosperity in your life, it’s because you earned it.  Light the Money Draw candle to demonstrate you are a magnet for prosperity in any form.  Plus the Plus the best thing to do when you are abundant is to share. Be generous and keep the energy flowing

Card 2. Transform fears into strength – Gossip Stop Hoo Doo candle – “Clear out the negative chatter that makes life toxic.”  Sometimes people get jealous of your good fortune.  They don’t see the road you traveled to acquire your new car, beautiful home or great job. Honestly what they think about you is really none of your business.  Let them be and keep on feeling gratitude for what you have earned.  I know you want to be loved and appreciated, but if the ones around you can’t be loving, then they are not your people.  Light this candle to shield you from petty conversations that are there only to bring you down. There is absolutely no good reason to be ashamed of being successful.

Card 3. Create what you desire – Inner Beauty Affirmation candle – “It’s a fact that your brilliance attracts the energy that money is made of.”  Like attracts like and your good fortune was more than just luck. You have a beautiful soul and its working overtime to show you all the good karma you’ve earned. Don’t worry about whether or not you deserve this boon, you have, simply because it’s here. Embrace this mana from heaven and show your gratitude by making it grow, by sharing and by being happy.  Invest in your future, yourself and any other worthy cause that brings you joy. Light this candle and let it refelct back to you your beautiful soul.  You shine like a diamond.

Why does my social life suck?

June 2 2019 stop messing with my funStressors of the week June 2, 2019: How do I create more fun in my life? Oh Gemini you do inspire us to put ourselves out there, but let’s face it, we can sabotage even the best laid plans. Let’s ask the Coventry Oracle deck, how we can stop sabotaging our relationships and plans and have some well needed fun?

Every Week the planets journey through our solar system and impact our lives in both helpful and antagonistic ways.  Coventry Creations products are here to help.

Card 1. Overcome your challenge – Evil Eye Witches Brew candle – “Make sure your love affair, friendships or plans are clear of the jealous haters that can cause damaging drama.”  Are you surrounding yourself with the right people?  The best way for a fun evening to go south is to share it with people who worry too much, compete with you or are not in to you. Take care of you by lighting this candle and let it be your bouncer in your circle of “friends”.  

Card 2. Transform fears into strength – Querent Caller Hoo Doo candle – “You are the magnet for that love connection (friendships too) you are seeking. Send out the call and many will answer.”  If your inner voice is telling you that nobody likes you then it’s time to prove it wrong.  Light this candle, put on your party dress and a smile on your face and be the person you admire.  Like attracts like and if you want to be liked, you have to be likeable, just don’t cross the line of authenticity.  This way you will attract the right people into your life.

Card 3. Create what you desire – Protection Blessed Herbal candle – “It’s okay to keep a bit of yourself protected when beginning a relationship.”  There is good vulnerability and bad vulnerability.  On the one hand you want to let people in so they can get to know you and see they are with a real person. On the other hand you have to have healthy boundaries.  When you are not clear on the difference, light this protection candle and you will be cautioned when you are letting too much of your belly show.  It may come as a little sting to your ego or it may re-direct a person out of your life when you are not seeing that all they want from you is EVERYTHING.  Trust you are in good hands with Coventry candles and go have some fun with really cool people just like you!

Absolutely that’s really fun, but not when you have important details to attend to and crucial decisions to make.

Every Week the planets journey through our solar system and impact our lives in both helpful and antagonistic ways.  Coventry Creations products are here to help.

Card 1. Overcome your challenge – Spiritual Cleansing Blessed Herbal Candle – There is way too much on your mind this week and the burden of it all is making living in a fantasy all too attractive.  Clear your mind and emotions of extraneous negative thoughts and feels.  Meditate with this candle and release all your angst into the flame so you can think again.

Card 2. Transform fears into strength – Reversing Hoo Doo Candle – Put the brakes on your worrying and fussing. Then put your situation in reverse by leveling the playing field.  If all were equal, which idea, solution or opportunity shines a little brighter?  Follow that light and you will execute the exact plan that will transform your to do list into a ta done list. Light this candle to help you transform your stressors into strengths.

Card 3. Create what you desire – Come to Me Hoo Doo candle – Use your charisma to get you what you want and need to make your life easier.  Work smart not hard is the cliché of the week.  This will not only help you stay grounded in reality, you will create a life that is more palatable and still get the trash taken out.

How to stay chill, when you just want to punch someone in the throat.

May 13 how do we stay chillStressors of the week May 3, 2019: How do we stay chill when we just want to punch someone in the throat? People will seem extra defensive this week, even when we are all just trying to get along and work toward a common goal. Take in the wisdom of the Coventry Oracle deck before you act.

Every Week the planets journey through our solar system and impact our lives in both helpful and antagonistic ways.  Coventry Creations products are here to help.

Card 1. Overcome your challenge – Adam & Eve Hoo Doo candle –You and your partner can be closer, feelings can be deeper, and the commitment stronger when you invite love back in. Love is a verb and it is time to start acting like it.  Believe it or not, how you respond to any situation is completely in you control.  If your hurt emotions are driving the bus, it’s time to take back the wheel.  You don’t have to respond to defensiveness with offensiveness. Use this candle to rekindle sweetness and compassion between you and your partner.

Card 2. Transform fears into strength – Emotional Balance Blessed Herbal candle – When you are at the end of your rope emotionally, it’s tempting to just let it fly, only to regret it later.  Balance the underlying emotional cause of your own defensiveness and release pent up emotions in healthy creative ways. Save yourself a ton of grief and light this candle to make sure your emotional release flows gently and in balance.   

Card 3. Create what you desire – Dragons Blood World Magic candle – Amp up your charisma times ten with the help of this candle and your every wish for happiness will be returned to you.  No need to let other’s bad moods get you down when love is present.  Nothing levels the playing field of relationships like self- love and knowing that others are loved too.  It cuts right through the veneer of the bad moon, defensiveness and plain old crabbiness. Light this candle and expand your awareness of love and manifest peace, love and good luck in your life.

Weekly Staff Pick- Rose of Jericho

Rose of Jericho

 

 

Rose of Jericho is a desert flower. It is the Resurrection Flower that brings needed change. In its dry form, it rolls around with the help of the desert winds, but on those rare occasions of rain, it will open up it's green limbs. When it dries up again, it will continue its journey. In your own home, it can be used as a spell to bring life or energy back in your domestic life. You can put it anywhere, but for re-energizing your home, the living or family room is best.

Just put into a bowl of water for a week. When the week is over, empty the bowl of water and let it shrivel back up. The following week, fill the bowl with water again. Repeat the spell as necessary, but if you don't need it anymore, just let it shrivel up and save it when you need it again. To bring money back in your home, follow the same ritual, but keep 5 coins in the bowl at all times.

 

We have them here at the shop!

Loose Incense

picmonkeyimage

 

 

 

 

 

 

     Everyone and their uncle use incense. It’s nothing new, been around for thousands of years. The incense we know today are mostly stick and cone types that have lots of binders and extras in them to help stay together and stay lit.

     A few months ago I was introduced to loose incense, powder incense, and resin incense. I had a hard time figuring out what to do with at first when I got my first jar. Was I supposed to just light it? No it went out too fast. Keep it out like potpourri? No, none of the scent came from it and none of its magical properties were being used just sitting there.

     Then I found the accessory that went with it. Charcoal discs! They stay lit for forty-five minutes to two hours and let you use as much or as little incense as you want. All types of loose incense are made and here at the Candle Wick Shoppe we have all types from Patchouli and Dragon’s Blood Resin to Love Attraction and Meditation.

     Come check them out in the store at 175 W 9 Mile Road, Ferndale, Michigan.

Agonizing over decisions got you down?

agonizing over a decision apr 29Stressors of the week April 29: Making decisions. It could be your career, your stuff, your life direction.  Pick a candle or three to help you get focused, organized and decisive.

Every Week the planets journey through our solar system and impact our lives in both helpful and antagonistic ways.  Coventry Creations products are here to help.

We pulled three cards from our Coventry Magic Oracle decks to get the perfect message for this week.

Card 1. Overcome your challenge – Shut your Mouth Wicked Witch Mojo candle –Listen to your heart and not the chatter of those gossiping Monkeys.  It’s great to get advice but ultimately you have to make your own decisions.  After you have heard the good intentions of others, level the playing field by looking at all your options as equal.  Which decision are you most drawn to when there are no obstacles?  Burn this candle to help you shut our well meaning but bothersome overhelping from others.

Card 2. Transform fears into strength – Inner Balance – When the scales are balanced there is nothing left that needs to be healed. Indecision will create weakness and when we are weak we are scared.  How do you create inner balance?  You let the important elements of your life take precedent over the things that don’t matter and put your focus there. Burn this candle to create harmony between your mind and emotions.

Card 3. Create what you desire – New Moon Drawing Down the Moon candle – Everything is in position for you to let go of that final painful lesson.  What are you attached to?  Find out why so you can make the decision that is waiting to be made. Clear the path for your new beginnings. Burn this candle to prepare the way for the next chapter in your life, be it clean closets or a new career.

Selenite!

20190417142743

Selenite! It’s a stone often considered a must have in everyone’s witchy kit.

 What is it and why is it so great? Selenite is a very fragile clear stone that crumbles when put under pressure, but if worked correctly it becomes a smooth strong stone. It belongs to the third eye and crown chakras, as well as the lesser known transpersonal and etheric chakras.

That was what selenite is and where it belongs. What it’s good for is cleansing. The reason it’s a staple for most energy based witches is because it cleanses auric and personal energy. It clears out negative energy like a champ. Selenite is often used in healing massages and reiki massages. It clears the paths in your chakra and in your life. It’s a great stone to have on hand and to have with your other stones to keep their energy nice and clean.

Here at the Candle Wick Shoppe we have a couple versions!

You can find us in Ferndale at 175 W Nine Mile Road.

How to take charge of the situation

Every Week the planets journey through our solar system and impact our lives in both helpful and antagonistic ways.  Here is how you can use Coventry Creations products to help you balance out the astral energy of the week. 


April 14 2019

Stressors for the week: Aggressive words used in conversations trigger us. Things are moving too fast to be fully comprehended and can lead us to making mistakes. Pick a candle or three to help you with how you’re reacting.

 

Card 1. Overcome your challenge – Healing Affirmation candle – Your volatile emotions are gumming up the works.  They are sending messages of fear or anger or jealousy.  You’ve got some internal strife to reconcile.  Heal your heart so your emotions don’t make you so vulnerable to the energy around you. 

Card 2. Transform fears into strength – Tranquil Home Hoo Doo candle – In our safe space, a tranquil home, we are relaxed and take life at a slower pace.  Whatever you heard and how it was delivered can upset your apple cart if you let it.  This candle will help you rise above the aggression and stay peaceful within. That is where your strength lies.

Card 3. Create what you desire – Road Opener Hoo Doo candle – The world is your oyster shell. You can take any irritant and transform it into something precious.  Use this Road opener candle to help you stay open minded enough to turn any opposition into an opportunity to learn something impressive about yourself.  Create your own pearls of wisdom.

Weekly Staff Pick- Pink Himalayan Salt Lamps

            20190320121804Pink Himalayan sea salt lamps! You’ve probably heard of them before. Everyone was talking about them not to long ago, but what is it actually meant to do? Look aesthetically pleasing? Cure all my diseases? Just make people think I’m cool and spiritually inclined?

            To make a long story short, a salt lamp doesn’t do much for internal medicine. At this point in history, there is no research pointing to a salt lamp curing all that ails you. What it does do, however, is help with your spiritual healing. It can help with anxiety and sleep issues because it has a calming, grounding energy. There have been studies that the low light of the salt lamp is better in the evening than the harsh overhead lights in your ceiling.  The study said that going from bright lights to pitch black makes it harder to fall asleep; whereas going to a dimmer les harsh light before turning your lights out completely triggers the brain to prepare for rest.

That being said, the salt lamp grounds the energy and clears the mind: I highly recommend it for people who suffer from anxiety, depression, and ADHD. It helps with all of that for me and most of the people I asked about it.

We have them here at the shop!

Sage is Back!

WeeklyPick3 5sageSage bundles!

What are they? What do they do? How do I use them? Why would I use them?

The answers are simple, really.

A bundle of sage, or a smudge stick as they are known for Native American practices, is just that! A bundle of dried sage. Sometimes you can find them with other herbs tied in for different purposes, like yerba santa, roses, and basil. Today though, let’s talk about straight up sage sticks.

To put it simply, the smoke of the sage cleanses an area, object, or being of all active energy. What that means is, any energy in that area will dissipate until you bring it back in. Good, bad, and neutral. I suggest that when you sage an area, you call in the good energies while casting out the bad. Also open your windows while burning any product that produces a lot of smoke like sage does. This also allows the energy to go out with the smoke. And because sage smoke smells like a burning Italian restaurant.

Now the all-important questions, why should you use the sage bundles? Have you been feeling bogged down? Like your life is in a rut? Sage will help you feel better. Not only will it make your aura energy lighter, it will make you feel like you’re being productive, which you are. Over all, sage is just a good cleansing herb that everyone should use. Just remember, white sage is endangered and blue sage works just the same!

We do phone orders! Give us a call at (248)-547-2987.

Or order online at candlewickshoppe.com!
