Thoughts, staff picks, and lots of fun.

Murray & Lanmans's Florida Water 15% OFF THIS Week ONLY!! IN-STORE Special

Murray & Lanman’s Florida Water

Florida water is an incredibly universal tool for the physical world as well as the spiritual. I always like to say you can use it to cleanse your face or your sacred space. Highly effective astringent properties make it a useful aftershave and face-rinse. You may sprinkle it about your sacred area to cleanse the energy, or objects that have accumulated unwanted energy. As someone that practices healing arts in both spiritual and energetic means as well as the physical via herbal remedies and cures, this is a useful tool in my “magic bag” or my medicine chest.

This item is a must have for any healer or magical practitioner.

Weekly CMO Reading

Good afternoon and welcome to our weekly CMO reading. This week is all
about asking for help, prosperity, and emotional balance.

Helping Hand let's us know that help is available, we only need to ask.
This card also beckons us to take the opportunity that sits in front of us.

Prosperity is not only about wealth and money. This card also tells us to
change the game to win, to rejuvenate, and to understand that we are strong
and have the ability to push forward.

Emotional Balance tells us to call on wisdom in order to recognize where we
are out of balance. Being emotionally balanced helps us recognize new
paths, when to call for help, and staying neutral in challenging
situations.

This week ask for help when you need to, rejuvenate, and stay balanced!

Check back next week! In the meantime, enjoy the new week!

Coloring by Candlelight

Sunday evening at the end of a long weekend seemed like the perfect time for friends to gather before heading back into our daily routines.

We all met at The Emory in Ferndale, ordered snacks and drinks and settled in for some deep conversation and coloring. Yes, coloring, with coloring books, crayons, pencils and markers. After all the sharing and admiration of our supplies, we all bowed our heads to color. It was so zen. After a few hours and some amazing art we all clinked glasses and made a vow to so this again soon. "This coloring thing is such a great idea!" I heard several times. "Next time lets bring more light."

Charge Black Tourmaline with Reiki

Turn this stone into a powerful guardian protector by adding reiki to it. Hold it in your left hand and beam reiki energy into it with your right hand. This will increase this stone's healing and shielding properties. Then wear it or carry it to keep energy vampires from tapping into your aura or chakras.

Place it near your computer TV and microwave to absorb electromagnetic waves. Place around your rooms to absorb negative moods and thoughts.

Wear it while giving a reiki treatment to help keep you grounded. Gain clarity and confidence by putting this amazing stone on your solar plexus and meditating on a problem.

These are just a few of the ways Black Tourmaline and Reiki together can improve your life.

Come see us at the Candle Wick Shoppe we have gorgeous black tourmaline in stock.Sent from my iPhone

Weekly Oracle Reading: Negativity

Weekly Oracle Reading: Negativity

Ridding one's self of negative energy seems to be the theme of most of my customers magical purchases this week, and now is the perfect time to do it! Or at least that's what the CMO says. 

I did a reading for clearing, and got the following three candles that I suggest you get if you are getting rid of some nasty energy this week.

Makin' Tracks by Wicked Witch Mojo: While this is most often used to get rid of nasty neighbors or co-workers, hot-food those troublesome life issues with speed and efficiency. 

Reversing by Motor City Hoo Doo: All the drama and junk hanging around your spirit needs to go back to where it came from.

Recover Lost Money by Motor City Hoo Doo: Uncover your money leaks so you can clear them out.

Good luck to everyone kicking that negative energy out of your life! Do a reading for yourself with our online Oracle to find which candles you need.

Weekly Coventry Oracle Reading!

Weekly Coventry Oracle Reading!

This week marks the first of many weekly readings that I will be doing with the Coventry Magic Oracle deck from Coventry Creations. As many of you know, we have a copy in the store, and if you are feeling indecisive or looking for guidance, this deck helps you pick the candles you need, and how to use them for love, prosperity, protection, healing, and clearing.

This week, with a Retrograde in effect, I felt that it would be best to go with a Healing reading.

Card One: Lakshmi World Magic Candle

Lakshmi's healing comes with the relief of stress around financial issues. Call to Lakshmi in her eight manifestations of wealth

Card Two: Road Opener Motor City Hoo Doo Candle

You want your healers and doctors to know exactly how to help you and bring you back to good health.

Card Three: Soul Mate Affirmation Candle

It's time to heal your soul and all the times you've abandoned yourself over being hurt.

Sharon Knight and the Intimate Show.

Sharon Knight and the Intimate Show.

"I am deeply in love with this beautiful jewel of a planet we live on, and believe this world is full of magic if only we can remember to see it." [x]

That quote right there is from Sharon's bio page on her website, and reading that is when I knew that she was the coolest.

Sharon Knight's music is nothing if not some of the most magical that I've ever heard, and I was psyched to learn that she was coming to Candle Wick to perform. 

Some background: Sharon is a Celtic folk singer hailing from San Francisco and has an astonishing voice, as well as some rockin' octave mandolin skills. She has toured nationwide with her collaborator Winter who, by the way, co-founded their gothic folk metal band Pandemonaeon (bold text because how rad is that genre?), but this is going to be her first time performing in Michigan! 

Can you feel my excitement? 

August 6th, at our new 175 W. Nine Mile location. Join us!

You can listen to Sharon's songs on her website, link above, and you can purchase tickets for her show right here on our website! [click for tickets
