Repel Vampires & Heal Your Energy

Vampires are real. Maybe not the Anne Rice or True Blood vampires, but vampires nonetheless.

The vampires I’m talking about are psychic vampires, or energy vampires. These are people or spirits who intentionally or unintentionally siphon energy from others in order to feed their own energy.

When a psychic vampire is taking our energy we may find ourselves exceptionally tired, worn down, and irritable. We may even have weird dreams and physical symptoms.

But not to worry! There are some things we can do to strengthen ourselves and repel these energy vampires.

  1. A strong aura or energy field is our first defense. By maintaining our own energy and keeping a strong aura, we can more easily prevent our energy from being drained.
  2. Repairing or healing our aura and energy. Many things can cause “tears” in our energy field, including draining from vampires. This is why it’s important to patch up our auras and heal any spots that energy could be leaked from.
  3. Regularly “shave off” unwanted energy and cut energetic cords.
  4. Repel energy vampires with essential oils and herbs.

I recently felt like my energy was being depleted. I felt like my aura wasn’t as strong as it could be and that not only was my energy sort of leaking out of me, but I was leaving myself vulnerable to energy vampires.

I decided to create this spell/ritual to help strengthen and repair my aura while also repelling any potential vampires.

Check out the YouTube video below for a walk-through of this spell/ritual.

Items for your spell/ritual:

  • A white or black candle
  • Protection herbs
  • Athame or ritual blade
  • Selenite wand
  • Black tourmaline
  • Sage or other cleansing tool
  • Vampire spray (water, peppermint oil, rosemary oil)

21 Spiritual & Magickal Uses of Rainwater

Rainwater is such a beneficial thing to incorporate into your spiritual and magickal practices. The uses for it are almost endless. Today I want to share with you why and how to collect rain water, how to properly store and label your water, and share 21 ways you can use this water in your practice.

IMG_7528

Why Would You Want to Collect Rainwater?

Rain water has some serious energetic benefits to it. Depending on where and when we gather the rain, it can have different energetic properties. Water is a big energy conductor, so it only makes sense that it absorbs various energies around it that we can then utilize in our spiritual and magickal practices.

For instance, if you collect rain water from a lightning storm, not only does that water contain the element of water but it also contains the element of fire (from the lightning).

Depending on other factors, like the current moon phase or day of the week, can also contribute to the different energetic properties within the water.

So, by collecting the rain water and working with it’s energies, we can add more elements and properties to our daily life.

Not only can you collect rain water, but you can also collect water from streams, rivers, lakes, oceans, etc.

I do always suggest when collecting water, even the rain from your back yard, that you take a moment to offer a prayer of thanks to Mother Earth and Spirit. If collecting water from a body or source of water, you might even choose to leave an offering like a small crystal or stone.

Is Rain Water Safe?

There are some misconceptions to the safety of rain water. Really, rain water is pretty safe to consume or bathe in. There are some things to keep in mind though.

I suggest not collecting water that is falling off a building or roof as this will contaminate the water. Whatever is on that roof or building will enter into the water.

Do not collect your water from puddles or other areas that could be dirty or contaminated. This is also something to keep in mind if you’re collecting your water from a water source in nature.

If you gather your water off of trees or plant life, please be mindful of the plant. Not all plants are safe for us to ingest or put on our skin. If you’re gathering water from a plant, that plant matter could enter into the water.

I would suggest not gathering rain water (or any water for that matter) from highly polluted areas or areas of radiation (like Chernobyl).

And finally, some folks are concerned about the acidity of rain water. When they talk about the acidity of a liquid, they’re referring to anything lower than a ph of 7. Rain water typically has a ph level of 5.6 or 6. For comparison, orange juice has a ph level of 4. So in regards to acidity levels, you should be good.

How to Collect The Rain Water

The easiest way to collect rain water is to set your container out in the rain. I recommend using only glass, ceramic or wooden containers to collect your water and to store it. Metal has a lot of it’s own energetic properties and I personally feel that this interferes with the energies within the water. Plastic is pretty much just no good, and a lot of the chemicals in the plastic can seep into the rain water. Yuck.

How to Label and Store Your Water

We talked about how everything from the type of rain to location to moon phase can contribute to the unique energetic properties of the water. This is why it’s really important to label your container of rain water. Here are the things that I find helpful to include on the lable:

  • Time of day, date and day of the week
  • Moon phase and current moon sign
  • Location the rain was collected from
  • Type of rain (just rain, thunder storm, hurricane, etc)
  • The feelings the rain invoked within you (peace, clarity, self love, intuition, etc)

As for storing your water, you can keep it on your altar or in a cabinet. You may also choose to store it in the refrigerator. For longer storage, you can freeze the water.

The length of time that you can store the water before it loses it’s energetic properties varies on who you ask. I always say to use your intuition with this. If you go to use your water and it just doesn’t feel the same to you anymore, then don’t use it. Simply dispose of it outside.

The longest I hold onto rain or blessed water is roughly 30 days. Typically I try to use my water within the first week of collecting it.

21 Spiritual and Magickal Uses

And now, on to some ways to use your rain water. Really, the ways to use your water are almost endless. There are many more ways you can use this water that I haven’t included on this list. But here are 21 ways that I personally use the water or ways that I would use it.

New Orleans Roller Blend 

I’m going to get to New Orleans one way or another, sooner than later dammit. I just created this blend that will help me manifest myself to New Orleans!


Cypress 10 drops

Cypress is good for meditation to help you visualize what you desire. Cypress also grows in New Orleans with the beautiful moss hanging from it. Granted, the cypress this Oil is from isn’t the same genus as what grows in New Orleans, but still.
Myrrh 8 drops

Myrrh is a very spiritual Oil, and one of the reasons I want to go to New Orleans is for the spirituality and religion. Myrrh is also a great Oil for money and prosperity. Gotta have that cash flow to make it on my trip!

Cedarwood 3 drops

Cedarwood is helpful when creating sacred spaces, and New Orleans is definitely a sacred space. Also helpful with abundance.

….

I mixed these oils in a 10ml roller bottle topped off with fractionated coconut oil and also added in black obsidian and amethyst crystal chips.

Black obsidian to ground my dreams into reality and amethyst for spirituality and because it’s basically awesome in everything.

I also added in some dried Spanish moss. When I think of New Orleans I always envision the Spanish moss hanging from the trees.

I’ll be using this oil daily, especially during visualization. Whether it’s closing my eyes and meditating on being in New Orleans or while browsing the internet looking at New Orleans while envisioning and really feeling myself there.

You could use this technique for any trip you want to go! Simply mix in oils that resonate with the location for you!

Magickal Correspondences: The Moon

When working magick and spells or preparing for a ritual or ceremony, working with similar Correspondances can really amp up the energy of your working. In this post, I will share with you Correspondances that correlate with the moon.

The cycles of the moon play a big factor in it’s energy. While I’m a big believer that magick and ritual can be performed at any moon phase, there’s nothing wrong with waiting until the moon is in a particular phase before conducting your ceremony or spell.

  • Waxing Moon is when the moon is getting larger. This is the time after the new moon and prior to the full moon. This is a good energy for thing you want to increase in your life (think money, love, job).
  • Waning Moon is when the moon is getting smaller. After the full moon and before the new moon. This is good energy for things you want to remove from your life. Things like bad habits, or even people.
  • Full Moon is a very powerful energy. It really amplifies any workings making them stronger. This is also a good time to begin to think of things you need to release from your life.
  • New Moon energy is good for planning what you’d like to bring into your life. What do you really want to manifest?

While the moon does travel through each of the zodiac signs every couple of days, the moon is connected to the Cancer zodiac sign. When the moon is in this sign, the energy is doubly amplified.

Here are some basic Correspondances for the moon:

  • Monday
  • The element of water
  • Moonstone and selenite crystals
  • Sandalwood, jasmine and lemon essential oils
  • Psychic work
  • Feminine energy

Many blessings!

Easy Ostara Manifesting Ritual

Spring is all about new life! New endeavors and manifesting! Here’s a fun and easy ritual you can do for Ostara and the first day of spring! Even your kids can take part! 


🌸 Take an egg (a symbol of fertility..seed..manifesting) and write on it what you are going to be manifesting in the coming months. Write it in the positive, like it’s already happening. For example, I am successful…not, I will be successful. Claim that dream! 

🌸 Next, bury your egg outside (or in a pot) with seedlings or a new plant on top. And voila! Literally planting your fertility seed of manifestation!! 

🌸I personally like to up the ante with essential oils. I breathe in the aroma while I hold the egg and visualize all my goals coming into fruition. Elevation to keep those vibes HIGH, Orange for success and confidence and creativity and patchouli for prosperity and a little grounding.
