Free Candle Spells | Reprint – “How to Write the Blues” Tutorial

Going over some of my oldest posts this morning and came across this. Cannot believe that it has been almost 4 years since I began the Free Candle Spells blog website. This is guaranteed to bring laughter to your heart. You know it is true, you cannot sing about the ‘blues’ if you haven’t lived through trials and tribulations. Enjoy! – Jacqueline Courtesy of John in Baton Rouge. Thanks John!   1. Most Blues begin, “Woke up this morning…” 2. “I got a good woman” is a bad way to begin the Blues, ‘less you stick something nasty in the next line like, “I got a good woman, with the meanest face in town.” 3. The Blues is simple. After you get the first line right, repeat it. Then find something that rhymes…sort of: “Got a good woman with the meanest face in town. Yes, I got a good woman with the meanest face in town. Got teeth like Margaret Thatcher, and she weigh 500 pound.” 4. The Blues is not about choice. You stuck in a ditch, you stuck in a ditch – ain’t no way out. 5. Blues cars: Chevys, Fords, Cadillacs and broken-down trucks. Blues don’t travel in Volvos, BMWs, or Sport Utility Vehicles. Most Blues transportation is a Greyhound bus or a southbound train. Jet aircraft an’ state-sponsored motor pools ain’t even in the runnin’. Walkin’ plays a major part in the blues lifestyle. So does fixin’ to die. 6. Teenagers can’t sing the Blues. They ain’t fixin’ to die yet. Adults sing the Blues. In Blues, “adulthood” means being old enough to get the electric chair if you shoot a man in Memphis. 7. Blues can take place in New York City, but not in Hawaii or any place in Canada. Hard times in Minneapolis or Seattle is probably just clinical depression. Chicago, St. Louis, and Kansas City are still the best places to have the Blues. You cannot have the blues in any place that don’t get rain. 8. A man with male pattern baldness ain’t the blues. A woman with male pattern baldness is. Breaking your leg cause you skiing is not the blues. Breaking your leg ’cause a alligator be chompin’ on it is. 9. You can’t have no Blues in a office or a shopping mall. The lighting is wrong. Go outside to the parking lot or sit by the dumpster. 10. Good places for the Blues: a. highway b. jailhouse c. empty bed d. bottom of a whiskey glass Bad places: a. Dillard’s b. gallery openings c. Ivy League institutions d. golf courses 11. No one will believe it’s the Blues if you wear a suit, ‘less you happen to be a old ethnic person, and you sleep in it. 12. Do you have the right to sing the Blues? Yes, if: a. you older than dirt b. you blind c. you shot a man in Memphis d. you can’t be satisfied No, if: a. you have all your teeth b. you were once blind but now can see c. the man in Memphis lived d. you have a 401K or trust fund 13. Blues is not a matter of color. It’s a matter of bad luck. Tiger Woods cannot sing the blues. Sonny Liston could. Ugly white people also got a leg up on the blues. 14. If you ask for water and your darlin’ give you gasoline, it’s the Blues. Other acceptable Blues beverages are: a. cheap wine b. whiskey or bourbon c. muddy water d. nasty black coffee The following are NOT Blues beverages: a. Perrier b. Chardonnay c. Snapple d. Slim Fast 15. If death...

Free Candle Spells | Why Your Love Candle Spell Isn’t Working Pt. 3

This is the third in a three part series in investigating why your love candle spell isn’t working. To read part one, click the blue words here, “Free Candle Spells | Why Your Love Candle Spell Isn’t Working Pt. 1”. To read the second part of this series, click here to read, “Free Candle Spells | Why Your Love Candle Spell Isn’t Working Pt. 2”. So we have covered some reasons that your candle spell wasn’t working with problems that may have existed before you even considered putting flame to a wick. The second part delved into cheap changing of products and the possibility of being a victim of a rip-off artist. Part three rounds up some more things to consider even after you have eliminated the problems brought up in Parts 1 and 2. This last section focuses on you and your actions in regards to the candle spell. What you do and say will help determine the outcome of the candle spell, and that is why many will tell you to plan, prepare, revise, research and revisit the petition papers, herbs, oils and candles you use. 7. ) Giving vague or accurate information for the reader/spellworker to properly prepare a candle spell. Oh this is a doozy. In the near past, I had someone who contacted me about a candle spell they were considering. Theirs was a ‘Double Big Mac with extra Cheese” – type of issue. I strongly suggest a reading – not only to determine if the work was validated but if I was the ‘One’ who should be performing this spell (something I do ask in my readings with a client). I also ask if the outcomes will be successful because I do not want to have a client “throw good money to the bad” if the outcome will not be what they wanted. Remember – we are petitioning the Higher Power for our best outcome – and if the Almighty does not want the petition to come to its’ fruition, it won’t, plain and simple. So I do the reading for the person, and in it I find multi layers of items that are loosely related, but in the end, not best for the client. The client reveals to me some candle spells that they are doing, substituting one thing for the other (like candles), and it turns out a big mess. I suggest to the client to bite it off like a Big Mac, because you cannot eat one in one bite. I tell them to first determine what is most important to work on, then systematically do candle work for each item. Comes to find out, there is even MORE issues, and the slip up was their e-mails asking for yet more information and it all had to be done be the end of the month! Readers, be honest with your rootworker/spiritualworker. We cannot do the best for you if you are withholding pertenient information and we use the ‘wrong’ oil, candle or herb. It sets up a situation that you will not be happy with the results and then you’ll bad mouth your worker all over town. We all need to Trust. 8. ) You are fixated or obsessed over the candle spell as it works or the outcome. – One of the most saddest things is when someone has contacted me, waited on considering a candle spell, and then when faced with either a worst situation or they come up against time limits, they are bombarding me with calls and e-mails. Doing research is fine and I encourage it, both for the one doing the spell or reading for you,...

Free Candle Spells | Why Your Love Candle Spell Isn’t Working Pt. 2

We have already explored the possible reasons of why your love spell is not working with some pre-ritual problems that may forewarn of disastrous results. You can read this on the first part of this series titled, “Free Candle Spells | Why Your Love Candle Spell Isn’t Working Pt. 1 (click on blue words to go to article). The second part of this three part series will talk about things that you may be doing that are thwarting your success in your love candle ritual. 1. You are doubtful of the power of candle spell magic and/or you do not have confidence in your own power. – Damn that brain! It keeps you from attaining what you want. You can talk your way right into a funk so low that even Satan needs to send a search party. All jokes aside, you may be thwarting your own success by doing something as little as saying, “I HOPE this candle will bring to me (insert name here)” or “Please let me and (name our target here) get together/back together/fall in love”. URRRRT….NO! One of the best ways to negate any positivity in candle burning is wishing and hoping something will happen. It is better that you wait until you either had a good cuppa joe or feel raging hormones before you light a candle with a POSITIVE MIND. Examples of statements that are truly positive are something like “With the lighting of this candle, I FIRMLY BELIEVE that (insert name here) and I will become a couple in a long lasting and happy relationship that will last forever” or “I KNOW that with the lighting of this candle, I WILL be the next girlfriend/lover/wife of (insert name here”. See how much more affirmative and positive those two statements are? 2. You are skimping on ritual and product or editing the length of ritual – When you read a good spell that just ‘clicks’ with you or if you are under a root workers suggestion to do something, do not buy or obtain items because you believe they can stand in for the real thing  ‘in a pinch’. I have had people ask me if they could use a half burned fragrance candle that is PINK like I suggested, but they don’t want to let it ‘go to waste’ so they want to substitute it for a new candle. Look, that candle that was being considered for substitution was meant to cover odors in the bathroom – why would you want to now suggest to use it for a love spell (unless you want your love affair to go down the toilet, right?). The original purchase of the candle was NOT for magic, but clearing the room of nasty odors. Don’t be cheap and go get a fresh, new candle. Also, if you are to do something for X amount of nights, don’t cheat yourself by figuring that you do not need to do the prayer or ritual every day/night. The Saints do not care if you are bone tired, just five minutes of meditation or prayer will do the trick. Heck, even when I was running out the door one morning, I paused and extended my right hand, saying to the candle, “You know my intentions, I just got to not be late for work!”. I backed it up with a wee bit more time in the evening to make sure I was applying the time. 3. You are the victim of a ‘rip off’ artist – They are out there, and more come out of the woodwork when life gets tough. Each spiritual worker, root worker or spell caster...

Free Candle Spells | Why Your Love Candle Spell Isn’t Working – Pt. 1

I have recently seen a pattern in regards to the line of questioning that I am getting in my e-mails regarding love spells. It seems that there are those who are not happy with the outcome or how long it is taking. I thought I would write an article to address some issues or situations that you may be having or are seeing with candle spell work. This is part 1 of a 3 part series that I am writing to address issues in failed love candle spells. Here is the scenario; you met a guy and you two are really hitting it off. You want to ‘turn it up’, meaning you want to make the two of you get closer. You choose to find a candle spell or you visit the botanica, candle shop or a spiritual worker to do the work for you. It has been some time, not terribly long, but you are not seeing the results you want. Examine these reasons why the love candle spell may not be working and see if any of them sounds familiar. 1. Magic is not “Guaranteed” – Pure and simple. Magic, candles, incantations or even prayers, are the infusion of wishes, desires and hopes that you are releasing into the ethers of the Universe. I see clients all the time who have gone from one reader to a psychic to a spiritual worker, all for naught, because each one had done work for the person/client and it did not turn out the way it was intended or not at all. The Internet is chock full of websites promising, even assuring the reader that their spells ar “100% Guaranteed”.Truth. If it is not meant to Be, then the Almighty will not allow it to happen. The girl or guy might be the most handsome/beautiful/gorgeous body Heaven sent down, but if their is evil intent afoot in the Future and the Higher Power that resides in the clouds doesn’t want you to experience it, then no amount of candles will make It happen. You have to ask, pray, meditate or incant what you desire, but with the understanding of this: It Might Not Happen Despite How Many Candles You Burn. ‘ Nuff said! 2. You have unrealistic goals – This falls into the “George Clooney or (insert movie/rock star’s name here)” section. There is just some circles that you and your target will circulate in and your paths will NOT cross. Another scenario is the “I’ll wait forever for you, Eddie!” syndrome, despite Eddie being married with 4 kids and a mortgage that would make Donald Trump cringe. Really? You want to become ‘Instant Step-Mom?’. Brave girl. The same goes for men as well; be careful what you wish for….. 3. There are underlying issues, problems and situations to take into consideration (further enhancing the above) – OK, so Eddie is really and truly is “the One”. He’s got 4 kids, a mortgage, and a wife that is taking him to the cleaners. Take a moment and think 5 years down the road – are you planning to be the major ‘breadwinner’ in your relationship with Eddie because three quarters of his check goes to HER? This is an example of what could happen once you are fully entrenched into a relationship. If she/he is cheating now, using now, lying now, then it is bound to happen later as well. Do not try to “fix” another person (which is a great majority of concerns lately). They are what or who they are; love them with all their faults or move on. Look for Part 2 in a few days regarding...
