Finding Your Fortress in Times of Distress

I get a number of emails from people all over the world each day who are in "spiritual crisis" or who simply THINK that they are in a spiritual crisis. Those who know me, know exactly how tender-hearted I am. I am known for giving out a great deal of free information in order to help people help themselves and I have privately given out free products and services at my own expense to many of my customers, fans, and various seekers. However, no matter how many candles I burn; or how many positive thoughts I send out into the universe there is a limit to the amount of products and services I am able to simply give away. 

In those cases, when a person does not feel empowered to do work for themselves and would like another individual to assist them with a case I always offer the following advice. First, I advise them to pray. Simply pray for themselves from a place of thankfulness and not a place of desperation.

Next, I suggest that you go to the Crystal Silence League and submit a prayer request. Once submitted a large number of spiritual practitioners will pray especially for you and your need. 

Finally,  I suggest that you go here and read about the AIRR Pro Bono Fund, then click here to apply. And if you are in a position to help someone, then you can donate time, supplies, or funds to the program in order to help others too.

Blessings,

*ENDED* Enter for a Chance to Win a Custom Helper-Doll

Crown of Success Helper-Doll
This week you are entering for a chance to win a free custom Helper-Doll. Helper-Dolls are those dolls which represent intangible concepts such as healing, prosperity, protection, etc... and not necessarily a specific individual although in some cases they can.  They are often crafted in a color or colors which resonate with your goal and contain those herbs, roots, and/or curios that are traditionally prescribed to address your specific issue or goal.

For example, a doll for love will likely be sewn in red or pink cloth and stuffed with coriander seed, cubeb berries, and lemon grass along with a list of traits you desire in a lover.
Helper-Dolls can be made for virtually any purpose such as drawing prosperity, love, success, healing, protection, luck in gambling, creating a peaceful home, etc....Each Helper-Doll I craft is custom-made by hand according to your own need and for this reason no two will be exactly alike. 
Your Helper-Doll will be crafted in a color which is in harmony with your goal and will contain a petition / name-paper and at least 3 herbs, roots, and/or curios traditionally associated with your goal. In addition, each doll  comes with instructions for its use and deployment.

***How to Enter to Win***
  1. To enter the contest simply submit $1.00 per entry via paypal to carolinadean@gmail.com.
  2. Each dollar you submit will then constitute one (1) entry for the drawing to win. For example, $1.00 represents one entry, $5.00 represent five entries, $10.00 represents ten entries, $20.00 represents 20 entries etc....
  3. You may enter as many times as you wish.
  4. Contest ends at 6 pm on April 26 and I will announce the winner at the Carolina Dean Fan Page on Saturday, April the 27th. 
  5. When the winner is announced I will contact you via email to discuss your needs. I will perform a 4 card reading on your situation, prescribe, and construct a custom doll baby specifically for your needs.
  6. You are responsible for providing me with any personal concerns, name-papers, etc...that will go into your Helper-Doll.
  7. Once made, I will mail your Doll to you along with directions for its use and deployment. 
  8. I reserve the right to disqualify any person for any reason.

Honey-Boss Doll



The Honey-Boss doll is a doll made specifically to sweeten your boss to you so that he or she will like you and want to favor you while at the same time it contains those herbs and curios which many folks have long believed to give you the power to dominate and control other individuals. In this way, the Honey Boss is a combination of a honey-jar and a Boss-Fix all in one!

To reflect their dual nature, I often craft these dolls in a combination of pink (for sweetness) and purple (for domination and control).  Don’t worry if your sewing skills aren’t up to snuff, you can simply make your doll in either pink or purple. However, should you make your doll in pink you can include a small piece of purple cloth inside the doll or vice-versa.

The fact that this spell is crafted in the form of a doll makes it much more versatile than a simple honey-jar which requires you to burn a candle on it several times a week. The doll travels a lot easier than a honey-jar so you will more than likely be able to hide it in your purse, briefcase, locker or desk at work where it will be closer to the target and you can work it at your leisure.

To make your Honey-Boss doll you will need the following:

  • A Doll
  • Stuffing
  • Target’s Personal Concerns
  • Licorice Root
  • Whole Cloves
  • Fennel Seeds
  • Five-Finger Grass

Begin by eliminating all distractions. That means turn off the television, turn off the radio, get comfortable in your sacred space and make the doll. While crafting the doll let your thoughts focus on your boss and how you want him or her to treat you. When you have crafted your doll, stuffed it with the herbs, personal concerns, and sewn it up you will ritually name the doll.
To ritually name the doll smoke it incense, breathe life into the doll and name him or her. For example:

"As God blew the breath of life into Adam, I breathe the breath of life into this doll. I name you (NAME) and now you are (NAME). All that I do to you, I now do to (NAME)”

When you feel that you have formed a strong connection in your mind between the doll and the individual, you will then begin to talk to the doll as least once a day. Refer to the person by name as if you were actually speaking to him or her. Tell them exactly how you feel and what it is that you wish for them to say or do.

Reward the doll when it works for you by giving it a small offering. For example, if the person likes coffee you may put a small drop of coffee on the doll’s mouth.

If the individual does not respond to your commands, you may wish to punish it by withholding such treats and by sticking it through with pins. Tell the person that you are doing this because they are not obeying your commands and that only when they do as you wish will the pins be removed. When the individual responds to your spell, remove the pins and reward them with a special treat. The idea here is similar to training a dog, or small child. You want to reward good behavior and punish bad behavior.

It is very important to keep your word and remove the pins when the individual responds to your command, otherwise you may confuse the doll and it will no longer work for you or it will take longer to achieve positive results again.

Once they achieve results, some people tend to stop working the doll. However, for results to be lasting you will have to continually work your doll lest the individual revert back to his or her old negative ways. 

Blessings

My Divination Kit

Today I'll like to share my little divination kit for on the go. I carry it with me whenever I am traveling, staying over night away from home, or going anywhere where I might be expected to do a reading. As you can see from the photo below, it looks like a simple CD case because that's exactly what it is!






 A closer look reveals that it contains something OTHER than cd's, however. For example,





The little outside pocket contains a Gideon Bible that I use for doing bibliomancy, or bible-divination.





And on the inside, there's a tarot-deck, a rune-deck, a deck of playing cards, a pendulum and an amethyst crystal for scrying.



Blessings,

CONTEST ENDED --Enter for a Chance to Win a Free Custom Mojo Hand !

As some of my readers know, my car died a few weeks ago and I am trying to raise some extra money while waiting for my tax-refund that I intend to use toward  a down-payment on a new vehicle. Therefore over the next month I will be doing a new raffle each week for a different prize. 

This week you are entering for a chance to win a free custom-made mojo hand. As you may or may  not know, a mojo is the staple talisman in the Hoodoo Tradition, but it appears in other magickal traditions as well.  It is characterized as a flannel bag, usually red, containing one or more magickal items.  Although most “Southern Style” mojos are made of red flannel, some magickal practitioners favor the color symbolism employed in candle magick and will match the color of the mojo bag to their goal

What goes into a mojo bag is determined by your goal, and what your find effective or traditional to use to achieve that goal.  Generally, there are at least three items in a simple mojo and many people try to ensure that the total ingredients comes to an odd number---3,5,7,9,11,13 and never more than 13---however, this is not a hard and fast rule.

***How to Enter to Win***
  1. To enter the contest simply submit $1.00 per entry via paypal to carolinadean@gmail.com.
  2. Each dollar you submit will then constitute one (1) entry for the drawing to win. For example, $1.00 represents one entry, $5.00 represent five entries, $10.00 represents ten entries, $20.00 represents 20 entries etc....
  3. You may enter as many times as you wish.
  4. Contest ends at midnight on April 19 and I will announce the winner in the comments section below AND at the Carolina Dean Fan Page on Saturday, April the 20th. 
  5. When the winner is announced I will contact you via email to discuss your needs. I will perform a 4 card reading on your situation, prescribe, and construct a custom-made mojo hand for you.
  6. You are responsible for providing me with any personal concerns, name-papers, photographs, etc...that will go into your custom-mojo hand.
  7. Once made, I will mail your custom-mojo hand to you along with a condition oil and directions for the care and maintenance of your mojo. 
  8. I reserve the right to disqualify any person for any reason. 

Blessing,

CarolinaDean.com is Now Closed


Merry Meet friends, family, and fans....

After considerable thought, I have decided to close www.carolinadean.com after 5 long years. It was a great resource for not only myself but also for the many, many people that I met along the information superhighway during our mutual journeys. 

I created carolinadean.com five years ago out of my own need, as well as out of a need to help others--- but as my path has taken me farther and farther away from Wicca and Paganism, I have found myself maintaining and updating it less and less. This does not mean that I no longer value or respect the science and religion of Wicca but that my path has widen to include spiritual beliefs and practices outside the Wiccan Religion. Nor does it mean that I will no write about topics of interest to Wiccans, Witches, and Pagans in the future.

If you wish to continue to keep in contact with me, then please consider joining my facebook fan page or  check out my new website. If you've gone to carolinadean.com seeking information about Wicca, Witchcraft, or Paganism, then know that all the answers you are looking for are inside of you now, you just have to seek them out. If you need a little help, then please refer to  this blog for past entries and use the search function liberally.  

The carolinadean.com home-page will remain up and running until the domain runs out on at which time I hope some unscrupulous person does not grab it up and attempt to capitalize on my name----which is the main reason I am posting this blog now.

Other changes you'll notice include that I have changed the name of this blog from Sex, Magick, and the City to Receipt Book of Carolina Dean in accordance with my efforts to merge all of my sites together under my Carolina Conjure brand. Along with this name change comes a new URL address http://receipt-book.blogspot.com/ so please update your bookmarks accordingly.

Blessings to you and yours along your journey and Merry Part (until me Merry Meet Again),

Prayer For a Husband

Below is a prayer that came to be spontaneously while working at the love altar recently. It is based on the 23rd Psalm. Though it is written to attract a male lover / husband / long-term relationship it may easily be used for a wife as well.

The prayer speaks of removing obstacles in one's path as well as drawing your desired lover to you and the union being blessed by God... and therefore can be used at any time for this purpose. 

It is as follows:


"The Lord is my matchmaker; I shall not want for love. He restoreth my nature. He leadeth me unto the path of true-love for his name's sake.

He empowers me to lay waste to obstacles in my path that I may stand at my husband’s side. Thou preparest a wedding-feast before us in the presence of our enemies: thou anointest our heads with blessing oil; our loving-cup runneth over.

Yea, though I live in a world of evil men who would destroy me, I will fear no evil: for my husband is with me; his strength and acceptance they comfort me. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. Amen"
