HealingMagic JulyMoney represents our relationship with our ability to give and receive energy. Money can be considered the gauge that measures our conscious awareness of how energy flows. Here is where our opportunity to heal our relationship with money lies.


It’s through personal evolution that we can change the way our life works.

I teach this in my book Healers Almanac and Jacki and I echo it in our book DIY Akashic Wisdom. In fact, personal evolution is spoken about throughout many spiritual teachings. The idea that we can influence the quality of our life with our thoughts and will has become so integrated in our culture that I’m seeing it applied in just about all levels of business and advertising. Yes, marketing has grabbed this concept and run with it. As we change, the world around us changes too, eventually.

What we focus on grows; we create our own reality; like attracts like; you catch more flies with honey, and on and on it goes. One thing all these clichés have in common is us and our awareness of the quality of our energy. We are the lynch pin in the details of our life and a critical part of the co-creation concept.

This is the magical part of healing. Knowing the alchemical secrets of how energy works will give us more control over our destiny and quality of our life. Karma is not a bitch, because bitches are unreasonable and don’t give options. Karma is filled with options and we need to pick one to keep the energy flowing. Flowing energy is what abundance looks like.

What I’ve learned as a student and practitioner of Reiki and Pranic Healing is that disease in our bodies and dysfunction in our lives happens wherever the energy is stuck, stagnant, and congested in our chakras and auras. When we take the time to clear old stuck energy, we become healthier and “luck” comes our way.

How magnificent it that? What is happening is that our energy is flowing in and out, feeding our physical body, our minds, and our emotions. This constant cycling of vibrant fresh energy is what keeps us healthy, alert and full of joy. Anything that prevents us from having this powerful exchange with the universe is what needs to be healed. It reduces our connection to life force and causes us to lose our ability to create and manifest abundance, whether in health or wealth. How and what is blocking the energy will tell us where our body or life will become atrophied. It’s a basic and simple perspective, but a great place to start when taking on healing your relationship with abundance.

If we still lived in a barter system, we would not be so worried about how much money we had. We’d be more concerned about what skills we had, or how healthy and strong we were, or how many chickens we had to trade. Today our survival and worth is tied up in money and so it goes, money has become as important as the air we breathe.

Healing our relationship with money is the same as healing our relationship with our self. The secret is to find where we are clogged and why, then forgive and let it go. Today’s candle ritual will help us do just that.

You will need a Healing Blessed Herbal Candle, an Emotional Balance Blessed Herbal Candle, and a Needed Change Blessed Herbal Candle. It will take roughly an hour to complete this ritual and you can certainly do it as often as you like.

We start with the Needed Changes Blessed Herbal Candle. Take all the packaging off and write into the wax your financial goal. It could be the salary you need or the windfall you’d like. You don’t have to limit yourself to cash; maybe your financial goal revolves around something more sustaining like more ideal clients or better producing fruit trees. It’s possible you need fresh new ideas or improvement on one you’re working on right now. After scribing the candle, set it in a candle holder.

Now, on a piece of paper write down the thoughts and feelings that come up when you think about your financial situation. Note where you feel it in your body. Observe the words you choose. Are they your normal words or do they sound like they came from beyond you, from someone else’s life? What are your emotional reactions? How do you feel? Does pain or discomfort in your body come to your attention? Everything is a clue to where your energy is stuck and why. If you can’t relate to some of your thoughts and feelings investigate your family tree. You may be mirroring something that happened to an ancestor. Refer to the book DIY Akashic Wisdom and legacy work.

Fold up the piece of paper and place it under the Emotional Balance Blessed Herbal Candle. Remove all the packaging and light the candle. Sit at least five feet from the candle. Relax and let yourself go into meditation. In your imagination watch as all the words on the piece of paper flow from the paper, up the candle, and into the flame to be transformed into smoke and absorbed by the air. Turn your attention to yourself and imagine the congested energy from your mind, emotions, and physical body doing the same thing. Allow the energy flow up and out of your chakras, aura, and body dissipate into the flame. When you feel this is done, blow out the candle, and open a window to let the stagnant energy out into the world.

After a few minutes of air exchange, close the window, and remove the packaging and light the Healing Blessed Herbal and Needed Changes Blessed Herbal candles. Go back into meditation and allow yourself to be filled with healing light, it’s often white, violet or gold. Accept this healing energy and affirm that you let go completely and permanently everything that blocks your abundance; especially anything you are not personally responsible for. If you are needing to forgive, do that and again completely let go. You may need to call upon Archangel Michael to cut cords between you and another person. When you feel that is done, turn your focus to the Needed Changes candle and allow yourself to be filled with the energy of what you wrote in the wax. Take as long as you need. When you feel complete blow out the two candles, and be grateful for the healing from the holy ones, the archangels, healing angels and your personal guides. After your ritual, take a salt bath and relax.
