I am back.
A bit worse for wear and still not completely recovered but I am back. The pneumonia has aggravated my heart condition, so I do need to take serious care of myself.
I do have to thank my niece whose love and unselfish caring to make sure I do get better has been the instrument towards my healing. She helped take a tremendous worry off of my children's shoulders.
Just as I know the prayers from my family and friends and my friends who read my blog have also helped me get much better.
When one get's older and even when you're young, a person does need an advocate who can see things far more clearly than the person who is ill, and my niece has been that as well as in consultation with my children.
And she has taken it a step further, she is retired from her job. Her children are grown, she is a widow, and she gave up her apartment to move in with me in my home to make sure I will stay well.
And I cannot argue with that, as a matter of fact she is the only one who was in the perfect position to become my caregiver, well I can do things myself but I'm not as spry as I use to be, so I consider this a blessing.
Fortunately my children have no problem with the arrangements as their jobs have forced them to live some distance from me and although they do frequently visit me, they are wise enough to see that it's the best arrangement.
Now on to the Honey Jar Spell~~~~
Honey jars are also called Sweetening jars, they are a type of jar or bottle spell that is used to sweeten someone up to you, sweeten their mind to you, become nicer, loving, willing, or offer kindness to you.
In some situations they are used to sweeten the situation that you maybe in such as a court or legal case, or to bring money to you. Now those spells to be used for court or legal cases in which you want the judge and lawyers to take your side over the opponent’s side are a very good aid.
You can use a jar spell to get a new job, to sweeten your boss, or get accepted in a new program in college.
They are simple jar spells; but you have to remember they can be slow to start working for you. Especially if a difficult situation has been going for a long time. Once they get going then it a matter of keeping them hot with continuous burning of candles on top of the jar, this is quite favorable in pressing cases.
The beauty of these little jars is that you can work one jar for months or even a year later successfully. And when you are finished with the jar, such as getting the job, or winning the case then give it a proper burial in the front yard in an easterly direction, or if you don’t have a yard then in a potted plant.
These jar spells can be used to reconcile with a lover, friend, or family member. You can use them to sweeten a new guy or gal towards you. But you also have to remember you cannot interfere with someone’s karmic path either, so in using these spells you have to give very serious consideration.
Sometimes a honey or sweetening jar or bottle spell (yes I did say bottle) can be used to make a home life very happy and cozy. I have one friend who did use a honey jar spell, but instead of a jar she used a bottle.
Have you ever seen those bottles with a round bottom with wicker around it and a candle stuck in the neck of the bottle and it would melt and run down the bottle like in those Italian type restaurants from the 1930 to 1950’s very cliché looking, but my friend who is Italian keeps one burning all the time on the family dinning room table to prevent accidents she keeps a large Hurricane glass shade around it to prevent fires and has it sitting on an old plate to catch the excess wax, the color of the candles she burns different color candles alternating between blue, pink and green for a peaceful home, love and money.
Her home has never been without money, has always been peaceful no fighting, and love just radiates throughout the place. She told me many years ago she did a honey spell for those same things, but first she started with love because she was having problems with her then new husband, then she burned a green candle for him to have a good job and money would come in, and then blue so the home would be peaceful and loving, she put all of that into her jar and then by burning the candles one at a time that would happen and ever since then she has alternated the candles and it has been going for over 40 years, when she was in the hospital she had her daughters make sure the candles were lit and only in those colors.
And it will most likely continue until the day she dies, she told her daughters about the bottle and the candles and they have done the same thing as well so they understand.
So now most of the time when someone wants to do a Honey or sweetening jar it is most always for love especially to bring a love one back. The spell is easy but it is also a bit difficult as well.
Now you can use maple syrup, karo syrup, brown sugars, or white sugars instead of honey, but the best kind of honey is local honey from a farmers market I feel that local honey is more potent and pure verses watered down imported honey that is sold in supermarkets.
Your jar should be glass and have a metal lid, you will be burning candles on top and a plastic lid will melt as well as being dangerous.
The type of candle that goes on top is not important as much as what goes on the candle and inside of the jar. Tea lights, vigil lights, tapers, pillars, are all good choices depending on your style and the kind of work you are doing as well as the size of the lid of your jar.
Choose the appropriate color for your working, or if you live in an area where resources are limited, use white candles, the whole idea is to get the energy going and the flame of the candle is the kick off so to speak.
Petition papers, photos, personal items from the target and yourself go inside of the jar. If you do not have personal items with their DNA, such as a strip of tissue, cotton tip, clothing, etc. with bodily fluids on them, then use a photo of them. If you don’t have that then you have to be clever to get one, cell phones have cameras on them, or if they are on Face Book you can “capture” a picture of them, but something with their DNA is always best, even a used paper napkin from a bar-b-que.
And then a 3 x 3 square of brown paper with the edges neatly torn, not cut with scissors, (scissors in hoodoo represent cutting something out of your life). Write the Full name of the person you want to reconcile with, first middle and last (if you know the middle name that helps) write it on the brown paper square in pencil and odd number of times (3, 5, 7, 9) one line under the other like this:
(I did it three times just to show you how it looks but 7 times is best)
Turn the paper ¼ of a turn to the right. Write your full name the same number of times one line under the next, just like you did with their name, ON TOP of their name. It should look like a grid.
In the next step turn your paper right side up how you started their name and with a red ink pen around the outside of the names in a complete circle WITHOUT lifting your pen, in cursive writing, write out a command that matches the type of spell work you are doing, such as returntomereturntomereturntome.
Be very careful this has to be one continuous word , DO NOT cross the t’s or dot the i’s until you have completed this circle around the names and joining the last letter of the last word to the first letter of the first word. THEN you can lift the pen to cross t’s and dot i’s. If you lift the pen too early before finishing the circle you will have to start a new petition paper all over again----This is the hard part because it is instinctive to lift the pen to want to cross “t’s and dot “I’s” so remember keep that pen to paper until the circle is complete. Take your time to do this, do not rush.
Next, anoint the paper with the appropriate oil or oils for love, just a dab will do. Sprinkle the hoodoo love powder in the paper, add the items you were able to get or the photograph and some herbs to the center, just enough though so the paper will close up, if you find the paper to be too small make a larger squared paper.
Speak your intention out loud and then fold the paper towards you in half, turn the paper, and fold again towards you, turn and fold a third time towards you. Spoon out some honey and eat it and chant “so and so’s heart and mind will be as sweet to me as this honey is to my mouth”
Put your petition paper in the honey jar, put in the herbs, powders, or curios into the jar pour in the honey and close the lid.
Get a colored candle appropriate to the work, pink for love, red for passions but white will do if you can’t find those, put a few drops of oil on the candle and stroke the candle towards you covering the entire candle, use some of the hoodoo powder to sprinkle the candle.
The oils to use to anoint the petition paper and the candle can be a love oil like Adam and Eve oil, Fires of Love oil, Reconciliation love oil, Return to Me oil depending upon the situation.
The type of hoodoo power should be the same as the oils.
The herbs can be any one of these but it must be an odd number with the Honey or sweetening syrup as number 1
So use any odd number of combination of the follow herbs according to your intentions:
Lovage Lucky in love and sexual passion
Rose buds promotes loving conditions
Lavender promotes luck in love affairs of married couples and love affairs of same sex partners
Balm of Gilead heals the heart and emotions
Ginger spices of a love life
Damiana to draw in a lover close and to spice of a love affair
Deer’s tongue leaf to speak with kindness, love, and passion
Cubeb berries to increase passion or draw in a new lover
Catnip to attract and draw in someone close or follow you
Violet promotes luck in love from increasing passion, drawing a lover closer, and healing a old heartbreak
And two load stones male and female two Matching lodestones that you will name as you and your desired one, these are male and female matched pairs taking into account same sex relationships you can substitute male/male or female/female stones.
Just remember it does not have to be all these herb just those that would apply to your situation but it should be an odd number such as for example:
Balm of Gilead
But the first one should always be the sweetener Honey.
The load stones and some of these herbs can be found in a good metaphysical shop.
Once you have filled the container with prayer/petition papers, herbs, personal items, etc. close the lid, shake and swirl the jar or bottle, heat it up by melting wax over the top and light your candle on it. Some folks will heat that jar up on the stove then burn candles on it be careful so it doesn’t explode.
After you have anointed the candle light the bottom of the candle while holding it over the jar to drip some wax on the lid of the jar and stick the candle on top of the lid in the wax drippings so it will adhere to the surface.
Focus, visualize, and speak the intention as you Burn the candle completely down, the next day repeat the candle process.
Do this for 7 consecutive days to jump start the energy of the honey jar, heating up the energy. After the first week, you can move it down to three times a week for the next 3-6 weeks, once the energy is flowing nicely maintain the energy that is flowing by speaking, focusing and visualizing your intention to once a week.
IF you need to heat up the honey jar to get the energy flowing quicker, go back to three times a week.
The results could start slowly; more times it will start slow, but pay attention to them. Like any spell, be patient, the spells aren’t a quick fix, magick is a lifestyle, a new way of seeing the universe, a new way of working in your universe.
Don’t lust after a result, the result might come to you in a way that is unfamiliar Believe in yourself, believe in your spirits, and believe in your universe.
More people fail at attempts to magick because they give up too soon before they see real results, because they either doubted the work would happen OR they expected a certain sign from the universe and didn’t give it enough time to manifest, so that is their own fault do to their own unrealistic expectations or wanting it now. It doesn’t work that way.
Now about the wax that will be dripping over the jar, after you have done it then set the jar inside of a bowl or large plate to catch the wax run over from candles.
Over time when the plate or bowl becomes full of wax you will take the excess wax and wrap it up in a brown paper bag and bury either in the yard, under a tree, or at a crossroads. Thank the tree, or crossroads, pay the crossroads or tree with some coins such as 3 pennies.
Sometimes, the buildup of wax on the jar will keep a wick burning too long, causing the honey inside to be too hot and seep out of the jar, so make sure to periodically check the size of the wick and trim it.
Sometimes it’s unavoidable though, and you will get some seeping honey from your jar, you should change your jar to a better fitted lid on it, and continue working the jar.
For Money Spells, Legal cases etc. the process is the same but the oils and herbs and powders are different as well as the color of the candle Green for Money for example, check my color candle list for other situations. But always use honey or a sweetener as your first ingredient.
And remember you are burning candles, if you have pets or young children put the jar and candle in a safe place away from anything flammable and away from curious children and pets, if possible get one of those hurricane lamp shades, it looks like an oversize oil lamp glass shade, put this over the jar and candle and make sure nothing touches it, Cats are notoriously curious creatures as well as little children, so especially at night be careful
Blessings to all of you and may 2016 be sweet, loving and prosperous, Ms. Q
