Magical Properties of Essential Oils

By Happiness & Joy, PaganismNo Comments

I love all things aromatherapy. I love burning essential oils at home. But essential oils are also often used in magic and spell casting. Here is my current list of essential oils and their magical properties:

  • Bergamot – Communication, Employment & Love.
  • Cardamon – Relieves Anxiety, Promotes Peace & Death Rites.
  • Cedarwood – Spiritual Growth, Money & Healing.
  • Cedar – Wisdom, Strength & Protection.
  • Chamomile – Calmness, Money & Cleansing.
  • Cinnamon – Magical Booster, Success, Lust & Love.
  • Citronella – Cleansing, Relaxation & Aids Sleep (small amounts).
  • Cypress – Endurance, Healing & Protection.
  • Frankincense – Peace, Death Rites & Psychic Abilities.
  • Geranium – Sleep, Blessings & Spirit Work.
  • German Blue Chamomile – Healing, Peace & Balance.
  • Grapefruit – Healing, Optimism & Positivity
  • Jasmine – Relaxation, Peace & Love.
  • Lavender – Protection, Psychic Skills & Aids Connection to the Astral Plane.
  • Lemongrass – Dissolves Obstacles and Negative Energy, Raises Energy to a Positive level & Communication.
    (Interesting sidenote: Cats don’t like the smell of lemongrass, so it is perfect to put on furniture you don’t want them to use as a scratching post.)
  • Lemon – Energy, Fresh Starts & Boosting Creativity/Magical Endevours.
  • Lime – Aura Cleansing, Activities of the Mind (such as passing exams/tests) & Loyalty.
  • Marjoram – Protection, Aids Recovery from Grief & Good Luck.

In my last post: My View on The Law of Attraction – Including Pro/Cons Lists, I discussed The Law of Attraction in great detail. Thinking about The Law of Attraction was useful in terms of me developing some wishes and goals for my life. Here they are, some may not appear to be realistic, but The Law of Attraction encourages you to think and feel big, so that’s exactly what I’ve done here:


  1. My Diabetes is in perfect control.
  2. I sleep well. I have plenty of energy.
  3. I’m healthy and happy.
  4. I relax regularly.
  5. I always have plenty of food available to me.


  1. I have millions of pounds in the bank.
  2. I am financially secure and prosperous.
  3. I have active subscriptions to Disney+, Amazon Prime, Amazon Music and Netflix.


  1. I own a home with a garage and garden.
  2. I always feel safe and love at home.
  3. I live near Rivington.
  4. My home is always clean and tidy. I have a cleaner that helps with this.


  1. I spend my days writing books, blog posts and articles, working 7am to 3pm, Monday to Wednesday (3 days a week).
  2. I spend one day a week (Thursday) doing addiction counselling.

Social / Romantic Relationships:

  1. I have a secure and happy relationship with a handsome, kind and funny man. I marry this man.
  2. My family, friends and husband are happy and supportive of me.
  3. I regularly do fun things with family, friends and my husband including: theatre trips, music gigs and comedy shows.
  4. I go on holiday twice a year, one holiday in the UK and one holiday abroad. Both holidays are enjoyable, places of beauty with lots of fun things to do.


  1. I feel connected to the universe. 
  2. All of my spells are successful.

A Candlelight Musical Extravaganza at Manchester Cathedral

By Friends & Family, Gigs & Shows, Happiness & Joy, Music & RadioNo Comments

Tonight Mum, Hien and I went to see a string quartet from String Infusion perform at Manchester Cathedral. The evening was promoted as a musical sensory experience, with two performances. One of ABBA songs and one of Whitney Houston songs. Here are some photos from the evening, click on any photo for full size image:

We had a fantastic evening. The performance was exceptional in every sense of the word.

A New Sofa

By Happiness & Joy, Home, ShoppingNo Comments

At the weekend I went sofa shopping at ScS. I bought this gorgeous and super comfortable sofa:

While the Sales Rep went to discuss my purchase with a colleague, I took off my shoes and tried out the rug. On his return, I said:

Let’s talk about the rug. – Me

After some negotiation, I bought the rug too. It is honestly the most comfortable thing I’ve ever had underneath my feet.

Whilst in recovery from Pneumonia, I’m slowly sorting, cleaning and revamping my life at home.

Now this gorgeous sofa came with a considerable price tag, so I’m not taking any chances with it. Especially when considering my cats. So I went to B&M and bought three throws (images of the patterns below) and two cushions to match:

I have to wait a few weeks for the sofa and rug to be delivered. But I’ve already chosen the perfect corner for the sofa to be placed in my living room.
