Harnessing the Power of Jasmine
The flower of attraction is a common element in promoting spiritual love and desire. Jasmine’s heady fragrance evokes feelings of passion and is the perfect accompaniment in a love-drawing spell. Its calming and sensuous properties affect the mind, stirring sensuality and opening partners up to the divine beauty all around.
When looking to attract the attention of one you desire, start by preparing your altar. Calm your mind, clear your space of any distractions and lay a red handkerchief on your altar. Place a Dominator/Martha Dominadora Candle and some Jasmine incense on the handkerchief. Anoint the candle with Jasmine oil. Write the name of your intended partner on a piece of paper. Place the paper under the candle. Focus your intentions on the one you long for and light the candle and incense.
As your candle burns, breathe out deeply, removing any negative thoughts from your mind. Breathe in and imagine positive energy flowing throughout your body.
If you are trying to get someone that you love to love you back, a ritual bath can help. The Jasmine flower is one of the most aphrodisiacal essences on earth and bathing in its petals will make you smell irresistible. Prepare your ritual bath by gathering the items you will need, including an Attraction/Love Blessed Pillar Candle, Jasmine Flowers, Orris Root and Rose Petals. Fill your tub with water. Once full, add the Jasmine, Orris Root and Rose petals to the bath. Allow the flowers to circulate through the water. Light the candle and concentrate on the beautiful glow of its flame. Soak in the bath for 15 to 20 minutes, envisioning a romantic encounter between you and the one you desire. After you have finished bathing, do not towel dry. Allow yourself time to air dry, ensuring that the powerful aroma remains on you for the entire day.

There are times in life when every day seems cursed. When everything you touch breaks and everything you say comes out wrong. When the simplest task becomes a complicated mess and you feel like you want to hide in bed with the covers pulled over your head. Every one of us has experienced stretches like this. The key to breaking this string of bad luck is to open your road and clear your path. Clearing away the obstacles that are blocking you from success will help you more forward and find prosperity.
Opening Your Road
Spiritual roadblocks are just as frustrating and incapacitating as actual barriers on a highway. Imagine your positive energy being forced to a standstill by negative forces. As that energy is stopped, bad luck, legal problems, illnesses and relationship problems can all build up and spiral into a giant storm of negativity. Emotional blockages can be paralyzing and difficult to break free from.
Luckily, there are steps that any person can take to turn their luck around and remove those negative obstacles from their path. The route towards a new job or a new relationship is in your hands. Road opening requires focus and strength of mind. A part of you must have the purpose and desire to change your circumstances for the better. A simple way to begin the process of opening your road is by lighting an Open Road/Elegua or Open Road Custom Big Al Candle. Candles create a calming atmosphere that can help to center your intentions. Anoint your candle with Open Road oil and repeat the following prayer:
I invoke the sublime influence of the eternal father to obtain success in all the subjects of my life and to smooth all difficulties that are in my way. I invoke the aid of the Holy Spirit, so that my house prospers and my company and my person receive a message of good luck, sent by the divine providence. Oh great hidden power, I implore your supreme majesty so that you separate me from danger, at the precise moment, that my way is illuminated by the light of fortune. I shall receive the infinite blessing of the sky. I believe in God all powerful Father, Amen.
A spiritual bath is another way to clear your life’s path. Prepare your bath by filling your tub with water and emptying the contents of Open Road Bath & Floor Wash or Deliverance Bath & Floor Wash into the water. Soak in the tub for at least 15 minutes while concentrating on the areas of your life that need improving. After you have finished soaking, stand up in the tub. Pour the herbal water over your head to cleanse away any obstacles. These baths should be repeated once a day for 7 days. Perform your first bath ritual on a Monday and repeat until Sunday to open up new opportunities in your life and create a smoother path for yourself.
