Light workers, people who work with the Light use many ancient tools in their spiritual work. I realise that some people are nervous when they hear people talk of Tarot cards, crystal skulls, wands and cauldrons. But with the increased interest in watching films and programs about magic, people now are more accepting of the unusual. On this page I have included a few items which might be of interest.
The Bell - clear & increase energy at the
beginning or end of a ritual.
sweeping energy & spiritual barrier keeping negativity away.
-Different colours used for variety of affirmation rituals/blessings.
for mixing herbs & burning incense.
Crystals and Gems -
help with love, abundance and protection.
Herbs, dried plants and spices - Used dry as potpourri or sometimes burnt. Various combinations of herbs, plants and
spices that give perfume to aid your intention.
Incense - Same
as herbs, incense are used for cleansing, clearing and creating a calming
Shadows - A personal journal to record your experiences,
thoughts, feelings and favourite blessings.
Sea Salt - For
Statues - Any
objects that give you a focal point for spiritual purpose.
Wands - For
projecting your energies to help yourself and others.
Yes I do own a broomstick it is placed next to the fireplace on the right, to help protect the void of the chimney, a 'favouirte' place for lower energy to collect.
There is also a statue of Archangel Michael, an amethyst cluster within the hands and my faithful Knights Templar sword on the left of the fireplace.
Book of Shadows
Book of Shadows is a journal where witches record
spells, instructions, dreams and meditation messages. Each book is personal to
the witch or mystic so is often burnt on her / his death. The book of shadows
is a sacred tool and its name refers to secrets which are not to be revealed to
It is thought
disrespectful to use a computer or use cello tape to stick things in the book.
Witches write in their own hand and draw diagrams or pictures. The book should
also be kept closed when not in use to keep its contents secret from prying
It is recommended
to bless the book of shadows every few weeks or when you feel its energy needs
replenishing, this keeps the book healthy.
To add even more
energy and personalise your book would be to make your own.

My altar has our wedding photo, Monty my horse, Goddess Isis to help with business, crystal skulls (spiritual guidance) & rose quartz wands. Also a large white feather (symbol of Pegasus) behind the photo of my and Monty.
Many people have a natural altar in their homes without realising it, their mantle piece, dressing table, chest of drawers where they have placed family photos, favourite objects and mementos.
If you wish to do a Mystic altar for healing, affirmation & spell manifesting this is what I suggest :-
Alter cloth – purple,
gold, silver, white (NOT Black)
(on left) intuitive, spiritual – candle or object.
Masters -Quan Yin, Lady Nada.
(on right) Logical/physical - candle or object.
Masters – Kuthumi, Sananda.
Centre or Middle –
Affirmation/ intention to give healing or help. Your Book of Shadows (personal
Bell – ring
to cleanse alter of negative energy.
Cauldron – burn
incense/ herbs to send intention.
Water - chalice or bowl of water, sea shell or crystals.
Earth - stones,
plants, leaves, flowers, salt or soil.
Fire - a candle, incense.
Air – boline (curved knife), wand, feather or incense.
Other Objects - which are special to you.
My wand which I made from a branch that had fallen off a tree. If you cut (never break) a branch off a living tree you respect the tree by leaving some water or flowers as a thank you. secure with wire or glue a quartz crystal to give extra power to your wand.
Mystic wands Mystic wands are often made of wood so are only for person. The wand can easily pick up sad or low energy if the person holding it feels emotional, so it is best to keep for yourself only.
Wands can be used to ground a person by pointing the end of the wand to the floor to pull earth energy towards you.
The wand can be used to place protective shield around you, by circling the wand once around you, do not point directly at you for long periods as this may create a weakness.
Wands are often used to help the person connect to nature and meditate by placing the wand on your chest or lap facing downwards or away from you.
Wand Aura Scan
Please note this is for experienced crystal healers or advanced Mystic users.
Your wand is a versatile Mystic tool
which have many uses, one of these is using its laser energy to ‘operate’ on
the auric field. You can use your wand to scan the aura on your shoulders, back
and front areas to find any dark lower energies which will be weakening you.
Imagine your wand is an extension of your arm so work with it intuitively.
is what it might feel like:
moves too quickly – indicates a hole
drags slowly – indicates negative
energy, blockage or lump (psychic attack).
feels heavy – attachment, lizard or
Wand Aura Strengthen
Use wand to repair, remove or replenish
the damaged auric field energy. Allow your wand to indicate what it wants to
do. If you feel your wand wants to pause, spiral or flick then do so. A general
indication of what your wand might do is:
Hole or weakness – wand PAUSE by beaming energy into
area to replenish it.
Negative residue energy, blockage or
lump (psychic attack) –
wand PULL or DRAG then FLICK waste energy to floor.
Attachment, or etheric cord – wand will SPIRAL to create mini
vortex to pull & remove, then flick to floor & blow white light on
Ground & protect yourself again afterwards and drink water or squash to help detox.
Cauldron In ancient times it was used for cooking
food or healing potions. The cauldron is a symbol of the Goddess, femininity
and of rebirth, as it was in ancient British Celtic religion, and is therefore
sacred to the Goddess. The cauldron is the womb in which life begins.
day witches often use the cauldron to burn incense or herbs by placing an incense charcoal in the bottom, and sprinkle the herbs
and powders onto it. I suggest placing sand or cat litter (clean of course) in
the bottom so incense sticks can stand up.
The cauldron also represents water and when filled with water can be used for gazingi into for images or ideas
The Celtic Goddess Cerridwen possessed a cauldron of immortality and inspiration.
Celtic legend also tells of a cauldron used by warring armies, in which dead
warriors could be placed and returned to life, although lacking the power of
speech and no soul (like golem). These warriors could go back into battle until
they were killed again.
Irish mythology, Tir-Na-Nog (Land of the Dead or Otherworld) was presided over by a witch and her
cauldron, to which all life returns to await rebirth.
Crystal Skulls I have loads of crystal skulls that have chosen me to be their guardian, we never own a skull because when we pass over it will find a new guardian. Crystal skulls have been around for thousand of years, it is believed they were first used in Atlantis right through to the Knights of St John and modern day lightworkers. I have a fascination with them, luckily for me my husband Paul is ok with them, many people think they are weird and ugly. The shape of the skull is enhanced with the crystal it is made from so has many different qualities and purpose. The crystal skulls each have 3 spiritual guardians which are assigned to the skull to help the skulls guardian (us). The skulls upload and download spiritual information which is gathered from spirit guides, Ascended Masters, Archangels and I believe Universal beings, the Pleadians.
Each skull is unique no 2 skulls are the same, even when they are made from the same crystal family they will feel different. The skull will feel friendly and have a fascination for the person who buys it, they will see past its 'ugliness' and know they have to buy it.
Skulls are used for healing yourself and your guides, meditation and a spiritual library to store what you have leanrt in your dreams and in your spiritual work. It might sound weird but skulls 'talk' to each other by them sharing their knowledge by the crystals energy connecting to another.
When you first buy a skull hold it in both hands gently so it can vibrate and close your eyes, image you are being drawn inside the skull. For the first 3 nights sleep with the skull next to your bed it will be able to connect to your subconscious. Keep the skull in your healing or meditation room, not in the dark where their energy will fade.
Hopefully I have given you a bit of insight in to how useful and friendly skulls are to spiritual workers.
