Some will automatically know how to spot the perfect heart felt gift, but others may have trouble knowing where to begin. If you are the latter here are three simple steps to help you.
Step 1: Identify the core need (try to figure out the root energy that would best embody what the person needs/desires the most, for example if the person fears change, then perhaps a gift that will aid in building confidence)
Step 2: Think about how the person will use the item. For example, if the person is not active and doesn’t like physical activity, a gift membership to a confidence building martial arts class may not have the effect, you desire.
Step 3: If possible personally select each aspect/part of your gift. (if your gift has several components and you are making up individual kits then try to select each part while visualizing the recipient). The fact that you have put your time energy and thought into each selection will make your gift so much more impactful.
For Loneliness – Gift of Self Love, create a gem sampler with an adjustable gem holding necklace and a message about each gem energy. Add an anti-loneliness oil and perhaps a gift certificate to an activity or class.
Self Esteem – Hair salon, massage, Rose quartz gems with pink candles and incense.
Love – gift certificate that gets the person out and involved in a group activity (best chance to create opportunity to meet the right person). Add a gem for courage, and stress relief if they are anxious or fearful
Financial Security – Perhaps a stock and a magazine for entrepreneurs, and a bloodstone (success stone).
Anti-depressant – Uplifting and antidepressant oil blend or incense, burner, humorous book.
Good Fortune – Lucky rubbing stone or keychain, money drawing candle, good luck oil, and a few quick pick lottery tickets.
If you are handy in the kitchen, why not make a cookie that embodies all the wishes for each recipient? You can add it to your package as a tag or bake a bunch and place them in a special tin. Make a gingerbread cookie as the spices have properties of good fortune and protection.
Use color energy to decorate each cookie. Green – (Good fortune & Health), Red – (Love, Passion, Action), Blue – (Spiritual, Stress Relief, Justice), Yellow (Happiness), Pink (Compassion, Love), Orange (Creativity, Positive Change), Brown (Home, family), Purple (Psychic, Pain relief), White (Spiritual, clearing), Black (protective).
Add a decorative piece a paper with a handwritten description of the cookie’s energies.
WRAPPING & CARDS:
Increase the sentiment of a holiday card or gift by adding aromatherapy. In a large container with a lid add a few drops of essential oil or Charmed in Company’s Happy Holiday oil. Scent your wrapping paper and cards by placing them in the box, adding the oil to either a cotton ball or if the box is cardboard directly to it, allow to dry, place objects in box, close lid and let sit a week or until you wish to send or use them. Each object will retain the scent of the oil and add a new dimension to your gift giving.
The best gift of all are those found in the warm memories of the times you spend together. Have a Happy Holiday!
TIGEREYE VS AFRICAN BLOODSTONE GEM MATCH Results
A truly exciting competition, our opponents were equally matched with a multitude of innate gem power. Tigereye came on strong, proving he was more than stunningly handsome, but African Bloodstone healed almost instantaneously from his blows and cast solid hits his way. They circled for several rounds, and the anticipation mounted. Would this be a tie? Was it possible? Casting their eyes towards the judges everyone wondered what subtlety might push their champion to the lead. In the final seconds, Tigereye charged himself with sun energy and glowed so bright African Bloodstone was temporarily blinded. When African Bloodstone lifted her arm to deflect the glare, he hit her with a gem punch, and she went down for the count. “Illegal use of shine!”, half of the crowd roared. Upon instant replay the referee allowed it to stand. Tigereye danced around the ring proclaiming “I am the greatest” and “I have more than luck on my side”. Then, he helped African Bloodstone up, and showing there were no hard feelings offered to take her out for dinner. African Bloodstone declined but they shook hands and parted as friends. “Until the next time” she said and left the ring gracefully.

Wondering what a blue moon is? What energy can you expect from the second blue moon this March? or just curious about Moon energy in general? A blue moon is the second full moon of the month. This is a rare occurrence and is where we get the saying "once in a blue moon". This year there were two blue moons. This last occurred in 1999 and will not occur again until 2037. The next blue moon is March 31st.
Astrologically the moon is associated with fertility, creativity, intuition, receptivity, and fantasy. Every couple of days the moon changes how its energy is expressed. This is through the natural waning and waxing cycles and through its astrological influence. Think of the astrological influence as the filter through which the moon's energy flows. The Full Moon Guide below will give you the time and energy that the moon is expressing. Use it as a guide when lighting candles, meditating, burning incense, manifesting, or doing any form of mystical or metaphysical work.
CHARMED IN COMPANY'S FULL MOON GUIDE FOR 2018
Use this handy guide to select the best time and activity to work with the full moon energy.
Tonight is a powerful moon for visualizing and drawing your intent to you. Use a Rainbow moonstone to charge under its rays.

On February 16th 2018, the Chinese New Year will begin to the barking of the dog. Not to worry, this bark is an excited, playful, friendly greeting, not a threatening one. The global influences of the dog are beneficial to us in many ways. Always protective of the home, we should see those who threaten us backing down rather than facing the bite of a building defense plan. Real estate and property is favored during dog years, so if you are an agent or thinking about buying or selling a home, fortune will favor you. The dog does not favor speculation, so money and investments, should be made only in areas tried and true. In the domestic arena, if you have been thinking of tying the knot, this year favors lasting commitment and happiness. The robust energy given off this year should help in all issues of health & healing.

The Mystical Mind: Heavenly Visitors
By Victoria Chasmar
The holidays have just passed and at this time more than others, we may feel the loss of those who have passed more acutely. Thankfully, it is often a popular time for visitations from deceased loved ones. This article will be on enhancing our awareness of messages from the other side.
CREATE AN ENERGETIC SPACE
Visiting deceased relatives and friends can easily visit once an area has been cleared of negativity. Smudging clears spirits that are not from a pure space (not loved ones or angels). Light a black candle to absorb any negative energy. Light an incense charcoal in a safe burner and add a clearing resin blend to it. Systematically work from your front entrance through your home and out the opposite side of the door you started. Visualize the white light as you clear, and say “all those not in the white light must leave now”. When you reach your front doorway open the door and all the windows to clear the air. Light a white candle and snuff the black candle. Energize your main living areas with the reiki or angels smudge blend. Clear your environment of clutter and decorate with warm and inviting pictures and decorations. Soft music or classic songs are also a nice addition. Light a guardian angel candle or pink and white candles scented with manifesting oil. Place images of those you would like to contact nearby.
There are many ways the deceased can attempt to access us. One method you may wish to try AFTER you have cleared and charged your area is:
Light a white and purple candle scented with chakra 7 oil. Use a copper portal pendulum (it opens). Place angelite and a frankincense tear inside with a piece of parchment with the loved ones name on it inside it. Ask for protection and clear your mind. Ask questions that can be answered with a yes or no. The pendulum's movement you indicate your answers. If nothing happens or you do not feel right, Stop and try another method. If you do connect, limit your time to fifteen minutes or less. If you do not want to work with a portal pendulum a scolesite pendulum will enhance your channeling ability. If this direct method does not work for you, try increasing your sensitivity to your environment to pick up on more subtle messages.
