The word conjure tends to be an emotional one for many people. I remember mentioning Curio, Craft & Conjure (the name of my store) on social media and someone had a very visceral response “Who is the owner of this store? How long have they been practicing? What is their background?”
I felt like what she really wanted to ask was “What makes them an authority?”
If you know anything about me, I am really big on you being your own authority. As a teacher, this is the “song I sing” the most.
I mean, think about it: Conjuring and communicating with your ancestors, angels, and spirit guides is a personal process. I’ve also found it to be an excellent way to get wisdom and advice – offering new perspective on your life’s situations.
There are many ways to communicate with spirits, and everyone has the ability to do it – some just need more help getting started. Certain herbs, oils, incense, or crystals can help focus and open your mind and allow communication to come more easily. Amethyst crystals are one of the best for any form of psychic communication or divination — they help you relax, allow you to focus, and clear energy pathways. Selenite Harmonizers help clear your aura and clear energy blockages, and Shungite cubes ground. Sage is a powerful purifier, and Sweet Grass can also help you relax and open yourself to spirit communication.
If you are new to communicating with spirits, a structured process may be helpful. You will need:
First, relax. Place the shungite cubes in front, behind and on both sides. Anoint the candles with tobacco or dandelion root oil. Set the two blue candles on either side of your spirit altar, and the white one above it. Sit or stand with your selenite harmonizers. Say a short protective prayer, like: “Holy Mother….I ask for your protection and assurance that only well-intentioned ancestor spirits communicate with me.”
Light the candles. Ask your questions, then breathe, allowing the answers to come to you. They may be a feeling, a sense, or images may come to mind. Write down whatever you get, to analyze later. When you sense your questions have been answered, thank the spirits, snuff the candles, and ground your energy.
Speaking to spirits is an ancient practice that priests, witches, and shamans have been performing for millennia. The practice of conjure can be a personal one. Our Quantum Conjure course is specifically for those who want to deepen their personal practice. You can easily learn to channel wisdom from the spirit world, for a happier and abundant life.
