Please light a candle...

I'm sorry, I don't usually ask for help, but I was wondering if y'all could keep me in your thoughts.  Light a candle, spare a little energy if you can...but I'm in a bit of financial trouble.  We recently *read: about a month ago* switched phone services and each got a smart phone.  It was a little pricey, but just stretching a bit we were able to afford it.  Then we were slammed with totally unexpected car repairs.  Then due to a mistake (not on my part that I was unaware of for several days) my account was overdrawn and I got slammed with three insufficient funds charges ('cause my bank is a dick and wouldn't reject my card so they could charge me more).  All in all we've had to soak about $600-700.  Rent is due at the end of the week, we still have bills from last month to pay as well as this month's bills, and my guy's student loan bills kick in this month.  My next paycheck is on the 10th.  Christmas is this month.
We are officially at the oh-shit-we-can't-afford-ramen point.  I'm not asking for money, I'm just asking you to spare a thought.  That's all.  I wouldn't even ask if I weren't at the end of my rope.  I know that likely only a few people will even read this, but if you could, I'd appreciate it.
I plan to borrow eggs ('cause I can't afford them) from friends and whip up a batch of prosperity cookies (that is, the cookie recipe Wendy posted over at Year of the Cats--those spices all have the property of prosperity in common), which I will then be leaving as an offering, one a day, until they run out--in addition to any other prosperity spells I do.
By the by, does anyone know a kick-ass emergency prosperity spell?
((PS--To my little sister, if she reads this, don't you DARE tell mom and dad!  1) I want them to hear it from me if I have to tell them at all 2) I'm only going to go to them for help as a very last resort.  Don't worry, we'll still have you for x-mas vacation.  We'll figure it out somehow.))
((PPS-- To the winners of my bindrune giveaway, I'm afraid that I won't be able to ship out your rune for a little while...not until I can afford shipping at least.  I'm very sorry for the inconvenience, and will endeavor to get them out as soon as possible))


  1. Hi Leathra, so sorry to hear about your financial crisis, believe me when I say I have been there and know the feelings you must be having. I won a book during Mrs B's 31 days of Halloween called "Magic When You Need It", by Judika Illes. She has a spell for getting cash fast. She writes if you are desperate for a specific sum of money, this spell sends out an SOS to the universe for immediate financial aid.
    The spell is called "Shopping Bag full of Cash"
    Cut a square from a brown paper bag. Write the exact amount you need in the center. Dress a green candle with essential oils of basil and bergamot. If you are so inclined, petition the spiritual power of your choice to rescue you from your dire predicament. Place the paper under the candle. Burn the candle daily for 15 minutes at a time while petitioning, praying and affirming your request until the specified amount is accumulated. (end of spell). So if you dont have those essential oils, you can search on line for substitutes. And if you cant find them, do the spell without them. It is your "Intention and Focus" that will work this spell. Good luck. It will work if you KNOW that it will work.

  2. Leathra, I know how incredibly scary it can be with finances seem to disappear so quickly. I'm so sorry that you're facing this right now. Especially, when our society overloads on Xmas with all the buying and spending. I always pray to Fortuna when I need a swift gift of prosperity. A green candle is what I light and just imagine her opening her arms and opening wide to shower me with blessings. I will most certainly light a candle for you and I'm sending you lots of love and blessings.

  3. Ah Leathra, I'm right there with you - a series of unfortunate events that is making the overall situation pretty dire and frustrating.

    I've been keeping a green candle dressed with cinnamon oil burning for the last couple of days - I'll happily add another for your situation as well (keep all the prosperity flowing - the more it moves the better for all).

    Hang in there.

  4. Hi Leathra..wishing many powerful sparkles bless you and your situation and all you divinely need finds it's way to you..
    Hang on, Keep spirited..shine on.

  5. By the way you can use pine or evergreen if you can't find Bayberry.

  6. I will light a candle for you...

    May you be Blessed with all of the Prosperity of the Universe!

    Blessings & Light -

  7. I too will light a candle for you.. =]

    Sending you blessings and all that you may need.

  8. I will light a candle for you as well.

    May the universe send you what you need on wings of speed.

  9. Hi Leathra, I am new to your blog and enjoy it a lot. I will light a candle and pray for you when I go home from work in a couple of hours. I am in the same tight spot so I hope you don't mind me borrowing some of the wonderful ideas in the comments.
    Blessings and may Spirit provide you with what you need.

  10. Hey all,
    Thank you SO much!! I'm so touched by everyone who is willing to help, I don't think I can express it properly. I'm fairly radiating gratitude right now, I can't thank you enough for caring.

    To those who took the time to give me tips and ideas, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!! I know that it takes a little extra effort to contribute a spell when commenting, thank you so much for taking the time to. I can't express how much I appreciate it.

    To those who are in the same position, candles will be lit for you as well. ^_^ And of COURSE you can use the ideas as well!

    Again, thank you all so much! It helps so much to reach out and be supported, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. I truly cannot thank you all enough! Your support gives me the courage and hope to carry through.

  11. I'm really sad to hear you're struggling. i've only just had the chance to sit down for a good old blog read as the family have been sick.
    I will be sending up a prayer and light a candle for you when I sit down for my daily devotions today. I really hope the universe sends you what you need.
    In native american spirituality the buffalo embodies prayer and abundance, he is the energy of recieving enough to meet your needs. I don't know of any specific meditations but maybe you could sit a meditation and try to call his buffalo energy to you. It's a quiet, understated but powerful kind of medecine. Infact if you send me an email, I have the tip of a buffalo horn that has been with me for some years ~ I'm more than happy for it to move on if you'd like to send me your address then I'll be happy to post it to you.

  12. I have a special pillar w/ a list of names under it for those I send out extra prayers to. I will include your name, in Dragon's Blood ink tonight. I hope things get better for you. Many blessings.

  13. I have soooo been there...the bank it TD Bank? if so this was a new policy they took on after taking over for commerce. anyway call them at customer service and tell them you want to "OPT OUT" of what they CALL "OVERDRAFT PROTECTION" I was like, seriously, you call it that? It isn't PROTECTION, to automatically approve all debit card purchases, it IS in fact what causes OVER DRAFT! Freakin' idiots!!

    I will lite my Bayberry candle for you, and say some words to the god and goddess and do this nightly until yule.

    Bayberry candles are for Finances.

    Warmest blessings,

  14. I forgot to say my bayberry candle is inscribed with both a rune for prosperity and the dollar sign, it was charged with amber oil, and has been rolled in cinnamon and nutmeg....If anyone else needs their name added to my piece of paper under the candle, please contact me. I am praying over it and keeping it burning for one hour each evening til YULE.


  15. I will absolutely light a candle for you and keep you in my thoughts <3
    I hope things look up soon.

  16. ~i am a bit late here but a candle i will light for you this day and for the days ahead...may you be blessed with prosperity...showering many blessings upon you and turn up in unexpected we are for you and lift you up in well my dear...warm wishes and only the brightest of blessings upon you always~

  17. Oh my goodness!!! I am sending all the positive energy and thoughts I can spare! I hope things have started to work out and everything is going well again. I hope the bank issues are resolved.. I just had a very similar issue with my bank and it's ridiculous how you can get caught up in that when it's not your fault. take care of yourself and your family. things are going to work out for you, if they haven't already. take care

    Brightest of Blessings,

    sending you positive energy

    - Amanda

  18. Sending positive financial energies your way! Believe me; I understand. We are only now just coming out of the "can't afford to breath free oxygen" financial situation.

  19. You okay? Haven't seen an update and I'm starting to worry.

  20. My ex dumped me because he’s been talking to someone else (even when we were still living together). The problem is I was 6 months pregnant with his baby, so it maked it that much harder for me to move on. I knew I treated him like sh*t throughout our relationship, but I learned my lesson and I wanted him back. I order love spell from her website , I was waiting 3 months, and my lover back to me.
