Candle service details

There is a sort of in-joke among professional tarot readers that some scammy places are notorious for telling clients who go in for a reading that the poor client is suffering under some curse or bad energy from someone else and that fortunately the reader can burn a candle for the client afterhours for ‘only’ $600 or $5,000.00 or other huge amount, and that’ll take care of it. Very often the poor suffering client does indeed pay these vast amounts out of fear and desperation, and if life doesn’t get perfect within a short time, they are told they need the extra-special extra-expensive NEXT level of candle, and maybe that’ll help, so they wind up with additional money pressures and fears of the severity of the trouble, on top of their original issues. That is not the kind of service I am offering! To be clear, there are many traditions where the removal of hexes or curses or general bad vibes is a practical and valuable service, and many of us do a variation of moving along and clearing energy in our various traditions and practices, and I do NOT mean to imply disrespect for the legitimate practitioners who charge fair prices for good service.  I am NOT referring above to those who charge reasonable fees for a reasonable service, but rather about those who cheat the fearful and unfortunate, which seems a bad and unkind idea and causes more harm for all involved.

A chitchat sort of digression about the candles:  I actually started burning candles regularly for myself and others again fairly recently (2018) after dabbling for a very long time (seriously, childhood experiments decades ago that taught me to be careful what I wished for!), and I have been so pleased with the results. It took me long enough to figure how to use having been electrocuted and even now still containing so much electricity in this productive way! Better late than never–

It seems to me that me burning these candles, which I put certain oils and herbs and a little this-and-that on while doing beneficial mantras and blessings, seems to help the energy and clear some of the obstacles for the people, including me. In the months I did it steadily for me and three others as an experiment to find the most beneficial approach, one person yesterday received an unexpected $5,000.00 gift from a usually completely-stingy parent, and (updated) has been getting many more good business clients; one who had wanted to go into detox for a while and had been denied a bed last month was happily admitted to detox in the last two weeks and is doing well (updated: and is in rehab now and doing well); and yesterday a family member sent me as a gift an unexpectedly (shockingly) large sum of money, a generous five figures, which was sorely needed and greatly appreciated. I also experienced a sort of healing crisis that appears to really be improving my longterm health. The last person in our experiment I had not heard from yet, so I did not know the specifics of that person’s current situation, but the candles I burned for them went much more smoothly than when I started burning them for that person. (updated: the person did indeed find the desired partnership outcome last time we were in touch).

It has been fascinating to burn candles and see how they behave: candles in the same setting, same type and colour of candle, from the same box, same lack of drafts, same preparations put on them, burning at the same time next to each other, can produce such different results. The wax can go towards or away from other candles, producing unexpected foul smells when whatever energetic cooties appear to burn away, forming items that look like anything from detailed little angel figures and other specific items, to vague giant blobs that refuse to burn. Some, rarely, have complete ‘meltdowns’ which turn out to be exactly what is going on with the client’s life.

I now offer this service to clients in exchange for money. It seems optimal for me to burn four candles in a series for the same person’s situation, either over four days in a row or one a week for four weeks, since there is usually such a difference from the first candle to the others following it. I could certainly do only one, especially for those who want fast help and don’t want to pay for four, but it seems that the progression of four helps the most, and the first candle of the four would be done soon anyhow. Since it takes a good couple of hours to do and attend to one candle, I have limited spots available for this, since it requires my attendance at my home office and I am often at my uptown Kingston NY office doing tarot readings or on zoom.

The purpose of the candle burning is the same as the tarot readings: for the best outcome of the person’s situation. It can be for general improvement and well-being, or for any kind of area of life like money, relationships, health, etc. There is no cursing of anyone or ‘sending bad energy back to where it came from’ or invisible threats to try to force people to pay up what is owed or to leave one alone etc.–the bad energy just is transformed and people tend to pay what is owed without threats, etc. Energetic cooties and obstacles, whether sent to us intentionally or simply picked up in the course of life, do seem to affect us and our well-being, so this form of energetic clearing somehow is a very productive form for me to do and I have seen steady good results even in intentionally negative situations. There cannot be a guarantee of effects, but I genuinely believe in the effectiveness of this form of clearing negative energy and sending blessings and have been tremendously pleased with the results for me and others.

The price of this service, of me specifically preparing and burning candles on your behalf for the best outcome of your chosen situation–money, health, relationship, business, family harmony, in preparation for the birth of a child, general clearing of negative energies, etc.–and then me reporting back to you via email is $123.00 FOR A SERIES OF FOUR CANDLES specially prepared by me for this purpose to be burned by me on your behalf either on four consecutive days or one a week for four weeks.

If you want ONE CANDLE ONLY specially prepared and burned on your behalf, the price is $35.00, which includes me writing you a detailed email about how it went. 

If you would like me to do one candle or one series of candles for you each month or more regularly, later candles ordered consecutively are at a special rate: if you ordered one and love it and want to go for the series of four and tell me ASAP that you wish to continue, the cost of the first one can be applied to the $123.00 for the rest of the series for a total of four. If you order a series of four and want me to do it again right after the first series is finished, the following series are $100.00 for another series of four.  This also applies to my regular clients who have me do candles for them every week ongoing.  Each candle takes a few hours to burn and I observe it all along, so it is a real dedication of my time and observation skills and experience.  Feedback is of real interest to me, so I can know what is most effective for each person and situation and increase the positive outcome for all.

If you are interested in this service, please let me know by email laughingdakini @, so I am informed. Sometimes Paypal does not notify me in a timely manner that payments have been made. I will schedule you at the soonest available time. Sooner reserved equals sooner served–

Thanks, all, and best wishes


We can’t control what others do and we can’t stop misfortune from striking. But we can control our own actions. Those who are financially prudent will most likely enjoy success, even if events don’t always go their way.
