And another happy review of the candle service!

Published January 10, 2019 by Donnalee of Woodstock NY

“I love that Donnalee offered to do this for me. I have DID; in fact I am one of the alters in our system. For those who may not know, DID stands for dissociative identity disorder, and alters, or parts, are the personalities who share a body with the main or host person.
As soon as the candle that Donnalee lit for me finished, I felt really good. I felt all the bad energy drain out of me. It felt like I was able to let go of a lot of stuff. I felt happier. More content in myself which I was delighted about.
I’d highly recommend people try this out. You’ll be really glad you did. I can guarantee you’ll feel the difference right away from the lighting of the candle. They are great for getting rid of bad cooties.”

Another nice recommendation for the candle service!

“Donnalee very kindly offered to light a few candles for me, to help me maybe feel better in myself, since I’d been having a lot of trouble with ptsd symptoms.
The lighting of the candle was wonderful. I instantaneously felt better! Once she told me she’d lighted it, I could feel its effects right away. Right after she got done burning it, I felt great! Positive, like a lot of badness, and bad energy and stuff was gone!
I would recommend people try it! It really does work!
Donnalee is very professional, friendly, positive, and I would recommend her services. You won’t be disappointed in them!”

Another nice testimonial about the candle service

Published December 27, 2018 by Donnalee of Woodstock NY

I was pleased to receive this endorsement today:

“Donnalee is a person with access to heightened
perception and the sacred big mind. I was in very severe
physical pain when she lit candles for me, and for the first
time in my life I was able to observe the pain and not mind
it. I am sure any work she does will prove to be interesting
and rewarding!

Marka Knight, Singer”


Thanks, Marka.  I’m really glad it helped.


Best wishes


Nice positive feedback on the candle service

Published December 4, 2018 by Donnalee of Woodstock NY

Here is a nice new recommendation for the candle service. I will also add it on the Client Endorsements and Recommendations page.

“I wanted to write you about my experiences being a test case “guinea pig”. I admittedly went into the experiment with an open mind albeit a bit skeptical. I am a psychologist/therapist in New York City and the Hudson Valley. I emphasize being grounded, but also open to the mysterious realms that we can’t control or predict.

From the time you prepared and started lighting candles and meditating on my situation I noticed an unmistakable shift in energy–most notably connected to my money situation. Money started to subtly but unmistakably appear. Patients from the past who had owed money suddenly re-appeared and reimbursed me. Old patients called to undergo therapy again. Mind you some of these patients had been last seen fifteen plus years ago.

I can’t explain the results, but there was clearly a correlation between your work, a shift in energies and some tangible results. Perhaps the spirits became involved as we say in kabbalah/ shamanism. At any rate, I recommend your work and would make use of it again and emphatically iterate its gentle and benign quality. It is not a replacement for other approaches, but an adjunct.

I updated my post about the candles

Published November 28, 2018 by Donnalee of Woodstock NY

I updated the post about candles and wanted to see if everyone got notified. If anyone wants to have me do a FREE series of four candles for them, I am willing to do that for the first three folks who write to me at laughingdakinimusic at yahoo dot com and tell me what they’d like me to do the candles for–health, general, money, relationship, etc., and if they want them one a day for four consecutive days OR once a week for four consecutive weeks. It’d be great to get honest feedback as a result. Thanks and best wishes, and we’ll see who actually reads these notices and gets a nice little holiday gift of positive energy in return!

I am offering a completely new additional service!

Published October 18, 2018 by Donnalee of Woodstock NY

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, 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 poverty and money pressures 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, but 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.

I actually started burning candles regularly for myself and others again fairly recently (2018) after dabbling for a very long time, 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 have not heard from yet, so I do not know the specifics of that person’s current situation, but the candles I burn for them now go much more smoothly than when I started burning them for that person. It has been fascinating to burn candles and see how they behave: candles in the same setting, same type and even 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 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 downtown office doing tarot readings.

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 $54.00 FOR A SERIES OF FOUR CANDLES specially prepared by me for this purpose to be burned by me either on 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 $21.00. 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 $54.00 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 next day or next week, according to original order), the following series are $45.00 for another series of four. 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 laughingdakinimusic @ yahoo dot com, and/or send the fee direct via Paypal to that email with a note of the subject you want the candles burned for the benefit of, and I will schedule you at the soonest available time. Sooner reserved equals sooner served–

Thanks, all, and best wishes
