A new day is here and you feel MAGICAL AF, how best to start your day than a a simple ritual?
Now, don’t get me wrong, we are NOT a Disney Princess, we do not wake primed and perfect and ready to tackle our day. Sometimes it takes every ounce of energy to just sit up.
Here, I have broken down a nice ritual you can do as and when you feel like you can, don’t feel guilty if you don’t do it everyday, i can guarantee I don’t! However, I do notice that my better days have always been those where I have done some kind of ritual. Could just be though!
Your morning caffeine kick
Whether it’s tea or coffee, even a glass of water, whatever your choice of beverage is first thing in the morning, let’s make it magical.
I add honey (to sweeten my day) to my coffee (grounding) and stir the cup three times as I set my intention for the day. Sometimes out loud, sometimes in my head. Whatever my intention is, i speak it as though it has already been achieved.
“I have had a productive day”
“I have had a happy day”
“I have achieved everything I wanted to achieve”
“I completed that report”
” I have absolutely smashed my day because I am a badass”
After the third stir, I tap my spoon three times on the rim of my favourite mug to ‘seal’ the intention for the day. Instead of a spoon, you can also use a cinnamon stick for extra abundance and magical energy!
Light a candle / some incense
This can be made even better when you use a candle / colour or scent to compliment your intention for the day. For example, if you want to stay relaxed, use lavender.
Here’s a wee correspondence chart if this is all new to you
|Happy||Yellow||Frankincense or orange|
|Romance||Reds and Pinks||Rose or cherry (dragonsblood is great for love magic, wink wink)|
|Lucky / wealth||Green||Pine|
Visualise your day
As I have a 9-5, it’s pretty easy to predict how my day is going to go but I also visualise how i want my day to make me FEEL. Maybe I have a big presentation that i’m nervous about it, as I get dressed i picture myself absolutely smashing it and celebrating in the pub afterwards. It’s warm, inviting and the air is abuzz with delight.
Draw a card of the day
This is a nice and simple thing to do if you’re still learning tarot, want to brush up your skills, are experimenting with a different deck or even just want to start incorporating more divination into your daily routine.
Questions to ask as you shuffle your deck:
“What challenges may I see today”
“How do I approach that presentation I have”
“How do I communicate my feelings with X:
“How can i make my day brighter’
“What good news in in store today”
Seal your day
As the ending to my little ritual of the morning, I like to seal it with a bit of glamour magic. I have a favourite enchanted lipstick (or a chapstick of you’re not feeling the effort… you know), pop that on while speaking a final affirmation to the mirror. For me, that final affirmation is usually ‘you got this, AJ’.
