One of the most wonderful things about magic is that it can be done anywhere, at any time. You don’t need to be wearing a special cloak, dancing around a bubbling cauldron … even though that image is very evocative! You can harness your power with your back pressed against a bathroom stall, as you rock gently within a subway car, or before you drift off to sleep.
While we all want to manifest big love, plenty of cash, and a life full of adventure, sometimes we just need a little hit of magic: Something to make us feel better on a day-to-day basis. Here are three simple rituals that I practice every week to stay positive, confident, and centered. Try them, and watch magic happen in your life!
Energy Protection Ritual
How to do it: It’s all about creating a vision! There are many variations, but here are two of my favorite ways to do it. The first technique is calling “zipping up,” where you imagine a huge zipper that starts at your pelvis and runs all the way up to the top of your head. All you need to do is visualize closing that zipper, and thereby sealing in all your goodness!
What it does: Protecting your energy is a way of keeping other people’s psychic gunk off you. You know how sometimes you walk into a room and feel like you’re absorbing someone else’s bad vibes? You’re not imagining that! When you protect your energy, it means you get to contain all positivity… and you won’t pick up anyone else’s unhappy mood.
When to do it: It’s best before you leave the house for the day, although you can repeat it throughout the day, whenever you’re feeling drained.
The second technique involves seeing yourself inside a sphere. Some people like to visualize themselves inside a big pink bubble, but I like to see myself in a huge disco ball, through which only positive energy can penetrate (and all negativity, jealousy, and bad vibes get bounced back out!).
