We all have the power to change our lives whenever we wish. However, if you are looking for a bit of extra help, try this 4 step ritual
There are many spells and rituals that can help us focus our energy and draw the energetic resources we need to make changes in our lives. These rituals have powerful effects and can transform our lives in days, hours or even moments. It is not unusual to perform a ritual and then be staggered by a sudden opportunity or synchronicity. So be prepared and be careful what you wish for!!!
For any spell or ritual to work effectively, you need to align your energy with the energy of what you desire. If you are thinking negative thoughts such as ‘I’ll never be able to pay this bill’, or ‘I will never have a good relationship’ you are sending out negative energy into the universe. This is not what you want to do. Ultimately, you need to be the energy you want to attract.
Once you have cleansed any negative energy you need to clearly focus your intention and then gather your power so you can transform your circumstances and attract whatever you desire into your life.
The following ritual will help to cleanse your energy, focus your intention and channel the power you need to transform your life in an instant.
1. Cleanse your energy
Your first step should be to cleanse the negative energy in and around you. If you are experiencing a lot of doubt, negative self-talk or anxiety about your ability to create the life you want then this will block the energy of magic and transformation from entering your life.
One way to clear this negativity is to physically cleanse yourself by taking a bath or shower. If you take a shower, imagine you are allowing all negativity to wash from you and disappear down the drain. You can use an uplifting citrus scented shower gel such as Neal’s Yard Citrus Shower Gel to enhance this effect.
If you choose to take a bath, you can add some natural sea salt to the water to help cleanse your body. You can also add some uplifting essential oils, such as cedarwood, peppermint or lemon to help cleanse your mind and body.
If you don’t have the time or opportunity to have a bath or shower right now you can cleanse yourself and your space in other simple ways. Try by burning incense or essential oils, ringing a bell or even just clapping your hands.
These preparations may seem silly but they are actually powerful ways to reduce negativity and attract more positive energy into your life. While undertaking the cleansing, focus on positive thoughts and emotions, especially gratitude, appreciation and love. If a negative thought pops into your head don’t worry, this happens. However, try not to dwell on the thought. Instead, gently move your attention back to more positive thoughts.
2. Set the intention for your ritual
Step two is to get clear about what it is you want to bring into your life. It doesn’t matter if you want more love or money, better health or a great job the principle is the same. Get clear and specific about what it is you want.
If you haven’t already manifested this item or experience into your life, chances are you have been subconsciously blocking this experience. You may be blocking this experience because subconsciously you don’t feel you deserve it. Alternatively, you may have learned as a child that you shouldn’t want this item or experience. For example, you may have been brought up in a family where money was considered ‘evil’. You may also feel that the experience or thing you want ‘isn’t for someone like me’. Try to identify the block and write down three reasons why you do want and deserve the experience.
Here are some examples
- I am a loving person and I deserve to be loved
- I work hard and I deserve to be rewarded for my work
- Money can be used for great good
- Other people are successful entrepreneurs/artists/athletes/drive sports cars and I can achieve this, too
3. Gather your power
Gathering and focusing your power and energy is what magic and ritual are all about. The power of the ritual is in the focused energy you bring to it. Whether you use candle magic, prayer, sigils or dance doesn’t matter. The important thing is that you bring as much energy as you can muster and focus it on what you want to bring into your life.
One simple way to do this is to write down what you want, or create an image of it and meditate on it for a few minutes. You can then visualise achieving what you desire. Make the visualisation as vivid as you can, breathing in the sights, sounds and smells that it will bring. Now imagine how having this thing or experience will feel. Feel your heart fill with the joy, love or peace having this experience will bring.
If you want, you can create a more complicated ritual, including candles and incense, special clothes, music or even undertaking the ritual outside under the light of the moon. A simple ritual works fine, but when you create a more complicated ritual you are adding more attention and energy to your desires. You don’t have to follow any rules in creating your ritual – do whatever feels right to you.
The intention and focused energy that goes into preparing for this ritual and organising the time and supplies needed adds to the overall energy and will make your ritual more powerful and effective.
Close the ritual
When you have finished your ritual you can bury or burn the slip of paper with your intention written on it. You should then give thanks to the Universe or God/s/Goddesses for all that you have and all that you are about to receive.
It is wise to finish the ritual by having something to eat or drink to ground yourself back into ordinary reality.
