4 Easy Rituals for Your Magical Life
Rediscovering and reclaiming the magic that surrounds you is a powerful step toward embracing your most authentic self. Each and every one of us has the ability to tap into our intuition, work our intention, and manifest in accordance with our Highest Good. Does that sound a little too woo-woo for you? I get it! Our world has painted magic as something that seems unattainable. It’s either foolish and make believe or it’s something not to be touched.

But guess what? We are meant for magic.

It simply slipped away and is in need of remembering. Rediscovering. Reclaiming.

If you, like me, have spent countless hours diving into fantasy novels and longing for something you thought you couldn’t have — I’m here to remind you that you are 100% worthy of the sparkle you crave. Are you ready to add that sparkle to your daily life? The magical and the mundane are more intertwined than people tend to believe. You don’t need an entire cabinet dedicated to candles, crystals, herbs, and tarot cards to weave your magic. All you really need is yourself and your intention and some easy rituals to guide you.

That being said — a few tools and easy rituals to enhance your focus can be beneficial to your practice.

Especially if you’re just starting out or keeping your witchy ways on the down low. At the end of the day, all you need is YOU. Here are a few simple, subtle ways to work your magic as you go about your daily life… Curious about my own magical experiences? Check out Episode 112 of the Moon + Manifest podcast for a peek into the moments that led me to embrace my True Nature and reclaim my magic!

Easy Ritual #1:


Lighting a candle is one of the simplest ways to set an intention for your day and makes for an easy ritual. You can dedicate a candle to a particular goal, a phase of the moon, or even a day of the week. Lighting that candle is a simple ritual to remind yourself of the intention you set. Start by holding your candle, close your eyes if it feels comfortable, and visualize or speak your intention out loud. You can choose to carve what you’d like to manifest onto the side of your candle or on the top of the wax if it’s in a tin or glass container.

Whether you stay simple with a key word or short phrase, or really dive in and craft a petition, every time you light your candle — it acts as a conduit to release the energy you put into your goal out into the universe. Color correspondences can come into play here too if that’s your thing! Here’s a short list to get you started.

Candle Color Correspondences

  • White    —  Cleansing, Purification, Full Moon
  • Black    —  Protection, Banishment, New Moon
  • Red       —  Passion, Love, Taking Action
  • Orange —  Confidence, Success
  • Yellow   —  Joy, Friendship, Comfort
  • Green   —  Abundance, Money, Growth
  • Blue      —  Communication, Inspiration, Calm
  • Purple   —  Spirituality, Wisdom, Psychic Abilities

Easy Ritual #2


Sometimes we just need an extra boost of confidence. Enchant your jewelry and any other accessories to help you stand in your power whenever you wear them. Chances are you already have a favorite piece in your closet! Or maybe there’s that “for special occasions” accessory that you never get to wear. Those are already buzzing with energy from the emotional significance you’ve given them which makes them a great piece to enchant! Keeping it simple, just hold your chosen item and imagine filling it with the energy of your goal.

You may feel it begin to buzz against your skin, change temperature, or grow heavier—all signaling that your enchantment has taken effect. If you’re not feeling anything, not to worry! Trust your intuition. If it feels ready, it likely is. Just like with anything in life, this is a skill and it takes practice.

Easy Ritual #3


Tarot is an amazing tool for personal growth. Pulling a daily tarot or oracle card can offer wisdom and guidance while strengthening your intuition. Keep a journal close by — or even the notes app on your phone — and write down the messages you receive from the cards. Shuffle and cut your deck however you choose, ask out loud or in your mind “What do I need to know today?”, and pull your card. Take note of what your eyes are drawn to most quickly. Colors, images, and words all come into play when deciphering the meaning.

Check your guidebook or do a quick google search if you need clarification! You don’t need to know everything right away. If you’re looking for a deck, check out the Wild Messengers Alchemical Tarot and guidebook!

Easy Ritual #4


This can mean anything from going on a hike, to caring for a houseplant, to stargazing. Connecting with the spirit of Nature helps remind us of the magic in the world around us. Learn about your neighborhood plant allies and the local flora and fauna that live alongside you. Pick up litter if you see it. Say thank you to the trees! If you aren’t already, start honoring the phases of the moon and learn to recognize whether the moon is waxing or waning.

There are so many little actions you can take each day to give back to nature and connect with the magic of the earth. Simply being more aware of the miraculous world around you—plants, animals, sky, earth, and stars—will help guide you back to your Divine Self.
