As witches and magickal practitioners trying to live magickally extrodinary lives, sometimes the mundane things of life can get in the way. Depending on how busy you are it can be difficult to make time for rituals, cleansings, meditations, affirmations, or even just alone time. I believe the secret to overcome this is simple. With intention and a bit more understanding of correspondences, everything you do in life can be as magickal as your rituals and meditations.
In saying this, I hope to create a series of small tips and tricks to integrate your magickal practice with your day to day ordinary life. Whether you consider yourself to be a witch, magickal practitioner, New age spiritualist, or undefined, hopefully these “hacks” will help you out on your journey.
So here are some witch hacks you can try out :
- Using Hair Products With Natural Ingredients — hair products that contain any trance of natural ingredients can be used for protecting yourself or even aid in manifesting. The more natural and clean the hair product is, the more effective it will be. The hair product I do recommend to use would be hair Oil. Oils are already a staple in witchcraft all over the world. They are used to dress candles, anoint petitions, and even be worn on the body for protection. Simply hold the bottle with both hands and visualize and feel the energy charge the bottle. Say aloud “I anoint the ingredient “coconut” to provide me protection from all dangers and to purify my aura so I am at my best.” This is just a example, feel free to reword it to your liking. Then massage a small amount of the oil into the scalp and through the hair. Either chant or say the intention in your head. Envision a shield of protection surrounding you, and feel protected. If available, you can add your own essential oils to the hair oil. This will increase your potency and effectiveness. you will also be able to anoint more ingredients to focus on other things you want to achieve.
2. Kitchen Witchery — Living your magickal life cannot be complete without bringing your magick into the kitchen . Food nourishes us from our core, and feeds us so we grow. So why wouldn’t it make sense to feed our powerful intentions into our bodies? You can use literally any plant based ingredient, and charge it with your energy and intentions. Herbs are especially useful for this. Already they are used in dressing candles, making oils, and put into floor washes. Simply take the herbal ingredients you were going to add and hold the herbs, charging your intention into them . It always helps to envision the energy going into the herbs and say your intention aloud. Cook with the herbs. You can also chant your intentions while you cook. If you are making something that can be stirred, you can stir clockwise to draw forward or stir counter clockwise to draw away.
3. Enchanted Jewelry — This witch hack is a easy and (if you want) a discrete way to bring your Magick with you. I recommend using a jewelry piece that either is a talisman i.e pentacle, a crystal, or something that is real gold or silver. These materials have a lot of history backing them, and are still commonly used for rituals and spiritual protection. The pentacle as a talisman is commonly used in Wicca and many other witchcraft practices for protection. It is used to open and close circles, protect from negative entities, and even control them. A crystal piece can be a very handy addition to your spiritual arsenal. Depending on the crystal, you will able to attribute many uses for them. For example having a clear quartz necklace can help you with clearing your mind, helping you focus, amplifying your manifestations, clearing out negativity, sharpening psychic abilities, and emotional and spiritual healing. Wearing real silver and gold jewelry can help you achieve your manifestation goals quicker. This is because these metals are conductors. If there’s a gemstone or crystal attached to something silver or gold (i.e a chain) , the gem or crystals abilities will be amplified. Silver is also know for it’s emotional healing, and connection to the psychic mind. Gold is also a master healer, it can amplify and transmit negative energy into positive. It also has the ability to cleanse your chakras and purify your aura.
4. The magickal benefits of skincare — while following your daily beauty regimen, you can also add a little bit of magick to the mix. Similar to energetically putting your intention into the natural ingredients in different hair products, you can do the same for skincare. Again the more natural the skincare product is, the more powerful the effect of the herbal ingredients will have. Charging your skincare can easily be attributed to beauty spell work, however you can do pretty much any spell work that would benefit you such as luck, protection, healing, prosperity, self confidence, and attraction spells. You can also get creative and strategically apply your skincare in circular directions to manipulate the type of energies you want, such as drawing in (clockwise motions) or repelling (counter clockwise). The type of skincare I am choosing you show you in this post is a rose water spray. This can be a very handy addition to your arsenal because it can be applied onto your skin at anytime. This water will provide your skin with extra moisture, and aid as a anti-inflammatory component in your regimen to help improve redness, irritations, and acne. You can apply this at the end of your beauty regimen as well. Magically speaking, rose water is a great way to draw in romance, self love, friendship, self healing, beauty, and help strengthen your manifestations.
So those were a handful of different tips and tricks you can add to your ordinary day to day life to make it more magickal. I will be adding more Everday Witchery to this blog in the near future.
