Enhance your life by tapping into the mystical energies of these magical horses…
Unicorns are much-loved mythical creatures that have long had a place in our hearts and imaginations, but did you know you can also call upon their innate spiritual powers to live a more fulfilling and empowered life? Start transforming your destiny today by adding a sprinkle of unicorn magic – the following meditations from magic practitioner Kirsten Riddle will show you how…
A symbol of freedom and possibility, unicorns are believed to straddle both the magical and earthly realms and travel freely between dimensions. Their ability to push boundaries is supported by their inner strength and fearlessness and these qualities make them the ideal creatures to turn to if you feel like you’re preventing yourself from reaching your true potential.
Don’t hold back
“The next time you’re feeling frustrated that you’re not moving forwards in life, picture yourself riding a unicorn along an empty beach,” suggests Kirsten. “Imagine the waves lapping against the shore. You can run in any direction, and at any speed. Just enjoy the sensation of being free.” If at any time you start doubting yourself, Kirsten recommends finding a mirror and repeating the following words: “I am powerful and free. Like a unicorn I take my own path”
These mythical creatures are admired for their iconic spiral horns, which are said to ward off negative energy. Using their shielding powers can help you remove any toxicity in your life, whether it be unhealthy relationships, friends or even your own self-beliefs, so you can make space for nourishing and supportive energy to filter into your life.
Kirsten recommends finding a piece of quartz with a pointed edge to evoke the energies of the unicorn horn. “Hold it in your hands, with the tip facing away from the body,” she explains. “Spend a few minutes breathing deeply to calm your mind, then say out loud: “I am protected. I am strong. I repel all that harms me.” As you repeat these words, visualise a sphere of light coming from the crystal – this is a protective energy shield that will help keep negative influences at bay. If you’re feeling particularly vulnerable, keep the quartz in your pocket and repeat the affirmation whenever you need a boost.
With spiralling white energy emanating from their foreheads, unicorns are highly enlightened beings – it’s believed that they have returned to earth for the first time in centuries to help us with our ascension to other realms. If you’re looking to activate your intuition, or you have a burning question you would like answered by a higher being, tapping into the unicorn’s enchanting energy will help you to awaken your connection to Spirit.
Raise your vibration
“Massage a couple of drops of geranium essential oil into a white candle,” says Kirsten. “Light its flame and sit with your back straight and shoulders relaxed. Close your eyes and imagine you’re bathed from head to toe in white light – feel it pouring like a unicorn’s mane around your shoulders. Breathe deeply as the light hits the top of your head and then flows through your body. In your mind’s eye, ask to connect with Spirit and let any thoughts, emotions and images come into your head. When you’ve finished, turn your attention to your breathing again and gently open your eyes.”
Associated with purity, light and love, unicorns are also said to be able to heal emotional pain – with their tears! So if you’re looking to overcome a difficult situation or to mend a broken heart, summoning the unicorn’s healing energies will not only help you to accept and forgive, but also to fill your life with love and abundance.
Release the past
Take a step in the right direction with this visualisation from Kirsten: “Close your eyes and imagine you’re in a woodland opening with the sun filtering through the trees. You’re standing in the middle of a circle of flowers, but you’re chained to the spot. A unicorn emerges from the trees to join you. Look deep into its eyes and ask for its help to move on. You may hear it speak a message of love, or feel warm and comforted by its presence. Let the unicorn slowly release you from your chains and imagine yourself being gently lifted into the air, free of any heartache or pain. Don’t forget to thank the creature for its help.”
Summon your guardian unicorn!
As well as being assigned our own guardian angels, it’s also believed that we each have a guardian unicorn which supports and protects us. Connect with yours with this meditation:
1 Find a relaxing space, free from any interruptions, and light a candle
2 Sit quietly and breathe slowly, then close your eyes
3 Set the intention of connecting with your unicorn and visualise roots travelling from your feet, deep into the earth
4 Ask Archangel Michael to place his deep blue coat of protection around you
5 Call upon your unicorn and imagine a shimmering white horse, filled with love, approaching you
6 Ask your unicorn to balance and light up your chakras and imagine light flowing through your body from the tip to the root
7 When you’re ready, thank your unicorn and slowly open your eyes
