Whether you’re hoping to improve your relationships, career or the way you look, think and feel, these super-simple tips are guaranteed to add a magical touch to your daily routine, and help you transform your life.
1 Make friends with love
Open your heart to romance, and invite love (and a lover!) into your life by imagining love’s a person you’re going on a date with, and visualising the two of you having lots of fun together. Pretend they’re your perfect partner, knowing your actual one will soon be along.
2 Crystallise your relationships
Treat yourself to a piece of rose quartz (associated with love and compassion), and wear or hold it by your heart chakra to deepen your bonds with others.
3 Boost your love life – goddess-style!
The next time you’re feeling down about your relationship or being single, ask the Greek Goddess of Love Aphrodite to bless you with love. Simply light a pink candle, burn some apple-scented essential oil, and call on her guidance.
4 Manifest your happy ending
Write your own love story by making up a fairy tale, and imagining yourself as its central character. Illustrate the narrative with pretty pictures from magazines, and visualise yourself meeting the man of your dreams, and living happily ever after.
5 Spice up your relationship
Rekindle the passion between you and your partner by sprinkling some chilli powder, paprika and cumin onto a piece of paper, and leaving it under your bed to encourage lots of red hot love action!
6 Fire up your creativity and charm!
Unlock your inner artist by wearing a piece of turquoise near your throat to open up your throat chakra, and help you express yourself with clarity and vision.
7 Dazzle at presentations
Charm your way to the top of the career ladder by spending a few minutes picturing what you’re going to say before any nerve-wrecking presentations. Imagine you’re telling the audience a story by including lots of descriptions, action and emotion to keep them engaged, and wear something gold to maximise your confidence too.
8 Make the right impression
The next time you shake someone’s hand, use this simple technique (known as the witch’s handshake!) to bowl them over. Simply brush the inside of their wrist with your finger, smile and think of a word that sums up the impression you’d like to make. Repeat it in your mind, and you’ll soon have them wrapped around your finger.
9 Think big
Reawaken your sense of adventure by decorating your office and desk area with images of the globe and maps of exciting places to keep you inspired, and let the universe know you’re going places!
10 Fulfil your ambitions
Tap into your full potential by harnessing the magical power of the go-getting Roman Goddess Minerva. Believed to govern science and the arts, she’s even said to have invented music and numbers! Tap into her energy by smearing some olive oil (associated with the deity) on a white candle, lighting it, and ask her for guidance.
11 Be kinder
When it comes to compassion – both for yourself, and others – you can’t beat the Goddess of Unconditional love, Kwan Yin. Often depicted carrying a small vase containing wisdom and kindness, she’s an incredibly powerful deity. Harness her power by pouring a warm cup of hot water and honey into your bath, and asking her to bless your life.
12 Boost your energy
Keep a piece of citrine (known as the ‘cuddle quartz’) in your pocket to boost your self-esteem, and maximise your energy levels.
13 Love you!
Archangel Jazziel is the go-to angel for self-love, and will help you cherish yourself from the inside out. He’s most associated with the colour yellow, so imagine yourself bathed in a luminous yellow light while asking him to help you.
14 Beat the blues
Create your own theme tune. Pick something that really lifts your spirits and makes you feel good about yourself, and play it often. Let yourself go to the music, and sing it in your mind any time you need a boost to recreate those feelings of empowerment!
15 Nurture yourself
Spend five or 10 minutes each day meditating to help you switch off (or prepare) for the day ahead, and ensure you look after yourself first as well as others.
