Magical Self-Care: Herbal Money Bath

You can almost seal the deal before a job interview with this prosperity ritual, This spell is most effective if practiced on a new or full moon Thursday night but can certainly be used whenever you need.  Pour 6 drops of either mint, verbena or apple essential oil into the running bath water. You can also use all three. Turn off all lights, step into the tub and bathe by the light of a single green candle. As you close your eyes, meditate on your true desires. What does personal prosperity mean to you? What do you really need and what do you really want? When you are clear about your answers, focus on the candle flame while whispering:

Here and now, my intention is set.

Money Magic: Thinking Your Way to Prosperity

I learned the art of intention-setting some years ago and quickly incorporated it into my morning rituals. Upon waking, sometimes, even before I open my eyes, I set my intention for the day. It can be about work, financial challenges a problem I am dealing with, relationships, health, hopes and dreams and anything, as long as it is also for the good of all. It has become a morning prayer for me, quick and quiet. I simply state my intention such as “I Intend my presentation today at work  will go really well and I will feel joy as it is happening and set the stage for success for this product launch, for the good of all.  I am grateful for this wonderful day. And so it is.”  During the peak of my money woes,  I would get very specific and set intentions for the exact amount of money I needed to make the mortgage payment, credit card bill, etc. Granular detail is good when manifesting so it is fine to say how much you  want when intending with money. . Avoid using words with any negative charge to them such as “can’t, but, won’t” and amplify your intention with a statement of gratitude immediately after. Always state your intention as if it is happening now and not in the future. Be specific and intend without limit; it does now always have to personal to you and intending for the greater good of all contributes to a positive global shift. By setting intentions every day, you will soon become a master manifestor. I intend that for you!

Chakra Crystals to Protect and Heal

The concept of chakras originated many thousands of years ago in Asia. The ancient philosophers and metaphysicians identified seven main energy centers around the body and saw each chakra emanating energy in the form of a rainbow color that affected the mental, physical, and spiritual balance in a human being. Chakra theory is the basis of many Eastern healing practices. One of the simplest ways to achieve well-being is to place crystals on the parts of the body where certain chakras are centered. Many people I know credit their clarity and well-being to chakra therapy. One sure way to relieve stress and fortify the emotional body is this laying on of crystals.

Mood Lifter: DIY Anti-anxiety Home Misters

Sometimes worry can be stealthy and surprise us with its arrival. Other times, it will make itself known loudly and clearly and sometimes. With the constancy of demands upon our time and energy, it is easy to understand why so many of us can feel anxiety. I urge you to not feel any shame about it, Ever. Many, many of us feel much the same way as you and my intention with this book is to offer helpmate so you can find what works for you. It might well be a combination of a lot of little things. I’ll give you an example from my own life People that know me well know that I love a strong cup of coffee, preferably a triple soy latte. I even thought of myself as a coffee achiever despite a lifelong love of tea.   The routine of getting my beloved latte, however, went from a ten of fifteen minute event to over a half hour at my littl3e neighborhood café, worse, with uneven results. I started making coffee at home with even more uneven results. So, I began experimenting with herbal tea combination and discovered my dream combination which starts my day off perfectly. It is a large cup of chamomile, cinnamon and apple. The splendid scent, delicious taste and heat is something I look forward to each morning. As if that is not enough, I noticed a side benefit. If I have it right as I open email each day, I am undaunted by any digital onslaught that has come my way and I realized that, even thought I was just looking for my ideal morning beverage, this sturdy cup of tea was also reducing my anxiety.
