When it comes to goal setting, many of us tend to set goals that are related to our physical selves. We want to lose weight, get in shape, save money etc. While these are all great goals, we often forget about our spiritual and mental selves. This year, why not set magickal intentions for yourself as well?
1. Gain Protection
Staying safe is something that should be a main priority for everyone, but especially those of us who are solitary. We spend more time alone with ourselves than we would if we were part of group, so it is important to ensure the safety of our mental and physical well being. This can be done by performing magickal protection rituals and spells throughout the year.
2. Connect with Your Higher Self
It is said that our higher self is our connection to the divine. By connecting with it, we can get a better understanding of our purpose in life and what steps we need to take to reach our goals. The best way to connect with your higher self is to do a meditation where you connect with your body and find the stillness within. Once you have found that stillness, allow it to open up into nothingness before allowing yourself to be filled with something divine that will give you guidance.
3. Perform Past Life Regression
Not many people think about their past lives. In fact, most people have no memories of their past lives at all! However, it is said that everyone has lived a few past lives and they can influence who we are today. By performing a past life regression, you will be able to see what your previous lives were like and hopefully gain some insight into why certain parts of our current lives are difficult.
4. Connect with Nature
One of the best ways to connect with the divine is by connecting with nature. This can be done by spending time outside in nature, meditating while surrounded by plants or even working with elemental magick. All of these things will help you to connect with the natural world and the divine.
5. Perform Self-Dedication Rituals
By performing self dedication rituals, you are opening yourself up to the possibility of bringing positive things into your life. Think about it like this: if you dedicate yourself to using magick for good, then you will be more likely to perform magick with good intentions which will lead to positive results. Dedication rituals could be anything, for example I chose to dedicate myself to nature this past year and it has brought wonderful things into my life because of it!
6. Strengthen Your Connection to the Divine
This one is pretty self explanatory. If you want to achieve your magickal goals, then you need to have a strong connection to the divine. This can be done by performing rituals and spells that connect you to the divine, praying or even just spending time in nature. As long as you are strengthening your connection, you should be well on your way to success!
7. Perform Spells and Rituals
While it is important to set goals for yourself, I would suggest that you don't just think about the magickal goals that you want to achieve. You should also perform spells and rituals that will help you reach those goals. This can be done by following a simple step-by-step guide on how to cast a spell or it can even be handmade if you are feeling adventurous! The more magickal rituals and spells that you perform, the closer you will get to reaching your goal.
8. Practice Mindfulness
One of my favorite ways to achieve personal growth is by practicing mindfulness. Mindfulness is the practice of being present in the moment and it can be done by simply sitting down, closing your eyes and focusing on your breath. When thoughts come into your mind, acknowledge them and then let them go. By doing this, you are training your mind to stay in the present moment which in turn will help you to be more in tune with nature, the divine and your higher self!
9. Start a Ritual Journal
I find that keeping a ritual journal is very important when it comes to achieving personal growth. By writing down each ritual or spell that you perform in your journal, you can look back on what worked and what didn't. This will help you to better understand your personal magickal journey and what steps you need to take in order to reach your goals.
10. Believe in Yourself
Finally, the most important thing that you need to do in order to achieve your magickal goals is believe in yourself. You need to have faith that you can do whatever it is that you set your mind to. Magick is all about energy and if you put enough positive energy into your goals, then you will be able to achieve them!
So there you have it! These are just a few tips for setting magickal intentions for the new year. I hope that they help you on your journey and that you achieve all of the goals that you set for yourself! Blessed be.
