You don’t need to change your whole life to be more spiritual. If you’d like your life to be or feel a little more spiritual, we have 12 magickal rituals for you to introduce into your life, very easily.
You can start by introducing little rituals and learning about new topics that interest you. Chances are, that if you drawn to the spiritual world and the reason you are here, reading this article, is because your soul is craving that connection to the spiritual world.
There’s so much you can learn and so much for you to discover! Don’t get overwhelmed by thoughts like “where do I start” or “what do I do” etc – baby steps.
These baby steps are outlined below, take them at your own pace but they’re actually pretty simple things to make your life a little more spiritual.
My favourite way to feel connected to the spiritual world, is by lighting fire. As a Leo, fire is my element and one I am really drawn to.
Smoke has clarifying and purifying properties, which means it cleans the air as well as the negative energies, away from you.
This is just an example however, there are many, many areas you can explore and learn more about, to introduce the more spiritual, magickal world into your life and routine:
1. Find a Peaceful Activity
Never underestimate the power of a clear mind and a rested body. It’s what makes you feel yourself, restoring you back into the person that you are deep within.
Find an activity that allows you to do just that. You may have noticed many spiritual people like yogis or buddhas, monks, are in fact quiet in nature, as well as spiritually connected.
The beauty of the spiritual world is found within, when you are still and listen to your inner voice, your soul. Find your quiet activity.
That could be:
Meditation is the best one to start with, as it lets you shut out the chaos of the outside world and focus on just your present moment here and now. It will also help you find that voice within, it will be clear louder and eventually you will feel more connected with your emotions and the spiritual world.
2. Read Topics You’re Interested In
The spiritual world is as wide as the galaxy. There are so many captivating topics, and I bet there is one that you found and wanted to delve deeper into, to learn about the whole spiritual world altogether.
If there is that one specific topic, read into it, get books and films and really educate yourself learning all you can about it.
If you’re not too sure where to start or what spiritual topics to start with, you can use these as a guide to start with:
- Crystal healing
- 7 Chakras
- Ceremonial cacao
- Your zodiac sign and natal chart
We included some useful resources at the bottom of this article.
3. Learn About Your Star Sign
The stars will tell you your future.
Well, not literally. But your star/sun sign can tell a lot about your character, personality, explaining why you react to situations in a certain way.
Learning who you are as a person using your zodiac sign, can help you with connecting to the spiritual world massively. You need to know who you are, where you come from (your ancestors) and really get to know yourself before you can enter the spiritual world.
You need to ACCEPT and LOVE yourself.
Try and learn about your birth chart, which will tell you more about your rising sign, 12 houses and moon sign – all these astrological factors put together pieces of you, that make you realise who you are as a person in a more definitive way.
It’s also really exciting finding all the missing puzzles of you as a character!
4. Introduce Daily Rituals Into Your Routine
Have a little “you time”.
A ritual can be lighting a candle and just switching off for a bit. Or a sensual bath with lots of candles, flower petals, essentials oils in your bath, connecting you with Pachamama, mother nature.
It could be a quiet time of the day, for you to sit down with your thoughts, maybe mediate or write in your journal. Or reading a book. Whatever helps you relax, switch off and feel away in your own little world.
Fire and smoke have been used for centuries in many rituals and ceremonies to clear the energy. Smoke has purifying properties, clearing the air in a practical sense and a more spiritual one.
If you have some negative energy lingering around, you will want to burn some sage, or an incense stick to dissolve the negativity. With clean air and aura, you can function and think more clearly.
Get into crystals if you haven’t already! They’re magical stones that help you connect with the spiritual world through energies, healing and restoring balance in your life. They absorb your intentions and help you manifest your goals.
They can be very useful with helping you store away anxieties, depression, stress or any other emotional problems you might have.
7. Practice Self-Love
This is all about your state of mind and appreciating yourself. Love yourself, you are spending the rest of your life with this person, so you need to reward “her”/“him”.
Make yourself feel loved, treasured and special. Be authentic and speak your truth, be real with yourself and always honour your needs.
This can be through writing in your journal, a bath, a massage, however you like to treat yourself.
Gratitude means being grateful for what you have, but also finding gratitude on your lower/bad days. There is always something you can find to be grateful for, and your gratitude lets the universe know that you are worth of great things coming to you.
The feeling of gratitude will help awaken you to how much you have in your life already. How many great things you can be grateful for, and how fulfilling and rich your life is.
A great way to start is to keep a gratitude journal. Each day, write down 3 things you are grateful for.
You will quickly start to notice a difference in your perception and outlook on life and it will allow you to want less and be happy more, which is the secret to becoming more spiritual and less materialistic.
More on gratitude here.
9. Deepen Your Connection with Others
Try having deep conversations with your friends, partner or anyone you feel comfortable with. Try asking deeper questions i.e. what is the meaning of life, why are we here, what is your mission/purpose etc.
If you happen to lose friend along the way, that’s okay – it’s part of your growing process. By speaking your truth you will eventually attract people into your life that are like-minded, spirited and who are meant to cross your path and stay.
If you feel like you need a community of people to share your thoughts and truths with, we are opening a Toucan Dream Tribe community.
You can sign up here, for an all loving, peaceful and calm community for people to openly share their thoughts, feelings, fears without being judged. And hopefully making friends along the way ?
10. Be Open to New Experiences and Theories
The spiritual world is a whole new one, involving many different experiences, sensations and ideas. There are some great retreats, coaches and gurus to follow, to really experience the spiritual connection and spiritual world.
See if there are any in your local area or country, a weekend retreat of yoga, or meditation or a holistic/natural community. You will learn a lot, experience new theories and sensations, while maybe even making friends!
11. Keep a Journal
To be more spiritual, you have to feel connected and to listen to your voice. To help with your process, it’s a good idea to keep a journal and write down your thoughts as you progress.
It’s also a fun way to look back on your journey and how much you’ve grown over the weeks/months.
12. Moon Cycles
Start noticing the moon cycles and how they affect you. The moon is a powerful force. It controls our oceans tides, so naturally it affects our moods and wellbeing too.
For each phase of the moon, there is a different ritual you can perform, to help with overcoming your obstacles and attracting wanted aspects into your life, as well as letting go of what isn’t serving you. You can read about how to perform moon rituals here.
That’s all 12 rituals to make your life more spiritual. Below are some really great resources for you to start your learning journey and our favourite spiritual items that we use daily in our home/rituals.
We’ve made things even easier for you (we hope), and prepared our favourite spiritual essentials in a handy list.
