If you are a true magical practitioner then magic is part of life, not something you do separate from your everyday life. Therefore magical rituals should be a part of life, which means that, for the most part, they need to be fairly simple, not requiring lots of tools, smoke, and mirrors.
If you want to have magic in your life, you have to practice magic all the time. Think that’s too hard or that you don’t have enough time to do that? Think again.
My Three Magic Rituals To Start the Day
I do at least three separate magic rituals every single day first thing, and it’s no sweat, really. Want to know what they are? Simple.
Sitting, or meditating, is one of the best ways to invite magic into your life. I sit every single morning and surround myself with quiet. I tend to sit in lotus position, because it’s a stable position and I like it, but you don’t have to. Just sit (or lie down if sitting is too uncomfortable). It doesn’t matter whether you sit for 5 minutes for 50 … just as long as you are quiet for long enough that the magic can slip into your life, between your thoughts as it were. The magic happens in the space between thoughts.
2. Greet the Day
I go out and greet the day using the Navajo Beauty Way Day Greetings every single morning before doing anything else. It’s my way of making contact with powers and beings, acknowledging their presence, making any special requests for help, and generally getting in touch with my magical allies.
3. Do a Reading
I’m usually reading some esoteric text or other, and I’ll spend a few minutes in the morning immersing myself in some good spiritual material. I like readings from Gurdjieff, Abraham-Hicks, Carlos Castaneda, Edgar Cayce, and some more esoteric authors as well. A lot of people like to pull a card from the Medicine Cards or Sacred Path Cards, or flip open an angel book to get an “angel thought” for the day. Whatever floats your boat, pull some spiritual material from somewhere to get your day started on a magical footing. Abraham has an email Quote of the Day that you can subscribe to and that can count too.
All three of these little rituals take about 30 minutes total. That’s not a whole lot of time to dedicate to living a truly magical life, and that’s about all the Universe requires to bring the magic into your life.
