When you practice any type of magic you are sending out concentrated forms of energy and this can have an effect on the entire world around you. Taking a few minutes to prepare yourself can help put you in the proper frame of mind for this important magical work. Below are my favorite ways to get ready.
Prior to your ritual or magical work, prepare yourself by drawing a nice relaxing bath. Add a hand full of sea salt to get your charges set where they need to be. Light a few candles, turn off the light and relax. Clear your mind of the junk you have picked up throughout the day. Showers can also help refresh your spirit. Visualize the water washing all the negativity away from you.
If you don’t have time for the cleansing options above, simply spend a few minutes meditating before doing any magical work. The bottom line is that if your mind is clear and your body has released its stress from the day, it becomes much easier to achieve the positive outcome you want from your ritual or spellwork.
