Make your Thanksgiving extra magical with these 10 simple ideas.
Thanksgiving is a celebration of gratitude and abundance.
Sagittarius season is an expansive, generous time and Thursday is traditionally associated with wealth.
Here are ten simple spells, rituals, and other ways to work your magic on this cozy holiday.
1. Infuse your food with positive intentions.
To work some Thanksgiving kitchen witchery, while preparing any dish, send thoughts of harmony and peace into it. Visualize the food pulsating with blindingly bright light and loving vibrations.
2. Make a gratitude jar.
Celebrate all that you’re thankful for this Thanksgiving with a gratitude jar. Find a receptacle you love (it could be an actual jar, a sea grass basket with a lid, or something else). Alone or with loved ones, write things you’re grateful for on strips of paper and put them in the jar. Include big things (like your loved ones), small things (like Earl Grey tea), and universal things (like the beauty of a sunrise).
This is a simple ritual, but a powerful one. The more we focus on our blessings, the more blessings we magnetize.
3. Make pumpkin martinis.
4. Cleanse and bless your space with cinnamon incense smoke.
Before your Thanksgiving gathering, or in the morning as your own personal abundance and gratitude ritual, smudge your home with cinnamon incense. This will create sacred space by establishing high and sweet vibrations.
5. Bless the table as you set it.
While setting the table before your Thanksgiving feast, be sure that you move around the table in a clockwise direction. As you arrange each place setting, envision it filled with golden light and call on the goddess of the harvest to infuse it with the energies of prosperity, harmony, and joy.
6. Secretly surround everyone in light.
During the gathering, while others are talking and bustling around you, take a moment to relax and send light to everyone at your gathering. One at a time, mentally surround each person with a sphere of visualized golden light. As you do so, wish them blessings of abundance, happiness, and health.
7. Lift and shift the vibe with flowers.
Fresh flowers always improve the vibration of a room. Choose any flowers that call to you, or check out this post for the specific magical and metaphysical properties of various types of flowers.
8. Play harmonizing music.
Music never fails to shift energy. Certain types of music are particularly suited to harmonizing the environment and promoting happiness and joy. For a holiday gathering, classical guitar or Indian raga music would both be excellent choices.
9. Bless the space with sound.
Before your Thanksgiving gathering, or just to bless your space on this magical day, move around each room and area of your home with a lovely sounding chime or bell. As the sound rings out, sense and envision the waves of sound powerfully raising and harmonizing the vibration of the space. Drums, rattles, and shakers can also help clear negativity while moving energy around in a healthy way.
10. Add a secret ingredient.
A drop or two of a flower essence can turn any Thanksgiving dish or beverage into something magical. Mustard flower essence will help keep spirits high and conversations joyful. White chestnut flower essence promotes presence and inner peace. And rock rose flower essence can soothe anxiety and help smooth rough edges and mitigate family drama.
