Make Thanksgiving extra magical this year with these 10 simple and delightful ideas.
Thanksgiving is a celebration of gratitude and abundance.
Thursday, after all, is the day of the week traditionally suited wealth and abundance magic. (Coincidence? I think not.)
Here are ten delightful spells, rituals, and other ways to work your magic on this sweet and cozy holiday.
1. Infuse food with positive intentions.
Work some Thanksgiving kitchen witchery! While preparing any dish, send thoughts of harmony and peace into it. Visualize it pulsating with blindingly bright light that brings all its molecules into alignment with these 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 cornucopia basket, a rustic wooden bucket, or something else). Alone or with others, 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 yet powerful abundance ritual: the more we focus on our blessings, the more blessings we magnetize.
3. Make pumpkin martinis.
4. Smudge with cinnamon incense.
Before your Thanksgiving gathering, or in the morning as your own personal abundance and gratitude ritual, smudge your home with cinnamon incense. Feel as if you’re blessing everything you see with sweetness and gratitude.
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 love light.
During the gathering, while others are talking and bustling around you, take a moment to relax and send love light to each person present. See them in the most beautiful light possible and surround them with a sphere of visualized golden light. Wish them blessings of abundance, happiness, and health.
7. Enlist floral allies.
Fresh flowers always add a powerful element of peace and presence to a room. To purify the environment while aligning it with the purest vibration of love, choose a bouquet containing white roses.
8. Play harmonizing music.
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.
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 keep spirits high and conversations joyful. White chestnut flower essence will promote presence and inner peace. And rock rose flower essence will soothe anxiety and help smooth rough edges related to family dysfunction.
Wishing you a most magical holiday!
