Last night while working late from my sofa, I was reading the Coveteur and discovered this article about the current witchery trend that's going on right now. I felt like it was really spot on. Astrology, crystals, intuition, incense, its all very fashion forward. Decorating with spirituality has been especially popular as of late but it's kind of always been around. Feng shui has been teaching us for centuries just how to treat our home in an effort to make the most of your life.
To be honest, I've always practiced my own version of Feng Shui but it wasn't until I started incorporating my morning rituals and meditating/journaling that I noticed a HUGE change in everything. I practiced the power of prayer aka setting intentions and watched as the things that I desired began to magically unfold before my very eyes. Living in my new high rise condo is literally a dream turned into reality and it happened almost out of nowhere.
I've realized that in order to attract to you the things you desire in life, you must act as if you already have them. Living in luxury was something of a pursuit for me. I started to create little luxuries for myself as I wanted to live in luxury in every area of my life.
I put 3 simple habits in place to begin my day. . .
HARNESS THE POWER OF SAGE: I absolutely LOVE sage in my home. Every morning I light it up, open a window and let the smoke fill the air. For me, it represents a clearing of my space. Each morning when you wake up its a new day. Sage-ing your space is like a physical representation of that. I loved this girls point of view on smudging, too.
BEAUTIFY YOUR BATH TIME: I am a sucker for beautiful products and packaging. I mean, I don't like anything that isn't pretty in my bathroom. There is something luxurious about bath salts and scrubs. I keep candles all over my bath tub and try to have fresh flowers in there too. When I take a salt bath, I literally imagine the negative thoughts and stress of the day just wash away. If you don't like taking baths, learn how to turn your shower into a sanctuary.
Paying attention to self-care is the most effective way to stay productive and successful in your life. When you are tripped up by too much going on, you can't be operating as the best version of yourself so why waste your valuable time?
PURPOSEFULLY THINK POSITIVE THOUGHTS: and say positive affirmations out loud every morning. Today will be a great day! I am going to win today! I'm ready to kick butt and accomplish my goals with effectiveness! What is for me, will not miss me! I could go on and on. I have lists that I read from in the mornings. I know it sounds silly but its scientific. Thoughts become things, what you think about is where your energy goes. When I am around friends or family and they say negative things about themselves, I say "don't talk about my friend like that".
Be the person that lifts yourself up so you can lift others up too. Add these 3 little habits to your day and feel the essence of gratitude and abundance, its so luxurious.
