Making your home more magical!
There are so many ways to make your home magical. Home Magic is about creating spaces for energy to flow and transcend, to protect and elevate the vibration. Magic in your home is the first place to start to help enhance the magic in your life. You probably already do some of these, but here are a few ideas to bring some more magic into your home.
Hang a dream catcher over your bedroom window or hanging over your bed
The dream catcher has its origins in Native American cultures. It illustrates a spider web that is believed to trap our dreams and nightmares during the night. Then, by morning, the rays of sunlight burn and destroy the bad dreams. Whereas the good dreams caught in the web will have a safe passage through the feathers to the dreamer’s mind. If you want to get a dream catcher, make sure you honor their origins by choosing one that is hand made from natural materials like authentic feather, wood, thread, real gems, and stones weaved into the net. Many Native Americans cultures say that their sacred dream catchers have lost their meaning in their commercialisation. Be rest assured that the authentic dream catcher will protect you from nightmares and strengthen good dreams into you.
Create a sound healing experience with Wind Chimes
Ancient wind chimes were made of bones, seashells or even bamboo. Farmers in Bali would hang bamboo Wind Chimes in the rice fields to ward off evil spirits and scare away birds. Nowadays, you can find Wind Chimes made of wood, metal, glass, and bells. Having a Wind Chimes allows Mother Nature to play her soothing, melodious, healing music in your home. Not only are they great purifiers, but Wind Chimes also have a direct positive effect on our emotions. They help reduce stress, promote calmness and a peaceful state of mind. They also enhance our ability to listen and encourage creativity.
Get yourself a Diffuser and Essential Oils
I always think of essential oils as great supporters of health, whether in your physical, emotional, or financial health. There is always a scent that can assist you in upgrading your current health state. Essential oils by their aromatic compound have the power to enhance and alter the chemical makeup of our body. They are educators of our cells gifted to us by Mother Earth. They can radiate courage, confidence, joy, and more laughter into your home. Having them around your house means that you allow yourself to live a healthier life and that you are accepting the precious gifts of Gaia.
Add magic in your daily meals with Kitchen Herbs
Plant essences work at different levels in our bodies and interact in very clever ways with our cells, fats, and tissues. Pure essences have the power to provide healing to your physical, mental, but also spiritual body. Here are some of my favourite magical herbs to use in the kitchen!
Basil for when you need to switch your mind off: Basil is a thinker which is why it does wonder for mental fatigue. Respiratory problems and nervous tension are other conditions that Basil can assist with.

Adorn your space with Candles and Crystals
There are so many benefits to using candles and crystals on a regular basis. Having them around your house will enhance the magic in your life to another level! Candles bring a whole new different ambiance to a setting. The warmth of the fire, the flame flickering is inviting and will bring a sense of reassurance and peace to anyone in that environment. They bring light and hope into your life. Candle-gazing is also a great way to end your day.
Crystals are also great supporters of emotions! All crystals have a purpose and different abilities. They can make you get rid of heavier energies in your energetical field. Others will be charged with pure cosmic light that can bring you clarity, insights, and peace. Having them in your surrounding can also emanate high vibrational frequencies from Mother Earth into your beautiful home. You can place protective crystals and repellents of lower entities near your doors and windows to keep them away.
“There is a magic in that little world, home; it is a mystic circle that surrounds comforts and virtues never known beyond its hallowed limits.”

Set an altar
An altar is a private, sacred, and prot
ected space that reflects your own unique magic where you can really feel the magician that you are. You will see your altar change with time as you evolve. Your altar can be used as a safe space for you to find healing, inspiration, do rituals, ceremonies, tarot readings, spell work and meditation. You will intuitively know where to put your altar, it will feel peaceful, joyous, and safe.
What to include in your altar (feel free to change it in the way that feels more like you ):
1. Your altar should feel clean, as well as the space around it. Declutter as much as you can. You can use a cloth dampened in sea salt water to wash your altar table, chair, and surroundings before customising it.
2. Generate a balance from the 4 elements:
AIR (feather, diffuser)
WATER (bowl or chalice filled with rainwater)
EARTH (crystals, sand or salt bowl, herbs)
3. You can choose a cloth to cover your altar that bring you positive emotions and that feels most like you.
4. Design your altar with various tools and objects that bring your magic to life:
Amulet, pendulum, and wand
Tarot and oracle cards
Charms, seashells, stones, and crystals
Herbs and essential oils
Book or journal where you write your spells and rituals
Mortar, cauldron, bottles, and jars
5. You can place a picture of a loved one, a deity, an angel, or any sigil or symbol that is sacred to you.
I hope this helps you turn your space into a magical sanctuary!
