Life is a magical ride. But the truth is, when we’re caught in our everyday life hustle, or in the horror of what’s currently happening in the world… life doesn’t always feel that whimsical. So, how can you add more magic to your everyday life? Read ahead to find out.
Through mindfulness, conscious living and the lifestyle you choose, as well as your thoughts and habits, you decide whether life manifests for you as a fun and fulfilling journey, or as a cold and challenging test you keep on failing somehow.
7 ways in which you can add magic to your everyday life, today:
1 – Breath Work
The first thing we do when we are born, way before we learned to talk, walk, think… is breathe. Breathing IS life. Breathing allows our Soul to inhabit our body. Through this rather simple unconscious act of giving the world and taking from the world, you can learn so much!
When you become mindful about your breathing, you can reduce anxiety, ground your mind and emotions amidst fights or arguments and become the master of your reactions. Moreover, through breath work, you can direct your energy, focus your spell work, enter deep meditative states and even get naturally high!
If you’re interested in deep breathing methods, but also if you’re battling anxiety or insomnia, I recommend apps such as HeadSpace, iBreathe or Breathwrk.
2 – Keep track of your dreams
How can we ignore the fact that in 2021, in a “Science is GOD” society, we still don’t understand the entire process of dreaming, the function of dreams as well as the role it serves.
For thousands of years, humans have pondered the meaning of dreams. Numerous civilizations, religions, philosophies and esoteric practices look at dreams as a medium between our realm, and another (may it be the realm of God, Gods, Spirits, etc).
We’re asleep almost ⅓ of our lives, so paying attention to your dreams and reclaiming your inner mystic is key to living a truly magical life (awake or asleep!). Personally, dreams play a major role in my life, as I have a vivid imagination and a deep interest in understanding the messages of my psyche.
Get yourself a journal to keep track of your dreams and write down your oniric visions every morning as you wake up. The more you do this, the more vivid your dreams will get, and the more aware you’ll become while dreaming, which could help you lucid dream as an example.

3 – Reconnect with nature
One of the more gratifying and instant ways you can add magic to your everyday life is to spend time in nature.
If you live in a big city like me, going to the forest or to the mountain may not be something you can do or everyday. Why not look for your nearest park? Take note of the plants and trees you encounter in the street. You could even bring nature indoors by adopting a plant.
To learn more about working with plants in synchronicity with the cycles of nature, I recommend a book by Ally Sands, master herbalist, green witch and founder of Aquarian Soul. Divided into chapters on protection, love, abundance, healing and personal power, the book is the perfect guide for new witches or those looking to learn more about plant magic.
4 – Drink tea
One of the pinnacles of my day is usually tea time, either in the morning or late at night. Part of a sacred self-care routine, tea can help us relax both physically and spiritually.
If you ever watched the animated tv show Ang, The Last Airbender, you must’ve paid attention to the wise Iroh and how his tea time is sacred and “unfuckable” with. The reason for that is that tea is the perfect balance of the 4 elements: Fire (to boil the water), Air (to cool down the tea, as well as the steam), Water and Earth (herbs).
Next time you want to add some magic in your life, sit down, grab yourself a cup as aesthetically pleasing and spiritually charged like this Witche’s Brew mug.
5 – Gratitude
Gratitude deserves a book (or an entire library) on its own. Being grateful is key to most of our modern problems. When you take time to feel thankful for what you have, no matter how little, the Universe will bless you with more!
A great and easy way to add magic to your life is to keep a gratitude list and make it a habit of noting things you’re grateful during the day. Let’s start now. Out loud, name 10 things you’re grateful for at the moment.
6 – Color magic
We use color magic every single day, without even being aware of it at times. Intuitively choosing a blue shirt for a presentation day, wearing black when we want to blend in at the groceries, putting on red lipstick when we’re out on a date… Colors have amazing magical properties, and they’re much more potent if you consciously use them!
First, I recommend you understand the symbolism and esoteric meaning of each color. Based on these correspondences, make sure to incorporate colors into your wardrobe, house, desk, work environment and life in general.
7 – Align with the cosmic rhythm of life
We are part of an interconnected infinite Universe, governed by ancestral laws. The cyclic and rhythmic nature of the world is like the swing of a pendulum, the waning and waxing of the moon, the life and death of all things… it is constantly around us, and we can either resist, or join the dance.
By aligning with the cosmos, we are able to move with much more clarity, guidance and confidence. We become happy, healthy and successful individuals who manifest effortlessly, and (most importantly) enjoy the fruits of their manifestations because they are content, serene and “complete”.
Astrology is a great holistic and spiritual tool when it comes to giving you a deep sense of inner-knowing, as well as adding more magic to your everyday life. Don’t study just your Sun sign, looking at all your natal astrological placements, as well as your transits and return charts can help you tremendously.
