First Things First… Self Reflection
Ask yourself these questions to check in with yourself and your spirituality:
What gives my life meaning and purpose?
What gives me hope?
How do I get through tough times? Where do I find comfort?
Am I tolerant of other people’s views about life issues?
Do I make attempts to expand my awareness of different ethnic, racial, and religious groups?
Do I make time for relaxation in my day?
Do my values guide my decisions and actions?

Clear negative energy and refresh your space through smudging
Smudging is a practice that burns sacred plants to cleanse any negative energy in your body or space.
Sage is a classic ingredient to use for smudging. It purifies, relieves symptoms, increases spirituality, and releases negativity. Sage will also cleanse or charge objects, boost moods, relieve stress, and improve sleep quality.
Use oracle or tarot cards to give yourself a reading
When you’re feeling unsure about something or can’t make a decision, you may feel like you want the answer to knock on your front door. Oracle and tarot cards can help with this.
These card decks use source energy and serve as a guide to interpret the outcome based on the forces at play at the time.
Practice monthly moon rituals
Many spiritual people use the moon phases as a type of calendar for their practices. For example, many people set their intentions for the upcoming month at the new moon phase. It is the perfect time to release any stagnant energy in your life.
Moon rituals are a great time to work with your crystals, smudge your space, journal your intentions and affirmations, and take salt baths.
Use essential oils to uplift your spirit
Lavender to ease emotional stress and relax you
Jasmine to bring feelings of energy, optimism, and confidence
Peppermint to invigorate the mind and boost energy
Chamomile to soothe your mind and body
Lemon to calm and clear your mind
Cinnamon restores energy and stimulates mental focus
