How to create your own intention ritual

Creating your own ritual to set your intention and “send it out to the universe” can make a huge difference in what you attract into your life.  Here are some basics to get your started.  Rituals can be as simple, or as extravagant as you like.  It’s all about what resonates and feels right for you.  It’s worth taking some time to completely identify what it is you want, and acknowledge any resistance within you.  Trust your intuition.

Let’s break it down into two parts: clear & create.


First clear any negativity or doubt surrounding you, or within you.  There are some very simple ways to cleanse your energy. Choose the one, or two (e.g. bath, then smudging) that most resonate with you.  Really know what it is you’d like to release, and feel it leaving your body and energy while clearing.

Salt water – a quick dip in the ocean, or a soak in the tub with some sea salt in it will draw out the negative energy from yourself.  You can also wash away any doubt, by washing your hands in a bowl of salt water at the end of your ritual.

Smudging –  using a smudge stick (generally dried sage) letting the smoke cleanse yourself and your space.  Make sure the area is well ventilated.

Cleansing sprays – sprays energised with crystals, or essential oils that you can use for your space and your aura.

Visualisation – using white light, bubbles, roses or whatever resonates with you to cleanse your energy through meditation or visualisation.


Now, to create your own magic and to attract what you want into yourself and your life, you need to be clear on what it is that you want, really feel it, know what the feeling is once you’ve attracted what you want in your life, without any doubt.

Candle – Light a candle, focusing on your intention and inviting in your guides, angels, the elements, whatever energy it is that you feel is needed.

Words – Words are powerful.  Write down your intention and/or speak it aloud.  It could be as simple as ‘I allow………’, or it can be more specific to you and you situation.   If you write it down, you can burn it (safely), bury it, or store it in a place with the energy you’ve created (e.g. Intention jar).

Crystal/Talisman – You can use a crystal, or charge a piece of jewellery or object with the energy of your intention during your ritual.  This can then be stored with your written intention, or kept with you as both a reminder of what you want to create, and something to keep the energy of your ritual with you, attracting that higher vibration.

Finally, thank all energies, crystals etc involved, blow out your candle (or let it safely burn out), and ground yourself.  To ground yourself, walk barefoot on the earth, perfect for outdoor rituals, or imagine roots growing from your feet to the centre of the earth.
