Self Love is such a hot topic right now because we are all in desperate need of it! We wear ourselves down, push ourselves through, rise up all the dang time – it is hard out there! If you don’t take time to take care of ourselves – we will burn out and spend weeks or months depressed, eating wrong, and Netflixing. Trust us, we know from experience!
This super simple self-love spell is designed to help you focus on you and all the love and gratitude in your life. You don’t need a ton of magical ingredients – if you just have one candle (or candle app on your phone) and this spell will work. So take a few moments to cast this simple self-love spell and connect deeper to all you have.
First, let’s talk a little about the items you will be using for this spell.
- Pink Candle – pink connects to the color of love and is ideal but any candle you have will work or a candle app on your phone!
- Rose Oil or any other anointing oil you have
- An Orange stick or any other slightly pointy tools to carve into the candle
- Incense of your choice – myrrh, jasmine, or rose are all great choices
- Rose quartz crystal
Now, Let’s get into the spell!
Cleanse and anoint a pink candle. I used water to cleanse, and rose oil to anoint. You can also inscribe the candle with a heart or with the word love, or anything else you’re trying to manifest. You can burn myrrh, jasmine or rose incense, as all are excellent for promoting self-love. You can also hold a rose quartz in your left hand to amplify the effects.
Focus on the flame of your candle for a few moments, and then close your eyes and take a some deep, meditative breaths. Focusing on your heart chakra, visualize that with every breath in you’re breathing in love and light, and with every breath out your heart is growing larger than before. I am always reminded of the end of Dr. Seuss’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas:
“And what happened, then? Well, in Whoville they say – that the Grinch’s small heart grew three sizes that day.”
Make like The Grinch and keep doing this until you feel your heart about to burst with love and gratitude. You should begin to feel deeply relaxed and centered, and feel a loving warmth all around you. You may also feel a vibration or heat coming off of your rose quartz. When you are ready, state the following:
There is endless love all around me,
There is endless love inside of me,
I see myself as the beautiful soul that I am,
I am aware that I play an important role in the Universe,
Guide me on my path toward raising my vibration and reaching my highest self,
Clear my mind and heart of negativity, and fill me with radiant love and light,
I forgive myself for my shortcomings, and recognize that I am growing every day,
I love myself most of all, and fill my cup first,
As I can only truly help others after helping myself,
I know that I am as worthy of my own love as I am worthy of the love of others,
Thank you, and so it is.
Let your candle burn all the way down. For added benefits, perform this ritual on a Friday, calling on Archangel Anael, ruler of Venus, to encircle protection and assist you in your work.
