Hi, my loves!
Today I am going to be talking about my magical night routine. I call it magical because I have been practicing being more mindful and bringing subtle witch rituals into my life.
To start my night routine, I take off my makeup as soon as I can. I used to hate taking my makeup off but recently my skin has improved drastically (due to Alani Nu) and I don’t feel so self-aware of my troubled skin anymore. I am so happy now to remove my makeup. I use a simple makeup wipe to remove whatever makeup is on and then I do my normal skincare routine. I’ve added in a step, which is using a black onyx facial roller. I purchased this at my local metaphysical store and I love it!
I will sometimes make a special hot chocolate drink that adds cinnamon and vanilla extract as well Himalayan sea salt and turmeric. It is a delicious way to end the day and curbs my cravings for super sweet treats at night.
After this, I will go into my bedroom and turn on my essential oil diffuser. I typically put in a calming blend such as lavender and cedar wood or stress away from Young Living. I usually will wipe down my surfaces each night and tidy my room. It is something that has been truly beneficial for me because my mind does not need to look at a cluttered space and I like seeing everything in the proper place.
Lately, I’ve been working slowly on writing a book – the one I’ve promised for ages (basically a guide to all things self-care/spiritual/lovely)! It is finally coming together but I am trying to decide if I want to release it as a book or as a course guide for an online course I’d love to teach. We will see, maybe it can be both! So, I’ll work on that for an hour or so each night but I don’t like to stay up too late anymore so I try to reign it in by 10 PM at the latest.
I will then sit down and do an angel card reading. I know it may seem late in the day to do an angel card reading but personally, my energy needs angels the most when it is at the end of the day because this is typically when my mind is the most receptive to receiving messages because I am about to be dreaming soon and I receive many messages through dreams.
Depending on the message, I may now meditate about it or try to journal or at least focus my attention on what the message that came through said. Sometimes (can’t lie) I will fall asleep meditating but often I will try to remain in my routine and will grab a crystal intuitively from my collection and will try to work with it as well before bed. Malachite is a crystal I am super sensitive to, and works well for me to receive messages – so try to pick a crystal you can work with over time but remember to cleanse them so they continue to assist your energetic needs.
I find stretching before bed is important or doing light yoga. I put on some zen music and try not to think of too much. I’ll often apply essential oils topically at this point and try to relax. I really have been connecting with my oils lately and I am so grateful to have them in my life for supporting me. After stretching, I will brush my teeth and sometimes shower if I feel I need to relax even more.
Lastly, I will write down a spell. This spell is usually regarding something I want to occur in my dream like healing or a message I want to be revealed there. Other times it is to try to wake up in a happy state or something on those lines. I’ve found each spell works when I put in a conscious effort and expect it to happen. It is all about energy work.
Then it is lights out and off to bed after I drink some lemon water to make sure I stay hydrated during my rest.
If you have any rituals you do, you should leave me yours in the comments! I love to hear about other people’s routines and I hope you enjoyed reading about mine.
