Last month, I introduced you to various tools in my spiritual toolkit. This month, I’ll continue with part two of this series, exploring a blend ritual spell kits, metaphysical practices that deepen the connection to oneself and the universe.

While I don’t claim expertise in this field, my ongoing spiritual journey over the past year has provided valuable insights that I’m eager to share.

This journey has led to enlightenment, increased introspection, a heightened appreciation for self-care, and a newfound awareness of the unseen energies in the world.

Whether labeled as spiritual, metaphysical, or dismissed as mere whimsy, these practices serve to support individuals in their quest for purpose while offering solace within.

I firmly believe that at their core, these practices assist in dismantling barriers, fostering self-forgiveness, alleviating worry, fostering energy exchange, instilling trust in a higher power, and nurturing organic confidence growth.

By sharing my exploration, I hope to dispel any preconceived notions or doubts surrounding metaphysical tools or traditions. After all, I too once approached them with skepticism.

So, let’s take a moment to inhale positivity, exhale negativity, and dive into the realm of the metaphysical.


The term “meditate” refers to engaging in deep thought or contemplation, a practice that has profoundly impacted my life. I aim to integrate at least five minutes of meditation into my morning routine, although sessions lasting 15 to 30 minutes are typically considered ideal. While meditation often involves sitting with closed eyes, various techniques exist. Crystals can also complement meditation, depending on one’s current focus or goals.

The objective of meditation is to achieve mental clarity and calmness, but it offers numerous additional benefits. Feeling like you’re “not good” at meditating is a common concern, but like any skill, meditation requires practice. With time, you’ll learn not to judge yourself for intrusive thoughts and instead acknowledge and move past them. Curious? Explore these ten guided meditations for various situations.

Spiritual Readings

There are numerous types of readings available, but I recommend approaching each with a degree of skepticism. Each practice endeavors to provide insight into your past, present, and future. If you decide to partake in a reading, thoroughly research the practitioner beforehand and approach the experience with an open mind. The goal is to make these readings enjoyable, so try not to become overly fixated on the outcome.

Different kinds of readings: 

  • Tarot: The practice, known as taromancy, utilizes tarot cards to assess potential outcomes and their influences on individuals or events.
  • Palmistry: Also referred to as chiromancy, palmistry involves the interpretation of the lines and features of the palm to predict the future or characterize individuals.
  • Astrology: Utilizing your birth chart, astrology readings offer guidance or advice on how to navigate and leverage planetary influences based on your birth time and location.
  • Aura: Each individual emits energy, known as an aura, which possesses a distinct vibration. Aura readings provide insight into the colors and fluctuations of this energy, offering a snapshot of your current energetic state.


I previously discussed using sage and palo santo to purify yourself and your surroundings in the spiritual toolkit post. Here’s a concise recap on the practice of smudging. Embrace those good vibes!

Affirmations, Intentions, and Mantras 

You always start with an intention, which answers the question of what you desire from a particular moment or from life itself (e.g., be kinder to myself or land that new job). Then, you can employ mantras and affirmations to support your intention.

Mantras are repetitive sounds or words that help adjust your vibration. For instance, the sacred mantra “OM,” frequently used in yoga classes, translates to “source” in Sanskrit. It sets the tone for the practice, aligning with your intention.

Affirmations, on the other hand, serve as powerful self-love tools to reaffirm your intention. Examples include “I am worthy of love,” “I am confident,” and “I am capable.” Ultimately, it’s about setting a goal and leveraging your spiritual connection to aid in its achievement.

Feeling a bit overwhelmed and seeking something less metaphysical?

Stay tuned for part three of this series, focusing on self-care practices that nurture your spirit. In the upcoming post, I’ll delve into yoga, gratitude, journaling, mindfulness, and connection. Is there anything else you’d like to explore?
