Grab a piece of paper and one white candle for this week’s Witchtip. This spell focuses on inviting positive people, opportunities, or habits into your life. Think about healthy and uplifting things you wish to enjoy more of and write them down on your paper. As you make your list, begin by writing down “I bring in” and then note what it is you’re calling on (ie: job growth, supportive friendships, a supportive partner, confidence). Once you’ve finished, hold the list up to your heart for a moment, close your eyes and take deep breaths and allow positive feelings to fill your heart and aura. Imagine yourself surrounded by love and try to send love out to the universe. Then read your words out loud (don’t forget to state that you wish to call in the things noted on your list). Next, take your list and place it face up under a bowl of water and place your candle on top. Finally, light your candle while saying “So be it.” Take a moment of quiet and thank the universe (or your higher power) for working with you.
