The summer can be a tough time for many of us. With the heat, the crime rate rising, and food and gas prices on the rise, it's easy to get overwhelmed. But don't worry, spiritual self-care is here to help. Self-care magic helps us navigate through life and enhances what we already have. The top three super simple spiritual summer must-haves are: Crystals, Salt, and Sigils. I know, I know it sounds super basic but hear me out. Crystals are a great way to stay connected to the earth and their energy can help keep us grounded during chaotic times. Salt is another great way to cleanse and protect our space. It's also great for making magical concoctions like salt water baths and scrubs. Sigils are a great way to focus our intention and can be used for everything from protection to manifestation.
Crystals, stones, and gems are our spiritual shiny helpers. Everything in the Universe (including us) consists of energy. That means that we're all literally vibrating to our unique and specific tone, cool right?!! Well, crystals also do this, and more so than other objects, by wearing or using crystals within our everyday tasks we can alter and enhance our energy's vibrations. This can help us to control the things we normally have difficulty doing without their support. As a person, your vibration is quite unstable and readily changed at any frequency. The circumstances we encounter everyday change constantly as a result of interactions with other people, social media, the news, traffic, the weather, good news, and bad news.
The energy frequency of minerals, on the other hand, is quite stable. It does not fluctuate. Why? They're structured of molecules in a precise, perfectly repeating geometric formation that repeats itself regularly. They also keep their absolute stability without effort. The opposite of our ever-changing, volatile bitch-ass human nature. Now that we know why crystals are our friends, how do we possibly choose amongst them all?!!? Well, we've chosen three to start your summer journey with: Ameythest, Campo del Cielo meteorite, and Lava stones.

When most humans think about a bath, they visualize a warm, soothing tub full of water with maybe some candles and a glass of wine, but a spiritual bath is something else and still all that fun of course. Spiritual baths have been used in many civilizations to cleanse the spirit, purify the mind, and ultimately cure the chakras / cleanse the aura field to heal the soul. The concept of a spiritual bath is supposed to aid in the removal of any blockage that might lead to more serious diseases. Spiritual baths are a wonderful method to unwind and relax; taking this little amount of time out of your day may help you relax and regain some equilibrium in your life. When we are feeling busy, it is vital to set aside some time for ourselves to rejuvenate. This may be accomplished as part of your weekly routine or during your day of self-care.
Whether you add flowers or essential oils to your favorite spiritual bath, it's relaxing and emotionally healing. Roses and Sunflowers are great for bringing love and joy into your daily life. Patchouli and mint extremely are grounding and support our Root chakra, not to mention attract abundance. Even Milk and Honey are staples in spiritual baths for nurturing and healing both your body and spirit. Now there are different kinds of salt for specific spiritual desires. Himalayan salt for love and purifying or Dead sea salt for enhancement and cleansing; salt is always the unifying ingredient. One of the first things you'll be advised to try if you're new to the spiritual witchy life is salt. Yes, it's the same salt that you put on your food and no this isn't a joke. The name derives from the Greek words halos, "salt," and ite, "stone." It is pronounced "hay-light". Salt's metaphysical characteristics are a result of a variety of influences, including its roles in the body, food preparation, and business, as well as its ties to the sea and moon.

Sigils are a great way to focus our intention and can be used for everything from protection to manifestation. A sigil is a symbol that is used as a representation of something else. In the context of magic, a sigil is an emblem used to represent a magical goal. Thanks to modern witches and Chaos magic, we can create sigils out of phrases and charge them with our intentions. When we create sigils, we are essentially taking our desire and turning it into a workable image or symbol. This image can then be carried with us, placed on our altar, or used as a screensaver to help us keep our goals at the forefront of our minds. Creating sigils is a simple process that anyone can do. All you need is a piece of paper and something to write with. Start by brainstorming a list of goals or desires that you would like to manifest in your life. Once you have your list, it's time to start creating your sigils. If you don't want to create your own there are always many out there for you to recreate and use. I use sigils on my divination decks, notebooks, and spell work honestly I can probably name where I don't include them far quicker than naming every place I use a sigil.

Overall, self-care magic is a great way to navigate through life and enhance what we already have. The top three super simple spiritual summer must-haves are crystals, salt, and sigils. By incorporating these into your spiritual summer self-care routine, you can cleanse your mind, body, and spirit, and manifest your desires!
