33 ways to make your life magical

How to Make Your Life More Magical

1. Find Your Happiness Triggers

Begin adding magic to your life by identifying your Happiness Triggers. These are the things, activities, places, or people that trigger genuine happiness within you.

Make a list of 5-10 things that make you happy when you see or do them and then find ways to have more of that in your day to day life.

Your happiness triggers could look like:

  • Your favorite color
  • Your favorite lipstick
  • A crystal or stone
  • The scent of your favorite candle
  • Fresh flowers
  • A piece of jewelry
  • Time with your pet
  • Talking to your best friend
  • A playlist of your favorite songs

Whether it’s walks in the park, a warm cup of tea in the evening, beautiful objects in your home, or the company of loved ones, surrounding yourself with your happiness triggers is the first step toward creating a more magical life.

2. Choose a Magic Talisman

Select a talisman that holds special meaning for you and carry it whenever you need some more magic in your life. It could be a piece of jewelry, a stone, or an object that resonates with positive energy. Carry it with you as a reminder of the enchantment that exists in your life.

3. Create a New Identity

Imagine the most sparkly, confident version of yourself. Identify the qualities that person embodies and how they live their life, and start to think of yourself as being that person right now. As you practice thinking of yourself in this new way, you will gradually evolve into the magical being you aspire to be.

My program Transcendence is all about shifting your identity and creating empowering new beliefs about yourself.

4. Dream Up Your Best Life

Allow your imagination to run wild as you envision your ideal life. What does it look like? Where are you? What are you doing? Dreaming big sets the stage for creating a magical reality.

You can write these details down in your journal, or if you enjoy visualization, try this guided meditation that will help you step into your dream reality.

5. Adopt an Empowering Mantra

Once you’ve dreamed up a new identity and imagined your dream life, choose a word, affirmation, or mantra that embodies that magic you want to have. Write it down and put it somewhere you will see it often. Repeat it daily to reinforce this new version of you and manifest the magic you desire in your life.

I have hundreds of affirmations on my site if you need ideas.

6. Keep a Gratitude Journal

Cultivate an attitude of gratitude by keeping a journal where you jot down the things you’re thankful for on a daily basis. What you focus on expands, so when you spend more time feeling thankful and putting your attention on the positive things in your life you’ll start to attract more good things.

Try it for 30 days and watch as magic starts to show up in your life.

7. Drink Your Water Out of Fancy Glasses

Elevate the mundane by sipping water from fancy glasses. This simple act turns hydration into a luxurious experience, reminding you to find joy in everyday activities.

8. Avoid Complaining

Challenge yourself to refrain from complaining. Redirect your energy towards solutions and positive thoughts, transforming challenges into opportunities for growth.

Of course sometimes we do need to vent when frustrating things happen, but if you find yourself complaining about the same things over and over again then you need to either take action to fix the problem, or change your perspective on it.

Just like when you focus on gratitude you attract more things to be grateful for, when you focus on all the things that are wrong you attract more of those things.

9. Avoid Gossip

Step away from negative conversations and gossip. Surround yourself with positive energy and focus on building uplifting connections with those around you.

10. Celebrate Your Wins and Small Achievements

Acknowledge and celebrate your victories, no matter how small. Recognize how strong and skilled you are, give yourself credit for all the times you’ve stretched yourself and accomplished things you didn’t think you could.

When you really look at all the ways you’ve done hard things and overcome challenges, it shows you that you really can do anything. It helps you own and celebrate the magic you already have inside you.

11. Write a Love Letter to Yourself

Express self-love by writing a heartfelt letter to yourself. Celebrate your strengths, acknowledge your growth, and embrace the unique magic that resides within you.

If you’ve been facing a challenge lately, write a letter from the perspective of your future self who has overcome this struggle. Imagine what advice you would have, or just give yourself a pep talk.

12. Use Your ‘Fancy’ Stuff

Don’t wait for a special occasion to use your ‘fancy’ belongings. Whether it’s a luxurious perfume or elegant dinnerware, surround yourself with items that bring you joy. Wear your cutest outfits, use your expensive skincare, don’t let it sit and go to waste. Enjoy the magical things that are in your life right now!

13. Create Your Own Luck

While some people are born into better circumstances than others, being lucky is a mindset. If you believe you’re unlucky you will unconsciously self-sabotage. If you believe you’re the luckiest person in the world then you will unconsciously find ways to make amazing things happen.

Believe in your ability to create luck. Take positive actions, be open to opportunities, and watch as serendipity begins to play a role in your life.

14. Cleanse Your Space

Being surrounded by mess and clutter will suck all the magic from your life real fast. Clear the energy in your home by decluttering and cleansing your space. Keep only what you use and love. Create an environment that promotes new ideas, peace, and, most importantly, magic.

15. Turn Your Home into a Sanctuary

After you’ve cleared out any clutter and tidied your home, create a sanctuary within your home. Fill it with items that bring you genuine comfort and joy (happiness triggers!), creating a magical space where you can retreat and recharge. This doesn’t mean you have to go buy more things right now, but you can gradually make changes until your home makes you feel truly happy.

16. Create Magical Morning & Night Routines

Bookend your days with dreamy routines. Establish morning and night rituals that set a positive tone and help you transition between wakefulness and rest.

Everyone’s routine will be different and may vary from day to day, so I like to have a menu of activities that I can pick and choose from depending on my mood and time limit. Here are some good feeling activities you might add to your magical routines:

  • Meditation or visualization
  • 10 minutes of repeating affirmations or your mantra
  • Yoga or stretching
  • Reading a good book
  • A long soak in the bath
  • Gratitude journaling
  • Taking a walk

Here are some more ideas for a magical morning routine.

17. Create Daily Rituals

Rituals have the power to anchor you in the present moment and infuse your day with magic. They can make ordinary, mundane tasks meaningful and comforting. Or, they can help you integrate magical and sacred moments into your daily life.

Create daily rituals that bring you joy and fulfillment. Maybe after coming home from work you could create a ritual where you shower, put on comfy clothes, make a cup of tea, and spend 10 minutes just relaxing before you tackle any to-dos. Rituals can be elaborate or very simple, it’s really just about doing what feels good.

18. Appreciate the Little Things

Pause to appreciate the small pleasures in life. Whether it’s a beautiful sunset or the taste of your favorite treat, finding joy in the little things contributes to the overall magic of your day. What are 5-10 conveniences that you benefit from everyday that you don’t usually think about?

19. Feel Love & Appreciation for Your Body

Practice self-love by appreciating and expressing gratitude for your body. Treat it with kindness, and recognize the magic it enables you to experience every day.

Do you every feel thankful that your eyes see, that your ears hear, that your heart beats for you? Our bodies do so many miraculous things for us every moment of our lives, and we rarely take time to be thankful. When you really stop to think about how incredible your body is, you’ll see how magical you are.

20. Treat Your Body Like a Temple

Nourish your body with wholesome foods, exercise, and adequate rest. Treating your body like a temple enhances your well-being and contributes to the magic of your existence.

This also means listening to your body when it tells you that you need less or more of something.

21. Take Hot Girl Walks

Walks are a great way to exercise your body and relieve stress, but going for a walk can also be a source of inspiration. Getting out of your usual environment and away from your to-do list can let creative ideas start flowing. Move your body and let the magic of the world unfold before you with every step.

22. Really Notice the Beauty of Nature

Take time to immerse yourself in nature’s beauty. What colors do you see, what sounds do you hear, how does it smell? Whether it’s a serene forest, a babbling brook, or a blooming garden, reconnect with the magic inherent in the natural world.

23. Script Your Perfect Day

Take time in the morning to visualize and script your perfect day. Envision every detail, from the moment you wake up to the time you go to bed. Get swept up in the feeling of living your best life. This exercise helps manifest the magic you want to experience in your daily life.

24. Add Candlelight to Your Evenings

Transform your evenings with the soft glow of candlelight, even better if it has a scent you love. Create a cozy and magical atmosphere that encourages relaxation and reflection.

If you don’t want to use real candles, there are some great battery powered options. I’ve been using these flameless candles for several months and haven’t had to change the batteries yet, and the lights change colors!

Fairy lights are another great option for mood lighting.

25. Dress Up for Yourself

If you enjoy dressing up don’t wait for special occasions, dress up for yourself! If you want to sashay down the grocery aisles in a pink sequined dress, do it!

You don’t even have to leave your house if you don’t want to, you can still put on a cute outfit and do your hair and make up if that’s something you enjoy.

26. Read Magical Literature

Immerse yourself in literature that sparks your imagination and transports you to magical realms. Whether it’s fantasy, poetry, or fiction, let the power of words ignite your sense of wonder.

27. Add Flowers or Plants to Your Home

Invite nature indoors by incorporating flowers or plants into your living space. The presence of greenery adds life and vibrancy to your surroundings.

If you aren’t good with plants or you don’t want to buy flowers often, then fake plants work just as well.

28. Bask at the Night Sky

Find moments to gaze at the night sky. Whether it’s stargazing or enjoying a moonlit night, connect with the vastness of the universe and feel the magic that surrounds you.

29. Perform Random Acts of Kindness

Spread magic by performing random acts of kindness. Whether it’s a small gesture like giving someone a complement or a grand deed, contributing positively to someone else’s day creates a ripple effect of positive energy.

30. Add Color and Sparkle to Your Home

Enhance your living space with colors and sparkly touches that make you happy. Even if it’s just one room or one area, create a space that makes you feel cheerful and creative.

One trick I love is using prism window films, you just spray water on the window and it sticks on and bathes the room in rainbows when the sun hits it.

31. Create an Altar

Establish a personal altar that holds items of significance to you. This sacred space serves as a focal point for meditation, reflection, and the manifestation of your intentions. Your alter might have:

  • Fresh flowers
  • Crystals (look on Etsy)
  • Candles
  • Tarot cards
  • Your journal
  • Special keepsakes
  • Pictures of loved ones
  • Written affirmations
  • Items that represents what you want to manifest, like a miniature house or car

32. Write a Release Letter to the Universe

Release negativity and past burdens by writing a letter to the Universe with all the things you want to surrender or let go of. Express your feelings, forgive yourself and others, and allow the act of writing to be a cathartic and transformative experience.

33. Try Something New

Open yourself to fresh energy by trying something new. Whether it’s a hobby, a skill, or an experience, stepping out of your comfort zone opens the door to new possibilities and magical moments.
