Een Soundbath XL onder de laatste Nieuwe Maan van 2023! Op 13 december is de ruimte in Schoorl omgebouwd tot een ‘Nieuwe Maan tempel’. Hierin kun je volledig tot rust komen onder begeleiding van de klankschalen en andere instrumenten, zang, lichte beweging en meditatie in een twee uur durende Soundscape Session. Ontdek wat 2023 je heeft gegeven, waar je dankbaar voor bent en wat je wilt vieren. Maar ook wat je los zou willen laten en waarvan je afscheid kunt nemen. Creëer een kristalhelder inzicht en krijg tijdens de donkere dagen van het jaar alvast helderheid over de reis die voor je ligt. It’s time to spark that inner magic!
Spirituele betekenis en symboliek
De Nieuwe Maan symboliseert het begin, de groei en de geboorte van nieuwe intenties. Je kunt het zien als een kosmische resetknop. De duisternis van de Maan symboliseert een leeg canvas waarop we onze dromen en verlangens voor de toekomst kunnen schilderen. Het schept de ruimte om vooruit te blikken, maar ook terug. Waardoor we de kennis van wat we al hebben meegemaakt, onderdeel kunnen laten zijn wat we bewust willen creëren. Deze maanfase moedigt aan om oude patronen los te laten, om ruimte te maken voor het komende licht. Hierdoor kun je met een open hart en geest het onbekende avontuur verwelkomen.
De Nieuwe Maan staat op 13 december in het teken Boogschutter, net als de Zon die elk jaar tussen 23 november en 21 december in dit avontuurlijke vuurteken staat. Nieuwe Maan in Boogschutter inspireert ons hart om nieuwe horizonten te vinden en wakkert de vlammen aan van onze honger naar (innerlijke) kennis en groei.
Boogschutter wordt geleid door Jupiter, de grootste planeet van ons zonnestelsel. Jupiter symboliseert geluk en expansie en werkt in op ervaringen van groei, optimisme, oneindige mogelijkheden en overvloed. Nu staat de planeet Jupiter op het moment van de Nieuwe Maan in Boogschutter nog in haar laatste paar weken retrograde. Tijdens een retrograde lijkt een planeet zich achterwaarts door de kosmos te bewegen. Doordat Jupiter retrograde zich hiermee door het vurige teken Ram beweegt, worden we uitgenodigd voor introspectie en transformatie.
Twee kosmische lichamen (Maan en Jupiter) in een vuurteken dus! Met deze energieën gebundeld worden we aangespoord om onze persoonlijke doelen en verlangens te onderzoeken, om echt te begrijpen wat ons werkelijk drijft en ons af te vragen of onze ambities aansluiten bij ons authentieke zelf. Met de inzichten die je door middel van deze XL editie zult achterhalen, bereik je een kristalhelder inzicht. De perfecte afsluiting voor 2023. Zodat je met inzicht, goede ideeën en helderheid 2024 kunt starten. Vanaf het begin van het nieuwe jaar staat Jupiter ook weer ‘normaal’ en reist deze voorwaarts door het aardse teken Stier.
Verbinding maken met je innerlijke waarheid
Tijdens het Soundbath XL word je hierin begeleid. Je krijgt ruimte om te reflecteren op concepten als veiligheid, aarding, persoonlijke kracht en steun. Om inzicht te krijgen hoe deze van invloed zijn op je persoonlijke reis en waar je in 2024 naartoe zou willen bewegen. Deze avond is zo opgebouwd dat je de ruimte krijgt om op diepere lagen van je bewustzijn te werken. De rustgevende geluiden en trillingen van kristallen en Tibetaanse klankschalen, drum, tingsha, zang, geleide meditatie, ademhalingstechnieken en conscious body movement, helpen je om diep in je innerlijke wereld te duiken en verbinding te maken met de kern van wat echt belangrijk voor je is.

The first of May welcomes you to the enchanting ambience of Beltane. Traditionally seen as a time of joy, abundance, growth, and the first manifestations of new beginnings. So it’s a perfect time to hone in on your dreams and desires.
Jump into this Beltane fire magic ritual to help manifest your dreams with more ease!
In the Wheel of the Year, Beltane falls halfway between Ostara on the spring equinox and Litha, the summer solstice. It’s an ancient pagan festival that has been celebrated for centuries, finding its origins in the Celtic lands of Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.
The word Beltane comes from “the fires of Bel,” referring to the Celtic healing god, Belenos (who also, by Roman interpretation, might be identified as a sun god because of his connection with Apollo).
This festivity falls at the height of spring when the flowers are fully in bloom. By ancient Celtic tradition, bonfires would be lit to cleanse, bless themselves, and increase fertility. They would pass their cattle between the fires for the purpose of purification, and they believed it would ensure their fertility too.
This celebration is famously tied to fertility, love, sensuality and sexuality. Therefore, Beltane was a great time for lovers to jump over a ceremonial fire while holding hands – petitioning for blessings for the coming year.
Beltane and fire magic rituals go hand-in-hand.
Amp your manifestation magic during Beltane by connecting with the earth, the elements, and the spirits of nature.
One of the key elements of Beltane is fire. Fire symbolises transformation and represents the inspiration that ignites your desires and the fuel that drives your manifestation. So it’s a powerful tool for manifestation magic.
Let’s work with your desires and bring dreams to reality. Get ready for some fire magic!
To work your manifestation magic, you’ll need the following materials:
🕯️ A candle in the colour that represents your desire. For an easy checklist and a little on candle magic, read this accessible article.
🏮 A lantern to place your candle in.
🔥 A cauldron or firepit.
✒️ Pen and paper.
🌿 Your favourite incense.
🔮 Other items that might amplify your focus, visualisation or relaxation techniques, such as a crystal, music or instruments, etc.
Obviously, this ritual will lead you into nature, so pack your belongings and head out to your favourite Zen spot. Connecting with nature when you’re outside is by far easier when you get your feet in on actual grass. If this, for whatever reason, isn’t possible, feel free to perform your Beltane ritual in the comfort of your home. Allow there to be a link to nature, for example, by decorating your altar with your favoured flowers.
Find a quiet place in nature where you feel comfortable, safe and welcomed. It could be anywhere. In your own yard, a park, a forest, or a beach.
Create a moment to ground yourself and connect with the earth. Take a few deep breaths, and when you feel connected, set up a sacred space by placing your candle, lantern, and other accessories and burn your incense as an offering (take care of Mother Nature and burn incense safely, make sure it’s fully extinguished before you leave).
Think about what you want to manifest within about half a year. Make sure that this desire is realistic and achievable and that it’s also doable for you to create tangible steps towards it.
Light your candle once you are positive about what you want to call into being.
If you brought any music or instruments, go ahead. Either play yourself into a deep meditation, listen to the deeply relaxing tunes you’ve brought, or let the natural sounds of the environment take you there…
Feel your body and mind fully relax, then envision yourself living your desire. What does it feel like when manifested? Allow yourself to immerse in this feeling sensation for about 10 minutes. Close your meditation by receiving a positive affirmation that is connected to you, as if you’re already living the desired outcome.
Journal about your meditation; write down what you saw, how you felt, what you will do to make it happen in the coming weeks, and any other essential details. End your writing with your positive affirmation.
Create a small fire in a cauldron or light the firepit. As you light the fire, take a few moments to watch the flames and imagine your desire coming into reality – quickening.
When the fire burns brightly, read what you wrote aloud and throw your folded paper into the flames.
Finally, sit with it and watch the flames. See if any colours or visions come.
When you’re ready, extinguish the fire and thank the spirits of nature for their support.
You can use your positive affirmation daily for as long as feels good.
Blessed weaving, Blessed Beltane,
The previous Wheel of The Year celebration, Ostara, prepared you for all the good things flowing into your life through a sacred spring cleansing ritual. It’s never too late to clear the way for your desires that are about to manifest. Check out that ritual here, and feel free to combine the two if your situation asks for it.

Time for a sacred spring cleansing ritual! Ostara marks the vernal equinox, a time of balance, renewal, growth, and fertility.
This celebration marks the beginning of spring in the wheel of the year, where the day and night are equal in length, and the sun begins to warm the earth. Honour this season’s energies by letting go of the old, so you can make way for all the good things coming.
Ostara is named after the Germanic goddess Ēostre, associated with dawn, spring, and fertility.
She is seen as a compassionate and nurturing goddess symbolising new beginnings, growth, and rebirth.
Ēostre is often depicted holding a hare or a rabbit. Her story tells of her being angry at a bird that would not mate. As punishment, she turned the bird into a hare that could still lay colourful eggs but only once a year on the spring equinox. So now you know where our egg painting comes from. These eggs were traditionally given as gifts and offerings in her honour, marking the beginning of the Ostara celebration.
As the earth awakens from its winter slumber, we are called to awaken from our spiritual, mental and/or physical sleep. Ostara invites us to let go of the old, embrace the new, shed no longer serving layers, and step into our power. It reminds us that we are part of the earth’s cycles, never stagnant, continually growing and evolving.
The period around Ostara is powerful and transformative. When you create time to harness its energy, it brings about positive change and a flow that will assist you in manifesting your desires. Something we’ll tap into during our Beltane celebration (May 1st). Imagine your intentions as seeds you’d plant in your garden during early spring. But before you plant anything, let’s ensure the ground is fertile.
There are many ways to celebrate Ostara, such as painting eggs. A tradition we recognise from Easter. But I’m an absolute fan of throwing a sacred spring cleansing. Not that I like it, but I love the result, for it’s an excellent way to make sure that your intentions and efforts are fruitful. You’re symbolically making space for the new things you’re calling into being as you’re getting rid of any old frequency, clutter, etc.
Wrap up any extensive reorganising and cleaning first. Make dusting and mopping the last tasks on your list. These chores are the final steps of your sacred spring cleansing ritual.
Depending on your situation, this ritual might be easy and quick or demand more time investment. If it’s the latter, you might want to reconnect to your self-love practice by making tidying up part of your self-care ritual. Read tidying expert Marie Kondo’s article about self-care here or find out how to get your cleaning going by diving into her six rules of tidying up.
Start your sacred spring cleansing ritual at the highest point of your house. Make it as joyful as possible, play your favourite music or podcast, and maybe even burn some incense while at it.
Make your own zen mix by adding the following essential oils to your cleaning water:
Lavender: soothing and calming.
Eucalyptus: uplifting and cleansing.
Tea tree: purifying.
Place your hands over the water and visualise it purifying and energising your space. Say the following words, or write your own purification spell.
With sage so pure, water and sponge,
I cleanse and purify this grunge.
Tea-tree and lavender, let their scents blend,
Darkness and slumber, let them now end.
In each room, I essentially cast,
True potential to fully blast.
I banish what’s negative and let light amass,
Creating a pure and sacred space that will last.
You want to work your cleaning efforts as counterclockwise as possible towards the front door. The counterclockwise movement symbolises getting rid of anything that’s old. While doing this, simultaneously hold love and gratitude for everything you’re cleaning. If the weather allows it, open the windows as you go through each room.
Once you’re at the front door, open it and weave your hands through the sky as if moving energy out of your house. Clean the threshold and door frame counterclockwise, thus moving from the lowest point to the right, up and left and say the following words:
My intention is pure, my heart is strong,
This home is now clear and protected from what feels wrong.
If, during your cleanse, you felt a specific space to be very dense in energy, you can uplift the energy in the room by placing a charged selenite on a designated spot. Cleanse the selenite with sage during the next new moon. How does the room now feel? Does it still need the selenite? Does it need something else? You can always recharge your selenite by placing it under the full moon.
During the period between Ostara and Beltane, it’s a perfect time to analyse and journal your desires. Do this to prepare yourself for a manifestation ritual during Beltane.
Wishing you a blessed spring,
Recycle. Make recycling a loving task of gratitude to nature. Separating your waste allows more items and materials to be recycled, reducing environmental impact by decreasing landfill disposal. Donating books, clothing, etc., to a thrift shop or charity allows those items a second life while simultaneously making someone happy.
Good to know: if you have pets, always research if certain oils are safe to use in your household. Some oils can be very toxic to animals, such as citrus oils. When diluted and of therapeutic grade, the oils mentioned above are safe to use.
For the previous Wheel of the Year celebration, see Imbolc. You can read more about how to celebrate Imbolc here.

Get your cauldron out, my witch. It’s time for a self-love Imbolc ritual.
Though the promise of light returning has been freshly made by our annual passing of the shortest day during December’s winter solstice, we are still left with the feeling of winter in our bones.
For many people, January and February are the dreary, dark and cold months of the year. Light-sensitive folk might even be prone to winter blues.
But don’t let these winter vibes get the best of you love! This sweet yet simple self-love ritual during Imbolc will uplift you, so you can get back on your broom in no time : )
What you’ll need is the following:
The Celtic festival of Imbolc is celebrated halfway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. Starting on Feb. 1st and lasting through sundown Febr. 2nd, invoking a moment of purification of home and hearth, the coming of light and the increasing fertility found in nature.
Rosemary has a long history of being a multifaceted healing herb (read more about that here). For this ritual you’re tapping into its brain stimulating properties improving memory, its assistance in psychic protection and boosting qualities stimulating your intuition. Besides that, it inspires the love of self and others, strengthening your heart and nervous system.
This Imbolc ritual will bring you home to your heart, helping you realign your visions for the year ahead.
Carve out some sacred self-love time in your agenda, during which you’ll be undisturbed. Ask yourself: What am I longing for?
Meditate with the rosemary whilst focusing on your heart’s desire.
Magic means nothing without focused desire, so it’s essential to get clarity of mind before you sit with your herb. I always like to start with a grounding meditation before I move on to the ritualistic parts, and when I need some extra support, I love to use the Crystal Clarity Aura Spray.
Once you have your mind and desire clear, put cold water in the pan and let it slowly boil. In the meantime, journal on your desire and what it feels like to have that desire as if it were fulfilled in the present time.
When the water is boiling, add your rosemary whilst chanting:
Quickening light and winter breeze
Let my desire be fulfilled with ease.
Like the light just let it flow
As first spring flowers, let it grow.
My mind clear, gaze upon goal
Let its potential flow through, whole.
As I stir my potion, sweet
I know I’m in for quite the treat.
Let your brew steep for 10 minutes, then pour your rosemary tea into your favourite cup.
Accompanied by your brew and treats, envision yourself living your desire. Look around. What do you see and feel? Who is there with you? Where are you?
Take a few minutes to write down as many details that come to you, and from this inspiring vision, ask yourself the following:
‘What spiritually inspired actions can I take in the following six weeks to ignite this momentum?’
Write about five to eight actions down. Let them come from your vision and feeling within that vision instead of your calculating, anticipating, gorgeous brain. Then make a plan for when to execute what – remember, it’s still wintertime. Small yet consistent steps take you a very long way!

Can you sense our human desire for warmth, light, companionship and safety when the days get darker? It’s a very natural thing to experience. During the winter days, we flock together, celebrate, eat, drink, reminisce and chant. Our joy brings light to these dark annual moments.
Then again, we’re often tempted to fill our days with too many social obligations.
You could’ve started your December month freshly rolling out of Thanksgiving. Here in The Netherlands, we start the last month of the year with Sinterklaas. This festivity is similar to Santa climbing through the chimney and surprising all the “good children” with presents. After which, we quickly move on to Christmas.
These days are generally spent amongst family and friends, accompanied by rituals that either focus on the birth of baby Jesus, Santa and his fairy friends, a visit by the Krampus, or non of the above.
When I hear people refer to festival stress, I wonder how we’ve warped the Yule invitation of turning our energy inward and tending to our inner flame to something so external and, sometimes, beyond what we personally desire.
So how can we do both? Spend these moments more balanced and with awareness while still being part of all the fun?
The end of the year demands us to level our inner light and tend to our life force.
This will prevent us from giving all our attention and energy away, so we don’t have to suffer from festival fatigue and can actually accomplish our New Year’s resolutions. 🙂
Here’s why …
The folkloric allegory of the Holly King and the Oak King, who personify winter and summer, depicts it perfectly.
Both Kings are in a constant battle over the seasonal cycles, light and dark, renewal and growth.
In spring, the Oak King reigns over nature, bringing fertility, light and growth. At his peak on Midsummer, he’s overpowered by the Holly King, who in turn gains his full power by the autumn equinox and reigns over nature by Midwinter. The days are short, the ground is cold, and all potential has retracted into the Earth.
But it’s on Midwinter the Oak King is born again. Now it’s he who takes over the throne, and come spring, we witness the promise of his fortitude. At the peak of the Oak King’s reign, the perpetual battle between the Kings starts again.
By creating your own Yule ritual of course! The winter solstice, Yule, introduces Yuletide. Yuletide starts on the shortest day of the year and lasts until the 1st of January. During this time, the birth of the Oak King is celebrated.
Remembering that we’re just at the cusp of the promise of light returning is key. Due to the Earth’s axis, we still have to battle through some dark mornings. Even after the winter solstice, the mornings are still getting longer. It’s essential to balance the external and internal qualities of life.
This doesn’t mean that Yuletide is celebrated in silence. By any means, Yule traditionally is a lavish, very celebratory and social festivity.
It’s a beautiful way of celebrating transformation and the new Light Year ahead.
Ask yourself: What do I leave behind? As if you’ve been shedding skin in the ever-prevailing darkness that entered life after the summer solstice.
But even more so, what do I want to focus upon? It is as if the promise of light returning can enlarge that energy and focal point. See how your New Year’s resolution ties into this preparatory period?
I love to celebrate this time of awareness by burning a Yule Log.
Since I don’t have a fireplace to light my oak log, I anoint a candle that can burn for at least 288 hours (12 days) as my Yule Log substitute.
Oak is traditionally used during this festivity, representing longevity, strength, fertility, wisdom and, of course, the Oak King. So I make sure to add some oak leaves and acorns to my altar.
This whole ritual is about creating moments of gratitude for what has already come to pass. When doing this, visualise that your feelings of gratitude emit an energy of light which you send out into the new year.
It’s like creating a spell of attraction, drawing in all the things that make you feel even more appreciative. And who doesn’t want to experience more of the things they love?
What you need:
Sit with your log (be it wood or wax), pen and paper, and find feeling moments of gratitude. I like to divide these in no particular order:
Know that you can tweak or add this list however you desire.
Write down at least one memory you genuinely feel residing in the body for each area. Afterwards, find corresponding oils and/or herbs. One for each life area. Use your intuition. When in doubt, you’ll easily find information about the qualities of herbs and oils online.
Rub the oils on the wax or log whilst feeling gratitude. If you’re working with herbs only, use a bit of base oil (such as olive or almond) to anoint your candle, so the spices stick to your candle’s surface.
Don’t use cinnamon or any other inflammatory ingredients. If you insist on applying them, place them on your altar or use them with caution when burning your log.
If you want to decorate the wax or wood with a knife, go ahead – be creative, but please take good care of your fingers 🙂
This year I am using two candles, which are needed to cover the whole Yuletide. Therefore it’s easy to prepare one candle first, and as the moment of switching candles comes close, I’ll address the second one. But feel free to decorate all your wood or wax in one go.
Wishing you a merry time and all blessings be,

Be careful if you decide to keep fire or flame burning. Safety first! My candles or placed very safely and in a layer of water. If in doubt, never leave a fire unattended. Snuff your candle (instead of blowing it out).

Let me tell you first what this blog is not.
It ain’t about magic, spell work or performing a ritual.
It will touch upon awareness and clarity of your thoughts, emotions and actions. And … how these qualities help you to predict your own future.
Inspired by the inscription ‘Gnothi Seauton’, the engraved words Know Thyself found on a column before entering the Temple of Apollo at Delphi, where the Pythia – the Greek oracle of Antiquity, resided.
Okay, let me give you just a little bit of historical background …
People travelled across Greece to gain her insights. After sufficient offerings were laid upon the altar outside the temple, the inquirer was allowed to enter. The Pythia may have received messages directly from the Gods, or she was in a state of delirium (caused by, among other things, the fumes and gases rising out of a crack in the earth’s surface). It probably was a combination of both. Whatever the case, she was famous throughout Greece.
Now, if you’ve been envisioning the Pythia as one individual priestess who turned over 500 years old … that wasn’t the case. The Pythia was, throughout the years, embodied by different, initiated priestesses – performing the sacred task of being the oracle. If our traditions were the same and if she was alive in our time, we would refer to her as an idol.
This shows the beauty of it all. Being the oracle is not a gift bestowed upon one individual. With what I know about the Divine and Divine Intelligence, we don’t need an outsider to enable that connection. Though, help can come in handy because receiving clarity in messages might depend on where you are in your journey. But for the next part, don’t worry about that. You got this!
You are the one with knowledge of a thousand libraries stored in every cell of your body, bones, and Being. And this is your invitation to become your own oracle.
As you might well know, I love to guide people in creating clarity of mind and desire. We can start weaving our manifestations more easily when we come from a place of clarity. Clarity comes down to: Know Thyself.
So at the nearing end of 2022, energy is turning inward as the world in the Northern Hemisphere prepares for winter and her own Dark Moon phase.
This is your invitation to start gathering knowledge about yourself. By creating an overview of the experiences you’ve had, the choices made, and the roads travelled, you gain insight into if these previously made decisions are in alignment with your heart’s desire.
Are the roads you’ve travelled bringing you closer to what you want to manifest?
Are the things you’ve experienced and encounters you’ve had moments that you like to have more of?
Winter is coming; therefore, it is the right time to prepare yourself by taking your Divine Intelligence to heart. Become the oracle and create a moment of magical web-weaving to prepare yourself for the future.
Start with creating a moment of silence. If a guided meditation gets you there – go for it! Once you feel connected (meaning the mind chatter has quieted down), be aware of the moment. Give yourself permission to be vulnerable and honest, and tap into your heart’s desire. If it’s a big one, let the next question allow you to cut a big manifestation into smaller steps. Ask yourself:
‘What is my desire for the next couple of months? What do I want to accomplish?’
Write it down. Suppose you fancy creating a visual reminder of what you want to manifest. You can make a vision board or jot down your answer on an inspiring postcard later.
Now it’s time to become your own oracle and predict the future by shifting your attention to everything you know about yourself. Ask yourself:
‘What are my pitfalls or weaknesses in connection to what I want to manifest?’
Make a list of all the things that come to mind. Think about the effect of where your time and energy flows. The people you spend time with and the quality of those connections. And, of course, scan your thoughts, emotions and decisions. How will or have these things affected that which you want to manifest?
You just created a list of things that cause big or small blocks on your journey towards a more effortless way of manifesting. Make two lists. Call them the “elimination” and “investment” lists and fill out the following:
‘What of these things can I do less of or totally eliminate?’ and,
‘What skills can I invest in or decisions do I need to make that allow for that desire to happen?’
Great! Now that’s a lot of information that asks for implementation. My advice is to take it easy on yourself. I would already call your list an extensive one if you jotted down three or more things. Take it step by step and focus first on the low-hanging fruits.
Create the following by listening more to how your body responds to what you write down than what your mind thinks of it. We tend to create action plans from very goal-getter energy caused by the strategic skills of the left side of the brain. In our western culture, we’re already doing enough of that. Try to spark an opening for your right brain information and creativity and list:
‘What would be a loving structure of implementing the things mentioned on your elimination and investment lists?’
Make it efficient and loving to self. Remember, we are preparing for winter, so slowing it all down is what nature invites us to do.
Maybe, after all, this blog was about magic.

May we celebrate that we are leaving “The Void” behind us and the promise of light is upon us – welcome to Imbolc. The time when the air still feels crispy, it might even snow, but below that winter blanket, there’s the promise of new life. And as our bodies start to receive more intense rays of light from the skyclock up above, we know that the seasons are shifting and winter will turn into spring.
I love this time of year when the light returns. It always ignites my manifestation magick practices.
December and January support me in retreating for an in-depth process of inner alchemy. Can you envision me stirring a cauldron, loudly cackling away while adding all kinds of ingredients into my boiling brew? This retreating is my technique for digesting all life’s experiences that were gifted to me in that year.
By February, I start to get a more precise grip on what I desire to manifest. Or even better put, I begin to receive information on the actions I can take in daily life to quicken the materialisation of what I’m drawing in.
This can be mundane information, such as creating a new time management schedule for a project or changing my workout routine. But it can also be on a spiritual level, for example adding or changing a ritual, or focussing on balancing a chakra energy that will help me in my growth towards the embodiment of my vision.
But it all starts with opening the doors to what ignites you by tending to your inner frequency, tending to that inner flame.
Let me help you with a guided seated meditation to bring back your fire. So you can radiate your magick into your life and create a world you want to live in.
With love and fiery blessings,

We all know this beautiful crystal! For most of us, rose quartz is one of the first crystals in our collection. It’s a widely available mineral with a soft to warm pink radiance and loved for its harmonising, nurturing energy.
I have to be honest with you, I came late to the rose quartz party (probably still early at the age of sixteen, but hey I got my first crystal when I was five).
Rose quartz wasn’t one of my favourites when I started collecting as a child, maybe because I didn’t vibe with it or simply because it wasn’t on my radar. Even after adding some rose quartz pieces to my collection (which were all gifts by the way), it took me a while to appreciate it beyond ‘just pretty’.
Looking back on my personal growth I’m so grateful that this crystal energy grew on me. On a personal level, I’ve witnessed its enforcement in implementing practices of self-love, acceptation and trust. As a crystal therapist and witch coach, I continuously observe the loving guidance this crystal energy offers to my clients during their transformations.
This crystal is one of nature’s most significant mineral gifts in the (self) love department, and I’m here for it!
It’s the go-to frequency amplifier for love, self-love, harmony, nurture and support. This crystalline spirit can help in your process of working through traumas, grief, loss, and insecurity. With its calming vibes, it’s a very suitable crystal for young children who have difficulty with being alone, sleeping and resting, and feeling secure. For these apparent reasons its part of “The Love Collection”, and if you’re still on the lookout for a unique piece, click here.
Gorgeous being, Let me start off with wishing you a blessed, wonderful, magical and healthy new year! Oh my dear spirits, what a year 2020 has been … I won’t spend […]
Let me start off with wishing you a blessed, wonderful, magical and healthy new year!
Oh my dear spirits, what a year 2020 has been … I won’t spend time on how this year has been like no other we have ever witnessed – it was quite apparent and 2020 will definitely be marked in our history books.
I earnestly wish last year has given you something beautiful! Maybe in the form of silence and serenity, perhaps in the form of discovering an unfathomable power deep within.
In this video I’ll share my divinatory insights about the magic of manifesting – what that even means for 2021 – accompanied by a new moon meditation and a separate ritual which you can repeat whenever you feel like it. I’ll explain more in the video. Happy weaving!
NEW MOON RITUAL TO PREP YOURSELF FOR SOME SACRED MANIFESTING
I have to share this ritual with you ’cause it’s simple, effective and in my experience the one that always gets the job done – for it embodies this element of ‘out of your head – and into action’. 2021 will be a year of focussing on the little steps that get you to where it is you want to be. Not meaning that your dreams and desire shouldn’t be BIG.
Besides that this ritual brings together the practice of self-love, personal energy, intuition, embodied action and empowerment. Gotta love such a packed ritual right?!
– Sage, Palo Santo or any other herb or aura spray you like to cleanse your space with,
– Optional: your favourite music.
If you’re reading this on the 13th of January, know that we’re still in the dark moon… Now is not the time to a ham on your manifestations, but the right timing for introspection and preparation.
Make sure you create some ‘me’ time. Physically cleanse the space your in, and energetically cleans it by using your Palo Santo or Sage, etc. If you have the possibility to also take a bath, or shower… do it!
When you’re ready do whatever is needed to get you in the zone. Maybe listen to this meditation that I have recorded, put on your fav. music, sing, dance, or do breathing exercises. Whenever you feel ready light the candle, sit in front of it and stare into the flame. You can protect your eyes by squinting or staring at the candle through a veil placed over your head. Take at least 5 to 10 minutes to fully let your monkey brain do all the chitter-chatter it wants. Let the mind calm down, and be present in the moment.
When you become aware of the calm mind, imagine that you and the flame are one. Become the light of the flame. After sitting like this for about 2 minutes let the fire that is you represent the fire of your manifestation – that thing that you’re calling into your life. Again, let everything melt together – flame, Self, manifestation, flame, Self, manifestation. Stating that the thing that you long for is already in the now, including how this makes you feel.
‘I wish to find a new job’, becomes ‘I am enjoying my creative and ever-expanding new job and I feel blessed with …’.
After staying in this space for a few minutes go for pen and paper and answer the following questions (considering the thing you’re calling in):
– What area of my life can use a cleanse?
– What area of my life could use more fire, action or rebellion?
– Which traditions, rituals, etc. am I holding onto, but are old and can be released?
– What obstacles (be it mental, emotional, or on a more mundane level) do I keep bumping into and are keeping you from your happiness?
– What can I regularly gift myself, which will help me move closer to my heart’s desire?
Repeat this practice for three days in a row. Then compare your answers and let them inspire you to take embodied action.
And remember – have fun!
Gorgeous Being! I hope this message finds you well in these extra-ordinary times. We are all going through significant changes on multi-dimensional levels, and I want you to know you […]
Gorgeous Being! I hope this message finds you well in these extra-ordinary times. We are all going through significant changes on multi-dimensional levels, and I want you to know you are not alone.
Many of you have been reaching out in various ways. We talked about emotions and thoughts during this pandemic, family and work, anxiety and stress.
Questions that I’ve been getting the last couple of weeks haven’t gone unnoticed. So let me share with you my “witch tips” on how to stay healthy and strong whilst being locked up in your home.
Through the years, I’ve noticed the beneficial effects of having a morning routine. When I stick to this habit, my day flows with much more ease.
Now don’t think this routine is taking me hours. I’m someone who doesn’t take nor have all day to meticulously go through detailed routines. I love techniques that are is easy, accessible and applicable, and if those things help me get the results that I want, I’m going to stick to them – no matter what.
Also, my routines aren’t static. No repetitive behaviour whole year-round. I have a witchy mindset which flows with the seasons. So as I change with the seasons, so do my habits.
But it is times like these (the moments when humankind adds so much energy to a specific type of being and believing) that I feel the need to amp up my game.
So let me share with you three routines that I’ve been practising the last couple of weeks. Just to keep my body and energy-field healthy and strong.
A) Every morning I make myself a fresh celery juice. Sometimes pure celery, other times, I add different greens such as spinach, kale, green pepper or wheatgrass. And a zest a lemon always gets me going.
First time I drank it, which was years ago, I didn’t like the taste at all. Still, I stuck to regularly slow juicing celery because I noticed my skin getting clearer, my energy levels going up, and in the morning I didn’t need two cups of coffee anymore to get me going. This juice works wonders for my metabolism and is amongst other things, high in vitamins C and K and potassium.
B) Move. I used to have exercise-induced asthma in my teens and got used to not moving because I wasn’t fond of using my inhalator for two reasons.
The first one had everything to do with having gone through a couple of intense asthma attacks. Imagine your breath suddenly taken and the feeling of not getting enough oxygen while you start to make this awful squeaking sound while breathing. A sudden asthma attack can be a scary experience that leaves its mark. I did everything in my power not to go through such episodes again.
The second reason was because of the medicine itself. It made me tired AF. So the best thing I could come up with to cope with this situation was not to exercise at all.
Can you imagine I’m a yoga teacher now? I never want to go back to these days of not feeling connected to my own body. I need to move, every day. Be it through a Vinyasa sequence or walking 10.000+ steps (I live at the edge of the forest, so that’s quite easy – though I walk way more when I’m in New York City hahaha).
Days when I don’t get to move as much as I’d like to take their toll on me – mentally and physically.
Movement is a celebration for my body and an appreciation to my body.
C) Since I’ve always been interested in ways to beat fear, I was naturally drawn to breathing techniques. And as a singer, I learned to breathe quite effectively. But breathing was taken to a whole other level when I started experiencing and researching different breathing techniques that were connected to my yoga practice.
Every morning I tune into my body and breath. My breath is my thermometer showing me where I am on the scale of being versus doing. There’re different techniques, and I’ll gladly share more about that, but let me get to the sharing in a minute …
I cleanse my auric field – daily – multiple times. This sounds like a hassle, but over these 22 years of practising, I sure did crack a code.
Let me share with you which tools always worked for me without getting into all the details of how this practice changed the life of this very intuitive and high sensitive person.
Crystals, herbs, incense and oils are my go-to’s. I used to burn a lot of incense when I was younger (which luckily didn’t trigger my asthma, for this was only exercise-induced). But once I went to university and moved out of my parental home, I noticed – with the travelling, staying over at other peoples houses etc. – that the burning of herbs and incense wasn’t always welcomed. Nor was it something that I found practical and accessible.
So I started experimenting with creating my own potions and elixirs. No more smoke, no extra luggage, just some potent witchcraft in a bottle to spray.
I started experimenting with boiling herbs, infusing water with different types of crystals and more. It turned into a practice that now is imprinted in my bones – or maybe it had been all long.
Nowadays, I share my potions in the form of crystal aura sprays with clients, spray them during yoga classes and design special editions for events, workshops and rituals.
Today I’m extra happy for I may announce that this new moon in Aries brings the launch of my very own webshop! And in the webshop, you’ll find amongst other products the special edition aura spray ‘Healing Waters’.
Healing Waters is that aura spray for extra-ordinary times! The mix of essential oils dates all the way back to 1413 CE and holds purifying, refreshing and revitalising ingredients. The healing properties of this spray are supported by water out of the Chalice Well in Glastonbury – known for its healing qualities. And I’ve amplified the vibrations of this spray with clear quartz crystal, moon magic and positive affirmations.
This is a perfect spray to accompany you at the (home)office to keep you energetically fresh and clean, and during the challenging winter months when your immune system can use an extra boost.
If you want to know more, I’ve recorded this video for you in which I share more about:
-the Healing Waters crystal aura spray,
– the ingredients I used,
– and a limited edition Healing Waters Boxset, which comes with the aura spray, a Healing Waters Candle and Clear Quartz Crystal including a gift from me to you. An online 30-minute coaching call to program your crystal. So you can stay on top of your game no matter what!
I have so much more to share on the topic of routines, consciously creating your energy and tuning in with your body, your mind and intuition.
I would love to share this with you in a free 7-day mini-course.
But before I go and spend hours behind a computer to create this course, I need to know from you if this is something you might be interested in and what it is that you want to learn.
Is it how to weave your own magic? Tap into your intuition. Create a helpful mindset and a healthy body. Or maybe something I haven’t mentioned so far …
Let’s get in touch soon, so we can make this homebound time even more fruitful. Because it is when we get to grow and use our inner power on this beautiful planet, we all grow and evolve together.
For now – be healthy, wise and safe. Take good care of yourself and your loved ones.
All blessings be,

It’s the first new moon of this decade on the 24th of January. To me, it always feels as if the new year is really settling in on the first new moon. And the energy that she brings this time is totally resonating with that.
This year the new moon falls in the sign of Aquarius, the known water-bearer, but nonetheless an Air sign so pretty mental in nature. Aquarius is the humanitarian of the zodiac, bringing team spirit, quirkiness and innovative ideas. How to get the best out of these elements? Keep on reading, because there are more ingredients to add.
LUNAR YEAR OF THE RAT
And with this new moon welcoming the Chinese Year of the Metal Rat! The Rat is the first in the twelve-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac and stands for high flexibility, vitality, spirit and alertness, with the element of metal adding some strong self-awareness and sensitivity.
Witch tip for 2020: The Metal Rat is divine energy fuelling your ambitions, drive and possible business dealings, thus an absolute power boost. Though be mindful. The Metal element can bring in some emotional sensitivity to the table. Make sure to check in with yourself regularly and take a moment to relax, so you don’t let your emotions run your life, business or communications.
HOW TO GET YOUR WITCHING GOING
So how to make the best of this astrological time and weave your magic? This new moon is a great time to start with setting your intentions. After the busy holiday season, I hope you’ve had time to do some grounding and inner work to get clear on what it is that you want to attract and manifest. If not, don’t worry – now is the time! Described below, you’ll find a three-step ritual to get your witch power going.
To attract and manifest your desires, it’s essential to spend time with your power frequency, namely the vibration of being the creator of your life. We’ve all heard it: dream big. Dreaming and hoping is one thing, but if fear and self-doubt are continuously popping up their heads, freezing instead of moving towards your desires, you’re keeping yourself away from your inherent power and the endless possibilities in which you can design your own life.
The new moon represents a deep sense of quiet, a journey within, while you transition through this lunar time of renewal and new beginnings – yay to the new year! Let’s use this time in creating clarity, strategy, but first and foremost, harmony.
To support yourself into attuning to your power frequency start by cleansing your auric field. Release and relief yourself of old vibrations and energetic debris that are a result of the past year or even decade.
Do this by taking a cleansing salt bath or shower. Salt cleanses your energy field, so while you’re playing mermaid, you’re getting an automatic cleansing of your system. You can even sprinkle some dried sage into your bathwater, which will support the clearing energies.
If possible, replace sea or Himalayan salt with Epsom salt to add minerals to the water that will support muscle relaxation due to the high levels of magnesium so you can also enjoy a physical detox.
If you don’t have a bath, make yourself a scrub from salt and sage.
While washing or bathing attune to the intention of releasing any negative vibrations that are keeping you from your highest potential. Really take time to quite the shatter that forms the obstacles on the road to attracting and receiving what it is that you desire.
After bathing, treat yourself like the divine being you are by massaging your body with your favourite mineral-free oil, like almond oil. You can add some essential oil with a soothing fragrance to the equation.
Think about your dreams. What are you manifesting during this new moon? While massaging your body, let the ideas come.
Now sit by your altar (or table), light your white candle (using white as a representation for all possibilities) and decorate your altar with white flowers. Meditate for a few minutes on all the desires that just travelled through your consciousness and pick only three things out of the whole bunch that you want to manifest.
1. Something you wish will unfold quite quickly,
2. Something which you want within the course of three to four months,
3. And the third one over half a year.
Now use the following two weeks to revisit the three things on your list and journal. Writing down all the things that you can do to support a full display of your dreams into your life. Remember. Dreaming is one thing. Formulating them out in the open and into your journal is the second step of conscious manifesting. Acting accordingly is the third (and often forgotten) crucial step to open up your life to the frequencies that you want to attract.
MAKE YOUR MAGIC INTELLIGIBLE
If you really desire to make your magic insightful, set your alarm for the 3rd of August. On this day, a full moon in Aquarius will occur, allowing you to review the events over the past few months. Don’t worry if something didn’t manifest. Ask yourself if this is something that you really want, something that sparks an emotion of joy. If yes, find a new strategy to get you there. If not, drop it. And most important, celebrate your accomplishments!
WHAT TO PREPARE IN A NUTSHELL
– Himalayan, Sea or Epsom salt,
– Dried sage,
– Your favourite mineral-free body oil,
– White candle,
– White flowers,
– Journal and pen.
You are divine, pure potential. As a result, your innate power is infinite, and what you can accomplish might blow your mind. Lots of power to you while weaving your magic!
I absolutely would love to hear from you. Show or tell me how your ritual went. Upload your story or post on Instagram and use #aïshazafirah or send a message via Instagram or Facebook and I’ll be in touch.
New moon blessings,
Since Aïsha’s ‘Sacred Space Creation’, the part of my house that always felt gloomy and heavy has changed completely. It now has become a place where I happily spend time.Pascal Elzinga
Aïsha met my wounded heart with compassion and guided my path back home. I found deep healing through a highly individualised practice and unique elemental medicine. Though great distances separated us, her sincerity flowed through the ethers and led me on a journey to the Underworld. These guided travels shared deep insights and valuable healing. I will gladly walk with her again.Amy Alexi
She has a way with the energies that flow between mind, body, and spirit. How she guides me through my inner journey blows my mind!Danny Slotboom
