Beltane Fire Magic Ritual To Help Manifest Dreams

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!

History and Lore

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.  

Symbolism Of A Beltane Fire Magic Ritual

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!

Preparations And Tools

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. 

A Beltane Fire Magic Ritual To Help Your Dreams Come To Reality

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.

Sacred Cleansing Ritual To Celebrate Ostara

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.

Lore of the Goddess Ēostre

Ostara is named after the Germanic goddess Ēostre, associated with dawn, spring, and fertility.

Image of the Goddess Ēostre by IrenHorrors holding a hare.
Ostara image drawn by IrenHorrors

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.

Symbolism of Ostara

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.

An Ostara Spring Cleansing Ritual

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. 

Final Thoughts To Complete Your Sacred Spring Cleansing

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.

A Self-Love Imbolc Ritual To Celebrate Your Magic

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:

  • a journal, pen and your heart’s desire
  • a cauldron, aka a pan to boil water in (don’t use an electric water boiler or cooker)
  • rosemary (dried or fresh)
  • your favourite heart-warming treat (I love to use dark chocolate with chilli and orange)
  • about 45min to one hour of sacred time

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.

Why rosemary?

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!

Blessed weaving!


Healing Routines

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.

Listen to the 10m59s recording of the blog here or just keep on reading 5min20s.

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.

Aïsha Zafirah Yoga Backbend

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 …

Please reach out to me. Just give me a shout. E-mail me or send a message via Instagram or Facebook, and I’ll be in touch.

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,


A Ritual For The First New Moon of January 2020

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.


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. 


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.

New Moon January Spellcraft


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. 

Write down:

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. 

New Moon Ritual January 2020 Journal and Crystals


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. 


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!


– 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,
