Rituals have been around since ancient times.  Archaeological evidence shows man’s earliest civilizations engaged in rituals to begin planting seasons, bury the dead, welcome a newborn, and many other important events in the cycle of life.

Rituals are done to express and reaffirm certain beliefs, and if you are a firm believer in manifestations, you’re going to love what you’re about to discover in this article.

While we’ve been talking about manifestation techniques, such as using affirmations, visualizations, and other goal-setting techniques, we also want to share the magic of rituals.

Did you know that 45% of people perform a ritual before completing an important task, according to a study done by Harvard Business Review?  In the same study, it was discovered that rituals help people succeed because it lowers anxiety and stress.  

In this article, we’ve come up with 7 mystic rituals you can perform before and during manifesting.



Harness the power of fire to manifest your desires.  According to quantum mystic and astrologer Imani Quinn, the element of fire is so potent that lighting candles when visualizing, meditating, or praying to the Universe will help provide the light it needs to raise its vibrations.

To do this ritual, buy a few abundance or prosperity candles, or whatever candle you can get your hands on.  There are several meanings of candle colors, with black for protection, green for money, pink for love, white for purity, and so on.

If you have a regular white candle, that will do as well.  Choose a quiet space where there are no distractions.  Place a number of candles in a circle or semicircle.  Sit down in front of the candles, or in the middle of the circle.

Light the candles and start reciting your intentions.  By speaking out loud, you are activating the energy of your throat chakra, which helps to raise your intention’s vibrations.  Meditate for a few minutes, visualize your goals and dreams coming true, and slowly blow out your candles one by one, feeling the warmth of the smoke on your body.

Decluttering your space is making use of Feng Shui beliefs in helping you manifest your goals.  Decluttering simply means throwing out material things you no longer need or bringing you joy.  When your home or bedroom, office, or workspace is cluttered, you are blocking positive energies that would have come your way.

When you declutter, you are also harnessing the power of the air element into your life.  You are making way for an effortless flow of energy in your space, allowing blessings to flow through you.  

Decluttering is also a way of clearing out negative habits, old behaviors that are toxic, and anything negative in your life.  By clearing them out, you are making way for positive energy and new beginnings to enter your life.

Decluttering is believed to be the fastest and most effective way to attract something new in your life.  It is believed that nature cannot resist empty space.  When nature senses that there's something vacant or open in your life, the Universe will try to fill it.  Ever noticed after cleaning out a drawer it immediately fills up with stuff days later?  That's just how the Universe works.

So if you want a new relationship, you have to get rid of an old one. If you want a better job, you have to leave a toxic career first.  If you want a new car, you need to clean out your garage.

Clutter also represents stuck energy and this can block your desires from coming into your life.  Start cleaning your home, throwing away old stuff you don’t need, opening your windows, organizing your things, and getting rid of anything in your life that doesn’t give you happiness.


Take advantage of different lunar phases to manifest your dreams.  Mystics believe that the moon can affect mood, health, well-being, and vibrational frequencies.  

If you want to get rid of old habits and toxic behaviors, practice rituals during the full moon.  The full moon is a time for culmination and fruition, so if you want to end a toxic relationship, stop smoking, overcome an addiction, or recover from alcohol drinking, setting your intentions during the full moon is the best time.

If you want to attract something new in your life, manifest your goals during the new moon.  It is also believed that the 3rd crescent day, which happens after the new moon, is the best time to set your intentions.

When doing a moon ritual, go outside during these moon phases and set your intentions while you’re bathing in the rays of the moon.

  1. Grounding

Grounding is making use of the Earth's energy to manifest your desires.  Grounding can be as simple as walking barefoot on grass or the ground, spending time in the forest, hugging a tree, or even swimming in a river, lake, or ocean.

It is simply connecting with the energy of the Earth and letting it heal you.  It is calming, lowers stress levels, and helps you become present.  It is these benefits that make grounding a powerful ritual to manifest your dreams.

When you are filled with the energy of the Earth, you are focused, calm, and stable, allowing you to visualize and manifest your dreams better.

Spend at least 80 minutes walking barefoot, or spending time in the woods, and talk to the Universe.  Feel the powerful energy of the Earth and set your intentions.


Smudging or smoke cleansing is a ritual with origins in Native American culture.  It is the use of dried plants such as white sage, lavender, sweetgrass, or cedar to remove and drive away negative energies from space or from a person’s energy fields.

White sage is believed to dispel negative energy, while cedar is for protection and purification.  Cedar, on the other hand, is used to attract positive energy, and palo santo, which is also known as “holy wood,” is used to dispel evil spirits.

You can also recite your intentions as you smudge your bedroom, home, office, or the energy fields that surround you.

You can buy a smudge stick from any spiritual shop, or you can also make one of your own.  Light one and start cleansing using the smoke that comes from the dried plants.

Rotate the smudge stick clockwise in a room or around your body to remove negative energies, attract good energy, and cleanse yourself from blockages that may prevent you from receiving the blessings you want to manifest.

Vision boards have long been used to manifest goals and desires.  It’s an effective manifestation tool on its own, but take it to the next level by making your vision boards on 11/11, November 11, or any 11:11 time on the clock.

Mystics like Uri Geller believe that 11:11 is a portal or gateway to the spiritual world.  It is believed to be a crack that allows the physical and the spiritual world to connect, allowing you to set your intentions during a time when energies are strong.  When you are setting your intentions at 11:11 time, your manifestation power is stronger because the doors to the divine world are cracked open.

While digital boards will suffice, a physical board is so much stronger when it comes to emitting vibrational frequencies that match your wishes.  

We suggest complete kits to make your dream board on 11/11 or 11:11 because these kits have everything you need to make a vision board on the spot.  You won’t need to have a collection of magazines or buy other supplies as they have everything needed to make a dream board.

The Vision Cloud’s Vision Board Magazine Kit is one of these kits we highly recommend.  It comes complete with a sturdy board, Velcro adhesives to mount your board on the wall, a magazine with over 500 images and words to put on your board, as well as a goal-setting worksheet, and other essential supplies for dream board making.


An altar is a place where you place things that represent your beliefs and desires.  You can put religious figures, crystals, candles, and pictures of things you want to manifest, as well as flowers, fruits, food, and other forms of offerings.

Choose a place that’s quiet, near doors or windows, and make sure it’s placed against a solid wall.  Placing it near windows or doors allow good energy to flow through your altar, and the solid wall creates a strong foundation that prevents your altar from getting blown by the wind or getting bumped by other people in your home.

Create a safe space where you can meditate, visualize, or pray in front of your altar.  Light a candle, dim the lights, play soothing music, and start meditating about your intentions.

Use this altar to help you stay focused on what’s important to you.  Set aside time each day to meditate and visualize the life that you want to attract.

Rituals are an effective way to manifest your dreams.  It prepares you to practice manifestation techniques and helps you stay focused, remove anxieties, and keep you calm.  

The Earth is filled with energies that can help you raise your vibrational frequency, so you can match the very things that you desire.

Use these rituals to manifest your dream life, and harness the power of the elements of the earth to transform your dreams into reality.
