Spells, Rituals, and Practices to Bring More Love into Your Life

You may not realize this, but you are casting spells every day. Each time you set an intention, focus on that intention, and look for the results, you are enacting a sort of spell. Maybe you don’t call it a spell, but may you call it a ritual. Perhaps you slip into your silk kimono robe every morning, brush your hair, wash your face, and tell yourself the three most important things you’re going to do that day. You are using the ritual of wearing your floral kimono robe, filling your focus with your intention to accomplish those three things, and activating your intention with a physical or tangible act that correlates — brushing your hair and washing your face as if to enter an organized and clear state of inner being and outer being. Maybe you don’t think of it as a spell, but it certainly acts as one!

Spells, rituals, and practices all mean a similar thing. We conjoin the inner and outer realities of our worlds through a series of events that allows us to drop into the present tense and be our most powerful, most impactful selves. So this Valentine’s Day, we want to use this very common spell-casting practice to bring more love into your life. Whether you are attached or single, in community or spending time alone this Valentine’s Day, you deserve all the love in the world. Sometimes it just takes a bit of intention to connect with it. So in today’s journal post, we’re going to offer a few love spells, rituals, and practices that you can use to bring more love into your life, today and always.

A Spell Practice to Fall in Love with Yourself

For this practice, you’re going to need your favorite plus size kimono robe or ‘one size fits most’ kimono robe. You’ll need some beautiful paper, and the pen you love to write with the most. You’ll also need a candle and a song that makes you feel like yourself. To begin, wrap up in your favorite floral kimono robe and allow the silky material to feel soft and luxurious against your shoulder. Next, find a quiet spot in your home, light a candle and find a comfortable seat. Sit with your pen and paper and set your intention to fall more deeply in love with yourself. You might even hold the picture of yourself as a young child in your mind’s eye to generate some compassion and tenderness toward yourself. Then, once you’re listening to your music, smelling the candle, feeling your silk kimono robe against your skin, write a list of things you love about yourself. Make the list as long as possible. Luxuriate in the feeling of care, reverence, delight, and respect for yourself. If it feels good, once you’re done, fold up the paper and keep it in a safe place and read it again whenever you need a lift.

A Spell to Fall in Love

For this spell, we’re taking the idea of bringing more love into your life and extending it out beyond yourself. In a similar way to the first ritual, make this a quiet and centered moment. Slip into your men’s kimono wrap, or plus size kimono robe, or anything else that makes you feel romantic, sensual, and connected with your gentleness. Then, find a quiet place where you can sit comfortably – either on meditation pillow, a chair, or even lying down on the floor. Allow your thoughts to first fall on our floral kimono wrap. Feel the way it touches your shoulders and experience the softness of how it gently wraps around your body. Then take your attention to your feet, feel how they connect with the ground. And your hands, feel how there is energy flowing through them. Now meditate on how it feels to be in love. Envision how it feels to be in love in your mind. Perhaps it feels energizing or comforting. Perhaps it fills you with calm or deepens your breath. Try to be specific about it. Imagine how it feels to be in love, and imagine feeling that way right now. Stay in this place for at least five minutes, and keep coming back to it whenever it slips away. End your practice with the intention to feel this way once a day  — even if it’s a small check in you do in the morning while you’re brushing your teeth. And then start to see how more love filters into your life bit by bit.

A Spell to Receive Love 

One important part of a spell is the physical and tangible component. When you can bring the mental energy of the spell through a tangible object, you’re uniting your inner and outer worlds. This ritual is a beautiful one to practice receiving love. Allowing yourself to feel loved starts with knowing what would make you feel good. Perhaps you are someone who needs time to themselves, so carving out downtime makes you feel good. Or perhaps you’re someone who loves gifts, so a new silk kimono robe would delight you the most. For this ritual, choose a gift to give yourself. Perhaps you pick up one of our floral kimono robes and even add on the Furoshiki Gift Wrap service to elevate your gift to yourself even more. Once you receive your gift, whether it’s time or food or jewelry or a floral kimono robe or a new meditation pillow, take time to explore it. Take time to enjoy receiving it. Appreciate the details of it, and inspect it from all angles so you’re really taking it in and not just tossing it aside. How you receive this gift will be an intention for how you will receive the gift of love. If you take care of the gift, it will only keep giving to you.

We’d love to know if you try any of these love spells! Let us know in the comments or tag us on social @kimandono_ and #swaythisway so we can see your love rituals in practice. And no matter how you’re spending this Valentine’s Day, we’re sending you lots of love!
