Welcome to Part 2 of the Relationship series, discussing Self Love And Starting Over. For those who skipped Part 1 on Relationships And Cord Cutting, it is best to start there.

Relationships Part 1 - Cord Cutting, spiritual blog & advice,

If you are here, it means you have successfully moved on from old hurts and traumas associated with your past lover/s. And you managed to cut the cords that were preventing you from moving forward. Congrats! So, the next question is, How do we invite love in again without attracting the same situations or people as before?

​First *This is the most important step – Be sure you’re ready to move on fully with a new partner.  Make sure you are doing it for the right reasons as well, deciding to get back in the game and trying to find your soulmate are two extremes of the same scale but both should be done with caution after exiting a long term or any sort of meaningful romantic relationship.

For most of us moving on can take weeks or even years depending on how much healing there is to do, or how low our own self-worth is. Or for some, it’s the mere idea of going out and meeting new people that’s the scariest part. Where does one meet a like-minded, genuine person these days that isn’t caught up in the superficial things in life, or glued to their cell phone or tablet? Where does one find a person who doesn’t let their baggage or their past determine their present, who can you trust and feel comfortable with, enough to share that intimate part of yourself again and let them in?


We all know the trick to meeting new people, is to put ourselves into new and different situations. We must put ourselves out there in order to open up to new things and experiences.  With the Corona Virus, this has presented a challenge in itself as we are all confined now and all public meetings are no longer the norm or even possible in some places. We are discouraged from physical contact and have been instilled with a fear that is promoting social distance. Although for good reason, it still makes it that much harder for people who are ready to connect again. There are already so many lonely people all over the planet who now have even less chance than before of finding someone special to share their love and time with.

​Do not be deterred however, do not let the fear and uncertainty in the world right now consume you and affect your ability to feel and spread love. Just because we cannot physically meet new people at the moment, doesn’t mean there aren’t other platforms to chat and engage with like-minded individuals and connect with other souls that assist in igniting our own spark again.


Being alone is important. Learning to enjoy our own company and appreciate ourselves is often very uncomfortable when a relationships ends. But remember to be gentle with yourself as you would a new lover. Be sure to give yourself patience and understanding during your healing process, we each work at our own pace. Healing our past hurts helps us to change our patterns and better attract what we actually want and need in a partner. By learning to love ourselves we start to realize what we really deserve in terms of love and finding a partner. This is why you will find it beneficial to try the Self Love methods first before trying to attract or manifest someone new into your life.

Wishing you all love and light on your personal healing journeys.

Shadow Work: what it is and how to do it, spiritual blog & advice,

Below are some methods for Self Love as well as for Attracting A New Romance Into Your Life

love begins from within, self love,


Spiritual Baths are a wonderful way to cleanse the spirit and start attracting more of what you want. They are very powerful and don’t need to be done too often. They say twice a month (if need be) should be enough, obviously depending on what kind of baths you are doing and the reasons for them.

*Example: this Love Bath can be used either for Self Love intentions or for Attracting a Love Partner to you. 

rituals for self love, spiritual bath, love bath ritual, self love bath rituals,


Self love baths can be done anytime you’re maybe feeling low, or need to give yourself some extra TLC and ME TIME!

While attraction or manifestation spells should be done once ideally with clear and pure intent. I’d give it a month between each repeat. As desperation, impatience or doing spells with the wrong intent will cause them to backfire or not come to fruition. 


​You can use any (safe) natural ingredients that symbolize love to you or spark your sensual side, to put into your bath;

me time, rituals for self love, spiritual bath,
  • Great examples would be Rose Petals, Lavender, Jasmine. Oils such as Neroli, Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood, Cinnamon etc. These things promote a sensual space and will set the mood for your Love Bath
  • You can either use the dry ingredients and sprinkle them in, or you can use a few drops of the oils over some Epsom Salts and add that to your bath. If you feel like experimenting, use a bit of both for a kick! 
  • Next and most importantly; you want to write out your intentions and say them aloud (always more powerful than in your head) during the bath or visualise them if that’s easier. The key here is to be very clear in expressing what you want or what you are trying to get out of the ritual. 
  • Your focus is very important as well as to not hold any expectations. 
  • When your bath, spell, or ritual is done, trust your magic. Accept it and move on with things. Do not fixate on it and get caught up waiting for a sign or outcome. This will only put out that desperation we mentioned earlier into the universe and will prevent your spell from being a success. 


There are some other things you can add to your rituals, spells and baths. Here are some suggestions below.

candles, sacred space, spells and rituals,
  • Candles (pink and red for love if you can. Otherwise white works just fine. You can also use green when doing work on your heart chakra.)
  • Crystals – suggestions lower down in this article. There are so many gems out there, these are just a few to assist in self love, self worth, self esteem, compassion and forgiveness of self.
  • Please do not put your crystals in the bathwater. Just having them around your space will let you tap into that energy. While some are water safe, hot water is not an option.
  • ​Using background music can also help to create a special space and ambience for your rituals if chosen with intent. Basically, like any spell or ritual, everything needs to be chosen for a specific purpose. Everything has a purpose. Even your music. If you prefer a quiet space, that’s fine too.


  • ​Remember when working with essential oils, often less is more. If you have some incense in these scents you can also substitute and burn these.
  • ​A Spiritual Bath is all about creating a sacred space and a fresh start. Some say you shouldn’t even wash yourself in this bath, you should shower or bath properly before for the sole purpose of cleansing yourself and then separately prepare and lie in your Spiritual Bath for  +/- 30 minutes and soak in your intentions. 


Road Opening Work is used in Hoodoo and Voodoo as well as Mexican Folk Magick traditions. The use of oils or herbs used with the specific intent to unblock your path and remove obstacles that are preventing your manifestations, and ability to move forward. This stagnation can apply to various areas including Love, Career or Money.  Again, there are many recipes online and in books so do your own research and see what herbs, oils and scents speak out to you.

These will assist in opening your heart chakra and releasing built-up hurts and pain in order to move forward properly.

  • Lemon Balm
  • Rose
  • Geranium
  • Lemongrass
  • Dragons Blood
  • Cinnamon
  • Camphor
  • Sage
  • Vetiver
  • Basil

*You can also add in other crushed ingredients such as salt, * sulphur, crushed petals etc. As long as they are relevant to your cause. *Sulphur is potent and should be used with caution and only after doing your research.

herbs, road opening, oils, hoodoo,


  • Rose Petals
  • Rose Oil
  • Catnip
  • Geranium
  • Bergamot
  • Lavender and others discussed in the previous method for your Spiritual Baths. 
love oils, self love oils, rose oil, love oil blends,


  • ​Set up your sacred space (breathwork, calling in Guides/ Deities / Angels/ Creator to assist you) and let’s start.
  • The method can vary, most people say to use Grapeseed oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado oil or Olive Oil as a base. So you want to fill at least half a bottle with it so you have enough for a few uses or whenever the need arises. 
  • Then you want to add in a few drops of your chosen oils (maybe less of the stronger scents) maximum of 8 drops should be more than sufficient for the more subtle ones (depends on the size of the bottle as well. You don’t want to add too much of each especially when you are using multiple oils as the smell will be distracting and probably not pleasant.)
  • Focus on your intention throughout the creation process. Bless and give thanks for each ingredient as it’s added.
  • Once done mix well, you can also let it sit in the Waxing Moon (attracting new, releasing old) to charge it for the night before using it. Or you can let your oils sit for a few weeks in a dark cupboard, to increase potency and then strain that mixture into smaller bottles for use.
love oils, self love oils, rose oil, love oil blends,
  • There are many resources online that explain the best times for spell work based on the moon phases. These can be helpful to learn as the Moon will aid you in your magick. Moon Magick is very powerful if it’s something you resonate with.
  • Once you have made your oil, you can use it to anoint candles for your love road opening work or other rituals. Anoint yourself or any paper petitions you have on your altar.
  • You can also use this oil in your Spiritual Baths provided it is not too strong and doesn’t contain harmful ingredients. . 
  • *Always test your oils on a small patch of skin before going crazy with anointing. If you experience any burning or tingling rather use it for objects or items around the home and not on your skin directly.



Often, when people see or hear the word “Spell”  they get a bit scared and their minds go straight to Witchcraft and the horrors they associate with it. But in reality, a spell, like a prayer, is just a petition. It is a way to put your intentions out into the universe so they can be heard and manifested.

Using a spell is essentially giving off a call to the powers around us and the powers that be, to hear us and assist us. ​So a spell to call your soulmate then would essentially first start with a list of what it is you are trying to attract.

***Before we begin, it is important to remember, this is not to make anyone love you. Therefore using a specific persons name in your spell work (other than your own of course) is a violation of their free will, and a misuse of your power.***


spell to call your soulmate, attracting romance, finding love again, relationships part 2,
  • Sit quietly, think about what you really want in a partner.
  • Certain attributes, personality, interests, physical features even.
  • Write these out and while doing so, see this person with these qualities within your mind’s eye as you’re doing the exercise.
  • You may want to wait for a specific moon to arrive to add potency to your spells before continuing to the next part of this one. Waxing Moon and New Moon are brilliant for attracting new things into your life such as career, money and love.
  • Light a candle/s or cast a circle to create your sacred space before you start working in order to better focus your intentions. Keep the list you wrote out before and sit focusing on your candle for a moment, on your breath work, on visualising your mate.
  • When you are ready, open your eyes, and let’s write that spell!


  • There are many spells for attracting a lover or soulmate on the internet or in books and I personally wouldn’t use these as the final product. Spells are people’s own intentions so using someone else’s may not work out for you as it worked for them. The wording should come from you and from your heart so it is personal to you. Using others as a guideline is fine though and pretty helpful if you’re doing this for the first time. Even if you’re just changing a few words to make it a little more relevant or specific to your own situation or desires.
  • Say your petition out loud at least 3 times once it is done while focusing your intent.
  • Once finished, burn it with your candle and either bury the ashes or let them go in the wind or a moving body of water.
  • Know that it is done and thank whoever you believe in that they have heard your prayer and your petition will be granted if it is for your highest good.
finding your soulmate, spell to call your soulmate, rituals for love, love yourself,


  • This is important to remember – There are certain universal laws that come into play when we ask for something or try to manifest things into our lives. One should trust that if a spell didn’t come about the way in which you expected, it may be that it’s not for your soul path or highest good and that’s OK. Or it may simply not be the correct timing. Divine timing plays an important role too.
  • It could also be time to reassess your own priorities and expectations a little.
  • We also touched on the factor of free will above. Magick works in the real world just like when using a genie to make a wish, there are three rules – No wishing for death, No wishing to make someone love you – these will backfire. And No wishing for more wishes 🙂

Now all that’s left is to trust in the universe and open the way a little for the new love of your life to find you. 

Best of luck!


We have already discussed some great options for crystals that can assist in opening the Heart Chakra towards yourself and others, as well as healing old hurts.


Some wonderful crystals for Self Love and opening your Heart Chakra include; 

  • Rose Quartz
  • Strawberry Quartz
  • Rhodonite
  • Rhodochrosite
  • Aventurine
  • Jade
  • Kunzite

*Because these stones work with the heart chakra, long-term use of these (or any crystals) can cause turbulent and sometimes heightened emotions. If you start feeling overwhelmed, take a break, cleanse your crystals and let yourself breathe before trying again.

Some crystals for attracting New Love include; 

  • Pink Topaz
  • Ruby
  • Garnet
  • Rose Quartz and many more


Find some crystals that you resonate with or that are specific to what you need at the time. These can be used by; 

crystals, uses for crystals, bowl of crystals,
  • Placing them under your pillow
  • Put inside your pillowcase
  • Carried in your pockets or bras ladies! 
  • Kept in your caror handbag 
  • Being worn as jewellery

Crystals in meditation are powerful tools that can be utilized for various needs. Not all meditations have to include music and someone talking in the background; simply holding a gemstone in your hands and focusing on how it makes you feel or focusing on the intent you’d like to program it with,  is a wonderful way to connect with your crystals and accept their benefits. Use your breath to activate your crystals and store intent within them.


  • Another way to benefit from your crystals is to add them to a jug or bottle with your *purified or mineral, drinking water in order to infuse it with their healing properties.
  • For some refreshing and simply magickal iced tea, you could prepare herbal teas, let them cool completely, before adding (water safe) crystals to them, and decant the liquid into jugs for the fridge.
  • Make some moon water by leaving crystals and mineral water overnight in the full moon. This can be refrigerated and drank for an invigorating boost to your day!
  • Leave your crystals in the sunlight or moonlight to charge up and then place them in your water bottle overnight or the following day. This way, they have time to absorb all the Sun or Moon’s healing properties. 
  • Just make sure the stones you pick are large enough to not get accidentally swallowed! Or use one of those special water bottles with the filters inside for fruit and such.

What does it Mean to Love Yourself?

Loving yourself means accepting and healing your shadow self. This is the process of caring for and nurturing yourself as you would another, of accepting yourself unconditionally. The good, the bad and the ugly… Loving ourselves can seem very difficult to many of us because of how we have been conditioned or taught to think of ourselves growing up or through our relationships with others. It is never too late to start! If you are interested in starting and understanding Shadow Work, take a look at my article in my Spiritual Blog.

How Do I Move on From a Bad Breakup or Traumatic Relationship?

These things take time. Patience, understanding and alot of self love is the key to getting back on track. Taking it one day at a time, reminding yourself how strong, beautiful, amazing you are for whatever reason. Allowing yourself the time to grieve the relationship and heal those hurts. There is no set time for this. Everyone will be different based on their circumstances and the degree of their pain. The key here is to not jump into anything until you are really ready. Take the time you need to rise and set healthy boundaries for those you love and new relationships.

How Do I Stop Attracting The Wrong Partners?

Start loving yourself. Start listening to your body, mind, soul and take note of what they are whispering to you during your healing process. Start by making a list of what you will no longer settle for in a relationship and stick it up where you can see it everyday. Start by getting to know YOU before you dive into another person’s drama and baggage. Start by healing your triggers and being the partner you would like to attract. You need to know you never need a partner (or anyone) to make you whole or to fill you up. Do this for yourself and when you are ready, you will attract someone who is also independent, self confident and who knows their own worth. Thereby not undervaluing or undermining yours.
