A guided journal to unlock your own personal brand of magical self-care and discover what works best for you to nourish and celebrate your body, mind, and spirit.
Self-care belongs to everyone, and it’s especially important if you feel stretched thin. Self-care is typically portrayed as the surface-level stuff that you can spend money on. There’s nothing wrong with that, though to feel the way you want to feel at your core, step into the world where magic meets self-care. With ample writing space and inspiration, this guided journal invites you to be inquisitive, dive deep, and trust yourself and your instincts. Cultivate a kinder relationship with yourself through simple actions and routines to honor your body, mind and spirit. From moon rituals for setting aligned intentions, to tuning into intuition, breathwork for releasing stuck energy, to enhancing your life with healing crystals, movement, and meditation, you’ll be empowered. Treat yourself well and recognize your life as successive moments of magic and self-care.
