How to Cast a Happiness Spell. Long before modern medicine existed, it was common practice for people to look to spiritual guides to remedy their ailments, both physical and mental. Pagan witches, despite their nefarious reputations.

were a particularly powerful source of healing. “For as long as we know, witches have been healers, midwives, and spiritual forces in their communities,” explains Skye Alexander, a practicing witch for more than 20 years and the author of 13 books about witchcraft, including The Modern Guide to Witchcraft and The Modern Witchcraft Spell

Book. “They understood … how to use herbal remedies to aid everything from a broken bone to a broken heart. Following a Wiccan path helps us connect with our own power, which can ease depression and anxiety.

Smudge Your Space

White Sage Incense Stick


Smudging is an ancient practice that energetically cleanses a space using the power of herbs and smoke. “The spaces that we occupy are sponges for all kinds of energy, some good and some that we would rather not have around us,” Johnson explains. “Smudging is a great way to energetically clear and reset our space and ourselves.

Sage is often the go-to herb for smudging because it works to clear out old, stagnant energy. But it’s so powerful that it also clears out positive energy too, so after smudging, you’ll need to replenish the space with good vibes, using materials like palo santo or sweetgrass. According to Dr. Sanam Hafeez, there is specific preliminary support for the use of sage in that of mood and memory. “A 2005 study showed that common sage improved memory and cognition (thinking ability),” she reports. “In addition, increased dosages were related to improvements in mood, and feeling alert, calm, and content.

Check out Johnson’s two-part smudging spell below:


  • White sage (either loose or bundled)
  • Palo Santo stick and/or a Sweetgrass braid
  • Lighter

Light the sage and guide it in clockwise, circular motions around whichever space you wish to smudge, starting from the back of the room and working toward the front. “You will need to make sure that you clear each corner, shadow spaces, and door and window sills,” Johnson says. Then light your palo santo stick or sweetgrass and repeat the same steps How to Cast a Happiness Spell.

  • 1 cup Epsom salts
  • 1/2 cup coarse Himalayan pink salt
  • 20 drops of your favorite essential oils (Genova recommends eight drops lavender, six drops rosemary, three drops geranium, and three drops rose, a special illuminating blend she calls Speak Your Truth)

Instructions: Mix your potion in an upcycled glass jar; then, it’s time to infuse it with positivity. To do this, simply hold your hands over the open jar of salts and, in Genova’s words, “imagine that love is flowing from an infinite supply within your heart, down your arms, through your hands, and into the salts.”

Whip Up This Energy Elixir

Healing Crystals Tumbled Rutilated Quartz 

Feeling lethargic? “When you need a quick pick-me-up that’s all-natural and caffeine- and sugar-free, drink this magic Energy Elixir to boost your mood and clear your mind,” says Alexander.


  • A clear glass bottle with a cap or stopper
  • A small piece of rutilated quartz crystal
  • Spring water
  • A few drops of the following essential oils: peppermint or spearmint, lemon, and sweet orange
  • The Strength card from a tarot deck


After assembling your materials, wash the glass bottle and the quartz crystal with mild soap and water, and let them dry. Next, cast a circle around the area where you want to do your spell (here’s a little tutorial on how to cast a basic magic circle).

Fill the bottle with spring water, add your essential oils, and then add the crystal. Cap the bottle and shake it three times to charge it. Next, place the Strength card face up on a table or altar. Set the bottle on top of the card and leave it there for at least 10 minutes, long enough for the water to absorb the energy of the card. Finally, remove the crystal from the bottle, open your circle up, and sip this “supercharged elixir” for a serious energy boost.

Cast a Musical Spell

Don’t worry, you don’t have to sing. Instead, this spell makes use of a drumming motion, which stimulates acupressure and reflexology points on your hands to produce mood-elevating benefits. “Because the beats harmonize with the beating of your own heart, drumming makes you feel joyful and alive,” says Alexander.


  • Sandalwood incense
  • An incense burner
  • Matches or a lighter
  • Brightly colored ribbons
  • A hand drum (for instance, a djembe, dumbek, or conga)
  • The Sun card from a tarot deck you don’t use for readings


Start by lighting your incense. Then tie as many ribbons around the drum as you like and affix The Sun card to the drum (you could probably slip it under one of its strings) with the image facing out. How to Cast a Happiness Spell

Begin tapping on the drum with both hands. “Don’t worry about how you sound or whether you’re doing it right. Just play,” Alexander advises. “Feel the drum’s vibrations resonating through your hands, arms, and body. Feel it breaking up the dense, depressing energy around you.” If you feel the urge to close your eyes, mix up your beat, or even play along to a track of lively music, that’s cool—just keep your mind focused on the drumming. “You may hear singing or sense the presence of nonphysical beings near you—for drumming attracts fun-loving spirits,” says Alexander. “Repeat this spell whenever you start feeling blue to quickly shift your emotions to a higher vibration.
