It can be used to help make New Year’s resolutions stick by providing an extra layer of support and motivation.

Make a Magical Wish Jar
A wish jar is a magical tool used to manifest one’s desires. It is a simple ritual that involves writing down your wishes and placing them in a jar or container. The idea is that by writing down your wishes, you are committing to them and setting an intention for the universe to help make them come true. This ritual can be used to help make New Year’s resolutions stick.
You only need a few supplies to create a wish jar.
- Jar or container
- Paper and pen
- Herbs, crystals, charms, or other items (optional)
Write Resolutions on Slips of Paper
Write your resolutions on slips of paper and place them in the jar. You can also add herbs, crystals, charms, or other items to the jar to help manifest your desires. As you write each resolution, focus on it and set an intention for it to come true.
Cast a Spell to Make Them Come True
The purpose of this spell is to empower the wish jar and set an intention for the universe to help make the resolutions come true. By focusing on each resolution and visualizing it coming true, you are committing to it and creating a powerful energy that will help manifest your desires.
The candle symbolizes the light of transformation, while the herbs, crystals, charms, or other items represent the elements that will help bring your resolutions to life. Finally, the spell or chant is a way of thanking the universe for its assistance in making your dreams come true.
- Light a candle and focus on your resolutions.
- Visualize each resolution coming true.
- Say a spell or chant to empower the jar. Something like, “I call upon the four directions to help me manifest my desires. I thank the universe for its assistance in making my dreams come true.”
- Place the slips of paper in the jar and add herbs, crystals, charms, or other items if desired.
- Close the jar and seal it with a ribbon or string.
- Place the jar somewhere special where you can see it every day as a reminder of your commitment to your resolutions.
Perform a Ritual to Express Commitment and Set Intentions
This New Year’s, don’t just make resolutions – perform a ritual to express your commitment to making them come true and set your intentions for the year ahead.
Witchcraft can be used to enhance your magical powers to help you keep your resolution going strong.
Your ritual will involve calling in the elements of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. You will use them to draw an energetic boundary around your desired feelings and goals that you’ll then infuse with energy!
You’ll light some incense and meditate on what it is you want to manifest in the coming year. Then, as candles burn, express gratitude for all that has been achieved and make wishes for yourself. To conclude, raise your hands up towards the sky to seal the pact and release the intentions into the Universe.
Tools needed for this ritual:
- Bowl of soil or plant
- Chalice of water
- Pen and paper for writing down intentions
Create Sacred Space
Creating a sacred space is an important part of any ritual. Begin by clearing the area and setting up your altar with items that represent the elements of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. ]
For Earth, choose something like a crystal, a bowl of soil, or a plant. For Air, use feathers or incense. For Fire, light candles or a fire in the fireplace. And for Water, grab a cup or chalice of water.
Once your altar is set up, take some time to ground yourself and connect to the energy of the Earth. To do this, stand with your feet firmly planted on the ground and take some deep breaths. Call to Gaia, the Earth Mother, and ask her to lend you her strength and support.
Set Your Intentions
Write about setting your intentions using the power of air and fire:
Once you have created your sacred space, it’s time to set your intentions. Start by writing down what it is you want to manifest in the coming year. Focus on positive affirmations and be as specific as possible. Once you have written them down, light a candle and read them aloud. As you do this, visualize each intention becoming reality and infuse it with energy from the flame of the candle.
Burn the affirmations in the fire, and use the element of air to carry the smoke to the gods.
Smoke and air are powerful elements that can be used to carry wishes to the gods. As you burn your affirmations, visualize the smoke carrying your intentions up to the heavens. Ask the gods to bless your intentions and help you manifest them in the coming year. Feel free to add a prayer or chant as you do this, expressing gratitude for all that has been achieved and asking for guidance on your journey ahead.
Meditate and Visualize Successful Outcome
Meditating and visualizing a successful outcome is an important part of any ritual. After you have set your intentions, take some time to sit in stillness and meditate on them. Visualize yourself achieving each goal and feeling the joy that comes with it. Feel the emotions of success and allow yourself to bask in the glory of accomplishment.
As you meditate, imagine a bright light surrounding you, protecting and guiding you on your journey.
Douse the fire with water from the chalice, finishing the ritual with the element of Water. Pour the rest of the water into the plant you chose to represent Earth, or outside in the garden.
Create a Charm or Talisman for Reminders
Are your New Year’s resolutions feeling like a distant memory? Have you forgotten about them all together? Then creating a charm or talisman is definitely something you should try.
Making a charm or talisman to help remind you of your New Year’s resolutions is the perfect spell. It’s an easy and fun ritual activity, and it infuses both power and magic into whatever goals you set out to accomplish.
To create a magical reminder, start by gathering up whatever items have meaning for your goals—a bead, a stone, or a feather that evokes the energy you desire—and placing them in your pocket as a reminder throughout the day of your intentions. You can also tie these items onto bracelets or wear them around your neck.
Adding sigils to this charm or talisman really takes it to the next level! Sigils work like miniature spells and will add additional powerful energy behind achieving what you set out do in the new year. Creating these little symbols are part art, part meditation—so take your time with design and engrave your intentions into these objects before charging them with energy!
Once you’ve finished creating your charm or talisman, keep it with you and use it as a reminder of your New Year’s resolutions. With the help of this magical reminder, you can make sure that your resolutions stick!
Use Candle Magic for Manifestation
If you’re looking to make your New Year’s resolutions stick, try utilizing the power of candle magic. How does this work, you ask?
Candle magic is a form of manifestation – it harnesses your intentions and puts them into physical form, symbolic form or both. It’s ancient and incredibly powerful.
By focusing the energy from a burning candle, and aligning this energy with an intention, you can tap into the cosmic forces to manifest what it is that you desire in life: your goals, dreams, hopes and wishes.
So if you want to start the New Year on a magical note and leverage candle magic for manifesting your desires, here are some tips to consider.
- First determine exactly what it is that you want to manifest — in other words, clearly state your intention.
- Select the right candle color for your intention – each color has different energies associated with it – and then carve symbols into your candle that will help reinforce the emotions associated with what it is that you desire to manifest.
- Finally, light your candle and focus on creating positive thoughts while releasing all of the doubts and fears that may arise during this process!
By using candle magic to manifest your New Year’s resolutions, you can make them stick and create the life that you desire.
