Remember to Hydrate
Physical Self-Care

How can you forget something so simple as drinking water? Easily. You reach for caffeine to help you perk up and stay awake; you reach for soda for sweetness; you drink smoothies to maximize your protein or fruit-and-vegetable intake. (Okay, that last one isn’t so bad.) But most people do need a lot more plain water than they actually drink.

How do you remind yourself to drink water? Try this spell for making and programming a reusable cup to help you hydrate more and bring good health toward you.

Making a Magical Water Bottle

Even better than just purchasing and using a pretty cup is programming a container to draw health and happiness toward you, providing positive energy to draw into your body with every sip!

What You Need:

♦ Reusable bottle or cup with lid and straw

♦ Blank sheet of paper (8" × 10")

♦ Clear quartz crystal stone

♦ Rose quartz stone

♦ Sharpie marker (permanent ink)

What to Do:

1. Before you start, wash and dry the bottle or cup.

2. Center and ground.

3. Lay the blank piece of paper in the center of your work space. Place the bottle in the center of the paper. Place the clear quartz crystal a couple of inches behind the cup, and the rose quartz a couple of inches in front of it. With the Sharpie, draw an arrow leading from the clear quartz to the bottle, then from the bottle to the rose quartz. Draw a final arrow from the rose quartz pointing to you.

4. Say:

Bottle, be for me an element in caring for my optimal health.

Deliver hydration so that my body’s thirst is quenched,

So that my skin glows,

So that my body is washed clean of toxins.

Each sip draws happiness to me. I drink in joy and positive energy.

It is so!

5. Pick up the bottle, turn it over, and write your name on the bottom of it. Say, “With this I seal the spell.

6. Bring it to work, and hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
