Perhaps you’ve seen images of real ceremonial magicians, with their robes, wands and other paraphernalia. Maybe you’ve seen Wiccans, with all of the things they have on their altars. Do you really need all that… stuff?
The ability to manifest things you want doesn’t require all of those tools, but I do use them. Why? Because I like them! Using them triggers something within me that helps me be more successful in the work I do. I’ve spent years acquiring and using them. They’re like a part of me.
But I don’t have to use them to be successful. In fact, you can carry an entire set of tools in your purse or pocket. You can find all of the tools you need in a standard Tarot deck.
You don’t need a book or a wise old wizard to instruct you. Just look at the images and let them fire your imagination. Here are some of my ideas to give you a start:

When you look at the cards, you may discover that your ideas of what an image means might be different—and that’s fine. The key is to simply use the image on a card to trigger your imagination. The next step is to send that image lots of energy and let it go. Here’s what you do:
Step One: If you don’t have a Tarot deck, get one. I suggest going on the Internet and looking at a wide variety of decks, then choosing the one that has the biggest impact on you.
Step Two: Decide on your goal. What do you want to manifest in your life? Love and romance? Better health or finances? The more you want it and the more realistic your goal is, the quicker it will be achieved. Look through your Tarot deck and choose a card that reflects that goal. Remember, it doesn’t matter what any book or authority says. Use your imagination!
Step Three: Take a candle into a dark room and light it. Now, just watch. In a few moments, you should notice that there is a golden glow around the flame. Remember what it looks like and put out the candle.
Step Four: In a dimly-lit room, take the card you selected and hold it in your left hand. Make sure there is nothing in the room that could be knocked over or that might hurt you if you bump into it. Relax and spend a few moments breathing deeply. Now, recall that glow around the candle flame and imagine it surrounding your heart. Allow that glow to expand until it fills the room, sending away any unwanted energy.
Step Five: While standing in the room, hold your left hand straight out to the left side and bend the wrist in so that you can see the card when you look to your left. Continue to stare at the card as you begin to spin in place, turning counterclockwise. Just stare at the card as you spin faster and faster. Continue until you get so dizzy or so tired that you can’t spin any more.
Step Six: Allow yourself to fall onto a bed, sofa, chair, or the floor and just laugh and laugh and laugh!
The spinning and focus on the card sends a combination of energy and the image to your unconscious mind. It literally tells your unconscious to do everything to make your goal manifest. Repeat steps four to six once a day. If any negative thoughts come up during the day, just spend a few minutes thinking of the image on your card, making it as vivid as possible.
Don’t be surprised when you manifest your goal!
