Want to bring more Psyche qualities into your life?
Everything you do to nurture your own spirituality and soulfulness
will help enlarge the influence of Psyche.
Some suggestions follow:

Work on becoming more trusting, even if it means risking rejection. Take the initiative, reach out and let others know how you feel about them.

Get rid of the clutter in your house by letting go of all the objects you don't use, leaving only those you still love. Set aside a couple of hours to begin to "sort the seeds" (one of the tasks that Aphrodite assigned to Psyche).   Light a candle and put on music to help make this a sacred experience. Look at, and touch, every object in the room, asking yourself whether you need to keep this object or let it go. As you clear out the items you don't need, place them in a box that you can seal. Bless the objects you wish to keep by holding each one lovingly in your hands while concentrating on how  beautiful it is or how much it means to you. By putting your love and energy into the objects in your home, it will become a sacred space.
(Note:  If  you find it very difficult to get rid of things, just take the box, seal it, and write a date six months from now on the lid, store the box in an out-of-sight location for 6 months, and then discard it. You will be reassured that you can still   find anything you need. After 6 months you will have forgotten the contents of the box and will feel free to let them go.)

Psyche teaches us that we can share her ability to transform ourselves from women crippled by stress to  wondrous creatures that shine with radiant light. When your mood is dark, use her energy to lift your chin up and pull your shoulder's back. Gaze inward and ask what is causing you such angst? Visualize your problem rolling itself into a ball, and then see yourself picking it up and throwing it into the distance.

Splurge your allowance on a fancy diary and put it by your bedside to keep a record of your dreams. Record what you remember of them when you awaken,  and express your thoughts and feelings about them as well. From time to time look over your entries and see what your dreams are trying to tell you. Let your unconscious, inner voice be your guide!

No matter how busy you might be, set aside some time each day to think about what is going on in your life and what you are feeling...take just a few minutes to give them your full attention and some quiet appreciation. You'll find yourself a  person who is much more confident and centered.

Psyche's symbol, the butterfly, is the symbol of the soul, representing transformation and rebirth. Honor Psyche by planting a butterfly garden. Lilacs, cosmos, asters, and coreopsis will attract them to your garden.

Take care that your passionate energy, like Psyche's, is leading you in the right direction, especially in matters of the heart. When you need to cut your losses and channel your energy in  more rewarding ways, visualize what you want to happen and repeat it often . . . until your positive thoughts become a habit, and your intentions become a reality!

Remember that, like Psyche, you can be clever and resourceful. Recall her lessons:   Do not be afraid to ask for help when you need it, and most importantly, allow others to help you.

Place a melodious wind chime outside your window. Set a tabletop fountain on your desk to bring peaceful energy and sound into your office.  To summarize,  incorporate objects that create the feeling of sanctuary where your spirit can flourish.

Dress in the colors of Psyche, and think of her appreciatively as you feast on a breakfast of toast spread with fig jam served with slices of melon! Throw a cuddly wool afghan on the sofa, and decorate your refigerator with butterfly magnets. Surround yourself with Psyche's symbols .
