I want to offer you some encouragement. Sometimes, you might get busy with your mundane life, and feel like you’re ignoring your practice/witchy skills/deities etc. I just want you to know that literally everyone goes through this, sometimes for months at a time. And if you’re conscious that you’re not practicing/honouring as much as you’d like to be, that’s not ignoring. You’re thinking about it, and that’s great!
All people go through times when they don’t practice a skill or work on a hobby, or even worship their God(s)/deities. I didn’t pick up my crochet project for two months, haven’t touched a paint brush in a year or so, It’s been a few weeks since I worked with tarot, and I’m sure you’ve noticed I haven’t been active on here for a while.. but that doesn’t make me any less of a crochet geek/artist/witch/witchy blogger.
Instead of focusing on what you /haven’t/ been doing, try to see what other things you’ve been doing, improving on or focusing on in that time. I may not have read any cards, but I have studies more herbal medicine. I may not have touched a crochet hook, but I have started cleaning a bit more often. I may not have touched a paint brush, but I have taken quiet time to myself and started planting and garden planning.
And even if you can’t possibly see any good things you’ve done while not practicing your craft, skill or hobby… if it feels like you’ve done absolutely nothing productive.. That’s okay too. I know it’s not fun, and it’s easy to get so frustrated with yourself that you shut down..just know that you’re not alone and if you need a boost in the right direction, there’s a whole lovely community of us to help you out. If you don’t have the energy to do much of anything, ask a fellow witch to perform a motivational spell for you, or ask their cards what you can do to get you moving.
I’m always here to listen, and help in any way I can.
