IN MANY CLASSIC TRADITIONS, MAINTAINING YOUR MAGICKAL TOOLS IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS WHAT YOU DO WITH THEM.

Many of us are hyper-concerned with what we are accomplishing magickally speaking. We try and take care of issues by using crystal grids, herbs, and intention. We put our power into the universe, and seek returns. That is AMAZING, and we have never been so empowered in our ability to manipulate our lives through magick and energy manipulation. 

There’s a very important message a lot of you need to hear, however.

⛥ Staying hydrated is just as potent and important as water magick.

⛥ Lighting some candles for tranquility can be just as empowering as fire magick.

⛥ Studying for class can be taken in an artistic and magickal lens. People are inherently magickal…everything they do operates on that law. Be it science, math, history, architecture – it doesn’t matter. There’s something magickal about it.

⛥ Diet and Exercise can be completely magickal. The energy that we put into our bodies is just as important as what we send out of them.

⛥ Communing with and playing with your pets can be just as important as a conversation with a spirit guide.

There is enlightenment everywhere you look. Everything around you is made of divine stuff – therefore none of it is superfluous. 

Many magicians cleanse and charge their crystals, clean and dust their altars, and do everything they can to maintain their magickal space.

Your body is your temple – your mind is the ultimate crystal grid. You are inherently divine and need to be maintained in the same way you maintain the physical and metaphysical world around you.

Treat your body, mind, and soul with the same reverence you bring forward to your spirit companions, to your crystals, your tomes, your altars.

Self care is the most potent form of witchcraft because it has immediate returns.

Bless yourself and you can change the surrounding world.

Treat your shrines and artifacts with reverence, but do the same for yourself.

Do all things with the knowledge that you are working with a highly energetic and potent network, and that you are one of the most important plugs into that network.

                                                                                    and so it is!

You don’t need to work at getting healthy; health is something you already have if you don’t disturb it.
You may have disturbed your healthy body by overfeeding it, under-exercising it and overstimulating it with toxins or drugs that make it sick, fatigued, jumpy, anxious, depressed, bloated, ornery or an endless list of maladies. You can live a life of self-respect by honoring the temple that houses you. You know what to do. You don’t need another diet, workout manual or personal trainer. Go within, listen to your body and treat it with all of the dignity and love that your self-respect demands.

You deserve it. You are enough💛

ITS OKAY TO STRUGGLE!
So last night I was scrolling through my feed on Instagram and I was just seeing all these girls who were showing off their beautiful looks, their progress which is always very inspiring to me!! but I found myself starting to pick myself apart wishing I had their hair, skin, curves, muscles, etc. I was thinking about ways I could change myself to try and look like them, and feeling like I wasn’t good enough and why should I even try to reach my goals when I’m never going to look like them. When I caught myself thinking these terrible things about myself, I had to take a step back put the phone down and breath. I reminded myself that no I’m not ever going to look like them and thats OKAY because everyone is different and unique in their own way! And instead of tearing myself down I started to build myself up with kind words and things that make me a good strong person. Social media is a great thing, but is can also be a very toxic place. It’s okay to struggle and have these little moments because it reminds us that we are all human. The most important thing to do is to love yourself, say and think positive things about yourself because you are beautiful just the way you are and you DO NOT need to change yourself what so ever! ❤

🔮witchy tips🔮

🔮don’t be afraid to chant/speak during your spells. many people hold back from chant in their spells, or don’t give forward all of their energy when they chant. i am guilty of this as well. if you have a verbal piece in your spell, rock it, whether you’re in a coven, or alone. your spell will suffer if you do not pour your energy into it. dont be afraid! work it witch!

🔮don’t be afraid to use foreign language in your spells. although it is not completely necessary, different languages in spells are a tool that is at your fingertips. try it! you might like spell work in another language. 

🔮don’t be afraid to ask for help. if there is a certain topic you are confused on, ask someone in the community. don’t hold back from any questions. use your fellow witches as a recourse. if you have any questions, (although i’m still new myself,) you can come to me!

🔮defend your beliefs. many people imagine witches to be worshippers of satan. people believe that we sacrifice humans and sheep for spell work. you and i both know that this isn’t true, so, defend yourself! spread light on the craft. put into the world only what you wish would come to you. 

🔮be yourself in the craft. don’t hide yourself from other witches, and don’t hide your beliefs from others. it’s a beautiful world in which some scary people live, but personally, i believe our beliefs should be celebrated. celebrate yourself, because your gods and goddesses would want that for you.

love,

What does self-love mean to you?

To me, self-love means self-acceptance & self-compassion.

It means being AWARE of your thoughts, words, actions & reactions.

It means REALIZING that you are human.

It means knowing that you are NOT what happened to you.

It means LETTING GO of the idea of perfection.

It means being able to FORGIVE yourself.

It means trusting in yourself & your abilities.

It means being able to recognize your worth and your value.

It means being grateful for what you DO have.

It means showing up in your life and being FULLY interested. (no half ass anything)

Self-love means being AUTHENTICALLY and UNAPOLOGETICALLY you.

But know that the journey of self-love is Not an overnight process.

You must go through pain, darkness, self-doubt, shame, guilt, loneliness, solitude, obscurity & many unpleasant feelings before you discover your own beauty.

Don’t go looking for love outside of yourself. It’s already within you!
