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!
