Hello fellow witchies! First off I always like to thank you, the reader for taking time out of your day to visit my inspirational blog.
In “Witchery Basics 101” I will discuss what you need to create your own MAGICK! , what ALTAR TOOLS are all about and DO YOU REALLY NEED AN ALTAR to create magick??
In my “Introduction” page I mention the definition of Witchcraft BUT! what all does one need to become a witch?!? Are you ready to hear this?
Yourself and Your intent!
Magick requires Imagination and Will. What you Think can and probably will become your reality. Think of “The Law of Attraction” for an example. What you think and do becomes your own reality.
Soo if you look at the world in a positive light, state of mind your chances of living a comfortable, more enjoyable life GREATLY INCREASES rather than being someone of negativity and holding onto grudges, past hurt feelings are more likely to have GREATER chances of living a NOT SO ENJOYABLE LIFE and honestly who wants a life that cant be enjoyed??
Three easy steps to remember when proforming Magick and creating the LIFE you want:
Step 1) THINK IT.
Step 2) VISUALIZE IT.
Step 3) PERSUE IT.
Magick is the magical manipulation of energy to bring about change. You see our bodies are surrounded by energy, known as Aura and everything that exist is connected by ENERGY. This is why the three steps work. When you think of something and visualize the thought it can and will become real even if you didnt intended for it to happen, known as “The Law of Atrraction”, Cause and effect result.
Lets discuss some basics of Witchcraft practices and tools that can help with what I will discuss and offer on Tea’s Twigg & Staff! So I just discussed that tools are not necessary to create Magick because Magick resides inside of us all. BUT! tools can assist us in our Witchy work and I do enjoy working with magick tools myself. I want to add that I am pretty much a Thrifty Witch and the tools and ingridients for the practices I do can easily be picked up at any local shops near you at low prices. Honestly majority of my own tools I came across were found outside or cost less than $3.00 an item! I enjoy working with RAW NATURAL TOOLS such as Crystals, Feathers, Seashells, Plants/Herbs. The most expensive item on my altar is my Book of Shadows, I spent $10.00 on it! I only stress not having to break your wallet to have magick altar tools and supplies because when I was starting out on my own journey with the craft I believed that I needed all these EXTRAVAGANT ITEMS to create magick, WHICH IS NOT TRUE.
Some Basic Altar Tools you can choose to have:
- Candles, Used to invoke
- Incense holder, Cleanse area energetically, shift consciousness
- Oil burner, Same as incense holder
- An item representing one or more Deities, Holds vibrations of Divine
- Wand, Divination and channeling magickal energies
- Candle holder, Protects altar cloth
- Book of Shadows, Holds your spells, rituals, etc
- Chalice (cup) ,Offerings
- Athame (dagger type weapon) ,Helps direct Energy
- Cauldron, Holds witches brews or burn loose herbs
- Crystals, Helps with grounding
Why would you use Altar tools to assist you in magick??
Having magickal tools at hand can make you the witch focused, disciplined and aware when practicing ritual or magickal workings.
Now that I have discussed using magick tools also known as ALTAR TOOLS not being necessary but a GREAT addition with assisting us with our magick practices I should also mention…
Does being a Witch mean you need to use an ALTAR??
You do not need an altar to practice/create magick. An altar is a space you can choose to keep your altar tools on. Some altars are dedicated to Deities. For myself my altar is set up to honor the 5 ELEMENTS. Earth, Water, Air, Fire, and Spirit. I use my altar to leave my altar tools on and me personally I cast spells only at my altar.
If having an Altar sounds like something you’d like to persue thats awesome! If not theres nothing wrong with that either.
This has been my post on “Witchery Basics 101” We learned a lot. Creating magick from within ourselves, Magick altar tools being useful, afforable but not needed and what an altar is all about.
Thank you for reading!!
