There are a recognised set of magical tools that are used in witchcraft, but as a Kitchen Witch myself I tend to be fairly flexible on these. As a newcomer to the craft I thought I had to rush out and purchase all these things that I needed all the right tools to get the job done…and you don’t.

Inner Journey:

A HOT TUB FOR THE MIND

“Imagine a hot tub for the mind. That is what meditation is; it can bathe your mind in relaxing thoughts.”
— Eknath Easwaran

With today’s fast pace of life, too many of us don’t have any sense of how it feels to be free of stress. It’s difficult to relax if we have physical pain or irritation, strong negative emotions or scattered, worrisome thoughts.

The practice of meditation helps us find the peace within that is so elusive in our outer world.

“Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths, or the turning inwards in prayer for five short minutes.”
— Etty Hillesum

Conversation

“Must we always talk for victory, and never once for truth, for comfort, and joy?”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

Conversation is a way for us to connect with people. And yet, how often do we feel like we need to impress someone, or demonstrate somehow that we have important opinions? If we could just drop that, and think more about connecting through Truth, about sharing ourselves rather than our “stuff” – then some meaningful conversation can take place. And we can experience that comfort and joy that leads to real friendship.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: Temperance

Instinct and impulsive action will cause more trouble than they can solve today, so spend more time reasoning things out and being careful about what you say and do. Asking questions is a good idea. It will get you information you need, and show how thorough, bright, and capable you are. It might take a bit longer, but it will save time and effort in the end.
