These are the last four prompts! I’ve been posting for the last several weeks, on Wednesdays. These posts have been tagged #WitchyWednesday on Twitter. I’m happy to clarify anything and respond to any questions or comments. Feel free to contact me as well! As for the prompts, they’re originally from a Tumblr post by user Baduhennasraven.
Here’s this week’s prompts:
- What would my perfect witchy day be like?
- How much is witchcraft woven into my daily life; is this too much, too little or just enough?
- How do I create a sacred/witchy space?
- What, if anything, in my mundane life influences my witchcraft?
What would my perfect witchy day be like?
I don’t know if I have a “perfect witchy day”. Maybe a sabbat with friends would be fun. Something like getting a little gussied up and casting a Circle with friends to celebrate the Turning of the Wheel with a fire pit and some food.
How much is witchcraft woven into my daily life; is this too much, too little or just enough?
Magic is part of my daily life. While I don’t always go about casting spells and doing full rituals, I enjoy folding a bit of magic into my everyday life.
Like in the kitchen. A kitchen is a place of magic no matter how you slice it. Presto: ingredients become nourishment! Even if it’s as simple as macaroni and cheese, adding a few herbs or just stirring with intent can make any meal magical.
How do I create a sacred/witchy space?
Any space can be sacred, but it’s easier when it’s a clean space.
Take for example my “office”. It’s a closet that we turned into a writing space for me because we didn’t need the clothing storage space. It’s cluttered and a mess right now, so if I wanted to make it a little more magical, I’d straighten it up, vacuum the floors, and light some incense to do a smoke cleansing.
If I need a formal witchy space, I’ll sweep and cast a Circle.
What, if anything, in my mundane life influences my witchcraft?
My mundane life is fairly intertwined with my magical life. I cast as I crochet and knit, and did so as well when I was trying to learn to spin yarn as well. When I cook or bake, I try to incorporate specific counts, herbs and spices, and the magical into the mundane in general.
