Are Magical Tools Necessary?

I keep seeing posts from those new to the craft asking questions about the type of material their altars should be or how to properly set up sacred spaces, which tools should be used or what words or gods and goddesses should be envoked.

Is all of this necessary? Well actually no. None of it actually matters. What does matter is intention. While ceremony is beautiful and is traditional for some pagan sects, it is not required or necessary to produce very real and beautiful magic.

The magic comes from what feels natural and the intention of the practitioner. Tools are often used as a way to help hone in on the intention, but can also be overwhelming and distracting to a new practitioner. Work with what you have and simplify the process in the beginning. There is no need for the ceremony unless the ritual is formal and with your group, coven or order.

Get comfortable with your abilities and the process, then add the rest! Much love to you all new and advanced. We are all on our own path and we are all doing great things!

Ritual at the Beach

This past Friday I met up with a good friend of mine, that has never done a ritual before, to do a full moon ritual.

We went down to the beach and watched the sunset and waited for the moon to rise. I went over what we were going to do while we waited.

I brought a mini Ritual kit with me and it was perfect! The handmade paper held up nicely in the breeze and allowed me to write on it without flipping around. I gave her a piece of paper and brought her a candle, brought my crystals and a shell from the sand and set my intentions.

The moon came up and it was perfect! The best part was my ritual spell worked almost instantly. I got home and one of my intentions was instantly waiting for me!

If you are interested in a mini kit we still have a few in the shop. They come with extra goodies not listed picked just for you!

Full Moon

On July 23rd we will be celebrating the next full moon! This full moon explore self live and acceptance start to manifest your intentions.

Cleanse yourself and space. Meditate and focused on healing light surrounding you. Focuse on your heart beat, your breath. Each breath in imaginge what you want to manifest. Each out breath blow it out into the universe.

Light your candle write your manifestation on your paper and burn it. Ground yourself however you feel best. Simple way is to put your hands on the ground and let them go cold.

Drink water, eat something light and journal about what you have learned during your meditation.
