Ordinary Items - Magickal Uses: Everyday Items that Can Be Used in Your Practice

Social media has created this “image” of witchcraft, this pretty aesthetic that everyone wants to copy. But you don’t need all the fancy pretty things to be a witch. Witchcraft can be messy and ugly and it can be normal, and basic- hiding in plain sight.

When I was young the idea that I needed a bunch of tools and things to be practice magick was put into my head from all the books I read, specifically that big blue book. At the start everything was very Wiccan focused and it all seemed to require certain tools and accessories. 
I was a broke teenager. I couldn’t afford a fancy chalice, an athame, ritual robes, etc. I had one witch shop near me and everything was pricey. 

So for years I didn’t practice much until I realized, screw that I’m doing my own thing with what I have.

Now a wine glass easily substitutes as a ritual chalice or any fancy glass, mug, or tumbler that I feel fits with the spell or ritual I’m doing. 

A letter opener is a perfect stand-in for an athame. An ordinary knife will do the trick, too.

An altar cloth can be a pretty piece of fabric, a fancy tablecloth, or even a nice scarf.

Any type of candle can be used- from birthday candles and tea lights which are great for fast spells.  You can also use jar, pillar, and taper candles from the Dollar Store.

Herbs and spices for spells can come straight from your kitchen cabinet and spice rack. 

Your kitchen is probably filled with things you can use for magick spells and rituals. Or items that can be used as magickal tools.

A Crockpot or Cast Iron Pot
Sugar and Honey
Citrus Fruit- lemons, limes, and oranges 
Fresh Herbs from your garden
Cooking oils- olive
Flour, eggshells, beans, rice

Everyday items around your house can easily be used magickally-

Like jars- I think pretty much every witch has a collection of jars. I save most of my glass jars. I use them for jar spells and for storing ingredients like dried herbs I grow in my garden.

Wind chimes and bells and great for clearing energy around your home.

Craft supplies are amazing items for spells- fabric scraps, string, ribbon, glitter, colored markers, pens and pencils, fancy paper…

One of my favorite things is fancy stationery sets. No one really writes letters anymore. So I use them for writing out spells or sigils and then I put them in the matching envelope and seal them with wax. Depending on the spell they may get tucked away somewhere or burned.

Wax seals- while this may not be a common item it’s not specifically a witchy item. I love, love, love my wax seals. I have a variety of colors and stamps to coordinate with spells.

Mirrors can be used for many types of magick including self-love and protection. 

Notebooks, journals, and sketchbooks are awesome items to turn into spell books and books of shadows. They don’t have to be fancy.

Brooms- you should have at least one broom that can be used just for witchy rituals and spells. And it doesn’t have to be a fancy witch broom, just a simple broom that you declare to be “your” broom. Keep it separate from your cleaning broom. 

Any of these things can be upgraded later, but the important thing is to start your practice.

If you can’t afford fancy things use what you have now. 

Use what works for you.

Book Description:

Evil never really dies. It rises, again and again.  

Now—Kari knows it’s rising inside her. 
After barely defeating wicked Shadow Witch Raven, the wolf-demon knows her turmoil is far from over when her vanquished foe invades her dreams. And a new power stirs within her: thanks to Raven’s cunning, Kari’s potential as the Catalyst has awoken. A conduit for a terrifying, world-cracking force—one that could open at any moment. 
Kari has resisted this new temptation thus far. But Raven again forces her hand, unleashing a demonic abomination to draw her prey out—a deadlier foe than any Kari has faced before. If she taps into this dark new power, she could become strong enough to defend the people she cares about. But the Catalyst has bloodthirsty designs of its own…
If she submits, what new horrors will be inflicted on the world Kari’s come to love?
And when the Catalyst is finished with her at last—what will be left of Kari?

Cultivating a Magical Herb Garden with Crystal Castle

Cultivating a Magical Herb Garden with Crystal Castle
Wednesday, March 29 at 6pm in Fenton MI

Brought to You By The Michigan Black Hat Society

**** You Must Pre-Register & Pre-Pay for This Class **** 

Gardening is medicine for our spirit. When we grow a garden that is in tune with the elements and the Earth’s ebbs and flows, we’re cultivating more than meets the eye. We are, in essence, cultivating magic and medicine. In our modern era, it’s easy to feel profoundly disconnected, not only from nature, but also from our ancestors, sustenance, medicine, and magic. Befriending living plants keeps you close to your roots, literally, and figuratively. The more connected we are with our plants, the more we’re connected to Mother Earth.
In this workshop, we will work with the top magical herbs for a witch’s magical cupboard. We will begin by discussing what each plant will need in terms of care and light, then get into planting them with love and intention while discussing each plant’s magical and medicinal properties.

This is the list of plants that will be available for planting:
White Sage
St John’s Wort
Monarda (Wild Bergamot)

5 different types of plants per person
Please let us know which you intend to plant so that we can have enough supplies.

There may be opportunities to plant more.
You will also need to bring a small box or bin to take your plants home in.

To register fill out this form https://forms.gle/m4mqw6EVxrG4baDMA

Print it in a size that will fit inside the jar of your choice.

To prepare for the spell spend some time in the days before working on self-forgiveness. Meditate and write a letter of forgiveness to yourself or make a list of things you are forgiving yourself for.

To start the spell cleanse yourself (sage, selenite, sound, etc.) then cast a circle (cast it around the entire house so moving around doesn’t break it).

I call upon the North, element of Earth, please nurture us and lend your strength. I call upon East, element of air, please share your clarity and wisdom. I call upon South, element of fire, we need your confidence. I call upon west, element of water; please share with us your compassion. I call upon Spirit; please lend us your guidance and light. Please circle us tonight protect us while we do magic share your power with us.

We welcome the Goddess to our circle, to join us on this spring equinox to bless us with your gift of renewal and rebirth. We come out of the darkness of winter and we shall bloom and rejoice in this new cycle of love and healing.

As you light the incense and gather your materials call upon the Goddess

I call upon the Goddess to set me free

To break the chains binding me

to the hatred of the image I see in the mirror

Set me free from self loathing

Stop my continuous replay of my mistakes and failures

Help me to let go

Help me to forgive myself

Help me love myself

Goddess please hear my plea

Help me learn to love me

As I will so mote it be

Cut letter into strips

Light a black candle and use it to set the trips of your letter or list of forgiveness on fire.

Put them in the cauldron.

As it all burns envision letting go of it all.

Let go of all those things that were weighing you down and holding you back.

Say these words:

I forgive myself

I let the flames take it all away

I let it all go

I burn away the past

I burn away the pain

I burn away the fear

I burn away the self hatred

I burn away the blame

I forgive myself

I am safe

I am loved

I am free

I am forgiven

After everything has burned and the flames go out it is time to raise your vibration.

Do something that raises your energy and vibration- listen to music, dance, use singing bowls, meditate…

Once you have raised your vibration come back to the spell area and light the pink and red candles.

Light the rose incense.

Call upon the Goddess

Goddess hear my plea

Open my eyes to the beauty inside me

Help me accept that I am strong, I am worthy, I am wise, I am deserving

Goddess help me see all that is amazing about me

As I will so mote it be

Now write a love letter to yourself. Describe all the things you love about yourself. Talk about the gratitude you have for your body, your brain, the things about you that are positive, that you love. Be kind and loving to yourself like you would if you were writing to your best friend.

When your letter is complete put in it an envelope or fold it small enough to fit in your jar. Seal it with wax.

Now start putting together your jar. Make it pretty.

Put your letter in the jar.

Seal the jar with wax. Tie a ribbon or string around the jar.

Release the elements of the circle.

Place the jar on your altar or somewhere you will see it daily.
