I haven’t meditated in a while. I haven’t lit a candle. I light incense in the bath but I’m less viglant about it going out.
I feel empty and confused. Part of it is needed to clear and cleanse my altar space. I got an altar but the room it is in needs some serious decluttering and I noticed when sitting at the altar my inability to just breathe and focus.
I also am very grateful to the tumblr witches/pagans/wiccans/etc I have found and followed but suddenly, I’m also overwhelmed. I KNOW that Wicca isn’t the only form of witchcraft but I did always think witchcraft was part of a religion. I always thought there was a framework of some kind. And of course, it’s good to learn and grow and lose ignorance but it can also make you lose sight and your frame of reference. It suddenly makes the world too big. It’s like in high school when you have a teacher that says “You can do your research project on ANYTHING” and suddenly your mind is blank. Your interests have fade or all feel equally relevant or pointless.
What I’m trying to say is, I need help back to my path. I know I need to meditate but as someone with ADD and OCD, it’s very difficult to make myself do and make myself consistant. I know I have to read but there are only so many hours in the day and often reading makes me fingers twitch and my heart long to do something. And as soon as the book is down, I’m not sure WHAT to do. So I knit, or eat, or play video games and my practice is abandoned for another day.
I know there is no right way to practice witchcraft. I know everyone’s practice is unique. But what do you do when your focus on your craft is evading you? What do you do to re-energize yourself? What do you read? What candles do you light? What deity do you speak to? What stones do you hold?
I am honestly very interested in as much feedback as possible. Respond, reblog, send me a message or ask. I have looked within and now need to reach out.
Again, casting a wide net.
Knitting and spinning both can be a meditative act for me. Maybe a more active form of meditation would be more useful to you?
Hiking out to a wild place that is meaningful to me is the best way for me to re-connect when I’ve drifted off.
Reblogged mainly for copperbadge, though spiderine will enjoy them as well…
A Roman walks into a bar, holds up two fingers, and says ”Five beers, please.”
i dont get it
No one explain it
After the Roman drinks the beers, he tells the bartender, “I want a martinus.”
"Don’t you mean a martini?”
"If I wanted two, I would’ve asked for them."
i cant stop laughing omg
lalalala—lee replied to your post “avarosierthewicked replied to your post “ waiting for my pizzas to get…”I was going to have enchiladas for dinner, but I had a fire instead, so now we are having pizza
Fire is not a delicious flavoring in most cases. Everything okay?
No worries, it was a small, contained fire caused by a failure to use the broiler properly. Darling wife obtained pizza and tomorrow I will try this “adult” thing again.

That’s why I weave in the ends as I knit! LIFE CHANGING.
But I never think I’m doing it right! I have a hat I finished LAST YEAR and since it’s mine, I wear it anyway even though therer are ends hanging out in the crown.
And yes, I’ve read books and watched people and accept imperfections but still! Weaving in ends haunts me.
if you weave in the ends as you go, ripping back is that much more awful though.
