Are you a little witchling, much like myself, who is ready to jump into the deep end?
You’ve done a bunch of reading, followed a bunch of accounts across social media, you’ve saved a bunch of memes and such.
You are so ready for this.
But you don’t know where to even start.
Sure, you have an idea of how pretty your book of shadows is going to look, or how artful you’ll arrange your altar, or how many amazing spells you’ll perform surrounded by candles and herbs and spirit.
But you’re still a baby witch, you don’t where to begin.
So where do you even begin? Where do you even go?
Well, let’s start with gathering supplies!
I know what you’re thinking, ‘Excuse me, we just went over how I am brand spanking new at this whole witchcraft thing and I have no idea where to start!’
So I’m here to talk some sense into you!
You have supplies! You got junk all over the place you can lose! Think about how all the ancestors and witches from the previous times were able to do so much with what they had on hand! You are not starting off from scratch!
Look through your house! I’m sure you can find at least one (1) of the following some where in a junk drawer or under a couch.
- a pen
- a solitary scrap of paper
- An herb
- A spice
How many did you find? I bet you found things like:
- a pen
- a half-melted candle
- a pad of sticky notes
- or a half-used notebook from grade school
- Some salt or pepper, maybe both
See, you aren’t completely bad off. Just take it slow, and go at your own pace. It’ll all come in time. No one is a master overnight.
And don’t worry about having a beautiful Book of Shadows yet, or even having an organized one. Books are hard to write and organize. So just start a folder or a binder or a notebook. I’ll even write a post about how to write up your Book of Shadows.
Keep learning and growing, little witchlings!
