Over the last month I’ve hardly managed to do any witchcraft. Yep, you read that right. I’ve been majorly slacking on my magical practice. It seems like every time I turn around there’s something else I have to do, more work, more cleaning, more everything! I was definitely not happy about how much I wasn’t practicing magic.

Musings On Trust, Magic, & My Place In The Universe

Without trust my magic is weak and witchcraft feels useless and flat.
